Review Comments:

whynot1993 - Hahaha, it is quite the notion, isn't it? haha.

LoisNClark4Ever - I think you might be right about that one, haha. That shall all be revealed in good time! haha. But yeah, it should be fun to write another adventure for these two. It's been a long time since they got to team-up, on the same side, haha. Ah, I wish I had thought of that! hahaha. I can just see Lex running around with an afro and a 70's goatee or something, hahaha.

crazyhpcfan - I'm glad you liked it!

Tomarisun - I'm still quite surprised how much I took to Chris Kent when he first appeared in the comics and how quickly I felt like he was part of the Lane-Kent family. Maybe it's because I hadn't really considered the idea of Lois and Clark having a child of their own, and this might be as close as we get to it. Obviously, they have their own in my story thanks of a kinda-sorta crossover with another story that I love, but still. Zod's story will get picked up soon I think, haha. We shall see his evil plans, haha.

XOjonniXO - I'm glad that you liked it! That chapter seems like a lifetime ago, hahaha. But yeah, my original thought was how much we needed a Clark Picks Lois scene in Smallville. I can't really call myself much of a Lana fan to be honest, haha. I spent the first two seasons whining about how I wanted Lois to come around, then decided to give it a chance in Season 3, and then after seeing Erica Durance as Lois in Season 4, I was pretty much praying for Lana to die from then on, hahaha.

And don't worry about long reviews! They're encouraged!

LaLaALa521 - I'm glad that you liked them! Hopefully you like the almost two hundred more! haha.

Pairing: Clois, one-sided Metallois (See what I did there? Mesa clever. Yeah, I know, the Jar-Jar Binks voice is lame.)

Author's Note: This continues on from chapter 215's Metallo, hope you guys enjoy it!


"Lois..."

She didn't look up. She was busy. Perry was breathing down her neck for the story on the Mayor's affair, and it needed to be done. "Look, I don't care if Jimmy's light-up shoes give you migraines, he's your partner. Learn to love him, and I swear to all things holy in maple doughnut heaven, if you make a joke about me and Smallville," she started to turn her head, "I will kill you- not Jeff."

"I probably should have said something, huh?" he smiled nervously.

Lois gave him the "what-the-frick?" look, "Umm, yeah. John Corben. What are you doing here?"

John shrugged slightly, "I came to see you."

"I see that. I meant Metropolis. What are you doing here?"

He frowned, "I don't know what you mean."

She shook her head, "You don't remember getting hunted down? For your, you know, special Tony Stark heart?"

"I did?"

Her eyes about bugged out of her head, "Yes, you did. We almost got killed. Like, often."

The whole incident made her appreciate having Emil on-call for medical emergencies. He had thankfully gotten over his fear that Clark would burn out his eyes for having to see Lois naked once. He was still timid though-

"Wow, I don't...I don't really remember that at all. I remember being with you, I... I feel like you were protecting me."

She snapped back to reality, "Well, I remember, and yeah, I did, but you need to be more careful, John."

John smiled at her, "You're still protecting me..."

"Yeah, I guess Superman has rubbed off on-" she saw him leaning forward, eyes closed and lips pursed, "-woah! What the hell do you think you are doing?!" she shouted as she jumped away from him. He looked confused.

"I dont... I don't understand... I thought that you loved me?"

Lois twisted her face in confusion, "No, John, if you remember your time with me, don't you remember me telling you that I had someone else? Don't you remember me telling that he was it for me? Don't you remember that?"

John started to get angry, "You protected me! You were there with me! You were going to run away with me!"

"I was going to help you get away. I was trying to save you, I wasn't trying to run away with you!

Lois furrowed her brow as she started to hear something thump. John stared at her hard. "Who is he?"

"What?" she asked as he pulled her from her thoughts.

"Who is he? Who is this other guy?"

She shook her head, "You can't be serious! John, there was never anything between us!"

He started to breathe hard. He nearly advanced on her before he noticed the name on the adjoined desk. He turned and blew out of the room, causing Lois to rip her cell phone off her desk and quickly dial Clark's number.

"Miss me alread-"

She rolled her eyes quickly, "Smallville! Shut up and listen!"

"Lois, what's wrong? Are you ok?"

"Yes, I'm fine! Just listen! You remember John Corben? The guy with the kryptonite heart?"

She could hear a clink as his glasses hit his phone as Clark did his usual 'look-away-to-think' move. "The guy who blamed me for his sister dying? I haven't seen him since he appeared in the Fortress when I was with Zod. What about him?"

"Well, he just showed up at the Planet, and he doesn't remember anything other than the fact that he's in love with me." Now she could them squeak as he furrowed his brow and dragged the plastic slightly against his phone. "Oh, relax, you're the only one for me. The point is that he wants to kill you. And he has that kryptonite heart, you're going to need a plan."

"He won't be the first villain to try and use kryptonite against Superman, Lois."

Lois shook her head, "No, he doesn't want to kill Superman, he wants to kill Clark Kent."

"But those are the same people..."

If he was there, she would have punched him. "Nothing gets past you, Smallville. I mean he wants to kill glasses Clark, not tights Clark." She heard the squeak again, "I know, they're not tights. We know. Just be ready, ok?"

"Worried about me, Lo?"

She couldn't help but roll her eyes at the smirk she knew he had on his face, "You know the deal, I kill you, not some guy who has an iPod for a heart. Now call up Bruce and get some lead-lined tights or something."

"He's Batman, not James Bond, Lois. He doesn't exactly have Q waiting in the workshop."

"Please, I know he's not James Bond. I'd notice that british accent, and I don't have to tell you how sexy a british accent is." She could hear how his breath hitched just slightly. "Later. You need to focus on not dying. Then hanky-panky."

"Deal."


Author's Note: Well, what did you think? haha. I know a chapter that will likely lead into a big fight chapter should probably be more serious, but after all the serious chapter we've had lately, I wanted to have some chuckles. I even worked in a James Bond joke, come on, that was chuckle worthy, haha. Anyways, make sure to let me know what you thought!

Make sure to shoot me a review! Makes me post sooner!

Next up: It's probably going to be Bruno Mannheim, it's written, but I feel like it's missing something, so it might be something else.
