Author has written 11 stories for Bones, and Fifty Shades Trilogy.
Hello! Thank you for reading and reviewing my stories!
Update 10/5/19: You can now find my original published novels on Amazon and Kindle Unlimited! My pen name is Christi Whitson, which you may notice I have adapted here as well. The Constant Flame Duet (formerly Ember) is complete, and all three stand-alone books in my Fates Aligned series were once fanfiction plot bunnies! If you enjoy my fanfiction, you’re sure to love my originals just as much if not more. And if you're like me, who got into fanfiction mostly because it was free, don't let the money dissuade you. My e-books are never more than a couple bucks a piece, and I even give Advanced Reader Copies (free) in exchange for honest reviews on Amazon and Goodreads. For more details, visit my website: christiwhitson dot wordpress dot com.
You can now find my Fifty Shades and Twilight stories at acedfiction dot wordpress dot com. (use periods and remove the spaces since FF won't allow external links) Click my name on the home page!
You can find me on FB, IG, and just about everywhere else as Christi Whitson.
Thank you for your support.
Blanket disclaimer on all things Bones: If I owned Bones, there's no way in hell we'd have had to watch six solid seasons of eye-fucking before they finally got on with it. Just saying.
Notes on Right from the Start:
Thank you to anyone and everyone who have helped me recall details that I wanted to work into my plot. You were a huge help! Thanks also to chosenname and 5546Laura for their beta work, and pauchacottle for her on-the-go feedback!
Read this after you've read chapter 9 to avoid spoilers. A guest review for chapter 8 made me realize that some of you may have wanted me to change the details around Brennan's past coming out in court. Namely, the fact that Booth did the outing. I did consider going back to change what I'd written, but in the end I decided to leave it as is. It just felt right to me. Here's why. Yes, in this story Brennan is more open than on the show, but it really only applies to Booth (and to a lesser extent, Angela). I don't believe that even my version of Brennan would have been comfortable bringing up her past to a courtroom full of strangers. And I didn't want to have Stires do it either because I like to think that he doesn't know about it in the first place. I like to think that she never trusted him with her story, so he couldn't have done it. And lastly, I think the fact that Brennan forgave Booth on the show was a major character development and needed to be included in this story. With anyone else, she might have just written them off and moved on from them, but not Booth. I think the way I wrote it does make it easier for her to forgive though.
I took a little creative liberty with Brennan's foster care experiences for a few reasons. The number of homes (9) is based on her saying that she'd been to 12 schools by the time she graduated high school. Since we know that she started high school while her parents were still around, I'm presuming that she also went to one elementary school and one middle school. Hence, at least 9 other homes. I could be wrong, but I don't think she ever said on the show how many homes she had. If she did, and I blacked it out, please let me know! As for her experiences, I know that the only real story we ever got was the trunk incident. But that's not much to go on in a fic of this size, so I elaborated a bit. And these details will come up again. I chose to play it up for a reason, and you can expect it to come back up in the sequels. :)
Notes on Making Things Right:
Thank you to my fantastic beta, chosenname. She has been a humongous help throughout the creative process, and I would be completely lost without her! If you have questions on anything regarding this story (or any others, for that matter), please PM me or message me on twitter.
Notes on Hearts in Overdrive:
Thanks once again to my friend and beta, chosenname, as well as my readers and reviewers for all of the wonderful feedback! I especially appreciate the requests to continue my creative process through all twelve seasons of the show. You over-estimate my stamina! I'm glad you've enjoyed this series, but I think that going any further with it could get tedious. Especially since my characters have evolved far beyond their canon counterparts.
There is an epilogue of sorts for the RFTS series that consists of 7 one-shots. They are posted on their own as opposed to being tacked onto the end of HIO. Stay tuned, and make sure you follow me if you want to be notified of when I post anything new. Target Confirmed is an AU story bringing BB together in the military/pre-Jeffersonian years.
"You love someone, you open yourself up to suffering. That's the sad truth. Maybe they'll break your heart; maybe you'll break theirs and never be able to look at yourself the same way. Those are the risks. That's the burden. Like wings, they have weight. We feel that weight on our backs, but they are burdens that lift us. Burdens which allow us to fly." - Temperance Brennan
