Friday Fics Fix - Genius, Billionaire, Playboy, Philanthropist... Father

'“Alright kiddie, time for you to open your eyes… you’re really starting to freak me out.” he tapped Peters cheek lightly. “C’mon lets see those brown eyes, I know you got them.”

After another minute of face tapping and Tony hyperventilating, Peter opened his bloodshot, unfocused eyes, and gazed blearily up at his mentor.'

Let's indulge in the cuteness of Tony Stark being a parent-figure to Peter Parker this week, shall we?

Because I really wanted him to be more fatherly and less of a hypocritical douche in Spider-Man: Homecoming.

And because Tom Holland as Peter Parker is the right mix of cute, awkward, and awesome.

OK, so maybe this is some Mindless Self Indulgence ('never wanted to DANCE with nobody but you...' No? Just me and my misspent youth? Ok) but that's kind of what fanfiction is for 😉

Fanfiction, as I'm sure I've mentioned before, is a fantastical way to explore the parts of the films, books, etc., that we love, with a freedom that mainstream stuff just doesn't have.

Which means we have the time (and the will!) to look into all the emotional ooey-gooey stuff of the parent-child relationship between Tony and Peter.

(And maybe even show some growth! Heaven forbid! 😉)

'“I’m not going to leave you Peter.” He reached one of his hand over to Peters face to wipe away the tear. His eyes closed again.

“You… you’…safe man…” he trailed off, asleep at last.

Tony sighed. Is this what kids do? Puke all over your floor, then make your heart melt in your chest? Gross.'

Not that there's no drama in this fic - there definitely is.

Peter gets badly hurt, and if you're not in the mood for blood and danger and head injuries, maybe don't read it.

It also hits the feels. Hard.

(Fangirling notes: the feels are extreme fandom-related emotions that get you right in the ever-loving heart!)

Like, so many poor cupcake Peter related feels in this fic!

This week's fic is:

  1. Aw this seems really cute! I wish Tony was more of a father figure to Peter after watching Homecoming as well. I’m glad this fic finally brought it to life.

    1. It is both cute and angsty and therefore anything you'd want in a Tony Stark is Peter's father fic ;) <3

  2. I might be the oddball here but I liked Tony Stark's behavior towards Peter. Tony does what he can and it seems more realistic that way.

    1. I just feel like he acts really irresponsibly (enlisting Peter on his side during Civil War, then giving him top notch tech and v. little supervision,) doesn't communicate well (what teenager would take 'I'll handle it' as an answer Tony, really?!) and is kinda hypocritical (i.e. holds Peter to a much higher standard than he holds himself.)

      Still, that's my opinion! I can see where you're coming from too :)

  3. aww I NEED to watch Spider-Man: Homecoming!!! I did like their interactions in...

    wait having a Dory moment here. Let me go google what was the last movie I watched....

    1. Ha, did I ever mention how much I love your comments? ;) <3

  4. ok I'm back I'm pretty sure it was Avengers: Infinity War. AS sure as I'm ever going to be XD
    Ok back to the point.. I loved how he treated him LOVED IT!

    1. Tom Holland's scene in that though... at the end... *heart breaks with feels*


Comments? I love comments! Talk to me nerdlets!
