Ship Manifesto: Chloe Sullivan (Smallville)  
Fandom: Smallville
Character: Chloe Sullivan
Pairings Included in Manifesto:
Chloe Sullivan / Clark Kent
Chloe Sullivan / Oliver Queen
Chloe Sullivan / Bart Allen

Blurb: Chloe: Hmmm, this is hard. There are many different things I love about Chloe's character on the show. I admire her desire to seek out the truth, her forthrightness, her loyalty to her family and friends. She's funny, smart and brave. She's also, nosey, bossy and thinks that she always knows best. What? I didn't say that she is perfect! I absolutely love the fact that she is a blank canvas, and isn't tied into the mythos. I honestly think that she makes Smallville.

Mythos, to me, is boring. It's predestined, and again, boring! (Unless, it is a Chlois story we are talking about. Did I mention that I love Chloe? lol) I love that in fandom you are able to explore different pairings.

Chloe / Clark: This was the first pairing that I read, and if I had to pick an OTP this would be it. Season 9 jerk!Clark kinda dimmed my love for this pairing, but I have hope that they will, at least, regain their friendship before the last season is over. Up until Season 9, I loved Clark and Chloe's relationship. They may not have always seen eye-to-eye, but they respected each other enough to work through their differences. They were always there for each other and had great chemistry.

I, basically, want Clark for Chloe because she wanted him so much. (If that makes any sense at all.) I rooted for her to end up with the guy that she (not-so-)secretly pined away for. And, early!Season!Clark? He was (absolutely adorable), kind, sweet, pretty innocent, and so clueless that you wanted smack him in the back of the head. lol

Fic Rec #1: Almost Clark
Pairing: Chloe Sullivan / Clark Kent (Kal-El)
Author: April (aka TheAmazingApe and apeygirl)
Link: http://planetoftheapril.blogspot.com/2008/10/almost-clark-intro.html
Rating/Warning(s): NC-17 Warning: This is a Chlois (Chloe as Lois) story, so if you don't care for that, this story isn't for you.

Why This Must Be Read: EPIC! This was the first story I read in this fandom, and it hooked me completely. This story veers off canon after season 6 - which, in my mind, makes the story more interesting. The dynamic between Chloe and Clark/Kal is very intriguing and brings up some valid questions re: just how separate the two identities are. I hope that you enjoy this story as much as I did.

Plus, as a bonus (continuation of the series)...

Fic Rec #2 How We Got Here
Pairing: Chloe Sullivan / Clark Kent
Author: April (aka TheAmazingApe and apeygirl)
Link: http://planetoftheapril.blogspot.com/2009/08/how-we-got-here-intro.html
Rating/Warning(s): NC-17

Why This Must Be Read: This story is canon up to Checkmate. I love the way that this story is told. I love Clark's pov on this story. It is great to see what is going on in his head. This story is pretty angsty but in all the best ways possible. (if that makes any sense. lol)

Fic Rec #3: Trust Me (series)
Pairing: Chloe Sullivan / Clark Kent
Author: Ellyfanfiction
Link: http://ellyfanfiction.blogspot.com/2008/05/trust-me-series.html
Rating/Warning(s): NC-17

Why This Must Be Read: This series is AU after Season 5 Hypnotic. I love the slow build of this series. This is one of those stories that I can read over and over again. :D

Fic Rec #4: Decade
Author: latetothpartyhp
Pairing: Chloe Sullivan / Clark Kent
Link: http://latetothpartyhp.livejournal.com/tag/fic%3A%20decade
Rating/Warning(s): PG-13 (WIP)

Why This Must Be Read: This story is plotty and amazing. I love the mystery surrounding Chloe and can't wait for the next chapter.

Fic Rec #5: Uninvited (An Unfortunate Slight)
Pairing: Chloe Sullivan / Clark Kent, Chloe Sullivan / Bizarro
Author: ivorykiss
Link: http://ivorykiss.livejournal.com/tag/fic%3A%20uninvited%20%28an%20unfortunate%20slight%29
Rating/Warning(s): NC-17 (WIP) 17/20 chapters up.

Why This Must Be Read: This is such a surprise pairing. I have a weakness for jealous!Clark. I really hope that this story is updated soon.

Chloe / Oliver: On to Ollie, one of the few canon pairings that I love. I feel like they just get each other. Oliver treats her like an equal and values her opinion. It sometimes squicks me when I think about him dating Lois though. ; )


Fic Rec #6: Reaction Time
Pairing: Chloe Sullivan / Oliver Queen
Author: April (aka TheAmazingApe and apeygirl)
Link: http://planetoftheapril.blogspot.com/2010/02/reaction-time-intro.html
Rating/Warning(s): NC - 17

Why This Must Be Read: I laughed my @ss off reading this story. I loved the whole vibe of it. Very funny, very addictive!

Fic Rec #7: Action Time
Pairing: Chloe Sullivan / Oliver Queen
Author: April (aka TheAmazingApe and apeygirl)
Link: http://planetoftheapril.blogspot.com/2010/11/action-time-intro.html
Rating/Warning(s): NC - 17 (WIP)

Why This Must Be Read: Sequel to Reaction Time. This goes more into the serious side of their relationship, but it is just as addictive.

Chloe / Bart: This is more of a rare pair, so whenever I come across this pairing I'm extremely happy. I wasn't expecting to love this pairing as much as I do, but I can totally see how Bart could be good for Chloe. Chloe is what I would consider a Type A personality, whereas, Bart is definitely a Type B. They could balance each other out. He's be able to get her to relax and have fun and she could help him focus on the tasks at hand. I love the fact that he has had a crush on her throughout the show. I think he would really be a good match for her.


Fic Rec #8: When Right Began
Pairing: Chloe Sullivan / Bart Allen
Author: sarcastic_fina
Link: http://sarcastic-fina.livejournal.com/178388.html#cutid1
Rating/Warning(s): PG-13

Why This Must Be Read: I wasn't looking to pick up a new OTP... but after reading this series I didn't have any choice. Seriously, this series made me love Bart.

Wow, you're so awesome for doing this. Especially giving us some Chloe/Bart because it's so rare (or maybe not anymore, haven't checked into the fandom for a year...) All these pairings are wonderful and I can't wait to get reading. Thanks so much for sharing!

BTW, beautiful graphics!

Thanks! :D I can pretty much ship Chloe with anyone, but these three guys are my favs. There should be more Chlart out there. I think I have scrounged up as much of it as I can. lol

This was a great idea for het_reccers to do. I had fun going through my bookmarks. *grins*
kanjo_girl: chole&ollie: protect uskanjo_girl on February 3rd, 2011 08:00 pm (UTC)
Same here. I practically ship her with everyone on the show, and even some crossovers (Supernatural with Sam). I just love her. She's the only reason why I watched the show until she had go and disappear. *shakes fists at Smallville writers*

I know, this community has such a great and active state here. I love their ideas and how they get others to share fics and such.
