Why Do I Keep Doing This To Myself On Saturday Morning?  
Okay, before anyone fusses when they see what time I posted this, I have not been to bed yet. We were at work tonight until very late and I was too wired to sleep. Which means it will be around 2pm when I wake up. Which stinks, because we'll be buying our live tree this afternoon and putting up our decorations while Lois is still zombified. *ACK!*

sean_montgomery, dearest, I'll post the other review on FF the minute things get quiet over here. Read it the minute I got home here on LJ and reviewed. So proud of you, love! So romantic. :D

And what did they do to the LJ? It's weird again! I'm just going to have to get a paid account so I don't have to deal with random weirdness. Or is that on a paid, too? *ACK, Part Deux*

Also, even if I am a little sleep-depp'ed and wonky this morning, I have a teaser. This one is sweet and not action-oriented, but it heralds the return of the twins as active characters! YAY! I don't know about you, but *I've* missed them.

Teaser for 'Throwing Stones':

It was amazing to her how her heart contracted at the mere thought of the twins, forcing her eyes to water just slightly.  They’re my miracles, something I never asked for or deserved, she thought just as Jason made the corner first and launched himself up toward her.


           Kala was not far behind, and Lois nearly fell as her daughter ran full-tilt into her legs and clung there.  Both twins seemed determined to squeeze the life out of her.  Jason’s arms in particular were very tight around her neck…  “Sweetheart, Mommy has to breathe,” Lois wheezed, and he immediately loosened his grip.  Their eyes met for a moment, Lois smiling a little while she raised an eyebrow as Jason nodded seriously.


         “How come you were bein’ mean to Superman on TV, Mommy?” Kala demanded.


          She resisted the urge to sigh.  Ah, the cliché lives. And always out of the mouths of these babes.  Lois set Jason on the ground before she answered.  “Baby, I had a bad day.  Some people at the office were saying nasty things about me…”


         “Didja kick their butts?” Jason asked hopefully.


         “Honey, fighting doesn’t solve things,” Lois said, treasuring the image of her stiletto heel buried in Polly’s vertical smile even as she said it.  She had learned that high-kick for the cabaret musical in high school…

“But Mommy, the cops fight crime all the time,” Kala said.  Her skeptical look mirrored her mother’s own perfectly.

“That’s different,” Lois said, trying not to grin.  “It’s a different kind of fighting, and that’s what the police have to do to keep us safe.  It wouldn’t be fair for me to just beat people up when they’re mean to me; nice people don’t do that.”

“So why were you mean to Superman?  ‘Cuz he wouldn’t beat you up for it?” Kala asked.  Those eyes seemed to be watching closely for her answer.  Close enough for Lois to wonder.


            Why, why do they both have to be so damn smart at this age?  Please, God, let Richard not be hearing this.
 
 
See you guys tonight. B (htbthomas), once Part Two is done, what day is best to send it as to not trip up your holiday schedule? And you're out of school this week, right? Without kids, we never know! This chappie should be to you no later than tomorrow night. :)

And coltdancer, can I make a request if you can get a screen cap of the 'Up, up, and away' Lois moment at the end of The Donner Cut? I'll love you forever! :D

Also, jaded_shade, tell me if you need anything else. I'm still adding more Kidder and Reeve to my pic folders.

Alright, going to pass out now! Love you all! See you tonight!

Oh, God, I can hardly wait for the rest of this. I'm sure it'll be worth the wait, as it always is...
Barbara: Read My Mindhtbthomas on December 16th, 2006 02:05 pm (UTC)
Every school is a little different. We have 2 more days next week. And then Tuesday evening I'll be out caroling. So I would say Wednesday is a safe day to send.

As far as LS is concerned, bring it on whenever it's done. I can certainly take a break in working on my own 12 Days fic to look at that. But I hope to be DONE with mine by then. *crosses fingers*

And I have 6 things to beta in between... And some of these people have been waiting for a week...

I can probably get you that screencap - the one above is one I got.

(Every school is a little different. We have 2 more days next week. And then Tuesday evening I'll be out caroling. So I would say Wednesday is a safe day to send.)

Will shoot for Wednesday then, especially since I have Monday off. I *will not* interfere with your holiday plans *at all* if I can help it.

(As far as LS is concerned, bring it on whenever it's done. I can certainly take a break in working on my own 12 Days fic to look at that. But I hope to be DONE with mine by then. *crosses fingers*)

B! *Blushes* No, you get that Christmas story done! I'm dying to see yours, since you haven't said word one about what you're up to! :P

(And I have 6 things to beta in between... And some of these people have been waiting for a week...)

I know, that's why I asked when it would be a good time. I don't want us skipping in line. We have until Christmas Day until we need to post the one, and the other should be to you very soon.

(I can probably get you that screencap - the one above is one I got.)

If you can get that (and any other good MK ones from the Donnor Cut), that would be great.

*Hugs all around* You treat us far too well, B. :D

I suppose it's late enough in the game to give away the summary of mine (mind you I'm still tweaking the summary and title - and I'm only about 1/4 finished, if that!):

Christmas Times Five: Clark tries to make up to his new family the five Christmases he missed with them.

It's set in the future of Déjà Vu, so Lois and Clark are already together, similar to what you have done with yours.

I'll email the cap I made right now. I would have to be given a specific scene to get any others, though.
Loiskalalanekent on December 16th, 2006 07:17 pm (UTC)
Oh, really? :) I can't wait to see this, then. And you know we can discuss it if you need inspiration, as always. Now I'm really excited. :)

I love you for the cap and will think about the others. Feel like playing with Photoshop this week. :D

Some of us don't mind giving up our place in line.
Loiskalalanekent on December 16th, 2006 08:36 pm (UTC)
You should, though! Everyone else's stories are just as valid as ours. You deserve just as much ofB's time as we do. :) You're such a gentleman, Brian!

I love those out-of-mouths-of-babes moments, though we must take care to sprinkle those judiciously. I loved the innocent questions, and Lois' scrambling to try to answer them. Her bad day isn't getting any better, is it?

BTW: I've got one of those moments in my... <shameless plug> latest posted chapter </shameless plug> .

I anxiously await the next brilliant chapter! I'm envious of htbthomas for the early peek she gets at the chapter.
Loiskalalanekent on December 16th, 2006 07:04 pm (UTC)
Well, she will later today, we hope. The scene we think of as the 'Apocalyptic Rock Fight', like the chapter in Stephen King's It, is just winding up and Clark is struck by a surprise revelation. Fun for all! *LOL* But every dau ends some time...

And yes, I love any time I can have a moment like that with the two of them. And with precocious little monsters like Kala and Jason, you have to stay on the ball. Which is actually becoming rather difficult for our Ms. Lane.

As soon as chores are done, I'll try to make my way over there. Thanks for being so understanding lately about me not reviewing, Brian. I'm trying to catch up reading before I post the reviews. See, I am reading! :D
Brian's FanFic Journal: Superman over the earthmr_beeto on December 16th, 2006 07:19 pm (UTC)
There are so many authors with great stories out there that I'm humbled and honored to ever be included in their company. I've fallen behind in reviews, too, and I need to post something for Alphie's 12days Fic...

So much to read (and write). So little time.
Loiskalalanekent on December 16th, 2006 07:33 pm (UTC)
We'll all get better after the holidays, I'm sure. I mean to hit everyone's fics during our short vacation the 28th-2nd.

We won't be posting that week, as we'll have put up our two-part Christmas for 12 Days, but we'll be plotting. We just need a break to rest and plot before the *HUGE* monster that is the rest of this Act. And I do mean 'monster'. *LOL*

I'm looking very forward to your next post and getting to see some action from Jason and Kala. I liked what you put here, out of the mouths of Babes. Lois had some explaining to do. I also liked the Image of Lois taking care of Polly, that would have been good.

I know the tired thing, I get home and should go straight to bed but I always need a fix on the Net and mostly on LJ.

Have a good rest.

Ella
Loiskalalanekent on December 16th, 2006 08:44 pm (UTC)
Oh, there's so much more coming up from these two. Like I said a few posts back, they have a big role in this Act. And I'm loving every minute of it.
ellalou73 on December 16th, 2006 08:45 pm (UTC)
Can't wait to see what you have in store for us...

*big, squishy hugs* Thanks for all your 'wake up, you dork!' moments leading up to my posting. I swear, my mouth hasn't seen a tums since that night! : D I'll be anticipating your review...

And a teaser! Whoo hoo!
