1NE LOVE MANCHESTER - WE STAND WITH MANCHESER
ALL LIVES MATTER - ALL RELIGIONS MATTER -
WE ARE "ALL" EQUAL UNDER 'GOD' & ALL LAWS...

pray to / or believe in... we 'all' of us matter, equally)
TO THE LIVING WE OWE RESPECT TO THE DEAD WE OWE THE TRUTH
HIC LOCUS EST UBI MORS GAUDET SUCCURRERE VITAE
this is the place where death delights to help the living
this is the place where death rejoices to secure the living.
no greater honour will ever be bestowed upon an officer,
nor more profound a duty be imposed upon them,
than when they are entrusted with an investigation,
into the death of a human being.
(written on a plaque in office, cn on 'city homicide' Australian tv series.)
the life of the dead, is placed in the memory of the living - scisero
I may not always be with you, but when we're apart,
remember you will be with me. right inside my heart.
Caroline, from Melbourne,
i love every thing about bones tv series & when thereu were gaps b/w each season, i read bones fanfiction.
(USA tv crime drama series 'Chicago Justice', has very quickly become my new favorite crime / court room drama series). hot / savy actors & an awesome range of crime cases to be solved.
some of my favourite quotes b/w booth & his bones:
'Just because you say it in that definitive tone, doesn't mean it means anything to me'!
Brennan: Why are you so nice to me?
Booth: Because, they think they get away with it.
Booth: They burn their victim. They blow him up. They toss him in the ocean. They bury them in the desert. They throw em into wood chippers. Sometimes, you know, years go by, they relax. Then they start living their lives like they didn't do anything wrong. Like they didn't spend somebody else's 's life in order to get what they got. They think they're safe from retribution. You make those bastards unsafe. That's why i'm nice to you.
Brennan: I couldn't do that without you Booth.
Booth: Yeah. So, um, you should be a little nicer to me, huh?
Brennan: I really should... *sighs*
Brennan: (looking at the screen) What exactly am I supposed to be squinting at?
Booth: Ahh, you know, it's like pornography. You'll know when you see it
Booth: You know you're not the only forensic anthropologist in town.
Brennan: (laughs) Yes I am. The next nearest is in Montreal. Parlez-vous français?
Booth: what are you trying to do?
Brennan: Blackmail you.
Booth: Blackmail a federal agent.
Booth: I don't like it.
Brennan: I'm fairly certain you're not supposed to.
Booth: Fine. You're in.
Booth: A decomposed corpse was found this morning at Arlington National Cemetery ...
Brennan: Arlington National Cemetery is full of decomposed corpses. It's a cemetery.
Booth: Yea but this one is your type of corpse, it wasn't in a casket.
"You know, homicides, they're not solved by scientists, they're solved by guys like me asking a thousand questions, a thousand times, catching people telling lies
every time," he said, severely encroaching upon her personal space. He braced a hand on the metal wall beside her head, continuing his rant, "You're great atwhat you do, Bones, but you don't solve murders...cops do" speech finishing, his face only inches from hers.
"Cleo Eller, was killed on a cement floor sprinkled with Diatomaceous Earth, traces of her blood will still be on that cement.
One of us is wrong", she states, noticing his gaze flicking to her partially open mouth, ''maybe both of us, but if Bethleham wasn't a senator, you'd be right there next bhis basement, looking for that killing floor. you're afraid of him, you're hypothesis is that squints don't solve murders & cops do..PROVE IT..BE A COP!''
(darn it, i so wanted to be caged in by those arms!) heehee!
Brennan: "If you drive one more block, I'm screaming kidnap, out the window"!
Booth: "You know, you're a smart ass, you do know that?"
Brennan: "Objectively I'd say I'm very smart, although it has nothing to do with my ass"!
I truly love the bickering that goes back n forth b/w them, they do this for almost all conversations & circumstances!
It's their bickering sessions, that have me doubled over in laughter, every time!
i don't want to be a writer anymore... why b'cos of what that publisher said, i don't want to be a sexy scientist, well that's like me saying, i don't want to be a sexy fbi agent...we can't change who we are... suspenseful chilling, temperance Brennan, leads the pack, anthropology has never been more exciting. you memorized my reviews...you know my reviews booth, but do you read my books ? every single word, you never said anything. well i figure , you know, i'm all over your real world, why would you want me, in your fantasy world too... wow, that's hot, steaming sizzling !
"He knows the truth of you, and he is dazzled by that truth." - Avalon Harmonia. (perfectly stated!)
love is a chemical process, which causes delusions: you believe love is transcendent & eternal ...
i want to believe that too: but i czan't change I don't know how:
the three above statements made by temperance 'bones' brennan, to booth during their friendship, showing bren's awesome abilities & willingness to change, her entire belief system, based upon her years of having her dearest friend & working partner standing right beside her, helping her evolve & believe not only in what booth lives by, also the strength to grow & believe in herself, enabling her to love booth back, in equal measure.
a true testament as to just how much they truly love, trust, admire & adore each other.
You love someone, you open yourself up to suffering, that's the sad truth. Maybe they'll break your heart; maybe you'll break their heart & never be able to look at yourself in the same way. Those are the risks. That's the burden. Like wings, they have weight, we feel that weight on our backs, but they are a burden that lifts us. Burdens which allow us to fly. (written & stated by 'bones' Temperance Brennan.)
(profile note: i've copy & pasted a few stories below, from the profile page of 'Puppy64', that caught & held my attention & got me not only thinking deeply, also saddened a great deal, some made me laugh & smile, enough to share upon my page, after reading a note, giving permission to have this copy & pasted to my profile) i' sent a 'private message' of thanks for allowing me to add to my profile.
Try Not To Cry :(
Money ... Johnny brought a gun to school,
He told his friends that it was cool,
And when he pulled the trigger back,
It shot with a great, huge crack.
Mummy, I was a good girl, I did what I was told,
I went to school, got straight A's, and I even got the gold!
When I went to school that day, I never said goodbye,
I'm sorry that I had to go, but Mummy, please don't cry.
When Johnny shot the gun, he hit me and another,
And all because Johnny, got the gun from his brother.
Mummy, please tell Daddy; That I love him very much,
And please tell Zack, my boyfriend; That it wasn't just a crush.
And tell my sister; That she is the only one now,
And tell my dear, sweet grandmother; I'll be waiting for her now,
And tell my wonderful friends; That they always were the best,
Mummy, I'm not the first, I'm no better than the rest.
Mummy, tell my teachers; I won't show up for class,
And never to forget this, and please don't let this pass.
Mummy, why'd it have to be me? No one though, deserves this,
But Mummy, it's not fair, I left without a kiss.
And Mummy tell the doctors; I know that they really did try,
I think I even saw one doctor, trying not to cry.
Mummy, I'm slowly dying, with a bullet in my chest,
But Mummy please remember, I'm in heaven with the rest.
When I heard that great, big crack, I ran as fast as I could,
Please listen to me if you would,
I wanted to go with college, I wanted to try things that were new,
I guess I'm not going with Daddy, on that trip to the new zoo.
I wanted to get married, I wanted to have a kid,
I wanted to be an actress, I really wanted to live.
But Mummy, I must go now, the time is getting late,
Mummy, tell my Zack, I'm sorry to cancel our date.
I love you Mummy, I always have, I know you know it's true,
And Mummy all I need to say is, "Mummy, I love you."
In memory of the Columbine and Virginia Tech Students who were lost
Please, if you would, don't smash this on the ground.
If you pass this on,
Maybe people will cry.
Just keep this in your heart,
For the people who didn't get to say "Goodbye".
Now you have 2 choices;
1.) Pass this on, and show people you care, repost as "Try not to Cry"
2.) Don't post it, and you have just proven how cold-hearted you really are ...*

I think people should read this if they HATE child abusing. I found this really sad. Who would want to abuse a three year old little girl?
If you HATE child abusing or just if this makes you cry like me, copy and paste this to your profile.
My name is Sarah, I am but three,
My eyes are swollen, I cannot see,
I must be stupid, I must be bad,
What else could have made
My daddy so mad?
I wish I were better, I wish I weren't ugly,
Then maybe my mummy, Would still want to hug me.
I can't speak at all, I can't do a wrong,
Or else I'm locked up, All the day long,
When I awake I'm all alone,
The house is dark, My folks aren't home.
When my mummy does come, I'll try and be nice,
So maybe I'll get just, One whipping tonight,
Don't make a sound!
I just heard a car, My daddy is back, From Charlie's Bar.
I hear him curse, My name he calls,
I press myself, Against the wall.
I try and hide, From his evil eyes,
I'm so afraid now, I'm starting to cry.
He finds me weeping, He shouts ugly words,
He says its my fault, That he suffers at work.
He slaps me and hits me, And yells at me more,
I finally get free, And I run for the door.
He's already locked it, And I start to bawl,
He takes me and throws me, Against the hard wall.
I fall to the floor, With my bones nearly broken,
And my daddy continues, With more bad words spoken.
"I'm sorry!" I scream, But its now much too late,
His face has been twisted, Into unimaginable hate.
The hurt and the pain, Again and again,
Oh please God, have mercy!
Oh please let it end!
And he finally stops, And heads for the door,
While I lay there motionless, Sprawled on the floor.
My name is Sarah, And I am but three,
Tonight my daddy, Murdered me.
Child abuse, MAKE IT STOP!*
In Honour of Stupid People (these are my type of 'duh' statements & comments! kind regards caroline.)
In case you needed further proof that the human race is doomed to stupidity, here are some actual label instructions on consumer goods:
On a Sears hair-dryer -- Do not use while sleeping.
(Shoot, and that's the only time I have to work on my hair.)
On a bag of Frito's -- You could be a winner! No purchase necessary. Details inside.
(The shoplifter special?)
On a bar of Dial soap -- "Directions: Use like regular soap,"
(and that would be how??...)
On some Swanson frozen dinners -- "Serving suggestion: Defrost."
(but, it's "just" a suggestion).
On Tesco's tiramisu dessert (printed on bottom) -- "Do not turn upside down."
(well...duh, a bit late, huh)!
On Marks & Spencer Bread Pudding -- "Product will be hot after heating."
(...and you thought??...)
On packaging for a Rowena iron -- "Do not iron clothes on body."
(but wouldn't this save me more time)?
On Boot's Children Cough Medicine -- "Do not drive a car or operate machinery after taking this medication."
(We could do a lot to reduce the rate of construction accidents if we could just get those 5-year-olds with head-colds off those forklifts.)
On Nytol Sleep Aid -- "Warning: May cause drowsiness."
(and...I'm taking this because??...)
On most brands of Christmas lights -- "For indoor or outdoor use only."
(as opposed to...what)?
On a Japanese food processor -- "Not to be used for the other use."
(now, somebody out there, help me on this. I'm a bit curious)
On Sainsbury's peanuts -- "Warning: contains nuts."
(talk about a news flash)
On an American Airlines packet of nuts -- "Instructions: Open packet, eat nuts."
(Step 3: maybe, ooh...fly Delta?)
On a child's Superman costume -- "Wearing of this garment does not enable you to fly."
(I don't blame the company. I blame the parents for this one.)
On a Swedish chainsaw -- "Do not attempt to stop chain with your hands."
(Oh my ..was there a lot of this happening somewhere?)
"When I eventually met Mr Right I had no idea that his first name was Always."
"When I die, I want to go peacefully like my Grandfather did, in his sleep -- not screaming, like the passengers in his car”*
(profile note: i've copy & pasted a few stories above from the profile page of 'Puppy64', that caught & held my attention & got me not only thinking deeply, but also deeply saddened, others made me laugh & smile, enough to share upon my page, after reading a note, sending a personal message, requesting & only after receiving permission, to have this copy & pasted to my profile).
The stories in my favourites list, i've chosen them from authors i really, truly enjoy reading. (many times over).
specifically it's the way the author intrigues me, how they've woven all manner of cases for the entire team to work upon.
i also love when we get to see the personal sides, to the main group, it builds upon & evens out the horrific stories, that the cases are telling,
a tale of how someone's life was cut so awfully short, how this entire team, bring some sense of justice to the families - loved one's of the victim, also in finding the evidence & proving whom, why & how the criminals committed such unspeakable acts, thus ending in helping the prosecutor's dept, in sending the 'perps' to jail, keeping them from harming anyone else in good society.
i've yet to try my hand at writing a story myself, maybe someday i will.
(disclaimer): i don't own anything of bones & their truly amazingly talented writers, just adore reading, what is the awesomeness of 'bones fanfiction'.
the writers skills & pure raw talents, in being able to turn & twist b&b & their teams of 'squints' from the Jeffersonian Labs with the amazing & highly educated, purely dedicated agents at the Hoover, in uncovering the truth behind some very horrific crimes, committed against some citizen's of USofA.
ps: i got into reading bones fanfiction one day, when scrolling thru the internet searching for bones sites (tv series). many yrs ago, i'd started a collection of all Kathy Reichs novels, this addition, topped my true passion, since my early teens of 'crime stories & true crime', in my search i came across sites for fiction writing & thus fanfiction site, to which i've not regretted starting approx 5 (ish) yrs ago.
this site with it's amazing & countless stories, has taken my constant thoughts, away from some of the horrors of reading newspapers & watching the news, seeing what is happening all around our world, it very deeply saddens & effects me that there's not more peace & civility (thou i know that must seem as very naive thinking) so i turned to fanfiction, to take my mind off seeing & hearing about the horrors of what fellow man, keeps repeatedly doing to others.
(i deeply apologise, if i've come across as rude or offensive, for anything written above, as this wasn't my intention.)
kind regards caroline.
(music artists, i get a great deal of enjoyment, from their music, is extremely varied)
