    Summary

    Bruce has been to dozens of countries. Hundreds of cities. And now, here, bathed in radiant sunlight hundreds of miles from the ever-present gloom of Gotham, Bruce feels the way Vermeer must have felt when he found that girl with the pearl earring, or when Van Gogh looked in the mirror with those bandages on his head after he’d tried to cut off his own ear.

    It feels like a compulsion; a need. He has to record the image of this statue-still man sitting on the steps of the Florence Cathedral, because if he does not, no one else will ever see what he does right now in this instant.

    Or: the one where Bruce is an artist.

    Summary

    Kara huffs out a breath in frustration. “Every Kryptonian has a heartsong. And they’re beautiful, but when you listen to one on its own it feels like something is missing. It’s like...they have something like this too, right?” She gestures outward impatiently, and Bruce forces himself not to flinch at her casual use of they. “Only they have words written down instead.”

    “Soulmates,” Clark says, his voice strained.

    The word hits Bruce like a bullet through the lung. He keeps his face perfectly relaxed, his heartbeat calm and regular, as he realizes (too late, he's always too late) that he should have expected this all along.

    Summary

    'I don't understand how tax evasion relates to you going on a date with, do I need to remind you, Bruce Wayne.'

    Clark bit his tongue.

    'We're going to get married. It's a tax break, not tax evasion.'

    'Are you kidding me.' Lois stared. 'That's the stupidest thing I've ever heard.'

    ———

    Bruce asks Clark to marry him for tax reasons. Clark, against his better judgment, agrees.
