Story Notes:

Note: Though this story is an "alternate" version from the Yin/Yang trilogy, I hesitate to label it with the "alternate universe" genre. This story was started Pre-Season 4, before "Mr. Yin Presents" and "Yang 3 in 2D", and I had/have no plans to include any details from either of those episodes here. I really want this story to be about Yang returning as the "bad guy" and wreaking havoc in her own "special" ways—as well as about Yang vs. Shawn, and other aspects all Pre-Seasons 4 and 5, with the exception of the romantic components regarding Shawn and Juliet. 

1. Prologue: So You've Heard, I Crossed Over The Line by silverluna [Reviews - 22] starstarstarstarstar (3688 words)

Disclaimer: All publicly recognizable characters, settings, etc. are the property of their respective owners. The original characters and plot are the property of the author. The author is in no way associated with the owners, creators, or producers of any media franchise. No copyright infringement is intended.

In other words, I own absolutely nothing having to do with Psych. This story is purely for fun and still, alas, no money is being made by me from it. I also do not own any of the songs from which I may name the chapters after.

I credit Wikipedia for information about the concept Yin Yang, VW Beetles and Glocks.

 

Main Characters: Shawn Spencer, Juliet O'Hara, Carlton Lassiter, Karen Vick, "Mr. Yang", Mary Lightly

Other Characters: Burton "Gus" Guster, Buzz McNab, Henry Spencer, others

Pairings: Shawn Spencer/Juliet O'Hara (minor-ish to major-ish Shules)

Genres: Hurt/Comfort/"Whumpage", Suspense, Drama, Mystery.

Timeline: Season Three/Pre-Season Four. I'm counting six months from late February (when the episode aired) to mid-to-late July.

Rating is for language, violence and whumpage.

Author's Note: My third Psych fic! And at the same time as another one, but I didn't want to hold off on this one so I hope I can do both at the same time. Well, I know practically everyone has had an idea about this episode, but I guess I do too. Absolutely no character is safe from whump, and there will be much of it. As always, I appreciate reviews and feedback. Happy reading!

Author's Note: Thanks for your patience and continued support; I've been out of sorts lately. (I hope the chapter length makes up for some of the wait time.) As always, I greatly appreciate reviews and feedback. I researched some, but also kind of fudged some of the medical details, just to let you know. And if you feel the need to criticize, please be constructive. I'm an aspiring author like many of the rest of you, and thus am very cut into by unnecessary negativity. Special thanks to all of you authors out there who inspire me. :) Many, many thanks.

 

Mild spoilers/ references to Season Three's Tuesday the 17th and Lassie Did A Bad, Bad Thing.

 

***This chapter makes some minor references to my story "Ask For Another Day", as soon I will be introducing a character from that story into this one (as requested). It isn't required to read that one first, but just be aware of these references. Thank you. ***

Author's Note: Thanks for your patience and support; I know, very long delay. I greatly appreciate your reviews and feedback which so help keep me motivated. If you feel the need to criticize, please be constructive. I don't mind hearing opinions and insights; always trying to improve! I'm taking some liberties this chapter when it comes to the forensic ballistics/ processing DNA speedily. *Makes note to ask my experts later*

 

Great thanks to everyone who has read and reviewed so far— *hugs for everyone*

Don't own references to Men's Fitness. Also, the estimated distance from Los Angeles to Santa Barbara via car is about an hour and forty minutes to three hours, with traffic, according to WikiAnswers(dot)com.

 

Author's Note: This chapter shows an AU version of the Shawn-Abigail relationship. Time lines may be slightly off; I'm attempting to match the "Mr. Yang" story line with some of the events from my story "Ask For Another Day". I'm also taking some liberties when it comes to Henry's time on the SBPD, the year he may have possibly retired, and whether or not Henry and Vick may have ever worked together on the SBPD, as well as her time and experience as a police officer, so I ask you to suspend your disbelief when it comes to these. (I did ask all the experts, but they all say that these issues may have never been addressed on the show— as yet.)

 

As always, reviews and feedback are welcome and greatly appreciated. And please, if you feel the need to criticize, please be constructive, not nasty or deliberately cutting, about it. I understand that not everyone will like my style or take on characters/ situations, but I stand by my work, which I put much time and effort into. Thank you. Happy reading!

7. Chapter 6: I Am Just Over Your Shoulder by silverluna [Reviews - 7] starstarstarstarstar (6174 words)

Disclaimer: All publicly recognizable characters, settings, etc. are the property of their respective owners. The original characters and plot are the property of the author. The author is in no way associated with the owners, creators, or producers of any media franchise. No copyright infringement is intended.

 

Author's Note:I know, I know, looooooong time from last update till this one.

Reviews, feedback, thoughts, opinions and constructive criticism are welcome and appreciated.

 

References will be made to my story "Ask For Another Day ", as it was suggested that this one be partly "sequel-ish" to that one, but it is NOT REQUIRED to read that one first. The references made will be vague or will be explained in context to what is currently going on. The main reason for these references is because of the use of an OC, Adam Marks, from "Ask For Another Day", and I make the references because I want to show that he has an established history with the Psych characters, which will be important for the direction of this story.

Though this story is an "alternate" version from the Yin/Yang trilogy, I hesitate to label it with the "alternate universe" genre.

Not sure exactly when/if it was mentioned for Henry retiring from the SBPD, so I guessed.

 

Again, there are references in this chapter to my previous story, "Ask For Another Day", but reading that story is not required to understand the references made.

 

I promise I'm not abandoning this story, but I'm taking it slowly because I want it to turn out well. :) Also, real life loves to get in my way. I will work towards less time between updates though. XD
