this guy was watching the vmas with me and now he’s educating himself how precious is that
he keeps asking me all these questions about aspects of feminism and he’s like “so basically it’s about letting women do what they want without being judged for it” and I was like yea and he was like “oh okay that’s so simple why isn’t everyone a feminist” it’s precious

Presenting today’s feature:
Summary: Google politely tells her there are no poisonous spiders in Manhattan. Judging by her symptoms — fever, superstrength, newfound desire to shove herself into small dark spaces, and sudden reputation as a masked vigilante — Gwen would beg to differ. [Spider!Gwen AU.] Warnings for SPIDERS. LOTS OF SPIDERS. Blood and minor amounts of gore. Direct displays and discussion of racism, sexism, ableism, and police brutality. Offscreen references to rape, rape culture, gun violence, gun culture.
Why everyone should read it: Do you ever read those fics that are so good it kind of changes your life? You know, where the worldbuilding is fantastic, the characters are spot-on, the dialogue is clever, and the writing is totally solid? Where it takes all the stuff that bothers you about the source material and makes it a thousand times better? And not only that, but actively examines racism, sexism, rape culture, police brutality, etc. in a way that feel especially relevant considering real world events? Where you actually can no longer accept any other version of this fictional universe, even the original canon? And oh yeah, the word count is almost 80k?
This is that fic.
