Aw, I'm really touched...

Y'all!

I loved reading that get to know you meme... and you were so nice! I'm storing all those nice things in my heart for a long time. *hugs you all*

Well, unfortunately, getting grades finished kicked my butt again. On the upside, they're done now! So I hope to be able to write a bunch more on DV Ch. 37. I have only 788 words so far, but there's still some goodness I can share.

“I’ve never really spent very much time here… except right after it was created. This is where I learned all about my heritage.” He walked them over to the console. “There was a vast store of knowledge contained on the crystals here…” His face turned grave once again, and he traced the edges of one of the empty holes, lost in thought.

Jason looked absolutely awestruck with the contraption, even as dead as it was. He slowly reached a hand toward it, and then flinched back. “Is it okay for me to touch it?”

Clark simply nodded.

As Jason gently touched the sides, standing on tiptoe to peer into the empty holes, Clark continued. “I wish that you could have seen my Kryptonian father’s image. He was quite impressive. A little bit stern and frightening, actually. But he had so much to teach me.” Clark began to settle a hand on Jason’s shoulder, possibly unsure of whether his touch would be welcomed, but went ahead. Jason’s attention was completely on the alien technology, and he didn’t react at all. “I hope I can be as helpful as he was in explaining all about Krypton.”

Again, that was a nice teaser, sweetie.

*hugs*

It makes me eager to see what you come up with for a complete chapter.

Awww, that's so sweet. I've enjoyed reading it as well.

It was just like a big lovefest, wasn't it? *all squishy inside*

I hope I have this for you waiting in your email by tomorrow morning... but I'll let you know the status if not. K?

It most certainly was and it was great. It did make me feel all warm and squishy inside.

I look forward to what you'll send me and I hope we can talk tonight. Check out kryptonsite about spoilers for Justice, you may find some of those spoilers to be very interesting.

I just read them!!! That episode seems very, very promising.

Aw, I will SO miss Ollie... :(

But I'm happy that Lionel is still seeming to be on the Kents' side. Earlier this season it looked like he might be a double agent.

That does look EXCELLENT all around, though. Can't wait!

Aw! Father and son together in the Fortress! I like!

Those 'getting to know you' memes were a hoot, weren't they?! *wubs*
htbthomas

Yep. A bunch of people asked whether that's where they were going... so I figured making my teaser about it wouldn't hurt.

I sure did learn a lot about everyone on my list. *wubs back*

Liked the teaser! But is Lois with them? I mean, is it her point of view??
htbthomas
Jan. 16th, 2007 05:14 pm (UTC)
Lois is with them. This is her description about what is going on. She's just being quiet in that section, while Clark tries to explain/bond with his son. :)

You realize that this is probably going to be my favorite chapter of yours... competing with the last chapter. Jason - Jason - and more Jason.

I wanted to tell you though that I think I found a typo?

"...possible unsure of whether his touch..."

I think it should be possibly, but I could be wrong.
htbthomas
Jan. 16th, 2007 05:13 pm (UTC)
Argh... yes, that was a typo. Thanks for catching it! There's a reason even the Super!Beta needs a beta team... *facepalm*

Yes, I think you might like this a lot! But, there's also plenty of Clois, never you fear. :)

Wow. Just when I think you can't top yourself, you go ahead and surprise me. This looks like an AMAZING chapter. I'm very excited. Luthor isn't lurking in the corner is he? He's got to be somewhere!

I hope it is as amazing as you're hoping... *bites nails* There are threads from before that I am finally tying together, and I hope I do it justice. :)

Of course you will, sweetie.

Your teaser is eating at my brain. Must...Jason...study...Lois...for...Clark...midterms...Superman...

I'm gonna have to do that meme this weekend; I don't wanna miss out on the lovefest!
htbthomas
Jan. 17th, 2007 12:21 pm (UTC)
Please, Michelle, study for those midterms... and then you can fill out the meme. I'm going to post an entry later that explains why there will be no update today! *cries*

Ooooo... Shiny... XD;

A little stern and frightening, actually. - Hah, it reminds me of a scene in the Donner cut of II when Jor-el suddenly stares at Lois with the evil eye when Clark decides to give up his powers. I sure would be freaked out by that O___o; but I love the fact she's wearing his shirt! X3

Can't wait for the rest! :D
htbthomas
Jan. 17th, 2007 12:23 pm (UTC)
Actually, that vision of frightening Jor-El comes right from the Donner cut! I kind of wish I'd seen that BEFORE starting to write this story. But I have to stay true to the original theatrical version (even if Donner's was SO much better)... and that's what you'll be seeing in this chapter. But that doesn't mean I can't use the characterizations I found there!
solitary_zero
Jan. 17th, 2007 01:19 pm (UTC)
Yay, I got it right! :D I know what you mean...having seen the Donner cut of II really shows just how awesome it would have been had Donner stayed on. Cheapskate Warner Bros... ¬_¬

How did I miss this post?!? *blames Cosmo* ;-)

Ooh, I simply cannot wait to read this chapter! Even my Jason hasn't see the Fortress yet (but, he has another journey to take first). *grins*

This is gonna be so good!! *dances around eagerly*

Aw, you didn't miss it! I posted it around 10am on Tuesday, while you (we) were at work.

I hope I have the dang thing done soon - but I had computer issues last night... it may not be until Friday or Saturday. *cries*

Hey, this is solojones from ff.n. Thanks for tipping me off about this LJ. I'm so upset now, though, that I only discovered this story near its ending. I absolutely love discussing stories with the author and other readers as they're coming along.

I enjoyed the teaser. To me it's terribly sad that Clark has lost his recordings of his father, and this just brings that more sharply into focus. But I look forward to seeing more of his interaction with Jason here. The father/son motifs in SR were some of the best stuff in it, and so far you've done a fantastic job handling those themes as well. Can't wait!

Re: excitement
Hey, there! I'm really glad you made it over here! As you can see, I have a bunch of really great, encouraging friends around here, who somehow want to help me feed me evilness. ;)

I'm always a little unsure whether I handle the father/son dynamic correctly (as I don't personally have any experience with it - we have a daughter), but it's great to hear that you're enjoying it.

I looked at your profile - Five Iron Frenzy? "These are not my pants..." *grin* (My husband has 3-4 of their albums. Seriously fun.)

Re: excitement
Oh dear, I just read my profile and that was mortifying. I don't think I'd changed that since I was about 16. Well now I have, and it's a lot more accurate... although Five Iron Frenzy is still my favourite band. I have all their albums. I love their mixture of nerdiness, scathing social commentary, and deeply thoughtful songs.

I don't think the father/son dynamic is really intrinsically different than the mother/daughter one. As long as one is aware of the differences in character caused by gender and society, then I don't think it's unreasonable to expect that someone like yourself can write the father/son dynamic.

I don't suppose it's much more of a challenge of the writer's imagination than writing about, say, an alien with superpowers ;)

Spectacular teaser! I'm thrilled that Jason and Clark are finding a way to bond over this important part of their lives.
htbthomas
Jan. 17th, 2007 05:10 pm (UTC)
Yes, it's nice that I can finally show them interacting completely - with no secrets between them anymore. :)

I hope my darn internet comes back soon...

I really loved the teaser you put up. Jason moments are among my favorites especially with his dad. I really really hope that they have some of that in the next movie since Tristan is coming back or so they say.
