Day 24 - A crossover pairing fic.

Fandom Category: Castle/Sanctuary
Pairing: Martha Rodgers/James Watson
Fic Title: Everyone is slightly abnormal
Author: [livejournal.com profile] kaitlia777
Link: Part One | Part Two
Rating/Warning(s): R, language
Genre: Angst
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: It's hard for me to ship two people who have never met, but Martha/James just work. Really, when you think about it, it just fits, and it would explain a few things from the Castle verse. This fic is so well written, the characters are spot on, and once you start reading it, you just can't stop. And with this, I've officially recced the only two Martha/James fics out there. There should be more. ;)

Day 22 - A canon pairing fic.

Fandom Category: Castle
Pairing: Kate Beckett/Rick Castle
Fic Title: There your heart will be also
Author: [livejournal.com profile] airbefore & [livejournal.com profile] sparkles_mouse
Link: Here
Rating/Warning(s): PG
Genre: Romance
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: This fic is beautifully written, and I have to say that I love the idea of Castle leading Kate on a scavenger hunt. For this only, it's completely in-character (because Castle can do that of course). It's funny, it's romantic, and I have to warn you that you'll tissues at one point. I can really see something like this happening in the show. The link is to part one, but there are links to other parts at the bottom of each chapter. ;)

Pairing: Teresa Lisbon/Patrick Jane
Fic Title: Five Times Jane Watched Lisbon Die (And One Time He Didn't)
Author: [livejournal.com profile] lady_of_scarlet
Link: LJ / AO3
Rating/Warning(s): M (violence); character death (x5)
Genre: angst, friendship, bits and pieces of case!fic, UST, and (oddly enough, given the title) moments of complete fluff
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: Okay, usually I don't read character death fics; I'm in it for the happy endings. The promise of "one time he didn't", though, was enough to lure me in and so I gave it a shot, and yeah, this is a very well-written fic. It's going to tug at your heartstrings all over the place, but it's definitely worth it (just make sure you're in the right kind of mood, or have fluffy fic standing by as a remedy!). No real spoilers, IIRC. ~10K words.

Fandom Category: Warehouse 13
Pairing: Myka Bering/Pete Lattimer
Fic Title: Four Times Pete and Myka Lied, and One Time the Truth Came Out
Author: [livejournal.com profile] irony_rocks
Link: LJ / AO3
Rating/Warning(s): PG-13
Genre: friendship, UST, humour, some A/A/case!fic, romance
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: The characters' voices? Bang on. Seriously. You'll swear these scenes comes straight out of an episode, they're so accurate. Banter, artifacts, bonding, flirting... it's all here. (In the interests of fairness, I should point out that I betaed this one. But still, the quality stands on its own; give it a shot ASAP.) Low on spoilers and posted two years ago anyway, so. ~5K words.

two Castle (Beckett/Castle) and two Stargate: Atlantis (Elizabeth/John) Five Times recs under the cut! )

(Mods, I don't know if it's worth adding a Kate Beckett/Josh Davidson tag for a fic that shares its 'ship with Beckett/Castle?)

Pairing: Kate Beckett/Rick Castle
Fic Title: Blind Heat
Author: jane0904
Link: Here
Rating/Warning(s): PG, spoilers for 'Always'
Genre: Romance, Mystery
WIP?: Yes

Why This Must Be Read: I have to say that I don't read a lot of fics for Castle, because I'm pretty much satisfied with the show, but I love jane0904's summer hiatus fics. And this one is no exception. The characters are spot on, and even if it ends up being AU by the time the season 5 premiere airs, it's worth your while. Also, yes, this is a WIP, but it will be complete, you can be sure of that.

Fandom Category: Castle  
Pairing: Kate Beckett / Richard Castle
Fic Title: One Hundred Days of Summer
Author: chezchuckles
Rating/Warning(s): T
Genre: Romance
WIP?: Yes
Why This Must Be Read: So this story starts post-Always, and it's about how Castle and Beckett spend their summer. This story shows the beginnings of their relationship, and the issues that come up within it. The characters' 'voices' are perfect, and so is the plot. I am completely loving this story!!

Pairing: Kate Beckett/Richard Castle
Fic Title: When a crime breaks out all the cute girls shout, "Get the good looking guy"
Author: [livejournal.com profile] hondagirll
Link: http://hondagirll.livejournal.com/99964.html
Rating/Warning(s): not rated, but I'd put it at PG-13
Genre: AU, Romance
WIP?: no
Special Rec: 19 of 34

Why This Must Be Read: I just adore this AU story where the simple twist is that Beckett and Castle's professions are reversed: Kate Beckett is a focused, prickly writer of mystery novels and Richard Castle is a larger than life, swaggering, and slightly goofy cop. It's so, so well done and the switch works amazing well with their characters.

Author: bebitched
Link: http://www.fanfiction.net/u/1079031/bebitched
Rating: G - hard R
Genre: Angst, Romance, Humor, Drama, Horror, Tragedy
Why This Must Be Read: One of my absolute fav authors, especially for Lost fics. The fics are consistently compelling and incredibly well-characterized, with amazing imagery. Several of them are achingly raw, and everything is just so fantasically well written - these are fics are have to re-read every once in a while because they set the bar so high on quality. Love, love so much!

Fic Title: Heat Falls
Author: jane0409

Rating/Warning(s): PG
Genre: angst, drama, romance, suspense
WIP?: Nope

Why This Must Be Read: This fic has been written just after the season 3 finale, so this is AU now, but really, if the show had gone the way the author did, it would have been great. There's an appearance of an OC the author created for another fic, but really, just for the first couple of chapters, so you don't need to read the other fic to understand. There's also an appearance of Jordan Shaw, the reason why I read this fic in the first place (there's definitely a need for more Castle fics with Jordan). Really, this fic is great!

Fic Title: Stranger than Fiction
Author: [livejournal.com profile] lanna_kitty
Link: here
Rating/Warning(s): PG-13 (language and violence), spoilers for Castle up to Rise (4-01)
Genre: angst, romance
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: I've read a couple of Castle/Sanctuary crossover before this one, and all of these have one thing in common: Martha/James. And let me tell you that it just works. For this only, this fic is a gem. It's not a Castle in the Sanctuary world, or Sanctuary in the Castle world kind of crossover: the shows are perfect equals, exactly what everyone loves in a crossover. This fic is just awesome, perfect even. And if you're of fan of both shows, let me tell you, you won't be able to stop reading it once you've started.

Rating/Warning(s): PG
Genre: Romance, Friendship, Hurt/Comfort

Why This Must Be Read: I don't really have the words to describe the lovliness of this piece. Suffice it to say, this is one of the best Castle stories I've ever read.

Fandom Category: Castle
Pairing: Kate Beckett/Michael Royce
Fic Title: Adagio
Author: JillianCasey
Link: Here, at ff.net
Rating/Warning(s): T
Genre: Romance/Angst
WIP?: One-shot

Why This Must Be Read: JillianCasey is one of my favorite authors in the Castle fandom, and this particular story might be my favorite of all time. I am a total Caskett shipper all the way, but ever since "Under the Gun" I had the sneaking suspicion that Beckett and Royce were more than rookie cop/training officer to each other, and this fic gives their relationship and romance a voice. Besides that, "younger Beckett" is really true to character. It's part romance, part origin story, and I think there's a lot to enjoy in this fic, even for the die-hard Caskett shippers. :) Happy reading!

Author: [livejournal.com profile] jacyevans
Link: link!
Rating/Warning(s): R; future!fic, crossover
Genre: angst, romance, case!fic
WIP?: No
Why This Must Be Read: A thrilling tale of romance mixed with Supernatural case!fic, and even though Alexis is introduced to the world of hunters and monsters, she's entirely the Castle character we know and love. This this is the perfect mix of action, romance, and angst with a dash of sweetness.

Fandom Category: Supernatural/Castle

Author: [livejournal.com profile] jacyevans

Rating/Warning(s): PG-13; future!fic, crossover
Genre: lyrical, romance, angst
WIP?: No
Why This Must Be Read: A beautiful coda to the above novella that also adds the voices of Dean and Castiel to the mix. It's a hunting story at its heart but very much about Sam and Alexis' convoluted relationship.

Rating/Warning(s): G
Genre: Romance
WIP?: No
Special Rec: 8/31

Why This Must Be Read: This was the first Castle/Beckett fic I ever read that I knew I loved, and it stood out to me particularly for its characterization of Beckett. This is an AU post-episode for "Boom" which is one of my favorite episodes of the series by far. It mixes in some fun Castle family moments and great Beckett and Lanie friendship along with a very realistic take on a potential beginning for Castle and Beckett.
