    Summary

    "If Ruby and Diana are asking, then Anne has no idea why the sight of the error sign on her University's login has her giddy. Maybe she's a masochist and likes turning in all of her assignments late.

    If her own curiosity is asking, it's probably because the student tech support she keeps getting assigned to from the school's IT help-chat might be her soulmate, even though she has no earthly clue who he is."

    Anne and Gilbert do not see eye to eye. All they need is to see each other from a new perspective.

    Summary

    "Wait." Gilbert advanced half a step. Anne froze as he raised his hand to her face, not quite touching her, but close enough that she could feel his warmth. "You… have paint on your face."
    -------------
    Answering the question of why, oh WHY in 3x07 didn't Gilbert at least tell Anne she had paint on her face? How might things (okay, how might the porch scene in particular, let's be honest) have changed if he had?

    Summary

    The Society is a strict place to be.

    Since the Omniscient took power they’ve proven to everyone that all human activity can be boiled down to science. All processes and movements are merely chemical reactions to be solved and reverse engineered. The human man is worth so much more, if only the soul is properly controlled. There is no space for feelings in The Society. Love is preordained. Your mate found by an algorithm and your activities strictly monitored by rules and regulations.

    Even the Omniscient and their Society can’t deny the bubble of ancient magic within the roots of their civilization. And when Felicity Smoak finds a tattoo on her skin, the like of which she’s only heard of in legend, hours after meeting the mysterious, guarded Oliver Queen, she finds herself in for one hell of a ride.

    Summary

    It was in the middle of his internship that Gilbert received the news. With his usual straightforwardness and coldness, his main professor, Doctor Frances, came into his class one morning with an envelope into his hands.

    “Class, I’m sorry to interrupt your lesson, but I have some important pieces of information. As you may know, the conflicts at the border of Gebson Bay, in the Easter part of Canada, are getting worse, and there is a huge lack of paramedics. The University of Toronto has been demanded to send its best trainees, to help the paramedics who are already there” he said, his voice not changing its tone once. He then started listing the names of the students who had been chosen, and when Gilbert heard his last name his heart dropped. In that very moment, he didn’t think of the risk he would have had to face, of the possibilities of not making it, of the idea of getting hurt.

    He thought about Anne.

    For a split of a second, a flash of light, he imagined her face as he told her he had to go away for God knew how long. He saw her usual sparkly eyes losing their light, and her gentle smile dropping. He didn’t want to be the source of her pain, not when she had always been the source of his life.

    Summary

    "During the day, I belong to worldly responsibilities; chores, work, all of my obligations. At night, I belong to my dreamland, to sleep. But here, at this moment in time, I belong to myself and well—to you."  

    Anne and Gilbert spend some quality time in the last weeks before marriage.
