Disclaimer: Look up fiction in the dictionary. You won’t find a picture of this story, but the definition of the word ‘fiction’, which this is.

Summary: In high school, Jared Padalecki had it all. He was surrounded with rich, famous, beautiful friends and partied with young Hollywood's elite. As if all of that wasn't exciting enough, he used the tricks he learned from his grandfather to become an amateur sleuth with his billionaire best friend, Jensen Ackles, playing the role of trusty sidekick. But when he got in over his head and lost everything he once held dear, he knew that it was time to move on. That was ten years ago. Now he lives the lonely life of a hardboiled private investigator on the streets of Manhattan, and his fabulous past is nothing but a distant memory. That is, until a tragedy forces him to return to California and the world he left behind. Between juggling rabid paparazzi, sarcastic detectives, and a spurned ex-best friend, it's a wonder that he can possibly find the time to solve a murder that has left the city of angels reeling.

Notes: This was written for spn_j2_bigbang. There are long and rambling notes at the end of the story, but I have to give a shout out here. If I'm this story's mother, then woodstarling is the surrogate and kamikaze_redux is the midwife. This story simply wouldn't exist without them. ♥ Also, I did a lot of research for this story, but I am by no means an expert in being a cop, private investigator, or a member of the Hollywood elite, so forgive me any inaccuracies. I'm proud of this one, and I hope you all like it. Don't forget to check out woodstarling's absolutely incredible art.

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.
