“I want her, in a way I haven’t felt before, not just some kind of mindless physical drive but a real, specific desire. Not for ‘someone,’ just for her.”
↳ “You know, I’m not just some dipshit triggerman who screams at bank tellers to open their drawers. I am a scientist, a master tactician. I am a lock artist. And this is what I do. When something doesn’t make sense, this is what I do. I figure it out.”
You know, when I was a freshman I wasn’t a very good person. I mean, sure I was popular and dating seniors, but as a person, I was pretty lost. And over the last four years, I’ve been forced to grow up. I stopped letting boys define me and I started believing in myself and in my potential. And I ran for student council president and I designed a clothing line. And somewhere along the way, the lost little party girl became the girl on the wall of honor.
Once you let the darkness in….
it never comes out
Oliver & Felicity + reaction to someone taking away what they’re holding. (1x18//2x20)

I love that thing he does where he looks at felicity and breathes through his nose while his shoulders drop and his whole upper body loosens and it’s like love is just radiating out of him but he doesn’t dare open his mouth so he just has to breathe through it
Because if he opens his mouth, it will come pouring out and he won’t be able to stop it. Oliver Queen is in love with Felicity Smoak. But a part of him is still so scared of that idea. Because love has always been such a different idea to him. He thought he knew what love was but this - THIS - is so much stronger. There are days where he doesn’t breathe fully until he sees her, touches her, hears her. He thought he knew what love felt like - but then he met Felicity Smoak, and he learned that true love isn’t dangerous, it’s fulfilling and empowering and gives him more strength than fear ever did.
