You know there are those really great books and fics you've read that completely blow your mind at how awesome they are? Yeah, I just finished reading one yesterday, and I can't get over how great it was. It was just so real and beautiful and guh. I loved it. The characterizations, the dialogue, the emotions. It's so good.
If you're okay with rps (real people slash), then I definitely recommend mediaville's "Lost and Found." It's AU (alternate universe) so you don't even have to know anything about the characters (Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles, the lead actors of Supernatural) before reading it. It's just so well-written and wonderful, I couldn't stop reading it even though I had a whole bunch of stuff to do yesterday.
So yeah, check it out!
Title: Lost and Found
Warnings: Self-esteem and weight-related issues.
Word Count: 47,000
Disclaimer: None of this is true.
Summary: Jensen Ackles is a shy, overweight songwriter whose body issues have prevented him from forming any real personal connections, and at thirty, he’s still unsure of his sexuality, and still a virgin. But when he signs up for an experimental obesity research program, he meets Jared Padalecki, a stunningly sexy fitness guru who slowly but surely changes Jensen’s life.
“They don’t mean to hurt him or judge him. They love him, he knows it. They just want better for him, and it’s impossible to forget that when he sees them face to face. So Jensen’s made excuses to get out of birthday dinners, family picnics, even holidays. He keeps up with everyone via email and the occasional phone call. It’s just easier that way.”
