Cats' Corners: the little HOUSE in the woods....
Where House is NEVER safe...
A Warm Welcome To Cats' Corners!
The title of this journal is, indeed, the name of my home, a small, weathered Cape Cod-style house in the woods of central Florida.

But I also write fan fiction for the television show House, and I can't resist wordplay; hence the additions to the title.

There are some boring things in here. The good news is that these are all clearly marked with [personal entry]. If you've come here looking for my fiction, the Links To the Fics box on your right will take you to the individual stories. If you're looking for a list of the pieces, with summaries, ratings, and original dates of publication, it's in the Index on your right.

Also, be certain to check out the box on the right entitled Notes From the Author. It'll give you an idea of what I'm currently working on or thinking about.

Enjoy your sojourn through Cats' Corners; I'm glad you're here!

29th-Nov-2007 01:12 pm - Reparations [new one-shot]
Title:  Reparations
Rating:  PG
Characters:  Wilson, House
Summary:  It's House's second day back at work following Rehab--and he has something to share with Wilson.
Genre:  Angst, Friendship
A/N:   This rather short one-shot came to me out of nowhere this morning; i believe that it may have been inspired by a discussion with   leaveout    following my take yesterday on episode 4.09.  And for an amazing drive-by beta, heartfelt thanks to the wonderful, invaluable   blackmare_9   !
P.S.  Yeah--you might've read this yesterday.  But then, because I continued to revise it several times after posting--and because I had a crisis of confidence based on a very weird combination of factors all coming together at the same time, I locked it.  And this morn, all those factors have been put into perspective, I've [well, some bitter white tablets have--finally] gotten a handle on an unusually bad spate of pain, and I'm finished sitting out in the garden, munching on the worms  blackmare_9  so generously offered to fry.  So I ask your indulgence with that little blip on my radar.  Here's the story, again, with a zillion minor [and likely unnecessary] revisions. I apologize.



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 )
*** edited to include even more ranting, and also a link to a great Lisa Edelstein interview, 11.21.07 at 5:00pm.

I've been attempting to figure out the whys behind my months-long inability to produce anything in the way of decent fiction, and the only thing I can come up with is that I've been reading.  And all I've managed are some very short one-shots which--quite honestly--I wasn't happy with.  I just went back and reread them, and they feel forced, and incomplete.

So, for the next week or so, I won't be around much, and I won't be reading any fiction at all--not even the MSTs, which have never interfered with my voices at all, but I'm getting so frustrated with my 'dry spell' that I don't want to take even that minimal chance.

This may, or may not, work at all, but I've gotta try.  Wish me luck!


 koda has finally decided upon a Halloween costume; the child who bears a startling resemblance to the young RSL wants to be House!!!  Now, he already has the authentic, flame-emblazoned cane, he can limp on his right leg like a pro (mommy was his role model--hee), we got the stuff for fake facial stubble, and spray to gray his hair.  he's going to wear jeans, his orange and gray nike sneakers, and my "everybody lies" t-shirt.  what i need help with is this:  i know that--somewhere on the net--there exists a mock-up of house's hospital ID badge--and i NEED that graphic, desperately!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

ETA:   Thanks, everyone!  Once again, you've demonstrated why the House fandom is simply the best.  Hugs to you all; you've made my kid verrrrrry happy--which, of course, makes me ecstatic!

27th-Oct-2007 03:41 pm - BLACKMARE_9: An Essay
I am pleased to be posting this for its author, the absolutely amazing blackmare_9  because--as many of us do--she's got some very good RL friends who read and enjoy her journal, but who... uh... might not understand her interest in fanfiction.  I think that we all know how that can go.  ;-)  And I'm happy to be posting this for her because I feel her opinions have merit, and I agree wholeheartedly with everything she's so eloquently stated.

Title:  What House Knows
Rating:  PG
Genre:  Friendship, a bit of angst
Summary:  House knows he's put Wilson in a tough position--but he has his reasons.

Occasionally, it crosses House's mind that this may put his best friend in a less-than-comfortable position.Collapse )

See that new user icon?  It's from a sketch by the multi-talented [info]blackmare_9 , and it inspired this one-shot. [info]blackmare_9   has somehow captured Wilson's pervasive sadness, his elusive vulnerability, and I began to wonder why I almost always detect something poignant whenever we see Wilson studying House.  And  this piece is Wilson's answer.  [dedicated, for obvious reasons, to the incredible  [info]blackmare_9 ]

Title:  What Wilson Knows
Rating:  PG

Wilson knows something that no one else seems to have yet figured out--not even House.Collapse )


13th-Oct-2007 11:57 am - Wondering [companion to Knowing]
Title:  Wondering
Rating:  G
Characters:  Wilson, House [friendship]
Summary:  This is a long overdue companion piece to Knowing, in which House explores his belief about why Wilson stays, and what could cause him to leave.  In Wondering, it's Wilson's turn to explore the question--and to answer it.

12th-Oct-2007 01:40 pm - Two Ancient One-Shots

Whilst attempting to do an index for my stories, I discovered that still I had two one-shots over at the Pit that hadn't migrated over here.  So, here they be:
