19Clearing the Air » by Sternwood 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. 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. Here is my take.
