SV recs and icons

Today is my 2-year anniversary on lj, and I really have to thank rose_emily for flocking new parts of Omiai and forcing me to finally break down and get my own lj. Not that I was quick to use it or anything--between April 7, 2004 and April 14, 2005, I made 1 whole post. And then about 5 posts between April and October of last year, and then over 100 in the last 6 months. Yay, me, for overcoming chronic social phobia!

So to celebrate, I have some new SV recs ! Mostly Clex, mostly smutty.

Abi, Cheater . (Clark/Lex, Clark/others, implied Clark/Lois and Lex/Lois) Unbelievably steamy (though depressing) story in which Clark and Lex each exact revenge on each other for cheating. Features slut!Clark, in the beginning, then very hot Clex.

Abi's Prom Queen . (Clark/Jason, Clark/Lex, implied Lex/Jason). An amazingly smutty season 4 piece, set immediately after the prom. Clark wants Jason because Lex has had him--but when he finally gets him, Lex walks in, and it's clear who Clark really wants.

Ciel's I am the Heir of All the Ages Dark" (Clark/Lex). Those who do not learn from history are doomed to repeat it. Gilgamesh and Enkidu, Achilles and Patrolocus, David and Jonathan all have lessons to teach Lex about love. I love how this story captures the epic quality of Clark and Lex's relationship.

Edie, Fund Raiser (Clark/Lex). To raise money for a high school club, Clark has to perform chores in his bathing suit. Naturally Lex has Clark wash his entire car collection, but the sight of Clark in a speedo might be too much for him. Remember those halcyon days when the only thing keeping them apart was their fear of acknowledging their true feelings for each other? Oh, early SV smut, how I miss you.

Elandria Lore, Love Was (Clark/Lex). A steamy first time story. Clark is googling Lex, and finds Lex RPS. He never thought about Lex in quite that way before, and now he can't stop.

Hautecoffey, Freshman Haze (Clark/Lex).A college AU, where CLark and Lex are roommates. It ends a little abruptly, I thought, but I'll forgive that because it has "trapped in tight spaces" sex, which is one of my favorite cliches.

Jenn's Five Very Good Reasons Not to Date Luthors (Clark/Lex). A sweet and funny college AU, in which Clark moves in with Lex. Hilarious and hot like a hot thing.

L.C., Both Hands (Chloe/Lana). A lovely sensual tale, with sharply drawn characterization of both women.

Lacey McBain, The Sweet Scent of Orchids (Lionel/Lex, Lionel/Lillian implied, Clark/Lex implied).A really different spin on Lex and Lionel's scene in "Transference." Not your usual incest story; a really interesting look at Lionel's yearning for his son, his wife, and understanding.

For those of you keeping score at home, this rec set brings me officially to over 250 recs this year!

I also decided to celebrate by sharing some of the icons I've been making lately.

Apr. 7th, 2006 10:19 pm (UTC)
Thanks! Glad you like the recs, and the icon.
Apr. 7th, 2006 10:36 pm (UTC)
Oooh, recs! I haven't had a lot of time to read lately, but I'll definitely put them in my memories. Thanks, hon!
Apr. 7th, 2006 10:37 pm (UTC)
Oh, and nice icons as well!
Apr. 7th, 2006 10:40 pm (UTC)
Thanks! Glad you like them.
Apr. 8th, 2006 12:32 am (UTC)
Yay! More recs!! I just adore your recs. So glad for these!!
Apr. 8th, 2006 12:37 am (UTC)
You're welcome! I keep finding stories I missed the last time I recced things, so I expect there will be more in the future. (And, you know, hopefully people will write cool new stories I want to rec too!!)
Apr. 8th, 2006 01:17 am (UTC)
Ooh, haven't seen some of those recced before, thank you! Off to read.
And yay, pretty icons - especially 18. Chloe looks gorgeous (Also, is the erm.. Bend Over Boyfriend effect of No. 11 intentional? 'Cause if so, hee! If not, I'll just be going now.)
Apr. 8th, 2006 02:57 am (UTC)
Oh, the bend over boyfriend effect of #11 is completely intentional, I assure you. I *love* that picture.

Thanks for the compliments!

I love that story by Ciel. Man, I wish she were still writing...

Your icons are hilarious.

*goes back to reading dirty manga*

Amazingly--even though "The Lionel in Winter" is one of my FAVORITE stories--I had not, for some reason, read "I am the heir of all the ages dark" until about a month ago. I tend to think that I've read every story in SSA (at least the ones I can make it past the first three paragraphs), but every so often the random story generator throws up something I haven't read yet.

Thanks for letting me know you like the icons. I'm just starting out on this icon-making thing, and I am mostly still working in paint, so I can't do all the pretty stuff with layers and adjusting color etc., but I'm having fun with them anyway.

What dirty manga? How porny is it? Would you recommend it?
Apr. 9th, 2006 05:08 am (UTC)
The manga is pretty effin porny. You have to join yaoi_daily in order to access the entries, but get ready for some serious addiction. I've been up late every night since joining. There are lots of different styles. I have found that I like anything by Naono Bohra. There seems to be quite a lot of anal sex, as opposed to hand or blow jobs, and that bothers me slightly. Just from a variety-is-the-spice perspective.
Apr. 8th, 2006 10:25 am (UTC)
Yay, me, for overcoming chronic social phobia!
*uses Yay icon appropriately*

Love these icons! Particularly 9, 12, 13 and 20! I'm so very glad there's a Prison Sex icon out there, because I rewatched that scene recently and the implied rape is so major! I'm going to snag these and the Lois squee one (because she is so veeeery squeeful). Oddly and inappropriately the Clark 'bereft' one makes me lol, so I'm also snagging that! Actually 2 and 3 are also very compelling--for reasons that I can't quite articulate. Nice work!

(And I LOVE your recs. If I'm ever invalided, I will read them all!)
Apr. 8th, 2006 03:30 pm (UTC)
Thanks! Pretty much every time I make a Lois icon I'm thinking of you, so I'm glad you like those ones. And I'm never sure if the humorous ones are just my odd sense of humor or not.
Apr. 9th, 2006 04:49 am (UTC)
Odd sense of humour is great! That must be wonderful about making your own icons. I'm always delighted by icons I found truly humourous because my own sense of humour is somewhat offbeat too.
