Author has written 5 stories for Castle.

Hey guys,

I've been off the grid for awhile - sorry about that.

I left China in September and traveled around pretty much everywhere for two months, checking out various countries in Europe, Africa, and Central America before finally heading home. Awesome trip when it comes to life experience, not so much for actually getting any writing done, though. I'd like to take a second to apologize to all the wonderfully supportive readers of both 'Navigating Now' and 'Post Everything' that I left hanging during that time - it was inexcusable, guys, and it won't happen again!

I wasn't completely lazy during all those months, however, and I'm very proud to say that I've been working with the wonderful and always charming Leuska as her beta, on both her 'Dead to the World' and 'Rules of Engagement' stories. They're seriously awesome, so if you haven't read them yet, forget my stuff below and go check them out! You won't be disappointed!

And hopefully, now that I'm fairly settled back down in the States, more of my own writing will be forthcoming. I am even now diligently working on finishing up 'PE' - I have heard and received your message loud and clear, lvncastle! - and if there's enough interest in my continuing it, I will try to wrap up 'NN' as well. I can't wait to dive back into the fantastic community here, and I am still the epitome of a DIEHARD Castle fan! Always...

- Nik

Spiral Bound by Dmarx reviews
There were so many things he wanted to say to her, but that wasn't a part of their relationship. So he wrote her letters instead, hid them away, never intending for her to read them. Until one day, Kate stumbled upon them by mistake. Complete.

Dead to the World by leuska reviews
For months she's been gone. Months in which Castle's been forced to believe that Kate Beckett was dead. Eight full months in which he's missed her, craved her, mourned her. Now she's standing on his doorstep, two coffees in slightly shaking hands and Castle's world collapses. Direct spoilers for 4x23 Always, but most probably AU from there.

Your Own Devices by ColieMacKenzie reviews
He's pretty sure he convinced the lady with the smoky voice that he knew exactly what he was doing, knew how to give her a good time. A variation on the 'Vice Beckett' theme. For ER, on request.

Post Everything reviews

Navigating Now reviews
Just because the walls are down doesn't mean there's not rubble to clear away. Beckett works through the decisions made in 'Always' and their repercussions - both good and bad - Castle at her side.
