I didn't think this would ever happen again, but... *sigh* I have a confession. I spent the weekend, in large part, watching the first season of House MD on DVD. Also the first four eps of Season 2. That isn't the confession. I'm confessing complete and total addiction to a TV show that isn't Farscape. I have to face it: the writing is great, the acting is great (Hugh Laurie's eyes have a role all their own), I'm a sucker for bizarre illnesses and their treatment, and I'm also a sucker for brilliant and damaged men. *puts House in a drawer with Erik, Severus, Jekyll, Jarod...*

As for the rest of the characters, Foreman is cool, I can identify with Cameron, Cuddy rocks, and Chase is okay when he isn't being a twit. His accent does nothing for him, sadly. Stacy (or is it Tracy?) has managed not to piss me off so far, which is worth points. Oh, and Wilson! Listed last, but certainly not least. I admire him like I admire the Persian, or John Utterson, or Sydney (whose actor guest-starred as Chase's dad, which is frickin' sweet).

NOTE: I found out by accident what happens at the end of Season 2. It doesn't surprise me, but if anyone spoils me more I'll be upset. *pout*

Now, I wouldn't be posting this without a good reason. I'm wondering if anyone else who watches House also reads Robin Cook novels. I'm wondering because I would dearly love to see a crossover in which House meets Jack Stapleton. The two are similar figures, only Stapleton has a better grip on his personal life (read: he has one). I figure they'd either hate each other or become drinking buddies. Thing is, I'm fascinated by illness and medicine, and I know how the story would have to work, but the details make me balk--otherwise I'd write it myself. So, if anyone knows of such a story, or is interested in the complete plotbunny, do please let me know. I would be most grateful. {= )

From: [identity profile] have a livejournal! And you like House!

Two revelations in five minutes. Astounding.

Now, to discover another revelation - What do you think of a House/PotC crossover? And has Blayze already spoken to you of this?

To keep on topic - sadly, I have not read any Robin Cook novels. At least, not that I can remember.

Yes and yes. {= )

Blayze has spoken to me of playing House (pun not my fault), which I have agreed to do provided no one expects profound metaphors or accurate "doctor" jargon at the drop of a hat. Snark I can do, and the angst is built in. All I have to do is say *does that soulful eye thing* and everyone will know exactly what's going on because Hugh Laurie is a genius. {= )

I've also put a toe onto the dark side of the fandom, because, one, I want a House 'ship, and two, the only reasonable pairing I can see is House/Wilson. ^_^;

You should at least read the Cook novels featuring Jack Stapleton, because he's fun. Titles in order of publication are "Contagion," "Chromosome 6," "Vector," and "Marker." You might want to include "Blindsight" first because Laurie Montgomery is in it, and she's a major player in the others. I also recommend "Acceptable Risk" because it's a Jekyll and Hyde sort of motif.

I'm done now. ^_^;

Awesome! We have a House! And Hugh Laurie is most certainly a genius.

Bwahahahaha. Once you join the Dark Side, you can never go back. That's okay, though. We have t-shirts. Or will. Eventually. We also have amazing crack fic, and no one can say no to crack fic. ^_^
Also, I think I'm probably the one who grabbed Wilson? I think? I'm not completely sure, only mostly. So yes. I too am a supporter of the ship that is House/Wilson. So yay! Or something.

Hm... I'll maybe check it out. Sometime. >.> My book-getting abilities are limited at the moment, sadly.

And if any of that's incoherent, I'll blame it on the fact I just woke up an hour ago.
