The very first scene I watched of Bones was the one on the first gif (s01, The Woman in Limbo), not only Brennan broke my heart with her speech and almost made me cry, but I loved how that man was by her side just supporting her. I wouldn’t start watching Bones regularly until season 5 (I don’t know why, really), but the first thing I loved about this show was Brennan/Booth’s relationship: their chemistry, the tension between them, their fights, their support for each other, their bickering, their talks, their gazing at each other, their hugs, their friendship, their jokes, their evolution as characters and as a couple. They’ve always loved and supported each other. They complement each other perfectly without having to sacrifice their own personalities. They have grown together, and they have taught us that everything happens eventually. They will always be one of the greatest couples on TV, with a beautiful family, a loving healthy relationship and the most amazing chemistry I’ve seen on modern TV. Thanks for everything Brennan & Booth.

Do you remember the last time that we were here? Standing right around in this spot? It was right in the beginning, before we really knew each other. I was trying to get away from you, because you were irritating me. And you chased me down, and you caught up to me. I said to you, “Listen, I just have to get all my ducks in a row, right?” And then you said to me… I can be a duck! Yeah. You know, we have been chasing each other for a long time. We’ve been chasing each other through wars and serial killers and ghosts and, you know, chasing you has been the smartest thing that I have ever done in my life. And being chased by you has been my greatest joy, but now we don’t have to chase each other anymore because we caught each other.
I think my favourite thing about Bones is every time the bad guy tries to threaten or touch Brennan, Booth just sighs and steps backs with an exasperated “I wouldn’t” because he knows she’s going to fuck the other person up.
