“kara’s whole “having everything” talk with clark, but with supercorp (or supercat, or even karolsen, i’m not picky) instead” from @syllabicacronyms and for everyone who send prompts about The Necklace™
She fidgets with it while she talks to him.
With her necklace.
While she tells him that she doesn’t think she can have it all: that if she loses this, she loses everything. That every time she thinks she’s on the brink of being able to have it all, she almost loses it instead.
“You’re talking about your boyfriend?” Clark prompts, because he knows her better than that.
She stops her pacing and she turns and she stares at him.
“What would you say… what would you say if I told you I’m talking about Lena? Lena Luthor?”
She almost chokes on her name, despite how good it usually feels in her mouth.
Almost chokes on her name because this is Clark, her cousin, yes, sure, but he’s also Clark, Superman, and a Super and a Luthor?
If anyone has some sort of right to have strong objections, it’s the man staring at her with sharp eyes and a slightly tilted head.
“What would I say if you tell me that Lena is your missing piece? The part of your life that you’re afraid you can’t have, but that would make you feel like you have everything if you do?”
She nods because she trusts Clark, but god, this is an awful feeling and her throat refuses to open.
“I would say that I wish you would’ve come out to me sooner, there are some great clubs in Metropolis you’re really missing out on.”
“Kal, did you not – I just told you – “
He crosses the room in what seems like a single stride and cuts her off with soft hands on her shoulders.
“Kara. I know you. Jimmy knows you. Alex knows you. And everyone… everyone pretty much knows, Kara. We have known. Just… waiting for you to figure it out for yourself. And let us know when you were ready.”
“She’s a Luthor!” Kara blurts suddenly, because this wasn’t supposed to be about her sexuality. This was supposed to be about Lena.
“And you love her,” Kal supplies softly, and Kara softens.
“I’m giving my necklace to Alex. Before the… battle. But would you… I’m going to win, Kal, I am. But if something happens… I don’t have anything to give Lena, since Alex is going to take my necklace – just for safe keeping – but would you tell her? Tell her, if something happens?”
“I’m not going to have to tell her, Kara. You’ll come back and you’ll tell her yourself. I promise you, alright?”
Because looking into his eyes, the way he loves her, the way he so casually believes that a Luthor and a Super could be… whatever she and Lena were becoming?
That’s exactly the kind of thing she’ll need to win back the Earth.
