Cruel Summer reviews
If he wasn't going to be around, what did anything matter? Justice. Justice for the victim, justice for their families, justice and closure. Justice mattered: being the best cop she could be to deliver that justice. Whatever toll that took. Whatever price she paid. Post Castle leaving, s2. Summer Ficathon 2021

Cat Calling reviews
A return to the insane world of the Caskett Cats, in which Castle and Beckett's twins are now teenagers...and not precisely easy. As Jim Beckett would say, grandchildren are grandparents' revenge upon their own children - and that's doubly true for the Cats. Caskett Cats #12

Hunted Down reviews
"Hallowe'en was not a time for stupid masks, costumes, parties, fake fears, or candies. It was not even a time for the much older tradition of Guising, brought from Scotland hundreds of years ago, which seemed to have dissolved in the pathetic little trail of Trick or Treating. Hallowe'en was nothing but a bad joke..." CastleHalloweenBash2020

Start Me Up reviews
He'd been pretty close to celibate for months...which had left him here, a hundred miles and more north of the city, God alone knew where, on a bike he could just about ride with a temper he could just about control and absolutely no idea where to go or what to do next.

Picture Perfect reviews
Castle didn't think 'laughingstock' was what Beckett would be. More...um...pin-up. And he'd have a set of the pictures for his very own. If he couldn't have the real thing – and she was as unobtainable as ever, which was just not fair – then at least he'd have some really good pictures. Three shot.

Cooking was not Beckett's favourite pastime. Unfortunately, it was a bullpen tradition that each year everyone had to bring in home-made treats. She had subverted it every year. But this year, there was Castle, who could, famously, cook...

Choreographing Christmas reviews
Lanie does Christmas like it's going out of fashion (oh, if only!) and invariably, and as inevitably as death and taxes, hauls Beckett along behind her, kicking, screaming and threatening. Beckett does not do Christmas. Ever. She does not do festivity. Castle, on the other hand, does. But not quite like Lanie. Not at all like Lanie, in fact.

Bad Medicine reviews
"If he'd gone home when he'd really started to feel awful rather than sticking it out until everyone went home, and if he'd not gone in this morning when he felt like hell but wouldn't admit it – well, maybe Beckett wouldn't have been driving him to the doctor now."

Prove Me Wrong reviews
She's competitive. She might not call it that, but she is. Has to compete with him at absolutely everything. Sometimes she wins. Sometimes he does. Maybe it's time they both did.

Structural variations reviews
Until he'd met her, he'd never really considered the infinite possibilities and subtle modulations of women's underwear. Until he'd met her, he'd never properly appreciated lingerie at all. Two shot, fluff.

We can be who we are reviews

Naughty is Nice reviews
A companion piece to Naughty or Nice? which is probably best read first. Castle's point of view of the same events. Note the M-rating. Pure fluff, for Christmas.

Naughty or nice? reviews
Sometime in the next ten minutes she is going to kill Lanie, because she is currently perched on a bar stool in a Miss Santa costume. Unashamed Christmas fluff, with little plot and less excuse.

Skirting the edge reviews
Beckett never wears a skirt. Dresses, occasionally, but he's never seen her in a skirt. Spoilers for 7.06. Shameless fluff in three chapters.

Salient reviews
"He's beginning to think she remembers far more than she's saying. He's beginning to think that she's missing because she's at medical appointments: more than just physical therapy appointments. And now she's here, in his loft, for at least a week, and doped into a state where those walls she talked about seem to have fallen down." S4 AU, 1 month in. Property of ABC/Marlowe.

What's love got to do with it? reviews
A day spent in his company gives her a bad headache and an almost overwhelming desire to hit him. Or shoot him. But under it all she can feel the current tugging at her. Because he's sexy in the bad-boy way that's always turned her on. Season 1. In the beginning, Marlowe created Castle and Beckett. I own nothing.

I Hate You reviews
She doesn't like him. Not one tiny little bit. She hates him. She hates him every minute he turns those bedroom eyes on her and heats her blood and fries her nerves. Very early in Season 1. AU. Fill for the 2013 Winter Hiatus Kink Meme. No plot to speak of.

Petruchio reviews
AU. Season 3 post that kiss. No Josh. No Gina. He's tired of waiting for her to decide. He's going to decide for her. Very close to non-consent in places, so may have triggers. Please don't read if that upsets you. These characters belong to Andrew Marlowe. No infringement of copyright is intended.
