I have a fic idea I love and am considering...

Ryan has custody of Frank and Julie's son. Basically, Julie ended up marrying Frank, and when Ryan's little brother (Jake, because I like that as his name... lol) was about six or seven, Ryan found out that Frank was hitting him. Ryan confront Frank and Julie, and Frank got beat the crap out of Ryan, bad enough that Ryan could have gotten Frank tossed in jail for years. Julie still went and bailed Frank out, then begged Ryan to refuse to press charges/co-operate with the police, so that Frank wouldn't go back to prison. Ryan told her that she had a choice: Frank goes to prison and Julie keeps Jake OR Julie and Frank give Ryan custody of Jake and Ryan will refuse to co-operate with charges against Frank (No complainant, almost zero chance of conviction). And Julie f***ing chose Frank. So Ryan got custody and started raising Jake. Jake has No Contact with Frank (One of Ryan's main rules/conditions... especially since Julie divorced Frank a few years after giving Ryan custody), and Limited Contact with Julie, who has had a string of short term marriages to rich men... leading Jake to have 'Gold Digger' by Kanye West as his ringtone for her... Officially Ryan disapproves, but he actually finds it hilarious.

Julie starts trying to get custody back, even though she and Frank signed away their rights to Jake in front of lawyers and a judge, and Julie outright told the Judge that she felt Jake was better off with Ryan than with her and Frank. She doesn't really stand a chance, but she's annoying the hell out of Ryan. Ryan would love to just cut off all contact, but can't bring himself to do so unless Jake asks him to, because he doesn't want to leave Jake without a mom, even if she's a bad one.

I don't really have much beyond that. Ryan and Jake are close, and while Jake doesn't call Ryan 'Dad', he doesn't correct others who refer to Ryan as his Dad. Jake calls Julie 'Mom' when actually with her, but the rest of the time she's called 'Julie'. He's never excited to see her, and in fact the older he gets the less he really wants to see her, but he does because he thinks he should and he thinks Ryan will be disappointed if he stops, though actually Ryan would prefer Jake didn't see Julie, but he doesn't want to deny Jake what he thinks are wanted visits... basically the Atwood Boys don't have very good communication skills... lol...

I'm thinking that Sandy, Kirsten, Kaitlin, Bullit, Seth, and Summer are all Team Ryan in the custody issue... and at some point Trey would show up and Ryan would have a very tense conversation with him about he if he wants to be in Jake's life, he needs to stay clean, sober, and law abiding... not sure if Trey actually succeeds at that...

I'm thinking Brooke would be a good romantic interest for Ryan... although I also kinda wanna meld it with another idea of mine...

Crossover between The OC and The Night Shift (NBC Summer Series about doctors, most of whom are Army Vets, at a hospital in San Antonio, Texas) Ryan Atwood/Dr. Drew Alister (Brendan Fehr) pairing... Drew is my favorite TNS character, and is gay in canon (He married his boyfriend at the end of Season 2, and in Season 3 they became adoptive dads), and I just adore him. In addition to being a Doctor, he's an Army Medic and an MMA (Mixed Martial Arts) fighter. He's all around awesome.

As much as I love Rick (Drew's boyfriend/husband) I love the idea of a Ryan/Drew pairing... and I sorta have an idea how the above Ryan and Jake story could combine with a Ryan/Drew pairing... (for the sake of this idea, there is no Rick, and no Brianna, Drew and Rick's adoptive daughter)

So, Julie is harassing Ryan and Jake trying to get my contact, get unsupervised visits, talking about trying to get custody back. Bullit, being Team Ryan, offers to help Ryan relocate himself and Jake anywhere they want to get away from it (since Julie signed away her rights, she has no legal claim to Jake and can't interfere with them moving. Ryan lets her have contact, he doesn't have to). During this, Ryan gets a call from Drew, who he had been somewhat dating for a little while around the time he got custody of Jake. Ryan is Bisexual, but wasn't out about that, and Drew was very much in the closet (as far as anyone else knew, they were good friends and that's it), so they ended up breaking up, and no one ever knew they were a couple, they just thought the two were friends... I could potentially have it AU that in his grief over Marissa, instead of the cage fighting, Ryan enlisted and that's how he and Drew met, and Ryan left the Army when he got custody of Jake... anyway, Drew calls him and they talk, Drew finds out about the crap Julie's pulling and suggests that maybe Ryan and Jake could at least come on vacation to San Antonio, they could hang out. Drew is still closeted, but over the course of the story he would come out and he and Ryan would get back together as an actual, official, couple...

I don't know, I kinda wanna do it... lol... I'll defintiely write the Ryan and Jake part of it, it's the Ryan/Drew pairing part I'm iffy on... but I am rewatching the first two seasons of TNS on Netflix so I can get a beter grasp on Drew's character... lol...
