...Frozen Ocean is one of them! I was terribly honored to work with the divine kelleigh
for this year's spn_j2_bigbang
! We haven't worked together before--always wanted to--and I was not even the slightest, teensiest bit disappointed. She's a devoted, incredible author who writes involved, passionate fics. She works her buns off, lemme tell you. And it shows. I cannot recommend this fic hard enough.
It's got gorrrrgeous, otherworldly Jensen ... pining, heart-broken Jared ... reunions, mystery and fight scenes ... seriously, I could see it unfolding like a movie.
Okay, enough gushing. We've gotta post, and I'm the one dragging ass, as per usual. SO! With no further ado:Fic title: The Frozen OceanAuthor name: kelleighArtist name: quickreaverGenre:

Three years ago, the world lost one of its heroes. Jensen Ackles, known to most as ‘Reactor,’ gave his life to save thousands, perhaps even to save our way of life. Jared Padalecki was there that day, amidst the ruin and rubble of battle, holding Jensen in his arms as he died. In the aftermath, as society mourned the loss of their superhero, Jared buried his husband on a quiet Texas hillside.
Now, Jared’s living as a shadow of his former self, unable to move beyond his loss, when the arrival of a strange object from deep in outer space sets in motion a series of events that challenges everything Jared thought he knew about Jensen’s past and hoped for their future. From old friends showing up at his door in Vancouver to a secret military base in the middle of Texas, Jared will go and risk everything, including his own sanity, to get Jensen back. But is Jensen still the same man he loved for so long, or will Jared lose him all over again? This time, the battle isn’t about saving the world - it’s about saving what they had.FROZEN OCEAN at AO3( Art under cut. SPOILERY AND A WEE SPOT NSFW!Collapse )
