olicityslowburn asked: Teenage AU!! Scrawny 13 year old Felicity comes back after 4 years abroad and let's just say her best friends Tommy and Oliver are more than slightly smitten. Please!! And thank you.
Oliver glanced at his watch for the third time in the last hour. Her plane had been delayed and he’d be lying if he said he wasn’t getting anxious. Four years was a long time. Too long, by his estimate.
Tommy was trying to get in as much reading as he could before she got there. Felicity had warned them last week that she was going to quiz them on their comic book knowledge as soon as she saw them. Of course, they’d had more time than just the last week to prepare. When they met her back in third grade, she’d been a geek of the highest order and had managed to turn both of them onto the awesome world of graphic novels and sci fi. Unfortunately, since she’d left to study abroad when she was 13 years old, they didn’t have her on their backs to see if they’d read the latest issue of whichever series she was currently obsessed with. And, as was common with them, they let their reading slide in favor of others things, like girls and partying.
But, she was finally coming home. Or so the giant ‘Welcome Back Felicity’ board they had folded up and waiting said. Felicity kept in contact with them, of course. She sent long, rambling letters every two weeks, telling them about all the amazing places she’d been and what she was studying. Oliver wasn’t as good at keeping up with those letters. For every two or three of her six page letters there was one, sloppily written reply, his chicken-scratch slanted to one side, looking odd against her flowery, flowing writing. But he did write her, and miss her. Constantly, actually. The last time he saw her, she was all arms and legs, her thick, curly brown hair constantly being dragged back into a ponytail to get out of her face. And the braces, couldn’t forget the braces. The image in his head made him grin, though.
This is amazing!
