But what if we got this nice, calm, drama free, mutual and respectful love story that just happens exactly the way it’s supposed to be in the background of everything else blowing up left and right. Of course there would be some small hitches because of all the other drama happening around them, but at the end of the day nothing much would change regarding their feelings for each other.
Wouldn’t that be beautiful and refreshing?
Just them falling slowly in love, respecting each others boundaries every step of the way. Building up this really, really strong emotional bond that nothing could break, ever. It’s not a very physical relationship, it doesn’t have to be, all it takes is a glance and they know it won’t matter that the world is falling to pieces around them.
What did you think of Jack? And do you still headcanon Lena as a lesbian or do you see her as bi? I always love hearing your opinions on these things.
I admit that it took some time for me to be convinced of Jack’s good and
loving intentions surrounding Lena. This is because she originally
referred to him as her kryptonite and admitted that being around him would cause
painful feelings to resurface. Never a good sign. I had a feeling from the beginning that he was not exclusively involved in all of the dark occurrences surrounding Biomax only because I remembered the original synopsis about Beth Breen. Jack came across as intelligent and charming but it wasn’t until dinner when I started to feel ok about him.
I really like the way they handled the story of Lena’s previous relationship with him and her receptiveness and hesitation with him re-entering her life. Of course my heart broke for her because of the decision she had to make and what she had to do.
As far as Lena’s sexual orientation, I originally headcanoned her as a lesbian, but with the introduction of Jack, my hc was no longer strict. I am open to her being bisexual so I usually just say wlw now for inclusive purposes. But a big part of me still wants to say she is a lesbian. Of course there are women that identify as lesbian but previously dated men. In my mind, despite sexual orientation, it is still possible to develop feelings of love and give in to the idea of being loved in return. I think it is safe to say a lot of us have been there.
Lena struggles with feelings of abandonment so when she has someone that loves her and believes in her and that person happens to be someone that she can relate to on such a strong level, maybe it is easy for her to love him as well. Maybe it isn’t everything she truly wants in a relationship, but many of the important factors are there. So after years of not feeling like she is able to truly connect to someone, when she finds Jack, she just lets it happen. She’s content. But maybe there was still something that was always missing. Maybe the painful memories aren’t just that he made her choose, that he didn’t make room for everything her life entailed, or that everything she thought she felt or tried to make herself feel was a waste of time.
Maybe the pain she feels is also guilt because when it ended, part of her felt relieved. She felt relief over the idea of after those years with him, she was finally free. She didn’t have to pretend anymore. Maybe she could move on and find someone that knew and appreciated her for all that she was. Not only Lena Luthor, but just Lena. Not only what everyone thought they knew or what is on the surface, but what is inside – who she really is. I imagine she found that in Kara and her instant connection with Kara and willingness to open up so quickly speaks volumes of that.
But Lena still has that fear. She is terrified that maybe one day, Kara will leave or be taken away as well. Maybe Kara doesn’t feel the same way. Maybe she can’t have the woman she really wants. Perhaps she should give things with Jack another go because when she had him, at least she had someone. Someone that knew her with the good and the bad and still cared. Someone that found out the worst but came back anyway and wants another chance. Nobody has ever come back and asked for another try. Lena thinks that maybe he deserves one. Maybe she can be okay with settling for the quasi-happiness she had before. Maybe she can keep her secret if it means someone accepting most of her, because other than Kara, who else would? Who could ever truly love a Luthor? So she tries. She lets herself fall in love with love again. She falls in love with the idea of Jack and what he is willing to give her.
But it was a mistake. As soon as she let herself love him, he was gone – taken from her because of a choice she had to make. So there it is, another person she loved cruelly taken away to the evil in this world. She will have to bear that burden and it hurts but she isn’t surprised because it is always the same. Maybe it’s a sign, though? At least she has Kara. Kara, who believes in her, fights for her, and vows to protect her. Kara who sees beyond the surface. At least she can still love her even if she can’t have her. Maybe that will change someday? And maybe if it does, Kara will actually be the one that stays.

@eriecanary: I literally just found your comic and binge read all of it and? It’s so freaking cute? I love it and your art style so much I made a quick compilation of some of my favorite panels :D I either chose them for their cuteness or the amazingly hilarious faces. Like I swear Flowey makes some of the absolute best face ever. AAAAAA also your Underfell Pap is my favorite take on him ever!
Oh my! A new reader! Welcome, deary <3 Glad you like the comic!
I can see many beautiful panels there <3 Wow, you sure took some effort on this, didn’t you? I’m flattered <3 I hope you’re not too sensitive and like what’s going to come! Thanks for sending!
I’m not good with these sort of posts, but I just wanted to express my gratitude to all of you. I have recently noticed that I’ve reached a little over 600 followers, and whilst that may not seem a lot, it is truly an accomplishment for me. Writing has always been a passion of mine, hell, I’m going to make a career out of it soon. Therefore, it really means a lot to me that there are people out there who enjoys what I create.
as far as I know, South Korea’s education system is one of the most productive and efficient systems in the world. South Korea nearly the highest educated nation worldwide. That being said, I’m extremely sure you are aware that this is a continent
This is Europe.
Not a state, not a country…this is a continent.
When you constantly skip it while scheduling your world tours, may I ask, what’s going on in your mind? I know you know what and where is Europe. I know you know there are plenty of people ready to attend your concerts…..You cannot seriously tell me it’s because you don’t like it. We got everything you want! Just choose one country!
BEACH OR MOUNTAIN?
OLD OR NEW?
BIG OR SMALL?
FUN OR ROMANTIC?
SERIOUSLY WE GOT ANYTHING YOU WANT! JUST PICK A PLACE AND DO IT!! BRING THOSE KPOP GROUPS HERE!!!
Must have been horror to read a lot of my negativity pouring out my heart but, your allowance for me to speak out all the poison inside me allowed me to earn my normal temper again. Thank you, not everyone is kind enough to sit and listen to a stranger.
Yes I changed my signature and now it’s based on my favorite number: 7.
I also started to think that my son Gin is so pretty I should use him as a slut and draw bishie pictures of him.., hm…
Congratulations you missed the entire point of the scientific method, it is to improve theories with further evidence and research, due to your dogmatic style you treat the science of the past like a religion, i bet you believe the sun still spins the earth, sex has been redefined due to research and truth is one sided, you are against truth, go read a good scientific article by Nature, preferably "sex redefined"
Because redefining things that have been understood for centuries happens all the time.
You mean to tell me that some guy with a bachelors in mechanical engineering knows the climate better than people who spent their whole lives measuring temperatures and climates? That he’s the one who understands sex better than literally every other civilization that’s ever existed on the face of the earth? Only just now is the entirety of the human biological binary proven (somehow) to be completely wrong and really there’s no rules?
I don’t buy that, and certainly not from some hack with a Netflix series and zero proven evidence.
