Bio:

Age: 39

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:

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:

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:

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.
