The parallel I didn’t know I needed. (FitzSimmons + La La Land)


A recepção que você teve ao entrar na minha vida não foi uma das melhores, mesmo você me fazendo muito bem e me dando toda atenção necessária, eu insistia em te mandar embora. Naquele momento eu não fazia ideia do quão importante você seria pra mim e o quanto eu precisaria da sua atenção.

Written for @jewishfitz, @leopoldjamesfitzs, and @agent-hayley who all requested FS + I think you’re beautiful. This was originally going to be a drabble, but I couldn’t get this idea out of my head and decided to write a full length fic. I hope you enjoy! 

Huge thanks to @consoledacup for beta reading! <3

He couldn’t keep his eyes off this woman that night, so it made sense he would give all of his attention to her now. It wasn’t until the clapping filled the air that he turned toward the stage, giving Jemma an enthusiastic thumbs-up even though he clearly wasn’t paying any attention to her performance.
