| Guest chapter 96 . 1h ago
i was laughing so hard that i've still got tears running down my face, from cbh & mvh's notes, as i was getting to the end of mvh's note, i couldn't help it, my stomach muscles have cramped from laughing so much, as i thought christine was going to do the exact same thing as her mother did 'in the tv version' of having bren working up till her labour started, (yes, i know that in the tv version, bren's pregnancy happened in the prisoner in the pipe ep - but i still replay many times, the several eps leading to b&b's daughters delivery)... wow, christine, according to your description, is even more stubborn & work focused, on doing as much as possible before having to take time off for hers & michael's baby's birth - & in leading this task force, gave me the direct link, in thinking about how her own mum, had been damned determined to stay at the prison, finding out as many facts for the case, to be solved, i kind of felt like, she was internally chanting to the baby, 'to stay put, so your father & i can solve this case, then you can give me hell & come out into the world', sorry, it felt funnier, when thinking about it, maybe not so, in writing it all down...heeheeheehee!
loved booth's grousing about bren trying to put herself into his shoes & see things from his perspective, with the comment of: 'maybe she thinks about sex all of the time & assumes i do too. i'll have to think about that'! that gave me another fresh round of giggles... so thank you...
still loving how you take each chapter from a certain person's point of view, rather than just have the characters speaking as if we're hearing them read their lines as they would in the tv version, this makes it a unique way to see the episodes, as i feel like, i'm seeing things a little clearer from certain characters perspectives..thank you for the chapter update...

It links in with the episodes really well with a booty slant

I had to laugh at Booth thinking that Bones would wait til he was on his death-bed to ask him to marry her. I'm glad they didn't wait that long.

Loved this chapter. You really did justice to how I think Booth was feeling during the whole episode.
I admit I disliked season 7, it was boring, over-sentimental on many occasions, and Brennan went more than a little wacko... not to mention Pelant... I really hate that story arc... But I do hope this story would make the season a lot better, I'm excited to read your thoughts on it.

Very sweet chapter. That was funny about Brennan putting the naked Booth picture in different places in the apartment. It's sad they're getting too old for the Mighty Hut. Glad it will stay in the family.

Great chapter. You could tell that Brennan was driving Booth nuts on the show. The funny part about her fall was that she didn't think about a security guard at the Jeffersonian just Booth being the one that always looked after her. Then Booth didn't think about a guard either until he found out she was okay, his thought was to get to his girlfriend. I can so see Brennan doing that with the picture.
Christine and Michael's thoughts were great and interesting as always.
Loving it and looking forward to more. Audra

i'm not totally sold on why bren/bones was really, really apprehensive to just sell up / move out of their apartments & buy 'one family of their own - shared choice' home, but i think it may've been a combination of quite a few things, in think'g back ova that episode, she's felt secure & accomplished about her apartment, as she'd earned the apartment on her own, it hers in title, so no-one, whether it be a semi-permanent man in her life, of friends, co-workers, can take it frm her.
as she'd not had any biological family since 15, she's kind of scared to let them in, as they then can just as easily walk right back out again, if its hers she doesn't have to give the place up, but also she gets to control whom she allows into her life, apartment & for how long they'll stay there, when her emotions are in turmoil, its her own sanctuary, a safe harbour.
but agreeing with the idea they share, it means there's too much to risk, 'room to leave or be left', when things will ultimately fail - history's taught her that 'no-one stays for her' - forever, so it's easier to have one foot already out the door, or in this case, you keep your place, coz i've got no doubt i'll do or say something, that's going to make you leave me & now our unborn baby, so we both need separate residences..
but booth if we do what your saying & buy a house together, then you are saying your staying - always, i (can't) grasp the concept, as no-ones ever done that for me before, where it works out..
(i think that's her inner voice - trying to desperately tell him - she's scared of all these big changes, that we'll be in each others lives forever, now & i don't know how to do this - without it ending & having you hate me & ultimately leave me!)
i truly believe that's where all her rambling anthropology speeches come from about monogamy & permanent - for life relationships, its the fear of being left & being alone again, once she's let booth all the way in & is awaiting for the inevitable to happen - she'll be alone, once she does that thing that makes him hate her... its very sad - but i can totally understand it...fear of that magnitude can be crippling!
ok, so i'm off my depressive ramblings...
really loved how you got to the depths of booths feelings in this chapter, you did it again, 'but of course, you did', it's much better than the hart & co ep...
still really loving cbh & mvh diary notes...they still add that little extra perspective, its a great twist, unlike any other stories or other authors i've read...you give this fic more life, by going the extra mile...so thank you... Caroline, Melbourne, Australia.

Loved loved loved this. Thank you! I hated the way so much was left unclear in season 6.. How They made Booth look so clueless and so not in control of his own life! You've given ME closure :)

I love when Brennan gets all territorial with Booth! I wish we'd see it more often.
| mendenbar chapter 94 . 2/23
Do some more of these "we haven't seen them" stories. They make a nice change from the cases and we learn more about B&B. I would like to have been a fly on the wall both when Booth sent the neighbor packing and when Brennan sent her really packing.

Russ had a hell of a nerve saying Booth wasn't good enough for Brennan and that he seemed erratic. Coming from Russ that's pretty ironic. Especially since he hadn't seen his sister in over 15 years before Booth brought them together.
