I always thought a good excuse for Oliver to be spending time with Felicity in the begining would be that Oliver was on an island for 5 years. Do you remember cell phones in 2007? Compared to smart phones in 2012? or now?
A good excuse would be that Walter, thinking highly of Felcity, would have introduced them and asked Felicty to help get Oliver back to at least somewhat up-to-date with tech. Or if Oliver had asked Walter about if someone in the IT department could help him.
And by up-to-date I dont mean anywhere near her level but the level of basic 25-30 year old consumer. Especially if they wanted him to be involved in the company. it would help if he could use a smart phone.
Flip phones and blackberries were the peak of cellphones on 2007. And thats just cellphones. That isnt the internet, that isn't onboard computers in cars, that isn't iTunes and how we consume music and media, that isn't every way computers have invaded our lives since 2007.

I really loved this. I was curious to see what the characters would do right after Past is Prologue and this did not disappoint. I just finished Past is Prologue and I finished this today. I am so excited for A Future Imperfect! I love this whole alternate reality that you created. I especially like the direction you are taking Malcolm in. Honestly he's my favorite character, and why I'm commenting on this chapter of this and not the last. He's such a dangerous enemy and a powerful ally. You've really shown in just one chapter how much he can get done, how much good he can do when he's not blinded by his anger. Anyway, great job, I'm excited for what comes next!

I suppose this chapter was just for humor right. Isabel just got Felicityied! Yeah...I just made that up. But other than that, this wasn't a very informative chapter. It really didn't do much other that have Isabel screwed over. Honestly, I would've enjoyed Slade's story better. What with him not having the mirikuru and having his memory wiped but that's being saved for the sequel. I get it.
Have you read Arrow: Vengeance? If you haven't, I recommend that you do. It's a pretty good read.
Other than that, the whole mess with Isabel wasn't just Oliver's fault. I mean Isabel was on the List and Oliver didn't even recognize that. You would think that he would've memorised that damn thing by heart. But if that is partly because Oliver abandoned that...Getting back on track here, Moira could've told Oliver the truth on why Isabel couldn't be trusted at all but she just kept quiet and Oliver just took her word for it. How about details? Moira didn't explain the whole story until after Oliver signed QC over to Isabel. Stupid move. The only reason I could come up with for Moira's silence regarding the is because if she said something then Oliver would go digging into Isabel's background and find out about her and Robert and Oliver might discover that his father was off with another of his trysts when Thea was conceived...*Shrugs* That's what I'm going with here.
On another note, I noticed that asiding from Slade, Moira was the only character that didn't receive her own character chapter of what she did during the week. Why is that? I actually wonder if she did anything in particular aside from the other times she was shown in the other chapters (any events associated with only herself that did not overlap with the events associated with the other characters). I assume that one of the main points of this story with regards to the viewing cast was to address the flaw and mistakes they had and...Moira didn't have any in your mind right? That or you really couldn't think of anything for her to do on her own time.

Okay, this is my first time reviewing this story, even though it's been up for months so I apologise. Now this is just me starting with the shorter chapter and MAN it is a short one.
There wasn't much to go one in this chapter. Diggle made some wise choices in how to handle his feelings for Carly. Now he and Carly decided to stay as friends, in-laws and family and to not go further that what they have already. I like that. One of the things that was never resolved on the show. Speaking of which, whatever happened to Carly, AJ and Big Belly Burger? They just...disappeared. Even when Andy wasn't dead, they were mentioned only.
Speaking of Andy, what are you going to do about him? This chapter was released before it was revealed that he was still alive and with HIVE in canon. So are you going to go with what canon did with him or have him stay dead? Or will you have him be alive and do something different with him?
Now then, this chapter...was disappointingly short. I mean there was so much more that could've been added. The flashdrive Mia gave Diggle on the info on Andy and HIVE. He could've looked through that. *Shakes head* Disappointing. Are you going to save that for the sequel?

Hey! After reading through all of this, I just realized that Moira Queen didn't get her own story of what she did during the week! I was actually wondering if she did anything in particular aside from the other times she was shown in the other chapters (any events associated with only herself that did not overlap with the events associated with the other characters)...

It wasn't that Oliver was stranded in hell for 5 years; it was more like he endured 5 years of numerous, hellish trials.

In a realistic situation, it may not be enough for Malcolm Merlyn to cover for Oliver by pretending to be The Hood for just one night. Starling City Police would still suspect Oliver of being another hooded vigilante by assuming that he is following Malcolm's footsteps. Therefore, in order to solidify the assumption that The Hood has been around 8 months prior to Oliver's return, Malcolm would have to continue the act every once and a while all the way up to the days prior to the public announcement of Oliver's survival.
