Title: All About Family
Rating: PG
Summary: S4 with spoilers up to last week's episode. And I'd summarize, but I'd lose some of the shock value of this chapter.

Thank you to chazper for beta duties. And I must give credit to brandywine421's hurting Ryan fic: http://brandywine421.livejournal.com/369537.html. The first line in her story gave me my muse and then the episode helped me carry it to - hopefully - some sort of story.
I'll also admit that I have no idea where I'm going with this.

They grounded Seth first. Collapse )

Year in Fic Meme

Here’s the Year In Fic Meme, gakked from ctoan and others.
Take the first few lines of the first fic you posted each month in 2006.
Sorry, not every month is represented...
Not Going Back
“I need to know that you’re telling me everything that happened.” Sandy said as he broke the news to Ryan that the police were issuing a warrant for his arrest.
Seth knew he was the impetus that made Ryan part of his family, and yet he couldn’t help but feel somewhat resentful towards the new addition.
Creative Parenting
Ominous consequences hung thick in the air for their weekend escapades and it had both boys walking around on egg shells.
Two Days Two Nights
Dawn’s eyes are swollen and bloodshot, reminding Ryan of how she looked all those times she had been drinking, when he finds her at the car impound, crying as she stares through the chain-linked fence at the remains of his graduation present.
Once Upon a Time in a Cabin in Vail
Once upon a time, in a cabin in Vail, a woman sat gazing out the window of her cozy wood cabin.

I just got this in my e-mail and thought I would post.

Mastectomy Hospital Bill in Congress

If you know anyone who has had a mastectomy, you may know that there is a lot of discomfort and pain afterwards. Insurance companies are trying to make mastectomies an outpatient procedure. Let's give women the chance to recover properly in the hospital for 2 days after surgery.

Mastectomy Bill in Congress

It takes 2 seconds to do this and is very important...please take the time and do it really quick!

Breast Cancer Hospitalization Bill - Important legislation for all women.

Please send this to everyone in your address book. If there was ever a time when our voices and choices should be heard, this is one of those times. If you're receiving this, it's because I think you will take the 30 seconds to go t o vote on this issue and send it on to others you know who will do the same.

There's a bill called the Breast Cancer Patient Protection Act which will require insurance companies to cover a minimum 48-hour hospital stay for patients undergoing a mastectomy. It's about eliminating the "drive-through mastectomy" where women are forced to go home just a few hours after surgery, against the wishes of their doctor, still groggy from anesthesia and sometimes with drainage tubes still attached.

Lifetime Television has put this bill on their web page with a petition drive to show your support. Last year over half the House signed on.

PLEASE!! Sign the petition by clicking on the web site below. You need not give more than your name and zip code number.


This takes about 2 seconds. PLEASE PASS THIS ON to your friends and family, and on behalf of all women, THANKS.
