The long-awaited sequel to A Modest Proposal has arrived.
If you're any kind of a House/Wilson fan and you've never read A Modest Proposal, you need to read it, like immediately. It's the Alpha and Omega of H/W getting together post Tritter angst and smut, with a whole lot of fluff and a "pure" happy ending. The fluff is too much for me now, but considering when it was written, it can be read as plausible and the smut is absolutely amazing. Seriously. This thing is a CLASSIC and there's a reason. Hell, it's worth it just for the snark and the characterization of Howard the lawyer. Yes, the word-count is daunting, but it's a fast read and so, so worth it.
AND NOW, our beloved Iggy is back with the sequel : Involuntary Commitment
This is basically the Season 3 that SHOULD have happened after Words & Deeds, instead of the truncated story-line we got, which essentially set House up for the deterioration of Season 5 and the far-less satisfying "recovery" plot we are currently being subjected to. The plot that still fails to deal with ANY of the issues established regarding House's addiction in the first 3 seasons.
This story deals with them, and gets House and Wilson to a Kgal-acceptable "happy" ending, but I'd say there's virtually no pure "fluff" and the angst---OH MY GOD....THE ANGST IS DELICIOUS. Pain and anger and betrayal, including a turn of my favorite H/W infarction fanon. There's also a slew of hot sex, some great characterizations, both of canon characters and some originals. (House's therapist here deserves her own series and leaves Dr. Nolan in the fucking dust when it comes to dealing with House.)
Do not be intimidated by the word-count. I promise, it's one of the fastest 42,000 word reads you will ever encounter. The link is HERE taking you to either Dreamwidth or AO3, but you can also comment back at good old LJ.
Seriously guys, if you love H/W in all their gloriously fucked up, angsty, HOT glory, you need to read this. (And leave comments.)
