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 )

Oh...Thank you for that! It had to be written. I know only very little bit about medicine and this sort of things but "that" scene made me sick. Poor House - why not at least local anesthesia for that liver biopsy...and then he got up....as like nothing's happend and nobody cared about him after the transfusion, OD and three invasive biopsies.. : (
Well Wilson did, but not to much either.

13 really scared me, now I simply hate her. And of course there was also lack of Wilson in this ep.

So your fic made it better for me. I love Wilson when he's all caring and House when he's vulnerable and I love how he really trust only Wilson.

“You’re a pain in the ass, House, but I love you anyway.”
I love this line so much!

I'm just completely in love with this. It fits, perfectly. I have nothing to say, and for a change it's not because I'm too busy, but because this story says it all, and beautifully.
I love how you go back and fix the worst mistakes of TPTB. This embodies everything that makes me a hardcore kidsnurse and mj fan. Thanks for writing and sharing it. :)

you. just. made. my. night. seriously.

was [am] lying in bed [bit of difficulty today], wishing i'd posted this vignette tonight instead, as the lovely glow from the comments was beginning to wear off, and the reaction from the pit's been underwhelming [remind me again why i take the trouble to post over there?], and i'm waiting none too patiently for whateveritis that i took to kick in [it was white. and bitter. and football-shaped [omg--if it was a tramadol, just kill me now, okay?]. and i was thinking that i'm pretty much useless.

and then, your comment came in. and i was reminded of my tiny contribution to the world. and now, i might be in a wee bit of pain, and i might really think my pharmacist's switched my oxycontin for placebos, and he's home flying without wings tonight--but at least you made me remember that as a writer who doesn't need a sound leg, i do okay. many, many thanks!! *hugs*

So, what happened? Did they cut this scene because they ran out of time? Because, obviously, this is EXACTLY how the episode really ended.

Great as always.

P.S. I thought acetaminophen isn't really an NSAID. But I trust you to know better than I do.

thank you--made me smile. widely.

and yes, i know tylenol/acetaminophen/paracetamol isn't an NSAID, but since i've had this go-round four times today, just read this thread, bottom of first comment page, between silja_b and me. please? ;)

I didn't have time to read this before, but I'm quite glad I got around to it.

This is how the show should go. In a coherent, correct manner.

Lovely job. ♥

why, thank you! someone had to acknowledge that fact that house needed--and deserved--to be treated with as much concern [and compassion] as any other patient who'd endured what he did that day. it was truly bugging me, so i had to 'fix' it. i was surprised--and pleased--to discover that so many others share my feelings about that scene.
24th-Nov-2007 02:49 pm (UTC) - So Happy
I can't tell you how happy I was to return home from my in-laws to find you had written this piece. I knew if anyone could provide closure it would be you. I also knew that someone had to fix the ending. As much as I loved the episode, it drove me crazy that it ended the way it did. This was so needed. You are awesome! Thanks for this. :))
24th-Nov-2007 03:00 pm (UTC) - Re: So Happy
you are so very welcome. i agree; it had to be fixed. and i can't believe that the show's writers would work so hard to create a character who forces the viewers to care about him, whose health [both emotional and physical] is questionable at the best of times--and then just... just... leave him in a potentially dangerous situation, without another word! it still makes me angry that they blithely left it to us amateurs to 'fix' their grievous error.
24th-Nov-2007 04:28 pm (UTC)
This was exactly the closure I needed for that episode. The rampant stupidity... ugh. But this was phenomenal. Wilson is such a sweetheart, and he and House were both perfectly in character. It was especially lovely to see the friendly banter!
24th-Nov-2007 07:15 pm (UTC)
verry happy to be able to provide closure for you; thanks for letting me know you enjoyed it!
24th-Nov-2007 05:18 pm (UTC)
Awww. That was so great. Love your Wilson.<3
24th-Nov-2007 07:18 pm (UTC)
i'm still nostalgic for our sweet S1 wilson, and sometimes it shows in my writing. i'd like to hope that S4 wilson would do exactly as i had him do in this vignette--and i'll continue to hope....

thanks for taking the time to comment!

I started reading your fic but since I didn't read your rant yesterday -because I'm up to '97 seconds' only :-( - I realized that maybe it was better not to go on so as not to be spoiled. But...what happened to House? Did his potential fellow hurt him someway ?! Or is it something you wrote for your fic?
Well, please, ignore my questions....or...try not to tell me everything but just a little bit :-)
I'm looking forward to watching the new episodes, but I usually watch them with three friends of mine and recently we could'nt find a day to be together . It's no good!
25th-Nov-2007 01:37 am (UTC)
lol--anything i say would be a spoiler, and yes, this story is a tag for what actually occurred in the episode. hope you're able to get caught up soon!!
25th-Nov-2007 01:33 am (UTC)
That man, only wants food. I'm glad Wilson was worried about him though, I wasn't sure how concerned he was during the episode. (It still was awesome though! "You're going to run off now, aren't you?") I'm glad to see you make a fill in, er, rather an extension of the episode. Great job!
25th-Nov-2007 01:40 am (UTC)
i would've liked to have seen a bit more compassion--or at least a little concern--from wilson as well. S1 wilson would have been able to just look at house with those melting eyes, and we'd have known how worried he was without his having to say a single word! where has that wilson gone?

oh well. in our little world of fiction, at least, he still exists! :)

“House….” Wilson begins tentatively. “Those kids endangered you. And they don’t even seem sorry. Why are you taking this so calmly?” That was one of my big questions after that episode. I'm so glad you wrote this fic, tackled all those issues. The episode opened the doors for all those topics, but never really did anything with them, and I'm so happy you did. Wonderful.

Those Cheerios targets floating in the bowl really did the trick. LOL. Do people really use a tactic like that? I've never heard of it. Hilarious if they do, though. The "warm water" remark was such a nice touch. :)

I write comments as I read, because I'd hate to leave something out, and I was just about to comment on the line that remarked on the odd nature of his reaction to the day's events. But it turns out that it was almost exactly what came next in the story. Glad to know that I was on the same wavelength there. Hee.

It's cute that Wilson says that he loves him, like this could-have-been-near-death-experience got him to return the sentiment that House uttered after the electrocution near-death experience. I loved that.
25th-Nov-2007 06:03 am (UTC)
house's acceptance of what happened really shook me--and i hope it's something that the writers continue to address [i also hope to win the lottery, and to one day see a flying pig]. the 'old' house would've fired all of 'em as soon as he regained consciousness, even those not involved in the actual drugging and subsequent biopsies--because in not notifying cuddy, in allowing cole and 13 to perform unwarranted invasive procedures, they were complicit [and btw--how the bloody hell did they get away with moving an unconscious house from his office to a treatment room without once being questioned?]

yup--moms of boys have been using the 'toilet target' trick for years; they even sell colorful floating biodegradable thingies for that very purpose!

and you caught on precisely as to why i had wilson utter 'i love you'! glad you enjoyed it, and i appreciate your thoughtful comments!!
25th-Nov-2007 05:26 pm (UTC)
Lovely :)

thanks so much--glad you enjoyed!!

A loverly fill-in for some of the off-camera scenage. :-)(We will just pretend that if they'd had more time, it would have been in there, and life will be much better.:->)

I love your take on things and the knowledge that you share. Who knew that dramatic telly, and fandom, for that matter, could be so educational? :-D

If it helps any, I've noticed that the writers take a very fluid approach to time and are not always the greatest at giving cues as to how much time has actually passed. I don't think it helps in this instance, I think that was just a mistake or an example of House's combination of self-abuse and bullheadedness, but it might in other places.

Small thing... give me a font size. One size only, please. (Sorry. Had a 'Hunt for Red October' moment there. :-D) Not that it's the end of the world to go back and forth from 'Largest' back to 'medium', but it would be nice not to have to do so.

Great to see you back! And there is more too! Great incentive to continue with the typing w/loverly fics as reward - thank'ee's!!! :-)
2nd-Dec-2007 05:45 pm (UTC)
dunno what your font problem is--but it seems, after checking with other readers and logging on from my son's laptop and not seeing a problem--it might be confined to your machine. i'm sorry!
