Lois picspam #2  
The Lois!spam was popular--so much so that I'm still working through comments. But meanwhile, here's Day 2.


1. She's always one step ahead of Clark.
Of course this is deceptive: Clark has superspeed so he can afford to be sluggish. (Has anyone else ever wondered why Clark doesn't use Clark!time to do some deductive reasoning? Or is that just me?!) But she thinks she's one step ahead of Clark--and that's terribly cute. Also she runs well. I love this shot. She's all 'come on, farmboy! get a move on!' But awww, she wants to protect him!


2. She's got a scary daddy.
General Lane is a daunting man. And Lois definitely takes some strength from that. But she's not a spoilt brat--the General is a stern father, and you also get the feeling that the General's let Lois do her own thing for a long time now; she grew up fast and she knows how to take care of herself as a consequence. Her manners may not be up to the Kent standards, but can you blame her?


3. She brings out Clark's sense of humour.
It's a little bitchy. :-p This is another early favourite of mine. It's the 'guess what, Lois! you've got to go back to school--with Clark!' shot.


4. She can drink college boys under the table.
Man, did Lois get slammed for this! But personally I like it. I have no problem believing she'd know how to hold her liquor growing up wild on the military bases.


They are so screwed... and not in the way they'd like.


Gratuitous shot because I like a) her neck, and b) her pjs. Look at them! They're so cute! They have pastries on them! I love that she went out to a bar in these. Lois likes comfort (there's the running joke about her long showers) and she doesn't give a damn what other people think about her. I can relate to that. She also couldn't see the point in college at this point in time. And while people have slammed her for lacking ambition and being a 'dropout', I think she's someone a lot of kids could relate to. She's still 'finding herself'. *pets*


5. She kicks ass in bunny slippers.
Sleazy guys who follow her home deserve a slapdown. Of course, Lois needs to learn some self-control. (*coughs* So did Clark!) But I like that she's got the self-defence moves. And this episode was all about character growth.


6. She knows when to apologise.
Lois was mortified that this guy wound up in hospital, and not only did she front and apologise, she also vowed to stop drinking. She learns from her mistakes and does her best to rectify them.


And she sucks it up and admits her mistakes to Clark as well. With gratuitous belly peek. Yum!


7. She plays with Clark's telescope.
The phallic objects were popular last time so here's a bonus. *g* Only very special people get to touch Clark's telescope--notably Lex and Lana--they've done so with Clark's consent, in his presence. But Lois barges into the loft and plays with it herself--Clark walks in on her. (I could go meta-y on the symbolic significance of the telescope, but suffice to say that this shot is definitely a sign of Lois's significance in Clark's universe.)


8. She thinks boys are predictable.
Most of all, she thinks Clark is predictable. The ironic beauty in this is that she's wrong, but on the surface Clark confirms her low opinion of dumb 'beefcake' guys. This is her 'you are so going to crush on my annoyingly princess-y little sis!' face.


Aaaaaand what did I tell you?


9. She can make Clark go from this:


... to this, in a matter of seconds. Bless!


10. She pays her own way.
No living off Daddy's money for Lois, she's not too proud to take a menial job to pay the rent. Even if she isn't very good at it. *g* I reckon she can make a mean mocchacino though. And look at those arms! *envies*

Man, I love that shot of her running off with Clark. It says so much about her and her personality. She takes the lead, but she grabs his hand.

Oh, could you please? lol. I really liked the telescope one.

That and the way she can may Clark go from :) to :( in no time at all.

I'm waiting for the General to come back so he and Clark can have some more awkward moments. Clark's an alien with superpowers and he's scared of him! I love it.
K, Bop or Boppy--take your pick!: EssayGirlbop_radar on June 19th, 2007 11:11 am (UTC)
Oh, could you please?
Sure! Any excuse to geek. ;-) *adjusts meta glasses* Well, early on there was a lot of exploration of Clark-as-voyeur. While you would assume that the telescope was meant to signal his interest in the stars, his heritage, etc, he actually had it trained on the house next door to watch Lana. Which works as commentary on the fact that he was both romantically obsessed with her, and also that he was more focussed on the humans around him and on gaining acceptance with them than on exploring his origins. Then it was also significant in the famous 'Friendship of Legend' scene between him and Lex. There, Clark was still focussed on fitting in on Earth. If anything it was Lex who was already looking to the stars. So the telescope is both a sign of interest/intimacy between them, but also distance--they actually come from different worlds and look at each other through the emotional equivalent of telescopes.

From what I remember of this scene, Lois was actually looking at the stars through it. She's not really trying to find out anything about Clark by doing this, it's not part of a romantic scene where they both look through it--it's just Lois being curious and messing around. And yet she happens to stumble on something very meaningful to Clark.

I'm waiting for the General to come back so he and Clark can have some more awkward moments. Clark's an alien with superpowers and he's scared of him! I love it.
Hee! Yeah, he really wasn't happy with the General coming to dinner, was he?! I do wonder how much General Lane knows about Lex's work with military... I'd love them to explore that connection. And there aren't many people Clark's scared of these days. It would definitely be fun to see him back!
darenothope: Season 4 Clois.darenothope on June 19th, 2007 12:10 pm (UTC)
I always found it very creepy and stalkerish of Clark to be using his telescope to spy on Lana.

I think if the General came back Clark would be all assertive and I'm not scared of you but the General would just stare him down and Clark would be all meek. I've wanted the General to come since season 4.

*jumps up and down*

Because Lex was on the ground, wanting to be in the sky, and Clark was in the sky, wanting to be on the ground. *flaily hands*

Man, I really need to get around to drafting that essay one of these days.

3. She brings out Clark's sense of humour.
One of my favourite things on the show. I just love how snarky and relaxed he can be around her. And he's not afraid to talk back, he treats her as an equal, and doesn't put her on a pedestal. I freakin' love that!!

#4 FTW! Agreed.
Plus she reminded me of Marion (?) from Indiana Jones movie, that was cool. :)

*evil chuckle at #9*

Yeah, that actually makes her very special. Even with Chloe, Clark is very careful (when he's not redK!). She's got that protective bubble of best-friendship around her--their banter is gentle and affectionate. But with Lois, the gloves come off and he gets to use that snark. It reminds me of the couple of times he shyly made jokes with Lex. He doesn't really have anyone else who's 'safe' enough to joke with.

Kate: Clark and Lois - sucks to be youmskatej on June 19th, 2007 11:27 am (UTC)
I absolutely adore what Lois does to Clark. She infuriates him so much and it's so SEXY seeing him react to her in a way that's not all moon eyes and angst (Lana) or glassy eyed friendship (Chloe). They SPARK off each other and the best thing is that she doesn't worship him like the other girls, so they're on more of an even keel. Their chemistry is utterly wonderful. I am so in love with Clois it's insane!

And now I get to use this awesome icon in celebration. (I very rarely get a chance to.)

Right! And as Cris points out above, he also doesn't worship her--at least not at first. Now that he's starting to crush a little he's a little more nervous around her. Teeheeheee!

Right! Not exactly unique at all--and on another show, no big deal. What is unusual is how firmly Lois changed her ways in response--which should be viewed as a strength!

6. She knows when to apologise.
Lois was mortified that this guy wound up in hospital, and not only did she front and apologise, she also vowed to stop drinking. She learns from her mistakes and does her best to rectify them.


Back when I was giving Heroes a chance there was a scene where Claire apologized to a guy that she intentionally tried to kill or at least badly injure by getting into a deliberate car accident and people were lauding her like the second coming. Meanwhile I was all: didn't Lois get shit for defending herself from a guy and then apologizing to him?

I love the way Clark acts around Lois, he really is a different person around her and the two of them play off each other beautifully. He knows Chloe is his friend, Lana is his ex who he carries a torch for and then Lois is this force he has no idea how to deal with.

Right! The Smallville fandom is so warped--especially when it comes to the girls.

Hee! Yeah, that's wonderful, isn't it? I'm going to do a 'Lois messes with Clark's sexuality' picspam for one of the days, because his fidgeting around her is too cute.
president of the back seat: TV: SV snark Clark&Loisvibrantharmony on June 19th, 2007 02:03 pm (UTC)
Mmm, I love the humour that comes out when they're together! I remember talking about how relaxed and *funny* Clark got around Lois that he never did around others. It's just so perfect for their future!
K, Bop or Boppy--take your pick!: Clois mix tapebop_radar on June 19th, 2007 10:59 pm (UTC)
Snark! Yes! I like the fun she brings: the humour, the energy, the promise of a happy future. Because SV can be a pretty depressing place--I do think the show's written as a tragedy overall--but Clois balances that out with some light-heartedness, which is most welcome.
Reneereneec on June 19th, 2007 02:26 pm (UTC)
One of my most favorite things about Lois is the side she brings out in Clark that no one else on the show ever has. She was the first person to not think he walked on water. She challenged him in a way that no one else had and he just didn't know what to do with it at first.

Now that he can give back as good as he gets (end scene of Crimson) their dynamic is even better than before. I *really* hope we get more of these building block scenes next season that show why these two are going to be perfect together in the future.

Not to mention that Tom and Erica have incredible chemistry.

Right! I think that's so important for Clark in growing up. He's been in this protected bubble in Smallville, and that's a good thing because he's got the love and support of his friends and family and he's learnt to trust himself, but the real world is going to burst that bubble sooner or later--and I think having Lois do it playfully first will build a stronger Clark.

Same! And yes, their chemistry is so much fun. They really sparkle together.

Heather: Clark & Lois Prommiss_tress on June 19th, 2007 03:56 pm (UTC)
I think my number one favorite thing about Lois on SV is that she makes Clark laugh. That boy seemingly spends 90% of his time being all serious and grim so whenever anyone makes him smile it's wonderful. So the fact that Lois brings out the smiley Clark gives her mega-bonus points in my book.

*will always remember that HUGE grin on his face when she stepped in dog poo*

serenography: LoisExpserenography on June 19th, 2007 04:09 pm (UTC)
As an Army brat myself, initially it bothered me that they really played up the stereotypes of brats in Lois (the drinking, the fighting), but the one thing that they have totally *nailed* is her independence and loyalty. Not that non-Army brats can't be independent and loyal, but they are traits that seem almost universal amongst all the military brats I've ever known. Being the 'new kid' at school over and over again either does you in, or makes you stronger. Lois' is really the Uber-brat in a way - with her dad being a (3-star? 4?) General, and having no mother figure in her life to temper his influence. This makes the stereotypes work for her, at least from my perspective.

I srsly need more Lois icons. They're on the list.

That's great to hear that. I can understand you being bothered by the stereotypes. SV is bad that way and when they're about something you're familiar with it's hard not to find that grating. My boy's an air force brat and he would fit that pattern too. *g*

Uber-brat! Hee! And yes, she is. I think he's a three-star general if I remember rightly. But yes, it does mean her life is exaggerated--which allows them to sell the extreme stereotype and also fits that kind of overblown comicbook cliche style.

But that Lois icon is so very very sexy!

I have to admit, my favorite of this set is Clark laughing his ass off when he finds out Lois has to go back to high school. But Lois kicking ass in her pjs is a close second.

No problem. I am sort of a Nick and Nora junkie myself and squee every time I see Lois wearing them (she wears a blue pair in Lucy with the sleep mask) :p The pastries are discontinued, but may be able to find them on ebay. Here is one source for her style of novelty pj's. :)

MMan, did Lois get slammed for this! But personally I like it.

Um, YEAH! Me too! It reminded of that scene in Crusaders of the Lost Ark when the awesome love of Indiana's life drinks all the burly men in the bar under the table, the whole time faking that she much more sober than she actually was. Good times.

(I am loving you so much for this!)

Yes! Someone else mentioned the Indiana Jones ref. I think that scene's drawing on a classic cliche/archetype--and it's fun that it's doing so. The backlash was disproportional to the actual events.

Whee! It is fun!
