shield academy

Not-so-first impression, and yet...

The first actual field job that Sharon Carter has as a student of SHIELD Academy is posing at the Smithsonian’s Cap exhibit as a security guard. Well, actually, she didn’t get the job, instead she volunteered, firstly, because fuckton of credit points to get out of the equation, and secondly, because she wanted to do some actual field work without the actual danger of field works first. It was very unlikely that anything major or serious issue would happen in the heart of Washington DC without anyone knowing it beforehand.

And she loved the exhibit. Aunt Peggy and Granddady Michael took her there as a kid more than she was able to count, until she could recite the texts by heart, and it was always among her favourite places. The dim lights of the movie rooms, the bright flashes of the reflectors on the most important items, the whole scene fuzzing with motion and energy was kind of magical.

As an adult, and as a wannabe SHIELD agent, it was mostly frustrating. The location was a tactical nightmare. The constant movement of the guests were nearly untraceable. The weapons of an ordinary museum guard were nothing compared to the ones which would have been needed if some maniac really would decided to cause trouble here.

And yet, she loved her job. It was just perfect for a wannabe agent. She played all day during her shifts. She liked guessing about the life of the visitors - where were they from, why did they come here, how did they live, what were their familial and financial status and so on -, and anytime someone talked to her, she had the mental challenge to guide the conversation until they literally told her whether she guessed the information right or wrong. She was sure her professors would be very proud of her success rate (and some of them would be ashamed for the method of her practice).

One of the other security guards, the senior named Mr. Lee, found out anyway. He approached her one day, sharing their time together at the same room (though it was actually not allowed to chill with the others during shifts, if she looked at the job description correctly), and questioned out her result on a guest. She was so shocked that she actually answered. They sorta became friends from that moment, playing together - discussing who to figure out next through their radio and then trying to force some answers from the guests faking it as casual and polite conversations.

She considered it the best year of her life yet - but she usually considered them as such, so it didn’t meant much.

No one in her family knew about this job, so she was genuinely surprised (and a bit startled) when she saw Aunt Peggy walking into the exhibit one day. Sharon considered to say hi to her, but then decided against it. It was a great opportunity to test her skills anyway - hiding in a public place from someone who knew her more than most of the people seemed like a great challenge. Considering the fact that this person also happened to be the best spy this country ever had, made the task almost impossible.

Almost. Never to say Sharon wasn’t confident.

She shifted his center of gravity, half turning around to avoid facing Peggy, shaking her hair in front of her face. She was glad they didn’t yet met this year personally, so her aunt probably didn’t know she was a brunette now. She slowed down her breathing and made her movements more rough.

Peggy took her time looking at the pictures painted on the walls, and passed the room without looking at her niece. Sharon felt her aunt’s gaze glied through her once, but nothing showed that Peggy actually saw her.

Naturally, Sharon had to push her luck. She followed Peggy.

It was strange, going after someone, chasing a person like a dog that got scent, staying behind and in the shadows at the same time. She would lie if she’d deny that she enjoyed it.

Until she didn’t. Until she first saw the tears rolling down on her aunt’s face.

Sharon’s breath was taken like if she was hit hard in her gut. She never, ever saw Peggy vulnerable before, but at that particular moment - when she looked at the photo of Steve Rogers, pre-serum, still skinny but determination burning in his eyes so brightly even the camera lenses caught it  for eternity -, Margaret Carter was not a hero. Her pain and loss was so visible that Sharon had to look away, and didn’t dare to move for a long time.

When she looked up, Peggy was gone, and she didn’t follow her anymore.

She wished to know what happened. No, that was not true. If she was honest with herself, she knew.

Sharon wished she could know the man that had such a huge impact on her personal hero. For the first time in her life she wished she could meet not Captain America, but Steve Rogers.

(Nine years later, as a neighbour of the guy, she wanna laugh about the memory, though her eyes get a bit teary because of it.)

go (please stay)

forever and ever ago @chinesebakery requested a drunk!fitz mirror to this drabble, and here it is! Academy era. Not angsty but not fluffy.


“Thank you, officer, I can handle it from here.”

“I really am sorry, ma’am,” the patrolwoman repeated, eyeing Jemma’s pajamas and the blanket lines on her bare arms. “But he said he has no friends and your name was on the roster next to his—”

“I’ll make sure he doesn’t destroy anything else,” Jemma confirmed grimly, then shut the lab door behind her.

Fitz blinked up blearily from the lab desk they’d only been sharing a few weeks. His curls were smooshed on one side, like he too had been trying to sleep, though according to the campus patrol that had roused Jemma from her dorm room, he’d been here at least an hour, “improving” upon the other students’ experiments, in his own words.

“What’re you doing here?” he mumbled, a bright pink blush blooming across his cheekbones. He shook his head and turned back to the model in his hands – or rather, the remnants of what had once been a model before he’d handily dismantled it. “You shouldn’t be here.”

“You’re right, Fitzy, I should be sleeping.” She ignored his scowl at the new nickname. “We should all be sleeping. Our first demonstration is on Thursday, or did you forget?”

“Didn’t forget.”

“But you thought you’d celebrate with a drink, or five?” She gestured to the empty glass tumbler on the counter.

He shook his head, sharp enough she was surprised not to hear something crack. “Not celebrating.”

Jemma groaned. How the greatest minds could be reduced to a few syllables through alcohol or the presence of a shapely derriere – “Do you want to talk about it?”

This time Fitz actually laughed, a derisive scoff matched with a smug smirk he’d never have chanced with her sober. “With you?”

“Yes, with me, Fitz. You’re drinking alone on a schoolnight and breaking into private school property – you should’ve called me.”

“Didn’t want to.”

Jemma had had about enough. She didn’t need to be friends with Leopold Effing Fitz to graduate: she only needed him to pass this lab, which would require several more months of barely tolerating each other and stepping on each other’s toes, but she could do it.

“You know what?” she snapped, stepping right up to Fitz and flicking his floppy hair with one finger, “You know what the cop said? ‘He has no friends.’ And that’s true! It’s not even a pathetic self-pitying exaggeration. Because anytime anyone tries to help you or get close to you, you do this! You act all sullen and self-sufficient and you just drive everyone away!”

He was staring at her, mouth slightly ajar, and the instant she stopped speaking Jemma felt shame wrap around her.

“Fitz, that wasn’t—”

“I think you should go,” he cut her off, turning away and sitting heavily so she could see only his back and the uneven way he was breathing.

I’m just like you, she wanted to say, would’ve said if she were a different person, the type of person to reach out and touch his back and let him cry like he was so obviously about to do. I can’t do this either.

Instead, she walked away towards the door, twisting the tie of her pajama bottoms between tense fingers.

She had just opened the door when behind her, Fitz whispered, “Please stay.”

Imaginary shows: “Marvel’s Ghost Rider” (version 2.0)

So let’s say, hypothetically, AOS gets one more season to finish off their remaining storylines. All of a sudden, Marvel TV announces a spin-off featuring Robbie Reyes. Here’s my fancast:

MAIN CAST

1) Gabriel Luna as Robbie Reyes / Ghost Rider 

Originally posted by daisyiris

2) Lorenzo James Henrie as Gabriel “Gabe” Reyes 

(AN: So I learned recently that Lorenzo is Italian. Shame on you AOS, now I feel dirty for keeping him on here)

3) Chloe Bennet as Daisy Johnson / Quake: Back due to popular demand from the fans, Chloe signed on for the Ghost Rider show. Daisy’s in-story reason is that SHIELD assigned her to watch over Ghost Rider since he returned, a task that she immediately accepted. I’d imagine her and Robbie’s relationship to be similar to Angel and Cordelia. 

As for the other main AOS cast, I’d imagine there’d be 1-2 episode guest roles for them but nothing too heavy. I can see Mack coming on the show in a recurring role but Fitz, Simmons, Coulson, and May, not so much. Maybe just to say hi to Daisy.

4) Genesis Rodriguez as Lisa Ortega: A child prodigy / law school student who befriends Robbie after he stops a group of thugs trying to rob her. She eventually becomes an integral member to Team Rider and is Robbie’s main love interest (the Iris West to his Barry Allen). 

Or is she? I’d imagine sometime around season 2 or 3, the writers would set up a love triangle between Lisa, Robbie, and Daisy. That’d be fun.

5) Becky G as Azucena Gonzalez: A high school student and Gabe Reyes’ best friend. She is a bit of a smart-ass but is vocal in her support of Ghost Rider.

6) Martin Sensmeier as Detective William Talltrees / Red Wolf: A LAPD detective who is assigned to investigating the Ghost Rider killings. He eventually finds out that Robbie is the Ghost Rider but has a change of heart when he realizes that GR is fighting only the wicked.

In season 2, William quits the LAPD and becomes the vigilante known as “Red Wolf”. As Red Wolf, he joins Team Rider.

7) Sophie Wu as Ruby Minh Tran: A half-Scottish, half-Chinese sorceress who hails from the London Sanctum Sanctorum. She is sent to Los Angeles by Doctor Strange in order to monitor the Ghost Rider. 

A fun little subplot that I came up with is that Ruby reveals to Daisy that she was Fitz’s first girlfriend. They broke up around the time he left for the SHIELD Academy and she left for “cooking school” (magic training). 

When Daisy asks for any funny memories with Fitz, Ruby says, “He tried complimenting me on our first date. I think he wanted to say I had a nice face but he ended up saying I have nice feet”. (that’s a reference to ‘The Fades’, a BBC show that featured Iain and Sophie)

8) Ryan Guzman as James Ramirez: A rookie sorcerer who hails from the New York Sanctum Sanctorum. He is assigned to work with Ruby Minh Tran and the two immediately clash (she’s a bit more sassy and fun, he’s a bit more stern and serious).

So Ramirez and Tran are basically the Fitz and Simmons of the Ghost Rider show. But instead of science, it’s magic. And instead of falling in love, they can’t stand each other.

9) Diego Boneta as Hector Morrow: Robbie’s cousin and Eli’s son. He despises Robbie and Gabe and has a bit of an arrogant streak. But as the series goes on, he eventually redeems himself by joining Team Rider.

So…the Draco Malfoy of the show.

10) Emily Rios as Alejandra Jones / The Punished Rider: A woman who was a victim of human trafficking. She eventually escapes her captors, who are all eventually killed by Ghost Rider. Inspired by GR, she joins Team Rider. She’s recognized as the ‘hardcore’ member of the team because of her sheer hatred of all criminals. 

In season two, she takes on a Spirit of Vengeance separate from Robbie’s. It’s this moment that Team Rider realizes there can be more than one Ghost Rider.

To distinguish herself from Robbie, she nicknames herself ‘The Punished Rider’.

11) Santiago Cabrera as Dr. Javier Ybanez: Robbie’s best friend from childhood who grew up to be an oncologist. He is a member of Team Rider, offering Robbie his medical advice.

NOTE: Santiago is only on the main cast for season one. Javier is killed by Blackheart in the season finale.

RECURRING CAST (BUT PROMOTED TO MAIN CAST IN SEASON TWO)

1) Steven Yeun as Hannibal King: A private investigator who was turned into a vampire. He is now a vampire hunter, seeking to prevent others from suffering the same fate. 

Hannibal King’s appearance is meant to foreshadow the appearance of Blade. 

Originally posted by sassmastersarahkv

2) Emilio Rivera as  Lt. Michael Badilino / Vengeance: An army veteran who initially joins Team Rider as an ally. He eventually leaves the team due to growing tensions with Robbie. Robbie has a strict no-killing-of-innocents rule while Michael didn’t care for collateral damage.

Michael eventually comes across a Spirit of Vengeance and becomes a rogue Ghost Rider, simply named “Vengeance”. Although not a true villain, Michael ends up becoming one of Robbie’s main enemies of the show.

RECURRING ONLY

1) Walton Goggins as Johnny Blaze / Ghost Rider 1: The original Ghost Rider. Johnny returns to Robbie’s life and acts as his mentor from time-to-time. 

Originally posted by sextmen

2) Naoko Mori as Roxanne Simpson-Blaze: An investigative journalist and Johnny Blaze’s wife.

Originally posted by burntlikethesun

3) Burn Gorman as Mephisto: Arguably the main antagonist of the whole series. He’s the Devil, nuff said. 

Originally posted by missanthropicprinciple

4) Reg E. Cathey as Carter Slade / The Phantom Rider: One of the first few people to take on the Rider. He was Johnny’s mentor and ends up becoming Robbie’s mentor as well.

BIG BADS (ONLY GOING UP TO SEASON THREE) 

1) Dylan O’Brien as Blackheart: Main antagonist of season one. He is a powerful demon and one of Mephisto’s sons. Blackheart comes to Earth, seeking to overthrow his father. 

During his rampage, he manages to kill Javier Ybanez, which led to Robbie losing his mind and destroying Blackheart with the full power of the Ghost Rider. 

Originally posted by sarcasticallystilinski

2) Emily Kinney as Zadkiel: Main antagonist of season two. She used to be an archangel before being tossed out of heaven for attempting to usurp God. Desperate for payback, Zadkiel went after the Ghost Riders on Earth, seeking to obtain their power in order to be powerful enough to return to heaven and defeat God. 

Zadkiel was eventually defeated in combat by Robbie, Michael, and Alejandra. To make sure she wouldn’t return, she was dragged to hell by Mephisto.

3) Kate Micucci as Andrea Wallace / Jose Zuniga as Eli Morrow (visions and voice only): Main antagonist of season three. Andrea Wallace was a struggling comedian who bothered no one. One day, while walking home from a gig, she becomes an accidental victim of a gang shooting. Just minutes later, she is resurrected after accepting an offer from a strange spirit who told her he would help her get revenge. The spirit was later revealed to be Eli Morrow, who also wants revenge on Robbie.

So Andrea ends up becoming the host for Eli. She’s still there but slowly loses her mind due to Eli’s influence. Like in the comics, due to Eli’s spirit, Andrea can transform into a being similar to the Ghost Rider. Because of this, Team Rider nicknames her “Fool’s Rider” since even though she looks and acts like a Ghost Rider, she’s technically not one since her powers didn’t come from a Spirit of Vengeance. 

Andrea is eventually defeated by Robbie, who uses his Penance Stare to punish Eli’s soul. Although free from Eli, Andrea is quaked to death by Daisy in order to make sure Eli doesn’t return. This is the moment where Daisy starts becoming more of an anti-hero.

Everyone always says “Study like Hermione Granger” or “Study like Rory Gilmore.” While these are great people to look up to, why does no one ever say “Study like Jemma Simmons?” She not only attended SHIELD Academy and finished top of her class, she went on to be a fantastic scientist and can take care of herself in the field. She is smart and strong. So I have decided to create the hashtag (it’s never been used, I checked) #studylikejemmasimmons. If you want to use it, please do!! If you have no clue who I’m talking about, I would seriously recommend watching Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

Side By Side - a daemon Academy AU

Additional Tags: Academy Era, Alternate Universe - Daemons, Enemies to Friends to Lovers, POV Jemma Simmons, Daemon Touching, Light Angst, Pining, Slow Burn, Best FriendsFluff, RomanceFirst DatesMaking OutAwkward Sexual Situations, Sexual Content 

Summary: When Jemma Simmons and her lion daemon arrive at SHIELD Academy, they don’t really find anyone that interesting - except, that is, for Leopold Fitz.

From this chapter:


They took a detour around the edge of campus to get back to their dormitory, ambling beneath the streetlights hand-in-hand. Caedmon trotted ahead of them, proudly bearing Sarama on his head – and occasionally feinting that he’d drop her. (He never did.)

As they strolled together, Jemma could feel some indefinable energy crackling between the two of them, each sneaking glances at the other as they enjoyed the post-dinner walk. At last, she just couldn’t stand it anymore and found herself tugging Fitz against her for a kiss. By her estimation, it had been at least a couple hours since they’d kissed, and that was unacceptable. His expression when he realized what she was doing was the purest form of excitement she could remember seeing on him, and he hummed happily against her lips, fingers spreading out wide against her back.

“You’re adorable,” she murmured, brushing their noses together and then stretching up for another kiss. Everything about the night felt enchanted, with pools of streetlamp light dotting the path before them and crickets buzzing in the bushes. Jemma had been a scientist for as long as she could remember having conscious thought, but she couldn’t help loving the idea of romance, too, and feeling that everything about the moment was perfect.

Fitz leaned back, a frown on his face. “I am not.”

You had been inside your room watching Netflix with Steve. You had been watching some tv series, but you weren’t actually paying attention. You had a mission a day earlier that really took the energy out of you.You had your head resting on Steve’s chest and were listening to his heartbeat. The steady pulse lulled you to sleep. Just before your mind wandered off, you felt a buzz in your pocket. You groaned and took out your phone. You unlocked your phone and went into your messages. Your eyes widened when you realized who had texted you.

Come outside. You’re not going to want to miss this.

You locked your phone and shot up from off the bed. Steve looked at you confused.

waitingforeleven  asked:

Idk if you've addressed this yet, but in SBS, when did Fitz finally get around to proposing? I just read your answer about how they started thinking about marriage right before she gets taken by the monolith, so how much time passes before he pops the question? And how does he go about it? ;-) ❤❤❤

I haven’t addressed that yet, but - it happens during what’s 3x17 in canon. :-)

they’ve just survived yet another bomb - for Fitz and Sarama, this is far, far too similar to 8/8. so Fitz snaps unnecessarily at Lincoln, and moodily agrees with Coulson that they lie low for the time being. 

once the four of them are in their room, Jemma gets right to work, leaning back against Caedmon at the end of the queen-sized bed and grumbling about how they should be in the lab. Fitz, agitated, just stands in the center of the room for a bit, trying to calm down from the horror of having seen a second bomb go off far too close to Jemma and Caedmon. what if next time the bomb hits its target? absent-mindedly, she reaches up to the edge of the bed to rub the backs of her fingers against Sarama’s scales, and that familiar feeling of her touching his soul just crashes over him. what would his life be without her? without knowing that at least she was somewhere

and as Fitz is watching her do work, something he sees her do every day but now with cuts and bruises on her face, he just blurts it out:

“Will you marry me?”

Jemma blinks up at him, lips parting in shock. “What?”

@lovelornrocketscientist ⎣SHIELD Academy verse⎦

Audrey groaned to herself as she shuffled through the rather large pile of text books on the table.  There were so many in fact she could barely see her study buddy that sat across from her.  Midterms were at the end of the week and all of SHIELD Academy were scrambling to study and pass their tests.  Audrey was a really good student –– no excellent student … She already was a well trained medical doctor but that wasn’t good enough for SHIELD –– if she wanted to make it as a SHIELD doctor she was going to need to know things that even the most highly trained doctors would have a hard time understanding.  ❛ We’ve been at this for hours, Fitz.  My brain hurts and I think I might have to give myself a lobotomy. ❜ She peeked through a little crack of the wall of books and grinned.  ❛ You still awake over there? You’ve been silent for the last forty-five minutes. ❜

Leo Fitz was in her physics class and he even though he was super shy they had managed to become friends, often studying together and getting together for lunch here and there.  Audrey liked his company but usually where he was so was his best friend, Jemma Simmons.  The two were practically inseparable and when she was around he seemed to come out of his shell a little more.  It’s not that Audrey didn’t like Jemma –– she did, but it make her feel kind of like the third wheel when they were all together.

❛ If we’re gonna do anymore studying tonight I might need to do a coffee run, ❜ she smiled, pushing the books aside so she could actually see his face. ❛ Otherwise –– I might just end up falling asleep! ❜

wayhaught-fitzsimmons  asked:

Now in light of this gifset: /post/159608654687 (the lion cubs!!!) which is just so freaking cute, how many kids do you imagine Fitzsimmons having in the SBS universe. And have you imagined anything else in terms of a Fitzsimmons family in this verse ;) I LOVE this universe and I love it that you frequently publish your HCs about it :D It's so awesome :D

hehehe no lie, I’ve been just waiting for someone to ask me about family/child headcanons for this universe. like, real talk, I basically don’t care about and am not interested in FitzSimmons baby headcanons in any normal AU or canon, but suddenly you mention the Side By Side ‘verse and my entire brain turns into mush. and wasn’t that post adorable?! I have so many misc animal (well, lion and lizard) posts in my Academy AU tag now, lol. 

most of what I’ve imagined so far involves adorable new baby and daemon scenes - and most of them are Fitz-focused, lol. for example, I set one out in this post a while back (@eclecticmuses​ has been the sole victim of me occasionally having SBS!baby daemon feelings-attacks, lmao). they’re all snippets seen through rose-colored glasses that don’t take into account any of the difficult baby/kid stuff, but, y’know. I have a few little scene-lets that have popped into my head over the past few months that I just love. 

I’ve really only ever headcanoned FitzSimmons as having one child of their own, Margaret (named after her), and so that continues in this universe. her daemon eventually settles as a monkey, to Fitz and Sarama’s pure and utter delight. 

read on for so much tooth-rotting fluff you’re gonna need to floss after.
