The Courtship of One Jared Padalecki or How Jensen Ackles Drives Men to
Sexual Deviancy by
Adorable, adorable, adorable. Total warm fuzzy fic. You'll find
yourself all: You go, Jared! You go, tiger!
As part of Operation: Get Jensen Naked, Jared
decides that he's going to cook everything for the picnic himself. Fried
chicken, coleslaw, potato salad, the whole thing. It takes hours and by the
time Jared's finished, he's covered in food, sweating profusely and cursing
Jensen. He even makes chocolate fudge brownies from scratch. No, not from
the box scratch, real from scratch with flour and sugar and cocoa powder and
a whole lot of profanity, mixed with love.
Your ass better be worth all this work, Ackles.
The Jared Padalecki Untitled Project by esohpe. I was reading this
until 6 a.m. one morning and it was the greatest RPS of my life. I
was linked to this eons ago but it sort of got shuffled to the back of my
mind, and then I was doing my thing where I'm randomly rereading Evil!Sam
stories and was poking through her journal and remembered that this existed
so I clicked. I thought it'd be a good story as I really liked her Evil!Sam
story, but I didn't expect to be like, causing myself bodily harm with the
mild flailing and having to squeak into my fist. (Yes, I have physical,
violent reactions to good story, but I am a tough customer and you have to
I like stories with longing and desire and *yearning*, and this story just
had it in crazy spades. The build-up was everything I could have asked for,
and I just can't remember being quite so satisfied with an entire story in
The only thing *wrong* with this story is that there's no Jared POV, which I
think I would sell unimportant bits of my soul for, but that is neither here
nor there. (And don't get me wrong, having it purely Jensen narrative was
the right choice for the story and the reveals along the way, but now that
it's done with, I'm just saying. Jared during the chair scene or the party
or the initial movie selection process would be - I'll stop now.) Moving on.
Also note: Issaro also did a podcast of it, and
podfic's just not really my thing but I can pretty confidently say that
it'll rock. I know we were all enthralled listening to that calm, lovely
voice reading WILDLY inappropriate and terrifying things that I found for
her to read at Slumber Party, and if she can
make that story bearable, she'll make this story even more beautiful.
In sum: this is the kind of story that can turn a girl into a tinhat. Guh.

Dean remembers Texas as blackland stretching in
marker-thick strips of vivid brown and black, broken with the sprawling
metroplexes of Dallas and San Antonio and Houston; farms spread with the
yellow tops of maize waving in pre-autumn winds, threshers moving
complacently through the fields with drowsy men in hats waving at the road.
He remembers green and gold fields dotted with cows, half-year calves

that that is love.

gleeful that minds in our parts work like this. There's this parallel

characterizations were wonderful, and it's her first story in the fandom.
