A bit of Bones squee
Misha (DCMB 2)

My sweet, blue-eyed girl has recently learned to nap. That's allowed me to finish catching up on Bones eps.

And I still love this show.

I'm not blind to what I perceive to be its flaws, but it's like a really good friend -- and it still entertains me, makes me laugh and sigh, and makes me want to write fic.  I don't need more than that from a T V show.

Oh, show.  ♥ 

So tell me, my lovelies, who do you think Gordon Gordon was talking about in Mayhem when he mentioned a sublimated attraction?  Also, what do you think Sweets saw at the end of the ep?  I haven't made up my mind about the former, but with the latter, I think he saw what GG had said -- Booth and Brennan appear to be opposites, but that's only on the surface.  They're far more similar than they appear at first glance.

Have I mentioned that I still adore Booth and Brennan?

P.S.
Thanks and hugs to everyone, lurkers and non-lurkers alike.  :)

I'm behind on responding to comments (so what else is new?), but my standard disclaimer applies:  I'm trying my best, and if yours has gone unanswered, it's not personal.  If I have issues with you, you'll know; I'm not a fan of passive aggressive behavior.   If you have issues with me, please talk to me about them.  I swear that I'm approachable and (mostly) rational.

I ♥ ur icon! *baby!squee*

I have feet firmly planted in the TEAM BOTH camp! I know, I know - it's a total cop-out. But I can see it in different ways, from both POVs. In one I may be giving Brennan too much credit, in the other I may be giving Booth too little - but it's working for me right now and my head has finally stopped spinning from that discussion (it really went on for weeks, hon!). LOL!

Glad you're all caught up - just in time, too! And also glad you've (WE've) not lost the squee for this show. *hugs*

I have feet firmly planted in the TEAM BOTH camp!
Yes! *flies flag proudly*

icon!love

True story.

*dies from love a little* ;)

I have my faith in Bones back ♥ They're so cute.
I'm not sure who Gordon Gordon was talking about, but I think that's what makes it so awesome.

And btw, I couldn't leave a comment to the fiter entry 'cause my mother needed the computer, but... Me wants to be on it! I love hearing my sister's stories/thoughts/etc about my nephew, I know I'll love yours :)

*points up*

And, pretty much, what she said.

Season finale is next week - but tomorrow's ep looks to be very pivotal! And any chance of you doing any more Bones manips? I have a cap I'd love for you to have a gander at, if you think there's any possibility?!?!?! *winning smile*

Before Gordon Gordon made that comment and before seeing that last scene, I would have put all my money on Booth. But there's just something about the way Brennan's looking at him that catches my eye. There's a hint of longing there, I think. If I didn't know anything about what's coming(even spoiler freebies have been unable to escape this one), I'd be more solid in my switch to think it's Brennan. But I'm not sure. Part of me still lingers on thinking it has to be Booth. However, considering how long we've gone without the two of them confronting the issue has me wondering if maybe he's been more in denial than we've realized.

I guess it's just too easy for me to see it coming from both of them. I don't think that in the end it will be both, but right now I don't feel confident giving a definitive answer. As I type this, I'm leaning towards Brennan. A few hours from now, I may be back to Booth. I've been jumping a lot, lol. Nonetheless, I think the next couple of weeks season finale(how'd that happen??) and the beginning of next season will probably tell the tale.

A) That icon may be the most adorable thing ever.

B) YAY for napping sweetness and catching up.

C) I am totally of the same conclusion that that's what Sweets saw. I still have no definite theory about who GG was referring to though.

D) So glad you're still enjoying it! (((Hugs))) you.

I will always love this show and Booth/Brennan.

I want to firmly be on Team Booth (heh), but I can also see that it may be Brennan. And I do think Sweets realized that B/B have more in common that he thought.

I'm trying to remain spoiler-free, but from promos and hints, I think I hope I'm not disappointed. I'm mighty nervous about these next two eps.

Love this show!

Like others I was sure Booth was in denial and argued a case. Weeks later I'm not so sure who Gordon means.

I was teetering on denial myself about my love for the show, but the last few episodes have glossed over the many failings of season 4. I'm going to try a marathon viewing over half term to see if they improve en masse rather than good one week blergh the next. It seems at least 3 years sinc Yanks in the UK aired.

Still trying to be spoiler free.
*fingers in ears la la la I'm not listening*

While I have no idea what you're talking about vis-a-vis GG, but back in the day I would have said he was referring to Booth's latent bisexuality. :D Now that should make you laugh!

I would have said he was referring to Booth's latent bisexuality.

*g* Well, if we're talking sublimated attraction... Say, what about that BooHo? *looks at you pointedly*

I just arrived home and have a few things to do, but before that...

TEAM BOOTH!!

I mean, I think he's the one that has to fight those feelings more than Brennan. It's not that she doesn't feel anything, but does much better hiding feelings, or convincing herself she's not in love. ;)

We talked about this once in TT's journal, I could search the post later. :)

*hugs*

Hee! See below :)

Booth and Brennan <3

Icon <3

Yay for napping babies and Bones ♥

Re: what GG saw? I think he saw Booth struggling with the fact that he is fully aware he is attracted to Brennan (and more) and not being able to do anything about it right now, as he knows she is not ready.

Extensive discussion here from just after the ep aired!

I got this from Booth's little look of panic when Sweets smiled and said he thought he saw what GG did, and from the fact that Brennan was there to comfort Sweets and Booth laid it all out there only for her. It was like confirmation: Yes peoples, you were all right. He LURVES her.

Not that I don't agree that they have more in common than people realise.

I ADORE that scene :)

who do you think Gordon Gordon was talking about in Mayhem when he mentioned a sublimated attraction?

I say Brennan. And that's all because I'm late for uni. Reeeally late. I'll come back later tonight. :)

Your icon is lovely and I'm very glad to hear read you squee about Bones! Even for a bit.

I went around and around with these questions and I think GG was talking about Booth. Booth is the self-aware one - Bones is the most oblivious woman on the planet. Only he could be aware enough of the attraction to fight it. I've waffled on this alot but i think this is my final answer :).

Sweets I think just finally got them. Like a light bulb finally clicked on for him, about what the heart of their relationship really was.

I love this show too :)

If you're interested some past discussion on the eps, I have them tagged with "bones".

I think the last 6 or so eps have been stellar. Really excellent.

And I think GG was talking about Booth for exactly the reasons TT lays out above. Booth really looks like he's about to come undone in that scene.

I think Booth has known he has a thing for Brennan since about 30 seconds after he clapped eyes on her, and then when she first opened her mouth to argue with him, he was completely gone. He's just been waiting and waiting and waiting. She thinks he sexy and a dear friend, but she cannot imagine anything else because she's afraid of losing his friendship.

but it's like a really good friend -- and it still entertains me, makes me laugh and sigh, and makes me want to write fic. I don't need more than that from a T V show.

I totally love what you said here, and I agree 100%. I adore the characters and just want to be entertained. &hearts

And I'm with Space above, with feet firmly planted in 'team both'. :)
