Radical Face
I've got no need for open roads
'Cause all I own fits on my back
I see the world from rusted trains
And always know I won't be back

'Cause all my life is wrapped up in today
No past or future here
If I find my name's no good
I just fall out of line
But I miss you

But there's no comin' home
There's no comin' home
With a name like mine
I still think of you
But everyone knows
Yeah everyone knows
If you care, let it go

I've seen more places than I can name
And over time they all start to look the same
But it ain't that truth we chase
No, it's the promise of a better place

But all this time, I been chasin' down a lie
And I know it for what it is
But it beats the alternatives
So I'll take the lie
I still miss you

There's no goin' home
There's no goin' home
With a name like mine
I still dream of you
But everyone knows
Yeah everyone knows
If you can, let it go
The Phone Book
It ends with a kiss
It ends with a tear
It ends with the lights out
Bathed in our fears
Forget Her
Jeff Buckley
Don't fool yourself,
She was heartache from the moment that you met her.
My heart is frozen still
As I try to find the will to forget her, somehow.
She's somewhere out there now.
Love Ain't Enough
The Barr Brothers
My country is a cross
And my city is a vice
In so perilous a place
Such a blood-begotten price
Well, just forget I ever said
This true love ain't enough
There's a killer in my bed
And enough is not enough
Devil's Backbone
The Civil Wars
Don't care if he's guilty, don't care if he's not
He's good and he's bad and he's all that I've got
Oh Lord, Oh Lord, I'm begging you please
Don't take that sinner from me
Oh don't take that sinner from me
No One's Gonna Love You
Band of Horses
But someone
They could have warned you
When things start splitting at the seams and now
The whole thing's tumbling down
Things start splitting at the seams and now
If things start splitting at the seams and now
It's tumbling down
The Enemy
Andrew Belle
Don't try to follow me
I would hold you down if I could
Make you the enemy
I would let you down
Steam Powered Giraffe
You didn't have to look my way
Your eyes still haunt me to this day
But you did. Yes, you did

You didn't have to say my name
Ignite my circuits and start a flame
But you did
Every Atom
Lanterns on the Lake
I took your cigarettes to our secret place
I knocked on every door in your estate
I've seen the cavalry march for peace
But I haven't caught a glimpse of you in weeks
If I have to split every atom,
Just to find a trace of you
That's what I'll do
Earth and Venus
Andy Davis
Wherever you are you're never close enough
Don't be afraid of love
Keep waiting

And I can't get in if you never open up
Don't be afraid of love
Keep waiting
Declan J Donovan
So now I'm on my way
Yes, I'm on my way
To Vienna
Where I met ya
Yes, I'm on my way
Yes, I'm on my way
To Vienna
I'll chase you 'til the end of the world, of the world
You're the perfect stranger in my life
But it hurts, yes, it hurts
So I just gotta have you in my life
Ghost Story
The moon's a fingernail and slowly sinking
Another day begins and now I'm thinking
That this indifference was my invention
When everything I did sought your attention

You were my compass star, you were my measure
You were a pirate's map, a buried treasure
If this was all correct, the last thing I'd expect
The prosecution rests, it's time that I confessed
I must have loved you
After All
The Franklin Electric
I'm carrying the weight upon my back
And I'll no longer follow in those steps
I've been hit, I've been sworn
I've been chasing something more
I've grown kinda worried about this

I guess I'm moving forward
Down the coast of California
Where the folks like the waters not that cold
I guess there's nothing for us
Since this world keeps moving forward
And everyone's a little more like you
Harry Styles
You're so golden
I don't wanna be alone
You're so golden
You're so golden
I'm out of my head
And I know that you're scared
Because hearts get broken
LA On Fire
Is it enough to say
It didn't go our way?
No wonder why
LA on fire

Los Angeles is burning to the ground
And I'm on way to you

Love Ain't Enough
The Barr Brothers
My country is a cross
And my city is a vice
In so perilous a place
Such a blood-begotten price
Well, just forget I ever said
This true love ain't enough
There's a killer in my bed
And enough is not enough
Devil's Backbone
The Civil Wars
Don't care if he's guilty, don't care if he's not
He's good and he's bad and he's all that I've got
Oh Lord, Oh Lord, I'm begging you please
Don't take that sinner from me
Oh don't take that sinner from me

If I could take back all my sweat, my tears, my sex, my joy I would
My time, my love, my effort, passion, dedication
In case of mistaken identity I gave these things to you
If I sound angry, bitter, sad, infatuated, it's the truth
Denial, anger, bargaining, depression, just a few
Stages of acceptance that it's really over
It's just so complicated and I'm stupid for believing in you

You make me feel like my father never loved me
You make me feel like the act of love is empty
Am I so unlovable?
Is my skin untouchable?
Do I remind you of a part of you that you don't like?

Peter is a kid who always tries to do the right thing, but doesn't always make the right decisions. From the moment he was bit by the radioactive spider that gave him his superpowers when he was 14, he knew that he had to use his powers for good: If you had powers like that, and something bad happened to someone and you didn't do anything about it, well, then it was your fault. From the guidance that he received from his Aunt May, he's always done his best to make sure that if there was something he could do, whether it be stopping a bus with his bare hands or volunteering at the homeless shelter his aunt worked at, he made sure to do it. With recent events, he's come to question how much responsibility he owes to the world though, a question he's currently struggling with.

Peter's also very intelligent. He's (presumably) received scholarships to attend Midtown School of Science and Technology, a school that's a fast-track to colleges such as MIT. He invented his own web-fluid, and the webshooter to shoot it with when he was young, and would occasionally find tech, like computers, that were thrown out so he could fix them up. He had high grades, and was in marching band, robotics lab, and the academic decathlon team. As his dedication to Spider-Man grew, he dropped out of marching band and robotics lab, and debated dropping out of high school all-together; he was destined for more than just high school. Peter's a nerd, and tends to make a lot of pop-culture references.

Peter is impetuous, and in the past has tended to make snap decisions without thinking them all-the-way through, whether it was trusting Beck, a man he'd only just met, with Stark satellites, or with having Stephen Strange break the universe because he didn't think about making a phone call first. He tries to bite off more than he can chew, determined to prove himself to the people he admires even if the things he tries are beyond his capabilities. His decisions for the last several months have, more or less, been bad ones, and has resulted in Peter losing everything that he'd ever known; he's likely to think things through a little more now.

Peter's also very accustomed to loss. He lost both his parents in a plane accident when he was very young, and then went to live with his Aunt May and Uncle Ben. Uncle Ben was murdered a little before Peter became Spider-Man. He grew attached to Tony Stark, and Tony died fighting Thanos, and his Aunt May was killed by another Spider-Man's villain. And then everyone on the planet forgot who Peter Parker was. This causes Peter to both cherish the people he loves -- he holds his friends and family in much closer confidences than other Peter Parkers might -- and also causes him to do whatever it takes to keep them safe, even if it means letting them go. Even if MJ and Ned don't remember him, he can still try to keep them safe from afar.

Despite all this, Peter's an eternal optimist, and generally tries to find the bright-side of a situation. He's friendly and kind, makes jokes when he's nervous.

Canon History
Peter's life was never what one might call easy. He was born to Mary and Richard Parker, a pair of biologists, and, up until the age of four, he was happy with them. Unfortunately, that was the year when the first tragedy of Peter's life struck: his parents were killed in a plane crash, and he was sent to live with his Aunt May and Uncle Ben in Queens.

Life with his aunt and uncle was, for the most part, a happy one. They didn't have a lot of money, but they got by fine, and the house was always filled with love and laughter. May and Ben, both of whom worked at a homeless shelter, instilled in Peter a strong sense of morals and the difference between right and wrong.

Adjusting to life with superpowers was weird after Peter had been bitten by a radioactive spider when he was 14, but also very cool. He'd admired the Avengers, and was excited that he could be like them. Except, when he had the chance to stop a criminal and didn't take it, being annoyed at the man who was being stolen from, the criminal went on to kill his Uncle Ben. It was a lesson that Peter had never forgotten. When you had the power to stop things like that happening and didn't, well, it was sort of your fault. Wasn't it?

Peter fought crime and did his best to help the citizens of New York for a year, when he was paid a visit by his hero, Tony Stark, who had figured out he was Spider-Man. Tony wanted him to come to Germany with him to help him put a stop the Captain America. He gave Peter a new suit, the Iron Spider, and Peter was more than happy to do what he could to help.

While he expected to work closely with Tony and the Avengers after their trip to Germany, Peter found himself on his own again. Only now, he wasn't content to just help the citizens of New York. He wanted to be able to do more. He got his chance when The Vulture made his appearance, selling weapons made from alien tech that had been harvested during the Battle of New York. His fight with the Vulture was complicated when he realized that The Vulture was actually the father of Peter's crush -- and date to homecoming -- Liz Allan. He eventually defeated The Vulture, though not before The Vulture learned Spider-Man's secret identity and attempted to steal a bunch of Stark Tech. Stark offered Peter a spot in the Avengers for his help, but Peter turned it down.

During all of this, Peter's best friend, Ned Leeds, discovered his secret identity, and afterward so did May.

It wasn't long after that when New York was invaded, for the second time, by aliens. Thanos' aliens, to be exact. Peter hitched a ride to space with Tony Stark, where he met up with Stephen Strange and later Peter Quill and the Guardians of the Galaxy. They fought Thanos for the time stone and lost, and Peter was blipped.

Five years later, Peter came back, and he and the rest of the Avengers were able to defeat Thanos, thanks to Tony Stark's ultimate sacrifice.

The next year, Peter began to realize that he'd developed feelings for his friend, MJ, and decided he'd let his feelings be known on their school trip to Europe. Unfortunately, his plans were interrupted by Mysterio -- a man who he trusted as a hero, and later discovered was a villain. On the trip, MJ discovered that Peter was Spider-Man, and Peter was able to tell her how he felt about her.

That lasted for all of three weeks. Mysterio, in his death, had leaked Spider-Man's secret identity to J. Jonah Jameson, and soon the whole world knew who he was. Some people supported him, others thought he'd murdered the hero Mysterio and was a villain, but his life was changed. Not just his, but MJ and Ned's lives too. They were rejected from every university they applied to thanks to their association with him. And so Peter did the only logical thing.

He asked Stephen Strange to change the very fabric of reality so everyone would forget who Spider-Man's secret identity was.

This went well for all of thirty seconds, when the spell went wrong, and other Spider-Men and Spider-Men villains began appearing in Peter's world. May was killed by the Green Goblin, and while Peter was able to reverse the damage he did with the help of Stephen Strange, the cost was that everyone int he world forgot who Peter Parker was. Including MJ and Ned.

And that was how Peter found his way to Vallo.
In Game History (2022)
April 2022 Peter arrived in Vallo on April 2, 2022, and had a couple of days to life in a new world in his Morningside Apartment. He ran into Stephen Strange on April 4th, and was surprised that he knew who he was. They had pancakes and Peter was offered a home in the Sanctum Sanctorm. He also posted to the Network for the first time. Likewise, he also had a Conversation with Wanda about how it sucks to be them.

Stephen Strange and Wanda got engaged in a snowstorm on the 6th, and Peter accepted his invitation to their wedding. He also ran into Catra, who looked exactly like MJ, if MJ was a cat girl.

May 2022 In May of 2022, Michelle Jones showed up to Vallo, and Peter ran into her unexpectedly at Taurbucks. Unfortunately, unlike the other Marvel characters, she had no idea who he was.

Carol and Stephen swapped bodies which was SUPER WEIRD, OKAY? His Spider Sense went wonky, and suddenly started going off whenever people were hungry. He invited MJ to Stephen and Wanda's wedding at Stephen's urging.

June 2022 Spider-Man ran into Hawkeye while out fighting crime, and she kindly let him know that the previous Peter Parker let the spider out of the bag, so to speak, but they bonded over tacos. On June 4th, Stephen Strange and Wanda Maximoff were married. He also joined Billy's D&D group.

He also won Fight Club this month.

July 2022 Peter joined Tony at Stark Industries and was offered a job there.

Peter, unfornately, was knocked out in round one of Fight Club this month, but became friends with the victor: Fabian Seacaster. He signed up for some first aid (or, at least, expressed some interest) and met Kamala Khan.

August 2022 August was the month for birthdays. His own 18th birthday was on August 10th, and he took full advantage of the Vallo Food Festival to celebrate it. August 14th saw Kamala's 17th birthday party at a bowling lane!

At the beginning of the month, Peter and Kamala ran into one another for the first time, in the most literal of senses.

Stephen Strange disappeared at the beginning of the month, and the Sanctum disappeared with him. Functionally homeless, Wanda decided to move to the cabin he'd made her and Peter moved with her.

Mid-month, when people's dreams and nightmares started coming alive, Peter had to leave work early on account of needing to fight his lunch with Tommy.

At some point during the month, Peter discovered Spider-Man comics and some pretty horrifying outcomes to his Spider-Man powers, which may or may not have gotten leaked out onto the internet at large. He was not okay.

September 2022 September started off with a bang when Carole and Emmeline announced their engagement, and Wanda put into place weekly dinners with her family.

About mid-month, Darkness fell and monsters attacked, and Peter and Kamala had their first superhero team up getting people safely from point A to point B. She even helped protect him when some monsters got the drop on him.

October 2022 In October, Peter and Dustin worked on a drone together. Vision arrived and moved into the cabin with Peter and Wanda. This was also the day that Michelle Jones-Watson was sent back home.

He didn't have much time to dwell on that though, because Peter's first time slip happened, kicking off with an old Kate Bishop.

November 2022 Steve Rogers arrived right at the top of November, and later, he got invited to Avengers Thanksgiving.

That wasn't all! Wanda got turned into a houseplant and good times were had by all (they were not, in fact, good times).

December 2022 Peter got to be a mall elf for Christmas, and told Kamala about his Aunt May dying. She did her best to help him get over his grief, and one of those methods was to take him to The Princesss Prom.

In Game History (2023)

January 2023 The new year did not start off great: Peter was sent to Hell for some days, where he had to relive moments that gave him guilt. He had to watch his Aunt die over and over again, until Kamala was able to break through and helped him through his guilt.

February 2023 Bobbi Morse arrived in Vallo in February, and while in the course of introducing himself, Peter ended up getting made fun of entirely unfairly for being a babyface. Somehow, this led to Peter retiring the Peter Tingle in favour of a new term: Spider-Sense.

This was also when Wanda convinced Peter to finish his GED. A month or so later, Peter did, in fact, get his GED and began to think of starting college in the fall.

March 2023 Kate's birthday was in March, and Peter attended the paintball and all the rest, including his second superhero team-up with Kamala. The Avengers Compound also showed up this month.

In March, and going into April, some people had to go into the future to help save the world. Though Peter and Kamala never learned of it, in that future, Peter and Kamala were married with a daughter.

April 2023 It was Peter's Valloversary! And so the geese attacked.

It was Kamala's first Eid away from home, and so Peter got her a necklace so that she wouldn't feel so homesick.

May 2023 In May, Peter was replaced by an older version of him from his homeworld, with no memories of Vallo, and afterward, Tex brought back Peter's fears of the Man-Spider.

Kamala invited him to prom, confirming that it was, actually, a date, and Peter made plans with Wanda to buy a suit.

Relationship History
Click on Names for Details
Liz Toomes
Peter Parker had had a crush on Liz Toomes for years before he finally got the courage to actually talk to her in his sophomore year of high school. They got along pretty well on their academic decathlon trip to Washington (before Peter had to bail to do Spider-Man stuff, and then later saved her before she plummeted to her death), and so Peter took a chance and asked her to the homecoming dance. To his surprise, she said yes!

He was pretty excited to take her, except when he went to go pick her up, she realized her dad was The Vulture -- the criminal who'd been selling weapons made from alien tech -- and he had to bail on her at the dance. Understandably, she wanted nothing to do with him after he ditched her at the dance, especially given that that was the night her father was arrested.

Michelle "MJ" Jones-Watson (Before Vallo)
It was in Peter's junior year of high school that he realized he had a crush on MJ, who had become his friend after their decathlon trip. Luckily, Peter had a plan: On their class trip to Europe, he was going to get her a glass blown necklace of a Black Delilah (like the murders), and he was going to give it to her at the top of the Eiffel Tower, and then they would kiss and would fall in love.

Like many of Peter's plans, that was not how things panned out at all. Instead, there was a supervillain on the loose in Europe that Peter had to stop, MJ figured out that he was Spider-Man, the necklace got broken... But he did get the kiss! On London Bridge, after he'd nearly been killed.

For three weeks they had a chance to be happy in New York, before Peter's secret identity as Spider-Man got outted to the whole world. He instantly became the most famous person on Earth, and MJ was deprived of any peace she might have had. Knowing him got her rejected from every college she applied to, and so Peter had Stephen Strange cast a spell so everyone would forget he was Spider-Man.

Things did not go as planned, and even though MJ and his best friend Ned helped him catch and save the multi-dimensional villains that came to their world, in the end, magic made MJ forget that Peter Parker ever existed. Realizing that she was safer without knowing who he was, Peter decided to leave her alone so that she could go to MIT.

Michelle "MJ" Jones-Watson (Vallo)
Lol j/k. Then MJ showed up in Vallo! After running into someone who looked like the Catgirl version of MJ, Peter was pretty sure the barista at Taurbucks wasn't MJ, until he realized that she absolutely was. She had no idea who he was, but that didn't stop him from embarrassing himself.

He's since become a regular at Taurbucks, chatting with her whenever he gets the chance. He hasn't told her he's Spider-Man, yet, but he did invite her to Stephen and Wanda's wedding.

MJ was sent home at the beginning of October.

Kamala Khan
Peter and Kamala spoke for the first time on the Netwrok at the end of July of 2022, and literally ran into one another a few days later August. But they'd see a lot of one another that month: Peter's 18th birthday, celebrated with food was on August 10th, and Kamala's 17th birthday party was four days later at a bowling lane. Later that month, she had to comfort him and tell him that he wasn't turning into a Man-Spider.

They joked about wearing each other's superhero merch and doing fan production teamups. They, in fact, had their first superhero team-up a month later, when darkness fell. Kamala even helped save Peter from some monsters that got the drop on him.

When MJ was sent home at the beginning of October, Kamala was the first to reach out.

Peter and Kamala went to the Avengers Thanksgiving together. It was near Christmas when Peter disclosed to Kamala that his aunt had died. She did her best to discover the best way to help him through it. One of her methods was to take him to the Princess Prom.

The new year did not start off great: Peter was sent to Hell for some days, where he had to relive moments that gave him guilt. He had to watch his Aunt die over and over again, until Kamala was able to break trhough and helped him through his guilt. It was around here when Peter's feelings toward Kamala started to shift.

Oh Valentine's Day, Kate got to tease Peter a little about how much time he was spending with Kamala.

Peter and Kamala had their second superhero team-up at Kate's birthday. In March, and going into April, some people had to go into the future to help save the world. Though Peter and Kamala never learned of it, in that future, Peter and Kamala were married with a daughter.

It was Kamala's first Eid away from home, and so Peter got her a necklace so that she wouldn't feel so homesick. Kamala wasn't sure how to take it, but to be fair, neither did Peter.

In May, 2023, Kamala invited him to prom, confirming that it was, actually, a date, and Peter made plans with Wanda to buy a suit.

[No Subject]

Teela has always been important to Adam. She's his best friend, has been since they were kids. She trained him and pushed him to be the best that he could be. Their relationship took a hit when Teela discovered that Adam had been keeping the fact that he was He-Man from her (and, apparently, from only her), and then died, but they've been working on coming to a better place, even confessing the feelings they've had for one another.

Even when she disappeared for eight months, Adam never gave up hope that he'd find her again. Where she goes, he goes.

ANNIVERSARY: December 12th, 2021

Adam was born as a twin, only to have his twin sister stolen through a portal to another dimension just weeks after their birth. He spent his whole life wondering what had become of his twin sister that his parents refused to talk about.

Even before Adam knew that Adora was that twin sister, they got along like two peas in a pod. It was Catra who finally figured it out.

Catra married Adam's twin sister shortly after Adam's arrival in Vallo, before he realized that Adora was his sister. In fact, it was Catra who noticed in the first place.

Adam loves his sister-in-law, even if she doesn't always appreciate his puns.

Matthew is arguably one of Adam's closest friends in Vallo outside of his family. Who doesn't need a buddy who can appreciate good snacks and better puns?
Adam first met Orym when they were paired together in doubles night at Fight Club, and the two of them wiped the floor with the rest of the competition. Adam began sparring with him afterwards, and takes Orym's Zeph'aeratam classes on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
Kate Bishop TEAM MATE
Kate Bishop is on Adam's defense team. More than that, Kate's often one of the ones encouraging Adam to go out and explore new horizons: she convinced him to do speed dating, and they often enjoy doing other team-based things, such as capture the flag and snowball fights, outside of work.
Carol Danvers TEAM MATE
Carol is on Adam's Defense Team, and is in the same superpowered baseball league.
