give me a plot where muse a is a spitfire of a girl with a fiery temper and a winner’s mentality, who comes from a working class family and muse b is an obnoxious, arrogant upper class boy with a world of expectations upon his shoulders. both have been in fierce competition since they first met, both determined to be the top of the class, and both having to work together on the same co-ed sports team. final year of high school/college and muse a gets given the captaincy of the team, which muse b obviously despises but has to put up with for the sake of the team.
over a break of sorts, muse a realises that muse b has strengths when it comes to the tactics/plays that they need to utilise in their games, so swallows her pride and asks for his help- they spend a lot of time together trying not to tear each others heads off (and realising the other isn’t so bad after all) before returning to school and returning to ignoring one another but for their snide comments in the classroom etc. cue them fighting and arguing during practices and everyone else on the team rolling their eyes and telling them to ‘get a room’ because lbr, the sexual tension is pretty much unbearable. the two of them are the only ones left on the pitch/field after one such practice, and they continue arguing heatedly until muse b surprises them both by kissing muse a in a way that’s too passionate to be a mistake. so ensues a period of avoidance and confusion and sexual tension that nobody knows what to do with.
when i hit the ground (in all my glory): songs for claire beauchamp. dragonfly in amber + voyager, 1948-1968.
and then, looking down into reflection, i would see my own round face and frizzled hair against a featureless blue sweep, and think instead that the puddle was the entrance to another sky. if i stepped in there, i would drop at once, and keep on falling, on and on, into blue space.

As he quitted the room, Elizabeth felt how improbable it was that they should ever see each other again on such terms of cordiality as had marked their several meetings in Derbyshire; and as she threw a retrospective glance over the whole of their acquaintance, so full of contradictions and varieties, sighed at the perverseness of those feelingswhich would now have promoted its continuance, and would formerly have rejoiced in its termination. - Pride and Prejudice, Chapter 46.
