Everlong by Jules (PG-13)

Fandom Category: Bones
Pairing: Temperance Brennan/Seeley Booth
Fic Title: Everlong
Author: _hazelnutcoffee aka Jules
Link: http://users.livejournal.com/_hazelnutcoffee/14552.html
Rating/Warning(s): PG-13/Published in July, 2008 (summer after s3) spoilers through 3.15, The Pain in the Heart.
Genre: Romance
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: This one's a beautiful retelling of Brennan and Booth's life together, with all the little moments that make it special and theirs. Jules did a masterful job of taking their beginnings and weaving them into a present and future in a way that will make you believe, as I do, that "of course that's the way it all happened." Go. Read. You won't be disappointed (but you might need a tissue).

As You Mean To Go On by brooklinegirl (PG)

Rating/Warning(s): PG
Genre: Epilogue To Movie (romance, humor, drama)
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: It's a gorgeous and note perfect coda to the movie. Each vignette lovingly continues the storylines of the movie in realistic ways. It's so in character and so in keeping with the tone of the movie -- romantic, funny, sometimes heartbreaking, yet always hopeful.
