    Summary

    "Cause tonight I'm feelin' like an astronaut
    Sending SOS from this tiny box
    And I lost all signal when I lifted off
    Now I'm stuck out here and the world forgot
    Can I please come down, come down
    'Cause I'm tired of drifting round and round
    Can I please come down?"

    -Astronaut by Simple Plan

    ~~~~~~

    And then May was shot.

    Foolishly, childishly, Peter hoped Iron Man would swoop in and save the day again.

    He hoped and hoped and hoped.

    And Ben drank and drank and drank.

    As Ben grew worse, and their fridge grew empty, as Peter’s face became more bruised, and his powers grew, Peter realized, you can’t depend on superheroes.

    So Peter created his own hero - Spiderman.

    ~~~~~~

    OR 5 times Peter met an Avenger, and the one time Spiderman met them (all while he struggles with an abusive uncle at home)

    ~~~~~~

    Has child abuse and minor depressing thoughts (nothing too graphic or bad though)

    Summary

    After the events at the Department of Mysteries in June—and all that came after—Harry finds himself once again stranded at Number Four Privet Drive. With only his own thoughts to keep him company, he takes to writing letters to the only person he thinks can help, if only he were still alive to do so.

    As it turns out, though, sometimes help can arrive in even the most unexpected of forms too.

    Summary

    “As many of you know, Stark Industries has spent years developing technology to make life better. Easier. More user-friendly. We wanted to take the world and its contents and squish them into one convenient package. And let me tell you, this package is about as squishy as it gets.”

    Tony snapped his fingers twice, and the same curtain he’d walked out from behind earlier started shifting.

    “It is my great pleasure to introduce all of you to my Proprietary Electronic Two-factor Experiential Robot. Or, as I like to call him, P.E.T.E.R.”

    And with a dramatic flourish of Tony’s hand, the curtain finally parted and out walked what was unmistakably...A teenage boy.

    Summary

    Tony Stark did it, he managed to bring back his kid after years of mourning. Peter's new relationship with Tony is fragile and frankly terrifying. Minutes after being brought back from the dead he's witnessing what he thinks are Tony's final moments. He returns to the city, to May and her new husband Steven. Hoping to be comforted after losing a father figure, he's faced with the reality of living with his childhood rapist. Peter Parker's suffering doesn't end there. The once-beloved sense of family he'd found in May has all but dissipated since he's returned. She's cold and distant and doesn't pay any mind to what Skip does to Peter behind closed doors. His only outlet is Spider-Man, but eventually, that becomes too much to handle. Unbeknownst to him, he's got a family close by willing to help put him back together again.

    Summary

    “I used to sleep there,” Harry snaps.

    He’s breathing hard. He feels like he’s run a marathon, even though he’s just sitting there uselessly, staring at a perfectly ordinary cupboard.

    “What?” Sirius says.

    (For the Bad Things Happen Bingo, prompt: Childhood Trauma).
