I TRIED SO HARD TO RESIST AND I FAILED. I HAVE FAILED THIS FANDOM.
HIGH SCHOOL MUSICAL AU GUYS WHERE YOU AT. (WILDCATS, EVERYWHERE, RIGHT? RIGHT??)
He was a boy, she was a girl, can I make it anymore obvious??? Oops, sorry, wrong song. Anywho, they meet on vacation - Oliver’s in Vegas, obvious, being a drunk asshole as per usual, Felicity’s having one last ‘touristy’ night on the Strip with friends before moving to her new home and school in Starling City.
They meet. They duet. IT’S GLORIOUS. THERE’S LOTS OF EYESEX AND GIGGLING AND PERFECT HARMONEEEEEEEEEEEY.
He totally has a crush on her and is okay nursing it cause he assumes they’ll never meet again; she thinks he’s cute and funny, but again, never seeing each other again so no harm in flirting.
AND THEN THEY MEET AT SCHOOL AGAIN AND OLIVER’S TELLING TOMMY ABOUT THE GIRL HE MET AT BREAK (TOMMY WAS GROUNDED).
Summer loving’ (Spring break, whatever) happened so fast….I know, again, wrong song, indulge me. Anyway, they run into each other and oh hey, I know you, cute person!
Anyways, they’re talking in homeroom and then the drama teacher - MR. WILSON DO NOT TELL ME OTHERWISE THAT OVERDRAMATIC SOUL - is insisting on the spring musiCAL and inquires if the new student, whose quite lovely, will be auditioning and Felicity is flustered and says yes and looks to Oliver for help and he doesn’t know why, but she looks so cute, so he finds himself volunteering before he knows it.
Tommy spends all lunch telling him how whipped he is for new girl and how he needs to GET HIS HEAD BACK IN THE GAME. They have an archery tournament to win or some shit (forgive me, whatever, I have zero interest in basketball).
Felicity meanwhile meets smarty pants and her future BFF Mr. John Diggle, who convinces her to join ARGUS, the slightly sketchy but fun smart people team with him and his girlfriend Lyla, they always need new blood and he knows how that Queen kid is (he doesn’t have a high opinion of Oliver’s dating habits).
But Felicity doesn’t break her promises, so she agrees to both join the team AND go audition after school as promised except Oliver almost doesn’t show OH NO.
We suffer through the painful audition of Isabel Rochev and Sebastion Blood, drama club darlings and favorites of Mr. Wilson, who are NOT HAPPY to have competition for most beloved drama people of the school.
BUT THEN OLIVER ARRIVES AND THEY AUDITION AND ARE CUTE AND IT IS GLORIOUS AND OTHER DRAMA I DON’T CARE ABOUT UNTIL THE DUET SCENE AT THE END.
WHEN THEY’RE SOOOOOARING. AND FLYYYYYING (EXCEPT NOT REALLY BECAUSE FELICITY HATES AIRPLANES + SKYDIVING)
AND THERE’S NOT A STAR IN HEAVEN THAT THEY CAN’T SEE (IN EACH OTHER’S EYES, OLIVER’S SAPPY LIKE THAT).
