I just spit my water all over my screen when I saw your tags on my gifset. DYING over #ackleconda and #the adventures of mr ackles and his third leg - LOVE THEM!
omg i just see your ask, really?? thanks to you for your gifset!!! It really is an invaluable contribution for … ahem … my perv .. my scientific research about the existence or not of the third leg of Mr. Ackles. My answer so far, with all the results obtained after a very detailed investigation is that yes, the ackleconda really exists. Here the proofs:
Your heart was pounding profusely, as you held your gaze on the screen.
It only took a few minutes before you got a response, and once you did, you were beyond mortified.
Frantically, you went back to your Instagram and found the comment Bonnie left on your picture. She had given you her number, but you accidentally mixed up the last two numbers.
Which brought you here.
Looking at the cute little selfie you received, you couldn’t believe your eyes.
Not only did you text the wrong number, but you texted Jensen freaking Ackles. The actor you had crushed on for years.
You texted back the emoji, not knowing what to say.
And as the seconds passed, it didn’t take long for you to get another reply.
‘Isn’t it a little late for a bath? I mean, shouldn’t you be in bed? Lol.'
You let out a breath you didn’t realize you were holding. This was so surreal.
How did you manage to text your celebrity crush, was beyond anything you could imagine.
For a moment, you thought you should just apologize and then throw your phone and pretend it never happened, but then you decided to continue the conversation with him. I mean, it’s not everyday you get to talk to Jensen.
'It’s never too late for a bubble bath, especially when there’s wine. But what about you? Why aren’t you in bed?'
Suddenly, you felt a little flirtatious. Maybe it was the alcohol. Whatever it was, you didn’t seem to mind.
Taking a sip of your wine, you waited for his response. Thinking of a million things all at once. You had to pinch yourself to see if you were dreaming.
'Alcohol makes everything better. 😉
I can’t sleep. My name is Jensen by the way.'
And just like that, you two were texting back and forth for what seemed like forever.
You talked about work and movies and basically everything you could think of. You also talked about your job and the fact that you were a fan of his show. Even when you were done with the bath and now snuggled up in bed.
Somehow, you were both feeling something between you two. Feeling a pull that made you want to keep the conversation going even though you two had only talked this one time. Like two close friends catching up.
But then you saw the time, and suddenly were brought back to reality. You couldn’t believe you were texting him for three hours straight!
'Damn, it’s super late!’ You texted Jensen.
'Didn’t know we were talking for that long. Lol. Guess that happens when you’re having fun. 😉'
You felt your stomach flutter. Giving you a warm sensation throughout your body.
'Well, I better get some sleep. Have another long day tomorrow.'
Once you sent that text, you were a bit bummed. Not wanting it to end, but you were fighting your eyes to stay open.
'Hey…there’s something I want to ask you before you go.’ He replied.
You were a bit hesitant, but curious.
Those three dots appeared on the screen, making you hold your breath with anticipation.
'Can you send a selfie? Want to put a face to the legs. Lol'
And just like that, you felt nervous. Nauseas even. You were always insecure, but having Jensen ask for a picture, especially without makeup, you were scared.
Scared of what he might think. Or say.
'Please?’ You received another text.
You let out a sigh, and caved. Holding the blanket close to you, you snapped a quick selfie. The flash from your phone, made your eyes glossy. You were laying on your side, with your hair laid across your pillow and a soft smile that seemed shy yet inviting.
But you sent the picture before you could even talk yourself out of it.
Three dots on the screen, came and gone.
Suddenly you panicked.
Maybe he didn’t like the picture? Or maybe he didn’t think you were pretty? Whatever it was, you were now regretting ever sending him the picture.
Wishing you never even sent the first text to begin with.
You locked your phone and closed your eyes, wincing at the thoughts of what you imagined was going through his head.
Until your phone vibrated.
'Fuck, you’re beautiful.'
Your lips curved into a cheeky grin, and a squeal escaped from you.
Though you wanted to keep talking, you also wanted to play it cool.
'Well I enjoyed our conversation. It was fun.'
'Me too. I haven’t had that much fun talking to anyone in a long time. So thank you.'
'Good night, Jensen.'
'Good night, sweet heart. Hopefully next time we will talk on the phone instead of this texting crap. I hate texting. lol.'
Your smile felt like it curved even more. But you were sure it wasn’t even possible. Jensen Ackles wanted to talk to you again. But this time, you would hear his deep, rough voice. It made your stomach flutter from just the thought.
'Lol, maybe. If you’re lucky 😉 now go to sleep Mr. Ackles. It’s passed your bed time.'
Imagine Jensen flirting and giving you his number while you take pictures of him during an event.
“Mr Ackles! Mr Ackles right here! Here!”
“Jensen! Jensen here!”
“Mr Padalecki please here!”
“Jensen can you look here? Please!”
“Mr Padalecki, here here!”
You could almost feel dizzy at times like this, with everybody shouting around you, pushing and pulling to get a good picture of whatever celebrity it was that was walking in front of you at the moment. But it was your job. The flashes, screams and shouts, some hits here and there were all part of your job and you loved it to pieces. You were a photographer, one unlike any other though. Apart from the photoshoots you did for the numerous magazines you worked in you loved stepping outside your comfort zone and taking pictures of celebrities in whatever event it was yourself. Most of your bosses were skeptical about it at first but once you actually showed them the photos you’d take they would immediately let you do your thing. So you could say you did some of the reporter part as well.
You chuckled at everybody’s enthusiasm and continued with taking your photos, not really caring if they’d look directly at the camera. You’d taken some of the best photos in your life when they wouldn’t look in the camera and do their thing. That and maybe, just maybe, it was because you felt your breath and all words get caught in your throat whenever you noticed that the green-eyed older man was getting closer. You had a crush on him, and he was just one of the few men you really admired so much in your life – both of his work and character. Your friend’s would tease you endlessly about it but you were willing to take it. It was Jensen Ackles after all, you could take anything for him and from him.
You snapped more photos of him, looking occasionally at them to see if they were good enough. You continued, smiling softly when you saw that boyish grin that would make your heart flutter. You tilted your camera to get a better view of him and that was when you noticed it. Your breath got caught in your throat when you actually saw him look into your camera. Of course you tried to tell yourself not to think much about it because you were just another photographer in a sea of people, cameras… oh yeah and fans of course with plenty of posters and photos to sign.
But then his eyes remained focused on you and you actually frowned. You bit your lip and looked down at your camera. You glanced up only to see him take off his glasses and his smile turn into an almost smirk. The shouting kept going but he didn’t seem all that interested in any of them like his friend seemed to. You heard some whines from fans that were nearby, when he walked past them and you felt a little bad for them because they really wanted them to sign their photos.
“Jensen, Jensen please!” you heard some of them and he paused, giving them a charming grin.
“I’ll be right back, just a second yeah?” he shouted, trying to be heard over all of the noise.
Your eyes all but widened as while taking the photos you actually saw him turn in your direction and get closer. You snapped more photos but for a moment you felt frozen in your place when he flashed you that smile so you decided to focus on your camera. You looked down at it, supposedly interested in the photos you’d taken more than the man approaching you. Because he was. And how did you know that? Well:
“Hey there” you heard a deep voice say, not as deep as you were used to hearing on the show. But sure as hell your head snapped up before you could realize it.
Your eyes were wide as you looked right and left, even behind before finally meeting his eyes “Me?” you pointed at yourself and he chuckled, fixing his glasses.
“Yeah, yeah actually you. Don’t think there is a single man that would want to talk to anyone else with you in the crowd.
“I uh-” you giggled – like a freaking schoolgirl! - and looked down for a moment “Thanks, I guess?”
“Don’t thank me, miss (Y/l/n).” he shook his head, smiling a little nervously (for real?). You glanced down to see you really had your ID of sorts hanging from your neck.
“I’m sorry.” you laughed, shaking your head at realizing how stupid you really must have sounded “I just- I am trying really hard not to fangirl
“No, for real. Don’t- Don’t apologize.” he rubbed the back of his neck, glancing at Jared for a second “I am really the one that should be fanboying.” he chuckled and your eyebrows shot up.
“You- I just really admire your work, and I don’t mean just the magazines. I’ve been following your blog for as long as I can remember.” he breathed out and at that moment you felt all air get knocked out of your lungs.
You opened your mouth to speak but another voice was heard that made him look the other way “Jens?” you recognized it as Jared’s voice and once you looked back at the man in front of you, you heard him sigh.
“Always the worst timing.” he mumbled to himself and you chewed on your lower lip.
“Uhm so (Y/n)-” pursed his lips for a moment, chewing softly on it for a moment “Uh can I borrow that?” he spoke to a fan right next to you that was holding a pen for Jared as it seemed to sign along with a small photo.
“Sure” she giggled and you watched curiously.
“Thanks sweetheart.” he grinned before turning to you. You almost jumped as you felt a shock of electricity that ran through your hand once he took hold of your palm.
You saw him scribble down something before handing the pen back to the girl, just in time as Jared came to sign the photo. Jensen gave you one last big smile before he was shoved by his friend to move forward.
The last thing you heard was “See you in a week.” from before looking down to see a number written on your hand with a ‘Call me ;)’ below it.
You could swear your heart stopped beating at that moment and everything stopped functioning in general. But there was only one question that still was not answered: What was it in a week?
J2 came running through the crowd from the back of the room.
Jared: Welcome to our wonderful dysfunctional family.
Jensen was yelling for Jim Beaver (also at the convention) to come back when he was in the glass walkway above the panel room.
Jensen teasing Jared: Hearing goes at 35…
Jared apologizes for back problems in ops. Jensen: What’d you do? Jared: I think I turned 35 and everything stopped working.
Jared: Are you done yammering, Mr. Ackles? Jensen: Never :P
Jensen thanks everyone for being here opening day of football season since Pittsburgh is the most sports city on the planet apparently lol.
Someone yelled that they love Jensen and Jared said, “I love him, too,” so another fan yelled that they loved Jared and he said, “I know” lol.
Danneel wanted to FaceTime Jensen during photo ops because Arrow was saying “Dada.”
Jensen’s favorite ep to film was Baby. Jared mentioned The French Mistake, Changing Channels, Hollywood Babylon.
In Hollywood Babylon, they got bigger trailers for the actors in the ep and J2 were like, “We’ll take them.”
Working with kids on set depends on the parents.
Jared says that sometimes kids would rather Game Boy…Jensen: Game Boy???
Working with kids is logistically challenging because they can only shoot so many hours. Jared says it’s tough when kids don’t seem into it but have pushy parents, but it’s great when the kids love acting. Jensen says it’s nice to have innocent energy on set. Child actors don’t overthink characters like adults do.
J2 talking at the same time :P
Jensen says watching father-child relationships on television affects him more now that he’s a father.
Fan: When is the s13 promo coming? J2: I imagine pretty soon. Maybe this week or next week. They’re not sure, though.
Jensen: We’ve lived these characters, and have people to remind us of our real life. Each other, our wives…
Jensen jokes that he hasn’t read a script since s3. Jared: He gets a flip book version. Jensen: Really trying to get popup.
Boys cracking each other up :)
Jensen: The Winchesters don’t live in a world with superheroes. They live in a world with real heroes.
Fan: Would you guys do an Arrow crossover? Jensen: Oh, sure. Let Misha go over there.
Jensen just called Stephen Amell a “crossover slut” and that he needs to “lock it up” on the Arrow crossovers lol.
Except each other, Jared liked working with Gabriel/Richard and Ruby/Gen. Jared said it was a lot of fun to have Richard around because such crazy things happen on set with Gabriel.
Jensen liked working with Briana. She helps stretch his comedic muscles.
Jensen just said posse magnet and Jared said: “You’re confusing reality with porn again” :P
Favorite lines? Jared: Low sodium freaks.
Reaction when they found out so many characters were killed in the finale? Jared: I don’t like it, but it makes great TV.
Jensen’s reaction was the same as when he reads a scene when he dies: “Meh. I’ll come back.”
If you could travel anywhere in the world where would you go? Jared: Vancouver and Austin because that’s where my family is. Jensen: *pretends to snore*
Jared would travel to Florence, Italy. Jensen would travel to one of the Scandinavian countries. Would also love to go back to Japan.
Every time the room starts to vibrate (like from helicopters flying by) Jensen looks for Transformers lol.
There were a lot of things behind the scenes during the end of season 11 that made things complicated with the last three eps.
They don’t usually shoot stuff they can’t use in an episode. Jensen says they’ve gotten it down to a science. Things are rarely on the cutting room floor.
There is enough gag reel footage for a 30 min. gag reel just from the first 2-3 episodes. They want the gag reels to be longer, but they don’t budget for it.
Jared: I’d watch a season of gag reels. Everyone: Us, too!
Fan asks a tech question and mentions Jensen may have more perspective because he directs. Jensen: I usually do hehehe.
Jared: I haven’t seen Magic Mike. Jensen: All the way through.
Jensen watches The Change-Up a lot. Jared sings along to Alvin and the Chipmunks when he puts it on for his kids and watches it even after his kids will go take a nap.
Jared’s favorite big bad character is Lucifer. Jensen agrees, then gives honorable mentions to Azazel and Alastair.
One of Jensen’s favorite scenes in s11 was when he was talking with Chuck.
J2 are open-mouthed about a fan’s amazing binge-watch of Supernatural.
Jared’s favorite dramatic TV show to binge is Breaking Bad. J2 both like BB.
Jared is fangirling over Jensen’s Eric Brady character :P
Jensen’s favorite show to binge is Arrested Development.
After mentioning a few shows they enjoy, Jensen says, “But that’s enough advertising for other TV shows.”
J2 haven’t pranked each other in a long time. It got too dangerous. They usually work together when doings pranks on other people.
Jared is waving his foot over Jensen’s crotch lol.
Their usual prank target is Misha. Recently made him mess up and when the director was like, “Misha, what’s up?” J2 were like: “Yeah, Misha!”
Jensen hit Jared in the balls when Jared was hugging Misha during filming on Friday. Jensen says that Jared then said, “I hope that was you, Misha.” Jared: I was trying to break him! Jensen says that Jared was squatting a little in front of him during the hug so he just brought his foot up a little… lol
Jensen: “I already worked with the actor I wanted to work with.” Jared: Aww!! Jared then hugs Jensen. Then Jensen says, “Actually, my Dad…” lol.
Jared would have loved to work with Robin Williams <3
