season 3 oliver was so sad and angsty

The people who hate Felicity for standing up to Oliver and speaking her mind (and call her a whiny bitch for doing so) are the same people who cheer other characters for doing the same exact goddamn thing….

The truth is, they hate her because she isn’t comic canon. Because she’s Jewish. Because she’s a woman speaking her mind and putting herself first. Because she’s smart. And they look for any reason to tear her down or compare her to other women.

But calling her a bitch for doing the same thing every single other character does (even when Felicity is always the person inspiring him while most of your faves just tear him down (2x23, 3x23, 4x01,4x20, 5x02, just to name a few)) is not only hypocritical, but it strengthens the belief that women who stand up for themselves or want more for themselves are “whiny” or a “bitch”.

Week 9 submission for the OHFAT hosted by @thebookjumper!

Read on AO3

Notes: A little thing before this chapter! Imagine everything as canon except Oliver was never mayor. It’s not massively important to the story but it’s just how I pictured this in my head.

I was going to go a completely different way with this but I went to Pride yesterday and I couldn’t NOT write this after that. And especially after all the homophobic comments from a particular cast over the weekend…

Please let me know what you think after you’re done! I hope you enjoy this! :)


“Come on, get up, we have to get ready!”

“Get ready for what? It’s Sunday. We always sleep in on Sundays. Come back to bed, please?”

“But Pride starts in 2 hours!”

“You were really serious about going to that?”

“Of course! We have gay and bisexual friends, Oliver. We’re going to support and celebrate them and everyone else in this city!”

“I know, and I get that but it’s so…”

“What?”

“Colourful.”

“It’s called being happy and excited and joyful. You should try it sometime.”

“I am happy and excited sometimes!”

“When?”

“When you ask me if I want to stay over?”

“We live together. That isn’t an excuse anymore. Oliver, what if your son grows up and realises he’s gay?”

“Then I’d love and support him. Obviously.”

“Exactly! So lets start now by attending the first Pride event this city has had. This is a huge thing for Star City!”

“You’re really passionate and excited about this, aren’t you?”

“Of course! This is an amazing event for an amazing cause! Plus, it will be fun! There’s live music and everything!”

“Okay, the fact that you’re so excited has persuaded me. And you’re right, it’s an amazing cause and we should support it. I just have one request, okay? No glitter.”

“Don’t make that face.”

“I’m not making a face! I’m just disappointed because I bought glitter makeup especially for this occasion and I was-

“Felicity, you know how I feel about glitter.”

“I don’t know how many times I have to apologise for the engagement invites. I know I should have warned you about them. If I’d known they were going to have this much of an impact and make you grumpy about anything that sparkles ever since, I would have thrown them in the trash.”

“Hey, I don’t hate everything that sparkles. I love that silver dress you wore for my birthday last year.”

“You liked that dress because it had a low neckline and was completely open at the back. And because you got to take me out of it when we got home. I’m not stupid.”

“I also appreciated you in the dress. You looked amazing.”

“And you will look amazing if you let me put glitter in your beard!”

“Glitter in my beard?”

“Yes!”

“Felicity, there is no way you are giving me a glittery beard.”

“But it will look so cute! What are you so afraid of?”

“Right now I’m afraid of you and your glittery ideas.”

“Okay, fine. No glitter beard. How about a temporary tattoo instead? Of the Pride flag. On your cheek or something.”

“Um…”

“Please, Oliver? I promise it will look so cute.”

“That’s what I’m worried about.”

“Don’t be so heterosexual about this! Just have some fun!”

(Later that night)

“You know, I’m glad I got the glitter beard in the end. It was worth it to see you get jealous when those guys came over and started flirting with me.”

“I was not jealous. Because they weren’t even flirting with you. They just complimented your beard, Oliver. It’s not like they slipped their numbers into your jeans pocket or anything.”

“Actually, one of them did give me his number. He said I had amazing eyes and that the glitter really brought out the blue in them.”

“Yeah, well he was right. And he was being nice. Doesn’t mean he was flirting with you.”

“I can’t believe you’re actually jealous.”

“I’m not jealous!”

“Felicity, you literally came over whilst he was talking to me and grabbed my hand in the most obvious way. And then put on your sweetest voice and called me “babe”. You never call me babe. Ever. You just wanted him to know we were together.”

“I want everyone to know we’re together! Because I love you and it makes me happy to tell people that you’re-”

“Nope. Don’t try to cute your way out of this. It isn’t going to work. You were jealous and you know it. Even Sara and Nyssa both asked me why you were so clingy and possessive all afternoon after that when you’d been perfectly happy dancing with them beforehand.”

“Okay, fine. Maybe I was a little jealous. But only because you just let him flirt with you!

“In my defence, I didn’t know he was flirting until he gave me his number.”

“Right. Sure.”

“What are you doing?”

“I’m getting ready for bed.”

“It’s 8pm. And we have to go down to the bunker soon anyway. You’re not getting ready for bed. You’re making a point.”

“Yes. And the point I’m making is that no matter what, I come home to you every night. So you don’t need to be jealous of anyone.”

“You didn’t need to get half naked in the living room to make that point. You could have just made it with words.”

“But isn’t this way more effective?”

“Mmmm, I guess. And I guess now that you’re half naked and still look ridiculously cute covered in glitter, it would be a shame if we didn’t head upstairs and take a shower, right? I mean, after all, you can hardly show up later tonight covered in glitter and colourful tattoos. The team would think you were insane. Or a slightly more cheerful impostor. Or both.”

“Exactly. But we’re not going upstairs until you promise me that you’re not upset.”

“I’m not upset.”

“Are you sure?”

“I’m sure. And I’m sorry if I acted weird this afternoon. I just- actually, never mind. Lets just go upstairs.”

“Wait, what were you going to say?”

“It doesn’t matter.”

“Yes it does. Talk to me.”

“Look, I was just going to say that I watched you with other people for a long time. For like 3 years. It sucked. And then I had you and then I didn’t and now I do again and I just… I trust you and I know you’d never leave me or hurt me or anything again, I just hate to think about you with anyone else. No matter who they are. And so sometimes that makes me act like a jerk. It always has and I’m only just becoming aware of it. So I just wanted to say that I’m sorry about that.”

“Felicity…”

“Don’t. You don’t have to say anything. I don’t want you to make excuses for me. Just say you accept my apology and lets go take a shower.”

“I love you, you know that?”

“I love you too.”

“We’re gonna talk about this later.”

“We don’t-”

“We do. But right now I just want to take you upstairs and prove to you over and over that you’re the only person I will ever want for the rest of my life.”

“That sounds like fun.”
