Welcome to the Official Fan Fiction Recommendation thread. This thread will hopefully be a valuable resource to everyone in their quest to find the best loved Supernatural fictions out there. Anyone is welcome to post their favorites, but in order to keep things easily accessed and user-friendly, I’m asking that everyone refrain from holding conversations on this thread as it is for posting recs only. To discuss fics and recommendations, please go here: Fan Fiction Discussion Thread.

To make this as convenient as possible for everyone, it is suggested that recs be posted in the following manner (if you need help, feel free to pm me):

Title and author
Short summary, if available (on, check on author's profile page to find this or use your own words to describe what the fic is about)
Link to the story itself (just post the url from the addy window if you don't know how to do the other kind of link)

*Important* If the story you are recommending is a death fic, PLEASE include this information in the summary.

The following recommendations serve as examples and have been taken from the old rec thread to help avoid repeats. They have been posted in no certain order except for sequels (which are listed in the order they’ve been written). Please try to look through previous recs before making new ones to help keep down multiple recc’ing of the same story. I have also included, in a separate post just after this one, a list of popular authors and their links.

I hope this thread provides everyone with hours of enjoyable reading and helps introduce you to new authors you might not have tried otherwise. Enjoy! :)

*Note*: Please be sure to check the ratings/warnings before reading...some fics may contain adult subject matter and/or strong language.

Nicole, your posting of great authors and stories is fantastic. I've read quite a few of them but I'm always looking for more and its great to see them all listed in one place.

Many thanks.

No problem! I was happy to do it :D

I come bearing a rec myself:

Wolf and Man by Gaelicspirit and Freyja529
Summary: A bad moon rises over the Winchesters when a stop for coffee and a meal turns into a hunt that threatens both of the brother's lives.

To save space, I'm just adding to this rec instead of making a new one. I've just finished this one-shot and I'm in love with it. :wub: I love pretty much everything this author does, though, and the fact that it touched on one of my favorite episodes was the icing on the cake. Run, don't walk, to read this:

Mustard Seed by kimonkey7
Summary: Sometimes when all the cosmic tumblers fall into place, you still have to jiggle the lock. Dean has something he needs take care of that's too personal to include Sam.

This one-shot is very pictorial and full of imagery. I definitely enjoyed it.

Phoenix by Sojourner84
Summary: The fire took his life, but gave him purpose. It devoured his childhood, but allowed him to shield the innocence of another. It brought back his brother to him, but not without scars.

Also, I put in a link to the SNFAs (Supernatural Fanfiction Awards) in my original post...the first link at top of individual story recs.

People, drop everything. Gaelic has a new story posting in three parts that's just mind-blowing. I'm so must give it a try (especially if you like Dean centric fiction).

She's already finished it, so don't worry about having to wait.

Linger by Gaelicspirit
Summary: An explosion removes his identity, puts him in the hands of a stranger, and forces him to fight his way back from darkness. If everything he knows is taken away, who can he trust? Who is he, really? And what if he doesn't want to remember?

Gah, I wish I could write like that...I'm like :o !

Here's a wonerful fic I just discovered by Bayre - called "What you feel".

Sam becomes a receiver for other people's feelings, while Dean has his own problems...

Its a WIP but has 6 good long chapters to get you started, and this author seems to be good about regularly updating and finishing fics. Its just wonderful, a good balance of humour, angst and adventure, its also unpredictable. It may be considered slightly crack, but don't let that put you off, it is beautiful and moving, and I love the brothers relationship in it. Dean girls and Sam girls should all enjoy.

Let me know what you think in the discussion thread :D

Here's a great little one shot ... at_Will_Be

Its really intriguing, different and beautiful. Its hard to say much about the story without giving it away. Its mostly weechester, and is incredibly powerful and sweet.

Dear Nicole, how are you doing...

found your "official fan fic recommendations thread"

and I have to tell you, I'm a sucker for Phoenix stories - all of them are just great...

Of course, I also love Ridley, Dawn N., and another writer whose penname is November Guest maybe you have heard about, you know she writes very cool stories too, and keeps me hanging on my chair for the next update all the time....

So cruel...

Pls include Phoenix stories, they are great....

Take care of yourself..

Hey, Clarice! Thanks for the rec, I'm all :blush .

I'm not sure what you mean about Phoenix...PM me and explain a little more and I'll see what I can find.

In the meantime, here is my latest rec:

Remember This by Onari
Summary: Dean looked exhausted all day. Dark circles appeared under his eyes, and he needed three times more coffee to keep functioning. He happened to be awake whenever Sam was asleep. But if he was also awake when Sam was awake, when did Dean actually sleep at all? Spoilers for AHBL I/II

AND, if you are a John fan, then you'll LOVE this:

The Color of Its Countries by kimonkey7
Summary: To sleep, perchance to wake...He had one more week before he left for boot camp. Unadulterated schmoop warning. ... _Countries

Hi Nicole, I mean Phx, it's because in her stories she posts Phoenix, but her penname is Phx, I just love her stories, can't get enough of them, of course because of your Fan Fic Recommendation, I'm getting in touch with other writers too.
You know can I give a small suggestion? You can accept it or not, I won't be mad.

Something that really drives me nuts is when somebody starts a story, I mean a really good one, and all of a sudden ... nothing ... no updates .... no explanations.... no nothing....

I think people should take into consideration that others (like me) read and enjoy and wait for an update, and what you've got is nothing...

What I mean is, if you (the writer) got a writer's block, or is in some family problem, I don't know, shouldn't he or she at least let the readers know that it might take a while for another update.

Sorry, it just pisses me off. Now when I start reading a new writer I just check to see if he/she finished other stories, because this gives some kind of reassurance that the story I'm reading will be finished, even eventually...

Anyway, that's my opinion...

Have a nice week.

When John realizes that a life on the road is affecting his sons health. He decides to try and give them a 'Normal family life' but nothing is ever that simple. Sick!Dean Limp!Sam [Dean 18][Sam 14]

This ones perfect for both hurt Dean fans, and Hurt Sam fans. Its still a work in progress but definitely worth the read.

Number 1 Crowley fan.

I've come across a couple of good fics.

The first is by pdragon76
He Ain't Heavy
A bronchial Dean stumbles across a job that brings up more between the boys than your average lugey. Warning for language. Spoilers through AHBL2, references to BUaBS

The second is by Kansas42
The Art of Breathing
Panic attacks and temper tantrums and Dean just couldn't breathe anymore. ... _Breathing

They have a similar style, usually one shots and pretty spicy language, but a lot of humour among the angst.
