I really like this. You cut it back from 30 parts? Boo. I can't wait for more

Another wonderful chapter! Thinking about Brennan going through all of these big moments alone is just so heartbreaking. And I knew that senator was bad news! Heh.
Once again, I'm torn between loving the chapter and being sad that we're getting so close to the end!

Your story is fantastic, I had tears when she lived with the nasty family who stuck her in the trunk, I smiled when she was offered summer classes from Jack and Nora, also smiled at the things the last foster mother did for her. Can't wait to read the rest.

Nice chapter! I liked it, even though not that much really happened in it. Well, graduation and spring break did. Ugh. Politicians. Brennan never seemed to like them. Well cant wait for your next update and the new bones episode!

I have been waiting for you too finish since I enjoy stories more when I can read them in one sitting. However, I took a peek at the last two chapters and it looks good.

Wow, this is good.
When I read that it was fully canon-compliant and that there was no Booth, I almost dropped it. The show gives just enough details to show Bones' years in care were awful, and from the style of the first chapter I could tell it would be a hard read (I mean that as a compliment).
But the writing was too good and little Temperance too believable. I love how you worked all the comments scattered through six seasons (and a half?) into this "linear" story.
Thanks for sharing!

This chapter was bittersweet on several letters. Things are going well for her, but she doesn't get to celebrate the way she would have were things different. Frau Becker is good for her, but she can only ever be second best. Temperance has accepted that her parents are dead...but only because she believes they wouldn't have left her. We all know how that turns out.
Excellent chapter- you did a great job of incorporating all we learned from the HS reunion episode.

I like that Miss Dougherty specifically selected the placement for Brennan. Like some of the kids at school, I think she was trying to do her very best by someone she really didn't understand. It was a nice compliment to Mr. Buxley- someone who really did manage to understand her. Very nice.

Grr. The Bradentons were good people- they should've given her more notice, prepared her more. I did really like how Temperance thought about what her mother would've said and accepted that she would have to be the one to say those things now. It was a quiet turning point, but it was one...and in some ways it was a universal one. We all have to do that, but she's having to do it so soon and for all the wrong reasons.

Great chapter! Im glad she got accepted into the college she wanted! But i feel bad that she feels empty inside... but things are lookimg up for her!

I knew she'd get in! :)

Finally, good things are happeming for Temperence, but by this point she's become so emotionally closed off that it barely effects her. It's so sad to watch her harden herself so completely.

Beautiful chapter. I like how Brennan's life is not easy. She's not lucky. She didn't "luck into" or "fall into" the choices that she's made to become successful. Everything was earned. I love how you portray that.

I am always so happy when I see an email telling me of an update to this story. It's been so wonderful to follow, and I must admit I'm a bit sad that it will be over soon!
This was another fantastic chapter. My chest tightened a bit when she opened the letter from NW, despite the fact she of course gets in!
I really wish they'd discuss a bit more about Brennan's time in the foster system and leading up to college. But this story fills in the gaps so perfectly!
Looking forward to your next update!
