Dreams Beneath the Surface
by drdit92 reviews
Now complete. Thanks everyone! This is my 2013/14 Winter Ficathon Entry. Cover Art courtesy of the great dtrekker. Prompt 1: "She awoke with a start. The bed beside her was cold, the room still dark save for the soft glow of the light outside filtering in through the window as it reflected off of the steadily falling snow." A/U sometime in season 6.

What if Nathan Drake and Rick Castle were not only acquainted, but connected? Very little plot or other substance - just a sketch inspired by the Uncharted fan film released last week.

Just a dream reviews
For the prompt: The end of "Always" was just a dream. No dialogue, no action, just a chunk of Castle's thoughts upon awakening the morning after Alexis' graduation. Hope it suits.

Anything could happen reviews
Goes off canon after 8x02. When Rick lands in the hospital after a traffic accident, he reminds Kate that anything can happen. "The best way to keep me safe, Kate, is to keep me close. Back to back, watching each other's six." Even while they're watching, they're racing to solve the puzzle of LokSat and Rick's lost summer.

A fistful of Castles reviews
Post-"Crossfire". Castle and Beckett are rushed to the hospital, and Beckett is trying to get news of Castle's condition as she fades in and out of consciousness. In between moments of lucidity, she dreams...and so does Castle. My mini-ficathon entry for the 2016 Summer Castle Ficathon. Complete!

Her story reviews
AU where Beckett is shot by Tisdale in the first episode, as prompted on twitter. Castle blames himself for her getting shot because he was trying to play the hero. Fair warning: no fluff here, at all, and no resolution either.

Fancy meeting you here reviews
"He has some of his memories intact," Kate tells Lanie. "Alexis, Martha, the acting studio. Just - nothing to do with the Twelfth. Including me, you, Kevin, Javi...any of the cases we've worked." Castle reappears as depicted in "Driven", but he's missing a large chunk of his memory - the chunk that includes Kate.

Beckett and the Beast reviews
Richard Castle lives in a citadel far above Manhattan, doomed never to leave his loft until he writes the final chapter of his book. Even as he despairs of writing a suitable conclusion, a lady appears on the horizon who may be able to free him - if she doesn't sock him first. [My first attempt at a Castle AU, based on the Disney musical version of Beauty and the Beast.]

Yet another post-"The Limey" tale, a bit of silliness prompted by inkycoffee. "Kate takes Colin out for dinner after the case and they run into Castle and Jacinda. Bonus points if Jacinda and Colin end up together (they're both on the way to the airport, anyway)." Not canon compliant.

Timing is everything reviews
Prompted at castlefanficprompts for 8x12, "The Blame Game", thus spoilers: What if Kate were injured, or pregnant, during this episode? I went with both and made it as fluffy as possible when there's an emergency room involved.

The possibility of joy reviews
Richard Castle has become a recluse, living in his Hamptons house alone, writing, seeing no visitors except his family and friends. On the other side of the country, she wanders the beach and tells herself she's safe. She hates safe. (Fix-it for what the season 8 finale may bring.)

A bow drawn at a venture reviews
Speculation as to a possible ending for season 8. Kate Beckett prepares to embark on a quest to track down LokSat's mastermind once and for all. She won't be alone, but it won't be Rick by her side - it'll be a woman they both know and trust, even with their lives.

Not the end of the story reviews
In the face of his impending death, Castle tries to piece together the story of LokSat and prays that he gets a chance to tell it to someone - preferably Kate. One way that the LokSat investigation might play out, entirely in my own imagination. Spoilery for season 8.

Kate asks Rick to celebrate a special day with her; Rick doesn't think the day is special. Yet. No resolution is reached, but a step toward agreement is made. Set some time around 8x05; not canon compliant.

A place for our stuff reviews
Spoilers for season 8; started after the sneak peek for 8x05, but before I saw the episode. Castle can't bring himself to be present when Kate comes to "pick up the rest of her stuff", so he hides in his PI cave. Until he finds out she didn't take anything, and she wants to try to meet up.

They're miles apart, even when they're in the same room, and neither of them knows how it came to this - or how to come back together and heal. Only in sleep does Kate find the happiness she once knew with Rick - so deep in sleep she wants to stay.

Friends and family who happen to be members of the Avengers, the NYPD, and one novelist with an overactive imagination.
