Summary: Jared's job is boring, boring, boring. As a night security guard, he protects empty buildings by sitting on his ass and watching the security cameras while listening to a lot of talk radio. Not exactly the life he dreamed of for himself but hey, it's a living.
When he gets chosen for a new job babysitting the front desk at Muse FM radio station, Jared's mostly expecting more of the same. He's not expecting Jensen, the mysterious, hoodie-wearing host of Muse FM's overnight show, to catch his interest quite so thoroughly, or to be quite so difficult to figure out. He's not expecting so many unanswered questions about what, exactly, he's supposed to be protecting Jensen from. He's also not expecting to care so much about either of those things.
Oh, and he's definitely not expecting the monsters.

Hugs and thanks to dugindeep for being my sounding board, whip cracker and sprint partner. I missed you in the end process, my dear, *shakes fist at life* but it wouldn't have happened at all without your help, so thank you! Thanks also to Laura for the quick and dirty beta. Any remaining mistakes are mine.
Thanks as always to wendy for keeping this ship afloat year after year! This is my seventh year participating, and it's a (stressful) delight every year. You rock, Wendy!
And finally, thanks to all of you for reading! This one kind of took on a life of its own, so I hope you enjoy.
