It is about time Bren realizes what she is missing out on as well as Booth!
Love how you brought her favourite gifts to life...and oh! do I miss Sid!
The words and feelings you evoke are the yarn, that when woven together create a blanket of warmth that just makes you feel good all over... I dunno, what do you think, kinda sucky, thought I'd try it though?
What I am trying to say in a different way is that you are an amazing writer, I love your work and I can't wait to read the rest of your stories!

I've only recently found your stories and was so intrigued by the first one I read that I went to your profile page. I have been reading all of them all day today. I finish one but then have to go right into another. Lol. I was going to wait til I finished them all to comment but this one was so special I had to review. You are a very talented writer and can capture emotions extremely well. I adore this Christmas story so much with the inclusion of some of the Bones favorite characters (the pig, the smurfette, and of course the "mystical" Sid). Perfect Christmas story and one I will save to my hard drive to read at Christmas for many years. Thank you for sharing with us. Now, I'm off to read more of your stories and I'm sure I'll be impressed again.

Aw. I love the role Sid played in this whole thing - "Boss"! He does seem like the mysterious type that could carry out something like this. And your portrayal of those characters - Miss Piggy, Smurfette, The White Rabbit and Jimmy - was just...spot-on!
I can just see the "without love" version of Brennan's future come true for her, if she didn't have Booth by her side. It's definitely not fair for her to keep pushing Booth away. But, yes, she is a smart woman who "should" know what's best for her.
*says reverently* Tis a Christmas miracle!
Thanks for bringing us this story! :)

I love that Sid is the one coordinating everything! Such a cute story and I love the diverse characters who help Brennan realize what she needs to do, especially Jimmy Stewart since 'It's a Womderful Life' is a similar premise.

that m'dear, was hilariously brilliant! I could just hear Miss Piggy, and Brennan was PRICELESS! Don't suppose we could get a sequel next year?

This story is absolutely wonderful!:-)
I loved it! It's soo sweet and cute! and well written!

Often the number of reviews a story has received determines whether I take the time to read it or not, so I'm adding my thoughts to this one in case others do the same.
This is so sweetly written, but also smartly written...if you can say that about a story with Miss Piggy and Smurfette! Outstanding character study of Tempe...very, very true to the characters and how they would react in this situation.

So Good! Thanks for writing such a warm and fuzzy story.

Love how her 'experience' had been so real...
'And now, here she was, grieving the loss of a child she'd been pregnant with for 30 minutes. Here she was, missing what she had with Booth for those same 30 minutes, when she had, for 4 years, denied herself all that could be, kept him at arms length'...
The whole experience had been so cathartic for her...
'She felt unbelievably stupid to have needed an arrogant Missy Piggy, a smug Smurf, an alcoholic Rabbit and a black and white Jimmy Stewart to tell her how much she'd messed up her own life. How much she'd miss out if she insisted on the safe way. On keeping her heart safe. We make our own choices'...
Isn't is funny how when we are anxiously wanting to do things, fix things, it seems like there is a great hurry, a great need and we will not be able to do it unless we do it hastily and with urgency...
Just loved Jack's reaction...
'You're my favorite everything, Angela'...and I sure do hope that she does call on her over Christmas...I know it is selfish but I hope the whole Roxy thing does not work out and that she thinks about what is really important...Hodgins...
Just love how she looked for Booth 'everywhere' anxiously and got more anxious as the time went by...loved Ms. Piggy...again...
'“I know... If my Kirmy went missing, I'd go nuts! But think, he didn't evaporate'...
Had to so 'laugh' big time when Ms. Pigy said to call her first daughter after her...what a laugh!
Oh gosh but I just loved Booth sitting on her steps...huddled on her steps...waiting for her...loved her 'rant' to him and him talking to her...
'but I'll make you a deal. If I take care of your heart, will you do the same for me?'...
Just loved their kiss...
'She usually kissed with her eyes closed. Just like he faced explosions with his eyes closed'...
The only person I was suprised at to be in the 'group' at the end was Sid...by the way, was he the 'boss'?...
Really loved this story and thank you...Happy New Year...
