Summary: One year ago, Jared lost his husband in an act of senseless violence. Stricken with grief, Jared has withdrawn from society and become reclusive, his only human interaction coming from his foster brother Chad, his florist friend Misha, and the occasional grocery store cashier - that is, when Chad can convince him to leave his apartment. If that wasn’t bad enough, now he’s being haunted by the ghost of his deceased husband, and Misha is the only one who seems to believe him - even if Misha's theories and superstitions make him a little, well, eccentric.

Jensen, on the other hand, is finally free of his own unhealthy relationship. Too bad being one half of the couple known as Jen-Jen drove him completely bat-shit crazy. And he is, if the disembodied voice that only he can hear and strange dreams are any indication. After all, Jensen is ninety-nine percent sure he’s not a ghost, and he’s never been married to anyone named Jared, either.

This is a story about unlikely connections, second chances at love, and giving in and letting yourself be just a little bit crazy..

Reccer's notes: This was one of my favorite entries in this year's spn-j2-bigbang, and it still resonates with me months after reading it. It's a visceral and heart-wrenching story, and unlike any J2 AU that I've read in awhile. Definitely check it out, and don't forget to also check out the lovely art by apieceofcake
