Chapter 10 of Learn to Have Been

"She reminds me of now
and now and now.
I must learn
to have been so lucky.”

Chapter 14 of Worst of Times

Honestly, WoT is one of my favorites. I like the plot immensely - back when Triple Killer had only shown up the once and let Castle live, so we all were expecting some seriously crazy plot that would strike right at the heart of Castle. Tyson still had Ryan’s gun; he had escaped; Castle bore the burden of whatever deaths ensued.

I chose this chapter because this was where everything that Beckett and Castle had on Tyson began to fall completely apart, where they began to realize that they weren’t as safe as they’d expected, weren’t in control of this. 

Chapter 4 of Happy and Glorious

Me when dealing with new people, especially people who expect me to be on my best behavior.

And sometimes it happened, for a time. That kind of love comes and goes and is hard to remember afterwards, like pain. You would look at the man one day and you would think, I loved you, and the tense would be past, and you would be filled with a sense of wonder, because it was such an amazing and precarious and dumb thing to have done; and you would know too why your friends have been evasive about it, at the time.

Chatoyance

—cat’s eye effect, specifically in gemology, the optical reflectance effect

also found in an Ian Fleming novel, “Diamonds Are Forever” - because he is JUST THAT CLEVER (diamonds, gemology, follow me here)

me? I just found it in Precursor by CJ Cherryh because I read more sci-fi than Bond

Random Chapter:

The UnNatural Order

This story - a one shot, following the episode - I really like what it says. It just felt like someone needed to say this, someone had to take up for Castle after the whole Pi/Alexis thing. I didn’t think the characters were very well done (one of the reasons why I liked Alexis was that she wasn’t the usual teenager, and then, well, she became the usual teenager as a college co-ed and that’s just sad). So I wrote this, put some responsibility for the way they all treated Castle back where it belonged.
