Review:
Astolat (aka Shalott) is a good author in many fandoms, but she really does her best work with Smallville fic. Most of her stories are future fic and feature a just-this-side-of-evil Lex, an earnest but not stupid Clark (something canon has yet to master), and usually has a cameo by the most awesome version of Batman ever written, be it on screen or paper.

Revenge, which is inspired by a particularly crack-tastic bit from the comics (there's a link in the story so you can see just how much crack DC comics has been smoking), features a dark, repressed Lex; a confused, but slightly less repressed Clark; and Joker, who brings the red kryptonite. You can imagine what happens. And it happens on live TV. Broadcast worldwide. And that's just the first half of the story! A fun and funny bit of semi-dark fluff.

Oh my god, I remember this story. I read it when I was tearing through all of Shallot's stuff (I don't read much Smallville, because I started with her and punk, and just could not get into anyone else's) and it's... just... it's... hilarious. I am now off to read it again. Thanks!

Smallville was my first ever slash fandom. In fact, I only got into SGA because of an SGA/Smallville crossover and I was so hooked by SGA that I started to branch out. So, essentially it all started with the Clex:)

Honestly, I'll probably be reccing the majority of astolat's Smallville fics. Beyond that, I'm not sure what I might end up reccing in the fandom. My tolerance level for darkfic and non-con was already pretty low back when I first started reading fanfic and Smallville pushed my tolerance to the limits. Now that my tolerance for those two has dropped off to near zero, I'm not as excited to reread some of the Smallville stories as I had thought I would be. Darn it, DS is just so much *happier*!
