I haven’t actually laid eyes on all the footage yet, but I strongly suspect that inside this little puppy are the answers to all of our burning questions. Oh, my camera. Of course. I forgot that I was documenting the entire evening.
Anyone who’s read/followed my blog knows I am a big Chlollie shipper. Oliver Queen and Chloe Sullivan of Smallville are my OTP. I loved Justin Hartley in Smallville and he is why I was so excited for a Green Arrow series even if I was a little bummed Justin Hartley wasn’t cast (Stephen Amell quickly squashed that feeling).
Oliver Queen and Chloe Sullivan became my OTP during this scene in 9x12, Warrior:
It is my favorite scene of theirs. The chemistry and sexual tension was off the charts. It was (in my opinion) one of the hottest scenes in the whole series.
I started watching Arrow with no expectations (good or bad). I knew the basis of the Green Arrow comics by then, even though I had never read any, and I knew where the writers were going with the love interest angle (I never really got on board with this “intended” love interest).
I started shipping Oliver Queen and Felicity Smoak during this scene:
They became my OTP in this scene:
Ever since then I have been hoping against hope that Arrow would do a Chlollie “learn how to shoot a bow scene” with Olicity. I knew the chances of a scene like that were pretty damn slim, but it was still one of my top Olicity wishes. Then I watched 5x20 and we got this:
THIS WAS GOLD TO ME!!! IT THRILLED ME TO NO FREAKING END!!!
The scene is the Olicity equivalent to this:
I cannot express my delight enough with the parallels between these scenes in Smallville and Arrow!!! I’m still freaking dying over it!!
And both scenes led to this:
Chlollie shooting a bow & arrow = Olicity and the salmon ladder!!
I’m still flailing!! I don’t know if I’ll recover from this. I need some lovely, talented person to create a Chlollie/Olicity fanvid of these scenes!!
