Happy Friday! So this is my attempt to both thank awesome fanfic
for their amazing work and offer my recommendations to anyone who is
interested. Here are the fantastic fanfic stories I read this week! Click on the titles to get the links! They

her. Will he be able to stay focused on the job or blur the lines?

Our Version of Events multi-chapter by @machawicket and @geneeste -
Action star Ollie Queen is trying to clean up his image and land parts
that require him to do more than appear shirtless while fighting
stuntmen. Pop star Felicity Smoak wants to be seen as an adult in time
for the release of her new, grittier album. And talent manager John
Diggle’s got an idea about what coverage of Oliver and Felicity’s brand
new (and totally fake) romance could do for them both.
In Another Life (I Could be Your Man) multi-chapter by @angelicmisskitty -
Their lives couldn’t be more different - and yet Oliver
can’t take his eyes off the beautiful blonde woman that leaves the
subway every morning at 7.43am. There is something about her that makes
him look up every morning - something that also makes him aware he’ll
never be good enough for her, or that she’d even notice him. He had no
idea how much his life would change the day he rushed over to help
her…Olicity AU - no Lian Yu, no saving the city (at least not in the
way we know from Arrow :D ) LOVE LOVE, LOVE!

growing back together.
When Locksley Met… multi-chapter by @emmilynestill - A collection of
one-shots wherein Oliver and Felicity’s fierce (and fluffy) guard dog

Snowfall multi-chapter by sentencefragments - With her car stuck in the snow and the only thing slightly warm her best

Pieces of Always multi-chapter by @so-caffeinated and @dust2dust34 - Ongoing non-linear collection of family moments for the Queens. You do

Intermezzo by @nodecaff4me for Olicity Valentine’s Smut-a-thon - Oliver

wearing any underwear…”
Picture Perfect multi-chapter by @thebookjumper - She’s not really sure what prompted her to do it.
Okay, that might be a bit of a lie. Sure, she’s not completely positive
of her reasoning, but she would bet Oliver’s fortune that it had quite a
bit to do with the four empty bottles of wine littering her counter top
and the three other women lounging around her apartment in various
states of undress.She doesn’t want to be cute anymore. She’s sexy and she’s going to prove it. SO AWESOME!
Gather Your Darkness by @imusuallyobsessed - What happened right after Oliver came into the bunker and said, “I’m
shutting everything down.” The bunker is quiet, Oliver’s asleep, but
Felicity and Digg can’t just leave him.
Spoilers for this week’s Daiya… And in the 9th inning, Sawamura closes out the game by catching the pitch Ouno hits and getting him out at first base. Seiou wins 3-1, with Hakuryuu scoring one run in the 8th inning due to a screw up during a double-play. Ouno shakes hands with Sawamura at the end and Mima keeps staring at Miyuki. The audience is surprised by how well Seidou played with Miyuki at the center of the team and acknowledge Sawamura’s pitching. At the end, Furuya tells Sawamura, “Nice pitching,” only to have Sawamura reply that he wasn’t satisfied with it since he allowed too many runners to advance to third base and he had to rely on the other players to get the outs many times. Furuya replies, “That’s good… Then we can compete.” That surprises the team.
Furuya thinks now that it doesn’t matter how well he pitches if they end up losing. If their opponents pitch better, they can’t win, and it all ends once they lose. That’s why he refuses to let them score and forces them down with overwhelming strength. The ace is the one who lets the team win, who allows the team to continue winning. For him, the mission he wants to accomplish is to not let things end.
The second match held shortly after the Hakuryuu match is against Hanazawa from Tochigi. With mainly third years playing (the first years got a little bit of match time but did nothing significant), Kaneda started off as the pitcher but was substituted for Kawashima. Hanazawa scored 4 runs in the first inning, but Seidou put the pressure on them and won 8-6 after Takatsu had a 2 run RBI-hit in the 8th inning. With that, Seidou won 4 games consecutively during Golden Week, and we see Mima finally going up to Miyuki and asking if he has a LINE account at the end.
6 mile green way run today. Broke it down to 2 hit the Fitbit button by accident. Great run, the Hoka shoe has more spring and put a bandage on blister. Run was hilly all the way so really good. Middle 4 miles 9:15, 8:50, 9:03, 9:19 were fast so shoes are fast but you feel like you lean forward a lot more and my back cramped left side last mile so I just coasted in. I am going to stick with them. This is only third run. Feeling good…food and shower time. Happy Friday everyone.💪💪🇺🇸🇺🇸🏃🏃
“Anything new? Let’s see, well… Facebook went public and Edward Snowden went private. Kim and Kanye had a baby, so now there’s another Kardashian to not keep up with. Paula Deen is out, gay marriage is in, and a teacher in California’s out for letting her students get it in. Justin Bieber got a hit and run, Chris Brown got a hit and run, Rihanna got hit and still didn’t run. Oprah gave Lindsey $2 million. Cunnilingus gave Michael Douglas throat cancer. Michael Douglas gave guys everywhere another excuse not to do that. Egypt went crazy, Amanda Bynes went crazier, and the NSA checks our phones like a crazy ex-girlfriend. Oh, and Texas hates women, Florida hates blacks, and everyone hates everything with the exception of Angelina Jolie who is totally awesome.”
