Interesting twist on the standard WitW fic. I love it! Especially Bren's comment to the little girl on the dolphin-watching trip-so sweet. :) Can't wait for more!

Just a quick note - it's the "American Anthropological Association," not "Society" (also referred to as the "Triple A"). Sorry, I'm having a Brennan moment. :)
I do love your writing, though. I honestly wouldn't bother to point out such a minimal detail unless the story was otherwise extremely well written and edited, which yours always are. Minor errors only stand out when they are uncharacteristic!

Very intense. Awesome chapter!

I love this fic...one of my favourites of yours...so after the last 4-5 days of hell - from early New Years Eve I was constantly at my daughters hospital bedside - & then to come home & find, not 1...but...2 updates, to this wonderful fic ...well, you have made my day...my week! :-).
**I ended up having to just re-write this one, and I hope you'll find it to have been worth the delay.
...I have found that everything that you write is worth waiting for!
Yep, Booth is definately always looking out for Brennan...the fact that he organized the getaway & the dolphin cruise for her as well *sigh* he is such a romantic.
**"Bones, you slow that ass down or I will spank you like the bad girl you are when we get back to the inn!"
...yeah right...like that threat is going to get her to slow down. LOL.
The sunrise...the dolphins...the picnic on the beach...the playfulness at the beach...the steamy shower...*sigh*...what a perfect day!
It really was a complete contrast to when they got home & Booth was questioning her about her photos & Jasper & Brainy...so sad that she had been so affected by Booth's 'death' that she had considered dealing with it in this way. Sweets really does have a lot to answer for. Things most certainly could have ended up so much worse than they did. Loved the way that she opened up about her emotions & how his 'death' had made her feel.
They continue to feel each others pain - Booth wanting, more than ever, for Sweets to pay for what he put Brennan through. Loved the desperate need they had for the other...proving to themselves & each other, that they were alright, that they had both survived - not unscathed - but they had survived & had each other.
**his mouth sucking not just her breath but her will from her
Loved the way that they let Angela into their little secret.
Loved Booth putting the fear of God into Sweets..., but it is not nearly enough...looking forward to finding out what Brennan's ideas are concerning Sweets & payback!
So glad that you are still continuing with this fic...love it...love the updates...just what I needed. LOL. :-):-):-)

I've been reading ALL day(literally) and I really DON'T know where to start...I'd love to go back and review each and every chapter but I'm afraid I'd be here till the wee hours of the morning and since I'm trying to catch up on my R&R's I'll do my best to sum it all up in one (and hope you don't feel cheated!)
The last two chapters I decided I needed a bit of alcoholic refreshment because O.M.F.G. it was just too early to unscrew the cork beginning with chapter 3! I've done more crying, smiling, laughing, sniffeling and drooling in one day than I can ever remember! WHAT AN UBER HEARTWRENCHING FAN-OMENAL SMANGSTMANCY FIC! [Hmm, hope all that made sense] And the oh-so-subtle *giggles* element of the "pain in the therapist" coming to light is just SPINE TINGLING! WICKED WONDERFUL [the little mind-f*r]lol! I'm scared just thinking of the things they're going to do for payback!
The emotional draw that you've enfused into this is just awe striking!-I've gone thru a few tissues to say the least! This chapter definitely had a need for a large glass of vino! OMG! SO POWERFUL! SO EMOTIONAL! I could hardly breathe myself at Brennan's declaration of how paralyzed she was emotionally and physically-AND then Booth began to cry-I just lost it! LOL! Of course you followed it all up with awesome lovemaking!
I have to say that I was (and this is sorta weird to say) glad to see you explored the fact that Brennan had possibly entertained the thought of not going on living after Booth's "death", covering all aspects of that situation-and doing a damn fine job of it I might add! I'd not seen anyone else cover the subject-and I'm SURE I'm not the only fan out there(obviously)that had the thought "I wonder if..." tucked in the back of their mind. KUDOS for handling it so well! The relationship 'stuff' has been FABULOUS and the lead in to all of it was so PERFECT. LOV'D how they decided to tell Ange and her reaction-simple but just RIGHT. I'm truly l king forward to the next chapter and seeing what exactly B&B have planned for Sweets office (at 11:00 at night?) interesting, very!

awesome love it
| Robert Modean chapter 8 . 1/2/2009
This story is a classic, first it's got a great dark Booth, second the Booth/Bones dynamic is incredibly well done, then there's the excellent writing. Major Kudos for this.

'Were you planning on someone other than you needing to sell your apartment, so you cleaned up your personal effects for them first?'...
And you know, I often thought that too...what if she had given up...decided that she could not go on without him...her guilt over him having taken a bullet for her too much too...It was two weeks, two weeks of hell for her and nothing was said about it on either front...so much could have changed in two weeks...so much could have been lost...could you imagine Booth hearing the news that she had killed her self because of the fact that she did not know he was alive...like Sweets was supposed to tell her...I reckon Sweets is one lucky guy!
Love how he was able to cry...and the 'few' times he had been able to cry before...
'He’d known, even before he knew he was in love with her, that she was good, and clean of any ill purpose, and wanted to help him—he knew all along that she offered a chance not to regain his innocence, but to be able to stop believing that everyone was already evil, and would inevitably act on it. She still had hope that people were good— she made his hope possible again'...
His anger was not at himself for her grief or him nearly losing her...
'Booth didn’t need to forgive himself—he could make it up to her every day for as long as she’d have him. But him—he was going to pay for playing with her. Sweets was never going to forget what it meant to hurt Bones, and Booth would make sure that he lived every day in fear of what would happen if he tried it again—fear kept people submissive, and if properly applied on a continuing basis, the person in fear would do practically anything to avoid a repetition. Booth had no qualms, none whatsoever. It wouldn’t be torture—it would be justice, personally rendered'...
Love how he thought how she had come into his life just when he 'needed' her...
'He’d met her when he almost needed something outside himself to keep that part from taking over— she was it, ever since, even when he didn’t even know if he liked her. The fact that she dared him—“be a cop,” she’d hissed- to do better at the work they were doing together was enough'...
Loved Angela's reaction when she saw them together...
The words of the song were just so meaningful...
Loved this chapter and looking forward to more...thank you...
| Aching Bones chapter 7 . 1/2/2009
Really liked this chapter...It was nice to get back into the flow of the story again...
Loved his 'surprise' to her and I know she appreciated it...I wonder what she saw in the little girl when she first noticed her? Maybe a memory of her younger self...Love when the little girl asked her how Booth had seen the dolphins in the beginning?
'He saw them because he always looks out for me.'...
And he does...he always has and he always will...
Loved their 'picnic' on the beach and how he tried to eat all her onion rings...what a savage he is! Hopefully they will come back and bring Parker sometime too...
Love the photos as well...they are ones to treasure...
Looking forward to more...

So good to see an update to this story. I loved it and I'm looking forward to more payback for Sweets.
| CSINaomi chapter 8 . 1/2/2009
Buahahahaha! Sweets is getting what he deserves as far as I'm concerned... the man played with fire (who is idiot enough to mess with a trained sniper AND a crazy sauce genius?) and now he's getting burned (ACH! They are working together on it too!). Can't wait to see where this goes next!
| dknckelly chapter 8 . 1/2/2009
I am so glad that you went back to this story. I just reread it the other day and was was so hoping for more. Is it done or do we get to see what Bones has planned for Sweets? Either way fabulous!
| mereva chapter 8 . 1/2/2009
Oh, I'm so glad that you updated this story! It is great!
