Hmmm... thoughts on the The OC & Nip/Tuck Crossover Idea...  
I was looking at some older Nip/Tuck clips on Youtube, and was reminded of the fact that Christian has admitted to having been sexually abused a a child by his foster father. I had totally forgotten about that, but it further adds to why, in my story, Christian would suddenly decide that he wants to protect Ryan... Sandy's not an abuser, of course, no matter how pissed Christian is at Sandy for letting Ryan get hurt, he doesn't think for even a minute that Sandy intended it to happen... he does however see it as a foster parent, someone who should have been protecting Ryan, letting Ryan down, and that does hit just a little too close to home and sets off his protective streak...

I'm thinking that the story takes place in Early/mid Season 5 of Nip/Tuck, shortly after Christian and Sean have moved their practice to LA. So basically all events of Season 5 are up for grabs to be adjusted to fit Ryan into the equation... I'd love to play with Ryan's reaction to Christian being injured in the car crash caused by the Paparazzi wanting pictures of Annie...

And god... I have this wild idea that if I made the fic long enough... do something with having The Carver turn up because, hey, still out there! Maybe they're pissed that Christian and Sean are now becoming famous in LA for their work... and when the threats start coming in, Christian gets worried for both Ryan and Wilber that they might be targetted by The Carver to hurt him, but he doesn't want them to have any idea that something is wrong, and of coruse Ryan is pissed when he finds out Christian has been hiding this from him, because while, yeah, Wilber is too young to know about this, Ryan ISN'T too young and he thinks he had a right to know...

And of course it would be interesting to play with the development for Christian in the "Season 5 Part II" Premiere (I'm not gonna spoil it just in case anyone, like me, hasn't seen it... I'm watching it right now on the website because I kept missing it... lol) with Ryan around and how he reacts to it...

Anyway, some random thoughts, nothing all that spoiler-y for the fic since nothing is definite for the fic... lol... for those who know the show, anything in particular from Season 5 (either the first half of the season of the two most recent eps) that you'd love to see me twist around a bit for this fic?

Spoilers For Season 5 May Be In Comments You've been warned.

I really can't wait to read about this !! But I think I'll now need to watch Nip/Tuck lol. Because/Thanks to your fic, I already began to watch Brothers and Sisters lol.

But, is Christian married?? Because Wilber seem to be his child right ??

Okay, the deal with Wilber... Christian was involved with this woman, Gina (who was actually kidna psychotic herself... lol), and she got pregnant. She told him the baby was his, and he actually got to like the idea. Then, Wilber was born. And he was black. Now, since Gina and Christian are both white, that's sort of not possible. it turned out that Gina was messing around with someone else, but Christian still loved Wilber and wanted to be his dad (even though he didn't want to be with Gina). He actually raised Wilber for a while, until Wilber's biological father came intot he picture and got custody. When whent he bio dad died, Christian ended up getting Wilber back, and he really does love the little boy as much as he possibly could.

A clearer version of the whole deal can be found ont eh Wikipedia page for Gina. Just look under the sectin about Wilber and it explains it all a bit clear and with a bit more detail.

And now, Christian isn't married, he never quite made it that far, though he's been engaged twice during the show. The first time, his fiancee, Kimber, was kidnapped on their wedding day by a badguy known as 'The Carver' (because he'd slace up 'beautiful' people's faces) and tortured. They had been on adn off before that, but it was sort of the final straw in their messed up relationship. The second fiancee was Michelle, but he found out that she was an accomplice in an organ summgling ring, and he left her.

Really, Wikipedia has pretty accurate information (at least compared to my memory) so if you want the background, you can browse the Nip/Tuck pages on Wikipedia.

This sounds better and better the more you ponder aloud. lol. Again, as with the Brothers and Sisters crossover, I don't watch the crossover show but have some idea of the characters just from commercials I remember seeing. I am very interested in the ideas that are forming in your mind. I look forward to reading it.

Well, I always try to make my crossovers accessible for people who only know one of the fandoms involved, but as I suggested above, the wikipedia Nip/Tuck entries are a pretty good source of information if you want to know the background better.
