Jared’s warm and solid against his back, his breath sweet as it brushes Jensen’s neck and when Jared wraps one arm around his chest, holding him close, Jensen relaxes for the first time in three days. He falls asleep and doesn’t wake up until they arrive on set half an hour later, Jared shaking him gently and cheerily singing “Wake up, sleepyhead” into his ear.

Summary:  Jared has had a secret crush for months. But it’s not like publishing genius and gay activist Jensen Ackles is going to notice the tall, weird guy pushing the mail cart. So when Jared’s best friend and Jensen’s assistant, Sandy, tells him that Jensen is getting married in one month to a fellow activist — something about being the first gay couple to get married in the state — Jared knows some things just aren’t meant to be.


I think [Jared and Jensen] understand a wonderful thing. This is unheard of and unreal to be in this situation and I think both of them love each other. We are honestly a family, the Ackles and the Padaleckis, we are literally a family. My son plays with their daughter and we love each other in that way. - Genevieve Padalecki [x/x/x]
