Smallville check-in  
Insprired by astolat and cesperanza'a 30 day challenge, I am resolved to post more frequently to LiveJournal. Not much is going on in my life right now though, so I can't guarantee how interesting it'll be. Hopefully, practice will lead to improvement.

Did you know the sv_ledger will be shutting down in just 2 more issues? We (the editors) all just felt it was time, especially given the death of ciaan. But I'll miss it, and I'm sure newcomers to the Smallville community will miss it even more. So I'm going to do my little bit to keep a small portion of the Ledger alive - I'm going to periodically post 'reading lists' of new and updated fics, as well as vids or art that I run across. It won't be as comprehensive as the Ledger but it'll be something.

I'm rewatching Ageless right now as research for a Big Bang story I'm working on. God, it's painful. The whole Clana raising an exploding baby plot - who could possibly think it was a good idea? But the intrigue between Lionel and Genevieve over the stones is interesting, so I'm co-opting that bit for my story.

Speaking of which, I'm still looking for a beta. Anyone interested in a Gen story featuring Clark and Lex, plus the rest of the S4 cast? - volunteer found!

The Smallville writers, which honestly doesn't surprise me. Upset me, because I really didn't need any more Clana shoved in my face (and had stopped needing back around XRay), but not surprise me.

Dude, you know I'm all about anything featuring Lex and Clark. ;) Plus, you offered to beta my stuff before I dropped out of the BB, so I'm more than happy to extend the same offer to you.

Hip, hip, hoorray! I'm going to take you up on your offer, but LMK if its just too much - I would hate to slow down your writing because you're looking at my stuff.

I'll be sad to see the sv_ledger go, but I can understand the reasons for the decision and I'd like to thank all the editors for their tireless effort and hard work over the years. They helped make our fandom one to be proud of, and I wish all of you the best in all your future endeavours. *group-smish*

I look forward to your mini-list, Jen, and will do my bit to ensure you have something to report. ;-)

I can always count on you for something to report! I'm just worried I'll miss newcomers.

Hi, sweetie! If you're worried about missing stuff, why not make a sticky post or a post with a link on your sidebar that will be for people leaving links of stories they've seen and liked? I know you're probably watching the SV comms and you should keep an eye on dcu_bang. I doubt I'm the only one writing a Smallville story for that. :)

As for Ageless...*shakes head*. Even if I s-t-r-e-e-e-e-t-c-h my imagination to the limit and accept the fact that the baby aged overnight, I refuse to accept that he learnt to walk, potty-train, and absorb enough knowledge in his short time on earth to have an full use of his speech faculties, and an excellent command of English and grammar.

Whoever wrote that episode should scratch his/her name off the script, like now.

Re: PS...
Yeah, DeKnight was very little hit and mostly miss during his years on Smallville. He wrote Lionel fairly well but Clark didn't seem to interest him. Oh, well.

I'm sorry to see the Ledger go, but it makes sense. It's kind of the end of an era. I'll be happy to see what you do with collecting fan work.

I'm rewatching Ageless right now as research for a Big Bang story I'm working on. God, it's painful.
For me the best part of Ageless is when Clark walks away from the explosion looking like Wile E. Coyote. It's the most hysterical moment of the entire series.

Not quite the funniest, but close. Strike one THRJ.

We'll have to have a vote 'Funniest Moment of Smallville." Wile E Coyote Clark will by my nomination.
Jenjlvsclrk on September 10th, 2013 03:16 am (UTC)
Ooh, that would be a fun idea. Off the top of my head, my nominee would be Clark's panicked reaction to Chloe in Devoted - always makes me laugh.

BabyDee: 0Lex - Kinetic Flirt by Mirandababydee1 on September 10th, 2013 07:57 pm (UTC)
I'm torn between:

(1) Clark's bizarre excuse for dancing in Spell, or
(2) Lex's 'I'm-an-old-lady-in-broken-ass-high-heels' run when he was being chased by an imaginary pratt whilst the island.

*weighs options* ...



...and the 'Old Lady Running' Lex wins!!! :-D

I nominate the moment in Skinwalker where the wolf scratches at the study door and Lionel says "Lex?" Because that's how Lex always asks to come into a room.

Well, that sucks. The ledger was my last contact with that fandom and fic, but these things happen and the fandom is every smaller. The big, juicy fics don't seem to be coming out anymore.
Jenjlvsclrk on September 10th, 2013 11:13 pm (UTC)
Don't give up on us! I'm hoping to see some good stuff from the smallvillebbang and clexmas always has some fun challenges. But yes, it's a lot harder to find things nowadays.
iibnfiibnf on September 11th, 2013 02:31 am (UTC)
I will look forward to your reading lists :)
tasabiantasabian on September 10th, 2013 10:43 pm (UTC)
I will miss the Ledger a lot - all of you did a fantastic job. (Side note: hope all is well with voldy? Never see her on LJ or twitter any more.)

The one part of Ageless I enjoyed was Lionel asking Genevieve re. Lex "Do you want me to spank him?" Hey now!
Jen: LionelKnowsBest by ctbn60jlvsclrk on September 10th, 2013 11:11 pm (UTC)
LOL re ageless.

Voldy is the best! She's our resident Tumblr expert, so you can find her over there http://voldything.tumblr.com/ sometimes. I'll let her know you asked about her.

Oh, turns out she's http://youmovemesir.tumblr.com/ - there's a 'fake' voldything on Tumblr!

That sounds nice honey! If you want a banner or something to post with the reading lists let me know.
