Heyo! You're lookin' at (well, technically readin') another great writer who's OBSESSED with the Ultimate Spider Man! I LOVE THAT SHOW!
As you can tell…
Anyway xP I decided to write my own fanfic, since ideas have been burning in the back of my head for like, ever.
I. Ship. Spidey. With. White Tiger. So. HARD. This is so new to me, because I've always been a hardcore Peter/MJ shipper! (Growing up with the Spider Man films, uh der! Tobey Maguire and Kirsten Dunst should've married like FORREAL.)
But in this series, I'm all for Peter and Ava (and have a soft spot for Sam and Mary Jane, don't judge me).
Enough of my rambling! Read on!
DISCLAIMER: I do not own Ultimate Spider Man, or the characters-Marvel does. And Stan Lee. xP I do however own an OC or two...maybe three-but what author doesn't? xP
Ava watched with rising suspicion as Harry cornered Mary Jane on the way to lunch. Ever since he 'swore his vengeance' on Spider Man, he's been acting, well...off. Like Venom was still in him.
Either that, or he's on his man period, Ava thought with a roll of her eyes. Harry suddenly advanced on Mary Jane, causing the redhead's back to bump against the lockers, and from the way her face looked, she was terrified. Or at least, close to that emotion.
Even though Mary Jane was Parker's best friend and not hers, that didn't mean that she didn't care. But of course, she couldn't do anything about it like the way she'd want to.
Ava jumped, then her face scrunched up in a scowl. "You sneak up on me like that again, Parker, and you'll have toes for teeth."
Peter held up his hands innocently.
"Ha!" Sam said, now coming up beside the two with Danny and Luke. "She told you, Parker!"
Peter shot Sam an annoyed look. "Keep it up, and you're next, Bucket Head!"
The two turned on each other with glares, steam blowing out of their ears.
Up until Danny intervened, placing a hand on each of their shoulders and said, "Easy, dudes. Violence never solves anything..."
"Tell that to the British," Sam grumbled, shrugging Danny's hand off.
"Anyway," Luke said, getting everyone to pay attention to the subject at hand. "What's up with Osborn?"
Sam finally noticed, and his temper started to rise again, "Looks like someone forgot to take his chill pill this morning." He looked at Peter. "What do you know?"
"What do you mean?"
"We're not idiots." Ava crossed her arms. "Harry's your best friend. You should know."
"Honestly?" Peter scratched the back of his head. "I don't..." His gaze flickered back to his two best friends. Okay. This isn't Harry. This isn't him at all!
For Sam, Web Head was taking too long. "I say we go see what's up!"
He started down the hallway with a mischievious look on his face and-completely ignoring the protesting spider who was apparently following him-marched right up to Harry and MJ.
"What the hell is taking you so long to decide?!" Harry growled. "How much time do you need?! Either you're with me or against me!"
"I'm sorry!" Mary Jane was feeling more uneasy by the second; this wasn't the Harry she knew and loved. One of her best friends.
"Oh, so you're sorry now?"
Mary Jane's eyes narrowed a little. "Yeah! Excuse me if I don't want to join you in your little plan to seek revenge on Spider-"
"Hey, hey, hey!" Sam squeezed himself in the free space, making Harry take a few steps back with arched eyebrows. Sam crossed his arms, his side brushing against Mary Jane. "How goes it, Osborn? What'cha been up to, hmm?" He smiled cockily.
Mary Jane sighed in relief, just happy that Sam and Peter swooped in for the save.
"Smile, Harry! It's Friday!" Peter patted Harry on the back. "Who doesn't like Fridays?"
"Yeah, I know, right?" Sam said next. "Even after Tuesday, the week says WTF!"
Mary Jane giggled, but Harry glowered in her direction.
"Funny," Harry replied, still looking at Mary Jane.
"Uh...so..." Peter was saying just as Harry started to walk off. "See you, um, later, Harry?"
"Yeah. Sure." Harry turned his head, giving a forced little smile in Peter's direction, then his eyes turned to slits at Mary Jane. Seeing this exchange, Peter and Sam simutaneously moved themselves in front of MJ. "Later."
It was like he was speaking to her.
And this made Mary Jane shudder.
"Ugh, why?!" Ava demanded as her best guyfriends pushed her towards Mary Jane, who was sitting by herself and pushing her steak around her tray with her fork.
"Because you need some girl friends!" Sam barked.
"Friendship is very valueable," Danny said calmly. "You need a female companion..."
"D's right, Ava. Bet you get tired of hangin' with us all the time, right?" Luke added. "We all live together now! And the only other female you know is Peter's aunt. No offense, but she doesn't count."
Ava whirled on them. "Look. I don't need a new girl friend, and I'm perfectly capable of-"
"Please, Ava?" Peter begged, taking the bait and standing in front of her. "I normally don't ask you for anything, but this really is important. And MJ's important to me-I don't want anything to happen to her because of Harry."
Peter had struck a small nerve, pulling at Ava's heartstrings and getting a fluttery feeling in her stomach. "She's that important, huh? You like her or something?"
"What? No! It's not like that!" Peter said, lightly blushing in embarrassment. Luke and Danny exchanged glances, wondering if it would be a good time to leave, but Sam was fighting himself from bursting out into laughter.
"Sounds like someone's jealous!" Sam said, and it was Ava's turn to not only blush but glare in Sam's direction.
"I-I mean we kissed once when we were little-'cause we were 'getting serious'," Peter was rambling, "but since then, she's been like the sister I never had and-"
"Fine!" Ava interjected, and Peter shut up. "I'll..." She gritted her teeth. "I'll go along with whatever you're planning."
"Thanks, you're the best...-Wait. What makes you think we're planning something?" Peter asked.
"Why else would Danny and Luke bolt for the door?" Ava arched an eyebrow.
Peter looked around himself, bewildered that Sam was still remaining (to watch the Peter and Ava Show of course). "Wh-?"
"Catch ya on the flipside, Parker!" Sam said, and then he ran out the cafeteria.
Peter sighed. "Dang."
Ava smiled, her tone kinder when she then said, "I guess having a girl friend won't be so bad. Despite your idiocy, I know you guys are looking out for me. So...thanks."
Peter smiled sheepishly at her. "No problem." He put his hand on her shoulder. "We always got your back."
And with that, he sprinted for the exit; Ava watched him leave, her hand coming over the spot where he had touched her.
Her skin tingled.
Ava shook her head quickly. You're over thinking it, Ava, she told herself as she walked over to Mary Jane's table, tray in hand.
Mary Jane looked up, and she smiled. "Hey. Ava, right?"
Ava nodded. "Um, yeah. Mind if I sit with you?"
Mary Jane's face brightened. "Sure! Go ahead!"
Ava let out a breath that she had been apparently holding, and then she sat down across from the redhead. Trying to sound casual, she said, "Soo...what's Osborn's ordeal?"
"I don't know..." Mary Jane said, resting her cheek in her palm. "I heard he's out for Spider-Man, and he expects me to..." Her head snapped up, and she blinked rapidly. "Nevermind. Forget I said anything. Let's talk on lighter subjects!"
"Um, okay..." Ava was disappointed for lack of info. Hell, she wasn't complaining. Mary Jane wasn't the only one who had secrets. "Is..your hair, like...naturally that red? Or did you dye it?"
Mary Jane giggled. "Actually, despite what people think, I was born with red velvet hair-and I love it."
Ava smiled. "Cool."
"What about you? I was always curious about your ethnicity..."
"Hispanic," Ava answered. "But I think I also have some African American somewhere in the family tree."
"Awesome, you speak Spanish?"
Ava nodded. "But," she smirked, "I normally use it when I get annoyed at the boys, so they never know what I'm saying."
"Except for Sam?" Mary Jane guessed.
Ava's smirk grew. "Except for Sam."
The two giggled.
Ava heard footsteps come up from behind her just as MJ looked over her shoulder. Two timid looking girls, one more than the other, looked to be heading in their direction. Both were slim and pretty good looking; one was a little taller, and had long strawberry blonde hair, hazel eyes, and a small amount of freckles along her cheeks and nose. Her glasses were black and rectangular. The other was shorter and darker in personality; she had paler skin, long black hair, and blue eyes. Flash came by, knocking their books down, and his friends laughed as the strawberry blonde bent down to push her glasses on her face. The raven haired girl sighed and helped her up.
"Hey, Flash! Leave them alone!" Mary Jane said, crossing her arms. Flash snorted and ignored her. "You guys okay?" she asked the two girls, who looked up at her in alarm as if they were thinking, Is she talking to us? MJ nodded, beckoning them over. The two girls exchanged glances before walking over. "Don't worry about Flash. He's a jerk."
"We know," said the strawberry blonde with a little smile. "I'm Jessica. Jessica Jones." She looked at her friend.
"Skylar Grey," she said.
Mary Jane smiled back. "Cool, like the singer! I'm Mary Jane Watson, and this is my friend Ava." She gestured in Ava's direction. Ava waved, and Jessica and Skylar waved back. "Wanna sit with us?"
Great, Ava thought.
"Sure," Jessica replied, taking the empty seat next to Mary Jane, and Skylar sat next to Ava.
Mary Jane was just happy that she made new friends, quickly.
That way, surrounding myself with friends will keep Harry away from me...
1 OC so far! Whoot!
There shouldn't be any more that's a part of the major plot. Jessica Jones is actually a real Marvel character, otherwise known as Power Woman-or Jewel before that (ahem, ahem). Other than that, this story is planning on having a lot of girl power!
For what I have in store for MJ, I'm just letting you guys know that she's not going to be as much of a damsel in distress like she always is. Hint, hint.
Review and tell me what ya think!
