Special rec: 26/31
Author’s Summary: Chloe and Lex and the challenge that is head trauma in Smallville. Almost gen, but with that lovely tension that I thought might actually go somewhere with these two on the show. Early Smallville.
Why This Must Be Read: I love early season Smallville and I truly believed that the chemistry between Chloe and Lex would actually lead to something someday. This fic is a great example of said ‘something’. It takes that ‘verbal judo’ of theirs and shows both their vulnerabilities and potential friendship. It simply sizzles with intelligent UST.
