La Taqueria reviews
Castle and Beckett enjoy a nice lunch, and a few shots of tequila, during their Mexican vacation. By the time the meal is over, they're both eager to get back to their rented beach house. PWP with no spoilers. This is simply their own private fiesta, inspired by my incessant craving for good food and my love of C/B.

Written in the Scars reviews
This was inspired by the song "Just Give Me a Reason" by Pink/Nate Ruess. It takes place about a year after C/B started dating, but is not tied to the specifics of season five. In other words, it's a slight AU, forcing the ugly conversation they've needed to have for quite a while.

"She took a deep breath, willing herself to sound like she was in control of her own body. Like it wasn't about to abandon her head and run off in a bookstore-borne fantasy." Set in episode 2x05, during and after the Heat Wave launch party. This came about as I was busy appreciating how incredible both Castle and Beckett looked in that particular scene. M-rated one-shot!

Keeping Her Quiet reviews
"As much as I love our friends, please don't ever make us share a cabin with them again." Castle plans a group vacation with Kate, Ryan, Jenny, Esposito, and Lanie, but seems to forget that Kate can't be as uninhibited when they're confined to such a small space. In fact, she's awful at being quiet, but Castle is willing to help her try. PWP set almost any time in season 5.

Waiting Until After reviews
"Eyes wide, Kate stayed still, watching his back and praying to a long-forgotten deity that he would just keep going. That he would be merciful and overlook the cries that poured from her lips without invitation. But Castle had spent more than two years pointedly not ignoring her and she supposed it was too much to hope for now." One-shot set toward the end of Knockout (3x24).

Light as the Breeze reviews
"She'd done this to him, and he was tragically grateful." This is a one-shot, set anywhere toward the end of season 4. It was inspired by Billy Joel's rendition of Leonard Cohen's "Light as the Breeze," but you don't need to be familiar with the song to read the fic.

Sure, all she had done was open the suite door, to return to where she had left him on the sofa. But there was no doubt in her mind that a step into the hotel living room would have effectively pushed the domino that she had worked so hard to keep upright. Starts during 3x22 "To Love and Die in L.A."
