The Eyes of New York is a Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse fanfic series written by sparkstarthetrashcan.
A year has passed since the events of Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse and Miles is still wearing his black and red proudly. But in the blink of an eye, his world is tipped on its head. He's kidnapped, starved and unmasked to the world. The ripple effects of this will change his reality forever.
This fanfic series provides examples of:
- Celebrity Is Overrated: Miles quickly adopts this attitude when the reveal of his identity and wellbeing is made public, already finding the Paparazzi's attempts at getting pictures and interviewing him in the hospital through the window equal parts amusing and unnerving.Ganke: It's almost like no one knows about you at all. Oh, by the way, your insta reached ten million followers this morning[.]Miles: See, this? This right here? This is exactly why I didn't want to be famous! I will never be able to walk down the street without being recognised. I can never go to the corner store to get milk again.
- Heroic Willpower: Miles was able to hold out being starved and restrained for three straight weeks without giving up. Not even the threat of being unmasked let him give up any information on his powers, knowing full-well the repercussions of letting the unworthy wield abilities like his.
- Loophole Abuse: After Miles comes home with a non-fatal bullet-wound, his parents ban him from being Spider-man until the wound has healed. This does not stop him from investigating a bank-robbing impersonator as Miles though.
- Reality Ensues: Having been starved for half a month, Ganke sneaks in a donut for Miles when he visits him in the hospital. He eats it, and then immediately throws it up, his system not ready for solid foods after the stress he's been through.Nurse: His stomach isn't used to big meals, especially stuff that's full of calories and sugar like donuts. We need to reintroduce food slowly so his body doesn't rebel, yeah?
