crying about this. Because to Oliver Queen, this is a first date with the woman he sees himself building a life with. The woman he’s been thinking about building a life with for the past 6 months. The woman who knows him inside out and yet still sticks around, still spends her days and her nights right beside him, fighting beside him, saving their city beside him. And they’ve done it, they along with the little team that has formed around him, have made Starling City a better place. And that’s all he wanted, for a long time. But now that he has it…he wants more. He wants more with her.
But he is also unsure because Felicity…she’s never been predictable, not that first time he took his bullet-riddled computer to her cubicle, not her reaction to him being The Hood, not ever. And well there was that whole thing where he told her he loved her, which she now believes was just part of the plan to defeat Slade. Then there was the part where her left her at the mansion to get taken by a psycho maniac who held a sword (the sword that killed his mother) to her neck (you can’t tell me Oliver doesn’t feel guilty about that). So yea he’s nervous, he’s nervous she’ll say no, nervous she’ll see what a complete failure he is at romance, nervous he’ll lose her as a friend. HE’S JUST NERVOUS OK HE’S NEVER BEEN GOOD AT ACTUAL DATING. GETTING GIRLS TO SLEEP WITH HIM, YEA SURE, BUT NOT LIKE DATING AND FEELINGS AND SHIT. HE’S THE WORST AT THAT.
THIS IS UPSETTING ME SO I’M GOING TO STOP
