Title: Bart Allen: The Making of a Hero
Pairings: Mostly just Bart, but there is Clark/Bart friendship, Bart and the League, & a hint of Chlart
Spoilers: Through “Justice”.
Disclaimer: I don’t own Smallville.
Summary: The story of Bart’s life before “Run”, and what happened between “Run” and “Justice”. Basically explains how Bart went from average kid to petty thief to superhero.
Warnings: Mild swear words, angst (but hopefully not too much)
Notes: Please comment with any thoughts you have about the story! I’d like to know. I hope I didn’t write Bart too sad or angry, but there were definitely hints of this in “Run” and I wanted to expand on the story, since the Smallville writers never bothered to. I love how fun and lighthearted Bart is, and it’s a valid part of his personality, but I figure with what he’s been through, there’s bound to be more to him than that. There are more notes at the end, but they’re not worth reading unless you’re nitpicky or really interested in details.
