Squeeing: I wonder if there's ever going to be a movement within fandom for "retro fic." This fic has a relatively recent archive date, but feels like it was written in the nineties. I don't know how to explain it, but the tropes all belong to that time period in fandom. Cue my nostalgia phase. This rec isn't just for the story, but rather for the way it reads like a throwback to fandom days of yore.
Excerpt: “You’re not from around here,” she said as she looked over their strange clothing.
“No, we’re not,” Clark agreed. “We’re just…lost. Very, very lost.”
