Just A Note To Say "Thank You!"  
I so owe you for this, elliania! Thanks so much, Kat, for all the work you've put into this and the work you're still doing. I wanted a new layout so badly for this page, and you've made it look beautiful! It's so bright and there's so much room! Even my icons look bigger! So I just wanted to say how much it means to me that you did this! *hugs*

Also in the news, we're practically to the end of the chapter as of 3:13 this morning. Only two more scenes to get through after the one we're in. Richard gets a larger-than-life surprise, Kitty gets a shock, and Lois has to face her first night in the house without the twins. At last count, we're at nearly 4,000 words. Should be at least 1,400 more by the end of the night tomorrow. Can't wait to see everyone's reactions. Hope we've made it a bit more exciting than last week's offering.  :D

Here's a taste of what we have planned:

She had to get more batteries for the weakening flashlight, had to keep looking, no matter how hopeless the area looked.  Even if Kala and Jason weren’t here, maybe there was a clue.  One of Kala’s hair-ties, maybe one of those goofy-looking Godzilla pens from Jason’s bag.  Maybe one of the backpacks themselves.  She had to keep looking…

Lois froze.  There, in the hallway leading to this area, a shadow that hadn’t been there before.  An elongated shadow, like a man’s.  Lois’ hand crept into her purse, seeking the familiar rosewood grip of her Ladysmith.

I am so excited for this story, and for the new layout of your page. It's so wonderful, I know I already left you a comment but I'll say it again, Elainna did a grand and great job on this. I loved the little tidbit you gave too. Wonder what Surprise lies in store for Richard? I'll be able to see the story without having to go to the Library, because my friends own two towers and two laptops, which makes it easy to get to the computer, but anyway I'll be checking back for more updates....

YAY! That's great, Ella! Now if only we could get you a computer that won't freak out and break down on you...

And things are definitely heating up over here in the land of LS... Poor Richard is momentarily shocked speechless. *LOL*

Okay so um how about one more tiny teaser before the big post on Saturday....

Oh, beautiful! Wow! So happy for you. Great job, elliania!

SO happy! And don't think I forgot about what I owe you. Abby and I got so caught up last night I didn't even get to review her chapter and I was on talking to her.

Tell me you still love me. Right? *whines, bits lip, looks worried*
Barbara: Love - SMLMJhtbthomas on March 23rd, 2007 06:04 pm (UTC)
I still love you... just expect to be nagged (as is a mother's prerogative) until you do!

*hugs, then pokes*

*giggles, grins, blows a raspberry*

Yes, Mother! And hey, be happy! New chapter tomorrow morning and on time, too!

Yup. Looks good to me. : )

Yay for teasers! *snickers and winks*

And, oh! The "I hope you find a way" pic! I had just tried to save that to my computer, and the result was a dinky, blurry little thing that I was bummed about. I absolutely adore that pic. It's so... *sigh*
Loiskalalanekent on March 23rd, 2007 05:06 pm (UTC)
I'll send you a big one, my twin. I just had to reuse Sophie's artwork!

YAY!! *screams!*
Lois: Who Doesn't?kalalanekent on March 23rd, 2007 05:22 pm (UTC)
*LOL* Hush, Spoiler Queen! And Richard still can't talk. I don't think I've ever seen the man this quiet for this long... *LOL, poke* Breathe, Richard!

Spoiler Queen? Oh, great... there's ANOTHER icon I need. ; )

And thanks, Caroline! I really love your new layout, too! Is there anything you can't make? Remind me to poke you next time you do an icon request... :D

OMG Love the fanart!!! It is beautiful, isn't?! Wow!

You're very welcome, m'dear! ^-^ I'm really glad you like it!

Richard gets a larger-than-life surprise Oww! That's sounds interresting!! :D

Great teaser, as usual!! Poor mommy Lois! Can't wait for the whole chapter!!!
Lois: Kala Josephine Lanekalalanekent on March 23rd, 2007 05:29 pm (UTC)
The fanart is beautiful, isn't it? Sophie did it back around November of last year. I really need to repost the whole pic, but it's too early yet. I'll repost it with 12 Days, though. :D

And you did such a amazing job with this, Kat! I can't thank you enough!

As to the teaser...;)

The whole pic ? Is that why I can see another top head before Clark? O_o? What is it that you don't show us?
Loiskalalanekent on March 23rd, 2007 06:04 pm (UTC)
If you *really* want to see it early, you'll have to go far back in the history. It's from back around the time I started the LJ.

And yep, there are other people in that pic. Short people. ;) :D

I have maybe this to propose you. It looks fake, doesn't it ? '~' I'm not very objective since I worked on it.

At a glance, I don't even notice that it's a manip. I looks okay to me, Kat. :D How do I load it?

In the same place you pasted the code (Profile/Journal;Customize Journal/Custom Options/Custom CSS) go at the bottom and slowly roll up (it's the better to find it) and when you'll see the URL for the Header, change it for this one:


Don't erase any of ' on each size, just change the url.
Lois: Jason Garen Lanekalalanekent on March 23rd, 2007 05:36 pm (UTC)
What do you think, Kat? I like it, but I do wonder if maybe I should stick to the original. I didn't realize that it would be so difficult to make those pics smaller. I'm so sorry I've had you working like this!

This is your final choice, hon! *run away*
