When Rowena is in a romantic pairing she is featured in both het and femslash ships, some of her het pairings include:

Rowena's femslash fanworks are most often focused on reader inserts or original female characters, although there are fans of the Charlie Bradbury/Rowena MacLeod pariing, with either the original Charlie or alt!Charlie from Apocalypse World

Common Tropes in Fanworks

  • Pastfic: focusing on her 300+ years of life and what may have occurred during that time
  • Crowley: Rowena had an extremely complicated relationship with her son, some writers will try to explore this further, either looking at the past, when she partially raised her son, or when they were reunited when Crowley was King of Hell
  • Casefic: assisting Dean and Sam on their hunts or other encounters with the supernatural
  • Sassy Rowena: Rowena is often portrayed as delivering cheeky or biting commentary, this is sometimes played up in fic
  • Bisexual: some fans headcanon Rowena as bisexual, she is obviously flirtatious with male characters, but some also interpret her limited interactions with others female characters as flirtatious
  • Supporting Character: sometimes a featured secondary character in stories focused on Sam and Dean
