gotta-get-up-and-try

let’s see what we’ve got (let’s give it a shot)

for the blind date section of my femslash feb trope bingo card, FBI Agent Daisy Johnson gets setup with lab technician Jemma Simmons and it goes far better than she expected. (also here on ao3) (also open for prompts for femslash feb~)

“There you are.” Mack’s voice echoed in the mostly empty gym save for where Daisy stood in front of a punching bag, “You know I was hoping you wouldn’t be down here but I guess I should have figured it anyway.”

“I just wanted to work out some steam after our last case.” Daisy sighed and rolled her shoulders back to try to loosen them up.

“You gotta get out of here, partner,” Mack said, crossing his arms and leaning against the wall, “Take in the sights of the city, we hardly get the time to while we’re chasing down the bad guys.”

“Well that is our job.” Daisy retorted with an amused grin, “To serve and protect and all that.”

“I know you know that’s the cop’s motto, not FBI. And even we need a break. Go on a date or two.” Mack stared at her knowingly, “You know I get out of here any time I get a chance, work on my car. Take Joey out when our schedules match up.”

“Hey I play games with you when we’re on breaks.”

“I mean have a life outside this place, you’re gonna let it consume you if you’re not careful.”

Daisy made a face at him, “You sound like Coulson.”

“Well boss might have a point. Ever since that old partner of yours turned crooked you’ve been non-stop.” Mack gave up going around it subtly, opting for the blunt truth.

She sighed, her head dropping a little, “That obvious hunh?”

“A little.”

“All right, what did you have in mind?” Daisy relented.

Mack grinned at her, “Bobbi has a friend that works in the labs she thinks you might like.”

“A lab rat? You’re setting me up on a date with a lab rat?” Daisy sounded incredulous. “What would I talk to them about? I don’t know science-y stuff. That’s why we have lab guys.”

“Think of it as a chance to learn more then.” Mack shrugged.

Daisy groaned, “Mack if I get lectured about science on a date…”

“So you’ll go?”

“Yeah, I guess I don’t have much a choice considering you’ll pester me until I do.”

“I’ll tell her you said yes then,” Mack walked over, clapping her on the shoulder, “I don’t think you’ll regret this Daisy.”

“I hope not…”

Brendon Urie’s Top Frank Sinatra Tracks: See His Playlist!

“Witchcraft”:“The first time I heard it, a cartoon sword was singing it in Who Framed Roger Rabbit. I have loved it ever since.”

“The Curse of an Aching Heart”: “This one comes out of the gate with guns blazing. I dig the intense pace combined with Sinatra’s casual tone.”

“Nice ’n’ Easy”: “It’s a super mellow tune. This is my go-to song when I’m singing in the shower. You’re picturing it right now, huh?”

“That’s Life”: “It reminds you that shit happens and you just gotta get back up and try, try again. And that organ is awesome.”

“It Was a Very Good Year”: “The melodies are haunting; the imagery is vivid and relatable. It makes me incredibly fond of the past, yet excited for the future.”

“The Good Life”: “I fell in love with this song years ago and decided I’d try a 30-second cover of it with just vocals. I liked how it came out, so maybe I’ll just cover this one for real someday.”

“My Way”: “Arguably the most masterful Sinatra song. Equal parts proud, nostalgic and content.”

Currently I’ve met a wall in this maze of life. I am claustrophobic as I sense the walls closing in on me like the Taunting words of elders wanting me to finish undergrad. The bushes are poking me with their hidden branches like my inner demon with what I can accomplish but Haven’t yet. The skies are getting darker as time doesn’t stop. The warm wind fills my lungs with dust, and I fall I’ll. The ground is getting hotter as jealousy boils when I see those who have their life settled, graduated, work, a significant other and happy. I see ghosts reminding me of what failure will mean. And then I see the faint light straight ahead like the North Star. It’s there, ready to guide me, but it might get tired of waiting and leave.

I have to pucker up the courage to fight off my low self esteem and boost my way to the top, to my shining star, to a happier me.

Where there is desire : there is gonna be a flame ; when there is a flame…someone’s gonna get burnt. But just because it burns, doesn’t mean you gonna die, you’ve gotta get up, and try, and try…and try. Because…if you’re attentive enough to have found the marvel of pure love, a very quick olhar will make you realize that big signs yell in your direction : “go there, close your eyes, offer your lips and stay here forever : everything’s gonna be ok”. Bonne nuit Petit Poucet.
