    Summary

    El takes a deep breath, absorbing the scent of pine, rain, detergent and sweat. Her hand curls around his sweater. “We don’t end,” she says, firmly. “Not us.”

    This, to El, is a certainty. Her love for Mike isn’t a thing she ever questions. As soon as she’d understood the word with its multi-faceted meanings, she’d known that was what she felt. There’s never any wavering in that. She loves Mike. The sky is blue. A fall from the quarry into the water can shatter your bones. Will is her brother. Eyes are for seeing, ears are for hearing.

    Summary

    “What are we dealing with here?”

    She doesn’t mean to rush him, but she’s only now realizing that they should have planned some kind of course of action for confronting this apparition, and it’s making her panicky. She’d spent the entire walk so worried about him that she’d forgotten they were about to confront a monster, and she needs to make up for lost time. Fast.

    He blinks, again, and finally tears his eyes away from the woman. “What?”

    “What kind of alien is she?” asks Amy, urgently. “What did she do? How many people has she killed? Is she going to sprout a plunger and start saying 'Exterminate'? Wh-”

    (or, there's a normal-looking blonde woman in the doctor's room, and amy really has no idea what's going on. but she's going to figure it out.)

    Summary

    “Where’s Happy?” Morgan asked after a minute or two, determinedly moping out the window.
    “He’s got the flu,” Peter said slowly, still turning the puzzle over in his head. “Didn’t you get your dad’s text?”
    “I didn’t look.” She shifted. “Why’d he send you?”
    The accusation in the question stung. He’d spent over a decade as the object of Morgan’s blind affection. Losing it now, without any warning and no explanation, made his whole perspective shift off-kilter.

    --
    Or, Morgan's angry with Peter, Peter's oblivious, and Tony's self-sacrificial streak goes a little too far.

    Summary

    Peter knows exactly five things about Howard Stark.

    One: the guy was a genius. Two: he wasn’t winning any father-of-the-year awards anytime soon. Three: Howard Stark keeps intense security measures on all cutting-edge technology. Especially those that could possibly be modified, sometime in the future, to navigate through time. Four: as much as Peter adores all Howard Stark’s technological accomplishments, he isn’t exactly looking forward to talking with the man. Five: he has to. Howard is their only way home.

    -

    Peter and Tony (but mostly Peter) meet Howard Stark when an accident takes them back in time.
