Fanfiction Master List

Because I've always wanted to do one of these things. :D

This journal was made primarily to get all my Supernatural fangirling out of the way, so this is all Supernatural fanfiction. (I have written a ton of anime fanfic as a teenager. If you've got a sink and smelling salts at the ready, you can check them out on my FF.N page.)

These fics are mostly gen, unless mentioned otherwise. They tend to be dark and twisty and pretentious, so please heed the warnings under each title. Also, I should probably warn you that most of these fics are un-beta'd. :)
