The Identical Series by [livejournal.com profile] lanning [Clark/Lex; au; pg to nc-17]
"My replacement. I am not a suitable heir."
"Your father is ... replacing you."
"Has replaced me. Has."


An AU tale of truly epic proportions, The Identical Series breaks away from the canon series shortly after Nicodemus (though references to future episodes are lightly dropped in here and there) to explore how one single action can change a man's entire fate. I, personally, am not all that fond of Clark/Lex and I still adored this series. Cook handles the characterisation skilfully, branching off into new realms without warping them beyond recognition; the banter between Clark and Lex is sheer brilliance, and Eli is one of the most fascinating OCs I've seen in a long time. It's a long series, but after reading the first section you'll be glad of this - it's highly addictive.

Note on ratings: the chapters can vary quite a lot in content. A vast majority of the time it is a PG-13/tentative M for violence, coarse language, and adult themes. Occasionally it crosses into NC-17 territory for explicit sexual material. And I'll stop sounding like a TV ratings ad about now.
