no nonsense fitz

sometimes I think about how in the very first episode Jemma Simmons shouted “why are you making nonsense” at Leopold Fitz, not only avoiding the word ‘stupid’ but also putting the value judgment on the thing he was making rather than him, and I get emotional

you take a lover who looks at you like maybe you are magic.

THE SCENE.
  • Jemma: One of these days, we'll find something out in space that's magnificent, right? Not trying to infect us or kill us like Hive.
  • Fitz: What's Hive? Couldn't even get off a desert planet without us, so, we'll sort him out.
  • Jemma: *leaning her head on Fitz's shoulder* I just want to help our friends.
  • Fitz: I know.
  • *FITZSIMMONS KISSING*
  • Fitz: *breaking away from the kiss* Sorry. Uh, sorry. I know everything's well and starting over and I didn't mean to push too fast.
  • Jemma: *laughing* Too fast? Fitz, it's been 10 years. We can't waste any more time.
  • Fitz: Really? Cause I thought that-
  • Jemma: *interrupting him* Really! And since we're cursed, or whatever nonsense-
  • Fitz: Oh I said that one time!
  • *simultaneously*
  • Jemma: You and your fourth dimension idea that we can't change fate.
  • Fitz: And for the record actually, today is more evidence that the cosmos is against us.
  • Jemma: I'm tired of seeing our friends ripped apart from each other. That can't happen to us again, I won't let it.
  • Fitz: Then we won't let it. Who needs space? Cause I've got something magnificent right here.
  • Jemma: *world's cutest smile* *goes in for a kiss*
  • Fitz: *turning away* A picture. Of space.
  • Jemma: *world's cutest laugh*
  • Fitz: One of my prized possessions, that is. And I don't know why it makes a significance-
  • Jemma: Okay.
  • Fitz: *incoherent continued mumbling as Jemma jumps on top of him*

So pissed off about this nonsense of people “giving” Fitz his anger towards Ward. like, no, you don’t get to “give” victims their anger, because it was your fav that hurt. So many people are crying for Ward to get help, which he does obviously need, but in the framing of the show,  the people who need help are the people he hurt. He does not deserve the kindness or support of the team. Ward took Skye’s affection and trust in him and used it against her, he tried to use his issue to manipulate her. That is abusive and she does not owe him shit. But that is a meta for another day.

When news came that Ward had turned, Fitz was the one who clung to the idea of Ward being a good guy. Fitz was the one who paid the physical price of Ward’s betrayal, a payment forced on everyone else who has to watch their friend suffer and no be able to do anything about it. Fitz didn’t just lose his communication skills, he lost his sense of self. He thinks he’s damaged, he hallucinates his best friend as a way to cope with his new disability. He isolates himself, he feels like he’s useless to the team, that they feel like he’s useless. He’s lost his trust in his team and in himself.

Fitz had the right to be angry, and regardless of the morality right or wrong of it, it’s understandable for Fitz to want Ward to see what he’d done, to feel the physical pain Fitz did. Because Fitz has lost something he can’t get back, he’s trying to adjust to the fact that his brain doesn’t work the way it once did and he’s got to learn new ways to operate in the world, around the people who love him but don’t know how to deal with him. Fitz’s pain and rage are justified. Stop pretending that Ward doesn’t deserve to see that, or have it turned against him. He betrayed his friends and people got hurt, just because he didn’t put a bullet in their brains does not excuse what he did. It does not negate the fact that Fitz was a victim of Ward’s actions, that the one who defended his innocence is the one who bears the most visible repercussions of the actions.

In the AOS fandom we don't say I love you, we say "I made you a prosciutto and buffalo mozzarella sandwich with just a hint of homemade pesto aïoli" and I think thats beautiful.

We also say: 

  • Be safe.
  • You’re the hero. 
  • You’re my best friend in the whole world. 
  • You’re more than that. 
  • Maybe there is. 
  • Me and you. Maybe we could eat somewhere else, you know. Somewhere nice.
  • THIS IS NO TIME FOR CHILDISH NONSENSE. 
  • Ohhhhhhh, Fitz.
