Title: Thermodynamics and the Modern Male
Author: snickfic
Artist: ladyofthelog /
Fandom: Supernatural RPF
Characters/Pairings: Jared-Jensen friendship, some Jared/Matt Cohen, Jared/OFC, but the story is basically non-shippy
Genre: high school alpha/beta/omega AU, coming-of-age story
Word Count: 23,000
Rating: R
Contents / Warnings: alpha/beta/omega dynamics, references to knotting and mpreg, masturbation, sex talk ranging from clinical to juvenile, crude and insensitive language, sexual harassment, bullying, extended discussion of intersex genitalia
Note: Takes place in the same universe as (but does not depend on) my other SPN RPF knottingverse fics.

Summary: When Jared goes into heat for the first time, his comfortable high school slacker existence comes to an abrupt halt. Now he’s an omega, which means alphas smell like heaven (exhibit A: Matt Cohen), terrifying senior Katie Cassidy is saving his damsel ass, and the beta girl he’s been crushing on for months suddenly looks more like a sister. Meanwhile Jensen, beta and best friend extraordinaire, is maybe not dealing well with never having been told that Jared was omega.

Special Notes: There are a few people without whom this fic would not be what it is:
* ghostyouknow27, who first poked me into signing up with her and then read my drafts, talked me through worldbuilding details, and regularly provided me with much-needed encouragement. Before that, she was the one who talked me into writing a/b/o in the first place; the fact that this universe exists at all is 95% her fault.
* ladyofthelog, who not only made me an adorable banner and fanmix available at the art masterpost linked above, but provided invaluable feedback and cheerleading throughout the editing process.
* bobthemole, who listened to much venting in the early stages, made helpful suggestions, and helped me coin a word. She knows which it is.
next_to_normal, who saved me from many very bad titles and inspired the one I finally used.
* wendy and thehighwaywoman who make this challenge possible every year.
To all of you: thank you so much.
