Working for me, Dr. Addy assisted in incarcerating over 50 murderers. Even while he was institutionalised, Zack attempted the impossible - to find a cure for Dr. Hodgins paralysis. Now it’s true, he made mistakes. But I still believe, in my heart, that the world would only benefit from his return to society. Thank you.
AU where Benson and Brennan are roommates who have a habit of borrowing each others clothes. The grey blazer is a mutual favourite and neither woman can remember who bought it in the first place, which means they both think it’s theirs.
You are irrational and impulsive, superstitious and exasperating. You believe in ghosts and angels and maybe even Santa Claus. And because of you, I’ve started to see the universe differently. How is it possible that simply looking into your fine face gives me so much joy? Why does it make me so happy that every time I try to sneak a peek at you you are already looking at me? Like you, it makes no sense. And like you, it feels right. If I ever get out of here, I will find a time and a place to tell you that you make my life messy and confusing and unfocused and irrational and wonderful.” - T.B
it runs in the family: Emily and Zooey Deschanel “I grew up believing my sister was from the planet Neptune and had been sent down to Earth to kill me. I believed this because my sister Emily convinced me of it when I was a toddler. There’s a part of me that still believes it. I have moments when I think, ‘Hmm, could that be true?’ Occasionally I ask my sister about it and she responds by pulling an alien face, which only confuses matters.”
#ThankYouBones Week: Day 2 → 11 Temperance Brennan character growth moments
So… where to start? Temperance Brennan. I’ve grown with this character. I’ve faced my darkest moments while seeing her journey to become who she is today. The woman unafraid to do what it takes to protect those she loves the most. The woman capable to show love, care, friendship, those feelings she always kept inside her but didn’t want to leave out. The woman that fell in love, got married, had children - that never expected it, but adjusted because that’s how life is sometimes: unexpected.
Science goes in all directions. And inertia demands you keep moving. Going places you have never been, reevaluating your life choices, falling and getting up again and again, as many times as it takes, making amends with your past, knowing that you can live with it and be a whole person. Giving the best of you, in everything. Believing that you can get wherever you want because you have the strength the intelligence for it. Never giving up. Because, after all, the sun rises because the world turns and there’s no unique event in this universe.
There are really a thousand reasons to love this character. Thousand moments to be proud of seeing her grow up. Thousand quotes to keep in my heart when I’m down. If she did it, so can I, so can all of you. You will find the time and place you’re looking for.
And this is why she will always and forever be the best character I’ve had the pleasure to see grow up.
