What A Great After-Birthday Present....  
So I'm home with a bug today. I don't know what it is, but I'm miserable. Fever, sick to my stomach, and all of that jazz. I'm hoping, though, that I'll get some more work done on 'Throwing Stones' since I'm in a very cute place at the moment. Leave it to the twins to help with a tense situation by asking innocent questions. *LOL*  And our Christmas story, which is set in a future of LS, production titled 'Christmas with the Kents  Lanes  Kents' is well on its way to finished.

And I want to thank you all for all the wonderful attention showered on me yesterday. You guys are so wonderful to me! *hugs and kisses all around*

Oh, and I've decided that it's safe to post this now, as most of you have guessed a certain red-headed angle in our story. Anissa wrote this up a while back and I think it's hysterical.

Lois…
Loves Richard, but she’s in love with Kal-El, and she knows precisely who that is (Clark AND Superman, y’all), but won’t let him know she still loves him. She knows who the father of her twins (yes we said twins) is as well, but she wouldn’t say that to him in either guise even if you stuck red-hot needles under her fingernails. She has noticed that Richard’s attracted to Lana, and vice versa, and that annoys her, but what really pisses her off is that she thinks Clark is still after Lana. As for Lana herself, she affects Lois like fingernails on a blackboard – this beautiful, fashionable, single woman who’s charmed all Lo’s men…

Richard…
Is in love with Lois, but their relationship is slowly fraying apart as secrets and revelations take their toll. He’s attracted to Lana – she seems like such a perfect mate, and to be honest, Lois comes with enough baggage to need her own U-Haul – but he’s tormented by his conscience. He’s suspicious of Lois and Superman and beginning to be suspicious of Lois and Clark – in spite of the fact that he really likes Clark as a friend and employee. He has no clue about any of the secrets, but he knows full well that the twins aren’t his, though he loves them as if they were. And he is beginning to develop a theory about their father…

Lana…
Is very much attracted to Richard, but throttling that feeling because she knows he’s engaged, and Scarlet Woman just isn’t her kind of role. She still has a soft spot for Clark, but one look told her that he’s completely infatuated with Lois and thus impossible to get. And she’s trying to be nice to Lois, which is very hard, because they’re pretty much polar opposites and Lois is trying hard not to hate her…

Clark…
Is fu**ed. Lois is the only one for him – he’s still fond of Lana, but that was a teenage crush and he’s in love with Lois. He even loves her kids. The bad part is, he likes Richard, too, and doesn’t want to screw up Richard’s happy life with Lois. What he perceives as their happy life together. So all he can do at this point is yearn. Or corner Lois and demand some answers … just not in a closet this time.


Still trying to decide if it's too early to spoiler Part One since it's not due until Christmas Day. Especially since it would only be a few lines. What do you think, B?

What was that written for? A character sketch for this act? I'd be interested to know.

I would wait until maybe a few days - a week before the official posting date to post a teaser for Christmas with the Kents.
Loiskalalanekent on December 12th, 2006 08:58 pm (UTC)
Yes, it was done to help us get all four characters into position before starting the third act. As you can see, we changed a few things in the minor details, but it's up to where we are now. Poor Clark. *LOL*

And okay, I figured as much, but wanted to run that by you first. Just so excited. May have to send you a reading version of what Part Two looks like at the moment. No beta just yet, only read. I think you'll like it so far. :)

*laughs at the outline*

That's classic. And I knew about the red-headed angle all along. *wink*

I know you didn't ask for my opinion, but being one of the few who have seen Part One, I agree with Barb and say wait. Two weeks before is a wonderful tease, but a week is even worse! Plus, it gives you time to think about what scene you're going to use.

Feeling sick, m'dear? *sanitized hugs* Get better soon!
Loiskalalanekent on December 12th, 2006 09:45 pm (UTC)
Yeah, an hour past my go-in time and still feel lousy. There's no way I could have cute and nice tonight, not with the way I'm feeling. At least the new chappie's getting more love than usual.

Isn't that great? I've wanted to put it up for a bit now. She wrote that up and showed it to me, had me laughing about it most of the night. And I really am (shockingly) looking forward to more Lana. Imagine that. I just like the way we're planning on taking her.

Okay, I'll keep my four line for now. Speaking of teases, did you check your e-mail? ;)

No, I can understand that. She's such a great girl and it is a shame that not only did he not see her because of Lana, but then he marries her cousin. And this to a character they made up specifically in the show. I really do love Chloe. I'll have to do something about her. She needs a little love somewhere in this tale.
Barbara: Did You Reallyhtbthomas on December 12th, 2006 11:48 pm (UTC)
Chloe in LS? Oh... can I vote no? I don't like to see Smallville crossovers in a fic that has been so true to the movieverse as yours has. Adding in comic references is one thing... but other than that?

Of course, you may prove me wrong, but just my two cents.

Totally off-topic here, but I noticed that you say in your ff.net profile that you'll soon be moving to "the Majestic Hills of Asheville, NC". Erm, you mean the Majestic BUMPS of Asheville, NC right? ;-) LOL, just kidding. I'm originally from Colorado, and I miss those mountains. All others are bumps to me. By the way, I live in boring Raleigh, NC. *waves*
Loiskalalanekent on December 13th, 2006 01:12 am (UTC)
*LOL* Yeah, the move is going to take a little longer than expected, but we plan to be there by next fall. The original plan was to be there by Halloween, but...RL never goes the way you plan.

And I like the bumps! :) Wow, I've heard Colorado is gorgeous. Love to get out there just for the Mountain and the Overlook hotel.

Hope to be up there in NC for a short trip in the next few months (will be taking my laptop because I don't want to keep these women waiting for a chappie).

*waves* Welcome aboard!

That would make his life easier, wouldn't it? Maybe some day... ;)

I love you! *huggles right back* Has your day gotten any better since earlier?
ellalou73 on December 13th, 2006 01:37 am (UTC)
Oh that was absolutely great, and put a big smiley on my face. All of it fits so well with the current plot line of your story and all so true. I am so ready to see what Clark does when he finds out that the twins are his children, and how he will react to what Lois has done, which is to hide it from him. Very nice indeed.

It'll be coming up the road soon, the reveal. We're getting closer and closer, but I'm not sure what you guys will think when it happens. Especially with the way it'll occur.

Aw, I'm sorry that you're sick, Lois. Hope you feel better in the morning!

As for the red-headed angle, WELL, lemme just tell you, I'm very excited for that! See, I think Richard deserves someone like Lana (at least the one you're writing (let's ignore the Chuck Austen and icky Smallville version), so this is a very happy development for me. Can't wait to see how it's all gonna play out! (Looking forward to that teaser, too!)
Loiskalalanekent on December 13th, 2006 05:49 am (UTC)
Well, it's almost 1:00 am and I'm starting to feel a bit better. Took all night, though. Yuck. I hate days like this, Michelle. Really. :(

Buuut, I"m serious about redeeming Lana. That Austin version just pissed me off royally. In doing research the other week, I ran across the 'Wrath of Gogg' trade and boy, did I have a meltdown. His Lana really is a piece of work! And then they had to play up the 'Lois is a b*tch' card to balance it out. *shudder*

And the SM Lana is just too whiney. I really love some aspects of her, but it always gets ruined by the fact that she's such a princess. I'd rather have the sweet Midwestern STM version any day. ;)

Just popping over to take a gander at your stuff. Am I not cool or something? Casue all I see on your outline is blacked-out lines...?

Am friending you so I can keep up with things! Great work on LS so far!

This is Anissa replying. You have to highlight the text (click and drag over it) to see it - keeps people who don't WANT to be spoilered from seeing it. We use the [spoiler][/spoiler] tags on BT all the time.
