Remington Steele

And Still More Tomorrow by Medie

'Murphy...tells himself he's a detective, some days he even believes it. Most days he punches the clock and waits for the weekend.' Bittersweet backstory for a character that canon short-changed & most fanfiction overlooks

Put the Blame on Steele by Yahtzee

'In Steele's opinion, reality is grievously overrated.' A top-notch character study, done just as it should be, through the movies. I smiled all the way through this one

[Added 03/11/2004; Romance/Erotica; 2500-6000; Remington Steele]

Six Ans de Mer by Dirty Diana

'Maybe she's not a falling kind of girl.' Subtle picture of a shifting relationship

Steele to be Discovered by Xenon

Excellent characterisations & good dialogue, married with a twisty plot with the same madcap feel as the series, make this a gem amongst Remington Steele fanfiction. Xenon's other adventures listed on the author's site are also worth a look; I'd particularly recommend 'Edge of Steele', 'Steele and Old Lace' & 'Steele Stolen'
