Not necessarily a baby shower, but baby shower-ish? There are gifts involved, so it counts in my book. And yes, it is inspired by the “Like a hero” scene in 2x09. Enjoy!
Being pregnant was exhausting. Now almost at seven months, Felicity was anxious to get the small human inside her delivered. She wanted to be able to pace in the foundry without her feet killing her after only a handful of minutes. With a grumble, she walked back towards her computers–Oliver and Digg still sparring on the mats. Approaching her desk, she saw a long rectangular box sitting on her chair wrapped in a familiar paper.
“Barry stopped by?” She asked, as she sat down with the box in her lap.
The sparring stopped and Felicity heard Oliver approach, “Yeah. But just delivering.”
Opening the box she couldn’t help but laugh at the stack of onesies inside–each with a different phrase and image.
The first one, of course, was bright scarlet and displayed proudly that my uncle’s a superhero, underneath which was a small yellow lightning bolt.
Oliver chuckled, “Barry’s not really subtle.”
Felicity grinned and set it aside. The others were similar, declaring the respective talents of the baby’s superhero godfather, superhero aunt, and superhero mother. But the one at the bottom of the pile was by far Felicity’s favorite and earned a groan from Oliver.
For sketched into the soft cotton onesie was the suit of the Arrow, complete with hood and a small quiver drawn onto the back. There was a small note pinned onto the front,
Cisco couldn’t help himself. I tried. Love, Caitlin.
As the onesie was shown to the rest of the team, much to Oliver’s chagrin, there was one thing that gift from S.T.A.R. Labs team made abundantly clear.
This child came from a family of heroes.
He or she would be protected. Very protected, indeed.
