Random updates, the night before class starts

 1. I'm trying the federated thing but not super sure how it works/how I will use it in a way that is not like Dreamwidth. Me: https://fandom.stopthatimp.net/channel/rivkat

2. Along with Black Lightning, I am enjoying S1 of The Orville far more than I probably should. It's not exactly good, but it is trying one thing with total commitment (being Star Trek with sitcom-office-interactions among the crew who are after all doing a job that in their universe is just a job).  I'm oddly charmed.

3. I just saw an announcement for a con called FanWorks and felt good about being a norm entrepreneur.  I do think there was a point in calling the varied kinds of fan creativity we wanted to preserve "fanworks"--"works" has a politics around labor and desert, and while it takes the focus off of the process of creation, which is valuable in and of itself, I think we needed that at the time because it was the material and immaterial artifacts that we needed to publicly protect and defend.

OMG a Smallville story (chapter)

Locked Room Mystery (6410 words) by rivkat
Chapters: 3/3
Fandom: Smallville
Rating: General Audiences
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Characters: Clark Kent, Lex Luthor
Additional Tags: Futurefic, President Lex, Eight crazy nights
Summary:

for daria234: Smallville futurefic where President Luthor, due to threat of natural disaster, is stuck for hours with that annoyingly ethical reporter Clark Kent. Since Lex is smart and Clark is a crap liar, once they're alone in a room together, Lex figures out that Clark must know something about him pre-memory-loss. Basically, Lex is brilliant and there's loads of UST (or ST that gets resolved ;) but also suspicion or antagonism.


Chapter notes: Um, ok. I think this might be my love letter to Smallville, not my first and not my last fandom and in many ways better for those things. Sorry it was so delayed, but sometimes you can't tell the story until it's ready for you.
