Time for another round of Wild and Crazy Speculation!
So, what if Arrow’s intention is to loosely follow those few OTA comics they released that one time? I’ve never read them, so this is just based on what I’ve seen in canon and a brief (did I say brief? Because I meant BRIEF) understanding of the comics. Oh and also the spec that Felicity and Oliver will both end up back on the island. Idk it’s fun and (possibly) makes sense, so…
- Felicity fully joins Helix and they ask her to use her tech skills to assassinate someone. Felicity refuses, so they do it themselves but frame Felicity for it.
- Meanwhile, Prometheus manages to turn Susan against Oliver (probably wouldn’t be hard) and convinces her to publish the information she has about him being a member of the Russian mob and the Green Arrow (who has also now been named a cop killer publicly in a trial and by the freaking man himself so… not looking good Oliver, my man).
- Oliver’s in some serious trouble and laying low, but then BAM. The other shoe drops and Felicity is arrested for an assassination she didn’t commit. Now the only person who could probably clear Felicity’s name would be Felicity so the team’s helpless and Oliver decides “eh, screw it,” and goes and breaks her out of jail even though he’s Star City’s most wanted.
- They have a cute “You came for me,” moment. (I know there is a moment like this in those comics but for the life of me I can’t find a photo.) But then they have to book, because they are wanted fugitives. So they say goodbye to their friends and head off to the island. (Oh, yeah and they probably find time to stop Prometheus at some point in there.)
And after that… beats me. I have no idea how they’d fix that, but it would be pretty cool (and make an awesome fic *wink wink* (somebody write it) (not me though)).
Honestly, I don’t think this is where we’re going, but I would not be opposed in the slightest.
Okay so I don’t normally do this, but this has been flooding my brain since I read the 5x22 synopsis. This is my take on what should happen in 5x22 during the party. I really hope you like it xxx
After catching Chase Oliver seemed a bit more relaxed,
in his own Oliver kind of way, but she figured that after all the terrible
things they all had suffered this past year, having something cheerful and
positive to celebrate was just what they needed as a team. Oliver’s birthday
seemed to be the perfect excuse and if she was really honest with herself she
also wanted to do something special for him.
Turns out that arranging a surprise party for someone
whose second name could have been Sherlock proved to be trickier than she
initially figured. Since she and Oliver were in a much better place with their
relationship, him looking over her shoulder happened more frequently, which
made planning everything with him in the room almost impossible. Luckily with
the help of some very bad people, being on the loose thanks to Chase, and
Curtis next to her to help out whenever they were in the field, the party was
arranged in no time and all she could hope for was that until they yell “surprise”
he wouldn’t figure out what was going on.
The plan was in motion. Thea was in charge of setting
up the decorations, Curtis was on ‘cake-pick-up’ duty and everyone else was helping
to get all the final touches in place. All that was needed was the birthday boy
and she hoped that her cryptic text wasn’t going to blow up in her face.
The tracker on his phone notified her he was heading
their way. They put off the lights and kept quiet, listening to his footsteps
as he headed for the front door. He opened the door stepping inside and just
when they were ready with their “surprise” he spotted Curtis in the corner of
his eye and put him down on the floor ready to punch the hell out of him.
He looked up at everyone standing around him and that’s
when he saw the banner ‘Happy Birthday Oliver’. He let
Curtis go and she could swear she saw a bit of a blush on his cheeks when
Quentin not so subtly made known that he told them a surprise party was a bad
Everyone laughed it off and in a moment everything was
forgotten and all anyone could concentrate on was the food and champagne.
Laughter and smiles was something they didn’t often
get to see with this specific group of people. The change in pace was welcome
as she looked around the room inspecting the people that have become her
family, some old and some new, but they were her real family none the less.
She missed the face she really wanted to see in the
room, but then she spotted him. He was standing out on the balcony. She always
thought of the balcony as ‘their spot’.
Even when they were not together she went out there alone or to meet Oliver
when he conveniently ‘forgot’ the
loft had a front door.
Familiar butterflies formed in her stomach the closer
she got to the balcony. He was leaning over the railing, looking over the
twinkling lights of the city. The memories of a simpler time flooded her mind,
but things were different now. So much had happened between them.
“I’ve been looking for you.” she said stepping
outside, but he kept his eyes fixed on the view in front of him. The corner of
his mouth twitched up, giving a small smile at the sound of her voice.
“Yeah, I’m sorry, I just…I needed some air.” he
answered, his voice low.
She stopped next to him, placing her hands on the
railing. She looked out in front of him admiring the view, but trying to get
her breathing under control. Ever since they got trapped in the bunker
something shifted between them. Things between them were lighter, easy again
like it was before and even though it was hard to fight their attraction since
their little ‘slip up’, it was even harder to fight the sexual tension now.
“Was it too much too soon? I’m sorry I didn’t even
think that it might have been too overwhelm…”
“No…it’s perfect.” he cut her off, looking at her for
the first time since they were alone. The heat of his hand linked with hers immediately
filled her whole body and she had to fight the urge to kiss him right then. “Thank
you for this. I…this was so thoughtful and I lo…I really appreciate it.” he
added as he looked at her, swallowing thickly for what she can only assume was
almost a slip of the tongue. He didn’t keep her gaze for long when he turned and
looked back over the city, but his hand remained linked to hers.
“So what’s up then? Is there something wrong?” she
asked cautiously. She didn’t want to risk pushing him into telling her
something that might push them back to a place where they were distant again.
“For almost a decade I either didn’t know when my
birthday was or it just didn’t feel like celebrating, with the exception of
course when we were on the road trip and you went out of your way with the
sparkles and ice cream….” he chuckled shaking his head.
“Yeah, that was an interesting experience.” she
laughed too, blush forming on her cheeks as she thought back to their time
“But even then…let’s just say that to me celebrating
my birthday was celebrating my life and looking back at my life there was just
nothing worth celebrating…I wasn’t worth celebrating.”
“Oliver…” she started, placing her hand on his arm, looking
at him, getting herself ready for another pep talk, but he didn’t give her a
“For ten years Felicity I have looked at myself in the
mirror. I have looked at the man I am and every time I look at myself every
scar, everything that I’ve done is reflected back at me in that mirror and that
was a reflection of someone who didn’t deserve a birthday cake or candles or a
song, it was the reflection of a damaged, broken man.”
He looked sad, but there was something different in
the way he looked at her right now.
“I was so convinced after all these years that I wasn’t
worthy and you were right, I kept on hanging on to the past, I kept on
reverting back to who I was because I thought that I had to live up to my
father’s legacy, I had to right his wrongs, but after everything that happened
with my father recently, I realised
you were right again…”
“Shocker.” she teased lightly bumping him with her
shoulder and the sadness in his eyes changed into something lighter.
“I know I made mistakes, but I know that I can’t
continue to hold on to a legacy that’s not mine. I have to be my own man and
create a life where I can leave a legacy for William….and hopefully more
children to come.”
“I promised you that I would never lie to you again
and I know that right now might not be the right time to say anything, but I
can’t keep this from you any longer. I’ve made mistakes Felicity and I can’t
promise you that I will never make mistakes again, but I’m trying every day to
make a choice to be me, to discover who I am….and who I want to be. Felicity
I love you and that’s never changed. I tried moving on, I tried seeing where
other paths would lead me but every path I’ve taken has led me right back to
She sucked in a breath hearing the words. Her heart
swelled with so much love and emotion she had for this man standing in front of
“I told you before that the way you make me feel is
the best part of my life, Felicity and I meant it then and I mean it now. I don’t
know where you are right now where we are concerned and I need you to know that
me saying this is in no way pressuring you to act on it, but if I’m going to be
honest with myself and honest with you I can’t keep running circles around my
feelings for you….”
She leaned up and pressed her lips against his,
swallowing whatever words were supposed to come next. It was gentle at first,
but after almost a year of ignoring what was between them, he responded
immediately and he deepened the kiss. His tongue begging for entrance and she
opened up for him in an instant. She draped her arms around his neck and in
kind he pulled her closer to him wrapping his arms around her waist. Their
closeness and tasting each other after so long just fuelled the fire that’s been
simmering inside of them, but she knew they were not alone and even though she
would love nothing more than to get lost in each other right now, they had to
She slowed the kiss, and he understood exactly where
she was going. He pecked her lips a few times and ended with their lips
lingering, breathing the same air as they tried to find their footing back to
“I love you too.” she whispered, looking up into his
eyes opening slowly after hearing the words.
Curtis was right. Even after everything they’ve gone
through one thing hasn’t changed and that was the way that he looked at her.
His eyes were flooded with so much love and even though she knew there were
going to be challenges in their future, she wanted him to look at her like that
for the rest of her life.
“What do you say you get these people out of here
then, so I can ravage you.” he said with a smirk on his face.
She immediately left their cocoon and stepped inside
“Okay everyone!” she announced, “thank you for coming,
but this party is over.”
I know we’re had our share of bumps and bruises this season. We’ve had a few highs and a few too many lows. We’ve agreed and agreed to disagree. Maybe it’s only me, but I’ve felt pretty alone and disconnected this whole season.
But, now, as we get closer to 5x20, can we all agree that we need to stand together to make it through this ep? Because I miss that.
I miss fangirling and freaking out over moments with everyone. I miss having people to talk to and rant with. I miss coming up with metas and head canons.
And I want that back, but I think we all need each other for that.
Not to mention, the promo alone had me keeled over on the floor. I know I’m going to need everyone to make it through next week.
So, can we do that, please? Like we were for 3x20?
Because I’m dumb and reblogged two different ask games, you get two for the price of one!
Who I will protect at all costs: Dinah Laurel Lance Who deserves better:Dinah Laurel Lance Who was killed off too early:Dinah Laurel Lance (and Shado, and Moira, and Amanda Waller…) Who I used to hate but now I love: I wouldn’t say hate but I wasn’t sure how I felt about Thea at first. She seemed to be written to be a bit of a brat at the beginning, and I think in a different actress’ hands it would have been unbearable. But Willa brings so much to the role and to the pain that Thea experiences from losing her family over and over and over again while still managing to remain a fun character. Thea’s easily one of the most developed characters on the show from where she started to where she is now and all I can say is I want more Speedy, damnit. Also I loathed Quentin at first and tbh he will always be very problematic but I have grown to appreciate his complexity and what it brings to the show. Who I used to love but now I hate: I still stand by Malcolm was the best villain. I’m not really here for Slade’s Shado-induced manpain and his constant targeting of women. But Malcolm sucks after s1 so now I hate him. Also Felicity gets real stale real fast after s1. And I soured on Sara despite the show really trying to make me sympathize with her in s2 because she continues to take the people who love her for granted (i.e. Laurel and Nyssa, dear god, tell the poor woman you’re not interested in a relationship anymore or something, don’t just skip off and start sleeping around all across time while she continues to call you her beloved) and she’s just generally never held accountable for anything she did thus making her seem like a very self-centered person who never thinks about anyone else’s pain and I’m not a fan of it. Who needs to be killed off asap: Malcolm Merlyn needed to die a while ago. I used to think they shouldn’t do it because Dark Archer is such an important part of GA but like…he’s barely been Dark Archer since s1 and his characterization has become so weak in the latter seasons plus the fact that he continues to live while all these amazing female characters be getting fridged left and right turns my stomach. Who is unfairly hated:Dinah Laurel Lance Who is unfairly loved: Felicity Who needs to sort out their priorities: Felicity “No, Ray, Oliver!” Smoak and Oliver *drives off into the sunset leaving his traumatized sister behind* “why can’t I save the city and my relationship” Queen. Who needs a hug: Thea and Oliver. Basically they should just hug each other, like, all the time. They’re about the only two regular characters I still care about. Also Quentin could probably do with a hug. And Laurel should be resurrected so she can get a hug. Who needs to get out of their current relationship: I don’t really know Oliver’s current relationship status because I haven’t been watching really but he could do with being single for a while. Not forever, necessarily, but his romantic history is so freaking messy at this point and it’s exhausting to care about Who the writers love: For god knows what reason at this point, Felicity Who needs a better storyline: Part of me wants to say Felicity but they’ve wasted so many storylines and so much screen time on her already to no avail, so I’m gonna say Diggle. I miss when he wasn’t just the third wheel on O/T/A and had his own relationships with characters and his own concerns about the city. Now it just sort of feels like he shows up to fight just cause. Who has an amazing redemption arc: Nyssa going from “attempting to kill the Lance family” to being like the unofficial guardian of the Lance family was pretty great tbh. I’m also seriously hoping for a Black Siren redemption because it would be amazing, so fingers crossed! Who is hot af:Dinah! Laurel! Lance! Who belongs in jail: I mean they’re technically all lawless vigilantes lmao but I’m gonna say Felicity for all this Helix bs or Curtis for basically manipulating Felicity and Oliver into have drunk nonconsensual sex.
Who needs to be revived from the dead: Dinah Laurel Lance
Favourite Female: Hey guess what, it’s Dinah Laurel Lance! Favourite Male: I guess either Oliver or John especially from the earlier seasons. I miss their Big Belly Burger hangouts, man.3 Other Favourite Characters: Thea Queen, Quentin Lance, Nyssa al Ghul3 OTPs: Lauriver, Moira/Walter, and uhhhh I guess Dyla? I mean, I feel like they keep having the same argument about ARGUS over and over again which is kind of troubling but hopefully they can resolve it and move on.Notp: O/F please stop torturing those characters and us with their terrible, terribly written angst-fest.Funniest character: I’m gonna go Thea or Quentin.Prettiest character: Dinah Laurel Lance (is this a surprise? I literally tag all her gifsets with “a goddess”)Most Annoying Character: Felicity although Curtis is really trying to usurp her so they might tie actually.Most badass character: Laurel or Nyssa. I love both their journeys and how it’s shaped them into the amazing people they are. But tbh almost every character on this show is some form of badass.Character I’d like as my BFF: I’d want to be best friends with Laurel and Thea together cause c’mon they’re a package deal. Female Character I’d Marry: You can put me in an alien dream world if you want if it’d let me marry Dinah Laurel Lance.Male Character I’d Marry: Hmmmm. Pretty much every male character currently on the show is kind of fucked up in some way or form. I’mma go Walter. Or maybe Constantine. Does Constantine count?Character I hate/dislike/least like: Felicity purely because for inexplicable reasons they keep wasting screen time and storylines that never go anywhere on her. If she were less focused on it’d probably be Malcolm here.
Anon hate can get old~ the Olicity makes no sense, it can out of nowhere, it will never be endgame BS is really getting on my ever loving nerve. So let’s look at how Olicity can to be (and will be endgame)!
The first time Oliver meets Felicity he thinks he can play her. Well, he found out quickly that wasn’t the case.
He thought he could charm her. Instead he was the one charmed.
Season 2 brought all kinds of wonderful Olicity moments! She went from IT Support to partner.
As the show progressed so did their relationship!
They may have broken up but their feelings for each other remain.
So I get that Olicity isn’t everyone’s cup of tea, but I will defend my OTP to the end~ my Sweet Badass Arrow and my Precious Badass Cupcake!!

“Hey Felicity!” You walked in the lab as you greeted Felicity. “Hey Y/N. Good morning.”
You put your bag on a chair opposite you and removed your jacket. “Is anyone using the gym?” With a few clicks, she shook her head and simply answered with a ‘no’. You thanked her and peacefully went to the gym.
The barbell hit your eye and you immediately walked over to it. You put both hands on the barbell and propelled your body. With the same action, you began moving up and down with the barbell in your hand. The sound of the metal to metal contact drew attention to Oliver. You stood there hanging as you smiled at him. “Someone seems to break a sweat this morning.” He chuckled.
“Good morning to you too Oliver.” You let go of the metal bar and walked over to the weights. You laid on the “stretcher” and got hold of the metal that on each side had the metal weights. You slowly rose the weights. Oliver kept looking at you, the way your muscle contracted. “Mind helping me?” You asked. He blinked a few times and nodded. “Yeah.” He stood behind you and gently held the metal weights. You tried not to look at him but his face…God he was irresistible not to look at.
Suddenly you felt the weights being handed off you. A pair of soft lips met yours. You tried to snap out of the
moment but you couldn’t. You had feelings for Oliver for some time now and you
thought he never noticed you. Well he noticed now! His warm hands cupped your
hands. You gasped as he laid on you. Suddenly it hit you. You remembered that Felicity was watching
you through the cameras. “Oliver, wait.” He was out of breath already. “There
are-” He put his index finger on your lips. “She wasn’t here when I arrived.” “Yeah well, what if someone comes?”
“Let them watch.” He attacked your lips and you gently
pulled his lower lip. His hands roamed around your body until they reached your pants. He removed them agonizingly slow that you huffed loudly enough for him to hear you. “Hurry up Oliver.” He giggled. His finger found your core and gently teased your clit. Your heart was about to explode and you began seeing tiny black stars. He flickered your clit and a knot began forming. You inserted a finger, then another…and another. He gently pumped his fingers in and out of you as he watched your reaction and kissed you with every moan. As you clenched around his fingers, he quickly removed his jeans and briefs and entered you. You kept looking at his beautiful eyes.
You nodded so that he can start thrusting and he did. He filled up every single space in you. “Come for me.” He whispered in your ear in a demanding voice. Your moans were making Oliver thrust harder inside of you. His mouth found your neck and marked you as his. His warm tongue danced around your neck. Your skins slapping together made you both breathing heavier. The knot was tied enough and you let go. He let his warm liquids inside of you. He lifted your shirt and bra and began sucking on your erect nipples. The groans coming out of Oliver’s mouth was sending you overboard again. He can fight, he’s sexy and he can make a girl cum three times? Damn.
There was a sound of a door opening. You both looked at each other and smiled. “Wanna go to my room?”
Summary: Sometime after 4x10. While Felicity is still in the hospital after being shot. She’s struggling and Oliver comforts her and helps her with something. Olicity fluffiness
Note: It’s been forever since I’ve written anything. My computer was weird and completely erased everything, and in that aftermath I was feeling terrible and completely blocked. I seriously considered completely leaving the fandom. But I had a little spark last night and this came from that. I hope you enjoy. Please let me know what you think.
Here goes nothing…
Oliver Queen wasn’t entirely sure what caused him to wake from his peaceful sleep. He opened his eyes and took in his surroundings. It didn’t take long to recognize the nondescript white walls and the faint smell of disinfectant.
Hi everyone! great episode last night! So I wanted to try another fun fanfiction rec thing to share our love for our favorite authors.

We all know how Felicity Smoak can to be a part of OTA but I think she was badass WAY before then! My “ah ha” moment can early in season 1 when Felicity was summoned to Walter Steele’s office (her bosses, bosses boss) and began by telling him off! She is indeed a Precious Badass Cupacke!
She has proven over and over how tough she is! What’s your favorite BADASS Felicity moment? Tagging some people but would love if everyone shared theirs!
a/n: it’s been in my head all morning so
He looked up at her, “Yes?”
“We need to go out,” she said, “It’s been a month.”
“We go out every night,” he replied.
“You know that’s not what I mean,” she sighed heavily, “I need to spend some time with you alone.”
He frowned as he looked back down at the sleeping newborn in his arms. There had barely been a moment when he wasn’t focused on their daughter. He didn’t want to let anyone else but him and Felicity to take care of her; he even made sure there were baby safe spaces in the bunker while they were on the streets.
“Oliver, please,” her lip started to quiver.
He stood carefully, holding the baby against his chest with one hand, “Hey, don’t cry,” he whispered, “I’m sorry if I haven’t been giving you the attention you need.”
“If,” she snapped, but still managed to keep her voice low.
He cringed, “I’m sorry I haven’t been giving you the attention you need.”
“I know you’re excited about being a dad and I’m excited about all of this too,” she said, “But I need you.”
God, the last thing he wanted to do was ignore Felicity. The love of his life, his soon to be wife, and the mother of his child. She deserved so much more than this. He wasn’t about to screw up this relationship and honestly he was glad that she spoke up. They were getting much better at communicating their problems.
“I love you so much, Felicity,” he leaned in and kissed her forehead gently, “I promise that hasn’t changed.”
She looked up into his eyes and nodded, “I love you too.”
“Now, how about you take Sleeping Beauty, and I’ll call John,” he handed over their daughter to her.
She shifted slightly, but Felicity held her close, “Shhh it’s okay,” she rubbed her back gently.
Felicity really was a great mom and he enjoyed seeing this side of her.
“Hopefully John and/or Lyla can watch her for a night. Then I’m going to take you out and show you a good time,” he kissed her cheek.
Notes: I’m not sure that this is all that wonderful but I tried. Plus it adds in a personal story when I had an embarrassing moment on a subway train and fell into a handsome stranger’s lap because of lotion.
