His ensuing existential crisis culminated in him dropping out of college and moving out to L.A. on a whim. He wasn't expecting to cross paths with Jensen again, but that’s what sends his life veering into romantic comedy territory. Because it’s not Jensen that he wants anymore. It’s Misha, Jensen's eccentric and gorgeous yoga instructor roommate, that just might end up being Jared’s happy ending.

Jared is a human transfer student (something of a rarity) and immediately attracts the attention of both Misha and Jensen, much to the whole school’s interest, because everyone knows not to get involved with the Ackles-Collins rivalry. Jared, however, has eyes only for Misha, but soon finds himself torn between the two most desirable guys in school all while struggling to keep his grip on reality as his brother spirals into danger and his parents battle for equality… and Jensen and Misha have their own history…

Title: Stargazer

Genre: RPF, AU
Pairings: Jared/Castiel, initial light Jared/Sandy & Jared/Genevieve
Rating: M
Word Count: 60K.
Warnings: Sexual content, some angst, light swearing, and Chad Michael Murray.
Summary: Many stories have one single starting point. Whether it is a “Once Upon a Time” or an “In a Land Far, Far Away”, it is still a solid starting point and is universally recognised as being the beginning of something. This story does not have a true beginning; after all, it is difficult for a story which spans over many, many years, including magical beings for which time is meaningless, to have a single beginning. It has many beginnings. For the purpose of beginnings, however, this story begins with a six year old boy and a young, fallen angel. It begins as all proper fairytales should; it begins with a wish, a shooting star and a boy who never stopped believing in the magic. This is the fairytale of Jared Padalecki and his fallen angel. And not all fairytales have happy endings.

Summary: Jared's being doing this great white wereshark gig for twelve years, his whole, sad life guided by two basic principles: 1) The shark's stupid and 2) The shark needs to be contained. These principles have led to the creation of Jared's systems, which include things like 'reduce stress' and 'do not invite chaos.' But that's before Misha-the-shark-scientist tags shark-Jared for research and confuses human-Jared for a poacher. With Misha disrupting his carefully ordered existence, Jared struggles to hide the truth ... and to keep himself from reenacting Jaws.

He likes to work from home, okay? Jared had no idea what he was in for when he stepped into Parlor, looking for help. One thing is for sure though; it wasn't soul fisting.
