Hey me again. So I've been at dentist a lot lately (and by a lot I mean like everyday in the past week) and while sitting in the dental chair today I thought olicity plus dental work. Like Oliver broke his tooth or needs a root canal or something and he goes to the foundry gets a pair of pliers and tries to remove said tooth and Felicitys like woah no we'll go to a dentist and he's like no. Turns out Oliver is scared shitless of dentists. I would love for you to write something please. ☺️
(A silly fic. I started writing this a while ago - it’s an alternate canon ‘verse!)
“Where is your brother?”
Thea looked up from where she was parked on Roy’s lap, a goofy smile on her face. Felicity couldn’t help but smile at the sight of it - it had been two years since Roy had left Starling City, since Thea had gone after him and returned a few days later. A lot had changed, but their love for each other was still ridiculously obvious.
And if Oliver wasn’t over here ripping Roy’s arms off for the very obvious public displays of affection happening at that moment, then he was obviously elsewhere.
She was supposed to meet him at Verdant - recently reopened and already filled to the brim with a whole new wave of kids who were way too young to be there - after work to celebrate Thea’s birthday, and she’d been running a little late. Alright, a lot late, but she was here, and her boyfriend was not.
“I saw him slamming a few shots earlier,” Roy said, adjusting Thea in his lap. “He seemed crankier than usual.”
“He’s got a broken tooth,” Felicity supplied, imitating with her hands as she said, “He got hit with a lead pipe last week and he refuses to go to the dentist.” She rolled her eyes. “The idiot.”
“Oooh,” Thea said with a giggle. So she was tipsy. She clapped her hands, shaking her head. “Ollie hates the dentist! He’s probably ducked out somewhere with a bottle of tequila. He never brushed his teeth when he was little and he had to get a root canal - he literally hid from mom for an entire weekend, it was hilarious.”
“Is that so?” Felicity asked over Roy’s chuckles.
“Check the basement, he sometimes goes down there during the day.”
“Thanks, Thea.” Felicity smiled at her and gave Roy a pointed look. “If you want your limbs intact, I suggest you run the second he sees you two like this.”
“Pffft,” Roy said, but Felicity caught him checking to make sure a chair was still next to them to deposit Thea in if her brother did appear.
Felicity made her way downstairs - the code still worked, although the door was a little more stuck than it used to be - and the first thing she heard was a loud crash.
Felicity hurried down the stairs, eyes flying around the old Arrow Cave. A wave of nostalgia hit her. It had been such a long time since she’d been down there. It was still in shambles, covered in years of dust and disuse, the ground still littered with debris from when Captain Lance & Co. had crashed in and torn it apart.
She nearly stepped on an arrowhead, but dodged around it, looking for Oliver.
Another crash sounded from the far corner and Felicity picked up her pace.
“Oliver! I’m pretty sure they covered answering when your name is called back in elementary school, and…” Her words trailed off when she found him leaning against a pillar - more specifically, when she saw what he was doing. “Oliver!”
Oliver pulled the pliers out of his mouth, turning to face her with the stupidest smile on his face.
