I've been tracking responses to the spn_masquerade meme, and one thing I've noticed about the art fills, as well as the fics, is that a big part of what seperates bottomJared fans from those like me who can't even imagine Jared topping is the way we tend to see Jared.

For example,when I think Jared, I think this guy:
[Spoiler (click to open)]

Square wide jaw, big uber masculine caveman physique, overbearing, strong, perfectly suited to manhandle others and look like the big scary or protective top, depending on what I'm in the mood for.

When bottom Jared fans imagine Jared though, they seem to be seeing this guy:

[Spoiler (click to open)]

Well that or even younger.

It gets pretty weird for me, whenever I see people describe Jared as 'oh so pretty', or having Jensen call him 'little one', because it instantly pulls me out of a fic, because that's just not even remotely close to what I see when I think of Jared.

Now to be fair, I'll occasionally see Jensen like this guy:

Though most of the time, I do realize that he's closer to this:
[Spoiler (click to open)]

Yet when bottomJared or bottomCas fans describe him, he ends up more like this guy:
[Spoiler (click to open)]
Only bigger, tougher and more controlling.(sorry it took me a while to find a pic of Jensen that came even close to what Jared's fans seem to see Jensen as)

Which kinda makes it hard for me to get in a lot of their fics.
