Author has written 30 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.

Wouldn't It Be Nice? reviews
Thanks to Cas, Dean's life has suddenly turned into a 1960s beach party film. But Dean's not complaining – in fact, he kinda wants to see how this movie ends. A/N: Not a coda to s12e23, per se, though you are welcome to take it that way if you wish. Mostly, this fic is a paean to summer, and an excuse to give Cas, Dean & Sam a fun day on the beach.

Angel in the Snow reviews
It was in a modest little city in the middle of nowhere, North Dakota, that Dean first saw it: a flash of tan cloth disappearing around the corner of a building. In the length of time it took him to pull over to the curb and hastily scramble from the Impala, the half-glimpsed figure had already vanished around another corner at the end of an alleyway. "Damn," Dean mutter

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.
