Fanfiction Author Recommendations

Hey everyone,

I thought I would start a list of the best bones fanfic authors out there. I always read the fanfic I recommend on this blog before posting it, as I only want to highlight the best fanfics out there. There's so many amazing fanfics I miss out though. I think i'm the only one of the three blog authors that run this site, that actually reads bones fanfic regularly. I think you can appreciate that I don't have the time to read every story that appears on fanfiction.net; quite frankly, I don't know anyone who would want to read every single story that appears on that site.
   Some authors obviously struggle with punctuation, spelling, or even getting their story to flow smoothly. Abandoned stories are also frequent on there. I'll be the first to admit that i've abandoned a story or two in the past (dodges angry glares from all the people who kindly reviewed my stories, I will get back to them soon.I promise), as well as screwing up punctuation, as I don't often use as beta reader to check my stuff before I post it.
  The purpose of this list will be to direct you to authors that I've read a few stories by, and feel confident enough to recommend them, as I know that most of what they produce will be an enjoyable read. It will also save you some time, so you wont have to browse through hundreds, or maybe even thousands of poorly written fanfics to find something good to read.
   If there's anyone missing from this list that you think deserves to be on it, just send me a tweet/email or leave a comment under this post with a link to some of their stories, and i'll check them out as soon as I can.

This list is not yet complete, but will be added to over the coming weeks. Just click on the authors name to be redirected to a list of their fics on fanfiction.net.

More Emily Deschanel and David Hornsby Photos


I really am on a roll today with all the stalkerazzi pics. I was bored so I just randomly googled them and came back with loads of stuff to put on here. Enjoy!

Make A Wish Foundation Event, May 2008

No clue where/when this was taken but looks fairly recent due to Emily's haircut.

Newlyweds Emily Deschanel and David Hornsby, married yesterday (Sept 25th), celebrate their wedding with reception brunch with friends and family at Emily's parents home. In attendance were sister Zooey Deschanel and husband Ben Gibbard the frontman for Death Cab For Cutie. Ok, I know these pics are like 4 months old but I thought I'd post them anyway.

The Sin in the Sisterhood Promo

A squint fact, for the Squint in us all

The History of Forensic Anthropology is typically broken into three main time era's

I The formative Period (1800's-1938)
II The Consolation Period (1939-1971)
III The Modern Period (1971-present)

The pioneer and founder of forensic anthropology is Thomas Dwight (1843-1911).

(since this is a rather boring squint fact I will throw in a little extra, lol)

The majority of bodies that are found were done so accidentally. However investigators going on leads are also successful at the recovery of remains.

A squint fact, for the Squint in us all

Factoid #3

There are 10 general methods or steps in the identification of human remains.

1) Determination of whether bones are human or nonhuman
2) The number of individuals to be identified
3) Sex of the individual
4) Age of the individual
5) Stature or height and weight
6) Ancestry
7) Pathology: did they have a disease?
8) Pathology: Bone Trauma
9) identification via radiographs
10) Facial Reconstruction

Bones Prompts

At least once a week, we're going to offer a few prompts, which can be either words, quotes or scenes. If they inspire you and you feel like plot bunnies start jumping all around your muse, write a fanfic or make a fanvideo. Post it somewhere and link us to it, and we'll then link them again here in the blog :)

* Frustation

* He looked back at her and said, "I will not..."

* Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength, while loving someone deeply gives you courage. [Lao Tzu]


* Love is the self-delusion we manufacture to justify the trouble we take to have sex. [Daniel S. Greenberg].

* Peaceful

Bones Prompts and Fests

Okay, people:

I thought I'd start a new posting theme for the blog: Prompts and Fests.

There's a few reasons why I'm doing this:

1- I am working on my thesis and I don't need another reason to procrastinate.
2- The current season of Bones is highly frustrating, especially for my little sensitive shipper heart. I need motivation!
3- One of this blog's particularities is its recommendations: we like telling you of fanfics and fanvids every fan should read or watch. We all like our fanworks dose, right?
4- I've tried to invent new things for this blog before, and it is a little frustrating not succeeding with my previews good ideas.

So, combining all reasons together, I think giving out prompts will work pretty well. We'll keep it simple: At least once a week, we're going to offer a few prompts, which can be either words, quotes or scenes. If they inspire you and you feel like plot bunnies start jumping all around your muse, write a fanfic or make a fanvideo. Post it somewhere and link us to it, and we'll then link them again here in the blog :)

The second part of it, the fests, will come if we see the prompts work.

How will that be?

We'll choose a particular theme, say "Valentine's". Then we'll add prompts for it, people sign in to write a fanfiction or make a fanvideo with that particular prompt, and then we post them all together and we have a little fest!

The first post with prompts will be up soon. Remember to link us to the results!

Emily on Craig Fergusons Late Late Show

ahhh, my favorite actress on my favorite late night show :)


A squint fact, for the Squint in us all

Factoid #2


There are many branches of Forensic science which include  Forensic Anthropology, Forensic Pathology, Forensic Odontology, Forensic Nursing, Law, Forensic Chemistry/Toxicology, DNA Analysis, Forensic Entomology, Forensic Botany, Forensic Photography, and Forensic Psychology. These are only a few of the most common branches of Forensic science, there are actually many more.

A squint fact, for the Squint in us all

OK,

 Since our blog is titled Squinting at Bones, I thought maybe it would be interesting if I posted some real facts on Forensics, focusing mostly on Forensic Anthropology. You may wonder what the heck do i know about Anthropology other than what has been told on the show. Well I am actually getting two minors one in Forensic Science and the other in Anthropology in which I am studying under a very well respected Forensic Anthropologist in this area. Hopefully you will find my factoids as interesting as I do.


I don't know if this is general knowledge or if anyone even cares, but I will hopefully post some facts up regularly. If there is something you want to know about, ask in the comments and I will do my best to find out for you.

-H-ROB

Factoid # 1


Anthropology means quite literally 'the study of Humans'.  It is actually a very broad area of science is typically broken into 3 sub groups Archaeology (the study of past cultures), Cultural Anthropology (aspects of human society, culture, behavior, beliefs, ways of life), and Biological or Physical Anthropology (physical and biological aspects of the primate order. This includes the Forensic part of Anthropology).

The Couple in the Cave - 6x02

Cam: I just assumed that when you guys got back from your trip you'd be a real couple.
Brennan: We were never a couple.
Clark: Dr. Saroyan, you assured me that you would try to keep this work place professional.
Cam: And I will, Dr. Edison.
Angela: (ignoring Clark) No, no, no. You were a couple. You just weren't having sex. (Clark moans) Were you jealous?
Brennan: Of course not. I'm happy for Booth, why would I be jealous?
Clark: Because it's obvious you and Agent Booth were attracted to each other. I mean, a blind man can see that. I just couldn't understand why you two just didn't rip each other's clothes off. I mean, just get all butt-naked and … (realizing what he just said) Oh my God, oh my God, oh my God! Ah, I'm, I'm sorry, I-it just popped out, okay? You guys weren't focusing.
Hodgins: Dude, a little self control.

The Maggots in the Meathead - 6x03

The Shallow in the Deep - 6x06

Brennan: Booth, you've been shot and beaten, and jumped out of airplanes. The skeletal damage alone is…
Booth: Oh, God, I'm falling apart.
Brennan: You're fine. It's your skeleton that's falling apart.

The Babe in the Bar - 6x07

Nigel-Murray: Oh, you know, there are many fine universities in England, uh, Oxford and Cambridge, of course, but th-th-there's also...

Brennan: Those last two words, one is the capital of Sri Lanka and the other is … a cookie.
Micah: (smiles) It sounds like Latin

Micah: By the power vested in me by the Jeffersonian Institution, I declare you sleep-deprived. There's a cab waiting to take you home to bed, hmm?
Brennan: Do you really have that power?
Micah: I saw this lecture where this New Age guru type said the only power people exert over us is the power we allow them to exert.
Brennan: Well that's incredibly stupid.
Micah: I agree. You wave a gun in my face, you got power whether I like it or not.

Brennan: I made a mistake.
Booth: Nah, I told you my opinion, I mean, you got it right.
Brennan: Not everything. She died with regrets.
Booth: Come on, Bones, everybody has regrets.
Brennan: I heard her, you know? Micah says that all we get are these (she laughs) dim, staticky messages from the universe.
Booth: Who's this Micah guy?
Brennan The night watchman, but he attends a lot of lectures. Anyway, the point is … she never gave him a chance.
Booth: Micah.
Brennan: No, no, the helicopter pilot. He offered himself to her, but she never gave him a chance. That was her regret. (Booth looks at her aware that she's talking about him) I got the signal, Booth. I don't wanna have any regrets.
Booth: (Booth takes his time answering) Um, I'm with someone, (Brennan nods in a defeated way) Bones. And, uh, Hannah? She's not a consolation prize. I love her. (Brennan begins sobbing) You know, the last thing I wanna do is hurt you, but those are the facts.
Brennan: (in tears) I understand. I missed my chance. My whole world turned upside down. I can adjust.
Booth: I did.
Brennan: Yes, you did.

The Daredevil in the Mold - 6x13
Brennan: You drunk?
Booth: Relatively. Relatively i'm drunk meaning i'm drunker than usual, but no I am not a drunk.
Brennan: You sound...something. (pauses) Hannah called me.
Booth: (sighs) Ah, just....I really I, I don't wanna talk about that. Ok, I'm just, I'm over it, I'm over it. I'm done. Ok?
Brennan: So...what happens next?
Booth: What happens next? Wha...You like evidence right Bones? Well here's the evidence. The evidence is that there's something wrong here. I fell in love with a woman. I had a kid, and she doesn't want to marry me, and well, the next woman, well she's...
Brennan: Me
Booth: Yeah, and now. I mean, what is it with women who don't want what i'm offering here?
Brennan: Booth
Booth: No, just....you know what, drink, drink. I'm just really...i'm just mad. I'm just really mad at all of you. Right, I'm just mad. Ok, so you wanna know how this is going to work. Ok, this is how this is going to work. Me and you are partners. That's what we do, we're partners alright? And I love that, I think that's great and uh, we're good people who catch bad people, right? Yeah and then we argue, we go back and forth, we're partners and sometimes after we solve a case, we come here and we celebrate, that's what we do, we celebrate. So as far as I can see, that is what happens next. Are you ok with that? Great, because if you are, tell you what, you stay here and you have a drink with me. Alright, maybe we have a little small talk, chitchat, and if you're not well... you can leave, there's the door, and tomorrow I'll find you a new FBI guy.
Brennan: Those are my only choices
Booth: Yeah, those are your only choices
Brennan: Then i'll have a drink.

Bones:They look so happy.
Booth: They had a baby
Bones: Their whole lives have changed, you think they’d be a little more apprehensive.
Booth: Well you know having a baby, that’s a good thing.
Bones: You really think that?
Booth: Yeah, it’s a great thing. Why? … What? Oh, come on Bones, look the baby … the baby’s just fine. It’s healthy. They have a healthy baby, they love each other. This is the happiest day of their lives, OK? … What?
