the reward for insomnia  
Not the *cure* for insomnia, but the beautiful, happy reward of having wandered back out to my computer at four a.m. Because I discovered that runpunkrun had secretly smuggled a half-naked Clark into my apartment and left him drinking milk in my kitchen. She is a good, good person. She also reposted a link to The Milk and Cookies War (Clark/Lex), which I hadn't had a chance to read yet, and this is the kind of story you squee over and have to quote lines of:
"Lex," Clark says, standing behind him. "It hurts me to say this, because you have a brilliant mind, but that ham just outsmarted you. Maybe you shouldn't help."


It's a shame none of these people work for him anymore because he wants to fire them again, harder this time.


The doors close. Lex stares at his reflection. There's a bald man holding a cranberry walnut scone. He sighs and takes a bite.


"...lean hog futures," Lionel pauses for a breath. "Are you listening to me, son?"

"Not really," Lex says.

"I can tell when I'm not wanted," Lionel sniffs, apparently operating under the delusion that Lex has amnesia and can't remember the last twenty-seven years of his life.
The last quote started its own section of the story, which multiplies its hilarity for me by at least 79%. Or maybe I mean 179%. I'm not good at math.

All this and Rothko. She must be read. I am happy, happy, happy. And too awake! But I'm going to go back to bed and switch channels and think about Jack Davenport for a while and maybe someday sleep again.

I know--there needs to be, like, five more stories exactly like this but different. Right now. I think I'll call the waiter over and order them.

If this story wasn't clearly by someone else, I would have been certain it was written by you -- it seems like the Smallville story you'd write, were you to write in Smallville.

Thanks for the rec. :)

I loved this story too, and am happy to join in the fan-girling!

Your icon seems appreciative too--is it just me or does Lex seem to be developing a purple haze, possibly from the blowjob he's getting just offscreen?

Of course he's developing a purple haze...what other color could it be? *wink* And yes, a certain superhero is very busy giving him a hot and wet blowjob, as Lex gazes blindly into the distance, lost in the feel of Clark's tongue. Mmmm. Yeah.

(ps--the lovely vylit made this icon of Lexish beauty.)

That bald-man-with-scone line kills me every time. I bow before the genius of runpunkrun, long may she write.

She rocks very much. I think I will go read the story again.
