It's Bonesday...sorta

According to the schedule there's a rerun of The Man in the Mud tonight. According to my DVR...it's baseball. Who knows!

But, it is technically a Bonesday. As hiatus fillers, I thought I'd post some various other ways people can enjoy Bones over the next few weeks.

Up first: Fanfiction!

We don't talk about that much here, as OWB is more focused strictly on the show. But, hey, fanfiction can be some good stuff! I've even written some (that I don't think is good) and read quite a bit more that is fantastic. Even those Bones scripts Jamie and I wrote are technically fanfiction.

And, for those of you who love Zack...you can check out a very sweet plot Jamie has written for him now, that sprang out of a joint discussion between us of what they could actually do with Zack if he's let out (other than defy all logic and reason and put him right back in the lab).

But, what I wanted to propose is this: If you like fanfiction, or write it yourself - share your favorites with the rest of the bunch. Is there a story you just love, that you want to see happen, or that's just a good read? Share it!

(If it's an M rated story, please note that.)

P.S. Mandi Bierly just put up a post on Popwatch about Fanfiction too!

Bones spoilers: Ausiello and Mega Buzz

Both EW's Ausiello and TV Guide's Mega Buzz have Bones spoilers out.

I enjoyed seeing "Jimmy Berluti" on Bones a few weeks back. Will there be any other new grad students pitching in at the Jeffersonian? — Gayle

Question: Seriously, I'm going crazy here. Are you really so horrible at your job that you can't come up with any Bones scoop, or have you just decided you hate Bones? Fifty trillion weeks and no Bones scoop? It's unbearable! -- Isabella

What do you think of these tidbits?
