Peter/MJ for the ship meme? :)
One of my first ever real ships and something I still cherish to this day, though my problems and criticisms for it actually stem from the way I’ve grown extremely uncomfortable with the way a lot of writers and fans treat Mary Jane in and out of the relationship with Peter. People tend to have a genuinely shallow interpretation of her character or want to completely dismiss the feminine things that truly make her Mary Jane in writing her and either of those are just no-gos for me.
Also sometimes writers just make Peter an ass and don’t seem to understand they’re doing it? It’s like the Batman effect. “I think he’s so cool, I’ll make him an asshole, because assholes are cool, and everyone in the story who tries to call him out on it are wrong and bad and stupid because I – I mean THIS CHARACTER – rock.”
I have a lot of feelings lol but mostly I’m in the #Protect Mary Jane Watson squad lol
Also a bit off note, I actually think her reinvention in Homecoming works completely with how we understand kids from difficult backgrounds today versus how they were seen in the 60s and 70s. And I like. Want to fight people for her honor. but am holding back for my own sanity
