Eve Davidson has authored stories such as
There Are No Accidents - Emma notices the bruises on Craig and forces a call to Children's Aid, and this changes things. It's no longer such a direct route for Craig to live with Joey.
Crumbling - It seems to me that after Craig ends up in that shelter after running away when Ashley goes to England, it seems that he would go to a mental hospital. This is what happens if he did.

Wednesday Fear has authored stories such as
When Things Are Good - A story about Craig and the abuse.
Full Inheritance - This is a story about Craig starting at the start of grade 11 and then going on to some point in the future. I like how that season started with Joey saying he'd get his "full inheritance" and it seemed to have more meaning than just money.
