Castle, 13 Castle/Beckett recs


Fandom Category: Castle
Pairing: Kate Beckett/Richard Castle
Fic Title: A Blank Page is just History Erased
Author: missymeggins 
Link: http://missymeggins.livejournal.com/146000.html
Rating/Warning(s): PG, post S2 finale/potential S3 opener.
Genre: Angst/Romance
WIP?: No.

Why This Must Be Read: I love how the author didn't put Castle as the guilty one over what happened in the season finale as most of the other post S2 fics I've read have. She actually has him coming back and it's not just him the one having to get on Beckett's good side again. She hurt him as much as he hurt her and he kind of resent her, tries to not get too close to her so he doesn't get hurt again. I love how this fic picks two characters that don't really know where they stand, how they fit in the other person's life and builds on from there beautifully.

Fic Title: A Burden Shared
Author: handful_of_sky 
Link: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/6726677/1/
Rating/Warning(s): T (Character Death)
Genre: Angst/Romance
WIP?: No.

Why This Must Be Read: I'm not that much of a fan of fics where a major character dies but I gave this a chance because sometimes, when the author is THAT great, you just have to drawn your complains in whatever you have near, suck it up, and read it. I'm so glad I did it because this fic is THAT good. It deals with Martha's death and how Castle takes it. All this from Beckett POV.

Fic Title: Always
Author: IMW
Link: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/6774739/1/
Rating/Warning(s): NC-17.
Genre: Angst/Romance
WIP?: No.

Why This Must Be Read: Great Beckett characterization. I can really see them kissing and then have her taking two step back even though she openly admits that there's something between them. And I'm completely in love with the scene between the "Castles", Martha's experienced understanding and the "red colored glasses" way Alexis sees the situation her father is in. And then there's, of course, the way Beckett apologizes, espectacular, really, really cute.

Fic Title: A Simple Hypothetical
Author: veils 
Link: http://community.livejournal.com/crookedhalt/8716.html
Rating/Warning(s): Between PG-13 and R
Genre: Romance/Angst
WIP?: No.

Why This Must Be Read: The teasing. I love how the author plays with the characters in the same way they play between them on the show itself. This is really funny, and sexy, and beautifully written and every other compliment you can think of. There's a moment towards the end when it kind of breaks your heart a little but fear not, because it glues it back together perfectly.

Rating/Warning(s): R
Genre: Romance
WIP?: No.

Why This Must Be Read: Leaving aside the fact the I love every Caskett fic this girl has written, this fic it's amazing. It's from Castle POV, about how he tries to descifer her, tries to understand her. Besides it has a perfect comeback to the whole backing out after making out “If this is one of those I-don’t-want-to-ruin-what-we-have things, you might as well save it because I don’t believe in them.” And, of course, a good Caskett banter doesn't hurt either...

Fic Title: Big Girls Don't Cry
Author: xdawnfirex 
Link: http://xdawnfirex-fic.livejournal.com/85319.html
Rating/Warning(s): PG-13
Genre: Angst/Romance
WIP?: No.

Why This Must Be Read: One of the best post S2 finale fics I've read. And yes, this one is one of those where the author makes it so Castle seems the "bad one" for leaving, where he's the one having to ask for forgiveness but the author does it so beautifully that even to those who don't agree with that turns of events, this is a fantastic fic.

Fic Title: Cronw and Anchor
Author: floatingamoeba 
Link: Part 1 and Part 2
Rating/Warning(s): PG
Genre: Romance/Angst
WIP?: No.

Why This Must Be Read: I love how this fic deals with the aftermath of the 3xk from both of their POV. Love how it shows how scared they were in that moment, how neither of them wants to let go just yet even though they know they should because there's other people to think about. And I'm so NOT okay with cheating but I could understand why they just can let go after what they have just been through.

Fic Title: Ends Can Surprise You
Author: missymeggins 
Link: http://missymeggins.livejournal.com/174184.html#cutid1
Rating/Warning(s): PG
Genre: Romance
WIP?: No.

Why This Must Be Read: Ever wondered what would make Castle stop working with Beckett? Then reads this, it's SERIOUSLY good. And it makes sense. The feelings, the writting, the characterization... Everything about this fic is downright perfect.

Fic Title: Faintest of Sparks
Author: Scarlet Royal
Link: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/6801938/1/
Rating/Warning(s): T
Genre: Angst/Romance
WIP?: No.

Why This Must Be Read: To me, lately, it's all been about Castle, the character, I mean. It's been difficult watching him know that he's in love with Beckett and not being able to do anything about it and so this fic for people like me (wondering what he's thinking in each situation) is perfect. It deals with the aftermath of Countdown in a really beautiful way and the bits with the memories from his childhood is really nicely done, fit's perfectly and adds something great to the end result.

Fic Title: Mild Irritation
Author: greyslostwho 
Link: http://greyslostwho.livejournal.com/37409.html
Rating/Warning(s): PG, baby!fic.
Genre: Romance
WIP?: No.

Why This Must Be Read: Even if baby fics are not your thing, I REALLY, SERIOUSLY think that should give this one a chance. It's a great view of their relationship over time and how it has changed (not only the relationship, but herself and how she sees and feels about Castle) along the way.

Fic Title: Thaw
Author: handful_of_sky 
Link: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/6783171/1/Thaw
Rating/Warning(s): T
Genre: Romance
WIP?: No.

Why This Must Be Read: This is such an amazing fic, seriously. Remember that episode in which Castle and Beckett get stuck on a freezer? (Dumb questios, of course you'd remember) Well in this one, they also get stuck on a freezer but it plays out completely different, and in my opinion a whole way better. At least they find a way to get warmy. Their banter during the whole "stuck" scene is priceless.

Fic Title: When a crime breaks out all the cute girls shout, “Get the good looking guy".
Author: hondagirll 
Link: http://hondagirll.livejournal.com/99964.html
Rating/Warning(s): PG
Genre: Romance
WIP?: No.

Why This Must Be Read: I always find AU a little difficult to love because it is just that little bit harder to write, to get right. I'm not oppossed to AUs, but I need the characters to still be THEM. OOC in a canon fic is awfull, but in an AU it's a total deal breaker for me because you might as well just change the names of the characters and be reading some other thing completely... But this fic is ABSOLUTELY amazing in that way. Beckett is the writer and Castle the cop but they are still totally them. Beckett is all no no-sense kinda girl and he's his irritable-funny self. Totally worth reading!

Fic Title: Work on that Alibi of Yours
Author: veils 
Link: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/6790028/3/work_on_that_alibi_of_yours
Rating/Warning(s): T
Genre: Romance/Angst
WIP?: No.

Why This Must Be Read: Going through what they went through during Setup and Countdwon ins't easy. It's a whirlwind of feelings and emotions that leaves you exhausted and in need of someone who understand. That's what this fic deas with. There's bantering, and convesations (real, about important things conversations) and sleepovers. In one word; perfect.



Once you have read all of these amazing fics could you PLEASE come here and vote in the poll? I won 10,000 words worth of podfic in a help_japan  auction and I want to get one or two of these fics podficced but I just can't decided which ones and I really want your opinion. Please?

(Mods if this last paragraphs is against the rules, tell me and I'll edit the post to leave only the recs)
