OMG...What are you doing to me? Do you know what a dilemma you put me in? I had to read the summary twice, just to confirm that you DID kill off B&B...I NEVER read fics with character deaths...& I was going to delete unread...but your name kept calling to me. I ummed & ahhed over whether to read it or not, as I knew tht it would leave me feeling depressed the rest of the day. In the end I caved..I read it, coz you wrote it...& yep, now I am depressed.
But looking beyond that...wow...dark...heartbreaking...but a brilliant piece of writing once again from you. Please don't go away again...not if you plan to come back to depress us. lol. Now we need something light & fluffy...smutty will work too...to get our minds off this.
Off to find something sweet to read! :-):-):-)

Oh my...that was probably the most heartbreaking thing I have read in a long time! I had my hand covering my mouth as I read, clearly hiding my wide open jaw. I loved it though! Truly an emotional piece and very well written. What a great way to come back from a break!

Amazing, I seriously need to go watch something happy and fluffy, if i dont go watch a disney movie I may die of misery but it was amazing none the less. I loved it. Beautifully written again :)

I think that about covers it. I was crying by the time I was done reading just the first part.

I missed you the last two weeks!...Methinks that you better not go away again if this is what you think up while taking a break from the writing for work reasons...Keep writing, all the time...You are brilliant at it...even at this DARK stuff!...
I did not know whether I should read it when I read your synopsis of it...But you know that I HAVE to read everything you write...Oh my! I have to say that it was just wonderfully written...but oh so so dark...
Can not break it completely down because every line, every sentence, every paragraph justifies being mentioned...just a few that really caught my attention and emotions while I tried to breath...
'He swallowed, and nodded, his lips meeting hers as tears ran from his eyes while he kissed her. Her blood coated his mouth as he gathered her to him, embracing her limp, broken form. "I love you," he whispered, then broke her neck. A smile turned her bloody lips up as she stared back at him until his soul went out with hers in her eyes. He killed himself when he killed her. The fact that he still breathed was a technicality. When she took her last breath, he shed his last tear. He carried her shell outside into the sunshine, the late-arriving swat team stopping in its tracks as they saw who he carried.'...
'Three of the six remaining'...you did not have to name them...just knew who they were...But when you did and had Booth kiss them on the forhead...wow...
'After searching, he found her favorite constellation, and wished on the star at the nose of the dolphin that he'd find her again. "I love you," he said, then closed his eyes and swallowed the metal death he'd dealt so often to others, choosing his death on his terms, as she'd chosen hers.'...
Gosh I could go on...but I can not!...I hope you continue with your other stories now and brighen me up a little...

Oh you and your angst! Nice job. Now finish Cracked Ice...please ;-)
| Chicklit chapter 1 . 10/13/2008
Wow. I don't even know what to say. Dark and twisty, yet so beautifully in character. I do question whether or not Booth would abandon his son by committing suicide, yet I find I can rationalize the act as watching Brennan die - and being forced to kill her out of mercy - would alter him to a certain extent.
I'm sure I'll be thinking about this story all day.
