One: I just want some input from you writers/readers out there.

I know that Bones fic involving pregnant!Brennan is becoming more and more popular/common. I'm not really a fan of that, but whatever. I'm wondering: What do you guys think she would do if she actually did get pregnant?

Many people seem to jump to the idea of abortion, but do we really know her views on that? And what if it was Booth's kid? We can probably safely assume that he probably wouldn't be too keen on that idea, and would probably be angry if he found out she did so after the fact. Would she tell him?

Ideas? Thoughts?

Two: This has nothing to do with the above, but it's just a pet peeve of mine. In all the Christmas fic popping up all over the place, there's a lot of Booth with no Parker, and people always seem to have people curious as to why he's not with his son on Christmas Eve. But in 1x09 it was stated quite clearly that he sees his son part of Christmas Day, thus it's most likely normal for him to be spending the evening without his son. :P Just a little factoid.

Nov. 9th, 2006 @ 11:18 am Bones Fanfiction Archive
Hi there.

I've recently joined this community and first of all it seams a great place. What I was wondering and I hope it is ok to post is the following:

I am creating a Bones fanfiction archive called "Through the Eyes of a Sniper" and as the name indicates it is intended to be a Booth centric archive either as solo or paired with anyone except Brennan. I don't hate her but first I would like to gather good fics concentrating on the "unusual" pairing. Perhaps further down the line I will add a category including Booth/Brennan.

My concentration is to have quality fics in the archive. My question is if you people know (point me in the right direction) where I can find bones fanfiction, if you know any author that would like to be part of the archive.

The archive will be run with efiction which means that each author would have their own account but before I "put it on air" as one say I would like to have a substantial size to the archive. If the author is interested to have their fics archived prior to the publishing of the archive I would create their account and later transfer the full control of said account to the author.

So far there are 26 fics from two authors all in the Booth/Hodgins section.
If the author doesn’t want their fics added to the archive I have created a recs page where one could link the story.

If you people can aid me in this it would be extremely appreciated. You can either leave a comment here or email me at silvihenna@gmail.com

Nov. 3rd, 2006 @ 10:56 pm Writing Exercise #1
What do you all think of writing exercises becoming a sort-of-regular feature of this comm?
*pauses* *assumes that at least one of you said 'sure!'*. What I was thinking for this first one:

Take a single line of dialogue from any Bones episode, and write a fic in which you use it in a completely different conversation and context. It can be any line of dialogue you'd like (although choosing something indistinct like 'yes' or 'that is interesting' is kind of cheating :P) and the fic can be as long or as short as you'd like. Any takers?

(NB: Post links to any responses to this comm (the point is to see what we can come up with, after all!) and yes, I'm aware that I have a 'no completed fic' rule, but it's different when it's a response to an exercise here. Really. :P)

Anyone up for tackling the group (squints + Booth) as a whole in the same way we did Booth/Brennan?

Okay, first off - you guys rock. Seriously. With this still being a baby community, I didn't think I was going to get much of a response to that last post, but you all certainly proved me wrong. ;)
I promise to have something more than the general 'yeah, i agree' nature of my own comments to contribute once I've seen more than two episodes (which, according to the 'estimated time' on my torrent, will be in 4 days... but those things are always lying to me :p). For now though, I'm having a great time just reading what all of you have to say. :)

Also, I've added a couple of links to our memories that I've had in my own for a while and found useful:

On Writing Angst - penknife

Dialogue Formatting  Tutorial - rynne

And, as suggested by starbuckx, I think we should start a list of fanfic 'pet peeves', because it's good for our own fic to identify them, and because it's cathartic to bitch get it off our collective chest. ;)  So, comment on this post with the things that get under your skin about Bones fic, or even just fanfic in general. But absolutely no naming names, remember. 

One of mine off the top of my head - the repeated use of titles such as 'the forensic anthropologist' or 'the  brunette'  in the place of names.  Once  and I barely notice it,  but twice in the same paragraph (and it's surprising how much I see that happen) and I'm wincing.

Alright. *pokes*. Your turn.

Oct. 25th, 2006 @ 08:32 am First Post; Booth/Brennan analysis.
I suppose I should get the ball rolling and actually post something, eh?

Well, first off, I want to encourage everyone to feel free to post in this community - don't be shy! ;)

And just to give this post a bit more substance - how about a discussion?

Let's start with something obvious - Booth/Brennan interaction. If you were to analyze their relationship, what would you say? How do think the dynamics between them have shifted over time, and what do you think caused the changes? How does this translate into fic? Do you know of any examples of Booth/Brennan interaction executed well in fic? What do you feel are the areas fanfic authors fall down in when writing Booth/Brennan interaction?

(Obviously, these questions are just meant to prompt discussion, you're not limited to them nor do you have to answer every one.)
