Dedicated to olicitykisses and sentence-fragments. You both continue to be my darlings! ❤
This story keeps chugging along, snowballing with love and kind words and what’s that, oh yeah, fans (which is absolutely crazy to think about). So, things about this chapter that are important: we get the fallout (Oliver has some decisions to make), we finally get Diggle (major thanks to lieutenantsmoak who helped me figure that out), and we get a bit of Cisco too. Also, there might be a deleted scene coming after this that’ll pick up on something that happens in this chapter (shhhh, spoilers!)
Also, you can thank my mom for this being edited, because now she’s a huge fan of this story and she got really mad at me when she saw the other chapters weren’t edited. Love you, Mom!
Summary: Felicity Smoak is alive. The Starling city resident was found by fishermen in the North China sea five days ago, five years after she was lost at sea and presumed dead in an accident that sunk a Smoak Technologies research vessel. Smoak was the crowning jewel of the Starling city elite—a top student at MIT at just sixteen. Shortly before her disappearance she was working with Smoak Technologies to develop a cutting edge computer micro chip. Smoak is the daughter of Starling city billionaire, Dr. Robert Smoak, who was also on board the research vessel, but is now officially confirmed as deceased.
