You're no rock n roll fun: Bad Porn Lex (by runpunkrun)saturnalia on September 15th, 2004 08:11 am (UTC)
“I was seventeen! Everyone’s self-centered when they’re seventeen!”

Um, hi! Seventeen-year-old here. I feel like I should be insulted. *g*

Very nice story; I love the way you split the email text up in between Clark's actions. Kind of like he could only accept one little bit at a time- it took him that long to go from "Look, he's sending me drunk email, what a jerk!" to "I love you". (Or almost.)

Plus, I'm just a sucker for post-rift fic in general. Even after the show ends I think I can keep myself occupied for a long time by plotting how to get our woobies back together again.

*laughs* No insult intended! I'm sorry! *waves hands really placatingly* Eeek!

But, I'm glad that you enjoyed this -- *laughs* age-ism notwithstanding. *snugs* Thank you!

This was awesome. I loved the pacing, spreading out the correspondence with Clark's thoughts.

One small thing speedbumped me, though:

he can smell Lex’s aftershave

Um, Lex doesn't shave.

Other than that, take all those comments above and apply "What she said!" to each and every one.

Oh -- I just meant aftershave in terms of the way a lot of men use it in lieu of cologne, because it's got a lighter, sharper smell. But, you're right, he sure doesn't! Anyway, glad you liked the story! *bounces*

Thank you so much!!!!:0) Love how you write!!!!

Aww, thank you! *snugs* Thank you so much!

Oh! How lovely! I love this version of Clark, and this story so much!

at this point, baby? I'm only commenting to be #50. *grins*

You already know I love this. Wonderful work, sweetness.

pure FORESHADOWING: brad sexnifra_idril on September 28th, 2004 04:15 pm (UTC)
Aww, my magic number 50. *snugs you*

Wonderful, *wonderful* story pacing and great ending. I love the slipping of Lex's email snippets throughout the fic and people's reaction towards Clark's indignanat outbursts.
pure FORESHADOWING: charisma!nifra_idril on September 28th, 2004 04:16 pm (UTC)
*grins* I love Indignant!Clark. Also, Dogma. *snugs your icon and you*

Thank you so much, though! I'm really happy you liked this!

This didn't go through the first time I think, so forgive me if it's a double post. This was just terrific. Funny, sweet, angsty and totally the way it should turn out-not to mention containing one of the most beautiful love letters I've ever read.

Re: Wow!
Wow, thank you so much. *laughs* I didn't really think of the email as a love letter, but yeah, I guess it does kind of work that way. I'm glad you enjoyed it!

A beautiful, beautiful fic, Nifra. I haven't read all the zillions of other comments, so I'm sure I'm repeating what's been said, but your drunken, literary voice of Lex just blows me away. Gorgeous.
pure FORESHADOWING: Deathnifra_idril on September 28th, 2004 04:19 pm (UTC)
Oh, wow, thank you! *laughs* I have this mental image of a very drunk Lex with a glass of wine, waving one hand in the air as he writes the email and listens to -- oh, I don't know, Wagnerian opera or something, so literary is just the right word for the mood I was going for with him. *laughs again* I'm so glad you enjoyed this!

So very. yes. *adores you and builds you a shrine*

Ooh, a shrine, for me? That's so neat ! *bounces* Thank you!

*refrains from slobbering all over you, a complete stranger*

Lovelovelove this fic. Your Clark voice is superb -- totally what I imagine a slightly older and slightly wiser Clark to sound like -- and the Lex voice in his email to Clark blew me away with its accuracy. Oh, and that ending? EEEEEEE! Thanks so much. :)

Well, like one of my professors always say, good writing teaches you how to read. And heeee, the guy was talking mainly about James. So consider it a massive compliment. *g* This is a beautiful and enchanting piece. See, I just read it again from beginning to end when I came over only to read the last scene and feed my Metropolis CLex kink.

Oh, that hit the spot: angst plus satisfying resolution. Thanks!

Hoooooooly shit, I love you. I don't know you, but I love you. This is. This. Did I mention "holy shit?" Because wow. That's about as articulate as it's going to get from my corner. Wow.
