When you see this, post an excerpt from as many random works-in-progress as you can find lying around. Who knows? Maybe inspiration will burst forth and do something, um, inspiration-y.

marvel - purple barton

do what now

Title: Ilex vomitoria
Summary: "Dammit, it was his house, it was his topiary, he could throw up wherever he liked."
Fandom: Smallville
Word Count: 357
Rating/Warnings: R, AU, language
Pairing: One-sided Lex/Lana, Clark/Lana
A/N: I wrote this years and years ago, and then sat on it. I intended to do more with it, but I've come to like it as it stands as a Lex character study. Ilex vomitoria is the scientific name for yaupon holly; the name comes from the American Indian practice of brewing the leaves into a tea, drinking massive quantities, then throwing up (though it's not an actual emetic), in order to bring mental clarity. You can still get yaupon tea, but I'm not brave enough to try it.
