I'm hoping for a not-too-traumatic reason for someone with a six-ish year old son to not go to his planned family Xmas.

The family is close by, the person with the son was planning to go, but at the last minute was unable to. It's in California, so weather won't likey be a factor, and I want the person and his son to be free to travel to another Xmas celebration.

I'm wondering about Chicken Pox? Like, if the kids in the extended family all came down with it, maybe the dad wouldn't want to expose his six-year-old? But I've heard of some people so eager to get the pox over with that they deliberately expose their kids to it, so maybe the dad wouldn't stay away.

Any other ideas?

Maybe someone else decides to attend last minute that the father doesn't want to encounter? Friend of a sibling who's been persistent about wanting to date him maybe?

Germe1n, no nos referimos a que hubo gente pundaciblo en Twitter, o bloggers presentes. Si es por eso, el Travelcamp que organizamos varios de nosotros en 2009 en Buenos Aires saca un par de af1os de ventaja en el mercado de turismo Con Bloggers Hub nos referimos a una forma de organizacif3n, previamente anunciada con ese nombre, de las publicaciones de bloggers y usuarios de Twitter, que teneda un espacio particular en el auditorio y un trabajo posterior de me9tricas e informes con resultados. Por ello hablamos del primer Bloggers Hub en un evento de turismo. Varios de los integrantes de Identidades Digitales estuvieron en el Forum Internacional, y sabemos del excelente trabajo de Guillermo Gordillo, y de que ahora se viene otro evento muy interesante. Ased que discutir estas cosas no tiene mucho sentido, en un mercado que todaveda hay que hacer crecer. Saludos.

Is it possible that the dad doesn't want to be exposed to chicken pox? It can be bad news for adults who didn't have it as children.

It would be so difficult for me to make a suggestion without knowing the character, but I do hope that you don't go with chicken pox or any other childhood communicable disease. First, there is a vaccine for chicken pox now, usually given well before age 6, so that might not be a good fit for your story. But more importantly, chicken pox can have serious sequelae--rare fortunately, but still real, so I hope people aren't still deliberately exposing their kids (or parents) to a preventable disease. Then of course, there is also the link to chicken pox and shingles in adults who have not either had the disease or the vaccine. Oh, and it can be disastrous should a pregnant woman contract chicken pox. [End dreary public service announcement.] I've just begun all of your Dark Horse books and stories, and I am such a fan, so I hope that I don't sound too prissy . . .

I do have a question, since I began reading things out of sequence, and I'm not entirely untangled yet. Is the Christmas story with all the boys published yet, or does it have a public title that I can watch for? I know that you have stated more than once that the boys are fine, but clearly lots of us readers are anxious to peek in on them. And oh gosh, if you'd ever even consider suggestions about Chris and where that could go, well, I bet lots of your readers have ideas there! You'll maybe at least concede that the development of the power dynamic of Chris and Ryan was just beginning?

I also found your post about writing m/m versus m/f characters and plots interesting, and I have a couple of thoughts about that. Don't suppose you'd ever check back in on that,or be interested in discussing it further?

At any rate, I'm looking forward to catching up with more of your writings, across both settings and genres, so thank you!
