My brain’s latest bedtime story

Short info beforehand: 

  1. This includes major spoilers for 5x08, so if you didn’t watch yet, better don’t read this. ;)
  2. This isn’t meant as an alternative to how things played out in 5x08 because what I have seen of that episodes really was perfect. My brain just came up with this other idea that is more like a fanfic idea or something, so this is in no way meant to diminish the 100th episode.

It’s not Oliver & Co. being caught in a dream world, but Oliver and Felicity instead. They share a hallucination.

Just like in the episode neither of them knows that this isn’t their reality. That is why, when they wake up next to each other in their marital bed in the Queen’s mansion, they start the day like a couple does. They welcome the day with slow, lazy morning sex.

Their day continues with what seems like their daily routine. They have breakfast with Oliver’s parents and Thea. After that Robert and Felicity head to Queen Incorporated, while Oliver goes to the mayoral office. During dinner there are all the little teases of when they will finally have their first child, especially since Felicity skips the wine. She insists that she is not pregnant, but she shares a look with Oliver because they just started trying. 

It really is like the perfect life. Felicity and Moira get along well, Felicity and Robert even better. Everyone is happy and there are no real worries.

Until the memories come back, maybe triggered by nothing specific. They just come back. Oliver realizes it first, and he talks to Felicity. She doesn’t believe him at the beginning, but eventually she does, and they agree that they need to leave. Oliver has to say goodbye to his parents and to everyone else who is not part of his real life anymore, at least not like that.

Once they are back alone in the bunker that night, everyone else having left already, Oliver asks Felicity if she is alright. Felicity shruggs her shoulder, unsure if she really is alright. Oliver just nodds quietly, understanding exactly what she means because he feels the same way. And then Felicity looks at him with tears in her eyes.

“Why did you tell me?”

Oliver frowns. “It wasn’t real, Felicity.”

“It felt real to me,” she answers with barely audible voice. “Didn’t it feel real to you too?”

“Of course it did,” Oliver whispered, “and you can believe me that I wanted to stay. I wanted to stay with my parents and Tommy. I wanted to stay married to you and live the life we had there. It was… There was just one thing I wanted more.”

“And that was?”

“I wanted to keep my promise to you. I told you I would never lie to you again, so I didn’t even if meant losing you again.”


Look it’s Jemma and Kathy (jules’ mum)
