[AOS] All I Want For Christmas ~ Fitzsimmons Secret Santa

AN ~ FitzSimmons Secret Santa for anythas-thoughts. My prompt was “first holiday together as a couple”. I was watching Love Actually and tossing up between Christmas and Valentines Day and then this happened. And I’ve been reading fics with Fitz’ written accent lately, I don’t usually write it but it happened while he was being grumpy in the morning. It chills out later in the fic/day. It was really nice to write some fluff! SO MANY LAYERS OF FLUFF I think this whole season worth of angst just fluffified. I hope you like it.

All I Want For Christmas

Simmons stretched herself awake, smiling as the heavy lump that was Fitz obstructed the movement of her limbs. As he began to stir, she wriggled out of his arms and rolled out of the way, and sprang lightly to her feet. He scowled at her from the bed as she flicked through a few of the options in her wardrobe, picked one, and turned back to face him, the dress sweeping outward in the spin.

“Goooood morning, Mr Simmons,” she greeted with a smile, laying her selection on the end of the bed.

“It’d be be’er three hours from now!” he retorted. “An’ Mr Simmons? Wha’s that about? Tha’s no’ how it works. Besides, we’re no’ even married. You wouldn’t like it if I star’ed calling you Mrs Fitz now would ye’?”

“I…wouldn’t mind.”

Congratulations for your milestone! I've just read your giveaway fics and they're all awesome(as always). :) Might I ask for this one? 78: Are a tourist who gets hopelessly lost and a local who offers to show them around.

aw thank you so much! if I remember correctly, you’ve been in the fandom for longer than I have (or at the very least, just as long), so congratulations to you, too. ;-)
Anniversary Ficlet 7/10.
Rated G. FitzSimmons. Non-SHIELD AU.

Nothing exciting ever happened in Birnam. This was fact, and anyone who thought differently was kidding themselves. The most interesting things they ever got were particularly weird Shakespeare fans who made the trek from Glasgow just so they could laugh at their own forest jokes. From the city himself, Fitz had considered more than once how he would pay someone to get him out of Birnam, but unfortunately his job prevented him from leaving for another two years, one month, and seventeen days. Not that he was counting.

The company had offered him an exorbitant amount of money to do R&D on a new type of rocket fuel, as well as provide them with weaponry consultations while he was at it, and Fitz had initially jumped at the chance. He should have known that the job had sounded too good to be true, and the isolation of the development facility was high on his list of reasons why he couldn’t wait to leave this little town in Perthshire for good. Convinced that this would always be the case, Fitz went through the motions of living in the Scottish countryside without ever trying to find a reason why he would stay. So it made complete sense that, one gray afternoon, said reason would literally knock him on his arse.

Wow, you guys! I’ve seen a lot of great theories/ideas about Simmons’s Earrings, and I’ll probably end up making a masterpost of all of them, including my own, sometime later today.

anythas-thoughts brought up Simmons’s other major jewelry choice, and since necklaces are much easier to spot than earrings, I managed to find all the times Simmons has worn this particular necklace (where the pendant is visible). It turns out that with the exception of the Pilot and 0-8-4, this is the only necklace of choice for Simmons! (In the first two episodes she wears some kind of golden horseshoe necklace, but this one has been there from The Asset up until What We Become.)

I’m forming headcanons as I type, but does anyone have any they’d like to share?
