Bio:

Aw, look at this poor little profile, it hasn't been updated in years. Well, it's 2018 and time to change that...


My name is Miranda, I'm 21, and I live in Texas. You might see me referred to as Mira, insert, or around the web as one of my other usernames: Zena-Xina or omgubler


So, I've been watching Psych since I was in 8th grade (2011) and have not stopped loving it since then. While I'm in multiple other fandoms (Criminal Minds, Supernatural, Doctor Who, Sherlock, Leverage, The Listener, Monk, etc...) I think the Psych fanfics are my favorite. It's hard to explain, why, exactly, but there's just a whole 'nother level of community within the Psych fandom that you don't see in a lot of other ones. SO many amazing writers as well.


Going through my stories you will find a major difference in quality. Mostly because I wrote a lot of them in late middle school and high school. I'm in college right now, so I'd like to think I have improved, somewhat.


Also, I would just like to place a permanent thank you right here to my writing buddy Koohii Kappu for being the best buddy one could ask for.


Secondly, thank you to anyone who has ever nominated or voted for me in the Psychfic Awards and anyone has ever submitted a review. It means a LOT to me.

Oh-my-gosh I totally don't blame Gus fo smashing the phone lol.

This was pretty interesting, I don't think I've read something quite like it before.

I was so upset when Shawn and Gus we're fighting and Gus ratted Shawn out XD Good thing it was an alternate reality.

But... it kinda leaves a question that if Shawn were to do some irresponsible things again, could Gus snap as easily and rat him out? Would Gus need to question himself about all that? Or was it a heat of the moment thing in the A.U. and he now knows how much he really does care for Shawn and knows he wouldn't really do that...

But yeah this was really good, I'm surprised you don't have more reviews.

Summary: Missing Scenes for The Spellingg Bee. Shawn just wasn’t having a good day and it all started with his father.

Such a great episode tag!!! I love Franklin!

I love reading this mostly cause it was written not long after the episode came out so the characters are based on what you actually knew about them/felt about them at the time, before they changed and evolved through the series. Season 1 Shawn is a lot different and it's cool to see a fic written from that first perspective of him.

Summary:

"Prison," Shawn said darkly.

AWWW so cute! And that first chapter? So funny!

Summary: Past Featured StoryShawn messes up. And worse, he's not the one paying the consequences for it. Nor is Lassiter, but he wouldn't keep his fat head out of this story either. Apparently they both suffer from COAS (Center of Attention Syndrome).

Oh my gosh I love this more than you can know yasssss. I love when Shawn literally beats himself up because he missed something or something happened and he blames himself. And the moment with Lassie is just too perfect... Ahhh. Yessss.

Summary: Past Featured StoryWhen an officer is murdered late one night while on duty, Karen forbids Shawn from getting involved, afraid he won't take the case as seriously as he should.

But since when has a little thing like being banned from a case stopped Shawn Spencer?

AHHHHSDFGHJKL

I'll have you know that I clicked on this just to start it before I went to bed and was so sucked in I had to read the whole thing and now it's 4am XD

Oh man, I absolutely love this and am astonished I've never read it before.

The work obsessed, sleep deprived, caffeine hyped Shawn is my favorite!!! Pair that with all of the other angst and no one listening to him and combine it with whump and DING DING DING we have a winner favorite!!

Seriously this is so awesome and on point it's fantastic!!! I love it!!!

Summary: Past Featured Story

It was supposed to be a simple case. A guy had gone missing and his sister wanted to find him. Shawn would have it solved by the next day and get back to relaxing and goofing off. But an unexpected twist and a web of lies and secrets foil the psychic’s plans. The end of this case will bring a change to this psychic’s life he never expected.

Aw, this was so cute. And, let me just say that I have NEVER read a fic before that had me feel like I was watching a legit episode before... The pacing, the characters, the plot... all too perfect. I literally don't know how you do it. I know you wrote this a really long time ago but it still stands up really well all these years later. Again... just AWESOME!

Summary: Past Featured StoryThe father of a former partner of Henry’s is looking for revenge on all the officers who were at the scene the day his son was killed.  Can Henry prevent him from making Shawn his next victim?

AWWWW, this is great! I actually refound it because it's the very first thing listed in my Favorites List! Luckily it's been long enough now (seven years?) that I can go back and read all of these awesome stories again like I never had in the first place. Plus, I was in middle school back then so I feel like I pick up better on certain jokes and whatnot in some fics. I love the Henry/Shawn relationship in this, you really nailed them being in a desperate situation and I love how Shawn is weirded out over his dad caring for him XD

Summary: Shawn has a spill while mountain biking and is injured.  Unfortunately, the injury is worst than he thinks and he winds up disorientated and on the floor of his office.  Gus and Juliet have to find Shawn quickly in order to get him the help he needs.
