reel life & real life

anonymous asked:

(Don't publish this if you don't want to cause it may cause some chaos) - I know people shouldn't ship real life actors who already have significant others but Harry's response to people shipping him with Matt was pretty telling. He's too invested in coming across as straightTM. His strong reaction made me as a member of the LGBT community feel a bit uncomfortable. So maybe that would explain as to why he's the one who seems to be failing in connecting with people during intimate scene?

Since I don’t know what he said about people shipping him & Matt together I can’t comment on that. I’m also a member of the LGBTQ community and I can honestly say I find it rather off-putting when fans ship real life people because too often those fans blur reality and fiction and they assign attributes from their favorite characters onto the actors who portray them. 

I would hope that whatever his personal feelings on people shipping him with Matt (which I can’t lie, it might make me feel uncomfortable too because it’s discounting the very real fact that he’s happily married) that it wouldn’t affect how he played the more intimate moments between Magnus & Alec. With all that said something is causing the emotional disconnect. What that is or why it’s happening I don’t know.

When shit don’t add up, its time to subtract yourself.

Could you recommend some fics with Jensen trying to woo Jared (and hopefully succeeding) please? I find that trope so adorable.

Jensen woos Jared fic recs

sorry for the very late reply nonnie!

Honey Flower, Apple, and Lime  The year is 1855. Jensen is the scion of a wealthy Dallas family, heir to a ranching empire that stretches across the American Southwest. Until now, he has led a life of carefree abandon, charming his way into boudoirs and out of entanglements by dint of his silver-tongued wit. After his father’s sudden death, Jensen is sent to London by his stepmother to acquire a wife during the Season. Threatened with disinheritance should he make an unsuitable match, he arrives on the doorstep of his friend Welling’s household prepared—reluctantly—to do his duty.  Everything changes, however, when he lays eyes upon the Wellings’ newest footman. Padalecki is tall, strong, intelligent and beautiful—everything Jensen admires in a man. From the moment they meet, Jensen is willing to risk everything to gain the gorgeous Texan’s love. But Padalecki wants nothing to do with Jensen … or does he?

Silk and Steel  As a child, Jared was gravely injured defending a young member of his pack against a poacher. Now, he walks with a severe limp in human form, and cannot run and hunt with the other wolves in his pack. He long ago accepted that he would never mate or have a family of his own. When the pack’s alpha dies without an heir, distant alpha relatives come in from out of town to compete for the title of pack alpha. One of them is Jensen Ackles. When he sees sweet, dimpled Jared, he falls hard, but Jared knows his place well. He gently brushes off all of Jensen’s attempts to woo him, reminding Jensen that he owes the pack a strong, healthy mate, not a gimpy omega. Jensen makes it his mission to convince Jared that he’s the perfect mate for the pack alpha, and that he’s worthy of everything.

To Kiss the Sweet Rose College AU: Jensen’s been in love with Jared almost as long as they’ve been friends, but he’s given up all hope that Jared will ever feel the same. So when someone Jared could fall in love with approaches him for advice on how to win Jared over, Jensen finds himself in over his head.

The Courtship of One Jared Padalecki or How Jensen Ackles Drives Men to Sexual Deviancy  Jared and Jensen go on their first date. And their second. And their third. Jensen’s a gentleman and Jared wants to change that.

The Courtship of Jensen’s Co-Star Somewhere in the time between a handshake and a hug, Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki went from being reel-life brothers to real-life best friends, and complete strangers to cosmic soul mates, no rhyme or reason to it that either of them could ever see. Jared was everything Jensen was not: friendly, funny, and full of life; one in six-point-whatever billion the Earth’s population currently stood at. Life was awesome. Work was amazing. Everything was fine until Jared kissed Jensen. Everything was peachy until Jensen fell in love. With desperate times unexpectedly calling for desperate measures, Jensen called Chad Michael Murray for relationship advice – because being in love led to temporary insanity obviously – so it really didn’t surprise him that he couldn’t seem to win when it came to wooing Jared. Still, Pisces must’ve been in a really good place in the night sky or something because suddenly, right smack dab in the middle of the miserable courtship of his co-star, Jensen discovered that maybe loving Jared was all he needed to do to win his heart. And luckily for Jensen, loving Jared was also the one thing he did best.

They Met At The Photo-Op Booth, Jared Padalecki is from a small town in Texas, has just graduated high school, and works at the only bookstore in town. He saves up six paychecks to buy a ticket to a convention three hours away, where he’s got a photo-op with actor Jensen Ackles. Jared expects thirty seconds of embarrassment only to find Jensen’s number slipped into his pocket. [Completed, sequel pending.]

Blush And Bashful Jensen’s new favorite hobby is making the bookstore clerk blush.

I’ve Got Your Number Jared is a submissive kind of guy who just can never catch a break because of his size and boisterous personality. Cue Jensen who is more than willing.

Don’t Judge a Book Jensen is a were, Jared is human. They fall in love and not everybody approves.

For the First Time  Jared is insecure about his dragon form because he’s about half the size he should be, while his human form is normal. He joins a dragon/human liaison team and meets Jensen, and that’s when things start to change for him.

What is your all time favorite J2 non au fic? Favorite au fic? Favorite J2 fic in general?

oh goodness 💕

my favorite J2 non-AU fic is @qblackheart ‘s The Courtship of Jensen’s Co-Star ✨ it’s been on my “I need to reread ASAP” list for, what feels like, ever, but I want to dedicate all my time and energy into rereading it, not tired-eyes-at-2-AM. it’s absolutely wonderful and here’s a little bit about it:

The Courtship of Jensen’s Co-Star by @qblackheart

I can’t give enough praise for this story, but I’m probably going to do another long rec when I eventually get around to rereading it 💕💕💕

my favorite J2 AU story is (this is so hard, I have so many and if you want a list of fic recs, just let me know) either Underneath it All or Fucking Kodiak, Alaska

Underneath it All by @ashtray-thief

Jensen Ackles was always good at acting, pretending. So good in fact that he is the FBI’s favorite undercover guy. He has more undercover operations under his belt than he’d like to remember, and after his latest stint with a ring of human traffickers he really thinks he deserves a break. Unfortunately there’s a new criminal organization on the rise, and all attempts to infiltrate and take down the Padalecki family have failed so far. Which is why Jensen finds himself faced with a new assignment, one that no other agent qualifies for and that he really doesn’t want. Because trying to seduce the most powerful man in the Chicago underworld? Not really high up on his list.

Fucking Kodiak, Alaska by Xenodike

After having an emotional and physical breakdown and trying to get away from a dysfunctional relationship, Jensen finds himself staring at a stuffed and mounted bear standing in a tiny airport terminal on the on the other side of the country. Jared, self proclaimed cocky asshole and sporting a fantastic manbun, takes pity on him, expecting a thank you orgasm before they go their separate ways. Turns out, Jensen’s not half as broken as he thinks he is. A large fluffy dog and a little help realizing his prostate is in fact not defective, goes a long way. Jared is a lot more broken than he’ll admit. Jensen takes him on a journey of learning what it means to have someplace to call home. Throw in a lot of plaid, flannel shirts, a tiny log cabin, a horrendously ugly, moldy RV, a weather-beaten bar, fantastic wildlife, spectacular nature and a hillbilly shithole in the middle of nowhere.

Rating: Explicit; Word Count: 70,016; Warnings: Implied Child Abuse

my favorite J2 fic in general is probably The Courtship tbh, but my current obsession is this:

Not the Desperate Type by @guestwho

Jared’s party-animal reputation gets him accepted into the notorious Alpha Epsilon Pi house (or as they call it, APE) easier than a game of hopscotch - but what he doesn’t expect to find there is someone who totally harshes his vibe: Jensen Ackles; a prude with a stick up his ass the size of Texas.

Rating: Explicit; Word Count: 16,484; Warnings: Drug Use, Homophobia

I also consistently reread these two stories:

Miles to Go by @dollylux

As Jensen’s assistant, Jared takes care of him at work. As a man in love, he can’t help that he wants to wrap him up in a warm blanket and take care of him in every other aspect of his life, too.

Rating: Explicit; Word Count: 8,176; Warnings: None

And When We Kiss by grace_fully

Jensen is not amused by the the tall football douche who sits in front of him in organic chem. In fact, he prefers to torture him whenever possible.

Hi there! I love your blog!! I'm new to the J2 ship (I was at MinnCon so of course I hurled myself onto that ship real quick like) and am looking for fics based around past cons. If you have some recs or could point me to a specific tag that would be amazing!!

Hi, darlin’!  Thank you so much <333 I’m so glad that you have found my blog and the lovely ship that is J2 and I am extremely envious that you were at MinnCon aka the reason I’ve been having a breakdown for the last few days!

I have found a few fics focused on past conventions, but first I am going to rec to you:

The Courtship of Jensen’s Co-Star by qblackheart

This fic is a classic in the J2-world.  It’s a non-au and is perfect for someone just getting into this ship.  This is the fic that has inspired many to ship J2 which is part of the reason I’m reccing it now :)  

Now, onto the convention-based fics!

Real Slow by deirdre_c

The stripteasing on stage at conventions is a joke, until Jensen gets drunk and sends a private video to Jared. Then it’s not so funny anymore.

Based on: PhxCon 2015 and SeaCon 2015

I’m With Stupid by dolavine

At the Aussie Con in 2009 Jensen and Jared auction off signed and designed shirts for charity.. Misha signs Jared’s shirt and Jensen gets jealous at the spectacle Misha makes of it.

Based on: AHBL 2009

Private by Ygrawn

Jared’s always had the power to do that to him, to make him forget anybody else exists.

Based on: AHBL 2009

The Eyelash Effect by runedgirl

First, it is not normal for a guy to reach over and tenderly brush an eyelash from the cheek of his best friend. Second, it is not normal not to have realized this a long time ago.

Based on: a story at a convention, but I’m blanking on that specific rn 

Serendipity by privilegedesire 

Serendipity: the effect by which one accidentally discovers something fortunate, especially while looking for something else entirely. Jared lives and learns.

Based on: a general convention

A Family Reunion by morganaDW

It’s convention time in Las Vegas and Jared’s getting sick. When he over does it on some meds while Jensen’s at Cabaret it’s not just Jensen that helps take care of him as both Jensen and Jared learn that they never outgrow even the concern of TV parents.

Based on: VegasCon 2015

Well Suited by paperstorm

The Payley Convention made for a long day; it drains Jensen. Jared kind of enjoys the opportunity to take care of him.

Based on: PaleyFest 2011

Reality Check by morganaDW

When a joking question at a Supernatural convention about the height difference between Jared and Gen comes up. A mock kiss on stage takes both Jared and Jensen by surprise and both men make some choices that doesn’t come to a surprise to others in their lives.

Based on: a general convention

Meanwhile, Down in the Green Room by Callisto 

By the time Jensen gets to the Green Room, it’s all over. Jared’s had his shoulder reduced right there on the floor next to yesterday’s crab cakes (so much for only his fucking elbow, Daniella), Osric’s looking shell-shocked, and the big guy is up in his suite on “bed rest” for the remainder of the day. Which, yeah, that’ll work.

Based on: JIBCon 2014

The Day Twitter Blew Up by morganaDW

It should’ve been any normal J2 day an VanCon until Jensen decides to do something that not only shocks those closest to him but also his fans. Then it’s a matter of reassuring Jared that it’s a good idea when he worries about how Twitter and their fans will react in the long run.

Based on: VanCon 2014

The Play Nice Proviso by qblackheart

When Jensen Ackles first met Jared Padalecki, it was most definitely not love at first sight. It wasn’t even like at first sight. In fact, Jensen hated him, and he had a few good reasons as to why. So what if his new co-star was oblivious to his one-sided warfare? Jensen could deal. Apart from when he couldn’t. So when it came down to picking between Padalecki and his peace of mind, the choice seemed clear. Except for the fact that The Network had his balls in a vice, leaving him stuck with Supernatural, stuck with his idiot co-star, and worst of all, stuck with a ‘Play Nice’ Proviso added to his contract. Well, he could play nice. He would play so nice that the world was going to think that he and Jared Padalecki were the bestest friends in the history of best friends. It was unfortunate then that no one had ever told Jensen what happened when an immovable object met an irresistible force; no one had ever thought to mention that there was a thin line between hate and love; and nothing, absolutely nothing, could have possibly prepared him for Playing Nice with Jared Padalecki.

Based on: all of Supernatural (there are convention scenes within it)

Sorry this took so long!  It was a lot harder going through my read fics and finding convention-based ones than I thought it was going to be.  I hope these are good for you though!  If you ever need any other fic recs, my inbox is always open and I know so many others would love to help you out as well.  Welcome to the world of J2!  You won’t regret it <3
