Imagine an AU where person b is a superhero and person a is the reporter tasked with writing articles and getting photos of them but a is always getting into really perilous situations and person b finds it absolutely hilarious and adorable
Person A: *dangling from a flag pole, clutching their camera and their notepad*
Person B: *currently laughing their ass off*
Person A: what the hell kind of bullshit is this i’m a damsel in distress you get your radiated ass up here right the fuck now and save me before i plummet to my death
Person B: you’re the farthest thing from a damsel i’ve ever seen tbfh
Person A: *being lifted to the ground by Person B* i’ve never been so offended in my life and i hope you rot in the fires of hell but anyway could you sit for an interview
Person A is known school wide for being a player/manwhore/ insert-label-here-that-means-dates-five-people-in-one-month. They decide to ask person B out, who promptly rejects them. Person B tells person A that they know how A is like, so sorry but no thanks. They can be friends though?
And so begins the start of a beautiful friendship. Person a encourages person b, often too much so, and wingmans for them. Person b calls person a out on their bullshit. They get to be surprisingly close friends.
And then one day person b wakes up and realizes:
I like my player/manwhore/insert-label-here-that-means-dates-five-people-in-one-month best friend.
Cue glorious pining
(Of course, person A has slowly fallen in love with person b too over the course of their friendship. Except they’ve been rejected before by person a, and they do realize their own reputation of being a player, even if they actually want something more with person b. So they’ve been quiet on their end, but were they too obvious? Because person a has been acting kinda strange lately; maybe they figured out person a likes them? dID THEY SCREW UP EvERyT hI n G??!?!?!?)
