Okay, so I'm signed up for j2_everafter and I'm torn between two ideas. One of them just feels too Truman Show for me so I'm leaning towards the other one even though that would really only have one aspect of my movie prompt (which, for the record, is Bolt).

First, and the one I don't mind admitting I'm leaning towards, is that one day Jensen gets into some sort of an accident and wakes up thinking that he really is Dean Winchester. And, of course, there is much chaos to be had because there's a guy who looks like Sam but isn't, not to mention all these other people trying to make him remember that, hey, he's Jensen Ackles. Kind of like an amnesia fic with a twist.

And the other would be trying to figure out how to make it so that Jensen (I just don't know why but I really want him to be the one going "WTF? Real life?") becomes a TV star at a young age and then, you know, there's like a whole town involved in making him think his TV show is actually real life and then he manages to leave town for some reason and meets Jared who shows him that no, he's not a guy who has been genetically altered or whatever, he's just Jensen.

Now that one is way closer to Bolt and I think it'd be fun but I just feel like part of it would be way Truman Show feeling. As for the other, I could work in a bit of angst and still make it kind of fun, I think. However, I really want to know what you guys are thinking - because I'm still a bit torn.

Either way, I already have a feeling on who I want to have as the piegons who are all "I swear, you look so familiar." and all that fun stuff. *grins*

Opinions? Ideas? Anyone? Bueller?

I've seen a lot of fics where one of the guys gets amnesia and thinks that he is his character. In fact, there was one where Jensen and Jared had this happen simultaneously.

I actually like the Truman Show sort of idea better, because there are a lot of ways you could take it, with different perspectives of the actors pretending to be his fellow hunters and that kind of thing.

Just to give you some ideas - I had a role-playing group awhile back, based on The Matrix, and I got bored one day and wrote this scene of Truman being in the real world, but it was actually the Matrix itself, and he felt all the time like he was being watched. He got to the point where he freaked out in a store because he walked past a camera and saw his image on a security monitor.

Hmm...that's definitely something to consider then. I'd never seen the thinking they are their characters thing before (but I admit, I gravitate towards AU J2 a lot of the time) so that was actually what made me think of it.

Thank goodness I started plotting out both of these ideas. *eyes them*

Thanks! :D
