A new beginning. @ 08:26 pm


After ending things with Clark, Lois found herself uncomfortable at the Daily Planet.  It was strange to her; she'd always been able to do anything she wanted without much concern for the personal politics for things but after having been with Clark and having worked so closely with him--and not just at the newspaper--being there was both awkward and painful.  A few weeks after the breakup, Lois started putting out her application elsewhere and it wasn't long until she landed what appeared to be one hell of a job: PR executive for LexCorp.

A month in she found that she really enjoyed it.  It was a busy change of pace and she felt challenged.  And in usual Lois style, she was putting in long hours.  This was another long night in her office, handling the smaller details of a press release.  Someone else could have done it, but Lois was a perfectionist.  She'd do it herself.

Dogsitting (Clark) @ 11:48 pm


Lois still had Krypto.

She'd taken him when she left the JLA party and had kept him since.  He seemed a happier dog, honestly, getting his ears scritched and his tummy rubbed.  She'd gotten him some dog treats as well and was strongly considering buying him a dog bed, though she'd gotten used to him curling up in hers.  It made things less empty somehow and while Clark's absence was still sharp, she wasn't so entirely alone.

She did, however, wonder when the man himself would finally show up and what excuse for ignoring her he had this time.  Lois winced as that thought crossed her mind.  She was angry, but even she had a hard time hating Superman.

Especially because she was in love with him.

Christmas at the Watchtower @ 03:53 am


Christmas. Yule. Saturnalia. Dies Natalis Solis Invicti. Many cultures have celebrated and still celebrate a winter festival. There have been many names for it over the millennia. No matter the name it is a time to come together and celebrate with feasts and gifts with friends and loved ones.

Each culture has a legendary figure who would deliver gifts to children during this time. In Russia and some Slavic cultures he is known as Ded Moroz, Grandfather Frost, and comes not on Christmas but on New Year’s along with his granddaughter Snegurochka, or ‘”Snow Maiden”. In the United Kingdom and other parts of Europe he is known as Father Christmas. In the Netherlands and Belgium he is known as Saint Nicholas or “Sinterklaas” and in France he is known as Père Noël. In the United States we know him as Santa Claus.

No matter the name or who is delivering gifts, it is the season of peace, joy and togetherness. It is the season for thinking about loved ones, friends and those less fortunate. It is a time to witness the goodness and generosity the human race is capable of. It is a time for peace on Earth and goodwill toward man.
