Editor's Note: This story of a mystery in Kenmore, Washington first appeared in the comments section on Nightsky's latest "Threads" review. A debut story from an aspiring writer, this script was worthy of a fate more distinguished than being lost forever among the hundreds of doomed stories that are submitted every day to television producers "for their consideration." There are already two episodes in the Sockchester brothers' adventures but with a little encouragement, I think we can nudge White Bat into writing more. I also hear rumors of wardrobe and set departments being created by fellow #WFBFamily members to boost White Bat's start-up production venture! 

The WFB's "Fan Fiction Friday" proudly presents the pilot episode of Socknatural!

Kenmore, Washington

The Cardboard ImpalaTM slowly pulls up to the edge of a lake.  Plastic fronds hang over the side of the lake, making dark shadows near the shoreline despite the pristine day.  The lake is shaped oddly like the inside of a washing machine drum.  A shallow island marks a central spot in the lake.  

Sock Dean steps out: So there it is, Lake Washington. Doesn't look like there's a monster hiding in there.

Sock Sam leans his head out of the window: Does it ever? Okay, so in the last twenty years over thirty people have gone missing here in Kenmore, Washington. Interesting fact, they all were one half of a set. Spouses, twins, close siblings. The spouse or sibling filed the missing persons report.

Sock Dean:  Wait.  Siblings?  Like Us? 

Sock Sam gives Sock Dean a look:  You're not going to lose me Dean.  

This week I’m counting down Supernatural’s Favorite Episodes, Number 90 to Number 81! I won’t re-hash all the details about this epic project (which were described in "The Road So Far" introduction), so I’ll just quickly remind you that this list of Favorite Episodes is based on the rankings submitted to me from several participants, including admins and staff writers from The WFB, as well as admins from websites Fangasm and Super-Fan-Wiki. Each individual’s rankings were tallied to determine Supernatural's Top 100 Favorite Episodes (seasons 1 to 14), and a friendly reminder that “tallied” means my computer-expert hubs took the excel spreadsheet and applied his math-genius skills, resulting in a formula that weighted and ranked the final results.

So let’s get to this week’s countdown!



Welcome back to "Top Six Favourites Episodes", this time for season four. These are, still to this day, the nearest and dearest to my heart, my comfort episodes, the ones I go to when I need a laugh or a cry or the comfort of an old friend. 

Before you read my list, make your own list of season 4 favourites! It will be fun to compare your unbiased choices (before you are unduly influenced by my memories or picks) to mine.  If you're joining Nightsky and The WFB in the #SPNSummer2019 Rewatch, or rewatching at your own pace this hiatus, the episodes should be fresh in your mind! Save your list then, because you'll need it for TOP 100 Episode challenge that The Winchester Family Business is running all hiatus! Nightsky reveals her Top 6 season 4 favourites after mine, so you'll have two WFB staff lists as a comparison!

So without further ado, here's my list of Season Four Favourites! The list is by order of appearance only, as they all are equal in their importance to me. 

You thought we forgot about this, didn't you?  Sure, we're a little delayed from years past, but how could we not take time to look back at Season 14?  How can we not offer the opportunity to the fans to speak out about what they loved, what they hated, and what they were indifferent to in this now official second to last season?  That would be heartless!  

Ever since season seven a certain number of award categories have been set aside and offered to you, the SPN fans, for judgement.  It gives the fandom that chance to be heard, just because we care.  Before I can come up with a final vote though, we need nominations! 

I have pre-selected 17 award categories where you, the Supernatural fan, will eventually select the winner.  Just list your nominations for each category in the comments.  

The WFB is excited to present a new feature called Fan Fiction Fridays, a summer series that runs every 2 weeks during hiatus!  Starting June 21st, follow Sam,  Dean and their friends, and see what kind of adventures they have over the summer months!

To add to the fun, YOU get to help pick where the focus of these fictional stories go next, based on our Fan Fiction Poll questions: Who, What, Why, When, and How? The first Poll question was "Who would you like to see featured in an original fan fiction story?" The top vote getter was Sam, so he’ll be leading us off on the path to a summer adventure! Next up will be the second place winner, and so on.

Watch our Polls page for a new question, coming soon.  In the meantime, let’s start our summer adventure with Sam, and his mysterious Thursday night excursions....

Welcome back to The Winchester Family Business' countdown of Supernatural's Top 100 episodes for the Road So Far, i.e. seasons 1 to 14! This week I begin by revealing the Top 100 list starting with episodes 100 to 91!

Before I get to these episodes, let’s recap how this project came to be. Administrators and staff writers from The WFB, Super-Fan_Wiki and Fangasm each ranked their favorite episodes from 1 to 100, then I tallied all of those votes to determine the consolidated ranking of the Top 100 episodes. And when I say I tallied the votes, what I really mean is that my hubs applied some high-level math wizardry to an excel spreadsheet, successfully tallying, formulating, weighting and ranking the final results. Remember, folks, it’s all about the Math and, say it with we – Math Don’t Lie. The participants represented a broad cross-sampling of groups within the Supernatural fandom. You can learn more about the project, participants' backgrounds, the voting process and the final, warded results in last week's introduction to this ambitious project! It also revealed a few episodes that didn't make the list, but were so close they deserve Honorable Mentions

So shall we get to this week’s episodes?



I attend FanX, a cross-fandom convention held in Salt Lake City, Utah, every year (usually twice). This year, Mark Pellegrino and Samantha Smith from Supernatural appeared at the convention in April. They did a panel together - they worked so well together on stage! I’ve seen a handful of Supernatural actors at other cons, including Mark Sheppard and Osric Chau, but this was my first time seeing Mark Pellegrino and Samantha Smith. My group even did a photo op with them!

Enough about that! I’m here to tell you the highlights from their panel!

Welcome back to "Top Six Favourite Episodes", this time for season three. These are still, to this day, the nearest and dearest to my heart, my comfort episodes, the ones I go to when I need a laugh or a cry or the comfort of an old friend. 

Before you read my list, make your own list of season 3 favorites! It will be fun to compare your unbiased choices (before you are unduly influenced by my memories or picks) to mine.  If you're joining Nightsky and The WFB in the #SPNSummer2019 Rewatch, or rewatching at your own pace this hiatus, the episodes should be fresh in your mind! Save your list then, because you'll need it for TOP 100 Episode challenge that The Winchester Family Business unveiled last week! Nightsky reveals her Top 6 season 3 favorites after mine, so you'll have two WFB staff lists as a comparison!

So without further ado, here's my list of Season Three Favourites! The list is by order of appearance only, as they all are equal in their importance to me.
