Tony and Roxie [Bones; Booth/Brennan]  
TITLE: Tony and Roxie
PAIRING: Booth/Brennan
SPOILERS: "The Woman in the Sand" (2x08)


When they were out the door of Joe Nolan's gym, Booth chuckled and dropped his arm from around his partner's slender waist. "Wow, Bones! Are you sure you're not an actress?"

"I was never big on theater," she responded in her normal tone, no longer sporting Roxie's thick New York accent. "People dressing up in costumes, pretending to be something they're not... I've never seen the appeal."

"That's what we're doing now, Bones."

"For a case."

"Well..." A devilish glint lit his eyes, and Brennan grew wary at the sight of his Cheshire grin. "Let's try it for fun!"

"Booth, no. What's the point?"

"Come on, Bones, it's Vegas! Plenty of people come here pretending to be people they're not and have a blast!"

Brennan narrowed her eyes at her partner and wasn't sure if it was exhaustion, or the martini "Roxie" had earlier, but it didn't sound like that terrible an idea. "Just for a little while, right? Not the rest of the trip or anything."

Booth shook his head. "Absolutely not. Just for two hours. For two hours, Bones, we'll be Tony and Roxie. Then everything goes back to normal."

So "Tony and Roxie" made their way back to the strip and decided to take in the sights, like any normal couple.

"Whoa, hey!"

Booth's (Tony's) hand on her arm stopped Brennan (Roxie) in her tracks, and she turned to look at him. "Booth, what's wrong?"

He made a face at her. "Who the hell's Booth? You ain't been foolin' around with other guys behind my back, right baby?"

She caught on and flipped back into her role. "'Course not Tony, you're all the man I need!" Roxie cooed back.

"Good." He draped his arm over her shoulders and pulled her in close, gesturing ahead of them. "Check it out, babe. It's the Bellagio fountains."

Brennan and Roxie both were captivated by the sight of the dancing water, a childlike awe overtaking her briefly. Roxie snuggled in close to her beau and nuzzled his cheek with her nose. "I'd love to jump in there and splash around. We could get all..." she pecked his cheek and murmured seductively, "wet."

She wasn't sure if it was Booth or Tony that looked over at her in shock. All she knew was that whoever he was at the moment, he was gripping her tight around the waist, and she didn't mind in the slightest. "Maybe we should get you back to that hotel room," he chuckled.

Then, crazy-in-love Tony and Roxie seemed to take over; his hand slipped under her hair as they both laughed at the banter, and he pulled her in close. Before she knew what was happening, their lips were sealed together in an intense kiss and she was pressed flush against him. Against Tony.

But when his head tilted and his lips softened, it was suddenly Booth that was kissing her. And she was kissing back as Brennan. Their alter egos faded into the background, as did all the other thousands of tourists crowding the streets as they stayed fused tight together, from lips to hips. His hands gripped her waist tightly as he ground against her, and her moan was what finally broke the kiss.

They stared at each other through half-lidded eyes and Booth dumped them both back to reality as he murmured, "Maybe this was a bad idea."

When she took a step back, he realized what he'd said and moved to correct it. "The whole 'pretending' thing, not the--"

"No, you're right." She nodded in agreement, carefully avoiding his gaze, and casting an almost accusing glance down at her tight dress. Roxie got her into this jumbled mess of confusion. "Maybe we should go back to the hotel and get out of these clothes. Just be ourselves."

She started walking ahead of him and Booth deflated at the brusque tone. But then he watched the way her hips swayed enticingly in front of him, and looked up to catch the almost-smoldering look she sent him over her shoulder, and he raised his eyebrows. Maybe business was the last thing on her mind.

He scampered after her. "Yes. Being ourselves, good idea." He looped his arm around her waist when he reached her and tugged her against him as they walked. "Who needs Tony and Roxie anyway? Tony's kind of a mook."

Brennan nodded in agreement, tilting her head. "And Roxie's a bit of a hussy."

Together they laughed and hurried to their hotel.


Dedication: to dollsome for the First Kiss meme!

Love it. And I didn't expect them to "break character" to end up in the hotel room. I thought you'd have them only able to really let go as other people, but I love that they found they could take it to another level just being themselves. :)

Thanks so much! I'm glad you liked it. I really wasn't planning on having them break character, but... the idea became too irresistible :D

Oh man! I loved that. The way they let go and become other people then realized they were better off being themselves. It was perfectly in character. :) Got a little waterworks going but that's some personal associations
