Author has written 21 stories for Supernatural.

I have written for various fandoms over the years: Star Trek TOS, Starsky & Hutch, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Lord of the Rings, The Professionals and Supernatural to name a few. I am currently quite happily obsessed with the Castiel/Dean Winchester pairing.

You can find me on LiveJournal or Tumblr (melanieathene) and AO3 (Melanie_Athene) if you're looking for MA-rated versions of my longer stories. Here, you will only find "cleaned-up" versions to comply with fanfiction.net's rating policy.


ETA Dec 23, 2012. I would like to thank each and every one of you for all the lovely comments you have left on my stories. I would also like to apologize for the long hiatus in my To Err Is Human series, and I assure you that I fully intend to continue it. In fact, chapter 19 will be appearing sometime between now and the new year. Thank you for your patience, and I hope you all have a safe and happy holiday season.


ETA May 18, 2014. For those of you still following my To Err Is Human series, I want to assure you that I haven't abandonded it -- it is far too dear to my heart to ever do that. RL has severely cut into my writing time, but I write as much as I can whenever I can. Chapter 24 should appear here within the next few weeks (it is in beta), and I think chapter 25 will see the story (finally!) come to an end. Thank you for all the wonderful feedback I have received. I wish I could thank each one of you individually, but be assured your comments have all been treasured.

Silence reviews
A post 8x23 plot bunny that was derailed by the season 9 preview and will never now become a full-fledged fic. But I think it stands on its own as a ficlet, so I'm posting it as an AU.
