About Onset: An itty-bitty drabble to break my dry streak with something that isn’t related to Iron Man or Avengers…
Not my best piece of work but I hoped to capture some of that optimism Peter had in the very beginning of the show; the thrill of something new which would raise him above his old life and expectations.

Written for Heroes_Contest’s Drabble Challenge 36 (New).
Peter’s current life is filling with things that are new and wonderful; his dreams have evolved into reality. He is also faced with encounters and facts that fill him with fear. He has no way to understand them yet, but they are unlikely to veer him off the course he has chosen – that may have been chosen for him, but which he is happy to accept either way.
Not too long ago his life was… ordinary. It didn’t feel like that at the time, but now, in comparison, that’s the only word he can think of. He would also call his prior existence ‘meaningless’ but he tries not to get ahead of himself and nullify the things he has done in his life because some of them are important and still have meaning.
He doesn’t question what started this; he looks forward, to see what lies ahead.
The people he is meeting are extraordinary, just like him – battling the same recognition that they didn’t choose this, but they have to find a way to embrace the path before them as they all seem to be pulled in the same direction as if by an unseen force. Not all of them see it, or want to believe it, but Peter has a confidence this all happens for a reason. Each new power and chance meeting back up that theory, moving him forward on a road that will lead to something unexpected yet important.
