rescue romance.

They saved you. It doesn't matter what from - captivity, danger, an unwanted "relationship," certain destruction - and, in the end, it doesn't even matter if they rescued you on purpose or if you were freed on accident, as an extension of what they do, as a duty, because you're a commodity, or just to screw with whoever had you in their clutches (the enemy of my enemy, and all that). A part of you feels like you owe them, despite it all.

But soon enough, "feelings" become the problem. Like some kind of twisted yet somehow more positive version of Stockholm syndrome, your heart opens, you warm up, your emotions muddle...still, do they mirror you, or are is this another way for you to be hurt?

[Voicetesting, and I just couldn't resist! We can do action brackets too, if you prefer.]

He was going to be late... Again.

MJ was definitely going to kill him, or at least break up with him. Were they even technically dating yet? Sure, this was the third or fourth time they've made plans to hang out together, but Peter would be lying if he said that the redheaded guy wasn't hard to read sometimes. It kind of felt like they were dating, and there were definitely times when they'd gotten close, but MJ was kind of flirty all the time, and Peter was more than a little clueless in the relationship department still, at least in whether or not they're actually in one yet.

Not like it matters because this will be the third time that he'd show up late for their date... On top of the one time he'd unintentionally stood him up at the movies. He was definitely getting broken up with after this. Typical Parker luck... Or just typical Peter Parker.

Or maybe he'd catch a lucky break for once. Not that noticing a some random gang thugs cornering a guy in an alley as he swung overhead to try to make up some time was 'lucky', but the familiar shock of red hair and the would be victim's voice in the distance was all too familiar to him by now. He doesn't even have to think about it as he drops down from the rooftop and sweeps the legs out from under two of the thugs, then quickly webs the third one up against the wall. The fight was over in seconds, and once the bad guys are all wrapped up for the cops, Spider-Man is walking over to MJ, making sure he's okay.

"We really need to stop meeting like this, Mr. Watson," He says, grinning underneath the mask because this was at least the second time he's rescued the guy. Peter might be striking out, but at least MJ could count on Spider-Man to be on time.
