One For the Good Guys
Jared would find him napping later. After a while, instead of complaining about it, he started finding exciting ways to wake Jensen up. Splashing water on him was obvious but produced a furious-wet-cat effect that Jared never got tired of.

HA! Just picturing it, I'm not sure I'd get tired of it either, and I can imagine his glee at devising new methods of torture. I loved the first chapter, it really set the stage.

Thank you! I'm glad you enjoyed the fic.

I love this Jensen sooo much and your Jared is just lovely. Thank you so much.

Thanks so much! Glad you enjoyed.

This was an interesting read for me as I'm quite uninformed about baseball. (My roommate know a little bit about it and was able to enlighten me a little :D).

I really liked how Jared managed to get under Jensen's skin. And I enjoyed the story as a whole.

This was awesome! Baseball bores me to tears, but I really loved the way you used as the backdrop for your story. Jensen was so adorable- snarky and mouthy and mean, and yet afraid of thunderstorms. So cute! And I loved how Jared handled his attitude, whether it was ignoring it or riling him up. Awesome. <3

Thank you very much! I'm so glad you enjoyed it.

This was an amazing story; I loved how Jensen remained a snarky sonofabitch even while falling in love, and I also loved how there wasn't the requisite break-up when Jensen found out about Jared's contract. Very realistic and true and I enjoyed every word of it. Friending you, if you don't mind. I'd love to keep up-to-date on your work.

Great job!

Thank you so much! I'm very glad you enjoyed the fic. I should probably add that I'm pretty much off of lj for the time being, but I'm flattered anyway. :)

Ah, lovely. And a Brit who doesn't care about baseball, but you made me love this anyway, and kinda wish I did care about baseball. Snarky!Jensen was AWESOME, I love bitchy characters, and I love that he was still bitchy at the end, even when he was happy.

Thanks so much! I'm glad you enjoyed Jensen and the fic. :)

This was a lot of fun. Even, or perhaps especially when Jensen is being an ass.

On a more depressing note, its easy to see a professional athlete coming into the final stretch of his career become a bit bitter and desperately unhappy because they've probably spent their entire life (and definitely their career) in the closet, unable to have a life or a partner or be happy.

But I'd rather revel in how fun this was and the wonderful way the boys went from adversaries to sorta friends to lovers and partners. Because that's all kinds of YEAH!!!

And now if you'll excuse me, my poor beleaguered Cub are on TV and they're actually winning (at least for now)

Well, I am always especially pleased to get comments on this from fellow Cubs fans. :) Thank you very much, and I'm glad you enjoyed the fic.

your angry!jensen is absolutely adorable. I love all his quirks (particularly his fear of thunder!). This was a really enjoyable story. Thanks for sharing.

WOW - I didn't get around to read it until now - but wow! I absolutely adored this story!
.... actually I want to see more!

Thank you very much! I'm glad you enjoyed the story.

I loved this! Your set up is kind of hilarious and I love that you took the contract thing in a non traditional direction. This was just terrific.

Thanks so much! I'm glad you enjoyed it.

This is just what I needed, now that baseball season is coming to an end, and neither of my teams are even in the playoffs anymore. ♥
Oct. 14th, 2009 12:08 am (UTC)
I feel your pain, for sure. Glad you enjoyed the story!
Oct. 17th, 2009 02:07 am (UTC)
Awww..this was so fantastic and lovely. What a sweet wonderful ending. I love baseball fic and any sports-AU's in general, but how you wrote Jensen here is my absolute favorite out of all of them. Lovely!
Oct. 17th, 2009 07:06 pm (UTC)
Aw, thank you so much!
Oct. 26th, 2009 10:51 pm (UTC)
Aww! I absolutely loved Unapologetic Asshole, Yet Strangely Attractive Jensen; and the whole no tearful apologizing and no swooning and no drama, aka. the very male dealing with the whole situation was brilliant!

Oct. 28th, 2009 01:53 am (UTC)
Thank you so much! I'm very glad you enjoyed it.

I really liked this. Sports AUs are great for letting us picture the boys in sports unis, mmmm :-)

Your story felt honest and realistic and touching. I liked that you avoided big cliches, and loved the month-by-month pacing through the season and post-season. Lovely. Great job.

Thanks very much! I'm glad you enjoyed it.

what a lovely fic! Your Jensen is a lot of fun, and they are so cute together.
Great job! :)

Thanks! Glad you enjoyed the fic.

I enjoyed this a lot! Angry!Jensen was a lot of fun and I like how they slowly slid into this thing--not changing or with any great fanfare but satisfying.

Thanks very much! I'm glad you enjoyed it.
Jan. 11th, 2010 12:49 pm (UTC)
This was SO GOOD. I totally adored your snarky, cranky Jensen.

I hate baseball (I'm sorry to say) but, oddly enough, I'm a huge fan of baseball AUs.

Thank you! I'm glad you enjoyed it.

I love when the guys are pro-athletes and I think this may be the best of the baseball!fic. Well written and I love how Jared never gave up. And I love sarcastic!a-hole!Jensen. :)

Thank you! I'm very glad you enjoyed it.

Thank you so much! And I'm glad it helped you make it to opening day - I can't wait either. :)

Sorry I'm so late to reading this one but it is absolutely delightful. I love their Odd Couple schtick and the slow build of friendship/emotion is pitch perfect :D

Thank you so much! I'm very glad you enjoyed it.

Then he realized that he was considering, with some resentment, where the best place would be to find a waffle iron on a Sunday afternoon.
*sighs happily* Boys!

Thanks for all your kind comments!

Here via a rec on spn_themes. This was such a wonderful, evocative story that won me over from the start. Your imperfect characters were so sympathetic and engaging, the baseball backdrop served their development so well; your sharp dialogue and fast-moving plot combined for such an enjoyable read. I will definitely return here. Thank you very much for sharing this!

this was just the best. i adored it from start to finish. i posted in an earlier part too, and all comments still apply: i LOVE this version of jared, newly wisened to the world, making choices cautiously, being very conscious of when and how to say things. your characterization of jensen was off the charts, though, truly; he is complex, layered, hilarious, compelling, endearing, and someone we all have in our lives. love that jared called him out early on about the thunderstorms, and that ended up being a very telling moment for jensen's character later on.

fabulous work; can't wait to rec. i'm sorry i didn't find it sooner!
May. 5th, 2010 12:02 am (UTC)
That is so kind of you. I'm very happy that you enjoyed it so much. Thank you for the generous comment and the rec!
May. 4th, 2010 11:27 pm (UTC)
I loved how there were no stereotypes here and that Jared ended up caring for Jensen just the way h was. Lovely!
