Author’s Summary: Jared Padalecki is a Dreamer—a person who can insert himself into other people’s dreams and manipulate them. While asleep, he can watch other people’s fantasies, steal their secrets, and change their minds… all without their knowledge. For eleven years, he’s been owned by Lumoinnovations, a powerful corporation that will stop at nothing to increase their influence and market share. Jared is their secret weapon, kept sound asleep and forced to Dream with people tricked into sleeping nearby while his handlers watch. When his latest assignment goes terribly wrong, resulting in the death of the subject, Jared is discarded as useless, left for dead in an alley.
He is found by Jensen Ackles, a man who is struggling to get over a failed relationship and who has almost given up hope of forging a true Bond with anyone. He has known Dreamers in the past, but none like Jared, who begins to heal under Jensen’s care. When Jared truly wakes up for the first time since he was a child, it is Jensen who helps him find his way. They grow close as Jared gains confidence, and life is good… until Lumoinnovations discovers Jared is still alive and decides they want him back.
Author’s Summary: There’s something wrong in Red Haven Hospital for the Criminally Insane, but no one’s going to listen to a psychopath like Dean Winchester.

Author’s Summary: Following a failed apocalypse, Dean nurses Sam through his addiction to demon’s blood, which has driven Sam to horrific things.
Author’s Summary: After Sam pulls Dean out of Hell, Dean stops talking. It takes a week for Sam to convince Dean to open his mouth so Sam can check that his tongue hasn’t been cut out. It takes two weeks for Sam to accept that Dean really isn’t talking. Then it takes a week of silence, the two of them sitting in the Impala like ventriloquist dummies, sitting in motel rooms like human taxidermy, before Sam decides to start talking for the both of them.
Comments: Ugh this one hurt. But so so good. Sam will just make you sob, but I also really loved how in spot-on Dean’s characterization was— without even any words! And the way Sam just yo-yo’s between being depressed, to determined to fix it, and then pissed, and then guilty for being pissed, and then right back to desperately hurting is just so in character and also just so achingly perfect.

Author’s Summary: As they start filming and working together, Jared realizes Danneel’s prediction was right. He and Jensen do hit it off. Sure Jensen is quirky and sometimes (okay, a lot of times) uncomfortably direct to the point of being rude. But once Jared figures out Jensen isn’t actually mean as much as he’s just a little clueless (and mostly unconcerned) about the rules of social interactions, it stops bothering him.
Author’s Summary: The way of the wolf is simple. When a new Alpha takes over a pack he kills the offspring of his predecessor to secure his own lineage. As a werewolf, Jared knows all about the way of the beast. But when he lays eyes on the youngest son of the alpha he just dethroned, Jared throws the rules of the wild out the window to follow a very different instinct.

Author’s Summary: Except for the fact that they were both born with remarkable superhuman abilities, and a seething mutual dislike, Jared and Jensen have nothing in common. Turns out, though, that they may also be the only ones who can save each other from themselves.
