A/N: So... This happened.  I have never written anything J2.  Written for the Comment Fic Meme: Vacation (Over) for strgazr04's prompt: "Behind the scenes to that 'makeover' vid Guy Bee posted"
Disclaimer: The following story is completely fictional. I have no affiliation with "Supernatural", Jared or Jensen because seriously, if I did, I wouldn't be writing this.

Jared was going to hate him.

Okay, so maybe “hate” was a strong word; Jensen made a living out of overreacting to things all the time, so sue him for being a bit of a drama queen (king?) occasionally.

The point of his little tirade?  Guy had called him to set to start filming for the new season.  Ahead of the scheduled start date.  Which, no big deal right?  Why not get a jump start on things before some of the conventions and the Comic Con panel?

See, Jared came up with this idea a few years ago, when they both started growing out their beards after they wrapped for the season.  They’d both let their facial hair run wild, to give their “poor, pretty face” a break until filming started up again and then shave them off at the same time, because… Well, to be honest he didn’t really know why Jared came up with the idea but who was he to argue when the puppy dog eyes had turned on him?

So Jensen agreed, and when they returned to Vancouver they stood in Jared’s oversized bathroom and shaved.  It turned out to be a good idea, a really fantastically amazingly good idea because it was like discovering each other all over again.  The sex was really fucking good, alright?  Apparently his giant housemate had a shaving kink.  Or a thing for Jensen’s face.  He stopped questioning Jared a long time ago.

Back to the matter at hand: since Guy called him to set for filming, he needed to shave.  Jared was still off gallivanting about with Thomas since they weren’t scheduled to start for a few more weeks.  Everyone knew of the shaving tradition so Guy thought it’d be fun to document the process and send it to Jared for prosperity.

So Jensen went to the makeup trailer, sat dutifully in his chair while Guy filmed him spinning towards the camera and back like a model before sitting back and letting the girls do their magic.  And an hour and a half later, because apparently he wasn’t blonde enough for Dean this year, he was spinning around in his chair again to complete the transformation for the camera.

It was completely harmless.  It was supposed to be a before and after deal, nothing major or headline breaking.  Except apparently the before and after broke the internet for a day.  At least that’s what Jared said when he called approximately two hours after being sent a copy of the video and watching Twitter explode in response (he knew that was a bad idea.  Jared and fangirls were never a good combination for him in the end).

“But… It’s tradition Jensen.”

“I know.”

“You broke tradition.”

“I know, Jared.”

“What am I going to do now when I get back?”

“I could just stop filming and grow out my beard until you get here.  Would you like me to piss off Shannon, Jeannie and everyone else on set just so we can shave together?”  There was a sigh and Jensen could see the pout Jared was making without him having said anything.

“No, they’re scary enough when they’re not pissed off at us.  I just…”

“I know.”

There was a long pause, nothing uncomfortable, just a silence as they contemplated the upcoming weeks before, “So… I like the blonde.”

“Shut up.”

Okay, so maybe hate was too strong a word.  Because in the end, the video that broke the internet ended up breaking Jensen for a weekend.  Jensen will never break tradition again.  Well, maybe just once more.  Or twice.  Jared isn’t very forgiving when it comes to his traditions.
