Good start.

A hardworking university freshmen is drawn back into crime

Yup, great quote. It's not about eyes, it's having to guess what exactly is holding back Tristina or what would help. Until she responds, this sparked me to elaborate on my first time...it was fueled ...

All these characters are about dual identities so the clear thing is to write Spidey when in costume and Peter at other times. Though not for things like his room in a scene header, that's always Pete ...
