Author has written 74 stories for Mentalist.

I'm a writer/editor/webmaster/all-around small-staff geek in the metro DC area who, in my limited spare time, is obsessed with The Mentalist. I read fanfic a lot in the late 90s but was never inspired to write any until Crimson Hat sent me in search of a fanfic community. So I will always be very grateful to the show for opening a new world—and what a wonderful world it is!

I'm an introvert and crazy-cat-lady-in-training, with the stereotypical geek love of all things sci-fi. But I also love strong female characters and puzzle-solving, so The Mentalist has diversified my TV watching.

"His eyes are exactly the same, she notices immediately. Still a paradoxical mix of joyous and haunted, still a brilliant sea green. There are a few more lines around them than she remembers, but even these suit him somehow." A reimagining of My Blue Heaven.

"'If you promise me you'll be ready,' she says, 'I'll wait. As long as it takes. But if this isn't something you want, or if you don't think you can move on, I need to know. I'll understand.' She sees his mouth form his response, and she has to look away as he answers. 'No,' he says. 'I don't want you to wait for me.'" Post Violets.

"'I was just looking out for my teammates,' he says quietly. 'That is what we are, right? A team,' he clarifies. Agent Lisbon smiles again, and it suddenly occurs to Jane that she is beautiful. Not like Angela had been. Rougher, sharper, somehow…but still beautiful. 'Yes,' she says finally. 'A team.'" Pre-series oneshot.

Walk This Way by Hayseed Socrates reviews
This is not a tag, but rather a "deleted scene" from Little Yellow House. It takes place after Jane explains to the team that George Holiday (the poker playing mob boss) needs a different kind of motivation so they can get Jane into the poker game. Remember that leather skirt?

Partners by Hayseed Socrates reviews
A series of stand alone one shots examining the complex and fascinating Jane/Lisbon relationship as set forth on the show. I attempted to keep them in canon during the show, then tried to keep post show installments in time as our couple continued their life together. This chapter, Private Eyes, is the final one, completing the series. Hope you've enjoyed this journey.

Pull Me Close by half agony and hope reviews
"Brushing aside his fears as though he's made some kind of unforgiveable sin in trying to save me is not the way to handle this. Because I understand now. Jane is not only trying to save me. 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.

Red Violin by inkstainedfingers97 reviews
Patrick Jane flipped through his program impatiently without attending to the details of its content.

Lisbon is very skittish to commit to full romantic relationship with Jane. He's patient & loving while she finds her way. First 3 chapters 'K to 'T,' Last 2 'M.'

Carnival Surprises by Entwife Incognito reviews
It's not the nap chapter for 'Christmas Foibles' that some have asked for, but this slightly farcical one-shot is more in my usual genre. Jane and Lisbon in an irresistible, adventurous meeting. Date night away from the baby(s). It gets off to a fast start, so shoo the kiddies. Disclaimer: I neither own nor profit from The Mentalist.

And We Can Light a Match by half agony and hope reviews

Burgundy by half agony and hope reviews
"I'm not sure this was a good idea," I say. "Because knowing you love me doesn't change anything.

Happiness, Rediscovered reviews
"Suddenly he was struck with the truth of his situation: his past wasn't just holding him captive. It had also imprisoned Lisbon, dooming her to a wait for something she was losing hope would ever happen. And now he didn't have the excuse of his revenge, or of putting her in danger. What was he waiting for?"

Second Hand reviews
Follow up to In the Cards. It's not necessary to read that first, though this will definitely spoil that one if you haven't. Patrick Jane finds it's not always easy getting back to normal after a tough case.

Impressions reviews
Spoilers for My Blue Heaven and the promo for Green Thumb. Little sketches from various points of view, just some random thoughts I had after the episode.

Orange Magic reviews
After Las Vegas, Jane tries to put his relationship with Lisbon back on solid ground in his own inimitable way. Citrus-scented Jisbon fluff with a side of silliness. Minor spoilers for season 5, then speculation about the upcoming reunion.

Recovery reviews
Follow up to Repentance, so you'll want to read Redemption, Regret, and Repentance first (they go in that order). This is more or less AU at this point but started out based on spoilers for My Blue Heaven. "She'd been back in Sacramento for a week, and she already wanted to kill him."

Redemption reviews
Tag to Red John/prequel to my story Regret. Spoilers for the end of the episode. "He couldn't give her the happy ending she'd longed for, but he could at least give her a fighting chance at a new life in which she could find peace, perhaps even happiness."

Wedding Planning reviews
Follow up to Wedding in Red, which felt really unfinished to me. Jane and Lisbon talk about weddings. Hypothetically, of course. Or so Lisbon thinks.

Repentance reviews
Follow up to Regret, so includes spoilers for My Blue Heaven. You do need to read Regret first or you'll be lost. "Repentance?" she echoed. "For which sins?" "You know better than I," he said softly. "They were all against you."

Regret reviews
Inspired by the TV Guide post-RJ spoilers. Don't read if you're staying spoiler free! Lisbon reflects on the nature of regret. Not as depressing as it sounds, I promise!

The Kiss reviews
Tag to Red Listed. "I saw the look on your face when I kissed Hightower's cheek. You might as well have been holding up a sign saying 'When's my turn?"

Facing Facts reviews
Set during 6x2,so spoilers for that. "Red John had taken more than one happy memory away from him. Lisbon's face had long been a source of comfort—perhaps his greatest comfort. Now every time he looked at her, he saw the afterimage of the killer's mark. And yet he couldn't stop looking."

In the Cards reviews
NOW COMPLETE! Jane teases Lisbon about her poker skills, which leads to a conversation that surprises them both, spirals into plots and counter-plots, and leaves them facing a dilemma they never imagined, but might secretly want. Minor spoilers for early season 5, but goes AU from there. Thanks to phoenixx87 for the cover!

Blind Spot reviews
"You let these beautiful, mysterious women suck you in and play you, thinking you're playing them. It's your greatest weakness, and Red John knows it. So do I. Everyone does but you." Follow-up to There Will Be Blood, 5x16. Lisbon tries to enlighten Jane, but things don't go as she planned.

Predictable reviews
"He didn't mind her trying to figure him out—that was flattering, even. But he didn't want her thinking she'd succeeded." A tag of sorts to Little Red Corvette. Fluff alert: this is so fluffy it might float away while you're reading it.

Carded reviews
Lisbon receives unexpected—and unwanted—congratulations on bringing down Volker. Despite the title, this has nothing to do with my other fic "In the Cards," I'm just not that creative when it comes to titles. Friendship with the barest hint of more.
