#they’re in the fortress of solitude   #talking to kara’s future mother-in-law   #queen rhea probably says something snarky about krypton to kara   #and then protective!mon-el steps in front and defends the love of his life   #because he will always be on and by her side   #and then he grabs her face because how could you not   #they probably kiss   #and then i’ll probably die   #when will they let me catch a damn breath

STOP COMPARING THEIR LIES

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.
