DV - Ch. 24 Writing Update

Whoa - ho - ho!  Hold the presses!  I actually got some writing done today!  So I am doing a happy little dance here.  

I like Tuesdays.  I have all sorts of cute singing children passing through my room... (no junior high in other words).  It's the only day of the week like that.  On Wednesday and Friday, I have four classes of junior high... In. A. Row.  *wah* Poor me.  You can just tell I love them...

Anyway, here's is your next installment of tease-y goodness.  Pray that I am not hit with 10 chapters to beta from everyone this evening (you're off the hook alamo_girl80, since you sent it before I posted this).

---

Entering the newsroom this morning with Richard felt like a complete contrast to a few days ago with Clark. That day, she had been certain every eye would be drawn to them, somehow knowing their changed status after their visit to the Fortress. But no one had paid them any attention.
 
This morning, however, although she wished no one would notice them, it seemed everyone’s gaze was directed on the two of them. Was it the fact that Lois wasn’t striding in, talking animatedly? That Richard wasn’t laughing fondly?   Could every person feel the tension that radiated off them in waves? Maybe not, but it certainly felt like it.
 
Richard peeled off for his office and Lois walked, eyes down, to her own desk. She was afraid that if she looked up at anyone, her careful façade of calm would crack. She wanted so badly to look at Clark’s desk, to see that goofy wave and bright smile… but she was certain the blaze of love she was now feeling would show too strongly on her face. 
 
How was she going to handle this? Being so close to him every day and night without being able to show him outwardly how she felt? Lois had never been very demonstrative, the opposite, actually… but having to suppress what she was feeling now was going to be torture!

Of course, I can already imagine the reaction from some of you... *wink*

Ooh, yey, what a lovely post-lunch break surprise to get me through the rest of the work day! I'm reading about 90 other fics right now and most of them are in this "how will they live their lives" moments and since I've been reading the comics for ages I'm like "it's okay! Just get married, don't worry, it'll all work out!" Haha. Anyway, comic nerd mode off now, I can't wait to see what you do with their relationship ^_^ Hopefully if I just keep reading your fic I can restrain myself from writing my own.

I started reading the Superman comics recently too (am a Marvel fanatic otherwise)... so I know what you mean... but 90? And they're all in this stage? *facepalm*

Oh god, I don't know wheter to hug you or smack you upside the head! They are going to suffer SO much! My poor Clois...

I feel really sorry for Richie boy though...

Angst and Superpowers. Oh my.

Please no smack... I don't have super-reflexes... ;)

I think superpowers make a good combination with almost anything! Angst, mystery, action, sex... mm.

Sounds like my Wednesday. I am blissfully junior high-free on Wednesdays. :-) Wanna guess how thrilled I am that tomorrow is Wednesday?

Ooh, that was a great teaser! I'm quite anxious to read that next part. Hope you don't get swamped tonight. Rest assured, I will not be sending anything, since there's not much to my next chapter as of yet... *makes a face*

Well, at least ONE of us will be happy on Wednesday... *sigh*.

Oo! Are you going to be sending something to me when it IS done? :D

Nah, it's nothing...*sitting on the edge of her chair, cursing because it's not weekend yet, so, we'll have to wait four to five days for the actual chapter!* ;)

Oh, no no no! My turnaround is 48 hours, my darling. If I've started on it, you can be darn sure it'll be out by Thursday!

I tend to outline and dream it out fully, and then write like a madwoman until it's done with every spare second.

Ah, just what I expected to see happen at the Planet when Richard and Lois walk in together post break-up. If Lois feels bad about being able to show Clark any affection, imagine what he probably feels like especially now since Lois is returning his feelings. You can just feel the tension in the air and who knows if you can cut with a knife. Perhaps an Adamantium knife. lol. This is a nice snippet and I eagerly await the full chapter to beta.

And you'll get it my dear... as soon as it's done. I'm thinking maybe late tonight or mid-morning tomorrow. If all goes well, that is.

And then I can do that little bit of writing you want me to as well! ;)

She wanted so badly to look at Clark’s desk, to see that goofy wave and bright smile… but she was certain the blaze of love she was now feeling would show too strongly on her face.

So adorable!!

I do love this tease so much!!! It's the perfect next to the last chapter! I just hope the entire chapter will come soon!!! ;D

Kiss!

Well, as you obviously saw... it's coming pretty soon. A day or two at most. I read everyone's comments on everything just the same as you... don't worry about replying to someone else's commnent!

Oh *wheew* I'm off the hook. Well, considering it took my wayward Muse four freaking days to get back over here and work with me, so i could get the stinking chapter done...Hey, I'm in gravy land tonight.

And if anyone else is reading these comments, Bitsy's 'Life' fic and your "DV" are my faves too. I had to cut down on my SR fic reading, lest I get confuzzled. But those are my top 2!

Oh, and I like my fic. I guess I should say that I like my own fic. And I like betaing Sean Montgomery's stuff too. She rocks.

Oh! Your Teaser! You're are a mean, wicked woman. Makes me want to go throw away my teaser. *grins* I suck at teasers. Me. Want. More.

Hey Bitsy, that goes for you too! *points and grins*

Wubbles!

Aw... thanks, Mel. Obviously as you look at your empty inbox this morning, I did not get to Ch. 9 But I will wholeheartedly try today! Depends on this STUPID school accreditation red-tape nonsense chart thingy I have to get done by Friday. Grr.

And Sean Montgomery's too! Really!
