Summary: "Kaylee, would you mind explaining how exactly she came to be on my ship?"
Notes: Written for [livejournal.com profile] tvrealm - challenge was to write a character into another fandom. I could be persuaded to continue this, maybe...I may or may not ship Mal/Kate already.

“Kaylee, would you mind explaining how exactly she came to be on my ship?”

Kate Beckett registered that someone was talking, and this someone didn’t seem too pleased. She pretended she was still unconscious, trying to remember how she had gotten here. There had been a crime scene…and some silver device that she’d picked up. She didn’t remember any more. It could have been some kind of weapon of some sort.

She seemed to be lying on a soft surface of some sort, but beyond that, she didn’t know where she was, and she didn’t want to open her eyes quite yet. Not until she knew what she was dealing with.

“I don’t rightly know, Captain,” a female voice said. “She just sorta appeared in the cargo bay.”

“Do you think the gorram Feds are behind this?” another voice, a deeper male voice growled.

“Jayne, if the Alliance was behind this, don’t you think they’d be a bit more subtle than dumping some jian die in the middle of our ship?”

There was the sound of feet walking around, and Beckett had the distinct feeling that she was being studied. She fought temptation to open her eyes.

Someone new spoke. “I’ve been checking her vitals, and apart from being unconscious, she’s completely healthy.”

“Her being healthy don’t exactly give me reassurance, Doctor.” It was the first man who had spoken.

“Don’t be so paranoid, Captain! She looks perfectly nice!”

“I’m just tryin’ to be careful, Kaylee. Don’t want her killing us all in our sleep.”

A new voice entered the fray. Beckett quickly assessed it. Young, female. “She’s a bird with a broken wing that’s trapped out of her time. She’s forgotten how to sing.”

“Have I ever told you that your sister is a little fong luh, Doctor?”

“You may have mentioned it once or twice, Captain.”

Beckett had had enough. She opened her eyes and looked around. She seemed to be in some kind of medical area. There was a dark haired man checking a screen – probably the doctor someone had mentioned. A younger girl in overalls stood nearby, and next to her was a taller man Beckett wouldn’t want to cross in a dark alley at night.

She turned her head to the right. A younger girl stood next to her, peering down at her cautiously.

“You’re awake.” It was the first voice again. Beckett turned her head the other way.

She blinked, confused.

“Castle? Where the hell am I? What is going on?”

He showed no sign of recognizing the name, or of Beckett herself. “I don’t know what the di yu you’re talking about, but I want to know who you are and why you’re on my boat.”

Beckett let her head fall back to the pillow with a groan. She had a feeling it was going to be one of those days.

What a great fic! I'd really love to see more with these two. I think I've subconsciously been shipping them, too. Sequel(s) please when you have a chance? I'd love that.

Thank you! Mal and Kate would be so awesome together! I just need an icon...

I'll try and see what I can do! :)

I'd love to write more, if my muse lets me! Writing Firefly/Castle always makes me happy. :)

Thank you for commenting/reading!

Really enjoyed this! Could hear the characters' voices in my mind while reading, which is always good.

Would love for your muse to strike in the same way once more. (;

Awww, thank you! I was really worried about it since I'd never written Firefly fic before. I just made sure to watch a couple of episodes before trying this.

I'll try and write a follow-up after my ficathon fic is done! :D

OMG, teh_awesome. Your Firefly characters are totally in-character, and of course Beckett would address Mal as Castle. What a fun fic!

From: [identity profile] hecatescurse.livejournal.com
Aww, I'm glad! I was worried about it since I'd never tried Firefly fanfic before. But I'm glad it worked out!

My other idea for a crossover is that Castle is Mal, but that didn't work for this challenge, so...going into Firefly-land it is!

Thank you for reading/commenting! :D

“Castle? Where the hell am I? What is going on?”

Oh love it, love it love it (although now I'm wanting to know what's happening on Castle's side.)

Awww, thank you! I'm glad you enjoyed it! :D

(Castle is probably freaking out at Beckett's disappearance. As is everyone else. Haha. Poor them!)

I love the idea of a Castle/Firefly crossover :)

This was really cute.

Thank you! I usually like to write Castle/Firefly crossovers where Castle is Mal, secretly, but it didn't fit with this challenge, so I just went with this instead! But we'll see in the future! :)

Heeee! Love it! Crossovers can be such fun. ^^

From: [identity profile] hecatescurse.livejournal.com
Thank you! :D

And yes! Crossovers are awesome! Almost all of my fic are crossovers, to be honest. They're really the only thing I can write!

Please let me join the crowd and ask for more of this. I chuckled out loud while I was reading it, and would love to see Kate try to explain Castle to Mal. :)

BAHAHAHAHA OH BECKETT.

Castle so should've worn the Captain Mal outfit for the halloween costume, so she'd have a point of collision when seeing Mal and thinking it was Castle in costume but STILL.

Nice icon. XD

Beckett's already confused enough as it is! And you want to put her through more?! D:

Ok please tell me that this was not where your muse got up and went on her summer vacation or anything. I always get a big smile at these crossovers...and I've been dying to read one with Beckett and Mal...
