Inspired by MouseRocks group challenge 100 Ways to Kill Superman Challenge and the Final List.

What would actually be in Michael's oft-quoted Lois Lane Manuel if canon Clark made such a book for Alt-Clark (after he found alt-Lois, of course)? Let me get us started...

Rule #1 - Never talk to Lois while making love. (you never know what stupid thing you say will cool her off.)

Rule #2 - Feed chocolate, often. More than once a day, preferably.

Rule #3 - Lois NEVER feels guilty.

Rule #4 - Always keep an eye on her, she's slippery.

Rule #5 - NEVER trust her when she says that she will stay out of trouble.

Rule #6 - Keep well hydrated with coffee, wine, and cream soda.

Rule #8 - Water her plants for her; they'll die otherwise.

Rule #9 - Even when Lois is wrong, she's right.

Rule #10 - When all else fails, refer back to rule #2.

Rule #11 - Expect Lois to be high maintenance, but she is worth it.

Rule #12 - Just be upfront about the whole Superman thing. It'll save you a world of headaches in the long run.

Rule #13 - Don't eat Lois' food. When in doubt, order out.

Rule #14 - She's top banana.

Rule #17 - Never get between Lois and a story.

Rule #18 - Don't let her hold any food intended for Bobby Bigmouth.

Rule #19 - No matter how ridiculous her hunch sounds, take it seriously. More often than not, she's right.

Rule #20 - Lois doesn't always follow her three rules to live by.

Rule #21 - Keep away from people named Dan.

Rule #22 - Keep away from people named Lex.

Rule #23 - Keep away from people named Maxwell - especially if they are a doctor.

Rule #24 - Remember. As fragile as your own heart is, so is her own. She's had a rough life.

Rule # 25 - Actually, don't trust anyone attracted to Lois. For some reason, shes a slime-magnet.

(Yes, I recognize the irony of that statement. [Big Grin] )

Rule #26 - If Lois says she's not up to anything, she's lying. She usually is. Feel free to stalk from a reasonable distance.

Rule #27 - In case stalking backfires, run. Or come up with lame excuse and run. If in Superman outfit, fake an emergecy.

Rule #30: Give Lois a break with the suit, she may find you a little too irresistible. Attempt to save all hints at nookie for the bedroom (and that includes all attempts at seduction.)

Rule #31: Failing that, make sure all original photographs and evidence of said nookie is destroyed immediately. Saving it in a little box in your bedroom may not be enough.

Rule #32: Wait until Wells gives you two the ok (I know you don't want to wait but unless you do you'll lose her and your worst fears will be confirmed.)

Rule #33: Make sure she gets to accept you as a friend, but don't forget to leave hints that you're more than a little attracted to her.

*sheesh these feel like they're much harder, don't they?*

--------------------
CLARK: No. I'm just worried I'm a jinx.
JONATHAN: A jinx?
CLARK: Yeah. Let's face it, ever since she's known me, Lois's been kidnapped, frozen, pushed off buildings, almost stabbed, poisoned, buried alive and who knows what else, and it's all because of me.
-"Contact" (You're not her jinx, you're her blessing.)

Harder than the Clark Rules? Or harder than killing Superman off? [Wink]


Rule #34 - Double Fudge Crunch Bars are your friend. Keep a box of them in your drawer for emergencies. (Don't tell Lois!)

Rule #35 - Lois does not like odd or strange gifts / art, especially sent anonymously.

Rule #36 - Do not make angry. Stay calm. No sudden movements. I know it will be tempting to fly off - don't!

Rule #37 - Do feed after midnight. Do get wet. (Repeat)

Rule #38- If sprayed with a love perfume, do not allow yourself to be in close proximity to her for extended periods of time.

Rule #38a-Consequences include long nights pacing your living room from ceiling to floor and an eventual breakdown in your desire to keep your friendship intact in favor of making love to her (and possibly losing her in the process.)

(I think I mean it's harder than writing the ways to kill Superman.)

Rule #39- When Lois really is on top (i.e. the boss) at work, don't let her either push you away or overwork herself. She really does need you now more than ever.

Rule #40- Do get her gifts but make certain that she knows they would only be the kind of gifts you can give (that way there is no mistaking who they came from.)

Rule #41 - 9 times out of 10 Lois will want to drive. Let her. She knows the basic traffic laws, but this does not mean she will follow them.

Rule #42 - Anytime Lois offers to take you out for pasta, accept, and enjoy any said consequences.

Rule #43 - Do not let Lois and Ellen or Sam Lane (or both) hang out together alone for longer than 1/2 hour at a time unsupervised.

Rule #44 - The only time she'll ever let you put her on a leash is when she's pretending to be your concubine. (Don't ask!)

Rule #45 - If Lois starts acting odd, and I mean bizzaro odd - check DNA and make sure she hasn't been replaced by a clone.
- #45A - If she has been replaced by a clone, see Rule #22 for who has probably kidnapped the real Lois.
- #45B - If she has not been replaced by a clone, see Rules #46 - #48.

Rule #46 - If Lois starts acting odd, and I mean bizzaro odd - check to make sure she doesn't have amnesia.
- #46A - If she has amnesia, see Rules #22 & #23.
- #46B - If she does not have amnesia, see Rules #45, #47, & #48.

Rule #47 - If Lois starts acting odd, and I mean bizzaro odd - her mind may be held hostage by Lex Luthor's son, Lex Jr., follow her and destroy his Neuroscanner machine to free her mind.
- #47A - If her mind isn't being held hostage by the Neuroscanner, please see Rules #45-46, & #48.

Rule #48 - If Lois starts acting odd, and I mean bizzaro odd - and you two have visited a Virtual Reality experience video game recently, double check that both of you have actually left the game.
- #48A - If you aren't stuck in a VR game, please see Rules #45-47.

Rule #49 - From the moment Lois agrees to marry you until the moment you consummate said marriage (see Rule #32)
- #49A - Do not let Lois out of your sight;
- #49B - Make sure said marriage happens ASAP, so that it does not get postponed by either of your ex's.

Rule #51 - Do not ever- and I repeat, EVER- expect or attempt to put Lois on a leash. She will almost surely never listen and the backlash will be fiercely painful.
~ Rule #51b - The only exception to this rule is if she is acting as your concubine. If you don't know what this means, then don't ask. [Razz]

Rule #52 - Lois enjoys a good costume, if the whole Superman-thing isn't a dead giveaway. Be patient with her no matter what she decides to wear- whether she's dressed up as a man or in a rather revealing harem costume.
~ Rule #52b - Lois in disguise usually gets good results, no matter her purpose. Consider yourself duly warned.

Rule #53 - Don't ever, under any circumstances, use the memory wipe kiss on Lois. You want her with all her memories at all times. (See Rules #22, #23, and #46)

Ooops, doubt post. I better come up with a #54 right and quick.

Let's see:

Rule #54: Never mention Lois's romance novel to ANYONE!

Yep, that will do. [Big Grin]

Hmmm. These sound like rules for living with Clark, not for living with Lois. I'll move them over to this other thread: Clark Kent 101: Rules to Live by

New Rule #56: If Lois gets a haircut, it may or may not have to do with you.
- #56a) It may be because her viewpoint on life has just changed, (because she found out she's in love with a man who moonlights in tights)
- #56b) Or it may have to do with the ease of getting ready in the morning.
- #56c) Either way, she prefers the little white lie, if you don't like it. If it looks horrible (which it can) and you're like me and you really don't want to lie, be as complimentary as possible without telling her you hate it. I prefer to give her the small compliment and then ignore it until she cuts it again into a more complimentary style.
- #56d) Don't forget: it doesn't matter what her hair looks like, she's still Lois Lane underneath.

New Rule #57: Always offer her a taste of your chocolate dessert. If she really wants it, she'll just take it anyway -- so you might as well give her a polite out.

#60 - When Lois says that she doesn't need or want you around, that's usually when she needs you the most.

#61 - When Lois is being threatened, it is perfectly acceptable to keep watch over her apartment all night long. Chances are, she'll need you close at hand.

#62 - Exposing Lois to your Kryptonian birth-wife will bring out intense feelings of jealousy.

#63 - To bring Lois out of her shell and start the process of friendship building, simply take to the Smallville Corn Fest.
#63a - Frequent exposure to the elder Kents is good for Lois.

#64 - Do not expect Lois to automatically be happy for you when you are nominated for an award and she isn't.

#65 - Lois plays every game to win.

#66 - Ethics according to Lois: It is acceptable for her to x-ray your butt to check out your underwear. It is not acceptable for you to x-ray her butt to check out hers.

I'll accept this one, but please keep in mind that Alt-Clark has lost his parents so there are no elder Kents for him to expose alt-Lois to. This list is:

quote:
Lois Lane Manuel if canon Clark made such a book for Alt-Clark (after he found alt-Lois, of course)
I'll keep it because this manuel would also be helpful for a Clark who has lost his memory. [Wink]

[Clap] [Lol] So true! I love how Clark assumes that Lois was just checking out his underwear. [Big Grin]

Just another reminder for the confused.

THIS list (that you are currently reading) is written by Clark Kent for Alt-Clark on best way to woo Lois, keep her happy & safe, and stop her from driving Clark crazy (if possible).

As opposed to:

THIS list which is (I'm assuming) the same for Lois Lane (or Alt-Lois) for managing Clark/Superman (alt-Clark).

(My assumption is based that I only started this list, not the other one. [Wink] )

I'm not picky. As far as I'm concerned,t he rules can either be from Lois to alt-Lois, or from the reader to "our" Lois. I'm more interested in rules which capture Clark's preferences/behaviours/quirks, preferably in a humorous fashion. Of course, not all rules would apply equally well to both Clarks. Anything mentioning his own love of junk food, for example, wouldn't work for alt-Clark.

Hmmm...Maybe *that's* why "our" Clark and "our" Lois get along so well -- they share a sweet tooth. [Smile]

Joy,
Lynn

#68 - Lois may hate the holidays, but that's only because she hasn't yet spent them with you. Only you can change her mind about them.

#69 - It really is the little things that count. Bringing her a perfectly made cup of coffee will impress her more than flying off to Paris for a plate of cheese, especially once she knows your secret.

#70 - If she challenges you to not use your powers for an entire weekend, it's not cheating to use them to save her life.

#67 has already been taken. I'm changing this one to #70.

Shouldn't that be #71, as #70 is also taken?

Anyway, I'll continue with rule
#72: If you need to stop Lois in rant mode, just kiss her.
#73: If Lois needs a new plant for her desk, get her a cactus.
#74: Never ever hide your boss in your closet - she'll get the wrong idea.
#75: Lois always gets her way. Don't try to stop her, just go along, and you two will be fine (with a little super help).
#76: If you like Lois with long hair, don't introduce her to Tank Wilson. [Embarrassed]
#77: Before you have to leave for NK, get Lois and fly her through a thunderstorm, that should keep her safe for a while.
#78: Keep her challenged.
#78a: If you want her to do something she wouldn't usually do, make it a challenge.
#79: Don't bet against Lois. She wins. Always.

According to my master list we are missing #71 (DC went back and changed her orginial duplicate #67 to #70), then #80. [Dizzy] Confused?

Okay, next submission should be Rule #71 and the next one after that #80.

It's a good thing Tank has an Interdimensional Time Machine, otherwise how would Alt-Clark know who he was? [Wink]

Rule # 71 Lois' favorate colors are red, yellow and blue. Go large on the blue.

She does not carry a pistol, but lock picks, a Swiss army knife, maybe a billard ball or two , a tennis racket,golf clubs,an assortment of board games and a stolen DA's beeper in her purse, which is why she travels Superman express. She will never get pass airport security.

It's probably why bad guys never want to be hit by her briefcase, either, and why she's so strong. [Wink]

I'll going to put this observation down as Rule #80.

Only 20 (or 21 if we decide to go to 101) left to go! Great job, everyone! [Dance]

#81 - If Lois starts to open up to you about her feelings, STAY AWAKE regardless of how tired you are at the moment. Trust us, it's worth it.

Rule #15: Chumpy is a word.
Yep.

#82: When both of you start talking at the same time, let Lois go first. (After all, you were raised to be a gentleman.)

#83: Before you move in together, install a smoke detector in the kitchen.

#84: Regardless of #83, Lois does rate 5 stars in the kitchen. [Sloppy]
#84a: She also rates 5 stars on the ceiling or any other place you can imagine.

I better stop now, before my mind is completely in the gutter.

Lois is in need of a good lock smith. Or maybe she should just close her windows.

This should be Rule # 85.

/pst. Why would Clark suggest that Lois should close her windows? Doesn't he like to visit her via the window? Or is he referring to Scardino coming in through the window? Or Ryan pushing her out the window? Just for clarification.

#85a Not to bar Superman, but because other men either try to sneak in through or to toss her out open windows.
