Oliver’s little head quirk.
Thank you so much! This is probably my favorite thing he does. *sigh* <3 <3 <3
So cute. And it’s like there’s different temperaments for each… Slightly annoyed, guilt-laden, amused, intrigued, apologetic, serious and focused… All distinguishable thanks to those gorgeous eyes and the emotion on his face.
But she would dance with him and that gives me feels.
Oh my gosh. The first 2 gifs. When Oliver asked her “Time for a dance?” it was like time legitimately slowed… I seriously thought that for a minute they were going to dance together even if she was a bit miffed with him and he knew it. That would have been…so much more than (finally) getting a hug. But it was very sweet that he invited Barry to come and kind of make it up to her. I don’t think that went unnoticed by her (2nd to last gif).
Oliver Queen in suspenders
Damn you and your suspenders and your scruff and your slightly undone shirt, Stephen Amell. Damn you. You and the writers and hell - the whole crew. You like playing dirty with us throwing these things our way.
I’ll take it. It is a burden we must bear.
Shado, Slade… and Sara? No, she is not dead. She can’t be. Who do you think is the third ghost???
If they have a Christmas tie-in then they will talk about his past, his present… and maybe his future? Oh God, if Felicity’s name appears with the last ghost I’m gonna die of happiness.
who is the third ghost?!! I don’t see it in the promo!!!!
It’s Tommy. I’ll put ALL my money on that!
It is Tommy. I will be crying the entire time.
Aside from Tommy my other guess would be Oliver’s dad or possibly Malcolm Merlin since Oliver still thinks he’s dead even if Moira knows he’s alive. Malcolm comes back, drops a bomb that Thea is his on Oliver at the end of the mid-season finale.
those suspenders though
I’m just gonna keep reblogging this because… FUCK!
Writers: Future Arrow scene
Oliver wears suit with suspenders to an event. He gets hurt or has to change quickly into the Arrow getup. We see him remove suspenders and shirt. Or…we see Felicity to the rescue removing the suspenders and said shirt.
So…I saw a lot of brotherly concern and protectiveness?
I think Oliver was very good at hiding it in a “professional” way. He tries to cover things up. Hide them. As Kreisberg and Stephen said, he is just starting to realize he might feel a little more for her than he did before because hey - this guy just showed up here and Felicity is as Dig said - smitten. He’s not quite there yet but I have a feeling he’s going to start getting more protective/possessive/jealous next episode due to the fact that she let Barry in on the big secret. Both of them will end up slightly ticked at each other but it will raise the ante and tension in their relationship for that slow burn. Barry will end up being the catalyst that is the first step in Oliver realizing he has feelings for Felicity. I presume a back and forth dance between them for a lot of the rest of the season after Barry peaces out.
Possible jealousy in the episode…he ABSOLUTELY was jealous when he realized she’d just invited Barry to set up in house and was ALL about showing him around. The way his jaw locked and he kind of gave her an “Mmmhmm” rather than a yes. And when he realized she’d asked Barry as a plus one - sure, he was stating the obvious about Barry lying but when she left upset - jealous. I think it was all a jumble of emotions for him - protect people he cares about, jealous at times about her so clearly having eyes for Barry when most of the time her world is wrapped up in their trio of Felicity, Dig and Oliver, etc.
I am fully prepared and expect to see a bit more jealousy next week than this week.
Andrew Kreisberg setting the Olicity fans into meltdown. *claps* Bravo, Andrew! Keep it up! :)
Hmmmmmmm well color me curious. And of course that whole unattainable thing just makes people like me root more for them to get together because that’s how most of our minds work. I blame my parents for letting me watch Underdog cartoons when I was a kid.
This actually makes me a bit nervous. It best be continuing a slow burn. The way Kreisberg talks about it sounds like a HUGE moment and I don’t want Oliver just to do something because he’s jealous… I want a build up. A realization that he has taken Felicity for granted in some ways and for Felicity to have a life outside the time she’s with Oliver. I don’t want it all too soon, ya know? I hope the fall out is perhaps Felicity being upset with Oliver’s behavior around Barry because he’s jealous - but neither of them quite get to admitting how they feel. Just side-step it. I hope…
absentlyabbie replied to your post: Can we not make Felicity’s relationship with Barry…8D How do I love thee, let me count the ways. (Oliver jealousy is a cute little side bonus—IF WE DON’T FOCUS ON IT FFS. And I’d be cooler w/it if it was a few…
I like these thoughts. I think it’s almost like Felicity getting a feel for what Oliver must go through in trying to have a relationship (Helena, Mckenna, Laurel, etc) but also realizing all of the lies and danger that might come with it. Not that they’ll focus on the fact that this is in comparison to Oliver but Felicity eventually confiding in Oliver that she “gets it” - particularly what he said to her about being involved with people he could really care about. That would then beg the question…where do they both go from there?
We’ve also go to be realistic - Barry is around for 2 episodes of tv time. Where could his and Felicity’s relationship go? A date or two? Longer if it’s not shown on the show but spoken of?
Happy 50th Birthday Doctor Who (x)
bonus gif because major adorableness <3
