    Summary

    The card isn't signed, but it doesn't have to be. The scrawl of black ink on the back is too familiar, she'd recognize it in every lifetime.

    Did you know that bees can get buzzed from caffeine, ma'am?

    Summary

    “Is she a friend?”

    He shrugs, though it’s a stiff movement. He knows he should just say yes, because it’s not untrue, because it’s the easiest way to explain what Karen is to him. But it also feels wrong, because friend seems like such an easy word to hold the complicated swirl of emotion he feels when he thinks about Karen. It’s both too much and too little to describe what she is to him -- a person who has been ally and advocate and antagonist all rolled into one, whose name has been both an invocation and affliction, whose memory sets off a warning light behind his eyes and a low, steady burn of longing across his veins.

    In love with this fic. Beautiful idea of what Frank's "after" could look like, and a lovely romance, even if Karen never appears.

    Summary

    But no, yes, the Punisher. In her apartment. Staring at her with an unfazed expression on his face. Even from the doorway, she can see the white skull painted on his chest-piece.

    And this is somehow so normal for her, at this stage of her life, that she honestly takes one look at Frank, at the bruises on his face, at all his gear spread around her apartment, and says, “Okay. It’s 11:07. I haven’t eaten yet. I’m going to order some dim sum from the corner and you are not going to get any of that gun oil on my bed.”

    Summary

    Once upon a time she derided herself for imagining they were a done deal on a collision course straight to her bedroom. But that's all over now and he's gone, hasn't been back since he walked off her roof and disappeared into the night air. It's not all bad though. She has friends, she has work and tonight she even has cause to celebrate. It is, after all, her birthday and there's a chance the universe will be kind. It's just a chance though. And not a very good one.

    Sequel to You're a ghost town (and maybe I'm a ghost) and As days go by, the night's on fire

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Simply the best Kastle fic on this site. So much angst it will tear you into tiny pieces, but just enough hope to put it back together again. And a slow burn to end all slow burns. I can't even express how much I love this fic.

    Summary

    The two of them, they’re freight trains on a collision course with each other and they’ve always known it. It’s been that way since the very first time she spoke to him, got right into his face with a picture of his family and a promise for answers. They were meant for this from the moment Karen crossed that red line.
