I wish you had the time to complete this story. It is very gripping and I find myself yearning to read more. But I guess real life intervenes.
Best of luck for publishing your other books.

Sorry this wasn't finished. Booth's faith tested. Booth conflicted. Brennan 'hypothesizing.' And Zach! All good ingredients for a great story.

Gripping premise set when B&B were still getting to know one another. Lots of uncertainty makes compelling reading.

"Zack and Hodgins each had their own assignments, but seemed more interested in rehashing Zack’s date of the previous evening which had apparently not been a good one." Haha! very in keeping.
I really liked the logical reasoning here and how they worked backwards. All the characters' voices were distinctive and their characterisation true to the programme - when it was good (ie, before the writers did a psycho fit on Zack). Looking forward to more!

I really liked the relationship you portrayed here between Booth and Cam, and her frustrations being taken out on the dartboard. Pensylvania is an excellent character, I'd like to see more of her.

Loved the interaction with ZACH.
I miss him!
| Leina chapter 12 . 3/12/2009
Yay! Updates! I did like this chapter, though there wasn't too much going on in the investigative department.
| RowdyRomantic chapter 12 . 3/11/2009
This is a well written and thought out story.
It has kept my interest as I read all 12 chapters straight thru.
I like how Bones is acting as she realizes how much this is effecting Booth.
I love the Cam interaction I like how you explained her feelings toward Booth; I do believe she does care very much for him and likewise he cares and respects her.
However I’m still convinced she is more than just a little bit of jealous of Bones and Booth’s relationship.

Sorry this is a little late. I really enjoyed, as always, this chapter, and thank you for updating. I really liked how you began with Dana, and Father Samuel, who is a character I warmed to and felt trust in which I do not think is misplaced. I loved the description of Dana as her feet feel turned to 'cement' that was very vivid. A nice way to see Booth and Brennan too, and th others, through her eyes. And a reminder of the title, and how it begins to unfold in meaning. Subtley and well done. I thought you wrote very well too the conflict she has between the loathing of Father Ernest and the destruction of the church - a glimpse into what damage maybe has to be done to remove evil, and can that he justified?
My interest was also captured once again by the forensic detail and the details of the crime, and the thought behind it in using the bathtub - I won't ask how you worked that out ;) I liked the little moment of humour with Jack :) Just the right time for that. I loved too the ending, nicely understated, but with the possibility of more to it. Really looking forward to more!
| Aching Bones chapter 11 . 7/30/2008
Yes liked this chapter, although it was rather dark...
Had to smile at the reaction Cam and Hodgins had to the priest referring to Bones as Tempe...and then when they realised that Booth and herself had been volunteering at a soup kitchen...like how Bones did not say anything negative when the priest said that he would be praying for them...
Had to laugh at Hodgins...he was in his element talking about the fire...Booth was not too impressed at first but he knew that Hodgins knew what he was talking about...
Looking forward to the next chapter...

I loved the start to this chapter, the religious belief you weaved through it. I actually felt glad John did what he did, and it makes me curious as to what will happen next - loved the line "and if they saw John they’d only have waved to a familiar face" - that just has so much promise attached to it.
Thought you had Bones and Zach spot on, and it was nice to see a Bones centred chapter as well - you write her awesomely!
| lily moonlight chapter 10 . 7/21/2008
You updated! Brilliant! I've been looking forward to this very much :)
The first scene from John the baptist's perspective worked very well; it gave such an insight into him, and why he is doing this., A killer, but one you can empathise to an extent with, and go some way to understanding his actions without condoning them. Interesting too how you emphasised his name as if that is all he has become now, a persona made up of rage and memories and his need to act. Father Ernest, even though he appeared so fleetingly and to die straight away became a vivid character as seen through John's eyes and in his actions. Graphically described death, and rightly so. The last line of the scene was very powerful, 'John hefted the broken shell and carried it out of the rectory. Again, no one saw except perhaps Gabriel, who John was sure helped him. He could almost see wings. Almost. Perhaps Gabriel would show himself next time.'
I liked the perspective of Tempe as well, and feel I got to know her much better here, and how her mind works - thinking and leaping from one thing to another, but actually they connect with the lost girl and the jumbled bones. As well as being a kind of metaphor for the case. I liked the little bits with Zack too - the date and how he softly corrects her. Great ending too, nice touch of humour bringing Davis back, and I loved Booth's last line. Update soon please!
| Aching Bones chapter 10 . 7/19/2008
Yes this is getting better and better...Love how Bones and Booth continue to go to the soup kitchen even though they are not going anymore to get information on the case...Love how they care about Pennysylvania...poor little thing but I guess that she is being better cared for by the community and the priests...
Those Stonghenge skeletons seem very interesting...It will take at least a week to sort out though...I am sure that Bones will work it out in the end, she always does...
Love that they are being called back on the case and hope that Davis does give them the apology they deserve...
Love how Zach has a date too...no 'secret' there eh!..
Looking forward to more.
| Aching Bones chapter 9 . 7/19/2008
Yes this chapter was very good and I enjoyed it...Love how Bones broke the paper weight off the wall and love how they both broke into peels of laughter for a while...It was definitely a release of all the pent up emotion and anger that they both were going through...Love when she mentioned it was the second time that he had called her Tempe (still prefer Bones or Temperance - Tempe is sort of her family and Sully somehow - not Booth)...and love how embarrassed and aware they both got at the same time...
Looking forward to the next chapter...
