Bratty Little Bastards: Autumn by interflora
Summary: Jensen Ackles hates coming in second. Jared Padalecki can’t stand being overlooked.

Love Game by cydsa
Summary: Playing doubles with your former rival and lover wasn’t exactly the comeback Jensen Ackles was looking to make. Jensen wanted to be at the top of the ATP tour again and right now, Jared Padalecki was his only ticket. Jared was a part of the past he wasn’t particularly proud of. Since his knee injury three years ago, Jensen had alienated everyone around him. If playing doubles with Jared was the only way he could get back on the tour then Jensen would take it. Even if it meant being constantly around the one person who’d always tied him up in knots and was long overdue an apology. Life fucking sucked.
