This article or section needs expansion.



Jemma/Grant is one of the more popular het pairings in Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. fandom, usually grouped together in a threesome with Leo Fitz.

The pairing immediately appeared after the first episode aired.[1] The pairing quickly took off after the next few episodes that were released in October.[2] Although it probably wasn't until the episodes "FZZT"[3] and "The Well"[4] in November that the pairing increased in size, both had significant amount of Grant/Jemma scenes that are often seen in fanworks such as gifs and picspams on Tumblr and fanfiction at AO3 and FFN. By the end of the first Season,[5] Simmons/Ward remained one of the top popular pairings for the AOS fandom.[6]

The shipping name for the pair is BioSpecialist after voting at the SimmonsWard Tumblr blog that hosted a poll to decide with what name to go with, although Biochemical Agent, Chemical Agent and Biochem and Bombs can still be used to describe the pairing.[7]
