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.

You have a nice day out together and chose to spend it at the library? Thats a little nerdy. But the truth is, i'm headed their now to get a copy of the novelization of Superman returns. So i'm no better. Isn't it lovely to lead such exciting lives. ;) Hopefully the evil villain will return lois before to long because i'm dieing to know who the assassin sent to kill lana is.

Well, we're reading junkies, so it's like shopping in a bookstore together, only free. Plus lunch at Panera Bread and writing up plenty of notes didn't suck, so... :D

And the chappie is up now if you want to discover the villains revealed. :D

Who said it was a nice day? We live in Florida, temperatures routinely hit the high nineties. Bleargh.


And it's a lot nerdy, actually, but I am proud of my inner geek. :D

glitter_my_glam? She sounds like a total bitch.

JUST KIDDING IT'S ME! I was delighted to wake up to fic, are you kidding? IT'S LIKE HAVING IT HAND DELIVERED. I just hope I can be useful even though I'm right now working on reading the FIRST damn epic.

*LOL* Now, see, that's love. And you've absolutely been useful! The first beta was very helpful. *snugs*

Yes, you have to give props to your betas! I'd be lost without my wonderful team (I have two now for my new story)!

Wow, 6,000-9,000 words per chapter! I can only dream of that many words per chapter. Amazing!

I see the 12Days fic is up! It's been a long day, but I'm headed over them to read it!

Hope you can find some time to read my little story over there! *hugs*

HEE!

I really don't know what we'd do without the betas we've had over the years. I honestly don't.

The 12 Days is up and the chapter just went up! Don't forget to tell us what you thought of last chapter, although I think you'll like this one more. :D *snugs*

And I'm trying to. Now that mine is up and the next chapter is in two weeks, I should have some breathing room, I hope. Although we did start the 20 Years Before LS drabbles. And we have a few prompts to write. If all else fails, I'm off all next weekend. :D

I will write my reviews of your latest chapters. Wow!! Blowing everyone away here! Fantastic work, ladies.

I am catching up with reviewing slowly but surely. My SR fic is in the can, just tweaking it at this point. So, I will be doing a lot more reading and reviewing over the next several weeks, if the Muse will leave me alone for five minutes.

But damn, the nibbles at my brain for a future Smallville fic (with kids)!! won't stop! Oh, boy!! :D:D
Lois: Clois :: Never Alonekalalanekent on August 10th, 2009 05:28 pm (UTC)
And I totally love you for the reviews, especially since we really want to know how well this storyline is coming across.

I know the feeling where the Muse is concerned. She can totally pound you with ideas at one point and then pull the best storyline EVER out of your head without warning. She can be a pest, huh? ;)

Reeeeally? Sounds like an interesting little thought. :D

*groans* It was a thought when I responded to your comment. Now, it's a full blown idea, which I've already written one chapter. It's called "Life with th Kents!" The kids are 5 years old and Lois and Clark of the Smallville verse are trying to cope with the powers.... yep, the powers!!

*groans again*!!!! Without warning.. you said, hon!! *hugs*

PS: I did manage to review your recent chapters on your journal. FFN was acting freaky... *kicks the site*

And *gasp* ... I wish I could help with your layout... but I'm LJ illiterate... sorry! *hugs*
