41. Share

Booth’s mouth twitches in a smile as Brennan sighs and drags her spoon through her sludgy oatmeal before eyeing his chocolate chip pancakes; he slides his plate in her direction: “You want a bite?” he asks, and she scowls and picks up her fork.

42. Jealousy

Though Brennan has never minded dining out alone, the moment she steps into Café Reynard and sees Booth laughing with an attractive blonde wearing a miniscule black dress, she turns and marches right back out again, her mouth filled with something dark and bitter.

43. Melody

As Booth folds his laundry one Sunday morning, he hums an 80s song; when he realizes it’s Girls Just Wanna Have Fun, not even the memory of how that night ended can dim the smile that curves his mouth at the remembered image of his partner bouncing and singing on-stage.

44. Clouds

Time has taught Brennan to read Booth nearly as well as he reads her, so in moments when he is uncharacteristically quiet and a certain blank distance clouds his gaze, she sits patiently beside him and trusts that one day he’ll tell her what’s troubling him.

45. Fear

Booth snaps his phone shut and wrenches the steering wheel to the left, pulling the SUV into a sharp U-turn; “What is it?” Brennan asks, staring at his bloodless profile and flinching when he answers, “Parker’s been in an accident.”

A/N:  Only five more of these to go.

So for anyone who's reading these, I have a question: if it were up to you, which, if any of these 45 sentences, would you be interested in seeing expanded? (Feel free to mention more than one.) I can't promise anything, but I'm curious to hear what you think. Thanks.

And absolutely perfect re: "Parker's been in an accident."

ETA: and...expanded...definitely, of these, #44. #45 perhaps as well, but more as a subplot in another story. I'll go back to look at the others in a bit.

Love the zen of these.

And yes: she'd be jealous - but would she admit it?

I re-watched The Intern in the Incinerator tonight, and I am still convinced that she was very suspicious of Booth after Cam slipped about dinner with Booth. Just a short time later, she learned that Booth knew Cam's password. That he knew hers was irrelevant to her, hence, IMO, she asked him if he was going to betray her. She was really asking, IMO, if he had betrayed her already....

And I thought she seemed very......defensive?....when he said he wouldn't.

Ah hem...

All of them. Because you're awesome. :)

No? Well, a girl can hope...



Maybe 15?
or... 44! No, 45. I don't know. They're all good.

45 for sure! DarkBooth and JealousBooth can be fun too

i'd love 37 and 39 for expanding, but if i had to choose just one, i'd say 29, and not just because i'm a smut-monger, and not necessarily as smut. :)

I would love to see 42 expanded since I just watched Intern in the Incinerator where Bones has a questionable look when Cam says that she and Booth went out to dinner.

It's 42 and 45 for me.

We've never really seen Brennan full-out jealous. With Cam, a lot of it stemmed from the fact that it was a hidden relationship, and moreover because Cam was her boss. Tessa and Rebecca, I don't think she ever saw them as a threat, since during Tessa's time she was still developing feelings for Booth (as we shippers like to think :D) and she knew he was with Rebecca "to satisfy biological urges".

Although I've always seen Booth as too devoted with Brennan to go out with someone else, I'm sure you can cook up something that's believable and absolutely wonderful. :)

45 'cause Booth and Parker are adorable together and it could totally turn into a comfort fic. I would cry if Parker didn't make it though. :(

Anyway, that's my two cents. :)

It's hard to pick my favourites from these, but I'm going to suggest 15 (would Booth ever give her the dress?) and 36 (because it makes me smile).

I just also have to say that #20 would be great expanded and that #39 & #40 are amazing.

perfect! its amazing how just one sentence can be so insightful. id have to say, out of all 45 so far, that 6, 10, 11, 13, 16-20, 25, 32, 35-39, 40, and 45 are the ones id like to see expanded the most. all the rest are perfect the way they are, i love the simplicity of them. the others would be awesome as a semi-short fic, or drabble even. cant wait for more updates!

This and reruns are the only things getting me through this summer. Since I've only been glancing at my f-list lately, I'm wondering if I missed something...

Expanded? As long as you keep writing, I'll be happy. But if I had to choose...I'd say #42.

42 and/or 43, definitely!
