Author has written 8 stories for Castle.

Hey there,

I write. Occasionally. And a lot of the time I stare at the screen in frustration and close Word without saving. And sometimes, just sometimes, I save it and some of it even ends up on this page.

You can also find me on tumblr under nameisariel dot tumblr dot com ;)

Disclaimer: I obviously don't own Once Upon A Time, or Castle, or any of their characters.


"A loved one?" "We shall see."

And Everything Nice by ColieMacKenzie reviews
There's something about sharing news like this with her father, something about the life-affirming reality after everything they've been through, after almost dying yet again, and making it against all odds...

Without End by bravevulnerability reviews

Hearts Scraped Raw by rewritetheending reviews
"Still, she's smiling, and it's the same gorgeous, open smile that he's seen more in the past several weeks than in their first few years of working together, stunning in its sincerity.

Breathing in the colors of your skin by kimmiesjoy reviews
He wakes to the sound of her voice again, twice in as many days and a lifetime hereafter that he's more than okay with. The light tippy-tappy movement of her fingers brush out over his cheeks and though he feigns sleeps just a little while longer he can't help the smile that creeps out across his face.

"I'm pregnant." It's a phrase that replayed in his head constantly since he first heard it. He felt his excitement rise again and could not suppress the giddiness that came along with it.
