I don’t agree! They are like Clark and Lana for me and only one thing come into my head “GET RID OF”! I don’t hate Katie, truth be told I like her, but I don’t like Laurel and honestly this whole thing “they are canon” make me sick! I don’t see chemistry, I don’t see romantic feelings, I see NOTHING! They can be good friends, but as a couple they are done. And I don’t like that writers try to obtrude their opinion upon people. Don’t do this, you better show us that it’s possible! Right now they can’t show this, that’s why I don’t believe in their romantic feelings. Not because I’m obsessed with Olicity, not because I don’t like Katie (cause I really like her), just because Laurel and Oliver have no chemistry between each other!
Yeah Katie TOTALLY wants to steal Barry from Iris… cause it not like Barry & Laurel are friends in the comics …and Its not like her and Grant are friends or anything. Word of suggestion to the OF/Arrow fandom a lot of people in the WA/Flash fandom have actually read the comics & know that BC & TF isn’t a threat to Westallen and some even actually want katie & laurel on the flash sooo nice try at trying to get a raise out of people but…
Who Does Oliver Need? The Black Canary or Felicity Smoak?
redpenandfern submitted: Hey, on my commute home I had a thought (yes, thinking about Arrow on my commute home, obsessive much?) and would love to get your thoughts being that you’re the “master of meta.” There is a segment that thinks Green Arrow must be with Black Canary because she could fight with him side by side. To me, those people seem to see him as Arrow first, (the superhero) and Oliver second, (just someone he used to be.) Therefore, Arrow’s ideal partner to them would be whoever can fight with him (never mind the fact that he already has people out in the field with him and Felicity is just as much fighting with him from the Arrowcave as anyone, but that’s just me). So I think it is interesting that this is exactly what is being explored this season…who is this person? I find it interesting that he chooses to be Arrow first, but at the end of Ep 2 admits that he doesn’t want to be. He wants a real life. Also, he says to Felicity “I thought I could be me and the Arrow…” acknowledging that he sees himself as Oliver first. The answer will likely be, he can be both. But what will that look like? I think we Oliciters see Oliver as needing Felicity because that’s the side of him we maybe connect with? Feel for? See as needing someone like Felicity. But others may feel GA needs BC. Someone to fight crime with. I don’t know much about the comics, so I could be missing what it really means to be GA. Wondering your thought on that dychotomy.
