I always always love stories that start out mid-action! I know it's going to lead to this thrilling build up of excitement – and knowing, beyond a doubt, that there's gonna be injuries ahead it ASFDGFHGJKHJGHDSDFKFJDSHDYFDJSH!!!!!!!
And then I got a huge cackle in that the body of the story starts “30 minutes earlier” since so many times it's a day – sometimes even a torturous week before we get to the meaty gooey goodness bahahaha!!! EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!
Special kudos for sneaking a John Cena reference in there!!! EWAAAAAAN!!!!!!
“No. I just think there’s a way to watch wrestling and not get arrested for breaking and entering. Other people do it all the time.”
Shawn tisked and finished climbing the stairs, keeping half his attention on his argument with Gus. “Why do you always have to bring up Mexico? I have no shame for trying to re-home an abused donkey.”
“It was a mule, Shawn. Besides, there’s plenty wrong with it when it’s the Tijuana mayor’s prize winning mule!”
ASDFGTRSTERYTGJHFDGFGFJDSTDFJ!!!!!!!!! This may be the first time I've come across a Mexico reference that actually included details!!! AAAAAAAAHAHAHAAAAAAAAA!!
Guuuuuuuuuuuuh!!! Also? I NEVER get tired of a good “Shawn gets shot” fic!! Especially with this fantastic of a set-up!!!
AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH!!! That totally caught me by surprise!! Having Shawn show up at Woody's house!!! YOU SNUCK IN SOME WOODY!!! You are epic!!!!
Aldo I adore that Gus actually saved Shawn from getting outright killed! Heroic Gus is a precious and glorious thing!!!
I like how you have this moment where Carlton is interrogating Gus – and the shoe is sorta on the other foot in that now it's Carlton half accusing GUS of murder (even if he doesn't actually think Gus did it) rather than Gus presuming “I still think Lassiter killed that guy”.
GAAAAAAAAAAAAAH!!!! Okay, that was a blast from the past – pulling Jerry Carp in for a bit of backstory!! Awesome!!!
Max. He was a brown and white corgi mix
Also that is HILARIOUS that Woody has to pretend Shawn is dead in order to deal with him lolololol!!!
Also this is a perfect depiction of Woody! It doesn't matter that he's known Shawn for years – he's fully ready to believe that Shawn is at least possibly a murderer. But, at the same time, it doesn't stop him from being there to help. Gaaah!!! But Shawn don't have too much faith that Woody won't rat you out!!! He holds secrets like a sieve holds water!! ROFLOLOL!!!
Okay, that little moment of comfort between Lassie and Juliet is glorious and so sweet!!
I like the consistency of behavior for Gus – just like when Shawn was shot in the series – he's able to both be worried AND easily distracted from that worry. Specifically, in this case, with a pretty face lol! SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO happy that Henry was brought into this!!! LOVE!!!
Okay so even though I never saw the movie I think it's a genius move to bring back the “Reservoir Dogs” references xD
okay, also, I don't think I could trust Woody to babysit a cup of coffee much less an injured human hahahahaha!!
“If I live through this, Max, I’m going to invest in Kevlar everything.” The dog didn’t acknowledge his words besides changing the side of the bone he was chewing on. “Thanks, good talk.”
You know, that's about the most I get from Maximus as well – at best an interested head tilt before he lunges at my face. My dog is an ass sometimes xD
Shawn’s face scrunched in confusion, “Then where did you get the painkillers?”
“A gentleman never tells.” Woody said cryptically
“Peritoneal fluid, bowel juice.
Ewwwwwwwwwww...... Very good medical details though!!! But eeeewwwwwwww haha!
“Well sir, my name is… Max…” Oh my gosh, how do Shawn and Gus do this all the time… Bark…ing…ton. Yep, Max Barkington
*CHOKING* BAAAAAAAAAAAAHAHAHA!!! THAAAAAAAAT IS THE BESSSSSSST!!!!!!!!!!
And Henry just slamming a lid on those shenanigans haha!!
Suddenly, Max happy face faltered and his jaw seemed to clench. He looked to the door with his ears straight up and tail down.
That is EXACTLY how Max reacts to sound – like DEAD ON!!
A BODY BAG!!! GAAAAAAAAAH!! HAHAHAHA!!
Fyi story Max is a lot smarter than my Max. My Max would be at the door roaring his face off my this point with all his back fur mohawked in rage lol!
a man sized corgi outfit
Max headed for the officer's feet and attacked them
Now THAT sounds like my Max rofl!!
Aw yaaaaaay!! Happy ending!!!!
That was fantastic!!! Thank you so much for an amazing and epically long ficcage!!!!!!!

First of all, sorry for taking so long to review, I've been out of wifi range for the past week. Second of all, Spencer05, that was amazing! It was beautifully written and emotionally grabbing. You managed to capture the way that Juliet often pushes Shawn to become more honest with his own feelings perfectly. Anyways, thank you so much!!!

Oh, and thank you for including the fortune cookie! I know it sounds weird, but for whatever reason, I just really enjoy seeing fortune cookies being used as a plot device. So that alone made my day. :-D

First of all, I want to apologize for taking so long to review. I wanted to read it a couple times before I said anything, but I want you to know that this delighted me from the first minute!
Worse, it seemed like none of the three were ever going to even look up, much less invite him into their seemingly hilarious conversation (even though Carlton couldn’t for the life of him figure out what the joke was).
This is just SO Lassiter! Clueless and wanting to fit in all at the same time.
And *only* my poor sweet Lassiter would be so insecure that he let a fortune cookie turn his life upside down. He's been through so much in his life, and I love the way that you incorporated his flashbacks from life with Victoria to connect back to his "work ethic" problem.
“‘Morning Carlton!” O’Hara responded cheerfully, doing a double take as she spotted a wax paper bag held in her partner’s outstretched hand. “Umm… is that a muffin?”
“Yes.” Carlton answered, setting it down on the table. “And don’t worry, I’ve made sure it is free of any concealed weapons, blades, or bombs of any kind.”
And THIS!! THIS is just my favorite part of the entire story! And I don't even really know why! I just love this bit to death! It's just so in-character and spot-on and it's just like every time that Juliet does something nice, only Lassiter *has* to go and make it weird because he is *Carlton Lassiter* and *of course* he'd be worried that somebody would put a razor blade or something in a muffin. And honestly, I kinda wish that this had happened in the show!
And oh, Shawn. Naturally he's the one person who can tear Lassiter down and build him back up like it's nothing. Great ending!
And thanks for my prezzie. I think it's fabulous. :-)

Okay, this is a review for PineappleHead's gift story in particular although I plan to read all of them:
I LOVE CARLTON LASSITER, MY SWEET DETECTIVE BEAN. I'm having a rather shitty day but this story cleared my skin and melted me in a puddle of sugary goo. It revolves around every reason I love Lassiter - his seriousness, his rationality, his hard-working approach at life, his social awkwardness and his deep-seated desire to be appreciated and loved. Reading the scene with Shawn I didn't know if I wanted to laugh or to rush in and hug the hell out of him - and Shawn of all people getting what's wrong with him and reminding him why he should be proud of himself before he can hurt himself or others is just too damn sweet. I enjoyed this immensely, thank you

Werewolf Shawn thank you so much!! I love how you were making until stories and Shawn's ended up being true. Just imagining baby Shawn with little wolf teeth was so cute.
you did a great job this was so awesome.

Thank you for allowing us all to read this awesome gift. The humor, action and whump, all so good! Very enjoyable read.

This was amazing!! The pacing and the word choice and the way you left some details vague but completely sharpened others - totally brilliant! Plus despite the whump it was still chock-full of classic Psych humor - gotta love that! XD I almost wish it were longer :P
