Sleeping Man III: Settling the Score 1/2


Sleeping Man III: Settling the Score

Characters: House and Wilson
Rating: Gen
Timeline: The fall, around the time of Cane and Able
Summary: A brief epilogue for Sleeping Man I: Outside and Sleeping Man II: Inside. This won’t make sense unless you’ve read the earlier parts first.

1.
Since coming back from the dead, House had become something of a minor national celebrity, and when he alerted Police Department headquarters in Cambridge that he was arriving the next day, ostensibly for the simple purpose of retrieving the remains of his motorcycle, the Chief of Police himself insisted on meeting him.

Fic: Good For You
Characters: House and Foreman
Rating: Gen
Word Count: 3,150
Summary: Missing scene from Painless, Season Five, in which a reluctant Foreman helps House out
 

 
 

“Where are you going?”

 
“If Cuddy can come in late, I can go home early.” House slung his jacket over his shoulder and with an air of devil-may-care that was far too studied, slanted out the conference room door.

 

“Whoa,” said Thirteen, making a moue and looking around the room at her comrades. “What’s with him?”

 

Foreman slipped from his chair and stood in the doorway, watching House work his way down the hall.

 

“And what are you doing?” asked Taub.

 

It was all Foreman could do to keep from curling his lip in disdain. They had worked and lived with this man for how long now, and they still couldn’t read him, couldn’t pick up the most blatant signals. How could they call themselves diagnosticians? House made sure no one ever saw him grimace in pain, but it was hard to miss the serial Vicodin doses and the halting walk.Collapse )

It was fanon, now it's canon. Coincidence? Or *genius*?


From House's Head:
1.  "Either I'm massively drunk"...or I have a concussion. 
     Don't confuse the two! See Sleeping Man.
2. "I have a concussion. Retrograde amnesia. No cell phone. No keys. I've been mugged." 
    Yes, you have! See Sleeping Man.
 3. ETA: How could I forget this one: "Smell is the strongest...evokerator of memory." See the climax of Sleeping Man.


From Wilson's Heart:
1. The end of the bar scene: House forgets his cane when he gets really drunk. 
     See Gotta Run.
It was fanon. Now it's canon!

Coincidence? Or genius? You be the judge.

, she has done what I can't: provided H/W fans with a (moderately) slashy happy ending. Thanks, Dee!

Still to come: There are rumored to be other Epilogues out there being written. There's no timeline for submitting them. Send them in whenever you finish. Or, if you prefer, post them yourselves. We need some House/Cuddy endings to round out the field, n'est ce pas?

The drive back to House's apartment from the hospital was quick and, thankfully, quiet, as House's litany of demands had stopped.

As the bewigged Wilson rolled the bewigged House’s wheelchair through the lobby, they were stopped by the familiar voice of Emal Nercessian, an ER resident.

What the Critics are Saying: "This is sooooo not gay enough." ---HoYay Weekly

Wilson watched House perform for Jacoby and his team, doing his utmost to hide any weakness, but Wilson could see him flagging, growing paler and having difficulty concentrating. He finally shooed everyone out of House’s room, and then took his own leave, too. “I have to go do something about this,” he explained, pointing to his head with a grimace. “I can’t navigate the hospital with my back to the wall forever.”

The door to the room burst open and a furious Wilson stormed in, flung open the door to the bathroom, and stood there, staring into the mirror. “House!” he sputtered. “How could you? What were you thinking?”
