Any Man of Mine (1/6)

Coming your way this week are six fluffy ficlets, all based off key lines in Shania Twain’s “Any Man of Mine”

Read here or on AO3

First up:

“Any man of mine better be proud of me. Even when I’m ugly he still better love me.”

She’d fought it off as long as she could, worked for two days on a desk covered in tissues, sniffling into the comms at night until Oliver finally just came back to take her home, whether she liked it or not. But around 3 am last night, after an uncomfortable nap on their bathroom floor, Felicity had finally admitted it: she was sick.

Guess what, guys…we got a pic. One pic and it’s more than enough. That means memes!! Tagging those I can remember off the top of my head (working, so on my phone again)

Yellow Lines

I don’t know what this is. Poetic. An extended metaphor. Based off of the live video from set Stephen posted last friday. 

He sits there, in the middle of the road, cross legged, just staring at the yellow lines. 

He doesn’t know where he is, somewhere between Home and Hell. It’s sometime before dawn. 

If Felicity were here she would scold him. He’s sitting out in the open, hood down, mask off, covered in emerald leather. His quiver sits on his back and his bow in his lap. 

Just staring at the yellow lines. 

Yellow like her hair.

Gold, like her ring.

Bright, like her smile.

He was the contrast, the pavement, the dark background enhancing her sunshine. Her opposite in every way. 

The lines were a division, between two different ways. Yellow lines in his life, the hero and the hunter, two alternative ways heading in two opposite directions.

Felicity kept him on the right side, the hero side. 

When he had first come back to Starling, death haunting his every footsteps, he had chosen the path of the hunter, the road leading to Hell. Every body dropped, every heart that stopped beating was another mile traversed, down the dark and solemn path. 

Then joy incarnate appeared and showed him the other path. She made him look, made him recognize the yellow lines, made him make a u-turn, crossing the dashed marks. 

She showed him Home. 

The other direction, the Hero way, was tough, an uphill climb. Every step he slid back but she was always ahead of him, coaching, encouraging. 

She became his Home. 

Soon, every unstable step became worth if, if it meant he was that much closer to her. Every breath, every heartarche, every obstacle was necessary, he deemed, because it meant he had her. 

Until the road ended. His Home was taken from him, violently, softly, unexpectedly. Two seconds ago she was there, holding his hand, telling him that she loved him. 

For two seconds. 

Then he watched as his Home burned. Revenge and Greed drove the man to take what the Hunter Oliver had been, had also taken. Happiness.

And so he sits, blood of thousands surrounding him of his rage. The Hero slipped, and with no Felicity to drive him onwards he fell. He crossed back over the passing lane, slipping easily into Hunter mode. They must pay for what they have done.

Now, three steps from Hell he pauses. Thinks. What would Felicity say if she were here? Would she judge him, turn her back? No. Her hands would caress his face and tell him, despite him failing, that he was a good man.

And so he sits. In between his destroyed Home and denied Hell, the man who had lost everything but gained so much,, stared at the crossing lines. 

Waiting for the Sun.

So all of you who I follow on Tumblr I most likely followed you because of your writing, because I figured if this person is crazy talented with their writing then their blog must be one to follow and boy was I right! Like, seriously, you guys are crazy talented. Your work is worth publishing and putting it in a book! You all should be arrested for putting my emotions through the wringer. For all of your work, I thank you. The Olicity fandom is lucky to have a group such as you!! It has been a privilege to read all your work, and just know I am a HUGE FAN. I’d probably be starstruck if I got to meet you! So sending you all my love and thanks!

Fanfic writer appreciation day!

Hello, lovelies! So, I wanted to get this post up way earlier, but it’s been a long, LOOOOOOONG day work-wise and then couple it with car trouble after a grocery store pit stop. Today has been trying to say the least, but I will not let it get me down! Now is the time to spread the love!!!

I cannot thank the Olicity fandom enough, especially all you fic writers, for inspiring me to pick up the pen (or grab the computer) again! It had been years since I wrote a fic, and finding others out there with such passion and amazing stories, I found my muse once more :-D. 

skcolicity - The first person on tumblr I worked up the courage to message, and who beta-ed my first ever Olicity fic - thank you! I always enjoy your stories :-).

hopedreamlovepray - HOPE! Lovely lady! It has been such a joy to get to know you and squee over all things Olicity (and Labyrinth ^_~). The stories you write are always so beautiful and paint amazing pictures in my mind. I get so excited when I see you’ve written a new fic. *HUGS!* dear friend!!

dettiot - Your stories are GORGEOUS, and always so well written. They have such depth and really bring out the character’s emotions. Your fics are such a joy to read. :-)

dust2dust34 - BRE!!! All hail the queen of smut! As I’ve said before, I envy your talent and bow down to your amazing stories. I LOVE them, and always prepare for the possible cold shower I may need afterwards ^_~. Thank you for the amazing fics, and the wonderful convos!

arrow-through-my-writers-block - SHELBY!! You know i love you, girl, and your AMAZING fics!! I can’t thank you enough for all the beta-ing you’ve done for me, and all of your encouragement. You’re a gem and I love chatting with you :-). *HUGS!*

supersillyanddorky06 - Girl, I will probably always flail and freak out about your stories, thank you for letting me flood your asks WITH ALL THE NECESSARY CAPS!! ^_~ Your fics are like books right off of the shelf and I can’t get enough! Your talent is amazing, and I can only hope to reach that level one day :-). And you’re super fun to chat with, feel free to bug me anytime! ^_^

diggo26 - How you can crank out so many quality prompted fics in such a short time amazes me! I wish I had the ability to do that! Thank you for all of your time and talent, they are always so fun to read! :-)

And to all of the other writers who I follow: jedichick04, callistawolf, anthfan, fanmommer, so-caffeinated, aubvi, sailorslayer3641, bytemegeekette, nikkibeckettcsm, arrows-and-fairytales, effie214, mogirl97, seetheskyaboveus, machawicket, befitandchase, jbuffyangel, geniewithwifi (and anyone else who I’ve forgotten!!!) I love reading all of your fics, and thank you from the bottom of my heart for sharing them with us. YOU ARE ALL AMAZING, WONDERFUL, BEAUTIFUL PEOPLE!!! 

Happy writing, everyone!

this is what happens when i don’t write for weeks and am a slut for angst. for bonus tears listen to the last time by taylor swift (where the title came from)

She’d known this was coming ever since they’d gotten the call to come home.

Before then, really. There’s always been a lingering thought in the back of her mind that this is just the calm before the storm. That this was just a happy dream and one day something was going to come and wake her up.

And, apparently that day is today.

Felicity’s trying not to be bitter, she really is. There were conditions to this, and she’d signed the contract without even thinking of the consequences. Like the damn Little Mermaid - the original one, not the Disney-fied version. Willing to give up an essential part of herself for a short time with him. Hoping that in the few ticks of a clock that she’d gotten she would be able to convince him to change the terms and conditions.

And he loves her, she knows that. And she loves him. But there are rules they’d made when they’d started this out, and she doesn’t think love is enough to break them.

Apparently it’s Fanfic Writers appreciation day! Who knew?! Not me for sure.

Honestly, I love Fanfic, probably more than published books. Because the amount of time and effort and stress and enotions it takes to produce one chapter, let alone 23+, is time out of the writers schedule, people with family and friends and jobs and lives, and the only compensation we get for our trials are love. So today’s kind of a really, really important day, because today’s all about loving the people behind the fics! I don’t talk a lot to other Fanfic writers. Normally I’m way too quite and invisible to be noticed when I make commets on work, compared to the love left huge blogs who are normally muturals with the writers. As a writer who will post a piece that took hours and maybe get two likes - please, show your appreciation to your favourite writers! It really is important to us! It also happens to normally the best way to keep them writing!

I sat down earlier to make this list of all my favourite authors (which will follow shortly) and my sister asked me what I was doing. I told her, and she asked me what order I’d put them in. Which threw me, because there is no order. Because can’t compare Fanfic to others, because they’re all too different, too amazing (this has lifted my spirits about my own writing too!) So, I need to thank all of you, for being the amazing people you are, and for blessing us enough with your work!

Previously mentioned list of favourite authors:

Much love to all



Oh I just found the whole sketch from the Marrakech Du Rire where Les Twins had the “battle” with Jamel Debbouze. Maybe it will help some people to understand what the hell was going on (even though it’s in French)

skcolicity asked:

Olicity: "How long have you had this problem?"

“How long have you had this problem?”

Felicity was proud of herself for getting the question out without dissolving into laughter. The rest of the team, in particular Thea, was not so successful in fighting their battle against the laughs, and the sound filled their new lair.

And didn’t help ease the grumpy expression of Felicity’s favorite vigilante hero.

“Oliver,” she prompted, taking a step closer to him. He grimaced and took a step away. Felicity fixed him with a look and saw the exact moment he gave into her.

“Just tonight,” he growled, his eyes shifting from dark glowering blue to his softer puppy dog expression. “I think I tweaked my arm last night when we–”

“Don’t finish that sentence!” Thea managed to gasp out between her giggles.

Oliver shot a glare at his sister, but didn’t finish the thought. Felicity felt her cheeks warm as she remembered exactly what he’d been talking about anyways. “Now will you help me?”

“Of course,” Felicity replied, the laughter still barely restrained as she stepped forward and started working on untangling Oliver from his new Green Arrow armor–because somehow, he’d gotten his new arm guards stuck half on and half off and no matter how he’d twisted trying to get them off, he’d just ended up looking ridiculous with his armor still half on. 

After she got it all sorted, she leaned up and murmured in his ear, “But it’s going to cost you tonight.”

The last traces of Oliver’s grumpy face finally vanished as he grinned at her like a beam of sunshine, and Felicity finally gave into her laughter. After a moment, even Oliver joined in.

Send me a line and I’ll write (at least) six more.

Fanfic writers

So I had this whole post I wrote out and it got deleted! I’m so mad. But I’m just gonna give a shout out to the amazing fic writers out there, especially the ones in the finchel and olicity fandom who changed my life. You have no idea how much I appreciate your hard work and time and dedication. It’s so tiring and takes time and work and it literally helps me so much. Until I discovered fanfic 5 years ago, I thought I was a freak in my obsessive thoughts over fictional couples. I thought I was alone but I know now I’m not. So here’s a shout out and appreciation post to some of my favorite writers. Thank you so much! You guys are so talented and I’m so overwhelmed by the amount of talent and high quality fics in the olicity fandom right now. I have so many I still want to read in my tag that I have saved to read because there are so many good ones to read.
