Hey everybody! I have been wanting to do a fic rec for a while, but I haven’t been able to find the time to do it. Luckily now that school and finals are over, I finally can! I kinda tried to organize this fic rec by categories and stuff and I got really carried away lol, but I hope you enjoy!
SOME OF MY FAVORITE FICS (Not necessarily recent fics, just fics I LOVE (not all of my favorites bc we’d be here for days), and for the recent fics that are also my favorites, I put them in the recent section):
Sportsmanlike Conductby @mogirl97: Overall one of my favorite sports AU’s! It has both fluff and angst, and I literally couldn’t stop reading it! I originally read it when it first came out, and each update made me so happy! Not to mention, hockey is literally my favorite sport (and I may or may not be a Flyers super fan) so this fic was especially fun to read! It all begins in college, when Felicity meets Oliver Queen, a handsome and talented hockey player! They hit it off immediately, and their relationship is so good, but of course, things get in the way! I HIGHLY RECOMMEND! Such an amazing fic!!
Times Like Theseby @anthfan: I REREAD THIS EVERY SINGLE NIGHT I’M NOT EVEN KIDDING (i literally just re-read it and finished it before I started making this post)! If you have free time, go read this fic, and if you don’t have free time, drop what you’re doing, make time, and go read this fic! This fic is so good, and all of Oliver and Felicity’s interactions are so well done. I actually only came across this story a few months ago, and I am so mad I didn’t find it sooner, but now that I have read it, I can’t stop reading it over and over! It begins with Felicity’s stalker and cousin, Nate, coming back into her life, and of course, Oliver and Dig doing everything they can to protect her. SO GOOD. SO SO SO SO GOOD. I’m not gonna lie, this fic made me cry, and I rarely ever cry, so that should tell you how AMAZING this fic is!
The Firebird by @supersillyanddorky06: Am I gonna rec every single one of Matty’s fics? Yes. And the Firebird is NO EXCEPTION! This fic was recently finished (ending was super amazing) and if you’re looking for an amazing, riveting fic to read, go READ IT RIGHT NOW! I literally would not put this fic down when I first read it, and everytime I go back and re-read it, I read it from start to finish because its SO GOOD(lol the amount of HW i’ve been able to complete has gone way down since I started reading matty’s fics). This fic is an Al-Sahim story, but has Oliver in Felicity’s house every night, not saying a word, and watching Tv with her, after Felicity finds Oliver about to kill someone one night. Basically, Oliver starts seeking Felicity after that night, and you’ll have to see what happens! Honestly tho, I don’t know how to describe this fic (it’s too amazing to put into words), so just go READ IT!
Forever is Composed of Nowsby @dust2dust34 and @so-caffeinated: I’m pretty sure everyone has read this fic, but that’s because it’s only the best thing to ever exist! I read this fic a while ago, but lost it, and when I found it again, not only was it completed, but there was a SEQUEL and I SCREAMED OUT LOUD BECAUSE OBVIOUSLY! Such a good fic, and as a person who doesn’t even like children, I fell in love with Ellie Queen (believe me that is saying a lot, like i hate kids, but this story made me absolutely love Ellie) ! This fic has so much amazing fluff, and good angst, and just a wonderful wonderful plot. I love having the Queen fam in it, and every single chapter is just so good. It begins with Ellie Queen, Oliver and Felicity’s daughter, being brought into the past to escape Zoom, when Felicity and Oliver are not together, and haven’t even accepted their feelings for each other. SO GOOD. Such a great idea for a fic, that was made into a beautiful story, and I love it so much!
With our Backs to the Wall (Darkness will Fall)by @theirhappystory: ONE OF MY ALL TIME FAVORITES LIKE I CAN’T EXPLAIN GUYS ITS SO SO GOOD!! I am the biggest sucker for Army AU’s and age differences and this fic touches upon both of those and does it so well. Every single moment in this fic I absolutely love, and I really can’t put into words how good it is. You have to read it. You just have to. It starts with Oliver returning from war, coming back to a home with Felicity, who is looking much different and more mature then when he lost saw her. Oliver struggles with keeping his feelings and thoughts in check, and it is GLORIOUS! GO READ IT! I LOVE THIS FIC SO SO SO MUCH!
Or Forever Hold Your Peaceby @katanabaabe: Such an incredibly angsty and beautiful fic, that you won’t be able to put down! I came across this fic a long time ago, and I am still just as obsessed with it now as I was then. I loved how this story was done, and I loved the way that Oliver and Felicity’s relationship plays out. I LOVE ANGST, and this fic had such well done angst it was impossible to put down. It begins with Oliver comforting Felicity after she is very upset over what happened with her fiancé, Ray Palmer, and things escalate. Such a good fic!
Where There’s Smoak There’s Fireby FelOllie @littlered-sourwolf: THIS IS SUCH AN AMAZING FIC! I have re read this story countless times, and I think it gets better each time. I love, love, love, the way Felicity and Oliver’s friendship plays out, with tons of sexual tension and teasing, and the angst (oh my god the angst is so good guys) all just is written together so beautifully you have to go read it! It begins with Oliver and Felicity, five years after the count took her, being the best of friends. I don’t want to spoil too much, but all I can say is READ IT because you will not regret it! Amazing amazing story!
OKAY I PUT THINGS AFTER THE CUT BECAUSE AT THIS POINT IT WAS GETTING REALLY LONG:
Holy shit you guys it’s been a while and I’m so sorry. I hope there won’t ever be that big of a gap ever again.
Anonymous: -Tyler Seguin smut pls!! Could it be about it being your first time?
Requested: Yes | No
Word Count: 5928
Warnings: smut, swearing, quick mention of blood, virginity
When I moved to Dallas three years ago, the last thing that I had expected was to run into the apparent resident fuckboy and hockey superstar, Tyler Seguin. If you would tell me that I’d be losing my virginity to him, and he’d be my boyfriend, well, I’d laugh in your face.
Not requested, but a quick little ice skating imagine with some fluff.
You’re back in Toronto with Shawn for the weekend, and you two decided to pick Aaliyah up from hockey practice.The cool air hits you as soon as you enter the rink. Shawn’s warm hand finds yours, intertwining your fingers as he leads you toward the bleachers. You take a seat beside him, immediately searching the ice for Aaliyah, but in their gear, all the girls look the same. You still watch in awe, completely entertained by watching them scrimmage. Shawn lets go of your hand only to wrap his arm around your shoulder, pulling you closer to himself and sharing his warmth with you. As the practice comes to an end, Shawn impulsively says to you, “Let’s skate."
You look at him for a moment, checking to see if he’s really serious. You had planned to just come and pick up Aaliyah and then take her out to dinner with the two of you. Skating was never part of the plan. "The rink isn’t even open to the public right now.” You respond.
“I used to play hockey here all the time. I’m sure they wouldn’t mind. The rink is usually empty for twenty minutes after practices before they resurface.” He confidently responds.
You used to love going to the ice rink near your house growing up. You’ve never skated with Shawn before, but suddenly it’s something you realize want to do. “Okay, if they don’t mind.” You shrug.
“Perfect, I’ll be right back.” He says with a grin before jogging down to the bottom of the bleachers and heading toward the front of the rink in search of someone who works here.
He’s back in less than ten minutes with two pairs of socks and hockey skates and the biggest smile on his face. “They said we have fifteen minutes before the Zamboni comes out.” He says, handing over the smaller skates. You pull the socks on, then put the skates on. As you’re lacing them up, you ask, “How did you know what size to get me?”
He just gives you this look, almost like he’s offended by the question, “Babe, i know your shoe size.” He tells you like there’s no way he wouldn’t.
“Oh, thanks. I didn’t know you knew it.” Because you haven’t been dating very long, and you’re almost positive you’ve never told him. He’s a lot more observant than you’ve given him credit for.
You’re both on the ice a couple of minutes later. You know Shawn played hockey, but you weren’t a stranger to ice skating growing up either, and you’re glad for that. Shawn grabs your hand in his before the leading you onto the ice. He’s pretty steady immediately, but it takes about half of a lap around for you to get the hang of it. After the first lap, you start picking up speed, and you catch the surprised look on his face before laughing and speeding up even more.
Once you reach the far end of the rink, you turn to Shawn, “Race ya,” You tell him, taking off before he has a chance to respond.
Of course, he catches up to you and wins, reaching the opposite end of the rink first, but when you get there a second later, he says, “Hey, you’re pretty good.”
“You have no faith in me.” You respond, purposely teasing him.
“I just didn’t know you skated.” He defends himself.
“Wanted me to have to lean on you for support.” You accuse.
He reaches for your hand, and you don’t protest, “Nah babe, I know you can support yourself.” He says, bringing up how independent you are and always have been. He pulls you a little closer, though, wrapping his arms around you. You hug him briefly before untangling yourself from his arms and grabbing onto one of his hands. You skate hand in hand, before letting go. You let him skate first and follow closely behind him, doing everything he does for a little while. He shows you crossovers and tries to teach you to skate backwards. It doesn’t work and you give up after a minute. “Shawn?” You ask, and he shoots you a questioning look. “Can you pull me?”
He laughs and shakes his head, but holds tight to your hand and starts pulling you along the ice for a while before eventually pulling you and letting go so you’d glide ahead. You laugh and playfully chase each other around the ice until you spot Aaliyah walk out from the locker room with a few of her teammates. She stops at the edge of the ice, saying goodbye to her teammates as they head for the exit. You check the time, and regretfully say, “I guess it’s time to go.” As you wave to Aaliyah, who just gives you and Shawn a confused look.
“One more lap,” Shawn says with a smile, before taking your hand and pulling you along at a leisurely pace.
