| AllyLobster chapter 100 . 2/20
Finally started this series, and I finished it all in 2 days. Now it's after 1:00 am, and I need to be awake in less than 6 hours. Seems like a good stopping point, right? But I'm definitely looking forward to reading the next bit in the series. :)

Hey...just wanted to say that I am really enjoying this story...AND that I love the shout out to Victoria Holt and Barbara Michaels, two childhood favorites that I still love! Bride of Pendorric is still my favorite gothic romance, and Shattered Silk is what I save to re-read whenever I am under the weather. I don't know of many people who are familiar with either author these days, so I got such a nice, cosy feeling seeing your reference here! Thanks for sharing your stories!

Kudos for including Doctor Who! It is such an amazing show. This fic is absolutely amazing, by the way. I was skeptical at first, but now I'm hooked!

A little case... A little Caskett snuggling... Oh look, they're already married with a kid! This might be a fun read...

So I've only read this far, but I just had to stop and ask. Do you have a child with Sensory Processing Disorder, or know one intimately? Because Dash is like a clone of my SPDer. Just saying I can TOTALLY relate to this story!

Omg. I started reading Castle fanfiction only a couple of days ago. I know this story isn't new. But it held my attention from the first chapter and being a voracious reader since I was young... Well you mentioned Alfred Slote. I was such a tomboy as a young girl and read him all the time... I loved Jake. My favorite sports book ever!

I just wanted to say that I showed my sister this chapter and she absolutely LOVED it! she wanted to go back to the beginning to find out how we got to this place.
Keep up the good work!

Wow, wow, wow!
I was glued to the story for hours. Seriously, the details and the description made me feel like I was right in the middle of the scene, or in Kate's head as she rambled, in Rick's brain as he worried, heck, I almost got into Dash's mind sometimes.
Dash is amazing, really truly amazing. I was tired by simply reading about them, but he was such a cute, lovable child, that he made up for all that. I think what you did here with him was brave. It's not so easy to write about a mother that loses perspective in things, that somehow doesn't put her child first, because that's what all women *don't* want to be when they have a child. It was not banal, or post partum blues, it was real and raw, and I loved how they tiptoed around it, until it hit them smack in their faces. It was a wonderful growth for Kate, and a wonderful way to let Castle adapt to it, shift back his perspective. It might have taken them 18 months, but they got there, they found a balance. It was beautiful.
The detail with which you described a week was incredible. The words were breathtaking, and soft, and full of love, their fights raw and sincere, the touches so palpable I could almost feel their arms around me as they hugged. I loved how Beckett got more and more physical as the days moved along, how we realize that all she needed was a break, like we all do. She straightened up her priorities, realized what's good for her, for Rick and for her family, and she acted on it. It takes an incredibly strong woman to do that. She blindsided me when she decided to drop her mother's case, but the more I dwelled on it, the more sense it made.
There were so many symbols, and so many things you dragged into the story and you didn't leave at that. It all gets tied back up at some point, even the loosest leads, and you did it wonderfully.
The parts when Rick writes and Kate reads or observes are pure genius, your take on writing made my fingers itch to close the browser and spend a whole day glued to my keyboard. Seriously, it probably made me a better writer simply reading this. I'll be forever grateful.
There's so much I would like to say, so much that I could have commented 100 times, but they would have gotten boring and sappy, so yeah, a long one at the end, before I dive into one of your next stories in this series. just seeing how many of them there are makes my heart sing.
Thank you so much for publishing this. It's been years that you wrote it, but still, so so good.

Wooow, you're really blow my mind!
It's an amazing story and you're just a genius author! Really
I read your fic in 2 days, I can't even stop from myself!
So thanks a lot to put a little joy in this world )

Ok, so, this doesn't let me review more than once per chapter, so I read 99 and 100 and know I'm reviewing them here. Here we go.
I love the way that Castle let Kate decide if she wanted him to go in with Nikki Heat or not, and that she said she wanted Nikki to have a kid.
Now the "emotional" part.
So I guess this is it, I mean, 100 chapters of this story and I love you. All the plot of the whole story is perfect. The things you decided to add to the original story, all those fights you made them go trough. And all those moments they shared. This story is amazing. You have an amazing talent for words.
Yeah, that's pretty much it. Umh, I think I'm going to continue with the next two stories (promising not to abandon you out if nowhere) so, see you!

Men, that's deep. How horrible.

His books always helped her. That's so nice. I mean, that picked that and centered in it.
