Loved it! Although I watch Castle, I've never read any Castle fanfic. This was very nicely done. I enjoyed it very much.

I've never seen Castle but I was able to enjoy this anyway. He was filled out enough here for me to understand his character well enough that I didn't feel lost - although I'm sure if I actually did watch the other show I'd have picked up on cues I probably missed.
Still, I like this.

That was a lot of fun! I'm more of a Bones fan but I like Castle and I think you neailed the characters well. Nice one :)

What a delightful fic! Thank you so much for crossing over and bringing the two together . . . Bones/Castle (or Castle/Bones depending on ones perspective) is my favorite crossover (although, I often wonder if Booth and Jethro Gibbs are related because of the Ralph Waite father/grandfather thing . . . grin Also, does Cam know Lanie because of the ME thing?
Anyway, back to YOUR story (and Em's birthday - happy belated, btw)
I'm so grateful that you had this last minute change of idea (and, of course, would love to see the original one as well). You had me at the first sentence . . . of course Richard Castle can come off as irresponsible, insufferable (and I'm guessing all arrogant) - especially during his Derek Storm period . . .
I like that their first meeting apparently has lead to more interaction that a friendship developed . . . of course Booth is jealous, of course he wants to check him out . . . a delightful ending (or is it just the beginning?)
My favorite line(s)
Her confidence falters, "I don't... I don't know these things as well as they would."
"Having read your book, I would suggest you know them quite well."
Would love to see more crossovers (from BOTH you AND Tadpole24)!
Thanks so much for sharing.

I don't even watch Castle, but I thoroughly enjoyed this. (And I could hear Nathan Fillion's voice throughout!)

Great story. Two of my (many) favorite fandoms together. And it makes sense, as Castle and Bones are both authors. Lovely story. Well done.
| Aching Bones chapter 1 . 3/5/2012
Totally loved this. I really hope Castle takes her advice there at the end. Just love how you built the story along both series. I love how Bones took to him in the beginning (eventually). It's definitely his charm. Love how Booth wanted to check him out and of course he would...'predator' is right...but a lovable one. Totally enjoyed and would not mind you doing another Bones/Castle crossover fic.

That was a beautiful birthday present to Em :) Great story!
| my-completeness chapter 1 . 3/4/2012
Terrific fic! I would LOVE to see those two meet, it would be hilarious.
| Michele chapter 1 . 3/4/2012
Awesome story! This seems very in character for Castle and Brennan-I'd imagine if they ever met each other, it'd go something like this. Too bad you're not writing for both shows...we'd have one heck of a crossover!
| 2BBornot2BB chapter 1 . 3/4/2012
Delightful! I'm rather fond of the Bones/Castle/literary connection and this was sweetly usty in two directions. Thanks for sharing!
| Paula chapter 1 . 3/4/2012
JUST IT ;) REALLY.
I WANT MORE FICTIONS LIKE THAT :D
| Phosphorescent chapter 1 . 3/4/2012
Awww, this is wonderful! I do love a good Bones crossover fic, and this one definitely hit the spot. Everyone was in character and interacted believably with each other. Thanks for sharing!
| Old Romantic chapter 1 . 3/4/2012
Aw, I loved that! Being a fan of both shows, I'd have to say you did them both justice. :) I'd love to see Castle and Brennan meet on screen! If only they weren't on different networks, lol...
Oh, and nice detail having Brennan be the one responsible for him killing off Storm! That was awesome. :)
| Tadpole24 chapter 1 . 3/4/2012
Oh E! I just want to give you a big hug! Thank you so much! This is about 7 kinds of perfect! You brought my two favourite things together and created something awesome! And you dipped your toes in the Castle end of the water, which is just so exciting and worthy of a giant congrats! :)
Brennan and Castle. Both writers. It's so obvious that they should be written together, but damn, I never thought of it! You're so clever!
I loved how they met. I always adore how you write Brennan, especially early Brennan. You have a knack for her voice and that was not missed in this fic. And Castle...so smooth and suave and for all that charm he has no effect on Brennan. So true to character. The progression is wonderful too, the times you chose for our glimpses into their worlds...just so good!
Seriously, you've made all my dreams come true. Hehe.
Thank you so so much! It was definitely worth the wait and please, please, please don't be sorry :) you've done amazingly :)
