Hi! Haven't read House fic in ages (probably two years) and have a sudden urge. Figured this would make my job easier. :D
House/Wilson recs would obviously be welcomed but I would also take gen stories dealing with their friendship. You can rec me any of your favorites (since I haven't read fic in so long, I know I've missed a lot), but I'd specifically like to know if there are any fics out there that deal with House and Wilson's first meeting as described in 'Birthmarks'.
"This guy was a total stranger to you and you bailed him out?"
House: "It was a boring convention. Had to have somebody to drink with."
Wilson: "And that's the foundation of our entire friendship: if you hadn't been bored one weekend, it wouldn't even exist."
House: "Hey, there were three thousand people at that convention, and you're the one I thought wasn't boring; that says something."
Would love to see fics of that encounter and how their relationship developed afterward. Preferably long and plotty, maybe even spanning several years (I'm imagining a multi-chaptered story where every chapter covers a year; seeing them go from House and Wilson to House&Wilson). First time fics are great, but I would once again prefer if they didn't get it on at first sight -- if they developed a friendship first. (And if there isn't a fic like this...maybe someone would want to write it? >.> It wouldn't HAVE to be multi-chaptered, that's asking for too much, but. Man, anything even remotely like that -- even short snippets covering a few years after their first meeting -- would be epic.)
Also, this would be even more recent, but if there are any fics that mention the earlier House&Wilson days when House first told Wilson about the job at Princeton Plainsboro that would be great.
That moment was from 'The Social Contract', btw.
House (referring to Wilson's brother): "That's why you were so eager when I told you there was a job at Princeton. I thought it was my charm."
Any AU stories about House and Wilson's first meeting would be welcome as well, but I'd be extra pleased if there are any decent stories that deal with the shows canon on this subject. It hasn't been ALL that long since then, but I still hope someone stepped up to the plate and wrote it. Thanks!
