Title: Fools Rush In
Series: Quis Custodiet
Fandom: Castle, Supernatural (no canon knowledge necessary).
Genre: Angst, Mystery, Supernatural
Rating: PG-13
Warnings: Cliffhanger.
Details: Slash, genre!crack, crossover, case!fic, AU, blasphemy, mythology abuse, spoilers.
Characters/Pairings: Castle―pre-Kevin Ryan/Javier Esposito, mentions of Kevin/Jenny and Javier/Lanie. Kate Beckett, Richard Castle. Supernatural―Bobby Singer, Claire Novak, Amelia Novak, mentions of others.
Wordcount: 10,532
Summary: When Javier Esposito went missing and the body of an unidentified woman was found in his apartment, Detective Kevin Ryan refused to believe the worst of his partner. Now, with the case threatening to go cold, he has embarked on his own investigation, determined to uncover the truth.
Notes: Early season 4 for Castle, and AU for season 6 of Supernatural, so spoilers up to there. Part of the "Quis Custodiet" AU crossover 'verse. Takes place a couple months after "'Aloha' Doesn't Mean 'Goodbye'" (SupernaturalxHawaii Five-0), but stands alone. In fact, I think this story is much better if read first.
Written for the July Ficathon on [livejournal.com profile] ryanandesposito.

Chapter One - Chapter Two - Chapter Three - Chapter Four - Epilogue

Title: A Proliferation of Hearts
Series: Life
Fandoms: Castle
Rating: PG-13
Genre: Romance, Fluff, Angst, Humor.
Warnings: Slash, AU, genre!crack, zombies, established relationship, cheesiness, fluff, mild squick, unbetad.
Characters/Pairings: Javier Esposito/Kevin Ryan.
Wordcount: 1,879
Summary: Which concerns dubious holiday purchases, Javier being uncharacteristically sentimental, Kevin being characteristically demented, and the probability of them actually waiting for dessert approaches zero.
Details: Written for [livejournal.com profile] ryanandesposito's Valentine's Day Mini Ficathon. A little late.
This probably reads very strangely to anyone who hasn't read my Life series, but all you need know is that Javier is just a tiny bit...undead.
I know I said a V-Day fic for Life would wind up too cheesy, but— Um, no, actually I was right. It's way cheesy. I just did it anyway.

To be quite honest, the thing which had surprised Javier the most was that it was even possible for him to find the holiday any more offensive than he already had. )

Title: Of Mice and Men
Fandoms: Castle, Fables
Rating: PG-13
Genre: Angst, Fantasy, Humor, Romance
Details: Slash, genre!crack, AU, crack, unsolicited crossover, fairy tales, talking animals, author insanity, shades of "omfg what did I just write?", unbetad.
Characters/Pairings: Castle—Javier Esposito/Kevin Ryan, Kate Beckett. Fables—Bigby Wolf, Frau Totenkinder, Reynard, Rose Red, Bagheera, others. OCs.
Wordcount: 30,178
Summary: In which a city mouse visits the country, which predictably leads to trouble and (in no particular order) revelations, relations and reciprocation; a funeral and a shotgun wedding; and Javier almost gets eaten by a panther.
Notes: A crossover with the comic Fables. This was done for [livejournal.com profile] adja999 for [livejournal.com profile] ryanandesposito's Secret Santa Fic Exchange. I apologize for crossing with a fandom you probably don't even read, but this was honestly the only thing my muse wanted to run with.
Fortunately, Fables draws its characters from fairy tales and similar stories, so they should at least be familiar in that context. On the off chance anyone happens to be familiar with Fables, this takes place before (i.e. blatantly ignores) the "Dark Ages" arc.

Prologue: Once Upon a Time...
(...which introduces characters we don't know, characters we only think we know, and characters we do know whom we may not recognize.)
Chapter One: Curiouser and Curiouser
(In which Javier experiences guilt, denial and car trouble, and a black panther is poorly substituted for a white rabbit.)
Chapter Two: Fish, Ponds, and Things of That Sort
(Which concerns a long-overdue reunion where awkwardness is mostly a matter of scale.)
Chapter Three: The Sky Is Falling
(In which everyone does their best, but nothing makes sense and there really isn't any time for proper explanations.)
Chapter Four: A Marriage of Inconvenience
(In which further questions are raised, most of which are not answered, but even then Javier is quick to sense when things start going rapidly downhill...)
Chapter Five: Small Talk
(Which contains shoe dropping of all sizes, and related puns become completely unavoidable.)
Chapter Six: Relatively Relative
(In which proper introductions take place, and it's all painfully civil—though just as painfully embarrassing.)
Chapter Seven: Hare Trigger
(In which a second kiss proves even more disarming than the first, magic animals discuss gay marriage, and Kevin is given some heavy food for thought.)
Chapter Eight: Trial or Error?
(In which a third kiss decides whether or not a fourth will seal the deal.)
Chapter Nine: Holy Matri-moley
(In which Javier's life flashes before his eyes...which, given the existence of talking panthers is probably long overdue.)
Epilogue: ...Happily Ever After?
(In which matters may not be resolved as easily as anyone believes...)

Title: Trick or Treat
Fandoms: Castle
Rating: PG-13
Genre: Horror, Fluff (do those two go together? Apparently, if you're me.)
Details: Pre-slash, genre!crack, horror elements (which are for once totally not squicky), adorability, Roachletts.
Wordcount:  5,508
Characters/Pairings: Castle―Javier Esposito/Kevin Ryan.
Summary: "Is someone...singing?"
Notes: Written for the Halloween Anon-athon at [livejournal.com profile] ryanandesposito. Though, honestly, this fic probably couldn't have been less anonymous if I tried. Javi's POV? Check. Geek references? Check. Supernatural elements and   internal repetition? Check and check. This fic was heavily influenced by Stephen King's IT.
All it had taken was a weakening at a single point. After that, it all came down easily. )

(Fic) Deja Vu

Friday, 7 October 2011 07:15 pm
black_sluggard: (ryan and esposito)
Title: Deja Vu
Series: A Once and Future Thing
Fandoms: Castle, Firefly
Rating: PG
Genre: Romance, Sci-fi
Warnings: Character death, spoilers for Serenity.
Details: Slash, het, genre!crack, crossover, unbetad.
Wordcount: 1,750
Characters/Pairings: Castle—Ryan/Esposito, implied Castle/Beckett. Firefly—Zoe/Wash, Mal/Inara, Kaylee, Inara, Book.
Summary: From the moment they first met there was something about their new pilot had made Zoe uneasy. Something familiar that she hadn't quite been able to put her finger on.
Details: To be quite honest, I'm not even sure if this counts as a Castle fic, even though it was written as one. This exists somewhere in that grey area between "fusion" and "crossover". Inspired by a serendipitous occurrence on the [livejournal.com profile] ryanandesposito Anon-athon where one of the anon's accidentally had Esposito echoing Zoe's first impression of Wash, regarding his first impression of Ryan. I've thought before that the couples were very similar, so this idea just happened naturally from that...
Interestingly enough, rereading some older fics a few weeks later, I realized that [livejournal.com profile] pure_mornings also wrote a fic that put the same dialogue in Javier's mouth. Go figure.

"Just somethin' about him bothers me." )

He couldn't just leave it sitting there. )

Title: Lessons in Each Other
Fandom: Castle
Genre: Romance, fluff.
Rating: PG
Warnings: Slash.
Characters/pairings: Javier Esposito/Kevin Ryan.
Wordcount: 485
Details: De-anonymizing and touching up this ficlet written for the Anonymous Ficlet- and Drabble-athon over on [livejournal.com profile] ryanandesposito. This was already partially written, originally intended to be a companion fic to Roach Motel, but I never finished it before now.

"Seriously, how did I not know how weird you were until we started sleeping together?" )

(Ficlet) 12x13

Friday, 7 October 2011 06:49 pm
black_sluggard: (ryan and esposito)

Title: 12 x 13
Fandom: Castle, Warehouse 13
Rating:  PG
Genre:   Sci-Fi, Romance, Humor
Characters/Pairing: Castle—Kevin Ryan, Kevin/Jenny, Kevin/Javier Warehouse 13—Claudia.
Warnings:  Slash, crossover, genre!crack.
Word Count:  396
Summary:  A crossover with Warehouse 13.

Details: Written for the Anonymous Ficlet- and Drabble-athon over on [livejournal.com profile] ryanandesposito. I don't actually even watch Warehouse 13, so Claudia might be a little out of character. But my roomate watches religiously (and has a huge crush on her), and somehow this idea popped up.

"I'm really sorry about how things turned out with your fiance and everything." )

(Fic) One Giant Leap

Wednesday, 27 July 2011 07:19 pm
black_sluggard: (Zeitgeist)
Title: One Giant Leap
Series: Zeitgeist
Fandoms: Castle, Heroes and NCIS.  Others hinted.
Rating: PG
Genre: Sci-fi, Angst
Warnings: Genre!crack, time travel, pre-slash (or slash, 'cause, you know, time-travel), crossover, AU, future!fic.
Wordcount: 8,269 words of naked insanity.
Characters/Pairings: Castle—Javier Esposito/Kevin Ryan, mention of others.
Summary: "I know this is crazy, but it's real. When it's over, go ahead and believe it was all a dream. You'll know better soon enough. I can't give you much without risking events still ahead of you. You've been pulled into the future. Your future. My present."
Details:  Written for [livejournal.com profile] ryanandesposito's July ficathon.  I'm fudging the timeline for both shows to make this work. Takes place after "Last Call" but before "Nikki Heat" for Castle, and before "Brave New World" for Heroes. More or less... This is actually prologue for a larger fic, a very bizarre multi-crossover series I've been constructing. It mostly foreshadows the general shape of where it's universe would be headed.

Suddenly all the fake vampires, psychics, alien abductions, and curses felt like some sort of twisted dress rehearsal. )

Title:  Roach Motel:  A Postmodern Tale of Slashy Goodness
Fandom: Castle
Genre: Romance, Angst
Rating/Warnings: T/PG-13 (possibly R-level swearing), slash
Characters/pairings: Ryan/Esposito, Raley/Ochoa, Castle, Beckett, Lanie Parish, Nikki Heat.
Summary: Heat Wave has been a big success. However, fan interpretation of two of the book's minor characters leaves Detectives Ryan and Esposito both a little concerned... (Two slash fics for the price of one! Written for the [info]ryanandesposito ficathon.)
Spoilers: Major for Den of Thieves, possible minor spoilers for seasons 1 and 2 up to and including Overkill.
Author's Note: I know I'm not the only one to ever have come up with this idea, and I've read a few well written stories based on the same premise. But I've had this idea in my head since Heat Wave came out, and I just had to do it my way. This was originally meant to be an angst fic during the Roach segments only, keeping the Ryan/Esposito relationship relatively light. Didn't happen. Hope it's still good.  It's my first slash fic, and my first completed multichapter fic.  Booyah.

Thanks to betas [info]foolish_m0rtal and [info]justaotherwitch, and my sister [info]bad_catty , who doesn't watch the show but ships Ryan/Esposito anyway.

Dedicated to my grandmother, with whom I watch Castle religiously every week. And who will, hopefully, never find out how I choose to express my enjoyment of the show. :)

Prologue (Which, Being About a Prologue, Is Somewhat Recursive)
Chapter One (In Which Life Begins to Imitate Art)
Chapter Two (Which Is Also Technically "Chapter One")
Chapter Three (In Which Art Painfully Imitates Life)
Chapter Four (Which Begins With Angst, And Ends With an Incredibly Lazy Pun)
Chapter Five (In Which Attempts at Recrimination Turn Into Self-Incrimination)
Chapter Six (In a Backward Analogy, Things Left to Steep Are Heated to a Boil)
Chapter Seven (In Which Esposito Finally Cuts to the Chase)
