To get the right word in the right place is a rare achievement. To condense the diffused light of a page of thought into the luminous flash of a single sentence, is worthy to rank as a prize composition just by itself. Anybody can have ideas--the difficulty is to express them without squandering a quire of paper on an idea that ought to be reduced to one glittering paragraph. ---Mark Twain.

My take on the 100 Themes Challenge - all focused on Shawn and Jules. Just my way of briefly thinking beyond the screen.

Current: "Food" - When Shawn shows up at Juliet's door with a small, furry problem, she has to help. (fluff)

I STILL don't know how to coherently tell you how much I love this chapter, so I've decided to give up on coherent all together.



That is all. 

Author's Response:

LOL, Sammy! That gets it across as well! THANK YOU!

Oh. My. God. Okay, as hard as this is going to be--I am going to forgo fainting and actually try to manage a real review.

First? INJURED JULES?! Really?! You might as well come out and said that you were trying to give me a heart attack! <3 Though I truly do not mind one bit. :] I love, love, love how she is so intent on taking care of herself, and I love even more that Shawn loves that about her as well. =D She is so strong on a daily basis, and that vunerable side of her is written amazingly well.

Shawn's humour is spot on here, right from the start --"While I’m at it, I might even trip you just for fun.” He's such a dorkwad, lol, but his heart is in the right place.

The fact that they're both so ridiciously stubborn is so true, and reading that part made me chuckle.=P Just goes to show what a great match they are.

"It had been the longest few moments of his life when he had seen her take that tumble, and he was fairly certain his heart had stopped when he’d found her lying so still." Your worried over Jules! Shawn is so, so *squish* worthy. Really have no idea what would he would do if anything ever happened to her. *Shudders at the thought*

And the whole tears thing? AAAH, once again illustrating how strong Jules always tries to be, she just can't help it.

The argument over who is gonna make the call, had me laughing out loud--because I have no doubt that he would indeed, try to tie her to the sofa to keep her still.=P TOO CUTE.

"Equally adept at ignoring someone..."  LOL, they really are the perfect pair.<33333

I love Jules going into her little rant, and Shawn making her hush, lol--and him taking care of her? Holy ****, (yes, you know it's intense when I start swearing), just the most fantastically cute thing e v e r.<33333

Martians? You're adorable, Mo. :] That is classic Shawn. Distracting her in his own little way, epic.<3 I am seriously floored at how well you know/write him. Do you offer courses in Shawn-speak? I'd totally sign up.=P Sleepy Jules going along with the convo is also precious.<3

This review is getting long, huh?

But, Dear LORD, HE CARRIES HER TO BED.<3 Mo, I need a "Sammy Warning" on these things!!!! The whole fantasy thing was killer, and I love even more that he jokes himself out of discussing it because of the state she's in.

THEN she asks him to stay, and it's the sweetest, cutest scene in the history of sweet, cute scenes.<3 The fact that her actually crying, obviously without wanting to, compells him to stay is just--gaaaah.<3 The protectiveness/wanting to take care of her is heart warmingggg.=D<3

Her draping her arms around him, him holding her? AH.<333 Again, SAMMY WARNINGGGGG.

" she was enfolded in a security blanket."

Omg, Mo...the imagery, the concept of her feeling safe in his arms, before she even has time to process that she is in fact, in his armsssss--I am a pile of goo.<3

Her spazzing out on him about why he's there, immediately pulling away--so Jules, and his random list of possible reasons, very him + purple elephant dream? Ha, once again the lightness in this is perfect and intersected amazingly.

"Even now, he wanted nothing more than to pull her back into his arms – they felt empty." MORGAN, I beg of you, stop trying to give me a heart attack. Just wow...that line is bitter-sweet and breathtaking.<33333 Shawn simply wanting to hold herrrrr, gaaah.<3

Jules being all flustered = win, and the last line is SO Shawn, it's incredible. I really am going to be on you about the courses. Shawn Speak For Dummies? Dorkwad 101?

You're seriously too talented.

*Faints* ...Had to get it out of my system.=P<3

Author's Response: Oh, Sammy, I swear that, when I first read this, I almost cried. You are amazing, just amazing. THANK YOU.

 Jash is right 100%. =] <3 


I am seriously happy that you wrote this, mainly because of how much I was discussing the, "what would Jules do" question that arose after this ep.<3333


I adore Shawn trying to get a foothold on the dating thing, his genuine confusion about the "rules" and when/if he has to check in with her is spot on & very cuteeeeee.


AAAND now onto Jules, lol. I LOVE you for the way you had her handle the entire situation. She knows Shawn, and knows when to push with certain things & when to back off. Shawn is someone that gets nervous when you corner him, and it only serves to make him retreat more.


The fact that (obviously despite *wanting* him to let her in) she had decided to simply wait until he was ready eases his worry & actually compels him to call his dad is PERFECT and exactly how I see their situation going down when the oppurtunity arises.

*Note to writers of the show, take a page from the UH-MAZINGness that is Mo. =D

You? Seriously NAILEDDD this. 



Author's Response: Well,  Shawn is clueless - it will take him forever to figure out dating! I'm glad you think my idea of Juliet works. I just see her knowing when to back off and when to push. And he needs that. Thank you, thank you, Sammy!

Summary: I just saw the Clue challenge for the first time.


The Psych cast gets thrown into Shawn's wild game of weapons, rooms and...muuuurrrder.

okay, so third time reviewing this? have to say, still makes me grin ear to ear reading it like the 4th or 5th time around, lol.

needless to say those that would argue a shules relationship would ruin the show or take away from the comedic aspect...obviously hasn't had the pleasure of reading this. =)
