Challenge #2: The "Like a Virgin" Challenge  
Because we love our Woobie!Lex ... and two challenges are better than one.

Challenge #2: The "Like a Virgin" Challenge"

Lex Luthor. He's been around the sexual block so many times, there's a groove in the sidewalk. Some days he just doesn't feel as fresh anymore. But you can give him another chance ...

This challenge is about reclaiming virginity. Whether you like to believe Lex was hurt and abused as a child (bad, bad Lionel!) or that he succumbed to torment at boarding school (nasty boarding school boys!), you can give poor Woobie!Lex a second chance to feel like a virgin.

Because everyone deserves a second chance at a good first time ...

Rules - well, they're more like Guidelines really

1) Lex's first time was ... shall we say, less than perfect. Whether that means non-consensual or just bad, that's up to you. Give Lex a chance to get it right the second time (or the 400th time) by being with someone who can show him how it's supposed to feel.
2) Het or slash is fine.
3) Any length.
4) Finished stories may be posted to the community - under an LJ cut - or posted to an archive and linked. Please include title, author, pairing, rating, and a summary including any warnings (i.e. spoilers).
5) Finished stories should be posted to the community on or around: December 15, 2004.

Hm, I think I can hear Madonna warming up in the background ...

Questions, comments, or suggestions for future challenges ... let Lacey know.

Please drop a comment if you're planning to participate! Thanks!

Yay! You won't forget the deadline, then - and we'll be celebrating your day with a whole bunch of fics. *crosses fingers*

*grins* I also get SV for my birthday. Here's hoping it's not a rerun. *crosses fingers* *crosses fingers for fic, too*

LOL, I love your phrasing for each of the challenges. The absolut vodka comparison in the first one and the groove in the sidewalk bit in this one just cracked me up. Excellent challenges. And now I'm determined to see if there's actually a way to write a plausible virgin!Lex story that fits in with SV canon. Although, I think this "Like a Virgin" challenge may be the easier one of the two, LOL, but the first one is almost a dare.

Thanks for starting this community and issuing such great first challenges. I think this place is going to be a lot of fun, and I can't wait to see what people come up with.

Thanks for the kind comments, but they're not really necessary. I'm just selfish enough to want to READ all these fics, so starting a community seemed like a good way to get people writing. *g*

And yeah, the Absolut Virgin!Lex is kind of a dare, but I really will worship anyone who can do it and do it well. I have a few ideas, but it's a tough thing to pull off. Still, I think it can be done. *G*

Always, it is you with the twist ... like a knife in my back ...

Well, okay, I might have been channelling some long-dead Italian mafia father there, but twists are okay. *grin* I'm a flexible girl!

I'm going to try to participate with Vicky, too. So. Just dropping the note.
