This idea has been chasing round my head for ages. I really hope it sparks an interest in someone. If someone is tempted to pick it up *keeps fingers crossed* please feel free to change round any details you want, it's just an outline.
J2 plot bunny. Werewolf AU – can be Mpreg if you wish, not essential. Ideally this is a bottom!Jared story.
When their beloved pack leader, Gerry Padalecki is suddenly killed despite their grief, they find themselves divided in their quest to find a new alpha male to lead their pack. By rights, that should fall to Gerry’s heir, his son Jared who is adored and fiercely protected by the pack, but Jared is not an alpha, rather, he is destined to mate with the new alpha. Mating for werewolves is for life, and Jared is secretly scared of who his new mate will be.
While there are several challengers for the new role of alpha and Jared’s mate, a lone alpha, Jensen, appears from seemingly nowhere and finds himself shoved into leadership of an unstable pack and mating with the sheltered but sweet Jared. While most of the pack accept their leader, some are insulted that an outsider can rule them but after proving his skills as a leader, no one sees fit to challenge him. Despite his resistance to lead, Jensen finds himself warming to his mismatched pack, and falling in love with his new mate. While peace is temporarily restored, two unforeseen threats come at them, one from inside the pack in the form of Jared’s best friend Chad, who’s in love with Jared, and the other an outside, Justin, a long-time rival of Jensen, who wants revenge against Jensen for an old slight, and will stop at nothing to ensure this.
