fic: tell them we're like magnets (j2, nc-17) - master post  
Title: tell them we’re like magnets
Author: _mournthewicked
Pairing: Jared/Jensen
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 83,000 (No, really.)
Warnings: The usual overabundance of schmoop and a healthy dose of teenage angst. Also: meddling big brothers, grumpy RA’s, and horny upperclassmen.
Disclaimer: This is all a figment of my overactive imagination.
Summary: The story of Jared and Jensen's life together reads sort of like a fairytale. Come on, childhood friends growing up and falling in love? It doesn't get much sweeter than that. But now their perfect summer has ended, and it's time to go off to college. They're more than ready to tackle this new chapter of their lives together, but deadlines, scheduling conflicts, and epic misunderstandings threaten to make the journey harder, and the outcome uncertain. The boys soon learn that not everything comes easy, that sometimes just being in love isn't enough, and they find themselves struggling to keep their grip on what matters most - each other. (Fifth installment in the reinventing love ‘verse. Previous reading is highly recommended.)

Notes: Written for spn_j2_bigbang. There are long, rambling notes at the end but I have to give a massive shout out to my amazing beta, kamikaze_redux. She took it like a pro. This whole massive thing is dedicated to her and finn21 because they are just plain fabulous. Be sure to check out the awesome art by twofourteen.

I think I've been embarassingly vocal about my love for this 'verse (hence the fact that it's 5 a.m. and I'm posting this comment) but I just wanted to say OMGYAYYOUPOSTED! I can't wait to read this! (Though I HAVE to - ARGH - since I'm about to pass out - haven't slept yet - and when I wake up I have a doctor's appt and then I have to clean my apt. like crazy! Why is that whenever you REALLY want to read something you're super busy?)

Yes. There is one. I made it up just then.

Chad is best at it, though. No one can do air humping quite like The Chad.

OMG! I'm flailing already and I haven't even read it! It's been torture all day knowing it's been up while I've been at work. I've been trying to think of convincing illnesses so that I could go home since to read this. Sadly, I did not think my boss would think that taking e a day off to read to read amazing schmoopy porn was an appropriate excuse to skip out on work :) *runs off to read*

I read this story so many times. As you are well aware. And I contest that any mistakes that might have been left behind were intended by the good lord.

I will tell you that this installment is no less than amazing. All of the twists and turns, situations, and emotions were spot on. I give massive props to you and your awesome. Well done.

Samspnfreak15 on August 18th, 2009 07:52 pm (UTC)
The funniest thing happened when I went to read this. I saw there was more in this Verse so i went to go read the earlier things first, and then I realised i had already read them all like months ago, and Just didn't pay attention to the titles.

All in all, I am very excited there is a new instalment of this and I can't wait to read it!
Ochie: thumbsupimprinted_soul on November 15th, 2009 09:12 am (UTC)
just finished reading this whole in over three days and oh my GOD. seriously, it's like fucking brilliant. and somehow this whole thing had like everything i love like randomly going to your childhood playground and sitting there and waiting. and talking. and the whole coffee kink because coffee smells so, so good seriously:P and god, this thing was amazingly written and while it has distracted me from getting much work done over the past three days, it's been awesome reading it.

Carly: Dean - Sangryjeriicho on March 15th, 2010 11:26 pm (UTC)
There totally needs to be podfic of this done. I have 'we must reinvent love.'

Also, I am completly and totally in loe with this fic, and come back to read it again and again. If I'm feeling down this is my pick-me-up.

Read all the previous parts of this verse at once! Whew. Guess I like it :) Seriously, the story is very sweet and the relationship lovingly portrayed. It's been a pleasure to read this. Will save this part for tomorrow (or later today as it's already 3 am!)

Okay, hello! I made this account yesterday, and I have never used livejournal before, and I have become used to the simplicity that is Tumblr, so please forgive me if this comment turns out wonky for god knows what reason. I made it because (1) I'd like to learn how to post on here and (2) I figure you deserve some feedback (you're practically the only fiction writer I'd been reading for a while... There's no need for anyone else!). Your stories are just fantastic. Anyway! I'll get around to doing a proper review at once, but I really just stopped by to ask something... While reading this, Jared goes to work at Ed's. Now, I hadn't made the connection at the time, but then I saw on your profile that you live in ~Sacramento~ and later on in the story you give the full name Edwin's. Now, I live in Rocklin, and (literally) 2 minutes from Edwin's Coffee & Tea. I'm just curious... is that your inspiration? Or am I totally crazy and there's another Edwin's someplace else runned by a guy who wears a kilt? (BTW -- if it is the same place, I think I spend half my money they. Ughgugh)
miss california._mournthewicked on March 1st, 2011 09:15 pm (UTC)
Wow. That is indeed my inspiration. I live right by Ed's and I work in the same parking lot. Small world. o__O
eyesmadeofcoal on March 1st, 2011 09:20 pm (UTC)
I connected the dots last night and I was like "...No way." Haha, that's crazy! xD
miss california._mournthewicked on March 1st, 2011 10:00 pm (UTC)
That's awesome! I actually wrote a good junk of this fic AT Ed's. I'm a regular in there. So Jared needed a job and I thought, hey, why not here? XD

I'm in there all the time. Like I said, I work in the same parking lot.
eyesmadeofcoal on March 1st, 2011 11:23 pm (UTC)
What if we've seen each other and we didn't even know it? This is one of the most bizarre things to have happened to me in a long time. I drive past there every morning on my way to school (I'm a senior at Victory. Ooh~ Continuation School kid~*~) I'd get into like, detail of where I live but I'd rather not post that for all to see. Let's just say I reside within walking distance. c:
miss california._mournthewicked on March 1st, 2011 11:26 pm (UTC)
Ha! I went to Rocklin. My brother graduated from Victory. I live within walking distance of Ed's too. I live at the top of the hill right there.

eyesmadeofcoal on March 1st, 2011 11:31 pm (UTC)
asdklkslkguvmd I live a bit farther away than you. Ummm... I can I say this conspicuously... I live on the same street as Antelope Creek Elementary School. I'm a block away from Quick Stop. I think that's semi-specific enough xD

I just... This is so weird. Do you know how many times I've met someone who's from here? None. Not once. And you're so close. Whoaaa.
wolfrider89: J2 twizzlerwolfrider89 on April 15th, 2011 10:10 pm (UTC)
Just finished the PDF of this, after reading everything that came before it, and I just had to stop by and tell you how much I LOVED it before I go on to the timestamps and stuff. Just... wow. I was reading it on the subway, and I couldn't stop grinning! People might have been giving me odd looks, but I didn't notice, because I was so caught up in the story.

The angst tore my heart apart, and the schmoop made it all better again. James/Misha must be my favorite side pairing ever!

So yeah, off to read some more! Thank you so much for the awesome!
