Title: Splintering in Slow Motion
Rating: NC-17 (some art NSFW)
Word count: 31k
Warnings: depression, anxiety disorder, suicide attempts, angst, divorce aftermath, explicit m/m sex, rimming, bottom Jared
Summary: Jared has been fighting the ‘darkness’ for as long as he can remember, until he can’t, or doesn’t want to anymore. He decides to treat himself to one final weekend of fun before laying down his arms, so to speak. The last thing he expects is a gatecrasher, someone who might derail his best laid plans for good.
(In other, oversimplified, words, Jared is a high-functioning depressive who’s just snapped, Jensen is a bitter ex-husband who's having a hard time moving on, and then there’s this freakishly well-timed coincidence.)
