Before I begin, I would like to say that my inspiration for this drabble came from the blog @iminyourhandskara. An anonymous had sent him/her a question of how Kara and Mon El would react to their daughter’s first date. I loved the response which got me thinking and eventually caused me to launch this little Karamel family fic! On a side-note, thanks to Smallville, I’m going to forever imagine Lex Luthor as Michael Rosenbaum. Until/if he is introduced into the Supergirl series, no one can take that from me. No one.
Mon El smiled as he took out the caramel swirl ice cream from the refrigerator. Netflix was on, the blankets were ready and the popcorn was popping. In a few minutes, he was going to be watching the Phantom of the Opera with his wife and daughter and laugh as Kara and Alura would undoubtedly try and sing along with every word. Kara had been born with a great voice and he never minded listening to her. Alura…well, she was trying. She had told him yesterday that she was thinking about taking vocal lessons for her Sophomore year of high school. Mon El wouldn’t hold her back just so long as it didn’t interfere with her training at the DEO. He had never said it out loud but he harbored a dream that he, Kara and Alura would be one of the first families known to be entirely made out of crime-fighting superheroes.
He whistled the Phantom of the Opera theme as he set the ice cream on the counter and turned off the popcorn maker. He emptied the contents into a big metallic bowl and grounded some pink Himalayan salt on top of it.
Lyra lied out of NECESSITY. She lied to prevent her brother from being KILLED.
Maggie lied to PROTECT ALEX FROM EMOTIONAL STRESS. She lied to help her partner cope with her new identity and ensure that her coming out experience wasn’t miserable like hers was. It was a SELFLESS lie.
Mon-El lied for CONVENIENCE. He lied because he was fully aware that the DEO would throw him in jail if they knew his true identity. He lied to PROTECT HIMSELF FROM BEING HELD ACCOUNTABLE FOR HIS COWARDICE AND LONG HISTORY OF SELFISH CRUELTY.
Stop comparing their lies and pretending that they are the same. THEY ARE NOT THE SAME.
Cleaned it at last ! It’s ruff but this is a sketch page I drew as I was finishing the first book of Phillip Pullman’s His Dark Materials. I had to post it, because re-reading the books was SO great ! I knew I already loved it as a child and would understand it a lot better now, but I didn’t expected to love it that much !! I took the complete three volumes for my one month internship in this tiny-village-with-nothing, and ended reading all of it in almost one week ! (That’s an awful lot of pages.) I can only recommend the series, and would totally make a badass animated TV show out of it.
Ps - If you’ve read it, you cannot forget Him. Yeah and that’s tiny Lyra and big Iorek :3
