Timeline:  Set after Brennan accosts Booth in his bathroom.

Mirror, Mirror

It isn’t until she’s back home, alone, staring at her reflection in her own bathroom mirror, that Brennan smiles. Where did Booth find that ridiculous contraption he’d had perched atop his head when she’d stormed the steam-filled bastion of his bathroom?

The smile edges into wild laughter echoing off the walls and clanging in her ears. She braces her arms hard against her stomach.

Hold it in. Hold it in.

The futile admonishment ricochets ‘round her brain. She gasps. Within the space of one peal of laughter, dubious humor alchemizes into saltwater; she nearly drowns in it.

Booth is alive.

YES

You have just redeemed that scene in my mind.

OMG, but freevortexis absolutely brilliant in saying that you have redeemed that scene.

I hated it, then after re-watching maybe 6 times, understood it, but still hated the hat, the cigar, and the graphic novel as totally OOC!Booth.

Now, however, it's clear that these are a reflection of Whimsical!Booth.

Love it!

Er, you wouldn't happen to have that song would you? *bats eyelashes*

Thank you. :)

;) Here you go. Enjoy; it's a gorgeous song. Just do me a favor and holler once you've snagged it. Thanks.

*clutches heart*

Great stuff.

And your header just...

*sobs*

Very good. Yes, redemption is a good word for it.

Your header makes me want to crawl into bed and mope. *sigh* A week hasn't dulled things much.

But this - that you can do so much with so few words always amazes me. And I absolutely agree that this drabble completely changes how I feel about that scene. I feel so cheated that we don't get to see more of her emotions after she was told of his death. Off-topic. Sorry.

Beautiful, as usual.

If you wish to vent or kvetch, believe me, I'm open for business. :) *snuggles you*

I didn't really do much besides make something I wanted to see, but thank you for your unfailingly generous comments.

So with you on that. And you couldn't be more ON-topic!

Brilliant; beautiful.

This, coming from the poet. :) You are too kind, but thank you.

Hey, it's Ms. Gardener. :) Thank you, madam.

Once again you're brilliant :)

LOL Hardly, but thanks. *g*

I knew you were going to do something about this particular scene. I knew it! You didn't liked it so you had to take something nice out of it.

By the way, I can't take a smile off my face since I saw your new header. Zack and Hodgins, god I'm going to miss those scenes.. :(

What can I say? I'm totally predictable. :D

Zack and Hodgins, god I'm going to miss those scenes.. :(

*sighs* I know. :( Same here.

This got me a bit near the mind-peace I needed.

How can you tell so much in such a few words? Lovely.

This got me a bit near the mind-peace I needed.

*hugs you*

As always, many thanks for your lovely comments.

I like your drabble!

but I still don't really like that scene - except for Brennans "lack of puritan modesty" quote (sometimes things make you laugh and regret that you're at the same time - I always try to tell myself that they had to make it so ridiculous so it would not be too embarrassing or sexually connotated for the characters - (am I making sense?) to deflect from their emotions..

but then again: why make that scene anyway...

Thanks. :) And I hear you; I didn't like the bathroom scene either -- which is precisely why I wrote this drabble.

I always try to tell myself that they had to make it so ridiculous so it would not be too embarrassing or sexually connotated for the characters - (am I making sense?) to deflect from their emotions..

You're definitely making sense; I understand what you're saying.

*blinks* How on earth did you do that? You just made that scene worthwhile, even lent it a bit of credulity that certainly wasn't there before. (I was more than half certain they stole it fro ma fic somewhere..)

Cracking, and I'm glad I am not the only one who had a problemw ith that scene....such a cheap throwaway scene for the shippers - who would really have loved to see the scene you just wrote - accurately reflecting (see what I did there!) what SHOULD have happened.

Oh thank GOD, you are here to redeem this scene (because it was awful).
