I know that we all think we’re immortal, we’re supposed to feel that way, we’re graduating. The future is and should be bright, but, like our brief four years in high school, what makes life valuable is that it doesn’t last forever, what makes it precious is that it ends. I know that now more than ever. And I say it today of all days to remind us that time is luck. So don’t waste it living someone else’s life, make yours count for something. Fight for what matters to you, no matter what. Because even if you fall short, what better way is there to live? // The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (2014); Marc Webb.

I want to address something that has been bugging me recently for some reason. 

Basically a lot of times I’ve heard people talk about how it’d be great if Spider-Man had a girlfriend who was a scientist or how Gwen (take your pick of which version) was great because she was a scientist.

Specifically they talk about stuff like that in the context of how Peter has so much in common with Gwen/hypothetical scientist girlfriend who has no personality traits beyond being a scientist.

And almost as frequently from these same people I hear the charge that such girlfriends/Gwen had more in common with Peter precisely because MJ isn’t into science. Indeed Peter and MJ don’t seem to have any  thing in common which is unrealistic and unbelievable.
