Thank you for this story. I am probably in the minority because I feel Castle takes far too blame for what happened towards the end of season 4. He had every right to be angry and he and Kate weren't in a relationship so he could go out with Jacenda. I hated it but couldn't fault him. He didn't realize he punishing Kate until Undead Again. I did feel for Kate because she couldn't understand why he was pulling away.

Argh! The angst! It hurts! But it is so necessary; we talk about it all the time. And it'll make the outcome of it all so much better, so much more exciting :)

You have captured that tortured feeling in this fic so well though! That angst and pain and feelings of hopelessness...Gah. I want so badly for Castle to stop his arrogant ways and just confront Beckett about what he heard, but this mess they have themselves in is kind of enthralling in its own manner. And it lets you produce great fics like this :)

I LOVE that last part of the first bit... "Go. Decide. Feel." It conveys so much feeling in just three words.

The end is heart breaking, but also fantastic! How his decision to uncomplicate his life might be the one he's made for now, but it may not be the right one. It gives the story that right amount of hope for the future. Maybe they *can* fix this!

Great fic! And it was an absolute pleasure helping you out! Any time :)

You said earlier this week that writing was kicking your butt, but you failed to mention you were wrong, and that you were kicking writing's butt instead. Cause this was awwwwwwesome. :)

"There are two messages on his phone, one from Jacinda thanking him for last night and one from his mother, telling him to keep thinking."

-*- I chuckled a lot here, because I envisioned her calling him as she walked away from him in the kitchen, before he got to his room. Lol.

And it was all just so poetic... like "They say that you can see an accident before the impact. That everything slows and gives you a chance to react. They lie. You don't get a chance. You just react.

Reactions mean decisions. You make them every day. Every second. He decided to make his life less complicated. That was a decision. But not all decisions are the right ones. Decisions make secrets. Secrets explode and leave broken fragments that need to be glued back together, piece by piece."

I LOVED This. It was a picture-painting, no-script-needed narrative right there at the end. Just... It was... what's the right word? Oh yes... extraordinary. ;)

Bear Hugs for my Roo. I heart you bunches! :D
