    Summary

    Ch. 3 - "In an idle sort of way, none of them had expected for Noir’s blood to be black. None of them had expected that their sudden appearance would be just the distraction that the Lizard had needed. None of them had expected for that very black and very unexpected blood to be painting the wall behind him as Lizard’s claws dug into his flesh, and sent his body flying limply to hit the wall with a wet-sounding smack." - A story based on recovery, color, and the knowledge that you're not alone.

    Summary

    Jefferson Davis can’t lie to himself, as much as he tries. He and Miles have always butted heads-- his son just has this carefree, unfettered approach to life that Davis' strict, no-nonsense methods seemingly have no place in. A large part of him loves Miles for that, truly, even though sometimes Jefferson feels as if he's just slowing him down.

    But now, with Miles away at school on weeknights-- seemingly always busy with something or another-- Jefferson has never felt that gaping space between himself and his son yawn wider.

    Enter the new Spider-Man. A free-spirited kid, five foot nothing and standing between the whole city and danger as if it’s his job, breaking a long series of minor laws with careless ease, and giving a certain cop heart palpitations on a regular basis.

    Jefferson Davis can’t lie to himself anymore. No matter how much he hates vigilantes-- especially of the masked variety-- a child is a child. And a dad is a dad.

    Summary

    Miles saves the multiverse, gets sweet new powers, goes through a fairly-traumatic origin story, and has four whole days of riding high on a wave of new-and-improved teenaged self-esteem before some douche on the street looks him dead in the eye and says, "You couldn't have waited until Peter Parker was cold in his grave before stealing his name, huh?"

    Summary

    Venom goes about love in every wrong way he knows how. Thank god for late night television.

    “Me. They invited me for dinner,” Eddie insists, trying again to make his hair look some specific way in the mirror. He’s given up and started over three times.

    It’s a double date. Like on that show.

    “What—what are you watching that there are double dates? Jesus. I should cancel cable. Make you read a book instead.”

    No!

    Summary

    The worst thing about surviving the Inferi and their grasping hands are the showers. Stepping under the warm water, with nothing but his fear and his hands, feels like drowning again, like the water filling his lungs, the mark on his arm burning. (“Use a cleaning spell”, Minerva says, every day at the breakfast table, slicing her bread in two. He shrugs and reaches for the coffee. It doesn’t feel clean enough, he wants to say, and I do not know if I can trust my hands. “I don’t like them”, he says instead, and puts three spoonfuls of sugar into his cup. He can feel his mother’s disapproving frown, as if she was standing next to him, her hand cold and hard on his shoulder.)
