    Summary

    I have this idea about writing a larger work about Anna and Ryan. This started off as just an exercise to characterise them, but I think it fits pretty seamlessly into the narrative.

    For reference, I think Anna leaving the show was a huge mistake. I suppose this is my attempt to write out how I imagine they could've made Anna into something of a second way for Ryan, after Seth and Summer were confirmed. I'm actually quite a big Marissa/Ryan fan, at least in Season 1 and 2. But I think one of the reasons people don't remember some of Season 2 and 3 as fondly is because Ryan/Marissa as an on/off star-cross was played out. This is where Luke and Anna could've really picked up the slack. They say you shouldn't focus on what could've been, but hey. Isn't that what fiction is for?

    I read during an interview with Josh Schwartz recently that they considered Anna and Ryan near the end of Season 1 to keep Anna on the show but ultimately opted to go for Theresa.

    What a mistake.

    So, can one conversation between Anna and Ryan reshape the fate of the glorious mess that was The OC? Let's find out.

    Also I might call this the Annafesto moving forward but also that could just be a terrible name.

    Summary

    “Before you get in your head about it, I’m not dating Summer. We’re just friends.”

    “I’d give you my blessing if you were, Ry.” Seth says and Ryan could imagine him waving his hand around, as if dismissing it.

    “Great, I’ll take it into consideration then.” Ryan's voice is sarcastic enough he’d think Seth would notice. He doesn't. Seth lets out a surprised “Really?”

    “Nope. Call you later.”

    Summary

    "Did we just write our vows?"

    "Are you kidding? I'm not saying all that mushy bullshit in front of our parents."

    Ryan laughed. Honestly he was hoping she'd be on board with some generic, thirty-second vow exchange too. Ryan, do you take this woman? Yeah. Summer, are you cool with this man? Sure I am. The end, time for champagne.

    Summary

    “Did you ask because you want your dad to be involved, or because you don’t?” Kaitlin asks, and Ryan can’t quite meet her eyes.
    “I’m not—I don’t—it’s not my decision, Kaitlin, I don’t—”
    “Ryan,” she says softly.
    “He’s a shitty dad, okay?” Ryan says. “It’s not—I don’t—I just don’t want him to fuck up another kid.”

    Ryan has some concerns about his new baby brother.

    “How you doing, buddy?” Seth asks.

    Summary

    Ryan Atwood had a difficult start. Even though he loved his family, he basically parented himself. Ryan was fatherless, his mother struggled with addiction, and his brother in jail. Even when he lived with the Cohen's, he never truly felt like he had parents.

    In this story, Ryan works on healing himself, his family, and reaches a place of acceptance, motivation, and drive to support others who need it.

    Summary

    Ryan hated being hungry. It reminded him too closely of his time in Chino, when his mother or her latest boyfriend had spent their grocery money on drugs or alcohol or even just rent. The emptiness inside of him felt deep and hunger amplified it tenfold.

    He pushed it away, sat at the table with the Cohen’s and tried to remember he was in a house with cupboards full of more food than he could ever dream of eating, even if he did want to eat it.
