I love how you tag onto the actual story lines. I always wonder what if with these two.

"That saying about not seeing the forest for the trees pops into my head, but with a twist. Bones has a way of not seeing the trees for the forest."

Again, again, again... you have it so well expressed.

Hi H,

When I saw this epi,I could see your chapter totally happening!

Love that Booth finally decides he can't not wait any longer and that he wants to give them a chance at all he has been promising her here.

You just capture Booth so well in this chapter!

"Because you don't need hope when you have what you want*

-Completely loved this line

Thanks again Heather,

I can't wait until that line goes away for good. I hope they actually mention it when they get together. I think its important to acknowledge that Booth drew it, and its going to eventually get erased (I hope! Did you see the interview with DB when he was like "What if Bones and Booth never get together?" Of course, he was probably just teasing.. but what if?) Anyway, great job.

Well this would had been a more satisfying end of the episode, hands down!

I think I've read about that moment before. Did it really happen? Booth walking into the lab and seeing her really laugh? I feel like a bad Bones fan for not knowing... :( Although, if it's in the eps when Sully is around, I tend to avoid those. I hate seeing her with Sully.

This was perfect. I love that he's known for a while, and it just took her really laughing at something to make him realize it. *sigh*

Hi there,

'If she starts looking, really looking for the one, I have a funny feeling she’ll look everywhere but right next to her. I guess I can’t blame her'...

This is Booth's major fear, that and letting her know his feelings before time...

Ah! That dreaded 'line'...

'But Bones? She misunderstood what I said and heard exactly what I meant. And you don’t have to tell her anything twice'...

Poor Bones is really feeling down...like she has given up on ever finding anyone special...

'I’m not going to let this happen. She deserves better; she deserves everything'...

Loved how he decides to take the bull by the horns...

'I tell myself it’s just like going to that first GA meeting. One step after another - one word after another'...

I just love how once he starts he can not stop...how her expression goes from blank to alive when he tells her that they should give it a try...

'If I’m very lucky I’ll get to deal with this Bones for a long, long time'...

Just love how he explains when he first realised that the line was gone and how he felt about her...love how he kissed her and how she kissed him back...loved...

'Because you don’t need hope when you have what you want'...

Really wonderful chapter and I loved it...looking forward to more from you as always...

The speed at which your brain works...your creative juices flow ...& your fingers move over the keyboard - how quick you are able to watch, assess, process & create these tags, continues to astound me!

As much as I liked this episode, AGAIN, I was left feeling so aware of the missed opportunities to make some not-so-subtle progress...So I am very happy that you are around to make the most of these oppotunities. :-)

Loved this from the word go,

#the subtle humour:

**The love of my life plus whiskey plus a soft, forgiving surface equals bad things happening. Good bad things. But I can’t turn her away. I can count on one finger the number of times she’s come by unannounced to voluntarily discuss her worries and fears with me

#the analogies:

**More often I wind up at her place, furiously digging away at her walls. They’re fortress-like, thick and buried deep, banked high with dirt and rocks and prickly briars. She hasn’t yet taken them down, so I usually tunnel underneath them. Tonight is the first sign that she might be clearing a path for me, however slowly. How can I not approach?

#Booth's realization that the more that he stresses that there is "someone" out there for her...she will decide to go out & find that someone...& chances are - she won't find him (Booth).

#& FINALLY, Booth is just as sick of talking about 'eventually', 'someone special for everyone' & 'someday', as we are of hearing about them...I want him to pull his finger out...be a man...say that eventually is NOW...someday is TODAY...& that HE is that special someone...& do something about it *frustrated sigh*. Actions speak louder than words, in this case.:-)

**“You and me. Us. Together.”

...Here, in this version, at least he doesn't just make a cryptic comment to Brennan, but actually spells it out for her *fairy claps for you!* :-)

**Because you don’t need hope when you have what you want.

...loved it!

I've said it before & I will keep saying it till the cows come home...that you have such an amazing insight into the workings of these 2 characters - & that comes across in EVERY fic that you write.:-):-):-)
TemperTemper chapter 1 . 4/16/2009
I love this, it's a perfect continuation of that scene - when we were all sitting there yelling 'KISS HER!' at the screen.. and I love Booth's thoughts. Great insight :)
Beaglicious chapter 1 . 4/16/2009
This was excellent! I liked how you tied in the "drawing the line" from Cam a few seasons back, b/c I just know Bones is going to ask that questions...and all the others you had her ask. And I loved that Booth anticipated that, saw he was getting in over his head, and just kissed her. Their dialogue was perfect too, very Bones and Booth. nice job!
unequivocal chapter 1 . 4/16/2009
The episode's ending had so much potential... glad to see you filling it out. :)

Enjoyable, as always. Thanks for sharing!
