This came to me in the middle of the night and I knew I had to write it. Even though I'm in the middle of writing several others. (I know, I know. I'm bad.) I'm keeping this rated E because there's no graphic violence in the foreseeable future, but there is a character death, so be warned.
The cool banner is courtesy of Dragonnan, who also told me how to post it in the story notes! She is fabulous and so is her creation! :-)
***UPDATE: I am very proud to say that this story was voted first place in two categories for the 7th Annual Psychfic Awards. I consider this story to be the best thing I have ever written, so I can't even begin to express how much it means to me to know that this story has impacted other people as well. Thank you so much for everything.

On May 5, 2009, Head Detective Carlton Lassiter held SBPD consultant Shawn Spencer at gunpoint for four hours, twenty-six minutes, and thirty-eight seconds in the living room of Lassiter's home in Santa Barbara, California. During the investigation of the events, it was undisclosed to the media how or why Spencer came to be in Lassiter's home that day. It was only after two weeks had passed that the police disclosed a report discussing what had occurred, but the report lacked many crucial details in an effort to protect the privacy of the parties involved. Now, five years and ten days later, the Santa Barbara Street will be the first newspaper to reveal to the public the true and detailed story of what happened to Shawn Spencer and Carlton Lassiter in 2009. Using the testimonies of the remaining parties involved, the reports of officers who arrived on scene, and the diaries of current SBPD Head Detective Juliet O'Hara, the Street reporters have pieced together the sequence of events.
