So, I hardly ever watch Smallville, but I *do* hate Lana Lang. Her hair is the wrong colour and she's dramatically overly-twitchy and she was wearing bright pink toenail polish that time in the physio room after she got trampled by the horse (note to self: send that horse a fruit basket) and flirting with the angsty guy whose name I can't remember, and she's jealous of Clark and Lex and she toys cruelly with their emotions in the way of girls who wear too much pink and prance around doing mean spoiled little orphan girl things.
But. Suddenly there is an evil witch in the show. At least I think so. Lana's (future? potential? something?) mother in-law is apparently a witch. An Eeeeville witch who wears tailored suits in fire-engine red with leopard-print collars and heavy gold jewelry and was apparently burned/hung at Salem (which of course is ridiculous because no witches were burned at Salem) or something. Anyway. She's evil. She apparently has magic. Does things.
And of course I was not expecting the sudden presence of evil magic, and my literary instincts run *against* evil magic, so I was watching Smallville and crying Chloe your hair why gods why? and suddenly the indifferently-favoured boyfriend/fiance is unconscious and the evil witch is looming in the background...
*thunder, lightning* Me: RUN, LANA, RUN! SHE'S A WITCH! *pauses, thinks* Me: HEY, EVIL WITCH LADY! SHE'S OVER HERE! HIDING BEHIND THE STAIRS!
Thank heavens I regained my senses before I did something completely ineffective silly. ;)
