Okay, so. I’m REALLY weird. And in my head, the person’s name that is first is the top. I’ve been that way since, like, I was 12 (because I’ve literally read gay fanfiction since I was 12), so generally when a fic says ‘Jared/Jensen, in my head Jared is topping so I avoid it, unless they specify that Jensen tops in the summary or tags.
And even though the website says represent.com/jaredjensen, I really feel like it solidifies that Jensen tops because the shirt itself says Jensen x Jared. Because thousands of shirts are going to be printed with Jensen x Jared on the inside. (If they change it when they actually print all the shirts, I will cry).
Like, I feel like Jensen is always the top because Jared is this adorable happy, smiley cupcake sunflower and just smiles at everyone and waives off insults and rude things Misha says sometimes, while Jensen is the one that gets upset on Jared’s behalf, or jealous about Jared and others (ie: Jared with Stephen, or Misha bending Jared over to sign the lower back of the shirt Jared was wearing, etc). So, there’s that.
And like, I don’t know, I feel like it puts a claiming on Jared. Because the fabric will have ‘Jensen x Jared’ printed on it, signifying Jensen’s claim on Jared. So I feel like Jared – precious, smiley dork – would have convinced Jensen, “to be fair, please can the webpage say my name first???? And Jensen caved just because Jared is precious.
This got away from me. I’m sorry I’m weird.
TLDR; Jensen x Jared means Jensen tops Jared in Kiri’s mind because his name is first and IS OFFICIALLY GOING TO BE PRINTED ON THOUSANDS OF TSHIRTS.
