Oh, how perfect. The complex back-and-forth of their relationship, the dialogue, the simple way Bones reduces the world to precise, process-able bites. The perfect Caroline and her quickness. Lovely.

Nicely written; as per usual, you've kept everyone very much in character. And I always thought that Brennan's actions in that episode realistically should have had some form of consequences.

"You will make absolutely certain he never cuts his own hair again, do you hear me?"
That's Caroline, straight to the point.
"Suddenly he knew that his initial, knee-jerk fury was the right response in its own way. He could give her a show because that's what she'd expect. It would give her something to respond to, something that couldn't be mistaken ever, not even as she over-thought everything, scrutinizing for a recrimination or a criticism."
I love the idea that he's purposefully reacting in a way that will help her - even though he is starting to recognize that they have a point.
"So, since I'm stuck with Zack tomorrow, please tell me you've talked to him?"
"I have. He mentioned that you carry a gun without a single reminder from me." This time her smile was real.
Hee. That made me laugh.
And of course, the affirmation:
Booth grinned back. "We're quite the team, no matter what."

Realistically, there would have been consequences to her actions. Love how you handled Caroline here- really great characterization. That's a real strength in your writing.

Love this - particularly Booth pausing outside her office and realising exactly what he needed to do to make her feel a little better (plus the acknowledgement that these things they do have consequences).

I love a story that revolves around the lengths Booth or Brennan go to to please or help each other! I thought it was great that Booth wanted Caroline to help fix things even though he had to have known she couldn't. I find his willingness to ask for (demand) help really sexy given how competant he is. Moments I especially liked...Booth watching her through her office window, noticing that he finally got a smile out of her,conversing with her in his head,manhandling lawyers. :-) another great one!

Always wondered if there would be any repercussions from that little event. Now I know.

The thing that I love about this story is that Booth knows there is so little he can do, so he wants to give her the one thing he can: outrage. Even if they both know it has to be this way for now, he wants her to know completely that he's with her on this. And I love him for that.
Also, you write a nice Caroline. I could hear her in my head. :)
