Do you ever think about the fact that when Brennan thought she was going to DIE, she wrote to BOOTH.

One one hand, MY SHIPPER HEART!!! <3

But on the other, it’s very upsetting that Brennan really didn’t have anyone in her life for so long. She thought she was going to die, and the person she felt closest to was a man she had only known for 1-2 years of her life. She was so alone, by her own admission she had “no one” :(

But on to happier things…the content of the letter was just SO damn perfect. Effortlessly romantic without being intended that way in Brennan’s mind, which is what makes B&B’s vows so superior.

The vows weren’t just random romantic things that anyone can say, they were just speaking the truth and it turns out that their truths about one another are VERY romantic <3 ONLY Booth & Brennan could speak those vows, unlike most tv/movie weddings where the vows are just generic “romantic” BS.

I love that they didn’t have to overdo it with Brennan’s letter to make it a wonderful wedding vow. There were no OOC proclamations of love, because Brennan would never have said that in S2…they were just facts about Booth and how he makes makes her feel: “Why does it make me so happy that every time I try to sneak a peek at you, you’re already looking at me?” aka the BEST LINE EVER.

EXCUSE ME WHILE I CRY.

BUT BOOTH BEAT ME TO IT.

Not Looking vs. Loo(ck)ing Away

I can’t help but feel that this moment here is actually one that applies really well to Dean’s betrayal felt over Sam not looking for him when he was banished to purgatory and Amara’s betrayal felt over her brother locking her away. I know it’s a tricky and touchy subject in this fandom and Sam not looking for Dean because he was holding on to the last agreement him and Dean had is of course something drastically different than God actively locking his sister away and ignoring her pain and fear, but this is not about placing blame on God or Sam here. My focus is on Dean and Amara and what they felt. And they felt let down, betrayed, left alone. So there lies the focus here, because it’s this betrayal felt that also explains why Amara empathized as strongly with Dean as she did, why Dean was so vulnerable to the mark and its powers: They struggled with the same issues and possibly on a subconscious level felt comforted by the thought of not being the only one to have felt that way, but being understood. Just look at Dean’s face when Amara says she was “begging for death”. That’s not just pain felt over her fate imo, it is possibly remembering how he once felt when he thought his brother left him to die seemingly not caring.

Enzo: in tutti questi anni ho sempre tenuto nascosto un segreto. Un brandello di speranza. Vedi, non ho mai creduto che la vita, l'universo, una forza maggiore, in qualunque modo tu voglia chiamarla, niente…mi avrebbe permesso di soffrire così tanto e poi morire senza conoscere il vero amore. Sarebbe stato troppo crudele e quando ho incontrato te la mia speranza è stata ricompensata.
Bonnie: quindi praticamente sono un angelo?
Enzo: Bonnie Bennett, per me sei il mondo intero.


Da bambini eravamo semplici: un urlo e avevamo fame, un altro eravamo stanchi. E’ solo da adulti che diventiamo complicati. Cominciamo a nascondere i sentimenti, a costruire muri, si arriva al punto in cui non sappiamo mai veramente cosa qualcuno pensi o provi. Senza volerlo diventiamo maestri del travestimento.
