anonymous asked:

I can't believe no one has asked Olicity yet, they're your sidebar

I love you, anon! Yeah my sidebar is Olicity, Souter, Bellarke, and Westallen (with a Pride and Prejudice quote on top) and only Bellarke has been asked haha

please send me ships, this is a good writing exercise for me

  • immediately begins to shimmy when maroon 5 comes on: Oliver, he’s a huge dork who can’t resist shimmying his hips to make Felicity laugh
  • wakes the other up at 3am demanding pancakes: Honestly, neither of them wake up in the middle of the night for anything except danger, lets be real. Sleep is rare and they need it
  • sends the other unsolicited nudes: Felicity, she’s literally watched him almost fall out of his seat at a business meeting and she loves it
  • brags about knowing karate even though they never made it past yellow belt: Felicity, she claims Sara taught her “full on assassin karate” and Oliver tells her he’s pretty sure there’s no such thing
  • comes to a complete halt outside bakeries/candy shops: Oliver, it’s his little weakness
  • blows sarcastic kisses after doing ridiculous shit: Felicity, for sure
  • killed the guy (also, which hid the body): Why is ½ of my OTP always made out of someone who has historically killed? If this is an AU, than Oliver would be hiding a body for Olicity after she fights some mugger or something?
  • wears the least clothing around the house: It’s pretty equal. Their friends have a habit of texting “are either of you dressed??” before coming over
  • has icky sentimental moments for no apparent reason: OLIVER OMG 100% CAN’T YOU IMAGINE THAT GIANT FREAKING NERD???
There are few people whom I really love, and still fewer of whom I think well. The more I see of the world, the more am I dissatisfied with it; and every day confirms my belief of the inconsistency of all human characters, and of the little dependence that can be placed on the appearance of merit or sense.
—  Jane Austen, Pride and Prejudice

Day 7, the final literary heroine portrait! This is Elizabeth Bennet (based on Kiera Knightley’s portrayal of her in the 2005 film) from Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen.
The quote reads ‘My courage always rises at every attempt to intimidate me.“

I don’t think I’ve ever seen a place so happily situated.

Elizabeth Bennet, Price and Prejudice 1995

They gradually ascended for half-a-mile, and then found themselves at the top of a considerable eminence, where the wood ceased, and the eye was instantly caught by Pemberley House, situated on the opposite side of a valley, into which the road with some abruptness wound. It was a large, handsome stone building, standing well on rising ground, and backed by a ridge of high woody hills; and in front, a stream of some natural importance was swelled into greater, but without any artificial appearance. Its banks were neither formal nor falsely adorned. Elizabeth was delighted. She had never seen a place for which nature had done more, or where natural beauty had been so little counteracted by an awkward taste. They were all of them warm in their admiration; and at that moment she felt that to be mistress of Pemberley might be something!
