    Summary

    Peter couldn’t stand it any longer. Any of it.

    He had to do something. He couldn’t stand the idea of Christmas morning arriving without even the tree up. And he knew May wouldn’t do it. She was at work right now, but Peter knew the second she came home she would lock herself in her room, and he would have to listen to her cry. Over and over again. Not being able to do anything.

    Peter sighed. He’d never set up the tree on his own before, and just like everything else these days, it seemed like a monumental and insurmountable task. But he had to do it. He knew it would make May feel better, even if she wouldn’t admit it. It would be wonderful for her to come home and see the apartment look a little bit more like itself.
    --
    Or, a story about two Christmases, a year apart, but two totally different experiences. And the family Peter lost and gained along the way.

    Summary

    It was nice, for a bakery he supposed.

    Then he approached the display cabinet.

    And the foreboding slammed into him. Because every product had letters next to it. Letters. GF, DF, V, O, VGN.

    What. The. Fuck?

    Lifting his eyes to the chalkboard menu spread across the back wall Louis felt physically ill. ‘Gluten-free’, ‘organic’, ‘vegan’, ‘paleo’, ‘dair-…’ Wait, what the fuck was a paleo? He had entered some hipster-trash establishment and it was more than time to get out.

     
    OR

     

    Louis is a single dad and Harry works at the newly opened bakery down the street.

    Summary

    January seventh. Seven days since the start of 2015, and seven days since his father’s death.

    The bastard, he thinks bitterly. The past year Derek Hale had made it blatantly obvious that he hated his scrawny guts, taking every given opportunity to shove him up against a wall, growl threats in his ears and roll his eyes whenever he stepped into the room, muttering some snide comment about how spastic or idiotic he was.

    So why did he fucking volunteer to take him in?

    Summary

    Given that over the course of the past eleven months Peter Parker hasn't contracted so much as a head-cold, the teenager thought it safe to assume that the whole 'irradiated spider bite' gig had equipped him with an immune system of steel that rivalled Captain America's.

    So when he wakes up one night in the midst of the worst asthma attack he's suffered in almost eight years, neither he nor the rest of the team can think of a logical explanation.
    And everything sort of goes downhill from there.

    (Set in an Alternative Universe where Peter moved into the Avengers’ Tower following the events of The Amazing Spider-Man.)
