Strings by sarcastic_fina (NC-17)
When they started this, there were very serious rules. No strings attached. Somewhere along the way, that was simply impossible.

Epic Misunderstanding by RivkaT (R)
After Superman dies at the hands of Doomsday, Wonder Woman asks Lex, as the bereaved lover of Clark to help with the Justice League in the aftermath. Lex is rather flabbergasted, considering he and Clark were most definitely NOT in a relationship...other than that of mortal enemies. The problem? Absolutely no one believes this, and Lex ends up helping out, using LexCorp to assist the Justice League. Things get very awkward when Clark returns.

Survival of the Scorned by sarcastic_fina (PG-13)
Relatively short and sweet, 'Survival of the Scorned' is a charming and fluffy fic about the way our life and our choices change us, for the good and the bad. Having drifted away from the person she once was and the people she was once friends with, Chloe learns, grows, and accepts the changes; first with a tinge of heartache, then with cold acceptance, and finally with budding happiness. This all happens with her best friend, Oliver Queen, at her side and, sometimes, in her face.

Long Term Effects
This is a alien's made Clark and Lex have sex story, told from the perspective of Wally West. Wally West is one of my favorite characters, because his perspective on being a hero is a lot lighter than most of the DC heroes. Elendrialore takes full advantage of this to make a fun and goofy story come to life.

Puppet on a String
In this story Clark has known about his Kryptonian heritage for years, thanks to the intervention of his ship and his father's AI. Jor-el is still the overbearing and dangerous father figure he is in Smallville canon, which leads to some unusual changes in Clark's personality. Clark is a freshmen in high school and is going to play football, but his main objective for the year is to make Whitney his boyfriend. What follows is a seduction that is as strategic as any battle plan. Clark knows what he wants and he's wiling to take advantage of pretty much any situation to get it.

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.

In The Comfort of Adversity, the discovery of Conner has led Clark and Lex to negotiate a very tenuous truce. When Martha dies (pre-story, of natural causes), Clark leaves Conner with Lex and heads off to bust up asteroids. When Clark comes back, he crawls naked into Lex's bed (shocking the hell out of Lex). Of course, it all goes downhill from there.

Now, of course, they need to get back. Fortunately they have the Man of Steel and a billionaire sorta-evil genius to lend them a hand.

Project Overlord by Kantayra (NC-17)
"When most people turned forty, their friends threw them an 'Over the Hill' party and sent them humorous cards with bad jokes about aging.

When Lex Luthor turned forty, never one to follow the crowd, he promptly seceded from the U.S., aimed a death ray squarely at Washington DC demanding that the U.S. acknowledge his newly sovereign territory as the Independent Kingdom of Lexonia, and kidnapped Lana Lang in order to make her his queen.

There were times when Clark really hated his life."

Ulterior Motives by astolat (R)
Lex has been having even more attempts on his life than usual and, since he and Clark fell into bed together after one aborted assassination attempt (I love fandom), Superman's been working double-time to keep Lex alive and mostly honest. Not easy when the good guys (read: Batman, awesome as usual) keep pointing out how untrustworthy Lex has been in the past.

Useful Arts by RivkaT (NC-17)
It's the future, which means Lex and Clark are duking it out on a daily basis. That presents a problem for Lex, who wants to be president (not really possible as Superman's personal nemisis). On the plus side, Lex has noticed that Superman seems to have a problem, um, satisfying the ladies (if you know what I mean), and he whips up a Kryptonian version of Viagra in exchange for Superman backing off a bit and for a political endorsement from Clark Kent. Surprisingly enough, Superman agrees and for the first half of the story you essentially have Superman enjoying the wonders of sex from the nearest possible human (Lex). Then, the story takes a very surprising turn (I won't spoil the whys and hows) that results a several-year rift between Lex and Clark and suddenly there's the Justice League and Supergirl and it really does kind of feel like a sequel rather than part of the story, but at least it's a fast, action-paced sequel.

SuperGlue by Kat Reitz and Perryvic (NC-17)
I recced Holding Out for a Hero a while ago, so now it's time to rec the remake (by the original author and her frequent collaborator). Much of Lex's backstory is the same: sexually assaulted by Senatori as a child, pulled from the river in Smallville by Jonathan Kent, decided to break from the Luthor family and become a CSI, and currently living alone and suffering from crippling anxiety, primarily because Lionel is an evil bastard and Lex no longer trusts anyone. However, in this version of the story, Clark is not a CSI. Instead, he's a reporter who happens to be interviewing the Metropolis CSIs for a fluff piece when the Senatori case breaks and much of the story is spent on the case and the resulting fallout.

Holding Out for a Hero by Kat Reitz & Tzigane (NC-17)
The Smallville CSI fic, featuring Lex, Clark, Chloe, Lois, Whitney, and Perry (with cameos by Lana, and the Kents). In this universe, a near-suicidal Lex was saved at the river by Jonathan, instead of Clark. That good deed was enough to cause Lex to break with his father and find his own path in life, working in the DNA lab of the Metropolis CSI unit. Unfortunately, his past comes back to haunt him when Dominic Senatori turns up dead and the resulting investigation turns up evidence of a massive child prostitution/pornography ring. Senatori's first victim: Lex. Fortunately Lex finds support in his growing relationship with Clark, and in his friendship with his co-works.
