Oh, wow.
I just have to rec The Courtship of Jensen’s Co-Star by qblackheart

Author's summary:
Somewhere in the time between a handshake and a hug, Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki went from being reel-life brothers to real-life best friends, and complete strangers to cosmic soul mates, no rhyme or reason to it that either of them could ever see. Jared was everything Jensen was not: friendly, funny, and full of life; one in six-point-whatever billion the Earth’s population currently stood at. Life was awesome. Work was amazing. Everything was fine until Jared kissed Jensen. Everything was peachy until Jensen fell in love. With desperate times unexpectedly calling for desperate measures, Jensen called Chad Michael Murray for relationship advice – because being in love led to temporary insanity obviously – so it really didn't surprise him that he couldn’t seem to win when it came to wooing Jared. Still, Pisces must’ve been in a really good place in the night sky or something because suddenly, right smack dab in the middle of the miserable courtship of his co-star, Jensen discovered that maybe loving Jared was all he needed to do to win his heart. And luckily for Jensen, loving Jared was also the one thing he did best.

It's probably the best J2 that I've ever read, & it's a nonAU story (& I normally prefer my J2 to be AU so that shows just how awesome this story is.)
It's long ( 112K+!) & quite a slow burn because it follows the boys from the moment they first meet.
It's all from Jensen's POV & my heart just about broke along with his as he realised that he'd fallen in love with Jared & that his love was never going to be returned in the way that he wanted.*

It's extremely well written & has beautiful artwork, too (it was a Big Bang story.)  There's romance & schmoop & angst (& incredibly hot sex!)

Here's a little trailer for the story made by the artist, switch842:





*Spoiler - only it totally was because Jared loved him, too, & it's a fabulous, romantic happy ending & these boys belong together forever! ♥
