Some people say that Olicity can not happen because Arrow is ”based” on the comics. Felicity and Oliver can not end up together in the comics because they don’t fall in love, they don’t know each other, blah, blah, blah… I disagree. My reasons? Oh I don’t know, maybe:
1.-Laurel never was a lawyer in comics (in fact she’s one of the DC Comics characters with more changes. This Laurel is very different from the Comics) then Olicity can happen.
2.-Tommy died in the first season despite the comics, then Olicity can happen.
3.-Dinah Drake was the first Black Canary, but in the show she’s only the mother of Laurel and Sarah, then Olicity can happen.
4.-Sarah Lance does not exist in the comics, but in the show she is Black Canary, then Olicity can happen.
5.-Sarah does not have her super power, then Olicity can happen.
6.-Felicity is very different in the comics, even she’s married to Ed Raymond, then Olicity can happen.
7.-Oliver and Laurel were married in the comics, but then they divorced and the two go away in their different paths, they don’t end up together as many believe, then Olicity can happen.
8.-Nyssa Raatko known as Nyssa al Ghul on Arrow is lesbian and she’s in love with Sarah Lance, and this story is completely invented and has nothing to do with Green Arrow, then Olicity can happen.
9.-On Comics, Slade lost his eye not for Oliver Queen, he lost his eye for her wife, then Olicity can happen.
10.-On Comics, Slade is offered volunteer for a medical experiment and that made him a super soldier. He thought it would help him to avoid the truth serum but he was cheated, then Olicity can happen.
11.-Slade has one boy on Arrow, in the comics he has more than one child, then Olicity can happen.
12.-Oliver and Slade were never friends and they were never in the same island, then Olicity can happen.
13.-Slade had a wife but he never loved Shado then Olicity can happen.
14.-Shado was never on the island with Oliver and she never died in the comics, then Olicity can happen. (In fact Shado rapes Oliver, I don’t know if laugh or cry)
15.-The origins of Roy and his family are very different from the show, then Olicity can happen.
16.-Star City is the city in the comics, but in the show, is called Starling City, then Olicity can happen.
17.-Oliver has a sister named Thea Queen, actually he has no sister, she is invented on Arrow. Although they wanted to base Thea as Speedy (Mia Dearden) the superheroine. Then Olicity can happen.
18.-John Diggle is invented, then Olicity can happen.
19.-Oliver Queen’s parents are dead, but in the show, Moira Queen is still alive, then Olicity can happen.
20.-This Helena Bertinelli is very, very different from the comics as Laurel Lance too, then Olicity can happen.
21.-Black Canary twice her age to Oliver Queen in the comics. (I didn’t know Laurel and Sarah were older than Oliver in the series… I think not.) Then Olicity can happen.
I could add many more examples, but I think that this is enough. TeamLaurel or other fans put as an excuse that Olicity can not happen because Oliver end up with Laurel in the comics, or because Felicity is not the same Felicity in the comics. Well I’m sorry, but Laurel is not the same in the comics that in this show and she NOT ends her days with Oliver, Slade is not the same, Sarah does not exist, Thea Queen does not exist and many more things. It’s very hypocritical how some people liked for example, Shado and Slade when the two never met in the comics, EVER. But they same people hate Olicity because it is happening. Some prefer OliverxSarah even because they believe that Sarah is Black Canary before than Olicity, the hated Olicity. Well, (Sarah & Oliver / Felicity & Oliver) both are invented, my friends. Sure, there’s a minority of fans who hate Oliver and Felicity together, of course. (And it’s not worth to say that they’re doing comics based on the Arrow show right now, because the mythology of this show is based on the old and real comics) If the writers changed so much things, then the Olicity can happen because it is one more thing changed in this TV series. And it’s not worth to say again that Oliver should end up with Laurel or nonsense like those because this show is based on the comics, when Oliver Queen ends single in comics and as producers and writers have the rights of DC Comics and Green Arrow, they can write that the wife of Oliver can end up being Felicity Smoak. Although they don’t need the rights to change what they want. Because absolutely none of the people of this series is completely identical to the comics. Felicity haters or Olicity haters too will have to find a less poor excuse based on the excuse of the comics. Everyone has the right to ship all the couples that they want in this show, but haters, stop calling Felicity a bitch or hate her or the Olicity too without reasons, at least, criticize with base, when Arrow is a new mythology of Green Arrow/Oliver Queen and everything around him in his life. It’s normal that writers change the show for the fans. It happened with Smallville more than ten years ago. Writers can not make everything like in the comics, precisely when in the comics there are so many stories and characters that are twisted. They dying, they live again, there are several versions of a same hero or heroine…That would be crazy to see on TV!!! So Olicity can happen and in fact, is going to happen, because this series needs Olicity, we need a big true love. (Even with Thea and Roy that I love them together, WE NEED Oliver and Felicity.) That’s all.
