You don't? You wouldn't know it after reading this! Great story, very sweet! I enjoyed the Brennan and Russ dynamic, and of course, Brennan stealing Booth's SUV:)

Aw! That was a fantastic entry. I love the way you always seem to be able to get inside Brennan's head and describe how she is feeling. I loved how Russ behaved when he was with Annabel, I think he would be a really good dad. And the conversation between Booth and Brennan was brilliant I could really see that happening on the show. Booth is very protective of his SUV. Wonderful story! :D

Hey..a pretty baby! actually a sea of babies..scary in a how you made Brennan go from hesitation to determination. And have her phone go off in the middle of the room..wow..i literally covered my ears :-)
You may not like babies but they come out beautifully out of your pen :-)
And you always had a special something for describing Brennan's inner wars!

Ha! Having a break from the trick-or-treaters long enough to squeeze in writing my review!
Wow, things have really disintegrated between Brennan and her brother. On the show, she was really trying to build something with him now that he was back, and even after he left, she didn’t seem to have any animosity towards him. But here, he’s been gone for an indeterminate amount of time (at least nine months, obviously) and the chasm between them is gaping.
Nice break in the angst of her indecision to fill in the back story about ‘borrowing’ Booth’s SUV. Boy, oh boy, he’s going to be ticked off when he finds out that she’s taken it. I liked that fact that the SUV was listed only behind Parker and Brennan at the top of his priority list! He’s such a man!
And up she goes to what is clearly the maternity ward. Nice reaction from Brennan to hearing a woman in labour – only a woman who has never gone through it herself would have that reaction. The rest of us are shuddering in sympathy along with that poor woman in memory of the experience!
Brennan’s hesitancy and uncertainty are very in character; she really wouldn’t know what to do with a baby. To see her unconsciously cataloging the closing cranial suture was an involuntary and instinctive reaction, but a likely one for her – it would simply be second nature. It was a heart tugging moment when she watched Russ with his daughter; she who wanted a family so badly, and yet it always seems to be just out of reach, watching her brother with the daughter he had helped create.
Booth’s timing sucks. But it was a nice break from the tension and unease between Brennan and Russ for her to settle back into that comfortable bickering camaraderie with Booth. And then to leave him hanging like that was just perfect.
As the story concludes, it’s nice to see that brother and sister are both going to try to mend the rift between them. With the addition of a new baby, Russ has been reminded of the importance of an extended family. And Brennan has obviously been feeling the loss of him and needs to re-establish the connection.
An interesting twist on the family dynamics for Brennan and Russ and a very interesting vision from the song!

I love the thought of Brennan around babies, it's just so funny and awkward.

Very nicely written

:-) Nice entry for the NJC ... I always like the fact that everybody makes something different out of a song. I just read labsquints entry - which is way different from yours.
But yet, yours appeals to me as well. I love the idea of Brennan being fascinated with holding a baby. So fascinated and distracted that she even stalled Booth's phone call. It also ends on a wonderful note with Brennan thniking about "do[ing] her utmost best at becoming part of Russ's paradise, his Eden." That was maybe my favorite sentence!
Thanks so much for writing it,
Lots of hungs and love

You don't like babies? No! You must be kidding :-) Babies are cute.. I really liked reading this, I must say the beginning was a bit.. not-catchy? But, immediately after she was in the hospital it was CUTE! You wrote Russ down well.. I totally could imagine him as a father. And I see what you're getting at with the song vs. the story.. It's a nice combination. [And so different from mine!] Anyway.. Well done girl! x Addy
PS: Probably won't be coming online tonight, tomorrow, the day after that etc. Maybe you can write me a sneaky e-mail? *bats eyelashes*
