[tldr: Liz has a crush on peter during hoco and mj helps her ask him out to the party, plan for the washington, etc. but mj realizes she fell for peter already in the process]
Liz and the other girls having boy talk and then mj is like 👁👄👁
“Do you have a crush on anyone?”
Mj pulling her book from her eyes: …no
That one scene where liz invites peter to the pool.
Mj thinks she might explode if she sees peter in trunks only so although shes the one who encouraged liz to carry out the plan, she was adamant about staying in her room with her book. Then she hears shuffling by her door and peaks out the window to see peter making a beeline exit to the opposite end of the pools entrance
She finally brings up the courage to come join liz, partially in hopes to see peter. Mj doesnt wear anything like a bikini or the fashionable one piece like liz does. Instead she wears something that helped her feel more comfortable, more concealed. She fashioned a tomboy suit with a jacket on top, just in case she doesnt actually go in the water last minute. But when everyone says peter isnt here, mj pouts and says she just saw him pass by her room three minutes ago
Girls talk on who they think spiderman is and who could it be out of their classmates and the topic of peter comes up since hes always missing
Liz profusely shakes her head and insists that theyre different, peter is so this and spiderman is so that.
“they cant possibly the same person.”
Mj just chills in the background while theyre talking
but when Liz says this, her mouth speaks before she can think.
“Do you like peter or spiderman more?”
Liz gets defensive and Mj, being obsessed with the truth, blatantly states that “it just sounds a little like youd drop anything to be with spiderman, a person you dont even know vs peter who we do know.”
Then liz tries to put things in perspective for Mj saying, “imagine your crush is also a crime fighting superhero, living a double life and lying to you? What would you do?”
Mj inhales slowly and says “Doesnt matter. They must have a reason. Theyre still who they are at heart. I would like them either way. ”
