michelle moved with her family to new york when she started high school
mj was actually pretty sad to leave her friends back in chicago because it had
taken a long time to make those friends and she always feels awkward around new
she isn’t very happy about The Move
comes from a loving family
she gets kissed every night before she goes to bed, her parents read her
bedtime stories until she was ten, she used to wear matching outfits with her
mother, family movie nights were every friday
parents were really good to her for the most part and just loved and supported
also pretty smart and since mj has pretty much always been inspired by them so
intelligence and the acquisition of knowledge is really important to her
reading and academic decathlon, but she’s also into math and science too
because she’s very driven and doesn’t have that many friends in new york so
what else is she gonna do?
her parents are an interracial couple and they’ve encountered a lot of hate and
mj was always so sad when she walked out with her mother and people would give
them weird looks
she’s tried to end hate whenever she can and fights to give a voice to those
who are silenced
now cue mj going to high school in new york
joins academic decathlon ofc because who do you think she is she lives for this shit
then! there is this little shithead on the team PETER PARKER
who the fuck does this kid think he is
all these questions, acting like he’s sooo smart just because he happens to
know a lot of facts and is really good at physics and speaks spanish really
well and also happens to be really dorky and adorable and okay maybe he’s kind
of attractive too and maybe mj starts throwing herself more into academic
decathlon and possible CONSIDERS joining band but that’s ONLY BECAUSE PETER IS
A SHITHEAD AND SHE NEEDS TO SHOW HIM HE ISN’T THE ONLY TALENTED ONE OKAY
Oh, don’t be disgusting, we’re Time Lords, not animals. Try, nano-brain, to rise above the reproductive frenzy of your noisy little food chain, and contemplate friendship. A friendship older than your civilization and infinitely more complex.
I hope my boyfriend wasn't too mean to you...He can be very mean sometimes. Except to me, of course, because he loves me so much.
*makes out with Doctor against wall*
My heart is maintained by the Doctor.
And both of them yours.
Oh Clara, Clara, Clara. You know, I should shoot you in a jealous rage, now wouldn't that be sexy?
Stop shouting, love....
Ask me! Come on, you know you want to. You want to know what my plan is. You'll be surprised. I've got a gift for you. You know, I've been up and down your timeline, meeting all those silly people who died to keep you alive. And you know what I worked out? What you really need?...To know that you're just like me!
I need you to know we're not so different. I need my friend back. Every battle, every war, every invasion. From now on, you decide the outcome.
We can, we can go together [to Gallifrey], just you and me. Just like the old days.
You'd be clapped in irons.
If you like.
Since when do you care about the Doctor?
Doctor, listen to me. I know traps. Traps are my flirting. This is a trap.
Listen to that. The Doctor without hope. Nobody is safe now.
The Doctor gave it to me when my daughter....
*travels through a Dalek infested sewer and city in heels while keeping his pet safe* No. No, no, no, no. Doctor, what have you done? *runs towards danger to save the Doctor from his own stupidity*
*laughs at the Doctor's sarcastic comeback like a schoolgirl with a massive crush*
In a way, this is why I gave her to you in the first place. To make you see. The friend inside the enemy, the enemy inside the friend...Everyone's a bit of both, everyone's a hybrid.
Please, I'll do anything. Just let me live...I'll be good, I promise. I'll turn, I'll turn good. Please. Teach me, teach me how to be good...I know I'm going to die. I have to say it, the truth. Without hope, without witness, without reward, I am your friend.
Of course she's not dead, she's a friend of mine. I may have fiddled with your wiring a little bit.
*stays in Vault for decades even though she could escape at any time*
C'est super. So, what have you got so far? *drapes herself across piano whilst encouraging the Doctor to puzzle out how to defeat the monks*
*cries* ...You didn't tell me about this bit.
I'm sorry, but this is good.
*peers shyly around console rotor*
Sure, that's fine...But Doctor, please tell me, really. Are you alright?
*cries* I don't even know why I'm crying. Why, why do I keep doing that now?
I don't know. Maybe you're trying to impress me.
Yes. Probably some devious plan, that sounds about right.
Well the alternative would be much worse.
The alternative is that this is for real and it's time for us to become friends again.
Do you think so? *Takes step forward. The Doctor steps back, then tentatively takes Missy's hands in his own. Missy gasps in surprise.*
I don't know. That's the trouble with hope. It's hard to resist. *Lets go of Missy's hands and walks away.*
i just have a lot of feelings about peter and mj so here we are. (part two can be found here)
peter is not looking forward to junior year
he somehow ended up signing up for like 3 different AP classes that he definitely did not remember signing up for
but being spiderman, he barely sleeps so his memory has been out of sorts lately
anyways so the first day of school rolls around and his first class is AP bio, and ned was his partner in regular bio but Ned is taking environmental science this year
and ned is peter’s only friend
so our spidey boy is without a lab partner, until michelle walks in right as the bell rings, drops her bag right next to Peter’s laptop on the lab counter, and begins reading catcher in the rye
she’s read it multiple times, just fyi
peter is shook
because he and michelle are friends now? i mean she’s caption of decathlon now that liz is gone and he’s sort of one of the best on the team and they are sort of partners there too
so peter rolls with it
and michelle ends up making AP bio fun, for example she and peter come up with names for everyone else in their class since they sit at the back of the room
flash is named: “dumbass”.
not original, but it works for them
AP bio is usually after lunch, and so often if there is a quick decathlon meeting during lunch, peter and michelle find themselves walking together
it’s not until peter realizes he’s low on webs that he realizes the problem
Michelle is sort of his ‘other ned’ if you will
basically, she never leaves him alone
and she doesn’t know he sneaks into the labs to make more webs
this is a situation, because how is peter supposed to distract her long enough to sneak into the chem labs?
cue ned the chair guy
peter gives ned one job, JUST ONE JOB, to keep michelle distracted during lunch so he can sneak into the chem lab, test out his new webs, and get out.
but the only thing ned can talk about is his new lego millennium falcon
and michelle is not into hearing ned talk about that for more than 5 minutes because he isn’t peter
so somehow she escapes and finds herself wandering around the halls when she realizes where the hell is peter?
eventually she finds herself downstairs and she hears a strange noise from a nearby door.
so she peeks into what looks like the chem lab and low and behold peter parker is shooting webs out of his hands
the bruises, the sudden disappearances, decathlon, why spiderman was in DC out of all places…
next thing peter knows, michelle is in front of him, and she’s pissed
like, REALLY pissed
peter doesn’t catch much of what she’s saying besides the occasional “you could be killed” or “NED knows and i DON’T?” or “is this the damn stark internship?”
and peter is staring with his mouth open because even though she just found out his deepest darkest secret in the most obvious place (did he learn nothing from the aunt may incident?) her eyes are a gorgeous shade of brown and she’s kind of adorable when she’s mad
but that’s not that point
it takes peter the rest of lunch period to calm her down and to convince her not to tell anyone, not that she would, but you never know
and it takes him even longer to reassure her that he is perfectly safe and that the suit is very, very, reliable
she demands to see it, and peter refuses because they’re in the damn chem lab for god’s sake
eventually they head to AP bio, and Michelle doesn’t ask anymore questions. In fact, she doesn’t ask anymore questions for a while
peter thinks she forgot, or that she doesn’t care that much, but then a major accident happens in downtown in the middle of the night a few days later and spiderman is seen pulling people from a burning building, but no one saw spiderman come out before it collapsed.
he skips school the next day because he’s “sick” and ned brings him his homework. he doesn’t ask about michelle, because he thinks that if she really doesn’t care after all, it’s better that he doesn’t know
he’s proven wrong – because when he does go back to school and walks into AP bio, Michelle launches herself into his arms in front of the whole class.
and while afterwords she makes some joke about how peter saved their project that isn’t due until the end of the semester, peter starts to feel butterflies in his stomach.
