I'm very, very tired of Jonathan.



Just for the record.

Short entry, because I got so bored, but there were some happy high points that made me giggle.

One, Clark's hair's cute, his eyes are very green, and he's really boring. I mean, really, really boring this week. I would say his emotive capacity was as one with frogs, but I've read frog!Clark fic, and nope, the frog!Clark did better. But damn, you were pretty, and I see you have added a new expression, confused yet stoic determination. Which is somewhat differnet than mere confused determination and very subtly differnet from the stoic version. This brings your total thoughtful expressions to three. Very impressive.

You woobie well using that stoic determined look, btw. Poor alone baby. Methinks you're feeling insecure now that Mommy adn Dady are having a baby and Lex has a girlfrined AND a brother. Poor, poor lonely Clark.

Two, Lex makes me happy. He is SO obsessed. Dear God, he is obsessed. And lookie there, we're back to the bridge obsession and now it gets its own screen. A very, very big screen. Anyone notice this besides me? And also, Clark's jail pic (wasn't it?) a few feet high there.

I'm curious, though, sport--for all this careful studying of strangeness, why again do we need a three foot tall picture of Clark's face? Hmm?

Also, I forgive you for Helen, because you have just proved that you are going to be GOOD at that criminal mastermind thing once you start objectifying people, and well, a good way to start is with your girlfriend. I'm thinking you're working up to doing that to Clark.

I'd also suggest some therapy, but at this point, I think you'd damage your therapist too much. I am, of course, at your service to help with your army of destruction. Feel free to ignore my obviously-insane Rosetta mumblings about joining Clark. Obviously, I was Very Ill.

Three, Jonathan, go away. You have officially lost my sympathy. You are annoying. Helen KNOWS. And also? Martha is jittery because SHE CONCEIVED A CHILD DUE TO A SPACESHIP, kay? This is not pregnant-mommy hormones, so one more indulgent man-look and I swear, I will kill you in five fics and make it messier every time. Don't push me.

Four, Lana, I'm impressed. That is beautifully manipulative. Seriously. I had no idea you were capable of that kind of advanced planning and foresight. See? THIS is intersting. You may get to nail Lex after all. You're totally proving your worthiness here.

Five, Chloe and Pete, I didn't see much of you but when I did, you forwarded the plot admirably, much like a truck forwards a person down a road. Brava.

Six, Helen, Jesus, pick a side. Your eyes are weird and I don't trust you at all with Lex, because you are going to betray him and he's probably still going to mourn you, in his Lexian way. And that sucks. Are you a Kent-person or a Lex-person? Let me point out--Jonathan's a bitch and Lex gives orgasms. Think for a minute. Seriously. This shouldn't be a choice.

Maybe this ep will grow on me. Visage did. It really, really did.

Though you know, Clark and Lex again amuse me. And I agree with Liv and whoever else said that Lex is perfectly capable of living on two levels--friendly with Clark and also clinically obsessed with him, without ever quite noticing that hmm, this is weird. I suppose anyone who grew up with Lionel Luthor learns the fine art of compartmentalization very very well.

Interesting that he took Helen to that room. I wasn't too sure of what the HELL he was thinking during Fever, other than the fact that someone slipped him a few dozen valium in his coffee, but yes, he knows Helen knows something interesting, and yes, he has every intention of finding out, and yes, Helen, if you try to lie or keep it from him, Something Bad will happen to you. I just wonder if he's the one that will do it.

Re-donning my Lexian jackboots and looking foward to the destruction of all that is good and pure. I'd suggest starting with Clark's technical virginity.

For this, need more coffee.

And also, Clark's jail pic (wasn't it?) a few feet high there.

This is completely random, but I could have sworn that said 'jailbait pic'. Go figure.

Humor? From an eppie that frankly inspired multiple yawns?

You are a goddess. *g*

BTW, any clue: what is *up* with Smallville?

Loved Lex's room tho. Obsession, technology - and RUN FOREST! (aka Helen) ::snerk::

Smallville people are on crack. And this episode is the best Don't Do Drugs thing EVER.

*snickers* Don't feel too sorry for Helen there. She wasn't exactly panting to make a break for it. Bad, bad Helen. *Grins*

I'm curious, though, sport--for all this careful studying of strangeness, why again do we need a three foot tall picture of Clark's face? Hmm?

Nothing combats the stress of the workaday world like jackoff target practice?

I thought it was funny that it was such a come hither picture.

Lex's "obsession" put me in a Rocky Horror place. Dark hair and a tan...

Bwahahahahahahaha! The images! The images in my mind! ROTFLOL!

(Deleted comment)
It should be all of our calling to help Lex in his quest.

Hah! That's good.

And this is very interesting...

Lex is definitely a unique guy. Sexy as fuck, too. That never hurts.

Mm. Sexy uniqueness. That has a Big Blue Room o' Love.

Ooh yeah. *grins*

I'm curious, though, sport--for all this careful studying of strangeness, why again do we need a three foot tall picture of Clark's face? Hmm?

*Nods feverently* Yes...he knows what Clark looks like already. And such a pretty, pretty picture too! Therefore, it is reasonable to assume the picture is there for an entirely *different* purpose.

I will kill you in five fics and make it messier every time. Don't push me.

Now...I'm kinda hoping he'll *push* you.

Hey, although I'm kinda weirded out by Lex's Bluebeard inspired room ...I am also strangely happy about it. Lex has been on top of everything all along, which, you know, we all suspected, but it's still reassuring to know that he still has that scary smart brain in fully functioning mode.

Ooh, even scanning of Clark's family tree. *whistles* Niiiicccee.

Nice to *know* he didn't actually buy that lovely junk mail crapfest in the hospital corridor.

Re-donning my Lexian jackboots and looking foward to the destruction of all that is good and pure. I'd suggest starting with Clark's technical virginity.

*nods again* SV just got a heck of a lot more *interesting* tonight. I couldn't be happier.


Seriously, I think he probably has like, hair samples and forgotten Clark=clothing in there somewhere.

It's sad when even blatantly unhealthy obsession I'm finding sexy now.

*nods again* SV just got a heck of a lot more *interesting* tonight. I couldn't be happier.

ooh yeah. SO interesting. *nodnodnod*

Three, Jonathan, go away. You have officially lost my sympathy.

Last season, in my own little private SV universe, the background I created for Martha was that she went from a controlling father to a controlling husband. This season has just borne that out for me. I don't actually think the Kents have that great a marriage. He orders her around, and rather than standing up to him, she goes behind his back. First with borrowing money from her father, and now going to see Helen. Her behavior would make total sense if she had been raised to think she didn't have a right to stand up for herself. The one time I remember on the show that she did was going to work for Lionel on her anniversary, and it blew up in her face.

I like your private universe, because god I can't stand Jonathan. I would rather have him as a father than say Lionel. But if he was my father I know I'd be slutty, big the tattoos and piercings, and reading Andrea Dworkin at the dinner table, just to piss him off.

You said everything I was think about this ep. Clark boring but Lex and the room of J-Oness made up for the boring. I just loved seeing Lex's wonderful complex brain at work and Helen is so toast. I kinda fell bad for her trying to take on the Lex brain it just can't be done.

Lex brain=sexy

God yes. It's nice to see him acting SMART. *happy place* Very, very sexy. I completely agree.

I loved this room. I want one. But, I'd probably rearrange the details more. I mean, how many time can you really watch the stick figure fall off the stick bridge? Or get slammed by large phallic cars into guardrails and then getting suddenly wet on impact, blacking out and then waking up with their lips on yours.... Alright. Starting to see the appeal here, but still. Stick figures. Apparently Lex is smart enough to hide the necessary photoshop manips with the whipped cream. To be honest? I think this room, while guarenteed to send Clark running for the hills and provide fodder for any attempt to ever prove Lex mentally incompetent, is a good idea in an evil overlord sort of way. How many times have you watched characters and wished that they would just put all the facts together in a big room and come to the obvious conclusion.
Oy. And after that target practice comment, that last sentence sounds very bad.
But! This entire room is just further proof of the Clex. Which is good. Lana is distancing herself from ever being Clark's girlfriend by admitting that
a. She'd never really trust Clark if he told her he was an alien.
b. She'd freak out if Clark told her he was an alien.

Martha is definately freaking out. Heck, I'd be freaking out. Alien spaceship that gets you pregnant? I've seen the movie and it doesn't generally end well. Second opinions from people who are not country bumpkin OBs can be good.

The first scene with Helen caught my attention. It's the first time I remember seeing her without her glasses, and WHOA! I thought people were exaggerating about the eye thing. Everybody's got some facial asymmetry, hers is a tad more pronounced, perhaps. I don't like making fun of actors, but this is just statement of fact, one of her eyes is disproportionally bigger than the other.

All in all, a more subtle episode than usual, and I liked it. Heh. Lex was "alienated" in high school. Heh. Simple amusement is good.

I'd love to lock Chloe, Helen, and Lex together, get them drunk, and start them chatting. Two hours later, Clark wouldn't have a secret left. *g*

*snickers* God yes. Jonathan is a MORON. Hasn't he seen these movies before?????

*still giggling*

No doubt. Obviously, of course, the obsession is due to the frustrated hoyay. Once the gay sex commences, the obsession will find another outlet. Hopefully Clark's ass. :-)

Go forth and conquer! Mmm. Yum. Lex in jackboots. Ah, kink.

*dies laughing*

Farmboy ass. The New Obsession. HBO should air this.

*g*

Please explain the room

Jen,

Please explain "the room" and creepy Lex in a new fic. I think Helen should have been looking for the pod Lex popped out of, because this 'Lex' isn't the Lex I am used to. I don't think I'd sleep with this Lex, no matter how much Daddy was paying me. *g*

Its called wait another season before making Lex evil and creepy, writers! Hello! I am so disappointed, but I loved your explanation, Jen, thanks for making my night a little better.

*giggles*

Obsessed Lex is hot. Read latxcvi for her take on the Lex's reasoning sitch. And you know, he has to keep this stuff somewhere.

I'm assuming he keeps Clark's filched boxers in a drawer, though. *grins*

Yeah, the writers are on crack. It's much easier to ignore them. *G* and *hug* Think of it this way. So far, every time I think this is The Worst Ep, a worse ep comes along and I get all nostalgic for the one before. So. We have five left. One WILL make us think this one is very, very sane.

That's--not comforting, is it? *G*

HoYay! HoYay!

Ye gods, woman, what does he have to do to push you if he hasn't done it already? You have the patience of several saints. Just -- give them back their patience and start the Jonathan bloodbath already.

I'm still kinda sold on the notion that she's one of Lionel's whores. Maybe it's just me, though.

Next time he's unfairly mean to Lex, there WILL be an accient with the shredder. And it will be gratuitious. And that will make me happy. *g*

That appeals to me a LOT as well, though sadly, she probaly isn't. Dammit.

Ok the killing Johnathan in five fics and making it messier each time just cracked my shit up lol

*grins* It would be fun!

Lex's obsession

(Anonymous)
Loved the pretty pretty picture of Clark that Lex had in his magnificent hall of obsession.

And if Dr. Helen had a brain, she would have looked at the room and then packed her things and left.

Not because she doubted Lex's sanity, but because the room is proof that she will never never be as important to Lex as Clark is. Lex may like having Helen around (for whatever reason), but Clark is his obsession, and that room is Lex's altar to the most important thing in his life.

Personally my theory is that Lex is pursuing Helen because he needs to prove to himself and others that he can have a relationship, that he's not doomed to be alone. He doesn't want her so much as he wants what she symbolizes-- someone who believes in him.
