Okay, so this is the sweetest B/B story I've ever read. I loved your take on the note- so much more realistic then other 'note-reveling' fics I've read. Your note was completely Temperance Brennen- not mushy but she got her feelings and point across. Please update this soon as I need the next part right now!

Thank you so much. That's very kind of you to say. I'm touched. :)

You know, as much as the sappy romantic in me would die of joy if Brennan expressed her epic love for Booth in that note, I just can't see her doing it. I don't doubt that she has feelings, but I don't think she would have revealed them then, in that way. I'm glad my take on the note worked for you.

omg i remember back in the days of aliens in spaceship how disappointed i was because we did not get to see what Brennan or Hodgins wrote in that supposed goodbye letters. this gives a whole new twist to it. thank you! Those words are so in character, really. And i felt that Booth was very good portrayed also especially when he went to the bookshelf and started looking for her books, it's so like Booth to go and act like if he's lookin for some kind of evidence...

anyway, great job. :)

Thanks, Sofi! I'm glad you thought both Brennan and Booth were in character here. :)

Well, you already know that this is my favorite fic of yours. I just love the interaction between a sick!Brennan and nurse!Booth. I was laughing to myself when he kissed her, and wondered if he was going to catch whatever bug she had. It'd be interesting to see if she would take care of him if he got sick... especially after seeing a tiny bit of her nurturing side in last night's episode.

You raise some interesting questions, Michelle. Hm...

Thanks for reading and commenting. Hope you had a relaxing Thanksgiving! :)

At first I missed some dialogue between them, but when came the dedication-book-note part it all turned that sweet. Your-fics sweet, I mean.

Look, Booth also dedicates something to Brennan. ::points at her icon:: lol

You're absolutely right; this part had much less dialogue. I felt it needed to focus primarily on Booth and what was going on inside him. I'm glad you still thought it was sweet, though it's perfectly ok to let me know if you didn't like it. :)

Your icon is very cute. And Booth definitely does dedicate that smile to his lady scientist. ;)

Thanks for reading and feeding!

I just read this whole thing and I love it! So much fluff I almost can't handle it. Almost ;)

Can't wait for more XD

OH I forgot to ask" Is that first pic in your header a manip?

Thank you! I'm so glad you're enjoying this story. :) My humble opinion is that everyone needs a little fluff in their diet. Tastier than fiber. *g*

Nope, that first pic isn't a manip. It's from this past week's episode, which was titled The Knight on the Grid.

Thanks, Emily! Glad you're enjoying this.

Thanks for offering to answer questions about Catholicism; I appreciate it. :)

First of all, I love the fact that your updates are always really looong chapters :) Makes me feel all special-like
Great update. I've said it before (I think. Or maybe I just thought it...) but your characterisations are down pat. I don't so much *read* the story as see it unfold in my mind, like an episode. Always a sign of great writing!
Can't wait for the next update.

Thank you, Piper. Re: chapter length, I'm at a point now where unless I'm deliberately trying to write something short, like a drabble, I generally won't post an update unless it's at least 1500 - 2000 words long.

I don't so much *read* the story as see it unfold in my mind, like an episode. Always a sign of great writing!

*blushes* If that's the case, I'm very pleased. Thanks for your amazingly sweet comment. :)

aww i love it!
its one of my favourits!
watiting for the next part lol

:) Thanks for letting me know this is one of your faves. I'm flattered and happy that you like it so much.

Awww,i so absolutely love this. Just caught up on it all in one reading,and i couldn't have spent a better 10 mins as far as im concerned.

You write so well! And Booth/Brennan are so cute *wubs*

Cant wait to read more!!

Oh and i went to a catholic high school for 4 yrs but im actually Christian (seventh day adventist) But i might be able to help with any questions you have anyway :)

I appreciate your being willing to answer questions about Catholicism.

Thanks for reading and feeding!

Amazing. This is really amazing ♥ Love is in the air! Even with all those virus floating around! :D

Thank you for being such an awesome writer! I'm looking forward the next chapter!

Thank you so much! I'm happy you like this story. And yes, there seems to be lots of stuff in the air. ;)

Wow I really liked this story! Especially since I'm sick at the moment, too ;) Anxiously waiting for the next chapter :)
Oh and btw I'm Catholic (baptised at least, not religious at all but I think I know things)

I'm glad you like this so far. :) Thanks for letting me know that. Sorry to hear you're sick; hope you feel better soon. And I appreciate your being willing to answer questions about Catholicism.

Thanks for reading and feeding!

oh, sorry, forgot my mail. it's johanna.oltmann@gmx.net


YAY! Am a happy girl. Was wondering what she wrote during AiaS (I was a mess for days after that - like, not kidding at all. Weird and jumpy and scared of everything. Bloody Emily and TJ) and I think you did pretty well. Personally, I think she would have written her full name, even with the time issue.


Now. There must be a little eensy bit more smuttiness in this next chapter. I know, I know - don't tell you your job! But come on, there's bathing! I know this is fluff but... BATHING!!!!!!!

Loved it, as usual. But am kinda jonesing for the smut, as you can see. Ha ha, I'm a teenage boy.


Woman, you're greedy. ;) I've written and posted more than 20,000 words of Bones fic so far this month!

Emily and TJ were AWESOME in AiaS; I'm not surprised that episode stayed with you the way it did.

You know, I didn't not write her as signing her full name because of the time issue. I did it more because I envisioned her thinking it wouldn't be quite right to sign it "Bones," but she also wasn't comfortable signing it Temperance because that's not how he addresses her. So T.B., followed by the P.S., was a compromise. But thanks for sharing your thoughts with me. That is, of course, a totally valid opinion.


Though, to be fair, he didn't kiss her on the mouth. It was a pretty chaste kiss, and one that spoke of affection rather than sexual intent, I think.

Why am I not surprised to see you begging for smut? :P I can't promise you anything because it's not up to me. But there's got to be some shower lovin' at some point, in some story. ;) I can promise you that much.

Thanks for reading and feeding and being your usual crazy self. :) *hugs*

Words cannot express how much I love this <3 And ironically so, I'm sick right like Brennan but this fic has made me feel a whole lot better, lol! No really, it's rather amazing ;) It's so sweet and tender and perfectly in-character. Fluffy Bones fics really do work a lot of the time because the show ITSELF is pretty flufftastic already ;D Argh! What else? The note. That was gorgeous. I love your idea of what it said. It was very believable and the tone was just so Brennan. I'm glad that didn't get too mushy and yet it was all kinds of squee-worthy anyway. Love it! I'm hoping for more soon, but take your time :D

Thank you very much for taking the time to let me know you're reading and enjoying this story. Comments are the only means I have of knowing that someone's reading any of my fics.

Sorry to hear you're sick, but I'm thrilled if you felt even a tiny bit better after reading what's currently posted of Unwell. :) And you're right, there is a lot of fluff in the show itself.

I'm so happy you think I got Brennan's note right. You're right, it wasn't mushy. But I thought her affection for Booth, Angela, and even Zack was evident—to anyone who knew her well—which Booth certainly does.

Thanks again for reading and feeding; you made my day! :) Feel better soon.
