Enjoy the Silence

Brennan shoots him a sidelong glance that he pretends not to notice. He’s spent so many years observing, studying, cataloguing every quicksilver flash of her eyes, every curve and tightening of her lips, that it’s impossible for him to stop reading her now.

A fucking Ph.D. in Bones; that’s what Booth’s earned. Looks like he’s a squint after all.

There have always been things they don’t discuss, unless it’s in that peculiar code they’ve developed. But she hesitates more often these days, choosing her words too carefully, or worse, staying silent.

It’s his fault he’s lost his best friend.

That's because season 6 is full of gutwrenching paaaaaain, girl. I'm in the midst of writing my first ever fanfic at the mo' and it makes my *own* heart hurt. Hee.

Back to the point, though: keep 'em coming! I'm so glad to see you back to writing. This was lovely as always. My only request would be longer fics because I'm a greedy brat. :)

Wow, this is really excellent and you really capture the sad sort of moment they seem to be trapped in indefinitely. And in so few words!

Beyond the immediate squee that came from seeing you post new fic, my second thought was "eee, Anberlin!"

So true, and so well put: "A fucking Ph.D. in Bones; that’s what Booth’s earned."

Miss you, lady!

Wow. That is awesome and painful and brilliant.

A fucking Ph.D. in Bones; that’s what Booth’s earned. Looks like he’s a squint after all

Alls I can say is THIS LINE is made of epic win. and then some.
