Summary: Oliver and Felicity’s daughter has an uncanny ability for things to happen at the most inconvenient time possible. But, every now and then little Ellie Queen gets it exactly right.
A/N: An important note about this story - five of the six parts of this story are set beforeFICoN, which means it’s set before Ellie time travels, and technically in what we think future canon should be.
Additional important note, thank you to @fallingmeleth for the gorgeous cover art! We were blown away and we love it. And thank you yet again to @jsevick and @alizziebyanyothername for being our amazing betas. I cannot overstate how wonderful and important you two are to this process.

“Oh…” She pauses. Her voice is shaky and her eyes grow wet as she admits, “I’ve been better.”

lady grey:favourite outfit? uhhhh hm. My fave is my destroy the weak t shirt. it’s very long but is loosely form fitting and has actual comfortable sleeves for a women’s T. I usually wear it with my cargo pants. My other fave is black tank, dull dusty green button up worn loose with my painter pants.
milk:do you have any allergies? I’m mildly allergic to ragweed, pecans and tomatoes (but i fucking eat them anyway cuz i love tomatoes. screw you body. *lies fetal position on the ground in agony* “WORTH”) I’m more seriously allergic to a relative of ragweed: Chamomile. I also have very poor reactions to most anything with sedative properties to them (natural and not).
