I worship at the television altar
I'm back, and I brought Tom with me!
Hi, guys! Remember me? :) After six straight days of working more than ten hours, all I want to do is immerse myself in the pretty! So I've put together a little Tom Welling picspam for my pleasure, and (I hope) yours as well. The theme this time is Shirtless!Clark, and I've included screen caps from every episode of Smallville I can remember where Tom shows us that gorgeous chest of his. If I've forgotten any, please let me know! There are multiple caps from some episodes, just to make the pic count an even 50. Enjoy!

Okay, he's not shirtless in this one, but he might as well be, right? :)

And one bonus non-Smallville cap, just because he's so beautiful. Guh!

BTW, I didn't include any caps that we don't know for sure are Tom. I'm a purist, so no body doubles here! :)

Screen caps courtesy of acampbell, Devoted Fans Network, Home of the Nutty, KEakaCK, oxoniensis, Screencap Paradise, and SVFan, with my thanks.

Wow, this is comprehensive! There used be a lot more shirtless!Tom back in the earlier seasons, no? Oh, Smallville. What a thing to compromise on. Tsk tsk.

Thank you for putting this together! I think all of us need some pretty to get through the hiatus!

Ok, I'm done.

I'm glad you enjoyed it! Shirtless!Tom is definitely a rarity on Smallville these days. Here's an episode count by season:

S1 - 4
S2 - 5
S3 - 9
S4 - 6
S5 - 4
S6 - 1 (!!!)
S7 - 3

I will say that the most recent one, in Quest, was one of the best. Tom is looking good!

Ooohhh... *thud*

Do you have your own personal favourite? Mine is definitely the Crusade shot. :p
tariel22 From: tariel22 Date: June 1st, 2008 08:29 am (UTC) (Link)
Ooh, I don't think I could pick just one. Maybe that close-up from Hypnotic? I love the look on his face in that one, plus his hair looks great. My short list of favorites would include Exile, Phoenix, Commencement, Hypnotic, and Quest, I guess. I think he's beyond gorgeous in just about every episode, though. And my true favorite of the whole batch is the pic from The Fog. *facepalm* I just love scruffy Tom! :)

Oh my lord! That was an absolute feast for my eyes! I mean it's not like I haven't looked at these caps thousands of times but to have them all in one place....visual sensory overload me thinks! Thanks!
tariel22 From: tariel22 Date: June 1st, 2008 09:43 am (UTC) (Link)
I'm glad you enjoyed it! I had fun trying to remember all the episodes, and tracking down all the caps. I feel like I could pick Tom's chest out of a line up now. LOL!

That's a wonderfully appropriate icon, I must say! :)

Wow ... now this was a sheer genius post! I love it!

I miss the days when Clark used to go shirtless. Tom was looking really good in "Quest" but I was too busy looking away from the carving. I have no tolerance. :\

Crusade was definitely a winner though! ;)

Thanks for making this great post! It made my night!
tariel22 From: tariel22 Date: June 1st, 2008 09:54 am (UTC) (Link)
I'm so happy you liked it!

Yeah, that scene in Quest really upset me. When I went looking for caps, I clicked through them very slowly, so I wouldn't go too far and accidentally see the gruesome ones!

Tom looked particularly amazing in both the S3 and the S4 premieres, didn't he? *stares at your impossibly sexy icon*

He inspires that response in me as well! :) *hands you a towel*

What a wonderful post! I'm a big fan of shirtless Clark.
tariel22 From: tariel22 Date: June 1st, 2008 04:43 pm (UTC) (Link)
I'm glad you liked it! I just wish his shirt came off a little more often these days. Oh for the carefree, shirtless days of S3/S4! :)

*is dead* Welcome back! *hugs*

Hi! *waves frantically* This time of year just kills me at work! I have today off, and then it's another week of hell. Sorry I haven't been around!
dm_wyatt From: dm_wyatt Date: June 1st, 2008 04:21 pm (UTC) (Link)

He certainly does have one of the finest chests I think I've ever seen.... they should let him show it off more.

tariel22 From: tariel22 Date: June 1st, 2008 04:48 pm (UTC) (Link)
I agree! Clark didn't voluntarily take his shirt off once in S7. Twice it was Bizarro, and the other time they had to tie him up and cut it off of him. :) And the only time in S6 was when he was mind-whammied on Red!K. Clark is entirely too modest, IMO. ;)
jeannev From: jeannev Date: June 1st, 2008 05:18 pm (UTC) (Link)
How did you know this is just what I needed today? No matter, thank you, thank you, thank you!!!

Is it terribly sick and wrong to say that I think his nipples are incredibly sexy? Its not really a kink I had before, but something about his....

Yeah, thats disturbing.

This is a wonderful picspam. I am hugging you muchly!
tariel22 From: tariel22 Date: June 1st, 2008 09:08 pm (UTC) (Link)
I'm glad it was good for you! :)

Every inch of the man is incredibly sexy, and you can't put together a picspam like this one without noticing his nipples. *blushes* They're perfect, just like the rest of him.

After this I'm lusting even more for your vision of Tom on the big screen: drinking, smoking, swearing, fucking, behaving badly, and sexing up the joint in every way possible! *thud*

See what Shirtless!Tom does to me? I've completely lost my ladylike decorum!

Very nice!! Thanks so much!

I'm glad you liked it! Thanks for stopping by!

I want a TW of my own. That is all.

Thank you for the picscam, though!
tariel22 From: tariel22 Date: June 1st, 2008 09:56 pm (UTC) (Link)
Pics are a poor substitute for the real thing, I know. I do appreciate that Tom continues to show up in public lately, so at least some of the pics we have are new!

Whatever craziness the show cooked up for us this season, it was always nice to see Tom in a new episode on my television screen. I think it's gonna be a long summer. :)
ophelia_77 From: ophelia_77 Date: June 1st, 2008 07:25 pm (UTC) (Link)
Are you trying to kill me?! Seriously, I could look at him all day. My particular favorites: Red biker shorts (heehee!), the shots from Exile, Las Vegas hotel room and tortured Clark.

Glad you posted. Hope work is going better. :)
tariel22 From: tariel22 Date: June 1st, 2008 09:48 pm (UTC) (Link)
At least we still get the occasional shirtless scene on Smallville. Those boys over on Supernatural never take their shirts off!

Work is insane, but the budget is due on the 10th, so there is light at the end of the tunnel. Then I have 20 days to catch up on my regular work before the year-end close starts on the 30th. This was so much easier last year, when I didn't have a life! :)

I hope your work is going better, too. And I heard a rumor you spared the life of that spider that bit you! Your ability to forgive astounds me! LOL!
whimsywinx From: whimsywinx Date: June 1st, 2008 08:18 pm (UTC) (Link)
Dear Supernatural,

Please follow Smallville's example and get your leads to take their shirts off once and awhile.

Thank you for your consideration,

Dear Tariel,

What about Lex without his shirt? Pretty please?

Thuddingly yours,
tariel22 From: tariel22 Date: June 1st, 2008 10:25 pm (UTC) (Link)
I heard the boys had a no-shirtless-scenes clause put in their contracts starting with S3. :( And we didn't get any this season, did we? Dean in the wifebeater is the closest thing I remember.

Ooh, Shirtless!Lex sounds like a great idea! *plots* I don't know if I can recall every episode as well as I can for Clark, but I'll bet I can put something very pretty together! MR always looks gorgeous in his shirtless scenes, too!
jaimsie From: jaimsie Date: June 1st, 2008 08:34 pm (UTC) (Link)
You are insanely overworked. Welcome back to this side of crazy!

Also, that poor kid is caught in his fair share of compromising positions.
tariel22 From: tariel22 Date: June 1st, 2008 10:15 pm (UTC) (Link)
Thanks! This time of year is always a bitch, but I've sort of eased off the whole workaholic thing lately, and I'm just not very good at these long hours anymore.

LOL! I never thought about it much, but you're right! Clark has an altogether crazy life. And he almost never takes his shirt off voluntarily. There's always some extenuating circumstance. The stories don't always make a lot of sense, but the pretty goes a long way toward helping me forget any problems I have with the plot. :)

I'm hyperventilating. Thanks for bringing Tom back with you! ;-)
tariel22 From: tariel22 Date: June 2nd, 2008 03:55 am (UTC) (Link)
You're welcome! I do pretty much take him everywhere I go. :)
