Title: Beholder – Written for the RPF Big Bang 2010 (rpf_big_bang )
Spanish Translation of Beholder by alfer6
Author/Artist: sandymg / apieceofcake
Beta: borgmama1of5
Genre: RPS, J2 AU
Pairing: Jared/Jensen, mentions Jared/Sandy (blink and you miss it)
Words: ~80K
Ratings/Warnings: NC-17 (in parts). Mild violence. Mention of past abuse. Adult content.
Summary: Jared was passionate about the work he did with the animal shelter. Between that and living with Sandy, life was satisfactory. Until the cold night that the filthy, homeless man hidden in an oversized hoodie was dumped at the shelter and Jared couldn't just turn him out. Even if the man roared and called himself 'Beast.' Because under the hood, Jared was sure he caught a glimpse of a prince in those green eyes.

I have been checking (lurking at) the rpf bigbang comm for your story. I am so excited that it is already posted, I am very much looking forward to reading this. I LOVED your SPN-J2-BigBang story "When Your Lover Breaks". Thanks for sharing.

WOW. I just spent all day reading this, seriously and died. It was so so sweet. Jared... oh Jared. Just wow, I don't even have words to say how wonderful it was. My heart was actually aching in parts and then you would fix it and then break it apart again. Seriously this was one of my favourite J2 stories ever and your writing was really beautiful throughout. I'm not sure if that comment was even coherent but none the less, A+ for reals!! ♥♥
I breathe therefore I writesandymg on October 18th, 2010 07:08 pm (UTC)
Thank you so much. It means a lot to hear that folks are reading and enjoying. This took months to write and the effort now feels so well worth it. I'm delighted you enjoyed Jared's journey.

Thanks! Lot of folks seem to be zipping through it surprisingly. It doesn't have very many cliffhanger sections so that's both surprising and gratifying. I'm very glad you enjoyed this.

I'm snagging the .pdf. I started the first chapter and realized I've been ignoring the baseball game! That takes A LOT. Looks great and I can't wait to finish the story!

Amazing, simply amazing. And beautifully written. I love how you tied everything together while keeping the boys as true to themselves as possible. Really lovely to read! :)
I breathe therefore I writesandymg on October 19th, 2010 01:35 pm (UTC)
Thanks so much. I'm glad you enjoyed this. Clearly Jensen was damaged to the point where he wasn't quite recognizable. But I worked on keeping Jared accessible as a counterpoint. I'm pleased you thought it worked.

i've read this all and what i want to say is, it was fantastic. such a good ride. you've written jensen so dearly and clearly that I was always worried about him.

thank you for this ♥
I breathe therefore I writesandymg on October 19th, 2010 01:37 pm (UTC)
Hi. Thanks for coming back and letting me know what you thought. I'm delighted you liked this. I'm glad I made Jensen someone to worry over. He was rather fragile and I was trying to show that while still also showing just how strong he'd gotten as well.

D'awww!

Just finished reading the PDF, thanks so much for making one btw! And just had to tell you that I LOVED this, seriously, you should see the big dopey grin upon my face right now ♥

Thanks so much for writing and sharing :D
I breathe therefore I writesandymg on October 19th, 2010 01:38 pm (UTC)
Thanks! Yep ... I was going for achieving dopey grins all around. It's sort of the point of a fairy tale after all. Thanks very much for reading and for coming to share your thoughts.

amazing story
Spent most of a rainy cold day reading this amazing story. It kept my interest the whole way through. I loved how you were never quite sure who were the baddies and who wasn't. You kept me guessing. I loved how both Jensen and Jared were healed by their meeting each other. great job...thanks so much for this story..once again another one of your stories has become one of my favorites...
I breathe therefore I writesandymg on October 19th, 2010 03:06 pm (UTC)
Re: amazing story
You know, this is the kind of story I'd choose to read on a rainy day :) Thanks so much for taking the time to read and letting me know you enjoyed this. I worked hard to gray the lines between the villains and the heroes. Especially as my theme was the uniqueness of perception. I'm glad it showed.

Thanks again.

This was one of them fics I wanted to know what happened but didn't want to end. Loved it from the first word to the last.

Nathan Barleygpin2084 on October 19th, 2010 08:42 pm (UTC)
This story was absolutely brilliant. It was plotted out beautifully with just the right amount of whimsy to sweeten the fairy tale. I loved the rich cast of characters as well. I literally could not stop reading nor did I want it to end. Immediately became one of my faves of all time. Thanks so much for sharing.

ps. If you're willing, a timestamp would be amazing. I can't wait to see what good Jensen is capable of doing in the city. Or maybe what Joel and Seth are up to? :D
pps. Thanks for the pdf!
I breathe therefore I writesandymg on October 19th, 2010 08:53 pm (UTC)
Thank you! for taking the time to read and for leaving me such a lovely, inspiring comment. I was looking for a blend of whimsical and gritty and I'm glad you thought it worked. It felt like life is tough enough that a little magic is sometimes necessary.

After 80,000 words I might need a break from these two at present. But. I certainly could see returning to visit them again in the future. The fact that you are curious for more about Joel and Seth is gratifying as they are pure OCs. :) If we revisit, I'd touch on everyone again and see where they are at.

I loved it so much. It's an awesome story. I really liked how you depict the characters and the interaction between them.

Now I need to read your other stories, you have anothe follower :)
I breathe therefore I writesandymg on October 20th, 2010 03:53 pm (UTC)
Smile. Followers are good :) Thanks so much for taking the time to read. I'm so pleased you enjoyed this story. I have mostly SPN Gen on my LJ. But also a growing number of RPS J2. One other long one for the 2010 J2 Big Bang. I have a sequel in the works for Three Strikes, which is a J2 romantic comedy. Hope you enjoy the other stories as well! Let me know.

This story my two evenings in a row very good for me. I shouldn't have stayed up this long but I couldn't stop reading. Just finished it and it's great.

I love the character development and how everything comes together. Thanks so much for this. :)

Trigger Warning: Lifematchboximpala on October 20th, 2010 11:36 pm (UTC)
I absolutely believed in these characters. Like Jared, I completely bought into the story of the witch and loved how that played out at the end. You walked a fine line between reality and fairy tale fantasy throughout and I was with you all the way. I am so impressed by your skill and hope to read many more of your stories in the future!
I breathe therefore I writesandymg on October 20th, 2010 11:42 pm (UTC)
Thanks! I have a collection of Supernatural Gen and a small amount of J2s on my LJ.

You totally got what I was trying to do with this story -- ride that tightrope between whimsical and gritty. Glad you thought it worked!

Just finished the PDF - this story was awesome!!! I was a little wary at first, because Beauty & the Beast holds a special place in my heart, but you really did it justice. I love love love this Jared, the build up of his relationship with Jensen, the way he got to know him and fell in love. <3

Thanks again!
I breathe therefore I writesandymg on October 22nd, 2010 12:59 pm (UTC)
Thanks for reading and coming back to share your thoughts. Disney's Beauty and the Beast is one of my fave films. Certainly my favorite of the genre so I know exactly what you mean. Even as I was thinking it up I was going in my head: "A male Belle?" a "female Gaston?" Am I nuts?

But then I couldn't get the image of Jensen hiding in a hoodie -- thinking he was hideous. It was kinda irresistable.

THANK YOU!!!
I truly adore this story from Beginning to End. I love the Ending. And they lived Happily Ever After!! SAP!!, Yes, unfortunately, I truly am one. So I did so love your story. I wish you would write more like these. This the first story of yours I ever read. I started reading on Sinful Desire and when you told me you were on livejournal. I just had to find you and am glad I did and read this wonderful story. I can't wait to read more of your lovely works. JEANETTE C. (AKA; BEWITCHEDJC);
