Beautiful World (Part Two)  
More of my new universe where Ryan is the son of Lily and Rufus (from 'Gossip Girl') and he and Chuck have a past 'romantic' (in the making out/hot hot sex kinda way) relationship. Chuck's a bit... introspective/thoughtful in this one, but... I think I stayed fairly true to him. Personally, I believe he is a LOT deeper and more caring than he presents himself as being.

Ummm... timeline wise...

Ryan is about a year older than Serena and Dan and the rest of the older group of GG teens. He met Chuck during the summer following Marissa shooting Trey, when things were all f*ed up, which would be the summer before GG started. This story is starting the fall/winter after Season 4 of the OC (which went differently in this universe...) and during the current season of Gossip Girl. I'll try to clear up timeline issues in story sometime soon, but right now... I'm kinda having too much fun exploring the idea of Chuck/Ryan... lol

Beautiful World - Part Two

Chuck was torn, which was actually a new experience for him. He loved Blair, and they were finally in a real relationship, stable and honest. He'd forgiven her for manipulating him, and she'd let go of his past indiscretions with whatever woman had been nearby. But the moment he had seen Ryan at the party, he'd known they'd wind up in some dark corner, or in one of the empty rooms at the hotel, and it had been exhilirating to even think about, let alone when he actually had found Ryan alone.

Chuck considered himself to be straight, and most of the time it was women he was attracted to. Ryan had been the exception, though, and he knew from conversations they'd had that he was Ryan's exception to the rule. He was actually rather fond of Ryan's way of describing it.

"I'm not attracted to women or men, Chuck, I'm attracted to people. And as much of an asshole as you are... there's a human being underneath. And that's who I'm attracted to."

Ryan had actually been the first person who'd seen him as more than just Chuck Bass, the Upper East Side asshole playboy. Even Blair believed firmly in that persona and didn't see past it most of the time, but Ryan had seen right through him early on, called him on his bullshit, and then they'd had some really good sex. Followed, of course, by Chuck telling Ryan to grow a pair when it came to sluts like Marissa Cooper who liked to treat him like he was their fucking lap dog.

And now... now Ryan was in New York, and was the son of Lily and Rufus, was the brother of his... not exactly friends, but somewhat family... and was still as irrestible as he had been nearly three years earlier in Newport. It complicated everything, but frankly, Chuck wouldn't have it any other way because he'd felt that same charge, some thrill, same complete and utter attraction, when he'd first touched Ryan in the bathroom as he had before.

Of course, everything he had in mind for the evening had changed when he'd slid his hands up Ryan's spine and felt the fresh ridges of scar tissue there. He'd pulled back from the kiss, surprised, and Ryan had sighed softly, resigned.

"I was in an accident right after graduation," he whispered. "Crashed my truck."

"You were hurt," Chuck said, pulling back enough to make Ryan turn, and pulling off first the jacket, then pulling up the shirt to see the scars. "Badly."

"Emergency surgery to relieve the pressure on my spinal cord," Ryan said. "I found out I wasn't an Atwood when Dawn showed up at the hospital to yell about how she and Frank never should have adopted me, all I ever did was cause her trouble."

"She's a bitch," Chuck said, his fingers moving across the scars. "Are you alright?"

"Still hurts sometimes," Ryan admitted. "But it's better than it was."

"There's another door out of here," Chuck said. "And it is my hotel."


"It's been too long."

"We shouldn't even do this," Ryan said, turning back to face him. "I don't wanna be 'that guy'."

"You're not," Chuck said. "I am, and Blair knows I am, but you're not."


"To talk," Chuck offered, his tone changed. "I want to know what happened. The full story, not this half story you just spun."

"It's complicated."

"Marissa was involved," Chuck guessed.

"Somewhat," Ryan admitted. His phone rang and he pulled it out, looking at the display before answering. "Hey, Lily," he said. "No, I just... it was a little much, so I found somewhere to hide out. Yeah, I'll meet you guys at the door in a few minutes. Okay, yeah. Bye." He hung up. "Gotta go."

"You know my number."

"What, you think I memorized it?" Ryan said, straightening his clothes again.

"Yes," Chuck replied with a smirk. "And I'm sure it's prgrammed into that, too," he added, gesturing at the cellphone.

"No one could ever accuse you of lacking self confidence," Ryan said, though he had done that exact thing three years earlier.

"I want to see you again, hear the whole story, soon."

"I'll call," Ryan promised.

Chuck pulled Ryan into another kiss, softer than before. "Dawn's a bitch, just as much as Marissa," he said.

Ryan sighed, shaking his head in amusement. "You're a bigger bitch than both of them combined," he said.

"Bitch must be your type," Chuck replied.

"No, Chuck," Ryan said. "I'm attracted to that human being you hide underneath the bitch."

"If you believe there is one, you're delusional."

"And if you believe there isn't, you are," Ryan replied. "I'll call," he repeated.

"Don't make me come to you," Chuck said.

"Again?" Ryan asked, letting a smirk of his own show. "Because I seem to remember you showing up at the poolhouse a few times."

"That, Ryan, was a booty call," Chuck said with a smirk as he straightened his clothes and walked out, leaving a chuckling Ryan behind.

To Be Continued...

And the plot thickens while also revealing a few tidbits... lol... Yes, Ryan will explain what precisely happened in this universe (it's a bit different from the crash on the show)... I like Chuck being protective, but still slipping right back into his cocky attitude at the drop of a hat... lol

It's gonna be kinda... explosive... when it comes out that Chuck and Ryan have a 'romantic' history... I haven't decided exactly how it goes down, yet, but... it will get found out... it won't be so much about Ryan having a past with a guy, but that the guy is CHUCK that causes the issue... and Blair might take it well or she might go kind of ballistic... depends on whether I decide to go more for Ryan-Chuck friendship or Ryan/Chuck relationship.

And now I am off to work on my 'Good Enough' (The OC/Brothers & Sisters)
