Title: Relationship Status
Series: Overprotective Criminals 'Verse
Fandom: CW's The Flash
Pairings: Barry Allen/Mick Rory/Leonard Snart, Barry Allen & everyone(-ish)
Warnings: Established relationship, polyamory, acceptance, secret-keeping, relationship reveal, OCs using hate-language, some characters are assholes (not the fun kind)
Summary: Barry's Facebook status has changed between 'in a relationship' and 'it's complicated' at least a half-dozen times since he created the account, and he somehow doubts that will be changing any time soon.
Disclaim Her: Not mine.
A/N: This is something of an exploration of character relationships sort of fic. Which, honestly, I hadn't intended to write anything like this, but while I was working on the timeline for the next fic in the series, I realised I needed to figure out exactly how much everyone knows – or think they know – about Barry, Len, and Mick's relationship. And, yes, I could totally have just left this in my series notes – seriously considered doing so, actually – but then I decided, what the hell, might as well share this mess. So.
All that said, you don't actually have to read this fic to figure out what's going on in the next part. (Which will start posting next Monday.) This fic focusses a lot more on Barry's relationship with people other than Len and Mick, though they do get some scenes, so if that's not what you're here for, feel free to give it a pass.
As always, a thousand thanks to StillNotGinger10, who has provided services as both cheering section and beta reader.
So, Cisco Ramon's up first! (With honourable mention to Caitlin and Wellsobard.) This chapter covers some of this AU's backstory from Criminal Partners, with the 'present' part taking place around s1e2 Fastest Man Alive.
