I am rarely one with the interactive memes, but this one sounds like it'd be nice to do, maybe get the writing juices flowing again sometime soon, so Ask me what happens after any of my stories, and I'll tell you! Anything but WiPs is up for grabs on this one.

Also, OMG the cat is SO CUTE. I'll just be over here, dangling something filled with catnip in front of her adorable little face.

Fraser's standing so close to Ray, and Ray's thinking - Ray's thinking maybe they're going to kiss, maybe they're going to kiss RIGHT NOW and he's leaning in, angling for it, and Fraser steps back, clears his throat, starts to talk about something that Ray can't even really hear over the roaring in his ears, the tingling of his body, because this is it, this. is. it. This has to be it, and Fraser's still talking when Ray closes the distance between them in two steps, and pulls Fraser's head down to his, kisses Fraser's still moving lips, kisses and kisses and kissing him until Fraser moans and pushes him against the wall. When Fraser pulls back, Ray says only, "I'm too tired for talking," and Fraser kisses him again.

What happens after the ending of "catch my troubled head"? I just read it for the first time today (and totally adored it, btw).

At first, Fraser kept looking at Ray like he expected him to disappear. He'd wake up in the mroning early and just sit there next to Ray until Ray woke up, and then he'd smile, lips soft and sweet, but it wouldn't reach his eyes. They were still dark, watching like he was seeing something that wasn't really there, and when he came home he'd kiss Ray for a long time, knuckles white and clenched around the fabric of Ray's shirt or jacket or whatever he was wearing.

The first month, Ray was kind of like that, too, so he could understand. He'd walk around the cabin, touching things, trying to learn their texture, trying to memorize it because sometimes he felt like it could all just fall away, leave him standing alone in the snow like this whole thing was a big dream.

The second month, though, when Fraser was still watching like he was waiting, still expecting Ray to change his mind and disappear, Ray felt like maybe he should say something, maybe he should do something, make Fraser realize he was there, he was staying, he was going nowhere without Fraser.

Except, it wasn't as easy as saying, "I love you," it wasn't like he could say, "I'm staying" and have Fraser believe it, because he knew Fraser, and more than that, Fraser knew him, and Fraser probably thought this was one of the things Ray did sometimes, got convinced of something and followed it through until he realized it was stupid. But this wasn't like that, this wasn't temporary, this wasn't stupid, this was neccessary.

Ray was out with the dogs, stumbling over and through the snow when he found it, and a couple of phone calls told him pretty quick that the land was for sale, cheap. The cabin was hardly big enough for the two of them and a bed, besides, Ray needed space for all the crap Stella and Frannie was sending up, and the way the light filtered through the trees when the sun was going down was perfect. He could just imagine it on Fraser's sleeping face, coloring him orange and red and warm.

So he bought it, arranged the deed of sale on the wooden table on the kitchen, and waited, smiling, for Fraser to come home.

Ohh, that was lovely! So sweet, and Fraser's all cautious, which feels just perfectly in character to me – he's been burned so badly before. This made me all melty inside. Thank you!

What happens next in Leave No Scar? Please tell me the world doesn't end in a nuclear explosion because Clark marries Lois.

No, no nuclear explosion. Just -- some resignation and killing of dreams. I mean, I like to think that Clark and Lois are happy, because Lois is *good* for him, and she's a really neat lady and she *loves him* but the thing is that Clark is clearly always going to love Lex. I think with Lois it's always going to be about safety and dependence. I had this vague idea a while back about writing a sequel to Leave No Scar in which Lois dies and Lex kind of -- creeps back into Clark's life, and this time he's the one trying to (sort of) heal the breach. It's all fuzzy to me now, because I haven't thought of it in so long, but I vividly remember that the last scene of it was going to be after the two of them had *finally* ended up in bed together (which would mainly be Clark's doing, because Lex would be all "You're my favorite toy, and I don't want you broken by heartache or nothin'") they'd be all post-coital and Lex would say to him, "I've never seriously tried to kill you before, but if you leave me now, you have to know that I will do everything in my power to destroy you." and Clark just kind of nodding and being like I'm okay with that. But the thing is -- I don't want to kill Lois. And I don't think that the gap here can be bridged; Lex and Clark have burned what lies between them, or rather, Lex has burned it, and sewn Clark with salt. Clark's going to learn to live with Lois, he'll be happy, but there'll always be this sense that he did Lex wrong. He'll apply all the lessons he learned in How Not to Be An Asshole from Lex to making his relationship with Lois viable. It's kind of a little death (not in a good way) but also essentially a happy(ish?) ending for Clark. Lex on the other hand just becomes all the more rapier sharp and bitter, and you know. Alone.

SO.....no explosions? That's good, right? *makes face*
