    Summary

    Homecoming A/U.

    Ben and May divorced before Peter’s parents died, so when Ben is murdered Peter goes into foster care. It takes just a tiny taste of superpowers for Peter to decide he doesn’t want to put up with his horrible foster father anymore—the streets are infinitely more appealing. All he wants is to be Spider-Man anyway.

    So he leaves.

    Simple.

    Simple, that is, until Iron Man needs Spider-Man’s help. Peter isn’t about to turn down an opportunity to fight alongside Tony Freaking Stark, but he also isn’t going to let his hero know that his recruit is a fifteen-year-old homeless dropout. So they strike a deal. Peter will help Tony. In return, the mask stays on.

    And that’s when things get complicated.

    Summary

    Previously titled This Could Be Really, Really Good or Really, Really Bad

    Peter Parker had been Spider-Man for five months and things were looking up. The beautiful and intelligent Gwen Stacy was showing interest in him. He found budding friendships with the Avengers. His reputation was growing in New York City. Spider-Man seemed to be at the top of his game and Peter Parker was finally regaining his footing after the death of his Uncle Ben.

    But as Gwen lamented his lack of attentiveness, the Avengers sniffed around Spider-Man's secret identity, and a mysterious man with a strange power and a terrifying plot emerged, Peter realized that he still had a lot to learn about leading this life he'd chosen.

    And with tragedy poised over his head, ready to fall, Peter was going to need to learn fast.

    Summary

    Peter and Jake have gotten along since he was a kid. Jake was Peter's go to when he had a problem, his first line of defense, and his best friend. They were practically brothers. The Nine-Nine were like a second family. So it makes sense that as he gets older and things get tougher, his first instinct is to turn to his family when he feels like he can't go to May and Ben. (Starts after the spider bite, before Homecoming)
