Kira again. Apologies for the blackout; it's been a crazy week. To make up for it, here's the first in a series of Smallville fivers by Derek Dean: Five-Minute "Unsafe," which Derek assures me is one of the worst episodes of Smallville, ever. Let's enjoy!

As fair warning to everyone, this and the others aren't like the fivers I normally write.
"Please, Aslan," said Lucy, "what do you call soon?"
"I call all times soon," said Aslan; and instantly he vanished away and Lucy was alone with the Magician.

Yeah, Derek's Smallville fivers compare with his usual stuff the way my Voyager fivers from, say, 2001 compare with the stuff I do now. They're shorter, punchier, and less careful to cover every aspect of the plot. There's something to be said for that style -- it's what made this site popular, after all -- and when I half-called Buffy S3 from Kelonzi, the idea was that when I had time I would do the episodes with this sort of back-to-basics approach. (It's harder than it sounds. My one attempt so far, Five-Minute "The Wish," isn't short or punchy at all.)

Great fiver, Derek. I think I told you that like 90 years ago when you first sent it....

I don't even watch the show and that was really funny xD
Clark: Now we're married and we can have the S-word!
Alicia: What do swords have to do with anything?
Alicia: Notice how I was shot on the right side? That means I'm still alive.
Clark: So you'll be a recurring character?
Alicia: As long as I can fit into my sexy, sexy lingerie.
:lol: Nice one Derek :mrgreen:
Alexia: You have to laugh, or you'd kill yourself xD
Lostoyannaya: Yes. Now take that noose off your neck and get down from the chair. IN THAT ORDER.

Evil Mwahaha-Psychiatrist Villain: You're cured! Just don't go back and see Clark or you'll regress.
Alicia: Yay! I'm cured! Where's Clark?

Another favorite was the second passage Alexia quoted
My 5MV webpages My novel fivers list


“There must have been a point in early human history when it was actually advantageous to, when confronted with a difficult task, drop it altogether and go do something more fun, because I do that way too often for it to be anything but instinct.” -- Isto Combs
