Author has written 22 stories for Castle.

Hi!

I'm a huge fan of TV shows and movies. At the moment, Castle is my main passion - some people might even call it obsession - but I also follow GA, Elementary, Revenge, OUAT, New Girl, Bones... you see my point? ;) And I'm not ashamed to admit that I enjoy reading fanfiction. A lot.

I'm not a writer or an artist, but sometimes I get an idea for a story or a fan video and it won't leave me alone until it's published. And it's really easy to plant an idea in my head, so if you have a prompt, you know what to do. :) Unfortunately, I work full time and am an athlete, so usually "real life" affects my publishing schedule.

I'm always on Twitter (@tuulip) and would like to get to know more people, especially in the Castle fandom, so feel free to follow and msg me.

I also have a Tumblr account (thetuulip), but lately I haven't had the time for it.

My fan videos can be found on YouTube, where my username is TheMasteroftheforest.

a small glimpse by faithsette reviews
'She's fairly certain she's no one's mother. Surely she'd remember that. How many glasses of wine did she have last night? She'd needed a drink after their case, after the non-hickeys on both her and Castle's necks caused quite the commotion in the bullpen. One? Two maybe? Three tops.' Time travel fill. Two shot.
