Two Words by Stephxy reviews
I was struck by the way Kate responded to Castle in "Always", inspired by the emotion and truth in her voice as she said "I know"… This is a quick look at Kate's feelings during those moments. One shot, unless you want me to go further.

The Morning After Always by FireflyFanatic3x reviews
Just a short 1-shot 1500 words . What I picture the morning after 4x23 being like. I'd love s5 to open like this - Castle and Beckett in bed, waking up slowly, thinking about what happened before etc. Rated T for implied sex/nudity and near-deaths ie they're naked in bed and Beckett remembers almost falling to her death :P lol . PLEASE review.

Oops by kimmiesjoy reviews
He stands in stunned disbelief, his hand over his mouth as he stares at her shocked face. She sort of looks as stunned as he does as he watches her within the elevator, waiting for it to move. Because this gorgeous, frustrating, love of his life woman, she just...grinned and blurted it out.

Dotting the I's by plasticworld reviews
Since when is being sweet a bad thing? In the immediate aftermath of Always, both Castle and Beckett have some deep thinking and talking to do. Not as boring as it sounds, I promise! SPOILERS for 4x23, and considers Intervention and Sugarcoated Risks as cannon.
