Author has written 3 stories for Bones.

Hello, all!

You can call me Broil, short for broilthesuspect (see Parts in the Sum of the Whole for the reference, Ep 100). My lovely husband, affectionately nicknamed Beau, calls me Belle. I am hardly worthy of the name.

I am infatuated with the romance that is B&B. I am a recent convert to Bones, having been a Grey's Anatomy fan since the beginning of the series. A friend (to whom I will be eternally grateful) turned me on to Bones and introduced me to the love of my imaginary life, Special Agent Seeley Joseph Booth.

I usually only read fanfic, but I recently finished my first fic called "The Pain in the Past." The Pain in the Past begins after the death of Vincent Nigel-Murray, but does not include the 'sleepover,' as I like to call it. After capturing Brodsky, things only go downhill as Parker and Booth's dad make appearances. I won't pretend that it is Hart Hanson material, but I believe it to be wonderful and suspenseful.

My second fic is a One Shot called "Good Enough For Me." This OS is a tag/tie-in to Critic in the Cabernet written from Booth's point of view. I always wondered what he was thinking as he sat in that hospital room waiting for Brennan to return, and now I have weaved my own assumptions into a story for all to read.

Also, I'd love to hear from you, be that a review (yes please!), a private message, or you can follow me on twitter @broilthesuspect (also on tumblr at the same name). Warning:I am dangerously candid on twitter. If you are offended by harsh language, crude discussions, and shameless objectifying of men, steer clear.

Thanks for stopping by - I hope you enjoy what I have to offer (no sexual innuendo implied).

What I Wish I Could've Said by Lesera128 reviews
Hindsight is always 20/20. Everyone has a moment where they wish they could go back & could've said something better than what they actually did. Here are some rewrites of famous BB minutes in a completely random series of short drabbles.

So what happens in the hiatus, right after the season six finale airs? This story follows them every day, starting from that last scene. Things are going to change for Booth and Brennan, but how will they handle it? This story will be updated often!

The Light Through the Dark by jsq reviews
A routine investigation leads to an abduction and an exploration of all the ways in which we can break...and all the ways in which we can be put back together. Warning: Rated M for violence, including sexual assault.

Breaking all the Rules Tonight by sleeplessinatlanta reviews

Sinking Like Stones reviews
Follow-up of sorts to my OS "Good Enough For Me." Takes place as Booth wakes up from his brain surgery at the end of S4. My take on what would happen if the neurosurgeons were not able to remove all of the tumor in Booth's brain. AU, Brennan's POV. NOTE: RATING HAS CHANGED TO M.

Good Enough For Me reviews
A short one-shot in which Booth reflects upon the hours before his brain surgery. Idea arose from my own questioning of what Booth was thinking as he searched for Brennan in the hallway before being taken to the OR. Told from Booth's POV.

The Pain in the Past reviews
After VNM's death, Brennan and Booth are forced to deal with life-changing news. What will happen when their past and a new face comes to haunt them? True to the real characters. Pre-sleepover... this is not a pregnancy fic.
