Looked over the shoulder of ohginnyfan:

You have a 0% chance of going postal!

Congrats! You're not going to shoot up a strip mall anytime soon. You're so well-adjusted, it's creepy.

I still have a ways to go with Chapter 38. But I have high hopes that I'll get it finished by tonight. *crosses fingers* So here's a teaser...


----

Lois stood before Clark in shock, a million emotions and thoughts tumbling through her mind. Clark, his blue eyes bright and hopeful, waited with quiet expectation. His palm was still held out toward her, gold band glittering in the light from the console. To the side, Jason was standing quietly, wide-eyed. Jor-El and Lara’s images were still as well – paused, possibly… but it felt as if the entire chamber waited with held breath. Through the turmoil of feelings, a tiny voice whispered to her, almost too quiet to hear, Say Yes! She tried to open her mouth… she needed to say something… anything…

“What?”

A small smile turned up the corner of Clark’s mouth, and he repeated, “Will you marry me, Lois?”

Lois blushed with embarrassment. “Oh, yes, I know… I didn’t exp—I’m just… It’s so…” A little louder, the voice called to her again, Say Yes! She swallowed and looked around at everyone. “I’m just surprised, that’s all.”

A slight flush stained Clark’s cheeks as well. “I surprised myself, actually. My mother – I mean, my adoptive mother – knew I was thinking about it… I hope she doesn’t throttle me for asking you before she’s gotten the chance to meet you… but with the Fortress restored, I knew I had to.”

She was amazed again at how easily he could surprise her. Say Yes! “It’s… wow. I mean, Richard and I just…” Lois’ eyes drifted toward Jason again. If I feel shell-shocked right now, I can only imagine how he’s feeling… “It’s only been a few days. People at work – what will they think? I mean, Perry knows, but just imagine the watercooler conversation! And we just told Jason about it… and…” She realized she was babbling and stopped suddenly. With a serious look, Lois added, very slowly, “With all the talk about me and Superman… it would be awfully odd-seeming, don’t you think?”

Clark’s face fell. His fingers gently closed around the shining ring, and he began to retract his hand. Lois reached out to catch his wrist. Say Yes! “I didn’t say no…”

----


Pray that I stay focused this afternoon and evening!

ETA: Oo! Lookie! New Heroes dish!

Absolute beauty! In the situation in which they find themselves, her reply makes perfect sense. His first reaction after all this *would* be to put that ring on her finger, but it will make for a very awkward situation all around at this moment. More, more!

Yeah, there are definitely issues to consider... And there is more! Just still working on it at the moment. :)

Oh no! *try to not cry* I feel so bad for Clark!!! But Lois' reaction is understandable! Actually I thought her reaction is pretty perfect!!! But still, poor Clark!

Don't be too sad for him, dear. It ain't over 'til it's over, as the song goes...

I know, the last sentance is full of hope! :) But the one which came first

Clark’s face fell. His fingers gently closed around the shining ring, and he began to retract his hand.

OMG! I LOVE her reaction!

I almost expected her to let some inaudible blubber-flub fall out of her mouth...*snicker*

Would it be Lois if she did anything else?

Although, I still remember her reaction on TNAoS back in the day with shivers. "Who's asking? Clark...? Or Superman...?" And I haven't seen that ep in a decade!

Check my ETA! Heroes scoop!

*runs around the room in circles doing a happy dance*

Yay for teasers! Yay for a great and reasonable (and realistic!) reaction! Yay for more writing!

*continues running around the room*

I'm so glad you thought it was realistic! Now slow down, there! You'll run into something!

*sighs dreamily*

I loved her reaction so far. It was a very Lois response. I feel really bad for Clark but that last line gave me some hope. She didn't say no.
I cannot wait to read how the rest of this conversation goes.

That's right - she didn't say no! I hope you like the rest of it. It's been fun to write.

whoo! I wait eagerly for the chapter :)

Haha, I'm almost finished with my 12 days of clois fic, I don't suppose you would be too busy to beta it in time if I have to post it on 10th Feb?
htbthomas
Jan. 27th, 2007 01:30 am (UTC)
Well I hope I have it in a day or two!

Oh, yes, I have time to beta. LOL, I don't even have mine started and it's due on Feb. 7th!

YES! Haha, waiting makes a surprise better anyway :)

Haha, thank you :) I'm sure you'll get yours done on time, since you have your basic plan. XD I still have about 500 to a 1000 odd words to go. sigh sigh.

Oh, yes...do SAY YES, Lois!! *squee*

And the Heroes scoop makes me excited and nervous all at once! *gulps*

Hope to read your finished chapter soon. :-D

Considering you already KNOW what she's going to say... ;)

I want to finish... I just can't make it tonight, though. Night night.

I just can't make it tonight, though.

I hear you. I am all kinds of tired tonight, myself. I'm not even sure how I'm keeping my eyelids open wide enough to type right now, actually...

G'night! ♥

I hope you get it sometime late tomorrow or early Sunday, but no telling. I wanted to finish tonight... but I am falling asleep as I type. Gotta go to bed.

Thanks for the encouragement!
