Fic: ‘When was the last time ...?’  
Title: When was the last time ...?
Fandom: Castle
Rating: (G)
Time Period: During season 1, episode 7: breakfast at the end.
Summary: A breakfast that feels like a picnic!

Author's Note: This is quick ‘n’ dirty (for definition see the F. A. Q.).

I watched this episode recently (episode 7, season 1) and I wondered how Beckett might’ve viewed this particular scene before, and even as, she was pulled in by Martha.

Bacon. Eggs. French toast.

Was that fresh orange juice?

Castle was proving to be an occasional surprise, she admitted as she was ushered in by Martha. Before Martha had spotted her, though, a moment of jealousy had begun and, once seated at the counter, it continued.

It was the warmth, the obvious love between Castle and Alexis, between Martha and Castle. The food spread over the counter, Castle whipping up eggs in the kitchen ... All that was needed was a blanket and basket to complete the illusion of being somewhere in the country on a picnic.

She couldn’t remember the last time, as an adult, she’d been part of something like this. Maybe returning the necklace now had been a mistake. Maybe she should go. This was a family moment and she wasn’t family.

“Sit down, sit down,” Martha urged and accepted a cup of coffee from her son with a hand on Kate’s shoulder.

Kate sat at the counter and looked around. “Where should I begin?”

“Tell everything,” Martha instructed. “We’ve only heard his version.” A dark look was thrown at her son who shrugged helplessly at his mother before handing their guest a cup of coffee and paying attention to the eggs in the pan.

“Well, on the red carpet ...”

Oh beautiful. Castle and picnics just /fit/. And you've captured Kate and Martha perfectly.

So Castle like..
Thank you; I was hoping to capture this moment and not have it be outside fitting in with Castle.

I miss the show so much!
Has it finished over there? I'm still near the beginning of season 3 here.

They're taking a break, it's well deserved but what can I say? I'm spoiled. Don't worry about capturing it.. you just get it.

And thank you, again. You've dispelled a great deal of my nervousness about entering the Castle universe.
