Beautiful, complex, complicated, and daring. One of my lifelong favorites.

Awwww this was so lovely! A little fluff, a good chunk of case, lots of concern for Bren, efforts from her friends to make this transition easier. Just...wonderful :)

Wow. I admire you for allowing her to have a permanent injury...especially one that would affect her work with Booth. Most writers wouldn't dare go there, but the truth is, one rarely escapes being blown-up without some life-altering injuries. This could have been way over the top, but you wrote it with perfect balance (thanks for including humor!). Brennan handled it in a very Brennan-like way; she adapted. As for Booth, well, he was also true to character. He was protective and guilty, but he stood by her. He helped make things right. I also loved the loyalty shown by the squints.

Wow, what an angsty, touching little gem.

Love Booth's anger and guilt. I can hear all of this:

"Booth, this was not your fault."

"The hell it wasn't! I could have gotten my own damn drink..."

"'Right. Because that would have solved everything.' Now she was using her Mom Voice." Haha!

I love Angela! You've nailed her. "That's why you have those extra-serious FBI guards at the door. That's why I'm here to scream if anyone comes in and acts weird."

Oh, that was the BEST part, Bones on medication and still using logic, calling Booth to warn him.

"not lacrimating properly"-sort of funny but so endearing. And her very tough and logical response, the way she's adapted to this, all the details like memorizing folder order on her desk.

One tiny little complaint, that we had to wait to hear if she looks any different after the injuries, and how he knows if she can see him... But very effective and concise bit here:

"...her head tilted at the angle that meant she could see a bit of his face. The scarring had left a small cloudy patch on one eye and a white spot obscuring part of the blue of the other, but they were still piercing and unique and beautiful."

Mm, how did she get to SENSE when he was checking her out? :D

In summary, beautiful work.

I like it. Interesting twist on things.

A promising beginning. You write 'squint-speak' convincingly, and Booth's confrontation with Kenton was true to both of their characters.

Looking forward to seeing where you go with this!
