Supernatural Resources for Writers

A few links from my bookmarks that I find particularly useful. A couple of general sites first of all, which are handy for show specific information. Then some sites that are handy when researching casefile type stories, and finally some useful articles and posts on specific areas of the show - travels, timeline, weapons etc.

General Supernatural Resource Sites

Supernatural Wiki
My starting point for all episode/character/creature related research. A great resource.

The Winchester Journals
Characters, episodes, equipment, lore etc.

Demons, Monsters, Angels and Spells etc.

Monstropedia
A monster/demon/angel wikipedia. A large and reliable site (as far as I've seen), full of detail.

List of Demons on Wikipedia
The mythology behind the demon and links to more details on each one.

God and Festivals
A huge list of mythological gods.

Demon's A to Z
Not a lot of detail, but can be a useful starting point.

Demon Dictionary
Again, not much detail, but useful to trawl for ideas.

Angels
Recommending this with caveats - it's messy to navigate, and details aren't always accurate, but there is a lot of information there on angels, fallen angels and related creatures.

Mythical Monsters
Assorted monsters, their culture of origin and a description.

Dave's Mythical Creatures
Pictures, descriptions, features and historical notes.

The Medieval Bestiary
A lovely site, full of medieval paintings and all sorts of historical references.

Fantastic Zoology
A great resource for getting case file ideas. Beautifully illustrated too.

American Folklore
Includes ghost stories, tricksters, urban legends and supernatural tales.

Spells and Magic
This covers all sorts, from grimoires to blood sacrifices and conjuring spirits.

Lucky Mojo Spell Archive
Covers selling yourself to the crossroads demon among many other things.
