Characters/Pairings: Javier Esposito/Kevin Ryan, Richard Castle.
Wordcount: 782
Summary: Because in some way, it always has to be Castle's fault.
Details: Written for the St. Patrick's Day Mini-Thon on [livejournal.com profile] ryanandesposito I didn't mean for this to be more or less the same fic as "Stupid Questions" only without the werewolves, but it kind of turned out that way...

"You're a tease, Kev," Javier whispered coarsely, leaning in half an inch more, "A filthy goddamned tease." )

Title: The Scottish Play
Fandoms: Castle, Gargoyles
Rating: PG
Genre: Romance, Fantasy, Humor
Warnings: Het, genre!crack, AU, crack, crossover, unbetad.
Characters/Pairings: Castle—Martha Rodgers. Gargoyles—What, are you crazy? I'm not going to say it. ;)

Summary: An introspective piece on power and the potential abuses thereof. Oneshot.

That's actually what this was, the jotted down idea for a more in-depth story. I re-found it by accident, and reading it now I thought it could stand on its own with just a few tweaks, so here it is...

Monster was a word that got thrown around a lot. )

Oh, and like "Deja Vu" and "Women Scorned", the idea for this was actually poached out of someone else's conversation, so blame—er, credit to [livejournal.com profile] coffeebuddha and [livejournal.com profile] theslashbunny for putting it in my head.


Watching Javier drive away had left a cold, tight ache in his gut. It was more than just fear. More than just tension )

Warnings: Slash, AU, genre!crack, zombies, violent imagery, references to cannibalism, unbetad.
Characters/Pairings: Javier Esposito/Kevin Ryan

Details: Takes place in the same universe as "Quality of Life" (i.e. that strange AU where Javier is a zombie, and Montgomery is still alive).

He knew that during onset Javier had sometimes dreamed while he was still awake, but he hadn't realized that it still happened. )
