It's In the Blood, I Suppose

The angelbaby is a HUGE fan of the show Bones and has been for most of the three plus seasons it has been on the air (with parental supervision, because there are some episodes that have decidedly adult content). She is a trivia expert when it comes to the characters on the show and can tell you their back stories better than probably some of the writers. She is really fascinated by the procedural aspect of this show in a way that she never found shows like CSI or NCIS as interesting.

This week in her Writing Class at school they are supposed to write a first person story about any subject they want. She is writing a fan fiction story in which she uncovers a skeleton while on a trip with her dad and gets to meet Temperance Brennan and Seeley Booth (The main characters of the show) and actually go to the Jeffersonian (the lab where Dr. Brennan works).

I suppose her active imagination comes naturally enough. There are writers all over my side of the family. Two of her siblings write fan fiction stuff on Internet sites, so she is familiar with the genre from them. It shouldn't come as any surprise that she would write something like this for class. I am really looking forward to reading it.

I just hope I don't end up the dead body in the story (it could happen, who knows how her mind works, she is an almost teen-ager after all).

Maybe we should send it into Hart Hanson when she completes it, just in case he is looking for another idea for next year's plot lines.
