Re: Ned and Peter
He hugged his friend back without hesitation. In fact, after feeling like he'd been sent through a loop or two, it was nice to see someone who wasn't his parents - or Strange. "I am so glad I'm not a ghost." Because hugs would suck if he was, not to mention trying to date or anything else.
When he pulled back, he looked his friend up and down. "You look totally the same." Though he paused at the top of Peter's head while squinting. "Are you taller? You're taller, aren't you?" Of course if either of the was going to grow, it'd be Peter. Though the thought was abandoned after a moment as he hugged his friend again even if they were surrounded by people and a double hug might be weird.
