2. Fics will be “due” 9/30 but if you need an extension, just ask me. I’m not gonna say no.

3. Can be any character OR actor from Supernatural. 

4. READER INSERT ONLY. NO SHIPS. Don’t want the drama they will surely bring.

5. No minimum word count. Max word count 5000. 

6. Can be smut, fluff, angst, flangst, smangst, smuff, whatever. I’m down for anything.

7. AU’s are welcome!

8. Can be a drabble, one shot, the start of a new series, or part of an existing series. Does not matter.

9. You can do anything you want with the song whether it’s playing in the background, you use the lyrics, or just use it as inspiration.

10. Must tag ME in your fic when you post it and also use the hashtag #Songs of Season 2 Challenge (sorry it’s long I know) in the first 5 tags. Please put the Song Title and Artist somewhere in the header of your post.
