The number of chapters for Heirs has yet to be planned, as the story is on-going. Nope, I absolutely do not intend to make it to eighty-odd chapters. *hears the random laughter* Oh, all of you hush! I mean it! :P *LOL*

Without the brilliant help of saavikam77  , we could never have delivered, but we have an easy-to-read index for every single chapter of Heirs to the House of El. In order. From beginning to end :) 

Everyone happy now? ;)

So did you just randomly pick for the index to have 82 chapters or is Heirs so well planned out that your confident of the number of chapters already.

We just gacked the table for LS because that was the set-up we had. OMG, no! We have a good portion of Heirs plotted, but not that far ahead. We just left the number count up in case we need it. We'll be updating it as we go along.

Isn't it, though? She and I have been playing with a bunch of ideas for The Overhaul and this was just one of them. I'm adoring all of the stuff we've come up with and can't wait to see the final products.

*LOL* Nope, I absolutely do not intend to make it to eighty-odd chapters..

^ That's in the note above the index. I just reused the index setup for LS. I'm thinking it's going to be around forty, but this was just to be safe.

Awww! You're very sweet. The good news is that you're getting in just a few chapters before the end, so you won't have to wait nearly as long as most for the ending. It's only about two or three months from being finished. ;)
januaried: fandom: Superman [Clois]januaried on August 6th, 2012 06:24 pm (UTC)

Okay, sticking my review here because it's for the whole thing. <3

So yeah, I stayed up until 3 AM a couple times reading the can't-stop-the-action parts and I'm reminded all over again just how amazing this fic really is. If Barb isn't using the Cliffie Queen title in Superman fandom anymore, you two totally deserve to take it over, lol.

You guys are like masters of psychology, or at least of making everybody's motivations and reasons clear and understandable and realistic. We get into everyone's heads and see why they do what they do, and it makes perfect sense. Especially with Lois and Clark's troubles and recovery; that theme was an excellently done journey through the things that real people have to deal with in a marriage. Not to mention tying all the various threads together - the Daily Planet takeover, the kidnapping, the kids' relationships, the adults' relationships, Zod, Luthor, pets, aging and death, love, growing up, recovery from injury, humor, loss, learning from mistakes and character flaws, sex, etc. It's just like real life - everything hits you all at once sometimes (as we know all too well) and causes tremendous stress, and it's inspiring to see how well the characters deal with it.

It occurred to me, and I love this, that the focus really is on strong women. It's not something you expect in Superman, but it works fantastically enough that I really wish this could be an actual, published by DC, series. But it's so amazing because it's a given that Superman is strong, both physically and mentally. The question is, how do you make him interesting when he's nearly unbeatable? And of course we both know the answer is, make him realistic psychologically and give him problems that affect him emotionally, not physically. You've done that exactly right, with the focus on family and all its humor and angst and love. But I keep coming back to the fact that this is all about the strong women. They're BAMFs and HBICs, and they know it, and it doesn't lessen the strong men at all. And in a Superman story, as we know typically ruled by fanboys with macho-man fantasies, that's a really, really valuable thing to find.

Let's see, what else was I going to go on about. I still wish there was more Jimmy, but you can't have absolutely everything or it would be so perfect my head would explode! XD And I totally appreciate his having grown up too, being the Head of Photography, being mature enough to speechify to summon the employees to unite in buying stock, etc.

It also occurred to me that it would be really funny to read a version with all of Lois's swearing and muttering written out explicitly. XD

I had almost forgotten that you had written me in here, too. XD <3 That was really fun to read! And you've got to tell me who Kay's actress is so I can know what my fictional girlfriend looks like. >:D

I reread Sessions too, and it was a perfect complement to the end of Heirs. I found myself wishing Elliot would find out the secret, because reveals are like porn for me, but I knew it wasn't going to happen - but I had forgotten what really did happen. And just about died laughing at one in the morning last night. *snorfle*

This is probably getting too long for an LJ comment, so in conclusion, this is pretty much the best answer ever to Superman Returns and most definitely good enough to be published. It certainly took as long as a regular novel to read! XD Anyway, you two are utterly epic writers and this fic is near damn perfect in every way achievable. *tackleglomp* <3
Lois: Clois :: Cute Cuddlekalalanekent on August 7th, 2012 06:35 pm (UTC)
What more can I say, bb, other than you completely floored by this review and it means so damn much that you loved it. I don't know that I'll ever have the words to say everything I want to reply back to this. You are amazing and I'll love you forever. *wibbles*

Chapter nine pt two made me think of a torch scene when Chloe said "Aw, it's hard being Smallville's only Goth"
Lois: LS-Verse :: Kala :: Halloweenkalalanekent on November 25th, 2012 03:31 pm (UTC)
It's true and thankfully Kala's only in Smallville a few months out of the year. It's hard enough being 'Kent's Eastern gal''s daughter. XD
