Took it pretty dark there, ladies. But there's some surprising hope in there too which is what I need to concentrate on today. Every part of this Owen and Cristina fanfic team - both here and at ITA and elsewhere - inspires me to keep writing. (Now it's the courage to post it somewhere that has thus far eluded me.)
Pairing being patient as Owen's mother's advice and Cristina's awareness of Owen's patience as something precious to her is outstanding! Of course, ending with Cristina ready to fight for her marriage and an absent Owen is quite the angsty cliffhanger.

WOW ladies...that was a wonderful start! I was riveted throughout the entire chapter. It is very well written by both of you.
Love Gloria and Mama Hunt and the wisdom that they were able to give both Cristina and Owen. It is amazing how you can meet strangers at certain times in your life that can help give you perspective. Also, Mama Hunt rocks! Love that she listened but didn't judge. Callie was great too.
My heart is breaking for Cristina right now and having once again returned home to see that the man she loves is not there. But I trust you guys that I am not going to hate Owen for leaving like that and there will be a good reason why.
The best part is how you guys really delved into what C/O are thinking and feeling. This is unfortunately what we never get enough of or at all on the show. Thank you for giving us that introspection!
I just posted at the site, but I'll repeat it here. This story is off to a brilliant start. Yes, it was dark, but it should be. Cristina and Owen are grappling with huge life issues. They both have to make decisions that will determine how they live the rest of their lives.
If you continue as you began (and I'm confident that you will, because I know how talented you all are as writers), THIS will be the fan fic that gets me through this long hiatus!

We are glad you all are enjoying it. Big relief off our shoulders. Especially mine LOL I have to thank Rural for keeping me from tearing my hair out so I made her co head writer because i wasn't doing all this alone.
Great start ladies. This is a very well written piece.
Only a few mentions I want to make, that don't have to do with the way the chapter was written, but about the characters.
Owen is a very private person, I could say the most private person in that hospital. So to simply blurt out to Callie that Cristina is pregnant seemed to me out of character. He may get along with Callie better that with the other doctors in that hospital, he may have shared the same apartment with her, but I simply don't see him just going and discussing such a private matter with her. It's the inner turmoil that makes Owen such an interesting character to me, Cristina is the one person he shares his feelings with. He completely trust her, he has shared with her his inner most fears, she has seen in him in most vulnerable state. No one else, but Cristina. I think this is one of the reasons he felt so hurt in the SF.
I just don't see him sharing with Callie such a delicate and personal matter (at least the Owen they showed till now on the show). I do see him going to his mother and talking to her about this. And I liked that scene you wrote a lot.
Also I think Owen seeing that mistreated child and thinking that Cristina might do the same was a bit out of place, since Cristina has already said that if she had the baby, she would love him/her. And even more because Owen already told Cristina the she would be a great mother.
I think that Cristina has yet to realize that it is a human being growing inside of her, not just a simple "it" and to realize that Owen indeed made sacrifices in this marriage. Mocking Owen and sarcasm doesn't help Cristina right now. But I am glad that she is willing to fight for her marriage. I hope the separation won't be for too long.
Again great job and I cannot wait for the next chapter.
