Barry/Felicity is a het pairing of Felicity Smoak and Barry Allen from the Arrow and The Flash fandoms.


Barry and Felicity first meet each other[1] when Barry visits QC to talk with Oliver Queen about what he found at a crime scene. Both show interest in each other. They later dance together at Queen's party. Felicity later trusts him with Oliver's secret, in order to save Oliver's life. Barry then makes a mask for Oliver to wear as the Arrow.[2] He calls Felicity and asks her on a date for whenever she wants to move on, however he gets hit with lightening and put into a coma. Felicity visits him in Central City.[3]


Barry/Felicity pairing immediately appeared in the Arrow fandom after their first meeting and Barry's first appearance,[1] although it never quite took off like Oliver/Felicity did when Felicity first appeared on Arrow; probably since the episode confirmed that Oliver/Felicity had feelings for each other and that Barry/Iris did as well (or at least Barry does). However, fans of the series and other pairings are generally positive towards a relationship between Barry and Felicity. The pairing often appears as a secondary pairing, or the beginning pairing which eventually leads to another.

Barry/Felicity can mainly be found on Tumblr and Youtube with some works posted at AO3 and FFN.
