Rich Man's Darling by LastScorpion (PG-13)

I didn't have a chance to write this one up before mpreg week, so... bonus rec!

Title: Rich Man's Darling by LastScorpion
Fandom: House/Smallville
Pairing: Clark/Lex, a het pairing I'm pretending didn't happen (except to note that Cuddy is a doctor, too, dammit!)
Categories: mpreg, case file, angst
Length: Long (~19,000 words)
Author's Warnings: If Clark Kent’s throwing up, it’s probably not just the flu
My warnings: um... gore. And ickiness. (And I'm never, *ever* having children. Ever. Ew.)

Author on LJ: n/a?
Website: n/a

Review:
Lex Luthor offers House ten million dollars to look at a patient and a crapload more to cure him. The patient? Superman!

I'm mostly reccing this because of the characterizations, which are brilliant. Between Chase being utterly intimidated by pretty much everything, House being House, Wilson being awesome, Lex being (worried, vengeful) Lex, Cameron being a pile of mush, and Clark being... really, really sick, you have a truly fascinating mix of characters. Bonus: unique explanation for Superman's savior complex! House and Lex facing off! Mercy and her kryptonite bullets!

In short, a story for anyone who has ever wanted to see a crossover between House and Smallville.

Rich Man's Darling
The sequel that disses (Dr. Cuddy): Well Baby?

Oh wow, I did not see the mpreg label. Lol. So I was very surprised indeed. =P

I have to admit, I think this fic is better (also, more shocking) if you don't know it's mpreg going in (I didn't know either). Doesn't really fit in with the comm rules, though, so...

Yeah, when I came to the part, I basically had a "OMG WTF so cracky" reaction and started cracking up. =D

But it could def be upsetting for people who have an aversion to mpreg. =P

The author is on dreamwidth here: http://lastscorpion.dreamwidth.org/ though she doesn't appear to have much fic indexed there, and also has some of her fics on ff.net here: http://www.fanfiction.net/u/295464/LastScorpion

There's a prequel called "Arrowhead Stadium" thought the tone is really different. I think the events are referenced in "Rich Man's Darling." Sort of weird hurt/comfort dub-con thing.

LMAO, I'm sorry to laugh but I remember the first time I read this all I could think after would was "OMFG vomit babies are wrong!" Its really amusing in retrospect because since then I've found 2 other fics where he gives birth in the same or similar manner.

Well, the baby does have to come out somewhere and the mouth isn't the most disgusting potentially outgoing orifice in the male body. (The things you find yourself writing when in fandom...)
