Story Notes:
For some reason, the Shawn and Henry relationship seems to be fun to write about. This will be an alternate universe story. I thought it might be fun to examine how Shawn would be different if he was a police detective. Please let me know what you think.

1. Chapter 1: An Argument by GBFreak1 [Reviews - 13] starstarstarstarhalf star (534 words)

Not much too say.  I love watching Shawn and Henry interact.  This is the set-up.  Hope to have more soon.  Thanks for reading.

2. Chapter 2: The Wish Comes True by GBFreak1 [Reviews - 10] starstarstarstar (623 words)
I really struggled with this chapter.  I know where I want the story to go, but I'm having trouble with how.  If this is a little slow and short, I apologize.  I'd do better next chapter.  As always, thanks for reading!

3. Chapter 3: Weird, Wild, Not so Good Stuff by GBFreak1 [Reviews - 9] starstarstarstarstar (1088 words)
I have to be honest.  I am struggling with this story.  I know where I want it to go, but not how to get there and not how to make Henry seem like a complete sap.  I believe that Henry cares about Shawn, but he is extremely disappointed in him.  I also believe that to some extent he would not want Shawn to be miserable or have Shawn’s personality be completely different.  And I could be completely off base, but that’s why this is AU and a work of complete fiction.  So if this is terrible, I apologize, but the idea kept coming to me and I felt the need for the challenge.  Thanks for reading.

4. Chapter 4: Stop This Ride I Wanna Get Off by GBFreak1 [Reviews - 10] starstarstarstarstar (1533 words)
Hi again.  I wanted to explain a little bit about my reasoning for the chapter 3.  I know that I made Shawn mean and miserable, but I did it for a reason.  I think that a real 9-5 job with responsibility and having to answer to authority would make Shawn nuts.  He would absolutely hate it.  I think that’s why he loves Psych so much.  He gets to be a detective, but plays by his own rules.  Plus, I wanted Henry to see that his Shawn is happy and he should be grateful with what he has.  Also, remember this is Henry’s fantasy/dream, not reality, so it may be skewed. I probably exaggerated my point a little too much and I apologize for that.  I’m still learning the ropes of writing fiction.  I’m so accustomed to writing business and science reports. I hope you still enjoyed the ride and I appreciate any input you give me.  So here it is the end.   Cue dramatic music. Dum, dum, dum.
