    Summary

    He's not a superhero anymore, not really. Without the backing of the Avengers or Stark Industries, Spider-Man is more of a street-level vigilante. The police and media are just as ready to paint him as a menace as they are a friendly neighborhood Spider-Man. Though he has no plans to ever be unmasked again, Peter realizes that it might help to get a lawyer.

    It's a good thing he knows one.

    Summary

    The Jedi Council was nervous. The Jedi Council was very, very nervous, so much so that the usual meditation-and-releasing-emotions-into-the-Force shtick had failed and High General Mace Windu had broken out the spotchka.

    If anything called for drinks, it was discovering that your whole Order was sitting on a primed thermal detonator - well. More like a million of them.

    Summary

    The problem wasn’t really the talking. Geralt had heard humans talking constantly every time he’d been within a quarter-mile of civilization his entire adult life. No, it wasn't the talking at all. The trouble with Jaskier was that he cared about the answers.

    In which Geralt learns to face himself, his relationships, and his place in a human-dominated world. Taking place in the gap between the meeting in Posada and the banquet in Cintra, this story explores growth, trauma recovery, mental health, friendship, family, and societal bigotry.

    Summary

    It's not so much that Tony is upset that everyone keeps forgetting his birthdays— he's an adult, he can handle his teammates, the people sharing his house with him, his friends, not remembering to even wish him a happy birthday, but he can't help but feel that— actually yes, he is upset.
    Tony is upset that people keep forgetting his birthday. He doesn't forget their birthdays! He, in fact, goes out of his way to give them the best birthdays that money can buy! Birthdays are important, he knows they are important, and he wants to show everyone how important they are, and they are his friends, right???
    So why can't they return the favor?

    Follow Tony through the years, jumping from birthday party to birthday party, as he tries to come to terms with living with and having expectations of a group of rag-tag, superhero, friend-adjacent teammates and I try to fix the MCU one plot hole at a time.

    Summary

    The last thing Peter sees is Tony's horrified, heartbroken expression leaning over him. The guilt in his eyes is almost worse than the burning pain that's taking Peter apart piece by piece. The world starts to go dark.

    There's a flash of gold and green. For one moment, he finds himself standing amongst the Guardians and others. And then darkness again. It feels like blinking; an extended period of nothingness that ends as abruptly as it begins. One moment there’s nothing, the next there’s light.

    “Easy,” a woman says. Her words are gentle, and carry a slight accent that he can’t place. "I'm called Wonder Woman. What's your name?"
