callista! here to remind you that oliver knows he was in love with felicity the whole season ahahaha bye ;)
NATY. THIS FACE HERE? WHEN HE SAID BARRY IS PROBABLY DREAMING ABOUT HER? I ALWAYS SAID IT WAS CUZ *HE’S* BEEN DREAMING ABOUT HER AND NOW ITS CAAAANON!!!!
(if you don’t know what i’m currently spazing over, Marc Guggenheim assaulted the Olicity fandom with this little interview [x])
THIS WAS THE FIRST THING I THOUGHT OF WHEN I STARTED THINKING ABOUT OLIVER BEING IN LOVE WITH FELICITY ALL THROUGH S2
AND THEN HIS FACE WHEN SHE SAID ‘I FINALLY HAVE A GUY WHO’S INTERESTED IN ME’ GOD CAN YOU IMAGINE THE INTERNAL SCREAMING IN HIS HEAD
I’m sitting here laughing uncontrollably and my kids are telling my husband that i’m scaring them but i can’t stop!!!
That’s it. I’ve finally snapped.
Who’s up for a s2 rewatch!!
S2 rewatch vote placed. I have thoughts that need to be spewed all over the place (I know you wanted that mental image).
ALSO OLIVER DREAMS ABOUT HER YOU GIANT SAP.
let’s talk about these dreams he has. Because yea sure, sex dreams, naturally. But more importantly: he dreams of like, touching her hair. Or what she looks like when she first wakes up in the morning, what is her morning routine? Coffee first or shower first? And when she gets in bed at night does she take her glasses off before she turns the lights out or after? Which news station does she prefer? Is she one of those people who has to have something sweet after having something salty? And what sweets exactly does she prefer (he needs to know this information, he sees himself making many late night runs to the grocery store).
He first dreams of her on the island.
He’s been there a week, each night starring a different death, another person he promised - and failed - to save.
Laurel. His mother. Thea.
(The last three never happened, he knows. Doesn’t stop his brain from conjuring their bloody, broken bodies.)
That night, it’s Dig first. Bullet wound to the chest.
"Where were you?" he curses. "Laurel. Always Laurel, right?"
Dig becomes Tommy, turning his face away. He slams his eyes shut.
He’s racing towards the Foundry, the city falling down all around him.
She’s buried beneath concrete when he arrives. He reaches for her -
("What’s happening now is not your fault," she’d told him once. He wonders what she’d say now.)
BUT YES YES YES. OH MY GOD CAN WE TALK ABOUT THE FACT THAT EVERYTHING WAS DIFFERENT AFTER HE CAME BACK FROM THE ISLAND THAT SECOND TIME LIKE IN 2X01 HE WAS ALREADY OVER LAUREL THE TOMMY THING WAS THE LAST STRAW.
AND THEN THE WAY HE LOOKED AT FELICITY AFTER THE LANDMINE LIKE HE WAS FUCKING STARVING AND SHE WAS THE LAST MEAL ON EARTH. THAT’S WHEN IT STARTED, THAT’S WHEN HE STARTED FALLING IN LOVE WITH HER. HE MISSED HER SO MUCH MORE THAN HE HAD IMAGINED HE WOULD. AND THEN THEY GET BACK TO STARLING AND SHE’S MADE HIM A BOW AND SHE KEEPS ENCOURAGING HIM AND BELIEVING IN HIM BUT ALSO USING HER LOUD VOICE A LOT AND CALLING HIM ON HIS BULLSHIT AND HOW COULD HE NOT FALL IN LOVE WITH HER.
