Everlasting Light

by: more0rLessJess

Summary: All Felicity Smoak wants is to make her own choices. All Lord Oliver Queen wants is to raise his son after spending nearly five years abroad to help restore his family reputation that he helped to destroy by having a child out of wedlock. When Felicity turns down a proposal from a titled Lord (since her family, while rich, isn’t titled) her father is livid. When Oliver shows no interest in marriage in order to have a legitimate heir, his father (The Duke of Starling) isn’t thrilled. Their solution? Marry their children to each other so each man can get what they want. Neither Felicity nor Oliver are happy about it in the slightest. But while it starts as something they’re forced into, it might just turn out to be the most freeing thing neither of them expected. Aka the historical arranged marriage Olicity AU.

we did not give up on love today

Pink Fluffy Unicorns

by: griever11

Like Real People Do

by: more0rLessJess

Summary: Felicity Smoak has had a rough couple of years and all she wants to do is move on with her life and start her own tech company. After an incident at Queen Consolidated, she quit and accepted a job working as a technical analyst and computer expert at the Starling City Police Department, where she’s stuck for at least another year thanks to the non-compete clause she signed in her Queen Consolidated contract.

key lime pie

by: imfallingforyoureyes102

Summary: The Queen Matriarch watches as Oliver’s gaze subconsciously tracks the whipped cream on Felicity’s lips, and then he’s moving, casually reaching over and swiping the rest of the dessert from her mouth before bringing his thumb up to his own lips. He licks the sugar off of his finger, not faltering in the slightest as he nods along to whatever Mr. Jameson is saying. (Or, at a charity gala meant to be gathering donations to help fund a Youth Clinic in the Glades, Moira, Diggle, and a few cheery businessmen get to witness the sheer lack of awareness Oliver Queen and Felicity Smoak have when it comes to understanding just who they are to each other. As Diggle puts it, it’s infuriating, really).

No Grave Can Hold My Body Down (i’ll crawl home to her)

by: more0rLessJess

Summary: Felicity doesn’t understand why everyone’s so willing to accept Oliver’s gone. There was no body, and in their world that meant there was hope.

For her family. Aka the post series finale fix it that I rage wrote right after watching 8×10. Also I might’ve taken the Dark Knight ending. I’m sorry (not really).
