Title: Seconds
Word Count: 200
Characters:
Booth, Brennan
Spoilers: For Santa in the Slush
Rating:
K
Story Notes:
The following is a double drabble—200 word vignette—set in the future
A/N: Thought I'd shoot for something a bit lighter this time. I also wanted to keep it heavy on the dialog to see how that worked. Don't expect too much from this; it's just a bit of wish fulfillment. :)

"You can't be serious about that guy, Bones."

"Why not? Robert is a solid candidate."

“See, that's not how you should describe someone you're dating. He's all wrong for you.”

“How so?”

“For starters, he's way too serious.”

“Seriousness can be a sign of sincerity, Booth.”

“Maybe. But you need someone who makes you laugh, balances you out.”

“Hm. What else?”

“That guy—”

“Robert.”

“Whatever. Bob's a wimp. You need someone who'll keep you on your toes. You're too much woman for good ol' Bob.”

“What kind of woman is that?”

“You know—independent, outspoken.”

“That's how you perceive me?”

“Well, yeah.”

“Thank you.”

“It's not a compliment. Just how I think of you.”

“Thank you anyway.”

“You're welcome.”

“So, where do you suggest I find this paragon of manhood?”

“You're looking at him.”

“I think you forgot something important—physical attraction. Even if you fulfill the other requirements, I'm not attracted to you.”

“Liar.”

“Kissing you was like kissing Russ.”

“That's just wrong on so many levels.” He leans in until his lips brush her ear. “I say we try a little experiment. I dare you to kiss me now and not like it.”

“I thought you'd never ask.”

 


*bounces*

Your Bones and Booth are *love*.


Hey, two things: (1) thank you and (2) here is another glimpse of John Sheppard.

You would so absolutely love him.

I cannot imagine you bouncing. For some reason, I think of you as far too dignified to bounce like a mere mortal. ;)

Your Bones and Booth are *love*

If only they were mine. *g* Thank you, though; I appreciate the sentiment. You give me more credit than I deserve. I couldn't quite decide if Booth was wildly out of character in this or not, but then I remembered the last scene of Death in the Saddle and decided this might actually be plausible. If not, I just engaged in pure wish fulfillment. Oh well! Can't win 'em all.

I just responded to your beautiful first post, and I will read your second post after I've had a chance to watch the very first episode of SGA. I am completely prepared to adore John Sheppard.



The same Brennan, always telling herself she's not attracted to Booth. :)

Liar. *g*

The nicest. Good job.

Ain't denial grand? *g*

Thanks, sweetie. Glad you enjoyed this.

Ooh! Nice exchange. But what is Brennan doing playing games with Boothy? Sneaky-sneaky... :)

*g* A little flirting never hurt anyone.

Thanks for reading and feeding.

too cute.

I'm not sure Booth would ever be that bold, but what the heck - it's too much fun.

Thanks. You know, I wasn't absolutely sure about Booth in this either, but then I thought back to his speech about "making love" in Death in the Saddle, as well as his comments about Brennan being "well-structured." I feel like he's gotten more and more direct with his comments about/to Brennan over time. The above made me think maybe this wasn't so far-fetched, especially as their relationship evolves. But hell, what do I know? ;p)

*giggles*

Absolutely LOVE the ending. And dialogue fics are great fun, if the writer can really get into the characters. Which you certainly can. And those two have the best chemistry for it, anyway.

Very. Cute.

I think they have the best chemistry for everything. *g* Yes, I am completely, irrationally, blindly besotted with Brennan and Booth.

Thanks, hon. :)

:D :D :D
Loved it!! Completely hot!

Tee! That's so like Brennan, to be considering her 'candidate' boyfriend so seriously, lol.

And Booth was very much in character. *nods* Well, in my own personal Bones, the one that plays over and over and over again in my mind *g*

Brennan's a riot. I just want to pinch her cheeks. *g*

And Booth was very much in character.

I think so, though I can certainly understand why someone might disagree.

Thanks, Piper!

I first read it over FF.net and I loved it. So I head myself to comment it here, I don't like commenting on FF.net, don't know why.

Really nice :)

Thank you, Sofi, and Happy Holidays. :)

wow that last line from Brennan was hot. Liked it.

This was so awesome on several levels. Your drabbles have the most impact I've experienced in drabbles, and this just rocked! Booth may have been a teensy weensy bit out of character, but I could just see them standing there having this argument, so points for making the Bones and Booth in my head run quite clearly! <3

Thank you. I used to really dislike drabbles, but I've really grown to appreciate both reading and writing them, over time. I'm happy you enjoyed this. :)

Thanks. You know, I wasn't sure about Booth in this either, but then I thought back to his speech about "making love" in Death in the Saddle, as well as his comments about Brennan being "well-structured." The above made me think maybe this wasn't so far-fetched, especially as their relationship evolves. But hell, what do I know? :)

Booth may have been a teensy weensy bit out of character,

Thank you for sharing your honest opinion with me. For what it's worth, I wasn't absolutely sure about Booth in this either, but then I thought back to his speech about "making love" in Death in the Saddle, as well as his comments about Brennan being "well-structured." I feel like he's gotten more and more direct with his comments about/to Brennan over time. The above made me think maybe this wasn't so far-fetched, especially as their relationship evolves. But hell, what do I know? ;p)

eeee!!! love love love.

that was so damn cute im actually bouncing up and down on my bed. no joke. i reallly am.

LOL at the image of someone bouncing while reading this. *g*

Thanks for letting me know you liked this.

Oh I love this. And I could totally picture it in my head. I think that the closer they get and more into the future we get..their relationship would evolve right along with it..so I see this as totally in character. Your drabbles are just fabulous and the best way to brighten my day. :D And do you mind if I add you as a friend? :D You're so sweet and we obviously have a lot in common. ;)

Hi, Shauna! Thank you so much. I'm thrilled we share a similar vision of what Booth and Brennan could be like over time. The seeds are already there, I think. :) And I'm so happy if my tiny drabbles have brightened any of your days. Thank you. You've brightened my days with all your comments.

And do you mind if I add you as a friend? :D You're so sweet and we obviously have a lot in common. ;)

Mind? Not at all. :) Friend away. In fact, I'll add you now. If nothing else, we share a love of Bones, and Brennan and Booth, though I suspect we have more than that in common.


skdjahsdkjhsa i want to marry all your bones drabbles, but that would be extreme polygamy. D; i love how to fit so much characterization and so many visuals into such a small space.

LOL at your comment about "extreme polygamy." *g*

i love how to fit so much characterization and so many visuals into such a small space.

What a lovely comment; thank you so much!

This is the conversation I want to see between them, hehe.
