Author has written 59 stories for Castle.

I loved Castle seasons 1-5, 6 -7 were OK, but I do not even acknowledge that a Season 8 existed, just my opinion and good for you if you enjoyed it.

NONE OF MY STORIES WILL GUARANTEE A CASKETT ENDING UNLESS IT IS SPECIFIED WHEN I FIRST PUBLISH IT.

NOTE: I've made a decision to delete ALL guest reviews after receiving the second idiot wishing COVID on me or my family. YOU MUST BE SIGNED IN TO REVIEW, I NO LONGER EVEN READ ANY WITHOUT AN ID. ALL REVIEWS WITH GUEST OR WITHOUT A WAY TO RESPOND ARE DELETED IMMEDIATELY. SORRY IT CAME TO THIS

Life Reassessment reviews
Authors Note: Another What If based on the episode, Cops and Robbers, except Rick is injured protecting Martha and Bank Teller Simone. It starts with Canon dialog, goes quickly completely AU. No dinner, no boasts of who saved who, and twists of fate in the Castle's lives. I don't own Castle; I use the characters for amusement purposes only, except the ones I create.

Belated Memories reviews
Authors Note: Another What If based on the episode, A Deadly Game (TY Cyotepup4 for the correction). Starts off with Canon dialog, quickly goes completely AU. No Gina in the Hamptons, just twists of fate in the Castle's lives.

A Matter of Inches reviews
Authors Note: From a prompt from Mbeckettcastle, I hope I do it proud for you. Rick did save Kate from the sniper, but that was just the start. As always, things never go smoothly for our duo, Details from Knockout altered to fit this fic, so this is TOTALLY AU, times and dates may have been changed to fit the storyline,

Time marched on, Alexis is now in Grad School, Martha has played her last performance when she passed quietly in her sleep. He talks to Kate, Gina, the boys, but NOTHING has restored him to his prior self before he was almost killed saving his Detective and True Love. TOTALLY AU

Unexpected Detour reviews
This is my AU version to a different outcome from the RISE episode in Canon. Kate left to deal with her demons, perhaps she wasn't the only one needing to come to terms with what life brought them all.

Two Moments Collide reviews
This is my AU version of events immediately following the interrogation of Bobby when Rick learns of Kate's lie. I hated the episode with Slaughter and was not so much a fan of the Limey. I think Rick was painted as a jilted Youth, rather than the mature man, who had survived infidelity, and differences with two wives, as well as desertion from Kyra.
