hello, i hope you are having a good day! i don't think i've gushed about your spidey fics recently, which is just unacceptable. i reread a couple of them this week and i was reminded of how good they are. like i think i've read every spiderman fic on the internet twice and i'm sort of done with most of them after the second reading, but i think i've read all of yours like 5+ times because they just never get old. your writing is just *clenches fist* so freakin good
oh my gosh, thank you so much!! i’m glad people still read and enjoy some of my older stuff
I will never pity you, Dickface. I am the perpetual family disappointment, I pity no one.
Oh come on, you think you're the family disappointment?
Well it sure as hell ain't you, golden boy!
We'll see about that. Bruce!
Who is the family disappointment?
Shut up shut up shut uuuupppp!
I cannot be the family disappointment because I am not a part of this family!
I don't even go here!
You're here all the time--
As your personal Kimmy Gibbler! Not a sister!
[to Bruce] I can't believe you. I CANNOT believe you! Say it, Bruce, swear to God, SAY IT and I will slap you again!
I AM NOT THE FAMILY DISAPPOINTMENT!
You know who is, Bruce? You. YOU ARE THE FAMILY DISAPPOINTMENT.
You haven't done half the crap you should and YEAH I'm pulling out receipts because I INVENTED fake dying and when I got back no one was nice to me SO YOU DON'T GET ANY FREEBIES!
I'm leaving! Tell Cass I'm not talking to any of you and I broke up with Tim--
How is this my fault?!
--and that I'll be at Gina's on 5th for smoothies because SOME of us keep our promises and don't just go 'hey I'm back from the dead get out of my cave even though I'm a loser who got lost in time like a loser' which, like, PATHETIC
[wads up leftover receipt from her purse and throws it at Bruce] BYE FAMILY DISAPPOINTMENT
No matter how many times they’re done, there are a few tropes I’ll read 100 times with the same ship, by 100 different authors.
Here are just a few of those tropes:
1. Fake Dating AU.
Whether it’s a short exchange with a stranger because there’s a creep who won’t stop hitting on them, or a fully planned out, year-long con to fool their family, I can never get enough of these.
2. Trapped in A Small Space Together
Freezing to death in an engine room. Hiding together in a closet to avoid being killed. Locked in a room, running out of air.
No matter the context, this one always makes my day, especially if one of the people trapped isn’t usually big on physical contact.
3. Taking Care of Children Together
Innocent little kids have a way of bringing out the soft side of even the fiercest characters.
4. Unnaturally Truthful
Truth serums, an excess of pain meds, and outside threats are just a few of the ways my beloved ships can be forced to admit things they never would under normal circumstances.
5. Amnesia/Forgetting The Other
Sometimes they hit their head. Sometimes they were brainwashed. Sometimes they died and came back to life.
Whatever the reason, one doesn’t know the other, and the other has to faithfully stick by them, and try to help them remember. (Or start from scratch, befriending them and falling in love all over again.)
6. Grumpy, Distant Characters Turning Into Human Puppies Around That Special Someone
This requires no explanation, I believe.
7. Everyone Knows One Loves The Other
Except, of course, the other.
8. First Kiss Forgotten
Maybe someone was under mind control when it happened, or maybe they just had a bit too much to drink, but Person A remembers Person B kissing them, and Person B has no idea it happened. (Or DO THEY?)
