Maybe We'll Make It After All...  
The Glow of Embers After is currently at 2,747 and five pages. There may be about 100 more words going on it before we send it off. saavikam77, love, is there any possibility of an emergency beta either late tonight or tomorrow morning? I know we're cutting it close, but I dread posting something unbetaed.

Warning, though: This is one of the sadder Snapshots, but it's important to the timeline of LS. And I've been looking forward to this one for a while now.

The woman responsible for creating the memory was the very one to interrupt it. “Are you all right?” When he glanced over at her, she was giving him a most quizzical look. One with more than a little worry just barely hidden.

Giving himself a mental shake, Clark tried to smile at her. She couldn’t guess what was behind his mixed expression, regardless of the bittersweet poignancy of it. “Sure,” he heard himself say in a voice far calmer than he felt, “I’m fine. Just … thinking about the story, that’s all.”

But those hazel eyes were sharp and the brain behind them doubly so. Amnesia or not, Lois’ reporter’s instincts hadn’t been dulled in the least. He didn’t miss the scowl that crossed her features as they walked over to an empty table. Her brow was furrowed when she looked across the table at him once they got settled. “Clark, did I do something stupid while we were in Niagara? Tell me the truth.

Okay, so one task nearly done. Now we just have to get back to next week's chapter and our noms for the Movieverse Awards. Holy geez, this has been one seriously busy month. *collapses* Did I really just take a break? Are you sure?

Whenever you're ready, hit me! I'll do my best to knock out the beta as soon as I receive the fic. :)

I'm still working on my noms, too. Man, there were a lot more fics than I'd thought this year!

*hugs* Breathe, hon.

Holy Geez, I don't ever want to cut that so close again. Especially when we want to have the chapter to you by Friday at the latest. *wince*

OMG, I know, right? I really just need to take a whole day and do them, but I don't have a day available. *headdesk* I think I'll be trying for tomorrow night when I get home from work. I have several done, but not even half. :(

I totally hear ya'! Funny though, I think a closer deadline actually makes me get off my ass to get the beta done. XD Stupid me an my penchant for taking things right down to the wire. My brain must be wired funny. :p

I have about 2/3 of my noms done mow. There'll probably be a few categories I don't fill out, like other pairing romance and OC romance. I tend to stay as far away from OC romances as I can get. *cringes at Mary Sues* But I'm trying to spread the love around this time, and I even went to the PIT last night to dig up fic I hadn't seen yet. :p Now it's just down to reading all the multi-part stuff!

*huge huggles*

*breaks out the pompoms* You can do it!

I'm looking forward to the sudden last-minute story posting blitz... at least I hope that's what's going to happen.

That was pretty scary, running this late with a chapter overdue also. Hooooooly geez.

*collapses in a heap, but knows she has to go out for Latin food shortly and get back to writing*
