    Summary

    Tony's having a hard time remembering how he crossed the distance from the grassy knoll to Peter, and he can't really recollect how his hands ended up on either side of the kid's face. Before he knows it, he's gripping the kid's shoulders just as tightly as Rhodey had gripped his own, his hands trembling. "Pete, kid, c'mon. Say something. If you don't say something I'm gonna seriously lose it here. Don't fucking do this."

    A pair of headphones rattle around Pete's neck. Tony's shaking him.

    Maybe he'll come to, like a half-drowned puppy you pull out of the gutter.

    Then just as suddenly he's not shaking him, because Quill is prying his hands back from the kid protectively, and Strange's palm is pushing Tony's shoulder to put some distance between him and the boy. Everyone knows Peter is a special case, for him. A special mission set aside to complete. He promised May. He promised Peter. He held him while he disintegrated. He washed him down a sink and apologized in multitudes. Someone seethes, "What do you mean, he didn't come back? What do you mean?" and he recognizes it belatedly as his own voice.

    *******

    Everyone comes back, when the snap is undone. Or, well — almost everyone.

    Summary

    The problem with being the Guardian of Wonder was that Wonder was not Awe. That feeling of surprise and admiration was certainly part of Wonder, but so was the unstoppable desire to know things. To learn, to explore, to understand.

    North did not understand. And that unrest, that constant wondering kept him awake this night.

    If Jack was the only one Manny had brought back and abandoned.

    Summary

    The age of gods may be over, they may have shed their responsibilities like snakeskin many years ago when humans stopped believing, but do not for one second thing these stories don’t ring true. That once, long ago, they did not walk this earth. That they do not do so still.
    Do not be foolish, and do not let ignorance rule you, little one.
    Sit.
    Sit and learn. For knowledge is power. And it is a precious, fleeting and fragile thing.
    So come and learn. Learn of times long forgotten and stories half remembered. Learn of the gods and their adventures. Learn of their triumphs and defeats and heartbreaks.
    Learn that no matter that they are gods or legends or heroes; they are as human as you and I.

    or

    Patton cares A Lot™, Roman struggles through the burdens of fatherhood, and your heart gets ripped out. It's fine though.

    Summary

    Prince discovers that the other sides have never had dreams before and decides that he must remedy that. One miscommunication, several poor attempts at flirting, and a boatload of self-loathing later, three of the sides find themselves in a relationship—and Anxiety is not one of those sides. He would only cause nightmares, after all. (It takes a sword fight, an argument with Anxiety’s self-loathing personified, and a sobfest to convince him that this is not the case.)
