I’m going to single out a duo that is single-handedly elevating the show around them: Leo Fitz and Jemma Simmons on Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. Two nerdy scientists so compatible they’re often just referred to as “FitzSimmons,” their relationship started as Fitz’s one-sided crush and grew into something more heartbreaking and complex over the next two seasons. Though many people are understandably annoyed by how frequently male/female friendships become romantic on TV, it’s honestly a trope I can’t get enough of, particularly when it’s acted by standouts like Iain De Caestecker and Elizabeth Henstridge. Their mixture of comfort with and commitment to one another is incredibly appealing to me and those British accents don’t hurt either. At this point FitzSimmons accounts for a good 80 percent of my investment in S.H.I.E.L.D., and if Marvel ever wants to spin them off into their own big screen rom-com I am totally there.

Me:my OTP is so stressful. The only thing keeping them from each other is themselves.
Someone else:OMG same and it's only been two episodes
Me:EXCUSE YOU. HAS YOUR OTP LITERALLY CONQUERED OCEANS AND GALAXIES TO BE WITH EACH OTHER? HAS YOUR OTP SACRIFICED THEMSELVES FOR EACH OTHER LIKE EVERY OTHER EPISODE? HAS YOUR OTP SURVIVED EVERY SINGLE TV TROPE KNOWN TO MANKIND? HAS YOUR OTP BEEN THROUGH THREE SEASONS OF PINING?
Me, in tears:THEY'VE BEEN BESIDE EACH OTHER THE WHOLE DAMN TIME.
Me:I CAN'T THEY'RE NOT STRONG ENOUGH TO LIVE IN A WORLD WITHOUT EACH OTHER AND THEY'RE GONNA MARRY EACH OTHER AND LIVE IN A COTTAGE IN PERTHSHIRE! IN SCOTLAND! *sobs eternally*
