I wish this scene was in the episode, too. You did a great job of creating an off screen interaction between LL and CK. I enjoyed reading this a lot.
Thanks for sharing. Keep on writing!

Nice. Its moments like this that make them work. It would have been some thing if they did a special or something and showed all of the missing moments from Smallville. But that's why fan fiction is here.

Excuse me as I go cry T-T This was a great story! Has the capability to blow any Clana fan out of the water! Great job as always!

For the past couple of days, I've been thinking about how Lois knew Clark was her Clark in a matter of seconds. (Not sure why, it's just been stuck in my head). I thought about the conversation they'd inevitably have, and this story is definitely how I've been picturing it. I think you've got it spot on. Rather enjoyed reading it :)

I loved it. I also wondered how Lois knew about the two clarks. Great job at keeping them in character. I have always wondered about if Clark was answering the love question if he would say that he loved Lois. Great job on the story.

I will always prefer villains who at least have a point and frighteningly may even be right about everyone being better off under their benevolent dictatorship (of course make education great so the common man does know what is best for him and his children's children and democratic republicanism can work) like Ra's al Ghul if the environment isn't brought into balance no matter the means or cost the future for the human race will be worse than any dystopian fiction and will lead to the extinction of the human race not through misadventure but suicide through stupidity or Lex Luthor who as he says if he was calling all the shots could end famine and cure cancer and he could his mind is capable of anything perhaps give everyone ultra high-tech nonpolluting technology and maybe even superpowers (without the White Martians ancient experiments all humanity would be like the Kryptonians or Daxamites) lead humanity and the rest of the universe to unimaginable glory remember Red Son he united all humanity and led us to a golden age that lasted millions of years, no poverty, disease, war, crime, terrorism, or environmental problems and science and art advance
A lot of villains seem unaware that if they used their mind and/or other talents for legitimate business causes or the government could be far more profitable than any crime spree
When you live in a world of such technology and people with four digit IQs why in the nine hells haven't you solved the world's problems of poverty and disease, everyone should be given tech and powers
Of course vigilantes can be sanctimonious hypocrites judging others and letting themselves go unscrutinized condemning others when they do the same thing for less reasons I think it is disgusting they don't share their scientific breakthroughs (of course inventors should be well compensated) with the scientific specifically medical community or their skills with law enforcement agencies far more good than beating up thugs and psychos fight crime at its source ignorance and poverty. I realize due to rarity and complexity mass production may not always be possible or at least cost effective and due to difficulty not all could take brutal training but a little bit could go a very, very long way. A hero doesn’t just save people a hero teaches the people to take care of themselves. The ability to think of future generation when calculating pragmatic utilitarianism is what separates us from the animals. The world is not the way it is because of thugs and psychopaths, corrupt businessmen/politicians (which contrary to fiction are the exception not the rule) but because most people are too stupid to know what is best for them the extreme left and extreme right get caught up in their ideals and refuse to acknowledge brutal facts of reality no real world understanding of the extreme complexities of politics, economics, technological logistics, and how they’re all interconnected in the long run. People want everything right here right now the whole world just handed to them on a silver platter think just by complaining something will happen without a tangible plan. Such a plan will require a lot of long, hard, boring work all day every day for generations.
There will always be some exploitation, the best and brightest will elevate themselves over the common man, it’s nature, best for the species, it improves the standard of living of the human race as a whole, as long as they don’t kill anyone or otherwise actively oppress, free trade and enterprise is the only thing that has ever led to long lasting meaningful peace
I'm glad the government has Suicide Squad, Cadmus, Checkmate, the Elite, Amanda Waller, and the new female Spy Smasher, Cameron Chase I don't think there is anything wrong with wanting accountability from superheroes, having checks and balances on these living breathing weapons of mass destruction seems quite reasonable to me one will go left when they should go right and innocent people will die it WILL happen, not saying black ops don't have their necessity they can be used as a force of good
Have you heard of The Boys
Say you're Harry Truman, do you drop the bombs or do you drown the home islands in the blood of U.S. Marines BATMAN has no answer to that question
I hate how the heroes act like school bullies I don't care when it’s the sickos who enjoy killing people, the child molesters, the thugs too stupid to understand anything else, and crime lords even the ones who properly manage the implacable illicit businesses of city life (all prohibition does is make criminals rich), they’re probably still thieves and killers so keeping them on leashes is probably smart, but when they do it to the likes of Luthor and Maxwell Lord I almost understand doing things like dropping an atom bomb on Gotham to kill Batman
Sometimes the greatest good for the greatest number just means the least amount of suffering
The villains even ones with godlike power may fear Joker but they are in awe of Lex Luthor
I like to think Lex like Adrian Veidt in Watchmen can go toe to toe with any non-powered hero develop his own fighting style and workout program in addition to being scientific/business/political overall Renaissance man, that his white suit as powerful as his power armor
I also think he should have nanotech that makes him like the Darkness or Spawn, robots like his power armor, Doomsdays and Bizarros that are stronger, smarter, faster, better looking than Supes hordes completely under his thrall
In the comics Mercy is an Amazon as in Wonder Woman can go toe to toe with Supes and she has a partner Hope I like to think they're from the Citizenry space Amazons ruled by Wonder Woman's aunt Astarte with guns as powerful as green lantern ring
As president Luthor eliminated the national debt, brought unemployment to almost zero, it was HIS leadership that got us through two alien invasions and even the heroes admit without it we would have fallen
Only through Lex has there ever been an instance where humanity unites and thrives in the cosmos
Until the citizens of the DCverse say they'd rather have Lex solve the problems of the world instead of super powered people punching things they don't deserve the cancer cure and etc
Humanity's fate should be in the hands of humans
Ancient humans were the settlers of Rann, Thanagar, and Krypton, life began on earth
Superman undermines humanity's worth and accomplishments
A civilized man accuses specific individuals of specific crimes felony and fraud otherwise people should mind their own business this does not mean we ignore things that aren't evil but are nevertheless dangerous
Everyone should be given powers and tech it's idiotic this isn't done the heroes care more about getting off on playing Mr. Son of God than actually improving the life of the common man
God made man Sam Colt made them equal
When you can dodge bullets, outfly missiles, and swim across the surface of the sun it's only a matter of time before you start thinking you've better things to do than save the world for the two hundredth time

Congrats for the Pulitzer :)
Loved the story.

What can I say...Lois is my hero, my most favorite female character and "Luthor" is one of the best Smallville episodes, because it shows Lois is billion times better then the pink princess.
Thank you so much for writing.

Good job! I do love the interactions between Clark and Lois - with Clark realizing how dumb he is. Thanks for sharing this one and I will share this to my FB ClarkKentAndLoisLane page. _
| Eleid chapter 1 . 12/7/2012
I love the kind of stories where Clark is confronted about what happened at the AoS. Well done.
