''The goal of the site designers and Admins is to promote a higher quality of fanfiction, that while not appearing on our television screens each week, are nonetheless, inspired, original and worthy of being told. Tell us something we didn't know. Make us think. Take fanfiction to a new level of intelligence and quality. Share your genius."

Supernaturalville was a gen Supernatural fan fiction archive. It is subtitled: Unscripted Genius. It has been online since 2006. As of April 2011 it has over 3000 stories archived and over 9000 members. The archive also has a forum, The Vaults, where fans can discuss the fiction, issue challenges and vote for Fan Fiction Awards. The site also hosts the Supernatural Virtual Season.

Categories

Fan fiction is divided into the following categories (the numbers after each category represents the numbers of stories in each category as of April 5, 2011):

Types of Fiction Accepted

The archive does not accept slash or RPS adult fiction. Mature rated heterosexual romance stories are permitted, but "stories containing sexual situations involving minors- including stories of rape or sexual abuse of young Dean or young Sam- will not be accepted." The forum explains the policy in greater detail:

Pornography (IN ANY FORM) will not be allowed. Yes-we all have our fantasies - but lets keep them firmly tucked away in the privacy of our imaginations. Additionally, just like the Fiction Site - we will not allow discussions that involve SLASH, WINCEST, BROMANCE, or any other sexual relationship between the main characters that deviates from the show canon. This is not a reflection on the beliefs of the site owners, admins or moderators- however- this site is dedicated to a show about two brothers- non-romantically involved with each other or represented in anything other than a heterosexual manner. If you havent seen the interviews where Jared or Jensen have been asked about fanfic- look them up. We will continue to be respectful to the characters that Eric Kripke has created and that the actors have poured heart and soul into developing."

There are additional submission requirements:

  1. All new submissions will go through Admin for validation. Once an author's quality and dedication to the rules of submission are demonstrated, Admin will validate the author. This allows the author to post directly to the Just Added page without Admin approval.
  2. It is expected that submissions will utilize proper grammar, spelling and formatting. While Admin is not trying to be the 'grammar-nazi'- we will decline any submission that falls short of these standards.

Awards

Starting in 2008, the forums began offering Awards to writers who posted their fan fiction on the site. The ballot offers a wide variety of categories, many with amusing names or titles, often based on lines from the show. Descriptions come from the 2008 ballot.
