Below is the closest thing to a realization for SMWW as I am willing to go, and I had to include the entire bit. By the way, if you like this then I suggest that you stop reading about something as horribly written as SMWW and instead go read Memories to a Stranger written by The_Lady_Isis.

That doubt that sat, cackling, in my jealousy and Lois’s. I know Lois changed her doubt into faith a long time ago, but it’s never been a choice I could make.
They have forever, the two of them. And time heals all wounds. They’re fixed. Lois and I will be dead. They just are. They’re present tense for eternity. And in my head it was as simple as that. They would come together, after who knows how many millennia. Through mutual loneliness if not real desire. That may even have been true.
They won’t now.
Because neither of them will ever forget this moment.
I won’t say Clark gave up on her too easily because if that’s true then the entire world shares his guilt. But he accepted she was dead. He mourned her. He didn’t think about her every second of every day. He wasn’t constantly aware of the gaping hole her absence left. And Diana will never forget that. She’ll never forget the difference between us. While I am the pessimist, he was the one to suggest she wasn’t coming back. It makes me just a little bit sad. Diana knows he gave up on her. It hasn’t only removed what they might have; it’s damaged what they did.
I've read through all of this, and I have this to say about the entire Superman and Wonder Woman relationship. Most everyone, at one time or another, thought they went well together. Then most of us grew up past five years old and realized that their costumes matching wasn't really a good enough reason for them to be together.
Diana needs someone who is a challenge to her. She needs to be challenged intellectually and spiritually. She needs to have someone who is a contrast to who she is. This helps her grow as a character, and thus it helps the other person grow as well.
Clark... Clark needs someone to ground him. He needs Lois. She's his other half, and he needs to be with her. Lois is written a lot of different ways, in cannon, but most often it's in fan fiction we see some serious alterations. SM/WW either writes her as a back biting, evil, and manipulative bitch, or a near perfect first love that tragically dies. It's only through Diana, and her wonder
snatch (yes, that's an actual phrase used by some SMWW shippers), that Clark can move on. They've even went as far as to have Lois visit Diana in her dreams and tell her that she knows Diana can make Superman happy, and to please, chase him down, strip him naked, and fuck him like there is no tomorrow.
SM/WW is a chance to write about two characters, make them fuck for fucking sake, and have no rhyme or reason behind it. It's taking the characters and making them totally OOC.
Have I dabbled in SM/WW? Sure, I did when I wrote Wraiths. It was implied that Diana and Kal had been lovers for a short time. Basically she did what she did because she it was right, and she followed Kal blindly because of the power he held. Finally, when she came to her senses, she returned to Bruce who took her in with open arms, more or less. It painted Bruce as the bigger man. He knew Diana, his Diana, wasn't perfect, and she had made mistakes, but he still wanted and loved her regardless.
That's as close as I've dabbled in it, and I had to make Superman a psychopathic dictator of sorts. So, does it work? No. Plain and simple. End of story.
