Pinch Hitter Sign-Up Post

This is the pinch hitter sign-up post for the 2019 round of spn_j2_xmas!

If you'd like to help out with creating a gift for someone whose original gifter dropped out, then please sign up here using this simple form:

When we have an assignment that needs covering, we'll contact you with the details. You can accept or decline a pinch-hit depending on whether you have the time and whether the assignment is your cup of tea. If you decline, we'll try to come back to you for a later one so you won't miss out.

You can sign up as a pinch-hitter whether or not you've signed up as a participant in the main exchange. Please remember that if you haven't signed up in the main exchange, you won't get a gift of your own in return (although you will get our undying gratitude!)

As in prior years, we're asking for a bit of detail on the sign-up form. This doesn't need to be lengthy -- it's just to help steer us in the right direction and save time in emailing people with pinch-hits they definitely can't do (e.g. if a giftee only wants bottom!Sam, I know not to ask anyone who only does bottom!Dean).

The availability question is also not binding -- if you say you're available but then find you're busy around the holiday period, that's totally not a problem. This is just a rough guide to make the process speedier on the mod side of things. :)

Pinch-hitters are superstars! You can sign up any time from now until the exchange is over. Any questions, as always, let us know here or shoot an email to: spnj2xmas@gmail.com

Title: Things that Go Bump in the Night
Gifter: kisahawklin

Pairing/Characters: Jared/Jensen
Word count: ~3000
Rating: Gen
Warnings: None
Summary: Something's haunting Jensen's place. Jared helps.

Things that Go Bump in the Night at the AO3

Gift for jennylynneh: Splice

Title: Splice
Author: Hunter King (wincest_whore)
Beta: jdl71
Fandom: CW RPF
Word Count: 6,505
Rating: R
Characters/Pairings: Jensen/Jared, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Alona Tal, Jim Beaver
Warnings: slash, obsessed!Jared
Summary: When the doctors responsible for created Jared, a human-alien hybrid, realize his fascination with the janitor, Jensen, they use it to their advantage. But when the obsession Jared develops becomes too great, there's no telling just what this science experiment is capable of.
Disclaimer: None of the characters within are mine. I am simply playing with them for my own twisted entertainment!
Author's Note: This fic was written for the spn_j2_xmas gift exchange. I was asked to write a fic where Jared is a government experiment and Jensen is the janitor who wants to break him out of his cage. So...jennylynneh, I hope this is at least close to what you had in mind when you sent your prompt ideas the mods' way!

Gift for Junkerin

Title: In Perpetuum Et Unum Diem
Gifter: shadowcat_spn
Pairing/Characters: Jared/Jensen
Word count/Medium: 1.3k (will rise though ;), fic
Rating: R / Mature
Warnings: mentions of suicide and character death (the story is mostly set in the after life)

One is meant to drag people to Hell, the other shows them the path to Heaven. It takes 150 years until former best friends and almost-lovers Jared and Jensen meet again, but when they do it turns their after-lives upside down.

The rules have changed. But how much?

A/N: Again, I am really sorry for being late, life kept demanding attention. I tried my best to work in your likes for evolving relationships and characters and I really hope you like the result. Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year ;)
