Title: Doctor Patient Confidentiality - Epilogue

Please see Master Post for details.


“Honey I’m home!”

Jensen grinned as he pulled the garlic bread out of the oven, “In here.”

Once it would have bothered him to have anyone, other than maybe Misha or Tom, calling Jensen’s apartment their home but with Jared it made something warm fill his chest. Not that it really was Jared’s home, at least not full time. Jared and he had discussed it and as much as Jared wanted to live with Jensen he also wanted to prove that he could be an adult on his own, so three days after the final day of high school, he had gone out with Chad and found an apartment only ten blocks from the university and spent most of the weeknights there. It was only on weekends that he came back to Jensen’s place and as much as Jensen wished it could be different, he knew that that was going to be changing soon once school really got going for his boyfriend. He wasn’t that old and university hadn’t been that long ago for him so he remembered the work load and the late nights. But he would accept it with a smile on his face because it was Jared’s education and that was what mattered.

But maybe come next year, at this time, that would have changed especially since it had occurred to him that he didn’t like waking up in the morning and not having Jared beside him, not having him there to kiss goodbye before he headed off to work.

Plus, Jared had let it slip that eventually he wanted to get a dog and when one of Jensen’s neighbors got to fighting or there was a party that the cops had to be called to break up, Jensen started playing with the idea of maybe buying a house. And a house had a yard, and dogs needed yards to have room to run around because if he was getting Jared a puppy for his birthday, it was going to grow up into a full sized dog, not one of those yappy ankle biters.

He did have to May to think about it. But the idea of a house and a puppy and Jared beside him daily kept sounding better and better.

“Yeah, can see that.” Jared wrapped his arms around him from behind and pressed a kiss to the back of Jensen’s neck. “How was your day?”

“The usual.” He let Jared take his weight for a second before straightening and pulling out of his grasp. Side stepping to the counter, he set the bread on a cutting board and pulled the bread knife from the block, “So, it’s been a month,” he glanced over his shoulder, “and I promised not to ask before now but I’m asking now. How’s it feel to be a college student?”

“It’s not like high school. Faster paced and a little daunting.” Jared shrugged and frowned, “Not that I’m not up for it but I think if I knew what it was I wanted to do, it would at least give me a more solid goal.”

Jensen turned and leaned back against the counter, “So what are you thinking?” It wasn’t his first response, what he wanted to say was that Jared couldn’t possibly be considering quitting, it would be stupid but that wasn’t his decision. If Jared thought that dropping out and finding a job until he knew what he wanted to do was the way to go, Jensen had to let him make that decision and support him in it.

“Not much,” he shrugged again, “But I’m not quitting and losing my scholarship. I’ve been looking into different career paths and once I’ve narrowed it down to a couple that I’m interested in, I’ll get your opinion.”

Jared really was growing up, “Sounds good. Now go get changed and I’ll set dinner on the table.”

Patting his stomach, Jared spun on his heel and headed towards the bedroom, “Back in two.”

And he probably would be; Jensen had learnt quickly not to get between Jared and his food.

omg what a great story. first off, i wanna tell you that i loved how real everything felt. all the decisions, angst-ing, loving, and living all retained a sense of reality that nothing seemed forced, rushed, or to the point where it became too dramatic. your writing is simple, and it makes the story so easy to read, yet you're still able to convey all the emotions and events happening.

i have to admit, this story was a little hard to read on an emotional level (in a good way of course), especially towards the end when jared had to deal with everything that was happening to him. you portrayed his despair and hopelessness so wonderfully, i wanted to jump into your story and just give him the biggest, warmest hug i could muster. i was so happy to see him able to pull himself out of that pit, and the phone conversation with jeff left me so happy ♥ oh, chad and sophia are the greatest friends EVER.

jensen's insecurities were also very well-written, especially how they drove him into pushing jared away so many times. even though i wanted to bash his head in every single time (especially the scene in the office when he ended the appointments and their relationship altogether, even after seeing jared cry like that, pleading with him and telling him he loved him. man i was so mad.), i still have to commend you for sticking to it because life is really like that and people don't get over their own issues very easily. thank god misha (and jared, definitely jared) was there to finally make jensen see how complicated he's made everything out to be and get over things so he can finally be with jared.

the ending was just so satisfying ♥ loved that you didn't drag it out any longer. see jensen? that was how easy it could have been all along man. anyways, i apologize for writing a massive essay, but i loved this too much and couldn't help myself. thank you for this! (also, is there any way for you to pdf this? i would really love a copy when/if there is one. ♥)

I'm glad you enjoyed it.

There's a pdf file now included on the Master Post page, though I didn't add the art - I'm not sure how to do that.

And thank you for reading and commenting.

I thought this was amazingly well thought out and beautifully written. I disagree with the previous poster though and would have loved to have seen a bit more, but I will take what I can get, lol!
16th-Feb-2011 05:22 pm (UTC)

would have loved to have seen a bit more Talk to crynintherain, I'm going go take my cold meds and do nap. ;)

Glad you liked it.

This was just brilliant. I loved it from the first sentence. The fact that it was a gradual build up to Jensen realising he was in love with Jared and vice versa helped the story alot. I also liked the fact that Jared decided to get his own apartment so he could be become more of an adult.
The last line made me giggle so much.
Thanks for sharing this incredible story.

Amazing I loved it the way the guys got together was really interesting they both had issues to deal with and that drew them together they made each other happy. Jensen jad the right idea giving Jared the chance to finish high school he doesn't want him to miss out on anything as he did when he was with Christian. Glad they had happiness at the end of the story.

Glad it was worth the read.

And now I'm off to go argue with lj over why I'm still not getting all my email notifications.

What a great ending! I really loved the story and want to thank you for the great ride. Hey, maybe you'll send a timestamp our way to see how the guys are doing. Thx for writing! :)
16th-Mar-2011 10:36 pm (UTC)

Actually there is a timestamp being worked on right now. *shifty eyes* Well it will be once I'm done here...

Interesting look at an unconventional relationship. I felt very glad that Jensen stopped treating Jared as a patient. That was the true ethical lapse -- not so much the age difference. The age difference was something to think about. Personally, when I was 26 I couldn't fathom dating a 17 year old. But that said, love comes in many stripes and if I believe in anything it's live and let love.

The characterizations were richly drawn. Certainly Jared was a rather mature teen and Jensen a rather immature adult. Maybe that's why they worked :) I also liked the slow build and inner thought process everyone went through.

Yeah, there was a lot in this fic that I wondered about including the age difference but it seemed to work it's self out in the end...I hope.

I'm not good at leaving comments after I read a story, I just don't feel that my one or two lines of praise are enough after such a long wonderful story. That said, I think yours deserved it, it was a joy to read.

Though, I wouldn't mind a timestamp showing the first time Jensen introduced Jared to his friends, and bringing him to their friday evenings. I mean, you talk so much about Jensen wanting to be there with somebody so he's not alone, and I just think it would be great to see that happen. But I also think that for an ending this was a good one :)

I'm not good at leaving comments after I read a story, I just don't feel that my one or two lines of praise are enough... You are singing to the choir.

Actually there is a timestamp in the works right now only crynintherain chose to start one between the boys and Jared's parents so we'll finish that one first and then move on to the friend's one.

So congrats on the epic story. I didn't think this would happen when i setup the challenge, so this is very cool. Glad it worked out.
16th-Mar-2011 10:43 pm (UTC)

I didn't think it was going to end up this epic when we started it. What was it I estimated the word count would be at check in? Somewhere between 30,000 and 40,000 I think. Pfft, shows how much I know.

And thank you for putting this challenge together to begin with!

I was reading this over at sinfuldesire and every time I tried to leave a review it said my security code was invalid..After 12 tries I gave up. Luckily I came upon this and got to read all of it and leave a review! I adored it.The tension, the build up, and in the end they both were healed and together. Great story!!

I'm glad you enjoyed it.

Seriously, how come this has just 18 comments? What's wrong with the world?

First of all, I'm really not into AU. I like the boys and their lives the way they are (well, or would be if they ware in love :D). Anyway, you got me hooked. I think it was Jared's character that really got under my skin. He was so cocky and just full of anger. And Jensen as hot!glasswearing!psychiatrist always works for me :D

What else? I really liked Misha, Chad and Jeff in this. Both were great in their own ways and just super supportive.

The story itself is just epic. The minute you think you've figured it out, you realise you have no clue whatsoever. It's so super twisted and close-to-life, it's such a joy to read.

In the end there would be a thousand lines I'd like to quote, because they are just awesome, but I don't have the time. But let me say this, I really enjoyed your style and I believe there's some kick-ass wisdom in your lines.

Thank you so much for putting your hearts into this.

I'm glad we pulled you to the dark side of fandom (AU), if only briefly. Have some dark side internet cookies. :)

And thank you for reading and commenting.
27th-Mar-2011 10:10 pm (UTC)
Absolutely LOVED this! Any chance of a sequel or timestamp?? :D
28th-Mar-2011 02:24 pm (UTC)
Hey Pretty!

Thanks, I'm glad it was worth the read. Actually there is a timestamp sitting in my docs waiting to be done and another one planned. It's just a matter of kicking my muse into gear.
19th-May-2011 03:22 pm (UTC)
Nice ending! I was almost braced for one more interference from Christian. Oh, and it was kinda weird to have Christian be the bad guy!! LOL! But it was great to see the J's work it all out and each end up stronger individually for it. Kudos!
31st-Aug-2011 07:57 pm (UTC)

Sorry for the late reply, lj notifications don't like me I guess.

It was werid making Christian the bad guy instead of the friend but fun.

And thank you for reading and commenting.
