No Island AU is a trope in Arrow fandom. Fanworks (mainly fanfiction) where Oliver Queen was never stranded on the Lian Yu ("Purgatory") island. This results in an alternate universe where Oliver is "normal" and did not become The Arrow/The Hood, usually with the same personality he had Pre-Island.
