Author has written 10 stories for Bourne series, and Mentalist.

I'm a fairly normal person... except for the fact that I'm hopelessly obsessed with the Mentalist and multiple movies, and I have a terrible habit of falling in love with couples who may never be together. Jane and Lisbon are my main obsession now, and will probably be what I mainly write about, so please let me know how I'm doing before I go too far and torture you with unsatisfactory writing :P Fanfiction is what I do when I can't sleep and feel like procrastinating, and helps me get through breaks in my favorite shows. Anyway, check my work out and give me a shout out!! :)

"Men are more ready to repay an injury than a benefit, because gratitude is a burden and revenge is a pleasure."--Tacitus

"Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is not safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing."--Helen Keller

"There is a sacredness in tears. They are not a mark of weakness, but of power. They speak more eloquently than ten thousand tongues. They are the messengers of overwhelming grief, of deep contrition, and of unspeakable love."--Washington Irving

Together by Travelingthrough reviews
Based on spoilers for season six, so avoid if that's not what you want. This is an imagined conversation between Jane & Lisbon in that universe, with an element of wish fulfilment padding it out.

The Painted Desert Rose by MonstersInside reviews
Story based on the Season 6 promo and my take on the events that lead up to, and followed, Lisbon's abduction. "Love is weakness. And I love weaknesses Teresa. I love that you were his weakness. Because you were so easy to get to. So easy, and he won't think twice about moving heaven and earth to get you back..." Written from Jane and Red John's point of view.

He devises a plan, but not one she will approve of. The conclusion, Rematch, is up now. Has Jane finally alienated Lisbon, and if so, how can he deal with that? COMPLETE

Frankie's Little Vegas by Snowflurryflake reviews
Leaving the real world for a while was supposed to give them a break – but the idea backfired when Lisbon and Jane found themselves caught in too long suppressed affection and passion. Set after the season 5 finale. Jisbon.

Show Me How You Feel About Me by Entwife Incognito reviews
Lisbon needed to know something from Jane. Her instincts and her reason told her that a real conversation was the right thing to do, both personally and professionally. But how, when Jane wanted to avoid it at all costs? Another 5x22 episode tag. Different, but sweet, I think. Try it! Rated a gentle "T" for suggestion. Disclaimer: I own nothing about The Mentalist.

Temptations and Touch by starry19 reviews
"It had been interesting, watching her try to avoid her feelings for him for the past several years. He, however, was much more pragmatic in these situations. He was probably better at hiding his emotions than she was, but he certainly hadn't hidden them from himself. " A birthday gift for CharmingNotDarling

Set post 4x24. "He realized anew what his leaving had done to her. She was the same beautiful Lisbon, but different. She had a new fragility around her, like she was nearly ready to shatter. Her cheekbones were hollowed; her collarbone would cut glass. In a moment, he understood: he had broken her heart. He was still breaking her heart."

The Best Stuff Around reviews
"Really, Lisbon, what would have happened if I had died?" "Well, let me see, Jane," Lisbon answered, as she turned from the fridge and took another bite of the pizza. "Paperwork would decrease dramatically, my boss would be off my ass about controlling you, I'd have to deal with a lot less complaints...do you want me to continue?" A light little piece of fluff and banter. J/L.

Burning Cold (Eyes) reviews
He was broken, yet perfect at the same time. She didn't know when she had first fallen for him, she imagined it was long before she was able to admit it to herself, but it was eyes. His eyes had drawn her in. She saw passion, hurt, betrayal, and hope. The sea-blue beauties. They were her weakness, and also why she was refusing to look into them at the current moment.

Love is Red reviews
"Lisbon, you will be taken, likely as the final trophy of Red John. Because you're the last person left who I trust completely. Most likely he'll kill a few more people who used to be close to me before that happens, so up here, alone, I have to figure out how to protect you. I won't have your blood on my hands."
