“Jumping around parallel planes, changing the course of a hundred histories, altering timelines wherever she goes. She’s made a mess out of the universe, you know. For you.”
Daisy is shifting earth on nothing but her grief, her determination, her command of tectonic plates and the heartbeat of this planet. On a mission to save the world from the Destroyer that spread the disease. The ancient Inhuman in Grant Ward’s body.
“There’s no coming back from this, Skye. But you knew that when you started.”This fic was inspired by the Interdimensional Time Travel gifset series, and it’s one of the best stories out there right now, imo. Gripping plot and amazing characterization of Skye/Daisy in particular. This is the Skye I was longing to see on the show!
I’m not sure where she’s going with the plot but I’m on tenterhooks.

(part 4 of “An Honest Conversation”)
This one sadly doesn’t seem to be updated any more but I’d read it anyway because it’s SO GOOD.

But following a standard job gone south, Ward’s more in need of information than ever. Pursued by former associates and haunted by demons a little more physical than figurative, Ward’s path to redemption may have to wait in favor of outright survival. Alone, save for the dead woman that seems determined to guard his back, Ward’s having to face up to the fact that obedience hasn’t served him well.
Perhaps now is the time to start asking questions.

Grant Ward’s in trouble. As if having Hydra and S.H.I.E.L.D on his trail wasn’t enough, it seems more than one new party has taken an interest in him. The more he digs to find out the truth of what happened to him in Europe, the less he likes the picture that’s emerging.

Summary: “Look,” Coulson said with a frown, “I’m the director, I make the decisions. This is a mission that suits Ward’s qualities perfectly.”
Oh yes, right. There was primarily one quality that predestined him for this mission.
“I get it, Coulson,” Ward threw in with a smirk of false bravado. “I’m expendable.”
Characters: Simmons, Weaver, Gonzales, Ward, Garrett, Fitz, Coulson, May, Skye
Tags: AU, Redemption fic
Summary: There is a poorly written fic floating around where the Kree Stone send Simmons back in time where she pushes Ward into traffic and because of it Trip, Hartley, and Kara are alive and Kara is gay (because Ward’s super powers are turning people straight.)
Yes, inspiration can come from weird places.
Part 4 of The Lesser of a Whole Host of Evils
(In which Grant Ward is done taking crap from SHIELD when they come for his help)
