Good morning darlings!
I hope you are having a great Saturday! It’s time to end this series of who is ‘to blame’, though I’ve heard you all mention others you want to blame (Pops, etc), so we’ll see what happens there. But for now, let’s talk Sweets.
Pal Nicole has a great post about Sweets, so I don’t want to take too much away from her. That will go live next Tuesday, so be on the lookout for that. But for me, with Sweets, he represents the desperation I feel for getting B&B together, because it just NEEDS TO HAPPEN!
I don’t talk a lot about it here, but when I first got into BONES, I spent most of my time writing fanfic, just trying to get B&B together, in whichever way I could consider. But now, when I think about those stories, they were a lot more about me than they were about B&B, and for the most part, I wanted to fix B&B. I wanted to fix their issues, and then presto-chang-o, they were together, right?
What’s interesting about Sweets is that (so to speak), he and I came around to BONES at the exact same time, which is in the middle of season three. Sometimes I wonder how I would feel about Sweets (and the show), if I’d watched from the beginning, or if I’d started watching when the series was already in season four or five. But because he was new when I was new, I can see where that makes it easier for me to cut him some slack. He just wants to fix them so they can be together. Just like I did (okay, okay, do!)
That’s my take on it, at least.
So for me, Sweets represents that desperation I have for B&B. He represents the idea that if I try hard enough, if I love enough, then B&B can almost be forced together.
When I look back at some of those old story ideas I had, I see now that they were misguided, or at least, they were too…forced. I try not to begrudge myself those ‘forcings’, I guess, because they were out of love. Haha, just the kind of scary love that makes people a little crazed. Sweets has that kind of love for B&B. It’s the desperation he has that makes me be rash when it comes to Brennan and Booth.
And yes, hopefully soon, he’ll have to account for some of his actions. But I firmly believe that most of them are based out of the way he cares for B&B. Dr. Wyatt was right when he said that Sweets wants what we all want, which is to be in a family.
He was right about Sweets, but he was also right when he said it’s what we all want. It’s what I want, metaphorically 🙂
So, Sweets is to blame for making me think that if I try hard enough, if I work hard enough, if I clap my hands hard enough that
Tinkerbell will live that B&B will get together.
Sweets and I probably both need to relax about it, but sometimes we just can’t change who we are.
Talk to you tomorrow,
Peace, Love & Bones
