The Reminder by Trinity Everett reviews
He's not wrong; he is leaving something of himself behind when he goes off to write a certain British Secret Agent, but it's neither his insistence upon the proper usage of irony, nor his constant complaints about 'you're' vs 'your' in internet debates that she'll have to remember him. Written for Castle Fanfic Monday.
