Last Minute Smallville Fun


The hiatus is almost over, and come this friday, for better or for worse, we're back to new episodes.  So, here's a suggestion for a little bit of fun in the remaining few days until we have new material to chew on.

We'll call this bit of whimsy "My Favorites".  In your reply, list the following:

  • Your favorite fanmade video for SV (and a link, if possible)
  • Your favorite fanfic, and what the pairing is (also a link, if possible)
  • Your favorite Smallville Promo Picture.  Include the picture in your reply, or a link to it
  • Your favorite official still from a Smallville episode.  Follow the instructions for the promo picture.
  • Your favorite candid shot of a member of the Smallville cast.  Again, same instructions
  • Your favorite Smallville episode from each season.  Just pick one.
  • Your favorite Smallville guest star - villian (pictures are welcome)
  • Your favorite Smallville guest star - good guy (pictures are welcome)
  • Your favorite song used for a SV scene.  If you have a link to it, even better
And for anyone feeling really, really ambitious, I'll throw out this challenge:  Give a Title to an upcoming SV episode, and provide a synopsis for it.  Include any guest stars of your choice. :)

I'll be updating this post with my own contributions later tonight.  Have fun!!

Oh, and there's no requirement that you need to do all of the above.  Do all, do some, do one. 


ETA:  And here are my choices:

My favorite fanmade video is a MUST SEE for all Clark fans.  To me, this video is one of the very best at capturing Clark's journey, though its heavier on the early stuff then the later stuff, Ryan (who created it) has been good at keeping it updated.
"23" by Ryan Deffley

My favorite fanfic is Clex, and its Mercy, by Koi.  Warning, its not an easy read, or a pleasant story.  I like reading Clex, maybe because there was no chance of it happening on the show, and so fanfic writers can take it anywhere they want it to go.  And since I found their on screen relationship to be so complex and twisted, I tend to like my Clex fanfic on the twisted and dark side.

Favorite Eps:

S1: the Pilot, S2: Lineage, S3:  Exile, S4:  Transference
S5: Vengeance, S6: Nemesis, S7: Descent, S8: Turbulence
S9 (so far):  Rabid

Favorite Guest Star (Villian):  James Marsters as Brainiac


Favorite Guest Star (Good Guy):  Phil Morris as Martian Manhunter


Favorite Use of Song:  "A Message" by Coldplay, in Mortal (a virtual tie between this and "Deeper Water" by Minnie Driver, in Unsafe, but I couldn't find a link to that scene on youtube).
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dYTK3MXkEQY

And my SV episode is:
 

RESTITUTION, written by Al Septien & Turi Meyer, directed by Greg Beeman

Clark is ambushed while on a routine rescue, and wakes up to find himself face-to-face with someone from his past, a very much alive Lex Luthor (guest star, Michael Rosenbaum).  Lois finds herself receiving some unlikely help from nemesis, Tess Mercer, in her ongoing investigation into Intergang, and they're both shocked to discover who is really pulling the strings of the crime syndicate.  Also, Martha Kent (returning regular, Annette O'Toole), bids farewell to Washington DC and returns home to the Kent family farm.  Allison Mack, Michael McKean and Phil Morris also star.

I currently have a house full of family for Passover that I'm sort of hiding from. I may have to answer this entry with several replies (or I'll edit this one).

I'm actually not big on fan-made videos, but this is just made of awesome: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I4VAeZ33Xhk

I don't know how to embed videos into a reply.

My fav youtube vids are usually just clips from the show and I don't read fanfics. Not really high on promo pics(I usually find then overdone having the actors pose for them, why not just take shots on site and use those as promos)

Your favorite Smallville episode from each season.

1 - Pilot
2 - Heat
3 - Perry
4 - Crusade
5 - Exposed
6 - Combat
7 - Bizarro
8 - Bloodline
9 - Idol

just for the hell of it my Smallville pooplist for each season
1 - Crush *loses by default, some episode has to be the worst*
2 - Calling/Exodus
3 - Exile
4 - Ageless
5 - Reckoning
6 - Promise
7 - Traveler
8 - Power
9 - Pandora

Your favorite Smallville guest star - villian

Hard to say I thought Brainiac was great in himself but I thought the ways they used him at times was terrible. I probably would go with Morgan Edge in Phoenix(as bad as I thought Calling-Exile was I actually liked Phoenix)

Your favorite Smallville guest star - good guy
Perry

Your favorite song used for a SV scene.
Fly - Mark Jospeh, Lucy

I almost asked for the pooplist, but I decided to try and keep the questions positive. Your pooplist actually contains 3 episodes I love a lot, LOL

Morgan Edge was definitely a great villian, and I love Rutger Hauer. He's be a top 5 villian for me, for sure.

Re: best. episode title & description. ever. ...
OMG, so LOVE that! I added my own description, and I think you'll definitely see a few similarities in what our dream eps are. In fact, we picked the same writers and director.

GMTA!!

Give a Title to an upcoming SV episode, and provide a synopsis for it.:

jeannev
Mar. 30th, 2010 02:28 am (UTC)
Hmmm, now why would you pick that first picture? Let me think...LOL

Hey, we had the same choices for S4-S7. Go us!

Hurt was such a great song choice, and really added to that amazing ending of Shattered.

Awww, the boys working together would be great.

Favorite fanmade video for SV: that fabulous Clark vid from Talitha: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DTns3tzo8EE&feature=PlayList&p=0ADE3A928AB3A7F9&index=34
Favorite fanfic, and what the pairing is: the pairing is Clex, the writer is Kate. I have several favorites from her but let’s say “Going home” http://mskatej.livejournal.com/166971.html
Favorite Smallville Promo Picture: Err... this is huge.
Favorite official still from a Smallville episode:

Transference
Splinter
Labyrinth
Apocalypse
Identity
Idol?
We have the same choices here:
Favorite Smallville guest star - villian: James Marsters as Brainiac
Favorite Smallville guest star - good guy: Phil Morris as John Jones
Favorite song used for a SV scene: Weapon used in Exodus: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1CsD4TTYKdA
I notice a glaring lack of Oliver in "your" episode. LOL. What a shame.
I'll certainly watch your choice of video and read your choice of fanfic.
jeannev
Mar. 30th, 2010 03:26 am (UTC)
Talitha's vid's are magnificent. I could easily have picked 4 or 5 of hers. She's amazing.

And Kate is a terrific writer. I love her Clex and Clois.

And OMG, I totally love that song. That was a superb use of music. I miss the source music on the show.

I sense a little sarcasm in your Oliver comment, LOL Yeah, I didn't include him. He isn't needed for what I have in mind.

I think you'll really like my choice of video. But heed my warnings on the fanfic. Its brilliant, but not an easy read.

Oh and which episode is Restitution? Gotta see that.

I SO want to do this! Just.. no time this morning. This will take some research, and turning on some dormant brain cells. :)

Love the whole challenge though. You are an awesome SV fan. *nods*
jeannev
Mar. 30th, 2010 04:42 pm (UTC)
You can always do it when you have the time. I'm dying to know what you come up with.

And thanks. I think a lot of people consider me a bad SV fan because I'm so critical, but I don't think one has to love everything about a show to be a good fan.

Mar. 30th, 2010 08:56 pm (UTC)
This looks fun. :)

Oh, fav vid category is difficult. :/
I'm going with That's Not My Name, Clark vid by talitha78.
The rest of my favourites are bookmarked here.
Love your pick, that's a brilliant vid!

Fav fanfic (this is hard!)...
A Life More Ordinary by Jenn. An oldie, but a goodie. :) Short and I keep going back to reread it every once in a while.

Favorite Smallville guest star - villian. That's easy, Brainiac. He was so deliciously manipulative.
Favorite Smallville guest star - good guy. Umm, I'm not sure, but I do *love* Martian Manhunter, so I'll go with him.

Must go hunt down links for the rest of the answers.
jeannev
Mar. 30th, 2010 09:04 pm (UTC)
I adore that vid by talitha. She's so brilliant. I just showed that vid to my sister the other day, and she was blown away.

Can't wait to see what else you come up with. :)

ETA: Links being BAD. Will have to fix this later. Grr...

Oh my, what a great idea! I've posted my favourites here http://jlvsclrk.livejournal.com/33484.html

As for an episode, I'll call it Redemption
All hope seems lost as the battle as Darkseid's invasion plans reach fruition. To make matters worse, an old nemesis returns from the dead. Can Clark and Lex put aside their differences to defeat their common foe?
jeannev
Mar. 31st, 2010 06:31 pm (UTC)
You had amazing choices!

Your episode looks very much like tasabian's. GMTA!!!
