Recs for fiction with strong psychological overtones, please - not necessarily psycho to the point of madness (although always interesting) - and definitely not limited to the free-flowing angst that is sometimes Dean's (or teen-Sam's) internal, self-centered monologue.

Please rec (or self-rec) stories where the psychology of a character (or characters) is particularly effective, as a means of advancing the plot or illuminating the character in a new way. Yes, I realize that many fics have psychological issues as subtext, but I'd like to hear your takes on those stories that elevate it to a feature of the main plot/character - in a twisty or otherwise interesting way. (e.g., sandymg's wonderful One Small Step, in which Jared's Aspergers often drives the plot and the relationship)

NOTE:I chose a few tags from the 'Affliction' and 'Genre' categories as examples, but we're not limited to these. Also, no matter if story is gen or slash.

As always, thanks to the community for your inexhaustible expertise.

Read this years ago - long, plotty. Jared and Gen new to small town. Meet Jensen and Danneel at block party? Jensen is a photographer, gay, living kind of in the closet with Danneel (excellent relationship) to help raise their child (son?). Jared is a schoolteacher. He eventually realized his attraction to Jensen - acts on it when he and Jensen's friends go with him for his occasional foray to another town to a gay bar. They fall in love and I think Jared may be deciding to leave Gen but then Gen says she's pregnant. Also Danneel and Tom want to be married. Jensen decides he has to move away - goes to Los Angeles. He meets a man who is understanding about Jensen's love for Jared, they eventually marry. Takes a few years but there is a happy ending. I would love to read this again!

More detail: Jared discovers that Jensen is gay when he finds romantic/adult? photos of men in his rooms - he lives downstairs/separately in his house with Danneel. Turns out Jared's sister has disappeared on the streets, become a hooker taken advantage of by a photographer initially. Jared is horrified to think Jensen is that way too, Jensen eventually explains he's helping out these men by not being that way - and Jared finds out Jensen is gay. Much later, after Jensen has moved and gotten married, Jared asks Jensen to come take family pictures for the Padaleckis - something they haven't done since his sister disappeared. When Jared's brother (mother?) sees one of the photos Jensen took of Jared - just laughing, not knowing he's being photographed - they say "he really loves you."
1. Usually in J2 fics it is Jared who is all touchy-feely and outgoing whereas Jensen is shy and quiet. So, I am looking for fics in which Jensen is not so shy. I just read a story Five times two. You guys should definitely check it out (Be warned for homophobia and violence, though). In that story, Jensen initiates contact with Jared, makes pornographic sounds while eating cheese souffles, thinks about having his wicked way with Jared and does things like kissing Jared on his neck and calling him baby boy (while they aren't in a relationship). So, basically I'm looking for that kind of Jensen - toppy, outgoing and seductive. Please rec me some fics with toppy!Jensen?

2. I want drunk Jared or drunk Jensen texting or calling the other while drunk. I am kinda looking for crack but anything is fine as long as the boys are drunk. One such story for those of you who are feeling down today, A Cautionary Tale.

3. For my next request, I'm looking for fics with the boys going through character bleed. Y'know Jensen feeling insanely protective of Jared or feeling depressed after filming Sam's death scenes in Season 2 finale (and vice-versa).

Bottom!Jared only, please. Bonus points for non-AU but AU is just perfect as well. I welcome all kinks and self-recs are love. Just, warn me if there is homophobia in the fic you rec. I will still read it but, I just need a warning.

Finally, I am looking for new communities to join. I am new to LJ and the Supernatural fandom here. I also don't know how communities work (It took me a day to figure out Storyfinders). I am looking for communities which are updated frequently and in which I can leave prompts. I keep reading all these comment memes (I think that's what they are called) and I want to leave my own story prompt as well. I ship J2 and Wincest. But, I respect all other ships as well, as long as J2 and Sam/Dean are part of the community too. Please rec me some nice coms to join with a small description of the workings of said community. *puppy eyes*

Thanks in advance :D

I have been wracking my brain for days trying to remember the name of a fic I read probably close to a year ago.

All I can remember Is that Jared and Jensen were walking near the edge of the studio and they saw a girl they thought was a fan.  Jensen thought she was acting weird but Jared went up to her.  She ended up being crazy and thought Sam and Dean were real and that she had to kill Sam.  I can't remember if she shoots Jared or Jensen.  I think it led to Jared and Jensen getting together.
If anyone has any idea please let me know!!!

Also, I have been wanting to read something where Jared and/or Jensen likes/gets off on sam/dean and wishes they could act out some wincest with the other actor and the other finds out.  First-time sex would be awesome but I'm not picky.
Just no "wincestiel"  please.
Current Mood: excited
I'm looking for any fic where the J's suffer a bit of character bleed after death scenes...

like for example, 3.16 - No Rest For The Wicked - something where Jared has trouble getting back to himself after seeing Jensen laying there so bloody and torn apart.

(i haven't tried posting here for a long time so i hope i'm doing it right. xD)

I'm looking for a general sort of fic, about character bleed, if it exists ;

Some of the Dean/Sam bleeding through into Jared and Jensen, maybe to the point where they get together as Sam/Dean or themselves.

Or just Jared having trouble separating Sam from himself; ex : he thinks his wife Genevieve is Ruby and it scares him, runs to ''Dean'' or ''Castiel'', etc... Similar thing could happen to Jensen as well. (In the same vein, if Genevieve catches him cheating on her with ''Dean'' as ''Sam'' well, that might be interesting, Jared realising afterward what he's done and freaking out maybe?).

I don't mind the rating or the pairings, even if I have a preference for either Wincest or/and J2.

(It was a bit hard finding the correct tags... since I couldn't find one for character bleed. :/ )
