Peter knew he was scared, he also knew that keeping secrets from those he cared about most had never seemed to work in his favor. Keeping the fact that he was a masked superhero from his Aunt was hard enough… hiding his hopes of ever being able to transition was a whole new task. Not to mention May didn’t even have the first idea about Peter’s “gender situation”, as one of his friends had put it. (He knew they meant well, but it still put a weird taste in his mouth.) He had long since mentally shed his existence as Petra, but there was still outward lingerings of her life, Aunt May included. He knew it was time to bring her up to speed…. on at least one of his secret identities.
Peter: Okay, this is gonna be fine.
Aunt May is the best person on the planet and you know she loves you.
-You gotta do it. This is who you are.
Okay- Hey Aunt May! Can I talk to you?
Aunt May (from the hallway): Sure thing sweetie, I’ll be there in a second!
