    Summary

    Everything feels easier with MJ these days. When he’s looking at her, he can be thinking just about her, not any of the other stresses that wait around every corner. She’s all-consuming, endlessly attention-grabbing. Her hair and her smile and the way she leans over her notebooks, scribbles away something he’s sure is completely unrelated to class, that he gets to guess about before she shows him over lunch. 

    He can focus entirely on hypothesizing about her thought process, brainstorming ways he can make her laugh when they walk out of class together, even though she’ll inevitably be funnier than him in a single sentence or with a single look. 

    or, 5 times Peter stares at MJ and 1 time he doesn't look away

    Summary

    “You don’t remember anything?” A fingertip traces the outside of Carol’s wrist and Maria sighs when Carol immediately turns her body into her, feeling a pull she doesn’t understand, but can’t bring herself to fight.

    “I see flashes-- little moments…” She takes a moment to bask in the comfort of their closeness, the way Maria’s hand finds the small of her back and how the simple touch sets her skin ablaze. “But I can’t tell what’s real.”
