Fan Fiction
 
As usual we have several challenges and community fan fiction sites up and running.  Some are accepting submissions. Some have been completed and some are waiting to publish. In all cases there is lots of new fic out there!

This project aims to be more than just online fan fiction. They hope to publish their entries. For those writers on the site, there are currently two spots still open. Submission guidelines are here.
 

Welcome to SPN Short Stories! We’re a project dedicated to creating a collection of short fan fiction stories, to be printed in a book that you can have and hold and cherish for yourself. Various information about the project can be found throughout our pages, but here’s a brief summary of what we’re doing.

We’re collecting original works from various fandom authors who’ve agreed to be a part of this project, and each of those works will correspond to one of the collection’s themes. These pieces will be gen, canon-compliant, and shorter than 1200 words each. Each work will be newly written for this project and previously unpublished.

The book isn’t meant to tell a story, but rather, to be a collection of snapshots- bits and pieces of the characters and universe that we have come to know and love over the past twelve years; it’s something of a monument to the show that’s done so much for us, as well as the incredible fandom that’s been built around it.

Once the authors have been properly accounted for, we’ll be running a Kickstarter campaign to fund the book’s printing and distribution, while any net profit will be donated (specifics to be determined- look here for more). Helping us fund the Kickstarter will give you an opportunity to get a copy of the book yourself, as well as any additional rewards we may add along the way. Depending on general feedback, we may also print a few additional copies of the book to be sold post-campaign (with profits going, again, to the charity or charities we’ve selected). 

Overall, this project is a labour of love that’s been in the works for a few months now, and that we’ll hopefully be able to see through to completion over the next little while. Feel free to check out our other pages for more detailed information about this project, or send us an ask if there’s anything you’re not sure about. Thank you, and have a wonderful day!

 
 
Author submissions closed, Artist submissions still available. Posting starts in September 2017.
 
This Bang event is for Supernatural and Supernatural RPF fanfics that focus on the relationships between Dean, Sam and Castiel, or Jared, Jensen and Misha. Team Free Will BB stories can be gen, or have a particular pairing, or threesome or poly construct.
What’s important is that all three characters are present and are the focus of the story.
For example:You can write a Sam/Cas story that also explores the deep friendship between Dean and Cas, and Sam and Dean’s brother relationship.You cannot write a Sam/Dean story in which Cas does not appear, or a Dean/Cas story where Sam is off doing research for most of the story.
 
Celebrating Sam  Submissions closed, posting to begin May 1.
 

What’s the best way to celebrate the birthday of our favorite little brother? By creating the things you do best - fics, graphics, gif sets, poems, vids, any and all fanworks devoted to Sam Winchester. @ohsamtumbles and @spnlittlebro are teaming up to host a cross-platform birthday extravaganza the week of Sam’s birthday, and here’s how it’s going to work:

  • Saturday, March 25th: OhSam LiveJournal comm will put up a masterpost for people to leave one- or two-word prompts (for example: “autumn”, “blood loss”, “surprise”). For those who don’t have LJ accounts, no worries! Anon commenting will be available on the post for you to leave prompts (please leave one prompt per comment, which will make it easier to keep track of prompts and fills).
  • Saturday, April 1st: The masterpost for prompts will close, and no new prompts can be added after this point. There won’t be any claims - each prompt is open and can have multiple fills. We’re excited to see the variety of things you all come up with! 
  • April: You have the month of April to work on fills. These should be hurt/comfort, Sam-centric original work (fic, art, graphics, poetry, vids, you name it!).
  • Monday, May 1st to Sunday, May 7th:
  • Another masterpost will go up on OhSam LJ to keep track of the fills, and you can begin posting your work on either LJ or tumblr. 
  • If you post a fill on LJ, comment on the masterpost with a link. 
  • Tumblr users tag their creations here with #celebratingsam and we will be reblogging those. If you can, post a link on LJ when you fill a prompt. (If you can’t, let the mods at @spnlittlebro or @ohsamtumbles know and we will make sure a link is added and people know the prompt’s been filled).

We have the Supernatural Alternate Universe Big Bang. Sign ups begin May 1. Rules are here.
 

Do you like to write AU’s? Do you like writing about Crowley selling puppies to Sam more than him being the King of Hell?? Do you like writing about John being a nice dad who cares about his kids with all his heart??? 

Look no further, because the SPN AU Bang is here to cater to all your AU needs. The purpose of this bang is to increase the non-canon content in our fandom. You have the freedom to write anything (with the exception of the restricted items, as stated in the rules), as long as it isn’t canon. 

From May to December, we will be hosting this bang!
