Would love to see another chapter!
Maybe it's not the traditional BB we all are used to, but then again, it is in character for her to cope by completely throwing her into something else, and it is very Boothy to try and establish boundaries, only to realize he doesn't want them there.
It was extremely enjoyable to read this short (hopefully just for now) oneshot!
Thank you very much!

I think you have captured the 'tone' of Bones very well.
I must admit I felt very much like this when Booth brought up Hannah in the opening ep of S6.
I would love if you continued to evolve the story into a BB but I get where you're comming from with leaving it as it is.

Poor Brennan. :(
This does seem like something she'd do - emotions are messy and complicated, and she likes to work with what she understands.

I would call it more sad than depressing. Great line with: "man of the night who would fill the empty void inside her with his ego, his arrogance; his manhood." It's perfect because whether intentional or not it sounds like she's looking for a Booth substitute.
I think I'd leave it as a one-shot because it was so powerful. That and it goes against character for the Brennan you've laid out - she doesn't want a relationship or to give explanations. She'd have to explain the situation to her "date" and would be giving up her annoniminity.
Also, while I could see Brennan having at least one - if not a string - one-night-stand trying to dull the pain, I respectfully disagree with the thought that she couldn't ever love Booth. I think that's been borne out already - especially in the first few episodes of season 6.
Thanks for sharing this somewhat shocking little read!

Yay! Another stonking story - I would love to read a squirmfest double date :0)

Loved it. It flowed nicely, you didn't force any random details in, it was short and sweet. :) You didn't get them together at the end and it was perfect.
