Hello and welcome to the sequel of 'One Step Ahead' :D It plays good six weeks after what happened in Avengers and goes straight to The Amazing Spider Man. I saw the movie and and fell in love with Peter Parker.
If you haven't read 'One Step Ahead' yet, I recommend to read it, otherwise some things may be confusing, if you don't feel like reading it, then feel free to ask, I'll try my best to explain everything.
Basically it's about my OC Jackie Walker, how she somehow ended up in the Marvel universe et cetera. Go figure.
Oh yeah, and the Avengers are making an appearance in this story too, for I don't know, more development in their relationship to Jackie maybe? Anyway, I didn't put it into the cross over section because well, I can :P
Please note that English isn't my first language, therefor there will be grammar and spelling mistakes.
Disclaimer: I own nothing except my OC Jackie Walker
P.S.: I beat Dream Drop Distance with 26 hours playtime ... xD
Sunny Weather With A Sudden Visit From The Clouds
„Five, four, three, two, one. Ready or not, here I come... Dad! Dad!"
"You're gonna stay with your Aunt May and Uncle Ben for a little while."
"I wanna go with you."
Lately I've dev eloped the habit to describe things by using the weather. I blame it on that storm six weeks ago. Well, I think it was six weeks ago, but honestly, it was during summer vacation and I don't keep track of time during those holy eight weeks of no school.
My name is Jacqueline Walker, short Jackie. Call me by my full name (plus middle name) and you're dead.
Six weeks ago, my life got turned upside down.
Six weeks ago, I had the time of my life.
Six weeks ago, I was basically pulled into a movie. 'Avengers' to be more precisely. At first I thought it was going to be the usual self-insert stories: Pulled into a movie, meets the heroes, few ups and downs, falls in love with their favorite character, get married and live happily ever after.
Well, the first three statements were true, after that it was just bullshit. I didn't fall for anyone, no one fell for me (and strangely I'm really glad about that), and I – almost- have my old life back. Except that I'm stuck in this movie universe for the rest of my pitiful short life.
By the way, Steve Rogers aka Captain America is my neighbor. Just wanted to mention that and rub it into some fangirls faces. Hehehehe.
Like I said, six weeks ago I got pulled into the movie 'Avengers'.
Or so I thought. Well, turns out I actually got pulled into the whole Marvel universe. It was clear when a week ago Nick Fury sauntered into my home and handed me files from a certain Richard Parker. Obvious that it was Spider-Man's daddy. Eye Patch wanted to get some information SHIELD may didn't have through me, because of this whole I'm-from-another-dimension/universe-and-I-know-almost-everything-that-you-don't-know-thing. To be honest, I wasn't a big help because I didn't really know anything about Spider-Man's old man.
"Miss, your photos are all developed." A voice suddenly said, interrupting my train of thought.
Right now I'm in a photo shop to develop the photos Steve took during one of our trips through New York City. I promised him to do that since he's too busy with training or something like that. I barely get to see him these days. Makes me wonder if he's still alive.
"Thanks." I said, took the envelope with the photos, paid the price and stepped out of the shop.
On my way back home I took out the photos and carefully looked through them. Most of them are from old buildings that are still from the Second World War time.
You know how people always say that you shouldn't read or look at anything while walking and always keep your eyes open? Yeah, I should have listened to them. The next thing I knew was that I bumped into some guy on a skateboard.
"Oh fuck!" I yelled and dropped the photos. They were all scattered on the ground. Next to it was a camera. It didn't belong to me, so I assumed it belongs to my bumper.
I quickly kneeled down and collected the photos, while the guy was still sitting on the ground. He flew down from his skateboard due to the small impact.
"I'm sorry; I wasn't watching where I was going!" I apologized, putting the photos back into the envelope, picked up the camera and turned to the guy. He rubbed his neck, wincing slightly.
I held out a hand, which he took gratefully and helped him up. The boy stood good a head taller than me, but then again I'm not exactly the tallest here. He had short brown hair, that looked pretty much unkempt, and brown eyes. Somehow his face looked really familiar, but I couldn't quite put my fingers on from where…
"Thanks." He muttered under his breath.
I realized that I still had his camera. I took a closer look on it, and saw that there was his name written on it, along with an address. Peter Parker.
Hang on a sec.
"Peter Parker?!" I half shouted half wondered and then looked back at the guy, whose face looked slightly worried at my sudden outburst.
"You are Peter Parker?" I asked, having a hard time believing it "Holy shit, when did you become so attractive?"
"Uh, excuse me?" Peter Parker said, turning a bit red "Do I know you?"
It took me a small moment to process what I said, and then afterwards I just wished the ground below me would open up and I would fall down. Why does my tongue always have to be quicker than my brain? I swear someday it's going to be a death to me.
"I uh, have to go now!" I stuttered out and then quickly dashed off, not even looking back once. I think I heard him shouting 'Wait!', but I was too embarrassed to turn back, and when I was sure I was far away now I realized why he shouted after me.
I still had his camera.
Oh great. I really don't want to go back now just to give him his stupid camera back. Eh, I'll just give it back to Peter some time later. When I figured out where he lives and which school he attends.
I opened the door to my apartment and took off my shoes. While doing that, my mind wandered back to Peter Parker. Now, I admit that I have a short time memory, but I'm sure that Peter Parker had a different face. Unless… Oh right, I forgot, there was going to be a new Spider-Man movie out. Sadly I won't be able to watch it now since I'm basically living in that universe. And I guess that guy is the new Spider-Man. No wonder he seemed so familiar. Did he already get bitten by a spider?
I just realized that I somehow have the talent to meet new interesting people by bumping into them. Just like that time when I bumped into Steve Rogers and thought he was Chris Evans. And the next day I bumped into him again. And then shit happens.
Well, I have the feeling that this time shit is going to happen again. Me bumping into Peter Parker just proved my point. And now that I have his camera just means I should get my ass out of here and meet him again. Well, I could just keep it, but that would be thievery and with my luck I might just bump into him somehow again if I decided to get out of his way.
I let out a sigh and slumped down into my couch. Taking a closer look at the camera, I carefully inspected every inch of it. On the downside, there was a small white piece of paper sticking on it.
'Property of Peter Parker, Midtown Science High School'.
If I was Peter, I would have written my home address down, not my school. Ah well, at least I know where to start to look for him.
"Agent, what is Jacqueline Walker doing?"
"She went into a photo shop and let some photos developed, Director."
"She then bumped into a boy. It seems like she knew who he was, but the boy doesn't know her."
"Who is that boy?"
"Peter Parker? Son of Richard Parker?"
"… Keep watching her. I have a feeling that this is going to turn out to be very interesting. Perhaps Walker can still get us information."
"Understood, Director Fury."
So yeah, that's the first chapter, not much to say about it :P
review please :)
