I think you handled this beautifully. And gave Brennan her due, as well. I've never understood how Angela, as insightful as they made her seem, could not get Brennan's motivation/process at first. Maybe she was still just figuring her out, but still...it didn't even take Booth that long.
I just love this series. I get all excited when it pops into my inbox. :)

A very good strong chapter.

I liked how there was some Brennan POV in the 1st and 2nd chapters; that would be cool to see (things like how Angela seems to be the only person she ever shared personal details about her life with in the beginning, before Booth 'got her out of the lab' and began to share the role of confidant/BF). Really like the idea and the story. Hope to see a few more ch.s :)

As sad and awful as dealing with a dead child can be, you handled it very sensitively and very true to the characters. The parallels between Angela's implications of coldness and Booth's early misunderstanding of Brennan and how deeply she buries her feelings, the true to Brennan "I don't matter - the victim does" statement... All well done.

Hi - I am really liking this story - I'm presuming we will have more Booth later on? Your writing is of a very high standard and very atmospheric if you get what I mean - loving the way you are filling in the blanks - the bits that were only mentioned or implied - though you would have a mission for life if you think of the gaps there always seem to be in the Bones series - they always leave me wanting more or asking questions (metaphorically) I'm very intrigued to see where you take this story. Merry Christmas to you and yours.

It's been a very hard, emotional day... A very long and sad day... I completely understand how difficult a choice it was to move ahead (and you could have held back). That said, the distraction was really welcome. Sometimes, in other darkness lies escape from the darkness just outside the door.
I think it's clever how you've worked in El Salvador and tried to shape how Peter came to an end, since he kinda just went out the door in the Pilot.
Take care of yourself my dear, and I will answer your PMs soon.

I love your writing. Love it.
And I don't think I've ever read any story like this one. Great job! I'm waiting for you to tackle Doctor in the Photo. :)

Oh my, you were right about the timing. Good call. Handled very sensitively.
This was yet another insightful chapter. I cannot tell you how excited I get when I see another chapter in my inbox. I am really enjoying the way you're weaving their friendship like a new, cozy blanket. It's just lovely.
Looking forward to more soon!

You're doing a great job so far! Believable and it's lovely to read this and get an insight that may be canon. At least it's believable enough for canon. So, don't give up. You're off to a good start!

Oh, wow. I love the ending. I enjoyed the entire chapter, from Brennan discovering her ability to "see" to the reference to her own time in a car trunk. But Angela calling her out - "Gemma doesn't care, you do." and her bargain with her - and why she even stuck around when she was so eager to go to Paris - is just beautiful and loving. Friendship is wonderful. You are wonderful!

Love this story!

Nicely done! I love the insights you give into Brennan's thought processes, it sort of ties everything together and lets you look at the world through "her" eyes.
( Yes, I am aware she is a fictional character : ) But hey - she's a fictional character with feelings...)

It would not surprise me in the least if this is exactly how it happened. Incredibly well done. I loved every word of this chapter.

"Absently, she rattled off something about synergy and having sex, which accomplished her goal."
I totally KNOW she does that shit on purpose! There's an innocence to Brennan sometimes, IMO, in the way she approaches the world from a different angle. But sometimes, I absolutely believe she knows what she's doing.
I love the "behind the scenes" peeks you write for Brennan's thought process. Just love them.
