Post 2x13 - Sucker Punch

Requiem for a Hit Man

Post 2x13 - Sucker Punch

How did Beckett get from crying over Coonan's dead body to smiling over take out food with Castle? A great look into Kate's head after the events of Sucker Punch.

Post-bomb explosion from Boom, written pre-ep. Castle is rushing to save Kate, this is how it should have happened.
The confusion of straight lines
missymeggins
Post 2x18 - Boom!

In Medias Res

Pre 2x24 - A Deadly Game

Pre-season 2 finale fic. Kate is with Demming and we see a wonderful glimpse into their world. Some interesting Castle insight at the end, thankfully he's almost an adult about it too.
A Very Long Summer
Gray Cardinal
Post 2x24 - A Deadly Game

Coda for the second-season finale. A satisfying glimpse into the heads of Beckett, Castle, Demming and Gina after that last, frustrating scene.

Treasure Hunt
Cartographical
Missing scene 3x03 - Under the Gun

Frustrated you didn't get to see that 'sweaty hug' Castle mentioned? This story rectifies that. And makes you wish we could have seen it play out this way on screen.
In quiet truth there is relief

Post 3x05 - Anatomy of a Murder

Castle follows Beckett out to dinner and the two finally have an honest conversation - surrounding the meaning of a prisonbreak.
Crown And Anchor
floatingamoeba
Post 3x06 - 3XK

What might have happened after that pool scene. This fic demonstrates just how much Castle and Beckett can say to one another without having to speak a word. Plus a bonus Martha appearance.
And I draw a line (to your heart today)

Another great post-episode fic. Beckett takes Castle home after the pool scene.

Tick Tick Tick
shimmeryshine

Kate returns from L.A. with a lot of thinking to do. An interesting examination of the Josh-Kate and Castle-Beckett relationships. (Set between 3x22 & 3x24.)
...and all the lights that lead us there are blinding

Castle from Knockdown to Knockout, slowly realising what 'always' really means. Absolutely beautiful.
Intermezzo

Missing scene 3x24 - Knockout

A moment between. A Knockout missing scene I really wish we could have seen on screen.
All Your Shadows Live
shimmeryshine
Missing scene 3x24 - Knockout

A wonderful fill-in-the-blanks piece set after the hangar scene but before the funeral. Beckett wants to forget and Castle is there to try and help.
Interstice

The day is done (but here comes the sun)

A look at the immediate aftermath of the shooting. A nice exploration of family and relationships.
Laid Bare
handful of sky

You wear nothing but yourself
anuna_81

Post 4x07 - Cops & Robbers

If she hadn't said yes, they wouldn't have kissed. Picks up immediately after Cops and Robbers.
Getting There
Cartographical
Pre 4x09 - Kill Shot

Written pre-ep. Life isn't so easy with a sniper around. Everything one could want and hope to get from Kill Shot is in this fic. It's poignant and incredibly satisfying.
Shoreline
fialka62
Pre 4x09 - Kill Shot

Written pre-ep. 'The boys try to stop him, telling him Beckett will never forgive him for seeing her like this.' If only the ep goes like this!
Vortex
Cartographical
Missing scene 4x09 - Kill Shot

Beckett isn't the only one who has trouble dealing with the trauma of the sniper shooting. A powerful companion piece to the episode as Castle struggles with Beckett and his own PTSD.

Pre 4x11 - Til Death Do Us Part

Hell of a Season

Post 4x11 - Til Death Do Us Part

During the wedding reception Castle and Beckett discuss their pick-up repertoires, along with some completely platonic roleplaying. Not. [M]

Another much needed missing scene from Linchpin.
