"From Afar" (Lex/Chlex One-shot): PG-13/15  
Here´s a brand-new fic that I posted yesterday on NS and ff.net and, although I´m posting my fics in cronological order here, I decided to break my rule for once.

: I have never felt really comfortable writing one-shots, maybe because of my verbose nature when it comes to writing. However, an idea´s been bugging me since last week and I just felt the urge to put pen to paper.

To my regular readers, I promise there´ll be more multi-chapter stories from me in due time- I´ve got three in the works but my muse has been really stressed out lately.

This short fic is a post-Arctic piece and it touches briefly on a couple of major events from the current season of Smallville seen from Lex´s point of view.

SUMMARY: Sometimes distance can make you feel things closer

SPOILERS: Bride and Stiletto

: Lexie

Lillian´s Child


Since the under-the-cut and LJ are driving me nuts, I´m posting an external link to read this fic- which is very brief, by the way. However, I´ll appreciate it if you could leave your feedback here. Thanks.


Read the sequels: "Mirror" and "Lean on Me"

This is really chilling. I could totally feel Lex's pain and anguish. Great stuff. :-)))

I just thought the whole thing could have been handled differently. The use of that transvestite that was supposed to be Lex simply appallled me and then having him behave so pathetically and vindictive in Requiem really pissed me off.

There´s no Season 8 without our real Lex and the video camera in Bride screamed Chlex. Still, it was Chloe´s scene in the back alley in Stiletto what triggered this short one-shot.

If you experienced what you said in your comment while reading this fic, then my goal was definitely accomplished.:)

Thanks again for reading and reviewing.

right... so it did get me a while to read this... but none the less, i am soooo relieved that i did read it! wooohhhooo!
and ahhhhwwwwwweee! that was kind of sad at the end... I mean, yeah, he idd say that he felt briefly sorry and guilty... but I still get the impulse to say, poor chloe... then later, I do think something like "thank god lex is there to help... right?"

great one shot! definatly a great season 8 lex fic!!! (probably one of very little...) anyway... enjoyed reading this!

Thanks for reading and reviewing.

I felt compel to write it after Stiletto and the whole Lexless season.

If you liked it, there´s a companion piece I posted in the wee small hours of the morning- it´s called "Mirror", and is told from Chloe´s POV.

I´m thinking about writing a multi-chapter fic to follow that one once I get the time.

This made so much sense (far more than season 8 in canon did)!

I just got through reading (and loving) "Undercover Warrior" and "The Last Ace" and followed some links and recommendations to this series, but I wanted to thank you before I read any further -- thank you for redeeming so much that canon SV wrecked about Chloe and Lex! :)
