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.

Summary:

I've found that my previous summary was no longer accurate.  In large part due to the quantity of pure crack that has begun to invade this series.  Whump stories are still the primary theme, but you will also now find the bizarre, the impossible, and the compellingly weird.  

I make no apologies. 

That's it.  The summary is over.

Summary:

Redialing only connected him to voicemail. He'd only attempted once before shoving back his chair and running to his car. He'd checked his clip on automatic right before dropping behind the wheel. He'd called dispatch when he was five minutes from his destination. He hadn't once stopped thinking about the reasons behind his partner's sudden silence. He hadn't once considered he might not make it in time.

Summary:

They'd all survived that horrible night.  Survived and found new truths in the fallout of tragedy.  There are ghosts that will never cease whispering.  But soon enough, they'll find out it's the living they should have been listening to.

Sequel to SydneyWoo's incredible story, "I See Your Hubris...and I'll Raise You Fifty" - which I GREATLY urge you to read before this story as it continues what she began.

Summary:

There are all types of criminals. Some are super cool art thieves.  Some are big brothers who happen to be badass spies.  Some are personalities that live inside innocent dudes who are, on the whole, pretty decent people.  But then there are the bad ones.  The murderers.  The game masters.  The ones that enjoy cruelty and thrive on hurt.  Shawn Spencer has helped to put away all of them. 

He never thought there would be a criminal he couldn't beat.

He never thought he'd be drawn into a crime that would stain him with its atrocity.

How can he be the good guy... when he's done something so bad?

...unforgivable...

Summary:

They were two brothers who had decided to go into business together.  Private detectives.  One brother was a casual fellow with a taste for tequila, senoritas, and rolling the dice on fate.  The other ironed his tie, treated every lady like his own mother, and apologized for his older sibling.  Frequently.

When Rick and AJ Simon roll into Santa Barbara for vacation, they bring trouble along for the ride!
