Title: Ahead of the Threat
Summary: FBI Special Agents Jensen and Jared have been partnered for almost two years now and Jensen’s been falling in love with Jared for about as long. Finding the criminal doesn’t happen overnight, and neither does their story. Told through four cases, this fic follows an episodic/procedural format as Jensen and Jared’s relationship grows, they catch a lot of bad guys (and girls), and they save each other’s lives. Featuring art by quickreaver
Ratings/Warnings: NC-17/what one would expect from any procedural crime show – violence and side character death; descriptions of dead bodies, fight scenes, and crime scenes; discussions of (but no scenes/descriptions of) sexual assault, murder, racism/white supremacy.
Notes: Written for spn_j2_bigbang. This story was sparked when I got into watching the CBS show FBI earlier this year and instantly cheered for Maggie and OA as totally excellent partners :D Then I had a few ideas and this started taking shape. Thank you so so so sosososso much to ashtraythief, zubeneschamali, and saltyoppossum for all your help and support for sprinting and the roundtable alpha reads!
My greatest appreciation is to kelleigh who betaed the hell out of this thing, pointed out my missteps, and helped me make it so much better than it already was. I know she put a hell of a lot of time into this over the last three weeks as I kept working on it and finally bringing Part 4 together.
THEN The fabulous quickreaver claimed me - so lucky this year working with a great friend and talented artist. Thanks for being my partner in crime and working with me again! Please go give her love for her pieces!
AND FINALLY - thank you wendy for running this challenge year after year after year ... it's stressful as hell but I don't know what I'd do if we didn't have Big Bang season to keep us on our toes ;-)
