This fanfic combines stories about almost all of the Marvel movies and series of the last few years.
Some of the chapters are crossovers between different stories, and they are almost all post-canon.
Chapters 2,9, and 18 follow Shang-Chi and, at some points, Doctor Strange as well.
Throughout all the different chapters and story lines, a few main characters are always there, namely Steven Grant, Marc Spector, and Jake Lockley.
They try to live a normal life but also need to get control over the Fist of Khonshu powers.
And to do so, they work together with different Avengers and other MCU characters making this a very original and fun-to-read story.
This is a combination of the storylines from all the original Avengers together with the Ant-Man, Black Panther, and Shang-Chi movies.
It is a reader-insert story, meaning that the reader is an active character in the story.
The chapters are a collection of one-shots where the reader has interactions and dates with different characters from the MCU.
The first chapter tells how Natasha Romanov helps the reader get ready for an amazing date, and the rest of the chapters all show different dates that follow.
It is an original setup, and the writer did a good job really pulling the reader into the story.

This fanfic takes place in an alternate universe and takes a bit from canon but diverges from it in most ways.

They enjoy each other’s company, and so far, there have been no hints of romance.

There are 15 chapters total, and this is part 11 in a large series about different Marvel characters.

However, he has been in love with her for many years and is unsure what to do.

In this crossover between Shang-Chi and Spider-man, we see a funny story come to life.
Katy and Shang-Chi are in a car, with Katy driving, when they hit someone.
As it turns out, this someone is Peter Parker, and they decide to put Peter in the car with them and figure out what to do.
Fortunately, he isn’t hurt badly, mostly because of his superpowers and the group decides to hang out together.

And somehow, he does get sucked into it all and ends up working with some of the new Avengers.
