Home Delivery

He answers the door wearing jeans and a long-sleeved t-shirt. Brennan tries to envision a younger Seeley Booth – a soldier; the image doesn’t materialize.

“This is for you,” she says, and thrusts the package at him. The words are abrupt, unceremonious, dropping between them with a thud.

His eyes widen. Even as she turns to go, his free hand shoots out to stop her. “Hey, wait a sec.” Foil crinkles as he retracts it. She searches his face, warmed by his crooked smile. “It’s a pie.”

“Apple, to be exact,” she says.

“You made this?”

“Yes.”

“Thanks, Bones.”

“You can’t say that.”

“Huh?”

“Thank you is what I’m supposed to say,” she explains.

“You’re talking past me, Bones.”

She sighs. “It’s Veterans Day.”

“I know.”

“So this pie is my way of conveying my thanks to you, a living veteran.”

Booth’s eyes soften. “What? No lecture on the anthropology of war?”

“Not today.” She smiles.

“I know you say you hate pie, but you’ve gotta make an exception today. Come in, will ya?” He scratches his neck, looking away. “Unless you’ve got other plans…”

“I don’t.”

“Good.” He tugs her inside. “‘Cause I just made a fresh pot of coffee.”

I can't stop smiling. This is just so... THEM. That is awesome! Hee!!! He's still trying to seduce her with baked goods!

I think this was wonderful, and I can hear their voices in my head! I loved this line: Brennan tries to envision a younger Seeley Booth – a soldier; the image doesn’t materialize.

but this one was my favorite: “You’re talking past me, Bones.” I can hear the loving exasperation in his voice and see his expression in my head. You capture the two of them so perfectly. Thanks so much for sharing this!




Ah... Thank you so very much for leaving such wonderful feedback! I'm so pleased you enjoyed this. :)

I can hear the loving exasperation in his voice and see his expression in my head.

Yes, "loving exasperation" is exactly it. Oh, how I love those two. They talk over and past each other and yet, somehow, they just work. ;)

Oh my, so wonderful. *sighs* Every little thing you pack in creates a picture that's just completely Brennan and Booth.

My favorite: Booth’s eyes soften. “What? No lecture on the anthropology of war?”

“Not today.” She smiles.


Perfect. :)

Huge thanks for the feedback. I'm thrilled this seemed like them to you. :)

Brennan makes a pie for Booth. Yay. It's cute.

"What? No lecture on the anthropology of war?"
She will surprise him always :D

Lovely. Like always.

Besos

LOL Yes, she always surprises him. *g*

Hugs, my dear. Thank you for reading and commenting.

I love this. You have Veterans Day today? We have Remembrance Day too. On the news they showed the last three surviving British Great War vets. Incredible!

I am always moved on this day.

This was perfect Brennan and Booth. I loved this:

“Thanks, Bones.”

“You can’t say that.”

“Huh?”

“Thank you is what I’m supposed to say,” she explains.


That seemed spot-on Brennan :)


Yes, Nov. 11th was Veterans Day here. Until this year, I hadn't heard of Remembrance Day.

On the news they showed the last three surviving British Great War vets. Incredible!

I imagine that was pretty amazing to see.

That seemed spot-on Brennan :)

Yay! Thank you; your opinion means a lot to me. :)

You always capture them perfectly. A lovely little piece.

♥ You are too kind. Thank you!

I just posted about Armistice Day on my journal and then here you are with something warming and apropos.

Oh, the vagaries of coincidence! Thank you for reading and commenting.

So lovely, I can smell it!
Another great one!

So lovely, I can smell it!

Man, I wish someone would show up at my door with a freshly-baked apple pie. *g*

Thanks, Space!

excellent. you've got these two down pat! (I love the way he's always trying to seduce her with pie. Of course, she'd deny it, but she seduces him with food, too!) :-)

Oh yes, it's mutual seduction with those two. *g*

And thank you very much. Your comments never fail to brighten my day. ♥

Pie...is amazing. And now she's seducing him with baked goods. And I very much like the idea that Brennan would do something for Booth on Veteran's Day. I don't think she would have done it in season one, but I think she would now. Which is now making me ponder the growth of fictional characters.

I can't wait for tomorrow!

Yup, I agree that she probably wouldn't have done it in S1.

Which is now making me ponder the growth of fictional characters.

*g* That is always fun. It's pretty neat to see how they've all changed over the seasons...


This. Is. Amazing.

I can see Brennan making a pie and going to Booth's house and giving him pie to say 'Thank you.' You just have amazing characterization.

Aww... Thank you very much. I'm really happy that you could imagine Brennan doing this for Booth. :)

awww this is lovely. Brennan making pie to Booth even though she hates it. Happy day to veterans!

Oh, the things we do for the people we love. ;)

Thanks for commenting.

I LOVE THIS SO MUCH.

You capture them so perfectly.

*smishes you* Thank you, honey. So glad you liked this.

What a beautiful piece, L! I love the idea that Brennan honors Booth on this day.

“Thanks, Bones.”

“You can’t say that.”

“Huh?”

“Thank you is what I’m supposed to say,” she explains.


Oh, you've nailed it. This seems like exactly what Brennan would say to him. Thank you for sharing this with all of us!

Thank you, honey. :) I'm very happy you liked this. The slight social awkwardness and the deliberateness that is sometimes present in how Brennan interacts with folks make her an extremely fun character to write.

How much fun! What a lovely veteran's day tribute! Yay lero! And nicely in character and amusing as always! *hearts*

Thank you very much; Veterans Day is an important day. I'm glad you found this one amusing. :)

The idea of Brennan overcoming her personal views on the subject in honor of Booth is a very nice one. And YAY!!!! for Brennan coming around and trying to seduce Booth with pie now: she could have picked ANYTHING, but she picked pie--coincidence? I *think* not...
Lovely!

she could have picked ANYTHING, but she picked pie--coincidence? I *think* not...

*g* My lips are sealed.

As always, thank you for reading and commenting!

Loved this. Short and sweet and so B/B. I'm catching up on all the other things you've written recently and it's just pure love :)

Why thank you! It always makes me happy when someone thinks the characters in my fics seem like the characters we've come to know and love. :) Thanks for taking the time to read and comment; it's so appreciated. ♥

Wonderful! You always capture THEM...just how they are.

That is such a nice comment; thank you SO much. :)

Very beautiful and sweet and just sooooo B&B. Thanks!

I'm glad you thought this was like B&B. :) Thanks for reading and commenting.

Oh, I loved that. It says so much when you make something for someone that you don't like yourself.

Glad you liked this. :) Thanks for letting me know that.

It says so much when you make something for someone that you don't like yourself.

Absolutely!
