Basingtoke, Girl

Drag stories rarely work for me. They usually seem written more to hit the kink than to illuminate character, and since it's not a kink of mine, I tend to find them rather dull. However, this story at least puts the trope to some use, to examine issues of identity. Also, this particular incarnation of drag-Lex is just more plausible to me than many others: I could actually picture this Lex in these clothes. The inclusion of Bruce Wayne probably wasn't strictly necessary, but at least fits the theme. Aside from this, it's a nice, heart-tugging story of the death of Lex's mother.
