Summary: When Frost proves that Chloe isn't safe with him, she joins up with Kal, who refuses to be the minion of anyone. Doesn't help that Inquisitor Reporter, Lois, is searching for her cousin and getting close to the vampire secret.
WARNING: This story has a vampiric KAL EL, not Clark Kent. You know the difference. It's not just the name. So be ready for his attitude and behavior.

Chloe gazed at the vial which supposedly had the cure in her hands. It'd been something new being distributed in Metropolis, with most vampires destroying any they could get into contact with (such as Kal) but a very small group of others had instead chosen to take the cure and return to humanity (such as Lois). It was Karen Jansen, Lois' hematologist friend, who'd been able to patent this cure which was, admittedly mostly detested by vampires, especially the half-bloods. Those who'd turned had grown used to their lives and preferred how things were for them, and thus the fear of being human once more had turned them against the creator of it. Karen had had to go underground immediately after distributing the first batch, the laboratory she'd been working in at the time ransacked and burnt to the ground within the week.

The blonde had to admit that she was relieved that the vampires had this 'crisis' to keep their attentions and not fixate on the fall of the House of Frost. With Kal and Chloe the only vampire survivors they'd been able to fabricate a story in which they'd barely made it out alive after the big bad Daywalker destroyed LaMagra incarnate. The Temple of Night and the Bone Pits were completely destroyed and nothing could be salvaged from the wreckage which was quite fortunate as then no one would ever know that LaMagra had been sent back to sleep long before Blade ended Deacon's life.

The House of Frost had fallen, Deacon's minions scattered, no one daring to go back to the House since it'd been compromised and the dreaded Daywalker now knew of its existence. Most of the vampires had left and disappeared, all scared, all preferring to be as far away from the city of the blood-god killing Daywalker as possible. But there were some who stayed behind, and while they were all hiding in different places they'd sought out and found Chloe and Kal where they were staying at an abandoned apartment block. Despite how young he was the vampires had known how strong Kal was, and the fact that he'd survived the Daywalker when Deacon hadn't made him more fascinating to them. He was a natural born leader, and those leaderless minions (or at least the ones who weren't fighting for dominion of Frost's territory themselves) flocked to him.

Kal was obviously enjoying this tremendously, and had grand ideas on where to take things from here.

"Are you going to take it?" Lois asked as they sat together on her sofa in her Metropolis apartment.

"I don't know." Chloe admitted, gazing at the vial of cure and at the syringe sharing its plastic bag. "I don't know if I could go back to the person I was before."

Lois lowered her gaze. "I understand...I...I did transition to a vampire you know."

"You only fed from one person before the cure was available." Chloe retorted. "I've lost count of my kills."

Lois held her mug tightly. "Smallville 2.0 isn't going to take the cure, huh?"

"Not a chance." Chloe replied with a sigh, still eyeing the vial.

"Poor Mr. and Mrs. Kent." Lois whispered, shaking her head. "They're still looking for him, you know. Just like Uncle Gabe hasn't given up on finding you."

Her heart hurt at the reminder of her father, but was it enough?

And would it even work?

According to Lois, Karen had said that the cure wouldn't work for Blade because his genetic makeup was different from a vampire's, she'd even gone as far as to say that she wasn't sure it was even possible for there to be a cure for him. And if Blade was a Daywalker, and so was Chloe...didn't that obviously mean the cure wouldn't work on her either?

Chloe reached into the small plastic bag and pulled out the syringe, filling it with the liquid before straightening out her arm and injecting herself with the cure.

Lois gasped, eyes wide, sitting up straight, expectant, a smile growing on her face.

Chloe waited, waited for the pain Lois had described, for the feeling of one's fangs being pushed out of one's mouth to accommodate human teeth. Chloe waited for the burn, she waited for the pain in the joints, she waited...and waited.

And then she shook her head. "It didn't work."

"What?" Lois whispered, shaking her head. "No. That's not possible!"

"Obviously it's not a hundred percent accurate." Chloe declared, standing, having already known before injecting herself that this would have been the outcome. "I can't be cured."

"But every vampire who was human once can be changed back!" Lois cried, standing up as well.

You see, that was the problem, Chloe hadn't been 'human', and she wasn't a 'vampire'.

There was no going back for her.

"Obviously that's not true." She dropped the syringe and vial into the nearest trash can. "I need to leave."

"Cuz..." Lois reached for her hand and stopped her. "We'll find some way to get you back."

Chloe sighed and turned to Lois. "I was relieved."

"What?" Lois whispered.

"I was relieved it didn't work." Chloe whispered, running her tongue over her fangs. "I only injected myself because I knew it wouldn't work."

"You couldn't have known." Lois pressed. "Chloe..."

"Lois, I love you, and I love dad, everyone." Chloe reached out and hugged her cousin tightly. "Never look for me again."

"Chloe." Lois hugged her, voice breaking as she held tightly.

"Promise me Lois." She pressed. "Let me live my life, and live yours. Okay? And be there for my dad, he's going to need you to be there for him in my place."

Lois held tighter, choked.

Chloe hugged back tightly, silent tears making their way down her cheeks as she finally said goodbye to her old life.


Blade sat, gazing at Whistler's workstation.

He knew that he still had so much cleanup to do after the LaMagra incident, but he couldn't concentrate on the vampires here in Metropolis, even though they were now weak and vulnerable and easy pickings.

When he'd gotten back from the Temple of Night all those nights ago he'd gone to bury the remains of his mentor...and had found him gone.

Obviously the vampire venom had won out before Whistler could off himself...and now he was somewhere out there...one of the bloodsuckers he'd hated and hunted in life.

Karen Jansen had proved actually useful and had come up with a cure...and although Blade himself couldn't benefit from it he knew Whistler could.

He knew Lois had, he'd seen the brunette in the daylight the day before, but hadn't revealed his presence, still guilty for his weakness and for having tainted her in the first place.

And anyway, she wasn't important.

Whistler was.

Blade was going to find his mentor, wherever the vampires had him stashed, and he'd cure him...and if the cure didn't work, he'd do as he should have and he'd kill him.

Only once that was over he could concentrate on the vampires of Metropolis once more.


"So, it didn't work, huh?"

Looking up as she exited Lois' apartment, Chloe wiped at her face, surprised to find Kal leaning against the outside of the building waiting for her. "How did you know I would try it?"

He snorted, turning his head towards her and passing her a helmet.

She made a face, slowly accepting the helmet she hadn't noticed before, before her gaze went to the ducati he was walking towards. "Since when do you have a motorcycle?"

He didn't answer, instead straddling the seat as he started the engine.

"Where exactly are we going?" Chloe wanted to know, amused at the helmet given the fact that should she receive a head trauma she would be fine...nothing a little blood couldn't cure...but she secured the helmet on nonetheless and climbed on behind him, arms going around his waist.

"Better hold on tightly." He declared. "I like to go fast."

And with that he sped into the street.


Sitting in the darkness of the run down, abandoned house she was squatting in, Lana gazed at the syringe with cure she'd managed to procure. There were only a few of these syringes around, most of the vampires who found them destroyed them immediately, but she'd managed to get her hands on one and had been eyeing it for days now. It wasn't the nights that made her tempted to go back to being human, it was the days. She hated having to hide from the sunlight, being forced to remain in basements or cellars, hated the confinements. Ever since the fall of the House of Frost things had quickly gone to the shitter, and she didn't know how much longer she could handle this.

She couldn't do it, couldn't live the way she had since Deacon's death.

"This is a dump."

She gasped and looked up, eyes narrowing at the vampire who'd managed to sneak up on her. "Who are you?"

The male raised an eyebrow, pointing to his house's tattoo.

Lana's eyes widened as she stood, pocketing the capped syringe with the cure. "You're from the House of Damaskinos."

"And you're from the newly fallen House of Frost." He nodded, tall and intimidating. "The name's Reinhardt."

"Lana...Lang." She cleared her throat, unsure as to why he was there.

"So..." he leaned his hip against the wall, smirking at her. "I heard you've seen the Daywalker."

"Blade." Lana made a face, nodding, more intrigued than before. "Briefly."

"How about we go out for some dinner and we get to know each other?" He offered, lighting a cuban cigar and letting out some puffs of smoke.

Lana pressed her hand against the cure in her pocket, before her curiosity gave in and she smiled, flashing a glimpse of viper-like fangs. "Dinner sounds great."


"Why exactly are we here?" Chloe wanted to know, curious, gazing up and down the darkened streets.

"Isn't it perfect?" Kal asked, gazing up at a building.

Chloe joined his side and gazed up at the large Clocktower. She sent him a sideways glance, not exactly sure what this building was perfect for, but as her gaze returned to it she had to admit that it had some charm. "I like it."

"Good." Kal rubbed his hands together. "Because if you didn't like it you would have lucked out."

"How exactly?" Chloe asked, curiosity growing. "What exactly is this place?"

"Tsk tsk, Miss Sullivan. I'm surprised you haven't figured it out already." Kal grinned, placing an arm around her shoulder and using the other to span in front of them, displaying the Clocktower. "It's our new home."

"New...?" She turned to look at him, eyes wide.

"I made a...withdrawal...from a bank in New York and paid for this place in full today." He replied, reaching into his leather jacket's pocket and pulling out a large set of keys. "Of course I'm going to need you to take charge of handling the renovations and upgrades, and I leave our security system to your discretion as well. I'll be busy with securing minions, just a few to start out with, a few familiars as well, and start making a name for the House of El."

"The House of El." She echoed, realizing that this was something he'd had planned all along, and only mildly annoyed that he hadn't shared it with her until now. "Have you figured out what your tattoo will look like?"

"It will be the symbol of my family." He replied, pride obvious in his tone. "Our name shall never be forgotten now."

She gazed down at herself before raising her inner wrist. "I think I'll get it here. Where will you get yours?"

His gaze went to her as his hand raised to clasp easily around her smaller one, his finger trailing over the inside of her wrist. "I like this."

Chloe gulped, her heart skipping a beat at the soft, barely there touch.

Kal brought her hand and laid it over his heart. "But I like this too."

Chloe's wide gaze rose to his, hating herself for the blush she could feel creeping up her cheek. "I like this too..." she suddenly turned crimson and shook her head, pulling her hand free. "I mean I like the idea of you getting your tattoo there." She nodded as she cleared her throat and folded her arms over her chest, turning to look at the Clocktower. "It makes it seem more personal, especially considering you say that it will be your family's symbol."

Kal watched her with a knowing smirk.

She ignored him, eyes on the Clocktower.

He passed her the large key ring with all the keys to the Clocktower. "You're going to have a lot of work ahead of you. We both are." He turned to gaze at the Clocktower as he slipped his arm around her shoulders once more, satisfaction emanating from him. "This is the beginning of our Empire."

She gazed at him, surprised that he'd said 'our' and not 'his', but she liked it...it made her feel like he planned on their being together and working together for years to come...something she hoped was true because eternity would be lonely as hell without him.

"Don't think I'm going to let you slack off on your share of the work." He replied warningly, gaze still on the Clocktower. "This is going to be our Home, and I will accept nothing but your best from you, and if I feel that you are not giving all you can I will call you out on it."

She smiled, her fingers closing over the keys as she smiled at him. "Home." Her gaze went to the Clocktower. "I like the sound of that."

He gazed down at her. "Ready yet to hear what I call you?"

Her green gaze met his and she was tempted, truly tempted, to finally give in and ask what his petname for her was...and yet she just shook her head. "Not yet."

He paused before nodding, giving her a little squeeze. "Let's go see inside."

Excitement built inside of her as she nodded, grinning as she leaned into him. "Let's."

Together they walked towards the Clocktower, their new home, and the first step towards their future.

It's the Clocktower from the series, yes :) I thought it would be the perfect place to have the House of El...with some modifications of course!

Thanks for reading and enjoying! I write for you all! If it wasn't for my readers and reviewers and their faithful love I would have given up fanfiction a long time ago! *hugs*

2nd-Nov-2011 10:30 pm (UTC)
Glad! I wanted to give it an ending and yet tease for the next segment! Plus, I love Ron Perlman/Reinhardt...and couldn't help but inject him into the fic just a little earlier than planned :)
2nd-Nov-2011 10:23 pm (UTC)
Yay! Awesome ending. I really enjoyed reading this fic. I'm not a huge Wesley Snipes fan, so I have a hard time watching the Blade movies, but you made it fun and enjoyable to read. Thanks for that. I'd be interested in a sequel, but the way you ended it was great too.

Wonderful job hon!

2nd-Nov-2011 10:32 pm (UTC)
My grandmother was a great Snipes fan so I so many of his movies (none that I can remember now) but the Blade ones stuck with me for my love of vampires!

I wanted to give an ending that could satisfy yet tease as well, so glad it delivered!!!
2nd-Nov-2011 11:18 pm (UTC)
Oh come on you mean I have still got to wait to find out what his nickname for her is....! ;)

Absolutely loved this story, I am sad it has finished but excited to wait for the next part thanks so much for writing and sharing your wonderful ideas :)
3rd-Nov-2011 01:57 am (UTC)
Yep, you still do. Why you may ask? Because I'm evil like that ;)

Thanks for enjoying and reviewing!
3rd-Nov-2011 01:14 am (UTC)
Cute ending. Does he call her his one or something. I really can't wait to find out what it is.
3rd-Nov-2011 02:00 am (UTC)
It'll be something for the future...too soon for it right now. Chloe just is not ready. :)
3rd-Nov-2011 01:05 pm (UTC)
I can see you're gonna do Blade 2 as well! Or you alluded to it at least, I so hope you do it! Because I can't wait to see Nyssa, Nomake (I <3 Luke Goss!), Snowman, Priest and, of course, Reinhardt. And I guess Scud and Whistler as well lol And, apologies to Kal, but Chloe/King was just lovely and made me very happy (perhaps she's the one that gives him the cure?) so I have to admit I'm excited to see what'll happen if you do a third part. And the clocktower and House of El! NICE!
3rd-Nov-2011 01:17 pm (UTC)
Luke Goss...there's one man I loved without even realizing it (I loved him in Blade 2 and in Hell Boy 2 without realizing he was the same guy).

Ah yes, Scud (Norman Reedus) gotta love that man...especially on the Walking Dead! *sighs in a fangirlish happy way*

Chloe will probably not be the person who gives King the Cure :(
3rd-Nov-2011 01:23 pm (UTC)
Luke is just utterly fabulous in everything he does! And did I seriously mispell Nomak in my rush of girlish excitement? Wow, I seriously did lol Anyway, I always loved Priest because he's Tony Curran and I adore him in basically everything he does. Snowman is just awesome, a freaking ninja is what he is. And Chloe no give King the cure? :( That makes me a sad panda, but I'm certain you'll have someone nifty give him the cure.
3rd-Nov-2011 02:15 pm (UTC)
Ai-yi-yi! This was a fun series, especially the Kal/Chloe friendship that was light years better than the last few seasons of Smallville. I have to say, I still hate Clark Kent of Smallville so much that I can't pull for Kal and Chloe to be romantically involved even in such a changed environment as your series, but I like their camaraderie. Sign me up for Team Hannibal! (Our tattoo is an elephant wearing a crown and can only be applied to the buttocks. It brings new meaning to 'showing your ass'.)

And am I evil for wanting Chloe-moving-on and getting close to Kal to turn up pregnant from her floor show with King? What an awesome complication! 'See, total stranger - and thanks for making that incident less than completely horrifying - I know that non-pureblood vampires don't have to worry about birth control except with rare humans (Deacon was Blade's bio dad, OMG!), but, well, I'm special, and, well... Oops?' Bwahahahaha!

And I have to further confess that you RULE my Netflix queue! Seriously, the next spaces are taken up by the Blade series of movies completely because you wrote this fanfic series. And I'm currently Finally watching the Twilight movies, which makes me go back and re-read Imprinting and the Wolf in Hiding series, plus the early Smallvillian patient stuff. And we already talked about how seeing Constantine's Scary Androgynous Gabriel made your Chlopocalyptic series much more terrifying. I have to admit that I wouldn't have watched Constantine for a loooong time if you hadn't written it into your series. And I've even hunted down the Narnia movies to watch for your Eternal Queen series' accompaniment, eventually. Not to be all stalky or fangirlish, but you're just such an amazing crossover writer that I feel the need to see the original to compare.

Keep writing and having fun!
3rd-Nov-2011 02:27 pm (UTC)
The Smallville Chlark has been terrible, hasn't it? Even friendship-wise. Its one of the reasons why i stopped watching that series and during the last season I only watched the few episodes that had Allison in it to see how they'd send her off.

Haha! I love this Team Hannibal tattoo!

Just a BIT evil...but I'm VERY evil so I wouldn't find it wrong! lol

Oh my. I feel...powerful! *flexes imaginary muscles* This is extremely humbling and I'm glad that you're giving the crossovers (and their origin source material) a chance!!!!!!! Thanks so very much!!!!
3rd-Nov-2011 06:48 pm (UTC)
I loved this cross-over series!
So... is it a Kal/Chloe ship hint there at the end or what? 'Cause here to hoping it isn't, because in my mind Kal's nickname for Chloe is 'sister'. For whatever reason, I think she should have a thing with Drake from Blade Trinity... Even if ultimately that ends in his dieing, I can just see it happening.
3rd-Nov-2011 09:00 pm (UTC)
Heads up was that it definitely is a hint towards Kaloe, sorry :( But that isn't to say there won't be some Chloe/Drake ;)
15th-May-2012 05:34 am (UTC)
Damn, this sequel was so fucking good!!! I loved how you incorporated Lois into the plot - I especially love the twist with her being friends with Karen and there during the hospital scene when Blade shows up. I also loved the Chloe/Lois reunion and how Chloe went into Bloodlust to save her cousin from those creeps. Plus Lois helping Chloe (and Kal) find/set up a meeting with Blade was pretty awesome too =)

The first meeting between Chloe and Blade was everything I hoped. I loved how annoyed/unnerved he was by her and her attitude – it had me grinning the whole time :) I also liked how he didn’t find out that Chloe (and Kal) are Daywalkers.. yet. Really neat too that he feels a connection, or something to them, like Chloe first felt to him.

The Chloe/Kal in this sequel was soooo fabulous! I love how Kal used his whorish ways to get information and how him and Chloe worked together to plan Deacon’s demise. Also the sexual tension between those two during their fight (with Lois watching. Ha!) was seriously HOT!! Poor Chloe though, the girl is still pretty oblivious to Kal’s attraction... and his jealousy over “cabana boy”...

And can I say how much I love you for adding Danica Talos and her group, including the ultra sexy Hannibal King? Cause I freaking gasped out loud (and then started smiling like an idiot) when I read that part! *squeals* Such a brilliant twist! You truly are the awesomeness person ever! ;) I did feel absolutely horrible about Chloe being forced to “perform” for everybody, but it at least was with Hannibal and made Deacon (and Kal) super pissed/jealous. Ha!! I also really like your idea of Danica coming to Deacon/Chloe to decipher her things and how it sets everything up for Movie 3. I wonder what Chloe will find out from the copies about Drake?

Deacon was badass in this and I loved the way you had him killed off. Go Chloe! And Kal and Blade too cause they helped :P You also totally shocked me with the possibility of Chloe maybe being able to get pregnant and have vampire/Daywalker hybrid children. Holy Shit!! That was a HUGE ass twist! I wonder if Kal knows and what he does/will feel about it? Also the possibility of Chloe being pregnant with King’s kid has me almost hyperventilating... I soooo want to know! I’m guessing probably not, but man the idea of it and how it would fuck with Movie 3 is making me almost salivate. lol. You never know you could always use the twist in another story another time =) Plus I just thought about it, how will Drake react to the possibility of Chloe being able to give him a child? OMG!! Kal hide Chloe fast!! *grins*

Great twist with Lana and Reinhardt at the end. I love to see what happens with Lana getting mixed up in the House of Damaskinos and how she, Chloe and Kal mix with the plot of Movie 2. I’m personally really liking your evil!peppy!social-butterfly!Lana. She’s pretty interesting and I’m actually glad that she hasn’t been killed off.

The end with Kal and Chloe was simply perfect. I LOVE the idea of them starting their own House (House of El for the win!) and I’m totally thinking Kal’s mysterious petname for Chloe is, his One. At least that’s what I’m guessing :-) Honestly though, the heat between those two during that very short scene was blazing. And poor Chloe’s in total denial like always :( Hehe.

Anyway, this story was just spectacular and I’m really excited to see what you do with Movie 2 (I *adore* movie 2 and all the male hotness in it). No pressure though, this was a good ending and I’m just a greedy fan who wants more, like tomorrow :-) Thanks for writing this awesomely unique series!!!

Edit for totally forgetting to wish you happy birthday, so HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!

Oh god...I'm in love with your icon! So friggin beautiful!!!!! <3 . <3

Considering that every single time Chloe's gone missing Lois has gone to find her...I felt it fit her character perfectly...and that it made sense she'd mostly take up the bulk of the action (not sciency) part of the plot Karen had...with a little more because this is Lois we're talking about! lol

Yep! Chloe and Kal are keeping the Daywalker thing close to their heart and not letting it become common knowledge until it was more useful.

Oh yeah. For right now it's actually Chloe who just really doesn't see Clark as a man...too long being treated like a sister has rubbed off on her in a bad way!

I didn't want Danica and her people to just APPEAR in the third one whenever I wrote it, I wanted a little introduction to their characters...but which would still fit into the plot of this story :) I especially wanted backstory to Hannibal and Chloe!

Haha! It WOULD fuck with Movie 3...wouldn't it? lmfao HAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Yes! Kal DEFINITELY needs to hide that woman!

Oh Lana, I'm finding I love her as a vampire. And the thought of a fling with Reinhardt is delicious for me ... mostly because I love Ron Perlman.

Yeah! The House of El is definitely going to be something! With Chloe and Clark as the heads? It'll be unstoppable :P

Thanks so very much hon!!!! <3
