Eeee, you wrote fic! This makes me extremely happy. While you totally shouldn't feel bad about not running it by me, I can completely relate - I posted fic the other day (it's only on Live Journal at the moment, but I'll probably post it at ffn very soon :)) and had similar pangs wanting you to read - sometimes you finish something and just want to get it out there! As always, I'm here if you need me though :)
This was amazing - you do things with words that I wish I could do, like the little bit:
"It's not about the taste of the alcohol anymore, he's long given up on that; it's about the feel of the fire as it hits the ice of his belly and rolls around with it before succumbing to the coolness and settling, sending a feeling of emptiness to every limb and reach of his body."
I can so see this happening - given the mood at the end of that ep and Booth's drinking - you've portrayed what comes next so well :)
Also, heh, hope being back at uni isn't sucking as much for you as it is for me! xxxxxx

This was quite excellent. I love all the implications of a simple cup of coffee. :). Great work!

It's just delightful to read something from you...I always know that I'm in for a prosaic treat when you post Em :D
The thing that I liked best about this piece was that you've maintained the emotional continuity from the episode...the pain, the raw emotions, the regrets, the self-restraint in seeking and giving comfort. That harsh clumsy drunken kiss was perfect...it was wrong...just like the harsh clumsy drunken words spoken at the bar. But like the words, the kiss had to happen...as an expression on the physical plane that echoed the emotional expression...if you catch my meaning. Perhaps I over think these things...but your writing is thought provoking, long after the reading is done.
I hope to read more from you soon. Take care :D

That was just wonderful. You captured Booth's voice very well, and I love how Brennan brought him coffee in the morning, just as I imagine she did in canon. Fantastic job.
