Kissing Scars

The Kissing Scars Meme
Despite the romanticism surrounding the emotion, it can be difficult to be loved completely — not just the beautiful parts of us, but also the sad parts, the injured parts, the hidden and less-than-pleasant parts. There are marks on us, both physical and mental, that we'd often rather forget. The mental ones can just be easier to hide. As for physical scars, they can be off of our minds some of the time, but that's exceedingly hard to do in more intimate, close moments.

Whether it's to your dismay or otherwise, your partner is not looking away and ignoring your scars. To the contrary, they're providing attention in a way most heavily associated with tenderness: kissing. It may be an accidental slip off target, or they may be trying to show you that what you've done and who you've been don't matter to them now.

Does the gesture touch you? Make the walls come up once again because of the memories that are dredged from somewhere you'd rather no go? A mixture of both?

The wound has long closed, yet the pains remain; these days, however, there's someone who may be willing to help you bear it.

[The fat lady already sang, my friend. Canon as fuck.]

Peter's not sure when kissing masked vigilantes became his life, but, well, here he is. It started out as a joke, which escalated into a really bad game of gay chicken. Peter should have known not to engage in that kind of thing with Deadpool, despite the fact that their joking around had sort of grown on him. What part of him ever thought he could win?

It doesn't matter now, anyway. They may or may not have a...sort of thing. Peter doesn't know what to call it. Crime-fighting-make-out-sesh doesn't have a real ring to it. Friends-with-ass-kicking benefits? Look, just don't ask him. He honestly doesn't know.

So yeah. Business as usual. It's like three in the morning, they're on a rooftop making out because that's A Thing They Do Now, when Peter's mouth drifts a little lower, to the exposed part of Deadpool's neck. It's probably not a good sign that neither of them have actually taken off their masks completely yet. Hell, Peter's not even on a first name basis with the guy. To say Peter has attachment issues is something of an understatement (and yet, in some part of his brain, he knows he's already fucked).

Hey, what can he say? He just exudes an aura of Poor Life Choices, like some kind of gravitational force or...fuck it, he's not a scientist! Talk to Goattee Boy if you want to nerd out about that stuff.

Nerd out about Star Wars, though, and he's your 'Pool.

Or, you know, a little of the rooftop tonsil-hockey. He was down with that, too.

And hey, the masks just make it sexier. Like...mysterious secret identity kinky stuff. OOOOOORRRR someone's not really feeling like whipping off the mask for the whole ugly monty.

"Whooofff." Yeah, that's the kind of keen wit and eloquence you can expect when you put warm lips against his bare skin.

They're both idiots, that's what should really be gleaned from this whole damn thing. Peter snorts a little at the noise Deadpool makes, and he smiles against his skin, lips working their way down to the seam of his suit. They didn't have a whole lot there - just above the collarbone to the bridge of their noses, but maybe Peter felt like exploring a little.

Of all the things he's ever done in the Spiderman suit - all the laws he's broken as a vigilante fighting for the little guy - this is what gives him the weirdest rush.

"You okay up there, Pool?" Peter murmurs, tilting his head to trail his mouth back up, along Deadpool's jaw. If the scars bother him, it certainly isn't showing.

Well, if they're both idiots, Wade's a bigger one, because a) he is and b) he is a competitive jerk like that.

So there.

"Mwuh? Me? Good. I'm...yeah." Incoherent. That's what he was. Incoherent.

And also a little frisky. And getting friskier. He tips his chin down to catch the other's mouth with his, dropping back to one elbow, his other curling around a shoulder.

Peter will give him that one. All the time they've spent together so far - Peter's not stupid. He's learned. But let it not be said they weren't equally able to rile the other up and goad them into even stupider shit.


"Yeah?" Peter chuckles quietly, clearly not believing Deadpool but hey, if he wanted to pretend, Peter certainly wasn't going to stop him. He leans into the touch, humming when Deadpool catches his lips again. Peter's hand wanders, down Wade's chest, gloved fingertips trailing over the seams of his suit. "You...you sure?"
