Title: Whatever Happens Here, We Remain
Series: Overprotective Criminals 'Verse
Fandom: CW's The Flash
Pairings: Barry Allen/Mick Rory/Leonard Snart, Eddie Thawne/Iris West

Summary: With what Barry hopes is the final battle with Wells on the horizon, there are only two people he really trusts to help him take out the other speedster. Getting them to come will be easy – they've been wanting a crack at him since Christmas – but getting the rest of his team to accept their help? That's going to be a little more difficult.
Disclaim Her: Not mine.
A/N: About the time I started working on A Distraction of Ice and Fire, I realised I would be writing something for the season finale. Which would, of course, have to involve Len and Mick helping Team Flash with Wellsobard. (Which meant I needed to figure out how much everyone knew about Barry's relationship; enter Relationship Status.) Are y'all excited? Cuz I'm excited. XD
This touches briefly on e20 The Trap, skips most of e21 Grodd Lives, and goes right into e22 Rogue Air and e23 Fast Enough. (With a side of Arrow s3e23 My Name is Oliver Queen.)
I sort of, while getting into the fandom, fell in love with the idea that a Barry who spent time with criminals before or during his first year as the Flash would have been a lot more proactive with getting the metahumans in the pipeline into more humane accommodations, so assume they're all either in Iron Heights, or Len and Mick broke them free en route. (I maybe have a vague idea for a headcanon in this 'verse where Barry helps them free Shawna, because I think this Barry would have a soft spot for her committing crimes to help her criminal boyfriend.) ANYWAY, the point is, there aren't any metas in the pipeline, so the whole mess with the Snarts betraying Team Flash doesn't happen.
