Someday a Turtle Will Learn How to Fly

I’m going on a trip with family tomorrow, so I won’t be on much or at all over the next few days. I look forward to reading all your fics and looking at all your edits and graphics and comics when I get back!


When Fitz and Simmons finally got to meet Tony Stark, Tony asked Fitz what was his favourite thing he invented and Fitz showed him the Night-Night Gun. At first, he was embarrassed by what he called the gun, until Stark said “cool name”. Behind Stark, Simmons was giving Fitz two thumbs up.

Ming-na Wen and Retta at NerdHQ’s A Conversation with Badass Women (x)
Retta: My parents are from Liberia, and Liberians are ALL about school. It’s like, no joke. Most of them send their kids to the States to go to school because they think that’s where the best schools are, that sort of thing. And I was a math-science girl, I was pre-med. I was supposed to be a neurosurgeon.
And I remember when I started doing stand up, I was like, “Shit! My mother is going to be like, ‘Are you fucking kidding me right now?’” And I remember calling my mom and saying, “So I’m going to drive to California and do the stand-up thing so I can get into TV.” And my mom, you know, she didn’t freak out like I thought she was totally going to freak out. My dad freaked out. He was like, “Please get health insurance.” That was his big thing, “GET HEALTH INSURANCE.” But my mom was like, “Just remember you’re carrying around your father’s last name. So don’t embarrass him.” She was like, “Do the best that you can. Don’t go playing. If you’re going to do, do it.” So, I dropped my last name so as not to embarrass my father.
But God bless, because a lot of parents wouldn’t…

Ming-na: You know, we have to talk. Because I dropped my stage last name Wen for the longest time when I did ER - which, by the way, I got to tell my mom, “I got to be a doctor for 5 years so, write that off the list.” because of same issues, fatherly things.
But now, I have it back because I’m proud being who I was born as. And we have so much to talk about, girl.

Summary:
Leo Fitz is the last human on Earth, dropped off by humanity’s armada to take care of the robot fleet left to clean up the planet and search for new life. He spends his days with his robot best friend, WALL-E, always waiting - until a robot handler named Jemma Simmons arrives and everything changes.

——-

An excerpt:

When Wall-E didn’t move away again, she crouched down to get at eye-level and stared curiously at him. He leaned away at first, but then stretched his disproportionally-thin neck forward to return her scrutiny, eyes lifting and falling as he examined her face.

“Did you give him mods?”

“What?”

“There’s a little –” She popped open the tape deck in Wall-E’s chest. The robot flailed his short arms and squeezed the compartment closed, scooting away from her and glancing at the impassive, egg-shaped robot in embarrassment. Simmons smiled. “He has a cassette deck – that’s how he was playing the music. I may not be an engineer, but I’m quite sure those aren’t standard for trash compacting robots.”

Fitz rubbed his neck, miserably hoping that the flush creeping up his neck was hidden by the encroaching darkness. “I… may have tinkered with a few things. Just for him, though. Left the others to do their jobs properly.”

“Is that why he’s so…” She paused, both of them watching Wall-E continue his inept attempts to befriend (or woo) Eve.

“No,” he answered preemptively, shaking his head. “I found him like that.”

“That’s certainly not standard, though, for waste reduction robots.”

Fitz smiled as Eve let out a small giggle at the other robot’s antics. “Not at all. There’s no one else quite like Wall-E.” He glanced up and tilted his head, puzzled by the softness of the look Simmons gave him as he talked about his pet robot.

Read the rest!

Plausible explanations that have 1000% happened in canon before:

  1. Skrull
  2. Life Model Decoy
  3. Shapeshifter
  4. Double agent/triple agent
  5. "Oh JASper SITwell!  No no, that was his evil twin, Tasper Fitwell!  Don’t be silly, Sitwell would never be evil."
  6. Mind-control agent that is cleared out by the near-death experience
  7. Bodyswap
  8. "Look, it kind of started as a dare and it escalated from there."
  9. Actually paid off by Latveria to keep an eye on things Doom considers dangerous
  10. Clone

Just off the top of my head.

11. Evil!Jasper that crossed the darkest timeline to Earth 199999

This is very lovely and said, and yet my mind automatically completes it with, “But he watched the tape later and was very moved.”

I like to think he’d freak out about Steve carrying his casket.

And for a moment Coulson found himself thinking, “Man, I wish I really was in that casket… wait.”
