Summary: future fic; Clark makes it snow for Lois.
Author's Notes: For my theechochorus table, prompt: snow

“It’s not snowing.”

Clark looked up from his current task, turning his attention to his pouting wife (though she’d never admit she was pouting). “What?”

“I said,” Lois repeated, “That it’s not snowing. It’s December … where’s the snow?” Looking out the window, she added, “What if it doesn’t snow by Christmas?”

“Lois, Christmas is a week away,” he reminded her. “We’ll get snow by then.”

“You control the weather now?” Lois retorted. “You can’t promise that.”

Sighing, he walked toward her. “We’ll have a good Christmas, with or without the snow.”

“Just good is not good enough!” Lois exclaimed, “I wanted it to be a perfect Christmas.”

Pulling her into his arms, he said sincerely, “Any Christmas I spend with you is a perfect Christmas.”

“Oh, Smallville, you’re such a sap,” Lois replied, but he did get a smile out of her.

“Yeah, but you love me anyway,” Clark said, with a cheeky grin.

“Well, you may be a sap, but you’re my sap,” Lois said possessively. His smile widened, and he captured her willing lips in a kiss.

“What’s the obsession with a ‘perfect Christmas’ anyway?” Clark questioned, after they parted.

Lois shrugged. “Well … it’s our first Christmas as a married couple.” Looking away, she admitted, “This is the kind of story that you tell your kids, you know?”

“Lois Lane, are you saying you want to have kids with me?” Clark asked, his tone teasing yet gentle.

“Not now … but maybe one day,” Lois said, meeting his eyes. “You’re kind of stuck with me for the rest of our lives.”

“I wouldn’t have it any other way,” Clark said honestly. “Lois, you have my word … you will have a white Christmas.”

“I believe you,” Lois responded. Seeing the trust in her eyes made Clark silently vow that he would never do anything to break it.

Later that night, after Lois fell asleep, Clark was wide-awake, thinking. If Lois wanted snow, he would find someway to grant her wish.

An idea struck him. If he had made it snow in Seattle of all places, he could definitely do in Kansas. Slipping out, he left the bed to complete his plan, but was back before Lois could notice he was missing.

It was Lois who woke him up the following morning. It was only 6 am, but the only thing he could focus on was Lois’s glowing smile.

“What?” he managed.

“It’s snowing!” she exclaimed. With that, he was dragged outside, as if she needed to prove it.

“Well, what do you now?” he said, trying to act surprised. “It is.”

Before he could continue, Lois cut him off with a kiss. “Thank you,” she said softly, when they separated.

“For what?” he asked, feigning ignorance.

“I know you had something to do with the snow,” Lois said confidently. “I don’t know which of your powers you used but I just know.”

He smiled warmly, losing the pretense. “Didn’t you know? I’d do anything for you.”

Clark's a total sap. I mean, the boy scrapbooks, for heaven's sake! But we love him even more because of it, just like Lois! ;)

Glad you enjoyed the fic! Thanks so much for reading and taking the time to comment! :D

Adorable! Wouldn't it be wonderful to make it snow on demand - as long as the snow doesn't hang around for 5 months!

It really would! I live in California so I don't deal with snow anymore, but I remember when I was a kid and used to be in the East Coast. It was fun but it could get tiresome after a while, lol.

Thanks so much for reading and taking the time to comment! :)

Depends on what ship you're looking for. I've written Clark/Ollie xmas fics, and maybe one Clark-centric ficlet. I probably have christmas fics saved from other people. Just let me know what you want and I'll try to see if I can help.

OMG what an awesome list!!! Thank you so much bb!
You're welcome! I just went through my rec lists and picked out all the christmas fics. i'm sure there's more out there, but you'll probably have to go a little back in the comms. I'm sure new ones will start popping up soon though! :D

I LOVE how you' write Clark/Oliver, Ive never even thought of this ship! But you make it amazing <3<3 Right now I am reading Decorating the tree and loving it like crazy! :D
Thank you! I do love those two (and have seen 'Arrow'). I'm just odd like that but I appreciate you giving my ship a chance and am happy to hear that you're enjoying the fics and the way I write them. I usually don't self-pimp but since you asked, I did. ;)

♥ That's so sweet. I also really liked the (admittedly brief) conversation they had about kids. The whole "Not now but maybe one day..." thing. :)

Yay! I'm glad you liked it. :)

I would've gone more into it, but I had a word maximum so I kept it brief. I am happy to hear that it worked for you anyway.

Thanks so much for reading and taking the time to comment! :D
