Very in character how Booth and Brennan went from their moment to being all prefessional but still managed to talk about it before going all professional. And oh my, things are certainly getting intense now, what with the murder, the storm and the shooting. I'm worried for Booth, I hope you make him okay and maybe throw in some Brennan ass-kicking (in that she does the ass kicking lol).

I knew Booth wouldn't leave her. Although putting the idea in the story was good because it fits with procedure and all that. I sense a blustering chapter coming up. Hopefully with more BB developement. This chapter had some nice development with Brennan acknowledging that Booth's hug was different.

Okay, since I told you I'd stop telling you how good the dialogue is (which it still is) I'll find something else to comment on. Case development is good. Nice pace. Chapter length is also good. Not too long nor too short either. A nice read. Loved the part when Brennan talked about the leering sheriff guy and how she didnlt think Booth noticed. Liked how you had him laughing but not telling her why. Next chapter now.

Another wonderful chapter. So well written and very expressive. It is all so easy to read and so much fun. I think I see where you are going with the tropical storm thing and I'm excited. Relationship development between Booth and Brennan is progressing very nicely. I'm going to stop telling you how good the dialogue is. If you don;t know by now you haven't been reading my reviews lol.

I love the way you write descriptions. The action sequences here, both the chase and the fall, were amazing. I also loved the fluff between Booth and Brennan in the hole, not to mention his rantings about her running off. The dialogue was spot on and as I said in my review of a previous chapter, I could really imagine the actors saying the lines. You're a natural at writing Bones fics and I'm hooked on this story. Onto chapter 5 now. So excited you posted it all.

This case is starting to get complicated and I like it. It's interesting, different to other fics I've read (and the cases on the show). I always appreciate a unique idea. I also see you've done your research on hurricanes. I always have trouble writing scientific speak and dont have the resolve to research so its nice to see someone put in the effort to make a fic authentic. I also like how you're slowly but clearly defining Booth and Brennan's feelings for each other. Next chapter!

Your writing moves well between chapters - you've managed to keep the atmosphere you created in the first chapter. I love how you describe the characters facial expressions and the dialogue is really good. I could imagine the actual actors saying the words on the show. I also like how you're pacing the story and not just launching into it. I like a bit of build up. The flashback type thing at the end of this chapter was good too. It established where Brennan's developing feelings are coming from. Onto chapter 3
| jemb 5/1/07 . chapter 1
I really like the start of this story. You have captured the fun element we see in the show with both the dialogue and the descriptions. Characters seem, well in character and I particularly like the bit where Booth admits he 'might have dinged' Cullen's car. Made me laugh. Off to the next chapter now.

awesome story. this is probably the most well written piece i've read in quite a while. good job!
| Jackie 5/1/07 . chapter 10
Great story! This was so well-written and in-character, which is always nice to see, and it was very realistic how they slowly acknowledged their feelings for one another. The case they worked on fit perfectly allowing them the freedom of being away from home, but yet still giving them a reason to be in touch with the Jeffersonian. You said this was your first Bones fic, so I'd love to read more! And thank you for posting the entire story at once, it's always disappointing when great stories are started but never finished. It was so wonderful to read the first chapter and see how well it was written, and that it flowed, and then realize that the rest of the story was right there, waiting to be read!

one word- perfect! keep these fics coming!
| enigma731 4/30/07 . chapter 1
Perfect. (Because I made it that way.)
No, really, this fic is brilliant and entirely yours. I really don't deserve to be called a beta, since I'm pretty sure I had way too much fun reading this through every time I did.
Now go sequel! ::picks up stick::
Thanks again for letting me be a part of this fic's awesome creation.

This story played like an episode in my head. Awesome, solid writing. It's refreshing to read a story that's well-written, well-thought out, and in character. I look forward to other stories from you...hopefully!
