This is just to illustrate how deeply moved Jensen was that the hotline could help people, maybe even save someone who was thinking of hurting themselves. If you read Jared’s chapter in the new book from Fangasm, Family Don’t End With Blood, you know that he was in a very dark place two years ago right around JIBCon and needed help. This is a big deal for Jensen because he wants to make things better for other’s who felt the same way. And the rest of the cast really tried to comfort Jensen this weekend when all of this hit him and he had to (as he put it) “take a knee”. That’s a beautiful thing. (JIB8)
Summary:You’re at your mom’s house with your kids when your husband sends you a very NSFW photo while he’s away.

Warnings: children (because apparently that needs a warning), a stubborn toddler, NSFW photo under the cut, embarrassment, sexting, implied smut
A/N: @wayward-girl sent me this photo and my brain just kicked into overdrive so… here ya go. This is also my (very late - I’m so, so sorry) submission for @frickfracklesackles‘s 1,000 Followers Celebration Challenge. My prompt was “I don’t know whether to worship at your feet or spank the living shit out of you.” and is bolded below.
Jared was in Los Angeles, shooting some promo shoot for something he wouldn’t tell you about. It seemed sketchy, but you shrugged it off for the most part. Packing up the kids, you headed for your mom’s house, knowing she’d listen to your worrying about there being another woman while also helping you with Jake and Lauren.
Day two without Jared, and you were missing him. You woke up that morning and shot him a text, just saying, “Wish you were here,” with a kissing emoticon. After laying in bed for ten more minutes with no reply, you sighed and planted your feet on the floor. Trudging to the kitchen, you clutched the warm black mug between your hands, savoring every single sip of the holy liquid you were taking in.
I rarely get involved when the
fandom argues about something, but I’ve seen a lot of discussion on this
part, and since I was actually there, I’ve got something to say.
of all, Jensen is a grown man (they are all adults!) who is more than
capable of making his own decisions and say no if there’s something he
doesn’t wanna do. No one - and I repeat - NO ONE was forced to drink
alcohol during this con. The stage contained a table with water bottles -
and the actors chose for themselves whatever they liked to drink during
Secondly, and most importantly, Jensen wasn’t drunk during his
panel with Misha Sunday. I’d interacted with him several times during
the day - at my J2 photo op session & at Jensen’s autograph session
to mention a few. Both he and Jared were tired (the actors had been
enjoying the evening in Rome Saturday) and were still a little jetlagged
from their trip, but they were warm and kind and focused while
interacting with their fans - as always! Jensen had gone through an
emotional rollercoaster that day, having met a couple of ladies who
worked the YANA crisis hotline, and it had hit him hard. As he said at
the panel; the fans mean a shit-ton to him and the rest of the cast, and
this was the first time he’d met some of the operators of the hotline
in person. So at the panel, Jensen was vulnerable. In true Jensen
fashion though, he probably tried to over-compensate for that by doing
his best to make the panel light and make us laugh. However, Misha
decided to bring up what had happened to Jensen during the day (with
Jensen’s permission), and Jensen got emotional again talking about it.
had nothing to do with alcohol. Jensen was completely on point! It
saddens me that people are calling Jensen all sorts of things (saying he
was drunk and forced to be it), when he chose to open up to us, and
felt comfortable enough to do so. Compared to Jared, Jensen’s often more
like a closed book. He doesn’t wear his feelings on his sleeve. But
during the years, he’s opened himself up to his fans, and part of this
(Jensen mentioned a few years back) is because he became a father.
has said that the JIB con is his favorite con, and I think a part of
this is because he and Jared get to be around the rest of the actors for
multiple days (compared to Creation cons where they’re only there on
the last day) and because the organizer really looks out for them and
spoils them shitless. Some years back, there had been some issues at
Creation cons with Ty Olsson who’d said/done some things under the
influence of alcohol that had been inappropriate. Ty was then invited to
JIB con, and the organizer made sure he didn’t drink too much, so there
wouldn’t be any trouble. She looked after him and she looked after us,
So, back to Jensen. IF there had ever been a single
doubt whether or not the actors could control their alcohol consumption
and/or do their job properly, I’m more than sure the organizer would
have prevented it. However, Jensen is professional. He knows how to do
his job. And he wasn’t drunk. Do not belittle his emotions by blaming it
on alcohol! That’s disrespectful to a guy who embraces his fans and
loves them as much as he does!
J2 are in general more touchy feely when they’re at this con -
especially with each other. Jared has had several misfortunes around JIB
time. Two years ago, we nearly lost him, and Jensen knows this. They’re
best friends, they’re brothers - they look out for each other when
they’re so far away from their families.
Jared has often been the one to be open about his feelings. This time it was Jensen’s turn - and Jared was there for him.
panel was not uncomfortable in the slightest. It was a precious moment
that brought tears to my eyes, and I will not sit back and allow people
(especially people who weren’t even there!) to take that moment away
from me or - more importantly - to take that moment away from Jensen! So
can we please drop all the alcohol talk, and just love the man for
being honest with us and for loving us so much in return? Thanks!
