Author has written 30 stories for Mentalist.

The Mentalist series compelled me to write fan fiction for the first time in decades. (Thank heavens fanfiction.net didn't exist in the '70's, because I would have flunked out of college writing and reading Star Trek fan fiction.) I keep wanting to continue the conversations after an episode ends, or fill in more back-story of the characters. I enjoy reading fan fiction and hope people enjoy what I post. This site may well save me from alienating friends and family who, strangely, are not as obsessed with the characters and show. It's a pleasure to be here!

My TV tastes run toward science fiction and Star Trek (an original Trekker), good crime/mystery shows (The Mentalist, 24, The Prisoner, House), and cop shows (e.g., NYPD Blue, Homicide, Hill Street Blues). I used to write fan fiction in the 70's before it really existed. I've just stumbled into it again with The Mentalist and this site. I am especially fond of the mysteries, crime, hurt/comfort, and friendship genres. But anything can be done well and I also like romance, drama, adventure, and humor. I am most comfortable writing about mysteries, hurt/comfort, and friendship, particularly when I have ideas to contribute beyond just the character interactions.

I have one husband, two (grown) kids, two cats, and an 18-sided house. All the rest is subject to change without notice. Among other interests, I designed our last two houses, enjoy gardening (we spent all the money building the houses, so doing our own landscaping was inescapable), and enjoy reading. I was a manager in the health care field before retiring.

Misused, Abused, Mangled, and Otherwise Frequently Violated Words in FF

I offer this list in the interests of cleaning up word usage on FF. I post this because correct language is important to getting ideas across clearly and enjoyably, not because I am perfect (I'm not). It is disheartening that so many mistakes repeatedly appear in FF stories.

I have nothing but respect and admiration for writers for whom English is a second language. English has borrowed from so many languages, it is a mass of inconsistencies and special cases. I would find creative writing daunting if I had to write in a foreign language. Thank you to all ESL writers for bothering to write in the sole language I read. Any mistakes made while writing in a foreign tongue are more than understandable.

Drunken Uncle by Hayseed Socrates reviews
Jane gives Rigsby a hand - Jane/Lisbon if you squint. Just a little one shot from Rigsby's POV. Inspired by the time Rigsby referred to Jane as their "drunken uncle." Light inner monologue with a touch of bittersweet angst. I've added a sequel chapter that is set in the post S7 finale future - from young Annie Lisbon's point of view (Stan's daughter) - pretty fluffy stuff.

Into the Blue by half agony and hope reviews
The rational thing to do—the safe thing to do—would be to walk away from Jane as though this moment had never happened. The stakes were already high enough now with Red John so close, and tensions were escalating between them both. But despite all that—or perhaps because of it—Lisbon was tired of rationality, of reason, and of safety. Post Red John's Rules.

His Heart Knows No Bounds by wouldyoulikeacupoftea reviews
Lisbon feels that Jane thinks that she could do better than him. She sets out to give him the best gift, she can. Maybe a bit OCC and probably AU as well. Set after Blue Birds, but could be considered as a sequel to Her Beauty cannot compare.

Action and Reaction by lolly2222 reviews
After Jane pushes Lisbon too far, she decides to change her life dramatically. "I'll go then, as there is clearly nothing left here anyway. This place has become a prison for you Jane, sure the walls are in your mind but they are just as confining and I no longer want to be your cellmate." Initial angst but then romance, I gave it a T for mild language.

Version of how Jane removes his ring. Set shortly after Blue Bird, following the 'More Than Words' style i.e. no heartfelt declarations. (Because I can't do those, lol.). I realise that the ring/ring removal is a sacred thing to many fans, so I hope not to trample all over it. I welcome feedback, but I hope you will be gentle with me. Thank you. :D

AU/Noir-ish. SACPD Detective Teresa Lisbon didn't know what she was expecting when she entered room 416 to investigate an apparent robbery, but not surely that her past was going to catch up with her, in the form of family alliances, nor that a blonde gigolo, witness to the murder, was going to turn her world upside down, with an insatiable passion and a killer hot on their tails.

A tag to Forest Green that got out of hand. Lisbon considers the move to DC, Jane reacts badly, and Lisbon decides to get the truth out of him, one way or the other. AU after Forest Green.

I know I shouldn't be starting another story but I was asked after writing 'unarmed' where Lisbon tricks Jane, to write one about Jane.

What's the Matter with Jane? by Entwife Incognito reviews
Kinda rough, but that's how emotion is. Lisbon ponders Jane in this one-shot and finally talks to him. A tag of sorts for The Golden Hammer. Not much of a "T," but a little bad language. Some discussion of suicidal ideation. Hints at physicality. Tiny bit of romance. Disclaimer: I own nothing about The Mentalist.

Forgive me, Teresa.[...] The rose finally reached the ebony coffin, and a lonely tear dripped from her eyelashes, splashing on the polished wood. Scattering tiny little diamonds over it."

Bleeding Hearts by Wandergirl108 reviews
Sequel to my fanfic "REaDy or Not, Here I Come", this tells of Lisbon's recovery from what Red John did to her in that story…and some other things, maybe. ;D Some bits WILL be glossed over or phoned in, but what's important is that this bridges the gap between the aforementioned story and my grand finale, "Ruby Crown". Remember canon goes only through S4E9 and my prior fanfics.

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.

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."
