Supernatural, a TV show about a duo of demon-fighting brothers, doesn’t have the most viewers. But it’s lasted nine seasons so far — partly because of its passionate fans, who take their love to Twitter, Tumblr and fan fiction websites. That raises a question: What matters more, ratings or fans’ enthusiasm?

Yes, yes, that’s all well and good. But let’s cut to the REAL STORY:
Supernatural fan fiction has been penned by no less of a literary personage than S.E. Hinton, who’s much better known for authoring classic young adult novels, including The Outsiders and That Was Then, This Is Now. She enjoys fan fiction’s anonymity, so she refused to offer any clues about how to find hers.
"If you come across one that’s just really good, that’s mine,” she told NPR.
S. E. Hinton writes Supernatural fan fiction. Day. Is. Made.
Stay gold, S.E. Hinton. Stay gold.
Books I look forward to this 2014 [ part 01 ]
