The OC Fic Meme!  
Meme post has been topped so that it'll stay right there at the top of my journal and easy to find.

I got several positive responses, so I'm gonna go ahead and start the meme.

It's a simple concept. People post story prompts. other people fill them in replies. Since there's no 'claiming', and multiple fills are encouraged, there's no pressure to fill it. You can, of course, say 'I'm gonna fill this one!', but you don't have to say anything before you actually post the fill.

There's only two major rules here, though I may add more if issues come up (though in general The OC Fandom is mostly awesome in my experience so I don't expect too many issues)

1. Be respectful of other people. If you don't like a prompt or a pairing for the prompt, scroll past it. No telling people their prompt sucks, no arguing that 'so-and-so wouldn't do that', because hey! These memes are made for AUs! Also, no out and out character bashing. You may think a character is a horrible excuse for a human being who needs to die, but someone else may love them. So try to couch things as opinions. For example, "Marissa is a raging bitch who needs for everyone to tell her how horrible of a human being she is and hate her and beat her to death!" is BAD. But "I think Marissa was a pretty lousy friend and girlfriend, so how about having someone give her a verbal and/or physical smackdown about some of what she said and did?" is GOOD. Got it?

2. WARN FOR TRIGGERS! Rape, abuse, suicidal thoughts/actions, eating disorders, etc... if you think it could majorly upset someone, then list them in the subject line for your comment. If I see a prompt with major triggers that doesn't warn, I will screen and/or delete it and if possible tell the prompter to repost with warnings. If I can't get in touch with them (for example if they prompted anonymously) I will repost with the warnings. If triggers confuse you, take a look here, it seems to give a pretty good idea of what triggers are and why they NEED to be warned for. Obviously some people have unusual triggers, so you can't warn for everything, but if it's a common trigger, I expect to see a warning. And so it doesn't become an issue, Slash DOES NOT need to be warned for.

Gen, Het, Slash, Crossovers, AUs, Crack!Fic Prompts... pretty much anything is welcome.

One prompt per comment. Fills go in replies to the comments with 'FILL - Title - Character/Pairings' in the subject line, and any additional warnings either in the fill title or at the top of the fill comment. Simple, right?

The first comment below will be for any questions people have, please post questions in replies to it, NOT as new comment threads. I wanna try to keep things nice and neat.

As we get prompts and fills, I will make an 'index' post that lists filled and unfilled prompts separately, and I'll keep it up to date.

Respond to this thread with Questions/Comments/Concerns ONLY. I wanna keep things neat and that means not having it littered with questions all over the place.

Did you post this to the OC fic journal?

Re: Questions/Comments/Concerns?
Nothing's really been posted there that I can remember recently, but I am lax on keeping up with my LJ.

I am pondering prompts.

Re: Questions/Comments/Concerns?
Yeah, the last post there was on the 14th, so a week ago... but hey, maybe this will encourage people to write more again...

I'm really looking forward to seeing what people come up with, both as prompts and as fills.

Ryan & Sophie Rose - Brother & Sister
Ryan and Sophie Rose, take your inspiration from 'In My Arms' by Plumb. I just want something where they have an awesome brother & Sister relationship.

You can hear the song here in the fanvid I first heard it in. The vid is of one of my other favorite older brother/younger sister duos, Jon Snow and Arya Stark from Game Of Thrones.

Ryan and Seth - TW: Mention of Pre-series Suicide Attempt
Ryan wears the wrist cuff to hid the scar from his suicide attempt when he was 14. Seth sees the scar by accident and freaks out. I'd prefer if only Sandy knew about the past attempt (because it's in Ryan's file) and that Ryan is no longer suicidal.

Future Fic
Grandpa!Sandy breaks his arm trying to surf (he's so old!) and the family comes home to offer support and scold him for being a reckless old man.

Ryan & Summer Friendship - Infidelity
Seth and Summer are married, but Seth cheats on her and she kicks him out of their house and makes it clear within hours of finding out that she intends to take EVERYTHING in the divorce. Seth expects his family to be on his side, and Sandy and Kirsten are certainly supportive of their son, even though they aren't happy with his actions. But Ryan is firmly on Team Summer and doesn't hesitate to say so. I'd prefer Ryan and Summer as friends only, no romance.

"If you're not in the rover in five minutes, I'm going home without you and telling them that you're at a kegger." After saying those words, Ryan walked out of the party. A half hour later, Seth walked out to find the rover sitting, engine on and driver's side door wide open, Ryan's wallet and cellphone sitting on the dash, but no sign of Ryan anywhere. Ryan never made it home that night. He didn't make it home in the following year either.

Up to the filler if Ryan ever turns up, alive or dead, or if everyone else is just left to wonder for the rest of their lives what happened. Bonus points if Caleb is in it and he's NOT a bad guy, especially if he's genuinely concerned.

Sandy, Ryan, Kirsten and Sophie. Future Fic. Possible references to child abuse.
We know that, before Sandy, Ryan had little if no positive male authority figures in his life. We know he was physically abused by his father and his mother's boyfriends throughout most of his childhood. We know he's extremely protective of the people he loves - especially the opposite sex.

I'd like to see a future fic in which Ryan interferes with Sandy disciplining Sophie (it DOES NOT have to be physical discipline)out of fear.

Does Ryan physically get between them? Or does he use other means (like lying)to keep Sophie from under Sandy's radar? Is it a single instance, or an ongoing issue?

I'd very much like to see a conversation between Ryan and Sandy about why Ryan does this.

Her age and the infraction are up to you.

No abusive!Sandy please. This isn't about actually hurting Sophie, but Ryan's need to protect his sister from a potential threat (their father).

Thank you!

How about Ryan introduces Brooke to the Nana for the first time or the Nana comes to stay with Ryan and Brooke (After their married for a while) and Ryan and Brooke live somewhere away from the Cohen family, but still keep in contact.
