That's the word! Inconsistant.
That's the word I have been searching for to describe what's going on!
Short, sweet, to the point and just the way it should be. I liked this one. :)
I'm glad the fact that Booth didn't fight is being addressed, but at the same time, I do like how things are going...
I guess I'm a contradiction as well. ;)
Thanks for the fic and the word.

You have such an amazing insight into these two characters, and capture their feelings exactly as I believe the writers on the show intended. The section in italics sums up to me exactly how Brennan is feeling, and it made my heart hurt just reading it :(

What a wonderfully insightful and poignant piece.
The key message is clear. This relationship is not simply subject to cause and effect, and you have captured the complexity of conflicts born of contradiction, and the resulting inconsistencies.
Love the last line, I think that the opposite is true to some extent...

Wow! This about says it all...She is 'an exercise in contradictions'...she does needs lots of affirmation that she is the only one for him, even though she would rather him have a 'better woman'...I would really like to know why she does not think that she is good enough for him, the best woman he could ever have...
Lovely piece Jamie...

Well said. You captured it all so perfectly. Great job!
| Starlight77 chapter 1 . 5/3/2010
This is really great. I love that you highlighted her inconsistency which really was so apparent in the last episode. You can just sense how conflicted she is.
The part in italics rings so true. She needs to know that he still cares about her more than anyone, but then she can't fully accept his love either.
I like the ending too, how he realized he was inconsistent too, by letting her get off too easily.
Thanks so much for sharing!

I loved this. I loved the end of last week's episode too and feel them getting closer even though they're dating other people. I was also EXTREMELY disappointed that Booth gave up so easily when she told him no...I mean it's obvious that they're both MADLY in love with each other!

Amazing character insight! I definitely think about things like this all the time...

She won't live for him, but she'd die for him.
Nail on the head, baby.

Sigh. Sad Booth fills me with ennui.
| MickeyBoggs chapter 1 . 5/2/2010
Oh *sniff* just lovely. I especially love your explanation of what Brennan is thinking. That just, guh, cut right to the heart of it. Wonderful job.

I like how you can read so much more into the character of Brennan than I can. When I watch Brennan on TV these days, I take her claims at face-value. That means that when she says things like "I'd like to meet myself" and "I'm very intelligent and beautiful" I mostly just think she's being extremely arrogant.
That said, when I read your stories - they allow me to see past that superficial surface of Brennan. They (perhaps) allow me to see her as a bigger and better character than portrayed on television. For that, I'm very grateful. Because sometimes I feel bad that despite how complicated a character Brennan is, I can't make myself see past her one-liners (which, for the most part can be separated into 2 categories: jokes about her social ineptitude, or her usual claims of "being the best.")
Maybe what makes this story most endearing for me is that you chose to write it through Booth's perspective rather than third person. Booth can see things about Brennan that I can't, he can understand why she acts the way she does when I simply refuse to sympathize.
And for that, I thank you, the author - for making Booth as aware as he is, and for making Brennan better than the actual writers themselves have.
