I have to give another recommendation for Suzanne Collins's The Hunger Games trilogy. Not just because it reads like good fanfic, but because I actually believe that Collins intentionally wrote it to inspire fanfic. The only fanfic element that's missing is the explicit slash but then you can't really expect that in books published by Scholastic for a pre-teen audience. But everything else is here, there's even a beautiful, tragic rentboy. I'm not joking. There's a beautiful, tragic rentboy with a heart of gold nonetheless. So technically speaking, there is slash, it's just implicit not explicit. Frankly, he's not even a rentboy, he's more of a sex slave. Even better! A beautiful, tragic sex slave with a heart of gold!

If SPN still has a big fandom going by the time these books are made into movies, I fully expect a proliferation of SPN/Hunger Games crossover fic. And Suzanne Collins will be loving it.

ETA: I also have a strong suspicion that Collins may have been a Dark Angel fan. Just a hunch.
