So... I may sorta be... writing again?  
I've almost complete part 7 of 'Good Enough' (The OC/Brothers & Sisters crossover, Ryan Atwood is the Walker half sibling. Sandy told Ryan the Walkers wanted nothing to do with him, but really they want to know him and Ryan is kind of enjoying have a big loud loving family that accepts him, screwups or no)...

I've been marathoning B&S (A couple eps into season 2 now) so I'm feeling even more confident in my characterization of them. But now I'm doubting my characterizatiuon of Ryan in GE7 because it's been YEARS since I watched even a single ep of The OC... then I discovered that The OC is streaming on Hulu, so... guess what I'm watching? lol

I forgot so many little details from the pilot... like just how devastated Ryan looked when Seth outed him as being from Chino... and how much of a complete ass Luke was to both Ryan and Seth... and omg!

I had been starting to doubt myself about Ryan being snarky, but he totally was! At least in the pilot... I mean his comment about not wanting to tie himself down career wise since he'll have to work until he's like 80 because of Social Security running out was pure snark and mocking... and his 'less trouble where I'm from' comment to Marissa at the after party... and the look on his face when Seth said he'd never even talked to the girl he named his boat after and planned to take to Tahiti like he was thinking "Shit... I'm on a boat with psycho planning to kidnap some poor girl and take her to the south pacific... and no one but his parents know I'm even here... shit." He was looking around like he was wondering if he could swim back to shore! lol

I think everyone focuses so much on Badass Ryan, and Emotionally Fragile Ryan, they forget Snarky Ryan. And I love Snarky Ryan. He can be all those things at once, but Snarky is my favorite.

Anyway, yeah. I've been writing. And since I'm watching The OC again, I may be writing more. Especially when I get to 'The Truth' because you guys know how much I love my The Truth AUs... lol...

I love Snarky Ryan. He's a smart kid - he's got a smart mouth to go with. And more writing is more better.

Yay so excited you are updating. I love your stories and feel like you have done some of the best crossover fiction I have ever read. I try to check in on the site to see if there was an update or just to read one of your old stories. The b&s is one of my favorites. I think that ryan is a great addition to the crazy walker clan. I also love the ryan / chuck bass story where ryan is lily and rufus baby they gave up. Also the ryan and brooke anything lol especially the criminal minds crossover. Thank you for the update and I cant wait to read more from you
