If only they had really dropped their defenses in season 5 we could have been spared she who cannot be named in season 6.

Great job! Love the glitter and smut and BnB moments - just perfect!

Yay! I finally got a chance to read it!
And oh boy was it smokin'! :) I loved the want and the need and the desire all portrayed so intensely in that piece of writing. It was just sexy, from the first kisses under the glitter, to Booth pulling out her hair pins, to the very end.
I really liked the New Years party and Angela and Hodgins' relationship in the background there too. I like that you set it in season 5, I had kind of forgotten what it was like to read stories from around that time. The anticipation for them to get together was so high and even though that was two seasons ago, you've still managed to capture that feeling so well :)
And you combined glitter and smut and it wasn't stripper-esque at all. I rest my case, there really is nothing you can't do!
This was amazing! Thank you for writing :)

i bow at the feet of the metal chicken!
if this is what it can make you do then i believe it has powers equivalent to those of aladdins lamp...infinite possibilities...marvellous.
there are so many things i loved about this...starting with your hilarious AN of course...the exchange between ange and brennan when trying on dresses-i adored brennan for when she straight away said she'd chose another dress-no question- and she thought it was a perfectly reasonable thing to do...loved ange and her theory about brennan needing to be her minder for the night and hodgins managed to grip me in only a few sentences when he realised how ange was feeling about the party. needless to say, b&b were perfection- i laughed at the intimidation booth displayed to poor eric but the way bren took it all in her stride-she's so used to his ways...LOL!
Loved the way they were totally honest with each other about how they shouldnt get together, but they were unable to stop...perfect...perfect...perfect...
OH, ONE MORE THING...I LOVED THE GLITTER!
MANY THANKS TO THE CHICKEN XXX

Okay, I'm pretty sure you win best author's note of all time, lol. Seriously. I feel so far away from you guys right now due to my lack of twitter, but reading this made me feel all kinds of happy right from the getgo and less concerned that I'm about to be forgotten and lose my place in our little group due to twitter's serious hate-on for me.
There are so many things I love about this story... GLITTER! obviously falls really close to the top, but there is so much depth to it on a level that surpasses just Booth and Brennan, it makes me a little giddy. I'm super shallow and will admit to occasionally scanning scenes in fic when they delve a little too far into the drama that is Angela/Hodgins instead of B&B. But I'm beginning to believe that you maybe have magic powers of your own. You've turned me to 2nd person twice, and here, I was just as into everything Hodgins and Angela as I was our favourite duo. My heart pretty much broke for Hodgins, and I wanted to hit Angela a little bit for doing this to him even though I got that she was hurting to and Brennan did a wonderful job of explaining her presence to Hodgins in a way that reassured him without breaking the best friend code.
The flashback dialogue between Angela and Brennan was fantastic... I especially loved Angela's comment about the potential for Brennan to look better than her at her party, and Brennan's complete willingness to just find another dress, lol. I could so clearly see this happening, and it makes my heart hurt because I WANT to see scenes like this between Angela and Brennan again. I want them to be real friends in more than just fic.
"I think I went overboard with the party" the curly haired scientist confessed, half to Brennan and half into his beer. "I think I made her feel weird."
"It's much more than Angela could have managed on her budget." Brennan did her best to be diplomatic. "I'm sure she's very grateful."
"I just…I just got carried away, you know? I want to make her happy."
This whole scene between Brennan and Hodgins was among my most favourite. I just… happy sigh. They are perfectly matched and Brennan is in a little bit of an awkward situation, but Hodgins is her friend too and she can’t just leave him wallowing. And Hodgins? He’s been pining after Angela ever since the breakup and here he can’t even begin to lie about his real reasons for agreeing to throw this party for her or play it cool regarding her presence and the fact that they aren’t together.
And then Booth shows up. And he’s watching her (because they’re always watching each other and it’s hot as hell) and you give us this line;
"She hates small talk," Booth thought to himself. "Good luck, Buddy."
But then she chatted back and smiled at the man and suddenly Booth found himself crossing the room to where she stood.
I just about died, lol. Booth is HILARIOUS. I love that he tries to act so nonchalant about this rando hitting hon his partner, but the moment it looks like she might be responding to the antics, he is all over it. And their people watching game? I pretty much became a puddle on the floor. Cutest scene ever. Especially when they started ripping on Sweets. I love displays of solidarity between them; I’m such a sucker.
GLITTER did not disappoint; it made me start fangirling all over the place just like always. I would really like to know what it is that makes the glitter SO utterly goddamn magical. Everything about this countdown scene and the kiss was lovely, and here, Angela redeems herself. Because not only is she potentially mending fences with Hodgins, she pushes Brennan not to think and offers up the cottage and she is just a good friend. Lots of approval on that front.
"What do you feel, Bones? Tell me. I want to know. He kissed her neck softly before going back to his self appointed job.
"Anticipatory" she said breathlessly. "I feel anticipatory."
I love this word. I’m not Jenn, so I don’t have legit points to give you, but if I did, you would most certainly get them for anticipatory. Their mutual need translates so well here, and the smutty goodness of it all is just many, many kinds of wonderful. You can blame me for GLITTER all you want; this is certainly not going to be the last time that LMC and I push it.

About as perfect a story as I've ever read. Funny, serious, sweet, romantic, glittery, glowy and sizzling with the hotness. I didn't want it to end.

This was an awesome story. That is what New Year's should be about, new beginnings. Loved it!

Lovely one-shot. Thank you for letting them get there, complete with glitter, without the agony of episode 100 and on!
