Chlark Fanfic: Crisis, Prologue


I must be mad, starting a new story when I have three others on the go, but once I was presented with the idea, I couldn't resist writing it.

This is my take on Clark's Red K Summer.  Be warned, it's not a happy-smiley fun story at. all.  In fact, it's pretty much the darkest thing I've ever written.



Title:              Crisis

Author:          BabyDee
Pairing:          Chlark/Kaloe

Rating:           NC-17

Warnings:     Graphic sex, non-con/rape, angst.  Kal isn’t going to come off very nice in this story (see the warnings), so if you’re a fan of his, you might want to look away now.

Timeline:      Season 2-3 (Exodus – Exile; Clark’s RedK Summer)

Disclaimer:   All characters belong to the CW & DC comics. 

Summary:     A violent encounter between Chloe and Clark threatens to destroy their friendship forever.

Feedback:      …is much appreciated. J

 

 

This is for ellyfanfic , who wanted to get my take on Clark’s RedK Summer. 

 

Author’s note:

Someone (I can’t remember who) said that every Chlark author should have a RedK Summer of Fun fic in their collection.  I must confess, I’ve shied away from it because everyone else has covered it and done such a fantastic job that I didn’t think I’d be able to bring anything new to the table.  I eventually came up with this, but by no means is it a fun story.  It’s dark, angsty and thought-provoking, but I hope that if nothing else, it makes an interesting read.

 

 

 

Prologue
8:30pm, Saturday

 

 

Diane Warnock, the triage nurse at Smallville Medical Centre, glanced at the clock, willing the last thirty minutes of her shift to tick by faster.  She’d been here since noon, and the afternoon shift was the worst of the lot because it pretty much took her away from her family for the entire day.  She sighed and prepared her handover notes for the next person coming on duty, glancing at the clock again.  9:00pm couldn’t come fast enough for her.

 

There were ten minutes left of her shift, and Diane grabbed her coat and car keys.  As soon as Rachel came in for the night shift, she would be out the door and on her way home. 

 

She was closing the admissions book when the girl walked in.  She was young, probably no more than sixteen, with short, choppy blonde hair that was far too bright a shade of platinum to be natural.  And that was the only bright thing about her.  Her face was downcast, and she had her arms wrapped around herself in a classic protective gesture.

 

Diane’s heart sank as the girl slowly approached her desk.  She knew that demeanour anywhere, had seen it enough times to know what had happened. 

 

“Good evening, dear,” she said, trying to sound pleasant without being too jolly.  “Can I take your name, please?” 

 

“My name is Chloe Sullivan,” she said quietly. 

 

“And how can I help you today, Chloe?”

 

The girl, Chloe, swallowed, and then looked up at her with a bleak expression in her red-rimmed hazel green eyes.  When she spoke, her answer was barely more than a whisper. 

 

“I’ve just been raped.”

Yay! It's too late here for me to read this tonight, but I'll check it out first thing tomorrow morning, when my eyes are open:-). Thanks!

Anytime, babes. Thanks so much for the suggestion - it's really forcing me to flex my writing chops! :-)

WOW!!! Got to repeat: What a start!!!

hey, watch it! ... nah. :P
Just kidding.

Oooh...
“I’ve just been raped.”
...Those four words made me shiver.

That was one line that was really hard for me to write. The whole story is really challenging me creatively, but I'm determined to get this done.

Thanks for commenting!

Hi, I want to tell you that is amazing that you are writing another fic, but I'm passing on this one, I don't read non-con.

Hugs!!!!

No worries, babes - I completely understand! :-)

What does "non-con" mean?

Non-consensual sex; basically where one partner doesn't want it.

Ahhhh! I stepped away from fandom for a bit and forgot all about this! Great start, thank you very much!

Thanks for the prompt, Elly - I'd never have considered writing something like this ever if it wasn't for you!

My gosh. That hit me hard...

With those four words, I opened myself up to a whole new writing experience. I have no idea how you all manage to write dark, haunting stories, because this one twists the knife in me with every update.

Hope you find it a good read, though, and thanks for commenting! :-)

I think that's the attraction to a dark story. It was hard on me to write Kryptonian Nature for reasons similar to that. It was hard for me to see Clark in such a vulnerable state, and I put him there. Then there's Kara's struggle, and the aftermath of what happened between them when they weren't themselves. It's not easy to write or read, but I think if you can get through either, it's worth it in the end. I think this story will be worth it in the end. It's certainly compelling.

Well it's taken me this long to read this, not that I wasn't interested. I'm just not a Chlark fan, but I am a Chloe fan and thus have to read. Glad I don't have to work til late tomorrow so I can finish this in one sitting. lol
I've read your other work on Chlollie so know I am not going to be disappointed.
Thank you for sharing.

Can't believe I missed this comment! Many thanks for taking a chance on an unfamiliar 'ship - I hope you find it an interesting read :-)

I have to tell you once again how much I adore this fic, dark and angsty as it is—and how much I'm looking forward to the sequel. (I hope you post at the end of the previous fic on K-Site to say when you upload the new one, as it'll alert me.)

I got started writing my own Exile AU this last fall, and though I had to put it on pause for a while, I'm looking to get back to it. Thing is, the more I brainstorm, the more I find I've borrowed a few things from your fic, lol. I cannot think of any more logical consequence from Chloe turning down Lionel's agreement (after having agreed) than her father fired and blacklisted, nor Lionel yanking the equipment that he undoubtedly provided the Torch. It's simply the most logical scenario there is. So I hope you don't mind that I borrow it! I also have a line that's a bit of a nod to your fic (Martha asking if Clark hurt Chloe). I'm taking my story in quite a different direction, but it was just perfect to have that line in there. I hope you don't mind me using those! :)

Hi again, and thanks for the great comments! Still working on Crisis behind the scenes, and will definitely give you a heads-up once I start posting again.

Happy for you to run with my Crisis ideas! Send us a link to your story, I'd love to check it out when I get a spare moment. :-)

Yay! I linked to the completed fic in my multifandom recs post (it's done by genre/trope rather than fandom). Only getting started in compiling fic recs, but Crisis was a shoo-in for the Trauma category. :) (Not that a lot of people look at the post, but I like to have it to link my friends--and to keep track of the fics myself.)

I'd love to share! Since it's a WIP, though, I haven't posted it anywhere publicly (just in a Google doc that my beta and any other interested friends can view). I'd be happy to link you if I got an e-mail address to send it to (well, you could find me easily enough on IRC too, as I hang out in #yuletide on Slashnet, but I don't know if you've ever done IRC). I've had my usual beta keeping an eye on it in general, but they haven't seen SV in a while, so I'll need to get hunting for a different beta to go over characterization. The actual wording and all that is subject to change as I wouldn't run it past anyone for that until it's all complete (who knows if that ever will happen--I've never actually finished anything as long as this is looking to be, 14k is the longest fic I've ever finished). So far I've got 7k done--and it's only getting going.
