Generally, I HATE Ross' Work [He Makes Them ALL Look Too Old], But...  
This honestly couldn't be more perfect for the Blood Will Tell era if it tried. :D Dad isn't looking quite that old yet, but yeah. OOooh, yeah. *hugs you precious boys*

Damn, that's perfect! O_O

OT, Hotmail seems to be having issues, so I can see that I have email, but can't get to it. So, I'm not trying to ignore you or anything. :p

Isn't it, though? *misses her boys and can't wait to get LaOH rolling to get to write them again*

I didn't think you were. I just figured that you were busy with something and couldn't get back with me. Mostly boils down to 'GAH I DON'T WANT TO ALIENATE HER READERS WITH THE ANNE RICE WAY I WRITE' and "IS BRYAN IN THAT STUDY, BECAUSE HE'D BETTER BE?!'

Ah, I don't think anybody'll be alienated. And I don't need to pare anything down, just want to make sure that my stuff blends in well so it's not too jarring. :p

And B did a bunch of yard work this morning, so he's off the hook for the library. For now. ^_~

I just don't want you to have to worry about boring the hell out of your readers with this with he and Kala because her end isn't always gritty the way his is. I just don't want you suffering for it. ♥

*watches him dubiously from afar* For the moment. :P

And THIS is a fine example of why, while Jay bitches, Kala's original Blur costume is NOT the worst one out there. GOD, Kory! *headdesk*


Yeah. OH! When we start the Rematch scene, should she have the new uniform yet? Gotta decide what he ends up with for her.

What in the flying fuck!? O_o I've seen strippers wearing more clothes than that!

*mind boggles*

And I'm not even worried about my readers. I'm sure the die-hards will read it (what few there are), but the others likely won't even touch it b/c Kala's and OFC. I just hope it doesn't affect YOUR readership.

And this has been one of my major issues with a good portion of the DCU women. I know a lot of women who like her, but I just can't get past this. Just. can't. And to think, this is how Kala's worried the rest of the community might see her in that one scene.

See, I hate that you're going to have to deal with that. That's one of the few regrets I have in getting you mixed up in this. I just don't want you catching any hell for him getting involved with an OFC. *shuffles* And my readership will be fine. Like it or not, this is K's life and, as long as we run it as realistically as we can, I think they'll enjoy what we're working on. Even if they don't, I love the complex dance we're setting up here.

Most important, I LOVE IT. And I've been wanting to explore the possible triangle for a while now. So yeah.

That's exactly how I feel about it. Way too much skin, costumes that wouldn't protect you in a fight, high heels, and huge hair. It's all just a disaster waiting to happen for the characters, and a really obvious ploy to keep the fanboys interested. :/ AND apparently Diana's going back to the no-pants look?! O_o BAH.

Kala's gotta have a SERIOUS complex from all that.

And hey, I knew going in that most of my readers wouldn't touch it. But I like the pairing, they're a fascinating combo, and that's all that really matters, right? A ton of my fic doesn't ever get comments, anyway, so it's not like I'm not used to it. :p

There's a right way and a wrong way to be sexy when you're a female hero and you have to fight in your uniform. I think heels are okay, as long as they stay within reason. Boots with heels to occasionally make for a decent weapon when you want to angle a kick. Makes no sense to fight in a skirt [although I may have to bend that a little for one of her later cotumes] and less so to have a cape if you don't actually need it or if you're not a Super [yeah, you still don't in that case, but there are uses for it in flight]. The hair will just get in the way if it's down, so at least tie it back when the fight starts. Seriously, you can look sexy even if you're fully covered [which I'm pretty sure Kala will be, although it looks good on her].

Yep. Which is why I love the idea of, after trying something herself and seeing how Jay reacts, she drops it in his lap to come up with something.

Gotta say, though. After all of the bitching over the corset being part of her costume in training, the corset line in a certain other scene is SOOOO telling. XD

I guess I'm just a big fan of thick-heeled combat boots and pants. :p And though I love a proper cape on the right character, I kind of follow Edna's rule for new characters in my 'verses: NO CAPES! XD

And absolutely, fully-clothed can be really sexy. I mean, look at Selina! ^_~ Even zipped all the way up, she's smokin'. AND there have been artists that put her in those thick-heeled boots. Steph is an even better example, as Batgirl.

Which brings us to Kala's conundrum. We said black and silver, right? And a high collar? She could always go the pants + fitted leather jacket route. And it'd play into her idea that Jay is a motorcycle fetishist. XD

Hmm... might need to commission an artist from my f-list to help with a design. We'll come up with something!
Lois: Comics :: Supergirl Shadowedkalalanekent on August 25th, 2011 03:56 pm (UTC)
And I think Kala will likely be sporting both, at least for quite I while. And complete agreement on Selina and Steph. That's why I keep looking over at Batclan for ideas on The Blur's second costume. And you know I mentioned the zipper the other day. ;) As long as she's Blur, she's going to need to be as stream-lined as possible.

Black and silver, yes, ma'am. But we need to make sure that we stay as FAR from a certain other character's uniform choices as possible, especially with the color scheme. And that design totally would. XD She'd also totally give him hell over totally covering her up after cracks about the original uniform. :D

Ooooh! That would be SO awesome if you can manage it!

I just couldn't stop smiling. I miss that 'verse SOOOOO much!
