Thanks again to susannahmccormick for looking this over.

Three days after arriving in Starling City, it’s already starting to feel like home to Felicity.

She’s got her apartment almost sorted, the stuff she shipped from Boston arriving as planned the morning she got her key. She’s even mostly unpacked. Ok, the important stuff is unpacked.

The email was short, just a link to the external QC website where she found an updated picture of Oliver. She snorted, remembering her tirade about the outdated image that used to be there. In this one, he looked exactly as she remembered him - bright blue eyes and a jawline to die for. Except …  she’s never seen him dressed like this. If he’d been wearing that dark grey suit and tie on the day they met, it’s quite possible she’d have taken him upstairs, consequences be damned. It’s a really good suit, OK?
