In a recent comment thread, the lovely leiascully composed some poignant snippets of slash concerning Marco the pharmacist and The Weird Night Janitor (who wears his pants backwards) leading me to the conclusion that what House MD fandom really needs is yet ANOTHER ficathon/fest/challenge what have you; devoted to minor characters, patients of the week, clinic patients and relatives/friends there-of.
I know what with the Foreman Fest, betteronvicodin and probably others going on, most of you have at least one writing commitment that's already causing you to freak out and froth at the mouth.
But there are so many great possibilities in the Clinic Patients alone, and the world desperately needs more Nurse Brenda fic. (Brenda/Debbie In Accounting femslash?) What happened to Gabe from "Cursed"? Sex In Her Sleep woman? Did Annica ever get help for her Munchausens? (Did she have a kid and start doing Munchausen's by proxy?) Will stalker!chick ever forget about House? How about Foreman's testimony at Death Row Guy's hearing? Speaking of hearings...how's the guy who shot House doing? Did Kalvin ever call up Chase to do some modeling? Did House ever take dwarf!mom for a spin? Are Robin and Wilson's brother shagging up a storm on the Island of Lost Plot Points?
I'm thinking that the rules would require all stories to include at least ONE recurring minor character or guest character (i.e. anyone other than House/Wilson/FCC/Cuddy/Stacy/Vogler/Trit
Does this idea titillate anyone's tush? Opinions as to whether you'd like to have prompts, exchange requests or everybody on their own. And just how swamped are you right now? In other words, when would be a reasonable time to do it? Late summer/fall or maybe not till next year after we've all done yuletide?
Talk to me folks. If I'm completely round the bend (always a possibility) let me know that too.
