"Nah." Peter is holding Ned's ankles, and every time Coach Jones walks by Ned does a half hearted push-up. "He gave me peanuts and told me he wasn't dead? I think he's lonely."
Every so often, a fic drops into your lap that you weren't expecting.
This is another fic from the MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe) - this time focussing on Spider-Man and his friendship with... Loki?!
"Kid," says Tony Stark wearily, "Please gimme a reason Loki's been spotted talking to Spiderman that isn't 'I wanted to be his friend'. Please. Tell me you can do that."
Peter hums. "I could?"
"And that reason would be the truth?"
It's also random in places in a way I totally approve of.
I love it when Spider-Man is goofy and random - not only is it totally in character, it's also kind of what it's like inside my head! 😅
