    Summary

    It’s the first time in a while that he doesn’t know what comes next. He’s dove into the water hundreds of times. Screamed as his flesh was torn apart, heard Master of Puppets in the distance and held back tears. Felt Max’s cold, small hand in his as she laid in the hospital bed. There are things that always happen, no matter how hard he tries: El doesn’t arrive in time. Eddie dies. Max is put in a coma.

    Steve fails. They lose.

    “Steve, how many loops have you been through?”

    His head is nodding, and his eyes are watery, and Eddie has approached him like a spooked animal.

    “I lost count.”

    AKA: The one where Steve Harrington is stuck in a time loop, and Eddie Munson is really fucking hard to save, or: fuck Volume 2, these bitches are in love.

    Summary

    Prompt: "Peter on tik-tok pretending like he figured out a way to replicate what looks like Spider-Man web shooters, for the views. And becoming a ‘cosplayer’ of his own superhero, pairing up with other Deadpool cosplayers for the meme, until the real Deadpool, who is apparently a fan of his and follows all of his social media, begs to be in one of his videos." 

     

    The first thing to know about the whole debacle was that, at some point, gig based jobs had quietly trickled away from telephone pole fliers and library bulletin boards, and had instead put down roots in apps and social media.

    This leads to the second thing that was important to know: as always, Peter Parker needed money.

    Which brings the story to the third (and possibly most important) thing to know was that in addition to shepherding in an age of apps and social media platforms, kids these days had also figured out ways to make money from just existing on these platforms.

    A lightbulb went off in Peter’s head. 

    He yanked out his phone and typed in ‘how tio makke mone yfrom tick tock.’

    Summary

    The Weeping Angels, Eggsy reads on the stolen Torchwood intel. Aliens that pose as statues, and kill their victims by sending them back in time and feeding off their years not lived in the present. The politest psychopaths in the universe, a note reads, scrawled in what looks like a doctor’s chicken scratch on the edge of the page by someone who clearly had a perverse sense of humour. A one way trip, the report concludes; you get transported by the angels, and it’s the slow road back to the present for you.

    Eggsy lays his head back on the wall, takes stock of his situation. He’s lost 30 years - three years more than his entire lifespan up ’til now - in the blink of an eye, and now he’s stuck here, in 1988. Three years before he’s even born. Arthur, the prick, is sure to be heading up the Kingsmen, and Merlin, if he’s even there would be…20, maybe. Fuck, so fucking young.

    Shite, even Harry’d only be…

    Alive, Eggsy thinks, and finds himself sitting down hard from where his knees can’t hold him. This is 1988, and Harry’s 23, and alive.

    Suddenly, being stuck in 1988 doesn’t seem so bad.

    Or, the one where love means changing the future. Harry/Eggsy, Time Travel Fix-It.
