Looking through old fic files...  
And I started thinking about how I could have gone in different directions than I did. Not neccesarily better directions, just different.

So, if anyone's interested, pick one of my stories (longer ones will work best, but I can try with oneshots) and then pick a scene for me to change the direction of, and then I'll tell you how everything else might have played out thanks to that one scene being different. You don't neccesarily have to give me a specific change you'd like to see, and in fact I'd appreciate it if you didn't because then it's not so much what *I* would ahve done but if i had fallen to someone else's whim... lol

HOWEVER, if there's a specific change you'd really like to see (Like Zach not being caught conspiring with Volchak at the Orange Orchard in 'With A Whimper', or Ryan getting shot in Summer's bedroom in 'Surrender'), mention it and I may run with it... or I may not... like I said, this is a 'on my whim' kinda thing... lol

Anyway, I'm kinda thinking it could be fun for some fics to go back and branch off from certain points and write how it could have gone... most of the picks will probably just get summaries of the alternate version, but... if something really grabs me, you may be looking at a whole fic branching off from that change...

How about: Defining Love part 2

starting at:"So, this is your place?" Ryan asked as Alex led him into her small apartment

An alternate version (Which I'm tempted to write... lol):

Instead of their talk being about Alex thinking she would be a lousy mother, Alex said she wanted to keep the baby and be a mom. Ryan of course wanted to be a good dad, and he and Alex actually had an arguement similiar to the one in the original version, about Ryan's crappy backroom apartment and the cage fighting. When they stopped arguing enough to me reasonable, Alex suggested Ryan come work at the Diablo, which offers good money without cage fightintg, and Ryan took her up on it, moving to LA.

Because of tensions with the Cohens, he basically cut off contact with them after the move, but he didn't wallow in his depression and anger because he wanted to be a good dad to the baby and he wanted to be supportive of Alex. Neither of them expected to have real feelings develop between them, beyond just really liking the sex, but it happened and they moved in together when Alex was 7 months pregnant and still working at the Diablo, with regulars completely doting on her. Between her feelings for Ryan and the pregnancy, Alex softens slightly, embracing her inner girly-girl on occasion with a couple of maternity clothes, but mostly wearing Ryan's clothes when she gets too big for her normal stuff. And Ryan finds it exasperating when he can't find something of his, because he knows she has yet again borrowed something without asking...

:) Like the alternate version?

Love the alternate version. You should write it! :)

I like the details about Alex wearing Ryan's clothes.
