So, browsing through some images of my favorite Marvel couple, a few fave me an idea or two. Though before I begin, let's throw down some rules:
1. You DON'T need to know EVERYTHING about either Mary Jane or Spider-Man to do these ideas. They're AU so we could do what ever we want for story elements and plot lines.
2. If you believe the story arc "One More Day" was good and that it was necessary, I've got a few words for you
. (If you haven't read it then no harm no foul)
3. Please be somewhat literate. I'm not asking for Shakespeare, Thoreau or McCarthy here. Just please be able to write detailed responses that give good details and can give me something to write back, as well as decent grammar. (Is that asking too much?)
4. If you have some plot ideas in mind, don't be afraid to share them. I love partner input, it helps craft a story that allows both of us to enjoy it. Also it'd be great to hear some opinions on story ideas.
5. For all of these plots, I will be playing as Peter/ Spidey. I'm strictly looking for FEMALES to play as MJ.
Good evening comic readers and true believers! Your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man here, comin' at you with a request:
So searching through some Spidey and MJ pics, I found these pics: 1
Thess pic has given me a delightful idea!!:Peter, in trouble?!Back in Black!
I apologize for bombarding you with that long list, but did it get my point across? I'd like to think it did. So, if you stuck with me this far and at least looked at a fraction of the images on the list, then I think you can tell where I want to go with this.
For those who don't then I'll explain. I'm looking to do one of two scenarios:
Scenario #1- A reality where Mary Jane gets the spider powers and not Peter. Their relationship would still exist but instead of Peter swinging off, it would be MJ.
Scenario #2- Peter still has the powers, but he either gives gear to MJ to come help him fight crime (husband and wife duo? Hell yeah!), or she gets them some other way and heroes around in secret until Peter finds out and they become a duo.
Scenario #3 - So, The Amazing Spider-Man came out awhile ago and I saw it. I enjoyed it, being an avid comic the multiple plot lines were fine for me, but to each their own.
Now the ending is pretty much what anyone who knows Spider-Man was coming. So, if you don't know Peter's history and haven't seen the movie: SPOILER ALERT
So Gwen dies when Peter tries to save her from falling the height of a clock tower. I would have preferred the bridge scenario like in issue #121, but the clock tower did provide some nice cinematography. Now that Gwen is dead, Peter stopped being Spider-Man, losing his drive until he heard Gwen's graduation speech some months after her death. It put the fire back in him and he was back to web slinging.
So I would like to find a partner interested in picking up where the film left off and move on to the next chapter in Peter's life, and that would be one Mary-Jane Watson. The idea could be this:
Peter is working hard to help Aunt May pay for his tuition at Empire State University. Not really ready to put himself back out on the dating scene, he sticks to his classes, his job, and his other job. Aunt May is worried that Peter is running himself ragged and needs a break. Luckily she was home from one of her shifts at the hospital when she met their new neighbors, Anna and her niece Mary-Jane. Mary-Jane seemed like a bright and happy young girl. Though Anna told May of her worry for the girl. Feeling the same as Anna the two begin to try and set the two up. Mary-Jane is interested in meeting Peter from hearing the things that Aunt May had to say. Peter, however, is too busy. May works until she finally pins him down at home with some bogus task she needed help with. May then finally reveals the true intentions and then we get this wonderful and iconic scene
. From there the story can go in so many directions. With the Sinister Six being revealed, and Harry as the Goblin, so many things we could do.
Plot #4- This would be inspired by the Original Sin story line. What if Peter wasn't the only one bitten by the spider that day? What if a Ms. Mary Jane Watson was near Peter when the spider bitten, and in its very last act, the spider was able to bite one more person: Mary Jane. This idea can have a lot of room to play. We can have to where MJ's powers develop later than Peter's, or she hides them until Peter tells her that he's Spider-Man, or a lot of other ways. If you have some input for this one then feel free to share.
Do I have any specific plot line or arch I want to follow? Not yet, but I'm really hoping that's where my partner would come in. I would love to story craft with someone.
So, interested? If so, PM me or post here please.
Thanks for your time, have a good day.
