ATU :: Earth Clois

PROGRESS UPDATE

This is the Voice of DOOM.  I have kidnapped Lois for our day out - I worked 5 hrs this morning during a time when I am normally blissfully asleep, and I need my woman to make this day bearable.  We'll be at Panera and the library, so the chapter will get posted when we get home.

As usual, many thanks to our beloved betas for getting TWO fics done on such short notice.  Ya know, we totally abuse our betas - we send out 6000 to 9000 word chapters and expect 24 hr turnaround, we have huge amounts of exposition and detail that has to be maintained for continuity, and we write oneshots alongside our massive epic.  That's why we've added glitter_my_glam  to the team; saavikam77  is a fantastic beta, but we don't want her to burn out under our gigantic primadonna demands.  :D  Ladies, we know we're a pain in the ass.  We love you.

If you like our work, please know that it wouldn't be the same without the efforts of our beta team - and that includes past betas htbthomas , sean_montgomery , and the amazing grammar goddess trekkie6 .  Everyone who has read our stories ought to send mental hugs to those folks.  They rock.

And if you like our graphics, we bow before the brilliance that is januaried and elliania .  Many of the new icons you'll be seeing shortly are from januaried , who gets into a chatroom with us and then gets sweet-talked into making manips.  We love you, sweetheart.

Heirs to the House of El: Secrets And Lies I (Chapter Twenty-Three)

 Yet another chapter that I'm not really sure I can give an intro for. This is another one of those sections of the story that we've been planning since we were still writing Little Secrets. Yes, for that long. Hopefully we've been keeping you guessing so far and will continue to do so. That said, welcome to the new arc: Act III: Truth. And be ready as we shift it into high gear. Expect the unexpected. :D

Just A Cute Little Banner For Poor Jason

Due to the extreme amount of BS our poor Jason Garen goes through this chapter, I felt the need to make something to illustrate just how my boy feels at the moment.

And I totally need to get januaried or someone else to make me that 'Poor Jason' icon. XD Seriously, the kid deserves one.

Look for a banner update for the layout later tonight or tomorrow. I don't want to give too much away too soon. *evil laugh*

ETA: Annnnnd, the final decision has been made on the visual for the beautious Mr. Sebastian Velez. :D Meet Jon Kortajarena. glitter_my_glam , you got it perfect. This is the closest I've ever seen to what I wanted. I looooff you! Expect icons soonish.
