Present Tense Series by @punchdrunkdoc - Felicity and Oliver are settling into Ivy Town post S3 Porsche’s and sunsets, but there’s a bit of trouble in paradise. Basically, it deals with Oliver finally allowing himself to feel all the things he’s been repressing for years. He can’t do it all on his own, though, so he and Felicity do some research and find a therapist. Dr. Martin is a totally awesome OC.
Curiosity Killed the Cat by @thatmasquedgirl- FRIENDS. This fic is so fun! Oliver is a vampire! A totally weird giant cat has started helping him on his missions around the same time he starts going to Felicity Smoak in QC’s IT department for some vigilante-related assistance. I know the premise sounds kind of odd, but TRUST ME. It’s amazing.
Hang My Head, Break My Heart (Built From All I Have Torn Apart) by @ciara2531 - OH MY GOSH. I saw this in another fic rec and couldn’t believe I had forgotten about it. It’s like a cult favorite in this fandom. I think my brain was trying to block it because this fic is beautiful, heart-breaking, and entirely gorgeous and hasn’t been updated since 2014. Felicity is homeless. She befriends Thea Queen. Everything hurts and I’m dying. (If anyone can find Ciara on Tumblr, PLEASE POINT ME HER WAY.)
Hunted by @spicypepper_sweetsugar - (Anyone have a Tumblr for her?) Felicity is a hybrid (think Klaus from TVD, as far as I can tell). Oliver is a hunter. He gets contacted to find her, and it turns out she contacted him because she needs his help. Her Maker is planning something and she can’t stop it without him.
Aunt Felicity by @honorthedeadbyfighting - Tommy and Laurel were married with two children. They died in a car accident, leaving custody of their kids with Tommy’s sister Felicity. She’s adjusting to losing her brother, suddenly having two kids, and the super-hot Oliver Queen that the kids seem to like better than her and is also dealing with losing two of his best friends. Heartbreaking, beautiful, and sweet.
The Bodyguard Series by @kayleegee - (anyone have her Tumblr?) McKenna comes back to Starling City and interviews for the job of Felicity Smoak’s bodyguard. I totally didn’t think I’d like this, but I LOVE IT. McKenna is smart, dedicated to her job, is utterly charmed by Felicity, and starts to put the pieces together pretty quickly when the vigilante keeps saving her boss. There needs to be more bodyguard AUs in this fandom, tbh. They’re one of my greatest weaknesses.
Timejacked by @queenklee - Felicity and Oliver go to a WWII-themed Escape the Room. Turns out, it’s actually a portal-thing and they end up on the beaches of France, behind enemy lines, during the Second World War. Amazing, fun, heartbreaking, and totally awesome.
We’ve Come to Burn Your Kingdom Down by @miss_alli - (anyone have her Tumblr?) - BRATVA AU. My weakness. Felicity has been on the run from her Bratva Captain father ever since she was a child. Her mom was killed and she became the charge of one John Diggle. Eventually, they can’t run far or fast enough and he has to take them to his friend Oliver Queen. As a rival Russian Bratva captain, if he can’t help them, no one can.
Darkness and Smoak by @somberclown - The tragedy of an exciting, sexy Bratva fic that only has three chapters and hasn’t been updated since April 2015. Felicity finds herself running a poker table in an underground casino (it was an accident, I swear) and it turns out, Bratva Captain Oliver Queen owns it. Oops? I LOVE THIS FIC. I WANT THE REST OF IT.
Destiny Burns by @justanother90sbaby - Bratva. Soulmates. Felicity keeps getting these weird scars, and she’s been told they’re from her soulmate. She doesn’t put any stock into that nonsense until she’s kidnapped and brought to Bratva Captain Oliver Queen. Who has all the same scars she does. (Will she finish it? Who knows! I love her either way. I’ll just read the chapters we have and be happy.)
For Blue Skies by @SJKDarling - (Anyone have her Tumblr?) FELICITY GETS CANCER. This is literally such a beautiful story. I feel so many things. It’s very realistic as well, as I’m almost positive the author is either an oncology nurse or has some personal experience with cancer. The companion piece For Darker Days is equally amazing and from Oliver’s POV.
Keeping Hope by @melsanfo - The synopsis is “A good deed on Felicity’s part lands her in the hospital, leading her to make a deal with the devil in order to keep an innocent safe.” BRATVA AU, BTW. I will read any Bratva AU. Any of them. There needs to be more. I’m so excited to see where this one is going!
Defend Not the Man, but the Mind by @alexiablackbriar13- FRIENDS. ROMANS. COUNTRYMEN. This fic is amazing! It makes me feel so many things in every chapter! Oliver was experimented on when he was on the island and now he’s not a human but some weird hybrid of predators and they’re basically biologically wired to be vigilantes now. I literally can’t wait for some righteous murder to happen to some people in this story. (Not gonna lie, mpreg is a major squick of mine. Don’t like it. Never have. Major turnoff. Thankfully, it’s only been talked about in this ‘verse and I can totally move past that. So, if it’s a squick of yours too, be not afraid! I mean… I hope I don’t have to be afraid… Alexia?)

‘I’ve been working with a company in New York called the Phantom Limb and saw them bring up a child in rehearsals, and it’s just the most wonderful place. You’re surrounded by people, amazing music, art, images, attention. And the child of actors and directors has to be peripatetic– with some bases, I hope.’
plot idea: katy dumps shawn’s ass and hooks up with harper, and maya thusly has two super cool awesome moms who love her more than the world and a wonderful support system in the matthews and shawn who does love her but no longer is pressured to be with her mom and become her official father
Sebastian always outstayed his welcome when he came to drop Frankie off - Frannie disliked it at the best of times, when he wandered around the house like it was still his and he still lived here (and she supposed that’s how he thought of it). But today she had invited Harper and Hunter over for dinner, and she really wanted him gone before they got here - it was childish and immature, she knew, but Harper was her friend, the first one she had made that was just hers in ten years, and she didn’t want Sebastian here pulling his charm offensive. She sort of wished she was Wren at times like this - if she was Wren she would say something really cool and scathing like ‘piss off Sebastian’ - except better than that - and…
She was pulled out of this daydream by the doorbell, and she frowned. Sebastian followed her out of the living room when she went to answer the door, “It’s Hunter and Harper - one of Frankie’s friends and his mum.” she answered his raised eyebrows, before opening the door with a smile.
Sebastian (obviously) stepped forward to greet them, kissing Harper on the cheek and holding his hand out to shake Hunter’s. “Great to meet you guys, finally, I’m Sebastian, Frankie’s dad.” he said. Prick, Frannie thought.
