Friday Fics Fix - I Need Oliver Queen

'"...John, Curtis, Dinah, and Rene. All of them. They have issues and they blame it on you. Maybe because it's easy to."

Oliver looked up at her quickly, "Why is it easy?"

"Probably because you already blame yourself for everything," Felicity said, smiling sadly.'

I'm in an Oliver Queen kind of a mood! 💘

The new series trailer (which I featured in yesterday's comics wrap-up,) has got me in the mood for some Arrow!

Plus, my life is stressful right now, so I need Oliver Queen.

For those of you who don't know - Oliver Queen is one of the random assorted things that have saved my life over the years.

I mean that literally.

...And more than once.

One of these days I'll get around to explaining exactly what Oliver Queen means to me, but the last time I tried to do that, the file was lost when my laptop died 👍 

(No. I hadn't backed it up. Because I hadn't gotten around to it, ok? Argh! Lol.)

Not like I was pouring my heart out in that file or anything... - Umm... Hey! Look! A distraction!!!!! *runs*

'"Hey, this isn't your fault," he whispered softly, trying to get her to meet his gaze, "Don't blame yourself."

Felicity gave a watery laugh, wiping tears from her eyes, "It seems our roles have been reversed."'

So, this fic is preeeeetty much generic Arrow-y goodness - melodrama, team members awkwardly making up, and Oliver being randomly drugged by some bad guys.

There are some SPOILERS for various features of the series but... to be honest, like I said, it's generic Arrow-y goodness, so it's probably not that easy to tell which details have been switched by the fic author and which haven't.

Generally, this is pure superhero-ness, but there are a few things that I need to give Warnings for.

Warnings, then, for the following: suicidal thoughts, attempted suicide, self-hatred, being drugged, extreme pain (described as torture,) and general violence.

Over all, though?

This is one where you can just enjoy the Arrow-ness of everything.

Which, if you can't wait for the next series... 😉

  1. There is nothing better than a tv series that just makes you feel safe. I have a lot that have special places in my heart, mostly Gilmore Girls and Buffy the Vampire Slayer. I’m glad you love this show!

    1. I metaphorically lean on Oliver Queen a lot! I wouldn't say Arrow makes me feel safe, so much as... strong. Which is pretty good too ;)

      Awesome - I'm glad you have shows like that! <3
