Castle Fic: Eating Habits of North American Castles  
Written for writercon100's Writercon Multi-fandom Drabble-off Fundraiser
Crossposted to castle_fic


Title: Eating Habits of North American Castles
Pairing/Characters: Rick, Alexis
Rating: PG
Spoilers: None
Summary: Alexis is really too nice to inflict carrot sticks on her father
Notes/Warnings: Read the disclaimer on my LJ


"Apparently someone forgot to eat - again."

Rick looked up from his laptop, blinking.

"CornNuts don't count? I mean, corn! Nuts!"

Alexis put a sandwich on a plate down next to her father.

"Don't make me break out the carrot sticks."

He gave her a mock glare. "Meanie. You headed out?"

"Yeah, Marcy and I are going to head to Central Park, hijack a horse and carriage and moon the tourists in Times Square."

"So the library again then."

"How about I promise to eat a granola bar loudly?" she tossed off on her way out.

"You're a rebel, sweetie..."

New fandom!

Castle makes 20 fandoms I've officially written! (Not counting Buffy and Angel, which I've only done as crossovers here.)

/waves to zubeneschamali who beat her to ficcing this fandom/
/waves to new readers coming to my LJ for the first time/

This drabble was written for writercon100's Writercon Multi-fandom Drabble-off Fundraiser. Rather than try to give you the long spiel, I'm just going to say go check out their profile and read about it. Basically someone else makes donations, all you have to do is write drabbles. Wow. That's just too easy for me to pass up. (Especially since I *run* a drabble comm!) ;-) And yay! They have a slew of great fandoms on their matching fund list including some of my tiny fandom favorites: Miracles, Brimstone, Cupid and John Doe. They even have a special one for fandoms less than a year old, which brings The Mentalist and Castle into play. So if you fic, go do some good with it!

Thank you to everyone whose donations make this possible. I hope you enjoy the fic I produce for this good cause.

(Why, yes. I recycle. Hehehe)

FWIW the title is supposed to sound like some sort of birdwatching thing, like 'The Mating Habits of North American Songbirds.' I originally had the title as The Care and Feeding of Bestselling Authors, but disposed of it for being too long and not amusing enough - nor applicable to Alexis, whom I adore.

The marker at the end of the fic is a reference to the pen that slashes through the word Castle in the show's logo and opening sequence. I miss proper opening credits, but that bloody pen bit was rather amusing.

Thanks,

Emma DeMarais

Re: Confession
Yay, me! I mean, yay you for entering another fandom and with such an adorable, spot-on story. Alexis rocks and you captured her perfectly.

Very nice. Totally in character :)
Emma DeMaraisemmademarais on April 19th, 2009 04:45 am (UTC)
Thanks! It was hard to keep myself to 100 words, it was so much fun!
Abbie Strehlow: me writerknotted_rose on April 19th, 2009 05:01 am (UTC)
This was so much fun. And very in character. Yay for starting a new fandom! I have an idea for a drabble floating around in the back of my head that I may get to one of these years. . .

::hugs::
Emma DeMaraisemmademarais on April 19th, 2009 05:17 am (UTC)
Oh, yay! I'd love for you to write that!

LOL @ the second Writer Kevlar icon on this fic!

I've been wanting to try my hand at Castle for a while, but I had to wait until Alexis started snarking in my head earlier today. :-)

You should take a look at the writercon100 challenge list. I figure I like to drabble, but it's more fun to do it and have writers benefit from them as well.

Hope things are looking up in your corner of the world...

I could definitely see this happening on that show. *giggles* I love Castle and Alexis gen stories, nicely done!
Emma DeMaraisemmademarais on April 19th, 2009 06:46 pm (UTC)
Thank you! I haven't read any fic in the fandom yet, but if anyone else is writing Alexis banter I want to find it!

Aw, I love Alexis and Rick's dynamic, and you've done a good job with it. :D
Emma DeMaraisemmademarais on April 23rd, 2009 07:24 pm (UTC)
Thanks! They're so great together. I was surprised to hear the show made him a dad, but he rocks and she rocks even more.
