It sells the idea that Raylan and Javier Esposito knew each other while Raylan was working in Florida so well I have trouble believing it didn't happen. It also gives a effective look at Raylan just after his marriage ends and is smart, funny, and very well rendered- also there's a bit with Raylan getting drunk and singing Brad Paisley songs.
Esposito is newly partnered with Ryan and angsting deeply about his developing feelings for the man. He pays Raylan a visit and finds that Raylan's wife has just left him. Though this is primarily a Castle fic- and a prequel to a larger Castle series- it's well worth a look.Right Shade of Blue
