REALLY Crazy Crossover Idea...  
The OC/Gossip Girl... no snippets, just rambling about the idea...



You know how Lily and Rufus had a kid that Lily gave up for adoption? Well, what if Dawn Atwood is Lily's sister? And Frank Atwood went to jail right after Dawn got pregnant with ehr second child.

Dawn had a miscarriage, but lied to Frank about it, and she and Lily's mom arranged for Dawn, who had alreayd fallen so far from grace that it didn't matter, to adopt Lily's son and let Frank think the baby was theirs. So Ryan Atwood is actually the son of Lily and Rufus, half brother of Serena, Eric, Dan, and Jenny...

He finds all this out when he's 18 and has a falling out with Dawn over the car accident... Dawn's more upset about the truck being wrecked than Ryan being hurt and Marissa dying in his arms, she says something about him not even being hers, and when he pushes hard enough, she tells him the truth, and he worries about it, but eventually contacts Lily, who never knew that her son was with her estranged sister, she thought Ryan was Dawn's son, not that she saw Ryan much at all because of both the opposite coasts and the whole "Dawn is a tramp who married criminal trash" thing their mother drilled into Lily... and she hasn't seen Ryan AT ALL since he was like 3, so he doesn't remember her at all, but she has tucked away a picture of her sister and her nephews, which she pulls out when Ryan tells her and she stares at it longingly, because Ryan seemed unsure about wanting any contact beyond his call...

But once Ryan makes contact and finds out he has not on or two but 4 half siblings in New York, he winds up going to see them, and he's all awkward about it so he stays with The Nana in the Bronx... but he spends time with all 4 half siblings and while Serena worries him (he can't help comparing her to Marissa, and that scares him because he barely knows her but he doesn't want his sister ending up like his ex), he gets along well with Eric and Jenny especially, but Dan, too...

And of course, as much as he's turned off by the insane spending going on by the rich kids, he spends time with the whole GG teen cast, making friends...

I'm trying to think and can't currently remember how old Lily and Rufus' son should be in canon, but I'd adjust timelines if neccesary so Ryan would only be like 2 years at the most older than Serena and Dan...

And I could have it that Ryan is scared to death of meeting Lily, Rufus, and his siblings, but he decides to just suck it up and impulsively go to New York before he looses his nerve...

It would probably have a side pairing of Chuck/Vanessa because I LOVE C/V (I like Chuck/Blair, too, but I LOVE Chuck/Vanessa!) and I've got this idea that Chuck is cousins with Brooke Davis (One Tree Hill) and she has just moved to New York to do the fashion thing after graduating, and Chuck introduces them... just because Multi-Crossovers rock... lol

And it's crazy, but... I kind alike this idea... lol

I'd read this- happily too!

It'd be interesting to see if everyone accepts Ryan, or they pay more attention to the fact that he's from Chino and lived with "criminal trash" all those years. Do you think you'd have Chuck and Ryan be friends? Would Blair be friendly to her best- frenemy's half brother?

:D

Definitely an idea with a lot of play value.
