Do you have a homecoming date?

Dating Peter Parker Would Involve

Each one I do of these is longer than the last…

  • Peter would have asked you out kind of awkwardly and he would have expected this so he would have written everything down and as he would be explaining how he knows it’s cheesy and dorky you wouldn’t be able to stop smiling so you’d ask him out yourself and he would just have the biggest grin and kiss you.
  • Peter dropping down in front of you or swinging in out of nowhere to give you a kiss
  • Rooftop dates and study dates and ‘lets do random crap’ dates
  • Getting 1am calls from Peter to ask about homework and school and- basically he just calls to talk to you
  • Peter walking you to your locker and home from school everyday
  • Sitting together in every class and always standing up for each other and also laughing and helping each other with the work set
  • Peter drawing you little doodles in the classes you don’t have together because he can’t take his mind off you
  • Watching Star Wars together and Peter not shutting up about how he applied Empire Strikes Back knowledge in real life which makes you laugh and kiss him on the cheek because he’s adorable when he blabs
  • Spontaneous trips to the rooftop of the buildings when one of you can’t sleep so Peter shows up at your window and the two of you sit on the roof together
  • Kind of being complete dorks together but not minding at all
  • Wearing his clothes because his sweaters are warm and comfy and mmm
  • Shutting each other up by kissing each other since you both have a tendency to babble (which Peter would happen to find adorable by the way)
  • “Have people really not worked out you’re spiderman?”
    “Shhh! My Aunt might hear!”
    “You haven’t told her?”
    “Shhh!” 
    He’d step forward, leaning closer so you keep your voice down. You’d be smirking and teasing him now.
    “You’re the only one I’ve told.” 
    And then you’re kissing and his hands are in your hair and on your waist and it’s just this hot, adorable mess of bodies.
  • Constant hand holding
  • When you’re upset Peter just pulls you into a hug and kisses your forehead telling you he loves you so much
  • Peter skyping you after the airport battle and being completely exhausted but when you ask him how it was he just goes “Wow it was amazing! Captain America and- Giant man and star wars and-” And it would be difficult for anyone else to make sense of it all but you’d be able to understand 
  • Peter would give you piggy back rides and you’d just be laughing and burying your face in his neck and he’d spin around and pretend to lose his balance and swing you off and kiss you
  • “I’m coming with you.” 
    “No, you’re not.” 
    “It could be dangerous.” 
    “Yes? Exactly?”
    “Why is it okay for you to put yourself in danger but not for me?” 
    “Because you’re my- Because I lo- Because I’m the one with superpowers here!”
    “Well too bad I’m coming.”
    “Okay come if you can.”
    “Peter… Did you just web my hand to the doorhandle?”
    “No.. Maybe… Yes?”
  • Aunt May would often invite you around for dinner, and lunch, and breakfast - basically she ships you and Peter a lot.
  • “I love you. I love you. I love you.” Big kiss. “You’re amazing.”
  • Being able to be yourselves around each other without fear of judgement.

School suspends gay student for bringing "unwanted publicity" to their anti-gay homecoming policy
Not only did Lance Sanderson not bring a same-sex date to his school's dance, he didn't even attend. Still, he found himself suspended Monday morning.

Lance Sanderson, the high school senior who was told he couldn’t bring a same-sex date to homecoming, was suspended from school for a week because of the “unwanted publicity” he brought upon his school for taking the story to the media. 

“I am disappointed that I am unable to sit in class today,” Sanderson told NewNowNext. “While many assignments can be reached online, I was going to take two tests today and an in-class timed essay. Tomorrow at CBHS, I was going to meet with admissions representatives from around the country (they do not visit often). I hope to be welcomed back into a classroom setting soon.”

Sanderson did send a letter to his school documenting today’s events, wherein he recounts being “told that the administration ‘had 890 other students to worry about’ and could not deal with me.”

“I haven’t done anything wrong and haven’t hurt anybody,” Sanderson continued in his letter, which has yet to receive a response. “I want to be welcomed back to the school building today and I want this mean-spirited semi-suspension ended, so that I can do my classwork like anybody else.”

So now we’re keeping kids out of school because they spoke up and asked about a discriminatory policy? What the literal hell?

on the way to his house you are going worried because you had never seen him using such a serious tone before

you arrive at his apartment and knocks at the door
peter: enter. - he said opening the door and giving a small kiss on your cheek.

y/n: so? what you have to tell me? I’m very curious

peter: well, first you have to promise me you will not run away until I explain everything, okay?

y/n: ok, now you’re scaring me …

peter: I don’t want to scare you… just stay… please.

y/n: fine.

he waits for a few seconds until his hands go to the coat zipper that he was using and he begins to open it, and when he opens it he is wearing a blue and red costume under it

peter: well, this is it, i’m spider-man.

This year I’m a senior and since I was recently diagnosed with leukemia I wasn’t planning on going to my senior homecoming. My motto during my treatment is “take my hand and drag me head first fearless” and to “stay fearless”. Today my doorbell rang and my amazing friend Bridger was dressed as @taylorswift asking if I’d want to be fearless at homecoming!!! BEST DATE AWARD. LIKE EVER. 😹😻❤️👩🏼
