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.

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

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.

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.

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