Title: I Had Become Comfortably Numb (Until You Opened Up My Eyes)
Author: [livejournal.com profile] ggjunkie33
Pairing: Castle/Beckett
Rating: PG
Length: 100 words 
Warnings: None
Summary: Beckett is lost, until she's kind of not, with a little help from a certain writer. Written for the prompt "found" from [livejournal.com profile] castle100.
A/N: Title from Kelly Clarkson's You Found Me.


She was lost for years, stuck in limbo. Not knowing anything, not daring to dream of finally discovering the truth.

She drove herself half-mad trying to find the one detail, the one overlooked mistake that could crack open the case. She pulled herself out just in time to save herself from being completely enveloped by it.

After that, not much changed. Her life was repetitive and weary, and she was still outwardly cynical.

Until one day, a man walked in with a smirk and a book to write.

She wouldn’t know it then, but at that moment, she was found.

This was so deep and rich and just incredibly lovely. It said so, SO much in 100 words. Because Castle was right in the finale when he said that she likes to hide, and he really is the only one who has actually tried to find the real Beckett (Um, I may have just come up with a drabble idea myself. lol. You've inspired me!).

Until one day, a man walked in with a smirk and a book to write.

This line really tugged at my heartstrings. It's almost like a fairy tale - but their kind of fairy tale, which makes it even more perfect. (Oh God, I'm rambling now. This is what your writing does to me!)

OMG, BB *blushes hugely*

I am so incredibly flattered that you liked it so much and that it inspired you! ♥

Yes, Castle really does try to find the real Beckett doesn't he? In writing this I was also thinking of the really sweet moment where Beckett tells Castle that he makes her job more fun (or something to that effect), and I imagine that she smiles a lot more now that he's part of her team :D

Oh, this was absolutely wonderful. Love that you delved into who Kate was before Castle. Really excellent insight.
