This time it's J2 complete AU fics. So nothing where they end up or already have acted together in Supernatural. That's a rec list for another day.

This isn't meant to be a complete list, it's just stories I like. Also it's my way of saying thanks to the writers for the great stories. More please. There were too many for one post so this is the first part...  

EDIT August 2008: Now split into three parts due to length.

j2 au fic recs a - h

A Bird in the Hand by [livejournal.com profile] ramsesthegreat
Written for [livejournal.com profile] spn_rimmathon
Jared & Jensen are thieves, semi trained by Jeff, who cross paths again when trying to rob a museum for criminal mastermind Eric Krpike. With rimming.

A Little Fall Of Rain by [livejournal.com profile] splashpink
Atmospheric, noir, period tale that’s full of twists and turns. This is clever and surprising, but never at the expense of emotion and character.

A Little Less Conversation by [livejournal.com profile] fryadvocate
Described as a non-hooker hooker fic. Melancholy, realistic and brave for not giving in to the fairy-taleness that is sometimes demanded.

A Story to Tell the Grandkids by [livejournal.com profile] cherryscott
Written for [livejournal.com profile] reel_spn
Based on the movie 'But I'm a Cheerleader', Jared is sent to gay camp where he meets Jensen and finds true love. A lot of the CW crew show up but Jeff has the best role as a camp counsellor who wears "a blue t-shirt proclaiming Dicks are for pussies!, along with a pair of running shorts, a whistle from a lanyard hanging from around his neck". This is such fun.

A Tiny Piece Of You by [livejournal.com profile] crackedbuthappy
This is loosely based on the film ‘Return To Me’. Jared’s boyfriend dies and when he finally moves on a secret threatens to jar him straight back into the past. Featuring Jensen as the best boyfriend in the world and a heartbreaking Jared, this is a sad but ultimately hopeful read.

A Year In Limbo by [livejournal.com profile] sanyin
This is a fabulously detailed and evocative story featuring teacher Jensen and pupil Jared. “Jared zoned out on the lilt and fall of Jensen's voice as he recited the whole passage, in fucking Italian. Fluid syllables and rhythmic pauses. Did he not want them to listen? He had to admit though, if he had to fall asleep to something, this wasn't so bad. Jensen was obviously really into it, his cheeks a little flushed and hands flying. He even loosened his dorky tie as he went.”

All These Tangled Truths
by [livejournal.com profile] estrella30
Bar owner Jared hires Chris Kane and it's lust at first sight when he encounters backing singer Jensen. This was one of the first Jared/Jensen fics I read and I'm still all squeeee about it. It's cute. It's funny. Chad is annoying and Chris is a cockblocker. My only criticism....It's too short. I wanna see more.

Always By the Book
by [livejournal.com profile] veronamay
I've got to say that I love Veronamay's writing. It's all about plot and characters. Straightforward and gripping.  Did I also mention fun? Grumpy FBI agent Jensen gets the nightshift babysitting flirty witness Jared.

And It's a Whole New Ball Game
by [livejournal.com profile] kest
Long angstyish Jared and Jensen play baseball story.  Some, hell all, of the baseball stuff confuses me because English over here....but I still enjoyed the emotions of the fic. Just think how good you'd find it if you'd seen the sport at least once.

And the Rest, As They Say, Is History by [livejournal.com profile] raina_at
Without a doubt this is one of my all time favourite j2 stories. I’m not even certain I could put into words everything that makes this so enjoyable & sweet & engrossing. I’m pretty sure everyone will have already read this….and if not go, go now. Click that link to take you to the tale of laughter and romance where Jensen is a down on his luck actor, who ends up as a dog walker for Hollywood megastar Jared.

Any Road Will Get You There (How Jensen and Jared Didn’t Meet) by [livejournal.com profile] _doodle
Written for [livejournal.com profile] spn_j2_bigbang
Adorable story where Jared and Jensen manage to fall in love without ever having met one another. It’s fleshed out with fantastic supporting characters, including a wonderfully grouchy David Boreanaz, and cool multi-media pictures and links to illustrate the on-line conversations. Very sweet.

As Long As You Smile by [personal profile] loony_moony
Written for [livejournal.com profile] abouttwoboys
A highly-camp and pleasurable J2 retelling of the film ‘Miss Congeniality’.

At Your Doorstep
by [livejournal.com profile] nutkin 
Jared orders a lot of stuff from a home shopping network. Jensen is his delivery guy. This is so much fun and guaranteed to leave a smile on your face.

Aural by [personal profile] lazy_daze
Written for [livejournal.com profile] spn_j2_xmas
There’s a really interesting plot here but my brain was too busy going ‘boom’ at the ridiculously hot porn. It’s a perfect kinkathon with a dirty talking Jared topping the hell out of a squirming and obedient Jensen. This is smoking. “Jensen bit down on his lip. Jesus Christ. He squirmed—couldn't help it. Padalecki's voice was close and soft right in his ear, saying things like that, just—outright, no pussy footing around.” .

Bar!verse by [livejournal.com profile] estrella30
Utterly adorable 'verse where bartender Jensen meets student Jared.

Basketball!AU 'Verse: Hang Time by [profile] ze_pink_lady (ongoing)
Super sexy porn AU where hooker Jensen "works for" basketball star Jared. I really love the push and pull of the two characters in this. And did I mention the porn?

Be My Baby by [livejournal.com profile] titheniel
A J2 version of Dirty Dancing with Jensen as Baby and Jared as Johnny. Does anything more need to be said? "It was the summer of 1963. Before the Beatles came, before president Kennedy was shot. It was the summer of Jensen’s last year as UT student, when everyone in his family still called him Baby and it didn’t occur to him to mind, when he couldn’t wait to get his hands on his major, and when he still thought the only man he’d ever feel connected to would be his dad.”

Behind The Curtain by [livejournal.com profile] renjifan
An enjoyable story with really good characterisations and a neat plot. Jared’s an acting student with a crush on his teacher by day and a phone sex operator by night.

Behold and See by [livejournal.com profile] annella
Jared is a conductor and Jensen a soloist in this awesome romantic comedy. The boys are just the cutest things ever, with flaily Jared so completely into what he's doing that he just loses track of the world around him and panicky but trying his best daddy Jensen. Also a big yay to the supporting cast whom so nicely round out this totally enjoyable universe.

Blended And Blessed, Paramedics & DaddiesA Promise Is A Promise and Silence = Death by [livejournal.com profile] benitle
Written for
[livejournal.com profile] fluffandfold and [livejournal.com profile] spn_j2_bigbang
Yay. Schmoopy domestic goodness. Single daddy Jensen meets single daddy Jared when their kids get into a fight. This is a sweet slow-boil of a story with a really natural sense of development over time. Oh, and Jensen has a special piercing…Now with fantastic follow ups including the latest agsty meet-the-family epic.

Body By Design 'Verse: Tattoo AU
by [livejournal.com profile] incompletework2 (ongoing)
Jared and Jensen work in a tattoo parlour with the rest of the CW lot.

Break Loose Ranch 'Verse by [livejournal.com profile] technosage 
Another of my favourites. This is one of the hottest series ever.  I think it’s because the porn is about the characters and it is the way it is because of the way the boys are. It’s that deftly written. Jared is a rancher who meets a kind of damaged Jensen at a Kane show.

Business and Pleasure by [livejournal.com profile] belyste
Written for [livejournal.com profile] spn_harlequin
A mighty fine big meaty fic where Jared is a rich playboy CEO & Jensen is his (secretly in lust with his boss) assistant. What happens when Jensen has to pretend to be Jared’s boyfriend? You’ll be charmed, that’s what.

Business Hours Are Over by [livejournal.com profile] annella
Very gay receptionist Jared gets a crush on Jensen, the office accountant, in this charming and amusing fic.

Can’t Fight This Feeling by [livejournal.com profile] jeyhawk
Written for [livejournal.com profile] abouttwoboys
Epic retelling of ‘Coyote ugly’, J2 style. Way better than the film.

Can't Point the Way To Your Heart by [livejournal.com profile] belyste
Written for [livejournal.com profile] spn_holidays
This story is such a delightful read, full of good humour and romance and possibly the cutest little kitten known to man all of which add up to a giant squeee experience as you read it. Jensen helps Jared seduce the woman of his dreams but gets a little more involved than he expects. “He follows Jensen around all day, trotting after him with his little tail held high, and he cuddles at any opportunity, even if Jensen’s just standing still for a second – he’ll dive at Jensen’s feet if they stop moving and try to crawl in his lap if Jensen so much as moves to sit. He purrs hard enough to shake his little frame if Jensen so much as lays a hand on him, and if he picks Oscar up, he’ll nuzzle right into a spot under Jensen’s chin, inside his shirt collar, and be perfectly content to curl up there as long as he can.”

Cattle Rancher, Convenient Wife
by [livejournal.com profile] lightning
Written for [livejournal.com profile] spn_harlequin
So funny and sweet. Cattle rancher Jensen hires Jared to be his 'wife'.

Comes a Horseman by [livejournal.com profile] astri13
Hugely enjoyable Bronze Age AU where Jensen gets captured by another tribe and handed over to Jaret, their fearless leader.

Coming Of Age by [profile] b_s_n_m (friends only)
Mechanic Jared meets writer Jensen in this sweet yet sad fic. I like the fact that in this one Jared is the woobie and Jensen gets the chance to take care of him and help him deal with his homophobic dad.

Confidence by [livejournal.com profile] _doodle
Intruguing series where conman Jensen needs to get to Jared to get to Jared's money. I was left pretty broken by the end, but the journey the author takes you on is so worth it.

Cupid 97 (This ain't Your Hallmark Cupid) by [personal profile] aeroport_art
Written for [livejournal.com profile] spn_fairytales
Jensen is a cupid who is supposed to shoot Jared and Sandy with arrows of love. Things don't go to plan. So, so adorable.

(Dance Is) The Hidden Language of the Soul
by [livejournal.com profile] jeyhawk
Written for [livejournal.com profile] j2_diaries
I have a thing for both Insecure!Jensen and Bottom!Jensen fic. This one hits both of those. Here Jensen is a dance instructor  in a relationship with nurse Jared, but his insecurities may just break them apart.

Days In Our Lives series
by [livejournal.com profile] titheniel and [livejournal.com profile] splashpink
Jared and Jensen star in very hot, very dirty and very kinky porn movies. Featuring toppy!Jared and bottom!Jensen. Yippee. As the series progresses we get to find out more about the boys' story while keeping up with the hot sex. “Jared chuckled against his ear, rubbing his knee tantalizingly over Jensen's ass. "See, the way I see it, you like it this way," He bit into Jensen's neck, pressing him tighter into the wall. "You like to play it tough, getting it as rough as possible, but you're still a slut who would spread his legs anytime if it meant you'd get a hard dick up your ass." Jensen's cheeks flamed up with anger and shame, and he tried to slide out of Jared's grasp, even if he knew it was pointless to struggle.”

Dirt On Our Uniforms by [livejournal.com profile] beckaandzac 
Written for [livejournal.com profile] spn_j2_bigbang 
Jared and Jensen meet and fall in love at an elite prep school in this genuinely lovely fic. There’s plot-a-plenty, sharp-as-a-tack dialogue and a really well fleshed out cast of supporting characters.

Do I Seem Bulletproof To You? by [livejournal.com profile] fleshflutter
Written for [livejournal.com profile] spn_j2_bigbang
Quite rightly, this epic fic has been hailed everywhere. It’s fantastic. Out-of-work actor Jared, takes a job looking after high-price hooker Jensen in a story that has the perfect amount of humour, angst and hot sex. “Jensen is so gorgeous that Jared is almost glad that he's so badly hung over because seeing this guy for the first time without some haze of headache and grogginess to dampen the effect could probably cause Jared's head to explode. That speculation leads him to wonder if perhaps Jensen is already bringing out the crazy in him.”

Don't Go Mistaking Paradise
by [livejournal.com profile] __tiana__
Written for [livejournal.com profile] reel_spn
A Jensen with attitude and an oblivious Jared in this J2 version of 'Some Kind of Wonderful'.

Don't Let It Go To Waste by [livejournal.com profile] kinkynicky
Such a cute story where Jared has loved Jensen since forever and now that he's 16...

Drawing Constellations by [livejournal.com profile] mijmeraar
Written for [livejournal.com profile] reel_spn
Bizarrely, even though I hated 'Love Actually', I really enjoyed this J2anised version. Even though there’s a kid. Who is not annoying! Also features the rest of the CWRPS gang.

Emo!Jared 'Verse by [livejournal.com profile] jeyhawk (ongoing)
Traumatised Jared meets Jensen at college.  The first part of this 'verse,  Settling Into Now'  is finished and Jared is slowly starting to put his past behind him. The story is continued in Comfort In your Skin. I want to know what happens next.

Even Porn Stars Gotta Eat by [livejournal.com profile] airgiodslv
Yay. The CWRPS crew are all porn stars and Jared asks Jensen out on a date. This is one of those fics where the only thing wrong with it is that there’s not enough. More porn adventures…More…More. This is just so fun & hot & sweet. Plus Jared’s inner monologue food obsession is hilarious.

Everyone Experiments in College
by [livejournal.com profile] indysaur
More boys meet in college romancing.

Eyes On Me by [profile] dea_liberty 
Jensen helps club-boy Jared get ready work. Porn ensues.

Faint Stars and Bright Satellite Skies by [livejournal.com profile] marishna
Written for [livejournal.com profile] spn_j2_bigbang
Absolutely epic fic where local boy Jared meets star actor Jensen. 61,471 words and I was engrossed though all the ups and downs, the romance, the first fumblings, the angst. This is a story where you really get time to savour every plot point.

Fair Exchange by [livejournal.com profile] annie46
An extremely enjoyable J2 version of wife swap.

Family Affairs by [livejournal.com profile] astri13
Written for [livejournal.com profile] abouttwoboys
Delightful J2 adaptation of the film ‘Whilst You Were Sleeping’. This fic features possibly the warmest most wonderful Padalecki family representation ever, and yes that totally includes the crazy grandma, and you’ll totally want to smoosh them all by the end.

Feeling Is Freedom by [livejournal.com profile] arlad 
Written for [livejournal.com profile] herogetstheguy 
Surprisingly moving J2 version of the film ‘Equilibrium’. The story has a great mix of action and drama, which are blended seamlessly to drive along the narrative and keep the reader hooked. In a dystopian universe feelings are forbidden and Jensen is one of those that police the populace. Things change when he meets rebel Jared.

Feels Like Flying by [livejournal.com profile] micawbish
This story manages to have a great mix of the sweet and the funny. The boys are in a band with some of the other CW actors.

Five ways Jensen met Jared at the mall during the holiday season by [personal profile] chase_acow
Five wonderful vignettes of how different versions of Jared and Jensen could have met and fallen in love. So 5 AUs for the price of one. Yay. I’m especially fond of the homeless Jensen one. But then the kids one is so damn cute and…Damn it. I can’t choose.

Football’verse and ficlets Three Days Without Jared and Weight Training by [livejournal.com profile] bksncleverfic
What better setting for the boys than the world of American football? Now, I’ve never even seen the game but the author gives you enough information for this not to matter at all, it’s that cleverly written. Jared and Jensen have to learn to work together but something more than a professional relationship ensues once they get past all of Jensen’s insecurities and get down with Jared’s can do attitude. This is a really fantastic read and now comes with a bonus timestamp ficlet. Yay. I really can’t recommend this enough.

For the Love of Jensen Ackles by [livejournal.com profile] j2daily
So sweet that I just want to cuddle it. Chubby schoolboy Jensen has an enemy in evil douche Chad. Whose side will Jared take?

For The Workforce Drowning
by [livejournal.com profile] lostt1
Jared breathes life into ordered office worker Jensen in this warm and sweet tale. The story is full of these tiny details that really make you feel as if you’re part of it.

Forever Destined by [personal profile] basez_dreams
Sweet fic where the boys find out they're reincarnated.

Fourth Wall by [personal profile] raina_at
Written for [livejournal.com profile] spn_j2_bigbang
This is a gripping murder mystery where flashback, narrative and text combine to reveal the history between Jared and Jensen as much as the murder plot.

Fratboy 'Verse: till you're old enough to know things ain't as they appear
by [livejournal.com profile] keepaofthecheez
I can’t stress enough that this fic is HOT. So hot that I used caps lock dammit. I love predator fratboy Jared and his pledge prey Jensen. I love all the pretending. I love fighting against himself Jensen. Basically, I love every damn thing about this story. (Except that it ended!)

Getting Dressed In the Dark by [livejournal.com profile] sazzlette 
Written for [livejournal.com profile] spn_j2_bigbang 
Epic school-aged story where Jensen’s dad gets involved with Jared’s mom and when they all move in together the bustle and flow of family dynamics changes the boys’ relationship in ways they could never foresee. The well-rounded supporting cast really help flesh out the universe and make it all the more believable.

Good Girls Don’t, But I Do by [livejournal.com profile] dollydolittle
This is a really fun and funny version of the film ‘Sorority Boys’. Jensen, Mike Rosenbaum and Christian ‘ugliest girl in the world’ Kane are the boys forced to crossdress so they can hide in a women’s sorority house - where they meet an amazing group of girls, ‘Jenny’ falls for frat-boy Jared and they figure out who really is the villain of the piece.

Grapes of Wrath
by [livejournal.com profile] astri13
Written for [livejournal.com profile] spn_harlequin
Ugly duckling Jensen. Evil twin Jared. Intrigue. Danger. Trickery. It's all too delicious. Jared wants revenge on his twin brother Jeff and uses Jensen to get it.

Half Truths And Whole Lies by [livejournal.com profile] rocketbalm 
Written for [livejournal.com profile] spn_j2_bigbang 
Jensen is an ex- newsman with a secret and Jared’s been hired to co-write his biography in this story, which manages to be by turn dark and intense but also touching and heartfelt. I loved how Jensen's mystery is drawn out through Jared and how the discovery of the secrets relates to their growth as a couple. “After he had agreed to the contract, Jared couldn’t help but wonder whether he should keep or kill Sam. If Ackles was half the asshole the papers said he was then the job would be six months of hell. On the other hand, the man was as talented as he was beautiful and Jared was pretty sure he could happily sit and listen to his voice read the phone book much less recount, first hand, some of the most compelling and news-worthy stories of the last six years.”

Halfway Home by [livejournal.com profile] lemmealone
Written for [livejournal.com profile] spn_j2_bigbang
Sad but hopeful story where Jared meets Jensen in a psychiatric hospital.

have you seen him whom my soul loves by [livejournal.com profile] veronamay 
This is a beautiful and emotional story that’s so perfectly written that it draws you right in from the get go. Jensen is a priest that moves to a small town. There he meets the friendly Jared, who is about to marry his fiancé. This is smart and sad and aching and powerful and I really can’t do justice to just how good it is. “This new guy, though—Jensen. He seems different. When he trudged up the drive to the church and asked politely for Father Singer, Bob thought he must be a lost traveller asking for directions. It took a minute for him to get past the road dust to see the collar and the rosary dangling from his belt. Even then, Bob wasn't sure this wasn't some sort of set-up until Jensen introduced himself, mild as a lamb.”

Heaven's Just A Sin Away and And Her Lips Were Cherry Red by [livejournal.com profile] jeyhawk
Written for [livejournal.com profile] spn_harlequin and [livejournal.com profile] spn_j2_bigbang
Such fantastic stories. Well written, well plotted and filled with fully drawn out characters. Funny and sad in equal measure, this perfectly hits all the emotional points. The first is a fic where medium Jared is the only one that can see Jensen. The second picks up with the boys a little down the line, just in time for murder and mayhem. ““You’re just this… gigantic dork,” Jensen continues. “Your hair is ridiculous, your nose too sharp and maybe a little on the big side. You never had sex and your taste in movies leaves a whole lot to be desired… and yet…” He smiles, his thumb brushing over Jared's cheekbone. “You’re the most beautiful thing I ever saw.”.”

Hey Baby, Wanna Upgrade My System by [personal profile] cruel_illusion and [livejournal.com profile] cherryscott
Jensen installs some computers for Jared. Then they have really hot sex.

Highschool Au 'Verse by [livejournal.com profile] annella (ongoing)
Student Jared seduces teacher Jensen and a long hot romance ensues.

Hired by the Cowboy by [livejournal.com profile] kashmir1 
Written for [livejournal.com profile] spn_harlequin 
Cowboy Jensen takes in a pregnant Jared.

Holsters, Handcuffs and Hookers (Cop AU Verse) started by [livejournal.com profile] kashmir1  (ongoing) 
The CW crew are all cops in this cool AU by various writers.

Hollow Years by [livejournal.com profile] jeyhawk
Incredibly long AU crossover with Buffy The Vampire Slayer. Jensen and Jared are in love, but fate conspires to force them apart. Featuring angst, adventure, monsters, hell dimensions and prophecies, this will keep you entertained for hours.

Homework!verse by [livejournal.com profile] thenyxie 
Hot and dirty AU series where student Jared and teacher Jensen get together. Featuring lots and lots and lots of kinks played out by a toppy!Jensen and subby!Jared.

Honey Flower, Apple and Lime (or, The Tale Of The Rake And The Footman) by [livejournal.com profile] veronamay  
Written for [livejournal.com profile] spn_j2_bigbang 
Another excellent story from veronomay. This one’s a period piece with Jensen as the lusty aristocrat and Jared as his innocent footman. The subtitle is pretty self-explanatory so I really shouldn’t have bothered…... It’s a tale of ribaldry.

How To Get in Shape and Other Life Lessons by [personal profile] lea_ndra  
Jensen is a trainer getting Jared into shape. “Your assistant said you’re going to be in an action movie by James Cameron and you start filming in three months? And you play some kind of iron-miner-turned-proletarian-hero in a post-apocalyptic world?”. Snarky banter, sweating, pizza deprivation and hot sex all make for a really enjoyable read.

How To Sell A Guy A House In Six Weeks by [livejournal.com profile] dijisun
A really fun AU story where Jared is a realtor trying to find the perfect home for fussy film director Jensen Ackles.

Glad you liked the list. It was cool getting a chance to give some form of feedback to stories I liked. I'd mainly been lurking and never commented and I felt kinda bad about that.
And you're welcome :-) I really enjoyed your story, so how could I not include it....
Have run off to friend now.
