Welcome to 'The Cat's Out of the Bag' eZine. As the title
(hopefully) suggests, this all sprung from the idea to have a
fiction challenge where Smallville's intrepid reporter, Chloe
Sullivan, found out that Clark Kent is a big, super- powered alien.
Well of course, Paperbkryter and Regina promptly talked me not
into doing just another fiction challenge but a full-blown eZine
with fiction, art, and any other miscellaneous ideas we could
possibly come up with in the two month time frame.
Thus the "Chloe Knows" Project was born.
Two months have come and gone, and now it's time to open-up
this little project for business. Of course, if it weren't
for some key people it would of never even gotten off the ground.
- Thank you to the group of authors (Maveness,
SullivanLane, Amy, Medie, Hope, Regina, JollyCynic, Huffy the
Campfire Slayer, Wiccid Sister and Tara O'Shea ) who contributed wonderful fiction and supported this little project
even when I got nervous about it.
- Also thanks to the artists (Lightstar Angel, Tigress35,
mmac80, and also, Medie,
Hope, Tara, and Regina again) who added their mad-artist skills
to this and provided some of the most beautiful fan art ever.
- A special thank you to Paper for pushing me to do this and
getting the ball rolling on the whole project.
- An extra special thank you to JollyCynic who helped me out
with guestbooks because he knows code so much better than I and
helped out when we got down to the wire, and
constantly pushing me to finish and launch on time despite my want
- An incredibly extra special thank you to my partner in crime, Regina,
who not only talked me in to it, provided art work, helped with
the coding, and read
through my attempts at fiction, but also came up with this entire
gorgeous layout when I was struggling. If it weren't
for her, I'm sure this would of all folded upon itself long ago.
- And of course, to all my friends who (tried) to keep me sane
about this eZine for the past two months while waiting and hoping
that I could bring this project to fruition. You guys just
So, now that credit has been given accordingly, I again welcome
you to 'The Cat's Out of the Bag' eZine; I hope you enjoy what
we've done as much as we've enjoyed bringing it to you.
