The Supernatural Virtual Season is a community based series of gen fan fiction "episodes" that diverge away from the episode Shadow which aired during the first season. Each season was divided into 'aired episodes' with authors posting their fan fiction and art according to a fictional broadcast schedule. Stories were accompanied by poster art, 'episode' music[1] and occasionally songvids.

Seasons 1-2 were completed between 2006 and 2007. Season 3 was begun in 2008 and the final season, Season 4 concluded in 2009. Eventually some of the stories featured on the virtual seasons were bound into fanzines.

From the About page:[2]

The Supernatural Virtual Season was first conceived in January 2006. A group of writers from the Supernatural.tv message forum decided to write their own version of events taking up from the original 'Supernatural' episode 'Shadow' and continuing with our own plots and story arcs from there on. As we began to work, we realized that we actually needed to split and form two seasons. One season for prose, and one for script format. The 'split' took place in late April, and work once again began on each season. This time, however, we decided to start from the season one finale, 'Devil's Trap.'
Our first seasons began in July and September respectively, and have followed the same 'airing' pattern that 'Supernatural' does. Each episode is posted on a Tuesday evening and is in four acts. An act is posted each night.
Episodes have their own poster ads, just like the real show, and each prose episode is complete with images and music.
