My Reply To The BuddyTV 'Why I Love Lois' Forum Topic (Since It Won't Take)  

In short, do Smallville fans hate Erica's Lois Lane and is it due to her breaking up the other Clark/? 'ships on the show:


*snort* Secrets and lies! What on earth reason could you have to hate this character?

If it's due to the 'shipping, it's just laughable. No offense to the Clana and Chlarkers, but it's been made clear over and over again that neither relationship will work. The Clana is so hit-and-run that you feel sorry for them both because they just seem to ruin each other every time they're together for any extended period. They've tried this for years and it JUST DOESN"T WORK! I've been a life-long Clois fan, but I actually loved their relationship in the beginning. That said, you can only get together and break up so many times. It's time to move on.

As to the Chlark, it's not fair to Chloe, for the main reason that Clark has stated over and over that it's a friendship and that's all he wants from it. He's strung her along for years. I hate watching him break her heart. She deserves better than that.

Now, as to Lois herself, now that she's been pushed to the forefront of the series and has something to do, she's been amazing! Smallville has done such a complete turn around this season and Lois has been on par with all of the greater Loises. She's shown the iron and grit in the last four episodes that make Lois Lane who she is, as well as the hidden starry-eyed romantic she is underneath. Erica is finally getting her due, as are we the fans. Hate Lois? Never!


Plus, she's commented that she's inspired by the MK Lois Lane and she's Margot-approved! Who am I to argue with that?

Here, here! I just can't believe that we're still having to defend her after all this time. She's earned her place by now. It's not her fault what AlMiles stuck her with!

Crap like that is why I gave up on the Smallville boards. I learned my lesson from HP - I don't want to go places and be aggravated by fandom. This is supposed to be FUN.

And I'm not letting it get to me, thankfully. I don't have to argue my choice. It's canon, folks. Deal with it. :D

I totally agree that it's a wasted effort, but there are just moments when I feel the need to stand up for the poor girl, idiot article or not. I know they just do it to piss us off, but I just feel a rather childish need to poke at them. And with the job she's done since AlMiles left? The girl totally deserves all the love we can give her. Especially after having to take a backseat for so long.

I know, I know. I'm just beating my head against a wall. I should know better. *sheepish smile*

I'm not even sure what to do about the Chlarkers. I understand how they feel about it, but it's just frustrating because I love Chloe, but it was made pretty obvious from the start that Clark wasn't going to fall for her. And she was meant to be the Lois of the show in the beginning, but it shot her in the foot, canon-wise. No one can be Lois but Lois. And then AlMiles made it worse for her in that Lois was introduced as Chloe's cousin! *winces from the burn* I could just throttle the two of them.

WTF? There are people who hate Erica? That's wrong on so many levels it puts Hell's Nine to shame. *sporks the haters*

I have no idea (there were only three negative comments on by fans), but I just had to jump up and open my mouth. Couldn't help it. I'm grown to love the girl, eventhough I was critical three seasons ago.

Yeah, I saw that article. Excellent article! I've read some of the comments, and they mostly love Erica and her portrayal, but there's always one or two who just don't get it.

They're blaming her for the way Lois was written in the beginning. They have to remember the way the writers brought her on the show. She wasn't supposed to be there for more than a few episodes. The fact that she was so well liked in the beginning and Clark and her really sparked, that they just had to keep her.

She's iconic! I don't know what else to say. I've loved these past 4 years with her. Of course, she could have been written differently, but that's not her fault!!:D:D

I place the blame solely on the shoulders of AlMiles. That's where all of this mess belongs. *kicks them*
