I really like this - Booth is back to his darker Season One self, which I prefer to the more jovial current version.
keleth chapter 2 . 9/27/2008
WOW!

As much as I enjoyed the 1st chapter , the 2nd really blew me away . Great job at giving us an in depth look at what both might have been going through at that time.

I know this is complete , but there is so much more you could do with this fic .

Anyways . Loved it . Great job .
Aching Bones chapter 2 . 9/27/2008
Hi there,

Thank you for updating this one so quickly...It was a brilliant chapter...

From Booth's pov we find out that it was like a lightbulb going on in his head when he suddenly realised that Sweets was 'playing with them'...he had overheard Bones telling him off on the stairwell and he was proud of her...but he was so angry with Sweets...something he could not deal with right now but he would...

'He was going to have to make her talk about what happened... before Zach turned out to be the Apprentice'...

Can not understand how she can blame herself...

'Booth had to kill someone again, and this time there was a long build-up that was most logically laid at her own feet- she'd made her partner and friend have to kill someone again, even if it was a murderer who could be said to deserve it, if anyone did'...

Loved...

'Temperance Brennan was never one to deny the truth, once she realized it, though dealing with it was another thing'...

Had to laugh when he said he was ordering food and she thought...

'however short the tactical raid might have been, he would have burned a significant amount of adrenaline and would need to replenish his nutrients'...

A simple 'he was hungry and needed to eat' would have sufficed! But that's our Bones...

Love how he had never gone into her bedroom...he would never go without an invitation and he had always hoped for that most in the whole world...Loved when he looked in her fridge and realised that there was food there since he had shared a meal with her a week before he had been shot...

'Had she just... paused? Probably. He'd have to check with Angela, later, and find out who the hell had been taking care of her while he'd been out of the loop. She did look a little thinner, and paler, now that he thought of it. Fragile. Damned Sweets. Damned Zach. Damned himself, too'...

It was finally hitting Booth just what Bones had gone through while he was 'dead'...

'At least Collins would be fine- that knife had only pierced his shoulder. He'd be back at work in two weeks'...

Loved that...often wondered what had happened to him and if he had been killed by Gormogon's knife...

Loved when she was making her tea and she did not put sweetner in...

'she didn't want sweetness tonight, just real things, not covered over with any kind of false veneer.'...

'for once wasn't looking straight back at her with that unsettling, warming, penetrating look he had, that made her feel naked. If anyone else looked at her like that, she'd have cut them out of her life instantly- but it was him, so it was alright, whatever that meant'...

Love how she watched him eating and boy can he put away the food!...And eventually she was able to eat a little herself...for the second time he noticed how thin and pale she was...Love how they tidied up and how he wrapped his arms around her and how she lay back contented against him...Loved even more how they were both able to tell each other that they 'missed each other'...Their usual closeness this night had brought it all back to them...I just knew she was going to lose it when she started to laugh...Booth handled it very well...

Really looking forward to the next update...I love this story...

you should so do a few chapters on Booth and Brennan's week out of work, and what happened after the two of them left the lab.

and what made booth freakout
Alanna1231 chapter 1 . 9/27/2008
I loved this story! It thrills me when Booth becomes protective of Brennan, and even more so when he becomes almost violent when doing so. (The part where he threatened Sweets not to play mind games with his partner again gave me chills.)

I hope you plan on continuing this. :)

Oh hell yes right more to this! That was so great, and totally something I could see Booth doing to protect his squints.

LOved it

Seriously great
whitelite chapter 1 . 9/27/2008
Great fic! I wish something like it had happened on the show-it really bothered me, the way the writers just glossed over this incredible breach of ethics on Sweets' part. I think you did a wonderful job with this, and I for one would definitely be interested in seeing those chapters you mentioned.
CSIGeekFan chapter 1 . 9/27/2008
Oh wow. This is amazingly good, and I love how you so completely wrap it up - the part at the end of how there is no evidence had me cheering for Booth, but also gave me a bit of the chills.

As usual, your use of words is amazing.
Aching Bones chapter 1 . 9/27/2008
Hi there,

Oh most definitely...I am very interested...I was even going to suggest it before I read your little note at the end...

Very good chapter...Had to say that in some part of my brain I was absolutely delighted that Booth had tackled what had been a very stressful and upsetting time for Bones after hearing of his death...Sweets was meant to tell her putting her out of her misery over losing the one person who meant more to her than anyone else, the person who was not supposed to ever leave her...it was a dangerous time for her emotionally and mentally and I am glad that you covered it here (unlike the programme itself)...having Booth confront Sweets was just RIGHT!...

Have to ask though how Booth knew...how he found out because he said, when Sweets said 'she said she would not tell you'...

'He laughed at me then. Laughed? "She didn't. There's a reason you can't have my Ranger file, Sweets, and don't think I don't know that you asked for it. Do you honestly, truly think I don't know how mind games designed to undermine someone's basic psychological foundations are played?'...

I am sure you will answer that if you do go back over the week in a few more chapters...

On that note, I was delighted that Booth had not allowed him to have his 'Ranger File' and that he knew that he had requested it...Sweets is dangerous with whatever mind games and interest he has in our duo...

Sweets was scared out of his life...he knew that Booth was dangerous...he had always contained his anger and masked it behind other things but here he was just plain dangerous...when it comes to Bones, Booth would do anything to protect her...in whatever way she needed it...

Sweets was right...he would never be able to tell anyone about it...His own career would be over and he doubted that the security guard would admit to having seen Booth...he doubted that Booth would actually show up on any cameras...loved that...

Booth is such a dark horse and knows all the ways to avoid detection...he had the right training afterall and years of 'experience' to boot...

This was a very clever clever piece and I loved it...I would love to see more of Booth's past coming into play as well as Bones'...

Looking forward to other chapters please...

Ger

PS. Just loved Cam telling him to get lost too...G.
