[Mary Jane is out of frame, in the bathroom, while Peter lays in bed]
Mary Jane: Peeeter—
Peter: Yes, pookums?
Mary Jane: — remember what you said earlier about me in lingerie?
Peter: Actually, I’ve been thinking about it quite a bit over the last few minutes.
Mary Jane: Well, is this what you had in mind? [MJ emerges wearing pajamas that cover her completely from the neck down]
Peter: Grroowrr! Red, you’d look good wearing just about anything — including me!
Peter [narrating]: She laughs. She’s got this deep, throaty laugh. To me, it sounds as light as bird chirping…
(again, if anyone knows the source for this, i’d love it if you could share!)
I love this entire scene for so many reasons and maybe I’ll go through those reasons in another post but here I’ll keep it short. First I love how it feels very down to earth- we can tell by their living environment that they’re working class kids. MJ’s ashamed of and embarrassed about the chaos and the fighting going on at her house. She’s at her lowest emotionally but Peter lifts her up by believing in her and her future. She feels invigorated by him and she sees him in a new light. With her remark on how he’s taller than he looks, we know her perception of him has changed, and she really acknowledges him for the first time. She wants him to stand up straight so that the way that he carries himself will correspond with what she now sees in him, with what she knows he is and can be. She believes in him like he believes in her.
And people say MJ’s superficial!
As people have noted before about this franchise before, we saw a female character’s whose choices and aspirations were encouraged and respected, but here we also see it going both ways. Here we have the two leads genuinely wishing to see each other reach their potential, and not necessarily for any romantic reason! They’re both very much aware of their socio-economic status and their standing amongst their peers, they swim in different social circles, and their personalities are rather different, but in that moment (no, they did not swear they were infinite) none of that matters, because all they can see is the best in one another. They’re two souls searching for their purpose in the world and they kinda take care of each other.
Another scene that comes to mind is the diner scene, where Peter encounters MJ after she’s finishing her shift at the Moondance Diner, which she attempts to disguise as leaving an acting job. When her disguise is foiled, despite her embarrassment, he never thinks any less of her. He admires her tenacity, and encourages her to keep going. He doesn’t do it because he’s attempting to gain something from her, or even sheerly because of his love for her, but because he sees what’s great in her.
It shows that, no matter where you come from or who you are, you are somebody and you are special. And I know that that seems like kind of a simplistic moral, but I dunno, I just find it frickin’ magical.
Something unholy just appeared…
“okay, go home.”
Aw I hope he’ll at least make a little appearance in Avengers 2. :C
This is a WIP of something I’m currently doing : I wanted to try and draw a mini-comic, starting from a scene of Ninemilestogo’s Perpendicular. If you don’t know what Perpendicular is, I guess the best way to explain it is that this story turned me into a hardcore MJ/Peter shipper ?! Oh and it’s really well written. So really the problem was to find one scene amongst all the others, and well, since I’ve read chapter 23 I know this scene was meaningful enough -on both sides- to draw it !
So this is a scene from chapter 12, and I think it will take me about 3 pages to put it into pictures correctly ? it’s kind of fun to go through the process of turning text into drawings !
Oh my god. I was on the phone with my mother when I saw this, pretending to pay attention to what she was saying, and screamed at the top of my lungs. This is SPECTACULAR!! I can’t believe you DREW this, whoever you are, out in the universe, you incredibly talented human, you! This is actually how I pictured it in my head, it was almost terrifying to find this, like having my brain raped. This was one of my most favorite scenes to write, the fact that you took so much time and effort into drawing this makes me want to cry. I am so excited. Thank you so much for sharing this.
