Stolen from maaike_fluffy, bistyboo1974, sean_montgomery, alamo_girl80, htbthomas... Hell, almost my whole f-list. Still working on PwF as we speak. Will be in B's mailbox when she wakes up in the morning.

Also saw 'Crimson' finally! Other than the Lousy, Stupid, God-Could-We-Please-End-This-NonCanon-Idiosy-That Is-Clana-PLEASE!!!!, the episode was great. VERY tired of co-dependant-on-Lana-crack Clark. I'm with Lois. What does she have, other than the astonishing ability to alternately bitch and cry? She's a pretty crier, I'll give her that. And she does scared and frightened well. Poor Kristin Kreuk. So pretty, but with absolutely a train-wreck of a character to play. *disgusted sigh* This is why I stayed out of Smallville for so long. I can only handle their Lana...or any Lana...for so long. Eventually youwant to just going all Saving Jane's Girl Next Door On Her and holler, "Everybody loves her, but I just wanna hit her!"

So what's with the ending? Is she going to play Lana-the-Krypton-Slayer again? *another eyeroll* God, Caroline, pass me the bucket on that note, please? All of these notes, really. Been there, done that, MOVE ON!!!

But, on a sweeter note, I think we've finally found a good use for Bad!Kal. See, Red K isn't always bad. I mean he did point out so truths at the party and he is *very* well-behaved (comparatively) with Lois. And the whole DP section and the stuff at Ollie's was great. Love the 'acting like a girl' comment from Jimmy, too. This was such fun. XD

*(sings) you wish you never ever met her at all...* Well, my take on Lana isn't quite that extreme - it is canon for Clark to have had a teenage crush on her. Time to move on though.

I've been swamped and distracted, so I'm a bit behind in my posts so far. Still managed to stay on the fitness bandwagon somehow, losing 9 pounds of fat and gaining 3½ pounds of muscle since the first of the year. Not so well on the story, though. I've been seriously distracted my a very appealing AU take on SR, instead of focusing on reorganizing the chapter outline for HIWTHI so I can actually finish the chapter (and the story) in this lifetime.

I know you're going to ask (The rest of the text is grey, though I don't know how well that will hide the potential spoilers). The idea is for an actual valid reason for Supes to go back to Krypton. Astronomers found Krypton? Come on! In canon, it's in another galazy! That's, what? 6½ billion light years away? We can barely detect planets a few dozen light years away, and even then, only gas giants, and only by measuring the gravitational wobble as the large mass orbits, as measured by the red shift in the mass spectrometer. The idea is that Lex still tries to pull off that hoax, and Supes quickly realizes that it IS a hoax. However, when he gets an incoming distress call at the Fortress from 13-year old Kara Zor-El, whose ship was disabled in the shockwave from the supernova of Krypton's sun, there's only one thing he can do... The issue of him leaving without saying good-bye is still there, which has potential. Though, I actually have a post-SR scenario in my head of Lois taking in Kara as a foster child (without first consulting Richard). Later, when Kara and Jason are both forced into action to protect the family, Richard assumes that she's Kal-El's daughter. (An assuption that Lois declines to correct). That's been playing in my mind in a continuous loop, and blocking my progress on HIWTHI. Obviously, this is NOT the HIWTHI universe.

In the reveal, Lois and Richard are in Perry's office with Jimmy Olsen, Kara and Jason (and Kara's new best friend, Julie), while Perry rants about an urban legend called 'Supergirl' (she's never been caught on camera). It's late, the bullpen's practically empty, when a suspicious package get delivered to Lois, with a bomb inside, packed with Kryptonite. Richard ignores Kara's concerns and opens it. She pulls it out his hands milliseconds before it explodes. She shields the others from the blast, but is peppered with Kryptonite shrapnel. She turns towards the others, her civilian clothes incinerated, the shrapnel damage clear for all to see. Her eyes roll back, she collapses and falls out the window. Jason dives out the window after her, only to reappear floating through the window a moment later, dragging the unconscious Supergirl behind him like he would a teddy bear, before he too collapses. Lois immediately pulls out her cell phone and issues the voice command 'Call Superman'. He quickly shows up in a lead-lined suit and a Kryptonite Emergency Kit to tend to her wounds. She quickly recovers.

It's the argument that follows that I've been having a lot of fun with, without yet writing a word of it, and to the detriment of HIWTHI.

WOW! Now I understand the distraction! That's one heck of a story you have following you around, Brian! I can't wait to lay eyes on this. I'm all ears! :D

I've wanted to do something about Kara for a while now, but there just isn't room or sense in putting her in LS. Might look into it for 'Heirs', though. She'd be an interesting addition to the setup, as well as in keeping with the movieverse, but still...

Then again, your atek on her will be out long before ours. No 'Heirs', other than for V-Day, until LS is over...

Oh, and I LOVE this particular plot bunny. If only it would go away long enough for me to finish HIWTHI. There's only a couple more chapters to go...
Loiskalalanekent on February 3rd, 2007 02:33 am (UTC)
You *and* B are almost done? OMG. Just promise that you'll give in afterwards to the plot bunny and stay with us here in the SR community. I'm so nervous about B being sucked back into the Aracnid-verse...

I've got another AU Kara Zor-El plot bunny where she's a toddler instead of a teen. Clark's been buying LOTS of pull-ups. In this storyline, Clark will introduce her to his DP friends as his daughter, and claim her mother was lost in a tsunami in Thailand. In this AU, her daycare is right next to Jason's school. Lois offers to pick her up for Clark the day of the Pulitzer's. She with Lois when she boards the Gertrude. Jason still tosses the piano, but Kara reduces the locked pantry door to a crumbled mess.

How awkward to you think her next conversation with Clark is going to be?

*repeats Jimmy's reply* Very.

I may just have to get me a Kara Zor-El icon...

I find myself chuckling just thinking about that conversation. Though, the teenage Kara storyline comes first.

Oh, and I'm on rewrite #4 of HIWTHI chapter 58. 1,418 words so far. I think that this scene is a keeper. Just hope I can get the rest of it together.
Loiskalalanekent on February 4th, 2007 05:05 am (UTC)
Sounds like us running to the finish line on this chapter. We were terrified it would turn out badly since we were just exhausted when we wrote the last. But it seems that it went over well.

Which version are you basing Kara off of, movieverse or comicverse. Remind me?
Brian's FanFic Journal: Superman over the earthmr_beeto on February 4th, 2007 05:15 am (UTC)
Surely you're not suggest I base my Kara on a watered-down, plot-less, Salkinized blasphemy of the character, are you?

It'll be comic-verse, with some liberties (such as her age). I think it makes it more interesting if she's at an age that requires more adult guidance, like early teens, or terrible twos. I'm also changing the circumstances of her arrival on Earth: Kal-El has to go get her in response to an automated distress signal, rather than her landing on Earth to be discovered by Batman.

*bows to the King* Forgive me, your majesty, 'tis late in the evening. *snicker*

So it is current comicverse. Okay, then. I had thought so, but didn't want to assume. So, we're going to tweak the Batman/Superman version of the arrival? Beautiful.

I never doubted your Salkind hatred, my dear!

Actually, my Kara will be a bit of a hybridization. S:TM, S:II, SR movie-verse combined with a modified comic-verse of Kara. Don't know when I'll get to it - certainly not until I'm done with Home - but I've got some good scenes running through my mind.

Loiskalalanekent on February 4th, 2007 05:36 am (UTC)
It's sounds most excellent, my dear. I'm thoroughly intrigued, to say the least.

Let me see if it will let me do this:

Thanks for the image.

*Groans* Crap. I'm still trying to learn all of the html to use to make my posts look right. Thanks for the heads-up there, Brian. And you're incredibly welcome. I'll be looking around for more of them, if you'd like.
Brian's FanFic Journal: Superman Seriousmr_beeto on February 4th, 2007 05:57 am (UTC)
No problem. Once I get to the story, I'll probably hunt down some Kara icons, or make my own. Maybe I could cut this down:



I suspect that the Kara seated in the lower left would be closest to my Kara. No way Kal-El would let a 13-year-old show as much skin as some of the other supergirls. I might have to photoshop it a bit to edit out the others.
