This is outstanding...the language creates such powerful tension and grief, and the contrast between the good memories and the awful ones is equally powerful. Excellent.

That was a very interesting way you wrote it. Great job though, i'm looking forward to more!

So so so amazing. Heart wrenchinly amazing.
*wonders if "wrenchingly" is a word*
I liked the way you wrote it too. Clever with the sort of brisk abrupt feel to it. yet it still flowed.
And the last bit with Brennan comforting him. It was beautiful. You can see it happening. You use very vivid imagery.
I'm enjoying reading your fics so much!
Really well done.

This is wonderful!

I wish you would turn this into a multichapter. Mourning process always touches me, but having someone there to help you cope and relive memories.. it's just such an interesting scenery, so so rich. It screams for more!
Will you consider the idea if I pretty-please you?
Honestly, it's a remarkable oneshot as it is, but your writing is so beautiful... I truly wish I could see more of this story, and more of Booth's past.. and more of Brennan learning about it. And more of them growing together along the process, of course!

This is just heartbreaking, and so well written. I am so glad that you are contributing to the Bones fandom again! Hurray!
My favorite part about this story is that you didn't choose to portray Booth's father as ONLY a mean drunk - you also had him recall happy times with his dad. This makes the story SO MUCH more believable; because in real life, relationships are always more complicated.
As usual, great job!

Okay seriously you are KILLING ME! I should have read these in a different order! Booth is crying and his Dad has died, and he's so sad and angry and I could totally relate to those feelings. It struck a cord sweetie, and it was a good strike. Sometimes lifes too short, and sometimes it's way too long. I thought it was just perfectly you. I liked the cadence to the story and if this was a new style, well it's suits you just fine. Great job! You couldn't do much else or much better, so...hm, oldie but a goodie, YOU ROCK MY SOCKS!

First off, give your muse a big, BIG hug for me because I have 3 stories from you and my inbox and I am muy excited! :-)
Secondly, wonderful job (as if you didn't already know that)! I think it all flowed nicely & it had that Anabelle touch that really makes you see, feel & smell the story.

Very interesting. Was Booth crying? Poor guy. I'm glad he threw the flask against the wall. I"m hoping he doesn't pick it up again. He doesn't need to turn out like his father, and I think that's why he threw it. Good work. Just wish it was a little longer.

that is very interesting... you've got a very interesting way of writing. i really like the end... it's got something...
| crazycamera chapter 1 . 6/21/2009
nice piece of writing.. good showing of the emotions
| a2zmom chapter 1 . 6/21/2009
I liked the style. I think it worked very well for this because Booth isn't the type to let out his emotions easily.
| invis chapter 1 . 6/21/2009
That was so powerful. I can see it would be tough to trust yourself with a new writing style, but you definitely pulled it off. Great job with this. I love the way you expand on particulars despite the economical style of this piece. For example, when you explained why Brennan smelled like lemons, that was like a breath of fresh air to me, because so many writers will say a woman smells like strawberries or honey or something like that, and it comes off really sappy because, as a realist, I'm sitting there saying, "Really? Strawberries? AGAIN with the strawberries? WOMEN DO NOT ALL SMELL LIKE STRAWBERRIES!" (Okay, that *may* just be a personal hang-up of mine, but you get the idea.)
Anyway, what I'm saying is that you did a fantastic job with this style, and with taking one known fact about Booth and using it to play with his character in a way most people wouldn't think of. Excellent, excellent work. I really enjoyed this.

So painful, but I think you really captured the emotions. I enjoyed reading it. It does have the potential for another chapter, but I think it also stands alone pretty well. Great job.
