Okay, the topic is what if? You throw out a what if and we'll take it from there. For example, What if?
We are all sad that Brandt died in the last chapter. He was related to no one and he had no significant other, so although the clan loses a good man and Aaron loses a best friend. Hisdeath doesn't really impact the individual characters. What if?
Kyle died?4/8/2011 #1 Report
Gah! I don't even want to think about that! Kyle is one of the most awesome sauce people in your story!
And don't even GET to Ian, or Burns...

abc and pipes,
But think about implications. If Kyle died. Sunny would obbviously be devastated. Who would console her? Wanderer? She would be just as devastated..would she be a consoler or a consolee? What about Ian? Would he run to Wanderer or his mother? After all, how would that affect mom? What part would Nate play in all this? Wanderer might feel like the outsider in this scenario. After all she's not officially related to the O'Shea's yet and how do we know she wouldn't have been blamed for the accident? Especially by Sunny? Would Burns or Ice possibly play into this considering that Sunny is a soul? They would understand her grief from a soul perspective. Write a scenario. Tell me about it.-nl4/10/2011 #4 Report
Umm I think Wanderer would blame herself. She would apologize profusely to Ian for taking his brother's life but he would keep on saying "It wasn't your fault"...Ian would be devastated! And I don't want to even think about Sunny. :( That poor thing. sigh....And his mom has just got him back, that woman would loose her mind if she would have to face the loss of her first born! :(4/11/2011 #5 Report
Don't you think that Sunny might lose her mind and blame Wanderer? After all, it should have been Ian.-NL4/11/2011 #6 Report
Um No I don't think Sunny would blame Wanderer. Sunny's a good soul, we all know that. And if the situation was reversed, Wanderer wouldn't have blamed her.4/12/2011 #7 Report
I don't know. Kyle is Sunny's world. Without him, she has no reason to be at the caverns. I don't believe that she would be so forgiving. At least not right away. I think it would definitely fracture the friendship between them.-NL4/12/2011 #8 Report
I agree...Sunny is a spunky little soul! If Kyle died, she would be crushed. I'm not sure that she would lash out but I think her grief would take a different form, depression. I think she would stop talking, stop eating, and stop participating in the caverns. She lived for Kyle before she even met him. He is her whole world. I think she would die without him (wow...i'm getting sad just writing about this). So it shouldn't have been Kyle!
What if it were Jeb? Would their family band together? Or would they be torn apart? Who would keep the peace? Wanda would never forgive herself? Aunt Maggie and Sharon would be on a rampage. If it were Jeb, it would affect everyone.4/12/2011 #9 Report
Well, for starters, I don't think Jeb would have gone on this trip. He doesn't really like to leave his home and if it was him, he probably wouldn't have driven. Wanderer would have done the driving and she wouldn't have forgotten the lights. But....if it was Jeb who died I think Maggie would definitely put herself in the ruling position and she probably would band Wanderer from the caverns meaning Ian and family would obviously leave as well. So the only soul left behind would be Ice since Sunny is for all intensive purposes an O'Shea. Jared and Mel would stay behind because with both Ian and Kyle gone, Jared would emerge as the male leader with Aaron and Ice as his cohorts and Brandt considering he would still be alive. Wanderer would probably blame herself just as she did with Brandt.-NL4/13/2011 #10 Report
If Kyle died, I would hunt you down, kill you, call the FBI, and tell them you were crazy, and I attacked you out of self defense and pure emotional rage.
Wait, Brandt died? How much exactly have I missed?
I'll get reading right now!4/14/2011 #11 Report
Here's another What If –
What if something happened to Wanda? She got taken for questioning?
I don't know about you guys, but I completely adore stories where Ian or Wanda are captured. Maybe we'll see some of that?
And LOL, I'm not from Ireland. I'm just there for a week. I could only wish I could get out of this rainy, wet shithole of a city I live in. We don't travel much. It's WA to NY, back and forth, back and forth.
Hey, Piper, do you live in Toronto by any chance?4/18/2011 #12 Report
So you ARE from Toronto? Cause I'm like applying to University of Toronto next year. Actually I'm applying to a lot of places - but I'm asking you about it because you're Canadian. I'd like to learn more about it - I just hope it's not dead and boring like everyone says.4/19/2011 #14 Report
Phew. For one panicky second I thought you were some kinda stalker, but no such worries now. Anyways, Canada's awesome, I've been living here practically my whole life! I love it here! What do you want to know about it? And it ain't dead boring!

Actually, Canada may be cold, but it is an amazing country. I am not biased because I've lived here all my life. Rather, I have visited many countries. But the thing is, Canada just gives you the feeling of home. Hot summers, cold winters. The winter gives you a more Christmassy feeling, because of the snow.
Also, the health and education system is amazing.

I'd like to visit one day. But seriously I really hate the cold! Maybe one day when you are older and on your own you'll invite me to visit and stay with you. I would do the same for you and your man if you ever want to visit Virginia Beach. Love ya!-NL4/19/2011 #18 Report
Haha! That would be so cool! I dunno, I'll probably be very busy for the next ten years, at least. Wow, that sounds like such a long time. I feel old already...
