Holy Crap! that was pure Booth POV greatness!
Love all the insight you have given us. I really think you like getting inside their heads!
I am trying to come up with some different way of saying what a talented writer you are than I have explained before and can't quit find the words...
This was a wonderful little drabble as you call it,

I have been meaning to get active reviewing long before now, but have been rather obsessed with my own writing. ;)
I love how Booth acknowledges how much he needs Bones, how competent and amazing she is. And his desire for her not to be alone…I didn’t really ponder, during the ep, what he was thinking when he said that. Great insights: his legacy FOR her…giving her that piece of himself, so she would have someone “who loves her more than anything else in the world.” So sweet and sad.
I totally agree with Sherri about the lines, “You need a lifetime to know Bones. I want that lifetime…All of her mysteries.” It sticks in your head, because it gets you in the heart. Very poignant.

You need a lifetime to know Bones. I want that lifetime, I need to figure out the rest of her. All of her mysteries.

Ok, so remember how I was telling you that my inbox is so bogged down that its ridiculous? Well, here I prove my point.
I NEVER REVIEWED THIS EVEN THOUGH I READ IT!
What the hell kind of friend am I? JEZ! And I know I know, I don't have to blah blah blah...whatever! You'd better always review my stories... ;-)
I remember how much you struggled with how to tag this episode, and I really like the route that you took. This was such a powerful scene in the episode, and to have a look into Booth's thoughts at the time is a real treat. I know that you write Brennan and I write Booth, but I have to say that you did a fantastic job. That just goes to show how great a job DB did in this scene - he really connected with the audience in a way that we all felt like we "got" him.
*They're our family. All of them out there, they belong to us.* I love this line because it leaves me wondering if Booth is even aware of the fact that he's created an "us" out of a "them". Very touching.
You did a great job!

I love reading Booth's thoughts, and you do this spectacularly well. His anxiety and nervousness shines through and, really, he needs Brennan here. It completely fits in with the episode.
Thanks for sharing!

I did have a nice Mother's Day, thank you, despite the fact that I was confined to bed with the flu...oh well, at least I got my wish of spending the day in bed, although not in the context that I was looking forward to...but I did manage to drag myself out long enough for the lunch that the kids had prepared, & then crawled back to bed.
I love your concept of a drabble. LOL.
I absolutely loved the last 10 minutes of this episode...from the distraught & hallucinating Booth, in the interrogation room (wonderful acting by DB)...to Brennan's overwhelming concern for him, sure that something was very wrong...to a vulnerable Brennan talking to the others in the waiting room...to Booth's anxious, 'little boy lost' looks, searching out the comforting prescence of Brennan...& it is this particular scene that you have captured perfectly!
**Why isn’t she back yet? I was doing alright, but now that she’s not here it’s all hitting me at the same should be back soon. I wish she’d hurry. I need to ask her something before it’s too late and they take me in. Where is she? I hope she doesn’t run. No, no, she wouldn’t do that, not now. Not to me. She’s my partner, and partners stick. She didn’t even want to go to the waiting room - I know she’ll be here any minute. It’s just so much easier with her here. She keeps the fear away. As long as I can see her I'm okay. Alright, now what do they want? I wish they’d just finish all this and leave me alone for a few minutes. I need to collect my thoughts, I need a minute. I need to talk to Bones...wait. There she is. There’s my girl. Okay. Okay. Oh, man, I feel so much better now. Okay
...Loved Booth's internal dialogue...the urgency, the fear, the worry...then the obvious relief when he finally sees her...& that smile, pure magic! *sigh* talk about wearing your heart on your sleeve. :-) All of these thoughts perfectly mirriored the expressons on his face.
Even Brennan's actions spoke louder than words...organizing for Booth's own parish priest to visit him, shows that while she is a non-believer, she accepts that Booth is & she was willing to go that "extra mile" to ensure his comfort - physically, emotionally & spiritually - before going in to theatre, as well as arranging for Dr Jurcik to do the operation (only the best for Booth). I had to smile at reading this, coz as I was watching the episode the thought of whether Brnnan had arranged for the best neurologic surgeon for Booth, also passed through my mind.
** You need a lifetime to know Bones. I want that lifetime, I need to figure out the rest of her.
...beautiful...& sad...it really says it all...the way he wants to spend the rest of their lives together. *sigh* you are turning me into a big pile of mush. :-)
**it’s Bones I’m worried about the most. I'm scared, but most of my fear is for her.
I don’t want her to be alone.
...You really have to love Booth (hear that Brennan?)...here he is going into surgery...an uncertain future ahead of him...& he is worried about her. How she will cope...alone...without him. Such a Booth-like thing to do!
As always, loved the tag, loved the end of the episode...all that was missing was a hug at the end of the epidode - & I don't mean a 'guy hug'. :-):-):-)

wonderful interpretation of his thoughts. loved it.
| bearlee-there chapter 1 . 5/9/2009
Oh gosh. Great tag. Drabble? I think not. :)
Excellent stream of consciousness putting words to the thoughts behind his expressions during that last scene.
I love that you explained Parker's absence. I love that Brennan has his priest come for the Anointing of the Sick. This is exactly the kind of thing that says "I love you" without words.
"Atta girl. Bones 1, surgeons 0. I really hope this one ends in a tie, though." - Don't we all? Such a perfect Booth thought.
"...if I only have time to fix one more thing..." And this is his way of saying "I love you" without words. Love that even in a piece from his POV we get evidence from both as to their real feelings.
"You need a lifetime to know Bones. I want that lifetime, I need to figure out the rest of her. All of her mysteries" Completely agree with blc wrt this. There's always that one line in your fics that floats in and out of my consciousness for days after I read it. This is it.
You did a wonderful job with his voice. Thanks for posting.

My goodness you managed to pack a whole lot into one short drabble.
Love all that Bones did for Booth to show her love for him (especially bringing in his priest) and love that he reciprocated with offering "his stuff" in the event things don't end as they should.
