before it's taken down.
I've spent the holidays devouring this amazing fic (more like a book).
Title: To Dream, Perchance to Live
Pairing: Jensen Ackles/Jared Padalecki
Word count: 161,744
Warnings: Dream violence, angst
Summary: Jared Padalecki is a Dreamer—a person who can insert himself into other people's dreams and manipulate them. While asleep, he can watch other people's fantasies, steal their secrets, and change their minds... all without their knowledge. For eleven years, he's been owned by Lumoinnovations, a powerful corporation that will stop at nothing to increase their influence and market share. Jared is their secret weapon, kept sound asleep and forced to Dream with people tricked into sleeping nearby while his handlers watch. When his latest assignment goes terribly wrong, resulting in the death of the subject, Jared is discarded as useless, left for dead in an alley.
He is found by Jensen Ackles, a man who is struggling to get over a failed relationship and who has almost given up hope of forging a true Bond with anyone. He has known Dreamers in the past, but none like Jared, who begins to heal under Jensen's care. When Jared truly wakes up for the first time since he was a child, it is Jensen who helps him find his way. They grow close as Jared gains confidence, and life is good... until Lumoinnovations discovers Jared is still alive and decides they want him back.
For hurt!Jared fans it's A MUST READ (though Jensen gets his share). The author has created an incredible world and the relationship between Jared and Jensen is to die for. There's action, mystery, intrigue, love, hurt, comfort, hot sex... it has it all. It's also wonderfully structured. It's very long (yay!)... but it's a page turner. I thoroughly enjoyed it.
The reason I'm reccing and not at spn_littlebro
is because the author has a note that it will be taken down soon. There's a PDF available so I would suggest that if this sounds like your thing grab a copy before it's removed.
