To all the Tomlinison-Deakin family, words can’t describe this pain but my prayers and thoughts go to all of you. You had an amazing woman with you who raised amazing people, I am truly sorry and speechless at the moment, be strong, be safe. She’ll always be with you, always by your side. We love you a lot.
They drink. It’s hard not to, considering he brought four bottles. They finish Courage over the course of their night together (although Vex finds that she doesn’t need as much of the liquid kind as she thought) and barely dip into one of the others before they leave the bottles off to the side to attend to other matters. It’s not enough to blur the events of the night though, Vex finds as she wakes to sunlight pouring onto her face, and she doesn’t have nearly as much of a headache as she thought she’d have.
Vex likes to think she’s a woman prepared for anything. Getting jumped by enemies unexpectedly? Sure, no problem. People not being who they say they are? Well, that’s always a downer but she can’t really say she’s surprised anymore. But coming to a little bit more and realizing the warmth she feels isn’t just her blankets and the sun but a rather ruffled, coming-to-consciousness Percy with his arm thrown around her and one of his feet tucked between her’s? That throws her a little bit.
To the wonderful cast of Bones: it has been an amazing journey and an experience of a lifetime to be a fan of yours. As a fandom, we have been so so lucky to have witnessed all that you have to offer, and all that can be achieved when you have a group of extremely humble and dedicated actors together. A group of actors who all like each other so much, and who get along so well, and who then form their own makeshift family. “There’s more than one kind of family” - this quote is so, so true for both the characters on Bones as well as their respective real-life counterparts. To say that I’m going to miss Bones so much is an understatement, because, as every true Bones fan knows and understands, it’s not just the show that we will miss - it’s everything. The cast, the crew, the behind-the-scenes action - we will miss it all. And I dare say that our cast is, and will always be, the best cast that has ever existed. Period.
So, to our dearest Emily, David, Michaela, TJ, Tamara, (new) John and (old) John, Eric, Patricia, Michael, Pej, Eugene, Carla, Laura, Ignacio, Joel, Brian, and to everyone else, especially Hart, Stephen, Kathy, Michael and Jonathan; on behalf of the fandom, I’d like to express my heartfelt gratitude for everything that you have given us with this beautiful, one-of-a-kind show. Thank you for all the memories, and fun, and joy, and laughter that you have brought into our lives. Thank you for being who you are, and for always acknowledging us as well - it just makes the experience of being YOUR fan all the more fun and awesome. You’ll be in our hearts, always.
They say that “you can love a lot of people shows in this world, but there’s only one person show that you’ll love the most”. For me, that’s Bones, and that is all thanks to the most amazing cast to ever exist.
I’m at such a loss. My heart is aching. I cannot imagine the pain they must be feeling. Johannah seemed, to me, like the most selfless and kind woman and no one should ever have to go through this. My prayers go out for her husband, Louis, and the rest of those precious babies.
