    Summary

    “Well, what did you write about in your admissions essay, Mr. Stark?”

    “Abandonment issues and daddy trauma,” says Tony without missing a beat.

    “Oh, God,” says Peter.

    “In my defense, I was fifteen and minors couldn’t go to therapy.”

    “Oh, Jesus,” it’s Harley’s turn to say.

    “Going down the list of names in the Holy Trinity now, are we?”
    --
    Or: Peter struggles to write his college admissions essay, Harley wants him to write about his trauma, and Tony won't shut up about pesto.

    Summary

    “Peter Parker,” Cindy says. Peter’s head snaps up so fast that it almost looks inhuman. “Did Tony Stark just waltz in and pick up his child in the background of your Zoom call?”

    Peter freezes. Wide-eyed, with ‘guilty’ written on his forehead in 72, bold, Times New Roman font. It takes a solid thirty seconds before he can put himself together enough to click the unmute button.

    “I—no?” Peter says. His voice is startlingly high pitched and his expression is nothing short of horrified.

    Damn, if that isn’t anything but a confession.

    Or: a day in the life of the quarantined high school spider-kid, as seen through the eyes of his first-period chemistry class.

    Summary

    The last thing he remembers is leaving school. It was a half day, as he’d finished his exams early, texted May about staying over at Ned’s place, sent another text to MJ and then a twitch of his spider senses--

    Then a pinch at his neck, like a bee sting, but deeper. Darkness. Then here.

    Huh. Kidnapped. That’s new. If he was less emotionally dead from finals and sleep deprivation, he’d probably have a stronger and much more appropriate reaction to that.

    At least he's got Captain America and the Winter Soldier to keep him company.

    Summary

    “Pfah! What good’re cops in a town like this?” The old man waves dismissively. “Nah, Phantom’ll take care of things, same as he always does.”
    Dean pauses in fishing out his wallet. “Phantom? Who’s Phantom?”
