Summary: It’s not like he doesn’t try to fit in and make friends, he really does. It just seems like nothing he does is good enough for them. If he smiles they blink. If he speaks they stare. And whenever they see him coming they get this panicked look in their eyes like they want to run away and they don’t even know why. Jensen knows why. It’s the same thing that makes his dad worry and his mom cry. That makes Nana tell his parents he’s going to Hell, not even caring that he can hear her.
It’s what makes him ‘weird’.
Reasons for Reccing: It's impossible to be a fan of J2 fiction and not rec this story. My rec list wouldn't be complete without it. This is one of the first stories I read when I started reading J2 fic because it was recced all over the place, and it's one that has stuck with me. I usually reread it yearly because it's just that good. I think everyone wants magic in their life, and this story makes that a reality. I would recommend this story to people who read original fantasy fiction because it's that good. The author does have a PDF available on the main post that has both parts of this story for easier reading.
