Hi. I love your writing and its so nice of you to take time to fill all of these prompts. Please "AU where everything is the same but jemma gets infected with the alien virus in season 2, 3 or 4, that's up to you"

Hi! Aww thanks, I’m actually really enjoying it! :) Also, thank you for the prompt!!

I chose do to Season 2 (though I could pretty easily be persuaded to try out 3 or 4…), and since “everything is the same”, I wrote under the assumption that something else in Season 1 triggered Fitz’s realization of feelings, and everything happened in much the same way, just without 1x06.

*Takes place sometime around 2x12/2x13

Jemma Simmons was completely and utterly tired of aliens and the messes they left behind.

When Coulson had gathered up her, Skye, Fitz, and May on a trip to investigate a floating body, Jemma had known nothing good could possibly come from it. Whatever had caused it was obviously alien, and Coulson had been worried that it might have something to do with the Obelisk (even after it’d been destroyed in the temple) or possibly even HYDRA – neither of which spelled out anything good for them.

Unfortunately, it had taken two more victims for them to realize that the cause was a virus left in a Chitauri helmet, and Jemma couldn’t help but feel responsible for more deaths; if they’d only just figured it out sooner…

However, they had the helmet in their possession, and had loaded it onto the Bus to take with them to another SHIELD base Coulson had gotten back up and running, that would further study and take care of it. Along the way, Jemma had begun the study, though, and she was so sick of anything to do with aliens that she couldn’t even find it in her to be amazed at how the virus spread from person to person through electrostatic shock, something never before seen on Earth.

And, it was just par for the course that Jemma herself would end up with the virus; really, she wasn’t even surprised any more by the terrible luck they all seemed to have when it came to things like this.

According to her calculations, she figured that she must have contracted the virus thirty-six hours ago, which left her with only two hours now to figure out a solution – or remove herself from the situation, which she would if it came down to it. But, so far, nothing she’d tried seemed to work, because how could it when she didn’t understand anything about this virus?
