Pairing: Kate Beckett/Richard Castle
Special Rec #: 4-9/?
Fic Title: To Have and to Hold
Why This Must Be Read: I'm not gonna lie, I'm a sucker for angst. I love it, love it, love it. Those fics that when you are reading them they are ripping your heart out? I love them. But if I'm being honest, I like "happy" endings, not uterly and complety fluffy but happy. Now, this one might not be one of those, but it's angsty enough to make you want to punch something. Miscomunication and assumptions at its best.
Fic Title: Your Last Day
Why This Must Be Read #: What does Groundhog Day have in common with X-files's Monday? If you guessed "time loop" then you are correct. That is what this fic is about; Kate faces the same day over and over again. What happens in those same days? All kind of things, but the Drama tag is there for a reason, you have been warned.
Unfortunately, this one is still a work in progress but I firmly believe that the author will finish it, even if sometimes it seems like she won't because of the hiatus between chapters.
As you might have notice, those two fics are from the same person, there's gotta be a reason, right? Well, I really like her writting and I would rec every other fic she's written in the fandom but let's just leave it at this and you can decide if you want to go ahead and read more or not.
Fic Title: Busted
Rating/Warning(s): PG-15, maybe?
WIP?: Yes and No, she could leave it at this and it wouldn't make a difference, but she could keep adding more to it, too
Why This Must Be Read #: Well, if you are a Castle fan, you've probably read everything there is to read by Shimmeryshine but you can't make a Castle Rec post and not add her, you just can't. Why did I choose this story? It just seemed apropiate, kate and Castle being Busted by the different people in their lives.
Fic Title: The Beginning After the End
Rating/Warning(s): PG-15, maybe?
Why This Must Be Read #: Castle, Beckett, Alexis and Martha in a zombie invaded World.
When you are the kind of person who used to say "I don't like AUs, they are not for me" and one single fic makes you reconsider your position, then that fic surely deserves to be recced. I don't know what more to say about this fic, it made me change my mind completely and start giving opportunities to fics that otherwise I would have never even consider reading.
Fic Title: Whatever We Lose
Why This Must Be Read #: Castle and Beckett on the run at it best. The author really captures the feeling of what beeing on the run must be like. What wanting to protect someone at any cost must be like, what knowing that you are putting someone you love at risk just by letting them be near you must be like. Seriously, the author did an amazing job with this piece and I think you should all go read it just about know.
I love everything written by these authors so maybe, it you want to read quality fic, you should go read everything they have ever written. Also, you might want to check out: airbefore, Softer, FatherVengeance, missymeggins, hondagirll, veils
Fic Title: Metamorphoses
Genre: Crossover, Romance, Angst
Why This Must Be Read: I had these recs all ready to go and then remembered that there's one fic I read quite a long time ago (2 years!) and really liked. It's a crossover with Dollhouse and not really what I thought I would have liked at the time but it was one of those surprises, you know? It might be a little bit dated by now, but I think you might still enjoy it!
