Trojan Boys {Clark & Lex} #172: "It's a complicated world, Clark. Only the naive view it in black and white."

Welcome to the thread172 for the couple that we refer to as Clex

Clark Kent & Lex Luthor

Jonathan: "Kids just don't fall out of the sky, Martha.
Martha: Then where did he come from?

We've all had those “I wouldn’t know the right person
if they fell from the sky”
but what if your right person fell from the sky
and you knew it right away.
That’s story of Clark Kent and Lex Luthor
that began October 16, 2001
...and continued through150threads.

They both had the world, one was destined to save it
and the other was destined to take it over
but somehow fate intervened and the rest
well…that’s history.
The farmboy/superhero and the billionaire had
their share of issues and lies
but love always came through in the end.

The Smallville meteor shower was one of the
worst tragedies in that fictional town, but little
did anyone know that a “visitor from the sky”
would impact so many lives. They weren’t
perfect even though one would argue that…
they were and always will be
perfectly imperfect for each other
but we love them the way they are always!

Clex has the one thing that all other couples on Smallville…
chemistry, the one thing
on this show that was never a lie. People have tried to say
that they weren’t meant to be…destined…soul mates…
but they always knew better, we always knew better.
They both had to get adjusted to new settings, new people,
they did at time…but love always brought them back to each
other and this is why we celebrate…because
we know that someday they will be back together.

I’d like to once again thank my Clex BFF Claudia,
who always makes all the arts and always knows where
I’m coming from, who wants Clex back as well as certain
other people gone as much as I do, and of course who
will always know what a single tear really means!
Love ya hun! .

I'd also like to thank my "partner in crime" Lauren,
for being the best Clex BFF anyone could ever ask for,
I'm glad that clex gave me the opportunity to meet someone
as special as you are, love ya hun! .

So, that being said, long live
the most important couple of this show
and let's just hope that BK will never have it his way!.

"Lex, have you ever wondered
if you're destined to be with someone?.

Credit: Claudypritz

After150threads and almost 10 seasons later…these are the top 25 things we’ve learned:

1• Clark and Lex are still meant to be
2• The show should have ended after season 7
3• The only LL for Clark is Lex Luthor
4• Coming out of the hero closet will never make you a better person
5• Aquaman is bitter and has jealousy issues
6• A ring on the finger means nothing in the Smallville Universe
7• Someone that can barely graduate high school can get a job at the Daily Planet
8• Clark is a liar…and always will be
9• With Clex it was always love…never loved
10• Clark is incapable of telling the truth
11• The only truth in that show was when Lex told Clark “I love you”
12• The BK only truly loves one person…himself
13• Anyone can be a Luthor
14• People never seem to notice when the only person crying at someone’s funeral isn’t the spouse…
it’s the person’s real one true love
15• Two people can keep a board going despite random annoying posters
16• Zod has a crush on Jor and always will!
17• The Luthor’s and the Kent’s are meant to be!
18• People that make absolutely no chemistry can be together in some people’s minds
19• All the missing people are on an island somewhere mocking the show
20• Jonathan and Lionel went to hell
21• Tom as executive producer does absolutely nothing to make the show better
22• Some people can’t take a hint
23• The Talon should have been blown up a long time ago
24• Soul mates is only a term to be used for Clex
25• As always “Destiny…is another word for not having a choice”

Despite what was done to them in the show,
we will always believe that Clark Kent and Lex Luthor are soul mates
no matter what the show and the comic books say.
From day one Clark and Lex were destined to be with each other,
fate lead them to one another and fate
will bring them back to one another.

They are not enemies and they will never hate each other
because they have been through to much together to ever feel
anything else but love for each other.
Throughout his years, Clark has saved many people’s life
but he will always know that
his first of many saves will always be Lex
and they both remember it like yesterday.

Clark and Lex will always be important parts of each other’s
lives and they will always remember their time spent together.

To the fans of Clex, they will always be much more than
the people that the world sees,
they will always be the Clark and Lex that each other saw.

• S e a s o n 1 O n e

Smallville came to our screens on
October 16, 2001
and told the story of a mysterious stranger from space
that came to Smallville.

This was the best season for Clex
because this is where it all began from the car accident
to the tornado and everything in between.

There were many great Clex moments in season one
and this was the season where it was clear that both
Clark and Lex were made for something better than small town life.
From the first save at the bridge to the many saves in between
Clark and Lex became closer as “friends.”

Clark worked through his year of high school,
while keepings his powers hidden and
his feelings for Lex not hidden at all

" You can waste your time playing it safe or you can go for it,
But at some point, Clark...
you just know when something is right

" Lex, I don’t think having passion is such a bad thing"

Credit: claudypritz

• S e a s o n 2 T w o

This season started with the residents of the town
cleaning up from the tornado
and trying to recover what was left of Smallville.
This season introduced Lex’s two of three wives,
which were Desiree and Helen; though he was unsure about them
Clark was the best man for both of the weddings.

Through the ups and the downs
Clark saved Lex many times in this season
as many people wanted him dead and would do
anything possible to get that done.

Many episodes focused on the past of Clark and Lex
where we learned that before they came together as friends
after the car accident Jonathan saved Lionel and Lex
from the meteor shower right after they saved Clark.

Clark’s secret still drove Lex crazy
but they still cared about each other as their lives
kept getting more complicated.

" Lex, your father threw you in a mental institution and fried your brain.
If you found that out all over again I thought he might kill you
and I couldn’t live with that

" Three months on a deserted island, was almost worth it
to see the look on your face right now.

Credit: claudypritz

• S e a s o n 3 T h r e e

Season 3 began with Lex being presumed dead
after a place crash while on the way to his honeymoon with Helen
and Clark taking a risk as Kal in Metropolis.
Lex wasn’t dead after all he was just stranded on a desert island and
Clark refusing to accept who he really is
robs, confuses, and upsets the citizens of Metropolis
while on Red Kryptonite.

After much work, Clark and Lex made their way back to Smallville
and as untrusting as ever the Kent’s still looked at treated Lex
the same but
Clark was beyond happy to have him back.

However being deserted on a tropical island can really mess
with a person’s mind, so
this season focused on Lex’s mental heath
and how it slowly started to affect him so much
that he ended up in an asylum.

Following the breakout of the asylum with Clark helped
with Lex became obsessed with trying to figure the
memories that he had lost.
Figuring out Clark’s secret continued to obsess Lex
more than ever
as he got closer
to figuring out what it really was.

The season ended with the loss of a not so important
cast member and the anticipation of what
could be next in the adventures of Clark and Lex...

" In my life, I've learned that you can never give up on something that means a lot to you,
even when you're coming off a losing season, you keep trying,
because sometimes you just need a fresh start

" Just tell me you didn’t do it... "

This season was the “beginning of the end”
of Smallville, with Clark and Lex’s friendship in question
and with the introduction of questionable characters and storylines.

As Clark became closer to his true destiny with an induction
of another superhuman that was
“faster than a speeding bullet”...the Flash!

Despite everyone still being against Lex,
Clark gave him another chance

and saw that though he did clearly have an evil side
he still cared about him enough to continue to save him.

The season ended with Clark and his fellow classmates
finishing their time at Smallville High School, and their
lives were forever changed from that moment on.

Aquaman, Cyborg, and Dr. Milton Fine (Brainiac) come to Smallville
in the season of adventure, and questions as Clark sets out
on his first year out of high school.

Though their friendship ended during season 4,
Clark couldn’t help but stay always from Lex and
Lex couldn’t help but try and figure out Clark’s secret.

There really weren’t any memorable Clex saves in
this season but the episode that we will remember
most is the holiday episode entitled
“Lexmas”where after Lex gets shot
he dreams of the perfect life where
he was married with kids
and still friends with Clark.

It may have seemed that way
but he didn’t want that life if it wasn’t meant to be…
all he wanted was to be friends with Clark again
and that’s what we wanted as well.

Quite possibly the biggest event in this season was
the death of a major character Jonathan Kent,
Clark took the death of his father hard especially
at the funeral were he knew that a big part of his life
was gone even though the most important person in
his life was still there amongst the living.

" -We're we ever really friends, Lex?.
-I don't know. I have nothing to compare it to. You're the only real friend I've ever had, Clark.
And somewhere along the way, you saw me as your nemesis, turned your back on me.

Photographer for the Daily Planet, Jimmy Olsen
and Rich Playboy, Oliver Queen (The Green Arrow)
join the show as Clark gets closer and closer
to realizing who he is truly meant to be.

There were many questionable things that occurred
during this season especially Lex’s third marriage but
the one thing in this season that wasn’t questionable
was how Clark and Lex felt about each other.

The highlight of this season and quite possibly
the entire show was in the episode
this episode showed that the relationship between
Clark and Lex was not gone from their hearts
because Clark risked his life and went through
the meteor rock to save the one person who
had always been there for him since the beginning.

Knowing that Clark would never give up on Lex
he was satisfied knowing that they would always
be an important part of each other’s lives forever
no matter where they were headed.
As we continued to learn more about
the history of Clark and Lex
their connection to each other got stronger
as their feelings for each other stayed the same

because their love will never go away.

but it has to end this way….I’m sorry

This season was the last one to feature Michael Rosenbaum as Lex Luthor,
with the introduction of Clark’s cousin Kara,
Lex found another Kent that he found rather interesting but
despite all that he always will love Clark.

There was a serious lack of Clex moments
in this season but that didn’t stop Lex trying harder
than ever to find out Clark’s big secret.

7 years of wondering, waiting,
and knowing the truth,
in Michael’s final episode entitled
“Arctic” Lex told Clark and the world
"I love you Clark”
though he said it was like a brother
we will always know better and so does Clark.

N o t e : We refuse to accept any other Lex wannabes/doubles.
The actor who portrays Lex Luthor on Smallville
is only Michael Rosenbaum,
and in case he decides not to return to the show,
to the fans of c l e x,
the last appearance of Lex will be
remembered as the last moment he had with Clark
in the Fortress of Solitude.

Our Favorite Hugs

Credit: Claudypritz

What makes Clex hugs so special...

"Sometimes it's better to put love into hugs than to put it into words.”
~Author Unknown~
Clark and Lex couldn’t always say what they felt,
but somehow they were always able to show how they felt
and even if no one saw it they didn’t care they hug anyway!.

So what made them special was that their hugs weren’t
always expected but always appreciated
because it was a constant sign of their love.

There was never a moment that Clark was unhappy when he was
in Lex’s arms; he was able to feel safe there as if no one could
see them they had their own extraordinary moment in time.

Clark and Lex never felt that special connection with anyone else
besides one another and they knew
that bond was strengthened
every time that they were with each other.

The chemistry that Clex has always had will keep hope alive that
one day that they will be back together to hug again
and get married of course!.

"Clark, I want to say thank you for saving me, but words seem too small.
Without you, I would’ve been lost. You’re a true friend.

" Montaigne said obsession was the wellspring of genius and madness. This is my obsession.
I’m sure you can understand my reluctance to show you this room, I thought you might decide I was a little… eccentric .

Credit: claudypritz

In the episode entitled
“Visitor” in Season 2
we finally got to see
“The Clark Room,”
in this room Lex had his collection
all the things that reminded him of his man Clark.

This room consisted of all the things that
Lex had collected of Clark since he met him;
the largest thing in this room of mystery was
the exact car that hit Clark
when Lex drove into him on the Loeb Bridge.

Along with the car, there were many other things
in the room such as
videos of Clark and the accident,
pictures that Clark drew of Krypton
symbols, other pictures of Clark ,
pieces of meteor rock,
melted bullets, and much more.

There was something quite magical about this room;
it was a room that showed that
the power of love and obsession
can lead people to do some pretty crazy things.

In the episode "Covenant"
in season 3, Lionel gave Clark a key
not just any key…it was a key to Lex’s room of obsession.
When Clark walked in to Lex’s room,
he was shocked at what he saw,
especially since he believed that Lex had stopped
investigating his alien past.

Clark was rather upset about Lex’s room but
he finally realized that the reason why
Lex made the room was to show
that his interest in Clark
will never be threatening,
it will always be the most real room in the mansion.

We have not seen the Clark room since but
we hope that the room is still in the mansion
and through the years Lex added more and more information to it
to make this private collection complete.

" I want you to be there on our wedding day... to see what you lost. "

Lex’s first fake marriage in Smallville was
to the power of pheromones in the episode
when Lex laid his eyes on Desiree Atkins it was
what he thought was love at first sight,
and because of the power she had over him
they got married,
Clark was the best man at the wedding
despite his feelings against it
and as quickly and crazy as it began
the marriage ended.

Season 2: While attending an anger management class,
Lex found his next wife, Dr. Helen Bryce.
They had their ups and downs
especially when Helen found
the “Clark Room”
in the mansion
but they decided to marry and
once again
Clark was the best man.

This marriage didn’t work out of course
because of Lionel and Helen working together
to find a way to end the marriage.

Season 6: Lex’s last and final fake marriage
happened in season 6 where to many people’s surprise
Lex married Lana Lang.
Clark was brokenhearted
knowing that once again his man
was marrying the wrong person.

Once again, this marriage didn’t last long
because it started and ended with lies,
it was clear from the beginning
that they weren’t meant to be
like Clark and Lex.

"You know how many times
we would goof because there'd be a moment...
well, you guys know about the grabbing-ass thing?
You saw those, like I don't think I one cares.
I mean, he's my boy, man!

And yeah, we're grabbing ass all the time,
touching each other's butts. It's okay!
We were buddies and sometimes we'd be in a scene
and it's really intense and it's just....
"you're so friggin' handsome!" (as Lex)
"Forget about all my lies...your lies,
let's just live this moment!
Keep it real, brother. Keep it real..."

Michael Rosenbaum

"I think the Clark and Lex relationship
is actually pretty powerful.

The homoerotic undertones
of that relationship
are just mind boggling".

Tom Welling

"When I tell a joke, he's the first person who laughs.
He's there every day, and it takes a lot.
I'll miss moments.
We had some great moments where we laughed until
we cried, and really enjoyed ourselves.

There wasn't a day that went by
when we didn't have at least one good laugh.
Even with a tough episode,
where maybe we didn't like the story
or the director, we somehow made light
of things and laughed”.

Michael Rosenbaum

"Brando who? To me there's only Rosenbaum".
Tom Welling

"That line....I mean, I couldn't do it because...
imagine me, standing there in this giant leather
I want to say something but I'm not going to
and it was 20 pounds and it was, like, purple and I was all
"Ohmigod, where is my career going?

Kneel before Zod!".
You know that line, it was hard not to...
when Tom got on his knees and I had to goof around.
"KNEEL BEFORE ZOD and" (whispers) "suck it!"
I had to say that on camera!
'Cause we're joking around,
two guys fooling around.....(crowd laughs)
Not like that!
Well, when you're comfortable with your sexuality,
you can say whatever the hell you want!
You know? It's just cool."

Michael Rosenbaum

"Well, the thing is, Michael Rosenbaum who plays Lex....
I actually bought him a car for Christmas.
Audience: Aw!
Host: Did you really?

Yes!, but he didn't get me anything!
He says it's back ordered, whatever it is,
but I think he's lying....”

Tom Welling

"The cast and crew, I mean,
they're like family.
I see them more than my own family.

Like Tom....he's like (*adopts gruff Tom-voice*)
"and yes, I will miss you"
'Cause Tom doesn't really say too much.
He's like, you know,
not as emotional as Lex...."

Michael Rosenbaum

"An important tool I learned from Michael
which I seriously will...will always take with me
is the value of off-screen performance.
Michael does a really good job of keeping it fresh for you.
He'll keep the same cues so you're allowed to....
so you know when it's your turn to speak,
especially when you're not listening to
what he's saying, you're just waiting for his last word...
but he keeps it very fresh and interesting.
He'll throw other words at you.

He'll raise his intensity, he'll lower it,
to really help you get a performance out and it's really helpful....
It's an important thing and
I'd like to take this moment to thank you, Michael.
James Marshall (director): That was beautiful.

Michael: I don't know what to say, Tom.
You're welcome, my friend.
Tom: And you completely...
Michael: You will always be a friend.
Tom: You completely deserve that Saturn award.
Michael: Thank you so much.

Q: It must be strange walking around town
when everyone knows you are Superman.
TW:You know what? People barely notice me!
It's always Michael Rosenbaum who gets the attention.
It's that bald head that gets him noticed.

Last night we were staying at a hotel and
I wanted to show Michael the pool,
but it was fenced off and the hotel security guard
just wouldn't let me past.
Then Michael appears and the guard says:
"Oh it's, go and have a look,
but it's because I love your show ok?"

"One my one day off in Vancouver,
on a rainy, foggy day --no pun intended–
I went and saw 'The Fog.'
When Tom was in the shower scene, I called him.
I go, 'Tom, I'm halfway through your movie, dude.

You look so hot in the shower.'
It was hilarious.
"I'm very supportive. And Tom saw me in 'Sorority Boys'
four times."

Tom: "The craziest thing?
Well, he's just, he's like a five-year-old.
He's always just starting trouble and umm,
but we get him every once in a while.
The other day he had a close up and
he was trying to get out of set real quick
and catch a plane out of town
to go to some party in Vegas with Jerry Bruckheimer.

You know, he lives the high life, Michael.
And just as he's going in for his close up,
for the last shot, the last thing he's gotta do,
he shakes my hand and I'm off camera and
I had a whole hand full of vaseline.
And I just smeared it all through his hand
and up into his arm, and he didn't break
and they said cut and then he freaked out.
And he's screamin' out, and so
who knows what people thought of him
when he got on the plane with a hand
full of vaseline. I'm not sure."

"I'm really sorry. I was back there doing an interview with E!
-which will never air, by the way,-
because my name isn't Tom Welling,-

and I don't have a sexy ass.
Hey, did you guys see that episode last week?
Doesn't he have a great ass?".

Michael Rosenbaum

"Michael brings out a lot of fun in Tom.
Tom has a tendency to get really serious”.

”I would love to have Lex back.

I love Michael
He’s a great guy, fun to work with.

I've tried to get him to sign papers that he didn't know what they were...
so, I'm trying everything that I can."

takes me out to dinner. I'm like
"Tom's never taken me to dinner before!"

And he's like,

I'm directing an episode right now and he was like,
"Hey, what are you doing?"
I go, "Directing. You should be in this episode!"
He's like, "Anything for you".
I'm like, "Ah, go to the airport!"

"A Billionaire and a Farm Boy/Superhero?
Who would have thought?
But when they collided that memorable day two lives changed…forever.
When I first started watching Smallville, not so long ago
I just saw something in this couple that I didn’t see in any other couples
or possible couples...actual feelings.

The most of the possible couples looked like they were forced together
because that’s the way that the Superman comics were written
thought that more people would rather have certain people together.
I really wish that people took the time and took the chance
to see Clark and Lex as a couple;
I mean it was very obvious that they cared about each other
and loved each other.

Despite the secrets and the times
they kept each other at arms length,
I believe that they really did love each other and at the end the
“I love you” was honest and well worth the wait.
They should have stopped over thinking things and
just went with their feelings!
No matter what happens Clex will always be
an important couple to the show and to me”.

Lauren [ocfan27]

"Clex is the reason why SV had me hooked from the beginning…
I never was a Superman fan, in fact, I couldn’t stand him,
maybe because I always thought his life was quite predictable and boring
and never saw anything really exciting in it,
so I was gladly surprised to realize how deeply wrong I had been;

however, I’ve got to clarify that I only find it that way
in this particular version of Clark Kent.
What I think makes this version so special and original
is Clark and Lex’s relationship which is, in my opinion,
the most interesting and well-developed by far,
and also the one that defines the entire show,

I believe they belong together as a couple because
every time they protect one another what they’re really doing is
to prove to the world once again that they’ll never be able to
give up on each other and in my eyes that can’t be any other feeling
but real love. Clark and Lex are also known as
Warrior Angel/Devilicus and Naman/Sageeth not because
they were destined to be “enemies”, but because
they complement/complete/balance mutually.

Each one of them finds in the other what they need
and that’s my definition of soulmates.
Even though their love story doesn’t have a happy Hollywood ending,
it doesn’t make it any less beautiful.
After all, the stories that transcend time
are those with tragic endings, that’s why clex
will always have a very special place in my heart.”

Our Happy Clex-Endings

My Perfect Smallville Ending;
by Lauren

The episode opens with Clark sitting on the floor of his loft packing up his belongings, camera pans out we see a
“For Sale” sign on the Kent Farm, back to Clark again he smiling a little as he continues to puts his memories into
poorly constructed cardboard boxes.

He hears someone…“Your football jacket…I remember that”-says Pete as approaches the loft where Clark was.

Cut to “somebody save me” back at the loft, they exchange a few awkward moments and they approach each other,

“Clark…I know what you are thinking…but its time…its time that she knew how I felt”-Pete
“Pete….Chloe’s dead”-Clark
“Your lying to me…again…I don’t need to hear this….I shouldn’t have waited this long but I guess that you already
know that”-Pete
“I regret the moment that we ever became friends, there was always someone else and you know it”-Pete.

Pete leaves the loft and speeds off. Remembering Clark’s comment he stops at the library to check the obituaries
it turns out Clark was right. He rushes to the cemetery and approaches Chloe’s gravestone…Oliver is there….
Pete clears his throat…Oliver jumps a little…they introduce themselves to each other…

“So it’s true…she’s gone…I wish I told her a long time ago how I felt…back when we were in high school”-Pete

“I’m sorry Pete that you didn’t have the time or the chance to tell her…everyone deserves to be able to tell someone
how they felt”-Oliver.

“Did you love her?”-Pete

“No…I only thought I did”-Oliver.

Oliver turns away and starts walking to his car…Pete look back at him and sighs….maybe he really didn’t love her
the way that he once thought that he did.

Cut to Clark in his living room aimlessly flipping through a real estate magazine on his break from packing and
listening to the TV in the back tuning it out until he hears “The Daily Planet…Fire” Clark drops the magazine and
super speeds to the DP…Clark stands outside the smoldering Daily Planet building knowing that there were no
survivors and that there was nothing he could do….he just stands there…helpless for the first time in his life…
while firefighters enter and exit the rumble with no one…he is numb.

Clark’s cell rings, he ignores it…he checks the voicemail there is a garbled message
“Clark…its Oliver…Clark…CLARK! Save me…He’s here….I can’t get away….CLARK!”
Stunned by the message and the possible sounds of gunshots…Clark sped away from the scene to Oliver’s
apartment; blood was coming through the bottom of the locked office door. He bursts in…

”Clark Kent…just in time for round two” “Now don’t cry at his funeral…it will make you look weak”-Lex

“Lex? Weren’t you…aren’t you?”-Clark

“Dead? Nope…..that jerk wanted to kill me so bad…but once again…his plans were foiled”-Lex

“I knew it…and he knew it but he wanted us to think that he killed you, but all this time….where were you?”-Clark

“All in good time Clark…now how’s the Daily Planet coming along?”-Lex

“Lex…it caught on fire I was just there…”-Clark

“You you know Clark…since I’ve been back…I have been misplacing things like crazy…I went to the Daily Planet…
and must have left my matches there”-Lex

“Lex…innocent people were in there…Tess and Lois”-Clark

“I’m sorry Clark but those two were far from innocent and I can’t take you serious when he’s lying here staring
at me and besides…blood is getting on my good shoes”-Lex.

Cut to the sound of ambulances as Clark speeds off back to the Kent Farm…he didn’t want to tell Lex that
he was thinking of moving…in fact he didn’t know if seeing Lex again would change anything.

Clark returned to his packing and was clearly absorbed in it…weeks went by and then months…
he didn’t go to any funerals and the Smallville Police Department were too dumb to catch on to what Lex did.
The for sale sign remained on the front of his childhood home for a long time….he had a couple offers here and
there…he never thought that his mother would give him such an impossible task…it was nearly the end of
December when Clark heard a car pull up in his driveway. He didn’t look outside…he didn’t want to, the doorbell
rings. Clark gets up…sigh as he looks are the sparse Christmas tree practically dying…

“Lex?” he asks…

“Merry Christmas Clark…it’s a little late but…I’m sure you don’t mind”
Lex hands him an envelope as he made his way inside. Clark opens it

“Lex…what are you doing”

“I’m buying your home Clark…I own it so you never have to worry about it again”

“Lex, you didn’t have to...I perfectly fine selling it and finding somewhere else to live”

“Now you don’t have to…Clark…stay as long as you like”

Being free from the farm Clark was able to come and go as he pleased…and as time went by the loneliness set in.

1 Year Later-Flash-forward
Clark saves a woman from her car that just caught on fire….

“Thank you…um….”
“Clark Kent” he says with a smile. Knowing that he didn’t have to live behind a mask anymore…knowing that if
he was going to be a hero than people deserved who was saving their lives.

During that time of saving lives and making changes

Smallville Cemetery-
“Oh, I wish you could be here to see everything I accomplished you would be proud of me that I finally accepted
who I was” Clark said out loud.

“Clark…are you done” Lex asks him.

“Yes….goodbye Chloe…I miss you” Clark said as he smiled and walked quickly past

“Lois Lane, Oliver Queen, and Tess Mercer” barely glancing back he noticed one that seemed all but forgotten…
he cleared the dead brush and snow so he could see the name “Lana Lang”….
Clark shook his head and climbed into the limo with Lex a moving truck is following the limo
because the Penthouse in Metropolis no longer has to wait for them.

My Perfect Smallville Ending;
by Claudia

Outside of the Luthor mansion, it’s past midnight, one week after the Red-Blue Blur and Lex Luthor
joined forces and defeated Darkseid. As anticipated, the news had been filtered like powder through
main newspapers of the world; all of them expressed publicly their admiration for the bravery displayed
by the man who until then had been best-known as the blurred protector of Metropolis. No one scrimped
on praises, they described him as a real “Super- man," whose force and heroism were “out of this world."

In the ample garden of the exclusive castle of Smallville, a gust of wind crosses the shrubs at full speed,
swaying them with smoothness as it rushes by. Inside his study, Lex falls back into old habits, and
seated at his desk, works concentrated on one of his projects, when suddenly the doors are set wide open,
and Clark enters the room.

There is no need to be startled because of the unexpected interruption; Lex knows very well his visitor’s identity.
He simply raises his gaze and for a few seconds observes in silence the person who once had been his best
friend, in fact, the only one he had had in his life, if he were completely honest with himself.
It seemed somewhat absurd to him to realize how a decade had passed from that one first encounter with the
blue of those eyes, and nevertheless in spite of the years but mainly due to his grief it would always be that glance,
the only one in the world with the power sufficient to affect his emotions, the only one capable of demolishing the
barriers that surrounded the darkness of his soul.

However, it was so much more complicated to have to pretend indifference whenever their gazes met,
just like at that moment.

“Clark," Lex says with a bored tone of voice. "As always, there’s still no door to prevent you from breaking into
my property…what brings you here so late? Or should I cut to the chase and ask what villainy did I do this time?"
As he closes his laptop, Lex leans back in his chair, then smiles smugly when notices the confusion in Clark’s face.
"I will not lie to you, seeing you here was the last thing I expected."

Although it had been more than a week since Clark had seen the real Lex again, and not another one of his
so-questionable clones; the reality was that the interaction between the two of them had been limited in its totality
to the construction of a plan of attack against Darkseid; it went without saying that their personal differences could wait.
This time was different, Clark knew that the time for waiting had come to an end.

“Lex… I did not come to fight with you," Clark answers nervously. "I came because we need to talk.”

“And to talk about what exactly?” says a surprised Lex, whose interest had been awakened when he noticed
the confusion in Clark’s voice.

“Eh… about us,” Clark mumbles, and immediately hated himself for sounding so insecure, so unsubtle
and unsophisticated. Such hesitation transported him to a time that seemed so distant, when years ago in that same study
he used to be embarrassed every time his mind became too conscious of Lex’s eyes fixed on him.
It was true: the more things change, the more they stay the same, he thought.

“I was under the impression that there was no more us, Clark.” Lex didn’t like at all the sudden turn in the conversation;
he’d never been fan of surprises, and less of those that concerned Clark. Nevertheless, he distinguished something different
in the attitude of the man standing in front of his desk, something that at the same time was very familiar to him… could it
perhaps be affection, he wondered.

“Lex, it’s for that reason I am here, for us…look, ever since I thought you were dead I haven’t been able to stop thinking about
everything we went through together, not only on the negative things, but also in the good memories… and you know what I realized?”

“That you had lots of free time on your hands?” Lex smiles with open sarcasm.

Clark pauses for a few seconds-. “I realized how wrong I was by taking for granted that you’d always be with me. Even though we weren’t
friends anymore, and in spite of our problems, in my mind I believed we still had enough time to fix them. When I held what I thought
were your ashes, I understood my mistake. For a second, the time stopped and that certainty faded away. I don’t know…
maybe I needed to believe I’d lost you forever to admit to myself how important you are in my life. Now that life has given me a second
chance, I’m not willing to commit the same mistake again.”

"Wow ... this drama worthy of a soap opera is quite new, I hadn’t heard it from you before ... tell me Clark, what am I supposed to do now ...
to get up and give you a hug? Would I make you happy if I’d shed a tear?"

"Please Lex ... put the ironies aside for a moment, we both deserve to have, at least for once, an honest conversation, no more lies or deceit,
would not you agree?"

“You're the one who lied to me over and over again for years, and now you happen to speak of honesty? Do you know even the meaning
of the word? Sorry to break it to you, but at this point it doesn’t suit you, Clark," Lex replies, annoyed.

"Lex, I know I hurt you in the past when I chose not to confide you with my secret and kept lying to you instead. I wish you knew
how sorry I am and how I regret it. If I'm honest, not having faith in what we had was the worst mistake I made in my life. But there is
something you don’t know yet ... how much your friendship meant to me. How hard it was for me to lie to my best friend every time
he asked questions that I didn’t feel prepared to answer yet, and observe how the disappointment and the pain grew little by little
in his eyes." Clark's voice cracks.

"Why are you telling me all this now, Clark?" asks Lex very seriously.

"Because I need you to know that when I lied it was because I was afraid to lose you, because of my own fears and all my insecurities.
I dreaded that if you knew the truth about me, your feelings towards me would change. Then I started to think that your only interest
in me laid in your suspicions about my real origins, and the distrust ended up taking over me. It was not easy for me, Lex, and while
I know it’s not an excuse, it's how I felt."

“No, Clark. I only wanted you to trust me.”

“But I wasn’t ready back then….I wish I had told you.”

“I always knew it.”

“I know.”

“Don’t you think it’s a little late for us, Clark?”

“No… there's nothing that's lost that can't be found again.”

Lex smiled and for the first time the smile reached his gray eyes-

“How can I be certain that you will never give up on me ever again?”

“Because you can never give up on something that means a lot to you, even when you're coming off a losing season…
you keep trying because sometimes you just need a fresh start.”

“Is it one of your super-powers to memorize with accuracy every word everyone’s ever said to you?"

Clark laughed. “Not really…I only remember what interests me.”

"Good. You start to convince me that this could work."

Lex gets up from his chair and walks until stopping a few inches away from Clark. They look at each other without speaking
for a brief moment. Their eyes exposing their true feelings.

"Once you promised me that our friendship would be a fulfilled it," Clark murmurs.

"A Luthor always keeps his promises".

"Lex ... one more thing, about the I love you that you mentioned in the Arctic...
you should know that I know the feeling quite well."

He didn’t know for sure who made the first move. The certainty is that the next thing he knew was that the remaining distance
between them had narrowed considerably, and that they had wrapped their arms around each other in a hug.

Honesty, Clark thought, was a value that he definitely should start practicing.

The End.

Now, we’d like to take a brief moment to say a few words to certain someone whose presence has been required way too many times in this thread…
Dear BK ,

I’m sitting here thinking what could I say
that didn’t sound stupid or pointless but then I remembered
that’s exactly what you are, you are not my hero and I’m sorry.
I’m sorry that you were once lead into a false sense of security
in the belief that you needed power, money, and a name to
make people want to look up to you. I hope that you will finally
find your justice one day and get everything that you deserve and more
because it will happen. You never meant a thing to anyone and you are
incapable of feeling empathy for people that you have done wrong to.
The only time you have ever felt true human feelings was
for a moment in time…and it still gives me shivers to this day you can love
but you refuse to accept the truth behind it.
You have no one to blame but yourself for the way that you are and I will
always believe that because you made those choices a long time ago.
I hope that one day that you find someone that will love you even though
you have many men…they always run away from you I wish that you would
take the hint and run away with them! You maybe a fictional character
living in a fictional town but somehow the hate that I have for you is all too real
because I chose to watch Smallville and you came with the show.
I guess it can be said that for someone that hates you so much I do talk
about you a lot but it’s only because you are entertaining and
not in the good way…in the way that makes you so easy to mock for anything
and everything that you do or don’t do. So…where am I going with this?
You may mean nothing to me or anyone that’s left but always remember
that someone loved you…once upon a time.

Love Always and Forever,

L, and co-signed with C

So it means that it won't get done. So can't commit.
