Put You Half To Sleep by callmesandy, Smallville/Roswell.
She said: Sean/Lex. Awwwwwww, the only entry on this list that could not in any way be described as a hit, especially since the only people who loved the story beta'ed the story. But it's a best of to me. It's quiet and bleak and still vaguely sort of hopeful.
I whore for bleak futures, you know. Roll *right* over. I also whore for Lex, but that's kind of a given. It's not the future that's become so sad, but the person that chose to live it. My Roswell is years old and only a season and random eps, but this resonated with me. Plus, you know. Roswell/Smallville. Does any crossover in history, besides, say, X-Files, make so damned much sense?
You should really read it. And you could leave her feedback here, too. It's beautiful.
Because it just amuses me a lot
I was thinking, and perhaps murmuring in a slighly tipsy haze, how much I'd like Clark/Max.
I mean, I really would. In a very weird way, because visualizing a first time with the two of them would be an exercise in a comedy of epic proportions for observers. I mean, they both have that dark, brooding, mysterious, cute, vaguely depressed, very hot thing going on, and that fetish for bland brunettes is there (though I *liked* Liz, so there). And they both--I mean, imagine the negotiations required just for a kiss. I mean, they aren't the type to just jump the other. Oh no. There would be strange, surreal, not entirely clear conversation beforehand while they blushed enough to set things on fire.
I mean, apart from Clark's heat vision.
It would happen over a game of parcheesi. Slowly. Very freaking slowly.
I amuse myself in a variety of freakish ways.
I think these are the only Roswell fics I ever read, come to think, at Disquieting Muses. Maria/Michael. I think jengrrrl sent me to the messageboard she was posting at for them. Well, her and Elizabeth at Ficorama, but really, who doesn't read Elizabeth? *happy sigh*
Visitors is still my favorite.
I need to do some re-reading.
