Sorry For Raining On A Few Parades Last Night...  
But I've never been a fan of the character and this didn't exactly please me. After you've spent the first few of your fandom years hearing fanboys talking endless about how that pairing is the only one that makes sense and that my girl doesn't deserve him (not to mention the fact that a certain someone's interest isn't subtle at all), then you'll understand. Sorry. Not down with it. Only ever been cool with Lynda Carter. So, that's all I'll say on the topic; consider it closed.

On a lighter note, this is a round-up of my latest video favorites. Need to get my hands on the Full Blown Rose version of In The Air Tonight.

Hey I understand that. As I haven't been active in the fandom until recently (and only mostly in Clois forums at that) I haven't been as exposed to that talk. To me there's only ever been one REAL pairing when it came to Clark and that is CLOIS!

I think my biggest problem is just how much people either misunderstand Lois or underestimate her. Especially fanboys. Either she's considered a bitch or totally useless since she has no superpowers. It just makes me bitter sometimes.

Lois is a complex character, something which makes most women (myself especially) admire her. She's not a two-dimensional archetype which you can just pigenhole. She's got both and inner strength and savvy that any superhero would love to have (hence I think we sometimes think of her as the unsung superhero). To think she's useless is crazy (and probably why I'm so glad I haven't run into the fanboys who are all "Diana/Superman4evarrrrr!!"). I mean, think about the fact that she really DID do a little superhero stuff in "Stilletto" and she didn't even have any superpowers.

*grins like a fool*

And to that, all I can say is, "I love you."

Thanks, love. It's good to hear someone else say that.

Lol, don't apologize for having an opinion :P Haven't been up with what's happening in the SV fandom Lois will always be the best female superhero in my mind and the only one deserving of Clark. Diana just wouldn't be able to keep up :P (Although with Lois I've always thought Clark was the one having to keep up with her anyway)

Love the new layout by the way- esp the header picture.

And see, that's why I love them together so much. Without superpowers, she's able to keep up and even surpass him at times. And he wants her. A normal (if extremely willful and extremely badass) human. That's why I hate it when they pull the 'superhero couple' card. Especially with Diana. Oh, yeah, that's totally fair. *glares*

Me, too. I think it's perfect. I love that manip like crazy. :D

Oh, dear, the third!! one ... *sniffs*! I love that music..!! :D:D

Thanks for sharing these.

I just realized what you were talking about earlier. I have no idea what Smallville is doing, but it's all in fun (I think)!! *hugs*

Not a problem. I'm fairly certain not too many people care about the vids, but I love them and I want an easy way to find them. If you guys like them, too, then so much the better! :D

I think it is, too, but it just leaves a bad taste in my mouth. I'll live.

It's never fun having your ship picked on or told it won't work. ;) I say love what you want to love and tell everyone else to buzz off. :p

I'm the type that will very realistically point out the flaws in my own ship but recognize when they are working on said issues (i.e. Clois in the comics could not have occurred without them actually having a sitdown discussion like they did after she found out about Clark being Superman).
Lois: So Close :: Bruce Lois :: Partykalalanekent on January 14th, 2010 07:09 pm (UTC)
And I feel you on it. I think my biggest problem is that, while canon, this ship does get its share of crap. Not nearly as bad as you get with Brois, I'm sure, but crap nonetheless. I just resent the thought that Lois isn't worthy of him just because she's a human. And that means what? :P Stupid fanboys.

And you're right. I've written a little Brois, but in my world, they're just too much alike. That said, ship your Brois (especially since I understand why you ship it). It bothers me not at all. :D More power to you.

I was surprised but your opinion is your opinion, bb.

Lois and Clark foremost and forever. But if there was a scenario where Lois wasn't in the picture I could get behind it. I have a personal love for the comics where Clark totally turns Diana down for Lois. Lois is his girl, no doubt. I like Diana/Bruce though too.

I do hate the 'talk' where people are like Diana is the only one who can really be equal to Clark, blah, blah, blah. For me, it's never been about Diana being better than Lois ('cause it's so not true) but just different from her.

The Keri Russell/Nathan Fillion animated Wonder Woman is worth a watch though. Diana/Steve! :D
