Lois picspam #4

I know some of you have expressed interest in the 'Lois messes with Clark's sexuality' picspam I promised--well it is coming, I promise, but before we get to that I'm indulging in some Lois-y self-centredness. This picspam is about why I relate to Lois.

As warned, this post is totally self-indulgent--you may not share these traits with Lois, and these are not her omg!awesome qualities, just the small stuff that makes her human--but even if you don't, well, she looks damn pretty, right?

1. Lois is kind of awkward and bad with kids--but she tries.
I'll be honest--kids make me terribly nervous. I try to be all nonchalant and talk to them as equals but I have no clue what they're thinking and most of the time they just stare at me. It's very disconcerting! Getting stuck babysitting a kid I don't know is my idea of a nightmare, so I have pity for Lois here...


Especially because you can tell she knows she's blowing it.


But she really does try--it's not her fault the little brat runs off. And man, what a nightmare that would be!


2. Lois understands the concept of comfort food.
And she doesn't hide it. She shares it! Though she does try to hide the food from herself... I totally do that. I have an emergency cookie stash in a chinese urn. Hee hee hee.


The other characters have inner pain, Lois has... chocolate.


3. Lois has low tolerance for stupidity.
Um, me too! This girl was a total lunatic--Lex's stalker.


I love this expression:


4. She makes really bad cakes.
But it's the thought that counts, right?! RIGHT?! *clings to hope* The number of times I've made patchy, slightly flopped, unaesthetically pleasing cakes for my friends is... frightening. I still have a burn scar on my hand from the one for my first flatmate. I like baking--clearly Lois does too--she keeps on attempting it. But the results are ... mixed.


5. Lois is a coffee addict.
Well, ok, everyone on SV is. Except possibly Jonathan... or, no, I'm sure I've seen even him with a mug in his hand. Anyway, I still think it's great. I like having my addictions normalised. ;-)


6. Speaking of addictions...
I know, I know, I've mentioned the playstation thing before. But you see that look on her face? I know that look! And see how Clark's hovering in the background trying to get her to do something useful? That could totally be my boyfriend! 'Just one more round!' :D


7. Lois likes simple pleasures.
Like long hot showers. Mmmm.


And ok, this is completely gratuitous, but you'd all feel cheated if I left it out, right?


8. Lois has wardrobe crises.
She stresses out about what to wear. Eep! I understand. That girl stuff isn't easy. Though if I looked like this, I really wouldn't worry...


9. She has nightmares.
And she loves pjs. *g* I find it very amusing that she interrupts the Kents' earnest tete a tete to recount her nightmares. It is a bit rude and self-centred, but I also know what it's like to wake up from a really terrifying vision--sometimes sharing it is the only way to dispel the horror a bit. Though dreaming of flying men in red capes is a new one to me. *g*


10. Lois is uncomfortable with unexpected affection.
Ok, you could argue she's only uncomfortable in this situation because it's Clark, and I think she's especially uncomfortable because it's Clark--but there are signs of this elsewhere too. Lois doesn't go looking for people's approval, she doesn't do or say things in a deliberate effort to elicit sympathy or affection--so it sometimes takes her aback when she receives it: especially from guys.


Eep! Handholding!


*freaks*


This is my favourite bit--Clark just smiles wryly/fondly and eases off the pressure by releasing her hand and breaking eye contact. But he isn't mean to her and he doesn't look pissed off. *hearts Clark like woah*


So there you go... self-indulgence over. Feel free to tell me what little things help you relate to Lois. Or any of the other characters! I like the little details. *g*
