Lois tucked a loose strand of wavy hair behind her ear, waving with her other hand at the clouds of steam emanating from inside the hood of their rental car. Wow, that’s even more steam than I expected.
Apparently Clark agreed. “Oh, my,” he said, rubbing nervously at the bridge of his nose.
She coughed and leaned forward over the engine block, peering around to see if she could figure out why the car had overheated. But of course, it was all a charade. Lois knew why it had overheated.

And now that that's out there, I will feel compelled to finish it by tonight!
And now for a fic rec:
Yesterday I beta'ed Strays by professorjulia, a post-Dark Knight fic in 19 parts. The story is gen, and... well, let's just say that the ECQ got some surprises along the way! I'm pimping this because I don't think most of my friends' list knows this author (you may have read her story Sunday Fathers, though.)
The first part is up here at LJ and on ff.net.
Check it out!
