Disclaimer: I claim no ownership over these characters. I am merely borrowing them (and some of their words) from Greg Berlanti, Marc Guggenheim, and Andrew Kreisberg.
Betas: Big huge thank you to angelskuuipo for being the best sounding board and hand holder I could ask for. You really helped me when I was struggling with re-writing some of these chapters and this story wouldn't be what it is without your help. Thanks also to apckrfan for lending a second set of eyes.
Author's Note 1: Title from the song "The Feeling" by Justin Bieber (featuring Halsey).
Author's Note 2: This story got away from me a bit. It started with the opening scene in my head and when I wrote what became the first half of the first chapter, I thought that was it. I'd gotten the scene out of my head. Then Tommy decided that he would, reluctantly, join the team and get involved in the rest of the season's storylines he wasn't originally a part of. I figured that this could also be my chance to write a Smoaking Billionaires story, which I've wanted to try. Only the boys decided the focus should be on them since there aren't a lot of long Tommy/Oliver fics out there (at least that I have been able to find). So while there is some threesome interaction, it is not the focus of this story. I hope you enjoy the ride as much as I've enjoyed writing it.

Chapter 1
Author's Note: Takes place during 1x19 (Unfinished Business) after The Count is dealt with, but before Tommy can quit.

The door reverberated as it bounced off the wall behind it when it was thrown open into Tommy's office. He startled from the spot behind his desk, head jerking up, not just from the door slamming open but because of the woman who came storming in.

"What did you do to my babies?" she demanded.

Stock: Writing Cards

Holiday Card Sign-Up

If anyone would like a holiday card from me, please leave your full address in a (screened) comment. Or, you can email it to dragonydreams at with a subject line of Holiday Card.

I am happy to send cards internationally, so don't let that stop you from requesting one. I usually send non-holiday-specific cards as I'm Jewish and a lot of my friends don't celebrate Christmas either, but I do have a bunch that say Christmas, so let me know if you have a preference.

If I missed anyone's sign-ups, please leave me a link to it, because I love receiving cards almost as much as I love sending them. Or if I've given you my address in the past, just know that I'd love one (I haven't moved in 10+ years, so it's still my current address).

Neil Gaiman - Writing Quote

Neil Gaiman Virgin

I found out over the weekend that my brother's girlfriend has never read any Neil Gaiman books. I must remedy that. (Good thing I still didn't have a holiday present for her.)

I first read Stardust at a friend's instance and then didn't read anything for a long time until rileysaplank sent me Neverwhere. Then I devoured the rest of his books. What do you think would be a good introductory book?

She's into Stargate SG-1, Firefly and Doctor Who.
