Summary: Chuck decides to make a sock-puppet. When no one reads his fic, he wonders what he has to do to get noticed in SPN fandom.

Reccer's notes: This fic series capitalizes on all the metafictional possibilities presented to us as soon as Chuck Shurley appeared on the scene. It's written as a fandom_wank write-up and details from a third-person perspective - with copious quotations and links to outside sources - the disaster that occurs when the creator of the Supernatural novels sneaks into his own fandom. This is about fandom as much as it is about SPN canon, and a fascinating exploration it is. Perhaps the most interesting part, to me, is what becomes of the fandom - and the canon - once Chuck Shurley disappears for good. Who's writing the stories now?

[Short excerpt]I’m about to link this on bad_penny.

Remember chuck_writes? Wank All Star that lord_kripke and the other Super Gnats took down with a wrecking ball? That chuck_writes?

Turns out that chuck_writes was actually a sock for Carver Edlund (which was actually a pseud for his real name, Chuck Shurley. No wonder he used a pseud). You read that right. chuck_writes is THE Carver Edlund-author of Supernatural books, beloved by the masses, worshipped by lord_kripke and the SPN Super Nats-that Carver Edlund.
