54 with fitzsimmons? 😊😊

Hey nonnie!! I hope you enjoy it!

54. Why is there a pregnancy test in the trash?


The biochemist looked up from her files and spun around to see Melinda May standing in the doorway of the lab. “Hello, what can I do for you?”

“I just had a question to ask you.” May seemed to have a smirk playing on her lips.

“Fire away,” Jemma replied nodding. Her friend’s smile made her feel uneasy.

“Why was there a pregnancy test in trash of the ladies bathroom?”

Jemma froze, her eyes growing wide. “I- ummm.”

“And don’t try and tell me it’s not yours. Your reaction just proved to me that it is. Does Fitz know?”

Jemma shook her head vigourously. “No. I wanted to be positive before I told him. That’s the third test I’ve taken.”

“And?” May raised her eyebrows.

Jemma gave May a little smile. “All three positive.”

“Congratulations,” May nodded beaming. Then her eyebrows raised in confusion. “So why are you in the lab and not telling Fitz he’s going to be a dad?”

Jemma began to fidget slightly. May had hit the nail right on the head. “It’s complicated.”

May stood there for a moment, and then began to walk towards Jemma. “I’ve got time.”

Jemma ran her hand through her hair and sat down in a chair. May leaned against the table next to her. She sighed and then began to explain. “Ever since the framework Fitz and I have had our ups and downs. Things were going well and starting to return back to normal… So I guess I’m afraid that the baby will cause Fitz be become afraid again. To be afraid of becoming like his father.”

May looked down as her brows furrowed. For a while she didn’t speak but seemed to be contemplating her footwear.

“Am I being ridiculous?” Jemma asked, desperate for some sort of reply.

“No, that’s a legit fear. What would be ridiculous is Fitz actually thought he’d be like his father.”

Jemma bowed her head. “I just don’t want this to set him back. I don’t know what to do.”

May knelt down in front of Jemma resting her hand on the biochemist’s leg. She looked up at Jemma in a way that was unlike her. It was caring and loving. Her eyes were filled with concern.

“Trust him Jemma. Trust yourself. If you two work together you can do anything. Even raise a child. And I’m sure that it’ll be one hell of a smart kid.”

Jemma laughed and smiled. “Thank you,” she said covering May’s hand with her own.

But then May stood to her feet. “Well then, go on. Go find him and tell him.”

Jemma stood hastily from the chair giving May a quick hug. “Thank you,” she said, before running out the door of the lab. She knew Fitz was in the bunk working on some new ideas.

So she rushed down the hall and flung open the door to their shared room. Fitz sat on the bed with paper’s surrounding him. He looked up as she entered.

“Hey Jem,” he said glancing up at her.

“Fitz I have something to tell you!”

Fitz smiled along with her even though he didn’t know why he was smiling yet. “What is it?”

“You’re going to be a father.”

Fitz’s jaw dropped and his eyes grew wide. “What?”

Jemma felt her heart pound and the color drain from her face. She could not read his expression. Was it joy? Was it fear? “Fitz, I’m pregnant.”

He removed the papers slowly from his lap. Jemma could hear his breathing quicken as he stood to his feet. Those blue eyes starred down at her. Then suddenly a grin over took his handsome face and his arms encircled her waste.

Jemma felt herself being lifted from the floor. “Fitz,” she shrieked with laughter.

But Fitz didn’t reply. Instead, his lips set about kissing every inch of her face he could reach.

“I’m so glad you’re happy,” said Jemma between his kisses.

Fitz leaned back cupping her face. “I’m not gonna lie. I’m scared my dear Jemma. Being a father is not an easy job. But with you as my wife I know we’ll be alright.”

Jemma let out a happy sigh. “Oh Fitz, I love you so much!”

“And I love you,” Fitz said before capturing her lips as well as her breath.

Good old times

Request for @original-vanda who asked for a drawing of Obi-Wan and Ahsoka ! (I only drew them together, not especially as a pairing thing, as I’m not at ease with it, but I still wanted to draw the both of them for you so I hope you like it :) Olso, this is my first drawing of Ahsoka so I hope it’s alright XD )


This is it. This is the best video I’ve ever taken of anything.

Flying With Fuel From Plants: The Eco-friendly Way to Go

We eat them. We make medicines out of them. Now we’re learning how to use plants as airplane fuel that helps the environment.

Using biofuels to help power jet engines reduces particle emissions in their exhaust by as much as 50 to 70 percent, according to a new study that bodes well for airline economics and Earth’s atmosphere.

The findings are the result of a cooperative international research program led by NASA and involving agencies from Germany and Canada, and are detailed in a study published in the journal Nature.

Our flight tests collected information about the effects of alternative fuels on engine performance, emissions and aircraft-generated contrails – essentially, human-made clouds - at altitudes flown by commercial airliners.

Contrails are produced by hot aircraft engine exhaust mixing with the cold air that is typical at cruise altitudes several miles above Earth’s surface, and are composed primarily of water in the form of ice crystals.

Researchers are interested in contrails because they create clouds that would not normally form in the atmosphere, and are believed to influence Earth’s environment. 

The alternative fuels tested reduced those emissions. That’s important because contrails have a larger impact on Earth’s atmosphere than all the aviation-related carbon dioxide emissions since the first powered flight by the Wright Brothers.

Researchers plan on continuing these studies to understand the benefits of replacing current fuels in aircraft with biofuels.

Every time I see a teenager vomit out their history of trauma during shipping discourse as a trump card I want to shake the little frickers (and the big frickers that started this trend) because that is not safe and it is not healthy.
