Wow! Loved this. This is exactly how I think Booth and Hannah's relationship would've gone had she been the "marrying kind". Clearly we saw Booth wasn't thinking straight in that relationship- and the proposal was part of that. I think he knew full well Hannah wasn't the marrying type- but the compulsion to gamble remained. I actually think a lot of his anger was directed at himself. The way he set down his poker chip at the bar, he had realized he fell off the wagon.
I do think without Brennan's calming influence Booth would be exactly this kind of mess. She grounds him- makes him face reality when he doesn't want to. S6 turned out so badly for him because he wasn't living in reality- he was trying to avoid pain, pretending reality was something different even if he knows otherwise. In Pinocchio- he admitted to lying to spare his own feelings- that was actually the crux of the arc.
I kind of wish Brennan had been dating Mark though- I wish the real show had gone there for a while too. But it would be harder to extricate Brennan from a relationship because unlike Booth she would never pretend a relationship is more than it is just to make herself feel better.

That was a roller coaster ride of feels. You were right about the angst...& the happily ever after ending:-) gotta have that!

Wow. I always wondered why they didn't send Booth down this path after Hannah turned him down, now I know. It would have been really painful to watch, judging by this fic. You did an amazing job. It's rich and deep and hard to read, but so worth it. Really well done.

The part in the middle with Booth reverting to his gambling tendencies was genuinely panic-inducing...and I've never gambled in my life. It's a sad move for him as a character, but you did it very well.

Harsh, harsh, harsh, but it rings so very true.

Oh this is my favourite kind of fic - angst to hope. And thank you for making me feel sorry for Hannah aswell as Brennan and Booth :)

Very good, well written and so much angst. Yet still giving us some hope at the end.
Feels like it could be something like this theyre going for at the show. To bad as much as i like it in a written story i dont think it would be good on the screen.
Thanks for sharing.

What a stunningly beautiful story! Happy, angsty, sad, depressing, happy...all rolled into one and not long-drawn out. Thank you.

I thought it was good. They would need to be honest to get back what they had and to have a relationship. Dancing around issues doesn't help any relationships.

If this is the way the show goes, it would be epic. Seriously. So epic. It's...perfect. I don't think I've read many things quite so...I don't know, real? Something like that. Something that feels like it would happen. Like somewhere outside of the - admitted, awesome - interior of my brain, it would be possible.
In how many words, less than six thousand? you managed to convey an ENTIRE STORY, one that would be capable of spanning several episodes, one that would be seriously and insanely fun to watch play out. It was fun in my head, I can't imagine what it would be like on camera. Well...perhaps fun isn't the right word, at that.
Some parts. Well. Okay, mostly Hodgins being set on vibrate and the internet Voodoo doctor (Ange would totally order a shaman and a Voodoo doctor), but still. ALL of it was fulfilling and worth the increase in my headache that came from Hodgins being just as protective of Bones as of Ange, or Max pitching in to help with Booth's problem. Which, by the way, about broke me. You should have seen my flailing at the screen and cursing. Ha. Anyways, thank you. Seriously. I really hope to read more. You are awesome.
