If You Haven't Been Here, Here's A Good Reason To Get There!  
 All of you out there that read this journal and follow our fic know that there are two amazing women we are blessed to call not only friends, but to our Visual Team, both official visual goddesses of the fandom: riznyand elliania.

Kat. Well, let's just say that every layout I've had (shy of the Edgar Allen Poe one) has been made by Kat. Every banner for every 12days_of_clois entry? Kat. Half of the icons in my userpics? Kat. And the Super-secret Project Nemo? You guessed it. She was the first graphic artist I met that was willing to tackle manips and she's done an utterly breath-taking job every single time, even with my nervous little nitpicks. Katness, you are amazing and I love you very much! *snuggles her Visual Assistant* If you haven't been to see her work, get there

And Rizny. Who saw Superman Returns and came out of it a fan. Who saw the Superman: The Movie and became a junkie. *LOL* I love this girl so much for how she came into this fandom. And for all the amazing manip work she does. And the fact that she's done so much work for Original Movieverse, and has helped to keep that part of the fandom alive as well, means so much to me. *hugs the Official Goddess of Original Movieverse Graphics*

Not that I'm knocking Brandon or the current 'verse; it's just so nice to see so much of the Reeve/Kidder films out there when there was next to nothing out there before the DC. Rizny, I owe you so much for making people love a film nearly thirty-years-old again. And you are seriously missing out if you haven't made your way here. Not to mention, rizny is also an author. Scope it out on her other journal here, where the original version of above pic can be seen.  

Girls, I love you! Thank you so much for making a writer's little visual dreams come true with every new piece you make, for the tears I get every time you post something new, and for giving me reasons to keep dreaming. And Kat? The visual from your Official Richana Icon will be coming up soon! XD

Both of these ladies do stunning and unbelievable work. They deserve all the props they can get. Your banners and icons are legends!:D Great work!

Oh, you should have seen my face the first time I saw that manip with Richard and Clark. The look on my face was pretty impressive.

This is kind of off topic of your post (though I'll get to that in a moment) but I found a blog about rare soundtracks - I've been on a quest to find a couple of rare soundtracks lately. Why am I telling you this? Well, I wanted you to be aware of these rare SI tracks (download on that link) if you aren't already! :)

Now - that manip with Ricard and Clark? LOVE THAT. I love the vintage feel of it and the fact that it's Reeve's Clark (nothing against Brandon from me either - just an appreciation for Christopher) and the coloring ... and just everything about it. It reminds me of a piece I did for a class, actually. (Though my peice had nothing whatsoever to do with any fandom - it just had a vintage feel about it - Vintage photography really speaks to me) AND ... AND ... I so would love to read a fic like that. Because I so want Clark and Richard to be friends in the long run and the idea of Richard being the one to take Clark flying just really intrigues me. I think they would totally bond over flying, ya know?

And now I feel inspired to make some icons and I haven't made many in ages because I've been so focuses on school projects ... :D :D :D

(Please excuse my complete lack of grammar and ability to be clear in this comment - I've had an exhausting day. LOL)

Awww, thanks, Lea! I actually don't have a couple of these, especially not the Pop version of Can You Read My Mind. I am probably one of three people that didn't mind her reciting the poem during the Flight Sequence, although that version as a song? *wince* Eeek. It just doesn't flow the right way. Thanks, love! *hugs*

And me, too, for the photograph. And the fact that rizny has up in her post that it was Lo that took the picture. It really doesn't have that beautiful 'aged' feel to it. In fact, this was the reason I asked her to make the pic of pregnant Lois vintage-look. She's just amazing. Really.

Thanks so much for your review! Feedback like this makes me all mushy inside :D

Vintage photography is awesome, but the real reason it looks like that is because it doesn't look like a photo without that - I mean that it just looks like some sort of graphic, not an actual photograph, without crumbling edges and a yellowy feel. Also I didn't have any polaroid textures then. *g*

I would be SO incredibly happy if someone wrote a fic like that. I would squee so loud, Lois and Anissa would hear it all the way on the other side of the USA! Richard and Clark are so similar, Richard is exactly like Clark without the superpowers, and omg they need to be best friends and bond over flying and just...yeah. I want to read a fic where Richard teaches Clark how to fly and there's all this ambiguity over whether he knows the secret or not, and the author decides how to surprise us one way or the other at the end, because identity porn (um, without the porn this time :D) is utterly awesome. *squishes it*

I've inspired someone! My work here is done. Oh, that makes me so happy. *bounces with glee*

It's only the truth, Kitty-Kat! And I love that you two and bisty are affiliated now! *happy-dance* Can you get anymore 'awesome' in one place? *Squees*

And it is amazing, isn't it? I ran across it in her other LJ one day and was like OMG!!!! You forget it's not real for a second...

Actually I've been trying to get houseofel to affiliate also, but she hasn't been online in quite a while. Kat, Bisty, and Locksley are my personal trio of Superman icon awesomeness.

*glomps* :D :D ♥

*dies at the mere thought of such combined amazingness*
januaried: SV lois smoochesjanuaried on January 2nd, 2008 08:08 pm (UTC)
OMG, I wasn't quite expecting this!! You're too good; Kat and I are very lucky people to have such friends! I'm speechless and trying not to cry - I'm not even a Superman author yet and here you are promoting me anyway. *huge glomp*

...And I can't stop giggling at your description of my entry into fandom, even though it's completely true. Also, the fact that you uploaded the manip to your LJ pictures is hilarious, even though I'm not quite sure why. xD

Lois: Lois Love Youkalalanekent on January 3rd, 2008 06:03 am (UTC)
Hey, when I do love, I do love! *LOL* And I love you to pieces, therefor....

And would it make you giggle harder to know that it's my background on the PC right now? *grins*

Actually it makes me squee ;) (see icon - yes, that's me!)

I was trying to find my RL icon in the photobucket and it's just not happening. I hope I don't have it on the other computer. *wince*
januaried: gen sunflowersjanuaried on January 4th, 2008 12:51 am (UTC)
Well, I was just looking for an excuse to use that icon, because I love the button font to death. ♥
