    Summary

    As she approached the actually rather unremarkable looking young man, she felt a swell of doubt. Was he really who she’d thought he was? Spider-Man had been a giant of a man, someone she could easily imagine at the front of her train, gripping hundreds of webs with power enough to crush the train car into the shape of his body.

    This boy looked barely able to carry his overstuffed backpack. With his Oxford shirt and jeans and neatly combed hair, he could have been the poster child for a 1950s science scholarship. Not someone you imagined facing down an eight-armed psychopath on a speeding train.

    Half convinced she’d imagined the whole thing, Maggie crossed the diner and stepped up to his table. After a moment he noticed her, lifting his attention from an open book full of equations and cracker crumbs to look right at her.

    All doubt vanished when Maggie looked into his blue eyes and round face. It was him. No question. It was Spider-Man, right here at her table, waiting to order breakfast from her.

    Summary

    Foggy had dropped the first clod on the coffin lid. The echo of earth hitting the hollow box stays with him through the days that follow. An emptiness. That’s what Matt is now. An empty box, an empty apartment, an empty life.

    He knows there’s a body, somewhere beneath the rubble. Bodies. Well. Parts.

    Summary

    A word of warning, reader.
    This story starts at Nonsense, and goes downhill from there. On to darker things, and Goblin Kings, and dancing and despair. So take a little breather, and enter if you dare.

    (Yes, this is a Labyrinth AU. Don't worry, the rest of it doesn't rhyme.)

    Summary

    Matt drags himself to his knees, gravel digging painfully through the thin fabric of his pants. The world blinks in and out of existence and he pats the wet concrete around him, trying to locate the discarded crowbar. Finally, he finds it, tosses it to one of the men – “Hold on”, his voice is hoarse. He rocks back on his knees, arms outstretched and face pointed away – “God forgive me”.

    Or, what if Matt had took that hit from the crowbar in Season 3/Episode 1?
