Forever Is Composed of Nows, 40/42 (Olicity, Mature)
Summary: Sometime in the not-so-distant future, things aren’t going all that well. At least that’s the story Oliver and Felicity are told when a supposed time-traveler (and their supposed friend who is a supposed superhero supposedly named The Flash) pops up in the lair with a toddler in tow… who calls them momma and daddy. The Flash can’t quite control when he’s going at this point and there’s a big bad chasing him through the years. The future isn’t safe for little Elizabeth Queen at the moment (even if The Flash could get her there), but her once and future parents haven’t got a clue what to do with her. Slade Wilson, however… he might have his own agenda when he finds out his nemesis is apparently a father. (See Chapter 1 for additional Author Notes.)

In the haze that follows Ellie’s departure, he sees her.
Oliver drifts about in a dreamlike in-between place. He’s not asleep, not really, but he’s surely not conscious either. She’s fresh enough in his mind’s eye that he catches wisps of her blonde curls on the edges of his vision and hears peels of her laughter ring out in his ears.
That first little “Hi, Daddy” - the first instant he’d ever heard her voice - is on repeat in his mind.
