Hi everyone:

The chapter is done. I had to turn off all my messengers and email for a while (too distracting!) to get it done. 2000 words, including the author's note... :)

Of course what would a status update be without a teaser?

-----

Lois gripped her mini-recorder tightly and took a deep breath – she might have tried to shout, to scream around the hand clamped over her mouth – but the pistol stabbed harder into her back, and she choked it off, heart leaping to her throat.
 
“I would think twice about that, Ms. Lane,” he warned her, his pleasant tone jarring to her ears. “The Man of Steel may be faster than a speeding bullet… but can he stop a bullet at point-blank range?”
 
As fast as Clark was, she didn’t want to tempt fate by trying to find out the answer to that question. Not now, not when I have so much to lose… my little Jason… and what would this do to Clark…especially after just finding our way back to each other… Lois wanted to kick herself! Stupid, stupid, stupid, Lane! What the hell were you thinking, turning your back on him? That’s a rookie mistake… 
 
Mitchener continued to speak quietly during her mental tirade. “I’m going to remove my hand now. You will give me the recorder in your hand, and then we are going to walk silently to the parking garage. Nod your head if you understand.”
 
Pulse pounding, her mind raced instantly through all the options she saw before her. She could scream anyway, and likely end up with a bullet in her for her trouble. She could try to elbow him in the stomach, but what if his finger instinctively squeezed the trigger? She could try to kick his feet out from underneath him, or knock the gun out of his hands, but he was staying behind her and likely out of reach. Maybe on the way down to the garage, she could find a way to make a break for it…

ETA: Got it back from mark_clark and jenna_knight.  Betty will probably have it for me by this evening... *crosses fingers*

Well, the illegal trailer is gone... :(  But at least we got to see it in it's awesome goodness!

Yes, new chapter on the way! It took a long time to write. Action-oriented chapters are hard for me, the relationship ones easy. Opposite of you, I guess? *wink*

Are you going to see Spidey 3 next May?

OMG!!!! That trailer was even better than the other one (I didn't think it was possible). Great find. Now I'm off to look over your update!

I totally agree!

I was particularly happy with Eddie Brock in the church (yay for canon!!) and all the extra MJ and Peter shots thrown in! Woo hoo!

And thanks for getting the chapter back so quickly. *hugs*

The teaser was great. Can't wait for those betas of yours to get it back to you. *wink**wink*

That Spider-Man 3 trailer is pretty good. It was nice to see Venom at the end. But what Brock said in the church... naughty, naughty. The animated effects was pretty damn good and the new stuff was great to see.

Well, of course, you're always the first to get it back to me...

Brock in the church seemed pretty damn close to the comic, didn't it? I am seriously going to look that issue up again to see...

Only difference - Peter Parker, right? He didn't know until after bonding.

Way to go with the latest chapter.

Being good and not watching vids while I go back to Chapter 2 of "Recovery".

Being good, eh? Still on LJ, I see... lol.

Look for it this evening (or at least an update on posting status.)

Hey, miss! Thanks for sharing the trailer! It's cool to see the 3D special effects!! ^^
And about your fic, I'm still waiting for the complete chapter, hehe! *hugs*

You don't really want to see the complete chapter, do you? Heh heh heh.

I don't think I even know what 'gnuf' means! BTW, I am working on the beta right now! Hour or less!

Ooh, that was an excellent teaser. I'm terribly anxious for that next chapter, since I'm not spoiled this time around! ;-)

And Spidey 3? Is gonna be awesome! *happy dances*

Don't be too anxious. It's coming soon.

Spidey 3 is going to be so so so so so awesome! *joins you in happy dance*

Dude!! That trailer was WAY better than the offical one! Vemon at the end! *gets chills*

And a chapter off to the betas! Another wonderful teaser! *begins bouncing in her chair*

I know - it was better! It makes me wonder why they edited the official one so much. Maybe there'll be one closer to this when we get near the release date...

Thanks, sweetie! No word yet... keep your eyes peeled!

No word yet... keep your eyes peeled!

*tapes her eyes open* I'm gonna try and not think about Lois at gunpoint while being led to the parking garage... but it's gonna be hard!
