bratva!oliver appreciation post
#ugh yes#i don’t know why bratva!oliver is so fascinating but he is#pls can we have more in s3#i want the bratva backstory#i want oliver speaking russian and becoming fluent faster than anybody expects#i want him rising to the top of an organization that does not welcome americans#much less make them captains#i want a former spoilt party boy making hardened mafia thugs fear his name#because survival on the island was an animalistic but straightforward struggle#but here#it’s a game of wits and steel#outthink your opponent outplot your opponent outintimidate your opponent#and always be the one with the gun#it’s not just about living another day anymore it’s about power#and i want it alllll (via starlight-in-your-eyes)
headcanon where Oliver stopped eating peanuts when he came back from the island in season two in case he ever worked up the courage to kiss Felicity because she’s allergic
I share this headcanon so much that I once wrote a fic about this. Hahaha.
