otp: pieces solving a puzzle

the rom-com au: During a weekend bender in Vegas, our agents engage in self-destructive, drunken shenanigans that lead to two unplanned pregnancies, a wedding officiated by a Captain America impersonator, and a furious Nick Fury. With their jobs on the line, Skye and Ward are forced to finally get along while learning how to do this parenting thing.

featuring: drunken shenanigans by idiot spies, language, violence, nudity; all the classic things that make an adult rom-com amazing.

pairings: Skyeward, Huntingbird, Fitzsimmons, Clintasha, Philinda with Kate,Trip, Mack, & Fury

She closes her eyes, takes in a deep breath, and then opens the door. When her eyes open, May bites her lip, watching him sleep. 

The gift in her hand feels heavy.

For once, Jemma is sleeping in her own bunk. But maybe this isn’t for the best - May stands beside his bed, but something about the stillness is unnerving in the darkness.

He’s sleeping. Dreaming. Screaming, silently, probably.

May places the mix on the desk, keeping her hands steady. She wants Fitz to flip onto his stomach, eyes squinted, fingers twitching in the fabric of his pillow. Instead, he breathes quietly. Placing a gentle hand over his, she glides her thumb over his palm. For a single moment, maybe Fitz relaxes.

And then May withdraws and blinks away a yawn. 

“May?” The corners of her mouth quirk upwards at Trip, blanket and pillow under his arm.

“Left him something - it’s helped me in the past. Music.” Trip’s dazed confused melts into understanding. May nods, watching the slow rise and fall of a man in too deep into his own head. “Just a reminder he’s not alone.”

May doesn’t wait for Trip to smile, because it’s late and she needs to be up early. 

(Later, she’ll hear the music from his room and she’ll smile and maybe everything gets a little bit brighter.)

We need Skye. And that’s all you e v e r  w a n t e d, isn’t it?

ok so imagine something goes wrong later in this season of aos (centipede or somethin idk) and the team has to be temporarily disbanded because shield needs each of them elsewhere

fitzsimmons are taken to work in one of the huge shield labs (alongside bruce and tony cos they’re called in, it’s that big an emergency), may and coulson team up with fury and hill to plan and run a huge infiltration of their enemy base. everyone thinks that ward is gonna be pulled back into the specialist ranks to work the kind of jobs he used to and skye starts freaking out because she’s barely an agent, what the hell are they gonna do with her

and then hill calls her over going “you’re being briefed for your op at 0800 tomorrow morning, your partner has the file containing mission info.”
skye’s like “wait, what - my partner?" 
hill is like ”…yeah…? agent ward?“
skye is super confused and goes "since when has ward been my partner? isn’t he a specialist? i’m still in training.”
hill just shrugs and says “all i know is that as soon as it was announced that your team would be separated and called back to base, ward put in a request to be partnered with you.

Catching up on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

GRANT WARD.

We’re still not sure why Skye is crying in the bathroom while you’re out strutting like ANTM in a hallway, but if it’s your fault, I swear to goodness…

Nobody makes Skye cry like that and gets away with it.

But, basically, this show has ruined my life.

I CAME HERE BECAUSE I THOUGHT THIS WOULD BE A SHOW ABOUT MARVEL HEROES AND I WAS CURIOUS ABOUT COULSON BEING ALIVE AND MAYBE I WAS HOPING THAT TOM HIDDLESTON OR ANY OF THE TWO CHRIS OR TONY MOTHERFUCKING STARK WILL GUEST STAR BUT INSTEAD YOU STOLE MY HEART, RIPPED IT OUT, ATE IT IN FRONT OF ME THEN PROCEEDED TO DINE ON MY SOUL FOR DESSERT. 

Fix this, Producers.

Fix this.
