Six Joannabeth Harvelle/Dean Winchester recs and one Ellen Harvelle/Castiel.

Fandom Category: Supernatural
Pairing: Joannabeth Harvelle/Dean Winchester, Gwen Campbell/Sam Winchester
Fic Title: Lost and Found, Nothing and Everything, and Killing the Fandom
Author: Kasey84773
Link: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/6464396/1/Lost_and_Found
Rating/Warning(s): PG-13 to R. Mostly due to violence and implied sexy times. Spoilers through season 6. Minor character deaths.
Genre: Supernatural, horror, romance, friendship, babyfic, retelling, adventure, action, angst, and AU.
WIP?: Each story is complete, but there's definitely room for the series to continue.

Why This Must Be Read: This is the best, plottiest resurrection/retelling of season 6/7 that I've ever read. Each of its stories is novel-length, and reads like a great serialized arc. Gwen, who we got to briefly meet in the beginning of season 6 is fleshed out and given a rich and interesting background, and we definitely get a lot more Jo and Ellen. But the thing that I like best about this whole series is how well-rounded all of the characters are. They're flawed and funny and heartbreaking in their own ways. And while "Killing the Fandom" is the funniest and lightest of the lot, all of it's worth reading and has kept me highly entertained for the last week and a half.

Fic Title: Lessons Lacking and Learned
Author: Kasey8473
Link: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/5567162/1/Lessons_Lacking_and_Learned
Rating/Warning(s): PG-13
Genre: Humor, romance, AU.
WIP?: Complete.

Why This Must Be Read: This author has some great diversity to her skill set. I remember reading this story forever ago and being incredibly charmed by the idea of Castiel and Ellen canoodling. It's also got some great Jo and Castiel causing problems and Gabriel saving the day in a pretty evil way. But it's really worth it.

Fic Title: The Curse of the Winchester Women
Author: Silverspoon and WelshWitch1011
Link: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/6906898/1/The_Curse_of_the_Winchester_Women
Rating/Warning(s): PG-13. Spoilers through season 6.
Genre: Supernatural, romance, suspense, adventure, action, friendship, angst, AU.
WIP?: Yes, and it stops at a bit of a cliff-hanger.

Why This Must Be Read: Another retelling of season 6, with added Jo and Ellen. This is seriously fun and is very episodic in its approach. I love the growing relationship between Jo and Dean, and there's an active level of suspense that pushes through it. I like how acknowledging this story is of the problematic nature of women in the Supernatural universe. I love the breezy style of the prose and how well the characters integrate.

Fic Title: The Crow
Author: Beloved Stranger
Link: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/5968932/1/The_Crow
Rating/Warning(s): PG-13. Character death implied.
Genre: Supernatural, angst, AU, adventure.
WIP?: Yes, and apparently abandoned.

Why This Must Be Read: I've not read a lot of stuff that focuses so completely on the process of Jo's resurrection. This has got beautiful prose (really, REALLY beautiful prose) and the story works its tail off to keep the process and motivations solely on Jo. I also love the idea of a rebellion in Heaven and how, while it's egged on by the Winchesters, it isn't focused ON them.
