Houston, We Have Kryp-Tin!  
Just a short little post to say that even though I am now officially Ms. Kidder's casting age in STM (not going to say it, not even going to think it. It was far from old for her, but I'm a different story!), I am now the proud owner of the vaulted metal Treasure Trove of Superman Goodness! Despite owning SR and the Donner Cut (both of which I now have two copies of! *happy dance*), the prophecy is now complete. Let the rollercoaster that is LS kick into high gear, because now I have all copies of the films as well as shooting scripts! YES!!!!!

Nope, not obsessive. Not at all! ;)

*SQUEE! And I rarely ever SQUEE!*

And thanks so much to everyone for spoiling me lately, most obviously for reviewing as often as you do when I'm just lousy at keeping up with all of your own stories. I do intend to continue trying to catch up. Really. Promise. Honestly. (I *am* being serious) 

To: 

beeto_from_ff , for selflessly asking B to beta for us first before him and for being as much a Salkind-Hater as myself. As I said before, seperated-at-birth twins. You are such a love, Brian, and a gentlemen to boot. Our very own Clark Kent. We adore you for it. 

sean_montgomery for the never-ending amusement and insight that is her company. And the fact that she's trying like crazy to catch up to LS before TPM occurs with her grin-a-minute reviews. (nope, still telling you guys what that is until we get there next month! *LOL)

ellalou73 for taking the time to look for pictures that I don't have on my database for banners and such and her sweet words about a beginner's banner making talents. Will have to let you babysit the twins from time to time. :) 
jadedshade for her offer of making utterly breath-taking banners inspired by our little piece of fiction, as well as being a longtime reviewer.

mithah, our most extraordinary should-be Brit who loves us so much, she quotes our quotes as half her review! You have no idea the joy that they give us and how we wait for them with baited breath, Hellish. And for the reaction to your sneak preview. *LOL* Still need a fan and a glass of water? ;) We love you, 'Chelle!

 bistyboo1974 for affection, support, and for staying sane for all of us in a difficult time. Not to mention honoring us with a spot in 12 Days. There really are no words for how awed we were. We love you, Caroline! *Big hug* 

I also need to once again send love out to a certain someone...*coughcoltdancercough* for that amazingly beautiful icon I refuse to stop using for everything.

As well, I need to thank maaike_fluffyfor her post-ins and for her wonderful story that I need to get off my butt and review. (As well as bisty and Brian's. I know, I know. I suck SO bad that I'm amazed that anyone speaks to me at all. *blush*)

And B (htbthomas), most likely my best friend on the 'net and the most wonderful, encouraging beta/fan/all-around beautiful human being I know. There really are no words for how much I owe you and thank you. It all started with the simple reading of a fantasic fanfiction by an amazing writer. I say it all the time, but you were the reason that I had the courage to take Little Secrets as far as I have. YOU, WOMAN! :) And I'm so glad you did. A meet-up can't be soon enough! Hug Ashlyn for me and the twins, too. Kala says she misses her. ;)

And to all the others out there that I may have missed, the readers from FF and BT over here slummin' for spoilers ;), thank you for making this story as popluar as it has become. It wouldn't be that way if not for all of you. We only hope that we can continue to be up to expectations and that you'll tell us if we're not. 

This has been one of the best years of my life thanks to a man in a crimson cape from a world far beyond ours whom I love with all my heart and the woman who loves him in spite of sense and reasoning. And because of my family here. You make me smile, laugh, cry, think, question with every post you make. You've made me feel like part of a family that I never knew I was missing. I love you all and let's have another great one!

Besides, it's still another year and a half 'til Man of Steel! *ducks the flying tomatoes, laughing* 

EDIT: Another bit of proof that I'm spoiled rotten just came as an utter surprise at 4:17am with no warning. Especially since said artist was *busy* until after Christmas. *LOL*  SOPHIE, I LOVE YOU!!!

There Are Just No Words...

Yeah, definitely. Especially with the ending scene there in SR. That's why I'm so looking forward to our Clark with his babies. That is going to be one man totally in awe.

*gets more gooey thinking about that than she did with the heat*

Remember, in the end of SR, when he's flying in the sky? There's the smile on his face, he puts his hands in front of him... then you can just SEE his open-mouthed smile when he pulls them back, zips through the air, and twirls through the atmosphere into space. He's so ecstatic! There really isn't a word for it! I'm really looking forward to his interaction with Jason and Kala, especially considering it's going to be different from what we've seen so far!

To drop a spoiler, imagine that during the darkest hour of LS, after they've been in danger, Kala calls him 'Daddy' for the first time.
sean_montgomery: Clark - homesean_montgomery on December 13th, 2006 01:43 am (UTC)
*feels her heart race*

And does he know about the twins? Or is that the big reveal?
Loiskalalanekent on December 13th, 2006 01:50 am (UTC)
No, it's not the big reveal. He's been told before this, but not by much. That happens earlier, but he doesn't know that the twins know. And Lois isn't with them when this happens.
sean_montgomery: Me-amusedsean_montgomery on December 13th, 2006 02:06 am (UTC)

*feels overwhelmed*

What a wonderful little epic you've got going here. I simply cannot wait to see what you've got in store!
Loiskalalanekent on December 13th, 2006 02:16 am (UTC)
I'll probably do a lot of crying writing up some of it. But the good stuff like TPM and the 'Daddy' scene makes it worth it.

And I agree with the 'emotional undercurrent' you mentioned. *That* is the agony of it and why I used the flashback. So you know just how things were and why it killed them when it was lost.

Hee... just so you know, reading that REALLY helped inspire me for the last chapter in Underground. Thanks for that! : D
Loiskalalanekent on December 13th, 2006 02:29 am (UTC)
More than welcome and any time. I always saw what the two of the felt as being that way. Remember the 'Up, up, and away' from the Donner Cut? It shows painfully right there.
sean_montgomery: Clark - homesean_montgomery on December 13th, 2006 02:35 am (UTC)

Her with all those tear-staines streaking down her face, and the emotional one-two she's got in her voice staring at his form while he flies into the sky... how she can BARELY get the line out... GUH!!

More than welcome and any time.

*snort* I might come to visit you sometime soon, then - you can give me more insight so I can write this chapter effectively. *feels like she's speaking in code so she won't spoil anything for anyone*

(psst - are you done with my fic YET?) ; )
Loiskalalanekent on December 13th, 2006 02:42 am (UTC)
They say that Margot didn't want any help with the scene, that she did it naturally. Real tears and all. Breaks your heart. That and the looks on their faces during that last hug. *whimper*

As to code, you too? *LOL* I feel like I've been doing it for months now. And feel free to visit. Too bad I work all day. :(

And I'm commenting my butt off four pages in. :P

Oh, wow. I hadn't heard that! Really shows you how underappreciated she was as an actress, especially since the Donner Cut was the version never seen.

And feel free to visit. Too bad I work all day.

How about thursday? That's my day off. Working all day then?

Only four pages in? Geez, if it's taken you this long, I'd better shut up - you've got another four to go! : D
Loiskalalanekent on December 13th, 2006 03:04 am (UTC)
DONE! Is on it's way to you now. Love it. To Pieces.

And yes, she definitely is. Some of the performances she gave in art house films blow you away. Truly. It's a crime that she never really wanted to be famous. The money was good, but fame wasn't for her at all. She's said as much a million times. Would have rather been a rich hermit.

Nope, not off again until Saturday and that's our busy day. If not for being sick, I wouldn't have been here tonight. :(
sean_montgomery: Clark - work modesean_montgomery on December 13th, 2006 03:16 am (UTC)
DONE! Is on it's way to you now.

Yay! Will check it out!

Only Saturday? Hmm... I have a 6-2 then. It's going to be busy all this weekend and next week.. *is suddenly dreading Christmas*
Loiskalalanekent on December 13th, 2006 03:20 am (UTC)
Same here. We had two employees quit the other night with no warning, so that's why I felt bad about calling out today.

I suddenly feel bad for us going last. Then again, we still have to finish the second part. God, so much to do.
