Summary: In a world where love at first sight is a documented scientific phenomenon, and potentially lethal, Jared and Jensen still meet for the first time when they've both been chosen for Supernatural; things just go a little differently after that.
Rating: R, that's right, no porn in this one, guys! *hides from flist*
Disclaimer: Like, seriously? This is 5000000% made up. I promise.
Warnings: Mentions of childhood sexual abuse. It takes place prior to the fic and there are no flashbacks or graphic description.
Author's Notes and Thank Yous: This is kind of a Frankenstein mishmash of imprinting from the Twilight series, and real actual love at first sight, and, like, fantasy romance novel soul mate bonds. Plus some medical-type stuff. Also, I am aware that my updates for the Near You Always 'verse are a billion years overdue. Sorry. It's just that you go on a little hiatus and all of a sudden you are no longer writing fiction. WTF! Extended notes on this 'verse and the insanity that is my brain can be found in the Special Features I will put up sometime this week. Beta by vindictive87, who was with me from the very beginning of this monster, and with thanks to my BFF extraordinaire comma Esquire, the Muse, who gave this a last look-see when vindictive87 wasn't able to get the final draft beta'd and back to me in time. Also, hugs and chocolate to my flisty darling justthismorning, who made my mock-Wikipedia article on Imprinting look like an actual Wikipedia article (the girl's got skills!) and bloodquartz, who made my gorgeous banner, as well as a ton of other beautiful art that I will probably spend the rest of the week drooling over.
