You know SB, I gotta say I really like the way you take Castle cannon and almost, but not quite keep coloring within the lines. Like bringing in characters from the show, that's the color within the lines part, but then you make your own story lines that make a very intersting tapestry. Kinda like mixing metaphors!
I am happy that Rick doesn't need to feel any more remorse than he already does. It's already an almost crushing weight he has carried all these years, and now he has someone to help him with it.
When all is said and done, so far you've created not just a dramatic story, not just an action story, but also a very romantic story as well.
To paraphrase my friend stuck in the mountains of Arkansas...RG likey! ;D

Most of the AU fics I have read keep Rick the same and change Beckett's life around. As I find it easier to write Rick (we are the same age and we both live in New York State, I decided to keep Kate and completely change Rick's life around. I have a thing for patterns and weaving threads. How every life effects all of the lives around them.
I decided to tug on a thread and reveal how the other threads respond to the empty space.
