Amidst a disagreement between Lassiter and Juliet over her new relationship status, Lassiter finds himself begrudgingly partnered with Shawn at Vick's request for an inquiry into a case in Ventura. Events following might force Lassiter to discover that having Shawn around is sometimes good for his health—and that Shawn is possibly not such a bad match for O'Hara.
There will be whump.

Secret Santa request: "I'm in the mood for a fic featuring Lassie and Shawn as main characters. Whump's good or it can by a fun, light fic. I'd enjoy reading a story where you can tell that Lassie ends up respecting Shawn a little more in the end even though Shawn annoys him some . . . well all of the time. Extra bonus pineapples if you can include Gus in some way."
Author's Note: This has been edited and added to slightly since it was posted as a 2011 SSFE, and broken into two chapters since PF will not let me upload it as one story. Maybe it's meant to be that way. Reviews, feedback and constructive criticism are welcome and highly appreciated. :) Enjoy!
Special thanks to ZedPM for her awesome brainstorming help and support. :)
