Bio:

 

I'm a very music based person, I always have music playing when I'm working, writing, sketching, cleaning, studying... Okay, you get the idea. I always have music. And a lot of story ideas are inspired by a song, either it's lyrics, or melody, or theme. The titles for my stories correspond to the inspiring song, so please go to youtube and listen to the song and maybe google the lyrics. It may enhance the story, or, well... not. But I'm betting it will help. I usually listen the inspiration song on repeat or as part of a playlist while writing. If there are other songs that become inspiration songs during the writing, or for a specific chapter, I'll try to include the titles to those. I also sketch and draw, actually more than I write. If I draw something that goes with a story, I will try to post the link for that as well.

 

Since the first part of my bio is just a blatant copy/paste from FFN, I need to add this in... I'm a firm believer in checking to see if your story fits any challenges that have already been issued, regardless of whether or not you knew that ahead of time. Many challenges go unanswered despite there actually being stories that fit for a response, it drives me nuts because I'm always using challenges to find similar stories to the ones I like. So that's why a lot of my stories will have a bunch of challenges tagged onto them, mmkay? :D

This is Edward (no, not after the guy from Twilight >_<). He's my constant source of amusement and inspiration <3 (and just for a size reference, that platform on his cat tree is 2ft by 2ft... so you can see just how tall the fluffball is... like a pudgy, feline Buzz XD)

 

I now have a twitter account with real time (ish) updates on how writing is going on my stories! Go check it out! <3

Summary:

"Shawn Spencer, you've been targeted for termination." 

Shawn has always had a knack for solving the mystery behind what he sees, which is why life is everything he expected it would be... until he finds out that nothing is what it seems and he is far more important to the world than he realized.  Loosely inspired by the song "The Ultimate Showdown of Ultimate Destiny" by Lemon Demon. Be afraid.  (Spoilers up to "Bounty Hunters!")

This is amazing! I actually think it's better than the writing for some of the regular Psych episodes, so kudos! :D The mystery was really good too, with the murder rap and then the curious case of the old lady downstairs. And the addition of Nick was hilarious. But I have to say one of the best parts, if not the best, was how Shawn spent his time: murder wall, ceiling furniture, etc. So spot on! Fabulous job!

O..M..G... This is absolutely, utterly, completely, mindblowingly AMAZING! Gah, there are just no words good enough to describe how awesome this is!

Also, this is possibly the greatest moment from the entire story:
“Well, first of all there was the car accident,” Lassiter said plainly, “in which you managed to snap your leg in two. And then, of course, there was you deciding to go for a run on said broken leg, and, oh yeah,” Carlton said drawing his finger to his chin, and giving Jules the what-the-hell-were-you-thinking look, “you then decided to try and use said broken leg as a weapon against the paramedics because they wouldn’t let you see that imbecile Spencer.” HILARIOUS :D

Summary:

(Working title)

Shawn's attempt to help someone in need lands him in more hot water than he expected. Will his friends find him in time?

I just have to say I was surprised by the mention of Provigil... how the hell did Collins get his hands on that? And using it to keep Shawn up... ouch. Very creative on your part, good job! :)
