When the Sun met the Moon
“When the Sun met the Moon” was written as a response to a challenge that asked for a story set after Teen Titans #1 (when Kon discovers his true parentage) that had Kon meeting Lena Luthor, the other canonical child of Lex Luthor. (How come there are no more stories like that? The premise is wonderful!). This fic has Kon becoming Lena's guardian after an explosion left Lex comatose and having to deal with the fallout of the revelation of his true heritage.
