Fanfiction recs...

I know I've been quiet this week... when there's no current story being posted, I probably will be. But I have been pretty busy reading, and I was sucked back into the world of Lois and Clark: TNAOS by ksarasara and mrsmosley recently.

Lois and Clark was actually the first fandom I ever read fanfiction for, about 10 years ago (when it was still a listserv), and I have always had a soft spot for it. I was pleased to find out that the writing community is still alive and well!

So if anyone is feeling nostalgic and in the mood for some great reads (in the order I stumbled across them - all summaries mine):

Sara Kraft (ksarasara):
**Wherever You Will Go -- Clark leaves to fight the war on New Krypton, and suddenly H.G. Wells brings alterate-universe Clark to their world to help protect Clark's secret.
**Away from the Sun -- Sequel to WYWG -- Alternate-universe Clark, depressed that he will never have the life he so briefly tasted, discovers that the Lois Lane of his world is indeed alive after all.

CC Aiken:
**Lois Unbuttoned -- Lois has just left Luthor at the altar, and the only person who can help her out of her wedding dress with a gazillion buttons is her jilted friend, Clark.
**Superman Undone -- When Lois thinks that Clark has been shot and killed, Superman tries to prevent her from doing something she'll regret.
**Clark Uncaged -- The follow up to the first two in the "Un" series.
**When the World Finds Out -- After 30 years of marriage, Lois and Clark find themselves in an untenable situation - reveal Superman's identity or Lois will die. The first half of the story is the crisis situation, the second half is the aftermath.

Sue S.:
**Faustian Bargain -- Lois and Clark decide to become "friends with benefits"... But there's a great little B-plot to go along with all the delicious smut!
**The Next Step -- A near-death experience sends the team into hiding, and they take their relationship to the next level. Also an interesting B-plot here.
**One Step Beyond -- An epilogue to "The Next Step"

These are all complete. A lot of these stories are located in the Lois and Clark nFanfic Archive, which requires that you go through a registration process to read anything. But it didn't take too long, and it was worth the wait.

I'm going to keep reading through these authors' stories, but does anyone have recommendations for other great L&C fic?

I know I'm very late and I haven't read your last chap... I'm sorry but I haven't got the time at the moment and I don't want to read it like running (do you know what I mean? My english translator =husband isn't at home so I can't ask him if my english is right...) but I read it soon I promise.
I wonder if you can help me? It's about the serie "Lois and Clark" with Tery Hatcher. The show was in Germany on TV too but it is very long time ago and I have really loved it! It was the first time I saw an superhero so fantastic funny, normal and wunderful romantic *g* (except the Superman movies but they are unbeatable). Unfortunatly I've missed one episode and now I'm searching it. It is the episode where Clark ask Lois to marry him and she answers that she wants to know whom she should marry, Clark or Superman. It is the episode where she discovers his true nature. I think it was a two-parted episode.
Do you know which I mean? And can you tell me the name of it and in which season it was?
I hope you can help me. Thanks in advance.

Of course I can help! I'm all on a Lois and Clark kick right now, anyway...

The first part of that 2-parter was the Season 2 Finale "And the Answer Is...": http://www.tv.com/lois-and-clark-the-new-adventures-of-superman/and-the-answer-is.../episode/29114/summary.html

The second part was Season 3 Premiere "...We Have A Lot to Talk About": http://www.tv.com/lois-and-clark-the-new-adventures-of-superman/...-we-have-a-lot-to-talk-about/episode/29115/summary.html

Thank you!
I think the two seasons were the reason why I missed one part. Now I can get it! *gg*

I wish you a good weekend!

I probably sound like a broken record to my FoLC buddies, because I always recommend these two: The Butterfly Legacy by Lynn M and Ad Astra Per Aspera by Becky Bain. Also anything by CC Aiken, but I see you've already discovered that. :) Other favorite authors include LabRat, Caroline K (caroline on the boards) and quite a few others that I can't think of right now. I may be back. :)
Feb. 23rd, 2007 04:49 pm (UTC)
Where can I find those? Are they on the two main sites? The MBS?
Feb. 23rd, 2007 05:01 pm (UTC)
They're all on lcfanfic.com. Some are on the boards as well; you can seach the TOC forum. Butterfly is also on the nfic archive, but it's not vastly different than the version on the main archive.

Okay, I just read The Butterfly Legacy and I was going to *poke* you for having me read something that was "clearly" a Clark/OC story... the nerve... *wink*... But then when Clark made the phone call to Perry I knew that it really was a Clois story with a really long detour. It was very different, and interesting, and I thank you for the rec!! ♥

I'll read the rest soon! :-*
Feb. 23rd, 2007 08:55 pm (UTC)
I guess I should have warned you, sorry about that. :) But wasn't the ending great?

Also Lynn did two "lost" chapters which aren't on the archive. You can read them on the mbs at http://www.lcficmbs.com/cgi-bin/boards/ultimatebb.cgi?ubb=get_topic;f=7;t=000027. Scoll all the way to the bottom.
Feb. 24th, 2007 12:42 am (UTC)
Thanks for that! I read the Lois Lost Chapter, but not the other... maybe later. :)
Feb. 24th, 2007 02:42 am (UTC)
ZOMG, I can't believe you did that twice... I just read "Ad Astra Per Aspera" - and it's a Lois/OC! And... and... I liked it. *iz ded*

Is there anything else you would like to warn me about with the OTHER recs you gave? Hmm? O_o

(Lisa hides)

I'm sorry, B. I just love AAPA so much that I tend to forget that it is Lois/OC. I just think about that scene where Clark leaves, and the way he looks at her... I really am an L/C shipper, I swear! The others... Caroline's fics are definitely L/C. Check out "If I Were You" (on the boards and the archive) and "Stardust" (on the boards only). LabRat has written a lot of stuff and most of it, if not all, is L/C. Start with Epiphany on the nfic archive. ;)
Feb. 24th, 2007 04:11 am (UTC)
I just read "Epiphany"... sigh... Thanks. I needed some good Clois lovin' to end my day. Well, I doubt I'll do much of anything else but read all weekend! *hugs*
Feb. 23rd, 2007 04:50 pm (UTC)
Yay! More links to L&C fan fics! Now I've just got to find the time to read them, because I really want to. When the World Finds Out sounds particularly intriguing.
Feb. 23rd, 2007 04:58 pm (UTC)
Definitely do find time... "When the World Finds Out" is one of the best superhero-ID-revealed-to-world stories I've ever read.

(And your icon post from the other day came just in time) :)
Feb. 23rd, 2007 05:07 pm (UTC)
Excellent! I will definitely find time...between betaing, writing my own, and doing that silly reading for classes. Psh! Read for an English class, what nonsense!

(Yay! I'm glad =) I was really happy with how they came out. lol, if you need more, I've got all my L&C tagged in my graphics comm)
Feb. 23rd, 2007 06:03 pm (UTC)
Oh, sweet ... thanks for the recs! I've never read L&C fic before, so I don't have any in return, but ... ohh, that show does make me all nostalgic. It was my first real introduction to Superman that I can remember (I think I was seven when the show came out, lol) and I adored every moment of every season. So it's great to see that its fandom is still going strong--there's hope for the world (err, the fan world ...) if a show can be cancelled, yet never forgotten by its followers. ^______^
Feb. 23rd, 2007 06:06 pm (UTC)
It wasn't my first introduction to Superman (that was the original movies), but it was the first time I really shipped a couple so strongly, long before I even knew what that was. It is great that the fandom is still so vibrant after all this time, isn't it?

The whole reason I even started watching Smallville was because I loved Lois and Clark: TNAOS so much when it was airing. I can honestly say that I started shipping clois when I was 4. Every time a new episode would air I would have a little heart attack. Lois and Clark was all I talked about for the longest time and I remember crying when my parents told me that the series was over. The whole reason I got into fanfic was through reading Lois and Clark fics. My DVDs are precious to me and I watch them even more than I watch my Smallville and Charmed ones.

I have read a bunch of the Lois and Clark fanfic but I've been slipping since summer break ended. I've read Faustian Bargain and loved it. Now my interest is peaked so I just have to read the others too. I actually had a list of my favorite LnC fanfic somewhere but I can't find it. Off the top of my head I know that 24 Hours (I can't remember the author but I know I read it at lcfanfic), Long Strange Trip (lcfanfic), The Devil's Bargain (ff.net) and If I Were You (ff.net and lcfanfic) are really good reads. One I'm reading now is called Darkest Dreams and it is a really good WIP. Oh, and Tryst( ff.net) which inspired me to read the book which was so amazing that it inspired me to plot a Smallville fic to post after I finish one of my other ones. I could probably go on and on forever if I had my list. *sigh*
Feb. 24th, 2007 12:45 am (UTC)
Oh, cool! Have you read other Sue S. fics? They are awesome!

I will look into the other ones you mentioned. I memoried this post so I wouldn't forget! Hafta go through mrsmosley's first, though! :D

If you do run across that list, I def. want a peek.
