it's always better when we're together

( because love takes many forms. )

1. a person attached to another by feelings of affection or personal regard.
2. a person who gives assistance.
3. a person who is on good terms with another; a person who is not hostile.
4. a member of the same nation, party, etc.

Old Friends

1. Just chillin’. You just enjoy each other’s company, and you’re spending time somewhere that the only thing that matters is both of you, doing your thing.
2. A friend in need is a friend indeed. Hey man, my car broke down. Also, I might have to come stay with you a while because my significant other kicked me out... One of you is in a pickle! Time to test how far this friendship can go.
3. Bros b4 hos, man. Chicks b4 dicks. I’m really happy for your success in finding someone who might be interested in seeing you naked, but you need to remember that your friends need time too. Jealousy and friendly concern regarding relationships go here.
4. We’re gonna paint the town. Inflicting your friendship upon society. Maybe you’re going out for a party, maybe you’re just driving around. DO something together! Try something new!
5. I get by with a little help from my friends. You or your friend is in need of some emotional support during a difficult time. Whether it’s a shit situation or just whining, a friend is obligated to deal and give advice. Or are they?
6. Get in, loser, we’re going shopping. Whirlwind adventure time! Kidnap your a friend from their mundane schedule and play hookey! Run away together!
7. I love you, man. Showing your appreciation and affection for your friend, be it in gifts, gestures, or just an outright thank you.
8. Gurl, hold my poodle. A fight has broken out, and either one or both of you are involved. Do you/the friend break up the fight or jump right in to defend? Or maybe you’re in a situation neither of you could avoid - perhaps it’s war instead. What sort of team are you?
9. Long-lost. You’ve been driven apart by distance or circumstances, but you finally have the chance to see one another again. What’s the reunion like?
10. Misery loves company. Commiserating together. Maybe you’re stuck at a really boring afair, maybe you’re complaining about men/women/work. You’re allowed to be as nasty as you want in front of your best friends!
11. E tu, Brute? Betrayal. Whether intentional or not, one of you has let the other down. They’re not the person you thought they were.
12. I only tell you this because I care. Advice, possibly unsolicited. Your friend has been doing something you don’t like and you’re going to let them know. Yes, that dress does make you look fat.
13. Thinking of you. So I saw this hat on my way through the mall and thought of you! I found this cool/funny video and thought I’d pass it on! I felt like baking cookies and thought you might appreciate some.
14. Why are we friends, again? Argument! Know someone long enough and you’re bound to get in a few! Is someone just in a terrible mood? Or is there an actual issue? Fight it out, big or small! Small to big?
15. Too good of friends. Make-up prompt. You two got into it, and now it’s someone’s turn to step up and be the bigger person to preserve the friendship. How do you show you’re sorry? Is forgiveness possible?
16. Obligatory wildcard. Pick your own!

New Friends
Icebreakers for new interactions!

Reasons (Optional):

1. Convenience. You work together and carpool. You’re neighbors. You have the same classes. It’s just easier to get along than ignore each other.
2. Through an Acquaintance. They’re a friend of a friend, so naturally, you’ve had to deal with them every so often. But maybe you want to see what they’re like when it’s just the two of you?
3. Hardship. They came to help you out when you needed it, despite being a stranger. Comrades in arms.
4. Intrigue. You seem pretty cool. Want to hang out sometime?


1. Party. So you should be friends with me, because I can drink a yard of beer and I’ve got the moves like Jagger.
2. Venue. Going to the movies, having lunch together, checking out the fair that came through town. It’s like a date, except getting to know them doesn’t come tied with a relationship.
3. Favor. Hey, I’m going out for a weekend. Would you mind feeding my cat? Can I borrow a little bit of money and pay you back later?
4. TMI. Um. No, I didn’t know you had a foot fetish! And I’m really not sure how I feel about it. I really don’t care how many cats you have. I’m not at liberty to discuss how much money I have.
5. Advice. Hey, do you mind giving a second opinion? Also, you never knew this about me, but I’m actually a ninja as a night job and I can give you some help with that self-defense issue you’ve been having?
6. Philosophy. Friendship’s first deep, serious conversation. What do you think of this current issue? What’s your religious standing?
7. Call me, text me. Hey, what’s up? NM here, just bored at work. Want to play Words with Friends? Casual conversations at a distance.
8. Forced association. Well, I’d better get going... nevermind, it looks like it’s flooding outside. Um. Usually the drive is ten minutes, but usually traffic isn’t a fifty-car pile-up... know any showtunes?
9. Upgrading. Roll from the Old Friends category and see if this friend is able to take the leap!
10. Wildcard Yep.

[Okay so...Peter doesn't have a lot of friends. Associates - okay, not even associates. He's kind of a lone spider, and not by choice! Maybe a little by choice. Look at him, he's compromising a lot today. The point still stands, though - people don't want to associate with the vigilante menace. He's got Daredevil, sure, but that's an unspoken agreement - only in the most dire of circumstances do they ever call each other. Then there's Deadpool which - Peter doesn't even want to know what he did to earn that kind of a self-proclaimed 'friend'. He's harmless enough, at least, in his dealings with Peter.

His point though - yes, he does have one buried in there somewhere - is that he doesn't have a lot of places to go. Daredevil would be his first option in a time like this, but Peter knows the guy was beaten six ways to Sunday just two days ago and besides, Peter's all the way in fucking Midtown right now. The Devil does not leave Hell's Kitchen, as a general rule.

It says something that Peter doesn't think he can make it that far.

Normally, he'd just collapse on a building somewhere and let his body knit itself back together. Thing is, though, his arm is twisted completely out of it's joint, broken in multiple places if the searing pain is anything to gauge by. That alone still wouldn't be enough for Peter to seek out help but - well, he can't shove it back into place. His suit is caught up in it, making it impossible for him to reset it alone.

At this point, swinging is painful enough. Peter couldn't even make it to a hospital right now if he tried.

So, instead, he's at the only place he could think to land - Stark Tower. Yeah, this is going to go great.]

[ Steve is only at Stark Tower because he promised Pepper that he'd try to fix things with Tony face to face. Which is probably akin to one of Hercules' labors at thi point, considering the team is in shambles; one half more or less on the run and the other half part of a government approved unit. He's honestly not sure which side is worse off (although he's got two dads on his side who can't talk to their kids, so that's probably the worst).

But, anyway. Operation Duct Tape is mostly on track. Or it would be if Tony was actually in his building instead of being called away to deal with some emergency paper signing for one of his new projects.

Which means Steve is rambling around the place, keeping to the area where his host likes to throw parties and occasionally himself in Iron Man armor, when the city's other native hero shows up. Other than the Kitchen's resident devil. Nevermind about that, though, because he can tell something's off about Peter's swinging abilities. They've never met in person, other than a quip here and there when crossing professional paths, but Steve's paid enough attention in the few years he's been out of the ice to recognize physical discomfort when he sees it.

Thankful for super soldier speed, he's already lunging for the nearest first aid kit when the kid touches down on the landing outside, and joins him barely a minute or two later - just enough time for said webhead to get his bearings. ]

Afternoon. [ Yes, Peter, that is Captain America hovering a foot or two away, kit braced against one hip and sporting a faintly worried expression. ] Nice day for a ... swing.

[Peter doesn't like to think about the battle at the airport. The more he thinks about it, the more he doesn't want to think about it. Did he even know what he was fighting for? Not really. One threat from Tony that he might spill the beans to Aunt May was enough to send Peter into a panic long enough for Stark to get what he wanted. Not that Peter didn't believe Tony had the best of intentions at heart but...well, Peter's personal beliefs were somewhere in the grey area in the middle.

It says something that Peter wasn't conscripted into signing the Accords. Some part of the billionaire must know it isn't right, much as he might not want to admit it. Needless to say, Peter isn't an Avenger and contact has been pretty much nonexistent. Peter doesn't take it personally - the Devil thinks he's lucky to escape with what little injuries he did.

Peter lands with much less aplomb than usual, stumbling forward a little before swaying into place. Yeah, his arm is pretty gross. Lucky he heals, or he'd have passed out by now from the bloodloss. He's so distracted that he doesn't really notice the heartbeat and breathing pattern in front of him don't belong to who he was expecting until Steve speaks.

His good arm whips out, ready to web Steve should he be hostile, but it's about then that Peter's vision focuses and - that's Captain America. What? Is he already hallucinating?]

...would be, 'cept for the killer octopus on the loose. But the clouds are pretty.
