Booth/Brennan Fic Challenge
Temperance - lerdo
ETA:  If your response is short, feel free to just put it up as a comment on this post. 

I'm issuing a Booth/Brennan fic challenge.  (OK, so it's more of a prompt than a challenge, per se.)  Would anyone be willing to write a poem, drabble, or fic based on Every Little Thing She Does is Magic by The Police?  I'm dying for this fic, but I don't want to write it -- at least at this moment.  There's no deadline, and the only requirements are that  your piece is inspired by the song, you title it Every Little Thing She Does is Magic, and you don't write a song fic -- i.e. a story with the song lyrics pasted in.  It can be dark, fluffy slice-of-life (winks at tempertemper77), a mix, or whatever your little heart desires.

If you decide to write something, please comment on this post with a link.  I'd love to read your creation. :)  And if you're looking for someone to do a read-through or beta before you post, I would be happy to lend a hand.  Just give me a holler. 

Anyone willing to take up the gauntlet?  Please?  Bueller?  *gives best puppy-dog eyes*

You can download the song here


"Every Little Thing She Does Is Magic"

Though I've tried before to tell her
Of the feelings I have for her in my heart
Every time that I come near her
I just lose my nerve
As I've done from the start

Every little thing she does is magic
Everything she do just turns me on
Even though my life before was tragic
Now I know my love for her goes on

Do I have to tell the story
Of a thousand rainy days since we first met
It's a big enough umbrella
But it's always me that ends up getting wet

Every little thing she does is magic
Everything she do just turns me on
Even though my life before was tragic
Now I know my love for her goes on

I resolve to call her up a thousand times a day
And ask her if she'll marry me in some old fashioned way
But my silent fears have gripped me
Long before I reach the phone
Long before my tongue has tripped me
Must I always be alone?

Every little thing she does is magic
Everything she do just turns me on
Even though my life before was tragic
Now I know my love for her goes on

I'll take the challenge!

Hey. :) I already sent you a PM on fanfiction.net, saying I'll take your challenge. Just incase you didn't get the message.

I'm Skellingtonlover over there.

Have a good day!

Re: I'll take the challenge!

Hey, Skelly. You've got a FF.net PM from me. :)

Hey, so I read the challenge and I'm going to try, but I can't promisse anything. It's up to my muse!



Hi, Mary. I hope the song inspires your muse in some fashion. :) Thank you for playing!

Okay, so I've got the fic done, but I'm not posting it on my journal. Can you beta it for me? I've got bad grammar issues! This was fun to write, so thank you!

Hi again, Mary. Adorable icon, by the way. :) I'd be happy to beta your fic. You can email it to me at lerdo_umd@yahoo.com as a Microsoft Word document or some other kind of text file -- just let me know what works for you. Oh, and let me know if there's anything in particular you'd like me to watch out (or not watch out) for.

I wrote you little piece - at my journal here http://wimseynotes.livejournal.com/8274.html

Thanks for the challenge - I'm in a writing mood.

Hi there. Thanks for using my prompt. I'm about head out for a bit, but I'll read your piece tonight. :)

I'll just say that is a beautiful song. I'm not trying anything for the challenge because fics are not my thing...BUT I'll be making a vid to the song -that I can.


Ooooh, a vid! Sounds good to me, my dear. Have at it. :D

Every Little Thing She Does

I give you comment fic...

Triple drabble Booth's POV

He sits across the room watching her reassemble the skeleton, concentration etched across her face. His mind wanders, imagining the intensity of her gaze focused on him, her hands carefully learning him, running across him the same way they inspected the bones before her. He shook his head, trying to clear it. Oh, did he have it bad for her when he even found even this erotic.

Booth wasn’t even sure exactly when it began, there was no cathartic moment; just the history they had shared over the last few years - solving cases, getting to know each other. Her commitment to bringing justice to those who could not fight for it, the mixture of intelligence with naiveté, even her insane need to find rational scientific reasons for everything; all of it drew him to her.

Plus, so hot; who could resist that?

Every now and then, when they were talking or eating dinner, he almost had the nerve to confess how he felt, but never managed to. She wasn’t ready to hear it, not yet. Late at night he’d even go so far as to grab the phone, ready to call her and admit that he was in love with her, wanted to be with her forever, to come over and make love with her, but that was a fantasy he knew couldn’t happen.

He even imagined just breaking down and kissing her, right here, in the lab. Gently at first, brushing his lips on hers, then deeper tongues sliding together, but he never gave into the urge. Bones didn’t do relationships well, she ran away. Having her in his life as a friend and partner would have to be enough for now. Booth just watched, waited, and imagined; hoping one day she’d realize the potential they had together.

Re: Every Little Thing She Does

Silly Booth, throw caution to the wind! She wants you, man.

Thanks so much for writing this. I am 100% sure that Booth has had erotic thoughts while watching Brennan examine bones in the lab. You're right on the money there.

One of these days, those two crazy kids are going to have to demolish that damn line -- officially. *sighs*

Re: Every Little Thing She Does

It was fun. I had a crappy day at work, so this was a much more relaxing way to finish the afternoon! Thank you for the idea.

Oooh *slice-of-life-giggle* ... love that song. Will definitely have a go at this :)

Yay! I was hoping you would be tempted. *g* Can't wait to see what your masterful brain comes up with.

Just back to let you know that I am still working on this!! I know exactly what I want it to be, but it is being stubborn getting there! It doesn't help that I feel my time is limited right now, which always stymies me creatively :(

Anyway, I know you don't expect anything, but just wanted to let you know! :)

Thanks for the heads-up, hon. But you're right -- I don't expect anything. So whatever I get will be purely a nice surprise! And if you want another pair of eyes for working out some kinks, I am always here. (Not trying to take Space's place, of course.) I know what you mean about about the limited time hurting your creativity. Sometimes little spurts of writing is all that life allows us. Regardless, don't worry; your writing will always be there, waiting for you when you're ready for it. :)

I'm intrigued... this is my hubby's favorite song. I may be slow with a response, but I think I'll work on something. Gold star for you for getting me motivated :)

It's a fabulous song. :) Glad you're intrigued. BTW, did you get my email re: the pregnancy stuff? You don't need to respond; I just wanted to be sure you didn't think I was ignoring you.

Is it alright if I make it a drabble? If you want, I can post it separate from my drabble series.

Oh, and I have a random note. I just posted chapter 22 of my drabble series, which is based on #44 from Prismatic. :D

Ah, nevermind my previous question. My drabble took steroids and became a ficlet.


That would be my entry. :D

Thanks for the link. :)

Will see what I can rustle up!

Thanks for the prompt! I wrote a little something.. you can find it here:
