This was a really sweet one shot. I like your author's note. That Josh isn't in the picture. You get lots of points for that. Lol.
But really, it's very sweet. I like it when author's give either of them a back story that's really believable, meshed into present moments that are as believable. You wrote his hesitance and her - well, myriad of issues - really well.
Them snapping pics together and being so comfortable with it? Awesome. (:
Good job. :)

This was utterly wonderful, I really like it. It is so cute, you wrote it really beautifully. It is so simple, without being either boring or simple. Such a lovely moment, I enjoyed it a lot!

I enjoyed reading it :)

ahh, this was so good :) very descriptive and original. I love how Beckett's not afraid to show Castle her past. And I like how you intertwined the case with Beckett and her mother.

Wow. Just wow. You probably have people telling you a llll the time how amazing this is, but honestly you flawlessly captured castle and becketts personalities... Not to mention their banter and relationship. That moment where they're suddenly throwing ice cream at each other and even the waitress joins in laughing was just perfect and the slight sadness mixed with a sorta joyful nostalgia of Beckett sharing that little bit of her past was amazing. Your ability to avoid cliche with just the right amount of sweetness and humor is fantastic :)

Okay, I have to I respectfully disagree with your disclaimer. You don’t own nothing. Because you own some pretty damn amazing writing skills.
Oh, and yes, I am here to feed your apparent review addiction, hehe…
Anyway, I really like this. It’s sweet, playful and really fits how Castle and Beckett interact. The ice-cream smashing was really funny, especially with the pictures being taken of that moment. I loved that Kate was on the wall of fame. I don’t know if you’ve seen ‘Despicable Me’ but there’s a really cute (animated) little girl in that movie, and somehow I can imagine Kate having looked something liked that. Really cute. Also, I think the beginning was really great too, particularly the moment Castle asks “Does this give you hope?" because I could perfectly picture it, with him standing behind her, both knowing exactly what he meant. I like their silent communication.

What a positively lovely story.
I find myself hoping you'll decide to continue it.

Very nicely developed and written. It reminded me of the relationship that defined Castle and Beckett in seasons one and two: fluid conversation, easy (not strained) dialogue and a sense that they enjoyed the company of each other. Rather like two young people beginning to fall in love without even noticing it.

Fabulous. Loved it a Loooot.
This story kinda reminded me again why you are one of my favorite fanfic writers.
The premise was great and the execution brilliant. I was really impressed on how you started the story on a serious note touching the matter closest to Kate's heart, the need to bring closure to her mom's murder and how Castle stands by her side when it comes to this matter (Given how Kate is at her most vulnerable)
And then the fluff ensues. It started with a smile and I was grinning from ear to ear by the time the story ended. (Except for when Kate thought about her walls, damn those walls, what are they made of, Just wouldn't break even with all of Rick's efforts)
I loved the idea of bringing up Kate' mother again (and the picture of little Kate) but this time in a more positive/cheerful setting. The banter and the romantic moments between Castle and Beckett were wonderful and so was seeing a playful Beckett smashing the ice-cream cone in Castle's face.
I wonder if we would be lucky enough as viewers to see such moments on the show. (Hopefully after Josh is gone and/or they get together) Becaue with the sizzling chemistry between Nathan and Stana, they would burn our screens in those romantic moments.
Sorry, kinda got carried away. Once again, a very well written story. Thoroughly enjoyed it.
Till next time.

Very cute-I liked the story from setup to conclusion, the backstory that you filled in, the picture on the wall. Just what I needed to start my day with a smile. Thanks!
