Title: Shades of Gray (and Little White Lies) sequel to The Colors of My Life my 2013 Big Bang
Author: tcs1121
Artist: bflyw
Pairing and Characters: Jared/Jensen, Christian Kane, O/Cs and mentions of Misha Collins, Mark Pellegrino, Rob Benedict, and Aldis Hodge
Rating: NC17 (brief)
Word Count: ~25000
Warnings: Jensen has a permanent, progressive medical condition that can cause blindness: Degenerative Myopia
Disclaimer: Untrue story. Character names used without permission. No money changes hands.
Beta: disneymagics who went above and beyond the call of beta. Thank you, my dear! I would not have written this without your enthusiasm and encouragement and it would not have come out half as well without you.
My First Reader: Special thanks to kee for giving this her once-over. My heart would have a difficult time posting without her name on it somewhere. Thank you, missy.

A/N (1): This is a sequel to my Big Bang 2013 The Colors of My Life and I highly recommend that you read that first. I love that story, and I think you will, too. (Sammycolt24's art alone is worth the click.) There was an issue of trust between Jared and Jensen that never got resolved, and it always bothered me. So, seven years later, I finally got to fix it. (Or did I?)
A/N (2): Written for the SPN-J2-Big Bang 2021. Thank you to wendy and any helping Big Bang Mods for pulling this off so well every year.

Summary:
Renowned "blind" artist, Jensen Ackles, brought on Jared T. Padalecki as his apprentice to carry on his work should his eyesight eventually fail. Under Jensen's tutelage, Jared has grown as an abstract impressionist artist in his own right and is about to go on tour with his art. While he and Jensen have developed a strong emotional, artistic and physical bond, there was a past issue where Jensen made an unfortunate choice. He accused Jared of betraying him to the press. Something Jared did not do. He has begged for Jared's forgiveness, and Jared is trying, but this may be an obstacle too difficult for him to overcome.

2021 Big Bang

The 2021 Big Bang is under way! There have already been some fantastic stories posted and, considering how long this fandom has been going, that's a wonderful accomplishment! Go! Click the link and read!

I am pleased to say that I have another contribution to the cause. :-)

On July 27, the last day of the challenge, my story will wrap up this season. I will be revisiting my 2013 Big Bang The Colors of My Life. There was an issue of Jensen accusing Jared of betraying him that I have always wanted to resolve.

And so I have.

Or have I?

Tune in, July 27.

We Made it Through the Rain, Epilogue

Title: We Made it Through the Rain
Author: tcs1121
Artist: bluefire986
Characters and Pairing: Jensen/Jared, Felicia Day, DJ Qualls, Chad Michael Murry, Misha Collins, Osric Chau, Jim Beaver, OCs
Cameos and mentions: Genevieve Cortese, Rob Benedict, Alona Tal, Aliana Huffman, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Bryan Norcross
Rating: NC-17
Genre: J2 AU, hurt/comfort. Timestamp to my 2019 Big Bang Marconi Plays the Mamba. This timestamp is pure, self-indulgent, Jensen hurt/Jared comfort.
Word Count: ~30,120
Beta: kee, who understands me and makes me better. Cheers to us, bb!
Warnings: H/C with an NC-17 rating (and some humor)

Disclaimer: Untrue story. Character names are being used without permission. No money changes hands.


A/N 1. I suggest you read Marconi Plays the Mambafor the full context. It's a fun story. Some of the early dialogue is straight from Marconi, but this story is from Jared's point of view.
A/N 2. This is Jensen's rescue plus the four-month recovery/rehab left out of the original story. It is all Hurt!Jensen/Caring!Jared all the time.
A/N 3. This timestamp begins during the storm, seconds before the defenestration. I can't help it. I love that word and I probably won't ever be able to use it in a story again.

Summary:
"I get congratulated for every little, normal thing, like getting toothpaste on my toothbrush instead of all over my clothes. I get recognized and thanked a dozen times a day, but Jared, you know what? I don't feel strong or brave, and I sure as hell don't feel lucky. I feel damaged, like, everywhere. Every piece of me is moving in a way that hurts. I don't deserve their appreciation, I don't want their platitudes, I just want to be normal and not broken all to bits."
