Now that "A Very Risky Proposition" (aka "Risk") is done, I am devoting 100% of my time to working on my "baby" (or, the "dark fic"), as I call it. Started at the same time as "Risk", it has been woefully neglected for almost two years. It will be my first (and perhaps only) attempt at dark themes and it will be Shules (what else?)

As intense as this has been to write so far, it may also be the last story I write for Psych. It is set post-Season 6 and will ignore most of what happens for the rest of the series, although many things may end up slightly parallel. That's about all I can say for now. There is a great deal already written, but after doing a major overhaul of the plot, I now have a great deal more to tackle!

I have had so many people from this community help me along the way with this as yet unfinished work---please know, it WILL be finished. I will not post any of it until it IS in fact complete. So thank you from the bottom of my heart to all of you: (Kirei, Noir Cat, darth_sparrow, jenni_fromtexas, and Redwolffclaw)!!!!!

While I'm on the subject, I want to acknowledge two special people, one who provided the original inspiration for "Risk" - Captain Riterra Smith (she hangs out at the USA Psych forum and has a fic on FF called "The Wizard of Terminal City") and my current Beta/Muse, The Amazing Silverluna (she really is amazing folks - her stuff is on Psychfic and FF, check it out!) Love you guys!

Thanks to everyone for reading the stories I've posted so far and for leaving so many wonderful reviews. Your feedback is so very encouraging! Feel free to send me a PM if you have any questions or suggestions!

December 2014 Update: YIKES! It's been a whole year since I updated this! Anyone else experiencing frustration over how much RL intrudes on our fic-writing time???? Sheesh! But yes, I am *STILL* here, still plugging away on "the dark fic". I am like a dog with a bone that refuses to be picked clean. It may take me another year, but I *WILL* finish this thing (if I can stop with my bad habit of constant rewrites). All I can say at this point is that I am working on this and this alone. Any other notions I have/had about doing a sequel for "Risk", well, they'll have to wait.

Continuous and eternal thanks to Redwolffclaw and Silverluna for their encouragement and willingness to check my sanity whenever I need feedback (which is quite often!) Thanks too to everyone else who has helped along the way with this (including the folks mentioned above) for the contributions they've already made to this story! I hope that when it is finally finished, it will be an awesomely enjoyable read.

Thanks to all who nominated and voted for "A Very Risky Proposition" in the 2013 Psychfic Awards!

Summary: An undercover assignment forces Juliet to play a deadly game.  This is one puzzle Shawn must solve or risk losing everything.
Written for the Winter Shules Ficathon 2011 - my prompt was "Risk." When I posted Chapter 5, I said I'd be lucky to finish this before Spring 2012. Then Summer 2012 looked like a reasonable target. It is now 2013 and the story, at long last, is complete.
Spoilers:  I assumed everything from Seasons 1 thru 5 is now "fair game" - this story takes place shortly before the events of Season 6 canon events.
Notes:  While the overall story rating is "T", some chapters contain brief scenes of violence and usage of strong profanity.

Life's most important moments rarely announce themselves, and Shawn has certainly let a few slip away over the years. While on holiday with Juliet, Shawn encounters a very strange Doctor who helps him see that perfect moments happen all the time. He just needs to keep his eyes open.
