It's over for another year and though I enjoyed it, I am glad I can put it behind me and get on with my suddenly hectic life. I hope you've all enjoyed the process and challenge, enjoy reading and viewing the works and don't forget to leave a comment! We all know how wonderful a comment is, I'm sure.

A massive thank you to lothiriel84 for sorting out the masterlist post so that I just have to copy and paste it, it's a huge help.

Summary: When Cho gets injured on the job, Jane feels sorry for him and turns his attention to Cho's love life (or lack, thereof) which leads to an interesting turn of events for his own.
Disclaimer: The words are mine, the people are not.
Notes: This was supposed to be more directly adapted from Emma, but due to my inability to become motivated in writing this story I had to make a few changes. I think it still has some of the more basic essence of Emma in it.
Written for the Mentalist Big Bang (though I very nearly missed it). Also, big apology to agent_era for being the worst BB author in the history of BB. Also, apologies to everyone for breaking my own rule yet again and not posting directly to my LJ.

Summary:After a one-night-stand of comfort sex, Lisbon, needing to distance herself from Jane, travels to Queens, to take in custody a person of interest in a cross jurisdiction case; there, she’ll not only find Jane already waiting for her, ready to try to win her over once and for all, but also someone she and her consultant know all too well: Jane’s brother-in-law, Danny Ruskin, now posing as Queen’s Robbery and Homicide Detective Roe Sanders. Is the con-man up to something, or, when Lisbon allowed him to walk away, something in him changed? And when and if the truth will come out, how it will affect Danny’s budding relationship with tech expert Tanya?
Disclaimer:The Mentalist and Unforgettable are both trademarked and propriety of CBS Productions.
Notes:: Post My Blue Heaven and Green Thumb for the Mentalist, and post season 1 finale for Unforgettable. X-over with the show “Unforgettable”, au-ish, playing with the fact that the characters of Danny Ruskin on “The Mentalist” and Roe Sanders on “Unforgettable”, shows both aired and produced by CBS, were both played by actor Kevin Rankin.

Disclaimer: I do not own The Mentalist, and I'm pretty sure I never will.
Notes: AU-ish. Set before, during, and right after 6x09 and 6x10, so it clearly contains spoilers for those episodes. Written for The Mentalist Big Bang at mentalist_bb. A huge thank you to my artist kathiann and to my beta miss_peg, who also helped me develop the plot.

Word Count: ~6000
Rating: T
Summary:“It’s world-wide known, Teresa: a man’s right feet always points at the woman he desires the most.” When Ellen Lisbon tells such a thing to her sister-in-law, the lady-cop doesn’t know what to believe... especially because it’s her consultant, Patrick Jane, Ellen is talking about! Of course, she has always had a crush on the man, but she had never believed that her feelings could be reciprocated. But are Jane’s feet always pointing at her by chance, or is it love?
Disclaimer: The Mentalist, created by Bruno Heller, is propriety of CBS Production; by writing this piece, I don’t claim any money.
Notes:Inspired by the Season 1 episode 5 of New Girl titled “CeCe Crashes”, where CeCe tells Jess that Nick’s feet point at her, thus showing his attraction for her. The story takes place in a Red John Free future, and doesn’t contain spoilers for the current season of the show, even if there could be small hints to past episodes.

Summary: A case takes the team to a small town, where Lisbon's past comes back to haunt her.
Disclaimer: I definitely couldn't have written a season six like that, so nope, TM isn't mine.
Notes: It feels so long ago that I came up with this idea, though I've been working on it on/off since then. I'm a little sad I didn't get to put in another major edit, but I've just started a new job, so that kind of took priority this week. Breaking my own rule but LJ won't play and I don't have time to be copying/pasting 25000 words each chapter at a time THEN editing them. So you're getting a link to Ao3. Sorry!
WARNING: I don't do specific warnings, but if you get triggery things and want to check, let me know and I'll tell you the specifics.
