Suggestions for my essay on writing movieverse Clois...

Hi everyone! First of all, THANK YOU to everyone who sent me a Valentinr yesterday - it was so sweet opening those. *hugs*

But, on to the main topic of this post. I have been asked very graciously by jen_in_japan to submit an essay about writing movieverse Clois to the new superhero_muses community. I have a million ideas tumbling about my head, so in order to help me get them into some semblance of order, I thought that I would ask my awesome f-list!

Those of you who write movieverse Clois (a large portion of my friends list), know that there are many issues in writing this couple. Trying to tackle them all caused me to write a 102,000 word fanfic novel, and I didn't even get to all of them! There are also certain differences about this couple's relationship that are movieverse specific, although we all know that all incarnations (comics, TV, cartoon) have influenced our characterizations to a greater or lesser degree.

Without biasing you about the main issues I see, I would like for anyone who is inclined to comment with the issues you see as being important to cover in an essay like this. I'm shooting for about 5,000 words, but it could be more or less. I promise to give credit where credit is due, if your suggestions make it into the final essay, okay? And I'll make sure to pimp it once it's published, so you can all go over and discuss it with the fine folks over there!

So, who wants to be first? :D
