Subject:TARDIS-Verse reading order
Event type:Sticky
Security:Public

I've had a number of folks ask about the order for the TARDIS*-verse stories. Here's show chronologica order at FF.net. The order in which I wrote them follows in parentheses, but were I you, I'd go with "show order." 



  1. TARDIS-time and relative dimension in space (written first) 

  2. Objects in Space (written ninth)

  3. Calculation (written third)

  4. Nighthawks (runs concurrent with Calculation; written fifth) 

  5. Until (written eighth)

  6. Unexpected Light (written fourth)

  7. Maybe I'll Miss You (written seventh) 

  8. Danger in Blue (written eleventh) 

  9. Joyously Home (written twentieth 

  10. Dawn Before the Rest of the World (written eighteenth) 

  11. Stop Making Sense (written fourteenth)

  12. Stupid Mouth Shut (written sixth)

  13. Circle 'Round the Sun  (written second)

  14. The Possibility of Possibility (written twelfth) 

  15. Memento Vivere (written tenth)

  16. For Now And Then (written thirteenth)

  17. Kith and Kin (written seventeenth)

  18. Picturesque and Mythical (written fifteenth)

  19. History, Moving Quickly (written sixteenth)

  20. Home to You (written nineteenth)

  21. Fugit Lux


*What is the TARDIS-verse, you ask? Despite the name, this is not a Dr. Who crossover, just borrowing the idea of being outside of regular time and space. Beginning with Killshot, it's a series of stories that are either explicitly episode associated (i.e., post-eps or missing scenes), or taking place between episodes. In these stories, Castle and Beckett use "Time Outs" as an opportunity to spend time together and progress in their relationship without the pressure of it "counting" in the daylight. They're very loosely related and self-contained for the most part, so you can dip into them at will.



Sorry if you also follow me on Tumblr and this is a repeat . . .

Subject:Ephemeris, Epilogue—A post-For Better or Worse (6 x 23) Caskett multi-chap, Now Complete
Security:Public

Title: Ephemeris, Epilogue

WC: ~3100 this chapter, ~44,000 total

Summary: "Kate hears herself asking questions. She sounds normal. She thinks she does, anyway, but it's all washing over her. Lanie's answers and all of it. She only holds on to pieces. Tiny pieces that she can fix in her mind."




A/N: This was my last WIP, so this will be my last entry. I'm leaving the journal up, but I won't be adding to it. Thanks to those of you who have been kind, supportive, and constructive.

WC: ~2200 this chapter, 40,000 total so far

Summary: "He hates her, she realizes. It's a step up from irritation. From dismissal. A step up from the diner parking lot and it curves her lips into a hard smile. He sees it. He answers in kind."

Title: Ephemeris, Ch. 15

WC: ~1700 this chapter, 38,000 total so far

Summary: "He wants something, and he has definite ideas about how this will go. Just like the diner. And just like the diner, she bites her tongue. She doesn't say her lines. He's waiting for just that, and not giving him what he wants—what he expects—has brought her this far."

A/N: I decided to split this chapter. Posting it simultaneously with Chapter 16. Chapter 17 will be the epilogue.

Title: Ephemeris, Ch. 14

WC: ~2800 this chapter, ~34,000 total

Summary: "It's too familiar, despite the crowd she can just see out of the corner of her eye. Despite the noise and the scent of smoke on salt air. The shadows and the tell-tale metallic click are too familiar. That stupid baseball cap pulled low and the barest glint of blue eyes. She wonders how many things she missed this time. How many different ways she should have seen this coming."

Title: Ephemeris, Ch. 13

WC: 3,000 this chapter, ~32,000 so far (my word count got off somewhere along the way)

Rating: T

Summary: "It's for the best. The part of her she wants to be—the part she's been growing into since she met him— believes. But it's small and fragile. It's been built up like this. In loss and pain and more kinds of fear than she can count. It's at war with years of habit. With the fact that she's still more at home with loneliness than she is with this."

Title: Ephemeris, Ch. 12

WC: 2700 this chapter, ~30,000 so far

Rating: T

Summary: "When it's dark, and the wounded places inside fill with fear that whispers that this is something awful she's dreamed up—something awful she's done to them all—she lays her head in Martha's lap without a word. She slips on to the couch at Alexis's side. She strokes the girl's hair as they watch the sun come up. The three of them tell the story to one another over and over and over again. They tell each other to hope."

I'm shutting down this journal in the near future as part of removing myself from social media in general. I had deleted it, but have since decided that's not the right move. I've posted the last chapter of Sleeping Bag and I'll post the remaining chapters of Ephemeris; after that, there will be no future updates.

Title: Ephemeris, Ch. 11

WC: ~2700 this chapter, ~29,000 total so far.

Rating: T

Summary: "The outside world is hungrier now, and that's good for the plan. That is the plan, even though she hates it so much of the time. Even though it goes against every professional instinct she has, the game is different now. They're not solving a murder, they're bringing him home. And to do that, they have to flush Cross out."

WC: ~3900 this chapter, ~9500 total

Rating: M

Summary: "It all comes and goes in waves. Worry about the minutiae of right now. The crushing weight of everything this doesn't solve. Delaware and a sleeping bag. What feels like the first time she's touched anything in him in weeks."

Title: Sleeping Bag, Ch. 3

WC: ~2400 this chapter, ~5600 so far.

Rating: M

Summary: "There's something savage in it. Something not quite anger, but close kin to it. Something bright and hot and alive that drives the sorrow out, and she's so relieved."

A/N: In editing what was the third and final chapter of this, I found myself unhappy with the wrap up. I am going to do a fourth chapter as an epilogue. I know that's annoying.

Security:Public

Title: Sleeping Bag, Ch. 2

WC: ~1800 this chapter, ~3200 total


Rating: T in chapters 1 and 2, M in chapter 3

Summary: "It's another thing they're not talking about, and that wasn't part of the agreement. Worse than that, she's only just noticed. It's gotten lost somehow. The fact that they never talk about him anymore. It's slipped through the cracks, because everyone else does. Everyone's eager to talk about him. To tell her he's ok. That he's doing just fine."




A/N: turns out to be AU after Watershed. Set between seasons 5 & 6

Title: Meraki, Ch. 4

WC: ~1900, 5500 total

Summary: "She wants that. The sweetness of settling next to him, words and sounds and satisfaction rolling over them both. The quiet pleasure of feeding him. Of making this her place, too. Their place." A story of indeterminate length about nothing at all. Set some time not too long after "Murder, He Wrote" (5 x 04). Now complete.

WC: ~3000 this chapter, ~22,000 total so far.

Rating: T

Summary: "Brady keeps her in the loop. Daily updates, and he's always kind. He thinks this is just about closure, though. That she's looking for a murder—something to solve. He's kind about it but she knows how it must look in pieces like this. A series of coincidences stitched together by grief into something that isn't there."

Title: Ephemeris, Ch. 9

WC: ~2500 this chapter, ~18,750 total so far

Summary: "She's grateful to have the two of them with her. That they'd dropped everything without a word and driven halfway from the city to pick her up, engine running at the back door of a no-name restaurant, and no one's acting like this is crazy, even though it might be. It might completely crazy, hoping to find something here. Somewhere to start this long after the fact."

Title: Sleeping Bag, Ch. 1

WC: ~1400

Rating: M

Summary: "She thought it would be fun. And they could use "fun" right now. Something to lift the pall of this so-careful, so-uneasy detente they've fallen into since . . . since everything they're not talking about."

A/N: I wrote this last year. It's AU from Watershed onward, set between Seasons 5 and 6. Three chapters, eventually M rated, though on the tamer side of that. It's also kind of in the Camo-verse with "Sharp-Dressed Man," "Legs," and "She's Just Killing Me," but it's not as light-hearted as those. Can I sell a story or what?

WC: ~2300 this chapter, ~16,000 total so far

Summary: "It's him. It's the absurd little details she's missing. Connections. True things and the stuff he makes up out of whole cloth. The pathos and intrigue. The way evidence becomes a story."

WC: ~1900 this chapter, ~14,000 so far

Rating: T

Summary: "She hates how easy it is for her to forget, even for the space of a few minutes. For a smile to settle over her and
all this to feel normal. For life to go on."

Title: Due North: Epilogue—Once Upon a Time

WC: ~1400 this chapter, ~6100 total

Summary: "She rolls her eyes. Tips her head back. It's not just for him. The impatience. The disbelief. It's for her, too. For youth and stupidity. He wishes, not for the first time, that she weren't so hard on herself. All her selves."

Subject:Due North—Wish Fulfillment—A Caskett PWP three-shot set in S6
Security:Public

Title: Due North—Wish Fulfillment

WC: ~3600 this chapter, ~4600 total so far

Summary: "Her eyes dart around the room, apparently unchanged since she left it. She's a little thrown by it. A little intrigued. It's not the champagne-and-roses surprise she was expecting, and the color is rising in her cheeks now. She tries to cover."

A/N: This chapter is more NSFW. Also long for PWP. I edited as best I could.
