Things I will never forgive the Arrowverse for #3485697: the missed opportunity that was an Iris-Laurel friendship
- They have so much in common they would have been able to Relate™
- Both had aspirations to join the police
- Both had dads who were really shitty and wouldn’t let them
- Both found different ways to bring truth and justice to their cities
- Both trained from a super young age how to fight
- Like the weakass heroes in their cities are late bloomers, ok, Laurel and Iris were handing people their asses from like time immemorial
- Can we say Girls Boxing Night???
- And they end up inviting like Thea and Caitlin and Linda and literally Every Girl, All The Girls
- Both are older sisters who would literally die for their little sib
- Both have dads who are again really shitty and hypocritical about
- But they both love and care for them anyway?? Joe and Quentin do not deserve them???
- No one does tbh
- Both had mothers who left them
- Iris having someone to help continue to work through the mess that is her grief and her bitterness at how unfair everything with Francine was because the writers did her dirty and just like dropped that storyline like it didn’t matter????
- Both have lost people so, so important to their lives
- Both get told on the regular that they cannot Do The Thing
- And then they both do it anyway????? Stfu boys, this is a woman’s job
- Both are literal rays of sunshine
- The power of their combined smiles would be too radiant to be seen with mortal eyes
- Just picture like, laughing over milkshakes about their vigilante dorks
arranging masked rooftop meetings with them okay like as if anyone else could
understand the hilarity
- “he told me I was someone worth being on time for” “was he ever late again after that?” “like EVERY TIME, girl, what even was that about???”
- Both are their own heroes
- Both are iconic women with decades of comic book history who deserve so
much better than these shows that are like just renting them out from DC lbr
like respect the legacy you amateurs
- Both have developed strong friendships with like everyone in their
- Their friendship would just be like the epitome of that awesomeness?????????
- Why did it not happen I am forever bitter?????????????
