***Notes what music I listened to as I wrote each part of the story. Just for fun ;)

***Wires by Athlete 

All Oliver could see were wires. Wires going in and out of her small & frail body. Felicity lay unconscious, her face pale and her body still; the only sign of life the beeping heart monitor. Oliver stood at the foot of her hospital bed, his face stone. He placed his hands gently on Felicity’s blanket-covered feet. Her fragility made Oliver almost afraid to touch her, but her lifelessness made him more afraid not to.

No longer is the classic male hero able to hold the mighty hammer, Mjölnir, a brand new female hero will emerge will who will be worthy of the name THOR. Who is she? Where did she come from and what is her connection to Asgard and the Marvel Universe?

“The inscription on Thor’s hammer reads ‘Whosoever holds this hammer, if HE be worthy, shall possess the power of Thor.’ Well it’s time to update that inscription,” says Marvel editor Wil Moss. “The new Thor continues Marvel’s proud tradition of strong female characters like Captain Marvel, Storm, Black Widow and more. And this new Thor isn’t a temporary female substitute - she’s now the one and only Thor, and she is worthy!”



Elephant Raju Cries After Being Rescued From 50 Years Of Suffering In Chains 

This heartbreaking story is about as elephant Raju from India that had an incredibly rough life. After being poached from his mother he was thrown from one owner to another, until he was left living in terrible conditions with no shelter at night, being used as a beggars prop all day long. Raju survived only from passing tourists and sometimes had to eat plastic and paper while being chained 24 hours a day. A wildlife organisation SOS-UK could not stand the injustice and decided to save him in a daring midnight rescue operation.

The elephant, realizing he was being saved, started to cry: “It was incredibly emotional. We knew in our hearts he realised he was being freed” – claims Pooja Binepal, one of the rescuers in an interview with Presspeople. “Tears began to roll down Raju’s face. Some no doubt were due to the pain but he also seemed to sense that change was coming. He felt hope for the first time” – says another rescuer Kartick.

Anonymous asked:

Felicity drunk dialing Oliver at like 2 in the morning.

myherocomplex answered:

[So I have developed a new head-canon about ringtones because of this prompt.]

—He Always Picks Up For Her—

The fact that Felicity had programmed his phone to play She’s a Genius whenever she called him was something Oliver had never bothered to figure out how to change.  Though perhaps not the ringtone he would have chosen, ultimately it served the purpose of telling him without looking that she was calling.

And generally speaking, when Felicity called him instead of texting, it was important.  So when Oliver woke to the song start playing from his phone at 2:00 A.M. his heart was already pounding a little with anxiety.  Blindly he grabbed at the phone, fumbling for it until finally he was able to squint at the too-bright screen long enough to hit the answer button.  “Felicity?” he asked.  “Are you okay?”

A burst of giggles met him.  “See?  I told you he’d pick up for you.  He always takes your calls.  Hi, Ollie!” Sara’s voice greeted him from the other end and he relaxed slightly, though he stayed confused.  “Say hi, Felicity!”

“Sara!  Gimme my phone back!” came Felicity’s response.  “I’m so sorry, Oliver!” she added loudly to be sure he heard.

“Um…guys?” Oliver asked, confused.

“Hi, Oliver!” came the addition of Roy’s voice in the background, and Oliver dropped his head to the pillow.  What were they doing?  It was late.

“Ollie, we were just talking about you.  You should really be here right now!” Sara teased.  “Well…actually, Felicity was talking about you, we—hey!”  There was a scuffling sound as Felicity was apparently attempting to reclaim her phone.  Oliver smiled into his pillow, chuckling quietly.

“Oliver?  Are you still there?—Sara, no!  Stop!” Felicity squealed, clearly attempting to hold the other blonde at bay.  “Roy, would you please make yourself USEFUL!” the last word came out in a shriek and Oliver winced, holding the phone away from his ear and wondering what on earth the three of them were up to.

Roy must have come to her rescue, because Felicity was back in a moment.  “Are you there?” she asked.

He grinned.  “Yeah, Felicity.  I’m here.  Are you drunk?”

“Possibly yes.”  He could almost hear her nodding her head.  “But I’m allowed to be because it’s my birthday.”

He frowned.  “What?”

“Well, technically yesterday was my birthday.  Which you forgot.  But it’s okay!” she added hurriedly.  “Because I don’t really celebrate my birthday normally, which is why you didn’t even really know that it happened, but then Roy found out and he told Sara and she decided we should make jell-O shots, but Oliver,” she said his name with emphasis.  “You never warned me that Sara makes really strong jell-O shots,” she scolded him, as though obviously this was all his fault.

Oliver was still frowning as he slowly pushed himself up in bed.  “Yesterday was your birthday?” he repeated.

“Yes, Oliver, God, pay attention.  But anyway, Sara made jell-O shots and then Roy bet I couldn’t do as many as him and he’s a brat so obviously I had to prove him wrong and I won, for the record—which is impressive now that I think about it because Roy works for this bar and jeez he should really build up a little more tolerance.”

“Um, Felicity…where are you, exactly?”

“We’re at Verdant.  Sara said she didn’t think Thea would mind as long as we re-stock the bar tomorrow. WAIT SARA, NO!”

Another scuffle had Oliver frowning at his phone until he heard Sara’s voice.  “Ollie, you need to get your butt over here, you owe this birthday girl big time.  I can’t believe you didn’t know it was her birthday!” Sara accused light-heartedly.

Feeling a little bit like a heel, Oliver rubbed a hand over his face.  “Sara…would you just…keep her out of trouble, okay?  I’ll see you all in the morning.”

“In the morning?  Well, okay,” Sara sighed dramatically.  “I guess we’ll have to go to Plan B if Felicity’s gonna get a birthday kiss.  ROY!  KISS FELICITY!”

“What?  No!” Felicity squealed in the background while Oliver glowered.

“Ew, no, Sara!  She’s like my sister, jeez!”

“Pfft.  Plan C, then.  I mean, someone needs to give this girl a birthday kiss, after all.  Hey, Ollie, what was the name of that strip club that opened up with the chippendale dancers?”

“Sara,” Oliver growled.

“Oh right!  The ‘Pony.’  HEY GUYS PACK IT IN WE’RE MOVING!” she yelled so that Oliver winced again.


“Thought so,” Sara’s voice was smug before she hung up the phone.

Irritably, Oliver got up and flipped the lights on, searching for a pair of jeans and grumbling about finding birthday presents at this hour and nobody giving anybody else a birthday kiss if he had anything to say about it.




Wednesdays (8:00-9:00 p.m. ET) on The CW

After a violent shipwreck, billionaire playboy Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) was missing and presumed dead for five years before being discovered alive on a remote island in the Pacific.  He returned home to Starling City, welcomed by his devoted mother Moira (Susanna Thompson), beloved sister Thea (Willa Holland) and former flame Laurel Lance.

With the aid of his trusted chauffeur/bodyguard John Diggle (David Ramsey), the computer-hacking skills of Felicity Smoak (Emily Bett Rickards) and the occasional, reluctant assistance of former police detective, now police captain, Quentin Lance (Paul Blackthorne), Oliver has been waging a one-man war on crime.

After suffering a massive defeat at the end of Season One, Oliver started Season Two determined to fight his battles without causing bloodshed.  But this new credo was challenged when his sworn enemy, Slade Wilson (Manu Bennett), returned to Starling City bent on destroying Oliver’s life.  Though Slade succeeded in hurting Oliver, killing his mother and driving his sister Thea to her biological father, Malcolm Merlyn (John Barrowman), Oliver ultimately defeated Slade and saved Starling City from Slade’s brutal army.

In the aftermath of this victory, Season Three opens with Arrow now a hero to the citizens of Starling.  Crime is down, people feel safer, and Captain Lance even calls off the Anti-Vigilante Task Force.  Basking in his success, Oliver believes he can finally have a private life and asks Felicity out on a date.  But the second Oliver takes his eye off the ball, a deadly villain reappears in Starling, forcing Oliver to realize that he can never be Oliver Queen – not as long as the city needs The Arrow.

Based on characters appearing in comic books and graphic novels published by DC Comics, ARROW is from Bonanza Productions Inc. in association with Berlanti Productions and Warner Bros. Television, with executive producers Greg Berlanti (“Green Lantern,” “Brothers & Sisters”), Marc Guggenheim (“Eli Stone,” “Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters”), Andrew Kreisberg (“Warehouse 13,” “The Vampire Diaries”) and Sarah Schechter (“Flash,” “Mysteries of Laura,” “Pan”).

the olicity fandom died and then came back to life. season 3 will be fabulous!!!

somewhere beyond the darkness (there is light) - Part 2 - oliver/felicity (post-season 2 fic)

Standing, Felicity headed for the bathroom and made quick work of a shower, not letting herself linger too long even though the luxurious spray made it hard to leave.

When she stepped back into her room, toweling off her hair as she headed for the closet, she could still hear the water running from Oliver’s bathroom.
