❤️🖤💛💕💜💙 The time has come to talk of many memes. Of bows and arrows and superheroes and Olicity and Queens And why TGA is so damn hot And yes, canaries need more scenes… But wait just one minute before we go and do all of that For this makes me out of breath To have this not small chat Felicity and I are a very tight two But after one through seven we will be saying goodbye to you I thank you all for the time we’ve shared The elevators we have climbed The monsters we have faced and scared And The burgers we have dined I will keep her in my heart for always And I hope that you can too Because she would not be alive if it weren’t for all of you 💕 Love, Felicity and Me

Last week saw previews of DCEUs latest movie Shazam take place at many Cineworld cinemas in the UK,.open only to members who have the companies cinema pass. I was lucky enough to go and see the movie and a full spoiler-free review will be up tomorrow. Needless to say, it’s one of the best movies of 2019 so far, and bare in mind I don’t really like DC.
