I LOVED this! I loved how it seamlessly melded from the episode into your story.
I have to quote this whole section:
“He saw a medic on site,” Gus offered, “I was just taking him home to get cleaned up.”
“What are you, my voice over guy? I can speak for myself, Gus.”
“Hey suck it up, Shawn. Sometimes I go through a whole scene without any lines. You don’t see me complaining.”
“That’s because you’re the token black guy.” Shawn pulled out his awesome impression of ‘the Token Black Guy’ from not another teen movie. “You’re just supposed to smile, stay out of the conversation and say things like ‘Shit.’ ‘Damn.’ and ‘That is whack.’”
“That is whack.” Gus agreed.
THIS IS HYSTERICAL! Completely, 100% Shawn and Gus!
LOVED the sitting up/standing down. :)
"By now Shawn was trying to do his best Don LaFontaine impression but was sounding more like Bill Paxton’s character in True Lies." EPIC!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I can completely imagine the voice in my head! EPIC!!!!
"There was a short pause before his father strode over to the door, passing his hand over Shawn’s head as he went passed..." Some Henry love!!!!!!!!!!!! Yay!!!!!!!!!!!!!! This was so minor, but it stood out SO much!
Wonderful, wonderful tag, Rose.

this was wonderful. thanks for giving some resolution to that episode in terms of the aftermath of Shawn's fight/beat down. ;p Gus is such a great friend to Shawn-- and that was a real nice banter/reference moment you did there with the "that is whack!" bit. Really sweet father/son moment too in the latter half. Thanks for sharing this. Look forward to more from you!
Author's Response: You picked up the Not Another Teen Movie reference! hahaha, and with a re-read I note that I've written "whacked" instead o' "whack" *edits* (thanks :p). I find it hilarious that the "token black guy" was modelled on Dule Hill's character in She's All That. Sometimes I don't know how Dule does it on Psych, going through some scenes with no lines at all, lol. But he's awesome. And, Gus really is such a great friend, right? Hee, thank you so much for your thoughtful review, it is wholly and hugely appreciated :) Dude, I'm glad it gave you some resolution 'cause... I think I kind of needed it too. Thanks for reinforcing my decision to share *g* Definitely look forward to sharing more. Thanks again :p

I think it's really good, and definitely in character. You did a really good job with the dialogue, too, seemed like it could easily be from the show. I'd love to see you write more if the inspiration ever comes along. Great job!
Author's Response: I am so flattered and chuffed by your review! Thanks a million for taking the time and giving me some feedback. Hee, and sweeeet, I'd be rly happy to publish my other writing. It's so much more fun when there's someone enjoying. thanks again! :)

You showed the relationship that Henry and Shawn have perfectly. They were really in character.
I love the last line, where Shawn gives a small smile. It's so Shawn. It also says so much with just so little.
Author's Response: Very amazing? What a lovely review! I am so glad that you felt it was in character and enjoyed it!! Thanks a million for your review precious! x

Aww, this was an awesome little snippet! Very funny too :) You should definitely write more fics, you've got a knack of keeping it in character and with the same feel as the show does! Can't wait to read your next one XX
