“keep on, keep on, keep on/ telling me i’m what you need” and “i know i’m not supposed to/ color in the lines when it comes to you” and “if it happens, then it happens/ happy to have you at all” and “do you wanna know how the story ends?/ hazy and spun out, just more than friends/ weekend wonderful, a dizzy dream/ a colorful lie, we made a hell of a team”
like this really just sums up psych and their relationship doesn’t it?
that’s why they never get together. shawn clings on to the one source of happiness he can find outside of gus - juliet. and gus clings to the one source of happiness outside of shawn - selene.
because having each other in any way even if it comes with a feeling of longing and never being really content, it’s always better than the alternative. of losing each other forever.
@jarkaikenobi sfgahshsh honesty ??? same. i first watched psych in 7th grade and really liked shawn/jules. then i rewatched it in 8th grade & i was like oh ???? best friends to lovers anyone ???? and then i rewatched this april/may and was shook. because i only vaguely remembered shipping shawngus and up until 3x02 i was like “yeah they’re so cute and they should’ve dated but it’s mostly just in my head.” and then shawn dropped his “gus won’t date me bc he’s too good for me” line and i- that was the turning point yall. i was like ok i was so not making this up 5 years ago they’re definitely in love and i know imma be queerbaited for the next 5 seasons. (then it got too hard to watch so i stopped at 5x03 and rewatched again lol). but um. yeah. they really did that to us.
and ???? 🥺🥺🥺 thank u ???? honestly shawngus nation has saved my soul we’re the only intellectuals on this site 😤😤
ok so who’s gonna draw this for us 👀👀👀
dude. DUDE. you’re 10000% correct.
abigail and shawn have kind of the same banter that shawn and gus do.
i know there’s more in regards to gus and rachel but the one quote i remember (i haven’t watched past s4 in like 5 years) is when gus and rachel are talking and they do the “come on son” thing and shawn literally looks at gus and says (scandalised, jealous, upset) “you’re doing our ‘come on son’s with her!?”
stop you’re making me cry you’re mean
(and ?? gus doesn’t know it’s shawns last night. because shawn doesn’t tell him he’s leaving (which is actually canon).
it’s a normal summer night and they’re hanging out on the beach and gus is a little bit too in love and a little bit too sad but he’s also really really happy because it’s just him and shawn and the moon and stars - just how it should be.
and then they go home and they don’t even hug because shawn’s coming over for pancakes tomorrow and so gus goes to sleep thinking about the moonlight in shawn’s eyes and how shawn only likes his pancakes cut in triangles.
and when gus wakes up and the pancakes are made, he’s waiting and waiting and waiting for someone who will never show.
it doesn’t really occur to him what’s happening until he goes over to shawn’s house and henry doesn’t know where he is either. and it takes a while but gus puts it together.
the distant guilty look in shawn’s eyes as he stared out at the ocean, how he sat a little too close to gus and didn’t seem to want to say goodnight. how his motorcycle, back pack, and favourite sweatshirt of gus’s are missing.
and gus gets a sinking feeling in his stomach and goes back home, lays in bed in shawn’s t-shirt, listening to the rain thundering against the rooftop, and waits for a phone that will never ring.)
bruh….. that’s some gay shit right there.
i don’t know about you but i don’t run my fingers through my friend’s hair when i hug them
and ??? it was right after he told shawn he loves him ???? like ??? hello ????
gus walks into a bank is the gayest episode of psych right after murder? anyone? anyone? bueller?
hot take but if gus was a white woman he would’ve been shawn’s main love interest in psych
🎵 shawn and gus are in love 🎵
concept: in “Last Night Gus,” instead of Shawn having called Juilet and said they should move in together, he called her and said some shit along the lines of “i love u jules and that’s why i need to tell u how in love i am with gus”
and when she finally talks to him about it he’s jsut like “i OBVIOUSLY MEANT THAT AS A FRIEND HAHAAH” because he has never breathed a fucking word of it to anyone ever and is Panicking™
and jules is like “no, u were pretty explicit” and is now plotting how to pursue this new opportunity presented to them
gus is none the wiser about the double whammy relationship upgrade he will soon be offered (and likely spends some time being very conflicted and concerned when shawn and jules start flirting with him constantly)
so i’ve been debating whether or not to answer this with just like a few thoughts, but this actually turned into an entire fic?
so hopefully i can finish it up soon (it’s relatively short) but !! i wanted to let you know i didn’t forget about this !!
thank you !! it’s amazing and i love this !!
(and also yes thank u voting was good it wasn’t too bad!)
ok but i’m crying???
“cause i can’t breathe without you near/ you keep me safe/ keep me sane/ keep me honest/ you keep me alive” and “you’re the beat playing in my heart” AND “spent my whole damn life/ trying to get things right/ and for every one of my mistakes/ you gave me all these chances”
like HELLO ??????!!!!!
you know i was gonna copy some of the lyrics to point out how correct you are, but it would really just be the whole entire song ????
love this for them 🥰
yeah you’re so right 😩
so who’s gonna write them all anyway 👀
