" Do you, Floriana Coletta Baudelaire, take this man to be your lawfully wedded husband, to have and to hold, to love and to cherish, in richness and in poorness, in sickness and in health, so long as you both shall live?"

Oh God, please say no, just say no, change your mind, just say no, please, please, please say no!

"I do."

Fuck

"And do you, Alexander Joseph Luthor, take this woman to be your lawfully wedded wife, to have and to hold, to love and to cherish, in richness and in poorness, in sickness and in health, so long as you both shall live?"

No, not today thank you, but it was good of you to ask

"I... well, I..."

"Lex, honey... I think the word you're searching for is do?"

"Thank you, darling." Bitch, rot in hell "I do."

*Where did that come from, you just agreed! Oh, now the rest of your life is going to be hell, well done, Lex, bravo!*

"If anyone here finds good reason why these two should not be joined in holy matrimony, speak now, or forever hold your peace."

*What, I committhat number of crimes, and no-one has the balls to even suggest that a Luthor shouldn't actually be allowed to get married?!*

"Well then, I now pronounce you" Oh no, please no, fucking hell. "Man... and..." This was not supposed to happen...

"Sorry, objection! Is that right?" And the whole congregation gasps as a tall youth stands in the middle of the room, red as a post box and looking around in virtual terror. "Lex can't marry her."

Oh, sweet salvation! Thank you Clark, I owe you forever... if only you meant it.

"And why, pray tell, can't I marry her, Clark?" *Don't look at me like that Kent, just give me a legally valid reason.*

"Because you don't love her, Lex, you don't!" *That's your reason. Well thank you for nothing. Everyone already knows I don't love her.*

"Lex loves me, he loves me with all his heart, don't you honey bun?" *Shut up Floriana, I already hate you enough. Honey bun, in front of everyone. Just grind me into the dust why don't you?*

"Actually, I don't" And again he congregation gasp as the blond slaps the most powerful man in America across the face.

"He loves me," says Clark, blushing furiously. His parents are going to see this, live on T.V. Hoping to God he read the signals right.

Everyone is speechless, and Lex has gone from pink to pale: chalky white with beads of sweat running down his scalp to his collar.

*I could just marry her. It would be a lot easier. I don't have to love Clark, I don't have to admit it. I'll never be president if I love Clark, say it in front of all these people. Curses curses, hard decisions. He's hanging by a moment here, if I say no...I'll just say no; I don't have to love him.*

"I don't love you Clark," shit, wrong decision! Backtrack! "I'm IN love with you. I always have been."

*Telling the truth feels surprisingly good. I don't think my tie is going to come off later, damn.* "And I'm in love with you, Lex," says Clark, stepping forwards hesitantly. The bride's mother is sobbing hysterically, and the father has fainted.

Lex raises himself onto the tips of his toes and wraps his arms round Clark's neck. Slowly, but very slowly, he brings his lips to Clark's, in the sweetest most chaste kiss MTV has ever seen. They break the kiss, and Lex pulls off his wedding ring, drops it onto the floor. Then he pulls off another ring, which sports the Luthor logo, and drops it next to the wedding band. He takes Clark's hand, and together they walk silently out of the chapel, and into the world.

*I'm falling even more in love with you...*

Hanging by a moment

I'm desperate for changing
Starving for truth
I'm closer to where I started
I'm chasing after you

I'm falling even more in love with you
Letting go of all I've held on to
I'm standing here until you make me move I'm hanging by a moment here with you

Forgetting all I'm lacking
Completely incomplete
I'll take you invitation
You take all of me...

I'm living for the only thing I know
I'm running I'm not quite sure where to go And I don't know what I'm diving into
Just hanging by a moment here with you

There's nothing else to lose
There's nothing else to find
There's nothing in the world
That can change my mind
There is nothing else...
There is nothing else...

I'm falling even more in love with you
Letting go of all I've held on to
I'm standing here until you make me move I'm hanging by a moment here with you

I'm living for the only thing I know
I'm running I'm not quite sure where to go And I don't know what I'm diving into
Just hanging by a moment here with you

Just hanging by a moment
Hanging by a moment
Hanging by a moment
Hanging by a moment here with you
