Notes: This was a request from @sassyspn67. I decided to make it into a mini series with a couple of parts so I hope you enjoy part one! Request are still open guys so ask away.
The request was:
Sassyspn67: HEY I LOVE U, AND YOU BLOG AJDKDJSK So I was thinking maybe one with Jared Padalecki where the reader is a youtuber like David Dobrik, with blogs and stuff (if u dont know him i would kill u, and the u would have to watch him) and he just can’t stop watching her, so he tweets and ajkdnxjdind. This would be one where he is divorced (i love gen 💖) and bakdhakxnid. Ps: but seriously, watch david dobrik vlogs now 🔥 I DON’T EVEN KNOW IF REQUEST ARE OPEN AAHHAHAHSHDUSHDHKSFOSNFJ *dies*
Happy wouldn’t be the word to describe how Jared was feeling, it was too simple a word. He was enveloped in complete euphoria, he was ecstatic, the muscles in his mouth never stopped forming a smile. Any mention of your name made him forget every worry. Your voice made him feel safe during the scariest moments of his life. How he wished he could to talk to you.
But then again, why would you wanna talk to him? You were 26, he was 34 and he had a gut feeling you wouldn’t like him because of the 8 years age difference. That’s what he told Jensen and Misha anyway.
“That’s was… poetic” Misha said. Jensen was quiet while processing the information his friend had just told him. Something wasn’t clear still, “So she’s a YouTuber?” Jensen asked, the two other men nodded.
“And you love her?”
“No, I-I don’t love her… I like her, there’s a difference” Jared clarified quickly. Misha took over after his friends began staring at each other awkwardly. “So you don’t think she’d want to talk to you?”
“Well, yeah, there’s an eight ye-”
“Just talk to her” Jensen interrupted, “it’s been 2 years since Gen and you have gotten a divorce. I think it’s time for you to find someone new and by the looks of it you have. If she’ll make you happy, talk to her.”
Jared rubbed his hands over his face, he knew Jensen was right. “How?” he asked, willing to comply. The three sat there thinking of answers, nobody had actually thought about it. “Twitter” Misha stated, as if it was obvious “You could tweet her saying something about her most recent video to get the ball rolling.” Jensen agreed saying it wasn’t a bad idea so Jared picked up his phone to open twitter.
He tapped the button to compose a tweet but froze once it popped up. “What’s wrong dude?” Jensen asked when Jared hadn’t moved in a minute. “I can’t do it” Jseed decided letting his fears getting the best of him. Before his friends could say anything Jared left Misha’s trailer.
It’d been a couple of days since Jared had talked to Jensen and Misha and he’d been nothing but stressed. The directors weren’t extremely worried about his condition because they could actually get something done for once. However, Jensen and Misha were. At lunch they decided to take matters into their own hands.
Jensen Ackles: Hey @Y/N, I heard @jarpad wants to talk to you. He’s a bit nervous though…
Y/N L/N: Is that so? Sup @jarpad. What’d you wanna talk about?
Jared Padalecki: @Y/N, nothing, I don’t know what @JensenAckles is talking about. Sorry for bothering you.
Y/N L/N: Oh… it’s fine @jarpad
Jared, though pissed at Jensen, immediately felt bad about dropping the conversation. The one chance he had to tell you how he felt. And he ruined it.
“Oh… it’s fine @jarpad” you tweeted. Well, you got your hopes up for nothing but you were still giddy. Big name actors never tweeted at you just because. One question kept running through your mind: why would Jensen tell you Jared had to talk to you? Padalecki said he was just joking but something tells you that wasn’t true. A notification popped up on your phone.
Jared padalecki mentioned you in a tweet: Actually, @Y/N…
You opened your phone to read the full tweet.
Jared Padalecki: Actually, @Y/N I wanted to tell you that I really like your videos, they’re hilarious and entertaining. Plus, you’re beautiful.
Did he just say I was beautiful? You thought. You get that type of thing from fans all the time but coming from the Jared Padalecki made it special. You were so busy in your own that’s that you almost forgot to respond.
Y/N L/N: Thank you @jarpad! That means a lot to me. Ps you aren’t too bad looking yourself ;)
That’s when your phone erupted with notifications from twitter. Your friends David, Liza, and Gabby were freaking out, as per usual, you knew they were gonna tease you about it later. Ship names for the two of you were already surfacing from your fans’ minds. Honestly, you thought it was cute. As to be expected, there was a lot of hate too but it didn’t bother you too much. You’re just delighted to know Jared Padalecki’s got a crush on you.
