Clark, Chloe, and the JLA are the first, last and only line of defense against the worst scum of the universe.
A Chlarky ending to Smallville. Takes place right at end of Season 9 (Salvation) Story begins at Watchtower minutes before Clark falls from the tower. Clark Kent is dead. Chloe will stop at nothing to change that...and that changes everything.
Winner of the 2012 Smallville Fandom Creativity Award for Best AU!! :)
If Clark Kent was dead, just who was running around Metropolis? Influenced by dreams that call her to the Fortress, Chloe faces a choice of believing in the man or believing in her heart. Chloe must then figure out the key to stopping Zod and the key to all of her dreams coming true.*** Another Chlarky Season 9 fix that fixes everything!
(Goes AU in the middle of 8.20 "Beast"): Clark is able to use Black Kryptonite to separate The Beast from Davis in the Fortress of Solitude and sucks both himself and Doomsday into the Phantom Zone. This leaves Chloe behind to deal with the fallout and bring him home. When her options start running out, she dares to trust Tess and her LuthorCorp resources, which might end up ruining them all...
A few decades has passed, but life goes on as usual in Metropolis. Or so they thought. Who are the new caped saviors? Why won't Lex Luthor stay dead? What devious plan is he hatching this time? Or is the man behind the man using our everlasting duo's enmity to mask his moves? Is the Fortress really no more than a (mostly) passive and harmless adviser? What is he doing here? Could she be trusted? Could they even trust themselves?
There comes a time when even gods must die... Superman in love; Superman in battle; and for the first time, Superman... defeated.
