    Summary

    Remaining neutral about Eddie Brock was much easier in principle when he’s the unseen ex of your girlfriend, a little harder in practise when you’ve helped him through the worst week of his life.

    “Pay up.” Anne flops down next to him on the couch two months later. They’re still fishing bits of the Life Foundation Rocket out of the Pacific, but no evil or chaotic neutral ex-terrestrial goo has been recovered. Supposedly.

    Dan fishes the promised $20 out of his wallet, “He finally told you.”
    -

    Dr Dan Lewis would like to stop feeling like the third billed in the romantic comedy that is his life.

    Summary

    That’s us, Eddie, Venom says suddenly, with a bizarre amount of intensity. We’re like these two fools.

    Eddie squints at the screen for a second before he understands. “What, married?”


    Venom is well aware that they live in a romantic comedy. Eddie isn’t, but he’ll get the picture eventually.

    Summary

    Venom goes about love in every wrong way he knows how. Thank god for late night television.

    “Me. They invited me for dinner,” Eddie insists, trying again to make his hair look some specific way in the mirror. He’s given up and started over three times.

    It’s a double date. Like on that show.

    “What—what are you watching that there are double dates? Jesus. I should cancel cable. Make you read a book instead.”

    No!

    Summary

    No part of Eddie’s day job is fun, exactly, but the clubs are the symbiote’s least favorite, and not just because they’d rather be doing hero work. People look at Eddie like they’re hungry for him— men and women both. The way Anne used to look at him, the memories tucked away but vivid; memories Eddie never calls up willingly, because when they come, he hurts.

    The symbiote would like to fix it, but it feels like a wound that can’t be healed all at once. Something that needs coaxing, and care, and time.

    Something that needs delicacy, but they want to try.

    Eddie draws stares when they go to the club, blatant interest, and the symbiote doesn’t like it. Eddie belongs to them, now.

    People call them lots of things, most of it unkind, but the symbiote has never felt monstrous quite like it does on nights like this— with men and women running their hands down Eddie’s arm, pink lips bitten between bright white teeth.
