Angela doesn't try as hard to push them together now as she did before. Not because she doesn't still think Brennan should dip her fingers in that tasty FBI pie. But it's begun--without too much help from her.

Brennan stopped saying, "Don't call me Bones," a while ago, and there's no reason why Booth keeps resting his hand at her back.

Angela knows love when she sees it; she sees it whenever she wakes to find Jack looking at her with those eyes she can never quite capture no matter how many shades of cobalt, manganese, thalo, and ultramarine she mixes in her palette.

They're arguing, and God, it really is hot, so she puts down her pencil, folds her arms over her chest, and stops to watch. It should be illegal to stand that close to someone you're not fucking, but there Booth stands, crowding her best friend with that big body of his and eyeing her like he wants to bend her over one of the stainless steel worktables.

She catches Jack's eye and tilts her head in their direction. "Check them out," she mouths, and he just smiles and shakes his head, curls dancing over his forehead.


A/N: I have no idea where this came from, and I'm not sure how I feel about it.

I think the next update will be for something longer.


I've been lurking, reading all of your lovely fic for some time now. I enjoy it all very much, and today it's particularly this line:

It should be illegal to stand that close to someone you're not fucking

That's exactly how I feel about someone in particular. Brilliant.

Welcome, and thanks for de-lurking. :)

*g* I'm glad you liked that sentence; it seemed appropriate.

Thank you for taking the time to read and comment. :)

Lovely icon, btw. DB and ED?

OMG, but this is so. true. So very, very, true.

I LOVE these lines, especially:
...there's no reason why Booth keeps resting his hand at her back.

and this:"....so she puts down her pencil, folds her arms over her chest, and stops to watch...... She catches Jack's eye and tilts her head in their direction. "Check them out," she mouths, and he just smiles and shakes his head, curls dancing over his forehead.</i>

Oh, but I wish, I wish I could see this in an episode, because I can already see this in my head!!

::loves::

Thank you! I think it's the kind of scene we could actually get. :)

I feel like this should be in an episode :)

that's a perfect Angela and i love it! xD

Thanks, Kiska. I'm happy that bit seemed Ange-like to you. :)

And what a lovely icon it is. :)

Thanks, Asra. Angela is a lovely person in her own right, and her friendship with Brennan is heartwarming.

I love Angela knowing way more about their feelings than they do.

*g* Gotta love denial.

Thank you for reading.

I like it. I especially like the line:

It is a really electric line and it just sticks out brilliantly.

Thank you very much! I'm glad you liked that sentence. It seemed like something Angela might think. ;)


Nice again...I love it that you write so much How do you manage? lol I can't even get one fic at a time off the ground without trouble.

Thank you, as always.

I love it that you write so much How do you manage?

Um, to be honest, I make myself. I just force myself to write; it's a non-negotiable thing--like brushing my teeth. *g*

You always manage to pick up on things which are there in the show but I haven't really considered. This fic is right on the money!

Thank you! You've made my day with that comment. :)

I think it's cute, nice and Angela is always right about them. You definitely captured so well that moment, what B&B desire, what Angela thinks, and her complicity with Jack.

I often think about Brennan stopping saying 'Don't call me Bones', what if Booth asked her why she did? Would she have an answer that didn't compromise/reveal her feelings? Am I understandable at all? ;)

I'd love to read anything of your longer series. :) Not that I think that you SHOULD, but I'd love to. ;)

Thanks!

I understand exactly what you meant. Hmmm... That's actually an interesting idea. She could always insist that she just got used to the name and therefore stopped noticing his use of it, but I don't think he'd believe her anyway. ;)

Oh I don't know; it seems quite generous to me. And writing longer? Seems even more generous.

btw I had a thought about an area you may explore. Why does Booth have some of the tee shirts he wears? Guys and Dolls and the gambling ones I can inderstand, but there are others where I think 'Thereby hangs a tale. I wonder what it is?' Other than they are David's own.

Thanks, Sara. It was fun to return to Unwell. :)

That's an excellent idea! Thank you for sharing it with me.

First of all, the characterization? Rocking hard! So Angela and Hodgins!

Second.. maybe you're not sure how to feel about this one but no problem because we still love it :D

I like seeing Angela happy, and she certainly seems to be happy with Jack. He's a sweetie. :)

::hugs:: And thank you!

"tasty FBI pie" oooh... Booth is pie... mmm heh
loved this =]

Yup, he is a tasty morsel. *g*

Glad you liked this. :) Thanks for stopping in and commenting!

"It should be illegal to stand that close to someone you're not fucking, but there Booth stands, crowding her best friend with that big body of his and eyeing her like he wants to bend her over one of the stainless steel worktables."

Love how you took his disregard for her personal space and turned it into something so hot. He stands too close all the time on the show, and it's great to see from Angela's POV.


Thanks, Doc. :) He's always "up in her grille." *g* Of course Angela would notice something like that.

I love how Angela is the ultimate B/B shipper. :P

*g* She just wants Brennan to be happy.

Thank you for reading this!
