Hi fellow FoLnCs smile I'm new (only signed up yesterday) though I've been lurking for a few months. So I already know what a fantastic, welcoming bunch you guys are and I'm looking forward to getting to know you all smile1

I'm looking for a story on lcfanfic. I've tried to find it through find a story and failed. Superman had saved several people at a fire or something and I think it was mostly over when Lois got there. She talked to some professional she already knew, a firefighter or something and they were looking over at him and I think he said something wondering how Superman did it and how it must affect him since even they had to have therapy after situations like that and he probably had nothing like that in response to Lois being her usual adoring self about how great he is. I think it got Lois thinking about how he's not invincible and perfect and how he must feel bad sometimes. Maybe she talked to him about it because he admitted it was hard and talked to someone. I was really taken with this concept and I've been looking for it since. Does anyone know what it is?

Hey, Petra_Kent! Welcome to the boards. Don't you just hate it when that happens? You know you've read the story but can't find it or can't remember it... Drives me nuts.

I don't know if this is the story you're looking for, but it sounds KINDA like a scene from Kathy Brown's When Friends Become Lovers. It wasn't a fire but a hostage situation...but it's been years since I've read this one so I could be wrong.

Do you remember anything else about the story? (i.e., year you read it, long, short, any particular timeline or villain?) That'll help narrow it down because there are a lot of stories with fires on the archive.

wave Best of luck.

Hi folc4evernaday! Nice to meet you grin

Oh yes it's so annoying. I do it all the time and I usually find it in the end, the search on the archive is really good. I checked out When Friends Become Lovers. Great story though not the one I'm looking for huh

I can't really remember anything else. I don't think it was a recent story, and it was probably a long one. The disaster might not have been a fire but it was something where there were firefighters or police or something there after. It might have been the aftermath of a hostage situation for all I know. Wherever Lois's friend was from, they were male and they were both looking at him helping after it was mostly over, I think, when this conversation happened. She was thinking about it and must have said something to him later on because I'm pretty sure I remember him at least admitting how hard it could be. I don't think it was one where he talked to Dr. Friskin though I just don't know.

Welcome to the boards!

Is it Night Errant by Merideth Knight? Sorry, I can't link since I'm not on my pc.

In this story Lois chastised a fire investigator, Ernest Pickering, for having Superman work three shifts in a row, and threatened to report him to the nonexistent "Superheroes Union."

I'm thinking that scene wasn't part of the summary in the story you're thinking of, and may be hard to find with search. Maybe it will come to one of us.

Welcome to the boards!

Trying to come up with a story that matches your description, yet so far I'm drawing a blank.

ANY further clues would be great!

Hi! And thanks smile

No. Again, wonderful story but not the one. I think you're right that the summary doesn't mention this and it was a relatively small part of the story. So it could be anything. I'm starting to think I imagined it!

Hey thanks smile

I don't remember ANYTHING else. It's maddening, I've been looking for it for months whinging

At least I can eliminate stories by everyone who replied to this, that's something.

Hello and welcome!

I'm hesitant to make this suggestion, since it is one of my own stories, but could it have been After the Fall ? In a deviation from canon, Clark killed Nor and consequently sank into a depression; Lois tries to help him come to terms with his feelings. At one point in the story, someone (not Lois) does suggest that Superman join an online support group.

Joy,
Lynn

Petra_Kent,

Just got this from an unregistered fan. Maybe give this one a try?

Quote:
Hey, I'm a L&C fan who has never signed onto the message boards. Just noticed the request for a certain story. Since I have no way to contact PK, I hoped you would pass it on.

The story she is looking for is Just One Bad Day Away by Michael Haney. The scene she describes with Lois and Ben Thomas, the MFD fireman, is a good ways into the story, since there is a long back story about Clark prior to his arrival in Metropolis. So she will be reading several pages before she gets to that part.

Since the original story was found, I'm hijacking this thread.
I'm fairly certain I found the story in question at nfanfic.com.
Things I remember:
Lois and Superman making love
Superman waking up, leaving naked, falling asleep in his own bed, and waking up with no memory of the event
Lois discovering she's pregnant, and refusing to tell anyone who the father is
Clark finding his missing super suit in her apartment and realizing the dreams he's been having are memories

I've been looking for several days and I can't seem to find it. Help?

Yeah on the sequel she has a note about a NFIC version of "It's a Super Life". Maybe try writing her for it? I don't see it on any of the boards. smile1

The nfic version of the sequel is on the site I mentioned. You just have to contact the admin for nfic access.
