1. Said Too Much by DinerGuy [Reviews - 4] starstarstarstarstar (107 words)

First try at this 100 words thing. Let's see how I do ...

And, no, I don't own Shawn or Gus.

2. Shawn Has a Bad Hair Day & Hero by DinerGuy [Reviews - 0] (101 words)

Two for the price of one this week! And still only in 100 words.

If I copied someone else's idea, I'm sorry! I don't read the other entries before I write.

I don't own Psych.

3. Blue by DinerGuy [Reviews - 2] (103 words)
If there's a pattern here in my little 100 word stories, it wasn't planned!

4. Blood by DinerGuy [Reviews - 1] (103 words)
Oh come on, guys. With this prompt, of course I had a blast!! But, actually, I was a little upset because it had to be limited to a measly 100 words. :P It took me forever to get them all under control.

Of course, rated T.

5. Phone Call by DinerGuy [Reviews - 1] (194 words)

I finally got around to writing for the challenge again! And happily the rules have since changed and I can extend it to 200 words if I want. :)

I'm not extremely happy with this one, but I'm done fighting with the Muse, so here it is.

Spoiler for the "Ghosts" flashback.

6. Wedding Dress by DinerGuy [Reviews - 2] (190 words)

My only complaint with this prompt is the nearly 400 words I wrote before checking the word count. BUT I may use those and write a longer fic. This was just way too much fun! :D In the end, I think I finished at right under 200 words.

7. A Kind of Magic/Don't Stop Me Now by DinerGuy [Reviews - 1] (191 words)
This was slightly different when it started, but it took another turn ...

8. Under Pressure by DinerGuy [Reviews - 0] (150 words)

9. Save Me by DinerGuy [Reviews - 2] (196 words)

10. Lassiter Comes In Late by DinerGuy [Reviews - 1] (198 words)
Well, it's a little late, but I guess it's in keeping with the prompt. :P Thanks, Jenn, for extending the challenge a week more! (It totally slipped my mind to enter.)

11. A Special Anniversary by DinerGuy [Reviews - 3] starstarstarstarstar (211 words)
Um, in my defense, I have no idea where this came from. It was supposed to be a fun one-shot. Somehow I ended up with this.

Rated T.

HEADS UP!! Character death tag applies!!!

Edit: Thank you to everyone who voted for my little fic! I'm still in awe that I won!
