Brand New Colony, Jared/Gen, by sagetan for spn_j2_xmas
You guys, it is ARRANGED MARRIAGE IN SPACE. There is no way that I could possibly not love this. It's a few snapshots of the beginning of Jared and Gen's relationship, when they're still awkward and feeling each other it. It's as adorable as can be.
A Castle for Two, Jared/Gen by Chash for the hurricane charity auction
I asked Chash for a fairy tale AU, and she delivered a delightful one. In order to rule her kingdom, Princess Gen needs to find a prince to marry. Her trusted tutor/adviser/friend Jared assists her on this quest. There's curse-breaking of various sorts, a variety of secondary pairings (including one with Osric!), and various not-too-scary shenanigans. Just delightful.
And getting these both in the same week make me think of the state of things a year and a half ago, when there were maybe five Jared/Gen fics in existence and three of them were porn. I am so tickled that it is actually a thing people write now, and not even always for me!
(Speaking of, forget not genteensybang! May there be many more lovely Gen-centric fics to come.)
