I made a Ryan & Luke friendship video!

It's quite possibly the first and only video about them on youtube (I haven't seen any others).

Anyway, to go along with the spirit of the very long and extensive fic I am working on, "That's What Friends Are For," I decided to make a video showing why I love love love Ryan and Luke as friends on the show and why Luke should have stayed! I think one of the biggest mistakes Josh Schwartz made regarding the writing was to write Luke and Anna off the show.

Ben McKenzie and Chris Carmack had awesome chemistry. <3 And please don't hate me for this if you are a huge Ryan & Seth fan (I DO really like Ryan & Seth... honest!), but Ryan & Luke was my favorite friendship on the show and I think the most underrated friendship on the show as well.

Luke proved himself as a good friend to Ryan, especially during the Oliver episodes when Seth didn't have Ryan's back. This tells me that if nobody would have found out Oliver was crazy, then Seth and Marissa (and some others) would still think Ryan was the crazy one and distance themselves from him whereas Luke believed him and had his back the entire time. Plus, I think Ryan and Luke just had more in common than Seth and Ryan: cars, sports, broken families, issues with anger, etc. Their conversations seemed deeper to me and like the friendship could have gone really far. Seth & Ryan for me were always fun to watch and comic relief, but I think Ryan & Luke had the potential to be the deepest friendship on the show.  Ryan opened up to Luke about some aspects of his past that he never even shared with Seth. Anyway, I do really like Seth so I hope nobody thinks I'm bashing!  I just felt like writing a few of my opinions for some reason.  :P

Okay, enough of my big mouth. Enjoy the video!   I used one of my favorite songs.  The lyrics are very meaningful, and I do think they apply very much to the dynamic that Ryan & Luke had and potentially the even deeper dynamic that they could have had if Luke had stayed.

Oh, and you'll see a flashback of Ryan and his dad in the video.  Kevin Sorbo just didn't cut it for me, so I gave Ryan a different (meaner and greasier looking) dad.

And FYI, I do intend to make a Ryan & Seth video... probably over the summer.

That's What Friends Are For, Ch. 2


Fandom: The OC

Title: That's What Friends Are For

Author: Theresa (aka TC or sportsmed14)

Beta: Beachtree! Once again you are amazing! Thank you for all of your help. All mistakes in this chapter are mine and mine alone!

Rating:
PG-13

Disclaimer:
Unfortunately, I do not own the characters, not even the adorable Ryan Atwood/Ben McKenzie.  The OC universe and all of its characters were created by Josh Schwartz and owned by him as well. Don't sue me Josh! I mean it! No copyright infringement intended!

A/N:  Well here is the next chapter to this story!   I apologize for the long wait!    Real life got hectic and I got distracted.  Sorry!   Hopefully the length of this chapter will make up for that though!   This chapter is LONG.   :D

Okay, so I know I said this story was going to 3-4 chapters long, but I have now expanded the plot and so it is actually going to more than likely end up over 12 chapters long.  

As you know, our favorite dirty blonde haired, ocean blue eyed boy is not adjusted to living with the Cohens yet and is scared of getting kicked out and as you know from Ch. 1, in this story, Luke will never leave to Portland.  

This chapter has a lot of Ryan & Luke, some revelations from Ryan about his past, some Ryan & Sandy time, and some Ryan & Seth time. 

In the coming chapters you will learn the severity of Luke's punishment, Sandy will go to Ryan's game, and you will find out exactly what is wrong with Ryan!  

Please read the NEW summary to this story.  

Summary:
After Luke's dad goes public with his homosexuality, Luke's life takes a turn for the worse- everything spiraling out of control. Unable to deal with his problems, he turns to alcohol as a means to cope. Ryan is there for him during his darkest hour.  Meanwhile, a serious illness threatens to rob Ryan of the new life he is trying to build with the Cohens.  

Enjoy you guys!   And if you feel compelled to do so, I always appreciate reading reviews!  :)   After all, feedback helps me improve my writing, which works in the favor of you guys who read it!   :D   Thanks!

So I made a new Ryan video!   :D  

This video is very simple and to the point.  It's my shortest video, and it only took me a few hours to make, but I love how it turned out.   It's basically a deeper look at Ryan's issues with abandonment.  It features Lindsay, Sadie, Theresa, Dawn, and Trey (all people who left his life).

The song is "Yesterday" by the Beatles. 

Enjoy guys, and just for a heads up, my fics will all be updated very soon!   I'm so sorry I've been MIA lately, but I'll try not to let that happen as much!

Thank you to all the amazing flisters who support my videos and stories!   I can't tell you how thankful I am for that, and I'm also very happy that our favorite character, Ryan, still is getting so much love after all these years.   :D

HAPPY NEW YEAR! :D

A/N: I promise you guys I will get another chapter up for my fic "Every Second Counts." Some things in life weren't going so well and I hadn't liked what I originally wrote for the second chapter so I wanted to redo it, but when I do, I'll post as soon as I can!

In the mean time, here is another story I've started that will be about 3 or 4 chapters long. It is set sometime during S1 in the spring time. Assume that the whole Oliver thing never happened, and Ryan is not dating anyone, but rather is just focusing on school.

He's still not adjusted to living with the Cohens and is scared of getting kicked out. Also assume that Luke never leaves Portland.

Summary:
After Luke's dad goes public with his homosexuality, Luke's life takes a turn for the worse- everything spiraling out of control. Unable to deal with his problems, he turns to alcohol as a means to cope. Ryan is there for him during his darkest hour.

Enjoy you guys, and if you feel compelled to do so, I always appreciate reading reviews! :)

Here is a preview to my latest video!  

Sorry that I haven't updated the Ryan/Lindsay fic yet!    My boss's wife was very sick, and I had to work extra shifts this week so I didn't get much time to write.   I had Ch. 2 mostly written already, but I decided that I didn't like it so I'm re-writing it.   Next weekend I'll try to post Ch. 2 though.   Thanks so much for everyone who reviewed, and I hope holiday preparations are going well for you guys!

In the mean time, I've started another Ryan video!

So far it's very full of angst!   lol.   Just how we love Ryan right?   So this video will be somewhat like a fanfiction story so it's a little AU because I'm not following canon 100%. 

Anyway, the next part of the video turns a bit inspirational with Ryan trying to make something of his life and be different than his family.  He'll also have Sandy's help.   ;-)    

Enjoy the preview and please give me feedback because that's how I improve.

Title: Every Second Counts

Author: Theresa (sportsmed14)

Beta: beachtree, you are so lovely! Thank you for all the help! Any changes or grammatical errors in this story are mine and mine alone!

Pairing: Ryan/Lindsay

Rating: PG-13

Disclaimer: Unfortunately, I do not own the characters, not even the beloved Ryan Atwood. The OC universe and all of its characters were created by Josh Schwartz and owned by him as well. Don't sue me Josh! I mean it! No copyright infringement intended!

A/N: This is a futuristic Ryan and Lindsay story. It is also a hurt/comfort story so be prepared for some sick!Ryan. You will find out what's wrong with him in Ch. 2, I promise! The first chapter is 100% from Lindsay's point of view. The story really starts to pick up in Ch. 2, which is from Ryan's point of view mostly, but please bare with me on Ch. 1! You will learn what Lindsay has been up to these past ten years, and Ryan does indeed appear in this chapter!

Summary: Ten years after she left Newport, Lindsay finds herself coming back to California to continue pursuing her career goals. How will her life change after she unexpectedly runs into Ryan and learns that he is battling a life threatening illness?

*I suck at summaries! Bare with me!*
 

Read Ch. 1 here!Collapse )

Here is a preview to my next Ryan video,
"Ryan Atwood: Vienna Waits For You!"
  

The preview is 1:10, but the finished video will be the length of the song (about 3 minutes), but please watch this and let me know what you think so far!   :D   Your comments and suggestions are greatly appreciated!    I love how this came out!  

It matches the lyrics of the song perfectly!   The video features the Cohens as Ryan's "Vienna"... their acceptance makes him happy, but of course we know he had a long journey in finally beginning to feel like part of their family.   :)

Enjoy the preview!
