Today I learned that if a character is blonde and has glasses it’s a Felicity ripoff. I don’t know about you, but that annoys the hell outta me. Blonde with glasses is not a Felicity thing, hacking is not a Felicity thing. Hackers helping superheroes existed long before Felicity in the character of Oracle and Chloe (Smallville). Felicity doesn’t own the geeky girl helping to catch bad guys. She is not special and it would be nice if her fans would see that. Felicity Smoak hasn’t started a trend. There are a lot of characters who do exactly the same thing.

Oh look, that is Oracle. Helping superheroes thru her computer skills oh and her wheelchair storyline which was almost given to Felicity.

Let’s not forget about Chloe Sullivan. Oh looks, she is blonde and has computer skills. Felicity totally ripped off her hair color. 

Don’t forget about Nell Jones who helps the NCIS team since 2010 thru her computer skills as well. Madness isn’t it? 

And let’s not forget about Penelope Garcia who’s blonde hair and clothes style scream Felicity Smoak. Some would argue that Arrow also stole from Penelope’s past storyline and gave it to Felicity.

My point is: Felicity Smoak is not a special butterfly who started a trend with geeky hackers in pretty dresses. It’s not necessary to scream ripoff when a woman hacker appears because your beloved is a character patched with attributes from various characters who were popular long before her.

She has nothing original.

In the last week ALONE, oliciters have:

- Lined up at a con just to ask Katie about the “new” canary so they can laugh about it with their lil twitter friends

- Slutshamed, victim blamed and advocated rape-culture by LITERALLY looking up names/photos of WB/CW execs to place bets on who Katie slept with to get her job back, spreading viscious, slanderous lies by suggesting her re-hiring is the result of blackmail related to her leaked photos, and implying she is benefitting from the fact she was violated.

- Have offered to send people said illegally distributed, sexual content without consent to any mutual who likes the tweet.

- Have @ Katie with insults because of her re-hiring.

- Bodyshamed her.

- Have had the fucking audacity to flock to Stephen and Marc, screaming the victim and whining about how they feel “unsafe” and are being “harassed” (when people are calling them out) and bringing up hate against Emily as an excuse to justify their negativity

- After a year of mocking Laurel fans, celebrating Black Canary’s death, creating a “ByeByeBirdie” hashtag, raising money to send the writers a giftbasket for killing her, kept posting gifs of her death scene at Laurel fans and telling them to “get over it”, they are now having a fullblown meltdown and screaming fanservice and playing the victim over the fact a 5 minute guest appearance, AU version of Felicity got killed on a totally different show???? That’s nothing short of fucking karma, but go off I guess.

All of this over A. Fucking. Ship.

I’ve never come across such petty, disrespectful, self-absorbed, entitled, hateful, misogynistic, childish people in my whole fucking life. And this has all been since Saturday. FIVE FUCKING DAYS.

Anyone who is a part of the fandom and doesn’t call them out is just as bad and can fuck off right now.

Olicity Fic Rec (Part 1)

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 Conduct by @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 These by @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 Nows by @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 Peace by @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 Fire by 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!

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 countertop 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.

Olicitations Challenge: 35 Days Of Arrow

Day 12: Best Romance (Other Than Olicity)

John Diggle & Lyla Michaels:

I loved the idea of these two ever since we first saw Lyla in Season 1. She knew Diggle pretty well, she didn’t take the lies he gave about Deadshot, and the way Diggle bent to check on her in Episode 20: Home Invasion was a very lovely scene. By the time we saw them again in Season 2, I was already kind of over Carly, although it seemed like she was the producers’ choice for Digg. Glad she wasn’t, because I like Lyla very much. :)

I went on a huge rant/vent on twitter. I’ve lost count of how many times over the last week I’ve seen oliciters say that Laurel wasnt heroic and was selfish and only cared about herself (honestly wtf kinda show were they watching??)

I will never deny that Laurel did things that were morally questionable and made impulsive decisions that were motivated by emotional turmoil. That’s just fucking human my guy!

I keep seeing Oliciters say that it was selfish of Laurel to resurrect Sara and then keep it from Quentin, and yeah, maybe Laurel did do it because she wanted her sister back, but she also wanted Sara to have her life back and wanted her father to have his daughter back. It was never solely about her, and at that time Laurel had no reason to believe that Sara would turn out any differently to Thea (but of course Oliver isn’t subjected to this criticism for doing the same thing).

Laurel ONLY kept it from her father because Sara came back WRONG. Laurel knew it would break his heart to see Sara like that, so Laurel was biding her time to try and find a way to make Sara better. She was trying to deal with the consequences of her actions without causing anyone else any unnecessary pain. She did that to SPARE her father from pain. NONE OF THIS was ever Laurel doing things maliciously or solely in her own self-interest.

It irritates the fuck outta me that these people actively twist things to paint Laurel in the worst possible light yet refuse to see the hypocrisy. They hold Laurel to an unattainable level of heroism that literally NOT A SINGLE character on the show meets, yet she’s the only one they demonize.

I mean, Felicity was willing to let the whole city die to save Oliver, she WOULD HAVE run that risk if it hadn’t been for Ray literally fucking saying to her “he’s just one life against the city’s”. Not to mention she did this whilst emotionally toying with Ray by dating him whilst she was clearly more interested in Oliver.

Yeah, i can forgive that maybe in the moment she was panicked and she loved him and was scared, but that single interaction and the implications of it are FAR MORE stemmed in selfishness than ANYTHING Laurel is demonized for. So if you can hold Felicity exempt from that, you literally have no fucking leg to stand on if you’re trying to hate Laurel.

Oh my god, The Olicity fans are actually trying to get Gail Simone fired just because she doesn’t like they're ship. They don’t even care about the fact that she is one of the best female comic book writers ever and has done soo much for women representation within comics but NOO that not important to them at all. Screw them. Gail deserves better than having to deal with them.

Olicity Hiatus Fic-a-Thon

Hello fellow Oliciters!

I have plans, big plans, to get us through the hiatus-induced, lack of Olicity that begins with the ending of the Season Finale tonight!

But first I want to gauge interest in the idea..

The plan is this:

Every Wednesday I will post a writing prompt. All participants will have until the following Wednesday to write, beta, and post their response to the prompt.

When you post, tag the fic #Olicity Hiatus Fic-a-Thon.

That’s it! No length requirements, no rating requirements, just anything your brilliant minds come up with that include the prompt idea!

This way we will all get our regular influx of Olicity goodness to fill the void left by our favorite couple not lighting up our screens every Wednesday night.

The last installment of fic will come the night before Arrow returns on Thursdays.

If you’re interested, REBLOG THIS post or MESSAGE ME to let me know. Pass it on to anyone you think might be interested. If there’s no interest, I won’t do it.

Tagging a few people I think might be interested:
