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!

Summary:

Virtual Season 2 - The game is financial fraud and, it turns out, Gus and Shawn are playing it.  As company bosses are arrested in droves, it's up to an uninterested Gus trying desperately to get promoted, and a sick Shawn trying desperately to get anyone to feel sorry for him, to find exactly where the fraud lies.  And with who.

Summary:

When Henry finds himself in trouble for murder, he has to count on the son who never takes anything seriously.  And when Shawn takes off for three days in the middle of the most important case of his career and comes back with a smile and a "did you miss me?", it's anyone's bet as to who can find it in themselves to forgive him.  Especially since Shawn doesn't seem to care.

But then, three days can be such a long time.

Summary: Past Featured Story

It seemed, as it so often does, a good idea at the time. But there's company for dinner, and Shawn's not exactly sure how he got from point A to point B.

But then eating at Dad's has always been like that.

Summary:

"I learned I hated my father. So, sure."

Based on Shawn's conversation with Lassiter when they tried to arrest him the first time. A back to the 90s fic. Bit of pre-season story-telling.

Summary: Past Featured Story

Shawn does something really stupid. Really stupid, really dangerous, and something that means he's really, really screwed. Which shouldn't surprise anyone.

Especially since no one knows where he is.

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).
