Now that "A Very Risky Proposition" (aka "Risk") is done, I am devoting 100% of my time to working on my "baby" (or, the "dark fic"), as I call it. Started at the same time as "Risk", it has been woefully neglected for almost two years. It will be my first (and perhaps only) attempt at dark themes and it will be Shules (what else?)

As intense as this has been to write so far, it may also be the last story I write for Psych. It is set post-Season 6 and will ignore most of what happens for the rest of the series, although many things may end up slightly parallel. That's about all I can say for now. There is a great deal already written, but after doing a major overhaul of the plot, I now have a great deal more to tackle!

I have had so many people from this community help me along the way with this as yet unfinished work---please know, it WILL be finished. I will not post any of it until it IS in fact complete. So thank you from the bottom of my heart to all of you: (Kirei, Noir Cat, darth_sparrow, jenni_fromtexas, and Redwolffclaw)!!!!!

While I'm on the subject, I want to acknowledge two special people, one who provided the original inspiration for "Risk" - Captain Riterra Smith (she hangs out at the USA Psych forum and has a fic on FF called "The Wizard of Terminal City") and my current Beta/Muse, The Amazing Silverluna (she really is amazing folks - her stuff is on Psychfic and FF, check it out!) Love you guys!

Thanks to everyone for reading the stories I've posted so far and for leaving so many wonderful reviews. Your feedback is so very encouraging! Feel free to send me a PM if you have any questions or suggestions!

December 2014 Update: YIKES! It's been a whole year since I updated this! Anyone else experiencing frustration over how much RL intrudes on our fic-writing time???? Sheesh! But yes, I am *STILL* here, still plugging away on "the dark fic". I am like a dog with a bone that refuses to be picked clean. It may take me another year, but I *WILL* finish this thing (if I can stop with my bad habit of constant rewrites). All I can say at this point is that I am working on this and this alone. Any other notions I have/had about doing a sequel for "Risk", well, they'll have to wait.

Continuous and eternal thanks to Redwolffclaw and Silverluna for their encouragement and willingness to check my sanity whenever I need feedback (which is quite often!) Thanks too to everyone else who has helped along the way with this (including the folks mentioned above) for the contributions they've already made to this story! I hope that when it is finally finished, it will be an awesomely enjoyable read.

Excited about the upcoming 6th Annual Awards and the Virtual Season next year!!!

I was scouring every Psych-related web site I could find for Shules fic and just happened across a mention on Psych Fic Finders.  I know this particular story is one you wrote waaaaaaaaaaaay back before we had the last 2 seasons, but I'm just completely in love with how well you do their romance.  I'm wondering though, if you had compiled some sort of "chronology" as some of your stories seem to be part of a series (this one as a pre-Shules becoming Shules, then the engagement that was mentioned at the end, etc.)  If you have such a list, would you please tell me where to find it?  I'll go check your profile to see if you list a personal/fic web site.

Please write more of this - even if it's not part of the series you started, the canon now is almost as amazing as the beautiful fanon in your Shules world.  Thank you!!!

Summary:

"Life is not made up of a single moment, it's made up of a gazillion moments. What defines us is the choice we make in the next moment, and the one after that. These moments, Shawn, they're happening, they're all around us all the time.

You're having one right now."

~Henry Spencer

 Based on the 100 themes challenge (with a few of my own thrown in, possibly).  Enjoy.

 

(the title for this story is based on a quote by Dan Millman)

Yayz! You drabbled too!  I don't know if anyone's written something like this, but you should TOTALLY turn this into a Shawn (in a Sherlock role) and Gus (as Watson, of course) longer fic!  Please!?!?!?! 

This is a perfect "lil Shawn - Dad Henry" moment!



Author's Response: Haha, you inspired me.  :)  I haven't drabbled in a while--it felt nice.  And I would love to see someone do a Sherlock-ish Psych fic.  Maybe I'll get the writing itch and give it a try someday.  Thanks!

So Close by windscryer Rated: eT starstarstarstarstar [Reviews - 8]

It's been three years—to the day—since Juliet bared her heart to Shawn.

Three years since he listened to her confession . . . and ever so gently broke her heart.

I don't know how many times I've read this (I have it saved to my list of faves) but I am close to tears every time.  It is SO beautiful and romantic and just how I would see Shawn being.  I think alot must come from what we know of the actor and his statements about wanting to be romantic...  It's just perfect.  Don't know what you would do for an encore on this, but it would be nice to see what happens next.  I think this was much less "sugary" and waaaaaaaaaaaay more loving, pure and simple, than perhaps you give yourself credit for.  Bravissimo!

I re-read this again, remembering the first time I read it, and also how this fit so well as part of the episode we didn't see.  It made me appreciate your writing all over again (not that I ever stopped once I found your stuff!)  This one is a classic and it's permanently in my list of all time faves.

Summary:

Lassiter often found himself being driven crazy by Spencer. But he never, ever meant for this to happen. And now Shawn is in the hospital, barely hanging on, and he's the one who put him there.

What they said - please do say you will be continuing and finishing this - poor Shawn is hanging by a thread and we're all there with him - gah!!!!!



Author's Response: Eep, how did I miss responding to this review earlier?! Mia culpa!

Goodness, yes, absolutely will be continuing this! I'm finishing up my Halloween fic, then this. I need to tweak the next chapter just a bit more and it should be ready for posting.

All I can say is... it's a darn good thing she cuffed him with his hands in front...  I think Shawn might have had a bit of a problem.  <cough cough>  Absolutely delightful!  Please write MORE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  (more of this story and more Shules, period, please?)

Summary:

She wanted to take control of her life. He had something to prove. Unaccounted for weekends, reality, and a big secret might give them both what they're looking for...and a little bit more.

I'm with them (points to all the previous reviewers) - PLEASE update this soon!  I check constantly to see if you've posted a new chapter.  This is very nicely done and very very cute and romantic.



Author's Response: I finally managed to update...sorry it took me so long!

Summary:

"I want you to imagine a bullet coming from that gun, penetrating your skin, and lodging in your brain.  You know how easy that would be for me?" 

But Shawn doesn't have to imagine it... because he's about to experience it.

I have followed you on this journey since I first came across this forum and your writing.  I continue to be in awe of your mastery of the written word - how you describe such nuances, perceptions - even from one who is for all intents & purposes, blind - it's stunning.  The progression from the basis in canon to where you departed was flawless and completely believable.  I am so happy you were finally able to bring this to a ending - a happy one at that!  Thank you so much!



Author's Response: I swear, all the blood rushing to my face after reading this makes me look like a cherry lollipop! I feel like writing this story has really had an impact on how I see things - the pun so NOT intended.  The believability thrills me the most! I always worry about going to extreme (and boy have I EVER done that lol!) but I wanted this story to be realistic as much as possible. Thank you so much for you wonderful comments!

Roped into handing out candy at his father's, Halloween takes a darker turn for Shawn when some trick-or-treaters show up to get more than just candy.

Ok, I was almost ok - just a bit heart pounding-y after reading this (I was waiting until it was semi-done because this was one where I don't think I could have handled the chapter cliffies!) - UNTIL... I went and clicked on that link for the photo manip...  OMG Holy Crap!  I think I'm going to have nightmares now!  THIS is why I don't watch slasher movies.  Of course, the ridiculous thing I'm thinking as Henry is going thru the house (and then righteously hacking up that damned table)?  Who does he call to help clean all that up?  Do police departments have crime scene cleaning crews?  And of course, here's hoping poor Shawn at least gets a date with Jules for all his suffering!

Author's Response: Haha!! I LOVE that you were wondering about the cleaning!! I was trying to get that across. It might be "over" but things are literally still a mess. Unfortunately, I think Henry's on his own.. although he'll probably end up with some help. ;) Yes, Drag's art was FABULOUSLY scary! It's dead on for how I described him, but it's so much scarier actually SEEING it! And this entire story is completely ironic because scary movies TERRIFY me! Completely! I usually have to leave the room because just the sounds terrify me. I read the wiki on "Halloween" for this story, and then I watched a few of the scenes. On youtube (it's hard to find anything very scary when it's tiny on youtube) with the mute on.
