Talk:Smallville

Hi Smallville fans! I stopped watching the show somewhere in the...fourth season, so this summary is hopelessly out of date, but I thought I'd at least throw something down if only so the page didn't look so empty. --Punk 07:44, 9 October 2008 (UTC)

Location of Smallville

Am I right in remembering that the show more or less established that Smallville was located in Kansas, something that had never previously been established? --Betty 06:45, 3 November 2008 (UTC)

Yes! They definitely put Smallville in Kansas, with Metropolis either two or four hours away, depending on who was driving or what year it was. --Punk 03:48, 4 November 2008 (UTC)

Warrior Angel

Huh, I can't find Zahra/hackthis' Warrior Angel fics. I could have SWORN she was the one who wrote all those Warrior Angel/Devilicus fics. Am I dreaming?--Punk 03:59, 18 November 2008 (UTC)

Notable Works

We're gonna need a Clark/Lex page pretty soon, the list of fics here is a tad bit biased ;) Does someone have any non Clex fics to add? --Xenakis 23:47, 29 November 2008 (UTC)

I agree-- I was trying last night to think of gen or het fics to add, but honestly, I couldn't remember many except ones written by people I was friends with in SV fandom (Pearl-o's early Chloe/Lana, Basingstoke's Pete/Victoria, Sarah T's Lana gen stories, Te's Lionel/Lex) and I didn't want to stack the list with too many personal faves. In terms of non-Clex slash, maybe "Schmoop," Caroline B's Clark/Whitney? -- Liviapenn 00:00, 30 November 2008 (UTC)
Here, btw, are the results of an early SV fic awards voting thing: The Treasury. Although not a lot of people ended up voting/commenting, the nominations for het/minor character/other slash/ep coda, etc. might be helpful for early notable works... -- Liviapenn 01:26, 30 November 2008 (UTC)

This page needs a Clark/Lex subpage

Subpages for all the characters (which, face it, tend to be canontraps), but not for CLex? Blasphemy! --Sherrold 19:44, 1 December 2008 (UTC)

How/how many to list of LJ comms

I think if the main page becomes too cluttered it should be put on a subpage. But not just linked to external sites. Those can vanish, and think the lists here should be a history of existing and past communities at the wiki itself, even if it duplicates info for now. Also, newbieguides (provided they are still updated) will only list active communities, but obviously with this being also a fan history wiki lists here would also have defunct and previous communities and archives, unlike current guides.--Ratcreature 13:41, 28 February 2009 (UTC)

Good point about the history. I didn't actually remove any comm links, but moved them to the Lex char page (since they were Lex-centric comms). But maybe it's more useful to have one page of comms, and then link the char pages/pairing pages and such to that page? (just wondering, 'cuz on the SGA pages there's duplication, and some comms are only on the character pages; scattering them is inefficient...) --Xparrot 14:39, 28 February 2009 (UTC)
For large fandoms with lots of stuff, I like the idea of having one page with a long list that is sectioned appropriately to find things easily (like to see whether is an entry for that comm or for external links), and then on the pages and subpages itself some comms still may be mentioned in the narrative if they were central and suchand stuffhappened there, but there wouldn't be lots of scattered lists for comms.--Ratcreature 15:43, 28 February 2009 (UTC)
This makes sense to me, but in that case some of the pre-existing pages need re-organization - for instance the SGA comms page lists pairing comms but not individual character comms (of which there are 6 on the John Sheppard page alone.) It would be nice if there were some forum where we might get group consensus on organization (...I'm a librarian by nature, I like to do these things efficiently!) --Xparrot 16:56, 28 February 2009 (UTC)
