evb meet and greet

Hey guys! I’m submitting this too even though I’m not an official participant ;) But, since I don’t really get to participate in EvB (*sobs*), I’ll take the activities I can because well, I can.

  • URL: @fitzsimmonsy
  • (Nick)name: Maggie
  • Age: 26
  • Personality Type: Neutral Good. Very strong Slytherin/Gryffindor hybrid.
  • What do you love most about FS?: I love their unique blend of friendship and romance that truly defies normal descriptors and is 100% unconditional. That it’s all about the other person being safe and happy, and they’ll do anything and fight forever for that to happen. I also love that they’re highly intelligent, but still incredibly emotional and giving people.
  • Favorite FS moment: It’s a tie between them working together to save Jemma from the Chitauri virus, everything that happened in the pod, the sunrise scene, and their intimate moments in 03x17 and 03x18. 
  • Favorite non-FS character: I honestly can’t pick a favorite AoS character besides them (or I’d say like 6 people), so you’re getting Margaery Tyrell, Aang and Jyn Erso.
  • Fun fact about yourself/something you’d like to share: Besides the fact that I can’t pick favorites? Hmm…I’m pretty obsessed with being organized and I’m also currently considering getting a pet rat. 
  • Recommend one thing (book, movie, show, etc.): *whispers* Go see Rogue One if you haven’t seen it and join me in my eternal agony.
Re: EvB Meet & Greet post

I swear I had a post written yesterday and it didn’t post or something.

ANYWAYS.

To those who were interested in one of my Iceland-related VIP stories (@bigfunnywords, @tashonix, @accio-the-force, @unlessimwrongwhichyouknowimnot), you may choose from the following list:

  • Stephen Colbert
  • Misha Collins (or just go here :) )
  • Björk
  • Christy Turlington
  • The current Icelandic president and his wife
  • A semi-famous Icelandic director who made a semi-famous Viking movie in the 1980s

Thank you all for the lovely replies! My desktop is being a tool and not showing me notifications so I’ve gone this way instead. 

@unbreakablejemmasimmons Season Four is amazing - each season keeps getting better and better! It leaves me really excited about Season Five and how they’re going to go better again. 

@theresalwaysaway Ha! Glad to know that I’m not the only one, maybe I will watch the other movies someday *shrugs* And us fandom grandmas have gotta stick together ;) 

@catchylove SDCC is incredible, exactly what you would imagine! If you have ever been to any of your local ‘cons (I go to Oz Comic Con and Supanova every year) take that and amplify it. The atmosphere is absolutely incredible, so many people passionate about so many things in one place. And I guarantee you’ll never go anywhere else where people will apologise for bumping into you (which happens when 130,000 people descend on the same space!) or such a great place where people don’t judge you for what you’re into. I had so many different conversations with people from all different fandoms and walks of life, it’s terrific. 

Then there’s all the other stuff like sleep deprivation because there is so much to see and do, packing into a hotel room with 8-10 others to save some cash and cos everything is booked out, surviving on junk food etc All totally worth it! Plus all the cast you can meet and fun stuff you can do off site etc etc Feel free to ask any more questions :) 

@marvelouswhovianfairytales Start watching! You will get seriously hooked, every episode is drama on top of drama and it sucks you in. Plus you’ll fall in love with the cast :) 

@florchis No HP books either! I did try to read the first one a long time ago but couldn’t get into it. Part of me has always thought I’d try again so maybe one day! And hehehe thanks, I’m glad people liked the fandom grandma line :D

@consoledacup When I go back and rewatch now I pay so much more attention to May, she’s had an awesome arc and god, how she always picks herself up again and gets on with it - super inspiring! I’m so doing Season 4 for your rewatch thing :D 

@jemmablossom Oh man I did not expect to get so into Riverdale but I did! Every time I thought things couldn’t get worse, or a character possibly couldn’t sink any lower they did! Plus Cheryl being so extra cracks me up every time :D Not to mention all of the other awesome cast :) Bring on season two! 

@inevitablefan-ne-girl Hahahah I know, I know! I have recorded some others so I might get there slowly! And SDCC is incredible (see above) - I didn’t meet any of the ‘big 3′ but I got to meet other cast members who were so lovely. Willow Shields remembered me which was amazing (I met her at Oz Comic Con in Melbourne in 2012 where I tried to teach her to pronounce Melbourne). 

Bruno Gunn (he plays Brutus) gave me the most glorious bone crunching hug. I got a selfie with Natalie Dormer. Mahershala Ali is the most wonderful man and taught me how to say his name so I was so rapt to see his success this year. We also had a really philosophical discussion with Jeffrey Wright (Beetee) about the books and why we loved them, the whole cast was so passionate about the messages in the books and doing justice with the movies. Honestly one of the best experiences of my life :) 

Thanks for all the kind replies to my Meet and Greet Intro!

@consoledacup

Idiocracy is RIDICULOUS. OMG. I was waiting for the other shoe to drop in 3x17 too!

Nice to see I wasn’t alone!  And Idiocracy is underrated!

@unbreakablejemmasimmons

Idiocracy is so good but I’m afraid to watch it in today’s trying times. It’s too real!

I know, right?  I don’t think it’s going to take 500 years!

@catchylove

oh, excellent choice!! the tech is such an underrated aspect but it’s so important and i love when we get to see them in their natural sciencey environment!! and doing a cartwheel on the equator is amazing - what a cool thing to get to say you’ve done!!!

Thanks! It was so cool to be there. I just love how in AoS, tech is designed by the good guys to help people and save the day. So often in Hollywood, we just see the storyline where the evil scientist needs to be stopped, but all the engineers I know are like Fitz and Simmons!

 @waitingforeleven

I love how you thought someone was going to interrupt the 3x17 moment! But no, for once, they got their moment!! :)

I was so relieved and so happy for them!!! Finally!!!


 @leggypeggys

Sci fi tech!!!! *Grabby hands* I don’t even care that it’s not scientifically accurate ahaha. What did you think when they brought out Trip’s howling commandos stuff? Did you have a Coulson moment? Hahaha

I enjoy it even when it’s not completely accurate either, it’s just close enough that it sounds like it could work.  There’s no such thing as gravitonium, but I did learn about compiler theory in college.

I’m drawing a blank on what exactly the howling commandos stuff consisted of. Maybe you could remind me? But I’m sure I had a Coulson moment!

 @somethingmarvelous

Yes! I’m right there with you, give me all the fs + tech omg, I really hope we get to see more of their collaborative works again soon

Me, too!  In space, I hope! Plus I miss the drones.

 @aosfangirl81

I love Idiocracy so much!!! It’s such a great movie and scarily prophetic…

I know!  It’s happening even faster, too!

 @tashonix

Oh I love that you mentioned the tech! I have no idea what they’re doing half the time but as a total geek I do love all of the very cool tech :) I need to hear more about this cartwheel on the equator too!

Yes! I need more holotable!  My husband and I were in Quito, Ecuador for a short-term project with a radio station there and took a little side trip to the equator.  

 @mrsdecaestecker

I WANT TO CARTWHEEL TOO!!!

They are the best! I once did one off the diving board into a pool and the lifeguard yelled at me.  C’mon people, live a little!  

 @leopoldjamesfitzs

Your reasoning for loving them is so different from what I’ve read from everyone else and can I just say that is absolutely wonderful? Personally I don’t really pay that much attention to the science portion a lot of the time, and those are my woes because I end up being distracted by the pretty, but rewatching now I’ve started to pick up on it and really,  their brilliance is astounding. Some of the inventions that they have put together are just mind blowing.

It’s just so relatable to me.  Sometimes my husband asks me to help him with the software he’s working on and it’s so cool to collaborate that way.  

 @leopoldjamesfitzs

Gotta say, though, I’m totally on board with your comment about 3x17. I spent that whole scene wondering who was going to interrupt them. 🙈 I’m glad for that alone that we were spoiled. Welcome to team engineering, comrade!

 Exactly! You could see the door in the background and I kept thinking it was going to open any second, but instead they had a great moment!

 

 @marvelouswhovianfairytales

The tech is amazing. A cart wheel on the equator? Must have been a long cart wheel?

HAHAHAHAHA. Yes, it was!!!  :-D

(Nick)name: Charlotte

Personality Type: Ravenclaw, ENFP, Libra

What do you love most about FS?: How true and beautiful their relationship is. They’re first and foremost friends who love and respect each other as people-physical attraction isn’t the only factor nor is it the most important factor in their relationship. Also they’re beautiful nerds like me lol

Favorite FS moment: The scene in 4x21. You know, THAT one. I love it so much. I’ve done an entire meta on it and frankly I could do at least 4 more

Favorite non-FS character: In AoS or just in general? In AoS it’s Bobbi Morse but in general atm it’s Peter Parker

Fun fact about yourself/something you’d like to share: My nephew loved my Funko pop collection and in particular my Daisy Johnson one, so I taught him her name and his first word after ‘Mama’ and ‘Dada’ was 'Daisy’…Proud Auntie.

Recommend one thing (book, movie, show, etc.): I think everyone in the world should read The Book Thief.

What do you love most about FS?: it’s kind of stupid but between the two of them they’ve mastered physics, biology, and chemistry, which are the three main branches of science. it just complements how well they go together.
Favorite FS moment: the entire Seychelles scene
Favorite non-FS character: daisy!
Fun fact about yourself/something you’d like to share: i once saw elizabeth, ming, and chloe during a panel at sdcc and almost didn’t recognize them coming out because they’re shorter than I expected

  • (Nick)name: Sanna
  • Age: Thirty-*mumblessecondnumberveryquietly*
  • Personality Type: Ravenclaw (Ravenpuff) / INFJ / S1JemmaSimmons
  • What do you love most about FS?: They’re the nerds. They work with their brains more than their muscle and that’s so relatable to me.
  • Favorite FS moment: The silent hug in T.R.A.C.K.S. (‘cause they make me feel more with saying nothing at all then other characters with entire speeches) [P.S. ALL OF THE MOMENTS!]
  • Favorite non-FS character: BSquad, Mack’s Shotgunaxe [*whispers* and basically everyone else]
  • Fun fact about yourself/something you’d like to share: 99% of my cool VIP stories are somehow related to Iceland. [I will elaborate if anyone asks ;) ]
  • Recommend one thing (book, movie, show, etc.): The Little Prince

Hello friends! This is my submission for EvB! 

  • URL: lapiccolina
  • (Nick)name: Hmm, I don’t really have one with this fandom, but in my last one, I was call “Resa” pretty regularly (TheRESA). :)
  • Age: 33 (real talk - my 30s have been the best years of my life so far)
  • Personality Type: HUFFLEPUFF AND PROUD. ESFJ. 
  • What do you love most about FS?: Um, EVERYTHING. But really, just the way they love each other, how they can talk with and over each other, and how the show constantly shows how smart they are. They’re empathetic, and for a show that has a things like strength and powers that can’t be explain by science, these two are the most powerful when they’re just being their best human selves full of heart and love. Also, they just FIT. Like, when you look at two people and think, “Damn, they make sense.” YEAH, THESE TWO MAKE SENSE.
  • Favorite FS moment: The “A picture of space” scene. I adore everything about it. The highlights as to why I FREAKING LOVE THIS SCENE:
  1. They both take that step towards BEING SOMETHING MORE.
  2. THE HUMOR. I mean, who doens’t love cheeky Fitz making Jemma laugh? I mean honestly.
  3. I get her head resting on her shoulder, his head leaning on her head, and sloooooow slide into a kiss. I DIED SEEING IT HAPPEN LIVE. I legit started screaming and jumping from my couch up and down. FITZSIMMONS ARE NOW CANON. SUCK IT B****ES. LOL.
  4. And then, the completely FUN kiss after that slow perfect slide into that first one. Fitz makes a joke to break this delicious sexual tension and Jemma laughs at him. And then she looks at him with what I like to think is her, “this ridiculous man is mine” look and then KISSES HIM TO STOP HIM FROM MUMBLING. 
  5. SERIOUSLY YOU GUYS, THIS IS MY FAVORITE SCENE AND I LOVE EVERYTHING ABOUT IT.
  • Favorite non-FS character: Well. WHY ARE YOU MAKING ME CHOOSE. But I’ll go with…May. I mean, she’s a badass. 
  • Fun fact about yourself/something you’d like to share: It took me a while, but I’m finally doing the thing I’ve always wanted to do - Just earned my MD and I’m being a doctor! I’m sorry I haven’t been around much reading and commenting - the start of residency has been…a transition! 
  • Recommend one thing (book, movie, show, etc.): Um. Hm…Since we’re loving a couple on a superhero show, I’m going to go old school rec: LOIS AND CLARK AND THE NEW ADVENTURES OF SUPERMAN. They were legit probably my first ship ever - that Lois and Clark, aka Teri Hatcher and Dean Cain, were just THE BEST. Oh, I could gush about them all day. It was a fun and campy show but I really liked that they explored Lois and Clark being a couple vs. Lois and Superman, you know? Just, it all worked. 

I’m just a girl with a shippy heart, what can I say. Anyhoo, hi everyone!

  • Personality Type: (Hogwarts House/MBTI type/Zodiac/Character alignment—whichever thing you like to identify with, if any!) Gryffindor (I always thought I was Hufflepuff but then I took the pottermore test and yeah, Gryffindor) / ISFJ / Virgo / Neutral Good (Just find out about this one ! )
  • What do you love most about FS?: That they would do anything for the people they love. I don’t just mean what Fitz would do for Jemma and what Jemma would do for Fitz, I mean that’s beautiful and Epic but what I love is that they also care about their friends, they went through so much in S1 when they were just a team of strangers and yet, they just would do anything for their friends and you can see how heartbroken they are to lose some team members (such as Trip, Lincoln, Huntingbird…). So Yeah, I’d say that what I love the most is their big hearts (and brains)
  • Favorite FS moment: Oooh… Last year I would’ve answered the Fake fight in Afterlife (2x16) but now I can say that Hot Potato Soup is probably one of my favorite FS Episode and the “Maybe I’m stuck In a loop” “You became the most open, loyal, caring person i’ve ever met […]It’s why I fell in love with you. Who you really are that’s not programming, it’s way beyond that”
  • Favorite non-FS character: … Lance Hunter (God that was so tough ! Just one ? Really ?)
