A beautifully-written, in-character case file. I've been looking for one of those :D

I love how respectful Brennan is of the Muslin belief even though she herself does not believe in G-d. I think that is beautifully in character for her.
How said that these children suffered so.
Russ teasing Brennan about Booth was too cute.
I am surprised that in the prior chapter, Brennen didn't mention that Jews don't embalm either,especially since it's probable that Muslim buial customs were modeled on Judaic tradition (they are very similar).

She gives Booth a hard time about his religious beliefs but takes the time and care to make sure a little Muslim girl's skull is oriented towards Mecca. So very much sounds like our Bones.

K, really phenominal story! I'm enjoying reading it (whenI should be writing) very much. Your attention to detail is impeccable and does not take over the story flow. I also enjoy your use of the characters, absolutly dead on. I could so see this as an episode, one that I would probably consider in my top fove favorites. Looking forward to more...squirrels and all.

I liked this chapter. It was nice to see Brennan interacting with her brother and his family as it's been a while on the show. I liked the information that's starting to help flesh out the case you have going on in the story, but there was one thing that kind of irked me. I know you appreciate when you do receive constructive criticism, and so I'll just throw this in.
I love the amount of description that you put into your stories, but the last line written about the appearance of the pediatric ward was not necessary. My general rule of thumb in the brief amounts of description that I do put in my stuff is to give just enough to let the reader picture it in their mind's eye, but you tend to put just a little too much in. The writing is good, but you just put a bit too much into the 'look' of where they are. Just a thought for future chapters. Otherwise I really liked what you have.

Ahh! Finally, we know who these kids are! I want to know who would go and dig up their remains like that, but I'm sure that's coming eventually :]
Cute insert there at the beginning, having Brennan reflecting on her past and the one Christmas she never really got to have while with a family who would help her get it back. Hope to see more of the Russ Brennan family, too!
Keep writing! :]

The whole "pointing east" notion - that is just so wonderfully Brennan. This is (another) terrific story.

This is an incredible story!
I've only read the first chapter, but I can't wait to read the next few chapters.
Lovely character portrayal - keep it going!

I loved this chapter. Excellent. I liked the previous one, too, but like you said, the site was down. The squirrel thing is 100% true, too, which is great. I was bit by one when I was a kid.
Anyways, great job!

“You know, even when you’re agreeing with me, you’re still arguing with me,” he said, suppressing laughter. “You can’t just agree, can you?”
I love that line.
Great story so far. I cannot wait to see how this all turns out!

I think I'm repeating myself: but your story is playing in my head as if I'd see it on TV. Great )
| a2zmom chapter 3 . 11/18/2009
So thw children were buried in acordance with religious traditions. Curious.
Loved Booth's comment thet Brennan argues with him even when she's agreeing. So true.
| Poetgirl925 chapter 3 . 11/18/2009
Very good story so far! Can't wait to read more :)
