Happy Birthday, kristiinthedark!!!!

Wow, I have to say that the a_clexian_tale stories are, taken as a whole, I think probably the best group of challenge fics I can remember reading in a very, very long time. I've finally worked my way through them all, and I don't think there's a story in the bunch I don't like, and a number of them are truly among the best Clexfics I have ever read. (I guess I'll wait until the voting to do official recs, since I wouldn't want to bias the results). There are several stories with very interesting takes on Kryptonian culture/ technology/history; there are at least two stories that had me howling in laughter, and one that left me bereft and weeping; and there are also at least two long, plotty, extremely satisfying tales. Why aren't you reading them right now?

I'm really excited about the fics. I'm going to read them over the weekend so that I can vote on moday.

That's a terrific icon!

Yeah, I guess I could have saved them for the weekend and had something to look forward to, instead of staying up into the wee hours of the morning. But I can always reread them!

Voting was very, very, very hard, btw. I had lists and lists and lists, and agonized for a while before I could vote.

They're fantastic! I'm having the best time reading them! I can't wait to see who wrote what. And yes, there are some great and brand new takes on SV. It's a good time to be a fan, yes? *g*

The anonymity is interesting--I mean, yuletide stories are also anonymous, but there are so many, and the authors are so multi-fandom, that I can never guess, whereas for these stories I have a few guesses--enough to make it interesting--but I'm not completely sure about any of them.

And damn, there are some amazing stories. It's like a Clex renaissance!!

I have this nice, handy-dandy little list sitting on my hard drive that I might be persuaded to sell - if you can arrange for Lex and Clark to come visit me. **wild laughter**

Seriously, they are wonderful stories, aren't they? I'm glad I can't vote, because I'm not sure I could pick which ones are my favorites.

Well, you know the old saying - what hubby doesn't know helps keep the marriage intact! (Thank God he doesn't check the credit card statements!)

Thank you for the birthday wishes! yay!

The clexian challenge is going splendidly, yes. I'm impressed with several of the stories I've read and I'm having a lot of fun:D

I'm so glad we have quite a while before voting closes, because I'm only part way through reading them and this is going to take some serious mulling over! (although I'd be seriously surpised if any could displace my current favorite, mind you ,you never know!)

See, I thought that too, and then I kept reading.

It was SO HARD!!!

*reads more*
Oh no! I'm so torn. And wracked with indecision!
I'm not good with decisions, not even slightly. And indecision spirals. This is exactly the kind of thing that will lead to me spending half an hour every morning deciding on my underwear choice for the day.

I haven't read any of them yet. You should email me and tell me the best ones. *nods*
