this touched my soul :) i love it! the dyanmics of the characters, you have such a way of getting into the characters head and pulling us all in for the ride.

Oh, thank you! I so appreciate that you took the time to let me know how you felt about this fic. :)

This provided badly needed closure for me. Thank you so much.

What a lovely thing to say; thank you very much. I needed to write this, and I'm thrilled that you felt something while reading it.

*smooch* Yay, I'm happy you liked this. :) Thanks, Sam!

Oh, but this was...perfect. So what we should see in the Season 4 opener, but won't.

I love that Booth understands Brennan's deep fear that she has in some way played a part in Zach's behavior. I love that Brennan opens herself to Cam, to share the pain.

So well done, I'll probably read this several times more. (Gonna add this to yesterday's recs.)

I'm so glad this worked for you, M. Thank you very much for letting me know that. ♥

Contrary to what some think, Brennan is a woman, not a robot.

I'm honored; thanks.

Ahh, that's better :) lol.

I like this. Very well done. Thanks for sharing :)

Thank you, A. Honestly, I'm not sure anything can truly make things better on the show -- no matter how much fix-it fanfic is written. But I had to write something.

This was such a painful read, but so elegant and beautiful and sheer Brennan.

You've knit so many lovely elements together, and this passage moved me so much:

Objects had no intrinsic power; she knew that. But she couldn't help remembering her mother's earring and the loss she'd felt when she realized it was gone -- or the inexplicable hope that rose in her when Booth returned it to her. Irrational and illogical, and still, irrefutable.


And as much as Angela's words of love and friendship offer Brennan no solace, your rich lament makes the sorrow fresher. What a gift you have.

What a gift you are. Thank you for this.


Thank you, as always, for your kind words. The Pain in the Heart was such a painful episode on so many levels; it needed to be written about. And if this fic reflected any of that pain, I'm pleased.

You've knit so many lovely elements together

Thanks, especially, for saying that.

It is a lament, isn't it? That's exactly the word for it. Would that there was no need for it. :(

What a gift you are. Thank you for this.

*hugs you* Thank you so very much; your comments mean a lot to me.

'"If you knew what I know, you’d understand. You’d be proud of me," Zack said, brown eyes as clear and earnest and filled with keen intelligence as they’d ever been, pleading for her to understand how he could commit murder. Even now, she felt those eyes seeking her approval.'

So lovely I found myself sitting here, silent tears coming once again, just as they had when I watched those parts of the episode... so beautiful.

*is deeply touched by your comment* Thank you very much. ♥

This made me weepier than I was when I originally watched the episode... You capture these characters so perfectly. Thank you.

Thank you for reading -- and for your generous comments.

Thank you for both sets of comments; I appreciate them all. ♥

In my opinion there were many, many things that were off about this episode. :(

Thank you for this piece. It's perfect, it's perfect, it's perfect.

*hugs you* Thanks for your generous words; I'm so happy this piece worked for you.

P.S. Your header's making me sad. =[

I feel the same way. :(

Thank you for the lovely fic... you and all the ff writers out there are doing a wonderful job of relieving the pain with your prose. Thanks for sharing, I only hope the writers realize we'll be needing some closure come next season... until then you've served us well.

It will definitely be interesting to see how the show writers deal with the fallout from the events of the season finale.

Thank you for the lovely fic...

You're welcome; thank YOU for your generous comments.

Perhaps you ought to go apply to be a writer for the show and then we won't ever again have to endure the epic load of crap that was the finale. In fact, may I just suggest that you print this fic out and send it directly to HH and company with "TAKE A HINT" scrawled across the top.

*hugs you* Thank you for taking the time to read and comment. This ep sucked -- on a lot of levels. I'm eager to see what they do next season.

Wow.. This episode..
*sigh*
I still can't beleive what they did to Zack, but this fic, it feels right, there's a measure of.. if not closure, at least something on the road towards it. Trying to understand, I guess. I like how it's not in the big moments, but the little ones like this: He habitually reached across the divide when she could not. Occasionally, occasionally she reached back.
That's so very true of them. Gradually she's learning how to reach across too, but it takes time.
I adore the way you just know these characters and make sense of a difficult episode like this..

They've come a long way, and there's been a great deal of growth and movement in their relationship. :)

I still can't believe what they did to Zack

I know. :(

♥ Thank you, sweetie. Truly.

This line. This one: The number was correct, but the fifth, the fifth was wrong.
Perfect.

Thank you. Glad that sentence resonated with you.

Gorgeous little ficlet. I love how Brennan recognized Cam's loss and included her in their plans.

It's a nice sign as to how she's evolved re: reading people.

Exactly.
