The Alternate Universe Slashfic Crossover of Supernatural and The Matrix is a currently five part series, four complete and one in-progress, about the hunting team of the Neo/Dean/Smith. Along with appearances by Sam, Jessica Moore and John Winchester. In this world the hunters are rebels, that the Matrix's System allows to live in the Matrix without fear of Agents. Hunters are the ones that deal with those programs (Wendigos, Shape-Shifters etc.), and former humans whose ghosts became absorbed into the Matrix that the Agents are too busy dealing with regular rebels to deal with.

The first part is a oneshot called Hunting - Dean thinks Neo's gone for a hunt. It just happens that Neo lied about it to surprise Dean, because in reality Dean forgot that it was Valentine's Day. The link: [1] A warning while not explicit because that isn't allowed on the site, it's still mildly NSFW.

A flashback to The First Hunt is the second part with three chapters. The First Hunt details Neo's first hunt with Dean. It's a hunt for vampires that reveals Neo's UST for Dean. As it turns out hunting isn't as easy as it looks from far off. Link: [2]

Hunting and Saving is the third part and another flashback in three parts from John Winchesters point of view. John's on a hunt for vampires that are hunting women and children. He finds out that a little boy called Tom Anderson is being held captive in the vampire's nest. Link: [3]

Hunting the Shapeshifter is the fourth part with six chapters, and set a few weeks after Valentine's Day. A bunch of rich people are getting killed by their spouses at fancy events. So, what better way to hunt then getting invited to a ball thrown by one of the Matrix's most influential programs?

In the fifth part - Ghostry Hunting, currently in-progress, Bobby calls the team now consisting of Neo, Dean, Smith along with Sam and Jessica to Sioux Falls. The reason ? A grocery store called Lock's where a murder took place is being haunting, the catch the ghost only shows up to torment gay and lesbian couples. While Sam and Jessica get set up on a different case in town. Link: [4]

Hunting Series provides examples of:

  • Affectionate Nickname: Neo's "Mr. W." for John Winchester after the man saved his life in Hunting and Saving.
    • Also Neo's calling his honorary uncle "Mr. Bobby", though by the time of Ghostry Hunting he's just Bobby.
      • Dean calling Sam "Sammy" all throughout the series.
  • Batman Gambit: A complicated one in Hunting the Shapeshifter. It involves Neo, Smith, Sam and Jess making everyone think Dean is sick. So, that when 'Dean' appears healthy and uninjured they know it's a shapeshifter, and then the second Dean appears and cuts himself with a silver knife - all while the real Dean was in the hotel all along. Dean was the only one of the team that didn't know.
  • Childhood Friends: Dean, Sam and Neo starting in Hunting and Saving after they meet in the Blue Iris Hotel.
  • Creepy Blue Eyes: In Ghostry Hunting, Emily Dearing when she switches forms.
  • Dances and Balls: The Merovingian's ball in Hunting the Shapeshifter that the team is invited to attend. It ends up being a play ground for a deadly shapeshifter.
  • Demon Lords And Arch Devils: Y.E.D when he appears to John in Zion in Ghostry Hunting. Unlike all the programs, the demons are real.
  • Embarrassing Nickname: Deanna or Deananna for Dean, though he only gets called it when he annoys Bobby, Neo and Smith.
  • First-Name Basis: Bobby forces this on Smith in Ghostry Hunting, unless he wants to lose his balls. Smith goes along with it rather quickly. Smith calls Sam 'Samuel' and Jess 'Jessica' in Hunting the Shapeshifter and Ghostry Hunting.
  • Food End: Hunting and Saving ends this way. As John, Dean, Sam and Tom along with Tom's parents decide to get breakfast together in town.
  • Forgotten First Meeting: When he was an Agent Smith met Tom/Neo for the first time in Hunting and Saving, though he didn't devlop feelings for Neo until he was a rebel. Neo only fuzzily remembers it because he was a kid.
  • Full-Name Basis: Jess calls Sam 'Samuel Winchester' whenever he jokes around or ignores her.
  • Honorary Uncle: Bobby to Dean, Sam and Neo through out the series. Tom/Neo's parents to Sam and Dean as kids/teens who take them when Bobby can't.
  • Icy Blueeyes: One of Smith's defining characteristics, of the piercing variety. They go along with his mostly serious personality perfectly.
  • In-Series Nickname: Neo calls the Impala the Imp because she likes to shock him; not Smith, not Dean, Sam or Jess, only Neo. In Ghostry Hunting it's revealed that Bobby, Neo and Smith call Dean 'Deananna' sometimes.
  • I Just Want to Be Normal: As kids/teens whenever Dean and Sam were with Tom's parents was the only time, besides at Bobby's place that they get to be normal kids with Tom.
  • La RĂ©sistance: The hunters are rebels that live in the Matrix to hunt programs that kill coppertops.
  • Lovable Traitor: Despite his betrayal Agent Moore still works for the System. He even became Lead Agent after Smith chose exile.
  • Masquerade: Like the show and movie it's based on, the team has to do their best to keep the normals from finding out too much about the 'supernatural' programs.
  • Noodle Incident: The Florida case as mentioned in Ghostry Hunting, during which it snowed in May, for Neo and Dean.
  • Pre Ass Kicking One Liner: John Winchester in Hunting and Saving. "Run, Tom. You see the black car, you get in and I'll take you home in a minute." Tom runs and John proceeds to kick vampire ass.
  • Reality Warper: Neo being the One can manipulate the Matrix, so, can all the Agents and other programs to lesser extents.
  • Rogue Agent: Smith, when he goes from being the Lead Agent to being a hunter.
  • RotatingProtagonist: In Hunting the Shapeshifter the POV switches between Neo, Smith, the shapeshifter and Dean. **In Ghostry Hunting nearly everyone get's their own chapter(s).
  • Serial Killer: Sam and Jess's case in Ghostry Hunting is trying to track down and stop an unknown supernatural program who's killed, at least, three women.
  • Sixth Ranger Traitor: Agent Moore betrayed the System to one of the Merovingian's people, who tried to kidnap Neo as a kid.
  • Take a Third Option: In Hunting the Shapeshifter when the two 'Dean's appear and the team kills both of them, because the real Dean is far away.
