Wild Card by Idan reviews
Patrick Jane is a resilient man, but now he realizes there might be something he can't cope with: his teenage daughter dating. Is her boyfriend up to something, or is he just imagining things? Sequel to Second Hand, which was a sequel to In the Cards, but don't worry if you haven't read those.

Seconds by In Hiding reviews
"Firsts" tend to be the milestones that are sought after and focused on (the first date, the first kiss, the first declaration of love) but in some cases, the second time around can mean just as much, or more.

Blindness by missingJane reviews
Going 'way back to the first season of The Mentalist, I loved the Bloodshot episode. I thought there was a lot of room in that episode to further explore how Jane's sudden blindness affected him. We only saw his brave front in front of Lisbon and Cho for a short time in the hospital. Here is my attempt to fill in more details of that difficult time for him in the hospital.

He's trying to save himself. I'd been so sure I was right, that I deserved to win this argument. But as it turns out, neither of us did." A variation on Copper Bullet.

"Damaged goods? Sure, you are dinged up and a dented, Jane, but you out of anyone has every right to be that way. Damaged goods is a little much. And moving on doesn't mean leaving everything in your past in a dusty corner somewhere, Jane." Her voice was as soft as cotton. "And someone would be willing to wait for you..." Based on season 3, if Grace had married Craig.

Jane, Lisbon and The Other Guy by TamTam613 reviews
Alternate ending to "Black Hearts" episode 6x21. I think this was my most painful scene in the entire series and I needed to blot it out.

There, in the recesses of the closet, she buried her nose in the stained collar of his shirt, breathing in deeply. It smelled faintly of detergent and oolong tea. She filled her lungs with the scent, half-hoping it would wind its way into her heart and assure her that what she feared couldn't possibly true.

Snow-white by guineapiggie reviews
Post 6x01 "Her green eyes still seemed too dark to him, and he hated Red John even more for every shadow he had cast in them. But she didn't know that and he wouldn't tell her. Because knowing just how much he loved her and yet knowing it could never be enough, not even that, not even if she could love him back - it would break her heart. And that would break his all over again."

Bad Penny by Entwife Incognito reviews
A season six imagining, tagging on the promo. Worked with what we were given, knowing that any of the promo elements could be misleading and out of time sequence.

"She took a deep, calming breath before pushing the door fully open and taking in the scene beyond it: two men standing face-to-face, one holding a gun, the other a knife."

The team listens to a private conversation between Jane and Lisbon. This story is juvenile, crass, and in poor taste. Any attempt to find any redeeming literary value in it is strongly discouraged.
