but not really because arrow

Imagine Oliver finding Felicity on the island. 

He catches a glimpse of gold in the distance and for a second he thinks he’s imagining things. His heart clogs his throat and he stops breathing, trepidation flooding his veins… but then she moves, and he sees her. And it’s not just her, it’s everyone. The happiness and relief that slams into him nearly knocks him over, but the way it all focuses on Felicity is damn near staggering. He shouts her name and her head whips towards him. Time freezes… but then suddenly it’s racing and they’re running toward each other. Felicity hadn’t known where he was, if he’d survived, if Chase had gotten to him first, and Oliver, god, he thought they were all dead. That hadn’t stopped him from scouring every damn inch of the burnt landscape that was Lian Yu now, not willing to rest until he knew. And now he does. 

They finally reach other and Felicity practically tackles him as he tries to catch her. But she’s injured and he’s going on about two hours of sleep over the last week and they fall to the ground in a mess of limbs. They barely notice, talking over each other, hugging each other, trying to kiss… Her lip is bruised and split open, though, and she keeps catching his lip with her teeth. It’s horribly painful and awkward, but it’s so ridiculously amazing at the same time that they start laughing. It’s as much relief as it is wonder as disbelief.

Felicity proposes, right there.

“I don’t want to lose you again,” she whispers. “I don’t want to waste anymore time. Will you marry me?”

Oliver barely gets the word ‘yes’ out before he’s kissing her, and this time it’s perfect, neither of them feeling anything but the joy of finding each other again.

Can you imagine if an internet connection was established between different worlds and suddenly people from different universes could communicate with each other

Someone makes a post complaining about how “an asshole at work today didn’t trim his dragon’s claws and now the floor is scratched” and someone else is like WAIT YOUR WORLD HAS DRAGONS EXPLAIN and OP ends up explaining what he sees as his boring everyday dragon job to all these strangers who think it’s the coolest thing ever

An elf from your average high fantasy world chats with a robot from a sci-fi universe and discovers that it doesn’t matter that he’s horrible with a bow and arrow because it turns out he’s really good at this thing called astrophysics

“What do you mean your people are suffering because the king got killed and everything’s falling apart? Here, I’ll send you info about the basics of our different governments. Go restructure your economy.”

The blending of different cultures. The discussion of different types of magic. Ideas about fusing science and magic. The sharing of technologies. Lives being saved because zombie-apocalypse-world is giving nuclear-apocalypse world survival tips or that one centaur told an alien about a new medical treatment.

I fixed it but also im sad now

anonymous asked:

sexual tension and love and all is good but olicity needs a lot more to reconcile. what are your thoughts on that?

Oh you’re right, anon. 

Felicity told Oliver when she left him that he tended to revert back to his island way of going alone when things got rough. Oliver had been full of guilt and Felicity had been full of pain, and though they’d talked, they hadn’t talked. 

They haven’t had catharsis. They need that. We need that.

I need them to fight the fuck out. (I’m going to go One Tree Hill on your ass, so bear with me). It would be like this (in my head):

Oliver would be

And Felicity would take a deep breath and crack a joke and change the topic. For once though, Oliver would persist. Because they need to hash it out. The conundrum they’re in is not healthy for either of them, swinging between a rock and a hard place. 

Oliver would push and push and then Felicity would snap. Oh, she’d snap gloriously, laying it all out on the line completely, bare to him

They would hash it all out, completely and yell or whisper or just plain shake each other but they would LAY IT OUT

(I swear i got chills when i saw this scene for the first time)

That was the crux of the matter. Oliver didn’t share with Felicity. Oliver didn’t let her in. And he’s trying. Trying harder. 

He tells her that. He tells her.

It’s raw. It’s unrefined. It’s real

But she isn’t ready for the risk, not again, not so soon. Her heart is bruised and she isn’t ready.

But he can wait. He will wait for eternity if there was even a glimmer of possibility for them because for him, she is it.

And then, after that whole cathartic talk, would they be on the road back to each other. That doesn’t mean they’ll reconcile suddenly. It’s a long road, and it should take its own sweet time when the destination is forever. 

But this is how they get on the path. 

Because after all,

I don’t care if they take thirty minutes or five. I don’t care if they yell or whisper, scream or murmur. I don’t care if they cry like lovers or joke like friends. 

I just need them to talk the fuck out of this conversation.

AGGGHHHH! BREEE! When Felicity says, "I don't flourish well", you can just see in Oliver's face that he knows where this is going and he can't wait, he's imagining it right there as he lifts her up AND AND AND when he lifts her down, he shows his interest, his longing (hng) but then leaves it up to her AND AND AND then she just sways up to him and kisses him (AGH!) and he welcomes her with open arms, lets her lead AND ADN AND turns her around and what is he about to do?!!! I CAN'T



Kíli & Tauriel + body language

For the past four years, I have watched you do whatever you had to, whatever it took, to stop the people threatening this city. How can you stand there and not ask me to do the same thing?

One of the reasons I fell in love with you is because you were always willing to do what was right, no matter what the cost, even if it’s unbearably hard. It’s what makes you YOU. So how can I be any different? 

You have sacrificed your soul for the team and for the city and for me. You don’t have to carry that burden any longer. Let me do it.

Could Arrow Actually Make Lady Shiva The Season 6 Big Bad?
Arrow will be bringing in a brand new supervillain for Season 6. Now, a new piece of news has us wondering if the legendary DC Comics villainess Lady Shiva could be on her way to Star City.

AH ahhh ah aha h [sweats] you have no idea how nervous I am about this. Don’t hurt me please I’m just a sad meme who only wants to make people happy ok I don’t want any trouble please forgive my sins.

also these are a bit old, not recent. they’ve been aging in my folders.

like whine.


There’s a lot of talk about the fact that Hawkeye is canonically deaf in the comics (and uses hearing aids), but there’s rarely any mention of how this happened.

I think it’s important to remember Hawkeye didn’t just lose his hearing. He sacrificed it. It happens in the panels from the comic above, final issue of Hawkeye’s first solo limited, published in 1983 (written and penciled by Mark Gruenwald). In this comic, Hawkeye and Mockingbird (who he would marry at the end of the issue) are subjected to a sound that makes them go into a violent, uncontrollable rage. Hawkeye knows there’s a very good chance if he listens to this sound, he will beat Mockingbird to death.

This is a man who watched his father beat his mother. Who lost both his parents when his father forced his mother to drive with him when he was drunk. So when he’s faced with the possibility of becoming like his father, whether it’s of his own choice or not, and turning that kind of violence on a woman he loves, what does he do? He makes the decision to risk his own well being, to sacrifice one of his senses without knowing what the long term consequences will be, to prevent hurting her.

This is part of what makes Hawkeye’s deafness so important. It’s representation, yes, and we always need more of that in media. But it’s also a symbol of who he is, of who he’s willing to be. Yes, Hawkeye is the guy without any “real” powers, the guy who stands with the Avengers because he practiced until he got really, really good with arrows. But he’s also the guy who will put others first, who will do whatever needs to be done no matter the personal cost. Hawkeye’s deafness is a symbol of what makes him a hero, even without the powers.

Because that’s who Hawkeye is–the guy who shows that it doesn’t take a serum or a robot suit to be a hero. And his deafness is a reminder of that.



Okay, so, I think we talk so much about Rhett’s love for Link that I needed some of the opposite as well, and there’s plenty!

I took this excerpt from EB 42: “Obsession” pretty much at random and as a sample because the episode as a whole is 1+ hour of convo about one of the main reasons Link loves Rhett so much. That is, how passionate he can get when talking about something he likes. In fandom words: “how freaking cute he is when he starts ranting about stuff”.

Let’s go through some of the cutest bits:

  • Link starts off the episode by stating he prepared for it ahead of time and has a detailed list of all the things Rhett’s ever liked, his layers (and has had help not only from Rhett’s wife but his own too). 
  • He makes it clear that Rhett being an ideas guy is one of the things he’s liked about him (Rhett makes fun of the verb tense Link uses). Link: “[Jessie and I] like to make fun of you but I appreciate it. I like interfacing with someone (let’s call that person ‘you’) who is always gonna present me with something. That’s exciting. And if I don’t like it, there’ll be something else next week. And it’s great! This is a good arrangement.”
  • With each of the layers they go through, Rhett has the chance to rant about it and Link often laughs out loud because this man is just so ridiculous in the cutest way possible. (Seriously, if you want to hear Link laughing his glasses off a freaking lot, this podcast is your place).
  • Link also mentions how he’s always wanted to try out most of the things Rhett’s into any particular week, even if that means buying expensive stuff.
  • Rhett says he moves on from his layers once he sees they don’t appeal to either his wife or Link. “I gotta have somebody to do this with. I gotta have a partner. Either you have to get into it or my wife has to get into it.” But he also says that if Link would suddenly like one of his past obsessions, he’ll be ready to jump back into it on a whim.
  • Link being afraid of what Rhett’s going to try to get him into the next morning.
  • Rhett: “An old arrow head is Archeology, that’s not really Geology. Well, I guess indirectly it is Geology because the arrow was a rock at one point.” Link: “… Okay, smarty-pants.” Cue the cute laughter.
  • The audio clip I took has a glimpse of Link laughing while reminiscing one of the wildest things his boyfriend friend has done in order to pursue one of his passing obsessions: crow hunting. Now, as a cute side-note, notice how Link says: “If you ever wonder if your boyfriend, husband or acquaintance is bored and you see him building crows out of poster board, your answer is ‘yes’”. He could’ve easily said “friend”, but he goes for “boyfriend”, because that’s what Rhett is to him; his hysterically cute boyfriend.
