Big Bang 2008 - Jensen/Jared (RPS)

I'm sure you're all just as excited as I am by the idea of spn_j2_bigbang finally starting its 2009 round on Monday. So much work - writing, creating art, organizing the comm, betaing, etc. - went into what's going to be an awesome summer full of epic fic. In order to get in the mood, I bring you a small selection of of my personal favorites from Big Bang 2008. This list is not complete by far! Please feel free to rec me and everybody else your personal faves!

All of these are Jensen/Jared, lengths and ratings vary.


Relax, it's Just Sex by alwayseven (Jensen/Jared, minor Jared/Chad; NC-17; ca. 29k)
JDM.com is an amateur porn website specializing in the "gay education" of straight college guys. Jared's best friend Chad talks him into doing a couple solo videos to help pay his college tuition. What's a little gay porn in the grand scheme of things? And then Jared meets Jensen and everything changes. -- I thought it was perfect to start off with this fic since Jared and Chad together in porn is now practically canon. Bonus points in this fic: CMM is not a douche, Jensen is sexy, strong and confident and the smut is really fucking hot!

Into His Hand by drvsilla (Jensen/Jared; Adult; ca. 50k)
JR Ackles is a professional bullrider at the top of his game. He's got one thing on his mind: winning the championship belt buckle and the right to call himself the best in the world. His unwavering dedication and focus is finally put to the test in the form of JT Padalecki, an up-and-coming rider new to the professional ranks, who has his sights set on winning the PBR finals - and Jensen. Cowboys ride and get by on grit and tough determination - the question facing Jensen is if they have to do it alone. -- This one is probably my personal favorite out of my favorites. I could write an ode to it. The writing is beautiful and complex and the set up for an AU is something I've never ever seen done before: Jensen and Jared are Professional Bullriders. When you read, you can tell how well the author knows the sport. But all the vital information has been incorporated subtly, it never seems too much, nor too little. In the end, it comes down to a beautiful, complex tale of two dudes falling in love and their journey of accepting this and them. The best news: there's gonna be a sequel this year!

The Seahorse by memphis86 (Jensen/Jared, Jared/Chad, Jensen/Tom Welling; NC-17; ca. 36k)
Everything is going fine for Dr. Jensen Ackles, a successful 3rd-year resident in obstetrics and gynecology at Grace's Heart hospital in San Francisco. But when a 22-year-old art student shows up at claiming he's pregnant, Jensen is completely certain he's crazy. After a bunch of tests, a sonogram and a bizarre story about having invoked the wrath of a ram-headed Egyptian fertility god, it turns out that Jared Padalecki isn't joking: he really did get knocked up! And when Jared insists on having an OB-GYN of his own gender, Jensen's long stretch of successfully not falling for one of his patients is finally at an end. -- Mpreg. Yes, yes, I know, I know! Mpreg! There are about a million things you can do wrong with Mpreg and sadly I've read more bad ones than good ones. However, let me reassure you this is a good one. A brilliant one. It comes along without the usual clichés you'd expect, which makes it for a fresh, carefree and different Mpreg read. Watch out for this year's sequel!

Come Play With Me by lexzilla (Jensen/Jared; R; ca. 25k)
Film geek Jared Padalecki is almost living the dream. He's gone from excitable horror-convention-going fanboy to hot new cult film director in just five years. Now he has the budget, the studio and the stars. All he still needs to do is convince long forgotten B-movie actor Jensen Ackles that he wants to play the leading man in more than just his new movie and then it really will be 'happily ever after'. Of course, in life, just like in the movies, true love never runs smoothly. -- The author really means it when she calls Jared a fanboy. After fulfilling his dream of working with Jensen Ackles, Jared and Jensen are forced to go through a painful up and down on their way to happiness.

Yes Sir (I Don't Mean Maybe) by hkath (Jensen/Jared; R; ca. 24k)
The path to parenthood is full of complications for Jared and Jensen, who are forced to take part in a trendy parenting class to improve their chances at adoption. Can they survive encounters with obsessive tabloid reporters and nosy talk-show hosts, handle the needs of a very special robot and resist the gravitational pull of the small planet called Vin Diesel? Will they come through unscathed and unscarred on the other side of this story? Will there be schmoop? -- A wonderful mix of schmoop and humor. I nearly peed myself from laughing so hard a few times. Jensen and Jared have beautiful and realistic relationship with ups and downs. This fic will make you fell good. Promise!

And Her Lips Were Cherry Red by jeyhawk (Jensen/Jared; NC-17; ca. 46k)
After separating from his lover of five years, psychic Jared Padalecki finds himself at loss for what to do, but a plea from help from the FBI turns his life around and soon Jared and his estranged lover find themselves knee-deep in mystery, murders and ghosts with a very real threat towards their lives hanging over their heads. Can they unravel the truth before it's too late, or will their separation turn out to be of the terminal kind? -- A fascinating, well-plotted crime/noir AU that will keep you to glued to your computer screen until you reach the familiar THE END. The initial UST between Jensen and Jared will about kill you, just like real love tends to do.
