|Reviews for The Traitor of the Heart|

you really like Seeley Booth don't you ?
Because he's the main character of your OS...but I don't complain about it, it's really interesting
this one was your first for Bones, but it's really beautiful ! Congratulations ! It's realistic, with a little bit of magic - I think you always put some magic in your stories - and some fluff :) so good !

"my heart missed you, I felt it Booth"
Ah, that we should get to hear those words for real. Booth isn't the only "traitor to his heart" and you've captured that truth remarkably well.

Nicely done, thanks for sharing.

Wonderfully detailed,and truly lives up to the high standards of all your writing. I could clearly picture each scene. I don't watch Bones, but, if what you portrayed on paper is what the show offers on screen...I'd be very hooked on this love story.
You did a great job "hooking" me in to what's in store for these characters. KT should be very happy, because as a stand alone piece of fiction,you captured and provided amazing characterization. Warm regards, Jasmin
p.s... we really need update to TC/EWTB - if KT had hell with finals...well...hope you have something for us soon.

The title was perfect. The "whip, whip, whip" woven throughout was masterful use of sound and imagery to take us to the desert with him. Your use of measured time and the coffee cart pulled us further into the story.
Even though I already had ridiculously high expectations of you and of this story, I am still floored. Your use of detail and the way that you reveal the characters thoughts to your readers is just quintessentially YOURS. If you don't write more Bones fanfic I will pout loudly and often.
You know I'm not kidding.
You also know that I adore you.
You are more than amazing!

This was just...gah!
I am speechless, I actually am...this doesn't happen often.
You say this is your first piece for Bones? I am so so impressed by that! My respect for you shot up about 10 points and I don't even know you. You have never written about these people before, and yet you are so true, so loyal to them. This was just fantastic. I enjoyed every second of it.
The thing is, you haven't said anything that I haven't heard before in other fics (Booth excited to get home, just one more day, meeting at the coffee cart that isn't there anymore and embracing) but they way you did it was just...perfection.
You said so much with so little, and I absolutely admire your writing style.
I could go on and on, but I need bed, and this is just the thing to send me into a happy slumber.
I am truely glad that you wrote this and just thank you :) I hope you continue writing for this fandom (adding you to Author Alert just incase ;) )

Ok, Apes...so, I'm sitting here reading this little one-shot of yours, and I'm so totally wishing I had followed through with my (failed) attempt to catch up with this show when I started watching it last summer. Because as much as I adored this one-shot, I can't help but sit here and wonder if these two apparent soulmates have actually spent five seasons denying their feelings for one another...and have spent an entire year apart. Have they? Five seasons? Holy crow. I guess I need to jump back on the Bones-watching bandwagon and figure this all out. Or you know, you could just send me the CliffsNotes. Ha.
Anyway...this was a wonderful read. It was beautiful. I don't even have to know the entire backstory between these two to appreciate what you've done here. You told Booth's side of this brilliantly, which is, of course, to be expected from you. His regret, his pain, his heartache, his anxiety over the unknown...it was all perfect. And, that moment...when Bones got out of the car and they walked toward one another, that first embrace, those first whispered words that came straight from the heart...incredible. Well done, Apes!

Love the premise of this so much!
| GCatsPjs chapter 1 . 6/9/2010
This piece was absolutely lovely. A gift for a friend who had a tough exam, and everyone knows Katie deserves the sussy stuff, so I will have to go with... 'this is a good pre-sussy bones fic'. Lol. It was beautiful. Nice touch with the coffee cart, and the 'whip'... the letter... it all built the anticipation to that moment that we were all waiting for... and for a little bit there, I thought that they wouldn't make it.
Beautiful prose, beautiful thoughts, and you have got to write more Bones fic... i'm addicted, kiddo! :)

I just moved over to Bones too. This was a good one-shot! My biggest complaint, that there wasn't enough of it because it was a really enjoyable read. There was a pretty big use of italics, but for what you were going for in this fic, it's justified in my mind. Good luck in future Bones stuff!

Wonderful, extraordinary tale which goes down like an elegant milk shake. Incredible writing which warmed my heart in the hiatus especially the descriptions.
My favorite lines are
it'll all work out, even with ill-fated delay of a coffee cart.
Have you considered a sequel . . .

Nice! I liked it! :D
| CockyForBones chapter 1 . 6/9/2010
This was an amazing story. I really liked the idea of Booth being stuck and waiting to see Brennan again.
The end was great.
Great story. You should write more for Bones.

Apes... again... thank you for this amazingness (I don't think that's a word but I don't care because this is worthy of creating a new word).
There is so much I can say about this. About the feeling of being in purgatory... of... just waiting for that moment when you know everything will be right again. It seems so insane... and in this case for Booth and Brennan... you 1) wrote Booth's longing perfectly, and 2) wrote Brennan's email in this amazing fashion. Because it's Brennan and she's you know, who she is... but this email says everything without saying anything. It's that perfect. Because that's what Brennan does.
I just... this piece rocked my sock off. Their meeting at the coffee cart was perfect... and it just... Brennan trying on outfits is so true. When you know you're going to see someone again, suddenly you focus on the outfit, or the hair, or whatever being perfect instead of just embracing that moment because a part of you is so afraid something will have changed.
This was just amazing, Apes. I can't thank you enough for this. You really know how to get me :)
write more bones. including something MA rated ;)
