  1. Summary

    The lipstick is a deliberate choice, a signal. Pink is her usual, and it means romance - vanilla and sweet. Black means he’ll be begging for mercy by the end of the night, and wearing the marks of the evening for at least a few days. Dark burgundy means the reverse: he’s in charge and Betty expects complete dominance from him.

    Red sits somewhere between pink and burgundy, and it means that tonight is all for him. (Except that it’s really for her, and he’s just along for the ride.)

    Summary

    But he never starts a conversation. With her, at least, though she can't really remember ever seeing Peter Parker start a conversation, except maybe with Ned but she doesn't count that.

    She's very observant, she notices these things, stacks them away, carefully adding and organizing information, fitting together tiny pieces of a cosmic puzzle. She's not obsessed with him. She just notices things.

    (Well, she is a little obsessed with him which is the root of this whole problem.)

    Summary

    Here’s the deep, dark secret about MJ aka Michelle Jones.

    She’s not cool and detached and snarky … she’s socially inept. Awkward. She's always a little out of step with others. She fits right into Midtown Tech - a school for gifted kids who are maybe a little different.
