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 10th Doctor fan, a clarinetist, a bass guitarist, a pro wrestling nut, 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!

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!

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.

H2G2! Huzzah! I almost did a happy dance upon the introduction of poor Marvin. I love poor Marvin. Many thanks for writing this! Your story made my day. :-)


Lassiter finally gives Juliet another shot as Lead Detective on a case, one she specifically requests because it's personally important to her.  She brings in Shawn and Gus as consultants to help speed things along, but quickly learns it's not as easy to fill Lassiter's size 12 shoes as everyone thinks.  Juliet makes a critical mistake that winds up endangering everyone—one that could have deadly consequences for Shawn.  

Fortunately for the pseudo-psychic, someone is there to watch his back.  Someone who practically lives on the firing range preparing for a day such as this.  Someone who's more than willing to kick some ass to serve and protect.  Because NO ONE damages "property of the SBPD" on his watch...


My version of how Lassie lost his red Crown Vic.  Warning for "Character Death", even if it is just a car.

That was beautiful. I nearly cried when Lassiter nearly cried. Madame...I am in awe. Great writing, great interactions, and a great death scene. I salute you.

Summary: Lassiter caught Shawn kissing his partner in the interrogation room, and now he's deciding what he should do. Unfortunately for the SBPD's newest couple, the Head Detective has a very long memory...and the ability to carry a grudge.

MY version of what happened after Lassiter catches them kissing at the end of "Yin 3 in 2D."

This is a Lassiter and Juliet-centered "Shules" story. Because that's the only way I'll ever write it.

Hello! This story is perfectly glorious! I am so impressed by how well you capture Lassiter's voice. This is the first story I've read where I've been able to really "hear" Lassiter, and that includes my own. Namaste, master! Also, the whole story is beautiful. Beautifully written, beautiful scenes, and beautiful feeling behind it. Thanks so much for writing! :-)

Summary: Carlton had been visiting Marlowe in prison every Wednesday for two months, when she shows uncertainty that their relationship can reach beyond the glass that separates them.

Hello! I'm relatively new to Psychfic and I just found this story. Also, I actually watched This Episode Sucks for the first time yesterday! So I am very excited to find your stories because I think I have jumped on the Carlowe bandwagon! :-) This story is really spectactular and it made me feel very squishy inside. So bravo! Inspirational! Can't wait to read your other stories! :-)


Lassiter holds his new granddaughter for the first time...and it's too perfect.

Okay, this story just about killed me. But it's beautiful. Maybe a little bit too beautiful! It's clever, mysterious, and, of course, depressing. But that's what makes it such good writing. "All romance ends in despair. Or death."

Summary: Shawn shows up at a crime scene and something isn't right. Where's Lassie and why does everyone insist that they've never even heard of him? Is Gus playing the worst prank in history, or is there something in Lassiter's past that has gone seriously wrong?

I love the Fourth Doctor reference, as well as the Scott Bakula references. The graveyard scene was very poignant and very well-done. I find it very interesting that you're using Lassiter from his rookie days. Very creative!


Mutilated bodies are turning up in remote wooded areas in Santa Barbara. After a surprising meeting on the beach, questions lead to more than just finding the killer. It leads to revealing secrets that run deep and are far too painful to remember. 

“Why!? This wasn’t supposed to happen. I was supposed to protect you, not- ...But the taste… And you tried to stop me. I… lost control. I’m so sorry. Please forgive me, Va-  … Because I can’t forgive myself.”

“It’s okay. It’s not you- …... I wasn’t…... I shouldn’t have…”

Aha! Interesting. So Lassiter's grandfather wrote a note... The straitjacket makes a reappearance... And the note has gaps. With every chapter, I know less than before! Gaaaah! You really do need to write a mystery novel. I'm serious. Because I am dying of the great plague that is Suspense. Masterful and intriguing work. As always. And frustrating. As always. ;-)
But I'm so excited to find out what comes next!!!

Author's Response: Wow. You are keeping track. (Lassiter's grandfather) I love it! Technically the straitjacket didn't appear; it was just mentioned. Hopefully the next chapter (which isn't the finished one I told you about) will shed some light on some major questions. A medicated Warden = a loose mouth. :D

Okay, I went on a reading binge last night and I finally finished it! Yay! :-) The squirrel chapter made me laugh. You do a very good job of creating suspense. I am now currently drowning in it because I wanna know what happens to poor Lassiter!!! I do not like Leo and the other people at all. I am glad that Bear is dead, assuming that he really is dead and isn't going to come back.

Okay, so blue eyes equal regular Lassiter, green eyes equal the not-Lassiter, and gold eyes are...Massie? It sounds like Massie. I will put this in Psychology terms to make sense of it. Lassiter is the superego, green-eyed Lassiter is the ego, and Massie is the id. Yes, that sounds right. But then there's Warden, who is still a mystery...

It must be terribly cramped in Lassiter's head, with all those people. But Lassiter's head appears to be bigger on the inside. Is he a TARDIS? ;-D

So in short, mind-blowing work! Can't wait to see more. :-)

Author's Response:

:D You read! omg! Awesomeness! Thanks for reading and you understand most of everything (mentally) that's going on with Lassie in this story. The mentioning of the egos and id was spot on. I had to look it up, since I took sociology instead of psychology (which I SO wanted to take. I love messing with people's heads) I'm extremely shock that psyche stuff follows so well. My inspiration for this whole splitting persona thing came from Silent Hill 4 and the serial killer character Walter Sullivan. (who is a whole different kind of crazy) But considering I was working on a fanfic for that, it shouldn't be surprising it translated into this story.

I'm happy you got the color indicators right. It keeps me from getting mixed up and I'm hoping it keeps other people from getting mixed up too. Just two things: a little freebie. Green eyes is Warden (the dark-haired teenager). Although she is more than what she appears to be and holds secrets about Lassie's past that will be revealed. Some of which will be revealed in the next chap I'm currently working on. Yellow is Massie (though a very hellbent, destructive Massie who very much likes killing and torturing. *sighs* Poor squirrels. So Rebecca's declawing project would definitely not work on this version of Massie. She would end up dead in the woods somewhere partially eaten)

And Bear isn't coming back. I made sure of that. But Riley... um she's still up for a battle, if she recovers in time. I haven't decided really on her fate yet. Leo is going down... in a spectacular way. *snickers* I have future chaps typed up. It's just trying to figure out how to get Lassie out of that hospital bed and into some action and also who is the best candidate to go with him into that action. Tricky stuff and very annoying when I've set myself up to seeing multiple paths this could take. They all end up at the same place, but just different info is given to the reader depending on which path is taken.

Maybe I should just 'eenie meenie miney moe' one and go with it. I have written so much extra stuff... -_-
