What You See Is What You Get (If You're Looking Hard Enough) by Sixthlight

 Fandom Category: The Mentalist
Pairing: Teresa Lisbon/Patrick Jane with a side of Grace Van Pelt/Wayne Rigsby
Fic Title: What You See Is What You Get (If You're Looking Hard Enough)
Author: Sixthlight
Rating/Warning(s): pg13
Genre: Fantasy, AU
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: You simply won't find another Mentalist fic like this. It takes place in a world where supernatural creatures are publicly accepted part of the community- Van Pelt is a witch, Lisbon is an Empath, Grisby is a werewolf and Cho is not all that human himself. Yet, they all work side to side without daring to share their secrets with each other. At least until Patrick Jane joins the team under the pretense of being a telepath (pretense being the key word here) and manages to out everyone's secrets before his is discovered. 
You will think those are unlikely circumstances for a Mentalist fic- it's certainly what I thought when someone recced this to me. 
Yet, those unlikely circumstances work incredibly well with the story: everybody miracoulously stay in character, and even the team dynamics and investigations remain unaltered. It's a work of brilliance.
