If I do another rewatch of Castle (which could be a while, since I'm not through the FIRST rewatch I started, but I am on season 4, which is aways out) I'm going to have to document Kevin Ryan's hair. Because after spending the first half of season 5 lamenting it's length and then rejoicing when it got cut in The Wild Rover...I'm pretty sure it's been cut again.

And the line between too long and too short is thin.

I was just reading a fanfic, and the writer had Esposito think of Ryan -- first as "the younger man" a few times, which just sets my teeth on edge anyway -- but then as a dark blond. As expected, that drew an immediate laugh from me. Unexpected, was the immediate back-buttoning.

Because, tell me, does this look blond to you?

Haven't been good about updating...anything really.

It seems like Ryan and Esposito have been playing expanded roles in these last few episodes (which makes me very happy) -- and of course the most recent episode was a Esposito-centric episode. I'm still waiting for somebody to GIF Ryan's takedown of the agent from the week before last, followed by his own flip/bodyslam into a car.

And I hear tell that there's a Ryan-centric episode in the works. Which makes me ecstatic.

Hopefullly disappointed!Ryan icon will persuade me to update more often.

Seamus Dever, Stana Katic and Jon Huertas are in a 5-second network/Castle promo thing. Very short, but kind of fun, though I continue to ask: What is going on with Seamus Dever's hair? (ILY, but haircut, please...)

I don't write fic, but I love reading it, so I've decided to do a semi-regular fic rec post. My original thought was to have it a fic-a-day thing, but I know myself well enough to know that I don't have the discipline to make that commitment. But I'm hoping to do at least a few a week.

There's no rhyme or reason to the order I post, it's just "the first one I came to in my bookmarks" or "I just read this story and love it!" There are a few authors that I really like, but I'm going to try to feature the same author twice in a row. So, let's get started with:

Hold On by Midnight-Halos
In this fic, Ryan ruminates on the season 4 finale and his "betrayal" of Beckett and Esposito, hurting but knowing he was right. I'm really surprised that there aren't more fics dealing with this issue, given all the ways it could go down.

Read it here.

I'm building up quite the collection of Castle-y icon bases. I've got Photoshop Elements, though, and I wish I was better with it. Because I'm finding simple cleanup things to be kind of difficult to make look right. Also I hate that I can't see a way to put a stroke around text.

When I've got everything done and as clean as I can get it, I'll do a big "Look at my bases!" post.

I just watched Knockout, I think I think for the first time since it aired. And clearly, the scene my icon references was the subliminal reason I was dying for somebody to make my baby cry in the season 5 premiere. (Nobody did, a fact for which I am eternally disappointed.)

Kind of like how I remain disappointed in the season three finale. Not because -- SPOILER ALERT (for something that happened a season and a half ago) -- Capt. Montgomery once ran with a bad element and has known all about Kate's mom's case this whole time. Not because Beckett got shot and I know it will be the most unbelievable bullet to the heart in the history of television. And not even because Montgomery ends up dying -- though, it is related to that.

I'm disappointed, because Montgomery, a police captain who's been on the job for 30+ years took out...I think ALL of the four to six people who showed up to kill Beckett. Now, are you honestly telling me that, had Montgomery not made Castle pick Beckett, also one of New York's finest, up and literally carry her out of there, between the two of them they couldn't have taken out all the gunmen, probably WITHOUT Roy dying?

Because I kinda think they could.

So, over at Television Without Pity, the forum for all Castle chatter is generally pretty negative and misses no opportunity to bash Andrew Marlowe, the rest of the writers, the costumers and pretty much everybody but the actors for everything they think is wrong with the show, but paying special attention to "continuity".

One of the biggest complaints from season five so far came when Ryan and Esposito were lightheartedly teasing Beckett about her new mystery boyfriend. And, by teasing I mean, just the three of them and Castle, with Ryan being all "Beckett's got a BOOOOOYfriend!" to Castle (who, unbeknownst to them, IS the boyfriend) and Esposito being all "What's wrong with him? Third nipple?" or something ridiculous like that and then wondering why she was holding out on them.

The justification for hating on that is that they don't think Ryan would be comfortable teasing her, because he wouldn't have been in season one and Esposito would never question why she wouldn't tell them, because in season three he acknowledge that "Beckett plays it close to the vest."

Putting aside the Ryan ridiculousness (except to say they've been working together for five years and she call them "The boys," so I think they're all pretty comfortable around one another), I just watched the episode where Esposito says the infamous "close to the vest" line.

Beckett was dodging questions about a relationship that was in the early death stages. He was talking about things that cause her pain. Sure, she didn't immediately bring Josh up to meet everybody after Date One, but once she did introduce him, it's not like she spent the whole time cringing and hiding every time he walked into the room, lest anybody see her with him.

Ugh. It just irritates me that people are so...I don't even know if there's a word for it.

I need a Beckett icon.

I've been commenting anon over on [community profile] fandomsecrets quite a bit and mostly just about the TV show Castle. So I thought -- somewhat terrified -- why not give myself a face? I don't know if I'll actually post anything here, but I PLAN on posting about Castle-y thoughts and maybe some fic recs, show news etc.

We'll see if that makes it past this post.
