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.)

Um please do Skimmons for that ship meme thing. For reasons. Thank you much.
Yes. Thank you. As you know, I think Skimmons together are just the biggest dorks in love. They are super focused and serious when it comes to their work, but they are just idiots with each other, and they need that.
who holds the umbrella when it rains: Skye. Jemma will start talking about precipitation and the way the light catches the rain, and what angle it’s falling at, and how pretty it looks, and nature, and she wanders around looking at how the everything interacts. And Skye loves her for it, but it’s cold out. And when Jemma holds the umbrella she’ll walk away and leave Skye with no protection from the elements. So Skye holds the umbrella, and Jemma has to reign it in so she doesn’t get a cold, or she’ll just pout at her girlfriend, and say, “Skye, the Science!” And Skye will follow her umbrella overhead. But she knows she’ll get a bubble-bath with Jemma out of it.
who is the grumpiest in the morning: Skye. She loathes morning workouts and having to leave her warm bed and hot girlfriend to do tai chi with May. Jemma is up by 5:45, but May likes Skye to be ready by 5:45. Jemma has switched around her routine, so she’s up with Skye. She makes Skye coffee while she drinks her tea. Then while Skye works out, Jemma does her time on the treadmill, and then they shower together. So really, Skye’s not too grumpy in the mornings because she’s got shower sex with Jemma to look forward to.
who worries more when the other is sick/hurt: They worry equally. Jemma always panics internally until she can check Skye over when she’s been in the field. Always flashing back to when Skye was shot by Quinn. When Skye is sick, Jemma worries as well because Skye is stubborn, and will not rest. She’s made a 24 hour bug last 72 hours because she wouldn’t stay in bed, she’s reopened a wound because she had to her morning work out. Skye worries when Jemma is hurt because Jemma’s the doctor, and she can’t fix herself if she’s hurt. She’s taken to trying to study Jemma’s old flash cards. Mostly, she worries that she’s doing to make something worse but cuddling Jemma too much when she’s hurt.
who plays pranks on the other: They play pranks on each other, and the rest of the team is a casualty. Jemma’s pranks are more subtle. She bio-engineered oranges that tasted like apples, apples that tasted like bananas, and grapes that tasted like oranges, and bananas that tasted like grapes. And Skye was so confused and scared that something was really, really wrong with her and started to panic. Coulson thought it was some kind of biochemical terrorism. Jemma didn’t think it was funny after that. Skye mixed red dye in with the clothes detergent, so all of Jemma’s whites were a redish pink. It was hilarious until she forgot to switch it back before anyone else did laundry. They aren’t allow to play pranks anymore. So it’s basically just trying to scare each other when one walks into a darkroom or turns a corner.
who is always the first to suggest cuddling on the sofa: Skye. Jemma spends so much time in the lab/doing research, and when they’re not on a mission Skye chills in the lounge working on code and such. When her eyes hurt or she thinks Jemma’s been working to long, she pulls her away from the lab, and they settle in for some much needed cuddles and netflix. They don’t usually cuddle in shared spaces, though because as Jemma put it to Skye, she “doesn’t want to rub it in Fitz’s face.” to which Skye replied, “you’ve been rubbing it in my face almost every night this week.” Then she made Jemma high-five her.
who insists on creating nicknames for the other: Skye. She’ll call Jemma baby-cakes, her main-squeeze, doll-face. Dated terms of endearment, and things they’ve heard in movies and tv shows, like lamby-toes and sugar-foot. But she also calls her Jemmy-JemJam, baby and babe. Skye once called Jemma “cupcake”, then for a week Jemma referred to Skye as “her little breakfast bar”, “butternut squash”, “bearclaw”, “churro”, “meatball hero,” etc. Through a fit of laughter, Skye made her promise to stop when Jemma called Skye her “sweet, sweet turducken”. Jemma usually calls Skye, darling or love. Just to see Skye’s reactions she’ll call Skye her “main bitch”, “shawty”, “boo,” ”bae”, or the most random item she can think of: see turducken.
who drools on the other when they’re asleep: Jemma does. She usually falls asleep with her head pillowed on Sky’s chest. Skye says it’s because Jemma loves Skye’s boobs and is thinking about them before she sleeps. Jemma won’t admit that a lot of her dreams involve her mouth and hands and Skye’s breasts.
who says ‘I love you’ first: Jemma says it first. Over breakfast. Skye tells her a really bad science pun, and Jemma is just tickled because she knows Skye was on the internet looking for chemistry puns to make Jemma laugh, and that thought makes Jemma kiss lean over and kiss Skye. Skye sighs into the kiss, and Jemma whispers, “I love you,” against Skye’s lips.
