Remember when I said I’d do a series of post-s4 one-shots? Well, here they come.
Thanks @agentcalliope for the header and beta-ing!
“You know,” Daisy said as they sat her down, “‘mandatory new placement’ sounds a lot like 'exile.’”
“Or prison,” May responded coolly.
“Yeah, well, I’m trying to be an optimist.”
Jemma sighed as she took her seat next to Elena. "The alphabetical arrangement may be giving them away. And the inhibitive gauntlets.“ She cast a glance down the line to where Daisy sat between Fitz and Mack before smiling at Fitz. "Our design would be far more attractive, wouldn’t it?”
Fitz responded with a small, sad smile that looked misplaced in his beard. He clearly hadn’t shaved since their return from the Framework. Were she next to him, and not all the way down the line, she would rest a hand on his cheek, and tell him she loved him no matter what his facial hair was. But the whole team save Coulson sat between them.
It was the alphabetical arrangement that was the worst, Jemma thought as Elena squeezed her knee. That, and the individual holding cells.
And the guards that would have ICED her on the spot had she tried to break order and get to Fitz (this she now knew from experience).
Definitely not prison.
