This Steph Thing

Since this Smallville thing happened, I keep reading how mean dc is to make Bryan choose Babs for the book to replace Steph.

A bunch of people decide I must have made it happen even though I only found out about when you did.

Today, Bryan told me it was his idea to use Babs, when asked to replace Steph. I don’t know where this stuff all comes from but it gets a little frustrating sometimes, separating fact from fiction.

I am not sure why he chose Babs instead of Cass or Helena, but I know the kind of person and writer he is and deliberately upsetting people is not his style at ALL. He loves you guys and wants to do right by you and the characters.

It’s still disappointing about him not being able to use Steph, but if he chose Babs to replace her, I am betting he had an angle he thought would be cool.

Still a shame, but I hope people support Bryan and Smallville, it’s a great book by a brilliant writer.
