What happens in Russia, stays in Russia
Felicity Smoak watched Oliver Queen make an idiot out of himself one more time with another woman that was not the right one for him. Or at least, a woman that she was convinced was not the right one for him. She tried her best to forget what happened with him and Isabel in Russia, but it always crept back into her mind. Felicity wished she had never knocked on his door. She would never have known if she had only waited in her room or elsewhere. She was stupid to think that anything in her mind could remain locked away in another country.
“Did you mumble something?”
She forgot Diggle was so close. “What? Oh, no, I wasn't saying anything.” She paused. “Was I?”
“Yes, Felicity. You were mumbling. Something about Oliver and Russia and the wrong one again.”
“I really need to just keep my mouth shut and my brain off.”
“You can't shut off your brain, Felicity. No one would want you to.” He waited a moment before leaning closer and whispering, “Besides, I think you're right.”
“What are you two whispering about?”
“Nothing,” they answered in unison.
“Okay.” Oliver gave them a puzzled look before asking, “So what do we have planned for this evening?”
Diggle smiled as he watched Felicity scan the monitors for any activity. He looked at Oliver and continued to smile as he noticed his friend was watching her too.

Summary: They finally get to go on vacation and Steve surprises him with another island
Author's Note: I've written many, many, many stories for H50 and yet, it took an entire month to write this one! *shakes head* I have no idea why I had nothing until last night. But finally, the words came so this one has no beta.
“Why are we here?”
“I wanted to surprise you.”
Danny looked at Steve and shook his head. “I wanted to go on vacation and we're on another island.”
“Yes, but it isn't Hawaii” Steve pointed out.
“True” Danny had to admit, “but still an island, babe.”
Steve laughed. “I know. But this island is more remote. This island is even more beautiful. And this island doesn't know that we're a part of Five-O.”
“So, if something awful happens in the next six days, you promise me, you are not going to try and save someone or stop someone from doing something horrible?”
“Well, if I see it happening I will probably step in, but I like to think I would do that even if I wasn't a part of Five-0.” He smiled at Danny. “You'd step in. You know you would.”
“Yeah. But I wouldn't go looking for some disaster to fix or a damsel to save, the way I have a feeling you might.” Danny raised an eyebrow at Steve as he waited for a response.
“That's not entirely true. I am always watching our surroundings for danger, but that is not actively looking for something to happen.” Steve furrowed his brows. “I do remember that we are here on vacation, and I will be sure to keep that in mind.”
“You'd better remember, Steven.”
“I love you, Danny.”
He couldn't help but smile. “I know. And I love you, Steve.” Danny winked and added, “now, let's find one of those cabana boys or waitresses or someone to bring us some of those fancy drinks with the umbrellas.”
Steve reached around and grabbed two bottles of beer from their cooler. “This will have to do.” He grinned. “I suppose I am your cabana boy today.”
“I can live with that.”
Title: Difficult Decisions

Warnings/Spoilers: never happened
Summary: They were having a difficult time deciding on a destination for their honeymoon and finally found a solution they could both live with
Author's Note: This one was not easy. I intended for this to be Beckett and Castle but when I thought specifically about the two of them, the words wouldn't come. It wasn't until I decided that I would just go with 'he' and 'she' that the words finally made their way to my blank document! Again, finished this one last night so there was no beta.
“Why is it so difficult for us to choose a destination for our honeymoon? It should not be this hard.”
“I think everything we've had to choose for our wedding has been difficult.” He saw the look on her face and quickly added, “of course it is all worth it. And the decision to propose was the easiest choice of all.” He relaxed a bit as he noticed a grin appearing across her face. “Let's grab the globe and spin it. See where it lands.”
“That's a little broad.”
“Maybe.” He looked at her and tilted his head. “I'd be willing to try any other idea you might have.”
“Ha ha. If I had another idea, we wouldn't be having this discussion about your globe, would we?”
“Probably not.” He stood, retrieved the globe and brought it back. He placed it in front of her. “Okay. Spin.”
“Why am I the one spinning?”
“Why wouldn't you want to spin?”
“I don't know.” She sighed and looked at the globe. “So, I just spin and whatever is in front of me is where we go?”
“The entire area? Or do we pick one place inside of the giant area that will be in front of me?”
“Oh, good question.” He thought a moment and said, “I think we decide on that once we see where it lands. It could be an entire area we would love to visit.”
“True.” She placed her hand on the globe and looked into his eyes. “Ready?”
She spun the globe right off on to the floor. She laughed as she stood up and grabbed it. She inspected it, making sure it would still spin properly and then set it down in front of where she was sitting. “Maybe I should stand and hold it too as I spin?”
“Good idea.” He stood and held the bottom of the globe. “I'll hold, you spin.”
“Great.” She realized the idea of a quarter of the globe to choose from might not be the best idea so she made a suggestion. “Wait, we need to make the choice as easy as possible. Having an entire area to choose from would be too broad.”
“I don't know.” She knew she didn't want to choose from a quarter of the globe but she didn't exactly know how to achieve it.
“I got it. Close your eyes after you spin it. I'll tell you when, and then you touch the globe. Wherever you point is where we go.”
She thought a moment and smiled. “Sounds good.” Her stomach was fluttering and she had no idea why. They were in love and they were getting married. So, why was she so nervous about spinning a silly globe to find out where they were going on their honeymoon? “Here we go.” She spun the globe one more time and it seemed to go around in slow motion. Finally, it slowed and then stopped.
She placed her finger on the globe and hoped for the best.
They looked at one another and then back at the globe before he spoke. “So. Let's see.” He leaned closer to the globe and ran through some of the places they could go. “Sweetheart, I'm not sure I'd want to go to Russia right now. Or China. Your finger is in the water so it is a little difficult to find some land to spend our honeymoon. There's Japan.”
“I've always wanted to visit Japan.”
He had a look of surprise on his face when he glanced over at her before he focused once more on the globe. “Japan?” He wasn't sure any of those spots seemed appealing but she said Japan so he supposed that is where they would go. “You sure?”
She looked at the man she loves more than anything and grinned. “Yes. Japan.”
“Okay. Japan it is.” He held her head in his hands and told her he loved her before he kissed her. He let her go and smiled. “Now, let's plan our honeymoon.”
