EXCLUSIVE: 'Arrow' Cast Talks Olicity, Oliver's Journey as a Father & Who Survived the Season 5 Finale!

“I think Felicity needs a job. She needs to be employed,” Rickards offered. “So hopefully we get to see her – not so much in the Helix area, not going down the rabbit hole, but maybe working with Curtis a little bit more?”

The actress also teased her character’s on-again, off-again relationship with Oliver, after the once-engaged pair seemed to be finding their way back to each other before the explosive season five finale. Rickards presented two truths and a lie for “Olicity” in season six, cryptically sharing, “They’re already married, they’re getting married, they’re never getting married.”

“No, absolutely not,” Marcus declared, whipping the slim, polka-dot patterned piece of material from around his neck. “It looks ridiculous. And I’m not looking ridiculous at such a public event.” He concluded, thrusting the tie back in Oliver’s rather disgruntled looking face.

“Marcus. You have to wear it. It’s a wedding. Harry Potter’s wedding for Merlin’s sake.” Oliver whined, looping the tie back around Marcus’ neck and set about arranging it in a wonderfully neat Windsor knot.

“That’s exactly why I don’t want to wear it, Wood. It’s his wedding. This is probably going to be the most photographed wedding in recent years. You’re having a complete laugh if you think I’m wearing something that makes me look like a thick-necked weasel.” Marcus argued, loosening the knot which Oliver had tied so tight it almost seemed like he wanted to choke his boyfriend.

“I’m not having a laugh, though. That’s the funny thing. You’re wearing it whether you like it or not. I’m not being photographed next to someone who looks like they’re simultaneously hungover and wasted. Which is how you’d look if you didn’t wear this.” Oliver shrugged, pedantically dusting his hands over Marcus’ crisp white shirt.

“You say that as if you don’t find me mind-blowingly attractive looking a mess,” Marcus muttered, mainly to himself, as he turned to the mirror to examine himself. “I can’t do it, I’m sorry. I’m not wearing a tie.

Oliver groaned, hands slapping to his face and fingers dragging over his features in a style so overly dramatic that Marcus almost found it endearing. “Please, Marcus. I never ask you to do anything, just please do this for me. It’s a tie. It’s not shackles, it’s not a tattoo declaring ‘I love Harry Potter’ or anything like that. It’s a piece of material. Get over it, please.”

Marcus thought for a minute; he knew he looked quite nice all dolled up, as Oliver had eloquently put it earlier, black suit neatly tailored to accentuate his sportsman build. It was just the tie. He hated them, found them so constricting that all he could focus on was the tight feeling almost preventing him from breathing.

“Fine,” he finally sighed, twirling the tie around his fingers as he turned to look at a ridiculously content Oliver. “Only because you’re practically begging me.”

“I didn’t know yellow was Felicity’s favorite color.” John said with a slow smile as he looked around.

It wasn’t. Felicity didn’t have a favorite color, exactly. It varied with her mood, with what she wanted her mood to be, even. She thought looking happy could help you be happy, so she picked her happy shoes and started her day from there. Sometimes, she was even right.

She had guessed Oliver’s favorite color at first try though, as they sped down the highway, hills on one side and the gleaming ocean on the other.

But Oliver didn’t know how to explain any of that to John. How to tell him that in truth, Oliver hadn’t even had a favorite color, until she’d yelled out ‘yellow!’ and laughed, hair hair curling right around her head because of the salted water she’d spent the better part of the day swimming in. She’d been so excited, smiling so wide. John too knew that smile, the one that showed her dimples and scrunched her nose and her eyes, how it made her look as if she was smiling with her whole face.

So Oliver had told her she was right. And he had never seen yellow the same since, it’s in everything. He could probably live in it now.

No, the yellow was for him.

YES!!! So excited for the new fic!! I wanna know everything! How old are the kids? Names? Is it completely AU or based on canon events (Oliver on the island, Felicity doing her hacking thing in college, etc)? Can you tell me anything?? Pretty pleeeeeease :-)

eeeeeppp!! thank you so much!! okay so a lot of these questions will be answered in the first chapter but here’s a few things that I can share…

x Oliver’s son is canon William and he’s 10 at the beginning of the fic, Felicity’s daughter is Allison (Allie) and she’s obviously an original character. (also she’s 7 at the beginning of the fic) 

x there’s no island/arrow!oliver but the undertaking did happen as well as lots of other canon events so it’s kind of a blend of AU and canon (more details on all this in the first chapter)

x most of Felicity’s college backstory is the same but her getting pregnant does change a few details (again, lots more details in the first few chapters about this)

x there’s going to be a LOT of cute domestic fluff (but also some angst) in this fic so buckle up for all the feels ;)

thanks for asking!!

ask me questions about my new AU :D

I struggle with some poetry. But Mary Oliver’s poems tend to speak to me very directly. When we were out in the Canadian wilderness, my wife and I decided we had missed a chance by not bringing one of her books of poetry with us. We have a couple up at the cabin.

As we paddled, carried heavy packs, set up our tent, swam, and ate under the big sky we thought of one of her most famous lines: “What is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?”

Back home we read the whole poem. It really fit this thing we did. I keep harping on it. But wildness and preciousness are something we need. And I have to keep telling myself to make time to close the door on what has become normal and go to where it is wild. If only for a week or a few days or a few hours.

The Summer Day

Who made the world?
Who made the swan, and the black bear?
Who made the grasshopper?
This grasshopper, I mean-
the one who has flung herself out of the grass,
the one who is eating sugar out of my hand,
who is moving her jaws back and forth instead of up and down-
who is gazing around with her enormous and complicated eyes.
Now she lifts her pale forearms and thoroughly washes her face.
Now she snaps her wings open, and floats away.
I don’t know exactly what a prayer is.
I do know how to pay attention, how to fall down
into the grass, how to kneel down in the grass,
how to be idle and blessed, how to stroll through the fields,
which is what I have been doing all day.
Tell me, what else should I have done?
Doesn’t everything die at last, and too soon?
Tell me, what is it you plan to do
with your one wild and precious life?
—Mary Oliver


First trailer for Professor Marston & the Wonder Women (2017) dir. Angela Robinson.

Professor Marston details the life of Dr. William Moulton Marston, Harvard psychologist and inventor who created Wonder Woman in 1941; his wife, fellow psychologist and inventor Elizabeth; and their polyamorous relationship with Olive Byrne, a former student of Marston’s and an academic in her own right.

Their relationship proved enduring. Marston created DC’s iconic Amazonian princess with significant input from Elizabeth having been inspired to do so by Olive – Marston, like Wonder Woman, was profoundly influenced by the feminist ideals espoused by Elizabeth and Olive. After his death in 1947, Elizabeth and Olive raised their children by Marston together and remained a couple until Olive’s death in 1988. The film will explore how Marston dealt with the controversy surrounding his creation — which homophobic moral guardians charged would turn young girls into lesbians — while he and his partners navigated and concealed a romantic and family life that, if exposed, could have destroyed them all.
