Jenn, In the Absence

To be honest, I was not planning to like any Lex/Lucas story--the facile incest story is one of the plagues of SV fandom, and bores me to tears. But though I think Lex would have put up a little more resistance than he did, Jenn just manages to bring it off here. Probably most importantly, she keeps firm control of the tone, making what happens understandable without casting a romantic haze overthe act, keeping Lucas's point of view most creepy without veering off into the tedious Grand Guignol theatrics that mark most bad Luthorcest stories.
