Well, at least it's not glue.

o1. Put down your character ( name | series | any preferences).
o2. Those replying can pick / rng / ask Snape on the astral plane to choose one of the prompts below.
o3. You know what they say: birds of a feather get stuck in questionably legal situations together!

Hope you enjoy your enforced quality time, when you're both stuck -

o1 in traffic, after an atrocious argument.
o2. distracting this person, while your partner in comedy/crime organizes their surprise party, or slashes their car tyres.
o3. defending the base for the next vicious 42 min, until your cavalry to get here. Ladies, gentlemen: good luck.
o4. on a raft, idly drifting the way of the nearest deserted island, a surely cute shark in tow.
o5. in an air vent, after fruitlessly stalking this person, whom you thought to be a serial killer. They don't make friendly neighbours like they used to.
o6. trapped in a codependent relationship with your bed / pet / really domestic hobby, from which this person hopes to break you by way of alcohol a social intervention.
o7. in a waiting room, while you're hanging around for the results for a highly embarrassing disease test, and would really rather not run into anyone you kno - ...God damn it.
o8. trying to safely navigate through a department store, after carelessly forgetting you were out on your measly errand during Black Friday / the year's biggest one-day sale.
o9. standing guard in front of a bedroom with this nigh-stranger, so your Romeo-Juliet-like friends can finally get it on in behind closed doors, thematic noises included. Get the small talk going.
10. with your hair in one of their zippers. You pick which. Everyone else just points and laughs.
11. delivering some pretty terrible news to them.
12. with your hand in their mailbox, just as they're coming out of their house, or apartment.
13. doing the dishes, when you both forgot your wallets and can't foot the bill.
14. playing moral support for your friend, who's stuck in a magician's box, while said magician goes off to look for the key. And coffee. And dinner.
15. reading a manual on how to defuse a bomb, or a very sensitive alarm system. Tick-tack. No rush.
16. waiting for the movie reels to get changed over from an accidental porn showing, courtesy of teenagers in charge of the screening room. You're also out of popcorn.
17. under the only stone building around for miles in the middle of an acidic rain. And then you wonder whether pollution's really on the rise.
18. on the roof, after the ladder's snapped in half. Your neighbour's particularly irritable cat might also be out on the prowl.
19. in a bdsm swing. Look, no one's judging.
20. baby-sitting, pet-sitting, or car-sitting. Yes, that new Ferrari needs day and night surveillance.
21. in a lake, because this person caught you skinny-dipping and won't. Go. Away.
22. on the phone for an important interview / business conversation, while this person tries to distract you.
23. waiting to be ransomed, while in the actually quite loving care of especially incompetent criminals.
24. with your and this person's thumbs engaged in a dysfunctional Chinese finger trap.
25. waiting for them to make the Important Announcement they've been hinting at all week, while they taunt and tease you with it.

"Okay, I'd just like to point out - this is not my fault."

They may or may not be hanging upside down, trapped by Peter's own webbing. They'd both, apparently, traced the same drug ring to the same abandoned warehouse - which would have been fine, but neither of them knew the other was there. Hard to coordinate attacks when you didn't know about the other one.

So they ran into each other, and the disaster unfolded.

It would have been fine, except that the criminals had been expecting Matt, and had what Peter dubbed a 'high-class dog whistle'. It also, incidentally, worked on disorienting his spidey sense and - well, that's how the two of them ended up tangled in his webbing, dangling from the ceiling.

The criminals had long since escaped, but not even Peter could break out of the webbing. It would dissolve...eventually.

Honestly, it could be worse.

Hanging from the ceiling isn't the most terrible thing in the world to happen, Matt supposes. He could've died (ha), or the kid with him could've gotten hurt (what a quick heartbeat, a young voice) beyond the beating he already took. He's going to admit he doesn't know what the hell they're wrapped in--only that it feels tough, but that it was malleable at first. Like the webbing from a spider, but... different.

It could definitely be worse, Matt thinks as he dangles there. He's not going to try breaking out; any struggling, he can tell, will prove futile. He's not so much in the mood to make small talk, but he'll give the kid a break.

"Never said it was your fault," he finally answers, resisting the urge to sigh. No need to make things awkward. "But I could've really done without the... tough cocoon-making stuff."

It's not the worst fight he's ever lost. He didn't even have any broken bones! Talk about a miracle.

Peter didn't even bother struggling. It would only entangle the two of them further, because the more you struggling against it - at first, the webbing stretched, then constricted. "It was pre-emptive. I'm used to it." Half the stuff in the papers attributed to him had nothing to do with him.

"It's my webbing, sorry." Peter can feel his circulation slowing and he grimaces. "It'll dissolve, uh...in roughly an hour, give or take."

"An hour," Matt repeats.

It seems like some kind of cosmic joke--the universe trying to tell him something in the form of... whatever this is. At least he doesn't sound as irritated as he feels, he tells himself--at least he's keeping his cool. The kid seems like he has good intentions, and Matt's own striking need for perfectionism shouldn't get in the way of that.

But still.

"That's a lot of time to get to know a person."

"Sorry," It's the best Peter can offer, accompanied by a nervous chuckle.

Maybe it is. Maybe they were meant to meet. Lord knows neither of them really had any vigilante friends, and sometimes you needed someone to have your back. Honestly, Peter's just glad this guy isn't yelling at him.

"Guess we should start with names. Spiderman, at your service." Who was Peter to deny the guy his company? Especially - for a situation that isn't his fault - totally feels like his fault, haha whoops.

Spiderman. Webbing. Matt can't help it; the strangeness of the situation, the lightheadedness, and maybe his own frustrations turning into something else, all lead up to him laughing.

"Sorry," he says when it's all over. It's his turn to apologise, apparently. "No, it's--yeah, it's all right. I'm sure these things happen to you all the time, Spiderman."

There's still a smile on his mouth, at least. "Clever name. You're Spiderman and you shoot webs. That explains a lot."

But not enough, Matt's sure. Then again, it's not his place to ask.

"I'm... Daredevil, I guess."

Peter finds a wry smile creeping onto his face when Matt starts laughing at him. Alright, clearly he's not too angry, which is a relief. Hanging upside down for an hour probably isn't good for their health but, eh. Peter will heal; if they have to, they can probably get Matt into a more comfortable position.

"Getting caught in my own web? Once or twice. Usually without an audience, though."

"And climb walls. I'm all about transparency," Peter jokes, turning his head to look at 'Daredevil'. "What's the story behind that one?"

"The story behind Daredevil is the media. No surprising backstory here, sadly."

Thinking about it, though, Matt supposes there's some point, albeit a small one. "I jump off buildings a lot, though. That's pretty... Daredevil-y, if not suicidal."

Matt could do without the name, but it's grown on him in its own strange way. The world is filling up with strange people with strange names; he doesn't mind being another one to add to the pot.

"And I get tangled in webs with spider-men. Only daredevils do that."

"Well why are you out here, chasing these guys? Everybody's got something keeping them going."

"You jump off buildings? And you can't fly or anything?" There were plenty of super-powered types running around New York nowadays, though Peter couldn't say he'd had the distinct pleasure of meeting any as...deceptively casual as this. Still, Peter didn't have a whole lot of room to talk after jumping off a building with his webshooters, not even know if they'd work.

"You make a habit of this?" Peter teased, testing his foot against the webbing. It dug his heel, briefly, into Matt's calf, but didn't do much to the strength of the webbing. "Honestly, not to brag, but I don't think even the Hulk could get out of this stuff."
