I don’t know why I keep doing this to her, but I also needed to get out my frustrations with a man who just has been trying to creep in my mind. Hopefully it’s over now. Here you go @silhouetted-beauty love you sis <3
there’s whispers around town about the two boys who live in the forrest. the locals will talk about them with their eyes cast downward and their voices hushed, worried that they would hear them.
there would be moments, in the dead of night, that shrieks will pierce the hot. humid air and people will shudder.
they’ll warn the foolish tourists who come to their town, seeking out the two boys who makes their home in the woods and they’ll tell them to watch out, beware.
beware of the boy with gold in his eyes because if you see him then the one with emeralds won’t be too far behind.
and if you see him, your shrieks will fill the night air, shouts and pleas for help and the locals will turn their heads, ignoring the way that goosebumps rise on their flesh and pretend that they don’t have two witches who haunt their town.
In regards to the bit of controversy over the idea that Felicity needs to understand Oliver pertaining to the breakup,
Yes, Oliver is the one who broke their relationship when he lied to her (I think there’s more nuance than that but not for the sake of this argument). It’s his fault they’re broken.
BUT. Oliver is not the one who left. Felicity walked away and closed the door on their relationship. That’s not to say she shouldn’t have. But it means that Felicity is the one who has the power to open that door again. Oliver doesn’t have that power. So until Felicity is willing to revisit the relationship, no amount of growth or understanding from Oliver is going to do a thing. And Felicity won’t be willing to do that until she gains some understanding. And here’s the important distinction: understanding isn’t going to make what Oliver did right; understanding is going to make what Oliver did forgivable.
