Happy birthday to one of my best friends in this fandom, @dmichellewrites 

Since we’ve never met and I can’t get you a physical gift, (cons of living on opposite ends of the country), please accept this gifset of the very fic that brought us together, The Intern, written by you. 

This fic is inspired by the 2015 movie of the same name, starring OUR favorite actress, Anne Hathaway. Another love of ours, besides Olicity. (And we can’t forget Princess Diaries too. Just anything of Anne’s, honestly.) So if we really think about it, Anne Hathaway brought us together? 

I’m so glad I came across this fic, loved it and sent you an ask on how much I loved it. I did not know that it would lead to us basically talking every single day and forging a friendship. 

And if I’ve read the publishing and completion dates correctly, it’s been a little over a year since The Intern was published, meaning it’s been a little more than a year since we’ve become friends. I’ve learned so much about you in the past year. And have had fun talking about Olicity and Arrow to you every day. And helping you come up with ficideas or give you prompts when you’re bored. Or ranting/venting about any hardships in our lives (like a certain orange faced sad excuse for a leader). You’re basically my better half in this fandom. And I can’t remember what fandom life was before you. (And I don’t want to.)

So, I hope you have the best of days today watching 5x18. Hopefully, it’s an awesome episode. And I hope you and your bf celebrate your bday later this weekend. And I hope 25 is good to you, my love. 

Happy birthday my friend! I know it’s not my best work but since tomorrow I am going to the hospital I won’t be able to draw anything for you then so it’s an early birthday submission. Stay awesome and I hope you’ll have a good time! You are amazing and I’m happy to know you. Happy birthday ❤💚💜💙💛💓💕💖💞💋🎉🎁🎊

Thank you so much for your wonderful replies; they’re all so simplistically adorable, and it warms my heart when you leave in a submit! I love you so much Alex, and I’m happy to have known you too. I wish you a good day, and hope you take care, and feel a whole lot better!

I woke up with you on my mind.
You called me babe last night —
my heart is still pounding.

Tuesday 10:53pm
Today I realized we won’t work.
What we are is hurting her.
And I think she matters more to me than you do.

Wednesday 11:52pm
I broke things off with you today.
She barely said a word.
I’ve never regretted anything more than this.

Thursday 4:03pm
I shouldn’t have sent that message.
You shouldn’t have been so okay with receiving it.

Friday 9:57pm
I almost messaged you today.
I didn’t.

Saturday 8:49pm
I’m walking around town in search of alcohol.
They say that liquor numbs the pain of having a broken heart.
I want to put that to the test.

Sunday 2:32am
I heard you texted a girl you’ve never spoken to before.
I wonder if it’s because you’re trying to replace me.
I can’t help but wish you weren’t.
I thought I was irreplaceable.

—  a week with you on my mind, c.j.n.
Move on, leave, run away, escape this place… but don’t forget about me, about us, about this town. Always remember where you come from so you can appreciate how far you’ve come.
