caskett proposal

  • Beckett: How the hell could you do this?
  • Castle: Because I love you. But you already know that, don't you? You've known for about a year now.
  • Beckett: Are you kidding me? You are actually bringing this up right now? After you told me that you just betrayed me?
  • Castle: Listen, Kate....
  • Beckett: Listen to you? How am I even supposed to trust in anything that you say?
  • Castle: How are you... Because of everything that we've been through together! Four years, I've been right here. For years. Waiting for you to open your eyes and see that I'm right here! And I'm more than a partner. Every morning I bring you a cup of coffee, just so I can see a smile on your face. Because I think you are the most remarkable, maddening, challenging, frustrating, person I've ever met. And I love you Kate, and if that means anything to you, if you care about me at all, just don't do this.

What if people started naming their kids after ship names?

Because Alex, castlefanfics, asked for it, so here it is. Thank you, Alex, for everything you do for this fandom. This is now part 2/3. Sequel to my ’The Proposal’ based prompt fill. Part 1.

They don’t get the chance to talk right away. She ends up being dragged away by a few of her cousins who insist that, after that kiss, they need to have some girl talk, because her cousins don’t know that that kiss was their first. An amazing first kiss. The perfect first kiss.

He ends up being dragged away by her cousins’ husbands, pulling him towards the couch and popping a beer for him, which he accepts. They ask him a lot about Kate, how he got her to stop focussing solely on her job, how they got her to bring a guy home to the family.

So he tells them the truth, leaving out the fact that he and Kate aren’t actually together. He tells them that he walked into her precinct and started pulling on her pigtails, figuratively, of course. He tells them about the flirting, about the late nights at the precinct, about the secrets exchanged between them. He tells them about how she caught him off guard by inviting him, how he was taken so off guard by how happy she had been when he said yes. He tells them everything he can without revealing too much.

Across the room, Kate is sitting in the kitchen, on one of the barstools at the counter. Even from here, he can see the red tint to her cheeks, her flush making him wonder what exactly she and her cousins are talking about. He watches as her head dips, her shoulder-length hair hiding her face, and he smiles.

Watch on

I have not watched this since it first aired because the feels. Like I just couldn’t take it.  It’s too much.  Ahhh so good <3 

Everyone talks about how serious he was…and now that I’ve watched it again I think it’s partly because he’s not sure what she will say, and he knows this will make or break them and she could walk away forever.

omg it hurts. I NEED CASTLE SEASON 6 NOW!!!

The Beginning of Always

“He’s her everything, her one and done, her always. She’s his surprise, his everything, his always. Set about two years after the fourth season, six years into their partnership. Rick’s proposal."  

Updated The Beginning of Always last night, and thought I’d try making story/chapter update posts on tumblr.
