Sooooo I've started watching Supernatural for real, and I'm kinda obsessed. Like up-until-three-am-watching-netflix-ignoring-my-roomates-and-our-friends kind of obsessed.

But, I need two things from ya'll: first ALL THE FIC RECS. Paring is immaterial as long as it's well written and won't spoil me for anything past season 4. Fics about minor characters are always a plus, and I won't turn down crack fics and AU's.

Second thing, in my limited exploration into fic, I've seen a shitton of Real Person Fic. I mean, I try to ignore most RPF (with a few exceptions of course) but there seems to be more then I've ever seen in any fandom. Is this just me spending too many years in small fandoms?

OMG YOU TOO CAN WE TALK SO MUCH ABOUT THIS SHOW?!

I don't have a lot of fic recs because I'm not done yet either and so I've mostly been avoiding, but I have a couple, how far are you?

UMM YES! I know you've been talking about it over on your journal and i need to check it out but omg I don't even know what I am feeling sometimes.

I am two episodes away from the end of season 4, using snickfic's abridged watchers guide to get though most of it without calling in sick from work to watch it all (tempting as it is) and I'm about to plow through a huge hunk of season five tonight.

I've been avoiding fic and meta and recaps like the plague, but Its sooo hard...

No, you aren't imagining it, at least in my opinion. It seems to me as if there is LOTS more SPN RPF than any other fandom.
duh i read: [ats]: Chattingduh_i_read on March 10th, 2012 05:22 am (UTC)
Like, I'm both confused and fascinated, because never have I never experienced RPF so integrated in the fandom. I mean, I'm kinda fascinated because most fandom's treat RPF as a dirty little secret, but I don't know if I wanna start digging, least I get sucked in...

No, it's not just you, SPN fandom IS particularly RPF-enthusiastic.

Also, my SPN memories.

Ohh! Thanks!

Re: Beware all who enter here!
I'm a little afraid about how sucked in I'm about to be. Like I don't already spend too much of my life reading fanfic and yelling and nerds on tumblr.

Bela! I want to just write fanfic of her being awesome. And yes to Bela/Dean and Ruby/Sam.

Nothing like dropping in late...

So yes, RPF is huge in SPN fandom. To some extent it operates independently nowadays; there are plenty of, say, Jared/Jensen fans who got turned off the show at one point or another but still write RPF. Some of the RPF makes pretenses about pertaining to the actual actors, but I'd say the majority is about totally AU scenarios of various levels of crackiness. Lots of werewolf AUs and Jared-and-Jensen-IN-SPACE AUs and winged AUs and pretty much everything you can think of (and then SO MUCH MORE BESIDES).

It's utter crack, is what it is.

For SPN recs, I've made some posts. Spoilers are clearly marked, and I try really hard to keep the descriptions spoiler-free. If you're big on Sam, kroki_refur's stuff in particular is a good place to start. She has the full gamut, from AAANGST to total crack.

I'm glad you're finding the watchers' guides useful. :)

The party don't start to you walk in!

Just from my limited fanfic searches, I've noticed how huge and..I donno, shameless RPF is in the fandom. Yeah, I've seen a lot of strange strange AU's.

I think SPN will be the fandom that breaks my no RPF rule.

Thanks for the recs and your watchers guide has been INVALUABLE to my viewing experience. Like, i want to bake you cookies and mail them to you invaluable.

"Shameless" is an excellent word for SPN RPF fandom. Yes. *points to icon*

You are most welcome! I am so glad the guides are of use. :)
