The summer is over. They aren't.note
Initially meant to be a bridge between Ben 10
the Original Series and Ben 10: Alien Force
, this fic took our two favorite cousins and gave them a fluffy story together. Ben and Gwen try to find their place back in normal life, all the while opening up to each other. And behind the scenes, Grandpa Max has to deal with an unusual alien menace: DN Aliens.

However, the story diverged from the 'canon' story line by a bit and this new timeline now has a sequel: "Breaking Point"
Needs more love.

Breaking Point contains examples of:
- Badass Normal: Ben, after taking off the Omnitrix. Despite having no powers or weapons, his karate skills (and previous combat experience) allow him to hold his own against the DNAliens. Then he reattaches the Omnitrix to his wrist.
- Back-to-Back Badasses: Gwen and Ben when fighting the DNAliens.
- Broken Masquerade: Michelle is freaked out at meeting a human/alien hybrid, even more so that Gwen and Ben don't seem as surprised as her. Then Gwen starts pulling magic spells out and...
- Charm Point: Gwen assures Ben that she didn't fall in love with him because he had the Omnitrix. And vice versa, Ben assures Gwen that he didn't love her just because she could cast a couple of spells.
- Clothing Damage: This nearly happens to Gwen during the fight with the DN Aliens. She's just relieved it didn't happen in front of Ben.
- Continuity Nod: Ok, here it is...
- Furry Freddy gets brought up as an embarrassing point for Gwen.
- Ben's mother decides to draw a picture of Ben and Gwen, only older. Ben apparently has a beard for some reason...
- Gwen notes how experienced Ben should be at fixing the Omnitrix, given how he's caused it to malfunction and break in the past.
- Covert Pervert: Apparently, Gwen kind of likes the fact that Ben got *ahem* excited *ahem* by touching her knee.
- Discontinuity Nod: Continuing on from above...
- The karate teacher's daughter goes to watch Ben play soccer. Sounds kind of like Julie...
- Sandra remembers the one year she tried being 'equals' with Ben by having him say her name instead of 'Mom'. Sounds suspiciously like...
- Meeting the Heatblast/Human hybrid named Alan.
- Everybody Knew Already: Apparently, Ben's parents have wised up to the him and his cousin's relationship.
- Flashback Nightmare: Nightmares where Ben thinks he lost his cousin that time he finally killed Vilgax.

- Kissing Cousins: Seems pretty self evident by now.

- No Periods, Period: Averted. Gwen gets to know what puberty feels like.
- Power-Up: After a run in with DN Aliens, Ben decides it's time to put the Omnitrix back on. You knew this was coming.
- Playing with Syringes: The results of Project Chimera: as of now, one Alan Albright.
- Secret Keeper: Michelle won't tell anyone else that the cousins have a thing for one another. Or, apparently, that both cousins have dealt with aliens before.
- Sleep Cute: Even though she was uncertain of whether the kids should continue their relationship or not, Sandra still thought they looked cute together.
- Something Else Also Rises: At the mall, Ben apparently got aroused by feeling his cousin's leg. Gwen notices his discomfort moving from a bench and the fact that he has his hands over his lap. She puts two and two together and...
- The Glomp: Ben decides to give Gwen a flying hug after she kisses the spot on his arm where the Omnitrix attaches.
- The Talk: Gwen even refers to it as the Talk, and it's also the reason why she deduces Ben has an erection.
- You Can't Fight Fate: Ben worries that, having killed Vilgax exactly the way his future self said, he may end up becoming Ben 10,000 anyways.
