Written in December 1999: my first episode rewrite, and my first long fic. The Mirror Crack'd
A rewrite of Tempus, Anyone?
that shifts the episode to late S2, the night before And the Answer Is...
Tempus accidentally snatches Lois before
she knows that CK=S -- and Wells isn't there to help Lois figure things out!
Disclaimer: dialogue and descriptions taken from the episode "Tempus, Anyone?" presumably belong to Warner Brothers; Superman, Clark Kent, Lois Lane, and the other citizens of Metropolis belong to whomever currently owns the copyright on those characters and locations. H.G. Wells belongs to himself, no doubt, but he's not in this story anyway. :)
Author's notes: Thanks to Sammi Burleigh for giving me the original inspiration for this story; to Margaret Brignell for introducing me to FoLCdom in the first place and doing a same-day delivery on her excellent beta-editing; and many, many thanks to the regulars at Zoomway's fanfic message board for their advice and encouragement! Without their help, this story would have never made it out of my brain, much less off my hard drive. ( The Mirror Crack'd )
