This is the perfect followup to "Visiting Hours". It's so sad that it takes House getting blind drunk, to realize what he's wasted. I love the silent exchange between cabbie and bartender--they know, too.

PS, am friending you, just so you know. :-)

he has to get wasted to see what he's wasted--i like it! :)

I love the silent exchange between cabbie and bartender--they know, too.

that made me even sadder--poor, poor house..... :(

Thanks for directing me here. :) Excellent. Sad. So it goes.

I still don't know what House does with his days, though. You're going to have to continue or release it for others to play with. It's too good to end now.

for now, i'm choosing option one. as proof of that, part three will be up shortly!

I know there's going to be a third part, so YAY to that.
I also wanted to say, I know everybody wants a happy ending (me too deep down in my little broken heart), but, BUT if you decide to turn it into a sad ending, I'd be okay with that too. Sometimes things don't work out. And I will probably regret saying that in an hour or so, but right now, I feel like life doesn't have happy endings, so why should fics have them?!

*ducks*
Don't throw tomatoes at me now!!

BUT if you decide to turn it into a sad ending, I'd be okay with that too.

were it solely my choice, i'd guarantee a happy ending. but house and wilson are holding the reins rather tightly on this one, so i s'pose... we'll all see what happens...

Eep! I read both of these, and was suitably dismayed by the first one, then this one was worse!

I can't help thinking that House would deal better mentally with jail than Wilson would - but being separated from Wilson, however it happened, would be terrible for both.

I did like both fics, but in a not-liking way, if that makes sense(!)

I'm going to turn myself in to DumbassTritter.

now that is true devotion to our two favorite guys, and a lovely demonstration of extraordinary friendship towards house; i hearby name you "honorary wilson of the day"!

Oh. So depressing... But oh so good! :)

So depressing

brace yourself, dear--it's gonna get worse... :(

This is one vicious bunny, huh? I'm glad to see that "real force for good in the universe" line-it always bothered me that Wilson said statistically House was worth more than him. That was very sad.
I will follow this bunny wherever it goes.

Wilson said statistically House was worth more than him. That was very sad.

and i'm surprised that the script writers didn't do more with that statement. i, too, thought it one of the saddest things i've ever heard.

Greetings!

OMG.... Oh, I think I am going to be counting my blesssings that I've come in late, after it's all committed to paper and pixel - I'm not sure I could stand the wait.

So... he never told Wilson he got to keep his license, so as to keep the balance in the friendship by the fiction that they've both lost something important. Everybody lies... can have its positive side as well. I love it when authors remember this, and remember to show House's compassionate side. He does have one, tho' he strives to keep it safely hidden.

Again... I LOVE the ending. The moment when House is abruptly thrown out of his chosen escape. And I find it totally believable. I have friends that can do that - darn spooky.

Let us hope and pray that House doesn't throw away the gift he's been given by doing this too often, though. Wilson's done what he can to save him. It's now rather up to himself to do so.

Reading onward,

quick clarification; wilson knows house still has his license. in visiting hour the "lost medical license" that house doesn't like to be reminded about is wilson's--because of the guilt house feels.

i said 'the lost license' in order to keep it ambiguous, and not give away the ending at that point in the story; sorry for the confusion! and thanks so much for all your lovely, perceptive comments; i'm truly enjoying reading them!!

Ow sad... Oh poor House. I can just see him sitting there. And I can totally understand why he needed to go to a whole new bar.

On another note, found a typo... Look here - has a period that shouldn't be there Should feel that way, right?. (11th paragraph)
