Heee - the irrational argument was funny and, as much as I love dogs, I agree. A NEW BABY IS NOT THE TIME FOR A PUPPY = way too much work; nice Elly shoutout by the way.
A little cutting even if she was hormonal that she pointed out it was a half-human baby.
Also liked the bracelet exchange of course as that is obligatory for Chlark fics cause it's AWESOME.
It's nice that she and he work so well together, as ridic as way preggers "Watchtower" is trying to ride a Vespa (god I wish one of us was a drawer for that hilarious ass image), it's still like yup, mommy or not, out there in the field being a badass. I WANT LEX CAUGHT SO BAD I CANNOT EVEN!
YAY FOR LOLLIE (and I'm somehow amused by Lois's clothes for sleeping in).
Oh and this:
Clark pulled her close. “It’s okay. I thought I saw some massive meltdowns in our Torch days, but those were nothing compared to this. When you get back to normal, I’ll definitely be able to handle anything you throw at me after this.”
She scooted to the other end of the couch and put her bare feet in his lap. She wiped at her face with the back of her hands. “Well you should try having flood-alert-level hormones coursing through your system!” she sniffed. “Maybe I’ll ask Jor-El if you can have the next one. It could be some dormant Kryptonian ability!” she teased, poking him in the abdomen with her foot.
Clark’s jaw fell in shock and indignation. “Chloe, don’t even go there!” he warned, and she tilted her head back and laughed loudly.
LOVES Author's Response:
Haha, no lie, I know THREE pregnant women who decided to get dogs, and as soon as that baby got there, they were like, "this dog has to GO!" (don't worry, all the dogs found loving homes!) and I thought it was time for some humor in the story, so I enjoyed writing that chapter, and writing crazy-hormonal Chloe.
You know I love me some Chlark fic clichees, but I was actually sort-of poking fun at the bracelet thing- I wanted a more realistic/humorous spin on it than romantic an schmoopy, which is how it usually pops up in fic.
And yeah, little U-verse wink there. ;)
