Masquerade

I read this fic that has been rec-ed all over the place, and deserved every single praise it got in all the reviews. It is a beautifully writtenJ2 story, slow and smooth in unfolding, achy and hopeful at the same time.

The most interesting part, for me, is the last chapter. When Jared finally got to see how Jensen saw him, 'cause Jensen wrote a book, based on his own life, in which Jared was a big part. The book image of Jared is not the image Jared has of himself. In Jensen's eyes, Jared is sure of himself, despite the dangerous undertone, he is not self-destructive and a put-together person. Jared, in his own eyes, is broken.

Every single person we see everyday, is the version of the persona he/she chose to wear to face the world. Everybody is a story, there are always those painful defining moments that are so private that they got a good chance of never see the light of day. This is why I will always always read fiction, 'cause it's all the stories of all the people.
