Looking for a fic I read years ago but can't remember the name.

In the story Jensen lives in a small town and owns a traditional cupcake shop. Then Jared moves into town and opens a new funky cupcake shop across from Jensen. Business rivallry ensues until I think Jensen is in danger of losing his business. Can't quite remember how it ends but I think J2 get together in the end. Would love if someone could help me find this.

Gabriel comes in to pay for his fancy car Dean fixed and pretends to talk on the phone to impress Sam and then Sam gets super pissed because he misses his class. Gabriel is a baker and Sam works at a bar

I'm searching for a J2 story I read on AO3 not too long ago. In this AU, Jared and Jensen have children, but were freshly separated due to Jared cheating. It's implied that they had been having issues ever since the birth of their second child: Jensen's work schedule being a big part of the problem.

Jensen is bitter and wants a divorce, and although Jared breaks things off with his lover, he doesn't want the divorce he's doing his best to reconcile without forcing the issue.

Jared returns to school to become a baker and eventually opens a shop. A couple memorable scenes:
1. Jared's lover is injured in an accident of some kind, and Jensen has the misfortune of having to stitch him up. The guy (who is shown to have feelings for Jared) tries to bait Jensen into fighting him, but Jensen resists the urge to punch his face in.
2. At some point Jensen brings their kids to Jared's new bakery and meets a classmate of Jared's. He becomes sullen and jealous, forcing Jared to confront Jensen about his double-standards.
3. Jensen starts dating again, but it's not serious. At some point their son wants to go to a cabin for his birthday, and the new bf suggests to come with, but Jensen vetoes it based on Jared's negative reaction.
4. When one of kid complains that Jensen doesn't make peanut butter sandwiches "right", he calls Jared who shares his secret and it turns into a touching moment.

I believe it is a slowburn story in which they get to relearn each other. They date again, and eventually end together again after some major revelations are made (about a miscarried third kid)

I hope this rings a bell to someone. I've been searching for it for too long.

FOUND: Thank you!

I read this a few years ago & now can't find it anywhere. It had something like 78 chapters, so it was pretty long.

Jensen is something to do with the DA's office & Jared is either an alcoholic or a drug addict. Although J2 are old friends they're not paired with each other. The pairings I remember are Chris/Steve & David Boreanaz/Emily Deschanel. There were tons of other pairings.

Chris & Dave are cops & Steve is a baker. Basically there's a serial killer couple out there & eventually Jared falls into their hands. Chris gets shot at the end, protecting David because Emily's about to have a baby.

Just about everyone is in the story - JDM, Misha, Tim Hutton & many more.

I think the story may have been deleted, but hope not.

I read this author's fics awhile ago on archiveofourown, but I can't remember the name of the author. I've tried the tags in ao3, the computer's history I was using at the time, google, and I still can't find it

I know the author wrote a Destiel fic about how Dean and Castiel are figure skaters. When Lisa, Dean's skater partner, gets pregnant, she can't compete in the Olympics with Dean. Castiel, who has trouble keeping skating partners, joins up with Dean. Castiel and his mom who is his agent ( I think) are wealthy while Dean who takes care of teenageSam isn't well off. Castiel is aloof. I remember that he and Dean had an argument about what time they should practice. Cas wanted it to be too early and Dean a little later than Cas.

Dean eventually manages to get Cas out of his shell by getting out more often. I remember that on one ocassion Cas got on top of one of those fake bulls and got a bruise or something. In the fic Figure skaters have this unwritten rule between them about not having romantic relationships between skating partners because it could lead to trouble.

The author also wrote a Dean/Benny fic in which Benny is a baker.

I think the writer allowed only users of ao3 to see her/his fics, but I'm not sure.
Thank you!

So this fic was posted on tumblr and ao3 last year and I recently found out the writer had deleted her tumblr and ao3 accounts. It was called "the perfect bite" by Cherry_delicious. This was the summary...

"Renowned food critic Dean Winchester is notorious for giving harsh reviews, relentlessly in search of the perfect bite. His quest ends unexpectedly at a bakery owned by pastry chef Castiel Novak, who wins not only a rave review, but his heart."

If anyone has this fic saved anywhere please
let me know.

Thank you!

Hi friends,
I am really craving for AU fics with baker (or chef) Dean/Jensen in them.I am not after stories where Dean or Jensen cooks or bakes for someone particular , but for those where they are professionals with bakery or restaurants of their own. I have read the bakers tag of [livejournal.com profile] j2_recs and have also read some previous searches in this community.

Can you please rec me your favorite fics with baker/chef Dean or Jensen in them? Any pairing is welcome as long as it has a happy ending.

Thanx a million

I haven't really read much J2 over the last couple of years but I have nothing to do over the Easter long weekend and I feel the urge to get back into it.
So I'm looking for AU fics where the boys don't know each other at first, have some sort of cute meeting scenario and then the whole dating/getting to know you fiasco hopefully leading to hot boy sex.
I've read some fics where one works in a cafe the other frequents or bakery or bookshop, or they run at the same park so something along those lines that is just sickeningly sweet and fluffy. Something that could be sold as a romantic comedy with two adorably awkward, dorky boys.
Any of the usual CW cast as sidekicks is a plus.
I feel that I've exhausted the highschool/college fics but if you rec something that fits the promt I won't be devastated.
Thanks heaps and happy Easter! xx

Hey all, I have been looking for these stories and haven't been able to find them, hopefully someone here can help me.

#1 Jensen was abducted as a child, I don't think there was a ransom demand. The FBI saves him, but he looses his memory of the event, the only thing he remembers is getting a mouthful of brains when an agent shoots the bad guy (I'm not sure if he actually remembers that part). Years later Jensen is in college and goes around blowing random guys, that is how he meets Jared. He also doesn't talk, or at least not very much. He teaches kids to paint on Wednesdays?

#2 Jared is in the woods (I'm not sure why) he drops his knife, it is a knife his brother gave him before he died, I think it was in a box, that might be why he was in the woods I'm not sure. Jensen lives in the woods in a cabin, Jeff brings him groceries, and that is all I remember.

#3 SPN is over, Jensen became a race car driver, but not a normal race car driver on a track, it was on roads and they were very windy and dangerous, someone who helps with the race is killing the drivers

#4 Dean thinks Sam is dead, he lives with Lisa and Ben. Sam works in a bakery and wears an amulet to change his appearance.

Thanks in advance for any help and Happy Holidays

EDIT: All four found. Thank you to everyone who helped :)
Hi guys,

I'm looking for a couple of fic:

1.) SPECIFIC: It's a were AU I believe. I remember that Jared was doing an internship/starting a new job at Jensen's company. For some reason Jensen invites Jared to stay at his house. I think Jensen was dating Daneel (?); Jared walks in on them at some point. During one of Jared's morning runs he comes across a white wolf (Jensen) and when Jared tells him about the wolf Jensen says he should be safe and the wolfs won't attack him. And I also remember a conversation between Jared and a butler/servant by the pool (?), where the the servant says something like, when Jensen told you you're safe from the wolfs they won't harm you... Ring any bells? I would be grateful, cuz there are so many were fics on J2 recs and I don't want to look through them all :-)

2.) SPECIFIC: My memorey about this story is very vague. Steve was the owner of a book store or maybe coffee shop/bakery, I believe he was living above the shop. But it's not the story where he is dating Chris; I think Chris wasn't even in the story. Jared is new in town and he somehow meets Jensen. At some point they are sitting in Steve's coffe and Steve serves them Irish coffee, or he asks for Irish coffe??? So yeah, that's all I can remember; hopfefully I'm not confusing two stories. Thanks for any suggestions, cuz I know it's not a lot to go on! FOUND!


3.) Didn't get any results the last time I searched for those, so here we go again:
Are there any fics out there with the Js as scuba divers/scuba instructors? Or maybe the winchester boys doing a scuba curse, either case related, or just for fun during vacation?

4.) Also, I was rewatching Battlestar Gallactica lately and I'm wondering if there are stories out there based on the series, especially stories that deal with them as academy pilots so Jensen= Lee and Jared= Kara or vice versa???

As always, thanks for your awesome help in advance!
03 July 2013 @ 12:49 pm
I was wondering if you guys could help me to find those two AU fics I read a while ago and couldn't find again.

1. alpha!beta!omega!fic where J² meet at a family reunion or something (they were cousins, I think). Jared was a teen and Jensen a couple of years older. They met and knew they were mates. Basically a PWP with that bit of plot. It was a short fic, max. 3000 words. Oh yes, and Jensen runs a flower store in that one. And Jareds grandmother was the one who knew what's happening when all the other were just like wtf...
That's all I remember...

2. A very shy Jensen stalks Jared and leaves every day baked goods on his doorstep. Jared wants to meet and thank him, but Jensen runs away. In the end they get together, but Jensen has a hard time with people he doesn't know. There was also a very protective Chris...

Any hints would be really really awesome!!!
Thank you guys :)

Ok guys, I just read a bunch of fics that I felt did not give Dean his due. So I'm looking at all you Dean-lovers out there and asking you to rec me some serious Dean-appreciation fics. More specifically, I'd love to read fics like:

1. Smart!Dean Destiel fics. Most smart!dean stories I read are gen, but I'd really like to read Destiels that have this aspect of Dean mentioned. I hate reading fics where Dean is written as the dumb jock to Castiel's (and Sam's) nerd. I don't care where it's set, and I'm not even looking for fics where his intelligence is the main point - just fics where Cas (and Sam... and everyone else, really) acknowledges how smart he is.

2. Dean having a job that requires high qualifications. Like, he's a doctor, or a professor, or an engine designer or a Secret Agent Man. I'd especially love it if he doesn't seem like it, and people are really surprised when they find out.

3. Also, I'd love fics where Dean is a pre-k or elementary teacher. Or a baker or chef... because a man who knows how to cook is hot. Especially pie.

And really, any and all fics that you think properly appreciates the awesomeness and beauty of Dean Winchester - I'd love to read them!

No Wincest please. Destiels only. Thanks!
I'm pretty sure Jensen is in witness protection and he has a shop of sorts? And Jared has a chocolate/bakery? I think Steve has a music shop and Chad owns a new age shop, sorry details are a bit murky. Jensen doesn't realise that Jared, Steve, Chad etc are undercover cops (checked J2 Recs under Undercover cops but couldn't see this story).

I'm gonna turn 20 tomorrow, and I thought I might celebrate leaving my teen years behind with a bunch of Dean fics. Hopefully, I'll be lucky and get lots of recs :) Some of these are actually regurgitated versions of my old searches, but I wanna see if I can get new fics outta them.

1. Smart!Dean is canon to me, and I love reading fics that have this. School fics would be awesome - high school or college, I don't mind either way - but this sort of fic can be set whenever and wherever.

2. Considering up top, I have a hankering for Destiel fics where Dean is practically cliche. You know the type - smart, popular, awesome, kind... an amazing older brother. I only ask that he's not an asshole, since popular!Dean is sometimes written as that.

3. Fics that basically have the world finding out just how important to the grand scheme of things Dean is - and I'm talking Messianic connotations here. Fics that grounds in the fact that a whole lotta extraordinary things (even by hunter standards) seem to revolve around this BAMF. Outsider POVs are loved.

4. Related to #3 - any fics out there that deals with how the supernatural world views Dean. Like how his soul was shining brightly even when the Pit, or how some angels consider Dean damn near holy.

5. Stories where Castiel, through his own ignorance to social norms or maybe a lack of faith in Dean's own commitment, cheats on him. AU or canon, I just wanna read fics where Dean is the one who wants to commit, and Cas is the one who screws up. Happy endings, though I want to read guilty!Cas and hurt!Dean.

6. Rockstar or celebrity AUs where Dean defies stereotype. Destiel please.

7. Girl!Dean fics are loved. Especially irresistible, totally aware of her own hotness girl!Dean. I would really prefer Destiel, but this is also the only way I'll read Wincest, so I'll accept those too.

8. Chef!Dean, or maybe baker!Dean. IDK, just want to read fics with him like this.

9. Michael!Dean? Not fics where Dean says yes to Michael, but fics where he was Michael all this time. Oh, since I'm on this anyway, any fics out there where Dean is actually God or something, or his vessel.

10. This one is the orange in a bushel of apples - I'd love to read fics where Dean has both younger brothers with him. Like, it can be from Adam's POV, or even just fics where he has a brotherly relationship with Dean.

** If there's a pairing, Destiel is my OTP ^^ No Wincest recs please, except for #7.

Whew! That was a lot, and I don't know if I'll get any bites, but I can hope! So please, make this birthday girl's wishes come true, and rec me some Dean fics! :)

I'm looking for a specific fic, and to be honest, I think it's a sequel to a story (but I'm not positive).  All I remember is that Jared was an amazing baker, specializing in cakes.  Jensen's parents/family kept asking Jared to bake all these cakes/cupcakes for different occasions/people and Jensen felt like they were abusing Jared.  Jared only kept doing it because it was Jensen's family and possibly that he wanted them to like him.

In the end, Jared and Jensen move away to California. 

Does anyone recognize this story?

This was a AU J2 Fic. I think Jared was an actor/model and Sandy was his girlfriend who was trying to get into the acting business too. Jensen was a baker or a chef and he was with a really abusive guy, maybe Jeffrey Morgan or Chris. Sandy told Jared she had accepted the offer to be on this reality show where they switch significant others for a certain period of time and they are filmed, 24/7. Jared and Jensen meet, and Jared finds that Jensen has zero self-esteem and he dresses baggy to hide himself because his boyfriend is emotionally and verbally abusive. They get closer and really like each other and end up having sex; I think Jensen was the bottom. The show cancels their episode and they think its because of them, but in reality, Sandy cheated on Jared with Jensen's boyfriend and the show found them first. I think Jared planned on leaving Sandy for Jensen and vice versa with Jensen leaving his boyfriend, but Sandy told Jared she was pregnant and made him give her the apartment and recommendations so he and Jensen could keep the baby when it was born. I don't remember anything after that. 

If any of you know this fic, please let me know. Thanks! ;)

I'm looking for a fic in which Jensen is either an engineer or an architect who is trying to build a condo/apartment thingy and Jared is part of some food co op/community garden that will be shut down if Jensen gets the community board members to vote for his building. As an agreement Jensen works with Jared in the garden for sometime and they end up together. In it Jared is a chef I believe and ends up in cooking school in either the epilogue or sequel. Please Help!!!
1. Specific Fic: I think the Apocalypse was over but there was still things that Castiel had to do in Heaven. He asked Dean to wait for him I think and so Dean does. While doing so, him and Sam settle down in a house they fix up somewhere. Originally Dean has his own room and starts decorating "Castiel's" room how he thinks Cas might like it. He ends up sleeping in there and finally moves in. I think Sam tells Dean he is nesting or something. Also, Sam meets a girl and tells her all about hunting. They are both sad for Dean because Castiel is away for something like 5 years and Dean is lonely and misses him.

2. Any fics where Dean and Sam and/or Cas settle down after the Apocalypse or they just decide they're done and settle down permanently somewhere. Bonus points if Dean is really good at the "apple pie life." Destiel or Wincest.

3. Any fics where Dean and Sam and/or Cas stop hunting and settle down and Dean ends up being a great cook and cooks for them or buys a restaurant or bakery or something. Destiel or Wincest.


If you know any fics like this that you know of, I'd really appreciate it! Please and thank you! :)

Heya folks.

I'm looking for a few things... I'm putting a few under cuts to protect the young and elderly among us. ^_^

1) Any insanely sweet and sappy and mushy fics. Wincest/J2 please. I'm talking things like "As This Sunset Turns To Morning" and "Reinventing Love" and "Disclaimer". Stories that just kinda make you want to believe in love again, you know? Longer is better, but a sugary-sweet one-shot makes my day too. ^_^

Ohh... kinky! )

3) Creature-boys. I've read a whole slew of werewolf fics, and I've dug into the creature-tag on J2 recs, but thanks to an egg-preg fic I saw on here earlier, now I've got a craving for creature-boys. :/ Anyone got some to rec??

4) Snow-fics. We're having a 'delightfully' warm winter here (Seriously. 70 degree weather. In JANUARY!! /o\), so I'm craving some cold, snowy boys. Again, any pairing except Destiel works here. ^_^

5) Cooking and/or Gardening fics. I have precious little of this. The boys as chefs/bakers/caterers.... just cooking in their own kitchen in their own time. Same with gardening. They can be gardeners, landscapers, just taking care of their own gardens, working in a nursery, I don't care. I want some dirty boys playing with plants. ^_^

I'll stop now. Thank you all in advance.

Hey guys, I'm looking for a fic where Jensen bakes and he makes a gingerbread house and a gingerbread Jared who comes to life.
He makes Chad as well but that kinda goes wrong.
I think Chris makes an apprearance too.
Any help would be great.
