Cats' Corners: the little HOUSE in the woods....
Where House is NEVER safe...
And It All Comes Down To This... [EPILOGUE] 
20th-Jul-2007 10:28 am
Title:  And It All Comes Down To This... (EPILOGUE)
Characters:  House, Wilson
Rating:  PG
Genre:  Angst
Words:  700
Summary:  Pain caused House to take inventory of his life, to figure out just what it's cost him.  Now, three weeks later, he's forced to redo the math.  This is the epilogue to the piece I posted yesterday, which can be found  here.  

And by the way--you can blame thank  nightdog_barks   and blackmare   for the twenty-four hour delay in posting this, because they're evil they felt each piece would have more impact if presented separately.  That's what they said, I swear!  :)

You have such a way with words that it makes me ache for the characters. Not only for House but for Wilson too. Somehow you bring out these emotions in me when I read your stories. I don't know how you do it.

Loved Turnabout. Such a wonderfully written glimpse inside Wilson's head as he discovers what is really going on with House.

by my standards, wilson deserves as much sympathy/empathy as house does--if not more. i'd think having to watch what house goes through, and not be able to make it better, must be its own special kind of hell.

Loved Turnabout

isn't it just amazing? can't tell you how fortunate i feel to have been the recipient of that stunning little piece.

These are just lovely!

glad you enjoyed; 'twas satisfying to write, although i was ambivalent about 'interfering' with what i saw as the brutal truth of the first part. still somewhat ambivalent, still glad epilogue exists, though. because without epilogue, blackmare's Turnabout wouldn't exist, and the sheer loveliness of that is worth a few mixed feelings about this!

It hurts.

I know.

I could just visualize that perfectly. Bravo and yay for the angst-fest!

*sighs* See, I was trying to avoid turning on my computer at ALL this weekend because I didn't want a repeat of two years ago *swears vehemently under breath*...but...Toshiba's recall scare forced me to and now you're distracting me, too. I've been rereading my previous HP books, you see, and wanted to see how far through the previous six I could get before midnight when the seventh is released. I have two hours and fifty-five minutes left and I resolve to remain as spoiler-free as I have since December when the title was released. Thanks to vast effort, I only know two details about this final book and I intend to keep it that way.

Anyway, back on topic. OF COURSE I'LL CLICK THE LINK. I might as well enjoy myself and possibly try to distract myself from the fact that my pre-ordered copy (which has been for three months and last night I got a recorded message from Borders in the voice of the guy who does the audio book readings saying it would be waiting for me) is sitting right down the damned street at the Borders not five minutes from my house.

*squirms* Anyway. *clicks*

*sighs* I wonder if 'Excuse' is going to buck canon anymore than it already has simply by adding House to the mix. I wonder if I'll be able to continue writing it at all... Hm. *ponders*

Anyway. *giggles and really clicks this time*

but did you like the epilogue? did you... uh... read the epilogue?
21st-Jul-2007 03:21 am (UTC)
So Wilson isn't a complete imbecile. That's good to know. *grin* You know you have this habit of showing all of Wilson's sides; good and bad. Thanks for that. It makes me happy. And I'm glad House found his two things, even if they both still need to have something knocked into them.

this habit of showing all of Wilson's sides; good and bad

because he's human, and fallible. still, he puts up with house--which makes him more perceptive than most. even when he's in a clueless!wilson cycle, and thus blind to what house needs, he intrigues me. in his own way, he's every bit as fascinating a character as house.

Aw, that's better. Wilson should look at House more often.

21st-Jul-2007 03:28 pm (UTC)
Wilson should look at House more often

you made me think, with the above observation. we should all look more often at the people we love, shouldn't we? sorry for going all philosophical here; your comment just got me... pondering. thanks!

Just wanted to leave a separate comment, in case you've already read the Epilogue, but missed out on the update, and happen to be tracking this page. blackmare has written a devastatingly beautiful addition to the epilogue--from Wilson's point of view. It is right here . Enjoy!

Beautiful, haunting piece....

The slight distance imposed by your choice of perspective only adds to the power of the story - like looking at the world through a rain-strewn window.

Wonderful also how you delicately pull hope from the threads of despair. And yes, tho' I grumble b/c I almost missed it altogether, the delay in posting did indeed make the impact even stronger. (Reminds me also of the good old days of reader-tormenting in my other fandom. Now I remember why we did it - beyond the obvious fun one can have in doing so.)

Thank you so much for sharing this....
12th-Aug-2007 03:31 am (UTC) - Great
As usual your have done a great job of making me feel what is happening. The mark of a good author
I know life is busy but I am awaiting a new piece.
Thanks for what you do.

Hi Sweetie, Can't find any posts since this one. They were both lovely by the way. Hope you are just taking a little rest and will be back soon. I feel you are one of the top three writers out there, maybe the best and I look forward to more. Hurry back,ok?
12th-Oct-2007 09:02 pm (UTC) - Re: vacation
well... there hasn't been much since this one--but i did write a very small add-on to one of blackmare's pieces, just a couple of days ago. you can find that right here!

Oh my gosh, how I've missed your exquisite work. This was stunningly beautiful. The wordless conversation was perfection. I've got to go back and see what else I've missed the past few months. Excellent as always. It's nice to know that you're consistently good work is something I can count on. Hope all is well witih you. :)

Wow. This is great.

"It hurts"

"I know"

that part was just... wow. I don't even know how to explain it!
