These are recommendations made by Tropers for Psych all of which have to be signed to stay on the page. Feel free to add a fanfic of your own to the list, but remember to use the template found here.You can also add to the current recommendations if you want. You can do it by adding your name to the recommendations line, or by leaving a review. Refrain from posting Conversation in the Main Page though; that goes in the discussion page.


Do warn when a fanfic may head into sexually explicit or non-canon territory. Some people just don't like it, and as we all know, Shipping Is Serious Business.
