Another Auld Lang Syne
by GeekMom reviews
A/U For years, he thought she was dead. Murdered - he had been a suspect. He loved her. He mourned her, but the problem was that that person didn't even exist. The Castle characters aren't mine, but I raise my glass in Auld Lang Syne to Marlowe and company.

by JerichoSteele reviews
Since I thought Kate's "I want you" wasn't enough, this is my little spin on what should have happened on the night of Alexis' graduation. Had a recalibration to my cranial orb and decided that there was too much to this story to let it go so easily. WIP.

Risking It All
by Liv Wilder reviews
Castle steals a police horse. The arresting officer is none other than Kate Beckett. "You got yourself up there and now you're going to get back down. I want you to concentrate. Carefully lift your leg over its flank, then slide to the ground. Preferably without breaking anything. Or losing that blanket. No one wants to see your bare ass swaying in the moonlight. Least of all me."

by honeyandvodka reviews
A new series about a certain British secret agent? Even if it meant no more Nikki Heat, the offer was a dream come true. A change of scenery and a fresh challenge were exactly what he needed. So why did Castle feel like instead of starting a new story, he was closing a book mid-chapter? AU from 'When the Bough Breaks'.
