This is for hoosabrat.  *g*


Like a butterfly, she magically appeared at his side, bathed in a soft, white glow that made Booth’s breath catch in his throat.

“I’ll never let go, Booth,” Brennan murmured, brushing gentle fingers across his cheek.

He sighed and reached out, intending to wrap his arms around her, but then he suddenly felt a sharp pain. “Oww!” he yelped, opening his eyes to find Brennan staring at him with a quizzical frown -- and no soft, white glow. He rubbed his forearm and tried not to whimper. “That hurt. Why’d you pinch me?” he complained, slowly sitting up on her office couch.

“I tried calling your name several times, but you were completely unresponsive.”

“So you pinched me?”

“I also considered dousing you with cold water,” she replied with a shrug.

“Gee, thanks, Bones.” Booth blinked slowly, trying to clear the sleep from his eyes.

“You’re quite welcome, Booth.”

“That was sarcasm.”

“I know.” A smirk curved Brennan’s lips, and Booth mentally braced himself for whatever she’d say next. “You were mumbling something about never letting go.” The smirk widened. “That must have been an interesting dream.”

“I have no idea what you’re talking about.”

He was never watching Titanic again.

A/N: I hope this made you smile.



lol two fics in two days with Titanic...although I don't know who did the other one. I love it :)

There was another Bones fic with a Titanic reference? That's funny. :)

Thank you for reading this, btw.

Your fanfics always make my days. Especially these days, although I have not much time to read them at the moment. I'm studying like crazy cause I have my final exams next week =S

Anyway, I really loved this one. It really made me laugh. Booth watching Titanic XD Amazing picture =D

Good luck with your exams, Sabi! And I'm glad this gave you a moment of laughter. ;)

Thank you, as always, for your kind words about my writing.

Booth watched Titanic. LOL.


He was channel surfing, and it popped up on USA. *g*

It made me smile. Mostly for picturing Booth watching Titanic.

I'm glad this made you smile, Donna. :) Thanks for letting me know that.

Your excitement is infectious, Asra. :) It IS March, and that brings us one step closer to 4/14. :) Can't wait!

Thanks for commenting.

Well she could have just nudged him or shaken him brusquely. No need to hurt the poor guy. Although if he watched Titanic he's hurting already. Even Booth's romanticism can't have survived that. Sorry, it's not a film that appeals.

btw I'm saving my thoughts on 50 Sentences until you've done them all. So far I like.

Much less satisfaction in that. :P

No need to be sorry; it's not my movie. *g*

Thanks, Sara. They've been fun and challenging to write.


ha ha ha. That was cute. hee. Nicely done :)

So cute. And Booth, Titanic is the cheesiest, worst written movie ever. Brennan will think less of you if she knows.

*g* Thanks. I don't think he's going to be the one to tell her, and I doubt she's seen the movie, so his sleep-talking probably didn't register as a snippet of dialog. Then again, who knows? ;)

He was never watching Titanic again.


teeheehee. One of these days, that man is going to talk more openly in his sleep. After that, Brennan's will either never let him sleep there again, or may have to "weigh the pros and cons". :-)

I can't wait for that day.

You're adorable, you know that? *squeezes you*

ahahaha Booth watched Titanic

You inspired me(and Will.. although the whole thing would likely have passed me by if I hadn't seen yours...)

Like a butterfly, she magically emerged from her cocoon, transformed from her dowdy former self in to something dazzling and vibrant; a beautiful creature in every sense.

And he’d like to take the credit, but really the potential had been within her all along.


*hugs you* Lovely that he realizes he can't take credit for it. :)

I was actually having a bad morning until I read this. I really needed that laugh. Thanks for that!

Hi there. :) I'm happy this served its purpose and gave you a laugh when you needed it. Thanks for taking the time to let me know that.

Hahah. I knew the imagery felt familiar. But Booth likes Titanic! Everyone likes Titanic. :D
