Fanfic Writer Spotlight: redtoes (NSFW)

Today is Fanfic Wednesday and I am not The Collectress! What is going on, friends? Well, I don’t often get the chance to write about fanfic on the blog, as the industry is in pretty good hands with Fanfic Wednesdays ala my blogmate but she has the day off, and so, here we are, you, me and fanfiction. The thing is, I ship a couple of ships she doesn’t ship and was told if I wanted a story/author/ship on the Fanfiction Masterlist, it had to be legit and shared here first. If you visit this site on the regular, you already know of my love for Team Arrow and Olicity. It wasn’t easy finding fics for a show with only 2 seasons, and so, with a good kickstart from my blogger, I began to discover fanfiction written in honor of the most adorable het almost-romance on TV right now, Oliver Queen and Felicity Smoak.

What happens in Vegas…

She wakes up. Her head hurts. Felicity groans and the noise hurts her ears. She raises a hand to her head and the movement makes her dizzy. She opens bleary eyes. Her eyelashes have that gritty horrible feeling that tells her she slept in her make up. Her raging hangover tells her she was drunk last night. A glint of gold on her ring finger catches her eye and sends an adrenalin shot through her brain, forcing her eyes wide open and focused onto the plain gold band on the third finger of her left hand. What the fuck? She doesn’t swear much. Doesn’t often need to, despite the many and varied parts of her life – especially the Oliver parts – that should really drive her to it. She stays cheerful. She’s always found that flusters people a lot more than breaking out the f-words. But if there was ever a moment for swearing…She’s wearing a wedding ring on her finger and she can’t remember anything since lunch time yesterday and -Oh my God.  And she’s naked in a bed that isn’t hers. And she’s not alone.

With 17 works by this author tagged “Arrow (2012)”, readers have more than enough here to satiate the need for good Olicity. There are authors with more, but the quality here can’t be beat. I love a good canon-esque piece, and this story could be just another Arrow episode, except for a couple of explicit sex scenes that are definitely NSFW. The premise is Oliver and Felicity wake up in Vegas married, with no memory of the night before. The question is, do they want to end a fake marriage or start a real relationship? This particular fic has a WIP sequel entitled “…And all I got was this lousy t-shirt” that includes nosy Laurel (ugh) looking into the newlyweds’ marriage and I am anxiously waiting updates along with the rest of the Olicity shippers.

Felicity And oliver Olicity ARROW

redtoes also has a few fics that aren’t strictly Olicity, including a really interesting take on John Diggle and Felicity’s friendship. One of my favorites is “Lipstick (on my collar)” which consists of chapter titles that are different lipstick colors and short one-off stories that read like mini episodes of the show.

Here are a few of redtoes’ finest for your reading pleasure:

One night stands and vanilla cupcakes-Oliver and Felicity need to just admit it already. Diggle will enjoy these cupcakes, in the meantime.

Good, better, best-Super fluff so sweet, you will chip a tooth.

Late fees-A librarian!kink fic just because smart is the new sexy.

If you ship Olicity but can’t find a damn thing to read, get your toes wet with redtoes and the subscribe to the feed.
