Author has written 15 stories for Castle, and Forever.

In kindergarten I imagined new scenes for the movie Dumbo, and the pink elephants have been parading through my head ever since.

I currently write for the Forever fandom. ABC may have cancelled it (boooooo), but FANFIC LIVES ON!!

NOW ACCEPTING PROMPTS AT MY NEW AND IMPROVED TUMBLR! By "new" I mean I'm actually using it again. By "improved" I mean...I'm actually using it again. ;)

Please note: my writing style is rated T and below. I also don't write slash. If either of those are what you're looking for, there are lots of other great authors who will do a better job with your prompt than I would.

I am on Twitter very sporadically @pinkel5.

A Crack in the Silence by starry19 reviews
"She would always remember the overwhelming relief in his eyes, his posture, his words when he'd found her at the scene. His shoulders had actually sagged, and he'd reached for her hand with fingers that were shaking."

Mike Hanson Loses His Bliss reviews
"Life was so much simpler when Henry was just the slightly spooky, scarf-loving M.E. and Jo's unofficial partner slash will-they-won't-they friend. Now I know this massive, impossible secret– not that I ever asked, mind you, or remotely WANTED to know– and life is getting more complicated by the day." Hanson reveal fic.

Déjà True reviews
When Henry treats her skinned knee, Jo suddenly remembers a moment when she was almost five and he was…exactly the same. Two-shot companion to Vanishing Point, but also stands alone. Post-finale.

No Place Like Home reviews
"She didn't know his secret yet—so why was she here? Henry said the only thing he could think of. 'I can explain.' 'Save it,' Jo said. 'We're late for dinner. Welcome back, by the way.' She closed the distance between them by hooking a finger under his towel and pulling him in, and then she kissed him." Not exactly AU...more like canon-based spec fic. Or something.

Vanishing Point reviews
It's 1985. Abigail left four years ago, and Henry still sees reminders everywhere—even in the child he finds hiding in an alley. One-shot, loosely inspired by "The King of Columbus Circle."

Henry's careful plan to tell Jo his secret falls apart with one shocking phone call. She needs her partner now more than ever, but uncovering the truth may reveal more than either of them bargained for.

Both Sides Now reviews
"At least Jo didn't witness his death moments ago, but she happened to be looking for him in exactly the right place now. Unless he didn't want his partner to find him emerging from the East River naked, yet again; then it was exactly the wrong place. This would be so much simpler if he were still bleeding to death." One story, told from above and below the water line.

The Shirt Off His Back reviews
SPOILERS for 5x01 promo. Since the coffee maker is not in his bedroom, she needs a shirt. So here she is, standing in his enormous closet, shuffling through the options and having a surprisingly hard time deciding what to wear. A random little one-shot based on a trivial detail.

Fathers and Daughters reviews
A Solid Ground follow-up. Some things never lose their awkward-making powers as you get older: a surprise appearance by Dad is one of them. Jim and Kate, and Castle and Alexis, each bond in their own way. For one pair there is food; for the other, weaponry.

Solid Ground reviews
A phone call, an impossible decision, and suddenly thirteen years' worth of questions all come down to seven days' worth of answers: this was their first week together. My take on early season five.

They weren't dating. They were Together with a capital T, and the world at large was about to find out. And she had nothing to wear. Mostly fluff, post-post-Always.
