LET’S DO THIS THING.
Oliver went to grab something from the top the bookshelf and he while he grabbed the object of his affection, a box of pictures fell down. He went to pick it up and he saw a picture he hadn’t seen in ages. It was before the island. It was just him and Laurel and they were whispering at each other.
He remembered what was happening. They were thinking about leaving Starling, to see the world. They wanted to break away from all the expectations of their very confined world and see the world together. It was a beautiful thought, if only a little bit naive.
"We could do it, right? Just you and me? No one else. We could be us on our times, that would be great. We could go to New York. We could be free." Past Laurel said with a hopeful smile on her face. And Past Oliver nodded.
He never thought he would leave her alone like he did. He thought they were going to New York. At least for a little while to just be themselves. “If you want to go, I think after my boat trip, we’ll do it, okay?” He asked as he kissed her.
She gave him this happy smile and he knew that he made the right decision even if it unsettle him. Laurel was the right girl. Laurel was the girl he should marry. She was beautiful and smart and sexy and getting out of his own head for a few weeks would be the best for both of them. And then they could be the two of them.
Tommy snapped the picture of them and present Oliver shook his head. Those had been simpler times to all of them. Laurel came in the room and looked at him. “What’s going on here?” She asked him as she pointed to the toppled box and looked at the picture in his hand.
He patted the ground beside him and smiled at her. “Remember this?” He asked her as he gave her the picture for a closer look. It’d been awhile since either of them had seen it he thought.
"We were so young and full of ideas," She chuckled as she looked at it and gave it back to him. "We should really scan these guys into the computer." She told him as she looked through the box. It was all old pre island pictures.
He nodded. “We were positively in love back then, I mean look at me, I’m practically gaga for you,” He smiled at the picture. He didn’t think it was bad to be gaga over Laurel, but he really back then that he didn’t feel at all. Looking at that picture, it was painfully obvious, that he did he just didn’t know how to feel them the right way.
She pushed his shoulder with hers and grinned at him. “We’re pretty in love right now too.” She told him as she crawled into his lap and put her arms around his neck.
He shook his head. “This is something we did a lot back then too.” He laughed a little.
She shrugged. “So we did,” She said with a devious smile as she kissed him. “We did a lot right back then,” She whispered to him. He nodded. He pushed his arms behind the crook of her knees and picked her up. “What about the mess?” She asked him as she held on a little tighter and giggled.
"Doesn’t matter," He told her as he took her to their bedroom and put her on the bed. "Do you ever regret that we didn’t get to break away from people and play our relationship on our terms back then?" He asked.
She shook her head and he quirked an eyebrow up confused. “Ollie, as much as we were in love back then, it never would have worked. We both needed things that we didn’t have back then. You needed to mature a little. And I needed to have my own accomplishments, apart from you. Breaking away from Starling, it wouldn’t have helped.” She told him as she massaged the bridge of his nose with her nail.
"We were so sure of it though," He told her. "And it may not have been all the way successful, but I think getting out of her would have helped us."
She nodded. “You’re right. It would have helped. But it doesn’t matter, though,” She said as she shook her head. “Because we got together in the end. That was what I wanted from breaking free, breaking away. I wanted to be together on our terms. And we got that.” She told him as she leaned her forehead on his. She just wanted them to be in a good place. And she was happy that dream came true.
He nodded. He’d give her anything. “We should probably go to New York though. Just for our younger selves. They deserve it,” He told her with a grin. She shook her head and smiled at him. “Is that a yes?” He asked, excited.
She took his hands in hers and kissed them. “You’re younger self was kind of a little shit, but he grew into an awesome man.” She told him with a smile. “And yeah, if you still want to go to new york, I would love to go with you. For a vacation. We can’t live their this time.” She told him.
"Pinky swear?" He asked as he held his pinky up for her to take.
She chuckled and wrapped her pinky around his, “pinky swear.”
"I love you," He told her.
She scrunched up her nose and smiled, “I know.”
"Your past self grew up into kind of a little shit," He teased.
She kissed him. “I love you too.”
"Always and forever?" He asked.
She nodded. “Always and forever,” She told him.She dug into her nightstand and nudged him. “You want to see something?”
He nodded as she put the tickets in his hands. “They were the tickets from five years ago.”
"You kept them?" He asked as he looked at the date on them. They were the original tickets that he had an attendant over head over heels in love with their story with.
She nodded. “They reminded me of you,” She told him.
"Sentimental sap," He teased again.
She stuck her tongue out at him. “Jerk,” She said. “Now, go buy us tickets to New York, so we can see what our past selves wanted to break away to.”
"Yes, ma’am." He said as he took his laptop out from under the bed and bought them tickets to New York City.
I made a graphic celebrating the 50th installment of the Genuine Moment Series. This happens right after installment 49, Cards of Engagement!
Decided to take a video while flying this morning.
Best. Idea. Ever.
Reminder that this actually exists in our world
THIS IS REAL
I’m gonna cry.
i just read this and thought “humans cant fly dont lie to me sir” then realised, airplanes.
Pacing is everything. But why all this testosterone? Isn’t she interesting enough to stand on her own? If all these men need to be there, and clearly they do, then it needs to be done correctly. I don’t want to walk away from this season thinking, ‘I know more about the men in Felicity’s life than I do Felicity’. And ‘no’, Barry doesn’t count. I see their relationship as very platonic. I see it developing into a very close relationship, which I’m excited about. Honestly the only man in Felicity’s life that I want to know more about is her estranged father. Come on writers! Do not let me down.
My sort of beef with this entire plot is that we were assured that Felicity would be able to stand on her own and so far we’ve seen no evidence of that happening. All for Felicity in a relationship, girl go get some love, but I am really confused about why the excess of men for this?
I also fear the fandom double standard when it comes to love interests. I fear the misogyny of if Felicity does go out and date all the men which she is perfectly entitled to to do since she doesn’t have to wait around for anyone. Basically, I fear the fan reaction when it comes to this situation, because a woman being in control of her life seems to be the most dangerous thing about this show (at least according to fans).
Also yeah, let’s get to know Daddy! I’m completely on board with that. Give me all the daddy facts. It’s been half a season pick that thread back fucking up and give me some meat for it!
See, and this is where I sometimes take umbrage with these writers. As great as they are, I do feel that they often have trouble writing their women, especially writing them outside the male characters. They don’t really have a great track record, do they? In Season 1 they did start off by building Laurel outside of Oliver, but by the end of the season she was shunted back and forth between Oliver and Tommy. Moira was almost defined by the men who surrounded her - cheated on by Robert, manipulated by Malcolm, grieving for Oliver. All Thea did in two seasons was talk about Roy. What was the thing that Sara and Laurel talked about the most, in flashback or otherwise? Oliver. Hell, even Isabel Rochev was ultimately about two men - Robert Queen and Slade Wilson. There are very few women whose lives didn’t revolve around a man - Lyla and I guess Amanda Waller come to mind. But they hardly count, given how little we see of them.
And now our beloved Felicity is drowning in men.
I get that this is a show about Oliver, and thus it is obvious that most interactions will involve him in some way. And I honestly don’t require all shows to necessarily pass the Bechdel test, all the time or even at all. In a show like this, that test is flawed anyway. And as I said before, I have absolutely no problem watching Felicity date 4 or 8 or 15 men all at once, as long as she is happy. I see this parade of men - the hacker ex, the superhero-could-have-been, the superhero-could-be and the superhero-should-be - as an interesting analysis into her non-relationship with her father. Why is she drawn to these men? What is it about them specifically - if anything - that she responds to. And what does that tell us about her?
So yeah, bring on Daddy Smoak, because that relationship is going to explain SO much about Felicity. My own personal theory is that Felicity doesn’t get her computer brain from Mama Smoak at all; she gets that part of her intelligence from her father, and I want to see that relationship play out. Clearly the fact that they are holding back on bringing her father into the picture means that he is going to be very influential in some way - either to Felicity as a character, or to the show as a whole. Bring him on.
This is such important insight!
This post is so important. Anyone want to send this to MG or AK? Bottom line is that ALL the ladies need to be written as stand alone characters and not stuck in a tug of war between the male characters. Yes, the show is about Oliver, but people aren’t into this show just for him. I can’t help but think that this trend will continue into season 3. Obviously we have been talking about Felicity, but Thea is going to be caught in the middle of this pissing contest between Malcolm and Oliver. Laurel between Ted Grant and Oliver. Lyla will be battling ‘can I still be a mother and have a career’ nonsense. Sara? I don’t know about Sara.
I know it may seem like I’m hating on all the male characters, but really I love them all, I just love the ladies more.
I tweeted it out on my @felicia__night account.
I participated in the #ALSiceBucketChallenge after being tagged by @nikki_marie_42. I made a three-part video, first talking about #ALS, then talking about the #IceBucketChallenge and what it’s done, then finally the bucket itself. You can find the video on YouTube ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VX1furn4cBU ) and, once the site is back up (temporarily down at the moment) at AdamTheAlien.com.
