“So if they can get over this hump, it seems like there might be a happy ending in their future. But there’s still a lot in the mix, a lot of hurt feelings and a lot of pain. Whether or not they’re the ones who can help each other is a question we’ll have to answer next year…” Jed Whedon X
So before the finale aired, Jed said that both of Fitzsimmons
are in a lot of pain, and we would find out next year if they will be the ones
who are able to help each other recover. But then in this post-finale interview
with EW, Jed says this about Fitz and Jemma:
“If he’s ever
going to get over it, she’s the only one who can help him.”X
So in other words -
yes. Jed has pretty much confirmed here that Fitz and Jemma are the only people
who can help each other. And I’ve been thinking about this a lot and I’ve
realised that he’s absolutely right. And it is giving me a lot of hope. Let me explain. Under the cut for length:
We know that EZRA would be in JAIL and that it would make him break up with Aria.
There has always been someone watching, manipulating. This is Aria. She was always trying to be seen, be different with her different colored hair, but she’s always kind of been just the extra girl, right? Alison was the ring leader, followed by Spencer, Emily and Hanna were they girls Ali would manipulate, with Spencer watching, always wanting to steal the crown. Aria was just there. Nobody was ever shitty to her. She only existed alongside of the others.
So, Alison is ‘killed’ and Aria, Mike and their parents go to Iceland. Because Aria was losing her sanity. She needed Alison to keep her occupied, to make her feel like she was apart of something. Byron and Ella decide to give Aria a fresh start, to make new friends and maybe get treatment for her mental illness. A year later, they move back to Rosewood, and at the bar, she orders a burger when she’s a vegetarian. This is her way of breaking the rules, feeling devious. She read about Ezra in Alison’s diary she stole from her room before she left for Iceland. Then Ezra begins his book, Aria finds him at the bar and she mimicks Ali, says she’s in college, gets close to Ezra and they make out in the bathroom.
They are both manipulating each other at this point. Ezra is using Aria for his book and she is using him to start something. She needs to get Hanna, Spencer and Emily back. She remembers what Alison says about each of them having secrets and that that keeps them close. She targets Spencer with a friend she met in Iceland, Wren. Wren agrees to help Aria and gets close to her sister, so she can recreate the kiss from Ian with Wren. Then she gets a mutual friend, Maya to flirt with Emily, recreating Emison’s relationship. Then she uses Hanna’s eating disorder against her, telling her she better be careful shoplifting because “prison food makes you fat”. These are all things that were in Alison’s diary. But Aria’s only secret was that her father was having an affair and she knew about it. Aria’s first A text isn’t about something that was her father’s doing ,but her own. And A makes it clear to include Aria’s father in the text. But this is all Mona.
So Aria meets Wren in Iceland, they bond and Wren agreed to help her get her friends back, and so he goes and finds Melissa, gets into a relationship with her then kisses Spencer, his part is done. Aria texts Jason and asks if he has any bisexual/lesbian friends, says she needs to set her friend up on a date.

So Aria and Ezra are both playing a game, but she wants to make it interesting. She wants to drag Mona into this. Somehow, Aria sets up the game for Mona, letting her think it was her idea to become -A. Wren goes to Mona to help her, giving her Ali’s diary that Aria didn’t need anymore, helps setting her up as A. Tells her about Aria’s affair with their teacher. Aria gets the first A text, then Wren tells Mona about how he kissed Spencer and Mona knows that, from the diary, Spencer has kissed one of Melissa’s boyfriends before. He also lets her know the new girl in Ali’s house and Emily were kissing.
Photo: We know Wren was helping Mona, but was working for someone else, perhaps Aria?
This post could be longer, but Wren is making sure Mona is carrying on as A, and Aria is living her life with her friends, enjoying the ride and knowing that Mona is A.
So, Aria knows that Ezra has been stalking these girls for YEARS to write a book, something that can land him in prison. (I mean, stalking underage girls? Or anyone in general? That’s fucked up man.)
And Ezra would feel like an idiot if he knew Aria was playing him this entire time just to help fill the hole in her life.
And how does Charlotte fit into all of this? I don’t fucking know. BUT.
A.D. has seen Aria’s file. They know she is a genius and THAT is why she was asked to join the “winning team”. Because she’s smart, and wants NEEDS to be a part of something.
Ezra would choose Nicole because of Aria’s actions and Nicole would be visiting him in Prison for stalking the girls.
MIC DROP. IT’S ONE THIRTY AM AND I HOPE THIS MADE SENSE.
I still haven’t made up my mind about a lot of things regarding the possibilities for season 5 (basically, the only thing I’m sure about is: Coulson appears to be in space.) But I needed more Fitzsimmons trying to move forward, so… this happened.
Based on this prompt list, this drabble collection will feature canon complaint drabbles matching up to each of the prompts.
Chapter one - stay over
post season four spec fic
Jemma had been waiting on the loading deck for Daisy, Elena and Coulson's’ ship to return for almost an hour. She was starting to worry, the fear of being separated from her friends once again crawling up her neck. There was also the fear that if Jemma’s bunk buddy didn’t return by bed time she would have to sleep in the bunk on her own and she wasn’t up for doing that.
She felt safe in their bunk most nights, even with the lights all the way off. She felt safe with Daisy’s low voice lulling her to sleep. Daisy didn’t feel safe sleeping alone either, which made them the perfect pair.
Jemma was so distracted by her own fear that she didn’t hear the door open behind her.
“Hey,” His Scottish accent pulled her from her thoughts, his arm sliding over her shoulder as he sat down next to her.
“Fitz!” She whispered, brushing his arm off her shoulders “They have cameras in here.”
“They’re probably not watching, or caring,” He shrugged off her fears “Hey, we just got word from Coulson that they’ve had some problems with the ship and they’re not gonna be back till morning.”
Jemma sighed, her face falling “Oh.”
“What’s wrong?” Fitz asked. He angled his body towards hers, his hand finding hers.
“It’s just that… you know that I don’t like sleeping alone. And with Daisy gone…”
Jemma trailed off, suddenly very focused on Fitz fingers tangled with hers. Swords stupid version of section 17 meant that she and Fitz couldn’t share a bunk, or be public about their relationship at all. She had had many hushed conversations with Elena about this, listing all the reason why it was stupid.
Just because they were exempt in shield doesn’t mean they are here. No fraternization. No exceptions.
“You could stay over with me,” Fitz suggested, “I’m sure Mack won’t mind.”
“But Fitz, if we get caught…”
He shrugged “Screw them. I want you to feel safe, If that means breaking a few rules then so be it.”
They stopped in Jemma’s room first, gathering her pj’s and a change of clothes in one of her sword standard backpacks. Lucky for them it was late enough at night that they could walk through the hallways undetected, and slip quietly into Fitz and Mack’s shared bunk.
“Hey Mack,” Fitz whispered once the door had closed behind them.
“Hey bro,” Mack looked up from his tablet “Hey Jemma.”
She smiled at him, lifting a hand in greeting,
“You mind if she stays?” Fitz asked, “She doesn’t want to sleep alone.”
Ezra is such a master manipulator and Aria can’t see shit…
I’m watching 7x15 and the way he talks with Aria while they’re sitting on the couch I just want to throat check him because he sound like he’s making up a story… It’s either like he’s talking to her like a child or he’s just making everything up while he’s talking to her…
@andlatitude asked “Fitzward + ‘Apparently I kept repeating “I have a To-Do list this summer and he’s on it”’”
Leo didn’t make a habit of waking up next to people that he barely
He also didn’t make a habit of waking up next to people that he more-than-barely
knew, without having a real memory of how he got there.
And he really didn’t make a habit of drinking so much that when he
woke up in bed next to the guy he’d had a crush on for the last few
weeks, he didn’t remember how he’d gotten there.
First things first…
Lifting the bed sheet, Leo sighed in relief. He was still wearing
clothes. Granted, those clothes were his boxer-briefs, and a t-shirt
that definitely didn’t belong to him, but he didn’t usually get
dressed after sex. Not this much, anyway. It helped that, when he
looked at Grant, Leo realized that the other Shield Insurance call
center worker was wearing a pair of sleep pants.
