You’re lucky. You’ve fallen in love with your best friend. The person who accepts you at your worst. The person who laughs at your stupid jokes. The person who knows you better than you know yourself.

can you imagine trying to play apples to apples with fitzsimmons though?

like they know each other so well

they would know exactly what to pick to get the other person to choose their card

and everybody thinks they’re cheating except they know that simmons can’t lie

and so this is an actual thing that is happening

the biggest victory is not winning the biggest victory is getting fitz or simmons to pick your card over each others

any way this is happening in delinquency!au right now because new kid grant didn’t really understand how badly he and trip and skye would get trounced by the tiny nerds and i thought it was kind of cute

Masculinity in the MCU is coded like, well, like Nick Fury. Being a masculine guy means that you have the power to stop the bad guys, whether with a gun like Coulson or with your smarts like Tony or by way of gamma radiation like Bruce Banner. It’s rare in most any media to have a male character like Fitz, who’s unapologetic about his love for Simmons, his apparent fear of guns, his lack of field knowledge. A character like Fitz would normally be the butt of a joke, not the acclaimed hero, and yet S.H.I.E.L.D. goes out of its way to prove that the Wards of the world don’t always have to be the ideal when it comes to masculinity. With Ward and Fitz, S.H.I.E.L.D. asks us to consider what a weak man truly acts like, and concludes that physical strength and mental stoicism are not always the mark of a strong man. Strength is compassion, and compassion is badass.
