Avenge //Avengers AU//
"Pete, honey. Don't fight this. I love you."
.. . . ....
Peter wasn't expecting to be fully admitted as an Avenger by his sixteenth birthday. He'd imagined the moment as breathtaking and glorious, but its nothing of the sort.
Instead of moving into Stark Tower with the glory of being an official Avenger, he moves in with the pain of being truly orphaned.
After Aunt May's sickness leads to her death, it's Tony who takes Peter into his care. Otherwise, the kid would have been shipped off across the country to a distant unknown relative in Fresno, California.
Under the alias as Peter Parker, Stark Industries Intern, and Official Avenger Photographer, Peter begins to unravel a new life, one his Aunt May would love to have seen him in. Even if it means dealing with the dramatic life of an Avenger.
Still, he makes friends and makes a family, and that's most important in these dark times.
Because while Peter Parker may be coming to terms with his Aunt May's death, Tony Stark, Bruce Banner, and Stephen Strange are all coming to terms with something more sinister at play.
The Avengers and New York need Spider-Man.
And Peter Parker needs his family.
