@underture oh wow i don’t remember this 😔 i’m sure you’re 10000% correct though. i remember every time i watched psych all the way through there was this vibe where shawn wasn’t the best boyfriend like he didn’t really show he cared that much about jules. idk maybe that’s just me and my bad memory. but like it was verbally stated “shawn loves jules” “jules loves shawn” but not showed. shitty writing if you ask me.
@jarkaikenobi THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! so glad to talk to another intellectual 😩
like shawn and jules were cute in the first couple of season when they were flirting and stuff??? but 1) their whole relationship is built on a lie 2) jules has trust issues bc of her conman dad and it’s been explicitly addressed she doesn’t want people lying to her bc of that. shawn KNOWS this. he should’ve come clean then or broken up with her. 3) when they are in a relationship, shawn constantly lies to her (not just about being psychic). like after she knows, they both constantly lie to each other about what they’re doing and stuff (see BOTH movies). 4) shawn constantly ditches jules to hang out with gus !!!!! like ???? buddy ?????!!!!!!! 5) shawn did NOTHING after the broke up. he barely apologised. he just waited around for jules to forgive him. they should NOT have gotten back together. 6) they’re so much better as just best (not gus) friends. it makes so much more sense ESPECIALLY because gus !!!!! is !!!!! right !!!!!! THERE !!!!!!!!! 7) gus and shawn have WAY more chemistry than shawn and jules
Shawn and Jules are freaking adorable, and I’ll never be over them. Like, this is the 10th time rewatching Psych, and I’ll still never be over them.
Also, aggiornamento is spelled with an i. Poor Gus :/.
shawn imagining juliet repeatedly saying “i love you” to him vs. jake imagining amy saying “god i love that man” in each of their fantasy worlds is a parallel i cherish dearly
Hmmm a canon couple.
Alright, well, as I’ve said: I love a good slow burn that pays off. Colleagues to lovers is another good trope so points for that.
They seem to have a lot of chemistry and I do like their banter. Now I feel like I’m cheating on shassie, I was kinda all in on that Lassie guy.
Look, did I simp for Psych 2: Lassie Come Home and am I still currently simping? Yes. But, do I wish it had more Shules? Yes. Give me the married domestic content I deserve.
THANK YOU! I LOVE YOU SO MUCH, TOO, ANON! 👀 I’M *YOUR* BIGGEST FAN! I WILL WAVE A GIANT LEAF AT YOUR FACE TO KEEP YOU COOL DURING SUMMER. (My ears hurt from all this textual shouting.)
Some other couples that “someone” might have helped me remember I ship. *ahem*
- Cosima and Delphine from Orphan Black
- B'Elanna Torres and Tom Paris from Star Trek: Voyager
- Shawn and Juliet from Psych
- Xena and Gabrielle from Xena: Warrior Princess
When I started shipping them: I honestly have no idea, but it was definitely by the speed dating episode.
My thoughts: They’re just so adorable and such dorks. I love them.
What makes me happy about them: Almost everything about them. They’ve managed to edge out Oliver and Felicity as my number 1 OTP.
What makes me sad about them: Shawn lying to Juliet about being psychic and that whole thing. I mean he totally would have told her the truth if he had been to talk to her before Declan!
Things done in fanfic that annoys me: Nothing really, except maybe the Shawn x Juliet x Gus or Shawn x Juliet x Gus x Carlton, but I’m not a fan of threesomes or similar in general so I just ended up filtering that tag out.
Things I look for in fanfic: Just them. I like soft or hurt and comfort or just them in general. I’m not really picky.
My wishlist: Just more of them in the movies. Maybe let them have a kid or two because they’d be great and just adore their kid.
Who I’d be comfortable them ending up with, if not each other: I have no clue because once I end up attached to that couple, then I don’t really ship them with anyone else. (There are a few exceptions, but Shawn and Juliet aren’t one.)
My happily ever after for them: They’d have a kid or two and just be together. The living next door to Gus, Selene and their kid(s), too. Just let them be happy!
Holy cow guys, we are just one away from the end! It’s crazy. I originally had a much different idea for this one but I decided to work that into tomorrow’s prompt and give you guys some hurt/comfort feels today. Hope you enjoy! This takes place somewhere in the first half of s7.
Summary: Jules comes home one day very tired but thankfully Shawn is there to help and take care of her.
Warnings: bruises, innuendos, slight nudity (but it’s very slight like number 27)

Shawn jerked his head up as his girlfriend came stumbling through the door, exhaustion prominent on her features. He temporarily abandoned the TV remote- and the reruns of Punky Brewster- eyes never leaving her as she walked towards him.
“Hey babe,” He greeted and she flopped down next to him. Instantly, her head was in his lap and she hummed as he began running his fingers through her hair. “Long day?”
“The longest.” She sighed, relaxing into his touch. “It felt like the day would never end…” Rolling over slightly, she looked up at him with half-lidded eyes. “How was your day?”
Me: “Hi, I’m Xaeydn”
Imaginary Support Group: “Hi Xaeydn.”
Me: “And I made a tumblr account mostly to look through tags of my Ships…”
