Lex Luthor Ruler of Australia
Author: seaouryou
Fandom: Smallville
Pairing: Clark/Lex
Notes: This was going to be a oneshot like all of the fic in the not!fakebaby!verse, but it started to drag on with no end in sight so: two-parter.
1. In this 'verse, Jimmy is Jimmy. His little brother can, I don't care, photograph male underwear models or something.
2. This fic draws a lot on the events of past not!fakebaby!verse fics, particularly Ten Ways to Defeat Your Nemesis
3. I don't let Lex win often in this 'verse (he is a supervillian, after all), but when he does, he wins in a big way.

Frantic (Or, The Day There Were No Porkchops)
by jenn
Clark/Lex
Rating: NC-17, barely
Summary: In which Clark does not get dinner. And then everything goes downhill.
Author Notes: Nonchop asked and asked and then I said yes, though it took a *darn* long time to finish. Possibly my happy gene is in remission or somesuch. You'd be surprised how much pressure someone (*cough* madelyn *cough*) can put on a person, though.
"Right. Let's just pretend that Lex *never* has experiments that get totally out of control and almost destroy the world as they know it."

Five Very Good Reasons Not to Date Luthors
by jenn
(Lex, Clark, Clark/Lex) NC-17
Spoilers: none
There are good, solid reasons.

At the Fifteenth Annual Evil Mastermind Convention.
Author: Basingstoke
Scott Evil. Lex Luthor. A wholly improbable crossover.
"Thanks to everyone who helped me out with this one--especially Livia, for the title."
Hilarious.

The Color Pink
Author: Basingstoke
Superboy discovers pink kryptonite.

Thirty Minutes or Less
Author: Christina K
Clark recognized the voice immediately; he was just surprised Lex bothered to call him at the Planet, instead of using a sonic blast and high frequency death threats to get his attention.
"Superman. I have a Death Ray pointed at downtown Metropolis."
"I'm listening," Superman checked around the office to make sure no one was paying attention, then lowered his voice. "What are your demands?"
"Pizza."

Smallville/Supernatural xover ficlets.

Livid
Author: Rivkat
For the Turn Left meme, jakrar asked: "how would Incarnadine have gone if it had happened later in their relationship, when Clark was all suspicious and accusatory toward Lex?" Answer : not well. Incarnadine has Red K-induced issues of consent all over; herein we discuss a couple of them, but there's no recounting of explicit sexual activity. So, PG-13 for themes.

Summary: When Red Hood breaks into Lex's penthouse to kill him for his crimes Lex just sighs and offers him coffee. The strange relationship that forms after that befuddles everyone including Jason and Lex.
Notes: Post-Rift, Future Fic, crack concept, jealousy, anger, mood altering pollen, sibling rivalry, older/younger sexual relationships. And for anyone who's curious, in this 'verse Metropolis is across the bay from Gotham like in the comics, not in Kansas like in SV.

Looks Like a Billion Bucks
"Then why does he keep giving me billionaire looks?"
"What looks?"
"Billionaire looks," Clark said, gesturing covertly. "With his eyes going up and down and then focusing on my eyes, and the little smile. It's how billionaires look at people."
