Goodbye May Seem Forever
Jared/Jensen (also some Jared/Sandy and Jensen/Danneel)
Adult, ~36,400 words
Jared and Jensen have been best friends since second grade, together weathering school work, girls, puberty and their burgeoning sexual identities all under the radar of Jensen's disapproving parents. They swear they'll be friends forever. But forever is a long, long time and time has a way of changing things.
Written for j2_everafter and loosely based on The Fox and the Hound.

ETA 11/10/11 - The wonderful applegeuse has recorded a podfic, which is available for download over here. Love love LOVE.
Underage sex (participating characters are both 16). Violence and graphic language surrounding homophobic themes. A contrived and unoriginal plot, two-dimensional villains, a couple gratuitous sex scenes and true love. Also, Chad Michael Murray.
My eternal gratitude goes out to wendy for her extensive and wonderfully honest beta and to fayemeadows for not only her continual encouragement despite her own life explosions, but also for letting me steal one of her childhood stories for my own devices. And, of course, to maichan for creating some of the best pieces of art I've seen in this fandom ever. [WARNING: Link is mildly spoilery for the fic.] I only wish this story could do her art justice. Seriously. Even if you don't read this or do read and don't like it, do NOT miss out on her art. Unless you hate yourself, in which case I can't help you.
As always, these characters are not mine. I do not own or even know any of the names herein and do not hold any claim on the original story of The Fox and the Hound. This is all done in fun.
