At least that’s the story Oliver and Felicity are told when a supposed time-traveler (and their supposed friend who is a supposed superhero supposedly named The Flash) pops up in the lair with a toddler in tow… who calls them momma and daddy. The Flash can’t quite control when he’s going at this point and there’s a big bad chasing him through the years. The future isn’t safe for little Elizabeth Queen at the moment (even if The Flash could get her there), but her once and future parents haven’t got a clue what to do with her.

That night Oliver is offered a chance to join the ranks of the Bratva, but Felicity and John grab him to go undercover for him.

Your Love Is A Waiting Game

by: sara2117

Summary: Oliver returns to Starling City after The Undertaking and it was back to business as usual for Felicity until a drunken night of passion led to a missed period and a positive pregnancy test. Think that’s the worst part? Nope, it gets way worse. It wasn’t some random guy she met at a bar she woke up next too, oh if only she had been that lucky.

As Long as You Follow

by: Nerdofmytalents

The Beast Within

by: felicityollies

Summary: When Oliver’s boat went down in the North China Sea, he had no idea how much his life was going to change. He never had a choice in anything that happened to him. Never had a choice in what he became; a monster with blood soaked teeth. When a woman crosses his path by chance, he can’t help but find her completely intoxicating. There’s just something about her, but it’s a fleeting moment and he knows he must let go. He’ll never see her again, anyway. There’s no chance for someone like him to even consider letting something so beautiful enter his life. But Oliver is going to learn that sometimes fate can be a fickle bitch.

Will Fate Allow?

by: mindramblings

Summary: Seeing her parents marriage dissolve at a young age made Felicity yearn for a healthy marriage of her own. She thought she’d finally found what she was looking for when Billy Malone showed up offering her what her heart desired. She thought she was happy and had everything she could want, but things began to unravel. Slowly she turned to someone who had become a unparalled constant in her life…Oliver Queen.

Oliver and Felicity are the definition of polar opposites. He is the mob boss that strikes fear in the hearts of many, while she is seen as the sweet girl next door, but there is more to both of them underneath the surface. Along the way, they become connected to one another leading to their lives being intertwined forever.

Defend Not The Man, But The Mind

by: AlexiaBlackbriar13

Summary: In a world where scientists attempted to genetically engineer the perfect super soldier by experimenting with combining different DNA, but their experiments went wrong and the subjects escaped, Oliver Queen returns to Starling City no longer human, and with no memory of his past life.

Conservationists are desperate to investigate, categorise and preserve the new, critically endangered species of homo bellator custos, but Oliver’s not exactly on board with cooperating, not when he’s got a duty to fulfil and a city to protect and save.

But then things start getting more complicated when he starts to remember; he begins finding allies in humans he thinks he knew in his past, and a certain blonde IT girl gets pulled into the mix.
