Title: An Unforgettable Moment (In Time) Epilogue

Please see Master Post for fic details.

Jensen stepped out onto the deck and closed the back door behind him, after ensuring that D.C. had managed to slip out the door.

He smiled as he listened to the sound of Jared’s laughter and the dogs’ accompanying barks somewhere nearby in the trees.

He glanced over to his right and the memory of Jeffrey Morgan’s last few moments flashed through his mind. 

It was coming up on a year since everything that had transpired that day and sometimes it felt more like a dream than anything that had really happened. But then there were other times, like in the middle of the night when the memories of running from Colorado and meeting up with Steve and Chris and his violent anger towards Jared would surface in dreams, pulling him from his sleep sweating and shaking and it was like it had only happened the day before.

He understood why it was forbidden to time travel, that the risks were too great but honestly, for him, it was the jumbled memories of what did happen but yet didn’t. And then there was the jarring moment of waking up sprawled on the deck when his last moment before that had been watching Jeff die and feeling the strongest wave of vertigo wash over him.

At least he had Jared to share his thoughts with because without that he didn’t know if he would be able to stay sane.

“Get him, Get Jensen!”

He turned in time to watch Harley and Sadie come bounding out of the trees heading straight for him. He caught sight of Jared appearing at the tree line only seconds before the dogs surrounded him, laughing at him as his arms pin wheeled while he tried to keep his footing while the dogs jumped at him.

Gravity and the dogs conspired against him and he went down in a flurry of wagging tails and wet tongues.

“Jared! You’re an ass!”


Jared was happy as he saw the dogs slobber and tackle his lover. It had been so good for Jared to see Jensen alive and well once again because Jensen had proven to be the one person in his existence that had kept Jared alive. They experienced their harsh times but had their extraordinarily good times, as well.

The moments of heartache would be few and far between but were absolutely worth it when it came to Jensen. Hell if Jared had risked his duty as a guardian to save Jensen’s life there was nothing else greater than that.

Jared went up to Jensen and bent down and immediately the dogs backed away as if they somehow knew the plan that Jared had in mind. Jensen’s eyes adverted to the position Jared was in because Jared stood on one knee and held his hand in Jensen’s.

Jared knew there was two ways that this proposal could go. Either Jensen said yes and they arranged the ceremony or Jensen said no and they would wait.

It went something akin to:

Jared took a deep prolonged sigh, “Jensen I could come up with a fancy speech for you and pour my heart out until I’m blue in the face but that’s not going to convince you.” Right then Jared had laid a gentle, heartfelt kiss that overflowed with passion and grace and then some. When Jared pulled away Jensen looked as if he was in a daze.

“My momma used to say you were able to tell if love was real by the kiss of your lover.” Jared explained as he continued with the proposal. “So, tell me what you feel. If you don’t want to marry me I can wait, Jen. I just want you to know that what I feel is real.”

No one was able to replace that feeling Jared felt when Jensen smiled back at him warm and bright. His lover’s bottle green eyes tried desperately to hold back the tears but Jared knew then, with no help, what the answer was.

“Yes.” Jensen replied as he took Jared’s mouth into his with a gentle push and a soft caress. “Yes.”


The End

Very enjoyable, I'm so glad that Jared got to save his Jensen and yet still kill Jeffrey, and that Jensen was able to fix the mess that Jared made of the timelines.

Thank you for sharing.

This one was definitely frustratingly fun to write...I may have confused the timelines and had to fix things occasionally...maybe. :)

And thank you for reading and commenting.

Really good! Time travel never fails to confuse me but you managed to write it without confusing me :)

I'm glad it was all sorted in the end and that they had their happy ending.

It confuses me too, there were a couple times I had to go back to remember where exactly we were in the fic so I knew which Jensen was doing what. *g* Or that could be because I'm getting old and senile...just don't tell anybody.

Glad it was worth the read.

Holy crap, I loved this so much!!!
10th-Aug-2009 01:59 pm (UTC)
Thanks sweetie!

I'm happy you enjoyed it.

Also, you're icon wins!

Those 2 are so great together. I'm glad everything worked out so well for them.

Since I already asked you for 1, it won't surprise you to know that I would love to see a sequel to this. Maybe it could be a headstart on your Bigbang of 2010 ...

Bigbang 2010 *flails* I'm not thinking about that yet. I have 2 WIP, an RPF bigbang due Sept. 1 and a J2 afterclass due Sept. 1. And that's without taking into account the charity fic that will be due Jan. 01/10 (if my calculations are correct), loverstar's pay it forward fic that I haven't written yet, my J2 werewolf fic that I started forever ago, my J2 Chis as cupid fic, again started forever ago, my J2 vampire fic that loverstar gave me the prompt for, the timestamps/sequels for Look Beyond What You See..., crap I know there's more, there's always more...

Oh and leave us not to forget that I'm sulking 'cause I don't have a ticket for Vancouver con.

Screw it I'm going back to bed... *g*
13th-Aug-2009 01:38 am (UTC)
I know what some of those are.

I should be sulking because you didn't even mention mine. I have been forgotten :(

Don't worry I know you didn't really forget, you're just busy

Sleep tight

Oh I know you know what some of those are. You know, I know, the muse knows but she's easily distracted by shiny things...Oooh look Jensen! *sigh* See?

What forget? You wanted one of the sequels to Look Behind What You See... Oh wait, you meant sick!Jared, yeah didn't forget just didn't name it, my bad.

I would have gone back to bed only it was about 9:30am when I posted that. *g*
14th-Aug-2009 12:05 am (UTC)
Yes I so. Jensen or Jared could distract anyone *** BG ***

Yes X 2. Okay I'll play along & believe you didn't forget LOL!

Why let that stop you !

I love this, love the lengths that they'll go for each other. I love the way the timeline changes with Jared's actions, and how it has consequences. But I am also glad that the boys are together eventually.

Glad you enjoyed it.

A very very good story. I love the idea of the pools and there being a witch to watch over it and a guardian to watch over the witch.
It was a very complicated story line but you kept it very clear as to what was going on and it was easy to follow.
So glad they both got through it ok, with them both alive and together and the last part with the proposal just made me squee with happiness.
A truly great fic and a pleasure to read. Thank you.

Thank you.

I'm glad it was easy to follow, confusing people was one of my main concerns right after confusing myself and loverstar. :)

And thank you for reading and commenting.

That was a very interesting story! The entire concept was very original and you handled it perfectly. I love how, after all the tension in the fic, you ended up with a happy moment, with the proposal.

Thanks for sharing. :)

Oh, that was something else, alright)))

I usually don't read time-travel stuff, but this one was really well-written and thoughtfull!

Great job! Thank you!

Sorry, I just got a slew of notifications in my email from livejournal and this was one of them...gotta love lj notifications. *sigh*

Anyway, thanks. I'm glad it was worth the read.

And thank you for reading and commenting.

I'm in awe of people like you, who manage to write about timetraveling without making it insanely confusing and hard to follow.
You have managed to write a truly amazing story which had me captured right from the start.
Thank you so much for sharing this incredible story with the rest of us :)
13th-Mar-2010 01:46 pm (UTC)
Thank you.

I'm glad that it turned out to be easy to follow, I was kind of leery of writing it because of being worried that it would end up confusing. Good news is, it didnt. Well, to read it anyway, writing it, that was a different story. *w*

And thank you for reading and commenting.

I enjoyed the twists and turns in your story. And that their choices had consequences.
Thank you!
