Bones, 3 recs, Bones/Booth

I stopped watching Bones years ago, but there was some damn good fic back in the days when I did. And this is what happens when I do a deep dig through my personal rec archive...

Why This Must Be Read: Characterization this good almost tempers the messiness of Booth and Brennan's relationship in those muddled middle seasons of the show—the author nails their tension and Booth's attempts to deal wonderfully.

Why This Must Be Read: I love love love when a show gives me a canonical alternate universe, and this show knocked its bar AU out of the park. This fic fleshes out that setting wonderfully, with heavy doses of all your in-the-continuity favorites.
