I...it has happened, I am signed up for my first official fic challenge over at spn_harlequin. Now I know what I`d say to myself which is "Finish your fic from a year ago, fucker". And I have every intention to do this but I`m also proud of myself for having taken the plunge this time. Also I have a deadline for this baby so no weaseling out for another year. :)

Since this the theme is "harlequin" - which totally counts as one of my shallow, guilty pleasures - I will keep to some of the style and clichés of the genre so prepare to be "schmooped". :-p And yes, by its nature it has to be RPS. I`m breathing in a brown paper bag right now to calm myself.
However a schmoopy bodice ripper meeting the Supernatural fandom, especially a sub-genre I have never written a word in should in the best case scenario make for some hilarious CRACK. Worst case: abysmal crack. But it will be CRACK, rest assured.
Please wait with defriending until after you read it. It`s all xkatjafx`s fault anyway. *g*

I have seen people "introducing" their prompt respectively their take on it in their ljs and I thought, why not. So this is the mission I have chosen to accept.

His Forbidden Fiancé

Millionaire of the Month: Jared Padalecki

Source of fortune: video games

Motto: achieve success, deny failure

In the years since his identical twin had stolen the family company, Jared had devoted himself to two things: success and revenge. Suddenly, his brother's fiancé, Jensen Ackles, appeared and offered Jared the opportunity to achieve both. A simple case of mistaken identity had made Jensen believe Jared was his twin. But in Jared's simple plan for payback, he hadn't counted on wanting to keep Jensen for himself….

Supporting players: Joshua Padalecki - who used his twin brothers happy-puppy goodnaturedness to his own advantage till some day he went too far, now CEO of Padalecki Enterprises

Tommy Welling - the only real friend Jared has left and his second-in-command in PadAventure Enterprises

Mike "Rosey" Rosenbaum - chief of development and research of PadAv Ent.

Chad - an idiot Hey, I may not have written any RPS but I know my stuff. :)


I know going by character you`d peg quiet intense Jensen for the cynical, revenge-driven businessman and Jared for the innocent "maiden". Have to go with personal preferences though and consider it a challenge. :-p

Obviously I will also be a bit, generous with society rules seeing as there is male/male engagement. I guess Texas is out though. *g*


Look for it in an LJ near you around August.

And speaking of crack, I read the cutest thing today, the love story of a house cat, named Jared and a little hamster, guess how he was named. *g* Awwwwww.

Ich bin auf jeden Fall sehr gespannt, was dabei rauskommt *g* Vielleicht lässt du mich mal vorab lesen, wenn ich schon Schuld bin?

Ach du je, Druck...wo ist meine Papiertüte... *g*

Vielleicht lässt du mich mal vorab lesen, wenn ich schon Schuld bin?

Mal sehen, ob ich bis zum Monatsende schon was Brauchbares hab. Du solltest vielleicht ein Kapitel "Deadly Temptation" vorher lesen. Danach kann ich nur gut wegkommen.

Harlequin is the English/US-version of what we know as "Julia" or "Romana"-Hefte, Liebesromane. So I thought not exactly your thing. :) The prompts were all summaries of existing novels, like business men meets bla bla and they fall in love. Only you rewrite it as Sam/Dean or Jensen/Jared. It`s all basically romance. Or you make a comedy out of it or something.

Ah, Groschenromane? Hee, I love the idea. Too bad I don't ship. Maybe I should start reading RPS.

What? Wait a minute, I thought you were gonna try and exorcise me for trying to write schmoopy romance? *g*

Hey, it's not like I've never written or read RPS, you know? :-p The purpose of RPS is schmoop, not exploration of characters. Yes, my mind works in mysterious ways.

Yes, my mind works in mysterious ways.

Yes, I think so too. :) But unpredictableness is cool, I feel like I`m way too transparent most of the time.

Haha! I'm trés unpredictable. (Yeah, I wish...)

Maybe when I get bored over the summer I'll start reading J2...

You could try the Jared Padalecki Untitled Project because it really is awesome. Or the cat/hamster story. :)

Assassin and target? College students? Business man and mechanic? Back in the 40s a private investigator and his client? Cowboys? A merman and a shy boy? A dancer and a massage therapist? Students at a school for superheroes? Or one as an actor and the other as his Ex-Marine bodyguard? I have a wide variety to choose from. :)

Hee, I`m an evil seducer of innocent souls. Muhaha.

Anyway, this is the P.I. story, chapter 1 of 8 so far, it`s still WIP:
Company he keeps

This one is P.I. and client too, only with the roles reversed and in present time. And it`s finished in 7 chapter:
Secrets can be told

I`m afraid I have gone missing on a humanitarian mission deep in the Amazonas territory so there will be no body and just a family get together. No pictures.

That's very Homo faber. Or "Auf der Jagd nach dem grünen Diamanten", depending.

Hehe, klingt doch recht nett.

Bei SGA_harlequin sind auch einige nette Sachen bei rausgekommen und ich vermute einmal, dass es bei SPN ähnlich sein wird.

Und mir gefällt Deine Plotidee :-) Die nette freundliche Fassade kann trotz allem ein verletztes und zynisches Herz verbergen. Oder jemanden, der andere nur ausnutzt. Darüber solltest Du Dir also keine Kopfschmerzen bereiten ;-)

Ich mag diese Verwirrspiele mit Zwillingen :-)

Ha danke, dachte mir auch, dass sich das irgendwie hinbiegen lässt.

Ich mag diese Verwirrspiele mit Zwillingen :-)

Ich glaub das liegt an all den Doppelten Lottchen-Verfilmungen aus der Kindheit. Die haben sich eingeprägt. :)
