A chill wind whips against them as they trudge back to his SUV.  It whistles in Booth's ears and creeps under his sleeves, making him shiver beneath his coat.  His breath puffs out in a cloud ahead of him; he sighs and quickens his steps, pausing to shoot a dirty look at the man who steps in his path.  "Watch where you're going, buddy," he bites out.

Winter sucks.  He's tired of the gray skies and the cold that's soaked deep into his bones.  Why is he freezing his ass off in D.C. instead of lying on a beach in Miami and letting the sun warm him from the outside in?  Maybe it's time for a vacation.  A couple days of sand, sea, and booze could be exactly what he needs.

When he reaches his car, he realizes Brennan is no longer with him.  "Come on, Bones.  Hurry up."  Scowling, he turns on his heel to see what's holding her up.

She stands several feet behind him, arms outstretched.  "It's snowing," she says, and there's something in her voice that makes him glance first at the sky and then back at her upturned face.

Maybe Miami can wait a while.

Wow. I know why I like snow!fics ;)

*smiles* Thanks, Melissa.

Aww, that was sweet. I miss snow (sadly none here in Southern Cali..) but you captured a bit of the magic here and that makes me really happy :D

Aw, thanks, Ren! I'm glad this caught a bit of that feeling for you. :)

Aww this is cute. I love snowy fics ♥
Really great.
I would let Miami wait as well if I was Booth =D

Thank you, Sabi. I'm happy you enjoyed this. :)

Love vs. Miami--hardly a contest. *g*

This is lovely!

I'm afraid I can't be any more articulate about why I like it than that :)

That was plenty articulate! Thank you, Elena. :)

*nods*

You know she does a happy dance with the first snowfall every year. Just like Lorelai did in Gilmore Girls.

Because, really, who doesn't do the "First Snowfall Happy Dance" each winter?

Aside, you know, from the people who don't get snow.

Thanks for reading and commenting, Witchy.

You know, I've never seen an epi of GG. I've heard it has some fantastic banter, though.

And yes, there's something magical about snow. :)

Oh, that's so sweet. I love that moment when the snow starts to fall. There's a great amount of emotion in the piece; how do you always manage that with so few words?

I'm actually working on a Bones 'fic set in Miami; it's a crossover with Dexter.

Yes! Perfect icon, by the way.

I'm not sure I DO manage, but I try, so thank you!

Sounds interesting. I don't watch Dexter, but Michael C. Hall was fantastic on Six Feet Under. He's a talented actor.

*feels all warm & fuzzy now* =D I'm with Booth. I'd much rather be in a warm place during the winter, but I'd hang around for Brennan *or Booth* if they were happy about the snow.

*squees at your icon* Beautiful!

I'm glad this left you feeling warm and fuzzy, Jen. Thanks for commenting!

Thanks a lot, Court, and you have my sympathy re: the Pats.

something in her voice that makes him glance first at the sky and then back at her upturned face.

Aw, Brennan's all awestruck by the snowflakes.

Booth's just like the rest of us adults--too much of a card-carrying member of the 'I Hate Winter' club. Good thing he's got Brennan to show him its beauty and magic :)

I can see this double drabble; I can see it, I can see it!

And, that's so him, so very Booth.

You know, of course, that we love her because he loves her....:-)

Thank you, as always.

*smiles* Good; I'm glad.

*g*

This ends on such a cute note. : D

Although, I, like Booth, am somewhat disillusioned with snow with all the trudging around university in it and the constant uncovering of my vehicle from under mounds of it.

Actually, as I walked into a store earlier there were big fluffy snowflakes falling...it was awe-inspiring. I felt as if I were in a snow globe or something. (But then there were 4 inches on my car when I left...thus the disillusion comes again).

Snow is both pretty and a pain in the butt. *g*

This ends on such a cute note. : D

Thank you; I'm glad you thought so!


awww snowfic. you have to watch the episode love and war and snow of Gilmore girls to know why snow is really magical. *g* loved it!

Thanks, Misty. :) One of these days I'll get around to watching GG.

Maybe Miami can wait a while.
:D Anything for Brennan.

Anything for Brennan.

*g* But of course.
