Cats' Corners: the little HOUSE in the woods....
Where House is NEVER safe...
The More Things Change... Chapter TWENTY-EIGHT 
6th-Jun-2007 09:55 am
Summary:  Wilson is given an unexpected opportunity to prove his friendship to House.  This story is my own attempt to make sense of the unsettling disruption of the House-Wilson dynamic in Season 3, so mention is made of many of the S3 plotlines and character development.  House-Wilson-Cuddy angst, hurt/comfort, introspection--my usual gig.  ;)  x-posted

"I'd...rather err on the side of life."

So true, so true.

You certainly enjoy scaring us all! *sips complacently at coffee whilst attempting to hide evil smirk behind cup* (now you just knew i couldn't go the entire day without mentioning coffee at least once, didn't you?)

I'm enjoying this story so much! I especially loved your Chase here.

loved your Chase here.

well, i had to redeem him somehow after the vent conflict, because he wasn't really wrong, and i honestly didn't want to paint him as 'the bad guy'.

Still wondering how House is going to react to this and if his kidneys are going to fail or not. Cuddy and Wilson both can do magic with the donor's list, but I think this is even bigger than those two. How could Chase just give up on what he believed like that? Dude, the guy really is a wuss. Wilson didn't tell him the truth. Gah... I'm confused about how I feel. Great job!

How could Chase just give up on what he believed like that?

i'm a bit confused myself, by what you think he gave up on? once house was placed on the vent, chase's obligation to give treatment stayed the same. i suppose he could've chosen to take himself off the case--but don't forget, he never said he AGREED with house's decision, he simply attempted to honor it.

I never said he agreed either. It just seemed like he went from being gong ho about following House's request to not being so much. Like I said I'm confused about what I think about Wilson's decison, Chase's joining that side of the argument, and House's desires. I'm fighting with my own morals (save at all costs), the right of the patient (can't force treatment they wouldn't want), my empathy and strong connection to House's thought process and wanting House to live. I think it comes from years of training that you can't force anyone to do what they don't want and even if you do, it rarely turns out like you want it to.

Trust me, I hate DNRs more than anyone else in the world, (Yes I know he didn't sign one)but I hate it when people go against others wishes to b/c others don't want something to occur. I've figured it out just as I was typing, this is too close for comfort to a real situation that happened in my family that I feel terribly guilty about. I'm sorry for babbling on and on, I think I needed to though. Earlier you said that I sounded too drawn up in the story, I've realized that it is b/c it is easier to figure out my feelings towards things in my own life b/c its not me handling it. Coping mechanism I guess. Anyhow great job, now get back to getting House some kidneys; I think he is going to need them.

I think I'm beginning to realize where this story is heading(with the kidney failure and all)but I'd rather not say.Maybe other readers took the hint as well.great jod and I guess it's gonna drag for at least another 28 chapters

lol--nah, it's not gonna go there! as a matter of fact, i pulled down the post to which i think you're referring, because i realized shortly after i wrote it that i'd inadvertently given the (quite wrong) impression that house was gonna be in the market for a kidney donor. that wasn't what i'd intended to say, but blackmare pointed out that it could easy be interpreted that way.

as to the length? there will be six more chapters (slim possibility of seven, if i get... verbose). and i really am terribly sorry for any misunderstanding my little dissertation caused, on house's hypothetical chances of finding a kidney donor--not even i would do that to those poor guys! ;)

thanks for clarifying things.House is suffering enough as it is without a transplant and more pills for the rest of his life on top of that.six more chapters?then I guess he'll start showing improvement real soon because up until now things are going from bad to worse!

Im running out of adjectives to describe the chapter lol =)

This was one of the best Bday presents!! Thank you =)

I just love Wilson. His love and care is just so deep and honest. No underlying motives (die Cameron, DIE!), no brovado, just deep, honest love for a friend. It just so pure... does it make sense?

I'm not the biggest Chase fan, but he did impress me. Thank you for that! I have rediscovered Foreman and wow, he's Chase. Not an a**kisser, but a talented doctor. I wish writers would show that a bit more lol

But, honestly, it was a wonderful chapter! I wonder if Cuddy picks up the conversation with House from where Wilson left off lol... Somehow I can picture her lecturing House about hanging in there and not giving poor Wilson any more grey hair!

Take care!

(By the way, I'm Dr. Fantabulous. Forgot to add that in my last review, titled so creatively, "Review!")
