Summary: There's a big pineapple in Queensland, Australia, and another in Bathurst, Eastern Cape (South Africa). I want to see a story where Shawn has visited either of these. Maybe he got a job at one of them, who knows? I can definitely see him working at a pineapple farm though. Other than that, it's up to you. Have fun!

Summary:

I really want to hear a complete story where Shawn is a dad and nobody knows about it.

Summary:

Okay so this doesnt have to be the reason she left but it could be

There are so many fics out there about Shawn being a dad but I have yet to see one where Juliet is a mom

Her kid could be boy or girl, toddler to teenager... you choose

I would personally like to see Shawn bonding with her teenage son but I would also like to read any fic where she is a mom

Also she doesnt have to be the mom she could be the child's legal guardian for some other reason

Be creative!

I would prefer any responses to be multi chapter cause I dont think this can be fully developed in a one shot but its totally up to you!

One thing is a must though: SHULES goodness!

Summary:

I challenged myself to this for another fandom, but I'd like to see what you guys can come up with while I try to write my own.

The prompts come from a chain e-mail my mom sent me. They can be used directly or just as a theme for the chapter. Any order, any characters, combine them, make them one whole story, or just a collection of one shots, as short or long as you would like, set anywhere in time. I'd love to see Shules, but it's not a requirement. The prompts are as follows:

I believe... that just because two people argue, it doesn't mean they don't love each other and just because they don't argue, it doesn't mean they do love each other.

I believe... that we don't have to change friends if we understand that friends change.

I believe... that no matter how good a friend is they're going to hurt you every once in a while and you must forgive them for that.

I believe... that true friendship continues to grow, even over the longest distance. Same goes for true love.

I believe... that you can do something in an instant that will give you heartache for life.

I believe... that it's taking me a long time to become the person I want to be.

I believe... that you should always leave loved ones with loving words. It may be the last time you see them.

I believe... that you can keep going long after you think you can't.

I believe... that we are responsible for what we do, no matter how we feel.

I believe... that either you control your attitude or it controls you.

I believe... that heroes are the people who do what has to be done when it needs to be done, regardless of the consequences.

I believe... that money is a lousy way of keeping score.

I believe... that my best friend and I can do anything or nothing and have the best time.

I believe... that sometimes, the people you expect to kick you when you're down will be the ones to help you get back up.

I believe... that sometimes when I'm angry I have the right to be angry, but that doesn't give me the right to be cruel.

I believe... that maturity has more to do with what types of experiences you've had and what you've learned from them and less to do with how many birthdays you've celebrated.

I believe... that it isn't always enough to be forgiven by others. Sometimes you have to learn to forgive yourself.

I believe... that no matter how bad your heart is broken, the world doesn't stop for your grief.

I believe... that our background and circumstances may have influenced who we are, but we are responsible for who we become.

I believe... that you shouldn't be so eager to find out a secret. It could change your life forever.

I believe... that two people can look at the exact same thing and see something totally different.

I believe... that your life can be changed in a matter of hours by people who don't even know you.

I believe... that even when you think you have no more to give, when a friend cries out to you - you will find the strength to help.

I believe... that credentials on the wall do not make you a decent human being.

I believe... that the people you care about most in life are taken from you too soon.

The happiest people don't necessarily have the best of everything. They just make the most of everything.

So, pick one and just have fun with it! =]

Summary:

Psych is known for its great lines, and so are these movies. These are the American Film Institute's Top 100 Movie Quotes of All Time, and they are just TIMELESS.

The challenge is this. Choose as many of the 100 quotes as you want and construct one-shots around them. Whether the lines are directly quoted or whether they just serve as a theme to hold the one-shot together, it doesn't matter.

You can do all 100, but that'll be hard. Just choose as many as you think you're capable of. Don't be afraid to find out more about the lines and the movies. Be creative. And have FUN XD

2. Lassiter or Gus: Mother isn't feeling quite herself today

3. Henry: Aye, and a pint of ale to you!

4. Henry: Out of all the people I would have expected to call drunk out of their mind begging for Shawn's help while being chased by a serial killer who thinks you're dating Detective Lassiter, I can honestly say you, Abigail, were not one of them. (or some version of that cuz I just love drunk dials)

Summary:

"Try living with him for 17 years." Henry Spencer Episode 112 "Game, Set... Murder?"

17? last time I checked, most kids live with their parents for at least 18. (Ok, so I was just informed that Shawn left the year early to go help his mother through her divorce, something that was mentioned in the pilot? let's make this slightly au, and pretend that never happened. =) )

 

So, write a fic, come up with an explanation of why it was only 17. Did he run away? Was he kidnapped? Did he live with his Mom for one of those years? Was he abducted by aliens??!

Chose a senario, make one up, I don't care. I just want to hear people's ideas as to why. You can set it during the year, right before, right after, during the Psych main timeline, I don't care. I just want to know!!!!

=) Have fun with it. Please? =) I really only request that it not be a one shot. If writers block attacks, or if you don't want to write anything longer, that's fine, but if you can manage it, I would lurve you forever. =)

Please, have fun!!! Angst is awesome too, so the word "fun" is fairly loose as well... XD
