Summary: Chloe Sullivan had a normal-ish life before the circle and John Blackwell turned her life upside down and gave new meaning to the unexplained weirdness that goes on in Smallville. Now life's a witch, she's a part of a circle she's not too sure she wants to be bound to, and not only do they have to worry about Witch-Hunters, but unknowingly to them another circle is on the hunt too.

"Tell me about this blood binding ritual that Zatanna performed," Chloe said, changing the subject, staring up into his blues, refusing to show just how uncomfortable and aware his closeness made her. "I prefer to hear about it from someone other than her. What exactly does this blood binding mean? And how could she, a human, do it to me, a half Dragon, without my permission? Shouldn't that be impossible considering we're supposed to be superior or some crap like that?"

"In most instances, yes, but not when it comes to blood binding," Zod replied, pulling away and standing in that irritatingly straight, military way of his, hands clasped behind his back. "We're a superior speciesmeant to have subordinates. Zatanna Zatara knew this. Her family had been running from us for years, irritatingly successfully dodging our attempts to either capture and enslave, or exterminate them. With both her mother and father dead, she knew logically that it was only a matter of time before one or the other happened so she chose servitude on her own terms. I suppose she saw it as exerting what humans call "free will"; a servitude of her own choosing." Zod eyed Chloe thoughtfully before continuing. "It is a lifelong bond, and the more powerful the one being bound, the more powerful the bond. For a human, she and her parents were powerful; it made them very desired as servants. You have acquired a very desirable tool."

"She's a person, not a tool." Chloe narrowed her eyes on the Dragon in human form, disgusted with how the Dragons viewed humans. "Is there any way to reverse the binding if I don't want her as my servant anymore?"

"Of course." Zod nodded. "You can kill her."

Chloe's eyes widened. "Other than that?"

He thought it over for a moment before shaking his head. "No. Other than the death of the human, there is no way to reverse the binding."

Chloe slumped back hard against the wall, taking this all in.

"The binding was done without your knowledge and invitation, I was able to determine that much," he declared. "This affords you complete control over the human, more control than had you offered her a blood bind and she accepted. You should be happy."

Chloe groaned, staring at the Major. "You don't understand me or what makes me happy, at all."

He frowned at that.

They felt it immediately, Chloe and Zod turning to look in the same direction, narrowing their eyes as a spike of almighty power overwhelmed them. The blonde felt herself moving closer to the Major instinctively, becoming annoyed with herself immediately once she realized what she'd done, moving purposely away from him and moving towards the power, licking her lips. A roaring could be heard in the distance, not with their physical ears, but with some other sense.

Somehow, she knew that only she and Zod could hear that roar.

"Is that-?"

He nodded, eyes narrowed as he moved so that he stood next to her, head tilted to the side. He seemed to be sensing something, face impassive. "He's more power than before. Much more powerful."

The spike of power grew, and grew...

The two shared looks before Zod frowned darker. "He's molting."

"Molting?" Chloe turned her head towards him in confusion.

"Shedding his scales," Zod responded. "Whenever a Dragon has reached a certain power level, he or she will instinctively shed their scales and grow new ones, becoming a newer, more powerful creature." His eyes narrowed. "But this... this is..." He stepped forwards when the spike grew once more. "This is multiple moltings at once."

"What does that mean?" Chloe wanted to know.

"This means," Zod finally turned his blues on Chloe, "that Rao is becoming so powerful, I am not even sure my help will be of use to you in a fight."

Chloe stared up at up Zod, gulping, before they both turned to look in the direction of yet another spike of power as a roar rocked the heavens.

"What is it?" Jason asked, eyeing Davis as his friend stood rapidly, staring off into the distance in horror.

"You don't hear that?" Davis asked in a soft whisper, eyes wide. "Don't feel that?"

"Feel what?" Jason asked in confusion, sharing a look with Moira before standing and joining Davis' side, staring out of the mouth of the cave, not able to hear or sense anything. "What are you talking about?"

"The roaring," Davis whispered, eyes wide, hands raised to his ears. "The power."

Jason strained his ears to hear any sort of roaring but there was nothing in the wind and there was nothing that he could feel magically at all either. But he didn't dismiss Davis or what he was saying. How many times before had Davis been somehow connected to things that were going on? Especially things that had to do with Chloe? Davis was obviously more sensitive somehow, and while Jason didn't understand it, while he'd resented it at times, he respected and trusted this. "Tell me about it."

"You really don't feel it? Hear it?" Davis asked in confusion.

Moira joined them. "Nothing."

Davis eyed them oddly. "How?"

"Forget about us," Jason pressed. "Tell us what you can feel, what you can hear."

Davis eyed the two of them before clearing his throat and turning his attention back to something in the distance. "It sounds like some sort of large animal. It sounds in pain, but also – also menacing." He narrowed his eyes. "Every time I feel the spikes of power, they get stronger and stronger. It's unlike any magic I've ever felt before."

Moira sighed, looking up at the sky. "It has to be Rao."

Jason turned his hazels on her. "What are you talking about?"

Moira's blues went to Davis before turning to Jason. "What that boy is feeling is Rao growing stronger on the power returning to him a thousand-fold."

"Why would I be able to feel that?" Davis wanted to know, making a face.

Moira looked away, clearly uneasy. "That's not important. What's important is that Rao was a force to be reckoned with before he got a power-boost. Now he's going to be nigh impossible to defeat."

Davis' eyes narrowed. "I'll tell you if it's not important." He moved towards the woman. "Why can I sense this?"

Jason eyed Moira. "On that note, why can he sense Chloe when certain things happen to her? Because I'm guessing that somehow that's tied in to this."

Moira met Jason's gaze. "He needs to ask his mother that question, not me."

Davis' eyes narrowed. "My mother?"

Moira turned her gaze onto Davis. "What has Faora told you about your father?"

Davis paled. "That he was a one night stand. She never knew him."

Moira eyed the boy. "If she survived tonight, you need to have her tell you the truth about who your father is."

Jason froze, a sick thought entering his mind. "Davis is not a Balcoin, is he?"

Moira's lips twitched in amusement. "Chloe's the Firstborn, Jason. Of course he's not a Balcoin."

"So he's not her brother?" Jason wanted to be absolutely sure of this point. "That is not why he can sense her?"

Moira shook her head. "That is not why he can sense her." She sighed, looking around her cave. "It's time to stop hiding and return. The war is upon us and she's going to need us all there." Her gaze went to Davis. "If your mother is alive, be assured that she and everyone else are heading towards Smallville right now."

Davis licked his lips before storming towards his backpack and picking it up. "What are we waiting for then?" He slipped it on. "Let's get moving."

Jason eyed his friend, worried, before grabbing his own backpack and nodding. "Let's go."

"What. The. Hell?" Greg Arkin announced the second he saw the man standing behind Chloe. "What the hell? You said you needed some time to think! Think! Since when does thinking look like that?"

Chloe sighed, having known she'd face opposition. "I know this isn't going to be easy for any of us who have already met the Major, but we need to put aside our differences for the good of the community as a whole." It pained her to have to say this out loud, especially when he could hear her. "We need him."

"Him?" Faye wanted to know, standing in the doorway next to Greg, eyes wide, pointing to Zod incredulously. "He is the same guy who tried to kill us in the Shadow Realm, right? My eyes aren't playing tricks with me?"

"What's he even doing here anyway?" Cassie wanted to know, hands on her hips. "Who says we can trust him? That he wants to help us?"

"I don't want to help you," Zod informed her casually. "That's not my intention in the least bit."

Cassie motioned to Zod accusingly, eyes on Chloe.

Chloe slapped his chest. "You're not helping your case at all. They need to be able to trust you."

"I do not care if they trust me," he replied with a little sigh.

"I care." She narrowed her eyes at him. "I need them to trust you."

"Why?" Whitney finally spoke from where he leaned against the wall, eyeing the two of them silently. "Why is he here, why is he supposedly helping us, and why do you think we should trust him?"

Chloe turned to him, not exactly sure how much she really wanted to say about the whole "marriage" part, figured maybe the "Rao is horribly powerful" part was more important right now and should be the focus of the conversation. Maybe she was just being a coward though, or was in deep denial. "That – we should talk about inside."

Whitney nodded. "Let's go inside then."

Mikhail appeared at the door. "What's with the impromptu meeting out here?" He noticed Zod and raised an eyebrow. "You one of the General's guys? 'Cause he's inside if you're looking for him."

Byron peeked behind Mikhail, eyes narrowed on Zod. "I don't think he's one of the General's soldiers."

Zod eyed Byron with slight curiosity.

Chloe realized they were drawing too much attention and clasped her arm around Zod's arm, drawing his attention back to her. "We should do this inside."

Zod eyed the hand she had around his arm before his blues went to her face and he nodded. "I am in agreement with you."

"For once." Chloe snorted, frustrated with the fact that she couldn't be annoyed with him.

Zod smirked. "Let us hope that in the future, our being in agreement is a norm."

Diana eyed the two of them before reaching out and grabbing Greg's hand, giving it a little tug.

Cassie eyed Diana and Greg with her narrowed blue gaze.

Greg, just as oblivious to Cassie as Diana, gave the dark haired girl a little nod before turning to Zod and Chloe, expression highly disturbed. "Seriously! What. The. Hell?"

Well. Davis' weirdness is inherited?

Zod's terrible at reasuring people especially Chloe.

You could definitely say that Davis' weirdness is inherited.

Haha!!! He is! Though, to be honest, he definitely wasn't trying to be reassuring as he thinks this whole plan of hers is stupid and suicidal! lmfao

Is it evil of me to want Faora to be a Runaway!Ursa-Zod's-wife and Davis to be a Kidnapped!Zod's-son-Lor?

Okay, I thought it might be evil. Just sayin'.
29th-Sep-2013 05:27 pm (UTC)
Haha! Yes it *is* evil! But that's justs my evilness rubbing off on ya! lol

But I can confirm that Faora and Davis are *NOT* Ursa and Lor!

Okay, re-reading and thinking and now I remember that Zod said he'd never mated in human form before. Hmph.

So, since Canon!Davis was a creation of Zod and Faora who couldn't have children... I'm gonna guess that Davis (is a Luthor and) is who Lionel bargained for from Rao. Something like he has a link to the Firstborn or has a fraction of her power or has an unconquerable side that's part dragon.

Yep, new theory and sticking to it. Great job again!

Great so Rao is even more powerful, like he wasn't powerful enough all ready.

And why is Davis able to feel what no else can and why does it have to do with his dad? Is he a dragon/hybrid like Chloe? And if he is who is the daddy?

I can't wait for Chloe to tell the gang that she, well her dragon self is married.

Exactly lol
You will soon be finding out about Davis........
