I fear House

There are worrying signs that my fondness for House may not be healthy. No, I've not succumbed to the obvious danger of hypochondria, and while I have developed a form of hypochondria-by-proxy I consider this an advantage. I hate hearing colleagues complaining about their physical ailments, but now I have a snappy comeback: "A sore throat and a twinge in your big toe, you say? I recently saw an episode of House where those very symptoms presaged swift and total organ failure." That shuts the fuckers up.

In fact, the true danger presented by House became clear to me while I was watching 30 Rock. Tracy was on a new mix of brain drugs and was suffering from tinnitus and hallucinations, and it suddenly reminded me of the start of a House episode when Something Goes Wrong with someone, then they wake up in hospital. In fact, I couldn't help but think that it would be pretty cool if this actually turned out to be a House cross-over episode. And then I started thinking about how this would improve most series.

Heroes would give House a whole new slew of genetic conditions to diagnose. I'd watch Friends if it was 'The One Where Ross Gets Boneitis, And Is Treated With Richly-Deserved Contempt By House'. Hell, I'd watch Sex In The Fucking City if I knew someone was going end up at House's mercy.

And that's when I realised: thoughts like this are surely the first symptom of becoming a fan-fic writer. I had never thought of myself as being that way inclined, but the slippery slope has suddenly become all too clear. I just hope I'm being a hypochondriac here...

(No offense meant, fic-ers.)

This is not just fanfic, this is cross-over!

oh honey... there's no stopping it now. You'll soon be writing fic where Chandler's strange illness is traced back to his dalliance with Tracy at the studio, with the hero of the story being Mr. Oxfard S'Lakkar...

Hehehehe... :-) And no, I'm not just giggling at the term "fic-ers" ;-p

Only if then House and Wilson have some hot gay gimpy sex in one of the supply closets at WherevertheHell Hospital.

House crosses over with everything, man. It's one of the Golden Crossover shows that you get now and then where you can come up with a legitimate hook for the crossover for any show that takes place in contemporary times (and I've even seen some that don't!)

I, of course, think that everyone should be a writer, so I encourage this :)

I'm guessing that the only series better suited are things like Quantum Leap and Doctor Who, where even space-time need not constrain you.

Oh god. Am I a natural?
