Four Arrow Felicity/Oliver Recs

I checked the community to be sure these hadn't been rec'ed before. Of course I have a folder of 'fav' fic that has nearly 300 stories in it so I knew I had plenty to choose from:

Fandom:Arrow
Pairing:Felicity Smoak/Oliver Queen
Title:Women's Studies (part of the Core Curriculum series)
Author: dettiot
Link: http://archiveofourown.org/works/3861469
Rating/Warning(s):Mature (M), sexual content
Word Count/WIP?: 8,052/Complete
Recced on LiveJournal By:jtrevizo_1013

Why This Must Be Read: AU where Oliver and Felicity meet in college - Oliver is in his frat boy persona and Felicity is her pre-Starling goth self. Somehow they hit it off and then... well, snappy banter and sex happens.

I never knew I wanted this story/AU until I read this, and then I was hooked. There's something about the characters that still connects them before the time frame the show starts at. And how things end leave it open for the sequel, Archeology along with the alternate sequel to this story, Microeconomics. I'm holding out for more stories in either version!

Why This Must Be Read:Author's Description: While nursing Iolaus back to health after a serious injury, Gabrielle falls in love. Meanwhile, Ares and Discord are up to their usual tricks. Gabrielle and Ioalus was one of the first couples that I shipped when I was a kid. This story is the epitome of what I always wanted for them. Morgan does a terrific job of keeping the character of the show and yet fleshing out the story in a very satisfactory way. It is very well written and a joy to read.
