making sense out of random letters

Arrow, two fic recs, Felicity Smoak/Oliver Queen

Fandom Category: Arrow
Pairing: Felicity Smoak/Oliver Queen, Laurel Lance/Oliver Queen, Felicity Smoak/OMC, Carly Diggle/John Diggle
Fic Title: White Lies
Link: at AO3
Rating/Warning(s): Teen, reference to major character death, some violence
Genre: Romance, Action
Summary: For some reason, Oliver just can't seem to come up with a convincing lie when it comes to Felicity
Why This Must Be Read: This is one of my favourite Olicity stories - it's a long slow burn (44,000 words of it) that runs all the way through season one and into what I really hope for in season two. Everything starts as canon, with Oliver trying again with Laurel and Felicity dating a believable OC, and everyone's favourite second ship (Carly & Diggle) getting a suitably happy ending. It's all from Oliver's POV, and it's real treat watching how he goes from seeing Felicity as an ally, then a friend, then something more... And there's a sequel in the works!

Fandom Category: Arrow
Pairing: Felicity Smoak/Oliver Queen
Author: Ferggirl
Link: on AO3
Rating/Warning(s): Teen. No warnings.
Genre: Five times, Fun, Action
Summary: Oliver gets himself a bit more involved in protecting Felicity. Felicity really likes it (nope) when Oliver tries to bluff his way around her. Or: Three times he responds to false alarms at her apartment, and one time it's real.
Why This Must Be Read: Technically this isn't really an Olicity fic - but there's hints of it there and all of their interactions have canon-compliant banter and there's certainly the potential for it to go romantic in the sequel teased at the end... But no, this is a lovely slice of life fic where Oliver is overprotective, Felicity is suspicious and Diggle. It's funny and sweet and totally worth reading.
