Minor character death, mentions of drug use (plus mentions of het pairings, if that bothers you).Notes:
I'm sorry to say that this fic will probably be my last hurrah in the Supernatural/Supernatural RPF fandom. I suppose it's only fair, therefore, that this was possibly the most painful thing I've ever written, and while I'm reasonably proud of the way it's turned out, I am so very glad it's over and done with.

who deal with this year after year (after year).Summary:Twisting hazel, wailing carnations, camouflage trilliums, skittering vines - to Jensen, sequestered in his flower shop, his plants are his best friends and constant companions. They see him through his tentative friendships with his customers, rival flower shop owner Mark's attempts to sabotage him, and even his hopeless crush on local university student Jared who comes in every couple of days to buy flowers for his girl.
But even they can't help him when Jensen has to use the plant that killed his mother to catch Mark in the act - no, that responsibility falls solely to Jared.Link to art master post: HereMasterpostPart 1 | Part 2 | Part 3 | Part 4
