Summary: Shawn and Gus are serving 15 years, each, in maximum security prison for fraud and a twist of fate has them sharing a cell. Their families have disowned them, neither Gus' parents nor Shawn's even attended the trial brought forth by the Santa Barbara Police department. No one comes and visits thus leaving the former police psychic and his partner on their own. But dispite the odds against them they survive and even thrive within the prison walls; making friends with before unapproachable convicted murders and accidentally joining one of the prisons most notorious gangs, tattoos included. And life for them falls into a routine until a member of a rival gang is murdered and Shawn and Gus find themselves suspects. And who should be investigating? Why Santa Barbara's finest; Detectives Lassiter and O'Hara. Will Shawn and Gus learn to forgive their former friends for abandoning them or has prison changed them, hardened them, into the criminals everyone thinks them to be?

Summary: Okay, so I know everyone is excited about the new upcoming season(s) of Psych, and I was wondering (since we have the titles and ideas of some of the episodes already) if you guys would write down what you would want to see in the new episodes. For me, I definitely want to see how the Indiana Jones themed episode, the Vampire/Twilight episode, and the ever-demanded musical episode would turn out. You guys can write about whatever upcoming episode you're excited about and what you want to see happen :) Now go write me something and have fun!! ;)

Summary: In the beginning of "Pilot" we see Shawn enter his apartment with a blond woman.  We never see her again, not even in that episode.  He goes after Katerina with absolutely no mention of the other woman.  What happened to her?

Summary:

On the Psych website, under season 4 episodes, there is an interveiw with Maggie Lawson titled, "Scenes to look forward to? (Spoiler Warning!)". I want your impressions of this episode. 

 I would very much like to see an entire episode written, although NOT in script form. I would like to see it written like a book.

 Shules please!

 Keep in mind that, as the title of the interveiw states, there will be spoilers!

Summary:

The purpose of this challenge is to work the phrase "Are you a fan of delicious flavor?" into the weirdest situations. For example:

  • rebuilding his motorcycle engine
  • having sex
  • hostage situation (i.e. Shawn would then throw his smoothie onto the gun man to blind and/or distract him allowing Buzz or Juliet to get away)
  • in an interview for a new Psych secretary

Summary:

Choose from one of three poems, linked here:
Fire And Ice, Robert Frost (http://www.poemhunter.com/poem/fire-and-ice/)
Whatif, Shel Silverstein (http://faculty.weber.edu/chansen/humanweb/projects/MeghanUng/whatif.htm)
Rain, Don Paterson (http://www.newyorker.com/fiction/poetry/2008/05/26/080526po_poem_paterson)

 (The last one is my personal favorite poem.)

Instructions:
Your story can be in any genre of any length. Extra pineapples for humor, since those aren't exactly the happiest poems ever. Try to stay away from using original characters and crossovers.
Option 1: Have a character recite or quote the poem.
Option 2: Let a poem be the inspiration for your fiction and link the poem (or type it, depending on the length) at the beginning of your story.
