Starkquill Fic: Postcards From Space

616 fic but no incursions, Spider-Man is Peter and not Doc Ock. Based off a prompt from valerishka-s


Peter finds them first. He doesn’t mean to snoop, but MJ is at work and it’s not like he has anything else to do. Besides, it’s cool new technology Tony brought back from his space adventures. How could he not sneak a peek? 

The device looks nothing like the Starkphone Tony has given him, but Peter gets the impression that it’s meant to be similar. Despite its alien appearance, it’s familiar enough that he’s able to figure it out pretty quickly, and soon he’s exploring the contents. 

There isn’t much. Mostly pictures. They are all of incredible vistas out in space, and almost all of them have a caption attached. The pictures are so beautiful and, well, unearthly, that Peter is certain they must have been created in Photoshop. Either Tony used a picture he took while he was out in space with the Guardians of the Galaxy and then added to it, or else he just made the whole thing up. Whichever it is, the pictures are pretty amazing. 

The captions, though, are so cheesy that Peter can’t help wondering what Tony is thinking. He can get behind the idea of space postcards, some new money-making venture for Stark Resilient, maybe. But if that’s the case, Tony really needs to hire some new writers. 

Binary star system. Forever locked in orbit around each other. Like us.

Icy ringed planet, moon on the rise. Looks lonely. Makes me miss you.

Cloud with new stars forming. I like to imagine what you would say if you could see this.

Stopped a Badoon attack on a Spartoi colony today. You know how as a kid you think it would be fun for people to treat you like royalty? Trust me, it’s not.
