I don’t think I truly understood “shipping” until I found my #OTP (one true pair) Oliver Queen and Felicity Smoak from Arrow. Aka Olicity.
At first meeting, Olivia is a brooding billionaire-playboy turned vigilante. Always deep in thought.
THEN HE GOES TO HIS FATHER’S COMPANY’S IT DEPARTMENT AND HOLY MOLY WE SEE OLIVER QUEEN SMILE FOR FELICITY.
From there it was fate.
See, he was originally still smitten with his old flame Laurel and then, for some odd reason, kept trying to be with other girls, while Felicity was friend-zoned over and over.
The girl who made him laugh. Cry. Healed his wounds. And dealt with his overly brooding ways.
When they did finally get together, all of us who shipped it REJOICED.
Then they broke up.
Then back together.
Then broke up.
And on and on and on.
It’s the ship that keeps us all guessing really, but I am here for it.

I need a wife if I want to help save my family’s billion-dollar pub empire. There’s just one problem: I never plan on marrying. So, I need someone who understands that this is just another business deal. I don’t do commitments. And my brother’s executive assistant, Fallon Smith, fits that bill.
Fallon needs help with her grandmother’s expenses, and her pretending to be my fake wife is a way we can make that happen. She’s not my biggest fan, but we can help each other and then go our separate ways. That she’s beautiful and I enjoy spending time with her–doesn’t matter. When all of this is done, she’s heading home to America, and I’ve got a company to run.
A fake wedding and a whole lot of whiskey. What could go wrong?
