Summary: Simply put, Shawn is in a cage. Why exactly, and how long it is before he gets out is up to you. Put him in a cage. It'd be good if it was locked.

Seriously, I can't believe nobody's thought of this. Write a fic where Shawn meets a psychic. A real one! Personally, I'd prefer a sarcastic teenager who knows automatically that Shawn is a total fake, but that's just me.

  • Must be your original character, no crossovers or whatnot
  • Has to be involved in a case
  • Be creative! Have fun! I might actually write one of these if I have time...

Let's see how creative you can be. Ready, set, write!

Due to circumstances of your choosing, either:
a) Lassiter is desperate/frustrated/drunk enough to break down and ask (demand) that Shawn tell him how he does it


b) Shawn feels sympathetic/guilty/magnanimous enough to offer Lassiter advice.

Thus, awkward detective lessons must ensue. This doesn’t have to be a reveal story by any means – this is about Shawn trying to re-teach someone else the lessons his dad taught him. How would Shawn do as a teacher? Would he have the patience for it? How would he explain his thoughts?

Bonus points if you can have Shawn teach while still being his hedgy and evasive self. Because, dude – just ‘cause he knows how to be a good detective doesn’t mean he’s not psychic, too!

Let's face it. Shawn is always the one who gets kidnapped. So instead, let's see someone else get captured for a change. Whether it be Lassiter, Gus, Jules, or even Buzz McNabb, you decide. Just make sure Shawn is the one who's searching.

Make sure the readers know what's going on on both sides, the searchers', and the kidnappee's.

Otherwise, go to town, and have fun with it.

We've all seen on the show how Lassiter barely tolerates Shawn's presence. Asking him for help is something he'd never think of on his own, not without prompting.

But even if Lassiter doesn't believe in Shawn's psychic powers, he has to admit that Spencer gets the job done.

I challenge you to write a story in which Lassiter can't help but to ask for Shawn's assistance. Something has come up which means trouble for our favourite head detective. And that's Trouble with a capital "T".

It can be an old case, an Internal Affairs investigation, evidence pointing to him having committed a crime, something from his personal life popping up, anything. He doesn't necessarily need to get arrested, but he needs to get into serious trouble. So serious that he doesn't see any chance but to ask Shawn for help.

Show me how our stickler for the rules gets into trouble, so serious that nobody sees an immediate chance to get him out of it again. Show me how he battles with himself but finally caves in and asks Shawn for help.

Other than that, you can basically do with the challenge what you want. Pick any genre you like, involve the characters you want to have, take the story to wherever you want to, just go ahead and have fun!

Any takers? I'm waiting!

Summary: At some point sooner or later everyone will find out about Shawn and Juliet dating, I would like to see a story where we see people one by one catching them unaware.  Juliet and Shawn seem to mostly want to avoid Lassiter knowing, but them trying to do that constantly puts them in the way of other people seeing them in compromising positions. So basically they sneak around and fail at it miserably.

Must Have:

* Oblivious Lassiter.
* Shawn giving an excuse that includes slipping on a banana-peal and CPR.
* Henry must grind his teeth in frustration at least once.
* Lassiter should be the last one to find out and must be miffed about everyone else knowing.

Can't Have:

* Really can't think of anything, there's nothing you can't add.

In "Dislodged", we got to know that Shawn had a pet as a child. And that poor little Chairman Meow (who in fact was Chairwoman Meow) ended up in a cat-retirement home somewhere because, according to Henry, it "got a little too familiar with the armrest of my sofa".

Dudes, I so want that story. How did Shawn end up with a cat in the first place? How did Chairman Meow end up with its name? Why didn't Shawn notice that it was no little boycat at all? And - most importantly - what exactly happened between the Chairman and the armrest?

Go crazy with it!

Summary: Ah yes a challenge about challenges, challenge to a duel perhaps making a personal challenge though a Henry-Lassister challenger would be awesome

Summary: Ok folks, here are two challenges that I would like to issue: 1. I love stories about young Shawn (like circa 1988 or so). What if Shawn was being targeted (and/or threatened) because Henry was getting too close to the bad guys during an investigation? Could young Shawn out-smart the bad guys with his powers of observation and the skills the big-pappa-monkey taught him? 2. I have always thought that the escape from the mine in High-Noonish was way too easy and has great potential for some serious whump! I challenge you to write an alternative scene for the mine escape. Feel free to invite the rest of the gang up for a "joint rescue operation" with Old Sonora! Good Luck!

Something happens to one of the characters and it effects Shawn.

I would like someone to write about something that happens to one of the characters. It can be any character except Shawn. then you must write about how it changes Shawn.

Thank you
