So, before I gave my heart to Prince of Tennis, I gave it to House, M.D. Sometime last February I read Maryland
and was halfway in love with the show before I ever saw it. I remember making an lj post going, god help me, I have a new fandom, within a matter of weeks.
I fell out of touch with the fandom due to the PoT headrush over the summer, but god
I love House. I've had a House/Wilson fic in the works since October, so
close to being done. I missed the most recent 3 eps and have been catching up on them tonight, and discovering to my gratification that my fic plot has been totally trumped by 2x17. If that's the case I'll just leave out all the nasty medical bits that I didn't know how to write anyway. My plot being used as a canon plot makes me feel perceptive, which is kinda nice, even though it's a complete cliche.
Anyway, I abandoned all my house/wilson icons in favor of tezuka/ryoma love, but I don't think I can stress enough what an amazing pairing House/Wilson is. I mean. Seriously. No non-explicit canon ship of any recent series has been more adamantly
built up by that canon than Tezuka/Ryoma, but if you had to argue for another ship to outslash all comers, I think the clear choice would be House/Wilson. The subtext is intentional, but even without that House/Wilson would continue to be this endlessly intriguing creature. The depth of their relationship is so fascinating and so satisfying, and Robert Sean Leonard is just so incredibly elusive and full of paradox as Wilson. I never get tired of watching him when he's around Hugh Laurie. They have this amazing chemistry and also a deep awareness, I think, as actors, that there is something more to House and Wilson's relationship than they've ever yet touched on as friends.
Whatever that something is, I have a feeling it's going to boil over by the end of this season. Someone on my flist joked about them making out in the season finale; I think more seriously Wilson is going to seriously lose his shit at House. For the second half of this season he's been growing increasingly alarmed and frustrated and, I think, angry at himself for the things he puts up with House, and yet he keeps doing it with a simultaneous grace and chagrin that only RSL can really pull off this beautifully. God. I love him. I love this character and I love the House/Wilson dynamic so much.
I was going to say something about cars here. But I think I'll leave that for another time to bask in the glow of my House/Wilson love.
And, just because I can, and because I haven't written anything at all in way too long, here's a cookie.( Collapse )
