Title: Find Your Light
Summary: Written for the [livejournal.com profile] spn_reversebang. Jared is the long-suffering but well-loved stage manager of the Wilmington Shakespeare festival. He's in charge of running everything behind the scenes for this year's flagship production of Macbeth, his job made only harder by the anxiety-ridden director and the eccentric cast, including theatre superstar Jeffrey Dean Morgan and newly arrived action movie sensation, Jensen Ackles, who is proving to be much more difficult to work with than anyone expected. Jared manages to juggle his responsibilities well enough… right up until the infamous curse of "The Scottish Play" takes effect, and then it's down to him and Jensen to ensure that the play must go on.
Artist: [livejournal.com profile] cybel
Characters: Jared/Jensen, and a motley crew of CW cast and OCs, because I couldn't decide on one or the other.
Rating: NC-17
Wordcount: 12,000
Warnings: Off-screen secondary character death.
Neurotic Author's Note #1: I would like to thank the Academy… no, wait. ;) Okay, seriously, a big thank you to [livejournal.com profile] cybel, whose beautiful artwork leaped off the page at me right away and had me absolutely scrambling to make sure I got it. I only hope I have done it justice in the slightest. Also to my rockstar beta [livejournal.com profile] rainylemons, who agreed to beta this on a DIME, I am not even kidding you. All remaining mistakes, naturally, are mine.
Neurotic Author's Note #2: A big thank you also to the Reverse Big Bang Mods. It takes a truly heroic kind of insanity to run a project as big as this one, to herd all the cats and hope they end up in the right place.
Neurotic Author's Note #3: This kept trying to become a Slings & Arrows AU, and although I battled the impulse heroically, I'm not sure I succeeded entirely. I have next to no knowledge of the theatre world, so if any of this stuff seems like it's entirely made up, that's because it is. Also, Jared and Jensen stubbornly refused to have sex at all for the longest time. I had to bribe them with Shakespeare. IDEK. So, yeah, this is basically the floofiest thing ever, and I hope you can forgive me and just try to enjoy the fluff for what it is. :)
Neurotic Author's Note #4: All the quotes in the text are from Shakespeare's Macbeth, for the record.

Part 2
ratherastory: (Relevant)
Title: No Cure for the Common Birthday
Summary: Jared's birthdays are cursed. Every time he tries to celebrate, something goes wrong. This time, Jensen decides to break his streak of bad luck, except that it's apparently really hard to break a curse.
Characters: Jensen, Jared
Rating: PG-13
Wordcount: 4,427
Disclaimer: Lies for fun and no profit.
Warnings: Schmoop and h/c, nothing else.
Neurotic Author's Note #1: Written as a last-minute birthday present for [livejournal.com profile] peppervl, who likes schmoop and h/c and the boys taking care of each other. Hope you like it, babe!
Neurotic Author's Note #2: Unbeta'd, because I only wrote it last night. Whoops.
Neurotic Author's Note #3: Also, when it comes to RPF, I seem to be incapable of writing anything other than vaguely schmoopy gen h/c. Good thing that's what was called for this time. Maybe some other time I'll actually managed to victimise Jensen instead of Jared. ;)

Title: The Breathing Rose
Summary: Jared's asthma acts up, resulting in a really bad day. Jensen helps.
Characters: Jared, Jensen
Rating: PG-13
Wordcount: 3,508
Disclaimer: NONE OF IT IS REAL, OKAY? IT'S ALL FAKE! No, seriously. Borrowing likenesses for fun and no profit. Obviously these are not the real people whose names I used, there is no relation whatsoever claimed here, and certainly no claim to factual accuracy. It's fake-fake-fake. Faker than a three-dollar bill.
Warnings: A wee bit of mild swearing. Fluff. Oh, and I gave Jared asthma, for the hell of it.
Neurotic Author's Note #1: This idea popped into my head a few weeks ago, and apparently not even interacting with the real boys at a convention (however briefly) could make it let go. So, yeah. I dunno, I got nothin', except that apparently I wrote RPF again. /o\
Neurotic Author's Note #2: The title of this story is taken from a quote by Oliver Wendell Holmes: "But friendship is the breathing rose, with sweets in every fold." I don't know, I thought it was nice. :)
Neurotic Author's Note #3: Totally unbeta'd. I'm just playing around, trying to get the writing juices flowing again.

The Breathing Rose )
ratherastory: (Big Bang 2011)
Title: Pandora's Box
Summary: Written for [livejournal.com profile] spn_j2_bigbang. RPS based on the movie Avatar. Marine Jensen Ackles thinks his life is over when he becomes paralyzed in the course of duty, but when his twin brother is killed in a robbery everything changes. Struggling to make sense of his loss, Jensen decides to take his brother's place in a mission on the distant moon of Pandora, where a private corporation has a large mining concern. New cutting-edge technology allows Jensen to form a psychic link with an avatar — an artificially-grown body composed of the DNA of both humans and the Na'vi, the aliens native to Pandora— and thus interact directly with the otherwise hostile, if beautiful planet.
In exchange for the spinal surgery that will allow him to regain the use of his legs, Jensen agrees to infiltrate the Na'vi. Once he's there, though, he becomes close with the tribe, particularly the chief's son, Jared, his guide and mentor. Under Jared's tutelage, a whole new world opens up for Jensen, along with the first blossom of love. But when tensions between the Navi and the military branch of the human operations run too high, Jensen is faced with having to make a choice between the world he comes from and the world where he has found love and where, for the first time in his life, he truly feels at home.

Characters: Jared/Jensen, OCs (brief but explicit Jensen/OFC)
Rating: NC-17
Wordcount: 96,645
Disclaimer: Obviously, I have no claim to any of these people. In the context of this story they are, for all intents and purposes, not real. I am merely borrowing their likenesses for purposes of entertainment only. No profit made, etc.
Warnings: Swearing, violence, explicit sex (slash & one het scene), bonded sex (the happy blue alien bond type), a few instances of homophobic comments, character death (not Jensen or Jared).
Neurotic Author's Note: Detailed notes will be in the last section of this Big Bang, but I owe an immense debt of gratitude to my beta, [livejournal.com profile] peppervl, who wrestled this beast into submission. Many thanks go out to [livejournal.com profile] wendy and [livejournal.com profile] thehighwaywoman for putting together this wonderful madness! And many thanks to everyone on my flist (and Twitter!) who put up with my months and months of whining about this story. You are all awesome. :)

Special Note for my Artist: The lovely [livejournal.com profile] folkin_up_again has made several pieces of art for this story! Clicky on the link below to take a look at everything she worked so hard to produce!
