The Bratva AU I’m not writing

So I was talking in Google chat with storiesbyladychi​ and andyouweremine​ about the trend of Bratva fics in Arrow fandom and how a lot of them have some very similar things.

(Which is not, by the way, a necessarily bad thing. I’m not downing on anybody’s else’s fics. We were just wanting there to be some… variety in themes and tropes.)

And I had an idea. And god damn it, I’m not going to write it. I’m not. And I wasn’t gonna metafic it either. But I couldn’t keep sitting on my hands. So I told the story in chat to those lovely ladies, and I’m going to dump the transcript here.
