Spike, Nereus, Who Tells No Lies

A brief, dazzling peculiarity of a post-"Exodus" story. Suffused with tremendous compassion for the character as well as a strangling sense of impending doom, this is a lovely example of the way fanfic writers can successfully push the stylistic envelope, if they're talented enough.

Nifra Idril, A Pale Distance

A sympathetic, thoughtful Clark study of the kind this fandom could use a hell of a lot more of. Bonus points for sweet and plausible portrayals of the elder Kents.

Well. Most of the fandom likes red!Clark much more than I do. If you like red!Clark, I think the odds are good you'll like this story. Me, I got on board for the Pete, who's pitch-perfect in his anger and affection. Damnit, why can't the show writers take the trouble to give Pete flesh like this? He's not the greatest character in the world, but the potential for stories like this is definitely within reach.

LaT, Courier

If I'm being perfectly honest, I have to admit that the ideas behind this story are not the most wildly innovative. But this story is far too full of lovely, clever, erotic details--as well as a highly-plausible characterization of a minor figure--for me to complain, really.
