  • Qrow: (Slightly drunk) But seriously, the craziest gunfight I've ever seen actually happened in Mistral, in a little bar a few streets away actually
  • Ruby: Really, what happened?
  • Qrow: Team YLLW and Team YELO met for the first time, it got tense then it got ugly
  • Jaune: Wait that happens? teams with names that are basically the same
  • Qrow: Oh yeah, there's actually a Team RUBI out there. I've met 'em, they're pretty cool

I couldn’t not write this. So in tonight’s ep, 4x06, we saw Oliver writing in a notebook, and I’m basically taking this as canon confirmation that Oliver keeps a diary. This is a summer hiatus fic about how that got started.

Ties in with this [x] –  a sequel of sorts – but the first really doesn’t have to be read to understand this one.

Olicity, Oliver-centric

It starts in July.

July 6th, to be exact. Oliver knows this because it’s two days after the gorgeous fireworks display they witness in Gotham. It’s about a week after he and Felicity talk, openly and honestly, about Oliver’s issues.

They still come up, every now and again, and while Felicity is always quick to ensure him that it’s normal, it doesn’t feel normal. He doesn’t feel normal. There are still nights he jerks awake from nightmares in violent episodes that he has trouble pulling himself out of. Sometimes these episodes last into the next day. Other times he doesn’t know if it’s day; all he can see are the League chambers and hear Ra’s’ voice in his ear.

(Right after the fireworks, he stays up all night because all he can hear are shots being fired at the Arrow, and the resulting adrenaline is useless when there are no bad guys to punch.)

He’s promised Felicity he’ll get help–professional help–if it’s too hard to manage. But he’s not willing to cut their trip short just yet. He can still rally.

That’s when she gives him the notebook.

I don’t know what to write.

Felicity tells me this is normal. She thinks writing it down will help me. Why am I even doing this?

She asked me to teach her how to defend herself. From me is what she meant since she doesn’t need it for the team anymore.

I hate that she had to ask.

They move from Gotham to New York City and talk about hopping on a cruise. Oliver shoots the idea down quickly because even now the thought of getting on a boat fills him with an inexplicable dread. He tells her it’s because he hates swimming.

They book a plane out of the country instead.

He is forgotten.

I got on a boat yesterday. Felicity missed it. Not sure what she was doing. Checking in with the Palmer Tech board, I think.

I’d say it was just as bad as I expected, but I’m not shipwrecked on a cursed prison island, so there’s that.

Called Thea today. She said the new team’s doing fine. I’m happy for them. I’m glad they don’t need me.

Sometime in mid-August, Oliver realizes he’s filled half the notebook. He tells Felicity this, and she only smiles and kisses him, soft and slow. It’s the kind of kiss he’s learned means both comfort and support, and it still blows him away because it’s brand new.

She doesn’t ask to see the notebook. He’s really grateful for that, but he also thinks maybe he would have shown her.

Back in the States. Before we came back, I asked if we could go to Lian Yu. I think Felicity thought I was crazy. I kind of think I’m crazy. Is it bad I want to go back? There’s a strong part of me that still feels like it’s home. More than the Queen Mansion ever did. As much as the Arrow Cave Foundry ever did.

I want to go home.

But not to Starling City.

Thea tells me they’re changing the name because Palmer died. Felicity cried when she heard. I thought about Tommy a lot today, and I wondered why no one wanted to change the name after so many people died in the Undertaking.

Can’t sleep again. It’s 3 am. Just moved into the new house. I like it. It’s got a good kitchen. All that room service crap we kept eating was making me sick. Not sure if Felicity cooking is better, though. She tried earlier.

The smoke detectors in the new house work great.

There’s an organic restaurant nearby that does take-out. I think it was the best meal I’ve eaten in three months. I should probably learn how to cook.

Talked to Thea today. She gave me her blessing – said it’s her right as my last living family member. Weird to hear but true.

She’s sending me the ring tomorrow.
