Cats' Corners: the little HOUSE in the woods....
Where House is NEVER safe...
Transfusions, Tampering, Tests... Tenderness and Trust [one-shot] 
22nd-Nov-2007 08:07 pm
Title:  Transfusions, Tampering, Tests... Tenderness and Trust
Rating:  PG
Characters:  House, Wilson
Genre:  Angst, Friendship, Hurt/Comfort
Summary:  After the events of House's extra-rough day, Wilson plays doctor, psychiatrist--and friend.  Short,  quickly written tag for House episode 4.08, You Don't Want To Know.  

  Those of you who read my rant yesterday will recognize this as my attempt to correct a bit of the medicine that the episode overlooked.  Also, an attempt to mitigate my own symptoms of Wilson Withdrawal.  Oh, and Happy Thanksgiving, everyone! 


House is lying on the couch when Wilson enters, looking frighteningly fragile....Collapse )

Thank you!! Thank you!! this was beautiful and perfect!! I truly wish this is what happened in the episode. Damn I wish it was called the House and Wilson show :)

I love how you tied this up so nicely, and your characterizations are right on. Nice. :-)

YOU'RE WRITING! *celebrates* And...wheeeeeeee! Yes, that's pretty much all I can say. That and I wonder if Wilson will go to Cuddy to have Thirteen committed. Or something. *looking at that scene with even more horror now*

i'm trying to write. this one was born of frustration and sadness for house, poor thing.

I do love your fics. They are so great and emphatetically written. Reading this story was my start in the workday and I guess now I´m prepared for the little bug (little bug is my nick for my boss. He isn´t tall and he is annoying me whenever he find the possibility).
Thank you so much for this wonderful fic. I do enjoyed reading it.

you're welcome! always happy to try to right some wrongs--especially against house, who most certainly didn't deserve any of that!

Thank you ! this is what I was expecting on the show, and once more, I was disappointed...But you're here and you make things right, in a brilliant way at that.
I think you (and all of us, readers) understand and love House & Wilson more than the writers.
Beautiful scene, so sensitive and moving.

thank you, and i'm happy to have been able to right some wrongs.

I would love this story anyway (correct medical details = yum), but I love it even more for sorting out at least some of the crappiness of the episode (and don't get me started on getting a liver biopsy by stabbing somebody, never mind all the rest of it...)

(I read your rant too, btw, and WORD to all of it.)

"You’re a pain in the ass, House, but I love you anyway."

Awww. That's why I love those two.

writing this story made me feel muchbetter--glad it helped you as well!
23rd-Nov-2007 08:58 am (UTC)
This was sweet. I love the idea of House feeling unsettled by the lack of control on what was happening to him, and Wilson taking care of him.
also, "Lately, it seems anytime I’m handed a beverage, my state of mind is significantly altered." lol. Poor House. Even if he deserved some of what happened, for sure he didn't deserve everything.

glad you liked!!

Wonderful! Thank you so much!

The medicine in that episode was so awful even for me, who know nothing about this kind of procedures.

Honestly I can't understand House's passivity and acceptance: so he thinks he deserves everything bad that happens to him and forgives everybody. Ok. Do they forget about Stacy? They don't remember the love of his life? The person that under a lot of pressure took a decision out of his hands and tried to save his life and was never forgiven? What about the deterioration of the H/W friendship during the Tritter arc, again because someone, who loves him, took a decision from him?

Sorry about my rant... But that plot point really annoyed me...

But your fic makes everything better. With lots of Wilson. Like it should be in the episode. All the episodes. Wilson can make everything better!

absolutely! you made many great points. and i'm glad my little story could improve things for you!!

I completely missed your rant (probably by virtue of not having you on my f-list) but I largely agree in so far as the medical issues go. I'm not entirely sure about the alternative though. I'm always torn on the issue between the need for medical accuracy and the demands of rapid story-telling. I don't mind that they bend the facts here and there. I start objecting when they're factually wrong (ABO...WHAT?!) or make mistakes that directly impact characterisation (huh?!...pain management...huh?!). This time they were merrily dancing back and forth across the line. On one hand, I'm not interested in watching House being observed for 24 hours (which IMO would be the sensible thing) - it'd be dull as dishwater. On the other hand, it annoys me that they chose such a glib approach.

I really like this story. It addresses the issues well. I was thoroughly confused by his outward acceptance of being drugged and skewered. It's not how I'd expect him to react but I understand the argument that he'd do the same thing if needed and must feel that the applicants gave him a dose of his own medicine so to speak. Either way, the show did skip some essential details.

*psst* paracetamol isn't an NSAID

paracetamol isn't an NSAID

known as acetaminophen here. and yeah--i know. so... trying again [answered this a few comments up]. it is my contention that house takes large doses of NSAIDS [my guess, judging from my own experience, would be ibuprofen, probably 1200mg/day, 600 morning and night] as the combo increases the pain relieving efficacy of both the hydrocodone and the ibuprofen. i once had a friend who had chronic pain and an allergy to NSAIDs. Her doctor told her, whenever she'd claim her meds weren't working, that it was a pity she could take only tylenol [acetaminophen/paracetamol] to supplement, as it hasn't the necessary anti-inflammatory properties. and with house, in my opinion and from my own experience, as i said upthread, taking ibuprofen for chronic pain is as boring and necessary and not worth mentioning as taking laxatives for the constipation hydrocodone causes!

[added you to f-list]

awww.... that's nice...

Thank you. I was ticked off at the casual attitude toward the liver biopsy. Uh, hello? Why was House even up after that? That whole scene made me shiver, and not in a good way. Just whom is House hiring? Yikes!

I love the care and concern here. And the references to previous events. Lovely.
23rd-Nov-2007 04:48 pm (UTC)
yes--this just... needed to be done, for a lot of reasons. and still? i'm astounded at the number of people who were as unsettled as i was by how shoddily treated house was. but i'm enjoying having my own feelings validated so loudly. thank you!
23rd-Nov-2007 05:33 pm (UTC)
This was WONDERFUL, darling! I'd say more, but I'm currently lost in the wilds on a dial-up connection, so I'll just say--I love it! And thank you.
23rd-Nov-2007 05:38 pm (UTC)
*pats perspi comfortingly over dial-up*

i'm especially honored, then, that you'd utilize some of your frighteningly limited bandwith to comment! ;) thank you, and i'm so happy you liked it!
23rd-Nov-2007 06:02 pm (UTC)
That was beautiful, I loved it. <3
23rd-Nov-2007 06:13 pm (UTC)
many thanks!
23rd-Nov-2007 06:18 pm (UTC)
Why not write a sequel to this?

but what would happen in that sequel...i am lacking in suggestions.
23rd-Nov-2007 06:21 pm (UTC)
am lacking in suggestions

me too--hence the term 'one-shot'! ;) but thanks for the comment, and the encouragement!!
