30 Days of House MD Meme

Meme of Doom ganked from cuddyclothes and chocolate_frapp.

Here are the questions

Day 17 - Your favorite relationship (any type)


That's what immediately caught my eye. That's what took me to LJ. That's what got me writing fanfic again.

Specifically 1st and 2nd season House/Wilson, with canon cheating Wilson and canon obsessed House, but 90% subtext, and totally based in the Hugh/Bobby chemistry WITHOUT deliberate fanservice from too-knowing writers. Everything post-that is on a sliding scale of awesome vs too much.

For example-compare the subtlety of House's hurt over Wilson's "betrayal" in Sports Medicine to the TOO MUCH and TOO BLATANT of "Oh my god. You're sleeping with me." in Don't Ever Change. That's the difference between subtext and fanservice.

I still believe they love each other and have had sex, but I also think as I have said so many times, that they will ALWAYS, that's A-L-W-A-Y-S end up hurting each other. NO SCHMOOP. NO FLUFF. NO HOPE.

I also think the too-knowing writers shot themselves in the foot and have spent the last two seasons very deliberately trying to back away from everything they did before, AND trying to neuter Wilson's sexuality in the process. That's the only reason I can think of for trying to convince me that Taub is a successful philanderer.
