J2 RPS pretend couple story with Neil Patrick Harris  

Mods, I hope I tagged it correctly now. I tried it on the laptop this time but I'm not sure what I did wrong the first time. Please tell me what is wrong about the tags if its still not right.



Hiya,



I'm looking for an older story and my memories of it might be a bit sketchy.



Jared tries to land a role in the new movie Neil Patrick Harris is making but the man will only hire him if he is gay(?)I think he only wants someone that knows and supports the gay community? This is where my memory fails me. So Jared asks Jensen to pretend to be his boyfriend. He does so reluctantly. This works and Jared lands the role.

There is also scene in the story where Jensen hosts a poker game where the admission is the script of a movie or play. Everyone brings a script from a recent audition, the worse and idiotic the script the better. It was a longstanding tradition that Jensen now continues.



Rings a bell? Does anyone know the title or writer or even a link?

Thanks!

Don't have a link but I'd love to read the story too, it looks great.
Hope you manage to find it.

Oh my god I think I've found it!
Could it possibly be this? (Just judging by the summary I haven't read it yet)

Summary: Struggling straight actor Jared is up for the part of a gay character in an independent movie and asks for his friend Jensen’s moral support when going in for the audition. Craziness and plot twists ensue from there.

It is! You are beyond amazing!
How did you find it?

Glad I could help :) (and that now I get to read the story too)
I'm not really sure how I managed to find it actually. Guess I put my dubious google-fu skills to a good use for once :) I'm so glad it still exists though. So many good stories are disappearing from LJ lately.

Yes, its so sad to find loved stories gone. And I don't really get it either. Even if the writer has left the fandom, those fics don't bother anyone.
You can just as easily leave them up and forget about them. No need to distroy a good story

Some of them were taken down for personal reasons so I guess I get it but I'm still sad to see them gone. More so when most of them still seem to disappear 'just because'.
