Thank you:
A huge thank you to [ profile] miss_peg for introducing me to Skins, encouraging me to actually watch when I had this plotbunny before I'd even watched the show, for being an amazing cheerleader, brilliant beta and wonderful artist.

And for always being there for me, just generally. *hugs*

So, even if you don't want to read the fic because you think I'm completely and utterly nuts for mashing up these two fandoms, please go show her some love because she deserves it. The art is, after all, just a fraction of what she's done for me. ♥


Show timelines have been fudged a bit to make this work. It is set during Season Three of the Mentalist, post 3x09 Red Moon but before 3x16 Red Queen. For Skins, it is set post Series Five. The time of year has also been shifted to late Autumn, early Novemberish of 2011, after the clocks have gone forward. This means that episodes of the Mentalist are possibly happening at different times of year compared to when they usually would.

General notes:

Areas of this will require a lot of suspension of disbelief. I’ve taken a few liberties with certain characters, such as Craig O’Laughlin and Rich Hardbeck. I apologise if people think I’ve gone too far on occasion, but again, this is mostly to make the story work. Also, Grace and Alo have both been allowed back into Roundview. Or rather, David Blood allowed Grace to continue there and let Alo back in after he promised to clean up his act.

I would normally write the Mentalist fan fiction in American English. As this was written for the Skins Big Bang and originally started out as a Skins plot bunny with added Red John, I have used my native British English.
