recsfest days 22-25

Since I am off to Escapade today, and don't think I'll have net access until Sunday night, I'm going to do the recs for days 22-25 all at once. It's your own responsibility to ration them out over the weekend, if you feel the need to do so.

Today's Clexrec author is chimosa. It was hard to pick just one of chimosa's stories, though after much reflection, I couldn't resist overprotective hooker Lex bossing around hooker Clark in her wonderful short piece, What Happens in Vegas . Still, if you haven't read A Slow Inevitability , I highly recommend it. Post-Reckoning, Clark and Lex take a bittersweet roadtrip. Lex wants to help Clark, but neither of them really know how.

Tomorrow's rec is roxymissrose The Dog . Since Roxy is the mistress of tormenting the boys, I'll confess had to work up the nerve to read this, since the premise scared me: Lionel captures Clark at a young age, cages him, and teaches him to be his dog. It's true that there's quite a lot of Clark torture in this story, and a fair bit of Lex torture, too, but when they finally find each other they teach each other how to be human again. There are some fabulous original characters like Ray and Rob, and this is long, dense, and gripping tale, though parts of it will break your heart.

Saturday's rec is scribblinlenore, A Clarkmas Carol. Clark inadvertantly enacts a Dickensian tale as he tries to make up with Lex. He's a little off-script, but fortunately he has Lex there to prompt him.

And finally, Sunday's rec is averaird, Injustice , futurefic in which Lex realizes he doesn't hate Clark nearly as much as he thought he did. Or at all. A long, slow, sweet reconciliation tale.

Thanks! I'm planning to come talk about fan intimidation when I have more than 10 minutes a day computer time on Sunday, because I think that's a very interesting topic.

Aw, boo, thank you so much for the rec!! I can't believe you liked the Vegas one that much, it's so embarrassingly short, lol.

Hope you have a superawesomewonderful time while you're away

Thanks! I am stealing a couple minutes away from the con to check lj, but I'm having lots of fun so far.

And there's a solution for the Vegas one being short, you know. :Sends story writing mojo in your direction:

*glomps you*
THANK YOU!!! I so need this for the coming weekend and could kiss your feet for providing them.

I think I'll shy away from "The Dog" for now, I'd like something less heartbreaking for now. :)

Oncea again, thank you, chum. It's so cool of you to do this.

Hope you have a wonderful weekend!


Hugs,
kik

Thanks so much. I did have a very good time, though I confess I'm going to be very glad to sleep in my own bed tonight.
