Author has written 40 stories for Life is Strange, Arrow, Legends of Tomorrow, Green Arrow, Deadpool, Mass Effect, Avengers, Flash, and Batman.

Born 1994 in Czech Republic.

An ever-trying geek who often screws up stuff, has strange imagination.

Lover of a lot of video games, TV series, comic books (Marvel, DC Comics), novels (Hunger Games, Harry Potter, Inheritance Cycle, Percy Jackson etc.) and various films (and I especially love Marvel Cinematic Universe. But, I think that DC Extended Universe has been mishandled, not saying that it's bad but it's not as enjoyable to me as MCU, the only film I have really loved from DCEU so far was Wonder Woman). Also, a follower of Fast and Furious and Star Wars franchises. As a hobby, I also sing, play on guitar and piano and play video games.

Trying to come up with original characters and inserting themselves into some of the games, films, series, comic books and novels. They may not be original but I like to try to bend some stories a bit to my own imagination, my older brother helps me sometimes. The storyline remains more or less the same, with alterations, adding in my side stories but the outcome of the story is preserved.

Sometimes I add in my own version of endings in case I don't like how does the storyline originally go, while inserting my OCs. Or, I add other comic book characters into my stories from comic book adaptations to try to give the story a better spin rather than how it went down in the canon. And, if you think that my inserted versions of characters are acting differently than in comic books, remember that this is fanfiction and even then, a lot of showrunners and other fanfiction writers like me use their own spin on characters from comic books in their stories, so think about it before criticizing that my characters are acting OOC than in comic books.

Sometimes, just for fun, I create AUs.


As for my updating policy, it depends on my schedule, my other plans, or college or current ideas and inspiration for my stories, since writing a fanfiction is more my hobby and leisure, rather than a job but I try to update at least one or two stories per week. If I leave a story not updated for a while, it's either I'm busy with work from college, life, looking for inspiration for the new chapter or I'm focused on other stories currently but that does not mean I have stopped writing the one I have left neglected, so, please be patient.


Frankly, I don't see myself as a good writer of romances (not that I don't like writing them but sometimes, when I read my romances over, I just don’t feel like they have been well-written) but, no better opinion than the one of readers.


If someone would like to issue me a story challenge, I will consider it at the very least BUT if I will not go on with it, it will most likely be because of having no idea where would I even go with it to even start writing. And I have NO INTENTION AT ALL of writing incest stories, when in the canon the family members are not in romantic or sexual relationship with each other, nor do I intend to turn the main characters into gay/lesbian/bisexual when in canon they are not and I have little to no interest of reading such stories either.


As for reviews, I don't like harsh criticism or insulting at all, not only against me but also against other writers. It may be needed if you want to call us out on some inconsistencies in the stories, if the characters are acting OOC, if there are plot holes, if we are too harsh or mean towards the characters etc. but to be honest, it makes me, personally, feel like a bad writer and make me want to reconsider writing my stories.

So, while I will understand if you need to call me out on some things that you may not like in my stories, I would appreciate tactfulness and trying to put it gently without harsh language and insulting too much and if you need to call me out on some inconsistencies or something you don't like, don't be too mean, please.


! As for the guest reviews, to be blunt - If there is a guest review I do not like in regards to my story, if I find it inappropriate, redundant or offensive, it gets deleted. No exceptions. !


Current Favorite TV shows that I am watching: (FYI, there are lots of other TV shows that I like but I will not list them all below, since either I do not watch them anymore or are not my priority currently)

  • Supernatural
  • The Expanse
  • Mr. Robot
  • The Simpsons
  • Futurama
  • Lucifer
  • Stranger Things
  • Rick and Morty
  • iZombie
  • Westworld
  • Game of Thrones
  • Black Mirror
  • Arrowverse (read below)
  • MCU TV shows - Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Iron Fist, Defenders, Punisher

  • It might happen that some seasons of the TV series suck in my honest opinion, so I decide to throw "the season of the show into trash bin", so to speak but I don't want to give up on the TV series overall and I might watch them, if the reviews are good regarding the new seasons and episodes or on recommendation from a friend.


    I don't have any problem with the classic pairings in the comic books that are canon pairing or OTP, such as Peter Parker (Spider-Man) / Mary Jane, Bruce Wayne (Batman) / Selina Kyle (Catwoman), Remy LeBeau (Gambit) / Anna Marie (Rogue), Clark Kent (Superman) / Lois Lane, Scott Summers, (Cyclops) / Jean Grey, Reed Richards (Mr. Fantastic) / Susan Storm (Invisible Woman) etc. but there are some pairings in TV show or film adaptations of comic books that I do not like due to how they are executed. And if I have mixed opinion on pairing, that means I would approve if it was handled differently but currently I don’t like the execution, concept or portrayal of the pairing.


    Pairings in Batman I approve of

    Bruce Wayne / Selina Kyle and Dick Grayson / Barbara Gordon

    In my opinion, they are OTP of Batman. Selina can often be selfish and out for herself but when it really matters, she is able to recognize the right choice from wrong and stands by Bruce, showing that she truly loves him.

    Though currently, Dick can rarely keep a girlfriend for long and as far as I know, Barbara is single.

    Dick Grayson / Helena Bertinelli

    Well, despite the fact that Helena is more brutal and with less restraint than most of Bat-Family, Dick seems to be a good influence on her.

    Disliked Pairings in Batman

    Bruce Wayne / Talia al Ghul

    Despite their feelings towards each other, they often seem be at odds, mainly due to Talia’s devotion to her father Ra’s al Ghul, one of the most dangeous men that have ever walked the face of the Earth and also, there’s the problem that Talia drugged and raped Bruce in order to conceive Damien. Tragic love story that cannot end well.

    Even though Talia hates Ra’s for who he is and what he has done to her, she still loves Ra’s as her father and she is torn between her love for Bruce and loyalty towards Ra’s. Even though she became disillusioned by the League of Assassins and her father's mission, eventually, she became also disillusioned of everything and went on her own path, which is not inherently good or bad and there's a lot of grey area but still, Bruce disapproves of her methods and there are differences of opinions between them.

    I wonder why Bruce hasn’t given up on her and I'm not a supporter of "on and off" relationships that cannot be resolved and often end up with one party betraying the other and Bruce/Talia pairing is pure toxic due to Talia being a psychopath.


    Preferred Pairings (canon pairings I approve of and pairings I would like to see) in Marvel Cinematic Universe (films and TV shows; if you are not familiar with the franchise or do not watch any of the films or series, do not bother reading any further)

    Tony Stark / Maya Hansen

    Despite being a one-night stand and her making a deal with the devil, Aldrich Killian, Tony was good influence on her as she had a change of heart and tried to save Tony, which cost her her life.

    I could see them make it work, if she had not died.

    Steve Rogers / Peggy Carter

    At first, Steve didn't give her much if an impression as he seemed to be a naive kid but later, they grew to respect and trust each other and eventually it became something more, until Steve disappeared and Peggy had to move on and eventually die of aging. Tragic love story.

    Steve Rogers / Sharon Carter

    They are a pairing in comic books and they have good chemistry in MCU. I can see them make it work.

    Steve Rogers / Natasha Romanoff

    Platonic relationship between them and they interact with each other more like very close friends. Under any other circumstances, I can see them make it work.

    Plus, Chris Evans and Scarlett Johansson are long-time friends in real life, so in every movie, where they play together, they have good dynamic and chemistry.

    Bucky Barnes / Natasha Romanoff

    Well, in comic books, they were in a relationship and I would be genuinely curious to see that happen in MCU. As mentioned by Stand with Ward and Queen, they are basically Oliver Queen / Sara Lance of MCU. Both were forced to become killers on behalf of an organization that had evil intentions and both are on path on redemption.

    Clint Barton / Natasha Romanoff

    They also seem to be close friends and it was mentioned that at one point, Clint was assigned to kill her but instead, he spared her and recruited her into S.H.I.E.L.D. There was an implication in The Avengers that there may have been something more between them but then, Clint is married and has children in MCU.

    I would be curious to see how could this pairing become more and they have good dynamic together.

    Scott Lang / Hope van Dyne

    Good dynamic and potential chemistry between these two, despite the fact that Scott seems to hit Hope's nerves sometimes. Would like to see it become something more.

    Stephen Strange / Christine Palmer

    OK, at first Stephen treated Christine like crap but after his hands were injured, he found humility and tried to make amends with her. I would like to see this reformed Stephen Strange to get together with Christine.

    Bruce Banner / Betty Ross

    Lot of history between the two of them and clearly, they still care about each other, yet they did bring her father back in Captain America: Civil War but Betty hasn't showed up since The Incredible Hulk and they tried to force Bruce/Natasha, which was just out of the sudden and forced.

    Leo Fitz / Jemma Simmons

    Two lab geeks, who have known each other for a long time and this pairing has become the heart of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. I really like their chemistry and dynamic.

    Frank Castle / Karen Page

    There is something about Karen being attracted to dangerous men and she attracts dangerous trouble like honey bees, often putting herself at risk. She feels the need to help Frank after his family had been killed in crossfire, despite Frank's actions as Punisher and slaughtering criminals.

    She gets often sucked into Frank's orbit and it's up to him to save her from danger and when he needs help, he turns to her and asks her for help but also warns her to keep her distance and be careful and she is still willing to help him and does what she can to aid him, despite the trouble she had already gotten into just by being near him, causing for Frank to protect her from danger as much as he can.

    I can see this becoming something more and I think there is potential chemistry there.

    Luke Cage / Misty Knight

    An ex-con on path for redemption and a hard-ass detective with strong sense of justice. As much as she was distrustful of Luke due to his powers, she gradually came to respect him on some level and showed that she was willing to work with him and trust him. They have good dynamic and are close friends and were a one-night stand.

    Well, the only thing I don't like is how much she disliked him at first due to his powers.

    Luke Cage / Claire Temple

    Claire saved his life and she was willing to help him in his quest to make his neighbourhood Harlem a better place. During that time, they got to know each other much better and she saved his life and there was good chemistry between them.

    So, I don't have a problem with this pairing.

    Danny Rand / Colleen Wing

    Danny grew up training in K'un-L'un, mystical lost city that exists in different dimension and became the Iron Fist, sworn enemy of the Hand, a criminal ninja organization in pursuit of immortality responsible for countless calamities throughout millenias and Colleen grew up among the Hand. Not knowing who the other really was, they grew to trust and respect each other and when Danny found out her allegiance to the Hand, she naively tried to convince him that they were not the enemy, while Danny turned his back on her. However, the Hand then betrayed her and Danny saved her life and they grew to respect each other once more.

    I can see their relationship develop further than that, since they have good dynamic.

    Clint Barton / Bobbi Morse

    Well, I would like to see this happen, since they are pairing in comic books but Bobbi was in Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. instead of the films AND in MCU Clint is married and has children. This would have been a good foundation for Hawkeye solo film in MCU.

    Lance Hunter / Bobbi Morse

    OK, despite the fact that Hunter can often be an ass, he is a loyal friend, plus, he and Bobbi have good dynamic in the show and despite the fact that they hit each others' nerves sometimes, they care about each other too.

    Daisy Johnson (Skye) / Lincoln Campbell

    Well, Lincoln helped Daisy through the transition of from human to Inhuman and taught her to make peace with it. Despite how it went down with her being responsible for the fallout with his people, they still care about each other and Lincoln even willingly sacrificed himself to spare Daisy's life.

    Disliked Pairings (I don't approve of these pairings at all or have mixed opinion on them, i.e. I would approve of the pairing if it had been handled differently rather than how it went down in canon, where I don't like how it's going down) in Marvel Cinematic Universe (films and TV shows; if you are not familiar with the franchise or do not watch any of the films or series, do not bother reading any further)

    Bruce Banner / Natasha Romanoff (Disapprove)

    Out of nowhere and sudden, rushed and forced, no chemistry between them... just... not OK at all.

    Peter Quill / Gamora (Disapprove)

    OK, Peter would like to be with Gamora and it seems forced, since Gamora would NEVER get together with such a whacko like Peter. I like them both as characters in general but it's unlikely that such a ladies man like him and a badass assassin, who grew up as adopted daughter of one of the most ruthless and powerful beings in the galaxy would ever get together.

    They have good dynamic and are close friends but I don't see this becoming anything more than that.

    Wanda Maximoff / Vision (Disapprove)

    I don't approve of the pairing either in the comic books or in the films. Vision completely lacks understanding of human feelings and the way he treats Wanda is creepy. Like "stalker creepy". In comic books there may be feelings between them but it just creeps me out that someone as powerful as Wanda and a robot like Vision would actually fall in love.

    I wonder what the hell were the comic book writers thinking about this pairing in the first place.

    Alphonso "Mack" Mackenzie / Elena "Yo-Yo" Rodriguez (Disapprove)

    I think this was also forced and rushed. They did seem to care about each other on some level but I just don't buy how the pairing was executed. While they like teasing each other and Yo-Yo helped him through his grief about losing his daughter and Mack helped Yo-Yo when her arms were cut off, I just don't feel the romantic vibe between them.

    Thor Odinson / Jane Foster (Mixed opinion but most likely disapprove)

    Jane proved to be a good influence on Thor as spending time with her taught him compassion and humility and I liked the chemistry between Chris Hemsworth and Natalie Portman in the films. However, she didn't treat him too well in Thor: The Dark World, mainly because she believed that he had ditched her and some might think that this pairing was forced and rushed.

    I honestly hadn't thought of it like that before it was mentioned that this pairing was forced and rushed. And perhaps it was. In hindsight, it does seem to me that Thor seemed to fall for her too quickly. This pairing isn't going as well in MCU as in comic books, where the pairing is portrayed better.

    Tony Stark / Pepper Potts (Mixed opinion but most likely disapprove)

    Well, they do look cute together and they have this classic "romantic comedy couple" kind of vibe. Honestly, I'm surprised she's been as patient with Tony as she has so far and Tony seems to be trying to be a better man.

    Like I mentioned before, I don't support "on and off" relationships that cannot be resolved but honestly, they're so cute and I can't say I would want it to end badly for them but Tony in Captain America: Civil War and in Spider-Man: Homecoming was a total jerk and I'm not sure if Pepper would still be at Tony's side despite all that crap he has done.

    Matt Murdock / Karen Page (Mixed opinion but most likely disapprove)

    First of all, Karen was Matt's love interest in the comic books but in Daredevil TV series, it seemed more like they were to each other like brother and sister and close friends, if we add Matt's best friend Foggy, perfect BFF relationship confirmed. Honestly, it seemed forced and rushed, when they kissed in the show the first time and I don't know... Matt seems to want to protect Karen, since she's a victim but I just don't see it becoming anything more.

    Plus, once Matt revealed to her his secret, she didn't take it well, nor was she treating him much better after that but still had some respect towards him, which was mainly due to the strained friendship between Matt and Foggy which Karen noticed and neither of them gave her a good explanation, so her later negative attitude towards Matt might be because of the fact that he kept his secret identity a secret to her and that neither Matt or Foggy gave her a proper explanation of their strained friendship, when Foggy had discovered Matt’s secret, since both of them lied to her.

    If it had been handled differently, I wouldn't have any problem with that but I just don't feel the romantic vibe between them in the series, it's more like brother/sister relationship. Under any other circumstances, I would probably ship them. I liked the pairing in comic books but in MCU I don't buy it.

    Matt Murdock / Elektra Natchios (Mixed opinion but I may approve)

    Elektra was an assassin trained since childhood and she grew fond of Matt. BUT, she kidnapped the man responsible for the death of Matt's father and tried to coerce Matt into killing him and Matt did manage to beat him up. Yet, even after many years later, when Matt turned his back on her due to her unstable nature, he still had feelings for her, even when she became a deadly weapon in the hands of an evil group of ninja assassins. To me, the whole relationship had Oliver/Helena and Oliver/Sara vibe from Arrow that goes to extreme.

    They have different viewpoints on the world but still care about each other, despite their disagreements, they have good dynamic BUT Elektra goes to much greater and more extreme lengths than Matt. She is more ruthless and takes more drastic and extreme measures, while Matt shows restraint and has sense of morality and limits he would never cross, not until under extreme pressure. And Elektra is a woman, who would push Matt to extreme measures.

    Matt Murdock / Claire Temple (Mixed opinion but most likely disapprove)

    Another pairing on which I have mixed opinion. Whenever Matt needs help, Claire comes. She wishes her life had been normal but she cannot turn her back on someone in danger either. She's a loyal friend and ally to Matt, when it matters. However, Claire often disapproves of Matt's actions as Daredevil and treats him badly for that but despite all that, she will help him if he needs it. This seemed like a forced pairing and I don’t like their “first kiss” scene.

    Claire often whines about her life being normal before she had met Matt and scolds him for being Daredevil that it’s gonna get him killed but she can understand that the city needs vigilantes like him. If it had been handled differently, I probably would not complain too much about it.

    Jessica Jones / Luke Cage (Mixed opinion but I may approve)

    Two people with superhuman strength banging each other? In comics, they were married but here it seemed kind of rushed and not good chemistry and also there's the problem with the fact that Jessica, while under influence of mind-controlling psychopath, killed Luke's wife.

    I like them in comic books but in MCU it just doesn't sit with me for some reason. If it had been handled differently in the show, I'd be OK with it but can't say I'm complaining about it either.

    Daisy Johnson (Skye) / Grant Ward (Mixed opinion but most likely disapprove)

    They had good dynamic and chemistry in Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. but Ward turned out to be a psychopath and Daisy, well, let's just say it's not Daisy from AoS Season 1 anymore. Even if I wanted them together, it could not end well.

    Phil Coulson / Melinda May (Mixed opinion but most likely disapprove)

    It felt sudden and forced at the end of Season 5 of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.. Yes, there's a long history between both of them but overall, sometimes May does not have good opinion of Coulson but is respectful enough to keep her thoughts to herself and focuses on the mission.

    While she truly cares about Coulson and wants to help him, no matter what, sometimes she treats him like crap. Her LMD (Life Model Decoy) itself confirmed that May had some feelings towards Coulson but... I just don't feel the romantic vibe there.


    My opinion regarding Arrowverse (if you do not watch any of the shows in Arrowverse, do not bother reading any further beyond this point)

    Arrow

    I used to watch Smallville ever since I was a kid and when I saw the Green Arrow appear on the show, I started to read the Green Arrow comic books as well and when the character got so much popularity he got his own show, I just had to watch but I'm not so sure about Arrow anymore. I might watch Season 7 but that depends on the reviews the season gets and if the recommendations from my friends and other writer colleagues are good.

  • Seasons 1-2 were OK
  • Seasons 3-4 were crap due to Olicity, Diggle being a jerk and Laurel being arrogant throughout the 3rd season and in 4th season her dying
  • Season 5 - until the bullshit confession and Felicity being annoying (knocking out Black Siren and freeing Cayden James) and Olicity happening again, it was improvement, I liked it
  • Season 6 - I only watched Slade's return, OTA vs. the Outsiders (which was crap) and Nyssa's return, 6x16-23 but overall, Season 6 wasn't that good in my opinon, mainly because of the teammates (Diggle, Curtis, Dinah and Rene), Quentin dying and because Oliver was outed as the Arrow AND the Green Arrow and ended up in prison at the end of the season.
  • The Flash

    OK, I like the Flash (Barry Allen) as a comic book character and I loved the first two seasons but currently, since Season 3 up to now, in my honest opinion it is the same like with Arrow since it's all Smallville drama and soap opera, focused on WestAllen, which is just a stupid pairing in the show and I shall explain why later below. I stopped watching Season 4 after Crisis on Earth-X and gave up on it because I don’t like Barry/Iris pairing in the show at all. If they were gonna pair Barry/Iris in the show since they are a pairing in the comic books, they should not have done like making Barry and Iris growing up together under the same roof like brother and sister. This screams “incest” to the skies and Iris is barely able to understand Barry, if at all and Barry’s obsession over Iris makes him sabotage any other relationships he has with other girls like Linda Park or Patty Spivot.

    So, I'm most likely done with The Flash absolutely, mainly because I don't like pairing Barry/Iris in the show at all.

    Supergirl

    Currently it is not that much dramatic in my opinion but I think that since the beginning it reminded me too much of Smallville theatricality and absurdity (no offense to the show, not that it's bad but I'm not a teenager anymore so it doesn't attract me that much). I had heard though that Season 3 has majorly improved despite some missteps but I haven't found time to watch it but I will, eventually.

    Legends of Tomorrow

    I enjoyed the show at first but the only thing that annoys me currently (Season 2-3) in the show is Sara's current arrogant bossy attitude as the captain and that the show keeps reminding us of Sara's attraction to women and how she's so close to making out with a woman but I still watch the show but not as regularly as I used to. Also, giving Damien Darhk redemption in the final two episodes of Season 3 is just so freaking stupid after everything he has done, so, the Season 3 wasn't done that well. I guess Seasons 3-4 of Arrowverse shows are cursed and the only reason I will watch Season 4 of LoT is John Constantine, whose show I used to watch on NBC before it got cancelled and I like the character.


    My story collections

    Arrowverse:

    The Dar(h)k War saga

    1. The Dar(h)k War

    2. Birds of Prey

    3. The Archer and the Legends

    4. Merlyn’s Redemption

    5. League of Shadows

    6. Dearden Chronicles (prequel to Birds of Prey, Merlyn’s Redemption and League of Shadows)

    7. Years Passing By (conclusion to The Dar(h)k War saga)

    8. Strongest Together (Crisis on Earth-X story in The Dar(h)k War saga)

    I am considering doing every year a story covering Arrowverse crossovers as a separate story and involving them into The Dar(h)k War saga, such as Crisis on Earth-X.

    Oliver and Sara: Road to Redemption

    1. Eternal Flames

    2. The Sins of the Past

    3. At the Demon’s Sight

    4. Potential sequel though after what happened with Diggle in Arrow Season 6, I’ll most likely stop at the third story, since Diggle has made me mad again.


    It might often happen that I will insert Batman and Justice League characters into my Arrowverse stories. So, just to add faces, imagine that the JL characters are played by the actors, who played them in DCEU. (Gal Gadot - Wonder Woman, Jason Momoa - Aquaman etc.)

    As for Batman characters:

  • Bruce Wayne - Christian Bale (nothing against Affleck but I think Bale was more realistic, Affleck was more of the comic book portrayal)
  • Dick Grayson - Matt Long
  • Jason Todd - James Franco
  • Tim Drake - Logan Lerman
  • Barbara Gordon - Adrianne Palicki
  • As for my OCs or comic book characters inserted into the stories:

  • Henry Fyff - Chad Michael Murray
  • Nicole Fyff - Kirsten Dunst
  • Rachel Gibson - Rachel Nichols
  • Rose Wilson - Yvonne Strahovski

  • This is written in regards to my Arrowverse stories which are part of THE DAR(H)K WAR saga and writing a sequel covering "Crisis on Earth-X". Re-watching the crossover, it seemed like pure fan service and frankly, I don't like Barry/Iris pairing in Arrowverse at all. Numerous things bugged me in the crossover.

    WARNING: It also contains huge spoilers for the crossover, so beware

    Oliver of Earth-X and Kara of Earth-X are married.

    Fans often ship Oliver/Kara and the couple was among the villains in the crossover. I had to roll my eyes on that.

    Sara Lance and Alex Danvers hooking up and sleeping together.

    Honestly, I wasn't even surprised that would happen, it more like annoyed me that they needed to fill Sara's bisexual/gay quota. Even though I was curious, I did not need to see it happen.

    Leo Snart of Earth-X, a.k.a. Citizen Cold is gay.

    Again, Arrowverse pushing political agenda.

    Prometheus of Earth-X is Tommy Merlyn.

    Now, in Season 5 of Arrow there were a lot of people, who wanted Tommy to be Prometheus. But, the problem was that it would be cliché and predictable and also, Colin Donnell, the actor playing Tommy, was unavailable, due to being cast in NBC show "Chicago Med" at the time. And, even so, Tommy's face was there for like 5-10 minutes before he committed suicide, so what the hell was the point anyway?

    Felicity Smoak and Iris West saving Team Arrow and Team Flash.

    I call "bullshit" on that one right now. Forcing Felicity and Iris to save them, don't make me laugh.

    At the end, Felicity and Oliver get married, despite Felicity shouting out loud at the rehearsal dinner to Oliver in front of dozens of people that she doesn't want to marry him in the first part AND while Iris and Barry are getting wed at the end of the crossover, Felicity rudely and unsurprisingly interrupts them.

    Another example of Felicity being hypocrite, rude and annoying and no one ever, or rarely, calls her out for her disrespectful crap.

    Eobard Thawne of Earth-1, the Reverse-Flash being alive again, even though he should have been erased from existence.

    Time remnant from Speed Force? Maybe. Still, it doesn't make that much sense. I think Thawne should have died permanently in Legends of Tomorrow 2x17.

    There are so many things I disliked with the crossover that I tried to fix but it has been pointed out to me that I did put there a pointless Henry/Sara drama subplot just like in the crossover was unnecessary Sara/Alex subplot. So, I guess this is my bad and lesson learned, do not insert drama subplots around the main characters.

    Sorry, if some of you disliked my story due to this and all I can say is “My bad, I’m sorry and I will try not to make my stories pointlessly melodramatic and turn them into soap operas next time but I can only hope you have liked the story and will follow and read my other stories as well."


    Preferred Pairings (canon pairings and pairings I would like to see) in Arrow

    Oliver Queen / Laurel Lance

    If you are at least familiar with Green Arrow comic books, you know that Oliver and Dinah Laurel Lance are OTP, as much as understandable her anger towards Oliver in Season 1 and their strained relationship in Season 2 because of Tommy's death were, they should have found their way to each other but Guggenheim decided to pull that stupid Olicity card, which I didn't mind at first, but considering where did it lead... well, if you watch the show, I don't think I need to explain myself any further.

    I wish they had found their way to each other but in Season 3, Laurel, from an emotional side, turned her back on him and had a stick up her ass, developing a sense of self-righteousness and arrogance, disrespecting Oliver, which continued to the beginning of Season 4, where she justified Oliver saving Thea with Lazarus pit to resurrect Sara, without fully understanding the consequences. Though later, they again became friends, the showrunners killed Laurel off and her last words on deathbed were that Oliver would always be the love of her life. I wish Laurel had not died and that Oliver ended up with either Laurel or Sara instead of Felicity, who has little to no respect towards Oliver or any of his former or current girlfriends and Felicity treated Sara and Laurel like crap due to being jealous.

    Oliver Queen / Sara Lance

    It is a logical pairing, since Sara has been through similar hell as Oliver has been, surviving in harsh environment, forced to kill to survive, basically, she and him have a certain level of understanding to each other, since they both spent their time in the darkness and they also have excellent dynamic in the show.

    And fans of Laurel are probably going to hate me for it and what I'm writing here is NOTHING AGAINST Laurel's character but I'm just stating the facts here. I love both Sara and Laurel as characters and as their Canary alter-egos. Sara had an embarrassing crush on Oliver before the Gambit and Laurel knew it. Out of jealousy, she called the cops on Sara at Tommy's party and Sara was grounded for month and next thing she knew, Laurel was dating with Oliver. So, Sara going on Queen's Gambit is not completely on Oliver convincing her but because Laurel screwed Sara, so Sara decided to get back at her.

    If it hadn't been for Laurel's jealousy, I could see them make it work. I love Oliver being with either Laurel or Sara.

    Oliver Queen / Helena Bertinelli

    If it hadn't been for the fact that Helena turned out to be a psychopath, I could see them make it work, since they both have a lot in common. Fathers who have done bad things, that impacts their personal lives, loss of a loved one... they would have been a good couple. I wish that Helena had returned to the show more often.

    Oliver Queen / Nyssa al Ghul

    I do not want to hear any comments on that Nyssa is a lesbian, there are a lot of fanfiction stories out there, where the main characters are either bisexual or gay, despite Nyssa being portrayed as lesbian in the show, there seems to be some unexploited chemistry and a lot of good dynamic between her and Oliver, since both of them are fellow warriors, so criticizing me for pairing them both would be very hypocritical of you.

    Sara Lance / Nyssa al Ghul

    I honestly do not mind Sara being bisexual but I am annoyed by the fact that currently in Legends of Tomorrow, the showrunners keep reminding us of the fact that Sara is attracted to women, as if we are idiots. It often happens in the show that Sara is interested in another woman or is making out with another girl, or someone in the show makes a crack that Sara is into girls, which has become irritating and annoying at this point and it is no longer cute or funny.

    As for Sara's relationship with Nyssa, I can understand their attraction to each other, even though they fell into each other due to the development of Florence Nightingale syndrome, when Nyssa fell in love Sara, while nursing her to health after she saved her after the sinking of Amazo. In my opinion, in the entire Arrowverse, the only two viable romance options for Sara so far have been Oliver and Nyssa.

    Roy Harper / Thea Queen

    I just loved their story in Arrow but Roy's character was completely wasted and had a lot of potential. That was because of Colton Haynes' contract and then his health issues. I wish they had given Roy/Thea relationship far more development.

    Felicity Smoak / Ray Palmer

    They had good dynamic and chemistry and both of them are tech geeks. Unfortunately, the showrunners decided to listen to the fans and ship Olicity, which later turned out to be a huge mistake.

    Disliked Pairings (I don't approve of these pairings at all or have mixed opinion on them) in Arrow

    Oliver Queen / Felicity Smoak

    The relationship Oliver Queen / Felicity Smoak shall be elaborated further later below. In summary, Felicity has almost always disrespected Oliver and treated him like crap, which was a big mistake from the showrunners and no one has ever called her out for it and Oliver, having lost all of his self-respect, didn't even fight back on her constant verbal abuse and yelling. And she is also a big hypocrite, when she gets highly upset about Oliver keeping secrets from her and lying to her but she has no problem lying to him. The example could be made about Oliver being forced to keep William a secret from her, or Felicity keeping secret from Oliver that Ray had been building ATOM suit to fight crime and she didn’t come clean about it until Ray was intending to arrest him and expose him as the Arrow or Felicity helping Team Arrow while Oliver was away with her behind his back.

    While in Season 6 Felicity has changed for the better more or less and she is not as abusive towards Oliver as before, there are still some moments when I need to face palm at her behavior.

    Oliver Queen / Talia al Ghul (Mixed opinion but most likely disapprove)

    OK, the reason I’m mentioning this pairing is that I’ve read some stories with this pairing and I can see why would the people pair them and frankly, I have mixed opinion on this, which means I can see the pros and cons. Talia helped Oliver channel the darkness and create his “Hood” persona. She was from a large part responsible for Oliver becoming the man he is today.

    They had good dynamic in the flashbacks in Season 5. Now, could they have ever gotten together? Perhaps. BUT (and this is mostly on showrunners) Talia seemed to turn a part of Oliver into a monster as she taught him skinning technique and Oliver later used that to skin a man alive for interrogation and practice. I think the reason this was shown in the series was to convince us that Oliver is a monster that enjoys killing, which I don’t buy at all, not even for a second.

    Plus, when Oliver killed her father, Talia seemed to have turned into a hypocrite and psychopath and she had lost her sense of honor and common sense, since Oliver was meant to be the next Ra’s and Ra’s wanted to wipe out an entire city with a bio-weapon and it was either Oliver or her father. Talia became a hypocrite because she trained Simon Morrison (Adrian Chase a.k.a. Prometheus), who wanted revenge on Oliver because he had killed Chase’s father, Justin Claybourne, who infected hundreds of people with tuberculosis and Claybourne’s name was on the list, the same list that Oliver targeted on persuasion from Talia.

    If Talia had not been the psychopath she is in the show and in the comic books, due to her unhealthy loyalty to Ra’s al Ghul, I can see her and Oliver getting together somehow, if only for a short time. I am intrigued about this concept but considering how she is portrayed in the show and in the comic books and her apparent insanity and psychopathy, not happening at all.

    Just like in comic books, on one hand, she hates her father for who he is, since Ra's is a traditionalist stuck in his ways, who would never give the mantle of the Demon to a woman and both Talia and Nyssa had been trained for this role since childhood, but on the other hand, she loves Ra's as her father. Ra's had lived since the age, when women were mainly good for living as maids or carrying babies, so it's very unlikely he would have given the Demon's Head's mantle to a woman.

    If Talia had not been so devoted to her father and had not been the psycho she is in the show and in comic books, I can see her and Oliver getting together somehow, at least for a while but it is very likely that it would end up like with Bruce/Talia pairing, two parties hating each other for disapproval of each others’ methods and perceptions of the world. Even if Oliver and her got together somehow, I'm sure it would not last for long, mainly due to their differences of each others’ opinions.

    So, while I understand why some fanfiction writers may want to pair them, I do not support this pairing. Though it makes me wonder, how would Oliver/Talia pairing work out if she had not been as unstable as in comic books and in the show? Though I honestly doubt I would ever write a story with such pairing, mainly due to my opinion on Bruce/Talia in Batman. Oliver/Talia pairing would probably be just as toxic but I am intrigued about how it could have been handled, if written properly.


    Sara's relationships in Legends of Tomorrow

    Frankly, Sara currently portrayed in the show is a pale imitation of the version of Sara we had met the first time in Arrow Season 2. She has become bossy and arrogant and it often happens in the show that Sara is making out with another girl or someone in the show makes a comment that Sara is attracted to women, constantly reminding us of her bisexuality, which annoys me. Also, in finale of Arrow Season 5 her father almost dies and she doesn’t check in on him and she visits the wedding of Barry and Iris and gets a hookup with Alex Danvers in Crisis on Earth-X? Ugh, just shows that it’s not the Sara I used to love, who was initially introduced to Arrow Season 2 anymore, just a pale imitation.

    Sara Lance / Leonard Snart

    I think that the whole CaptainCanary thing around these two is plain stupid. I can see why the fans would want to ship these two BUT throughout the entire Season 1 of Legends of Tomorrow there had been no chemistry between these two. They may have grown to trust each other throughout the season and had some dynamic going on BUT neither of them expressed any interest in each other until 1x15, where Snart sacrificed himself and Sara kissed him. So, no, I honestly don't see how this would happen, given how it went down in the show.

    Sara Lance / Mick Rory

    Even though Mick hits Sara's nerves with his gruff and impulsive attitude, they have some good dynamic. I do not ship these two but I think they make a good couple on a platonic level, being good loyal friends to each other, something like with Oliver and Diggle.

    Sara Lance / Ray Palmer

    I think Ray and Sara care about each other like a brother and sister. I think there's a potential for this relationship to develop further than that but currently, they don't care about the other more than close friends and neither of them have expressed that they want more for the other one.

    Sara Lance / Ava Sharpe

    The relationship Sara and Ava Sharpe in Legends of Tomorrow since Season 3, well, I can't help it but I honestly think it was rushed and forced by fans, who were shipping these two. I think the way it happened was too fast and I just don't like how it happened even though I think there might be some chemistry between these two and they do look cute together but then it turned out that Ava is a clone and yet, Sara still continues her relationship with her. I don't like how it's going down.


    Pairings in Legends of Tomorrow

    I pretty much dislike all the pairings that have been canon in the show so far.

    Sara Lance / Ava Sharpe

    Like I mentioned before, the pairing in Season 3 seemed rushed and forced by fans. * rolls eyes * I don't get how Sara can continue the relationship when Ava is a clone.

    Carter Hall / Kendra Saunders

    They say that they are meant to be BUT, there was no chemistry at all between them in the show, so it seemed pointless. And since I'm talking about Kendra, she seemed to be a promising character, when she was initially introduced in The Flash but, she kept on whining, "Such a long time ago, I was a barista, not some reincarnated Egyptian warrior demi-goddess." * rolls eyes * Want to put a gag on her for that or cut her tongue out.

    Ray Palmer / Kendra Saunders

    Seemed stupid and also forced by fans, also, this pairing was the center of drama in Season 1 of Legends of Tomorrow.

    The same about forcing and rushing a pairing and center of drama I could say about Nate Heywood / Amaya Jiwe in Season 2-3, that felt sudden to happen, plus, a historian and a war hero from World War II? Really? This may be a literal "screwing with history".

    Pairings in Legends of Tomorrow I would like to see

    Mick Rory / Amaya Jiwe

    I think there's a lot of dynamic between these two and while I do not ship them, they are a good team and Amaya seems to have positive influence on Mick. It would've made a lot more sense than how they handled pairing Amaya and Nate.

    Sara Lance / Ray Palmer

    Like I said, this has potential but neither side wants more from the other, so it is not likely to happen.

    Sara Lance / Leonard Snart

    I don't like the whole CaptainCanary thing but if either of them had shown feelings for the other, I could see them make it work but they had no chemistry whatsoever in the show. If it had been handled properly, I would not have any problem with that. Them together was pure fan service and neither of the characters had expressed their feelings until Snart sacrificed himself in 1x15, where he and Sara kissed each other.

    Ray Palmer / Zari Tomaz

    Two tech geeks, like video games, they could really relate and both have a sense of humor. I can see that happening.


    The following opinions regarding Felicity Smoak and Iris West I have copied from Stand with Ward and Queen and Phillipe363 and I wholeheartedly agree with both of them and I also have added my own opinions regarding the mentioned characters.


    Why has been Felicity Smoak such a disliked character

    I used to like Felicity in the first two seasons of the shows because of her cute, dorky personality but in the following seasons, she became very unlikeable and here I will explain why and before anyone says so, I don't like the character completely, like I said, I liked her in the first two seasons but I don't like what happened with her development beyond the second season and I blame the showrunners Marc Guggenheim, Greg Berlanti, Andrew Kreisberg and Wendy Mericle for it, so focus the blame on them and not me. If they had handled Felicity properly, I wouldn't have to keep on ranting about her, so focus the hate on them.

    Even though the showrunners try really hard by making her look better in Season 6 and I like her surrogate mother role with William, there are still some issues with her I shall list below.

    She is an inconsistent character:

    In Season 1, the first time she was introduced, Felicity was so likable because she was funny, quirky, geeky, and babbled uncontrollably, which was honestly amusing.

    The problems for her character started in early Season 2. In moments when she would have previously shown Oliver support and offered him counsel, she out of nowhere starts tearing him down instead. This becomes a recurring theme every time he would do something she disagreed with over the next seasons. Felicity also started out as the character who was not OK with Oliver killing, she absolutely loathed it in fact.

    Then in Season 3, out of nowhere, she becomes the character who tells Oliver who he should and shouldn't kill. I would not be so critical about this if it made sense, if they showed Felicity learning that sometimes there is no alternative but to kill. But they didn't and it makes no sense how Felicity does this complete 180 on this matter. In addition, all the little quirks and qualities that made Felicity so likable originally were completely removed overtime.

    Also, what makes no sense at all and is completely ridiculous is for example in 3x23, Felicity flawlessly flying with Ray’s ATOM suit and rescuing Oliver after he fell off the dam after his duel from Ra’s al Ghul. Yes, she helped Ray build the suit but there was no indication that she had used the suit before she rescued Oliver, therefore her saving Oliver that way is complete bullshit.

    They seemed to learn their lesson in Season 5 and tried turning her back into who she used to be, even if they seemed to be trying too hard. But they once again proved the inconsistency of Felicity's character by turning her back into the character she was in Seasons 3-4, when she and Thea went behind Oliver’s back and got Susan Williams fired, Felicity knocking out Black Siren with a single punch, when she had just trained punching with Oliver the same day and I should remind that Black Siren was knocked down by a car in The Flash 2x22 and was unfazed by it.

    Felicity freeing Cayden James, leader of cyber-terrorist group she had been working with or Felicity apologizing to Oliver for flipping out on him regarding William, which would’ve been understandable when Oliver was keeping his existence secret from her but she had the audacity to claim that Oliver should have consulted with her the decision to send him away, when Felicity was in no position to be consulted with, since she’s not William’s mother, nor was she married to Oliver at that point and had no legal claim to decide about William's life. Though she did apologize to Oliver for it in 5x20. However, in 5x23, the season finale, the apology lost its value, when Felicity was once again complaining about Oliver not consulting with her the decision to send William away to Samantha, William’s mother. Same thing happened in 6x16 regarding her disrespectfulness towards Nyssa, since she was fellow wife of Oliver. Had it been someone else, Nyssa would have killed them for insulting her, yet Felicity survives with no harm at all.

    The way she treats Oliver:

    Honestly, Felicity has to be one of the worst girlfriends in television history. No self-respecting man, no, person, would put up with the crap she pulls. Felicity does not support Oliver. Well, scratch that. She supports Oliver so long as it is something she agrees with. But if not, then she is the least supportive person alive. And she makes no attempt to hide it or be nice about it. This goes into the tearing Oliver down part I mentioned earlier.

    When she disagrees with Oliver, the way she talks to him is so full of condescension that it is honestly baffling how Oliver or anyone else does not call her out on it. I will give more examples of this in later parts of this, but the worst she has ever treated him is when Oliver invited her mother to town and after they broke up.

    Both times, Felicity repeatedly makes these snippy little comments, insulting and degrading Oliver in front of everyone. That is not OK at all. In fact, I can tell you from experience that that is emotional and verbal abuse. How no one said anything or stood up for Oliver is honestly baffling. If this was a soap opera where Felicity was just introduced as Oliver's new girlfriend with no prior knowledge of Felicity, the fan-base would be blowing up with how much they hated Felicity. Plus, sometimes it seems she treats Oliver's girlfriends (McKenna, Laurel, Sara...) like meaningless flings and like if they are sluts. Shame on Felicity, I say.

    Her selfishness:

    Felicity honestly must be one of the most self-centered characters in the show. Her mother worked so hard to support her, working two jobs to get her through school and possibly college, since it is never pointed out or clarified if Felicity got into MIT because of a scholarship or not. And Felicity does not seem to appreciate anything her mother has done and treats Donna with such disrespect, basically calling her a whore in Donna's first appearance and kind of implying in Season 2 that Donna was a bad mother.

    She is also very selfish in her relationship with Oliver, the best example being the first time Oliver found out about his son. She had no right to be upset with Oliver. I mean, she certainly had a right to be surprised but not upset. Oliver had just found about his son less than a day ago, he had not even had time to process this news emotionally. And Felicity throws this big temper tantrum because Oliver did not come right away to tell her. The world does not revolve around Felicity Smoak, people.

    Felicity can be self-righteous to the point of talking to Rene, acting as though his testimony against Oliver was out of a whim, when she knew full well he did this for his daughter and nothing else. Felicity is extremely arrogant to the point of being delusional, this is evidenced by the fact that after Rene compared Oliver to Cayden James (regarding the two latters violating their privacy); Felicity stated that he, Dinah Drake and Curtis Holt are the ones who gave up on Oliver and "you don't get to stay mad at him because he violating you privacy, that's not the way it works"; in truth, they have every right to be angry with there former team leader for violating their privacy.

    Her hypocrisy:

    Felicity is a big hypocrite on a lot of issues, but the biggest one is about trust and lying. She thinks lying to her is the worst thing anyone can ever do, but she does not seem to have any problem doing it herself. In Season 3, she helps her then-boyfriend Ray build a super suit to help him fight crime. Something that, in all actuality, could have gotten him killed. It is not just a right, it is her obligation as a member of Oliver's team to tell him and the others. But, for months, she was completely silent. That is a huge betrayal of the team's trust and what makes it worse is when she eventually came clean, Ray was about to expose and and apprehend Oliver.

    When Oliver was being framed for murder, Ray announced he would do everything he could to bring him to justice. Felicity had to have known he would use the suit and you'd think she would mention something like that to Oliver. But no, she is still completely silent on the matter until Ray knows who Oliver is and is ready to turn him in. Another big example is in Season 4, the entire time she was away with Oliver, she had been helping the team behind his back. And a rather telling thing is Oliver's reaction. Instead of getting mad like a five-year-old, Oliver handles the situation like an adult.

    And the most telling example of Felicity's hypocrisy is her storyline in Arrow Season 5. Felicity worked with a cyber-terrorist organization and lied to Oliver about it while lecturing him about needing to trust people she helped Helix free their leader Cayden James, who caused a lot of trouble in Season 6, so most of the things that happened there is her fault.

    That is why I think Felicity is such an unlikable character these days. Felicity does not seem to want to admit to her mistakes and no one is willing to call her out on it. Which has been detrimental to Felicity as a character and the show as a whole.


    Why I think Felicity Smoak on Arrow may be a sociopath

    The term Sociopath is around a lot these days in media and real life but I don't think a lot of people these days really know what a sociopath is. A sociopath is a person with a psychopathic personality whose behavior is antisocial, often criminal, and who lacks a sense of moral responsibility or social conscience. There are ten signs of a sociopath and it is disturbing to note that Felicity Smoak, a character put a pedestal by her fans, the characters, and even the writers, displays several of these signs.

    1: Sociopaths are charming. Sociopaths have a certain charm to them that attracts people to them, making people want to be around them and often times creating loyalists.

    This is very apparent with Felicity as her charm attracts Oliver and Diggle and often times makes them her loyal puppets.

    2: Sociopaths lack shame, remorse, or guilt. They are simply not capable of feeling these emotions, which allows them to easily betray and lie to people.

    For all of the things she has done, betraying the entire team in Season 5, working for a cyber-terrorist organization, emotionally abusing Oliver,. etc, she has shown no remorse, guilt, or shame. The only time she has shown these emotions is when she was forced to blow up Havenrock and even then, it is only after it happens that she does. Immediately following, she shrugs it off. While this was briefly revisited in Season 5, there was something off about that remorse, like it was being faked. The same about feigned remorse could be said about apologizing to Oliver about William in Season 5, and she whines about it to Samantha in the finale.

    3: They seek to dominate win at all costs. Sociopaths will viciously defend their point of view to the point where it loses credibility and seek to be in control constantly.

    Felicity often times needs to be in control of the situation, she takes over, talks over the top of people. She repeatedly undermines Oliver's authority as leader and, during their trips to Central City, will take over Cisco's station all but pushing him out of the way despite the fact that Cisco is just as capable of hacking as she is.

    4: Sociopaths are highly intelligent.

    I don't think I need to explain this one. Felicity is obviously very smart and she will often times use her intelligence to her advantage as sociopaths do.

    5: Sociopaths are incapable of love and self-serving.

    For someone who claims to love Oliver, every time he falls short of her expectations, she is ready to bolt. It was never clear if Felicity actually had feelings for Ray or was simply using him. Her self-serving tendencies are very clear throughout Seasons 3-4, she walks away twice, first because Oliver supposedly 'dies' and second because they break up, showing she does not care about the city or the team.

    6: Sociopaths never apologize. Sociopaths are never wrong, even when shown proof they are wrong, they never apologize.

    Felicity never apologized for betraying the team, for walking out on them, for undermining Oliver's authority as leader. The only time she apologized was for the William situation a year later and even then, it was for manipulation purposes as the Season 5 finale reveals that it was not a genuine apology.

    Unlike Oliver, Felicity is incapable of apologizing or admitting when she is wrong, even when she is faced with cold hard facts; this is evidenced by the fact that after Oliver tried in a failed attempt to get Rene, Curtis and Dinah, she refused to respect her former teammates decision to create a team of their own (the Outsiders) stating that Cayden wants the team to be split up, only for Curtis to coldly point out that Cayden isn't the one who created an environment of distrust, treat his teammates differently from his other teammates, or demand loyalty/allegiance, Felicity was sad/hurt by what Curtis said; but she still didn't apologize to her former teammates for wrongfully/unfairly violating their privacy.

    7: Sociopaths are delusional and believe something is true simply because they say it is.

    In Season 5, when Oliver calls the leader of Helix a criminal, she argues back, saying he is not a criminal and expects Oliver to believe it simply because she does. Every time Felicity thinks something, she believes others must believe share it as fact simply because she is the one saying it.

    Like I mentioned earlier, Felicity is extremely arrogant to the point of being delusional, this is evidenced by the fact that after Rene compared Oliver to Cayden James (regarding the two latters violating their privacy); Felicity stated that he, Dinah Drake and Curtis Holt are the ones who gave up on Oliver and "You don't get to stay mad at him because he violating you privacy, that's not the way it works."; in truth, they have every right to be angry with their former team leader for violating their privacy.

    Now, one of two of these signs could be shrugged off but seven of the ten signs? No, it's not possible. And that is why I believe Felicity Smoak is a sociopath.


    Why Felicity Smoak is a Mary Sue

    There has been a long-standing argument between Felicity Smoak fans and those who dislike the character of Felicity on whether or not Felicity is a Mary-Sue. Using the definition from Springhole.net, I attempt here to show that Felicity is indeed a Mary-sue.

    A Mary-sue is a character (Male, Female, or otherwise), who is given or expected to be given unwarranted preferential treatment and unearned respect, thereby compromising the integrity of the story and/or its characters:

    Felicity was certainly given preferential treatment, as Oliver and Diggle, in particular, go out of their way to accommodate Felicity's every need. Ray Palmer named her Palmer Tech's CEO, despite Felicity having no experience running a multi-million dollar company, Team Arrow will do whatever Felicity says and Cisco will let her take over his station whenever she wants when she visits S.T.A.R. Labs.

    Even Ra's al Ghul rather than killing her for disrespecting him in his own home, doesn't even blink and instead basically tells Felicity to go sleep with Oliver. As for unearned respect, while she certainly earned it with Oliver and Diggle, she really did nothing to earn the kind of respect given to her by Laurel and Thea. Furthermore, Rory, who lost everyone he loved because of Felicity, gives her an unrealistic amount of respect considering what happened. The rest of the recruits give her similar amounts of respect. So she meets that definition.

    Characters who are usually grouchy or hostile will immediately be able to sense the innate goodness/specialness of the sue and will immediately warm up to them:

    This is best seen with Oliver in Season 1. He is immediately drawn in by her. However, it is not simply limited to Oliver. Nyssa has an encounter with Felicity in the Season 2 finale where Felicity tries to be intimidating. Normally, Nyssa would cut off Felicity's head but Nyssa, for some reason, doesn't even react. The Reverse-Flash, disguised as Harrison Wells, points out how awesome Felicity is within the first ten seconds of meeting her.

    Enemies and rivals of Mary Sue will be easily and quickly defeated or pose no series threat:

    Felicity, despite having no physical training whatsoever, was somehow able to knock out Black Siren with a single punch. She was able to defeat the Bug-Eyed Bandit twice, once by not even meaning to and, despite her father being "the best hacker in the world", she was able to beat him in a battle of skill.

    Other characters will be inordinately fascinated with the Mary-sue, even to the point of obsession:

    Oliver and Diggle in particular fit this mold. They go out of their way to accommodate her and all but bow down to her, kissing her feet as she can do no wrong in their eyes. But they are not the only ones guilty of this, as Quentin Lance has a soft spot for her as well despite having limited interaction with her, expressing concern over her and the S.T.A.R. Labs team does as well, the Reverse-Flash is immediately shown to be in awe of how awesome Felicity is upon first meeting her. Unless they are a Villain, every character is immediately fascinated by Felicity upon meeting her. And even then, some of the villains such as Slade Wilson and Ra's al Ghul are subject to this as well.

    Things that were supposed to have been true hardships won't have a realistic impact on the character's life. Things that should be traumatizing might not be. Emotional traumas might disappear at the writer's convenience:

    Felicity was paralyzed in an attack by H.I.V.E.. She does not realistically struggle with this, as it takes one episode for her to get over it. Then she gets a computer chip that allows her to walk. She nukes thousands of lives in order to save millions and yet just shrugs this off.

    Mary Sue's rarely, if ever, have to deal with the realistic consequences of their actions:

    Felicity has repeatedly undermined Oliver's authority as leader, disrespected him, and been a downright bitch to him in front of the other members of Team Arrow. And yet, none of them have ever called Felicity out on it or defended him, in fact there have been times when they are actually amused by it. When Rory found out that she was responsible for Havenrock getting nuked, it started off very realistic with Rory not being able to be around her or work with her.

    But, realism got thrown out the window in the following episode, when he forgives her. While Rory would no doubt be able to understand why she did it and be able to work with her, he would never be able to forgive her. Felicity joins a cyber-terrorist group called Helix and they offer to help her find Adrian Chase if she breaks their leader out of A.R.G.U.S.. This causes her to betray the team and even stop Oliver from apprehending Helix. And yet afterwards, the team lets her back in with no questions, it is not even brought up again that she stabbed them all in the back.

    Every time she walks away scot-free with the bad things she has done, no matter the severity of her actions.

    Very often, Mary Sue's are creates for the readers or viewers to admire, envy, or pity rather than emphasize with:

    Felicity's flaws are usually brushed off or ignored in favor of reminding us of how awesome Felicity is.

    So, every definition of a Mary Sue, Felicity meets. So, without a doubt, Felicity Smoak is indeed a Mary Sue.


    Now, all these things are mainly in regards to Seasons 2-5. I'll admit, in Season 6 they tried hard to make Felicity likeable and I didn't mind her and her role of surrogate mother for William was cute. The only time she did annoy me was when she was insulting Nyssa, simply for being a fellow wife of Oliver and when she was arguing with teammates about surveying them when one of them was testifying against Oliver. Honestly, I was surprised Nyssa didn't outright slit her throat for Felicity disrespecting her. But asides from that, Felicity has become far more tolerable.


    What I didn't like about Arrow Season 3

  • Killing off Sara
  • Olicity centered soap opera drama
  • Everyone disrespecting Oliver's authority and Oliver's loss of self-respect
  • Laurel becoming arrogant, self-righteous and having a stick up her ass and disrespecting Oliver
  • Diggle basically telling Oliver to go screw himself because Oliver kidnapped Lyla, which he had to do in order to gain League's trust
  • Malcolm becoming an anti-villain, when he should be a full-time villain
  • Felicity's hypocrisy about not telling Oliver about Ray building his ATOM suit which almost got Oliver arrested
  • Oliver giving the mantle of Ra's al Ghul to Malcolm, which makes no sense
  • What I didn't like about Arrow Season 4

  • Olicity centered soap opera drama
  • Felicity treating Oliver like crap and Oliver does not fight back, nor does anyone call her out on it
  • Oliver's fighting skills significantly reduced and he has problem taking down an ordinary thug like Lonnie Machin
  • Mishandling Malcolm as Ra's al Ghul, since the plotline seemed promising and they wasted so many opportunities with him and League of Assassins
  • Marginalizing Nyssa's fighting skills to fit the plot, Nyssa was unable to defeat Malcolm, when she was training in the League since childhood, that does not make any sense
  • Felicity flipping out on Oliver because of Oliver being forced to keep him a secret from her and her claiming that she should have been consulted, when she had no right whatsoever
  • Diggle not being able to move past Oliver kidnapping Lyla and keeping secret the connection between Andy and H.I.V.E
  • Killing off Laurel - THAT was a big mistake and the last straw for me regarding the season
  • What I didn't like about Arrow Season 5

  • Oliver being portrayed as serial killer, who enjoys killing - that contradicts with everything he has done so far as a vigilante
  • Felicity knocking out Black Siren was outright ridiculous, Felicity ordering the newbies to attack Black Siren, when she had no authority whatsoever, Felicity freeing Cayden James and associating herself with cyberterrorist group
  • Anatoly becoming Oliver's enemy
  • What I didn't like about Arrow Season 6

  • Oliver being under investigation and getting impeached
  • Vigilante revealed to be Vincent Sobel, Dinah Drake's former partner and lover. I mean, seriously?!
  • Dinah, Rene and Curtis feeling betrayed for Oliver spying on them, when Rene was testifying against him and they all abandoned him for that, when it was actually Felicity putting them under surveillance behind Oliver's back
  • Diggle being a selfish jerk again
  • Dinah, Rene and Curtis beating up Quentin and almost killing Thea for protecting Black Siren, when Dinah was out for revenge for Black Siren killing Vince, which Laurel did reluctantly and showed remorse later over killing Vince
  • Ricardo Diaz beating Oliver in fistfight, since all we know is that Diaz had a rough childhood and don't get me started on Oliver's combat skills, he’s been trained by Yao Fei, Shado, Slade Wilson, in A.R.G.U.S., by Bratva (Russian mob) and by Ra’s al Ghul and Talia al Ghul
  • Oliver being arrested and going to prison
  • Felicity did not annoy me anymore in Season 6 and she seemed to be much more tolerable. The only times she did annoy me was when she insulted Nyssa and when she went behind Oliver's back and spied on his teammates

  • Prefered Pairings (canon pairings and pairings I would like to see) in The Flash

    Barry Allen / Patty Spivot

    Both Barry and Patty have a lot in common, as for their personality and interests and their chemistry is just great, both even have a little darkness in them because of, go figure, the loss of a parent. What's not to like about these two? Definitely a fitting couple, in my opinion, if the writers hadn't written her character off the show in Season 2, a bit more honesty from Barry about him being the Flash and I could see the relationship develop further.

    Barry Allen / Kara Zor-El (Kara Danvers)

    They have chemistry and very good dynamic, both have superpowers, both have similar personalities, both have been raised by people who were not biologically related to them after their biological families were taken from them. If circumstances allowed it, these two would be the ultimate power couple.

    Barry Allen / Caitlin Snow

    There seems to be a lot of potential unexploited chemistry between these two, despite not being a pairing in comic books. If it hadn't been for Barry's unhealthy obsession with Iris, I can see them make it work somehow.

    Cisco Ramon / Lisa Snart

    Call me crazy but despite the fact that Lisa helped her brother Leonard Snart, a.k.a. Captain Cold, kidnap Cisco and torture his brother Dante, there is very good chemistry between her and Cisco.

    Disliked Pairings in The Flash

    Wally West / Jesse Quick

    They seemed like a cute couple BUT Jesse didn't care that much about Wally and she ditched him with a holo-message. Plus, she has inherited her father's (Harry Wells') arrogance.

    Caitlin Snow / Julian Albert

    This pairing seemed cute but in hindsight, it seemed like it was forced and happened mainly because the writers had no clue what to do with Julian, once his Alchemy part was resolved. And it also seems that they keep pairing Caitlin with random characters, first Hunter Zolomon (fake Jay Garrick), now Julian. Personally, I did not mind the pairing but honestly, it was forced and rushed. While personally I didn't mind the pairing at first, I do agree that it was forced and rushed.

    Cisco Ramon / Gypsy

    Just because they have the same powers? Really? They don't have really good chemistry and it felt forced, in my opinion, even though they look cute and hilarious at some times.

    Barry Allen / Iris West

    The relationship Barry Allen / Iris West shall be elaborated later below. In summary, Iris does not understand Barry at all and treats him badly, they are more like brother/sister rather than romantic couple and Iris is a bad influence on him.


    The problems with WestAllen

    I don't mind the relationship of Barry and Iris in the comic books but the way they execute it in Arrowverse and in The Flash overall is just perverse and I shall explain why. Overall, if the showrunners Berlanti, Kreisberg and Johns were gonna do pairing Barry/Iris like in comic books, they shouldn't have done it in a way that Barry and Iris had grown up together under the same roof and making Barry obsessed with Iris to the point of sabotaging any other relationships he's had with other girls.

    It reeks of incest:

    Barry and Iris were raised in the same house as brother and sister. In the Pilot, Iris even says they are basically siblings. Numerous people have referred to Joe and Barry, including Joe and Barry themselves, as father and son. When Iris and Barry first got together, Barry was uncomfortable kissing Iris in front of Joe because, as he put it, "He's your...our...he's Joe."

    It makes Barry look like a stalker:

    Barry seems obsessed with the idea of being with Iris, to the point he is so fixated on her that he sabotages all other possible relationships. He himself said, "Sometimes great possibilities are right in front of us and we don't see them because we choose not to." And there is nothing to really justify Barry's obsession because this isn't like someone who can't get over a failed relationship, it's an obsession. Frankly, Barry's behavior could even be grounds for a restraining order.

    Iris does not understand Barry:

    The show certainly tries to make it seem like Iris knows Barry better than anyone else, but it's all just a trick. If she did, she'd have realized long before Barry told her that he had feelings for her. If she knew Barry at all, she would've suspected long before finding our he was The Flash that there was something going on with him.

    It's clear from her actions from when Barry lost his memories and her anger at him over going into the Speed Force that she does not truly understand the burden Barry bears as the city's protector. She can walk away anytime she wants, Barry can't, not because of his powers, but its because of who he is as Barry Allen. Since she does not understand that, she does not understand who Barry really is.

    Iris treats Barry badly:

    Throughout Season 1, we see multiple occasions where Iris all but throws herself at Barry despite being with Eddie, then she uses being with Eddie as an excuse not to be with Barry, crushing poor Barry's heart. When Iris first finds out about Barry being the Flash, she raves at him and then blames him for Eddie being gone and then for Joe getting kidnapped by Grodd.

    When Iris finds out Barry only asked her to marry him to save her life, she calls off the engagement. This is understandable but she chose to do this after Wally was trapped in the Speed Force and Savitar has beaten the crap out of Barry.

    Barry is already in immense physical and emotional pain when this happens, he didn't need this on top of everything else, especially considering she tells him by showing off her ringless finger. After Barry comes back from the Speed Force, she brings him to counseling, when she knows Barry hates shrinks, and blames him for leaving her when she knows he had no choice and Barry can't defend himself, because he would expose his secret.

    Iris is not good for Barry:

    The moment Iris and Barry got together, Barry became this selfish jackass who only cared about Iris, everything else was a distant second. Then, he becomes someone who for the most part, bows to Iris' whims. Whichever way you look at it, Barry becomes the worst version of himself when he is with Iris.

    Barry cares about people, Iris doesn't:

    One of the fundamental aspects of being The Flash and Barry as a character is that he cares about people a lot. However, from Iris' actions, such as flirting with Barry in front of Linda and Eddie, kissing Barry while dating Eddie, dating Eddie and trying to keep it from Joe, blaming Joe and Barry for Eddie being taken by Thawne, keeping Wally a secret from Joe, making Barry go to Couples therapy when she know he hates shrinks, just to name a few, it is clear Iris has little consideration for other people. If she can't connect with Barry in that way, it makes you wonder what he even sees in her. Frankly, Thawne messing with the timeline the way he did must have really changed Iris' personality, because I don't think Barry would have any desire to be around Iris at all if he hadn't grown up with her.


    What I don't like about The Flash

  • Barry/Iris soap opera drama and Iris being quite bitchy to him, in the show Barry and Iris grew up together under one roof and this pairing screams "incest". If they were gonna do Barry/Iris pairing in the show, they should not have done it in a way that Barry and Iris were both raised under the same roof and it seems that Iris does not understand Barry as much as the showrunners want her to portay to
  • Iris being the "leader" of Team Flash is stupid
  • Iris putting herself in danger in 4x01 to get Barry to come to his senses and no one calls her out for that

  • Pairings in Supergirl

    I pretty much hate everyone, who has been a romantic option for Kara in the show so far. I don't dislike them as a character but I don't see how they could be together with Kara romantically.

    Kara Danvers / James Olsen

    If it was a different version of Jimmy, I think there might be a chance between them but the version of Jimmy Olsen in the show is NOWHERE near the version we know. The classic Jimmy is awkward geek. The version in the show is self-righteous bad-ass "vigilante" and can sometimes be arrogant "know-it-all" and he had a condescending attitude towards Lena Luthor, who is also Kara's best friend, at first. No. Freaking. Way.

    I know that the TV adaptations of comic books like to take their own spin on the characters but I don't like Supergirl version of Jimmy. I don't see how Kara could be with him romantically, even though they have good dynamic and chemistry overall. But, James is able to admit he was wrong and has a sense of morality.

    Kara Danvers / Winn Schott

    While I like Winn, sometimes he seems like Supergirl's Felicity and whiner. He's been Kara's best friend for years and out of nowhere, he tells her that he’s had feelings for her that he had bottled up for years and that strains their friendship for a while before they reconcile. No. Not OK at all.

    Kara Danvers / Mon-El

    What I didn't like about Mon-El was his arrogance being a Daxamite and Kara being Kryptonian and it hits Kara's nerves sometimes. And despite the fact that both of them were working it out and his personality has matured, it just doesn't sit well with me, due to Mon-El already being married to Imra.

    Kara Danvers / Lena Luthor

    Lena and Kara are best friends and they have good chemistry and I must admit, there is a sexual subtext there. However, it is very unlikely they will get together and honestly, I would find it, at best, very disturbing.

    I mean, there has been no hint so far that either of them are into women. But, if they ever got together, I wouldn't complain, assuming the showrunners won't screw it up.

    Alex Danvers / Maggie Sawyer

    Frankly, I think this pairing was pointless. Basically, the only reason they were together was to make Alex realize she is lesbian and even then, Maggie didn't last in the show for long as they broke off their engagement.

    James Olsen / Lena Luthor

    Well, honestly, I don't dislike this pairing. However, it could have been handled better, due to James' initial attitude towards Lena due to her being a Luthor and it seems like a forced pairing, mainly because the showrunners apparently don't know how to develop either characters further and make them more interesting.


    Why the Arrowverse has been an epic fail:

    Have you ever felt a deep emotional pain that wouldn't go away? Like you were watching someone you cared about be tortured until they were left begging for death? Well, that's what watching the Arrowverse has been like the last few years. What happened to it? It had so much potential, how could it go so wrong? Well, here I attempt to explain the mistakes that have led to a franchise that quiet simply cannot be saved.

    Bad casting:

    The best examples of this are Candice Patton as Iris West and Emily Bett Rickards as Felicity Smoak. I don't have anything against either actress but the producers should have gone with different people. She cannot bring the Iris West from the comics to life. And she has no chemistry with Grant Gustin and consider the show is built around a love story between Iris and Barry, it's clear she was the wrong choice.

    On the other hand, Emily Bett Rickards is just not a good actress, especially when it comes to emotional scenes. Every time she's on screen, it just feels like Felicity is acting, not like Felicity is a character. And she cannot do emotional scenes at all, so every scene that has to have Felicity become emotional is therefore ruined. When you compare her acting to the acting of Katie Cassidy and Willa Holland, there is simply no comparison. That's how good acting should look like.

    Bad treatment of male and female characters:

    This is most clear on Arrow and Supergirl. However, I am an open-minded person and I am willing to give people second chances.

    On Arrow, Laurel, Felicity, Diggle and Oliver are good examples of treating your character badly.

    Dinah Laurel Lance

    Laurel was a good character in Season 1 and parts of Season 3 and a great character in Season 4, despite having no actual storyline for that season. But in Season 2, she was a waste of a character. Her whole drug addiction arc where she a raving bitch to everyone, especially Oliver and Sara, made her very unlikable. And Season 3 really did nothing to fix this until the last quarter of it.

    In mid-Season 3-beginning of Season 4, Laurel became arrogant and self-righteous due to her taking the role of Black Canary and Sara's mantle mainly due to grief. She used Oliver saving Thea with Lazarus pit as an excuse to justify her bringing back Sara from the dead without knowing the consequences.

    Plus, (and I'm sorry about this, I love Laurel but I'm stating the facts here) a few weeks of boxing lessons with Ted Grant and a few weeks of training with Nyssa doesn't make her good enough to beat members of League of Assassins or H.I.V.E. and the Ghosts and she's gotten so high of a level of arrogance and self-righteousness, that she believed that just because she calls herself the Black Canary, she's automatically as good as Sara. * Laughs * , no, she's not. I'm sorry for saying this, I love Laurel but she's a plain example of how were the characters in Arrow mistreated.

    Felicity Megan Smoak

    Felicity, despite the bad acting of Emily Bett Rickards, was a very likeable character the first two seasons. Then Seasons 3-5 completely rewrote her character until she was a selfish, hypocritical, disrespectful person who whined and, in the long run, only seemed to care about herself and what she wanted and had no time for what anyone else wanted. Oliver throughout the first two seasons was a strong character who did what he thought was right regardless of what anyone else told him. He didn't take anyone's crap and went to do what he had to in order to protect his city.

    But in Season 3, in moments where he would previously call someone out, he would just take criticism from Felicity that was entirely unjustified. When Diggle was being a hypocrite, he would not say anything. It got a lot worse in Season 4 though. The entire team would disrespect him multiple times Felicity would undermine his authority as leader and be emotionally abusive to him. He was shown to be smart in Seasons 1-2, but Seasons 3-4 attempt to convince you that he is stupid. He just sits there and takes it when Felicity is just a bitch to him, showing that Oliver has no self-respect. Also, Felicity was a big hypocrite regarding keeping secrets from others. She was being a bitch to Oliver, when he was forced to keep a secret from her about having a son, when it was the only way Oliver could have a relationship with him, while she kept a secret from him that she was helping Team Arrow behind his back for five months between Seasons 3-4 and also about creating a super-virus that almost destroyed the entire city.

    John Diggle

    Throughout the series, Diggle was Oliver's right hand, best friend, moral compass and confidante. When it mattered, Diggle was able to set Oliver straight, when he didn't have his priorities straight or when he had a crisis of identity or needed some guidance. But in Seasons 3-4, he became an Olicity counselor, which is on the showrunners. However, his character started to bug me a lot, when Oliver had to kidnap Lyla in order to gain trust of Ra's al Ghul and the League of Assassins, Diggle straight-up told Oliver in his face to go to hell and criticized him for trusting Malcolm Merlyn more than his own team.

    Considering that Diggle knew exactly what the League of Assassins was capable of, he shouldn't have to take it out on Oliver. Though I could understand that Diggle was enraged and felt that Oliver crossed a line, when he kidnapped Lyla and left their daughter alone in their home, he wasn't able to get over it for 5-6 months and still treated Oliver like crap even the first three episodes of Season 4 until he came around, he kept a secret the connection between H.I.V.E. and Andy, when Oliver brought up that Damien Darhk leads the mentioned organization. Keeping this secret could have easily compromised the entire team. Also, Diggle can be a hypocrite, when he criticized Oliver about having a blind spot regarding his mother, when the same issue was with Diggle and Andy, which ultimately was what got Laurel killed.

    Another issue came up in Season 5, when he criticized his wife Lyla for keeping in lockup in black site Cayden James, a leader of hacktivist terrorist group with no due trial. Seriously?! An army veteran, whose wife is a director of a black ops government agency has a problem with that? There's no logic to this, especially, when Diggle helped Oliver lock up Digger Harkness and Slade Wilson in A.R.G.U.S. prison on Lian Yu.

    Then, in Season 6, another issue came with Oliver and Diggle in 6x17, when Diggle was upset that Oliver took away the Green Arrow mantle from him and he criticized Oliver for stretching himself so thin and into so many directions (being a mayor, a father and the Green Arrow, a husband etc.) that the people around him suffer and that Oliver's way of leadership causes him to alienate everyone close to him, when Oliver did the best he could in a bad situation. And Diggle crossed one hell of a line, when he accused Oliver of leaving a trail of bodies everywhere he goes and that Oliver is to blame for Samantha's death because of a bad decision Oliver made.

    Malcolm Merlyn

    In Season 1, he was portrayed as classic textbook, delusional, megalomaniacal psychopath. Then, in Season 2, he seemed to show some level of remorse and love, when he saved Thea. But, in Season 3, his psychopathy and insanity is proven again, when he drugged Thea and manipulates her into killing Sara and leverage Oliver into fighting Ra's al Ghul. It was understandable that Oliver needed Malcolm's help to beat Ra's, since Malcolm knew the League of Assassins better than anyone BUT what bugs me was the way he was showing his “love”, when a maniac like Malcolm is incapable of true love.

    And, what completely pisses me off is that after everything that Malcolm had put Oliver through, Oliver lets him become the next Ra's al Ghul and leader of the League of Assassins. Malcolm put a bomb on Queen's Gambit, he had Oliver's father killed and he manipulated Thea into killing Sara. That's just stupid on so many levels, Oliver should have killed him, when the thing with the League was over. Also, Malcolm being the new leader of the LoA seemed promising but nothing interesting in regards to the League happened in Season 4, asides from the League Civil War with Nyssa and Malcolm letting Laurel and Thea resurrect Sara. The plot with Malcolm being the leader of LoA was so promising and the showrunners wasted it.

    And in 5x22-23, Malcolm returned to help Oliver save Thea, mainly because he still loves his own daughter. On one hand, I think that Malcolm's a complex character and in his own way he means well but on the other hand, he was responsible for death of hundreds of people, including his own son and forced Thea into the darkness by having her kill Sara. Malcolm should have died at the end of Season 3, Oliver giving him the ring of the Demon makes no sense at all and his redemption arc was a load of crap, since Malcolm is in my opinion an irredeemable psychopath.

    Roy William Harper Jr.

    In comic books, Roy is Oliver's sidekick and they have mentor-protégé relationship, just like with Bruce Wayne and Dick Grayson. In the show, Roy was introduced as Thea's boyfriend on whom Oliver had to keep a close eye on and eventually he grew fond of him. Roy at first initially disliked Oliver, since he considered Thea another trust fund brat and by extension Oliver too but after Oliver saved his life as the Hood and put him under his wings, when Roy was dosed with Mirakuru, Roy looked up to Oliver and eventually, by the end of Season 2, Roy became Oliver's sidekick, just like in canon and he and Thea clearly fell in love with each other.

    However, what bugs me is that they wasted a lot of potential on the character, since his role as Arsenal lasted just one season as Colton Haynes had to leave the show due to health issues and end of his contract, which is pity and they never properly explained the character's backstory, all we know is that he grew up on the streets. As much as I appreciate him returning in Season 7, considering how Arrow has been going down, I'm afraid that despite the fact that having Roy Harper back and the change of showrunners might be a major improvement of the show, I'm not building my hopes up in regards to the show.

    Oliver Jonas Queen

    What bothers me is that Oliver lost his self-respect around Felicity, who treated him like shit and emotionally abused him throughout Season 4. The biggest examples are her lashing out on him over the comms at 4x06 and 4x15, when she broke up with him because he didn't tell her about William.

    In Season 5 there was a "confession" that he likes killing. Well, if it's true, then that means that Oliver is a psychopath and it is completely out of his character. In 1x03, Oliver told Floyd Lawton (Deadshot) that he kills for a good of others and in 1x08, he told Helena Bertinelli (Huntress) that he kills only when it is absolutely necessary. None of this makes any sense. If Oliver liked killing, he would have killed everyone he has faced and his body count would have been to hundreds at this point. Oliver killed only when he had no other option left, so this confession is in my opinion total bullshit.

    Marginalizing Oliver's fighting skills as they see fit to the plot:

    Also, Seasons 1-2 showed that Oliver was basically one-man army and in Season 4 he is overpowered by an ordinary thug like Lonnie Machin? That’s just stupid. Also, the same issue is in Season 5 with Tobias Church, although I’ll give the show a benefit of doubt, since Church was bigger and more muscular than most people Oliver has faced. The same issue is in Season 6 with Oliver Queen fighting Ricardo Diaz. I'll again give the show benefit of the doubt in this case. Diaz had a rough childhood and had to survive in harsh terms, so I can see him hold his own against Oliver but Diaz almost wiped the floor with him in one-on-one fight and when Oliver almost defeated Diaz, he cheated by using a knife and Oliver was beaten but not before Oliver did a number on him too. But come on, Oliver is able to withstand a lot more than that.

    The same thing about marginalizing the fighting skills could be said about Nyssa al Ghul, who effortlessly beat Malcolm in Season 3, yet she was unable to come to as close as a killing blow, when sparring with Malcolm in Season 4 and she needed Oliver’s help in defeating him and depose him of the title of Ra’s al Ghul. Malcolm himself saw Nyssa train when she was a child and she’s the daughter of Ra’s, yet she is unable to beat him in Season 4? This is so illogical and insulting towards Nyssa.

    Portraying Oliver Queen as the ultimate bad guy of Arrow:

    Also, what I don’t like is how the showrunners seem to constantly portray Oliver as the main villain of his own show. Slade blaming Oliver for Shado’s death and tormenting him for it, I can understand that due to the Mirakuru driving Slade mad.

    In Season 3, however, Felicity was totally disrespectful towards Oliver because of his allegiance with Malcolm. Oliver needed Malcolm’s help, since Malcolm knew the League of Assassins better than anyone else, yet Felicity kept protesting at every single turn. Diggle basically told Oliver to go screw himself because Oliver kidnapped Lyla and left their daughter alone in order to gain Ra’s trust and was still a jerk about it even at the beginning of Season 4. Between Season 3-4, Diggle had more than enough time to understand and forgive Oliver, since Oliver was undercover and Diggle knew exactly what was the League of Assassins capable of, so what Oliver did was in my opinion a necessary evil.

    Felicity broke up with Oliver in Season 4 because Oliver did not consult with her sending William away, when Felicity has no right at all to decide about William’s life.

    In Season 5, Adrian Chase (Prometheus) forced Oliver to “confess” that he enjoys killing and as I have mentioned before, this contradicts with everything that has happened in the show.

    In Season 6, Oliver was spying on Curtis, Rene and Dinah, since one of them was about to testify against him as the Green Arrow and they all left the team, feeling betrayed, when Oliver had valid reasons.

    Oliver had a choice between saving Vigilante (Vincent Sobel) and stopping Cayden James’ plan. Oliver chose the latter, since saving Vince would mean walking into a trap, resulting in Vince’s death at the hands of Black Siren and Dinah Drake blamed Oliver for it, when it was a choice between the entire city and one man, who also had a healing factor. What would anyone else have done at Oliver’s place? I get she's mad at Oliver because he was in his way responsible for her lover's death but come on, Curtis and Rene siding with her on that?

    Then there’s the whole “making Black Siren return the money she stole”. Oliver might have had a chance to get through to her but Dinah, Curtis and Rene almost killed Black Siren and beat the living crap out of Quentin, a 40-year old man with a heart condition, and Oliver was forced to beat up Rene, causing for his injuries from 6x01 to reopen. Curtis and Dinah were mad at Oliver, when Oliver was holding back the whole time and he gave EVERY CHANCE for Rene to stand down.

    Then there’s argument between Oliver and Diggle and being the Green Arrow in 6x17. Like I mentioned earlier, Diggle accused Oliver of causing people around him to suffer and complaining that he took away from Diggle the mantle of the G.A.

    Supergirl is also a good example of this, all their male characters get treated horribly.

    James was not very likable in Season 1, but in Season 2 he becomes a jerk whose storyline can be summed up as "I don't feel important, so I'm gonna become a superhero for...reasons." and is condescending towards Lena Luthor, who is trying to redeem her family name and both of them are Kara's best friends. In Season 1, Winn reveals he has feelings for Kara, which puts a strain on their friendship. The following episode, Kara rants to Alex about it, as though it is Winn's fault he has these feelings. Martian Manhunter and Superman are constantly made to look inferior to Kara. Mon-El was an interesting character the first few episodes until the writers turned him into a sexist douche when he had not shown any signs of that prior.

    Using the shows to push a political agenda:

    Read Supergirl. The entire show is basically to push a feminist agenda on the viewers. Cat Grant, in Season 2, even gives a speech about how much better than men women are. In Season 2, the Cadmus plot was very interesting. Then it becomes a platform to basically tell impressionable young minds that illegal immigration is okay and if anyone says otherwise, they are evil. Then there's Alex, who throughout Season 2 began developing feelings for Maggie and eventually realize that she is lesbian, which was an unnecessary sublot of the entire Season 2 of Supergirl.

    But Arrow has done this to, as 5x13 was basically an episode done to simply push a pro-gun control agenda. In Season 2 of Legends of Tomorrow, we are constantly reminded of the fact that Sara is attracted to women, if not by her expressing an interest in one, then by one of the other characters saying something about it. It's like they think we're stupid and forgot but, more likely, the writers just want to talk about how great it is that she's bisexual because they did the same thing with Curtis being gay in Season 5 of Arrow. I am not a homophobic person but it annoys me that they keep reminding us of same-sex attractions.

    Turning the shows into a soap opera:

    Arrow is the best example of this. After episode 3x12, the writer's simply started focusing less on plot and more on romantic relationships, the relationship between Oliver and Felicity in particular. This continued in Season 4, where Olicity, their ship name, is the storyline that got the most focus. The same thing happened in Season 3 of The Flash, Iris and Barry's relationship is the main storyline.

    Again in Legends of Tomorrow Season 1, the relationship between Ray and Kendra, as well as the triangle with Carter, started getting too much focus. Supergirl Season 2, the relationships between Kara and Mon-El and Alex and Maggie basically took over the show. If viewers wanted to watch a show about romance, they would watch a soap opera but they aren't, they're watching a show that is supposed to be about superheroes being heroes, not about the trials of their romantic lives.

  • Characters in Dragon Age: Origins and Pairings:

    Alistair Theirin

    Templar warrior. Alistair was raised as bastard son of King Maric of Ferelden. The reason he wasn't acknowledged as an heir was mainly due to politics, so Maric sent him off to Arl Eamon of Redcliffe and later, he trained to be a templar. However, Alistair was disillusioned by this life before Duncan, Commander of the Grey, conscripted him into the Grey Wardens. Duncan became some sort of a father figure to Alistair and Alistair looked up to him.

    Alistair is ashamed of his origins as bastard son and does not initially like the idea of being the King of Ferelden, this can however be changed, depending on the player's choices in the game as the player has a choice to develop a friendly relationship with Alistair and eventually persuade him that being the King is not such a bad idea at all and Alistar may become more open to the possibility and is more eager to learn the art of governing.

    Alistair has a sense of humor as well and likes to crack jokes often but when it comes down to it, he is serious and has mind of honorable warrior and strategist with a chevalier attitude towards women. As a romance option for Female Warden, I think he is a suitable choice.

    As for outcomes of the game, personally, I would prefer either if Alistair remained Warden or IF Alistair becomes the King of Ferelden, then that would be with Anora as Queen and the Female Warden, his romance companion as mistress. Frankly, I don't like the idea of TWO Grey Wardens governing at once and Anora is more experienced politician and could teach Alistair the art of governing.

    Leliana

    Rogue bard. Leliana used to be an Orlesian bard and an assassin for hire. She was a daughter of a servant of an Orlesian noble, who became interested in Fereldan stories, ballads and songs that she had learnt about from servants and tutors. When Leliana was sixteen, she met Marjolaine, a wealthy widow and patroness of the arts. Fascinated by Marjolaine's world and daring, the two of them became close frients, Marjolaine taught Leliana how to hunt and the way of the bard. "Bard" in DA is not a typical poet and artist as you might imagine, in DA, bards are minstrels but also rogues trained in ways of espionage, sabotage, subterfuge and assassination.

    In the following years, Leliana and Marjolaine became a group of mercenaries and eventually, Leliana fell in love with Marjolaine. However, all of that changed, when Marjolaine helped her with a job that was leading to treason to Fereldan, as Leliana discovered the true nature of the job, Marjolaine mortally wounded her, betrayed her and left her to die. Leliana barely made it out and had some satisfaction and vindication in killing one of the people involved in the plot. However, she never sought out Marjolaine for revenge and instead ran into Chantry in Lothering, where she sought refuge in the following years and became a lay sister, having found faith.

    When Leliana was first introduced to the Warden in the game, she is portrayed to be mentally unstable, as she believed that she was meant to help the Warden in his/her quest due to Leliana's vision granted by the Maker. Leliana proved herself to believe in the Maker and tried to see good in people, such as assassin Zevran Aranai, who was assigned to kill the Warden (I shall discuss him further later).

    Depending on interactions with her, Leliana is portrayed to be emotional person as she is a bard and storyteller and she likes to say love stories and she approves of good deeds. She is firm in her faith in the Maker.

    When Marjolaine returned and Leliana wanted to settle old scores with her former lover, there was a choice between letting Marjolaine go or killing her, ending the vendetta once and for all. After Marjolaine's death, Leliana seemed to be visibly shaken and also having crisis of faith, not sure if her belief in the Maker was just her imagination. The Warden may encourage her that she's not slipping and she needs to accept who she is. As the story progress, they clearly fall in love with each other.

    Alistair and Leliana are the only two viable romantic options I approve of in Dragon Age: Origins.

    Morrigan

    An apostate shapeshifter mage with pragmatic attitude of "survival of the fittest". I like her as a character but as a romance option, not that I do not approve at all but a sane person would not get along well with her pessimistic/realistic attitude.

    However, she is shown in Dragon Age: Origins and in Dragon Age: Inquisition to have a soft side as well. Overall, as a character I like her but as a romance option, it's not my preference.

    Zevran Aranai

    An elven rogue assassin forced into this life in childhood and a son of a prostitute and a woodcutter, orphaned in childhood. Tricked into killing a fellow assassin and a good friend, Rinna, by another fellow assassin and friend, Taliesen. The trio was romantically involved. When assigned by Loghain on a task to assassinate the Warden, Zevran was ready to die, disillusioned by his assassin life, however, he was eager to redeem himself by joining the Warden's quest. Zevran is shown to have a sense of humor and openly flirts with others for fun. He does not necessarily pursuit a serious relationship and can be an enjoyable companion. As a romance option, not that I mind him but he's more fun as a friend.

    Sten

    Cold, emotionless behemoth Qunari warrior. Has a sense of honor and is practical, seeing that helping others is a waste of time and would rather focus on the task. However, under this demeanor is a man, trying to redeem his honor after he lost his sword and can be proven to be a loyal and true companion, once the Warden has found it.

    Wynne

    Mother-like character and an old mage, who offers wisdom and advice. I like her character.

    Cullen Rutherford

    Templar knight, who has appeared in all three video games so far. In Dragon Age: Origins, he was tormented by blood mages and tortured, causing for him to dislike mages and was willing to wipe out the entire Circle Tower of Magi full of mages to prevent the risk of them being possessed by demons. I don't exactly blame him.

    Oghren

    Dwarf berserker warrior. All I can say is there's a load of fun with this character. If you are not familiar with Dragon Age but are familiar with Lord of the Rings, just imagine Gimli.

    Shale

    Golem who's trying to restore her true form. I can't honestly say anything interesting about her.

    Loghain Mac Tir

    A master strategist, warrior, war hero, who also left his king, Cailan to die, mainly because the king went on with a plan that would, strategically speaking, be suicide. Loghain then took over the rule over Ferelden, despite his own daughter Anora being the Queen and Cailan's widow, allowing elves in the Alienage to be sold to slavery to fund the civil war he had caused, poisoned Arl Eamon, who potentially could have set his plans back, and even imprisoned his own daughter, the Queen, when she realized his insanity.

    However, if decided by the Warden, Loghain can be conscripted into the Grey Wardens and depending on the interactions with him, he shows true remorse and eagerness to earn forgiveness and redeem himself and later, he becomes a truly honorable companion, who is willing to diligently serve as the Warden as a penance for his sins.

    On one hand, I think he does deserve to die but on the other hand, I am a supporter of redemption and Loghain is truly willing to make up for his past sins.

    Nathaniel Howe

    Skilled rogue hunter archer. Son of Rendon Howe, Loghain's right hand, who slaughtered an entire noble house, save for two children. He's lost everything and his family became pariahs and he is willing to redeem his family name in service of Grey Wardens. An entire family should not have to suffer for sins of one and I like his character.

    What I would like to see is a romance between Nathaniel Howe, son of the man responsible for wiping out almost an entire House Cousland, save for Fergus and Cousland Warden, who would be a female. I mean, Rendon Howe was Bryce Cousland's friend before betraying him and Nathaniel then became a pariah because of his father's sins and Female Cousland would be trying to restore her family's glory, while attempting not to hate Nathaniel for his father's crimes. You have to admit that the romance between them would be an interesting concept and I wish the game had exploited that.

    Anders

    Mage healer. In Dragon Age: Origins, he was an apostate mage with cute sense of humor and I liked him but eventually I started to hate him in Dragon Age 2 and I shall explain why later below in Dragon Age 2 section of my bio.

    Spirit of Justice

    Creepy character, who sees things in absolute and black and white.

    Sigrun

    Casteless dwarven warrior, member of Legion of the Dead. Wants to honor her duty to the group by fighting the darkspawn and dying in the good fight. All I can say is that's crazy.

    Velanna

    An elven mage, who was willing to kill innocent humans in her misguided belief they had abducted her sister, when the humans were framed. And she wanted to become a Grey Warden, only to hunt down the darkspawn, who were truly responsible for her sister's missing. "Crazy" got a new level with this one, I say.


    Preferred Romances in Dragon Age: Origins:

  • Male Warden / Leliana or Female Warden / Leliana (Leliana is my favorite romance option)
  • Female Warden / Alistair
  • Female Warden Cousland / Nathaniel Howe (pairing I would like to see happen, even though no characters in Dragon Age: Origins - Awakening are a romance option)

  • Characters in Dragon Age 2 and Pairings:

    Varric Tethras

    Surface dwarf, merchant, writer and storyteller, who likes to solve things diplomatically but is not shy of outright lies and blackmail, if necessary but tries to avoid aggresivness if possible and would prefer to talk his way out of trouble. Has a trademark crossbow named “Bianca”, after his sister. Occassionally jokes and instead of using names, he gives his companions nicknames, such as "Daisy" for Merrill, "Broody" for Fenris, "Sunshine" for Bethany etc. Beneath this thug-like exterior however hides a family man, who cares about his own brother, despite the fact that he had lost his mind and betrayed him and left him to die, willing to get him help in an asylum. Perfect bromance companion.

    Bethany Hawke

    Hawke's (Main character's) younger sister and Carver's fraternal twin. An apostate mage on the run from the Circle, who wants to only protect her family and keep a low profile, trying hard not to be hunted down by Templars. Also has a sense of morality and honor as she generally approves of acts of kindness, siding with family, protecting loved ones. She restrains herself from using forbidden blood magic and communing with demons. Very kind character and good sister. My preferred sibling.

    As a Circle Mage, she's just a victim. As a Grey Warden, she tries to help others as much as she can within her power.

    Carver Hawke

    Hawke's (Main character's) younger brother and Bethany's fraternal twin. Prideful, aggresive warrior with an inferiority complex, who's trying to prove himself and approves of things that would help family. However, he does not like "selfless" acts, with the exception of family, as I have mentioned, such as helping others without reward but gladly helps fellow Fereldan refugees or other actions that would appeal his own pride. Also, Carver would prefer siding with Chantry, rather than mages, who are on the run and in hiding but is not completely without reason and is able to discern the right choice from wrong.

    As a Templar, he becomes a pompous ass with a high level of arrogance and superiority. As a Grey Warden, he finds a sense of duty he had been looking for alongside with sense of honor and understands better the concept of selflessness and is more eager to help others, gaining humility. Not my favorite sibling but I can understand him.

    Aveline Vallen

    Dutiful soldier, warrior, kind, with a sense of honor and morality, valuing friendship and family. A very enjoyable companion.

    Anders

    Now, I liked Anders in Dragon Age: Origins - Awakening, mainly because of his sense of humor. Anders then left the Wardens, disillusioned with the fight against the darkspawn. However, in Dragon Age 2, he was possessed by Spirit of Justice and the spirit's nature was warped by Anders' rage towards the Templars' mistreatment of mages and Anders became a zealot, who, frustrated by how Templars were abusing their power and oppressing the mages, decided to take things into his own hands, trying to instigate a mage rebellion and blew up the Chantry, killing hundreds of people, including Grand Cleric and inevitably triggering the holy war of Templars against Mages. Nothing can justify what he's done, he deserved to die.

    Merrill

    Elven mage, stuck in the past, trying to restore a broken "possessed" mirror, with forbidden blood magic, communicating with demons. I like her dorky personality but how can someone like her, considering the insanity of her actions?

    Isabela

    Rogue, pirate thief and scoundrel, who likes fun, freedom, jokes and sarcasm. Doesn't mind a little selfishness, if she or someone can gain at least a bit out of something but is annoyed by "selfless" deeds. Flirty, slutty, likes to have sex with no committment at all preferably but is opened to the concept of love and, while she can be very selfish, she is able to admit her faults and realize the consequences of her actions and is willing to make things right with sincere remorse and help her friends, if the player interacted well with her. Considering she is willing to admit she is wrong, what's not to like about her?

    Sebastian Vael

    Talented archer rogue. Religious man and devout Andrastian, who maybe far too much talks about it but his lectures of religion can have hidden wisdom. All I would want is that he didn't talk about it as often as he does in the game and I would like him more.

    Fenris

    An amnesiac slave, elven warrior fugitive on the run from a mage magister, who bullied him and treated him as a pet. This caused him to have general dislike of mages but is not completely blind and realizes that there are mages, who have good intentions with their powers but he believes that eventually, all mages succumb to the temptation of abuse of power they wield. Depending on the player's actions, he strongly reconsiders his opinions about mages.

    Afraid of commitment, mainly because after he had become a slave, all his memories of previous life were erased. When having sex with Hawke, all Fenris' memories of his past life came flooding at once before fading away again and he left cowardly, leaving Hawke alone in bed. He never forgave himself for it and would do anything to take it back, since for him, and I quote: "Nothing could be worse for me than thought of living without you.".

    I prefer him as a romance option, mainly for Female Mage Hawke, since I think it has sense of irony and it helps Fenris realize that there are good mages after all. Again, quoting Fenris: "For every mage such as you, there are dozen more too weak to handle their power. Them I fear. As should anyone else."

    Tallis

    Elven assassin rogue, who likes to quip and is geeky and is portrayed by one of my favorite actresses, the Queen of Geeks, Felicia Day. One of my favorite characters. I like the fling the main character may have with her and I wish there had been an actual romance with her.

    Cullen Rutherford

    Templar knight, who has appeared in all three video games so far. In Dragon Age: Origins, he was tormented by blood mages and tortured, causing for him to dislike mages and was willing to wipe out the entire Circle Tower of Magi full of mages to prevent the risk of them being possessed by demons. I don't exactly blame him.

    In Dragon Age 2, he becomes the second-in-command of Knight-Commander Meredith of Templar Order of Kirkwall, overseeing Kirkwall's Circle of Magi as Knight-Captain. Due to his traumatic experience with the mages in Dragon Age: Origins, he becomes harsher on mages than before. However, he still believes that Templar Order should protect the population from magic but also to protect the mages that the templars are sworn to oversee. I would be intrigued if in Dragon Age 2 he was a romance option for Female Hawke.

    He becomes more and more disillusioned by the harsh treatment the mages get from the Templars, eventually causing for him to turn against Knight-Commander Meredith, when she went insane and was going to wipe out the entire Circle, when Anders, who was an apostate mage and was never part of Kirkwall's Circle, destroyed the Chantry, with Grand Cleric and hundreds of people inside.


    Preferred Romances in Dragon Age 2

  • Male Hawke / Isabela or Female Hawke / Isabela
  • Female Hawke / Fenris, preferably Female Mage Hawke / Fenris, since that particular type with Fenris is my favorite pairing
  • What I would like to see is Female Mage Hawke / Cullen pairing, even though it cannot happen in DA2
  • Male Hawke / Tallis or Female Hawke / Tallis

  • Characters in Dragon Age: Inquisition and Pairings:

    Cassandra Penthaghast

    Warrior, devout Andrastian, servant of the Chantry and the Seekers of the Truth, pious and driven by her belief in Andraste, the Maker and the Chantry, trying to restore order between Templars and Mages. Strong, militant, practical, moral, compassionate, honorable. Under her tough demeanor hides a soft personality. I like her character and I approve of her as potential romance for Male Inquisitor.

    Dorian Pavus

    Mage from Tevinter Imperium, who does not have the typical Tevinter arrogant and supremacist attitude regaring mages. He is witty, supportive of mages but is reasonable enough to stay away from blood magic. Good fellow.

    Gordon Blackwall (Thom Rainier)

    As a warrior, Thom Rainier was a mercenary and traitor, taking part in slaughtering a noble family and his comrades had no idea of his actions. He was sentenced to die, but he was conscripted to the Grey Wardens by Gordon Blackwall, a Warden-Constable but they were ambushed and Blackwall perished in the process. With no prove of being conscripted and feared that the Wardens would kill him and inspired by Blackwall's nobility and the cause of the Wardens, Rainier assumed Blackwall's identity and his status as a wandering Warden recruiter to honor his memory. He likes to help others in need and not fond of exiling, forceful conscripting or self-serving power-hungry tyrants.

    When a member of Rainier's crew, who had participated in the massacre of a noble family, was being executed, Blackwall stepped up and confessed and revealed his true identity. The Inquisitor has a choice either to let him rot in dungeon on allow him to continue serve the Inquisition to make up for what he has done and conscript him to the Wardens as he was supposed to.

    I like the concept of redemption and Rainier seems sincere in redeeming himself. As a romance option, Rainier is grown fond of Female Inquisitor but distances himself from her because he does not want her to fall in love with someone he's not and hurt her by letting her love a lie. It is possible to continue the relationship and start over, with no lies anymore. I like Rainier, since he sincerely regrets his sins and wants to redeem himself and the nature of the romance with Female Inquisitor intrigues me.

    Sera

    Impulsive elven rogue archer with childish personality, who likes to prank around. She can be funny, that's all I have to say.

    Cole

    Spirit rogue, who makes people forget things in order to "free them of pain", or makes them forget when it suits him. Has a mentality of a child and sees things simply. Help the helpless and hurt and punish those who have hurt people. Interesting fellow. Can turn more human with help.

    Iron Bull

    Mercenary qunari warrior and spy. A good friend, who likes drinking, battling and spending times with his comrades and would rather not leave anyone behind and has a sense of humor. Good companion but as a romance, I think it's like with Zevran.

    Leliana

    As spymaster, in Dragon Age: Inquisition, she became more cold and apathetic, due to crisis of faith after the death of Divine Justinia, who was her close friend. However, she may soften later and more or less return to her personality in Dragon Age: Origins.

    Josephine Montilyet

    Bisexual Antivan diplomat. Smart, charming woman, who cares about her family. No problem with her.

    Cullen Rutherford

    Templar knight, who has appeared in all three video games so far. In Dragon Age: Origins, he was tormented by blood mages and tortured, causing for him to dislike mages and was willing to wipe out the entire Circle Tower of Magi full of mages to prevent the risk of them being possessed by demons. I don't exactly blame him.

    In Dragon Age 2, he becomes the second-in-command of Knight-Commander Meredith of Templar Order of Kirkwall, overseeing Kirkwall's Circle of Magi as Knight-Captain. Due to his traumatic experience with the mages in Dragon Age: Origins, he becomes harsher on mages than before. However, he still believes that Templar Order should protect the population from magic but also to protect the mages that the templars are sworn to oversee. I would be intrigued if in Dragon Age 2 he was a romance option for Female Hawke.

    He becomes more and more disillusioned by the harsh treatment the mages get from the Templars, eventually causing for him to turn against Knight-Commander Meredith, when she went insane and was going to wipe out the entire Circle, when Anders, who was an apostate mage and was never part of Kirkwall's Circle, destroyed the Chantry, with Grand Cleric and hundreds of people inside.

    In Dragon Age: Inquisition, Cullen becomes the military commander of Inquistion, trying to restore order between Templar and Mages. When asked about his feelings about mages, he states that he has seen the suffering that magic can inflict and has treated mages with distrust because of it in the past - sometimes without cause.

    He admits that it was unworthy of him and says that he will try not to do so in the future. However, he still thinks that mages should be checked with safeguards to protect people - including the mages. Though he disagrees with the Templar Order's actions, he sympathizes with the Order's frustrations of their work taken for granted by most people.

    As a romance option, I would prefer a Female Mage Inquisitor for Cullen, since it seems fitting and this type could help him with his shaken faith with Templars and mages.

    Solas (Fen'harel - "Dread Wolf")

    Elven hedge mage. At first, I was intrigued by Solas. He loves the Fade and wants a better place for mages and elves. But it was then revealed that he was Fen'harel, the “Dread Wolf”, the elven god of betrayal, willing to let the entire world burn to restore the world of elves to former glory. I don't know whether he can be redeemed or not but there's no excuse for lying to his own companions and using the Inquisition as means to an end, since he was the one responsible for most of the mess that happened in the game.


    Preferred Romances in Dragon Age: Inquisition

  • Female Inquisitor / Blackwall (my favorite pairing)
  • Female Inquisitor / Iron Bull
  • Male Inquisitor / Cassandra
  • Female Inquisitor / Cullen, preferably Female Mage Inquisitor / Cullen

  • Characters in Mass Effect and Pairings:

    Ashley Williams

    Human soldier. Her grandfather was General forced to surrender himself to the turians, the first human soldier, that ever surrendered to the aliens, causing disgrace to the family name and due to that, his son, Ashley's father, wasn't able to get higher rank than Serviceman Third Class. Ashley had been working so hard to redeem her family name and work her way up as soldier, despite being denied a lot of opportunities, she performs well and her unit is eventually assigned on a mission, that however resulted in her entire squad being wiped out, with her being a sole survivor as she later struggles with survivor's guilt with Shepard, the main character, rescuing her.

    Ashley later joins the crew of Normandy, Shepard's ship but is wary of working with aliens, since her grandfather was the first human that ever surrendered himself to aliens, giving her a little xenophobic racist attitude towards aliens, which seems offensive to the character, in my opinion but I don’t exactly blame her. She loves her family and has three younger sisters she used to look after. Above all else, all she wants to prove herself and redeem her family's name. She's also a religious person, loves poetry and talking about family. Though she seems tough and aggresive, she can be respectful and sympathetic. She is not completely xenophobic, since she knows that humans and aliens need to cooperate but prefers if humans could be independent and had more chance to prove themselves and she is able to respect authority, when being assigned to squad of aliens and later, she learns to trust aliens in missions more.

    However, during the choice between saving either Kaidan or Ashley on Virmire mission, if chosen Ashley, this deepens her survivor's guilt but with Shepard's help she is able to come to terms with it and eventually, she accepts her alien comrades as good friends.

    I honestly grew fond of and warmed up to the character and I think that Ashley Williams is OTP for Male Shepard in the entire Mass Effect series. Even though she feels betrayed by believing that Shepard was dead for two years in ME2, she still loves Shepard and ME3, the story of Shepard and Ashley finding their way to each other is so well done and emotional. I love the romance between Male Shepard and Ashley, since it is very emotional and well done.

    Kaidan Alenko

    Loyal soldier and friend and companion. Kind of a boy scout. Not my romance preference for Female Shepard, since they have worked together for years and are more like close friends but as a bromance he's good.

    Liara T'Soni

    Asari scientist and archaeologist, who does not understand sometimes human idioms, making her social awkwardness just so sweet. Shy of intimacy at first but is able to gain special connection to Commander Shepard. However, as the series progress, she develops a darker personality and exterior, willing to break the law as information broker, though she still has her sense of morality and can show remorse over her actions. In ME3 she uses her resources as Shadow Broker to help in the war against Reapers. I would not mind her as romance option.

    Garrus Vakarian

    Former turian C-Sec officer (a cop), joining Shepard's mission to make things right. Skilled sniper. Bromance between him and Shepard is just awesome. Maybe the best friend Shepard has throughout the entire trilogy. As a romance option for Female Shepard, it just honestly doesn’t sit with me.

    Urdnot Wrex

    Krogan mercenary warrior, trying to restore his people to former glory. If interacted well with, a loyal and good friend and comrade.

    Tali'Zorah

    Quarian tech genius and a geek. Potential romance for Male Shepard but not my preference, since Tali is in my opinion more like a little sister.

    Miranda Lawson

    Human. Ice Queen, female clone genetically engineered from DNA of Henry Lawson, to be a "perfect woman", from IQ to physical attributes, giving her arrogant attitude at the start. Despite her seemingly perfect traits, she had a strict personal lifestyle from her "father", a wealthy megalomaniac obsessed with preserving his "legacy" and "dynasty". This lack of affection may be the cause of her "Ice Queen" attitude.

    She is later shown to be insecure and care about her "sister" Oriana, another clone and becomes disillusioned with Cerberus, a pro-human extremist group, due to rising immorality, or even amorality of their actions, joining Shepard's cause. Potential romance for Male Shepard. She is cautious of sexual tension due to her insecurity and perfect body, yet if Shepard is insistent, she grows to develop an affection and eventually fall in love. I like how the romance goes down between her and Male Shepard but I would rather the romance with Ashley.

    Jacob Taylor

    Ex-Alliance soldier disillusioned with bureaucraucy, joining with Cerberus but later deserting the group for the same reasons as Miranda. Good fellow soldier. Would not mind him as a romance option for Female Shepard.

    Thane Krios

    Drell. A former assassin, dying from a terminal disease, on a path to redemption and trying to make peace with his son, with whom he had cut ties, alongside with wife. A good character. Interesting romance with Female Shepard but since he's dying, it ends only in tragedy.

    Mordin Solus

    Salarian doctor. Tries to help krogans with curing virophage and is fond of humans. Likes to help other species if he can. Often focused on scientific perspective but can be a funny fellow.

    Grunt

    Krogan super-soldier with mentality of a child. Sometimes get himself in hilarious situations.

    Jack

    Female human biotic, experimented on and tortured by Cerberus, powerful biotic with strong language. Eventually grows to trust others and grow fond of people, if insistent enough. Potential romance option for Male Shepard. I like how she later becomes more trusting and willing to let someone in.

    Kasumi Goto

    Master thief, infiltrator, tech and smart-ass geek with mouthful of wisecracks and witticisms. What's not to like about her?

    Zaeed Massani

    Feared, impulsive bounty hunter on quest for revenge but is able to set aside petty grudges for the sake of the mission.

    Javik

    Prothean. Last living member of a once proud supremacy civilization. At first arrogant and acts superior, due to being once a member of large empire but grows to understand current customs and concept of diplomacy and cooperation better and finds humility, trying to fight for others and honor the legacy of his people.

    James Vega

    Alliance soldier, boy scout and likes to make cracks. Good fellow.

    Samantha Traynor

    Comms expert on Normandy with lesbian sexual orientation from London. Likes to play chess and other strategic games. Potential romance option for Female Shepard but for me it feels too sudden to happen, even though it has its funny moments.

    Jeff "Joker" Moreau

    Normandy pilot, who's been there for Shepard throughout the entire game saga and likes to make cracks and quips. What's not to like about him?

    EDI

    An A.I. with female voice, that develops human feelings and learns to "be alive and truly human". I like the character development throughout the trilogy.

    David Anderson

    Captain, later Councilor of Humans, then Admiral of Alliance. Father figure to Shepard.

    Donnel Udina

    Human diplomat, ruthless politician and power-hungry, self-serving jerk. If you are familiar with Mass Effect games, I don't need to explain any further.
