Black excellence means luxuriating in your Blackness. Just bathing in it. In a world that has told you forever that it’s not ok to be Black and you’re like “No, yes it is. I’m going to be Black as possible. And crush it while doing so.”
Here’s Tracy Clayton and Heben Nigatu from BuzzFeed’s “Another Round” on what Black excellence means to them.
in response to the "why you know so much about everything" post, i would like to inquire about the aforementioned banana famine
Ah, yes, the great Banana Famine. Dark, dark days indeed. Gather round my children, I am going to tell you a story of great tragedy.
Eons back, in a strange far away land, in a world now long gone (circa 1950), the Gros Michel reigned supreme. It was the one Banana to rule All bananas. Gros Michel (literally Fat Michael in French, also known as “Big Mike”) was the main banana cultivar grown in Central America and sold around the globe. A noble specimen, it’s thick peel and dense bunches made it resilient, easy to ship, and yes also fat. Look. Look at it. This banana is thiiiiiiiicc
hard to find good photos. it would have also resembled the goldfinger banana. looooook et it, it so thicc
And all was well and good and peaceful.
Everything changed when the Panama disease attacked.
Ah, the Panama disease. The great banana plague. The Banana Blight, if you will. Songs were written in elegy to the terrible destruction it wrought. Like, actually. Here’s the “Yes we have no bananas” song:
It was Chaos.
Vast tracts of plantation banana trees, noble warriors, slaughtered, cut down in their prime. Ah! the grief. Ah! the loss.
But, amid the havoc of what wikipedia and I refer to as the Gros Michel Devastation Era, an unlikely hero arose. You know it as simply a humble banana. But our hero has a name:
cavendish, it’s named cavendish.
The Cavendish banana, a cultivar that had been mass produced since the turn of the century, but only just then got it’s Time to Shine. For whatever reason, Cavendish bananas grew just fine in the same Panama disease-ridden soil that destroyed Gros Michel trees. So yeah, we planted them, fought the blight, won the war, got bananas back.
But every war has casualties.
Never again were bananas so tasty. Never again, were bananas so thicc.
I warned you this was the story of a tragedy. A moment of silence for our fallen comrade, please. Raise your wands to our late, great hero, Gros Michel.
(You can still get em in some places tho. Or like hybrids? idk. )
And kiddies, that’s the story of the banana famine as i know it.
BANANAS HAD SEEDS HOLY SHIT LOOK AT THIS
LOOK AT IT
bananas were cultivated over time to be seedless.
Bananas were deboned. dwell on that.
feels so wrong but so good
cavendish bananas may or may not be dying. We may or may not see the dark days of plague descend again. idk, look it up.
There’s a story (not proven) that the reason artificial banana flavor tastes weird is b/c it was based on the flavor of the Gros Michel. If so, it might be cause Fat Mike had a stronger taste (due to higher levels of isoamyl acetate). idk.
the “Yes we have no bananas” song was written in 1922 during an earlier outbreak. src. like any good plague, panama disease has a history of hovering over it’s fearful victims, sometimes for years, before striking the final blow.
I’ve seen a few posts about how if/when we get Bi!Dean (and Destiel) some people are worried others may cry ‘fan service’ purely because they haven’t noticed it as a continuous theme through the 12 years of the show so far. So I just wanted to compile a few snippets showing that it has been there all along, it’s not a complete list as I would have to literally spend weeks doing this as there is so much material, but here’s just a few to get started!
1x07: So, it’s season 1, everything is just ramping up so the subtext is very sub…
Dean rejects painting the college kid yet immediately picks up a skin mag (making it sexual), ignoring the actual mag whilst ogling the kid and noticing the point just above his ass that Sam missed? While Sam in an extremely NON sexual manner does the actual painting? Nice…
2x11: There is no way that scene in Playthings is not meant for the audience to notice and pick up on.
We are supposed to pick up on Sam’s totally accurate and straight faced response to this and how Dean reacts, precisely due to it’s accuracy:
Sam: “Well, you are kinda butch, they probably think you’re overcompensating”. Sam is totally straight faced as this is exactly what he thinks is the case as is taking the opportunity to let Dean know that he knows.
source: @shixpe. Meanwhile Dean’s face is like ‘shit… I’m that obvious?’
*TINK LOOKS INTO THE CAMERA*
Season 4: Intro Cas. Now for the ramping up… Dean not so subtly going from small moments of showing himself looking at a guy occasionally or projecting onto Sam “how gay are you?” but now literally licking his own lips, staring at Cas’ lips, comparing them to Thelma and Louise, using his “last day on earth” line on him, I mean, ALL the Cas related chemistry that I won’t even go into here, but here’s a helpful post that has just a few examples of Cas-Dean chemistry over the years which is totally different to any other variation of Cas-Dean, because, that’s love not just lust.
6x09: The one when Dean specifically, not Dean and Sam, is associated with fairies.
Where they sexualised the fairies as naked ladies with nipples on show. Where it’s textually and clearly brought to the audiences attention in this same episode that most people associate fairies with queer men.
Where Dean probably “serviced” Oberon king of the fairies (an easy link to queer King Oberyn in GoT, who’s name Dean uses in 12x18 while Sam uses the very heterosexual Stark name).
Meanwhile Sam nicely and true to form, even soulless, stays resolutely heterosexual and bangs the hippie chick while throughout the whole episode in contrast to Dean is hitting on any woman that moves.
It’s not just that Dean is consistently associated with queer subtext but also how Sam is NOT that shows how purposefully this is done for Dean.
7x12: This episode follows multiple episodes with so much “Dean was is in love with Cas subtext” (Cas dying, the trenchcoat, Sam and Bobby’s reactions, Dean’s alcoholism and coping mechanisms coming out, 7x05: Dean projecting Cas’ betrayal and their subsequent lack of communication which led to Cas’ death onto the witch couple by getting them to communicate leading to their making out furiously… immediately followed by Sam trying to get Dean to talk to him about Cas, 7x09 “Cas, black goo…” etc etc etc…
We have not only blatant Dean-is-queer moments:
But also the whole episode centers around an immortal who dies because they were in love with a Human who couldn’t forgive them for lying…
Then from 8 onwards we have more Dean / Cas parallels with canon romantic couples: Jess/Sam, Mary/John, Cain/Colette, Don/Maggie, David/Violet, Dean/Cassie, Chronos/Lila, Cacao/Betsy, Jesse/Cesar, Jeffery/his demon, Sam/Amelia, Benny/Andrea, Prometheus/Hayley, Dean/Amara, Ishim/Lily, Gavin/Fiona, Corbin/Michelle…
Ok so this isn’t a Destiel post, it’s a Dean is bi post, but you know, at this point they’re kind of interlinked, because Cas has a male body from season 9 onwards, that isn’t his vessel, it’s him, so there you go, have that too.
You mean THESE triplets? The only twins/triplets in the bar? Where the guy behind looks like he’s the additional triplet by his placement and his outfit being the exact in between of the who playing? The ones who Crowley was seen talking to again in the same episode?
Either way, even if for some reason it wasn’t these particular triplets, cos you know, triplets are super common, it’s still heavily implied (and referred to again throughout seasons 10,11 and 12) that Dean had some kind of sex with triplets and Crowley, who “rubbed off all over him”…
On top of that, sorry to be crude, but we also have these moments:
So…. Dean is sick of hiding behind his facade? Do you think maybe it’s time someone came along and helped him see that he no longer needs to hide behind this wall? For a whole two seasons subtext be based around showing that Dean is in love with Cas and also kinda doesn’t mind pop music for example, is actually not quite the dude bro he makes himself our to be and has a facade up that stops him from showing it?
Insert Amara. Whose name literally means Love. The expositional character of Dean’s innermost feelings, the extension of which is Mary, who ultimately leads to these feelings coming out after having been addressed for these two seasons…
Where an all knowing love - monster taking on her appearance tells him:
“I can see inside your heart. Feel the love you feel. Except…it’s cloaked in shame”.
Where in the SAME EPISODE Dean tells Sam that he doesn’t feel love for Amara. So who can this possibly be referring to? For whom might he feel love cloaked in SHAME based on the last 10 years of what he have learned about Dean? Where only two episodes before Dean is told by a “wise woman” (who in film always sees truth) that he is pining for someone. PINING, a term interchangeable with LONGING. With whom do we associate LONGING?
I mean honestly… like we need an exposition for what this is all about…
Meanwhile, if there were any issues with Dean feeling that Hunting and being queer are frowned upon they nicely insert an amazingly, fantastically, blatantly mirrored Dean/Jesse Cas/Cesar episode, even down to the brother focused story, the way Cesar and Dean click and interact so similarly to Dean/Cas and the shoulder patting being the most we actually see of them being romantic, I mean JEEZ:
And now if he needed to hammer it home even further:
I mean, I think he gets the picture… it’s nothing to be ashamed of now.
So now thanks to his own personal growth, all this and the extension of Amara, Mary, Dean has finally faced his past, his feelings and given his wall the metaphorical and literal heave - ho:
1. Dean is bisexual. Dean has always been bisexual, he was closeted for so long, but after all this time and thanks to his being in love with one guy in particular and Mary’s role in his self awareness and self acceptance arc, now is more or less the perfect moment to come out…
2. Dean met and over time went from lusting after to being deeply in love with Cas, who is now male, it is HIS body and he identifies with it as such, who has inconveniently right after this moment of final clarity for Dean, died what seemed to Dean to be a true and permanent Death while he screamed ‘noooo’, fell to his knees in shock and nicely paralleled two of the most doomed - romance canon couples in the show within 5 minutes (Jess and Sam and Cain and Colette).
Both sides of this have come to a climax at the end of season 12, I believe leading to things really happening now moving forwards… So this, when it all comes to the forefront is NOT fan service.
It has been there all along, at first subtly, then growing, finally becoming core to the main plot of the character and plot based storylines until this point.
Summary: Y/N has lived next to Peter since the 3rd grade and since has fallen hard for him, but Y/N doesn’t know he’s fallen just as hard.

A/N: This is my first Imagine ever so I’m sorry for the grammar mistakes and if i messed up the point of view a little bit, I’m practicing and heres my first go at it! I hope you guys enjoy it! Also its not a concrete idea yet but i might make more parts to this
“Hey, MJ does Peter ever talk about me?” you ask staring across the lunch room at the boy you’ve had a crush on ever since you laid eyes on him in the 3rd grade. You hear Michelle sigh and close her book “Y/N just go over there and talk to him.” your eyes widen at your best friend for suggesting such a thing. “I can’t just go over there and talk to him without cause, plus..” you sigh sinking further into your seat at the lunch table “he likes Liz, remember?” Just before Michelle can get a word in about your lack of confidence towards guys, the bell rings signaling the end of lunch and beginning of the five minuet passing period to the next class.
You quickly gather your things heading out of the lunchroom and to your next class, gym.
“Hey, Y/N wait up!” you hear the familiar voice of Liz speak as everyone makes their way out of the locker rooms and into the main gym. You falter in your walk just a little hearing Liz say your name, you haven’t ever really been friends or even acquaintances with her since knowing that Peter has a crush on the girl. “Yes?” you smile as she slows her pace next to you “I’m having a party tomorrow night at my place, do you wanna come?” your mind goes blank for a minuet, Liz is asking me to her party? what? “I already asked Michelle if she could come and she said you were free so i thought i’d ask.” Liz practically read your mind, so Michelle is to blame, she’s gonna pay. “Yea, sure I’ll come, it sounds fun.” She smiles before she runs off ahead of you. “Hey Flash,” You hear her shout before she vanishes into the crowd of teenagers.
“Alright, well i think he’s a war criminal now but these are state required so lets get to work .” The gym teacher spoke after the video of Captain America ended waving his hand for everyone to get down from the bleachers and take their places on the mats.
You finally spot Michelle in the crowd of teenagers and grabbed ahold of her arm before she could lay on a mat. “Hey could we be partners?” You ask letting go of your bestie laying on the mat, “Mind if we take this mat next to you guys?” A voice that made your heartstrings tingle spoke, you quickly turn your head to see Peter laying down and getting ready to go his first sit-up. “No-not at all.” you blush and turn on your other side to come face to face with a book “Michelle” You groan louder than intended, “We’re suppose to be doing sit-ups.” You grab the book tilting it away from her face, Michelle sighs and turns on her back pushing her book up and down from her face “There happy, I’m exercising now.” She mumbled making you laugh slightly.
“Hey what about Spider-Man?” You sit up and whip your head around to the bleachers where a certain group of popular girls were sitting, “What about him Liz? You got a crush?” a friend of hers teased, “Well I mean yes he’s pretty hot but he’s also a hero you can’t leave him out.” You could see a slight pink shade her cheeks after she spoke.
“Hey, uh Peter knows Spider-Man!” Ned practically yelled from the mat next to you, what? how does Peter know Spider-Man? I mean maybe he got saved by him? But what? You were pulled from your thoughts when Peter spoke, “Well Uh we-wel yes i do, because of the Stark internship i have but i’m not suppose to talk about it.” Peter spoke through gritted teeth when he ended his sentence. “Wait Penis Parker knows Spider-Man? And has a Stark internship? Wow this is too good, what other lies ya got?” Flash finally joined the conversation. You sighed and turned your attention back to laying down and staring at the ceiling till the end of the period.
“Well if you know him so well why don’t you invite him to Liz’s party tomorrow night?” Flash asked sarcasm clear in his voice, “Wait-wait Liz is having a party?” You perked up again at the sound of Peter’s slightly hurt voice. “Yeah, tomorrow night, my parents are out of town, you and Ned are more than welcome to come and you don’t gotta bring Spider-Man.” You could practically hear the smile in Peters voice when he replied “No-No yeah I’d love to come.” You rolled your eyes and tried to drown out the rest of the conversation.
“Okay, see ya tomorrow.” Liz spoke before the bell rang, finally. You make your way back to the locker room and change out of the gym uniform and into your regular clothes.
Well tomorrow night should be interesting, I wonder if Peter really knows Spider-Man you smile at the thought, that’d be fucking awesome.
Michelle and you took the bus together after school planning on having a sleepover and carpooling to Liz’s party the next day. “I can’t believe you already said i would go without asking me.” you lightly punch Michelle on the arm while getting ready for bed. “Hey what better things do you have going on tomorrow, staring at peter though the peep hole of your apartment again?” Michelle teased, you gasped and placed your hand on your heart pretending to be hurt by the comment. “Michelle that is an important activity and I cannot miss it.” You dramatically said and plopped down onto your bed for the night, the couch. Michelle and you always sleep on her couch for sleepovers, its big enough and comfy as hell.
“Oh whatever Y/N.” she groaned taking her place on the couch and turning on the tv. Within minuets your eyes start to get heavy, you finally give into the sleep tugging at you and fall asleep.
“Thanks for the ride!” you shout at Michelle’s dad before Michelle slams the car door shut. MJ and you start towards the front door already hearing the loud music coming from inside. “Michelle are you sure about this?” You ask grabbing her arm forcing her to stop and look at you “Look Y/N, when are you ever gonna do something like this ever again. Plus, its all apart of the high school experience.” She shrugged making her way to the front door and inside with you trailing behind her.
You were immediately greeted by Liz and shown the way to the kitchen “incase you need something to drink” Liz told you leaving you and focused her attention back onto the party. “Ok so now I Just wait for something to happen?” you spoke to yourself as you grabbed a red solo cup and filled it with water from the fridge. You made your way out of the kitchen and to the couch in the living room, where did MJ go? I’m like the only other person besides Liz she knows here so where - your thoughts were interrupted when your eyes met with the chocolatey eyes of the boy you’ve been waiting for all night.
You smile towards Peter earning a grin back from him before his attention was sent somewhere else, probably Flash shouting “wheres your friend Spider-man? I don’t see him..” You rolled your eyes and made your way over to the duo standing in the middle of the hallway, “Hey hey guys,” you nervously spoke “Finally made it.” you smiled over at Ned, his attention on the rest of the party and not you. “Yeah we got-” Peter got interrupted by a shout from the family room “If you wanna play a game come to the family room now!” you felt a hand wrap around your arm before you could protest you were in the family room seated next to Liz, Peter diagonally across from you with ned next to him and Michelle on your other side.
“Alright,” you heard Liz speak next to you “what game should we play.” a couple of hands flew up in the air and some people shouted suggestions. “How about Seven Minuets In Heaven?!” one voice shouted louder than the others, you looked over at Liz to see she was already ginning with a bottle being handed to her. “Seven Minuets In Heaven it is.” She quickly snapped her head over at you “Y/N, you spin first.” she shoved the bottle into your hand.
“No-no I’m really fine-” you didnt get to finish when you felt a sharp pain in your side from Michelle, your head spun to her side giving her a “what the hell!” look and receiving a shrug in response. You sucked in a breath, all apart of the high school experience right? you tried to reason with yourself. You put the bottle on its side on the ground and spun it, your heat begins beating faster and faster as it comes to a slow down. The bottle finally comes to a stop and your eyes rake up to where it landed, Peter Parker.
You gulped waiting for his reaction as people around him whopped for him but he just sat there eyes wide. “come one you too!” Liz sounded so gleeful and lightly shoved my shoulder for me to get up. Peter must’ve took that as a hint as well and stood up “Wher-uh What closet should we go to?” Peter asked clearing his voice. “the one right at the top of the stairs, we’ll make sure no one goes in.” Liz smiled at Peter and you while you made your way up the stairs. Oh god, what am i going to do, what if he doesn’t want to do anything with me? what if he kisses me and I’m not a good kisser or my breathe stinks- you were ripped out of your thoughts as the closet door was closed and Peter and you were left in the dark.
“uh we-we don’t have to do anything.” you whispered barely audible as you watched Peter set a timer on his phone for seven minuets. “Wh-why don’t we ask each other questions?” Peter asked making a blush creep onto your face, thank god this closet is dark and peters phone light is horrible. “sure-e” you nervously stutter, “you first.” you poke his chest earning a small laugh from him. “Okay, is it true that you have a 4.0 grade average?” You couldn’t help the laugh that escaped your lips, “What?” Peter asked you could hear the confusion in his voice, “thats the question you wanna ask?” you placed your hand on Peters arm, what am I doing? I’m movign way too fast, “Is that bad?” Peter moved closer to you making you back up into the wall of the closet, your smile fading and a deeper bush replacing it. “uh-no no, I’d just rather not answer it.” You spoke truthfully, “alright,” you could see the smile form on peters face as he inched closer to you.
“your turn.” he whispered making your breath hitch in your throat, he’s so close, if i just move forward slightly i’d finally have my first kiss and with the guy of my dreams, you thought. “you got a question yet?” Peters smile started fading looking into your eyes, “uh- yes, did you really make your own computer?” your eyes scanned peters, he’s so close you can see his beautiful brown ombre iris’s, dark brown to a slightly lighter brown. Your breath hitched in your throat again as Peter flashed his eyes down to your lips for a split second. You start to lean into him, closer and closer to his face when your lips just barely graze each other and then Peters phone goes off.
He jumped back slightly from the sudden noise and looked down at his phone, “Has it already been seven minuets?” You laugh slightly feeling embarrassed for getting so intimate with Peter. “No..” he paused looking up from his phone and into your eyes “But i gotta, I’m really sorry Y/N, I gotta go.” He shook his head slightly before opening the closet and leaving you behind. you stood there shocked, not able to move. Peter and I almost kissed was all you could think as a deep blush crept back onto your face.
You exited the closet and went to see if you could find him at the party anywhere. you got a few weird looks after asking some people if they saw him anywhere but no one could help, not even Ned knew where Peter went.
“Well it’s too bad, we didn’t even get to see his ‘friend’ Spider-Man.” Flash spoke sarcastically to you, you just turned around to go look for MJ and tell her about what had happened, how you almost kissed your life long crush and how he almost kissed you back.
So it was a long weekend near the beginning of the school year and you, Peter, Ned, and MJ ended up on the road with Peter’s Aunt May to go on a camping trip.
It was kind of a long drive
Ok it wasn’t that long but when you ended up sitting in the backseat squished between MJ and Ned it felt really long
Only because Ned and Peter were arguing about Star Wars and Michelle had her head stuck in a book
Not to mention the fact that you got car sick
Halfway through the drive you started to feel really nauseous and Peter being the smol, soft bean ™ that he is, noticed you weren’t feeling well
“Y/N what’s wrong?”
“Nothing, just a bit nauseous from the traffic and sitting in the middle and such,”
“Aunt May can you pull over?” He asked
“Peter, if you haven’t noticed I can’t exactly do that, we’re in the middle of a three lane highway stuck in traffic,”
Peter sighed and un did his seatbelt
“Okay, Y/N, climb over the middle and you sit here, and then i’ll climb over and sit where you’re sitting,”
You took a second to process what Peter had said but you listened, un did your seatbelt and moved to the front seat of the car
YA BOI PETER WAS STILL SITTING THERE AND YOU ENDED UP IN HIS LAP
YOU WERE BOTH BLUSHING SO HARD
MAY JUST CHUCKLED TO HERSELF
Eventually, Peter moved out from under you (wink wonk) and moved to the back seat
It wasn’t the much longer of a drive but every once and a while Peter would still check on you to make sure you were feeling alright.
When you finally got there and clambered out of the car, Peter and Ned began pulling out everyone’s things
“Did you two idiots think that maybe we should build our tents first before we pull everything else out?” MJ said
Then Ned did that cute thing he does in Homecoming where he touches his nose and points (ya know when he found out that the internship was just Peter being Spiderman and then Peter forced Ned to leave his room)
So Peter and Ned pulled out the tents
Initially you and May had offered to help
MJ said she would rather sit on the picnic bench and watch them struggle
Peter and Ned insisted that they didn’t need your help
BUT THESE TWO HEADASSES
They spent so much time struggling not actually understanding how to put a tent together
You eventually decided to help them
“Y/N are you sure that’s right? Ned and I pretty much had this figured out,”
“HA YOU’RE FUNNY PARKER,”
Literally you took over and everything was done in five minutes
Ned believed in you the entire time
Peter just wanted to look manly in front of you but we don’t talk about that
“Can we start the campfire yet”
“Peter its not even close to being dark”
“Oh come on Y/N”
One simple glare from you would completely shut him up
May decided that instead of sitting around on your camp ground that you four needed to go exploring and she would set up the other tent
Michelle refused to leave her book despite Peter’s protests
You found yourselves by a river in a small wooded area
You begged everyone to go exploring
Michelle kindly declined and sat down on a rock to keep reading
Ned decided that he wasn’t interested in falling into a river while climbing around and stayed near Michelle
PETER STARTED OFF SAYING THAT MAYBE YOU GUYS SHOULDN’T GO WANDERING BUT THE SECOND YOU SAID “what are you scared Spiderman?” THIS BOY BASICALLY CHALLENGED YOU
HE NEEDED TO PROVE TO YOU (the love of his life ofc) THAT HE WAS NOT AFRAID
LOL SO YOU TWO HEADASSES END UP CROSSING THIS RIVER
Lmao but its flowing really fast and Peter was trying to show off
This boy fucking slips off the rock he was on and ends up in the river
BUT HE DOESNT JUST FALL IN
THE CURRENT PULLS HIM DOWNSTREAM FOR LIKE 200 METERS
Lmaooo you hurry to get back to the river bank and shout to Michelle and Ned to help you save Peter
You’d think with being an Avenger and all this boy would be able to stand on a fucking rock
When you got to Peter he was pulling himself ashore
“Peter you idiot! I almost had a heart attack”
“Almost? You mean me falling into a river only almost sent you into cardiac arrest?”
“Shut up Peter you scared me”
Peter pulls you in for a hug
“OH MY GOD GET OFF ME YOU’RE SOAKED”
“But I thought I scared you, i’m only trying to make you feel better”
And then he would hug you tighter while you struggled to get away
Ned and Michelle were standing a few feet away, forced to listen to the two of you
*cough* “get a room” *cough*
“What was that Ned?”
“Oh nothing, Y/N”
When you got back to the camp site May was not pleased with Peter
“Peter BeNJAMIN PARKER”
“ITS NOT MY FAULT. Y/N AND I WERE CLIMBING NEAR THE RIVER AND THEY JUST PUSHED ME IN AND I-“
“BULLSHIT PETER I DID NO SUCH THING”
May stood there with her hands on her hips glaring at the two of you
“Peter go change before you catch a cold. I can’t believe all of you I leave you alone for 30 minutes and my nephew comes back with half the river on him,”
When Peter came back he was in a pair of sweats and a tshit with his wet hair forming into his luscious curls that you really wanted to run your fingers though
“Can we start the fire now?”
“It will be dark soon…” Ned added
“Jeez fine but you two have to go get the fire wood,”
Ned and Peter began wandering off to find that fire wood
Jokes on them though
May bought firewood while you were trying to pullPeter out of the river
You had the fire started in less than five minutes
Peter and Ned didn’t even care that you pointlessly sent them out into the woods to get wood because THEY WERE JUST SO EXCITED FOR THE CMAPFIRE
You were all sitting around the campfire just enjoying each other’s company and
It started to get dark and C O L D cause u idiots went camping in october
But you were sitting next to Peter and this boy noticed you shivering and low-key moved closer to you
“Y/N do you want my sweater”
“But then you’ll freeze”
Peter rolled his eyes at you “I’m spiderman ill be fine”
“That can’t be your excuse for everything”
“But I’m spiderman”
“Fine give me your sweater you can freeze”
Peter slips his sweater off and hands it to you
IT WAS SOCOMFY
You JUST SNUGGLE DEEPER INTO IT AND IT SMELLS LIKE PETER ANDYOUR HEART JUST MELTS A LIL BIT
“You having a good time with my sweater there Y/N?”
“Actually I am. I might have to take this sweater back to my sleeping bag with me tonight. I think this sweater can show me a good time,”
“Oh my god Y/N, Peter please stop flirting the rest of us have to sit here and listen to the two of you,”
Eventually you guys decided to make s’mores
BOI IT WAS GREAT
You all were roasting marshmallows
May refused to let any of you be in charge of chocolate and gram crackers so she was manning the station
May was right
There were accidents
There was chocolate smeared
There were broken crackers
There was marshmallow stuck to things it should not be stuck to
Long story short, It’s good that marshmallow washes out of hair
Ok lets go into the story cause LMAO WE GOTTA
He got marshmallow in your hair
“I’M SORRY Y/N I DIDN’T MEAN TO”
PeTeR pArkEr yOuRe goInG tO pAy FOr tHiS”
Needless to say, Peter had some marshmallow in more than just his hair by the time you got to him
When you were done s’mores May offered to tell you all a ghost story
She actually managed to scare Ned
And May decided to graciously spook you guys and then head to her tent to go to bed
Michelle told the next story
SHE SPOOKED ALL OF YOU
You and Peter were curled under a blanket
YOU TWO WERE ACTUALLY LOOKING BEHIND YOU GUYS AFRAID THAT SOMEONE WAS GONNA GET YOU
“OK NO MORE GHOST STORIES”
Ned suggested truth or dare
It was a little after 10pm and you losers were sitting around a campfire that was burning out and playing truth or dare
It was stupid stuff at first
Until Michelle dared you to kiss Peter
“You don’t have to kiss me Peter,”
“Are you kidding? If we don’t kiss you have to go into the woods and bring back a rock. No way am I letting you go out there. What if Michelle’s story was true? What then? You’d be dead,”
“Good to know you’re willing to kiss me only so I don’t die”
“No! No! That’s - I didn’t - no- I mean I always want to - I don’t want you to… I want to kiss you!”
Instead of waiting for your response Peter just full out kisses you
And by full out
I mean as full out as two fifteen year old’s can kiss.
Peter pulled away and LOWKEY THE BOHT OF YOU WERE SMILING LIKE CRAZY
“Well I’m gonna head to bed”
“YEAH ME TOO”
You and Peter were left alone, sitting very close to one another, under the same blanket, UNDER THE STARS, in front of a dying fire
OFC YOU’RE GOING TO CUDDLE
“So did you really only kiss me because you dind’t want me to die,”
“I mean it’s one of the reasons”
“So what are the others”
“Ah, you don’t get to find out that easily”
“Fine. Truth or dare,”
“I dare you to tell me the other reasons”
“That’s not fair”
“Do you want me to make you go into the woods and get a rock?”
Peter started leaning closer to you
“You wouldn’t send me out there. You’re too scared to be alone”
“Not true” you lied
Peter STILL LEANING CLOSER
THIS BOY WAS KISSING YOU AGAIN
LIKE LIPS ON YOURS
ACTUAL LIP AND TOUNGE ACTION FROM THE LOVE OF YOUR LIFE PETER PARKER
“I still don’t know the other reasons”
“Oh my god, Y/N,”
You and Peter sat by the fire until it died completely
“C’mon Y/N, I wanna look at the stars”
Peter dragged you away from your comfortable seat
He was holding your hand
The blanket was wrapped over his shoulder and your shoulder so it was like one giant cape for two people
Two person cape
NOT THE POINT BUT
Peter leads you to the picnic table where you lie down on the table and look up at the stars
Peter never let go of your hand
you’re cuddled up next to him while he points at all the stars and explains the different constellations
You loved it the this boy talked
It was so precious when he got excited about something
Eventually when you started yawning Peter realized how late it was
“WE should probably go to bed”
“I kind of don’t want to get up”
Headasses fell asleep the tbale like ten minutes later
You frequently woke up throughout the night FREEZING
It dropped down to almost 0 degrees and you and Peter only had the one blanket
Peter kept pulling you closer to him
When you woke up in the morning the sun was shining and Everyone else was sitting at the other picnic table eating breakfast
“Good morning” May greeted you
You slowly sat up, unwrapping yourself from Peter’s arms
“You two look comfy” ned said wiggling his eyebrows at you
Peter woke up and joined your guys at breakfast
He brought the blanket with him and sat down next to you, keeping himself wrapped up
Only letting one arm snake out so he could wrap it around your waist and pull you closer to him
“You were my furnace, now I’m cold and I need you to warm me up again,”
“SURE” Ned said
Let’s just say that the rest of the camping trip was a hell of a lot more of the same thing
Can you give me examples of actors and actresses that have amazing chemistry like Dobsley ?
OK so these are pairings that got me in terms of chemistry, whether or not I ship their dynamic is completely different although I ship most of these, and this is just chemistry like sexual and/or romantic, intense and/or hot and I’m choosing shows other than TVD.
Gong Yoo and Kim Go-Eun
Sarah Michelle Gellar and David Boreanaz
Sophia Bush and Chad Michael Murray
Aldis Hodge and Jurnee Smollett-Bell
Brett Dier and Gina Rodriguez
[I just have to say that finding the Villadero gifs almost killed me because I didn’t see the episode in which that happened but I just saw Jane’s reaction to it happening and it was unbelievably painful]
ok but marvel can go on and on about how fucking smart they were on trolling us and that michelle will never be mj and michelle isn’t mj but let’s get this straight ok
i don’t know if y'all didn’t watch the same movie as i did but right after she tells them to call her mj, it gets the audience’s attention and everyone’s watching her so u can’t tell me y'all missed this:
when peter leaves to go see happy michelle literally makes goo goo eyes at him like i’m not kidding did u see the look she gave him as he walked away
you can’t possibly watch that scene and try to tell me that michelle doesn’t have the tiniest hint of a crush on peTER like ?? maybe homegirl doesn’t know it yet but she definitely has a crush on the boy
and marvel and sony and kevin feige can try to troll u all u want but michelle x peter IS happening,,if not in the second movie (which is very unlikely) then in the third movie
they may not be endgame but i can’t fucking wait to see it happen because Peter is finally getting the love interest he deserves !!
ok my headcanon is that Peter joins the GSA at his school after the spider bite and Michelle is there? And then he has to figure out if she's a lesbian or what because oops! Someone has a crush!
peter: so….. that spider-man.,,,,,.. what do you think about him
mj: he’s alright
peter: so… are you like,,,,,, attracted??,
mj: i Said, he’s Alright,
peter: i know BUT do you mean he’s alright as in he’s Alright or he’s ALLLLright 👌 in the way you said that you think michelle obama is alright because i know you have a crush on michelle obama and you said she was alright but you SMILED so would you then therefore have a crush on spider-man if you think he’s alright, but you didn’t smile, like i’m just Curious i’m just Wanting To Know
mj: i can’t tell if you’re asking me if i’m bisexual or if you’re having a stroke
“What episode of “Glee” have you revisited the most?”
Probably the one when we went to New York in Season 2. That’s one of my most favorite episodes, and it was personally such a special episode for me because I had just left New York a year prior, and the next thing you know I was coming back one year later with this hugely successful show being followed by, I think, close to, like 200 fans and paparazzi. So, for me, it was crazy to be in these places that I’d walked through hundreds of times in my life, but now in such a different way. So, that was such a pivotal episode for me.
ok but you know the jeremy jordan arm thing. like that thing he does in all his roles where he’s got one arm around the person and the other sweeping out over the distant horizon as he gazes off, longing for a better life. you know that thing
Could we have Spideychelle if they were in University? Love the headcanons you've had so far, they're so good~~~ <3 <3 <3
ok because they’re really smart they both get into the same uni
with scholarships and all
can u believe
tony is a proud iron-dad
so he buys peter an apartment that is fully furnished as a ‘congrats, son’ gift
best dad ever
meanwhile, michelle is looking for a place that is cheap and affordable
she knows she could just go up to peter and room with him for a bit but her ego is too big for that
but it’s 2 weeks before her first sem starts and she’s homeless
because she already kinda told her parents that she has a place to live and all
she finds herself knocking on his door at 8 pm w her suitcase, in her pjs
ofc he answers and is shook
bc lets be real, when is he not shook
surprise surprise! there are 2 bedrooms
michelle crashes on the couch tho,,bc the other bedroom is covered in moving boxes
who knew peter had a lot of stuff amirite
actually, the whole apartment is a MESS
it’s covered in a bunch of boxes
but she’s too tired for that rn so she thanks him and she’s out in a few seconds
the next morning, she wakes up and she’s not on peter’s couch?? tf??
she sits up immediately and is ready to F I G H T
but then she sees the blue lightsaber lying in the corner
and she’s like ‘oh, so i’ve not been taken’
she takes her time to really take in peter’s room
his bedsheets smell like him and everything is so cozy and warm and smol
she wants to lay here forever
but then it hits her
‘if she was here, where was he?’
he’s on the couch, passed out
she stands there and stares at him for a bit
then she decides the best way to wake him up is by flicking his forehead aggresively (stydia, is that u?)
he’s panicked for a moment but then he sees her and he calms down
“i was fine on the couch, you know.”
‘i was out anyway, i didn’t get home till 3 am”
ah. spiderman duties.
she decides to make him breakfast, it’s the least she could do
but he convinces her to stay there permanently
they could split the bills
“it’ll be so cool, mj! we’d me roOMATES!”
and she agrees and
oh god what did she get herself into
ok so they’re one week into uni and things are good
turns out, that living with each other was a good thing
mj cooks for him bc lets be real, peter can’t cook for shit
she also cleans around the place and organizes his stuff because she’s secretly a perfectionist
it’s nice to come home to peter trying to hum the imperial march obnoxiously
peter isn’t a slob but he can be real annoying with his web fluids and whatnot
and mj is making friends??yay!!
turns out people at college are so much more cooler than the losers at midtown
though she misses them
ned is over like almost everyday
although her room is furnished now,
she falls asleep more on the couch than on her actual bed
but she never wakes up on the couch
hmm i wonder why
and there’s always a mug of tea waiting for her in the morning on the kitchen counter
she also always finds little chocolate bars on her pillow
esp after a stressful day
so life is basically gr8 right now
but then mid terms roll around
peter is surprisingly calm and chill about it
but he’s super smart so she gets that
she’s super stressed tho
cos she really wants to be responsible and make her parents happy
but it’s hard
she’s having the worst day
her first paper is in two days and she is nowhere near ready
her clothes are ruined bc of the pouring rain
and all her notes are ruined
she really wants to cuddle up in her bed and maybe eat one of the chocolate bars on her pillow
but then she hears it
she hears peter and a girl
she can hear said girl’s giggles coming from his room
and michelle is never jealous of another girl ok
WOMEN NEED TO SUPPORT AND LOVE EACH OTHER
but it’s hard when she’s having what could possibly be the worst day of her life and the guy she’s most definitely in love with is probably in there with some other girl who’s probably SO MUch more prettier than she is and she’s about to fail her mid terms
she wants to cry honestly
so she does
she does what every girl does
she grabs a tub of ice cream and aggresively sticks her spoon into it and sits on her bed
she’s reading a bunch of sad poems and she’s cryinf and her mouth is full of rocky road
and peter’s stupid chocolate bar is staring at her like he’s judging her from next door
once she’s run out of ice-cream, she calls her brother
and she cries
because she misses him and she misses midtown and she misses when peter parker was her nerd and she misses being responsible and actually good at school
but her brother has to be in south africa now, being a good doctor and shit
so she calls ned
and she’s having a panic attack now
and ned’s voice is so calming it makes her calm down for a bit
ned is at the apartment in a few
what a good friend honestly
and she starts crying again
because he’s such a nice person she doesn’t deserve him
ned realises that she’s just sad and stressed
ned also suspects that this has something to do with peter
once she’s asleep
he knocks on peter’s door
peter and girl are making out
ned is disgusted
so he chases the girl out and hits peter with all his strength
“dude! what was that for!’
“michelle was literally in tears and you’re making out with some girl?”
“what happened? where is she? is she ok?”
“yeah, no thanks to you.”
so ned tells him everything
and he’s like ‘the chocolate bars are sweet but i think she needs her roommate and her best friend.”
and peter’s mind kind of goes into a slideshow of all the times she’s been there for him
when ben died and she was the only one who didn’t give him that pity look
with his ptsd after the infinity war
helping him calm down and study for the sats
the one who told him his results mid-battle
the one who constantly takes care of him and his wounds after fights
the one who cooks him breakfast
the one who pushed flash into a bush when he was making fun of peter
and then he realises that he’s been such a fratboy dick lately
michelle only wakes up at 2 am the next morning
her room isn’t a mess anymore
there’s a glass of water at her bedside table
she tries to go back to sleep because call it a feeling but she just knows that peter is awake and she doesn’t want to look at him rn
she’s too hungry for that
so she carefully sneaks into the kitchen
it’s empty, thank god
there’s a container with some spaghetti in it
but oh wait! there’s a note
‘figured you’d be hungry. p.s. i didn’t cook this don’t worry’
she’s kinda still mad at him but halfway through the meal
she realises that peter is gonna meet other girls and his life isn’t going to revolve around her anymore
he’s probably going to marry some pretty girl who’s super smart and awesome and nerdy
and she’ll be all alone with her stupid college degree and a bunch of cats, still in love with peter parker
little did she know lmao
so she’s not really mad at him anymore but more mad at herself because of all the people in the universe, she had to go and fall for peter fucking parker
she decides to study because what good is being emotionally stable if she’s going to fail her mid-terms amirite?
so she pulls out her book and
OH MY FUCKING GOD YOU GUYS GET THIS
there are little flashcards waiting for her
and she already knows this is peter’s doing
her heart feels like it’s going to burst because it’s so full
so beyonce is blasting through her headphones
and she’s studying with this stupid smile on her face
because of peter fucking parker
thank god tomorrow is a saturday
peter stops being an asshole and running away from his crush on mj
they become a hella lot closer
michelle hugs him when she gets her results for the paper she was so worried about
she treats him when he gets his results
aunt may is secretly planning their wedding
ned really wants to propose to michelle on behalf of peter
