Chapter 1. (Intro)
"Hi Ollie," greeted Thea, as she saw her brother watching the news in the living room. "Look at that, you're actually home for once," she added with a grin. "Watcha doin'?"
"Hey Speedy. I'm just watching the news." Oliver answered, sounding a little distracted.
"The news?! Why don't you watch anything good? " asked Thea in mock surprise.
Oliver merely shrugged in response, and then offered Thea the remote. "You pick then." "OK."
As she sat down, both siblings (and Diggle, who had just walked in) disappeared in a blinding flash of light.
The next thing they knew, they were the living room, but not the living room they knew. Instead of the boring landscapes their mother hung up everywhere, there were several family photos of a man that looked like Oliver, only older. Standing with him looked an older Laurel. An older blonde Laurel, along with a teenaged red headed boy. What was going on?
Suddenly, Moira, Walter, Laurel, Tommy, and Felicity all appeared in blinding flashes of light. "Oh, good. You're all here." said the man from the family photos, walking into the room.
"Who are you? Where are we? Why are we here?" demanded Oliver.
"I'm you from the future. I brought to my time, in order to try to change the future for the better, and to help you all for the present. I'm going to tell you about the Island."
