I used to go by "Lieutenant," but then the person who gave me that name promoted me to "Commander." Only took me seven years. ;-)
I'm a perennial latecomer to everything, so it's a good thing I'm into time travel.
I'm a definite Lassie addict; I actually became a fan of the show when I chanced to see Timothy Omundson during the opening credits. Instead of going to bed, I stayed up late to watch the episode. One of the best hours I've ever spent!
In my non-Psych life, I am a raving Trekkie, a MacGyver fan (actually a Murdoc fan, to be honest), a 10th Doctor fan, a clarinetist, a bass guitarist, a pro wrestling mark, a strong Christian, and a reader of all books. I enjoy history, science fiction, fantasy, mysteries, and paranormal fiction (and yes, that includes Twilight). I'm also quite fond of theatre, decades past, and music of all sorts. But especially U2 and Fozzy!
I work for the Starfleet Office of Temporal Investigations. My specialty is interdimensional travel. That's about everything I can tell you---the rest is classified. ;-)
My stories will contain a lot of Lassiter. You have been warned!If you see anything in my stories that you don't like or anything you think I need to work on, don't be afraid to let me know. I thrive on constructive criticism as much as I thrive on encouragement.
Soli Deo Gloria.
So proud & honored to be a Psychfic Awards nominee and winner. I couldn't be happier to be a part of this site's amazing community of encouraging, supportive, and talented writers. Thanks!Icons by Dragonnan

I find this very interesting! I've never read a poem with this structure before. I liked the premise and I liked the way you described each "abduction." Good work, and very creative! :-)

Hi. You don't know me, and I feel like a bit of a creeper leaving a review after so many years. Although, in my defense, I wasn't a Psych fan when this story was posted (but maybe that just makes it more weird...).
But I just wanted you to know that I really, really, really like your story. So thank you.

This is amazing, Deej! I love the way you have Lassiter's thoughts & side comments in parentheses all through the story. That's a really effective way to get Lassie's commentary into the story, and it's really creative. I also love the way you always capture Lassie so perfectly. Favorite line: "Lassiter called it disobeying an order to stay put." :-D
Author's Response: Thank you! :D

I love you just for writing this story in second-person. You can add that to the list of reasons why we're friends. Right now. :-D
Also, I love the amiguity of it. It could be literally any of the characters there with Lassie, or it could be you, or it could be me, or it could even be a Lassie clone for all we know! And that just makes it so awesome!!
Also, the ending was a ball of yes in a can. And I love it. Thank you, Deej!
Author's Response: Eehehehehe! *pulls out small black notebook* *scribbles notes* :D I'm so happy you liked it so much! Thanks for taking the time to let me know. (Also, "Lassie clone" *ded*)
Date: July 10, 2017 Title: Chapter 11: A Special Anniversary
THIS. Just YES. This is exactly what I look for in short fics like this. Everything about it is perfect, especially the last two lines. And also, I love how Shawn added "the real oven," and I like how you described a little of what happened to Gus without going into too much detail.
Also, I love you.
Author's Response: Love you too!!!! Thank you for the review! I'm glad to hear that you enjoyed reading it; I am actually very proud of it. Haha Although it does make me all sad and wibbly with feels too. ;)
Date: April 24, 2018 Title: Chapter 12: The Black and the Blue
I love you, Deej. This is why we're friends. Your Lassie is perfect.
Author's Response: Oh, is this why we're friends? I was wondering about that. XD Thank you so much though!! Lassie is my favorite for a reason. :) I'm super duper thrilled to hear I managed to get him down so well in so few words. Thank you for taking the time to review!!

Argh!! Deej! I love you!
Seriously, this is great. I love the repetition and parallelism here, but the twist you added onto every line was very original. You definitely have the most creative spin on the prompt that I've seen so far. I also love the way that you laid out an entire plot in just six lines. You're awesome!
Author's Response: Eeep thank you!!! I did try very hard, so I'm glad it paid off! I wanted to go with a unique take on the phrase, and so I'm glad it came across well. And I liked the idea of trying to convey an entire plotline in 100 words; it's a super fun exercise. Thank you again!! Reviews make me happy. :D
Date: October 28, 2018 Title: Chapter 23: Building Blocks
Ba ha ha!!! I love this one, Deej. Not only did you manage to work in the Mexican standoff, but you also made the bickering so funny with a twist of suspenseful, since it's up to Lassie to make it there to save them---again. XD I love it!
Author's Response: Hehehe Thank you!! I'm very glad you liked it. :D

Daaaaang, Drag! Mmkay, one of my favorite things about you is that you can take one of the most innocent prompts ever put on this Earth and turn it into something nice and whumpy. :-D
Second of all, I love the parallel structure thing you've got going on there, starting with the Swish and going through the line and ending up on Swish again. I like patterns, so that stuck to me. Also, very poetic wordplay here in some places---"as bone shackled against bone, ripping a screech and breath-gulping groan." Duuuude, the RHYTHM there though!!
Describing Buzz as "mastiff adorable" is 100% perfect. Gah!! Too cute.
And I really like the description of Juliet's hair being like a '90s shampoo commercial.
And the ending was great, too! Shawn always manages to be lighthearted about everything. And yeah, Gus is totally going to be upset. :-D
Awesomesauce, Drag! Awesomesauce!
Author's Response: *glows with beaming sunbeams!!!* I have the most massive grin right nowz!!!!!! It thrills me like nothing else to have passages highlighted that struck a chord! Thank you so much with this amazing review!
