Re: Part I

And this is where I think the meta just leaves me behind. Or maybe where it becomes whatever one wants or needs it to be. The human mind is such a complex mystery, and I'm not sure we can ever pin down where Clark ends and the Blur begins in Lois's subconscious. What I'm sure of is that Lois loves Clark, and therefore she must love the Blur on some level as well. And when he can offer her all of himself, I think that will take her love to a whole new level.

I agree that on a conscious level, the separation between Lois's feelings for Clark and her feelings for the Blur is clear. What I'm afraid is coming next is Lois becoming so focused on emulating the Blur by serving the greater good that she denies herself the "selfish" indulgence of her romantic love for Clark.

Well, that "selfishness" about the love they have for each other is something the two of them will still struggle with even after they are married. Because they both know they can get lost in each other and shut out the rest of the world from the two of them if it ever came down to it.

But it's that feeling of selfishness that - while it will let them both focus on the "higher calling" when needed, as it were - it is also that selfishness that wont let them give each other up for the world either. Because if they were both completely not selfish about how they feel, they would give each other up. It's that same selfishness that wont allow them to give each other up and hold onto the love the feel for each other.

Part of the journey for them on SV right now IMO, is realizing and coming to terms with that.

Re: Part I

I think I used the wrong word there. :) I meant afraid in the sense that I'm apprehensive about how fandom will react, because I think Lois and Clark are going to break up. I'm actually looking forward to seeing them struggle with this, and end up together again, even stronger, as a result.

it is also that selfishness that wont let them give each other up for the world either.

I love the way you put that. The strength and fierceness of their love for each other, equaled only by their devotion to keeping the whole world safe, is what makes them legendary.
