[[WMG: ''Series/{{Bones}}'' is provably not taking place in our world.]]
In "The Secret in the Service", the team encounters the Secret Service, who are preparing for the President's visit on a fundraising stop. This means that the President has to be just finishing his first term, meaning that a) he's not BarackObama, and b) he beat whoever was holding the office from 2009-2012. Confirmed when the President is shown to be a white guy named Randall.

In that episode he mentions "a bearded guy" who's the only gambler we don't meet and has an alibi for that episode's murder. [[ChekhovsGunman If he's that unimportant why mention him at all?]] Even if the bearded guy turns out to actually be unimportant Booth still discovered a secret gambling ring whose bosses could be rather upset an FBI agent managed to get in and hack their security cameras regardless of the fact that after arresting the suspect Booth doesn't care about the ring (at least not professionally).

[[WMG: Bones doesn’t actually share a continuity with Series/SleepyHollow.]]
“The Resurrection in the Remains” showed a crossover with Series/SleepyHollow and “Dead Men Tell No Tails” (of that show) returned the favour, which would seem pretty clear cut to show that Bones and Series/SleepyHollow now share a universe.

This has several implications for Bones fans because it implies that a universe mostly established as being set in the natural world (with just a little MaybeMagicMaybeMundane now and then) is actually set in a very supernatural world and just not aware of it.

However, there does exist an alternative that Bones didn’t really crossover with the real Series/SleepyHollow at all. Instead, the possibility exists that Bones crossed over with an alternate continuity of Series/SleepyHollow while Series/SleepyHollow then crossed over with an alternate continuity of Bones.

“The Resurrection of the Remains” avoided showing any explicit supernatural elements but did show some things which would seem to imply that the supernatural had to exist (even if Bones didn’t accept it). Firstly, there’s the letter that was somehow written in Ichabod’s handwriting 200 years ago. Second, the episode ended with Ichabod talking about how he’d known Benjamin Franklin

The alternative explanation to how this happened is that Bones merely crossed over with an alternate version of Sleepy Hollow without the supernatural elements in which Ichabod Crane (not his real name) was in fact a con man who was pretending to be a man who’d lived 200 years earlier. He’d adopted this man’s name and identity after reading everything he could about him. Knowing people might do a handwriting comparison between the two, he taught himself how to forge the man’s handwriting and now exclusively writes in that man’s style.

That explains why Angela was able to match their handwriting and why Ichabod claimed to know Franklin. It was all part of the con.

Meanwhile Ichabod Prime (as I shall now call him to distinguish him from Ichabod Alternate who is the fraud) along with Abbie Prime met with Brennan and Booth Alternate (who were basically the same as Brennan and Booth Prime except living in a supernatural world) and together they shared a continuity.

** They'd never do it, since StephenFry ''is'' a Timelord and wouldn't want to give people that strong a hint.

* Given that the series is now confirmed to share a universe with ''Series/SleepyShollow'', this gets a lot more plausible.

* The only inconsistency is that Zack has a large family. Gormogon is all about [[spoiler:the Widow's Son]], or is that only for their victims? So would [[spoiler:Zack even qualify for the job as Apprentice?]]

** And maybe Mal is descended from Booth as well, through Parker. Wash through Hodgins and Angela. Book through Caroline. Inara through Arastoo. Zoe through Wendell. Jayne through Fisher. Yes, this troper actually thought about this.

* Or, considering the writers are obviously huge fans of the works of JossWhedon, it's a fanfic set in a unified Whedonverse. The Dollhouses would fit right in, the supernatural already exists and an artist daughter of a rockstar invented holograms.

She studies bones to understand the physical aspect. "[[CatchPhrase I don't know what that means]]" is her response to learning about the cultural aspect. This theory was brought up by Sweets in his CharacterBlog entry for the episode "The Finder."
