I am rarely one with the interactive memes, but this one sounds like it'd be nice to do, maybe get the writing juices flowing again sometime soon, so Ask me what happens after any of my stories, and I'll tell you! Anything but WiPs is up for grabs on this one.

Also, OMG the cat is SO CUTE. I'll just be over here, dangling something filled with catnip in front of her adorable little face.

What happens next in Leave No Scar? Please tell me the world doesn't end in a nuclear explosion because Clark marries Lois.

No, no nuclear explosion. Just -- some resignation and killing of dreams. I mean, I like to think that Clark and Lois are happy, because Lois is *good* for him, and she's a really neat lady and she *loves him* but the thing is that Clark is clearly always going to love Lex. I think with Lois it's always going to be about safety and dependence. I had this vague idea a while back about writing a sequel to Leave No Scar in which Lois dies and Lex kind of -- creeps back into Clark's life, and this time he's the one trying to (sort of) heal the breach. It's all fuzzy to me now, because I haven't thought of it in so long, but I vividly remember that the last scene of it was going to be after the two of them had *finally* ended up in bed together (which would mainly be Clark's doing, because Lex would be all "You're my favorite toy, and I don't want you broken by heartache or nothin'") they'd be all post-coital and Lex would say to him, "I've never seriously tried to kill you before, but if you leave me now, you have to know that I will do everything in my power to destroy you." and Clark just kind of nodding and being like I'm okay with that. But the thing is -- I don't want to kill Lois. And I don't think that the gap here can be bridged; Lex and Clark have burned what lies between them, or rather, Lex has burned it, and sewn Clark with salt. Clark's going to learn to live with Lois, he'll be happy, but there'll always be this sense that he did Lex wrong. He'll apply all the lessons he learned in How Not to Be An Asshole from Lex to making his relationship with Lois viable. It's kind of a little death (not in a good way) but also essentially a happy(ish?) ending for Clark. Lex on the other hand just becomes all the more rapier sharp and bitter, and you know. Alone.

SO.....no explosions? That's good, right? *makes face*
