During one particular mission that
involved all four teams, everyone was aboard the Waverider. While Sara and Ollie were screaming and
arguing in the fabrication room about the mission plans, the others were in the
galley watching J’onn and M’gann impersonate Sara and Ollie and fake argue
about something ridiculous. Everyone was dying laughing until the real pair
walked into the room behind the Martians. To this day no one has ever seen such
a look of fear in J’onn’s eyes than when the real Sara starting slow clapping
Finally saw the season finale of Supergirl and it was everything I wanted it to be! Epic fights, Superman, General Zod (without actually being Zod so it didn’t take away from Rhea), Rhea vs Kara, Kara vs Kal-El, Cat Grant being a badass boss at CatCo and inspirational to Kara, the return of M'Gann, White Martians (!), Martian Manhunter fighting, Winn fanboying over Superman, Mon-El doing the right thing and showing his character arc for the season, Kara making the tough choice for the good of the world, Phantom Zone (!), Sanvers cuties, Danvers Sisters talk, Clark/Kara talk, awesome special effects… so much packed into one ep.
Can’t wait for season 3! Well-done, writers and actors. (Oh and the fun Lynda Carter/Melissa commercial for the new Wonder Woman movie was perfect!). Love love love.
THE NEXT CROSSOVER SHOULD BE THE WESTALLEN WEDDING!!!
So Barry and Iris have done every trope at least twice (confessions of love, first kisses, proposals), let’s keep that up with their wedding.
I want the Legends, Team Arrow, and Team Supergirl to come to CC for the wedding. I want all the females being Iris’s bridesmaids. I wanted freaking Linda to be the maid of honor. I want Oliver talking to Barry about how he was wrong saying guys like them don’t get the girl. I want some end of the world thing to happen as Iris is walking down the aisle and they all run outside to see what it is. I want Barry to pull Iris close because god fucking damn it he can and will protect her. I want the villians to be fucking good and I want there to a shit ton of fighting. I want Barry to almost die and Iris go off on someone (preferably Oliver because why the fuck not) about how he is the love of her life, she almost died with Savitar, but she would not lose him on their wedding day.
I want everyone fighting tooth and nail. I want them to save the day. Then I want there to be a scene where Barry and Iris are holding hands, exchanging vows, (mostly coming from Iris because Barry tells her his every other episode at this point). I want there to be an after party scene where Cisco makes a speech about Barry being a stubborn ass and Iris not being much better, and god help all of them should they ever have kids.
Then I want it to end with Barry and Iris waving people goodbye. She looks at him with the biggest grin and says,” So what happens now, Flash?”
And he says,” Whatever comes next, Mrs. West-Allen.”

I just can’t seem to
break away from this damn show. It is a five+ year investment. It has gotten
under my skin. It is in my blood. Maybe I shouldn’t even try anymore. Writing
Arrow/Olicity fiction brings me small comforts in uncomfortable times. So be
I wrote this story in
flight from Alaska down to San Diego. I was looking for something to do to pass
the time. Reading wasn’t working. Playing games wasn’t either. Instead, I came
up with the following story.
I need to stop.”
stopped and turned back to look at Felicity. They had been running in the
tunnels beneath Star City for over an hour, managing to stay ahead of the
ACU—just barely. Oliver could their boots stomping behind him, echoing off
the tunnel walls like ghosts. They were no more than 15 minutes behind Oliver
and Felicity, and they could smell blood.
morning, Susan had gone on air and reported to the world Oliver’s connection to
the Bravta, and then she dropped the real bombshell and ousted Oliver as the Green
Arrow. She had detailed information on him, (mostly provided to her by Prometheus)
leaving no doubt as to the authenticity of her claim. The woman was in a fever
pitch as she made her report, and as Oliver and Felicity watched the newscast
from the Bunker, they both could see and hear anger in Susan’s voice.
after Susan finished her reveal, and before the cameras turned off, a sniper’s
bullet hit her between the eyes. Blood and bone fragments splattered the podium
she stood at and sent shock waves throughout the city. Everybody immediately assumed
that Oliver was the shooter, given the information Susan had just related. The SCPD
and ACU were dispatched to seek out and apprehend the now defrocked Mayor
Oliver Queen. Oliver suspected that with
the ongoing manhunt for Green Arrow over Detective Malone’s murder, that this
public execution of Susan Williams would motivate the police to ignore the apprehend
directive and put Oliver in their cross hairs. Oliver and Felicity were shocked
at this turn of events and Oliver felt a certainty come over him that
Prometheus would further add to all this by revealing the location of the
Bunker, probably through an anonymous tip.
right in his instinct and he told Felicity that the Bunker was now compromised.
They needed to get out of there.
looked at Felicity as they stopped the mad pace he had set for them. She was
bent over, panting and teetering from exhaustion. His heart broke as he watched
her struggle to catch her breath. When they left the Bunker on the Ducati,
Felicity’s arms tightly clutching around Oliver’s waist, his plan was to try
and make it to the chamber he had found 2 years earlier, an off-shoot of the
old subway system that used to run beneath the city. It was a small compartment
furnished by the builders, a place they used for breaks and rest during the
grueling work. It was not on any map or city plans and Oliver knew that if he
could make it there ahead of the ACU’S pursuit, he and Felicity would have a
temporary safe haven.
continued to look at Felicity and he fought against the urge to go to her, to
enfold her in his embrace. But now was not
the time for tenderness and intimacy. It was time for survival.
he spoke to her. “We can’t stop yet. They are right behind us and catching up. We
have to keep going. The chamber is only 10 minutes away. We will be safe there
until I can figure out what we’re going to do.”
up and looked back at Oliver. There was dirt and grime streaked on her face and
clothes. Her ponytail had come undone and her blond hair lay limp and plastered
to the sides of her face, dampened by the condensation in the tunnels. Oliver
also saw fear and defeat filling her eyes.
Felicity started to say, and then she collapsed down to the rough stone floor
of the tunnel.
went to her, lifting her into his arms. Felicity’s breathing was shallow and
Oliver softly brushed her damp hair away from her face. He secured his hold on
her, then turned back around and started running again, hoping he would reach
the secret chamber before the ACU caught up and open fired.
Felicity made it to the chamber 12 minutes later. Oliver found the marker he
placed there last year, an arrowhead he wedged into the wall just below the
entrance. Unless the ACU stopped for a closer look, the chamber was well
camouflaged and not easily found. About 3 feet above the marker was a small
crawl way. Oliver was able to hoist the sleeping body of Felicity into the
space then squeeze in next to her.
Once inside the chamber,
Oliver gently laid Felicity onto a small cot and covered her with some blankets
he stored there. There was also some supplies, food and water, enough to last
them for at least a week. Felicity instinctively curled into a fetus position
and fell into a deeper sleep. Oliver was relieved that her breathing had evened
out as he began to feel his own exhaustion move through his body. He might be a
superhero, but he was still mortal. He pulled up a small camping chair and sat
down next to Felicity. He felt a familiar comfort being next to her. He was now
in complete protective mode.
10 minutes, Oliver surrendered to his mortality and fell asleep.
came awake, and as she opened her eyes, she saw Oliver sleeping in a chair next
to her. She had never felt as tired as she did now. It settled into her bones
like lead bars. This whole day was so surreal. In the Bunker, before Susan
changed everything for them, Oliver and Felicity had been finally reaching out to
one another. A few days ago, Felicity felt a shift in how she was handling
everything that came between them. After the debacle that was Helix and the
danger they represented, Felicity reminded herself that the only time in the
past 5 years she felt truly safe was with Oliver and the crusade she joined him
in. After John told Oliver about her participation in Helix, Oliver was able to
track her down. Felicity had lost count over the years of how many times Oliver had
come to her rescue, whether she wanted him to or not. In the case of Helix, she
had lost control of the situation and Oliver was a welcome sight when he burst
into their lair.
memories took hold of her, Oliver woke and sat up, reaching his hand out to
her. “Hey, “ he asked her. “Are you okay?”
back at him. “Yeah,” she replied. “I think so. Thanks to you, Oliver. I would
have been caught without you.”

me that you fell in love with me because I always found a way. I fell in love
with you for the same reason.”
smile lifted the corners of her mouth. “Actually, I said you finding a way was
one of the reasons I fell in love with you.”
sighed and sat back in his chair. “Does that mean that…uh…that you still…”
Felicity responded. “Well, I guess that was what we were going to discuss
before we started running.”

abandoned chamber under the city, not in a hundred years.”
seems that we are stuck here with a lot of time.” Felicity felt a surge of
apprehension course through her tired body. “Oliver, things really got out of
control between us over the past year.”
nodded at her. “Yeah, and I’m sorry I ruined everything.”
We both made mistakes. Yeah, you really screwed up keeping William from me, but I did
too by slamming the door in your face and not at least giving you a chance…uh, I
mean another chance to explain it all to me.” Felicity paused and felt the
anger she carried with her over all this. But now that they were finally
bringing it all out in the open, she released it. “Oliver,” she went on. “I’m
sorry too. Do you remember what we confirmed to each other after we saved Ray? We
said that neither one of us ever had a normal, healthy relationship.”

were going to be fine. “

unwavering and sure. “I felt, and I still do, the best part of me is you. When
we broke up, that part of me felt empty and without direction. Felicity,
without you next to me, in my life, I am lost. Yes, I continue to fight for
and protect the city, but there is no redemption unless you are with me,
fighting and protecting…and loving.”
reached her hand out and Oliver put his into it. “Oliver, I’m sorry I pushed
you away. But in the spirit of that, I think it was what both of us needed. I think
we’re both better and stronger for it.”
squeezed her hand and smiled for her. “Felicity…I love you for a thousand
reasons, and for only just one. I’m done running.”
“Me too. So,
said to her. “I can think of two things. First, do you think there is enough
room on that cot for both of us?”
smile filled her heart. “Well, if not, there’s always the floor. What’s the

glad you asked me that. I wanted to get your input on a plan.”
The DCU has a healthy fanfiction community based around its many superheroes. And they know about it. After learning about it, Diana couldn’t look at Bruce and Clark together for three days without chuckling, J'onn’s remark of “I do not believe that is anatomically possible” caused Ollie to snort coffee out his nose, and Jason Todd tried to get the ones he didn’t like taken down, with predictably disastrous results.
If there is a movie focused on any member of the Batfam, I want it to come out after all the other heroes have a chance. Jason Todd does not deserve a full length movie before Billy Batson, Oliver Queen (a faithful one hopefully), Martian Manhunter, Black Canary, ect.
