On the twenty fifth of December, a great commotion shall awaken the world and drive it into chaos.”“MERRY CHRISTMAS!”You body’s already moving before you’re aware of it, as you roll out of bed instinctually as your spdier-sense blares. As you thump onto the ground, you head a ‘pomf’ coming from the sound of your bed.Sitting up groggily, you look over as a disappointed looking Stella in emerald green pajamas giving you a sullen look for a moment before shaking it off. “It’s Christmas. Get up!”>[ ] Back to sleep. SLEEEEEEEEEEP.>[ ] Get up, grudgingly>[ ] You are already downstairs>write in

>>29809101>>[ ] Get up, grudginglyMaking the kids wait is half the fun of waking up on Christmas. Get up, get ourselves some hot chocolate, get comfortable while their little brains explode in anticipation.

>>29809405>It is Christmas.Exactly, we need to see Felicia's reaction when she gets her grappling bracers.
>>29809101>>[ ] Back to sleep. SLEEEEEEEEEEP.Then let stella wake peter up again>>[ ] Get up, grudgingly
We havent hear from Doom in long time, I wonder what's he is up to
Your mind snaps into focus as you roll and jump to your feet- and in a number of acrobatic maneuvers you’re already sitting downstairs on the couch as Stella stares gob smacked from the upper landing of the stairs. She’s down moments later as you’re already snapped into Christmas mode.It’s six in the morning. Aunt May and Uncle Ben don’t get up until about eight.There's presents waiting, tantalizingly, around the tree. But they can't be touched. Not yet.What do you do in the meantime?
>>29809912Play guess the present.shake shake rattle shake
>>29809912>call Felicia to wish her a Merry Christmas
>>29809907I like how one of them is clearly Lego Stan Lee.
>>29809912>What do you do in the meantime?Prepare Christmas breakfast for family, maybe get Stella involved? Also check news!
>>29809950It's 6 AM.
>>29809950At six in the morning on christmas?Not THAT suicidal.
>>29809912Watch TV, see if there's any tv specials about a Scientist, Rich Girl and WW2 Soldier saving Christmas. If not, we can at least catch Doreen Green Caroling.
>>29809912Prep food. Faster we get this train moving the faster presents can get opened.
>>29809912>>29809973Yeah, check the news! Maybe Richards is finally unquarantining the Baxter Building, maybe Stark is up to something, maybe Doom is returning.
>>29809907Drunk, asking painters to make portraits of him.>>29809912Hot coco or apple cider.
>>29809912Call Felicia, text Gwen, MJ, Johnny/Sue and Eddie. Wish 'em all Merry Christmas. Have Stella start making breakfast, help her once you're done with the phone.
>>29809996If Deadpool and Squirrel Girl's snark are anything to go by, even if they were the 616 versions, Cosgroverse Squirrel Girl may have a thing for Spider-Man.
>>29809950"Peter, I love you honey but you do realise it six in freaking'n morning? "
>>29810043Speaking of calling people, we should call up Flash see what he's doing for Christmas. (And if shit is bad, invite him over.)>>29810056Too bad people went for the easy path. We could have had Hazlenut Lips and a Girlfriend who could kick anyone's ass.
>>29809912.Make Hot Chocolate.Play guess the present..Watch some Christmas movie (low enough volume to not wake anyone).Prepare Christmas breakfast for family.call Felicia to wish her a Merry Christmas(Later don't wake her up)
>>29810109>spending our Christmas with flash
>>29810120My vote I with this guy.
>>29810043Lets not call people at six in the morning. That's just rude.
>>29810142I'd spend Christmas with flash. He's a bro, and dude needs a friend on christmas, especially if he's Dad is as bad as he is in 616.
>>29810109Sir, the Storms still on lock down,
>>29810185What are you talking about?
>>29809912Hmm, tell Stella stories of past Christamses with Aunt May and Uncle Ben.
>>29809912>>29810120I can back this guy. Seems more reasonable.
>>29810120>.Watch some Christmas movieBetter be A Christmas story
>>29810120Actually i can back this too.
>>29810265Not Die Hard or a Muppet Christmas Carol?
Same Guy >>29810185Sorry, tired didn't finish post >>29810212We should call them see if they like company. At least Flash can spend Christmas with people
>>29810295How aboutThe Star Wars Christmas Special
>>29810120Make it so.
>>29810331>Not spending Christmas with our girlfriend
>MAXIMUM CHRISTMASAm I only one that feel this title is bit villainous?on the other side this ppq so...
>>29810379It's like you don't even MAXIMUM CHRISTMAS
>>29810379Damnit, this will end awesome Also, Spectacular Spectacular Spider-Yule
>>29810379I have to admit I was feeling some trepidation myself.
>>29810416I would prefer spider house but we lack spider-people for it.
>So, call Felicia, make hot chocolate, play guess the present, and then put on a Christmas movie?>That about right?
>>29810551Don't call Felicia, it's way too early.
>>29810551I think we can wait awhile before calling Felicia, but sure.
>>29810551Don't call Felicia until later but yeah
>>29810551Call Felicia later like around 10or 11, but yea.
>>29810551Not in that order, but yes.Oh shoot, did we wrap her presents yet?
>>29810551Don't call Felicia, at least not this early. The sun's not up, there's no way she will be.
>>29810551>call FeliciaNO! Why would you listen to that suggestion. maybe send a text later.
>>29810551Dont call now! Way too early.But otherwise its good.
Tis the season to thwip webbing.Falalalala lala la laDeck villains and quip merry
>>29810551No calling Felicia until it is an normal hour when people are awake.

You start picking up presents for you and Stella as you carefully, begin to teach her the time honored tradition of guessing what’s inside. You carefully weigh and shake the presents as you go through them, one by one.You’re pretty sure there’s a bunch of clothes in there, but there as few you can’t quiet identify- they’re silent and don’t make any noise when shaken. Stella does the same and she has much of the same for thoughts.However, you pick up a present and pause- it’s too light and things inside are shifting too much.It’s Uncle Ben’s old standby trap- the clock in a box!>roll me agility to carefully put it back without setting it off! 1d20+6!

>>29810901>It’s Uncle Ben’s old standby trap- the clock in a box!Um... What?
>>29810971It's a clock in a box. Presumably it's set up so that if you shake the box it sets off the alarm.
>>29810971A clever alarm to prevent present tampering
>>29810901Ben you sly bastard you
Slowly, carefully, you put back the box. As you set it down you cringe at the slight ‘thump’ it makes, but there’s no response from the clock inside.Letting out a sigh of relief, you give a thumbs up to Stella. But now you need a drink. Making a cup of cocoa for the both of you, you sit down and let Stella choose a movie to watch.As the two of you watch Die Hard (quietly), you enjoy the Christmas experience in peace and quiet. When the movie ends, it seems like Aunt May and Uncle Ben are still asleep.

You head towards the kitchen and turn on the news. Seems like Tony Stark’s been sending terror into the Middle East again as Iron Man. You cooking a simple breakfast- some scrambled eggs with bacon, while Stella stands there, slowly beginning to tremble with anticipation.As you keep an eye out for anything of interest- you notice there’s been some sort of employee culling at Oscorp- apparently in the wake of investigations, Oscorp has begun to do some restructuring internally.Hmm. You focus back to food- you should learn how to do some of that cooking using chemistry. It’s science-y and good for you.But you should also think about employment too. Or some way to make money- Dr. Spyral might not be the same as her future self, but she’s someone that it would be good to keep an eye on.Eventually you pay attention to Stella- “You’re a big girl now, Stella, if you need to go, you know where the bathroom is.”You chuckle as she gives you a dirty look before waving her off. “Fine, you can go and-”She’s already gone, as you hear her on the steps.“-wake them. Kids these days.”You shake your head and finish preparing breakfast as you, a few minutes later, see an amused Uncle Ben and Aunt May following Stella down. As your relatives sit down, Aunt May gives you a look.“You didn’t try to experiment with different ingredients this time, did you?”>[ ] “I promise I didn‘t”>[ ] Give a cryptic smile>[ ] pretend to be offended (you totally did)>[ ] write in

>>29812271"Out, am I?"
I've been meaning to post this
>>29812708Is that supposed to be Cosgrove?
You raise an eyebrow as you sit down nonchalantly and smile cryptically. “Well, of course not. One of them is the control. See if you can tell.”You then start on your eggs and bacon as your Aunt and Uncle exchange looks- Stella’s eating at the speed of childish excitement, so you’re not even sure she’s tasting what you made anyway.Eventually, with promises that words will be had over this incident later, it’s time for presents.>CHOOSE INTERLUDE>Tower>Fool>Magician>Devil>Hierophant

Rolled 88>>29813291You mean descritption.
>>29813262But anon the 'fool' in this context doesn't mean someone how is doin lolrandome jokes.We are talking about the tarot symbolism: new beginning, start, different perspective. It fits both Storms, Gwen and Cap (and even sand-man to some degree).The card that would best fit deadpool would be Moon (due to whole creativity/chaos of the character)
>>29813326Looks like some inept shit who can't even tag properly got there before me. Oh well. Cos can include a link to foolz in next thread.

You should think about the art, how to stylistically use the blood to-What, your hair?You pause in your plans and go find a mirrored surface. As you look yourself over, a disgusted look crosses your face. Look at that mess, those split ends. Ugh. Just- Ugh. How can you do anything looking like- like-THAT.You need to clean yourself up. You’re a mess. You’re absolutely right.Hmm. What should you do?There’s a salon open on Christmas- you know that, you could head there but you hate it when people touch your hair.>[ ] It’s inexcusable, but there’s no helping it, go to the salon.>[ ] You’ll handle it yourself, there’s few that are good enough to touch -your- hair.>[ ] It looks fien the way it is and it’s cold out.

We're gunna meet Felicia at the Salon aren't we? Then we'll kill her, and Peter will be sad and Christmas will be ruined, then everyone will find out about Stella since Felicia is supposed to be related to her or something and then everything will go down the shitter.All because you had to post trickle down economics
>And then all the girls did their hair at the salon
So apparently we got Shadowruns for Christmas.
The spoilers, she is in there pleading it to stop. Pleading for her nightmare to end.
>>29814849Maybe, but it still just doesn't add up completely.
>>29814588Just saying, the christmas special thing with the cosgrove lewd pictures and the 1's that stop Doctor Doom from helping?That WAS ME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
>>29814848My favorite present.
>>29814872We are missing an important few pieces of the puzzle.What if we've completely missed our base and Felicia is...oh my, no.>>29814848My favorite present.>>29814891DIIIIOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!
>>29814588At least we'll be free to date Doreen.
>>29814961Yeah, it's probably Felicia. Peter should dump her and start going out with someone better. Closer to home, maybe.
>>29814961What, Felicia is Carnage?That really doesn't add up since I'm pretty sure the killings continued after she found out we were Spider-Man.
You’d rather kill anyone who touches you rather than suffer the indignity of admitting weakness, but you’re right.Desperate times call for desperate measures. You head into New York itself as you head towards this place. Apparently, it helps people find love or some bullshit like that, but you don’t care. All you want is for this indignity to disappear. Looking around, you eventually spot the damned salon. It’s a boutique called ‘Cinderella’ and it seems all but deserted. Heading to the door, you see the ‘Open’ sign and head on inside. A woman’s sitting at the counter and looks up from the magazine she’s reading.She’s an attractive enough Asian woman who seems to know something about style, even if her hair is a disgusting blonde. Well, nothing to do about that. There also seems to be nobody else here.“Can I help you, Miss?”>[ ] I need a makeover- direct, to the point>[ ] Sorry to bother you on Christmas, but it’s a bit of a personal emergency. -polite, try to manipulate her>[ ] Sorry, not today.

>>29815028Alright so it's definitely looking like MJ, being a woman, not having blonde hair, and having an aversion to being touched.Kind of annoying that an obvious twist has been dragged out this long, but this IS comic books.
>>29815028>sorry to bother you...For the honor of touching our hair, we'll make her something beautiful in turn>>29815014I'm just spit balling needless shadowruns.

>>29815278I know that, I just love seeing where Cosgrove places it/implements it. My paranoid shadowruns are about the aforementioned looming cross over possibilities and MJ being Carnage.
>>29815331I don't see what you're so giddy about. I'm kind of exasperated at the whole thing by now.
I think it's safe to say that Carnage is either MJ or Gwen by now. Leaning towards MJ just for the way that some of these choices are phrased.
>>29815368Carnage said they hated blondes, and Gwen is blonde.
>>29815368It's obviously Peter.
>>29815360Different tastes, I'll try to reign myself in from my usual over excited-ness henceforth.
>>29815368Gwen doesn't really make sense.But neither does MJ really.
You stare at her- you’re good a keeping yourself calm, collected. This woman’s going to touch and probably cut -your- hair.No need to be polite, you’re already granting her an honor.“I need a makeover.”She stares at you, long and hard before she grimaces. “Fine, I can do that. I’ll give you an ordinary makeover, but you aren’t getting the deluxe Cinderella treatment- that’s only for girls in desperate need of finding their true love.”She closes her book and stands up, walking over towards a chair. “Not for someone heartless like you.”She’s waiting for you by a chair.>[ ] Sit down, let her do her job.>[ ] Demand what she meant by that.>[ ] Take her out.

I wonder what Felicia has been up to...
Rolled 55>>29815914She wouldn't lie to Pete, there was a promise to not do this anymore
You ignore the voice in the back of your head telling you to run. You’re right. You can let her do her job, then kill her. Especially if it’s unsatisfactory.You sit down as the Beautician lets out a sigh before you feel the bib wrap around you, your hair brushed out of the way as she gives you a look over. Pulling out several beutry products, and things like scissors, she begins to get to work. Slowly but surely, you begin to see the work come to light- you hair is treated and cut, revealing it to a shimmering red curtain. Then your face and nails are also treated. It’s relaxing, were it not for the fact that you want to kill her every time she touches you.But you’re more disciplined than that. It was beaten into y- This woman. She’s an eyesore. She should disappear.Eventually, she finishes, revealing your face to the mirror. For a rude bitch with no taste in hair color, she did an… acceptable job. Yes. Now your inner beauty is just as apparent outwardly. You’re skin is smooth and those nasty shadows under your eyes are gone. Yes. You can work with this. Now, as for this woman’s payment…>[ ] Kill her quickly, as repayment for her services.>[ ] Just pay her, you could make this into a full makeover, no reason you can’t enjoy the day.

>>29816166This Felicia is less like that, and also younger/cuter.
>>29816131So the secret's out. I don't know why she'd cry about Harry Osborn snubbing her, or how she'd be able to kill that many police officers without getting pumped full of lead, but fine.
Maybe it's a red herring
>>29816251It depends on how the rest of this arc goes.
>>29816227Remember what a spoilered option was for Agent Venom?
>>29816131But... wh.. >IC we have no reason to stop Stella from visiting her
>>29816251More like a red hairing
>>29816263I do not.

>>29816276...Knowing cosgrove.... This is totally possible
Kinda surprised everybody's against lashing out.

>>29816116>>[ ] Kill her quickly, as repayment for her services.
>>29816116>[ ] Kill her quickly, as repayment for her services
>>29816292Yea, her visits and having friends are extremely important. Look at how there haven't been any more attacks since we got back. We thought that was because Cassidy turned himself in, but maybe it's because we've been unknowingly helping MJ suppress whatever alternate personality/whatever has been doing the killings.
>>29816335They want MJ to be the killer, not the other red head.
>>29816335She did do a good job.
>>29816335I voted to kill once, but I'm suppressing my urges now
>>29816373Yep. I'd go one step further and say that any and all interaction (of the positive kind) we have with at-risk folks is good. Keeps them from doing stuff they shouldn't.
>>29816116>[X] Kill her quickly, as repayment for her services.
>>29816390You mean the one that shouldn't be ready yet?
You nod at the woman and get up, paying her the money at the register- even as cold and unfriendly as she is, she still manages to give you some tips to maintain your current appearance.You make a note to remember her face.But you feel good, you should go find someplace to continue this makeover.>1d100

Im beginning to think maybe Carnage isnt actually just one person.Like, maybe its something that jumps from person to person.
>>29816530Cosgrove always goes low on d100 rolls. If he were to change that I am sure he would announce it when asking for the roll.
You head out and about, looking for any open shops, but it’s still early in the day, so even as you look around, there’s nothing to find that’s open.Right. Because it’s fucking CHRISTMAS.Everyone’s either all locked away in their homes or everything’s closed.It’s boring.You shiver in the cold as your phone buzzes. It’s a text from your aunt, asking you to head on home. …And that woman watches you like a hawk, too.>[ ] Continue to stay out, you’re your own master>[ ] Head back, plot something>[ ] Head home, go to sleep. >write in

>>29816626Yeah, like that. So, it might be MJ now, but most likely it wasnt originally her, and might be someone else before peter ever even figures it out.

>>29816680Come to think of it, this would also explain why our Spider Sense would react to her sometimes, but not other times.
>>29816789>Not bullying peterCome on, Carnage just fucking loves making peter life miserble. Besides, we need to anyway, peter is having it too good. We need to make his life just shitty on christmas to get him going.
>>29816816And how it was going nuts near her at Thanksgiving when she scraped her arm.
>>29816804With what material? At best there are just hobos outside now, and no one cares about the homeless.
What version of spiderman should I begin with?
Rolled 14>>29816895What do you mean?
>>29816879Spider-Man cares.>>29816895For reading? Probably "Ultimate Spider-Man."
>>29816908Which version of the spiderman comics I mean, I know there's ultimate and amazing and original and probably some others. I know next to nothing about comics though>>29816921I see, thank you.

>>29816933It's pretty good and consistent, and really the only book to go through the "Ultimatum" event without becoming a steaming pile of suck. It can be a little difficult to find the beginning of it though since they went a bit wonky with the numbering and name of the book, but your local comic book store owner should be happy to help.>>29817000She'll go with Red.

As you walk ‘home‘, you notice a familiar playground on the way, it’s covered in snow, but you remember this. Right, this is why you used to always pick on your neighbor here.He was always so whiny and dorky. You hated him.Every time he’d smile at you, you’d make him cry. How dare he be be happy while you-Hmph.Well, might as well start up the old hobby. Pulling out your phone, you find his number. Maybe you should send him a text, lure him out and- NO. GO HOME. GO BACK WHERE YOU BELONG! DON’T YOU DARE TOUCH HIM! You slide the phone closed with a grimace as you hold your head. Yeah, you should just head home. Take a nap. You’ve exhausted yourself enough for one day, you can piss him off any other day. He might even brush you off with ‘Christmas Cheer.’You snort to yourself as you pass the Parker home and head on inside. You ignore your aunt and head up to your room. Writing a few things as a note to yourself to be found, you lay down on your bed and go to sleep.>Choose your Interlude>Fool>Magician>Devil>Hierophant
>>29817209>HierophantMy body is ready.
>>29817209OH THANK GOD>Devil
>>29817209>FoolLET'S GET THE DEADFOO-ER, POOL ACTION GOING, WE NEED TO SANTA IT UP ALREADY
>>29817209>>FoolSo, interlude means we're ending shortly, right?
>>29817209So here's my theory.While we heard Dark MJ TALK about killing people and turning them into art, she never said that she ever actually went out and did it.Like how do we know that this doesn't happen all the time, that she has strong homicidal urges but never actually acts on them.If she did try to attack the hairdresser, she'd have gotten her ass kicked.
>>29817209>HierophantNick fury gogogo
>>29817308Didnt she live with her mom though?
Rolled 47>>29817308I think you're right.MJ isn't a criminal, but she has a split personality.Wonder if getting her to see Doc Samsom might help
So assuming these stay the same Devil was Kasady and Fool was Sandman right?
>>29817395they do not
>>29817386Is he one of the most Jojo style Marvel characters?Excluding that terrible story that was written about him semi-recently.
>>29817395I have a feeling that The Magician represents Felicia/Gwen and The Devil is one of the Osborns. Hierophant could likely be Nick Fury or DOCTOR DOOM and The Fool is a complete wildcard, reading the definition for it. I'm inclined to think Deadpool.
>>29817395Are we're doing the same thing as with Carnage or are we doing not controllable narritives?>Fool
>>29817464Why spoil the surprise?It's Christmas and you're trying to guess what's in the presents instead of opening them.
>>29817448>Pick Magician>We have to choose how Felicia breaks up with Peter
>>29817496Why does the Magician symbolizes that?
>>29817496You don't spend a month working out how to break up with someone on Christmas.That takes an incredible amount of cuntery.
>>29817496die in a fire
>>29817496Ouch....Goddammit, I could see Cos doing that.
>>29817321>CosgroveI figured Hierophant would be Doom.Though pic related, Doom may be the Fool.
>>29817209Oh shit. You're going asshole dad route with her, aren't you?Dissociative Identity disorder's a bitch.
>>29817609Probably.If Pete finds out IC he should work to help her, eh?
>>29817609Is there another route to go?
>>29817609... Childhood trauma WOULD make sense... Do we know what MJ's parents did in the past in Cosgroverse?
>>29817609Think of it this way, she just dramatically increased her chances of getting Gamma-Mutated.Red She Hulk anyone?
>>29817676If by help her you mean get her committed, then yes.
>>29817693Childhood trauma caused either by dad or by a run in with original carnageor both
>>29817798Or it could be that she had a run in with Richard Parker's "Suit."And that's the part telling her to be good.
>>29817798Her dad was the original carnage, and she was born with Symbiote in her blood

>>29817862Thanks for running, good night.
>>29817862Thanks for running
>>29817862Thanks for running, I am annoyed I nodded off, but this was awesome all the same
>>29817761Depends on what she actually did. Sure she delivered on the crazy AND the killing intent, but I haven't yet seen proof that she can back up her murder lust.
>>29818477But we have seen that normal MJ seems absolutely terrified of the prospect of this version of herself getting it's hands on Peter. Even if he isn't Carnage, she is probably the woman in white from Halloween.
>>29818548Oh she's definitely that.And while I really don't think she's capable of doing the things Carnage did, she's theoretically capable of murdering one person if she has time to get ready for it.
>>29818548>normal MJTo be fair, we don't know which MJ is the normal one.
>>29818690So, we've narrowed it down to a few possibilities:MJ has a split personality, brought on by abuses committed by her dad or some horrific indoctrination by another red obsessed fellow.MJ is host to the Carnage Symbioti, both of them are under the inpression that it's. Split disorder Somehow, MJ is also Alice
>>29819089And the ever-present possibility is that it's completely different from anything anyone has ever said or ever thought.
