Summary: Life on the streets has honed Jared's reflexes and his poker face, taught him when to run and when to stand his ground. He's learned how to fight for what he wants and how to fight to keep it. Not much of this matters when he's recruited into a clandestine organization of gentleman spies, one that operates independently and above the law. He's transported to an isolated training facility, where old habits must be torn down and new ones formed, all under the watchful eye of Jensen Ackles, a twenty-year veteran of the organization and Jared's self-appointed mentor. Jensen is reserved, restrained, a gentleman in every respect, as comfortable brokering back alley deals as he is rubbing elbows with foreign diplomats. He's also lethal, knows how to take out an entire room of trained fighters and never even break a sweat. When a few missions go south unexpectedly, Jared and Jensen start to harbor suspicions, suddenly sure of no one except each other.

And this was a pose Riyku really wanted; can't say as I blame her! I mean, COME ON. YUM. :D I didn't have a specific photoref, but many, many bits and pieces went into this. I'm kinda proud of myself because I don't imagine poses well AT ALL. So yeah, it might be a little wonky here and there but that's a-okay with me!
