    Summary

    An old panic gripped me—the breathless fear of being forgotten, being lost. Would anyone remember me when I was gone? Would someone think to lay a flower down on my grave and say some fond nothings like, “Was a pretty cool guy, that Lester,” while wiping off a single dramatic tear rolling down their cheek?

    Oh, who was I kidding. So what if no one remembered? There wasn’t much I was proud to be remembered by anyway.

    After defeating Python and bringing down Nero, Phoebus Apollo reclaims his godhood. He is glorious once more. But for some reason, he can't quite make himself go back to how things were before.

    (A Character Study of Various Gods, including but not limited to: Apollo, Artemis, Hermes, Aphrodite, Ares, Athena, Hephaestus, Dionysus, and maybe Zeus)

    Summary

    “Peter,” MJ says, pressing her thumb and forefinger into her eyes. “Do you know what I think?”

    “No,” he says. “What do you think?”

    She says, “I think you need a good fuck. I do. I think that if you and Johnny make hot, delicious love, this weirdness will go away. Weirdness is just undefined horniness more often than you might think.”

    “In what world is that a reality?” Peter wails around his fries. “Mary Jane, Mary Jane. Mary Jane. If I—” Peter leans closer and whispers, “—sleep with him,” he returns to full volume, “I will fall in love with him.”

    MJ raises her eyebrows. “Did you fall in love with me because of my juicy puss, Pete?”

    “It didn’t hurt!”

    Summary

    You watch as the world burns away, again and again around you. You see the rise and fall of the Fabulous Killjoys. You see the soul of the desert change over time. You are the one that sets BLi ablaze; you are the bomb that turns it to dust.

    But every bomb starts as scraps—metal and batteries and chemicals set into a chain reaction. The metal is your childhood. The battery is the power you never realize you have. The chemicals are the truth that you spend years uncovering and learning.

    This is how you build a bomb.

    Summary

    Peter finds a baby in a dumpster and takes her home to the Baxter Building and his sleeping husband, Johnny.

    ***
    Peter climbs through the window as quietly as he can, but to no avail. Johnny wakes up the minute he hears the crying. Clearly, babies are not good at being stealthy.

    “Peter,” he says, flicking on the lights and frowning over at him. “Peter, why do you have a baby? Have you started kidnapping babies now? Jonah’s gonna have a field day if he finds out, Peter.”

    “I did not kidnap a baby, Flamebrain,” Peter hisses, rocking the baby back and forth desperately, but she won’t stop crying.
