So when I wrote and posted, Every Time, I had unknowingly used a concept that had been done before.
Someone in SVdom was gracious enough to email me to tell me that they enjoyed my fic, but was I aware of this other story? And if not, would I like the link? Of course, I said, I would love the link. So I clicked through to Achilles' Heel by X-parrot (xparrot) and was completely blown away. The same concept, but with a starker Lex, more precise, much more epic, which is what these two are all about. Just absolutely stunning.
She posted this in 11/02, almost four years ago. And here I come and blindly just water down the whole idea. *sigh* So yeah, go read hers--much, much better.
