Okay, I did like this one-shot story a lot. It's a very interesting glimpse into Lassiter's life pre-Psych, and adds nicely to his backstory without breaking cannon. Good job!
Only one bit of advice though. As a cop and firearms instructor, I did catch one error that I must point out. A Glock handgun does not have an external hammer. Not a big thing because average readers won't catch it. Unless they're gun nuts like myself. Otherwise, great job!
Author's Response: Thank you so much! I'll have to go back and fix that. I really appreciate you letting me know, because I'm totally clueless. If it's not from the Civil War or earlier, I know nothing about it. :-D Thank you again! I love getting feedback. :-)

Holy freaking WOW!!! Dude, this was like reading poetry!!!!! I LOVE the way you used the "romance and death" line and in such an agonizing way! As well as the name "Lassy" and giving a reason for why he'd hate it so much!
Reading this felt so much like reading one of the noir detective novels with blue cigarette smoke and lots of dark shadows. It just had the bluesy sorta 50s feel and it was glorious to read! The mood is absolutely stunning and I can't wait for you to post more! ASFDGFHJKHGFDGHJKHGFDGHJK,.KJHGF!!
Author's Response: Oh, wow! Thank you! I'm seriously flattered right now, because I was self-conscious about posting this one. I was concerned that it wasn't any good! So seeing your review really made my day. Thank you so much! I'm always looking for ways to put new spins on the existing bits of the show. I like giving people new things to think about. :-) And I also love the bluesy noir feel, so I'm really glad that the '50s detective mood came through in this one! Now I'm going to have to work really hard to make the next story measure up to this one. ;-) Thank you so much again! I always appreciate reading your kind reviews.

Okay,this is so good that I swear it should be Lassie's story in the actual show. It's so perfect because it has the events that would make what he is like in the first episode accurate. This is definitely going in my favorites!
Author's Response: Wow, that's high praise! Thank you so much! I was really worried that this story wouldn't be any good, so thanks for giving my ego a boost! :-D I'm glad that you think the events in the story match up to the first episode. That was what I was going for, and I was really hoping that that would translate over into the story. I really enjoy finding a quirk or running gag in the show and giving it a different twist! Thank you again!!
