Summary: Samuel, an orphaned boy, lucks into a life he could never have imagined, one full of wonder, magic, and love. Fate sends him to a couple with a traveling show, and growing up amid the strange and beautiful performers is everything he’d dreamed. His childhood is happy, but as an adult, Sam becomes ever lonelier and develops two distinct personalities. There is the shy, helpful young man who avoids social company, but there is also the charismatic and seductive artiste, first inspired to perform by a green eyed stranger he meets one night by chance. When the stranger - a man named Dean who seems oddly familiar to Sam - becomes a very real force in his life, Sam learns the other man's deep secret. Dean too is living a double life - one Sam would have never expected and that leads him down a road of magic and discovery. Written for the 2009 [ profile] spn_j2_bigbang challenge.

To [ profile] joans23, without whom this story would have never have begun [thank you for not laughing at me when I told you my idea]. And [ profile] jumpuphigh, without whom it would have never ended, and who provided the most amazing soundtrack for the story. You're both amazing cheerleaders and I couldn't have done this on my own. [ profile] half_elf_lost is still an unparalleled beta and comma-killer, even when I sent story sections to her WAY after I was supposed to. Thank you, L. And of course Malory, who never let me stay upset and offered her musical expertise when I was at a loss.

And thank you to [ profile] vorpal_pen who managed to make some amazing art even though she's wicked sick and has to move today! Please check out her art post and leave her some love!

To all the friends who encouraged and supported, especially when I wasn't feeling any love for my story whatsoever. You were excited even when I wasn't, and sometimes that made all the difference in the world.

Until now, I've only participated in [ profile] spn_j2_bigbang as a reader, but thanks to some encouragement [*cough[ profile] joans23cough*] I signed up this year. I won't say it's been completely stress free, but there have been some amazing moments and I'm proud of the story I created. =) So thanks to the Big Bang mods for undertaking such a massive challenge!

And to the readers - thank you for taking a chance on this crazy idea. It means so much to me. ♥ Your feedback is more than welcome - that's what makes this whole crazy experience worthwhile!
