Summary: After an exhausting day of work, nothing beats a long, relaxing drive – and it’s something that Jensen and Misha have come to depend on throughout their years. The road seems to open up just for them, warm and welcoming – listening to all their frustrations and laughing with all their jokes. And if it were not for the metal and tires between them, it would see every kiss and grazing touch, too. The road can lead them as far as they want to go, calming the men’s nerves with every mile driven; and usually these adventures will result with them lazily trekking over forgotten Canadian countryside until they finally decide to turn back, returning to the chaos of the stages … but this time, things don’t turn out that way. This time, everything happens just a little differently.

Summary: “Jackles.” Jensen hummed as he took a bit out of his food. Misha smirks and throws a wink at Jensen. Jensen responds by poking at his side. “You’re professing your love to me.” Jensen started coughing. He wipes his mouth with a towel as he swallows the rest of his food. He looks at Jared who just shrugs. “What?” Misha handed the open script to him and pointed at the script. Jensen read it once, twice, maybe even a third time.His eyes widen comically. “Why?” Misha stared at him curiously. “Have you not seen how we look on camera?” Jensen had in fact seen how the look on camera. He tried not to. He tried to suppress whatever feelings he had, after all he was married. Happily married. It wasn’t his fault that Misha was one of the few people who still found way to amaze him every day. Or that his eyes were so intense that half the staring that happens isn’t intentional. He tried to suppress this all before, but it hurt Misha. It hurt their friendship, so Jensen hid it as best he could. He stares down at his plate, messing with his food. Jared picks up the script and looks at it as well. He smiles. “Well it’ll make the fans happy.” Misha nods. “Come on Jensen, what’s the big deal?“

Summary: Destiny is like a symphony: melodies intertwining, harmonious then distorting, building up and crashing down, sometimes quiet, sometimes overpowering with intensity, only to finish in a beautiful climax. In hindsight, that pretty much captures Jensen’s and Misha’s whole life from kindergarten through school, college, and adulthood. In hindsight, it all makes sense. But in hindsight, you always know better.

Summary: Jensen was cast on the set of a TV show called Yearly Divide a season ago. It’s been good so far; the cast and crew are nice. The work hours are brutal but fun. They have banquets of food in the tents. And his checks would make an A-list celebrity’s mind explode. That is until he gets the script for the first episode of the second season: Ben gives a warm but wary gaze to his long lost lover Marc Jones. Jensen gulps once and slowly moves his eyes to the character list to see who is playing this Marc Jones person – Misha Collins, it reads.

Un Ballet de Débuts (A Dance of Beginnings)

Wordcount: 40k
Summary: This is ‘a’ story of Misha and Jensen. It’s told through snapshots of pivotal moments beginning the day on set in 2008, and traverses milestones in their eight year dance of friendship, partnership, struggles and joys, to see how they arrived where they are today. Though threaded together, each chapter could also stand alone. They are intended as emotional polaroids capturing conversations and experiences, explored via alternating POV’s depending on whom we felt would be best to tell each occasion through. It begins with first meeting, and covers beginning crushes, declarations, fights and reconciliations, all within a polyamorous framework.
