Castle and Beckett: Fifty Things
Fifty Things, number seven! Geez, I have no life if I'm this far along. Now, without further ado, Castle and Beckett!
Disclaimer: I don't own Castle, that right belongs to ABC and Andrew W. Marlowe.
#1 - Coffee
It's a familiar ritual that they've had forever. It's also an adorably obvious sign of affection.
#2 - Chair
Two of his favorite places in the world could be viewed from two very different thrones.
#3 - Muse
She never realized just how much the relationship meant to him.
#4 - Badge
It was truly her shield, protecting her from the world that had hurt her. But to him, it was just a bit of metal.
#5 - Fixture
He'd become the 12th's unofficial mascot or something.
#6 - Snicker
"Why the hell must she always be NAKED?" Beckett yelled, making more than one head whip around in surprise.
#7 - Greetings
He always had something witty to say when she called him.
#8 - Calender
The days had completely blurred together until she walked up to him three months after hell.
#9 - Wife
With all the advice, heartache, and laughs she gave him, she really was the closest he had to one.
#10 - Midnight
It was a dark and stormy night...when he heard a knock at his front door.
#11 - Initial
She knew the second he turned around that he was going to be trouble.
#12 - Fidget
Riding a desk made her an anal-retentive OCD mad woman.
#13 - Crash
It's rare that she is so physically dependent on him, but Castle doesn't complain or crow about it.
#14 - Honorable
He didn't tell her how he felt. He couldn't monopolize her happiness or bear her rejection.
#15 - Apples
That word got a lot of use with them.
#16 - Towel
His throat constricted as his eyes bugged out in shock. "Beckett? What the...?"
#17 - Natalie
Being completely copied from hair to habits was creepy. Being asked by said copy to sleep with Castle was beyond wrong.
#18 - Reconsider
Believing in magic was pointless...wasn't it?
#19 - Poker
With pride and gummy bears on the line, they squared off to settle the stalemate.
#20 - Plotlines
You had to admit, sometimes the writer really did come in handy. His mind could process more scenarios than most cops ever considered.
#21 - Mystery
He knew he'd never completely solve her. But that's what intrigued him.
#22 - Motivation
She knew exactly how to light a fire under his lazy butt.
#23 - Fight
The day after that, he stopped showing up.
#24 - Intervention
Lanie all but dragged her down to autopsy and shouted, "Girl, stop second-guessing yourself and go kiss that man senseless!"
#25 - Disappearance
The discovery made him vanish within himself, and Beckett was the only one who could talk him back.
#26 - Daughter
Alexis would worry about him, but she felt that she was leaving him in good hands.
#27 - Turnabout
Fair play is fair play.
#28 - Declaration
They were not expecting their super-serious Beckett to shout "Bam, said the lady!" and slap Castle a high five.
#29 - Snippets
They drop little hints about their pasts that only make them want to know more.
#30 - Johanna
She smiled when she heard her brunette daughter's laughter mingling with her husband's.
#31 - Searing
He couldn't get her out of his mind. She couldn't keep him out of her thoughts.
#32 - Pigtails
He couldn't help pulling at them. He had the irrational fear that if he didn't, he'd lose her.
#33 - Green
Jealousy did not suit either of them. And yet they continued to wear it out and about.
#34 - Impression
First thing every new person asks, without fail: "Are you two together?"
#35 - Wordsmith
Funny how when it came down to the wire, he couldn't say a damn thing to stop her.
#36 - 3XK
When the bodies started to drop, she made sure Castle was never out of her sight for a moment.
#37 - Ring
It hung from her neck like Marley's chains, its links forged not from mistakes, but regrets.
#38 - Child
She really found his immaturity kind of endearing. Annoying, but cute.
#39 - Intersection
Sometimes they almost met up, but some obstacle always had one veering away before arrival.
#40 - Crutch
She never admitted it, but his novels really kept her going through everything.
#41 - Magic
He didn't want ordinary, and he never got it with her.
#42 - Rise
Like a phoenix, he knew she'd emerge from the ashes in a vibrant display of fire.
#43 - Cuddle
Long days at the precinct sometimes demanded time on the couch.
#44 - Universe
He believed that it kept them together. She thought it had a twisted sense of humor.
#45 - Always
It's their own special, understated, completely unique way of saying everything that ever needs to be said.
#46 - Character
He didn't like playing favorites, but he'd always had a soft spot for Nikki that never completely faded.
#47 - Telepathy
It was a weird gift, and they used it far too much to be considered normal.
#48 - Serenity
She woke up content. Something that hadn't happened in many years.
#49 - Ghostwriter
For sh*ts and giggles, she opened the Word document on his laptop and started typing.
#50 - Partners
Castle and Beckett, Heat and Rook. It took a killer to bring them into being, and several more to forge an unbreakable bond.
So, what do you think? Hate it? Love it? Want one-shots?
