Hello, hello! I hope you are having a nice weekend! One year ago today, Bones Theory began! *tosses confetti*
Like most events in life, I find that I can’t quite believe it’s been an entire year and yet I also find it hard to remember times when we weren’t hanging out and talking BONES together, you know?
The first post ever was, “From Tessa to Hacker: How B&B Have Shared the Same Relationship Track” and that post received 6 comments. Woo! Special shout out to Wendy, Minna, Kristen, Smurfs, Ange and Aly for those! But seriously, this site would not be in existence today without the incredible community of writers and fans who come over and make their viewpoints known! If you happen to be new to BT and you’ve never commented, I encourage you to join in a discussion soon! At some point of another, each person who comments here did so for the first time ever. Once you get that one out of the way, it’s all good.
As I was thinking back over the year, I thought it might be fun to tally a few items, just to see what shakes out. So, without further ado, here are a few interesting facts.
Total posts: (counting this one) 301

And here (in no particular order) are
five ten (come on, after a year, you didn’t really think I’d stop at five, did you?) of my favorite all-time BT discussions (Note: I only chose posts written by me. Some posts written by other people are amazingly better than these, but how to choose, you know? I chose selfishly is what I’m saying 😀 )

One last thing before I go for today. Pal Firefly729 posted a link to this video on YouTube, and I’ve been watching it a lot lately. It was created by Leyton23Semperance, and here’s the official link to it, if you need it. It’s called “The Story”, which I love. I also especially really love how it shows that Booth and Brennan both have been there for the other–that they are both flawed and both lovely and made for one another. #Adoration!
Now, if you’ll excuse me, I have some important business to attend to!
Peace, Love & Bones (and many, many thanks!),
