Right where was I? Oh yes Congratulations to Jared and Genevieve on the announcement of the bump, yes Gen is pregnant and let there be joy unconfined, another little baby moose in the world!
Then of course it set me thinking, I know never a good thing. I thought about what I scribble, and is it right that I have two very heterosexual men in a gay relationship?I have this wobble with every important milestone they reach, getting engaged, married and now one of them is about to become a daddy. I wondered if I should desist from these scurrilous meanderings (I always knew that bloody dictionary would come in handy some day).
Which led me to look at my hard drive and when I finished whimpering I discovered I have.......
A partially written chapter 17 of the fic O doom
A partially written chapter 5 of Acolyte0301.
Three partially written (getting the theme here) fics set in the 'real' world
Plus one finished fic which has gone to my long suffering beta.
Now I considered this and my options, should I henceforth abandon all Jared/Jensen fics? but could I do that to the extraordinarily patient people who have stuck with my scribblings? No I'm not that egotistical, but there have been some very patient people out there.
Then I thought maybe I should limit myself to writing Only Supernatural Gen stories, or even AU's? Alternatively I do have a Dean/Neal pairing I could dust off.
I considered writing Jensen slash someone else, first of all there was Jensen/ Christian Kane..... and when I came round, and got off the floor, the pairing really had merit....a lot of bloody merit actually.
Then there was Jensen/JDM....and I.....errrr.....I......hang on Jeff's a daddy isn't he??????? hmmmmmmmm
I could stick to my R/L AU's, but then what about my bracelet verse? I've some stunners developing in that one, including Jared looking after Jensen after his recent bout of directing.
Then it struck me I have a load of ideas both AU and R/L, the one bouncing around my bonce at the moment concerns a prompt I saw somewhere, and the bloody thing grabbed hold of my ankles and won't let go..... Jensen is a fan of True Blood and likes the idea of being bitten.......cue Jared getting the make up guys to make him a set of fangs and surprises Jensen with a possible costume for Halloween. I see Jared stood there sharp suit, black shirt, smiling at Jensen and revealing his 'fangs'. Followed by a lot of wall slamming, manhandling and throwing Jensen over his shoulder and carrying him up stairs to ravage him. I even had a couple of titles, Fangs for the memory or Trick or Treat (look I never said they were any good did I *G*) I suppose I could write it as an AU......but
Oh bollocks....I'm screwed aren't I? that's it I'm going to have to start looking at the property listings in Special Hell, I wonder what the Condos over looking the lava pits cost.
But I'd miss 'my boys' and they are my boys, they aren't meant to be the real Jared and Jensen they are my interpretation of them.
As a wise woman once told me, that what I write in the Real Life Slash situation is a form of AU, there are no wives and the boys are gay . I'm thinking of taking the view that at some point our universes split, and that one went off down the wrong trouser leg of time (Thank you Terry Pratchett) and yay verily, and one pair of pink glasses later hey presto!
I can't help but be worried I don't want to offend anyone, but I do enjoy what I do. It looks like my disclaimer is going to have to change, and grovelling will be the order of the day. But you never know, after the news it maybe the J2 fandom just dwindles away, and I'll be writing for myself and the odd piece of tumble weed blowing across LJ. But you know what, I don't mind I'm still having fun,and if there is the odd soul who wants to read my scribblings then all the better.
In the words of another hero of mine Mr Billy Connolly, Gentle readers don't worry I'm the one who's going to hell, you were just watching me and coming along for the ride *G*
