24th-Sep-2009 10:54 pm What You Sow by Plnunn (NC17)
Fandom: SMALLVILLE
Pairing: Clark/Lex
Length: epic novel length, 808K, 144,702 words
Author on LJ: [livejournal.com profile] plnunn
Author Website: bishonenworks, fanfic and fanart, original fic, and art
Why this must be read: no rec marathon of mine would ever be complete without Plnunn!
She, bagheera_san and xparrot are like the unholy trinity, whose characterization of Clark and Lex has never failed to drive me totally and completely crazy!!
its like , they are *better* (better being a relative term) than on the show, but lightyears from being wholly likeable.
One of Plnunn's fic characteristics is like dissecting everything, both in finished stories as well as current WIPs, things that are like being glossed over in the show, or conveniently forgotten.
I read her clex fics, despite more often than not hating clark and lex. They are so very human, they make mistakes, make wrong assumptions and conclusions, are more often idiotic than not, but they are still larger than life, and their errors are bigger, and hurt more and , they try harder then on the show...and ALL ITS SO MADDENING! *hits them*

all in all, Plnunn not just has lots of new Clex WIP going on, her entire SV work, the fics and the clex comics and art etc (sample on her homepage are entirely brilliant!

21st-Sep-2009 11:31 pm forever united here, somehow by fiercynn (PG)
Fandom: SMALLVILLE
Pairing: Clark/Lex (or maybe Clark/Lex/coffee)
Length: one-shot
Author on LJ: [livejournal.com profile] fiercynn
Author Website: -
Why this must be read: short piece, but amazing Lex characterization! And I like Clark's voice , too!
Neither Lex nor Clark are being changed into something completely OOC, and turned into more *loveable* personas, yet, this works! with Lois! ohh, and well, there is coffee :DD

"Not the point, Lex," Clark sighed. "I never let myself think about it before, but that's why there's this whole – whatever – between us now, isn't it? We've always been so similar, in so many ways. Similar in our differences, even – we're not like other people, and we must've found common ground in being outsiders. We're both secretive and fairly prone to lying. And apparently we're both obsessed with finding out each others' secrets."

"Do you have a point to go along with this?" Lex asked.

Pairing: Clark/Lex
Length: 160K

Why this must be read: This! I mean, basically, the love story of Clark and Lex is the one of a huge and larger than life obsession, whether in hate or love.
They can't let go of each other, in death or alive.
But what if you take this central, core mutual obsession of them, that is also the core element of 99% of the fanfics, away? How would Lex be, and how would Clark react???
yup. Right. What if Lex...

more under the cut, plus big spoiler for the story, but its also vital for why I rec it , its an excerpt that kinds of telling you everything and nothing...  )

HAHAH, TAKE THAT CLARK!

Why this must be read: my oldest slash fandom combined with one of my new found love :D SV and Torchwood, that is a match made in heaven!
When I was first reading this story in 2008, I did know nothing about TW, but boy did that changed this year.
Rereading the story, I can appreciate all the humour and banter even more, now with having all mental images of the team available!
its a perfect make-me-feel good fic! clark and Lex, as they ought to be, helping each other, trusting each others, and finally, *know* each other!

Why this must be read:
Now to something completely different, well, its still a futurefic with clex, but not one of that makes-me-feel good kind. This is not some happily ever after, but rather...... A disturbing look into what or how Clark could turned out, if he tries to save the entire world, and is facing with the reality, that its impossible to save everyone. Unrealistic. Failures, combined with his guilt, and with Lex? descent into madness, hot, but fucked up. Literally.

Author Website: Sorrel fanfic site: Dream-On
Why this must be read:
Usually, I dislike fics, that have a rather ambivalent or open end, with no real resolution.
But with this one? NOPE, not at all.
Its perfection, sheer and utter perfection with the non-answer at the end.
I have never come close in any fandom to such a fic again, where I could have whole-heartily said: yes, I do not need more.
Clark and Lex remained who they are , and what they ever will be. And its up to the reader to decide on their own, to make up their own mind, what they could be. I know, its sounds all cryptic, but really you MUST read this one!
One of my most favorite one-shot futurefic.

Fandom: SMALLVILLE
Pairing: Clark/Lex
Length: 132 K
Author on LJ: -
Author Website: Coren Lee fanfic site
Why this must be read:
Too many fics depict Clark as somewhat dim, overtly innocent and not up to par with Lex' wit and IQ.
Well, I am not lying, I do like my naive and innocent Clark, but Coren is one of the few writers, who is writing Clark as an absolute equal partner to Lex, without having him to loose his charms!
And just seeing how they both worked together to totally outwit Jonathan Kent?? haha, priceless!

two excerpts from the story, second excerpt is spoilery for the story  )

this is the kind of future Superman I want to see: not lots of pathetic heroic platitudes and excuses, but a fair dose of effective pragmatism.

Fandom: SMALLVILLE
Pairing: Clark/Lex
Length: one shot, coda
Author on LJ: [livejournal.com profile] yakkorat_fics
Author Website: -
Why this must be read:
after the long previous fic recs, I thought, you might cherish some shorter fic, for a change :)
This has been the author's first and so far only SV fic, but what an entrance into clex!
The way she was able to capture Clark's feelings as I thought, they should have been in that SV episode "Spell" , is simply perfect!

or the briefest moment, Clark allowed himself the realization that Lex might have stayed at that piano, disregarding hunger, thirst, exhaustion, until one of them consumed him... and he died. Clark was unprepared for the surge of grief that struck him then, bitter and nauseating and stinging like Kryptonite. Contemplating a world without Lex Luthor made him feel like all the wind had left his body in a rush. And I was worried about a stupid interview.

And why Lex? Again? God, why not him for once? Lex, Lana, Chloe, his parents... It was always everyone he cared about. Everyone he loved. As if somehow the cosmos knew how best to twist the knife. Lex. It would have to have been Lex. Nothing could be worse.

Now wait just a minute. When had Lex become the single most important person in Clark's life?

5th-Sep-2009 06:21 pm Contingencies by xparrot (PG-13)
Fandom: SMALLVILLE
Pairing: Clark/Lex
Length: 196K or 35,156 words
Author on LJ: [livejournal.com profile] xparrot
Author Website: X-Magical: A Fan Page
Why this must be read: xparrot. She wrote the SV classic "achilles' heel", and then left SV for FUCKING 5 years!!
Thank god, she came back, and *what* a comeback it was!!! 2007 was SV-clex wise definitely her year, I had a hard time to decide which of her fics to choose, coz well, there is a limit on the rec ;)
But this story. I did not choose because of the plot. Its great, but no, its rather been, the characterization of both, Clark and Lex, they are down to the core who I thought, they were and at the same time, who I wanted them to be. Hence, if the characterization is *that* good, I usually don't even care, if the main character was to die. Coz its still like, consistent :D

Lex's eyes changed. Clark couldn't say how they did, only that something shifted in those colorless recesses, like water moving under ice. "I'm going to die," he said.

Clark barely felt his mother's hand on his shoulder. He could bear the weight of a building falling on him; the insignificant pressure of a human touch was only noticeable if he concentrated.

"There must be something..." Martha began.

"There's five hours," Lex said, not any differently than he had said anything else. "Maybe as many as six. My immune system is compensating better than average, but not enough to make a significant difference."

Hi! I'm Ender and I will be your reccer for Smallville for September.
SV fandom, and especially Clark/Lex were the main reason, why I was starting to be active fannish-wise, after years of lurking :)
So, driving crack_van this month seems like a perfect excuse to revisit some of my favorite stories! I hope, you will enjoy them along the way with me!

There are precisely twenty-nine people lying in Smallville cemetery because of the meteors, because Clark failed to keep them breathing. Sarah will make an even thirty. They'll lay her finally to rest in same dark earth that holds her latest three victims, just a few plots away from her first: Derek Morello, one time Smallville High soccer goalie and captain of the Math-letes. Future husband of Sarah Johnston, though everyone had scoffed at that. No one finds their destiny in high school.

This is my last rec of the month.  I hope you enjoyed the journey as much as I did.  If you want to become a driver for the SV fandom yourself, go here to sign up.  There's only one person signed up after me, so if you want to keep this van on the road, the fandom needs your help.

Fandom: SMALLVILLE
Pairing: Clark/Lex   
Length: 3,251
Author on LJ:  [livejournal.com profile] roxymissrose  
Author Website:  none, but all her fics are compiled at the top of her LJ.
Why this must be read:  Miss Roxy has so many epic stories, that you might wonder why I'm reccing a short PWP.  Well, I've been reccing a lot of very long fics this month, with very heavy, sometimes dark, themes and thought it would be nice to have something shorter and lighter.  This story is very old school clex, but even though it's a PWP, Roxy takes Clark's age into account.  The Clark here is innocent, but not naive.  Lex's voice is wonderful.  He's calm on the outside and spazzing on the inside.  Some of his thoughts during the course of this fic are hysterical, and I'd advise you not to be drinking anything while reading.  Roxy has an off-beat sense of humor that is used to great effect throughout this marvelous story.

29th-Aug-2009 11:19 pm Closer by nonotthatone (PG-13)

Fandom: SMALLVILLE
Pairing: none - Clark & Lex friendship fic   
Length: 7,956
Author on LJ:  [livejournal.com profile] nonotthatone 
Author Website:  none
Why this must be read:  This story asks the questions:  What if Clark hadn't been able to reverse events after Lana died in Reckoning and she stayed dead?  Where does that leave Clark and Lex?

The answers lie within this wonderful story.  The author creates a very believable scenerio for both men, in how they might react to Lana's death and how it changes them.  It's an emotional, messy process, not easy at all.

Jonathan and Martha appear in this story as well, and their characters are spot on too.  It's a great AU of this episode, and a take I've never seen before.  I hope you'll head on over to enjoy it.

29th-Aug-2009 09:09 pm Can't Find My Way Home by rednihilist (NC-17)

Fandom: SMALLVILLE
Pairing: Lex/Bruce Wayne 
Length: ~250,000 words 
Author on LJ:  [livejournal.com profile] rednihilist 
Author Website:  none
Why this must be read: I've labeled this NC-17 because there are a few moments in this novel-length story that earn that rating, but they  very few and far between.  This AU epic is set around the premise of Lionel finding baby Kal-El in the corn field instead of the Kents and how that changed things.  It did not change things for the better for poor little Kal-El - or Colin in this story, Lin for short.

From start to finish, this is one of the best constructed stories I've ever read.  The author kept her characters consistent and believable in their behavior; she kept the story on track and didn't leave any glaring holes in her plot.  The story was kept moving at a good pace and I never got the feeling of being bogged down as I read it.  She has some wonderful original characters and a great Bruce Wayne.  So take some time in the next week to enjoy this terrific story.

Length: 7,945
Author on LJ:  [livejournal.com profile] loqia 
Author Website: Badfic
Why this must be read:  Starting where Jitters ends, this fic is told from Jonathan Kent's POV and is in second person.  This is a Jonathan I can get behind 100%.  His behavior is very much OoC in this fic, but the difference is explained in why he's doing it, or...at least why he's doing it at first.

Vidder on LJ:  [livejournal.com profile] talitha78 
Vidder's website: None available
Why this vid kicks ass: This is a fantastic look at the character on Smallville that so many of us tune in for, Clark Kent.  It's his journey as a man and a hero, a look at what he's searching for.  talitha78 incorporates so many clips into this vid, clips from all eight seasons, and she does it seamlessly, and blends them into  story - a story of the life of Clark.  I was hoping to provide a link to her LJ, so you could chose which version to download and watch, however, her site is friends-locked.  Therefore, I am providing the link to the YouTube version of the vid below.

ETA:  Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] enderwiggin24 , I found out that her LJ is only locked for personal posts, not vids.  So, if you want a choice of downloads for this magnificent video and/or want to leave her feedback, head here.

21st-Aug-2009 09:02 am Wounded Heart by BabyDee1 (NC-17)


Fandom: SMALLVILLE
Pairing: Clark/Chloe
Length: 50,000+
Author on LJ:  [livejournal.com profile] babydee1
Author Website: None
Why this must be read: In Abyss, Clark has the Fortress take Chloe's memories of all things Kryptonian, including his secret. In Legion, she gets all of her memories back, but doesn't remember what Clark had done. This story wonders what would have happened if she did remember. I absolutely love the scene in which Chloe confronts Clark with what he did, and I can only wish that the writers of the show were this good. Chloe doesn't let Clark off the hook, and she says things to him that so many of us wished had been written for her. Beyond that, something about the first four chapters (not including the prologue) just blew me away. I can't say to much or it'll ruin the impact, just don't stop reading. You won't regret it.
The rest of the story is just as wonderful, and the author does get us to a believable happy ending. The journey isn't a short one though, and there is much angst and drama along the way. Most characters from the show make an appearance at one time or another, even some that we haven't seen for a while. I hope you'll stroll on over to enjoy the ride [info]babydee1 takes you on. It starts out very bumpy, but it does start to smooth out until all bumps are eventually gone.

Title: Between the Earth and the Sea
Pairing: Clark/Lex
Length: 40,564
Author on LJ: [profile] belladonna_sw 
Author Website: None
Why this must be read: 
Lionel has discoverd Clark's secret, and Lex goes to warn the Kents that Clark has to go into hiding.  Enter Stargate.  Although I say the pairing is Clark/ Lex, the two are not together for most of this story.  Instead, the author takes a look at what life would be like for a Clark to be accepted for who he is and has no reason to fear green K.  The amount of people the author has show up in the story from Smallville is a delight, one of whom will provide fans with a nice sense of closure when her fate is revealed.

The 2009  [livejournal.com profile] smallvillebbang  stories are being posted.  There are many fantastic tales amongst them that include several different ships.  You should go check out the comm where all the master posts are for each story.  Posting continues until the 15th of this month.  Today, I'm going to rec a wonderful story from that challenge.

Fandom: SMALLVILLE
Pairing: Clark/Lex
Length: 35,239
Author on LJ: [livejournal.com profile] bellabisdei 
Author Website: None
Why this must be read: 
Set in Wales during ancient Roman times this AU story fits into the time period very well, adding many details of societies, dress, and behavior.  Better yet, the author fits in bits of SV canon as well.  Several canon characters besides Clark and Lex fit into the story, although names have been cleverly changed to better fit the time period.  It took me most of the story to figure one of them out.

While most of the story does take place in the past, it is also a future fic as well.  It both begins and ends in a future where Superman exists.  The reasons for this make a wonderful and unepected twist.

Fandom: SMALLVILLE

Length: ~4,500

Why this must be read: Quite simply - it's funny.  Take Lent, a dare, two teenaged boys deciding that they can go without masturbating for two weeks, add an unexpected alien side-effect, put in a dash of sexy Lex, and a smidge of alcohol.  Mix them all together and what comes out is a funny, light-hearted read with a bit of hotness to add spice.

2nd-Aug-2009 01:01 am Busted series by Urban Evil Goddess (NC-17)
Hi all. I'm [livejournal.com profile] twinsarein, your driver for Smallville this month. I'm excited about doing it again, as my last stint behind the wheel was a little over a year ago. As I was then, I'm mainly a Clex girl so most of my recs will feature that pairing. However, I will make an effort to rec a few that feature other relationships. At some point this month, I have at least one het to rec. Not today however. I'm going to start us off with an eight part series that I can hardly believe hasn't been recced before. I looked and looked to be sure, but I didn't find it. If I'm mistaken, then I apologize.


Fandom: SMALLVILLE
Pairing: Clex
Length: ~15,500
Author on LJ: No LJ
Author Website: Urban's Realm
Why this must be read: People find out about Clark and Lex's 'secret relationship' but the boys' don't know they know.   This story is simply a joy to read.  The author used multiple POVs to tell the story, and manages to capture everyone's characterization very well (even if it is through rose-tinted glasses some of the time), although my favorites are Chloe and Pete.  There's a large amount of humor in the story as well, and there's plenty of porn throughout.  I tried to pick an excerpt to include, but there was just too many good parts.  I couldn't decide which one to share, and finally decided to do without in an effort to get the rec done before I had to go to bed.

There is no one link that takes you to the whole story.  It's in eight pieces on the SSA and it's the last story listed on her webpage.

Title: Gene Therapy by Lady Ra
Pairing: John Sheppard/Rodney McKay, Lex Luthor/Clark Kent
Author on LJ: [livejournal.com profile] ladyra
Author Website: Visions of Pretty Boys Doing Naughty Things
Why this must be read:

1. The way these fandoms are crossed is brilliant. The SGA!verse and the Smallville!verse don't coexist with each just ignorant of the other. Instead, Lady Ra keeps the Atlantis!verse as our reality – complete with our comic books – and makes Smallville a parallel reality–Comic Book World.

2. Everyone from SGA is so in character it's like an actual episode. Well, aside from the slash aspect. Rodney especially is fabulous. This goes happily AU from Smallville season one, so Lex and Clark aren't technically in character, but they're extremely well done.

3. EvilGeniusMinion!Rodney and EvilMastermind!Lex.

Title: The Comfort of Adversity by [livejournal.com profile] kantayra

Author on LJ: [livejournal.com profile] kantayra
Author Website: Kantayra's Fic on LJ
Why this must be read: I swore for years there was no chemistry between Lex and Clark on Smallville and then Kantayra sucked me in, the evil bitca! Her fics are hilarious! You will laugh yourself silly. Most of her stories are more Smallville than DC but her Mercy is NOT Tess Mercer, but the Mercy Graves from the comics, and she's priceless. Best character depiction ever of her! In this fic, Kon-El exists and it's kind of a smush between Smallville and DC Comics. There's a death in the family and Clark freaks and runs away, and Connor moves in with Lex, and then Clark returns all lonely and slightly angsty and slightly horny. It's mostly a Clark/Lex fic but it's one I could see as easily in DC Comics as in Smallville, and Kon is just wonderful.

Why this vid kicks ass: When you combine flawless technique with a great sense of characters and emotion, you get fantastic vids such as those that [livejournal.com profile] talitha78 puts out. I had a hard time choosing just one of her works to recommend today. She pretty much has a perfect Smallville video for every ship or character. Today, "Change the World" is getting the nod because it does the music + video meshing so well. The song tells a story about a guy who's both pushing a girl away for her own good and reaching out to her because he can't do it without her. Clark and Lois dance around each other in this video that catches the ebbs and peaks of their on-and-off relationship.

Why this must be read: Did you ever read a fic that was just so deliciously fun that, when you were done, you read it again? Then one more time? Then, before you left happy feedback, you read it all just once more, making sure to save a link because, damn!, you're going to be reading this story a lot more times?

This is that story: a fun exploration of just how Lois drives Clark over the edge and, then, thanks to the wisdom of her cousin Chloe, realizes she done wrong. Of course, knowing Lois, she can't leave it at that. She has to make things right. Poor Clark!

Okay. Clark Kent is a god. )

Why this must be read: With all the angst and romantic disappointment that's a staple of the show, something's gotta give. Chloe and Lois find a therapeutic outlet for their annoyances with their erstwhile guys when Lana, fresh from her divorce from Lex, joins in. Much fun is had by all, with nary a guy around to spoil matters. Good thing, too!

Why this must be read:
This fic is so sad and so beautiful, and I cannot even begin to describe it. This fic takes us through the past eight seasons of the show, and shows us the true depth and purity of Chloe's devotion to Clark. And the story ends with the the ultimate show of devotion, and a silent reveal of a certain truth. The author puts everything into words so beautifully, and so perfectly, and I seriously think it's something every supporter of the Chloe/Clark pairing MUST read. A couple warnings, though: it contains slight spoilers/spec for this season's finale, and the story itself is f-locked, but joining the community to read is well worth it, if you're not already a part of it.
