Story Summary: Oliver and Felicity actually have some time off from Team Arrow business. It’s everything Oliver has ever wanted from quiet date nights to trips back home and more. The Queens, their friends, and family have a fantastic summer vacation after escaping Lian Yu.

A/N: Hey, ladies and gents, I took a little break last week because I was on vacation visiting my grandparents and I had a major case of writer’s block. But hope you all enjoy this one. Also, thanks, @sophie1973, Your “love is indestructible” comment inspired this chapter, so I had to include it of course. Oh and sunbutter is a spread made out of sunflower seeds since Felicity is allergic to nuts. The way she eats it is how I sometimes snack on pure peanut butter.

Prompt 9: Pride for @olicityhiatusficathon

Chapter 9 “United”


A blissful slumber is short-lived when Oliver’s phone beeps. Felicity greets her husband with fiery azure and angry face — a glare that can kill. Technically in Oliver’s case, it means no spooning, a cold shoulder, and a view of his wife’s backside. And he certainly isn’t allowed to touch.

“Sorry, sorry.” Oliver says, picking up his phone, “I thought I turned it off.”

Felicity growls, “You woke the baby.”

Her anger simmers when she loves sensing those tiny flutters in her tummy. She can’t wait to feel an actual kick soon. Oliver wishes he can feel what his wife does right now, but Baby Queen is growing strong. Dimples pool in her cheeks when she guides Oliver’s hand to her belly.

“Nothing yet.” Her husband acknowledges glumly, adopting a cute voice. “You be good for mama, Sweetie.”

“Who texted you at this insane hour?”

He checks, a bright screen shining against his face, “Mackenzie, Thea has the stomach flu and wants to know Raisa’s homemade cracker recipe.”

“Well, at least one of them is speaking to you.” The brunette hacker figures, squeezing his shoulder.

His gaze flits over to his wife.

“What? It’s better than both of them ghosting you — not me.”

“Yeah.” Oliver cringes, palms blanketing his face, “After the incident at Star City’s Pride Parade, I’m not winning any Big Brother of the Year awards.”

Two years after their failed attempt to bring Oliver home, Tommy and Felicity have settled back into their normal lives.  Or at least, as normal as they can be with Tommy working for ARGUS and Felicity working on a highly secretive project with Dr. Brion Markov.  Settled, at least, until they hear the startling news:  Oliver Queen is alive… and returning to Starling City. Feelings resurface, tensions run high, and everything is different… in the wake of yesterday.

For the first time ever, here to accompany the 2016 AO3 Ship Stats list, this list shows the 100 most popular pairing tags on Archive Of Our Own since this time last year.

This list was created by comparison of current number of fics with data gathered for the 2015 AO3 Ship Stats. Values are only approximate, but this list gives some idea of the most popular pairings in the last 13 months (from July 2015 to August 2016).

There are 63 M/M pairings on the list, 19 F/M, 7 F/F, 5 Gen and 6 Other. (Please note that on AO3, ‘Name & Name’ indicates platonic relationships (Gen), while ‘Name/Name’ is used for romantic pairings.) Of the 200 names on the list, 34 are women and 7 are characters of ambiguous gender. 49 are POC, and 15 are racially ambiguous.

For more information about the AO3 Ship Stats project, please check out this year’s post, and the accompanying FAQs. A text-only version of this data is beneath the cut.

ETA: Fixed Loki/Reader type.
