Part 1 of 2 (Second part coming this week)
Pairing: Peter Parker x reader
Anon requested- can I get a one shot where the reader does the body positivity trend with the new megan thee stallion song and the reader is insecure about how ppl will react to it?? Most importantly how peter will react to it?? K thanks
Awww I love doing smol readers and where Peter’s actually the one that has it together lol sooo thanx for this
The TikTok is that new body positivity trend with that Megan Thee Stallion song. Couldn’t link it because tumblr acts weird about links but part 2 will have a video for Peter. Also reader will be 18 (senior in high school) cuz some people think minors shouldn’t participate in the trend lol
A/N: Either a motivation fairy hit me in the middle of the night or I’m really just that bored to the point where I had no choice but to get my motivation to write back. Either way I’m happy lol. Enjoy! Thanks to @yumings and @kelieah for helping me feel confident in this lol
Will definitely be a two parter🙂
Body oddy oddy oddy oddy oddy oddy oddy-
You’d finally finished editing the video.
It was a simple, short collage of all of your favorite selfies and pictures that showed off your body well. There was a new trend going around on TikTok and when you saw it you just had to jump at it headfirst.
People would take their favorite pictures of themselves, ones that showed off their bodies just the way they liked, and they’d put it to the sound of Megan Thee Stallion’s song “Body”.
You looked through your entire phone gallery to find pictures that you were confident enough to post, some you’d forgotten you even took in the first place.
When you were done, you threw in the simple caption that everyone was using.
Heard we’re using this sound to show off. My turn then😜
Yeahhhhhh, the caption sounded much more confident than you actually felt.
You actually thought about deleting it from the minute you posted it. Insecure wasn’t even the word for it. And even with your followers there to hype you up, you couldn’t help but feel self-conscious. So, albeit hesitantly, you went to your friends for support.
The first person you showed was Michelle.
“You killed that,” she said in math class as she passed you the phone underneath the table so that the professor wouldn’t see.
“Thanks,” you said. “I was honestly kinda nervous about it.” You noticed her incredulous look and explained yourself, toying with the loose strings on your jacket. “Like seriously, I don’t wanna fish for compliments, it’s just that there are so many better ones out there.”
Michelle gave a lopsided grin. “That’s just you being insecure, you dork,” she retorted. “You look hot.” She gave an uninterested glare at the teacher when they told her to be quiet. Then she turned towards you with a smile. “You shown Peter yet? I bet he’d agree.”
You shifted in your seat nervously and MJ immediately caught on. “What, you don’t wanna show him?” She gave you a look when you took a while to answer. “Dude he’s literally your boyfriend. I’m pretty sure he’ll like it.”
“MJ, we haven’t even-” you looked around secretively. “-we haven’t even taken our shirts off in front of each other yet. There’s literally a pic of me in my sports bra and I..” You shrugged, a little embarrassed by the conversation topic. “I-i just don’t know how he’d react.”
You and Peter were a fairly new couple and were taking it slow. You’d only ever kissed, cuddled, and held hands so far. Plus, you were a major causal clothes wearer. Sweatshirts and jeans, those were your specialty. The two of you were in no rush and you were both fine with that, but you had no idea how he would react to seeing pictures of you like that.
And, though it wasn’t the most feminist approach, you kinda wanted to impress him. Was that so bad?
MJ, forever the voice of patronizing reason, rolled her eyes at you. “So, let me get this straight. You’re not fine with your boyfriend seeing sexy pictures of you, but you’re okay with literal strangers seeing you instead?”
“Look, I know it’s-”
“No, no I totally get it,” she said with a sympathetic smirk, before laughing. “I just wanted to show you how dumb it sounded though.”
The bell rang, signaling the end of class.
“Look,” she said, standing up and getting her things. “You have nothing to be worried about. Peter practically worships the ground you walk on. He’ll love it.”
When you showed Ned, he genuinely didn’t give a shit.
“Oh my God, there’s a new Megan Thee Stallion album?!”
“I have to listen to it right now!”
“Yeah okay, but do you like the-”
He was already plugging in his headphones before you even finished your sentence.
You showed Harry next. If anyone was gonna rate you unabashedly, it’d definitely be him.
He was the only friend you had in your lunch period, so you met up with him every day. Towards the end of lunch that day, you’ll pulled out your phone and asked if he wanted to see the video. He enthusiastically agreed.
He watched the short video with an amused expression, bopping his head to the music all the while.
When it ended, he handed you your phone back and gave you a high-five. “Damn girl!,” he praised. “Just throwing it out there, if Peter fails you, I’m hella available.”
“Heh, thanks.” You smiled as you felt your entire face heat up. “Ya think he’ll like it?”
“What, you haven’t shown him yet?” You shook her head, giving a nervous smile. “Oh-” he nodded confidently. “-he’ll love it. Trust me.”
“Are you sure?,” you asked.
“Yeah,” he responded with a shrug. “Why are you so worried?”
“Because he’s not-..he doesn’t really seem-” You couldn’t find the right words for it. “I dunno, I just really want him to like it!”
Harry scoffed. “Look. Let me tell you a little secret about Peter Parker,” he snickered. “Or practically all guys for that matter.”
“Okay?,” you said, curious as to where this was going.
He smirked. “You remember when he introduced himself to you at my party last summer?”
“Well, hon…” Harry lowered his head to where he was whispering in your ear. “Your personality wasn’t what he was noticing from across the room.. catch my drift?” He chuckled when he saw you blushing as you caught where his eyes had wandered. “Just sayin’.”
Seeing your incredulous expression, Harry continued. “Peter likes to act like he’s not checking you out every second of the day, but I promise you he is. That little "I’m so respectful and bashful” crap he has going is complete B.S.“
You smirked and rolled your eyes as he pulled away from your ear and kept walking. "You’re an ass.”
Harry shrugged. “True, but I’m a realistic ass.” The alarm on his phone sounded which marked his time to start heading to his next class. Standing up, he smiled down at you. “Seriously, if I could take back all the time spent listening to Pete go on about how good you look in your jeans, I’d be one well rested guy.”
You rolled your eyes, but it betrayed the small smile growing. After all, he wouldn’t be Harry if he wasn’t a flirtatious dweeb. “Bye Harry.”
“Show him the video, [Y/N]. He’ll love it. You know I’m right.”
And then there was one…
Later in the day, you were talking with MJ after school, waiting because Peter always insisted on driving you home because chivalry was not going to die as long as he was alive to keep it going.
When he finally showed up, the first thing he did was take you by the hand and give you a quick peck on the forehead.
“How are you guys doing?,” he asked as your little trio started to walk.
“We’re good,” you chirped, ever so conscious of the phone in your pocket that you were suddenly very hesitant to pull out.
MJ noticed and nudged you. “You got anything you wanna show anybody, [Y/N]?,” she asked with a smirk, causing Peter to look at you curiously.
You stayed quiet, but MJ still wasn’t putting up with it. “I think you may have a video that you made…”
You remained silent and Peter looked at you, a lot more confused now. MJ frowned. “Um… cough.. cough.”
Peter laughed and stopped walking. “Okay, what am I missing?” He looked to you and when he didn’t see your expression falter, he looked to MJ. “What’s going on?”
Michelle shrugged. “[Y/N] wants to show you a dumb TikTok she made but she’s scared about how you’ll react.”
“Michelle!,” you scolded.
She shrugged again. “What? You weren’t going to say anything anytime soon.”
“A TikTok?,” Peter questioned. “Cool, which one did you do this time?”
You could feel your face heat up for the hundredth time that day. “It’s a…um..” You stared down at the ground. Jesus, this was hard. “..It’s a body positivity trend.”
His eyebrows went up at that. “Oh, well um.. is it cool if I see it?,” he asked.
You blushed. “Sure.” You pulled out your phone and opened the app. When you got to the video you quickly shoved it into his face before you had a chance to second-guess yourself.
Both you and Michelle watched Peter’s face as he watched the video.
His cheeks immediately turned red but his expression was unreadable. He had to have watched it over 5 times before MJ pulled the phone out of his hand. “Helloooo, earth to Peter Parker?”
She snapped into his face several times and he started to blink wildly, apparently being pulled out of a trance. “I…um- heh..”
You gave a small, nervous smile. “..did you like it?,” you asked, growing confused as stared at you, his expression still the same. “Um, Peter?”
Suddenly, he smiled and let out a little chuckle. “Sorry… just…” He laughed again and scratched his head, unable to keep eye contact. “You’re just- like…. really hot.”
You blushed. Fuck. “You’re not just saying that are you?”
“No, really like-” He looked back at the phone. “…Damn.” He bit his lip. “How on earth did I get so lucky?”
“Okay, can we please get in the car before I throw up?”
The two of you looked at an uncomfortable MJ with embarrassment riddled on your faces. “Yeah, totally,” you said with an awkward cough. “Sorry.”
“Nice video [Y/N],” Peter murmured bashfully, opening the door of his car for you, his face still beet red. “Really nice…”
