"As long as there was no Barry White." Amen to that! I'm not all that fond of Hacker...but then again, I've never been fond of anybody Brennan's gone out with. (As I was reminded of when an old ep aired today, with that Michael dude in it...) They seriously need to put Brennan and Booth together already!

I haven't graduated yet, but I have written a new fic. I posted it a couple weeks ago. Have you read it? I wouldn't blame you if you hadn't. I know how life being crazy can take everything off your mind except how you wish it would all just slow down. I know that's how I'm feeling. I'm job hunting and I think I'm just going to go back to Wendy's until I find something better. I've had a couple job offers, but they're in career type jobs and I don't want that.

Onto your fic. I definitely did not know that about Led Zeppelin. Interesting.

Haha, loved Brennan bringing up Catherine all the time. Definitely jealous. I'll admit though that I didn't like how alright Booth was with the effort she was making to appear as though she was happy for him. That too seemed to come a bit too easy for my liking.

Barry White...eww.

I love your dialogue. You write it so well. You really capture the dynamic between the two of them.

Awesome job!

Sorry I'm so late! D:
This was cute! I don't understand why you ever think they're out of character... especially when I can HEAR their voices in my head while reading this. Anyway, good job! I can't wait for the next.

Have a great week!

Hi! Sorry this is a little late. I certainly wouldn't have thought you offended anyone with the last story! It was very funny and sweet. I hope you didn't have a hard time over it? Another great oneshot which was very enjoyable, and I liked the continuing music theme, with a slightly sexier edge to it here :D The mention of Barry White was very funny, especially how it sort of happens accidentally! Love the image of Both posed and bobbing his head to a guitar riff, that is a great shame he missed out on seeing Led Zeppelin! I could really feel his disappointment there. I giggled at his views of her music collection, and how she kind of didn't get baseball either. Loved her 'Anthropologically speaking' response :D I also loved of course the ending :D

Very nice.
Keep it up!

Hhol :) Well done again. You've captured the bizarre comfortable yet uncomfortable atmosphere that the show has created for the two of them. Brennan's cluelessness about some subjects is so spot on, as is Booth. It's a great addition to the ep; fits seamlessly. Looking forward to your next one :D

I like this. It totally fits character voice and if you interpret her last question as just being factual in nature, that is still in character too. I just want more BB and less angst, and if I have to get it in fics, so be it. Good job!

Loved it! I didn't think it was OOC at all! Love the great awkward Bones question the end!

I never knew how Led Zeppelin got their name, though I knew what a zeppelin was. So, thanks for including that; it was interesting.

Personally, I'm betting that Brennan will ask Booth BEFORE she turns down tickets to ANY concert in the future, after the grief that she's gotten for this one. :-)

I like her continued questions about Catherine. She doesn't let it go, despite all non-verbal cues that she should. In my opinion, I'm betting that Booth won't go on any more dates with Catherine because he's probably getting uncomfortable with how much emphasis has been put on different aspects of him dating her (e.g. the "social contract," etc.) and he'll subconsciously know that she's not actually "the one," anyway. When he accepted the tie from her as a gift and then he was told he was in a social contract, I could envision him possibly realizing that he wasn't ULTIMATELY going to let this go anywhere long-term, and it was unfair to Catherine to lead her on like that. Again, IMO, he may not declare it flat-out to Brennan that the he & Catherine were no longer seeing each other socially, but I think it will happen, nonetheless. That would also partially explain how uncomfortable her questions about C make him because he hates lying to the people in his life (except when it involves a "greater good," such as Parker and Santa, of course).

As far as Brennan's lack of understanding of baseball (and others' interest in it), I SWEAR that I remember there being an episode somewhere in which she understood some sort of baseball reference someone made, everyone was surprised that she got it, and she said that she'd been taken to professional baseball games as a child because a loved one had been a big fan. Maybe that never happened, but I think it did, probably in one of the earlier episodes. It also wouldn't be the first time that the writers forgot something from an earlier script (e.g. the grandfather who supposedly saved Brennan from the foster care system, though she later said something to the effect of never knowing her grandparents).

But, I'm rambling big-time here. :-) The Barry White stuff was classic. I could completely understand Booth's dilemma after he introduced THAT into the conversation: should he explain it and embarrass himself or unintentionally give Hacker an excuse to possibly seduce Brennan, by way of showing her the draw of Barry White? Loved that epic conundrum. :-)

Thank you for the kind shout-out in your A/N. It made me happy, and I look forward to your future fluff :-) (as well as all of your non-fluffy work, too, of course). Also, I don't remember anything in last week's fic that would possibly offend, but that's just me. I hope most of your readers felt the same because I know that you would never intentionally do that.

Nailed it.
The end.

I could see this conversation happening! LOL! Very glad there was no Barry White on the CD!

Firstly, SPEKTOR FOR THE WI *composes self*
Secondly, did someone say something about your last piece! Not cool at all...*slaps palm with bat*
Anyway, putting all that aside, this piece was lovely, and I can't wait to see the ep :D I love these little pieces you do after each ep, they're lovely, and you always write the characters brilliantly.
I had to laugh at the Barry White explanation, I can just picture it. Lovely piece, as always, my dear.
I hope life is treating you well, apart from the fact I know that you're up extremely late/early since you posted this...But I'll ignore it...for now ;)

Way to knock one out of the park, Danes.
I adore this - especially since I've been singing Centerfield by John Fogerty all friggen day. Don't you just LOVE baseball season! Squee!
Anywho, this is awesome. I was gonna write a post-ep but you basically stole my brain and beat me to the punch.
Loved it.
Hope you're doing better.
Love you.
