Great chapter! I loved it. I would have reviewed sooner but I'm on holiday right now. I so totally plan to read whatever stories you've written when I get back on the 17th of July! Keep up the good work and know I'm rooting for you! Can't wait to see what happens.

have a wonderful time on holiday; you'll be sorely missed! Hour will be completed by the time you arrive home--not guaranteeing anything else by then, though! ;)

*Laughs* I look forward to reading it and I'll probably post some reviews just for the heck of it to add my two cents. Have fun!!

Oh, that's lovely, and so them. It makes me feel all snuggly. :D

it was pleasant to see them not at odds for a change, wasn't it? :)

they're on speaking terms again. goody. I'd almost say they're happy again, but then they're never really happy. Way too screwed up. But you make it work. The screwed-up-ness and the good-ness. :-) And all this while staying IC. If I was wearing a hat I'd take it off.

they're never really happy

look at it this way; if they were happy, there'd be no reason for angst. and then we wouldn't be happy! see, it's a trade-off. :)

Now my good side: I want them to be happy and my bad side I want lots of H/W angst are fighting furiously...

Good thing is that I can't influence what happens on the show, so I'll get lots of H/W angst, without having to make my good side lose! *gg*

As interesting as it is to watch those two fight, it's even more satisfying to see them on friendly terms

and as challenging as writing 'house and wilson at odds' is (and i do love a good challenge), it's much more fun to write the occasional warm and fluffy scene--this one is one of my favorites, as well.

"He went to bat for me. Went in there thinking he was turning himself in. Came all the way out here to deliver the news in person. And now, the renowned Dr. House is cleaning and bandaging a simple stab wound, with all the concentration I’d give a biopsy. Least I can do is let him think his secret’s safe."

Ah, yes... THERE'S the balance again, that amazing gift that has kept me tantalized, teased, and distracted, in the best possible ways. You were rushing a bit, imo, w/the good stuff last chapter and a little bit with this one just in the beginning, as relieved as the rest of us, I think, that the worst was over (presumably. Admittedly, I shouldn't assume... you have already proven a certain delightful, blessedly-familiar evileness elsewhere), causing some things to read a bit awkwardly to me, so I'm very glad to see you regain control over the flow after the first few paragraphs in this chapter. This is such a wonderful tale... it deserves the very best, and overall, you are channeling it with much skill and dexterity. I thank you again for that.

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Wilson twitting House!!! SO funny, so touching, so very IC-ly true... and a much-needed humor break. Well done!!!

"Wilson says slowly, “That means that both of us are in the clear. Both of us.” He looks at House with just the smallest bit of hope in his eyes." Why do I get the impression that if that weren't the case, Wilson would gently, but firmly, throw House out, so to speak???

"“Tritter made certain that they counted the scrips I forged into the total of what you’d written for me. Put you in clear violation of the Controlled Substances Act. He knew that if anyone caught it, said anything, you’d have to admit, in court, that you knew about the forgeries. Otherwise, he’d call in his handwriting experts, his DEA contacts. Subpoena a few pharmacists, run a few security tapes for the jury. He’d have us both.” House stops talking and peers at Wilson to make sure he’s following. When Wilson nods thoughtfully at him, House continues.

“But it was in Tritter’s best interest that you take this deal. Because it turns out that he was wrong from the start. The search on my apartment never should have happened. Doyle says that nothing that followed should’ve happened either.”" Thank'ee's for this - it's adding thoughts to my brain about how to structure my own version of the Tritter Arc.

"“That means they’re removing the sanctions from your license. You’ll practice medicine again.” " Not to seriously disparage the gift, but as a far-down-the-list-benefit, House will also have Wilson back at work w/him, to pesticate and steal food from. ;->

"“Impressive differential, House,” Wilson concedes with a smile. “Accurate as always.” " YES!!!! Acceptance of gifts, and dare we hope it, some learning as well???

Eagerly reading on,

PS - You're most welcome!!! And thank YOU for the compliment!!! Glad to know the length wasn't driving you crazy... I'm never quite sure what's appropriate. -K
