24 Gifts Of 2010 - Day Fifteen - Meet You At The Bar (Ryan/Brooke Manip)  
So, the fic I planned on having for tonight's gift fell through. Instead, you get a Ryan/Brooke manip!

I like how there are a ton of people behind Brooke, but you can tell she's feeling all alone. And even though Ryan is completely alone, he looks comfortable and confident. Oh, I can see a story here!

Well, I kinda made it with a specific quote from One Tree Hill, even though it was said by one of my least favorite characters, I love the quote!

"At this moment there are 6,470,818,671 people in the world. Some are running scared. Some are coming home. Some tell lies to make it through the day. Others are just now facing the truth. Some are evil men, at war with good. And some are good, struggling with evil. Six billion people in the world. Six billion souls. And sometimes -- all you need is one."
Peyton Sawyer (Hilarie Burton); 3.01 - Like You Like An Arsonist

For the sake of the graphic, and my R/B fics, Ryan is that one person that Brooke needs, and it doesn't matter how many other people are around her, if she doesn't have him there, it's just not right. And of course the opposite is true as well, but it's harder to find pics of Ryan in a crowd and Brooke all alone that would blend even halfway well together...lol

I've probably said it before, but I've never actually watched OTH, except maybe once a long time ago. But you've brought these characters to life for me through relating them to Ryan, so it will be fun someday if I can catch some reruns or borrow/rent a box set. I like the quote, and the manip really works despite being from two obviously different photos. They only see each other....

PS: I like how she calls him 'Hot Boy'- that something she does on OTH? *hee*

Well, she has a habit of giving people nicknames... she used to call Lucas (her original love interest, though he treated her kinda crappy half the time) 'Boyfriend', and she has called her friend Haley 'Tutor Girl' and 'Tutor Wife' at different points... so she does give nicknames, and I just figured 'Hot Boy' would certainly apply to Ryan, so... why not have her call him that? lol...

Also, I got distracted explaining the nickname thing, but I still plan on doing a Brooke/OTH primer some day for the sake of people who haven't seen it... I should do that soon, because Brooke in canon is total awesome... the girl is literally ready to die for the people she loves...
