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...

Crazy...

The OC/Tin Man crossover... Ryan/DG pairing...

Just the mental image of Ryan in The O.Z. makes me grin...

Hell... I'd proibably simply callt he universe 'The OZ' to take advantage of that humor... :D



In other news... I'm browsing DeviantArt to find interesting arts to inspire me... lol... There's some amazing ones, but they inspire original stuff, not anything you guys might really wanna read...

Tough, though. I may post some original stuff sometime soon. Read if you want, don't if you don't. Up to you.

Hmmm...

Last year I posted about how the muses ran away from home and I had this method for getting them back that involved putting together a random list of actors and actresses and creating a cast list for a show using them... You guys rocked and gave me TONS (like 40 or so) and the method worked, my muses came back!

I think the reason this seems to work for me is that there's no pressure to have anyone be 'in character' while in a crazy situation... they're original characters, so they can act however the damn hell I want them to act... lol

Anyway, I'm trying again... I've written a few things lately, but... nothing I really liked... I'm stuck on everything and I need to get my creative juices flowing...

SO! Give me the names of some actors and actresses!

Also? While I don't want specifics, if there's a kinda storyline you'd like to see them used for (serial killer on the lose, disaster strikes, car accident, medical problems, mental illness, bad guy, etc) include it next to their names and I will try to accomadate...

Thanks in advance!

I am REALLY looking forward to the new 90210...

Specifically, I'm looking forward to Kelly Taylor and her son Sammy.

See, a while back I asked for people to give me a list of fictional women they'd like to see Ryan Atwood paired with (though I didn't promise I'd write any of the provided pairings), and Kelly was one of them. But I totally forgot about it until recently when I started hearing more and more about the new 90210...

So, I have this fic idea pecking at my brain... Especially after one of the spoilers revealed by TV Guide is actually kinda exactly like one part of my idea (I'm not gonna talk about that part so I don't spoiler anything for the people who may not wanna know) ... my idea involves Ryan working at West Beverly as a science teacher. Erin Silver, Kelly's little half sister, is in Ryan's class and she thinks "Huh... this guy is perfect for my sister..." so she tries to set them up. And Ryan and Kelly like eachother, and Kelly's son Sammy likes Ryan, and Ryan is embarassed when it's revealed that he was the inspiration for 'Kid Chino' in Atomic County... lol...

But I don't wanna write it until I see more abotu how Kelly has changed in the in between times, and how she interacts with her son, and what she and Brenda's relationship is like now... stuff like that.

So, in summary, I am excited for 90210... I wanna write Ryan/Kelly.



In other news? I did the books at work today, and it was still a pain in the ass, but I managed to cut one hour and 24 minutes off how long it took me on Monday... lol... I was there until 5:32 on Monday, today I was done by 4:08. There were less problems with the register, though, and I think the fact that I had some music going in the background cut down on my stress a bit so I made less mistakes.

Anyway, here's hoping I can keep being done before 5 on days I gotta do the books (Mondays, Wedsdays, and every other Friday) so that Mama doesn't have to either wait around for me after she gets off work or drive back. Since it'll start getting dark at 5 in a couple weeks/months, she wouldn't want me walking home, plus bad weather is common in the evenings around here.

Ahem... lol

So, today we got totally fed up with Hastings, the local video rental place. Once again, they hadf put movies that we had returned back on the shelf without checking them in. So we weren't going to get the credit for returning the next day WHICH WE DID, instead, if we hadn't gotten movies today, we would have been told we owed late fees.

So, we're giving up on Hastings and going back to Netflix. Which has a much huger selection to choice from, especially when it comes to TV on DVD.

And I'm looking and what do I find? Season 1 of the Showtime show 'Huff' which stars Hank Azaria (The Birdcage, Godzilla, Etc), Paget Brewster (Criminal Minds,Friends), Anton Yelchin (The New Star Trek movie, Charlie Bartlett), and Bylthe Danner (Will & Grace, Meet The Parents/Meet The Fockers, Etc).
The Netflix Summary:
After a troubled teenage patient commits suicide in front of him during a session, psychiatrist Craig 'Huff' Huffstodt (Azaria) is forced to reexamine his own existence even as he continues to help others cope with the harshness of life in this Showtime series. Can he succeed with his family -- son Byrd (Yelchin), brother Teddy (Andy Comeau), mother Izzy (Danner) and wife Beth (Brewster) -- by his side? Or in spite of them?

I've seen some episodes from the middle of the season, and LOVED them (Lara Flynn Boyle is amazing a patient who's a wee bit obsessed with Huff), so I'm happy to see it from the beginning...

Anyway, my brain suddenly kicked into gear, making me suddenly think: What if Ryan had to go to a shrink and it was Huff that the Cohens chose? Which then led to: What if the Huffstodts were Ryan's foster family instead of the Cohens?

I can see Ryan and Byrd get along (ironically, Byrd does had dark curly hair, but basically the simularities end there... Byrd actually notices that other people matter as much or more than he does... lol), and Ryan would win Beth over in a heartbeat, and I can see him both stickign up to Izzy about her mistreatment of Beth and at the same time winning over Izzy because he's a good kid... and god, if I went so far as to include Crazy Melody (Lara Flynn Boyle) and her antics, there could be plenty of drama...

So, I think after I've seen some eps of Huff again, I may just start writing this... because I think it could work... even fi, to most people, the Huffstodts might as well be original charatcers... but I guess then it'll be mroe forgivable if I get them slightly out of character... lol

Does anyone know the show? it lasted 2 seasons on Showtime, very funny but had it's moments of drama and tension...

All of a sudden, a sentence popped into my head...

At 3:15am, Ryan Atwood died from a sel inflicted gunshot wound.

The idea is poking me repeatedly with a sharp stick, wanting me to give it life and explain it... but gah... lol... even ignoring the fact that I don't wanna kill Ryan (again... lol) I can't work my head around it... why would Ryan kill himself? Where did he get the gun? Did he actualy kill himself, or was it staged to look that way?

If I could figure out the rest, I think I could get around the whole "don't wanna kill Ryan" thing by having it be that his heart stopped at 3:5am, meaning that technically he was dead, but like doctors got it started again...
Anyway, just rambling... lol...



Writing Proress: 9151 words

So, I'm still a bit behind, but... I can catch up.... lol
missmara13: (Default)
So, the other night (same night I came up with the plot for 'These Walls') I was thinking on ideas for AU stories and came up with this list... the 'titles' behind the cut aren't actually titles, just things to identify them for the poll after the descriptions...

I'm not saying I'll ever actually write any of these, just that the ideas for them are there and I kinda want to write them... )

Remember my request last night for lists of random actors and actresses to form a random cast of characters as a way to break my writer's block and get the creative juices flowing? It worked! I've actually got some stuff in the works for The OC (I'm about half done with the next in the 'Snapshots Series', probablky gonna poist it later tonight...)

Anyway, I created a cast with all the people suggested so far (And I mean ALL the people! It's one hell of a big cast! lol... especially when you also add in the like 4 or 5 people of my own choosing to fill a couple of roles... lol) and I uploaded it in case anyone wants to see what I came up with... Part of me actually wants to write this... lol

The Cast of Wild World.

And if anyone wants to add more suggestions (Because hell, the cast is already huge, it's not gonna kill me to add more people... lol... I might even expand the families a bit if more suggestions come in and fit with the already created familes)... here's the request post: Random Cast Request post
missmara13: (Default)
I'm at that point of doing what I sometimes do when I get stuck... I randomly select a group (about 10 to 20) of actors and actresses, different age groups (I usually have at least 2 or 3 adults, mostly teens, a couple of younger kids) and I get pictures of them, create a new folde rin my 'Webseries Ideas' folder, and create a story around them...

Who are these people?
How do they know (or not know) eachother?
Where do they live?
Are they all rich, all poor, some of each?
Do they have happy lives or unhappy lives, some in each category?

Anyway, I'm posting this because I'm incredibly bored, trying to get the creative juices flowing so I can actually write something (Preferably fics that you guys give a damn about... lol), so...

Anyone wanna give me a list of a couple actors and actresses? Depending on how many people respond, I'll either use whole lists from people, or just like one or two suggestions from each person... I'll actually create a little character guide to who the characters are, maybe even have some fun with it and create some art...

The only real restriction is I want to be able to find more than one or two pics of the person, I need to have a good selection of pics to look at... oh! And if you have a specific pic of them that you want me to use as the basis for creating their character, feel free to link me to it...

As a little aside, at the moment I'm leaning towards southern Florida (Possibly Miami, but maybe a fictional city) as the location...

Anyway... yeah, I know, I turn to you guys for weird stuff all the time... but I'm weird, too, sooo... yeah, you totally should not be shocked... lol...

Wow...

I'm like... totally stunned... I made a request on a music community for any 40's music (to use as inspiration for my World War II AU) people had, expecting to maybe get one or two songs, but it turns out it wasn't such an obscure request because people have provided a LOT of stuff! Some of it's from a bit later (50's and 60's) but a LOT is from 1945 and earlier, which is perfect... I've been researching and putting the year of the song into the file name so that I can make sure I don't specifically mention a song that wouldn't have been in existance yet... lol...

I'm planning on making at least one, maybe 2 soundtracks for the fic... Like I'm thinking a 2 disc set, with seperate covers for each disc... Disc 1 will be World War II era songs (some of them covered by more recent artists, but... lol...) with art of real life pictures/propaganda posters/etc on the cover... Disc 2 will be more modern songs that fit the feel of the story...

Anyway... I'm totally in love with this fic idea... lol... World War II Ryan/Summer rocks! lol
missmara13: (Muse)
Anyone remember, a LONG time ago (I can't find the post, but I KNOW it happened! lol), when I mentioned the possibility of a World War II AU for The OC? Well, I'm actually gonna write it!

My plan is that the story will actually cover from about 1941 (beginning on the evening of December 6th) and going until after the end of the war around 1945. Ryan and Summer are the main characters, and it follows their story... Ryan is in the Army and is stationed first in Europe and later in the Pacific, Summer is an Army Nurse who first meets Ryan when he's minorly injured.

I will warn that Ryan begins the story (well... by the end of the first prologue/first chapter) engaged to marry Marissa, but trust me, that won't last. No way is she gonna wait years while Ryan is away... lol

I'm gathering mp3s of songs from that era to use to keep inspired, and... I'm already kind of in love with this AU... lol...

Why me?

Why must I have friends that decide to make sure I get introduced to a pairing that they KNOW I'm gonna like and will end up writing?

lol...

Bri's trying to convince me to write some Jess (Gilmore Girls)/Summer (The OC) fic... and damn it I so want to... lol

The way my mind is currently working, it's gonna be another 3-way crossover - The OC/Gilmore Girls/One Tree Hill (Jess/Summer and Ryan/Brooke pairings)... lol...

Damn Bri... lol... ;)

Now I just gotta find a firm plotbunny, not just the tiny little inkling of an idea I currently have...
missmara13: (Default)
Also watch 'Criminal Minds'? While watching the season finale tonight, I started perculating on an idea for a The OC/Criminal Minds crossover...

Actually, I was originally tempted to bring them CM team into Empty Spaces and involve them with finding Ryan, but I decided against it... lol...

Anyway, my new idea is a Season 1 (The OC) and Season 2 (CM) crossover (Yes, that does mean messing up timelines, but I prefer Prentiss to Elle)... It involves Ryan getting forcibly taken from the Cohen house, and he's just the latest in stream of Newport teens to get kidnapped, ransomed... the thing is, the kids are never returned afterwards... so the BAU gets called in to profile the UnSub... The story would alternate between the BAU team (and the Cohens with them), and Ryan being held captive...

I'm just wondering if anyone would be interested in reading it, and if so, how many people would need me to do a little 'Intro to CM' entry to give the jist? lol

I'm just somewhat stagnated on my already in progress fics, I lost a lot of stuff in the computer crash, and I keep trying to make myself remember what I had written for my fics, and then my brain gets locked up on that and it's like a car engine... first it stalls, then while trying to start it again, it gets flooded with too much gas, my brain just won't start because I'm trying too hard... I'm thinking maybe something new will help me jump start and get past the stressing...

Later...
