Prompt: Brennan and Angela, after they've been told of Booth's death.


“I’m sorry,” said the doctor.  The two words tightened the vice in Brennan’s stomach.  “Agent Booth died on the operating table.”

Angela gasped and covered her mouth, her other hand reaching for Brennan’s as Hodgins stepped in behind her. 

“What?  No.”  Brennan shook her head, hair whipping around her face.  “He was stable.”

“There were surgical complications.”

“I want to see him.”  The words came out in a whisper.  “Now,” she said, her voice a bit stronger. 

“Unfortunately, only family is allowed inside.”

Family.  Parker.  She coughed, gagging.  How could she face him, knowing he was fatherless because of her?

A/N:  Many thanks to the folks who let me know which ficlets they'd like to see expanded.  I truly appreciate your taking the time to do that.  I asked, and you answered.  Thank you, my friends!  There's no time limit, so if anyone else would like to share their thoughts with me, please feel free to do so.

We all waited for something like this on screen. Stupid HH!!

Thank you for these bits of them. Beautifully sad.

Thank you for being such a faithful reader and commenter, G. ♥


Oh, if you could see the incoherent flailing I did when I read this. *squishes you gently*

Brennan got sucker-punched twice there - once with Booth's death, and once again with the reminder that her place in his life is so very far from official. *sigh*

You pack so much emotion into so few words. Thank you for this.


Crushed under the weight of your Twilight love? *g*

You are being way too nice. Really. But thank you. This one was especially challenging. I'm just glad you didn't throw up when you read it.

Thanks for the fab prompt, K. Now please go write something in the fandom or universe of your choice, so I can read it and squee. :)

Crushed under the weight of your Twilight love? *g*

Ooh, burn! Hee.

And my gag reflex was never an issue while reading this, silly one. So ... nyah, or something equally mature.

I'm working on it! I'm working on too many things, which is the usual problem. *salutes* I'll see what I can do, o cap'n my cap'n. ;)

*sniff* So sad! They cheated us all the emotional ramification stuff like this! Nicely done!

Thanks. Glad this worked for you. And I agree with you; sure, we know that moment and the following two weeks must have been hell, but after that setup, I think it would have been more powerful if we'd gotten to actually see a bit more of the payoff.

If this happened on the show I think we all would've been a little happier. We need some resolution.

Thanks for this :)

Excellent fill-in-the- blank!

Oh, what a great emotional punch.

Yay! It's good to see what happened.

Gosh... *sobs*

It had to have been like this, because they would have gone to the hospital, and she would have demanded to see him *dies for Brennan*

How could she face him, knowing he was fatherless because of her?

Can so imagine this being her first thought.

Thank you for another beautiful drabble!
