oh, that was so sad!
i really liked it though. i felt so bad for booth when he was in that closet saying his prayers. :(

I noticed that in the episode, Jared seemed to have inherited the alcoholism gene and Seeley to have missed it, at least we have never seen Booth out of control because of drink. I think that the writers have something nasty and heartbreaking for us later on. If Seeley isn't covering for Jared anymore...

Very intense and sorrowful. Great back story for Booth. I liked the reference to the flash of emotion and I loved the image of swallowing stars. Brilliant image...

Once again you write an amazing story. This has such a resounding feel to me because I grew up around a lot of alcoholics. One of my mom's aunts was actually found dead in a pool of alcohol and vomit, so obviously it is something in my family as well. What a great way to show the start of Booth protecting the ones he love. How often must he have taken the brunt of aggression to protect others.

Very powerful . . . wonderful,yet sad imagery.

Great story so far. Update soon. Poor Booth. I think I'm still reeling from the abusive, alcoholic father reveal. I hope Bones tries to help him out.

It's wierd now, being grown up and reflecting on arguments between your parents. Sometimes they aren't so stupid an incomprehensible as they were back then. You captured Booth's innocence very well here, and also the beginnings of that insatiable need to protect. Tough topic, but you did a great job with it. Great work.

Whoa. Heavy. And completely in character. Very good.
| Louise chapter 1 . 11/16/2008
This is very good. This is very, very good. The story pulls you in so quickly and I really wanted it to continue further. Very insightful. Congratulations.

Very nicely written. Though my situation was not this bad, I also grew up with an alcoholic parent. The one thing I can say for my dad was that he was never physically abusive. He was more into the verbal and emotional stuff. It also helped that I was the younger child in the family, filling Jared's rather clueless role for a long time. I'm sorry that you have had to deal with this shit. I really hate it. As I said, though, very well-written one shot! You're great at capturing Seeley's protection instinct and still keeping the innocence a young child would have in that situation.
