whoops, my hand slipped and here is a much more fic-like set of bullet points that i don’t have to heart to actually turn into a fic. part of a trilogy it seems. parts one, two, THREE (this one!), four, five, six, seven, eight, nine.
to know about michelle: she’s very good at keeping secrets
when she was eight years old, her older brother broke the brand new watch his
parents had gotten him for christmas. he begged her not to tell anyone, most
especially their parents or her four year old sister who would undoubtedly
tattle to their parents. she never spoke a word of it to anyone and helped him
fix it as best they could so that her parents never found out.
when she was eleven, she had the biggest crush on this one girl in her class, layla.
and one day, one of her best friends alex told her that he had a crush on
layla. so she never spoke a word of her crush, nor of alex’s, to anyone. that
is, until one day alex and layla walked around the playground at lunch time
holding hands and told everyone they were now dating.
then after she moved to new york, spent the year trying to find a place for
herself, and then finally found and joined academic decathlon, she met peter
parker and liz allan. and she knew immediately that peter parker liked liz. he
always stared at her during practice and smiled at her whenever she glanced at
him. she heard him talking about her at lunch. everyone knew that peter had a
crush on liz. but one day after practice, she was in the bathroom stall when
liz and her friend betty walked into the restoom, chatting.
my goodness I can’t believe you have a crush on that freshman.” betty scoffed. “really
liz, like half the junior class is in love with you and you’ve got heart eyes
for the scrawny kid from, what is it, queens?”
really sweet!” liz laughed. “I think he’s really cute. he’s always nice to me. can’t
I like someone who also likes me? is that really a crime?”
course not.” betty sighed. “I’m just saying. he’s a freshman, you’re a junior. in
two years, you’ll be going to college and he will still be here. do you really
don’t know.” liz replied, pausing for a while before michelle heard the sink
start to run water. “peter is really sweet and smart. i’d like to see what
fine.” betty laughs. “but don’t wait for that boy to ask you out because he
seems shocked every time you even look his way.” they both laugh and with that,
walk out of the bathroom.
never spoke of that incident to anyone either. so, she’s good at keeping quiet
when she needs to be. which is why she never tells peter that she knows. knows that he spends his time
stopping bank robberies, muggings, and helping old ladies cross the street. knows
that he saved her friends in washington dc. knows that he’s the reason liz’s
dad went to prison and she had to move to oregon. she doesn’t tell anyone this.
not even peter.
Why is it always the others reacting to Ryan without his mask on in the FAHC universe? Why not the other way around? Why not have Ryan see Ray in a suit for the first time and walk straight into a door? Why not have an AU where Ryan has been working with this British hacker for a while, but has never seen his face until one day the guy walks in and Ryan goes, “Ryan, my name is hello.” Just stuff like that.
My biggest concern about SNK Season 2 is that they might completely gloss over Eren’s relationship with Historia just like they did to his relationship with Annie because they can’t bear for Eren to be close to a female character who isn’t Mikasa.
