    Summary

    “What are you?” Kilgrave wonders aloud, breathless, his nail beds white with pressure where they're clamped around Will's skull, flattening his hair.

    “A former FBI profiler, an unstable special agent. A mental patient, a fisherman. A murderer. A patchwork psyche stitched together. A broken, blood-drenched nobody. One half of a whole.”

    “And an aspiring poet, apparently,” Kilgrave quips, releasing Will's head in order to ever-so-slowly pull Will's glasses from his face, fold them, and slide them into his own pocket. “Well now, I do believe you're worth keeping. At least for the time being. Will, Jessica... come along.”

    Summary

    “A field trip?” Peter said.

    “Just a little family outing,” Sue said, passing him a knife. He took it and obediently started helping her cut the crusts off a small mountain of sandwiches. “We thought you might like to join us.”

    “I mean, it sounds great,” Peter said. “But work is a little swamped and somehow whenever I take off with you guys I always manage to go missing for two months. My landlady does not love it.”

    “We really could use the extra set of hands. Also,” Sue said, “someone needs to keep an eye on Johnny.”

    Peter groaned.

    Peter's spider-sense starts acting up on a Future Foundation field trip. He and Johnny, recently returned from the Negative Zone, have to pretend to be married. These two things are related.

    Summary

    “I’m not—” Peter chokes on his swollen tongue. His teeth feel tacky and loose in his mouth. He swallows, and tries again, “I’m not a kid.”

    Peter rises onto his elbows. His arms shake with the effort, and something shifts around in his side. Sandman watches him squirm and shake and gag, bringing up more blood than bile. Peter’s never been this badly hurt before. Not even after Toomes.

    “You’re a brave kid,” Sandman says, ignoring Peter’s sputtering disagreement. “That’s not a compliment, by the way. You’re going to get yourself killed."

     

    Anon asked for: 'how about something where Peter gets in over his head during a fight or on patrol and ends up injured with no access to help?'

    Summary

    Janey Storm freezes in the doorway.

    Pen is half naked. Her boney, freckled shoulders and the faded sports bra she’s had since high school are on display. Bruises from this morning’s encounter with the Scorpion haven’t had time to heal yet—purples and sickly greens tesselate over her ribs and toned stomach.

    Janey can see every unedited part of Pen: her open knuckles, blood a sharp red against her pale skin; her unbrushed hair, grown out past Pen’s jaw like a tangle of weeds; her loose jeans, slung low on her hips, with fraying ends and ripped knees. Janey stands there and sees Pen Parker, a half naked, wide-eyed girl choking on her heart.

    “It’s occupied,” Pen manages.

    --

    Or: a universe where Johnny and Peter were born girls.
