Wow, that was you had found the time to continue as you stated above. I think Booth's past gets totally overlooked in place of Brennan's. He's been abused by his father, abandoned by his mother, & gone to war as a sniper. With the gambling story line that's occurring on the show now...when you think about it, Booth has had one hell of a lot to deal with over the seasons. He's been shot on several occasions, kidnapped, tortured, rejected several times (still can't figure that one out...those insane women), his son taken out of the country, his wife & daughter on the lam, not able to get married when he wanted to thanks to Pelant, his home destroyed, nearly killed, imprisoned, leading to him losing faith in his country & job, & lost a friend & coworker. Yeah, I can see him experiencing a lapse in something. A person can only take so much before something has to give. It's not that he doesn't love the family he's always yearned for, but a way to cope with will of the angst that he's had to endure. So kudos to you for at least writing this little chapter. The potential for more is quite astounding. Pardon the rambling:)

Nice fic, I really enjoy reading fics that explore Booth's past; we get so little of it on the show... Thanks for sharing.

Excellent fic! You did a really great job making the emotions and shifts come naturally.

lol... I really wish something like this had happened in the show!

We all have our own reasons why we do not like certain things...Bad memories are a good cause anytime...
'Birthdays sucked and had done since he had been a little boy. Even chocolate cake and a legion of good friends couldn’t change that. Temperance Brennan hated Christmas and he hated birthday celebrations'...
The sadness was great in Booth's past...
'Her attempt at humour fell flat as he turned to her with a depth heavy sadness that she’d never been privy to before'...
Love how she felt when he told her of his violent father...
'She looked up at him, overwhelmed by an almost loving instinct to protect him; to soothe away the scars and the horrific memories of abuse'...
Love how Cam came out and asked them to come back in...
'she appreciated that Cam had offered her some insight into the troubled past of the Booth brothers'...
Love when she asked him was he the right man for her...
'Ah Bones, I’m not sure about that. I require more effort than any person should be worth'...
'When he laughed too, Brennan fell silent, watching the residual memories flitter away and a light-hearted ease slip back into his physique. I did that, she thought. I made him smile. I made it better. She had never been responsible for that before'...
Just love when they kissed for the second time...
'She tasted like wine and chocolate cake and he found that he was hungry for her. He wanted to be worth her effort, to be the man she kissed and not his younger brother. For once he wanted to get the girl – this girl'...
I would love you to continue, but only if you have the time...you know I love your stories...
Thank you for this one...loved it...

I really would have liked to have seen the ending of the episode go on for just a little longer. Brennan sitting next to Booth at the bus stop was sweet...but a touch, a comforting touch from her to him - for a change - would have made it just that bit more sweeter...I hope that was just the beginning of the conversation between them!
I am glad that we got your version of this conversation...but poor Booth, putting himself down with all the self-doubt:
** I require more effort than any person should be worth.”
**“He only showed you the direction for that belief, Bones. You led yourself.”
...Touche, Booth...this is what I myself was yelling at Brennan.
Loved the impetuous kiss - Brennan's attempt at comforting Booth. :-)...but the impetus causing her to put more force behind it. LOL. At least she was able to right that.
I really like it, that it is Brennan this time offering the support, understanding & comfort to Booth, in her own awkward way.
As much as I loved this episode...I will never understand how Brennan could even begin to think that Seeley Booth was the Booth-lite brother...or that she could be persuaded to think of him as a "loser"...after everything that they have shared, been through!
Another great fic from you. Look forward to reading whatever you decide to write next.:-):-):-)

I loved that you didn't make their first kiss all romantic. No one's first kiss with a new boy really is... I liked how he reacted too. It made it feel more like Booth.
Good Job. And I hope there is more!

| Cheryl chapter 1 . 11/17/2008
Very nice! I love how Brennan was able to put that smile on his face! Great story! I only wish that the writers would have gone the extra mile like the fantastic fan fiction writers do.
Thank you so much for sharing with us.
