I blame uberniftacular
for this. Her works under this meme were brought up in her recent Icon Meme
, and I was inspired.
(Oh, and if you think this is at all interesting, you should check out her show Underground
. I would totally watch the shit out of that...)
Readers of my Life
AU fics for Castle
may recognize Reggie Simpson and Dr. Janet Waters, as they were both minor OCs in those stories. Because this version of Slice of Life
builds off of Reggie's role in that, some characters reflect Castle
characters somewhat in their roles, but I promise they are not the same people.
Though, it's entirely cyren_2132
's fault if I wind up attempting to write this as a novel for NaNo. -.-

Like most people, Homicide Detective Gordon Atwood (Phifer) has lived most of his life blissfully unaware of the daily lives of post-vitals—an undead minority that has existed on the fringes of society since the early '60s. Reggie Simpson (Heyerdahl) is a post-vital counselor—his job is to guide newly-infected post-vitals, helping them cope with the strange hardships of their new lives. When one of Reggie's patients is accused of murder, Reggie poses as the man's lawyer. After providing information on post-vitals clearing his patient of the crime, Reggie finds himself attached to the investigation as Atwood and his partner, Alex Keyes (Maher), investigate a gang extorting post-vitals. Reggie is later tapped by Atwood to consult on other cases involving post-vitals.( Or: Gordon is a cop, Reggie is a zombie, together they fight crime. )
