Speaking of flailing, I've read a couple of great fics recently which feature my sekrit UC Castle pairing - Beckett and Esposito! Seriously, there were a couple of moments back in season one which just made me go "Hello!" - of course I can't remember now what they were (which could be cause for an s1 re-watch!)
But it's nice to know it's not just me - and its nice to read well written Castle fic that's not Beckett/Castle or Esposito/Ryan. (Not that there's anything wrong with those pairings, but holy moly there's a lot of it!)
