Apple Stems [Peter Parker]
Idea/Request Credit: @dusktillholland // Soulmate AU
Everyone’s heard the whole joke about twisting the Apple stem and whatever letter you get is the first letter of the person you’re meant to be with right? But what if that was actually a reality?
Everyone had some kind of tie to their soul mate, you always assumed that yours was the apple stem.
Each apple you twist you get a letter and somehow those letters go together to make your soul mate’s name.
Sounds crazy, but in a world where there were things as crazy as giant green dudes and People flinging around from spider webs it was a little easier to believe.
Ever since you were a kid you’d consistently got the name ‘Peter.P’, That was all you knew
While everyone around you was finding their soul mates easy as pie and living their ‘happy ever after’ You were stuck searching.
- Honestly, on your walk home from school the last thing you expected to see was the hero of queens, Spider Man… Unmasked.
- You also didn’t expect to make the poor boy almost jump out of his skin by screaming and dropping your food face down on the concrete.
- “Oh god, no, no don’t scream shh”
- “Y-you’re him”
- It was hard to tell who was more panicked,
youor him. Oh god, Peters mind was full of doubt and fear- and how beautiful you were -but what was he going to do?
- The both of you quickly manage to regain yourselves and you quickly promise the stranger that you won’t tell anyone his secret.
- “Hey, what’s your name?”
- “Y/N, Yours?”
- “Peter, Parker”
- You didn’t think anything of it at first, i mean there’s probably a million Peter.P’s out there.
- “If you don’t mind me asking, what’s your last name?” Peter had, like you, spent years looking for his soul mate.
- “I think you’re my soulmate” He’d say, dropping his mask
- “And I think you’re mine, Peter Parker”
- You were initially shocked because, who wouldn’t be? Your soulmate was spiderman and he was so attractive.
Falling for each other
- You two took it slowly, hanging out together after school (going to separate schools, you didn’t see each other much during the day
- Peter would talk about you almost constantly to Ned and Michelle and they didn’t believe him at first
- Until you showed up to congratulate him about a decathlon win and they were gobsmacked.
- “Holy shi- Ned, she’s real”
- “Peter wasn’t lying, she’s gorgeous”
- Peter introduces you to them and as he does he’s holding your hand, he’s so nervous that his hands were slightly clammy but it’s okay because so were yours.
- You two often met at libraries to study after school or small cafes, sometimes your houses just to watch a movie and relax.
- By now you’re majorly head over heals for Peter and he is for you too.
- One day when he’s walking you home it’s super cold so he gives you his sweater, assuring you that he’s okay.
- You wear that sweater to school the next day and your friends gush over it, asking when they can met the boy to which you show them a photo of him that you secretly took and they already love him.
- “Did you wear my sweater today?”
- “Yeah, i hope you don’t mind”
- “Of course i don’t, it looks better on you pretty girl”
It’s then and there that Peter finally asks you to be his girlfriend. The scene wasn’t overly romantic, just the two of you walking back to his apartment hand in hand.
Of course you said yes
Your relationship was rather slow paced, starting with small things like holding hands and him wrapping his arms around you
It took about 2 weeks of actual dating before you had your first kiss and it was as perfect as you’d always imagined.
You started hanging out with Ned and Michelle more after school and on weekends, they adored you
- Your relationship with Peter consisted of playfighting, showing each other good music, helping each other with school work and sometimes, having to
bandage his wounds
- “I hate seeing you get hurt all the time”
- “I know, it’s just a shitty part of my job”
- One night, he got hurt worse than other times and you refused to leave him, that was the first night you fell asleep in his arms
- Peter may or may not have stayed awake a bit longer asking himself how he got so lucky??
- Waking up to your boyfriend still fast asleep but holding you tightly in his arms.
- I mean, it was kind of awkward when May walked in and saw you two but she knows how happy you make Peter and just awkwardly turned around and walked out.
- You and Peter attempting to cook breakfast together but it probably ends up in wiping batter on each other and making a complete mess
- He truly adores you, to be honest everyone does
