Author has written 29 stories for Castle, and Firefly.

I had 32 years of writer's block between about 1980 and 2012. I wrote letters, I wrote emails, the occasional poem, the occasional online rant or argument, 3 songs, & 3 short stories. But all the other fiction I had in my head just sat there because I was afraid to let it out. Then one day I heard Mal Reynolds' voice in my head, saying something I had never heard before. I started writing again, & I didn't want to stop. Now I write a little fic every day, even if it's just in my head, working out the details. But the more I write, the more the floodgates open. There have been SO many surprises. I don't really know where they come from.

As 'Richard Castle' said on 'his' web site - now deleted in ABC's infinite wisdom:

"I don’t believe in writer’s block. I believe in writer’s embarrassment. That’s when you’re so embarrassed by the horrendous drivel you’re writing that you can’t bear to see it on the page. After all, you can always write something. I’ve discovered that giving yourself permission to write poorly is the gateway to writing well. It may not be good, it may not make sense, but that’s okay. After enough pages of meaningless drivel, your brain will uncover something interesting, and before you know it, you’re off and writing again.

I’ve also discovered that writing about why you can’t write allows you to discover what’s holding you back. Once you know what’s holding you back, you can face the problem and solve it.

-Richard Castle"

Also, as Nathan Fillion says, "It costs nothing to say something kind. Even less to shut up altogether."
Thanks for reading, commenting, reviewing - even constructive criticism! It all helps.

I miss Castle and all its characters terribly and hope that, someday, everything will be smoothed over and there'll be a fabulous reunion miniseries or movie. And we will all pick it to tiny pieces and reassemble it again in a completely different way.

Until then, I remain ever your humble servant.

Sincerely,

CharacterDriven

Castle Fanfic - 47 Seconds, or Skipping past the angst reviews
A lot of wonderful, deep, poetic stuff has been written about this angst-filled episode. I've only seen 47 seconds twice simply because it hurts too much to watch... it's not fun for me. So, since I cannot possibly measure up to others' takes on one of the most soul-crushing moments in TV history, I'm taking a slightly different path.

Castle Fanfic: He Bought, She Bought reviews
A frustrated Beckett goes shopping, subconsciously selecting some rather elongated vegetables. A frustrated Castle also goes shopping, and everything he buys seems to be cream-filled. The farmer's market may never be the same. AU for S3:1.

47 - A Castle Fan Fiction reviews
47 is a somewhat mythic number in the Castle 'verse. My head is full of little questions about Castle, and sometimes little answers. Don't know whether I'll actually have 47 ideas but it's worth a try! It's turned into something of an emotional roller coaster. One per year of Castle's life. I promise not to kill him off at 47. I've amended his birthdate to April 1, 1971.

Castle Fanfic: Pre-Emptive Measures or, I Don't Like Mondays reviews
AU. Crackfic. Fluff? It's Monday night, and some people will go to extreme lengths for a guilty pleasure. Kate Beckett is one of those people. Started writing this at 9:30 p.m., finished at 3:18 a.m., thank you Daylight Savings Time. Just to fill a void or prove to myself I can still write. Desperation is a dreadful thing.

This was originally written as an M but I'm taking it to a T rating to comply with this website's guidelines. Also because I'm a puling coward. :-D

There's more than one kind of ring, more than one kind of magic, more than one way that two stories can become linked together. This is a slim link, but it's stainless steel, nonetheless. No breaking it.

Loin: after TickTickTick BOOM reviews
According to Luke Reichle, there's nothing as sexy as a woman in a man's shirt. I respectfully beg to differ. ;-) Loin is in homage to the wonderful NellieRae's series, "Purloin", which you really must read. I've sent this out to a few betas as a more adult (slightly kinky) version; this is T-rated. All Castle characters and brand names are fair use. I only own my own words.

Feeding The Birds reviews
This was actually written in 2013 between the moment they left us hanging at the swingset and the moment Kate accepted Rick's proposal. Due to technical difficulties & lack of nerve, I waited. Just throwing it up there now to tide us through. Note, it really is complete: the case is goofy, just a catalyst for what happens.

Chickens in Paradise: A Tribute to Surviving Paradise by dredit92 reviews
Really, you should read this first: /s/10355585/1/Surviving-Paradise I was inspired by dredit92's wonderful story, which out-jack-londons Jack London and really is wonderful. As that story has progressed, I've marveled at its twists, turns, character development & attention to detail & atmosphere. As for Chickens in Paradise, I own nothing except my own words

Beckett & Castle find mysterious old letters in a trunk... & a glimpse of true love from the past. This story pretty much wrote itself. I am humbly grateful for the many kind reviews.

Castle fanfic: The Condensed Version reviews
After writing about a tea party (of course gone horribly wrong) in Too Soon, I was so gratified to see this enchanting photo. So here's a little crack fic about Castle, Alexis, and an imaginary cup of tea. NOT a cute story. MilMar and ABC made it happen with an amazing cast & crew. I own nothing. One-shot. I MEAN IT.

Castle Fanfic: Full Moon in Manhattan, or, Kill Your Darlings reviews
How Castle wound up naked, on a stolen police horse. An experiment in tangent management, a piece of fluff to clean my brain, and now introducing Fred the Wonder Horse. Flight of fancy. Note: I've never ridden a horse naked. One-shot entry for Castle Summer Ficathon 2014. I own nothing but my own words. Thanks to Castle writers for the inspiration

Castle Fanfic: You Smell Like Cherries (or, The Stakeout) reviews
Beckett is hit by a nasty case of food poisoning during a stakeout (get it, stakeout?) for Vampire Weekend, which is one of my favorite Castle episodes. Pure fluff: the Anti-Angst. Scatological/ gallows humor, so if you think it might be in bad taste, you're probably right. Doesn't get gross, though. Plus character development because I needs it. ABC owns it. I parody it with love

The Widget - A Firefly Castle crossover (with a hint of Chuck) reviews
When asked "What would happen if Castle and Reynolds met?" Nathan said, "Mal would shoot him in the face." I respectfully disagree, and speaking of respectful disagreement, both shows are great. NO h8, ok? Marlowe & ABC own Castle. Whedon and Fox own Firefly. But, as Joss pointed out, the story's still happening. I love him for that. Note: happy to get constructive criticism.

The Carousel reviews
Sequel 2 Castle in the Sand. A woman without a muse struggles to express herself through texting. Rated M for a lot of things including metaphors. I for innuendo. T for Titillating. This is probably way too long. Welcome constructive criticism. I own neither Castle, nor any of its characters, nor Little Bo Peep, nor rights to any board game, fictional or not.

Sleeping with the Fishes reviews
Based on a prompt, "Sleep with whoever you want. The more the merrier!" Kate's line in Pandora: she's still with Josh, but jealous of Castle's ex-muse. He's already helped her escape a watery death at the bottom of the Hudson. Well-played, Kate! Characters & basic scenario belong to AW Marlowe & ABC. So does my gratitude. Thanks to Lou for the invaluable advice!

Stop and Stare reviews
If Kate was such a fangirl, why was she SO hostile toward Rick when she came to interview him at the book launch party? Maybe she had mixed feelings before he even turned around to talk to her. This is my 2nd posting on but I wrote the story in October 2013, based on a "song title" prompt. It was supposed to be 1000 words. I've added a little more depth since then.
