Notes: This is a sequel to "Should You Ever Leave," in which Sam conjures Jensen in an effort to locate Dean. The J2 characters are based loosely on "Behind the Scenes: A Fan's Perspective."
Summary: Jensen Ackles comes back from his time in the Supernatural world a changed man. Surviving a week trying to help Sam Winchester find his brother (and failing miserably!) has given him courage and made him damn grateful to be alive. Even Jensen's contentious co-star notices the difference. Jared and Jensen haven't gotten along for years, but after his adventure Jensen just isn't scared of Jared anymore. Then a near-tragic event changes things between them forever.
