Summary: After a rough night, reader wakes up with the worst hangover and the news that her long time crush is planning a romantic dinner for his date.
Warnings: Reader is a crazy dickhead.
This is my entry for @tatortot2701 ‘s AU Writing challenge! (I believe she has still some prompts available) I hope you like it! Tried to make it angsty but I somehow couldn’t.
“Oh man, oh man… Not again.” You groaned as the first rays of sunlight hit your lids, your arms wrapping around the pillow as you bent it over your head. “This is the last time I’ll–” You were sure your tongue had been replaced by sandpaper.
“It won’t.” The deep and loud voice resonated right in both sides of your temples, making you moan, the soft cushion muffling the sound. “Your relationship with vodka is the longest affair you’ve ever had.” He mocked, still leaning against the door frame, his playful smirk getting wider as he saw you showing him your middle finger.
The morning after the championships is a different universe. All of the foxes are gathered in the girls’ suite, most of them nursing hangovers, and watching the news. They’ve dragged the bean bag chairs over from the monsters’ place. Andrew and Neil are pressed together in one, and Allison and Renee are in the other, Renee casually running her hands through Allison’s hair. Aaron sits on the windowsill, managing to look less pissed off than usual. Kevin and Matt share the couch, and Dan perches in Matt’s lap. Nicky is sprawled across the floor.
The news is in the middle of a segment about their win, and most of them are practically beaming with pride. The clip of Kevin’s final goal is playing over and over, and Kevin is trying to hide how pleased he is, but no one feels like mocking him for it today. They’re all proud of each other. For the first time ever the foxes know the taste of victory, and nothing can spoil it for them.
The screen changes, cutting away from the coverage of the game, to a grim faced reporter. “In breaking news, Riko Moriyama, captain of the Ravens’ Exy team has been found dead from an apparent self inflicted gunshot wound. This is the second death in college Exy this season, following the death of the Palmetto Foxes Seth G—”

Author’s Note: Welcome to my Olicity Christmas AU! This is the story that I wrote during NaNoWriMo 2014, so its all finished and I’m just editing it now so the updates will be fairly regular. Note: THIS IS AU. Meaning this is not set during the canon-verse of the show. Same characters though, just no island for Oliver and no vigilante business. Sorry about that! This is also meant to be a bit cheesy: think Hallmark Channel Christmas Movie starring our favorite duo! I know, right? ITS TOO MUCH!
Oliver Queen had been avoiding his mother’s phone calls all week long and he knew he’d used up his last credible avoidance the day before when he’d faked a last-minute emergency meeting with the shareholders. So when his assistant buzzed through to his office to tell him his mother was on line one, well, he knew his number was up. He told her he’d take it.
Reluctantly, Oliver turned away from the business reports he was reviewing on his oversized monitor and picked up the receiver on his office phone. “Oliver Queen,” he said in greeting.
“It’s about time you took my call,” his mother’s crisp voice replied. “If I didn’t know any better I’d say you’ve been avoiding me.”
Because that’s exactly what he’d been doing and this was his mother’s way of letting him know that she knew it. “I’ve been busy, Mother. You and Dad the ones who wanted me to take an interest in running Queen Consolidated. You’ve got your wish, or rather he did, but it doesn’t afford me a lot of free time.”
Any hope that his pointing this out would get her off his case disappeared with her next words. “No, you just don’t want me to harass you about your father’s will.”
As the years go by, it gets harder to shake off the head-and-stomach-achey aftereffects of a night of drinking. Hangovers seem to get worse as we get older — and it’s not your imagination. It is, unfortunately, science.
