ranked second in the national informative technology competition at age 19. graduated mit with a masters degree in cyber security and computer sciences - i know who you are. i keep an eye out for promising talent…and i foresaw great things from you.
I know how leaving you here is going to destroy me. I don’t regret a single moment, and you shouldn’t either. You have done so much, you have saved so many people’s lives. And you have changed so many for the better, including mine. Knowing you has changed my life. You’ve opened up my heart in a way that I didn’t even know was possible. I love you.
You told me once that life is precious, and that you wanted more from it than I could offer you. Don’t give up on that. The only way that I’m gonna survive this is if I know that you’re out there living your life - happy.
In honor of my three years on tumblr, I wanted to make this list of my top favorite olicity fanfics i’ve read since i joined the arrow fandom. Honestly this list could have been so much longer but alas i’ll make myself make a part 2 sometime in the future. I hope you find new fics you haven’t seen before or that you choose to reread an old favorite. Thanks for being so amazing darlings, your talent and creativity has made my experience with the olicity fandom one of the highlights of this past year.
Also a special shoutout to an amazing blog that i ALWAYS go to when i need to find new fics to read. theolicitylibrary check out this blog, follow it or bookmark it and enjoy all the amazing fics this fandom has to offer <3
Enough chit chat, happy reading everybody!
Must Reads -These are the fics that I literally read over and over again without ever getting tired of them. And if you were to ask me which fics you should read first, these are it. Start with these ones.
Pink Drinks and Pick-Up Lines -Frea_O, complete, rated t, strangers au, blind date au, there is just something about this fic that makes me laugh and smile and squee every time i read it. I think its the fic i’ve reread the most i practically have it memorized by heart.
what does home look like? - sarcastic_fina, wip, rated t, series- 2works, i am SO obsessed with this fic, i just want to know what happens next and gah lovesick oliver always just makes me emotional. no island au, high school au, family feels , Lance is Felicity’s stepdad, Sara and Laurel her stepsisters kind of au. there is also a oneshot from Oliver’s pov that i practically know by heart i’ve read it so many times.
The Victory- December_Daughter , not rated, complete, fluffy chance meetings au, this fic makes me smile and my heart melt i love it
Convergence - Nightkeepyr, complete, explicit, porn, straight up porn without a plot, strangers au, sooo fucking hot
Bratva!Olicity/Mob Fics- The title speaks for itself. I adore these fics, there is just something about them that has me hooked. also this genre could be an extension of my must reads, i reread these fics all the time too.
Lengths - rosietwiggs , wip, explicit, bdsm (but focuses more on emotional aspect and not just the sexual, its so beyond incredible)
Be Still - sarcastic_fina , complete, rated t, ANGST, SO MUCH ANGST, IT HURTS, IT REALLY HURTS YOUR HEART AND SOUL AND IF YOU DO NOT CRY FROM THIS HOW ARE YOU A HUMAN BEING????
Little Talks - december_daughter, complete, rated t, friends to lovers au,
Filled with Gold - december_daughter, complete , explicit, sequel to Little Talks
Drabble Collections- So many writers in this fandom do these, they are wonderful and encompass everything from tropes and au’s to episode fixers and requests. I love reading them and they are quick reads too.
At First Sight - thatmasquedgirl, complete, rated t, all KINDS of au’s that lead to different series, all amazing. also these are more oneshots than drabbles, some of them are pretty long actually and so fucking amazing. i can not say that enough.
Domestic Olicity/Family Fics -basically these are the fics where Oliver and Felicity are married or parents, fics where there is team arrow family fluff, and even fics where Oliver and Felicity aren’t together (yet) but everyone still considers them a couple/family figures.
You can tell - mariss95, wip, rated t, everyone can see it au
Olicity + Others -Not gonna lie, sometimes I indulge myself and read some smoaking canarrow or better yet some smoaking billionaires (i mostly just read tommy felicity oliver but if you have recs for smoaking canarrow let me know, i’m not opposed). Threesomes can be so much fun.
