Whats your mixed feelings and hc about for kara and clark??
ok so disclaimer: I know virtually nothing about the Superman mythos. I just know I’ve always hated him from afar because I thought he was patronizing and too God-like to have any real depth. SO. These are my head canons:
-Clark had virtually nothing to do with Kara’s life until she became Supergirl. He saw her twice a year during the holidays, they made stiff small-talk, he gave her a big but impersonal gift to compensate.
-Her second year on Earth she spends hours and hours making him a journal full of Kryptonian traditions and factoids. He does the patronizing ooo ahhh adults do when kids make them things and tosses it before he even gets back to Metropolis.
-To young Kara, Clark is a shining beacon of hope and her last thread of connection to Krypton. To Clark, Kara is a strange, unwelcome burden. Clark has a family and he’s really not interested in broadening it out, but he understands his duty to provide for her.
-He helps supplement Eliza’s income after Jeremiah dies so she can afford to keep feeding a starving Kryptonian. He also made a few calls to friends in the journalism department of the college she wants to attend and helps her get into the program. He doesn’t go to her graduation.
-Clark never loved Kara more than he did the day Kara became Supergirl. Finally, he had a way to relate to her! This is when they started instant messaging, having calls. He likes to think of himself as her mentor guiding her towards truth, justice, and the American way.
-her fourth year on Earth she asks him to participate in a holiday ritual from Krypton with her, one meant to honor the dead and celebrate the living. It happens on a specific day every year, and Dr. Danvers has helped her calculate exactly when it is. She says its important to her, that it helps settle the spirits of those in Rao’s light. He really does try to make it, but he’s got two deadlines coming up and Lois’ sister is in town and there have been four bank robberies this week in Metropolis, and could they maybe wait to do it next year? Her voice is very small when she tells him its fine, that she understands. He tells her he’ll come visit Midvale soon and take her out for ice cream.
-he never does visit. She never asks him again.
