There is so much Supernatural fanfic that finding the stories you want to read can be a challenge. Rec communities provide recommendations on fan creations -- primarily fiction, but also art and vids. The fans providing the recommendation will usually highlight some features of a story or fanwork that they particularly liked.

Other places which to look for stories are communities that run Fanfic challenges & exchanges, the Supernatural Fic Link Archive or one of the Fan Fic Archives. Character, pairing and genre entries on the Super Wiki also will have links to communities specific to that interest.
