Title: To Wake a Captive Dreamer
Author: sophie_448
Rating: NC-17
Pairings: Jared/Jensen, Chris/Steve, implied Chad/Sophia
Word Count: 27,234
Beta: hunterwithcause
Warnings: graphic m/m sex, potentially disturbing description of past sexual assault
Notes: Written for spn_j2_bigbang
Summary: Once upon a time (ten years ago to be precise) something terrible happened to Jensen. He’s been dealing with it, or failing to deal with it, ever since. His best friend, Chris, takes care of him and Steve takes care of Chris. They’re one precariously balanced little family who also happen to play in a band together. When Jared becomes their new bassist, everything changes. An unorthodox retelling of Sleeping Beauty.

This little word just to let you know how much I've loved this fic. I found it in podfic version, it explains why you haen't got over enthusiastic messages all over every comment pages.
For starters it's very well written and rings very right and very in character for every and each one of them. I was also very happy to see Steve and Chris featured so proeminently.
Second, the sountrack touched me deeply. I didn't know Above and Below and it makes me feel weird as how much it rings true to me. It also made me want to pull my hair out that I can't find any tabs for Steve or Kane anywhere...
And third, well... the longer I go, the farther I am out of touch and this, it hit close to home, really. I'm a lot like Jensen in a way, and it made me feel a lot better, although a bit shaky.

This long review just to say... I love this!
