Thanks for reading, and for visiting!
About Me: I'm relatively new to the world of fanfic, as a reader or a writer, but the latest season of Bones left me with questions, and fanfic seems to have at least helped rest the need for answers. I'm certainly enjoying learning my way around this genre! I'm a mom and a professor (humanities-not forensic anthropology!) at a small liberal arts college.
TV Shows: Bones, Fringe, Lost, Alias, Glee
Books: Lord of the Rings, Jane Austen, historical fiction, contemporary fiction
Writing about Bones: I've been watching Bones since my parents got me hooked while my daughter was a nursing infant in 2009. We used to joke that I'd accidentally trained her to sleep for 42 minutes (the length of an episode) at a time, but then I learned that the average baby sleep cycle is 45 minutes. Regardless, it was pretty convenient to hold a sleeping baby and watch a great show! One of my favorite parts of the show is the witty dialogue between Booth and Bones. I love how it's tense and sexy and you'd think would make them fall apart, but instead the bickering helps them thrive. B&B say so much to each othe in words -- and when they don't use words, silence speaks even more loudly.
Over the course of this summer 2011 hiatus, I'm rewatching all the episodes, and when the mood strikes me, I'll probably write a short fic inspired by one. I'm thinking of these as "continuing the conversations" between B&B. They'l likely remain in-canon and (hopefully!) in-character. Those ending scenes between B&B so often leave me wanting more, to hear and see more of these characters. What did they say before that moment that allowed the moment to happen? How are they going to get out of this one, one more time, without jumping each other (so to speak)? Or could that really have been a moment that went somewhere? I see my fics and my imaginings as trying to stay in-character and in-canon (so far), as a way of exploring the characters and what makes their "surrogate relationship" work. As a shipper, though, I want to see just how close they can come to crossing the line, again and again, without ever quite doing so. If you'd like to follow along, I'd welcome you to do so!
