This fic got started literally five years ago. unperfectwolf told me to write her a fic where Jared and Jensen were dating, but not. And then I realized that That Picture where Jared and Jensen are gazing at each other so adoringly was taken on the set of Hookman. Four episodes into filming and that was how they were looking at each other.
Five years of starts and stops and twenty-five thousand words later, I finally have a Big Bang out of it.
None of this would have been even remotely possible without my favorite Life Ruiners, my Chat. Among the enablers that have helped are:
gigglingkat (who, for once, did not break my fic);
And, of course, none of this would be remotely possible without spn_j2_bigbang, or the insanely patient mods running it, wendy and thehighwaywoman.
