It all started one evening in June of 2006 , My Youth group and I went out and saw Superman Returns( i hadn't seen anything superman before this except superman the movie when i was 5 and i couldn't remember it ), I was but a young one at the age of 13 at the time and after i saw it , i fell in love with Superman
After that i wanted to see all the superman i could, about week after the movie, i was flipping through the box when i came upon Smallville, The episode was Onyx ,but i had no idea what it was, i thought it was some Superman T.V. Movie or something ( I kept wondering why Clark hadn't switched to Superman and who was that cool blond chick , i even though for a second the Lana was Lois, since she was brunette and Lex seemed to have an interest in her , and i didn't know who Lana Lang was ) that's when i fell in love with Smallville
A few weeks later i continued to watch it on the channel i got to the end of the fourth season ( I the next episode i met Smallville's version of "Lois" and since i still didn't really know much, she seemed like ILL at the time , and i sort of liked her) i also rented all the third season , and saw the rest of the fourth season and the fifth season online, all before the start of season 6. Now at this time i had no favorite or non favorite character's( except Clark, duh) , ships or anything ( i didn't even know what a 'ship' was at this point) I just watched to watch. It wasn't till i enter the online smallville fandom ( and my first internet fandom) that i started to look at what i might like and not like.the site was Kryptonsite.com and i went there looking for the episode guide i started looking at the forum at the Clark subform then joined the site. I started looking around the site and came upon a thread called "Who do you think Clark should be with" , there were the main three girls there in the poll on the top each with a description of why they should be with him , Lana because she had been his first love , Lois because she was suppose to be his future love and Chloe because she deserved happiness, i had at the time began to like Chloe and thought the fact that she had a crush on Clark sweet and why hadn't he notice that in such a close friend of his , so at that moment i choice Chloe and started officially shipping Chlark.Now at this point i wanted to really define why i liked Chloe and Clark together and what made me see that Clark as well as Chloe were interested , was the Vessel Kiss and the awkward scene between Chloe , Clark and Jimmy in Zod.
This small little arc is what sold me that Clark and Chloe were both right for each other and both liked each other but was afraid to admit it to another because of three things
1. There kiss together screamed chemistry and longing
2. In the Zod scene, Clark asked about the kiss and his face said that he might of wanted it to mean more and his jealous look after Chloe introduces "Henry' Jimmy .
3. That fact the Chloe tried to deflect the question and come up with some lame excuse ( it was the end of the world blah, blah , blah)
So after that i was a chlarker ,, but not yet a chloiser , so i still believed that Edlois was the one and only and i thought that even though Chloe and Clark should be together they couldn't due to the fact that he was suppose to end up with Lois one day.
Fast forward about 6 months, it's spring of 2007 and i now have finished catching up with all the seasons of smallville and Chloe is now my favorite character and Lana my least , I love Chlark even more I still am ok with EDLois , and i have seen more of the superman universe, and am starting to understand the characters better , including Lois Lane. So, I'm looking at someone's art thread and i come upon some Chloe art that has her with the name Lois with it , and Chlois somewhere else, i had no idea what it was , i look it up and found out , it was the idea that Chloe was the ILL of the show , i immediately jumped on it because at the time it was a way for Chloe and Clark to be together , at first that what it was to me ,and the fact that Chloe was always a spunky, sarcastic reporter with a huge ambition to become a star reporter and great sympathy , all traits of ILL.
Now over time the idea of Chlois was challenged in my book , especially with the changing of the characters in question , Chloe and EDLois , they started moving Chloe away from journalism in season 7 and lightswitching Lois into journalism , and i really had to evaluate why i chlois and i began to really see what lois lane was like and what she wasn't like and by the end of that i could only come up with one conclusion , Chloe should be the true ILL, because even though her character has gone away from it , she is still more ILL than EDLois will even be even with light switching
So Now even though I'm not a Chlois Believer ( i don't think the power that be would do something that cool ) I am a support of this wonderful theory and think it is the best ending Smallville could have
CHLOIS FOR THE WIN!!
