13 Silent and New "She's different than he expected she'd be here. Now, like this." Oneshot inspired by the deleted scene from Always. Their first night together, as seen from Rick's point of view. For some reason this didn't originally show up marked 'complete.' (Some of the fields didn't save. No idea why.) That's fixed now-it really is a oneshot.

21 Trust Me » A series of oneshots, each of which can stand alone, but that are connected by the common theme of trust. The first installment takes place toward the beginning of the S4-S5 interim. As for the rest, they take place sometime after Caskett becomes canon. This is not updated with any particular regularity, as it is not a continuous plot. It is marked as complete for the same reason.

66Suffice It to Say » Maybe the new captain has kicked him out of the precinct, and maybe Kate has kicked him out of her life, but he still can't leave without saying goodbye... Takes place during Rise. Originally a oneshot, but extended by popular demand! **Rating is now T due to possible triggers for PTSD, suicide, and etc.** Thanks for reading!

3 Never, Always She has never been easy to love... / Free-verse poetry about Kate told from Rick's POV. Various references to the show are made, so spoilers are technically in play for all episodes. It focuses in a general sense on established Caskett, though. It's not nearly as morose as my one-line sneak peek makes it sound. Give it a try-I promise you'll like it!

3 Blur A poem. It's tough to summarize, but it essentially talks about the evolution of Caskett. Vague spoilers in play for the whole show, I guess. But we're talking really, really vague. So vague that I hesitate to mention it. *Disclaimer: I do not own Castle, its characters, or any aspect of it. Not claiming. Just musing on their lives for a bit.

4 Ultimatum Pre-series. When the boys find out that Will and Kate are seeing each other, they decided to pay Agent Sorenson a visit and offer him a little brotherly advice about his relationship with her... Short, light-hearted drabble. Oneshot. / Disclaimer: I don't own Castle or these characters.

4 She's It The Homicide Division of the Twelfth Precinct of the NYPD is more than a collection of coworkers: it is without a doubt a family. And she is the one at the center, holding them all together... Ficlet. Musings on our favorite detective and her squad from the point of view of her captain. I know Gates POV may sound off-putting, but please give it a chance! I think you'll like it.

5 I Told You So On Kate and Rick's first night together, Kate has a very meaningful dream, and she tells Rick about it while they cuddle together. Post-Always. Very short and very fluffy oneshot.

6 During the Storm Prequel to 5x01- "After the Storm". "'Shh… shh…' I whisper, using the same soft tone I used to soothe Alexis with when she was a little girl. At the same time, I pick her up gently and move with her to the edge of the bed, cradling her in my lap." For Kate, what should have been a near-perfect night takes a turn for the worse. Thankfully, she has Castle there to care for her.

55Snow Day » No one likes having everyone side against them on principle. Sadly, that's exactly what happened to Maureen... But, just maybe, a new friend will take her side when the rest of the world refuses... Mojo. Mostly musicalverse. Conspiracy theory-esque because I'm kind of insane. *Trigger warnings: cutting, anorexia* *ABANDONED-I'm so sorry! I just lost all direction and motivation.*

4 Facades "I think she sometimes hates me simply because she knows that I broke her." ... Another Mojo oneshot. There is a side of Joanne seen only by Maureen... A pathetic attempt at something that might almost be verging on a very liberal interpretation of fluff. I don't know. Bad summary of a good story. Just read the thing...

5 Listen "I've learned to watch her a little more carefully. Slowly but surely, I've learned how Maureen talks to people." ... Mojo. Oneshot, but a sequel is possible. Rated T, but not terribly high. No more optimistic than anything else I write. XD Enjoy, and please R&R! **Trigger warning for cutting.** Sequel possible but by no means promised. Inspiration and suggestions needed!

5 Diary of Blood » Maureen's worst fear is about to come true. Joanne is about to discover her darkest secret. Will it be more than the lawyer can handle? ... Mojo three-shot. Rated T for self-harm. Sort of OOC for Maureen, but it kind of depends how you look at it. **Trigger warning for cutting.** Quite a bit darker than the average Mojo fic, but I hope you'll enjoy! Thank you, Jonathan Larson!

1 No More Excuses Mojo one-shot. (My first ever!) Immediately postRENT. Is the Maureen we think we know really... real? Could she be hiding something? And, of course, what was going through her mind when she was cheating on Joanne? ... As I said, this was my first Mojo, so please be gentle! I didn't really know what I was doing, but I thought this was fairly acceptable, so I posted it. Enjoy! R&R!
