Disclaimer: I don’t own anything. I wish I did…… but I don’t – it’s all ABC and Marlowe.
Setting: Few months after S3 finale. Background – Beckett has broken up with Josh but is not ‘with’ Castle (yet).
A few things before we get started : This is my first ever Castle fic - and first fic after a 3 year break. …….so please be gentle J And reviews are always welcome! The last I checked there were a few dozen fantastically written fics that start right after 3X 24. So knowing there was no way to top those, I decided to take a slightly different approach with this one. A word of warning this will be slightly more descriptive and less dialogue initially as I fill in the blanks for the post shooting months. The story starts around 5 months after the shooting. It will also be angsty in the beginning but will definitely be Caskett by the end. I will be honest I don’t exactly know where this is headed. The idea has been floating around in my head for sometime now and I had to put it down on paper…..or the computer in this caseJ. So without further ado – I give you my first ever Castle fic – If Only….
Author's Note : I know you are hating me for the small chapter and ending it here . The problem is the next chapter is going to be too big. I will try and break it up for smaller posts but this was dying to get out so I had to set it free:) I will try and post as much as possibe this weekend. Enjoy!
So what do you think so far? Should I continue? Do you wanna find out what is happening with Rick. Next chapter will be back in the present …..I think :):):)
I have the next few chaps mapped out but do let me know your thoughts. Of if you have any suggestions on what should happen next. Reviews feed the muse :):)
Author's Note : I apologize for the delay in posting. New job, overseas guests and twin toddlers to deal with :) Anyway so here is Chapter 4. This chapter starts off with Rick's POV and fills in the gaps in what has been going on inside the hostage situation. I had initially planned on only focusing on the KB and RC emotions with the 'case' remaining in the background. But as I started writing it I realized I wanted to get into the actual hostage situation a little more - and a story began to take shape in my mind. I hope you like where I am going with this. So here it is - Ch4.

A/N : I struggled a little with this chapter trying to strike a balance between making it believable and not boring readers with too many details. I think I managed to do it, but haven’t had it beta-ed. So if you see any glaring discrepancies, please let me know. When I started writing this, I was making it up as I went but I now have a pretty good outline of where I will be taking the next few chapters. For one, it’s going to be Caskett all the way from here on out. It will get lighter as we go and will even go ‘M’ eventually. So bear with me dear readers - The painful part of the story is almost done.
Since I am writing this story separately from Rick and Kate’s POV with flashbacks to fill in the gaps in time, I am starting this chapter with a paragraph from an earlier chapter to put this one in context story-wise. Italicized part is from the earlier chapter.

I am on a roll! 2 Updates in one day. I am so proud of myself. Since the juices were flowing, I knocked this one out as well. It’s kind of small, but I think it’s a good place to end this chapter. As always reviews are welcome. Do let me know if anything seems out of place or OOC.

As a refresher, here is the last paragraph from the last chapter (italicized portion)
Sorry for the very short chapter. I think this is a good place to end this chapter. I will have a very slight time jump in the next one – which will be a longer chapter. But I didn't want to wait to finish that before posting this. So here it is - Chapter 7.
Usually disclaimers apply – I don't own anything.
A/N : Here its is Chapter 8. Starts with an excerpt from the end of Chapter 7. Italicized part is from the earlier chapter. Enjoy!
Usual disclaimers apply. I don't own anything. I am only borrowing the characters and having some fun with them.
A/N : So here it is – the chapter that will shed some light on Kate's actions. Hope I did her justice.
