    Summary

    "We don't even ask for happiness, just a little less pain."

    __

    The wool blanket is navy with some intricate threads of cream woven in. He traces a stitch with the pad of his thumb, but stops and frowns when he notices that his knuckles have healing yellow bruises on them.

    He wonders where that's from, then subsequently stiffens and wonders where the hell he is.

    Which, you know, leads him to his next question: Who is he?

    __

    Or: Peter wakes up with no memories in a remote cabin where a mysterious man tells him that they're married.

    __

    Summary

    Tony sits in relative darkness, the TV on mute, Friday running searches like she has been every day for the past month. A month, since Quentin Beck’s grand plan crumpled underneath him on that bridge. A month, since a flash of light was able to distract Peter just as he was about to bring Beck down. A month, since Beck snatched him, since both of them disappeared. An entire. Month.

    I’ll keep you updated. I promise.

    I love you, kid. Rhodey’s on his way, alright? He’s coming. He’s gonna go as fast as he can.

    I love you too. I’ll be okay. I promise. I can do this.

    The last thing Tony heard Peter say.

    Rhodey, Happy and Fury traversed the London landscape immediately afterwards. They found the glasses, but not Spider-Man. There was footage enough to incriminate Beck for what he was, but somehow, nobody was able to get a shot of when he grabbed Peter. Peter was knocking him around, looked like he was getting the upper hand, and then that flash of light.

    Gone. Gone.

    Summary

    She’s crying now. Openly. It’s tearing him up, hearing it, hearing what the hell she’s saying. “—they didn’t let him—they didn’t even let us get him a good lawyer, they locked everything out and he just had this—public defender that I’m sure was paid off. It was so orchestrated, Tony, the whole thing, and he’s—God, they sped it along over a month and they—convicted him—he’s in the Raft. They’ve got him in the Raft.”

    She keeps talking, but he can’t hear it.

    He can’t hear anything but the ringing in his ears. The way his bones creak. The way his face is contorting, his mouth dropping, his eyes straining with fear and pure, unadulterated rage.

    Summary

    At 7:36 pm on the 12th of May 2016, Tony Stark is put in the Room.
    A twelve-by-twelve-foot shed, soundproofed, double locked. It becomes his home. It has to be, because there’s nowhere else.
    At 4:22 pm on the 15th of June 2017, Peter Parker is put in the Room.
    They make a living under duress, fearing at every moment the entry of their captor. Confinement halts their lives in their tracks, changes them both for good: breaks them and brings them together simultaneously.

    “If someone has everything they need, but nobody, do they have everything? Or nothing?”
