Man Face Monday - October Return Face Edition

Good to back, isn’t it? First episode was pretty solid, right? Lots of good things. Some great possibilities again. 

This week I have some pretty pics and some new gifs for you. So, let’s do this. 

Look at this adorable puppy. 

Painterly Arrow.

The eyes. The lips. The everything. 

Dug back into last season to create a couple of fun face gifs. Here’s one. I will use this from time to time, I suspect…particularly as Black Siren does her BS.

Arty and broken. 

Worried Arrow face. 

My second new gif! Oliver can respond for us now. 

And a happy puppy again. 

Well, that’s it for my silliness for today. Looking forward to Thursday night’s episode! Please reblog and spread the face love, as tags aren’t always working for me. If you missed last week’s Washboard Wednesday, please look for it on my blog. 

If you would like to be removed or added to this list for Washboard Wednesday, Man Face Monday, and occasional other day posts of pretty, please let me know. I really hope the tags work this week. I know it’s spotty. Once again, please reblog if you think your followers will enjoy.

The book William is reading in 601 Adventure in Starlane Park is a nod to Arrow writer, Beth Schwartz since she’s listed as the author of that novel. cc: @oliverdant

Starlane Park is located in Prince George, British Columbia. So it is also a nod to British Columbia (where Arrow films). Thanks for the additional info @eloquence-of-felicities.

new fic: “twelve hours” (Olicity, rated E) ch 1/15

twelve hours, a fic by callistawolf
Chapters: 1/15
Fandom: Arrow (TV 2012)
Rating: Explicit
Warnings: Creator Chose Not To Use Archive Warnings
Relationships: Oliver Queen/Felicity Smoak
Characters: Oliver Queen, Felicity Smoak, Cooper Seldon, John Diggle, Thea Queen
Additional Tags: mentions of Cooper/Felicity, Romance, Angst, Smut, Alternate Universe, Alternative Universe - No Island, Boss/Employee Relationship, Consensual Infidelity, inspired by the film Indecent Proposal, Other Additional Tags to Be Added
Summary: Felicity Smoak has a plan for her life that includes living on the straight and narrow until she and her live-in boyfriend, Cooper Seldon, can finally begin their joint tech company like they’ve planned for years. She’s content in her life, such as it is, until she meets the CEO of the company she works at one day. And then a series of events brings him further into her life and relationship with Cooper. All it takes is twelve hours to throw everything into question and Felicity’s neat, ordered life isn’t so neat and ordered anymore.

Chapter Summary: Felicity meets the CEO of Queen Consolidated and… is he flirting with her? 

Author’s Note: This fic is going to come with some rather heavy and pointed warnings. I want to start off by saying that this story is not for everyone. If the notion of infidelity, even that which is consented to by all the parties involved, is a problem for you, then I would suggest you skip this story. Another item of note: the characters in this story are messy. They are not idealized versions of themselves. If anything, they are far messier than they are in canon. Felicity, as the primary POV character, has a lot of issues that she choses not to recognize. Those issues inform a lot of her decisions and feelings about things. They also inform what she chooses to see and not see. Please keep that in mind. I wrote her this way for a reason and I was very interested at playing with this version of her. I hope you are interested to read it.

I will add tags as needed as things progress but if you need me to tag for anything at any point, please let me know and I will be happy to do so. For those of you who join me in this story, if you can keep an open mind, I hope you will pleased with how everything is told. I’ve had this idea in my head for over a year now, unsure about writing it, but thanks to some lovely friends on Twitter, I’ve been encouraged to write, finish and post it.

Yes, this story is finished. But I will not be posting daily. For the time being, I will post Mondays and Wednesdays. I may cut back to once a week on Wednesdays, it really depends on my schedule in the coming weeks. While the story is all written (all fifteen chapters of it!), I do need to edit it and that’s often what takes the most time for me.

You can read this chapter on Ao3.


“Maybe I could get you to take a look at my phone. It’s been acting up lately.”

Felicity saw what he was doing and knew it was an excuse. But… truth be told, she kind of liked being in his presence. There was something about him that made her feel special, interesting and appreciated. So she smirked at him and held out her hand. “Let’s see it then.”

Oliver smirked back as he pulled his phone out of his trousers pocket and placed it in her hand. “It’s been behaving strangely.”

“For how long?” she asked, thumbing the screen on and then presenting it to him for his thumbprint identification.

He obliged, pressing his thumb to the screen to unlock the device. “For a while now.”

Everything looked in order as she scrolled through the pages of apps. “I’m not seeing what’s wrong here… there’s no error messages and everything seems to be working fine. Can you describe what the issue is?”

Felicity looked up and saw he was still smirking at her. “Yeah, uh… it’s missing something… here, let me see it a moment.”

He took the phone from her and opened an app, handing it back to her.

She drew her eyebrows together as she looked at the screen. But it was… the contacts app. “I don’t understand…?”

“It’s missing your phone number,” he told her, leaning close to whisper it conspiratorially.
