Summary: Clark never thought falling in love would be like this.
A/N: For my theechochorus table.

Clark was a big believer in love at first sight. After all, he had fallen for Lana that way. He could still clearly remember seeing her for the first time at the young age of five and how he felt at that moment.

That’s how he always imagined love to be like. Jonathan told him stories about how he met Martha and just knew that she was The One. So Clark figured out that when he met the right girl, he’d know too. Which is why he thought for so long that the right girl was Lana.

For a brief period of time, he thought it might be Alicia Baker. He had felt a connection to her when he met her too. Her death had ended any possibility of her being The One. Of course, he went back to Lana, thinking it was her after all but eventually, he learned that he was wrong.

After Lana, there were a few people he met and dated but none of them felt right. Then one day, he came to a realization: that even though love at first sight worked for his father, it didn’t for everyone. He also realized that the deep connection he was searching was something he had had for quite some time.

He didn’t have it with some girl but with a man and not just any man but someone with sparkling brown eyes, blonde hair that shone in the sun and a confident smirk. They had been spending the day, just hanging out when it struck him.

“So Clark,” he had asked, “How did your article go?” Clark had shot him a blank look and he continued, “The one you were telling me about?”

“Oh yeah, it went fine,” Clark said, nodding. He remembered. Then again, the other man had always listened to Clark, and remembered whatever he said, no matter how unimportant or silly the conversation was.

It was in that moment he knew. He knew that he could be falling in love with this man, none other than Oliver Queen.

Maybe it he hadn’t fallen hard and fast … for him, love had taken time. They had built up a trust and a friendship before Clark had even considered it could be anything more. It was a little scary, since that meant he had a lot more to lose if it didn’t work out.

Fortunately for him though, when he did finally let himself fall, Oliver was there to catch him.

Aww, and you know he fell hard and fast once he realized it! How could he not?

And I really liked Alicia (except for the stalking thing, and drugging him, I guess. At least she wasn't Lana.). She could understand Clark., and wanted him to be better than he was. Too bad she died. And at least in your fic he remembers her!!

Nice analysis of Clark here.

Oh yes, he definitely did. It took some time but once he got there, he picked up on it pretty quickly. ;)

I thought Alicia was okay, better than Lana but she did go OOC in "Pariah", where she annoyed me to no end.

And at least in your fic he remembers her!!
Yeah, they didn't really let poor Clark grieve, did they? I figured the people he truly was in love with were Alicia and Lana so I had to mention them both.

Glad you liked my Clark! :D

Thanks for reading and commenting! :)

Heee!! XD Love Clark's realization that Oliver was THE ONE. So sweet. ^__^

I thought it would be fun for it to just hit him that it was Ollie and I'm am really glad to hear that worked for you. :D
