Bio:

Aw, look at this poor little profile, it hasn't been updated in years. Well, it's 2018 and time to change that...


My name is Miranda, I'm 21, and I live in Texas. You might see me referred to as Mira, insert, or around the web as one of my other usernames: Zena-Xina or omgubler


So, I've been watching Psych since I was in 8th grade (2011) and have not stopped loving it since then. While I'm in multiple other fandoms (Criminal Minds, Supernatural, Doctor Who, Sherlock, Leverage, The Listener, Monk, etc...) I think the Psych fanfics are my favorite. It's hard to explain, why, exactly, but there's just a whole 'nother level of community within the Psych fandom that you don't see in a lot of other ones. SO many amazing writers as well.


Going through my stories you will find a major difference in quality. Mostly because I wrote a lot of them in late middle school and high school. I'm in college right now, so I'd like to think I have improved, somewhat.


Also, I would just like to place a permanent thank you right here to my writing buddy Koohii Kappu for being the best buddy one could ask for.


Secondly, thank you to anyone who has ever nominated or voted for me in the Psychfic Awards and anyone has ever submitted a review. It means a LOT to me.

Summary: It was his fault that things had turned out this way.

All he had wanted to do was just check out a simple, routine lead.

No one was supposed to be even near the crime scene.

So then, how exactly did he end up lying in this alley, again?
