Hello. I am a fan of most sci-fi shows and of comics. As can be seen below my stories tend to cross quite a few different media. It use to be that Smallville was amongst my favourite shows and it still is up to about season 6. It is after that I felt it lost its way to the point I will not be watching season 9. Alongside that you can include Doctor Who, Stargate, Battlestar Galactica both the original and updated versions. I could name a whole raft of others like Star Trek, Babylon 5, Buffy(up to her death in season 5) and Angel etc etc. I think you get the idea. Since I started here my tastes and belief in certain ships have changed. Like shifting from Clark/Lois to Superman/Wonder Woman. I won't delete my earlier Clois stories but I think it unlikely I'll ever add to them now. As for why I changed there is no simple explanation I can give you. It was a combination of a few things. Simplest explanation I can give is that over time people and opinions change.
Also as for my Clark/Chloe story I wrote that stemmed from the fact I love Chloe. Of all the things Smallville have done (good and bad) the best one is the invention of the character of Chloe Sullivan and the fact they spent season 8 desecrating her character is one of the reasons I have had it with the show. Also on top of that it allowed me to merge that love with the one I have for Power Girl, the scandalously overlooked member of the super family, and yes I know she has her own comic book before someone mentions it. Basically the idea hit me to have Chloe as Smallville's version of Power Girl and my muse demanded I write it which I did. Over a 100,000 words in two months. Possibly the most inspired I have ever been to write and I wanted to write one story where she and Clark kinda got their happy ever after.
Periodically if ideas hit me I will write those too. Like my Star Trek TNG story or my Stargate story. By the way I love all Daniel/Sam ship stories. Tragedy that it was never done on the show but hey that is what fan fiction is for.
As for why I started writing it was actually reading the stories on this site that inspired me to write my own take on some of my favourite characters. That and I have way too much free time on my hands. Feel free to review my stories but please be gentle, writing was never my strongest subject at school. For all those who have sent in reviews thank you very much. I appreciate them a lot.
For those of you who enjoyed my Superman AS series of stories I should mention that I have basically given up on them but I was contacted by Insane Writer of Chaos(Insane Writer of Chaos http://www.fanfiction.net/u/143209/ ) who wished to continue the series.

STORIES IN PROGRESS
Buffy X-Overs: The Corridors of a Twisted Mind; A collection of my stranger ideas.
X-Overs: SmallvilleX Evolution Year 3.1: Hellfire Burns Eternal.
POSSIBLE FUTURE STORIES. I thought I would add a section where I can note down my story ideas when they hit me. Also my ideas can be up for adoption if it gives you inspiration. PM me if that's the case.
Zod AU(Smallville): In the episode Zod Clark's escape from the Phantom Zone has a little detour meaning he shows up years later(from his perspective) and he's not alone. Probably just a one-off where Clark shows up with girlfriend/wife with possibly a whole family in tow. Not sure what fandom his significant other would come from. I'll take suggestions. PM me.
The Amazing Spider-Woman: Take the elements of the Amazing Spider-Man movie, twist them around and you can get the origin story for Spider-Gwen.
Superman/He-Man x-over. Might be worth the effort of trying one. Roughly based on the JL/MOTU comic x-over(as awful as it was). In the comics, at the end, everyone goes their separate ways with the JL not lifting a finger to save an Eternia conquered by Hordak but what if Supes decides he can't leave it like that and goes to Eternia with the Masters to help them. I really do think it would have to be set on Eternia for the most part. Or I suppose you could start a story with Adora being exiled to her mother's home of Earth for her crimes as a Captain of the Horde. Though you'd get back to Eternia at some point. Or Superman Returns sorta where Supes' damaged ship crash lands on Eternia.
Slaves(DC Comics): When he is young Clark is captured by the Gordanians and becomes a slave. While he is there he meets another slave. Koriand'r of Tamaran.
Serpant's Lair AU(Stargate): What if the Tok'ra operatives aboard Apophis' ship(which we only learned later there were) found the badly wounded Daniel and helped save him and themselves. How would that change things?
Ripple Effect(Stargate): I always wanted to see Sam meet an alternative version of herself that remained host to Jolinar.
Superman/Stargate x-over. Awhile ago someone asked if I could think of one and i have 2 ideas. 1; Basically Man of Steel with SG-1 involved and perhaps Clark knowing either Sam, Jack or Daniel from when they were kids or 2; Kal-El is one of the few survivors of a Krypton destroyed by the Goa'uld, surviving however he can until he runs into SG-1(and while Kryptonians would be physically much stronger and durable than humans or even Jaffa it wouldn't be truly superpowered).
Window of Opportunity AU(Stargate). Since I'm a Sam/Daniel fan what about the what if they are the two that get stuck in the time loop.
Stargate AU. Ever notice how Hathor referred to herself in the plural 'we'. What if that is because, like her sister Egeria, she rejected the Gao'uld and had a truly symbiotic relationship with her host and actually founded the Tok'ra along with Egeria before being imprisoned by Ra. What difference does it make to the course of events when this Hathor is freed?
What's stranger? Gargoyles or an alien(Superman/Gargoyles x-over): All the strange goings on in New York draw the attention of young and upcoming reporter Clark Kent. Little does he know just how deep the rabbit hole is he is about to enter. Little does anyone else know just how unique Clark Kent is. Or on their World Tour the Gargoyles and Elisa are sent by Avalon to Kansas to protect one very special boy.
It's Funny How Life Turns Out(Superman): There was once an Elseworlds story where Maxima finally managed to get Superman just as she always wanted and he chose to stay on Almerac to protect Earth from a powerful empire he had made an enemy of. Several years later, after learning of his father's death, Clark returns for the funeral. How has life turned out for him, Maxima and the people he left behind on Earth?
Speed meets Steel(Flash/Superman x-over): An attempt to get a version of Superman into the Arrow/Flash verse. In the midst of what seems to be a serial killer on the loose in Central City the possible key to solving the crimes could lie in the recent arrival in town of a young reporter named Clark Kent.(And he would be young. This would be like right at the start of his career before Superman was really well-known. Perhaps even before he's figured out how to fly.) Or a what if. What if the Kents are Barry's closest living relatives and they take him in after his mother is killed. Or when Clark leaves Smallville to pursue his reporting career it is Central City he goes to not Metropolis.
Crashing Cousins(Supergirl tv show): After a hard day's work capturing another alien escapee Kara and Alex come home to find Kara's cousin, Superman, crashed out on the couch. What is going on?(Perhaps it's my overriding love of Superman but I would love to see more of him actually interacting with his cousin. I already have a pet peeve over the fact he left it to other people to raise her rather than doing it himself(and yes I know of and can think of good reasons why he did it but still Kara is the only blood relative he thought he had left. And you know his aunt Astra, even if she's not a blood relation, if you start before her death.) I suppose my pet peeve also leads into the obvious 'what if' story. What if Clark had raised Kara? Or the other what if. What if Kara had crashed down at the same time as Kal and the events of the show happened with her having to look after an adolescent Kal?
A Superman/Star Wars x-over of some sort. Want to try one eventually. Starting with baby Kal-El crashing down somewhere in the SW-verse. Or an older him during the Clone Wars. I have a couple of rough ideas only.
Harry Potter and the Cursed Man: Harry is rescued from the Dursleys by a figure known in Wizarding history as the Cursed Man. Who is he and what is his surprising connection to Harry?
What if(somehow, perhaps with Andromeda suppose to be Harry's Godmother) baby Harry ends up being raised by the Tonks family because lets face it Nymphadora would be a great, funny big sister to have. Plus they are actually related distantly(Harry's grandmother was a Black). Petunia is the only close family Harry has left.
The DADA teacher from Hell(literally): Magik from the X-Men is the new DADA teacher at Hogwats because lets face it few people know more about the Dark Arts than her.
Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Witch(Got a weird thing for HP fanfics at the minute): Post OOP. Fed up of being locked away with the Dursleys Harry sneaks out on his 16th birthday to have some fun and bumps into a half-blood like himself, a witch from his year at school; Tracey Davis(read a few Harry/Daphne stories where Daph's BF Tracey is always the fun, frivolous one and god knows Harry could do with someone like that who helps bring out his more fun side and shows him that even in the midst of war how to have a good time, live life to full and whatnot).
Superman/Smallville/Harry Potter x-over: Martha is Lilly's estranged twin sister...and a Slytherin(just for funsies. Well funsies and the idea that crossing Martha when it comes to her family is the very worst idea ever). What does she do in the wake of her sister's untimely death? And what happens to her nephew Harry?(can't forget him can we?) Or different family connection; Amelia Bones is tracking down the last of her and Susan's family after losing so many members in the War and track down a defunct squib line to one Martha Kent(it's the red hair obviously that's the connection).
Convergence: Based on the DC event. With characters trapped inside the domes for a year a chance to perhaps have some unusual pairings of people trapped who would not normally spend enough time together to get to pair up. Not sure who though...
Star Wars: Twins United(An AU Star Wars story): Don't know if anyone else has ever had this idea but what if at the beginning of Star Wars Leia gets away and meets Obi-Wan like she was suppose to. How does it pan out when Obi-Wan realises that this is the time to reunite the twin children of Anakin Skywalker? What does he tell them? What sort of conversation does he have with Bail Organa? How do they stop the Death Star? Does he get to live long enough to train Luke and Leia? Food for thought.
InjusticeX: Gods Amongst Us(Superman/X-Men): After a terrible tragedy loses Clark his wife and their unborn child he begins to see that perhaps Magneto is right. Humans aren't up to the job of running the planet. Obviously inspired by the Injustice: GAU world this comes from thinking what would it take for Clark to ally himself with Magneto in bringing about a world of mutant(and alien) supremacy.
Orphans(Smallville/Superman/Guardians of the Galaxy x-over): Have 3 ideas. One; Clark is abducted the same day as Peter and they end up stuck and become friends and partners in crime. Two; Clark escapes the prison of the Phantom Zone only to end up the Kyln. With no idea where he is or how to get home he's stuck until one day a 'Terrain' arrives who might have the means to get Clark home; the Legendary Star Lord. Three; Thanos got his hands on the baby Kal-El and raised him and now Kal has to sort out the mess his 'sisters', Gamora and Nebula, are making.
Cat and Mouse(Or Alien and Spider)(Superman/Spider-Woman x-over): A Superman early in his career, an unseen vigilante before he even gets the name, sets his sights on capturing the most wanted criminal in America; Spider-Woman. Inspired by Edge of the Spider-verse #2 because Spider-Gwen is just the most awesome idea Marvel have had in like a decade at least.
Not quite the Hereafter(DCAU/Marvel x-over): AU JLU episode Hereafter. Toyman's weapon doesn't send Superman to the future but to a different universe entirely.(A/N: I've seen several stories where a Marvel character ends up in the DCAU. Thought it was time to reverse the idea.)
Help from a (Spider-)friend(Spider-Man): Peter's got his body back from Doc Ock and has defeated the Green Goblin and now he has to try and put his life back together. He gets help from someone who knows what it's like to have their life stolen from them in the shape of Jessica Drew. And in the process the friends just might become more.(A/N: It just seems to me Jess is the one person who knows what Pete's gone through lately(you know with her being replaced by the Skrull Queen) and it would have been an opportunity for Marvel to pair them up if they had wanted to. Plus I think it would be an interesting pairing to have seen done.)
SmallvilleX: The Nova Roma Chronicles(Smallville(kinda)/X-Men Evolution x-over): In my SmallvilleX universe I wrote Jor-El visited Nova Roma, overthrew Selene and in the process grew quite fond of the nation and its people so what if instead of the Kents he chose to send his son to Nova Roma instead. How do events pan out differently?
Lady Sif of Smallville(Superman(maybe MOS)/Thor x-over): Taking the blame to protect Thor after the attack on the Frost Giants it is Sif who is exiled to Earth, landing in a place called Smallville on the farm of a certain blue-eyed farmboy.
Alien Exile(DC-verse): The governments of Earth, thanks to Lex Luthor, have decided that aliens on the planet, Superman and Supergirl included, are no longer welcome and exile them. What happens to Clark exiled from the only home he has ever known? What happens to Earth without its alien protectors? And is Lex as happy as he thought he would be with finally getting what he has always wanted; a world without Superman.
Kal-El of Asgard(Superman/Marvel x-over): Baby Superman's ship crashes on Asgard instead of Earth.
Spider-MenX: Inspired by the Spider-Men crossover event only 616 Spidey ends up in my SmallvilleX verse instead.
Star Light, Star Bright(DC-verse): Set in the New-52 in the early stages of Superman's career. Superman, strange being from another world, using his powers to help people yet feared and hunted. Superman who does not even know the name of the place he comes from apart from a few spoken words in barely remembered dreams. His fledgling career as a superhero is interrupted when a strange object falls out of the sky. Is it the answer to his questions or the bringer of something sinister to Earth?
So what now?(Marvel/DC x-over): The Marvel and DC worlds have been merged together leaving one overriding question; so what now?
Always room for one more(Smallville/Runaways x-over): When running away at the end of season 3 Clark falls in with an entire group of Runaways.
Spider-ville(Smallville/Ultimate Marvel x-over): Jessica Drew makes a deal with Nick Fury. She'll work for SHIELD, he sets her up a new life somewhere quiet far away from her 'brother' where she can figure out her life. Hmm, Smallville. Well nothing interesting probably ever happens here, right?
A 2nd Encounter of the Universes(A JLU x-over with my SmallvilleX verse): Thanks to a malfunctioning teleporting device built by Forge Clark and Claire end up in the universe her character was created for; the Justice League Unlimited.
Two Messiahs Walk into a Bar One Day(Smallville/X-Men x-over): Clark Kent, Kal-El, Superman, Last Son of Krypton, quasi-messianic saviour sent from a dying world to save his adopted one. Hope Summers, mutant messiah, saviour of the mutant race, suppose to bring about a new age of peace between humans and mutants. What if they met one day?
The Rise of Zod(AU Smallville): Clark was never found by the Kents and grew up alone on the streets of Metropolis meaning he knows nothing of his true heritage so when Nam-Ek and Aethyr arrive on Earth they are able to convince him to aid them in freeing Zod.
Redheads are out and Blondes are in(Smallville/X-Men x-over): Chloe Sullivan turns out to be the temporally misplaced future daughter of Scott Summers and Emma Frost.
C.G.A.B.M.W.S.T.M(Cute Guys Alison Blaire met while saving the Multiverse)(Multiple X-Overs): Just because Dazzler has to save the Multiverse from the 10 evil Xaviers doesn't mean she can't find time to 'window shop'. Taken from Ali's awesome adventures in Xtreme X-Men.
Avengers Plus One(Superman/Avengers movie): The obvious idea of slipping Superman into the movie, probably the him from the new 52 Action Comics when he's running around Metropolis in the jeans and t-shirt. Probably make him easier for Loki to manipulate if it's just after he was captured, experimented upon and tortured by Lex and the military.
The Fractured Future(Marvel): A series of one shots involving the female ruler of the 23rd century; Thundra(whom i've recently developed a small love for) and her attempts to reunite a world literally torn apart on gender lines.
Through the Looking Glass(JL): Desperate to find a date the Flash uses the inter-dimensional gateway technology to spy on his parallel selves for ideas giving everyone a glimpse of how their lives might have turned out and answering that eternal question 'What if?'.
Hero for Hire(Smallville/Multiple x-overs): In season 10 Kara is back and flying around being a hero. She does such a good job the Powers that Be decide this reality doesn't actually need a Superman and send Clark off on a journey to other universes to find a place that does need him. My little stab at the fact that Kara was doing a better job than Clark ever did and since she was seen out in public first really shouldn't she be the figure that inspires millions?
Phasing across Time and Space(Doctor Who/X-Men crossover): The Doctor rescues a certain girl trapped in a giant bullet.
No title yet(Superman/Smallville/Wolverine and the X-Men cartoon crossover): After the death of his parents at the hands of the MRD Clark either a) ends up at the newly rebuilt mansion, b) ends up with the Brotherhood or c) flees to Genosha. Alternatively Clark's parents died when the mansion was destroyed(because like my SmallvilleX story they were living there) and now as Wolverine tries to reform the X-Men he finds a rather cold, hard Clark Kent roaming the streets playing vigilante as he tries to avoid the MRD.
Superman...err boy: Superman gets turned back into a teenager. As he embraces his unexpected return to a teenage youth he comes to the conclusion he isn't as happy with where his life has ended up as he thought he was and decides to take this as a chance to start over.
The Many lives of Kal-El of Krypton: A series of one-shot crossovers showing what kind of person Kal-El would have been had different people found him when he crashed to earth.
World's Finest: Based off the little bit of World's Finest #1 I've seen. Karen, like Helena, considers it a nightmare trapped on the wrong Earth but when she starts to fall in love she faces the terrible dilemma of going home and losing them or staying and accepting never to see her home again.
Clark Kent; Member of the Injustice League: Clark's life goes down the wrong path and now he is one of the bad guys fighting the Justice League. Is he destined to now be the perennial bad guy forever or can he find redemption?
Super-Phoenix(Ok so the title sucks. I know): This would be set in a future of my SmallvilleX universe. Jean Grey is back from the dead(again) and finally in unity with the Phoenix but now that she is a literal living God she is finding it difficult to fit back into a world that has radically changed during her absence. Mutants are close to extinction, her friends look at her as if expecting her to turn back into the Dark Phoenix any second and worse of all Scott has moved on with Emma Frost. She ends up relying for support on another recent returnee from the great beyond in the form of Clark Kent(aka Superman) but as they spend time together the nature of their relationship begins to change...
The Replacement(JLU story): Supergirl is now living in the future. Wonder Woman has taken a sabbatical to deal with the revelation of her birth. The JL needs a new heavy hitter. Step forward Kara's clone Galatea...assuming she doesn't kill them all first.
Diamond Friend(Superman/Smallville/X-Men crossover): Jonathan dies when Clark is much younger leaving Martha alone with a failing farm and a teenage alien son so she turns to a friend from her former life for help. One Emma Grace Frost.
The Return of the Exiles(A DC/Marvel mash-up so I can pick my favourite characters from both): Clarice Ferguson aka Blink is recruited by the Phantom Stranger to lead a new team of Exiles to restore balance to the multiverse.
SmallvilleX: Days of Future Past. Was watching the movie. Got sorta inspired to either write some sort of version of the whole thing or perhaps just the ending when Logan wakes up and what sort of world does he wake up to find.
SmallvilleX: The College Years. Series of one-shots(probably) about Clark's college years.
SmallvilleX: Phantoms. Follows on from Year 3. During the fight with Zod several criminals escaped from the Phantom Zone and now Clark must find them before lives are lost but with no way to send them back he faces the terrible dilemma of contemplating having to do the one thing he vowed never to do; kill.
Superman/Avengers EMH crossover: Superman Returns...to the wrong universe. In this case the universe of the latest cartoon Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes. Loving that show at the moment. Or alternately a sort of crossover with my current SmallvilleX story. Clark grew up at the Xavier Institute like in my story and became Superman. 5 years ago he died at the hands of Doomsday but now the Enchantress and Loki have resurrected him to use him in their battle with the Avengers.
One-shot set in the future of my SmallvilleX universe. 100 years after he first arrived at the Xavier Institute Clark reflects on everything he has lost, gained and still has.
A somewhat dark story set in the future of my SmallvilleX universe partially inspired by Marvel's Civil War, Decimation, Nation X, Second Coming and everything in between story lines. Superman died at the hands of Doomsday. In the aftermath hero turns against hero in a Civil War meaning no-one notices Wanda losing her mind until with the 3 words 'No more mutants' she sends mutantkind spiralling towards extinction. With less than 200 mutants left living on Utopia the Human League makes preparations for their final assault while Wanda seeks to redeem herself and bring Clark back from beyond the grave but can even Superman save mutantkind from what is about to befall it.
I also publish stories on the Twisting the Hellmouth site under the name johnsmith.
