All fics here will be Clark/Lex
Ride & The
Ride 2: Spin Out by The Spike
Sex in a car. Ok, really hot sex in a car. Really, really hot. Bone melting hot. At this point you just might be picking up on the fact that it's pretty much a PWP. Still, I really liked it. I could just so see Lex in this. Even though the first fic is really from Clark's POV, Lex is just shining through it. I think there's supposed to be another sequel after this one. One that lives up to the request, actually come to think of it I think it was more of a statement of fact and intention, that Lex made at the end of the first fic. That one sentence alone nearly melted me right out of my chair. I shudder pleasurably just at the thought of that. I can't wait for the continuation. You know I got my Entertainment Weekly for Dec. 12 in today and the letters to the editor page for this week were focused on an issue from a while back that had an article about Smallville in it (and Tom Welling, Clark, on the cover). I nearly laughed out loud when I read one comment a reader wrote on how much chemistry Clark/Lana have. I think I did snort in derision. You've got to be kidding me. Where the fuck did they see that? Honestly, I can't see it one bit. Everyone I've talked comments on the Clark/Lex chemistry. Which has only been getting better. The ep 'Jitters', which aired recently, was just filled with so much chemistry I was floating along in slash heaven watching it. (John Glover was in that ep, so bonus. Made many of us happy getting to see him again.) We'd all been waiting for that ep and I for one was not disappointed in it. This fic really shows the chemistry between the guys off. Let's you inside Clark's head to see what he's thinking and feeling towards Lex. This one is so steamy. Fogs up your windows about as good as the boys probably did the windows of the limo. Definitely satisfying. I so hope Spike writes more of this one. I'm eagerly awaiting it.
Middle of Nowhere & The
Road Home by Meredith Lynne
Sex in a corn field. I'm sensing a pattern here. Are you? Well, it's like a reverse of Spike's fics, the sex doesn't happen until the second one in these stories. Killer Mutant Cows too. Which were just too funny an image. I guess if they run out of ideas for MotW on the show that would probably be next. Lex finds out a little about Clark's secret here too, but it's sortof unavoidable. Besides, I get the feeling Lex has a clue or two anyway. I don't know if Lex has found all the pieces yet, but he's definitely putting them together. Adding things up to see what exactly Clark is hiding. Seems like a lot of people in that small little town are hiding a good bit of things. I've lived in small towns that happens alot, but no matter how hard you try to hide things people always find out. Though I don't think my neighbors have ever been Killer Mutants. Still, not alot happens in these two fics. I feel like they are the build up to something else. Or a testing the waters in this fandom. They are very well written though. Which is always a big plus. I can't wait to see what Merry comes up with if she gets around to writing a longer fic. In fact I can't wait to see how Lex descends into evil on the show. I'm really looking forward to how they play that. Most interesting thing on the show to me. I think once we truly know that the fiction will become so much better. It's like we don't have a complete characterization of Lex until then. I'm sure MR will pull off whatever they throw at him beautifully. I can't wait. Till then we have fanfic. <sigh> Fanfic, Happy Fanfic.
Lionel walks in on CLex (that's how everyone has started referring to the guys, like they are one entity, fine by me) and sees more than he should. I know sounds pretty pervy. It's really not though. It's not like he really gets off on it or anything. More like he's filing this away for future ammunition. He seems like the kind of guy who would do that. Seek out knowledge about his kid so he could use it as ammo in a fight on a later date. Just like my grandmother. But, that's my angst, I won't bother you with it. It's plain to tell why Lex hates him and why Lex is going to turn out to be such a villain one day. Lionel seems all about strategy to me. Finding the right angle to back your enemy into a corner and win the battle quickly and as cleanly as possible. I think he's drilled that into Lex's psyche and as much as he doesn't want to be like he's dad, it's a constant fight with those firmly instilled teachings not to be a carbon copy of him. I think that's why he will turn out to be 'The Super Villain Extraordinare'. Sometimes you have to 'deny the battle' to win at all. You can't fight some things, you have to give up fighting them to be who you want to be. Trying to fight them the wrong way can turn you into an even worse form of evil. Back to the rec, though, I got lost in profiling Lex there. Lionel catches CLex in 'flagrante delicto' so to speak and it sets him to pondering about his son and how he can use this information later on. I'm seeing big time blackmail material myself. Things that touch your heart are the best weapons of choice. I also buy that Lionel wouldn't care if his son was gay or bi, just so long as Lex was quite about it. Put on a show for society, didn't parade it around in front of everyone. Kept up appearances and such. So I could really see him thinking like this one finding the boys together.
He Wants by Brancher
You could call sum this fic up as, 'Clark gets a clue'. During a party of Lex's, Clark realizes what it is that Lex really wants from him. He's shocked to say the least. This fic has probably been written over and over in various ways since the show began. This has to be one of my favorites within that theme. The scene where Clark ends up getting smacked upside the head by the big old clue bus, is so damn hot. So sensual. I must say Michael Rosenbaum is doing a damn fine job as Lex. I never paid much attention to him, until this role. He has really taken it and made it his own. It's not easy to take a character everyone knows is going to turn out evil and make him likable. There is some definite kudos deserved by both the writers and MR for pulling that off. Not only is Lex a likable, sympathetic character, he's damn hot too. I think it's the confident air with which MR plays him. Confidence and passion are the main two qualities I am attracted to in a man. MR plays that to the hilt. Even though this fic is told from Clark's POV, we see that hot and sexy Lexy come through in this. I really liked this 'Clark finally catches on' story. I definitely bought his reaction to it. Freaked out. Which is what I think his first reaction would be, shock. Then, he'd settle in to acceptance and start wondering. From there hot and sexy things would follow I'm sure. <wg> Mmmm...Happy Thought.
an Extraordinary Boy by Brenda Antrim
Fantasies, that's what this story is about. You know I'm on a couple of Smallville lists and one thing we can all agree on is that Lex is so after Clark's ass. Clark seems pretty clueless about that, in my opinion anyway. It's the first time a guy's had those intentions towards him so we'll give him some leeway. We all also agree that there is like no chemistry between Clark and Lana, none. She's like the perfect female love interest for such a slashy character, she's just no threat at all. A slasher's dream. No one I've spoken with buys the Clark/Lana thing at all. This show is one of the slashiest damn things I've ever seen. You should just see Clark beam when he sees Lex. His eyes get all sparkly, he blushes, and breaks out into this big old grin. A real one, not the fake plastic ones he shoots Lana. These are spontaneous, like he just can't help it. He has to grin when he sees Lex. Lex always seems to be undressing him slowly with his eyes, one article of clothing at a time. Even Omar the Smallville recapper over at Mighty Big TV sees the slash in these two. He's a straight guy for goodness sake. If a straight guys sees it, you know it's there. They never see these things. Sorry, got off on a Smallville rant there. It's taken over my damn brain. Anyway, this story is a look inside Lex's head that seems pretty true to me. He's a naughty boy with a dirty mind apparently. Anybody whose seen the way he looks at Clark won't dispute that. I have a lot of hope for this fandom. On list I've seem some wonderful writers pop up during chats, I so hope some of them produce some wonderful fics for us. I'm looking forward to seeing what comes from this fandom. No one can deny the slash in it and people are just flocking to it in droves. Ah, it's good to be a slasher when it comes to this fandom. You don't even have to struggle to find it.<sigh>
Series by Te
Warnings: Some BDSM in the 4th part.
Like I mention in the warning there is a little bit of BDSM in this one. It's not much though and I can see where Te was coming from. Clark's strength is something he always has to overcome. Learning to control his strength and be gentle during sex is something he will always have to strive towards. For Lex in the story, it's more of a power trip. Which the whole story is really about. Lex wants Clark and so he sets about a plan to get him. In the process he really gets more than he bargained for. Things don't always work out like you think they will. Best laid plans and all that. Pun not intended. In this one Lex is someone Clark can turn to when the world gets to be to much. Clark is a sweet diversion Lex uses to take up his time. While honing his manipulation techniques to a fine point in the process. Or so that's the way it starts out. I hope Te writes some more of this, I'd love to see where she might go with it. I guess it all depends on where the show goes. We're up to the third ep now and everyone is still wondering when we're going to see Lex the bad guy. He really hasn't shown up just yet. If the writers intend for us to hate him, they really aren't doing a good job of it. I kind of like him. John Glover plays his father. Mmmm...I'm odd. I think he's totally sexy. I've heard others say it too, so I know I'm not alone. It's gotta be a combination of the voice and his attitude. (And the hair, I like his hair. I've always had a thing about hair. I just want to run my fingers through JG's. Sorry, got lost in a moment there.) Same reason I find the guy who plays Lex sexy now. It's all in the 'tude. I think that bald head of Michael's is sexy.<sigh>
Ride by Viridian5
Someone really should have told Clark he shouldn't accept rides from strange men. This one is just a PWP, just some steamy sex in a car really. I've noticed Viridian has a thing for guys fooling around in cars. I've seen her write some DS fics with that premise too. In fact, I rec'd one last update. The fandom is just starting out really and already we have a wonderful little series by Te and a story by Viridian to add to the mix. Getting off to a great start. Every slash loving chick who's seen the show is just gushing over it. I hadn't seen it, but kept hearing everyone talk about how damn slashy it was. So I decided to check it out. Lucky for me, last weekend the WB re-aired the first two eps again. Let me tell you these two guys have such a slash vibe going on. Most of the times it's like, "Lana, who?" Their chemistry is off the charts, you hardly even notice that thing Clark is supposed to have for Lana. It's one of the slashiest shows to come up the pike in a long time. Over at Mighty Big TV the Smallville recapper just goes on and on about the level of slash on the show. He's a straight guy too. So if a straight guy picks up on it, you know it really is uber slashy. I just love it. I didn't even want to watch the damn thing, but the minute I heard about how slashy it was, I was so there. I'm sad that way. What I won't do for a good slash fix. Sorry I got off on a tangent there. It's a plot what plot, there isn't alot to say about the story. It was pretty much summed up when I said; it was by Viridian, it was good, and they had sex in a car. I had to write something to fill up the space.
