I absolutely loved this story. I loved the way it was written, the tone and the tense and the flow. I loved Brennan's rage, and Booth's moments of cruelty, and I loved the raw openness of it all! I tend to be very choosy about the things that I read, and this just blew me out of the water! There are so many things about this season that just piss me the eff off, and reading about and imagining their anger with each other just felt so ... right, and utterly real. Great job!

This fic is just so awesome. You are very talented and i feel that you really get their characters. I love the most that this is how it should be for them to try and move on together. It has to be a struggle with all the mess theyve created.
Youre a fantastic writer imo, and thank you for sharing this with us.
Oh and absolutly loved your rant in the beginning. Think i recognised a lot of those thoughts.

This is very good. I cried, I am touched. If only this could be the next episode, it would get the season back on track the right way. Thank you!

Wow. Talk about an emotional rollercoaster. Through most of it, I was just more and more depressed, as it seemed to be breaking them completely, irreparably apart, and in a way that just summed up exactly what the show's been doing and I didn't want to accept. I just didn't see how it could be fixed - the characters are so vastly different from the couple I knew and loved and I couldn't see how they could possibly make me love them again, much less them love each other. And, miraculously, you did it. All of the fanfics lately have left me feeling more depressed because they try to explain away their behavior, act like they can just return to loving each other. But this is the only one that makes sense because it doesn't pretend that they're less broken than they are, that they are easily fixable. Somehow, them being outwardly hurtful and angry and BROKEN is the only way to show some real honesty and work past it. It's the only way I can now see to salvage the situation. So, thank you. It's broken, and painful, but it's given me hope that this is fixable. A bit melodramatic, but after tonight's episode, my emotions on the subject are running a bit high. ;) Anyways, thanks for a very insightful, very ground-breaking fic! You've got some talent there.

I found this story to be articulate and well written. I enjoyed reading it. Good job, and keep writing!

This is an amazing story! I absolutely loved it! Very spot on as far as the characters!

Yeeeesssss! Oh, I long for the day when we will have a Brennan response like this! This whole sad-puppy-eyed Brennan, while beautifully played by ED, doesn't feel real... Feels like something is missing and maybe what is missing is this wake-up call to see if we can finally get Mr. Jerk Booth back to his old self. So here's to hoping! :)

Again, awesome chapter... awesome story...
I know I reviewed for the other chapter after reading both the chapters, but I just couldn't NOT write a review for this chapter...
"He had woken up every morning to that niggling guilt, that niggling fact that when the shit hits the fan, he's still relieved to see Brennan okay because the thought of something happening to her is devastating. He had wild sex with his girlfriend and it was like Brennan was sitting in the corner watching, smirking, knowing what he had known. That Cam wasn't the one back then and Hannah couldn't be the one now. She will always be first, and he will never be happy."
This is just so aptly told... So.. so... Perfect (though perfection doesn't exist)...
"By the time they leave they're enduring full on hangovers and as they walk slowly Booth accuses her of being a bad influence on him – because he's too old to be going to work hungover and the only time it ever happens is with her – and Brennan gives him an indignant shove.
It's not at all awkward and just like that they're three steps in, and they're both suffering too much to take active notice. Progress."
And nothing else could be a better ending to this story... I don't know how you do it, but you're like a magician putting everyone under the magic spell of your story..
I just HAVE to say - I'm madly in love with your story...

So.. so ... so Beautiful...
"The Well of My Forgiveness Has Dried Up"... Can anyone find a better title?
Just want to say... Kudos! AWESOME...
I'm not a big fan of angst but this was soooo meaningful... It broke my heart reading it but it was just toooooo goddamn beautiful... Simply outstanding...
"So she puts aside her box and she approaches the stereo, and she tries to change the station manually. But Murphy's Law – which isn't even a real law – is in its prime tonight and nothing happens. Nothing. Even the power button won't work and she's stuck in Girls Just Wanna Have Fun hell."
Awesomely written... I don't know why I liked this paragraph too much, but I did...
"They missed a moment, but she's come to realize that they've missed a lot of moments over the years and before, they always came back together. The centre always held. Even when they were awkward and she was dating his boss and he was dating a biologist that looked vaguely like her, they held. She has realized that they always held because both of them wanted to hold, even when they were scared and confused, and when one half of the centre simply stops giving a damn, that is when things fall apart."
And this one.. How can I even begin to praise this one... Just tooooo beautiful, heart-crushing, heart-warming and real at the same time... Simply elegant...
'When one half of the centre simply stops giving a damn, that is when things fall apart'... No words are truer said. And such an elegant writing too...
You are one hell of a writer... PLEASE please don't stop writing...
Something is REALLY wrong with the world if you don't become a best-selling author or something...
Simply beautiful... No words can express my appreciation for your story...

Oh man, I love you. Bones needs to yell at Booth. Can't wait for the new Booth to finally wake up his idea!
| Kaelyn chapter 2 . 12/8/2010
This was brilliant, I loved it. Especially this:
"She would have done anything for the Booth that gave her Jasper and Brainy smurf and taught her empathy and showed her the beauty of love and friendship and family. But that Booth never came back from Afghanistan, and this one is nothing to her."

This story was simply amazing. So so good! I was listening to Bon Jovi you want to make a memory when they were doing the shots confessions and I don't know if it was the song paired with your writing but I definitely teared up! Terrific story!
| harper83 chapter 2 . 12/8/2010
This story was just ridiculously brilliant! The angst has been killing me (on the show and in fics) but you did this so wonderfully. And you're rant in chapter one was completely spot on! It drove me crazy when Lindsay never yelled at Danny and it's driving me crazy that Brennan hasn't yelled at Booth!

Love. Love. Love.
Thank you for writing this. :)
