870 readers have visited Hanging on By a Thread since Stealingspace created it.

Introduction

Hanging on by a thread
When one member of a family becomes deathly ill, it effects the entire family. Splitting at the seems is common and cracks become evident. Some say that the cracks have always been there, they've just been waiting on the pressure of an illness to show them. Will this family fall completely apart?
Lexia, a 16 year-old girl has been diagnosed with lukemia
Each of the kids has a different situation that can cause a strain in the family, they could be a drunk, a partier, pregnant,or anything. If they are young, unless they have a mental illness, they should not have these kinds of problems.

Lillie looked up as Kevin left, furrowing her brows together. Something about family. She looked down at the ground, frowning for a second, before looking up and smiling again. "We can watch a movie with him later, I guess. Unless you don't want to watch a movie. I have a couple of board games we could play." She said, standing so she could look at both of them. She wanted everybody to be as happy as she could make them.

As she stood up to go after Kevin, Laurie heard her daughter talk about getting some board games out, so she turns to her and brushed her head with her palm and said, "Sure Honey, pick whatever game you like.." the look on her daughters face told her everything, 'I just want to make everyone happy'. Laurie though about giving her a small heart-to-heart talk but that would have to wait until she found out what had happened to Kevin's family that caused him to leave so early.

Re: Hanging on By a Thread

Found it very interesting. Can I be Lexia's sister or a close friend?

Re: Hanging on By a Thread

Hey guys, just a little warning, I might be inactive for 4-5ish days since I've just come home from an operation and I'll be on painkillers for the rest of the week so I may not feel like coming online. But that's only a maybe, don't start giving up on me now! Hahah!

Re: Hanging on By a Thread

Re: Hanging on By a Thread

Girl Four: Reserved for KayEyeEmm ( Though, we already have a pregnant girl :) )

Boy One: Reserved for KILLERZARIC (Though I cannot say he will be the youngest, There will be toddlers also )

Boy Three: Reserved for Tom Ice

I have to say, that i will not hold reservations too long , so get your characters in, thanks :) ... lovechanningforever that's fine

Re: Hanging on By a Thread

Stealingspace are you around? I plan to make my character the one jealous of Lexia for all the attention she's getting.

Re: Hanging on By a Thread

Could I take a fifteen year old boy with a mental illness and who's gay?

Re: Hanging on By a Thread

@KayEyeEmm i put my character in as pregnant

Re: Hanging on By a Thread

Can I have a 16 yr old girl? I would like to make her "strain" be pregnancy.

Re: Hanging on By a Thread

I would like to reserve a boy that is 16. I also suggest you make a character skelly to make it easier because I don't know what you want to know about the character.

Re: Hanging on By a Thread

can i reserve a girl that would be 17?
