I read this earlier today and had to process. I'm really glad you continued it. The ending surprised me because it followed cannon and I thought this was going to be completely AU. The Brex relationship was interesting.

Thank you for coming back to comment!

*SPOILERS FOR THE STORY*

I didn't quite have an ending in mind for most of the time writing it- my outline ended after the scene in Clark's room. But then I thought that even with all the crap going on in their lives, they could still become who they were "destined" to be. Clark can get beyond the addiction to the RedK, and Lex was too damaged from everything. I thought that might be interesting, rather than make Lex a megalomaniac for no reason. Clark was able to find himself with the cave thing and be taught, get out of his home.

As for the Brex, I just love Brex! And having Bruce abandon him just just one more push for Lex to go bad.

Destiny- lord knows the show talks about it constantly!

Thanks again!

"And having Bruce abandon him just just one more push for Lex to go bad." This is exactly what I thought. Because Bruce kept wondering if he was helping him and wanted Lex to goto a professional.

The boys try to help each other, but in the long run they may just make it worse, like they did here. It was good for them while it lasted, but turned out to not be so good for them, what with Lex feeling all abandoned and Bruce feeling all confused.
