Not good at expressing my feelings here, so please bear with me.
With the current status-quo, with Dr Octopus taking over Peters life. I feel I need to say something.
Not with the fact that he took over Peter's life, but the fact that the relationship that will more than likely happen between him and Mary Jane. For a long time I have followed her story through out Amazing spider-man and other issues, as close as I follow Peter's exploits. And to see a relationship unfolding between the two really make me feel nauseous when ever I think about, so much so I have to lie down and remind myself that this is a story and nothing else, I can tell you it's been difficult.
Especially seeing this (SSM#2)
And to top if off, I can't help thinking of what will happen to her emotionally, when she eventually does find out it was not Peter but Dr Octopus she was with. I believe it would be devastating for her and even if Peter does return, that trust and love she once had for him will be shattered and more than likely never recover. Because all Peter will be is as a reminder of what she did. In short it could very well mean the end of the Peter & Mary relationship forever, not even as friends.
I know it's irrational having these feeling & reactions over a fictional character, but I can't seem to help it. I guess for a long time (YEARS), since I was 8, Peter Parker and Mary Jane have been big part of my life, so much so, I have began treating them like real people and to have this happen to them really feels like I was just kicked it stomach and it will be a long time before I recover.
So I was wondering if anyone out there feels the same as I do, and would like to express their feelings on it.
