Update from the Voice of Doom  
Mwuhahahahaha!  Lois is fast asleep, and I have once again hijacked her LJ.  This time, it's to update you on our chp 54 progress.  So far, we're at 8 pages and 4,407 words.  Yay!

Unfortunately, this means I have to post the teaser.  Excuse me while I bite my nails in terror...  There's some great lines in this one, but I don't want to spoil you too much...  Couple places that made me teary-eyed to write, too...  

All right, here you go.  

Superman looked at Lois, and she nodded. “Yes, we can go for a flight,” he said to the twins, who squealed with delight. “We can’t stay out too late, though.”
“Jason, come here, your coat’s inside-out,” Lois said, helping him put it on right. She kissed both twins before stepping back to let their father pick them up, her throat tight.  “We’ll be here when you get back.”  This was the scene she had always dreaded, watching the love of her life soar heavenward with her children, Jason and Kala waving to their earthbound mom.
Now, though, she was surprised to feel wistful instead of wounded. After all, could Jason and Kala possibly be any safer than they were with him? Kal-El and the twins flying together was also a hint of something Lois had never allowed herself to yearn for: the family she never thought she wanted, whole and perfect.
Those half-hopeful thoughts were interrupted by Richard quietly clearing his throat behind her. “Lois?” he said softly. “I think we’d better talk.”



Ta-daa!  Hope you liked that.  I'm off to get some sleep now.

Aww, how awesome for the twins! Then, oh, boy, the talk with Richard! Love those rollercoasters! *grins* Thanks.

I'm loving this, the twins with their daddy. You'll have to tell Lois that I rented Silent Hill and got to see the little girl you have playing your Kala, she's very cute, and that movie was sad, very very odd but good.

Anway this is about the post. I can't wait to read it the only drag is that I'm going to work at 10am and I won't be back home until 5am Sunday morning. I'm doing OT...I've lost my marbles, but I'll be ready to read it when the life comes back to me after sleep on Sunday..

Hugs to both

{Jason, come here, your coat’s inside-out} I just love that little detail.

“We’ll be here when you get back.”} We? Richard's there?

{Kal-El and the twins flying together} That's a pretty picture in my head.

{“Lois?” he said softly. “I think we’d better talk.”} Now that really *is* the understatement of the year.


Eagerly awaiting the new chapter, as you can see. Usually I wait for it to be up at FF.net but I needed a little fix to tide me over...
