Updated Red!Clark

Catch You Coming Down by Basingstoke NC-17 (12K)

Clark and Lex reconnect after their summers away.

Feel Everything by seperis NC-17 (12K)

Wide, green-gold eyes and a wet red mouth and a thousand dark promises, all staring back at him, and no one human could say no to that and mean it.

Promise Again by mamajoan NC-17 (8K)

"But Clark..." Still smiling, teasing, coming back out from behind the
desk and returning to where Clark stands, "...if you take my car, who's going to rock my world?"

The Darkling by Chelle aka mmmchelle NC-17 (8K)

Clark gets tired of waiting for Lex to wake up.

The Gift of Red by elandrialore NC-17 (13K)

Thank you for making these lists and for making it so comprehensive. Truly appreciate it!
8th-Jul-2007 04:13 am (UTC)
I know its pretty obsessive of me to mention this. But it is the only thing that bugs me about the list. "To sleep perchance to dream" is Hamlet referring to suicide. It really changes the meaning of the list.
8th-Jul-2007 05:24 pm (UTC)
Noted, but won't be changing. A number of the 'titles' have more than one interpretation, which is why they have blurbs.
11th-Jul-2007 05:17 am (UTC) - Hello *waves*
Wow, great job! I love the lj lay-out and you have a
lot of list's, it must have took a long time to compile
them. I know I just put together some my of favorites
list and it took a very long time.and was very time
consuming and I have a lot bookmarked. And of-
course my sister helps me with the links I can't
find..but still it takes forever.You're my hero cause
this is just amazing,and you write stories too *blinks*
uhh when do you sleep? Lol thanks for the lists.

11th-Jul-2007 12:16 pm (UTC) - Re: Hello *waves*
Thanks, it's still a work in progress. Yes, it's taken months, but it amuses me in-between writing and organizes all the fics I've collected for years. Sleep? It's overated. *grin*

Thanks for letting me know you're enjoying. :-D
29th-Jul-2007 07:12 pm (UTC)
I'm considering shooting you, you know. Out the airlock of a spaceship maybe. *laughs* Well, why? Let's just say I'd sworn I'd never be reading SV fic again... I kept coming across some stuff that just... turned the urge to read way off. Thanks to this list? I've re-read old favorites and some I hadn't read before. Thanks for sharing and putting my old stuff on the lists as well LOL

PS. in your Baby you can drive my car list you've got one of mine listed as being Zahra's -- "Things you just do when you're bored" -- link's fine, leads to the right place.

Again, thank you for lining up some very enjoyable reads.
29th-Jul-2007 07:41 pm (UTC)
So glad I've been able to help entertain you, even if I did drag you back to SV. *grin* I love your stories and they're a great add to the lists, especially when I attribute them correctly. *blushes* Thanks for letting me know so I could fix it. :-D

Gifts by fajrdrako NC-17 (32K)

“While I was watching ‘Phantom’ I kept wondering who he was. The ghost. I don’t mean in the story, I mean, in my life. At first it seemed obvious. You wear a mask, you come back from death.

Hephaistion (To Your Alexander) by selfinduced NC-17 (28K)

Clark’s blood was rushing loudly by his ears, almost drowning out Lex’s words, except, it was Lex and for a moment it was easy to believe he was Hephaistion--he always wanted Hephaistion to just do something in those moments alone with Alexander--as he rose to his knees on the edge of the bed and leaned over to just. Press his chip-salted lips over Lex’s still-talking mouth.

"But we're the same person!" Superman shook his head in confusion. "That doesn't even make any sense, Luthor."

Oh, What A World by Tiffany Rawlins NC-17 (8K)

Clark wants this, he wanted to stumble and fall and shove his face against Lex's cock, he would have asked if he'd had any idea how.

Picture Perfect by signe aka oxoniensis NC-17 (16 K)

"Well, let's face it, Lex, we've been dancing around the idea for long enough. Much as the flirting and a few kisses have been good, and they have, I want more and I know you want more. Or were you planning on me having the dubious distinction of graduating as a virgin?"
