Psych is easily the most all-encompassing fandom I've ever had the delight to be a part of.  Even with the series now at its end as regular series (we still remain hopeful for TV movies!) the passion for these characters has not waned!

I'm not sure I'll ever grow tired of writing for Psych.  

 

Psych-related projects:

Since 2013, I have taken over control of managing the annual Psychfic awards.  I am head of the committee and I create the awards banners and update pineapple awards icons. Visit the Psychfic Awards on LiveJournal!

Follow the Psych VS Twitter for updates and news

As of 2014, I have initiated a new Psychfic Virtual Seasons which picks up immediately after the final aired episode.  Please send me an email or private message if you would like to participate as an episode writer.  Writers must be members of Psychfic and have a high degree of writing aptitude in order to qualify.

I am the founder of S.W.A.T. (Shawn Whumpers Appreciation Troop)

Follow the Fanfic & Fanart Hub on Tumblr for art and fanfic links!

 

Older History:

I've been writing, if you want to be technical, since I was six years old.  My first efforts were usually four page, stapled together picture stories about animals.  I could easily drift far and wide into imagination land with my favorite characters- up to creating a whole world where I existed with them as one of their friends. 

At the time, I had these stories in my head only- and it wasn't until my teen years that they began to appear on paper. 

My first fanfic, if I remember correctly, was Star Trek.  I don't really remember what it was about- and I think I deleted it fairly quickly.  Keep in mind, I didn't have my own computer, so all my efforts were saved to a floppy disk.  (yes, ancient, I know!)

My first posted piece was an X Files story.  Again, I don't remember what I wrote... though this is likely for the best.

I slowly began writing more and more.

The first series that really catapulted me into fanatic was Monk.  I actually joined a group- created a page- and corresponded daily with other fans.  This lasted about a year or two.  As it was, there was no unified gathering spot.  People appeared randomly before being swallowed up once more by other interests.  I eventually quit writing for the series completely.

I grew interested in anime in the meantime- dabbling with a few stories here and there.  I met a like minded woman after posting one of my longer stories.  She liked my work, and invited me to join her writing group called Crackbunny Syndrome.  Along with two other people, they'd begun writing a story that was slowly growing from a minor bit of fun into something far, far more than ever could have been anticipated.  The story can be found here: (on going) Balance of Power

It was during the second season of Psych that I first discovered Psychfic.  Having only had an on and off interest in the series prior to this, my interest suddenly skyrocketed when I began reading the fanfic that was being posted here.  Previously, the only fic I knew of was the material on fanfic.net.  Discovering this community was simply the most fabulous online experience I've had to date.

Suddenly I was in love with the show!!  Going back to watch episodes I'd missed, I wondered how I could ever have let myself miss a single one! 

It wasn't long before I began writing fanfic.

I haven't stopped since.

He’d asked me to help.  I’m his wingman, the Goose to his Maverick in spite of the fact that Shawn actually has the former nickname.  But that doesn’t matter.  It doesn’t matter one damn because I stayed behind when he went forward. 

 

I stayed behind.

 

"There Might Be Blood" alternate ending.  Seen through Gus's eyes.

Arguments are never clean.  They're irrational, drawn out, and always lead to hurt.  Sometimes there's a resolution, sometimes there isn't. 

My response the Christmas episode and the sitcom ending I wasn't quite satisfied with.
