Reality never misses a chance to rub Tony’s face into the fact he can’t keep anyone safe.

“Did you know that we're secretly married and have an illegitimate child?” Tony asks blandly over breakfast, swiping butter onto his piece of toast.
It says a lot, May thinks, about the absolute shitshow her past year has been, that she doesn’t even bat an eye.
(or; between sundays, tony and may find solid ground in a shaky world.)

“You’re our one billionth customer!” a man in a suit exclaimed enthusiastically. He rushed forward and shook Peter’s hand. “Congratulations!”
A news camera was shoved in front of their faces, filming their shocked reactions as a woman rushed forward and handed Peter a large check for—
“Five wishes!” she exclaimed giddily. “Yours to demand at any time! Congratulations!”
Peter and Tony exchanged a look of panicked confusion.
Tony just wanted to buy Peter some new clothes. He did not want to be mobbed by Manhattan Mall's version of Make a Freaking Wish.

...and one thing that always remains the same.
(SPOILERS FOR INFINITY WAR)
Peter knows he’s different now.
The first three months were like a bubble. He didn’t think about the newness of his old life, he didn’t think about the state of the world now that it had been saved—he just worried. Worried about Tony and Steve recovering. Worried about May worrying about him. Worried about everything in general—he didn’t allow himself specifics because specifics didn’t make sense, not yet. He just focused on his routine, kept it normal, the same schedule every day so he didn’t throw himself off.
It felt like the bubble popped when the party ended, and everything became clearer. The differences in who he is now were highlighted, like there was a spotlight on his every move, like everybody could see the invisible scars the world-ending experience left on him.
The first thing he notices is the sleeping. Or lack thereof.
(a follow up to my story "the rattle of their hearts" from Peter's POV. You can read this one without having read the original, but it would make more sense if you have read it!)

The one where Peter jumps but not to kill himself.

(...and one time he’s stuck alone.)
“I wonder if Pepper’s reported me missing yet,” Tony says, with an exaggerated sigh. “I wonder if this is some kind of scheme to kidnap me or something.”
“I think the ride’s just broken,” Peter says.
“Today of all goddamn days,” Tony says, exasperation clear in his voice and in his eyes. “Ruining our trip—”
“It’s not ruined,” Peter says. “Look, we’re hanging out."
“Real quality time,” Tony huffs. “Us, a few other trapped members of the general public, and a handful of animatronic pirates. Drunk pirates. Repeating themselves.”
