Like a Robot in Love
Coda (crack) fic for episode 4x14. Thanks to @bigfunnywords for being an awesome beta/enabler/friend!
“Are you done yet? I’m starving.” Jemma said as she flipped her folder shut, before rolling her head from side to side, her neck aching from her being hunched over a microscope all morning.
“Do you want me to pick up something for you? Caesar salad, extra dressing?” Fitz’s eager voice sounded from the other end of the lab. “Or I could massage your neck, if you–”
“She’s fine,” Fitz snapped, irritation plainly audible in his voice. “Go back to your box.”
Jemma laid a placating hand on his forearm as she tutted, “Don’t be rude. He’s only trying to help.”
The other Fitz, the one who wasn’t flesh and blood but could feel pain and joy and heartache and who loved her all the same, walked up to them and handed Jemma her purse, pointedly ignoring Fitz’s intense glare.
