Best Overall Writer:

For all those who happen to jump onto my author page (and I know it's less and less likely as time goes on): I cannot shake the fact that I have an unfinished - barely started, even - story on here.  My interests shifted a bit, but I haven't forgotten and I do plan on keeping my promise.

In other news, I am working on original fiction at this point.  I'm only a couple of chapters into the first draft of a young adult novel, but it's eating pretty well into my extra time.  What does this mean?  In the long term: That someday, hopefully, I can announce to everyone that they should go check out the book in the stores.  But in the short term: it's still probably going to be awhile until I get back to Forget Me Not Blue.

As a parting shot, I have to thank every person that has ever left me a review (including those hard reviews I may not like - I read through some of my old author notes and I realized that I really do sound like an irritating swot).  I ride both the highs and lows of wanting to write for a living, and I've had many a long hour at the computer, staring at the screen and thinking how awful I am.  When I drive myself too far down, I'll pop onto the site, read some of the reviews, and remember why I love doing this.

Thank you!

A very good argument for canon.  It's always responsibility for Henry.  Good stuff :)

I have to admit--normally I am not a big fan of OFCs, especially since they tend to turn into super powerpuff-esque (but older) type girls, who are perfect.  And a big warning claxon for me is when the girl turns into Shawn's love.

Another confession: Absolutely loved this.

Kellie is one of the only OFCs that I've read that has struck me as a real person, with normal reactions, real fears, real looks even, and how you pulled that off I'm not sure :).  She didn't turn into super-crime-solving-better-than-Shawn-but-sexier girl, she remained a real person through and through.  The romance itself (a genre I tend to be suspicious of) was beautiful, not cloying, and I found myself enjoying it beyond what I'd expected.

Thanks for a really fun read :).



Author's Response: Thank YOU so much for the glowing review!! I really, really appreciate it!

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 centipede!  You totally rock!

 

 

Am I the only one amused by the fact that we can review our own stories?



Author's Response:

I know I do.  Thank you very much.

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?

Ha!  Your chapter title is just as horrible this time as it was for last chapter!

Whoo! *throws up the horns* I can't wait until you start uploading the good stuff.  Though stop worrying so much.  These chapters rock already, whether or not you think they do.  I know my opinion doesn't matter, but what can ya' do?

Also, just saw the author's notes for the beginning of this story.  Thanks so much for the mention!  I didn't do half as much work on this story as you would have people believe.  The writing is yours hon, and it's brilliant.



Author's Response:

Bwahahahaha! Nothing like a cheesy chapter title to look forward to. :D

XDDDDD Me neither! Next chapter will go up tomorrow I think. :D Well, I appreciate your non-opinion nonetheless. XDDDD

Psh. You deserve it. :)

I've said it once, I'll say it again: You nailed that scene, especially the one with Lassiter and Juliet.  And the pigs!  I'm going to laugh everytime I see one of those trucks go by.  Or think of Wilbur.  Who really isn't as cool as Charlotte.  Wilbur was "some pig."  Charlotte frickin' wrote it.

Author's Response: I appreciate that SO MUCH. :D lol I always have a hard time taking that line seriously. It always sounds very sarcastic in my head. XDDDDD

The Sight by JessicaRae Rated: T starstarstarstarstar [Reviews - 82]
Summary:

“That’s just it, Shawn. Everything you need is always right in front of you. You just have to pay attention.”

Shawn's deception of being a psychic is about to get more complicated and he doesn't think he's going to be able to handle the repercussions.

Hmph.  Boring indeed.  You lie!

 Seriously, I'm very excited by what potential this story has.  The next part should be awesome if it's even half as well written as this chapter.  Update soon!

Reviewer: centipede Signed

“My God,” breathed Gus, “My best friend’s been blown up.”

This should not have made me laugh as hard as it did.  I feel terribly insensitive.  And amused.

Shawn was sprawled out on his stomach, several large pieces of smoldering wreckage covering his head and back, blocking the rest of his friend and Juliet from view.

EEE!  Fangirl-delighted squeals.  Loved this sentence, for obvious reasons.

I skipped roughly a billion lines too awesome for me to process, and I'll skip to one that made me snigger quite loudly.

“This! This is what brings me by, Shawn.”

Shawn and Gus squinted at the TV. Shawn looked at his father, confused, “The Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers?”

I swear I could not stop laughing.  Humor gold, and in the perfect spot, right when the angst and yelling was heating up.  Perfect place for it.

This was pure awesome.  No.  Not just pure awesome.  It was pure AWESOME, and heck yes you know the capital letters make all the difference.  I can't wait for the next chapter.

Obviously, I'm going to have to anyways *grumblegrumblesnort*

:D

Take Two by Ice_Whisper Rated: T starstarstarstarhalf star [Reviews - 24]
Summary: The confrontation at Buzz McNab's apartment really didn't go as Shawn had planned. Oops. Yeah, 911? It's Shawn again.

Notes: Alternate ending to the episode "9 Lives". So obviously, some dialogue is taken straight from the show and-duh-I don't own it. And if you haven't seen the episode...don't read unless you want parts spoiled.
