Title: Dead Like You
Fandom: CWRPS
Pairing: Jared/Jensen
Rating: PG-13
Summary: Jared sort of figured that death would mean a change in location. He just didn't think he'd have to move to Los Angeles and start working as a grim reaper. Every day, he and his colleagues (Jensen, Misha and Genevieve) meet up at the Bavarian Waffle House to get their assignments from their boss, Loretta. After a rough start, Jared and Jensen just click - and decide that there's really no reason for dead guys to play by the rules. They have questions, and a road trip to Texas might help them get some answers.
While this fic is based on the premise of "Dead Like Me", it's not a retelling. This universe has its own rules and its own story, sprinkled with occasional references to the source.
Word Count: ~ 33,000
Warnings: Things that come with the territory: mentions of pain and illness, a few gory details, character death. Neither of the Js is any deader in the end than he was in the beginning, though.

A/N: This was written for the [livejournal.com profile] spn_j2_bigbang challenge, and I'd like to thank the mods for doing an amazing job as well as my artist, [livejournal.com profile] vengefuldemon69, for being so excited about the fic and making stunningly beautiful art for it. Go right over to her journal and leave her some well-deserved love.
Most importantly, though, I'd like to thank the wonderful [livejournal.com profile] meiou_set for being the best beta I could hope for. She helped me, challenged me, supported me - and she sure knows how to crack a whip. Thank you so much.

Your opinionz are always of great importance, but seriously: no pressure. I know you have a plate piled higher than Jared Padalecki :)

But don't forget to make some time for staring at photos of Jensen Ackles' ridiculously pretty face. This is of great importance as well. Every time you drool over Jensen, Dean Winchester saves a puppy.

Yes, well, I do stare at my own journal often, as I told you previously. I've also contemplated a picspam of our dear man, but haven't had the time to focus on it. He's much too distracting.

LOL Thank you for the visual, it's very adorable (like Jensen).

I REALLY want to do one of Monster Movie, but my friend still has S4 and I'm annoyed with her, and she constantly bails, so Lord knows when I'll get it back :(
