So, there goes my resolution to only dabble in Psych fic. I wrote the entire 11,000+ word draft for this story in twenty-four hours, which is something of a record for me, especially since I've been blocked of late. Oh, Shawn, why are you so inspiring?
I will be getting back to "That Cannot Be Perceived" shortly, x my heart! In the meantime, this interlude is brought to you by the number 2:00 and the letters AM. While this fic bears a certain thematic resemblance to the former fic, the two stories are unrelated.
And please heed the warnings. I mention this because honestly, I don't like to read fic like this myself (why the heck am I writing it, then?) Also, there's no romance. Sorry, shippers; I'm all about the gen in this fandom.
Plotted in collusion with the little sis Gnine, because two angst-loving fangirls are always worse than one, and we have a bad tendency to ask 'What if...' a lot when we fan together. I'm not actually going to confess that the best ideas here were hers, but...they probably were.
Disclaimer: Still not mine, for which in this case we are all grateful.
Thanks so much for the reviews - hope this keeps your interest!
Thanks to our most skilled & amazing archivist JessicaRae, this future-fic now has a category to call home!
And thank you so much for the reviews, really! I know this isn't everybody's cup of tea and was worried no one would want to read it, so I'm thrilled to know some of you like it anyway. (and I promise my next story won't be this angsty!)
I know I keep saying it, but really I can't tell you enough how much I appreciate the reviews; they make the posting of stories as enjoyable as the writing of them. Especially with a story like this, to know that I'm managing to evoke the emotions I was striving for is such a reward...thank you!
Individual review responses might be a bit delayed, as my internet connection has been very spotty of late, but thank you so much for all the reviews, they always make my day! Cheers me right up from my internet-deprivation sulk... ^^
Apologies - I intended to post this yesterday, then couldn't because we lost our net connection entirely. Fortunately it was restored before withdrawal caused my head to start spinning backwards. Addicted, me? You don't say!
And we're at the end of this journey. Thank you, everyone, for reading this far. Thank you for the reviews, if you left them; thank you for your attention if you didn't. It's un-Psych-like depressing enough that I didn't know what anyone would think of it - I don't know what I think of it myself - so I'm just happy someone read it, in spite of what it is.
