Once Paul was settled with a cup of hot tea, Alva brought a cup of coffee to Evelyn, pressing it into her shaking hands.

"They'll find Matty," Alva reassured her, keeping Paul in his peripheral vision as he sat beside her. "They'll find the woman who took your son, I'm certain."

"How can you be so sure?" Evelyn looked at him, forlorn.

Alva laid a hand on her arm. It was foreign to him to be physically reassuring, but if the kidnapping of a friend's child wasn't the time to let go of his standoffishness, there wasn't one.

"I know because Paul got the information about her from Tommy."

Evelyn frowned. "Tommy appeared to Paul?"

"No." Alva's hand tensed despite himself. "Paul went to him."

"How…" Evelyn blinked, confused.

Alva lowered his voice. "Paul died, Evie. For you, for Matty. He made me arrange to have a doctor stop his heart, to kill him, so he could seek out Tommy in the spirit realm and ask him about Matty."

Evelyn's hand went to her mouth as she gasped. "No…"

"He was gone over four minutes." The memory, still fresh, made Alva's own chest clench and he glanced briefly at Paul, needing that reassurance. "We almost couldn't get him back."

"Oh god…" Evelyn's stoic mask crumbled. "All those hurtful things I said to Paul before… I just said them because I was upset. Paul knows that doesn't he? He knows he's family, right?"

Alva let Evelyn follow his glance to where Paul sat huddled, still ashen pale.

"Perhaps it would be good for you to tell him that."

Evelyn nodded and rose, but before Alva's hand could fall away she took hold of it, giving it a squeeze.

"Alva, just so you know…" She managed a heartfelt smile. "You're family too."

This fic was written for Round 7 at remixthedrabble. The original author was melodyunity whose fic I remixed was Family Ties. This was a scene that would have been so amazing in canon, but then again the whole episode just left me wanting more, More, MORE! (Not that I didn't want more of the show period. It is my favorite TV show ever.)

I actually published a fic already called Family Ties so this holds the distinction of being my first duplicated fic name in 750+ fic. (I console myself with the fact that the funky remix name in parentheses keeps them from being truly identical.)

The original fic was written for yuletide. If you've never given that small fandom holiday fic exchange a try? DO IT! OMG the best fandom experience you may ever have. These people know the real meaning of yuletide cheer. Happiest community of fen I've ever had the good fortune to be lured into by my F-list. /nods/ Sign ups are going on now so head over and check it out!

P.S. Today is my LJ Anniversary. 4 years! Yay! F-listers head on over to mlleemma for a ficcy treat. :-)

I adored Melody's original so I couldn't stop myself from playing with it.

It's so wonderful to see Miracles fic still happening!

Another Miracles person! Yay!

It's Yuletide time again and that always means a few new fic which is nice. I'm working on a Miracles novella that should be out in December and I'm about to post a Miracles/SPN remix I did for this same challenge.

So there may not be many of us writing, but we're still here!
