Author's note: Set during Tempus Fugitive, after Lois finds out CK=S but before they return to present-day Metropolis.
A future world.
A world without greed or hunger, without violence or hatred.
A world founded by the descendants of Lois Lane and Clark Kent.
I didn't believe the man claiming to be H.G. Wells at first.
His story- that of a time travelling writer from the early part of the twentieth century- seemed too far-fetched even for Metropolis. We've dealt with some strange things- invisible men, people returning from the dead, atomic space rats, not to mention a man that can fly- but he seemed to take the cake.
When he told me he knew about my secret life, I had no choice but to listen. He knew about me. I had to find out how- and what, exactly, he intended to do with that knowledge.
It feels like I tumbled down the rabbit’s hole.
And though now we're pursuing Tempus throughout history, and Lois is reacting even worse than I'd feared to the truth about me, and I have no idea how this is all going to turn out in the end, one thought keeps making me smile.
The descendants of Lois Lane and Clark Kent.
I always wanted kids. Up until now, I didn’t even know if it was possible. I’ve found out a lot more about myself in the last two years, and while knowing where I come from brought a certain amount of peace of mind, I thought it had also brought an end to this particular dream. After all, what are the odds that a Kryptonian and a human could have children? The word ‘astronomical’ is thrown around a lot, but in this case, I think it truly applies.
And yet the odds are apparently in my favour. Tempus, as warped as he is, is proof.
And Lois… I thought, given everything that’s been happening between us- Mayson’s death and the guilt I feel, and the arrival of ‘just call me Daniel’- I thought that I was losing her. Losing her after we’d barely begun.
As strange as this encounter is, meeting H. G. Wells gives me hope.
