Oh friends who watch both House and Merlin, where is the crossover fic inspired by the awesomeness of HL wearing a green doublet?



I mean, seriously, where's the fic about Merlin magicking House back to Camelot to save Arthur, who's dying of a mysterious disease? House, of course, makes brilliant use of the rudimentary medical and diagnostic tools at his disposal (kinda like that time Mira Sorvino was at the South Pole, except medieval). C'mon, he's already revealed his mad skillz identifying the uses and abuses of wild plants.

Where's the fic about House and Gaius making quizzical faces at each other? Or the epic Thirteen/Morgana femslash?

Or, the AU fic where a couple of college kids have decided to live as Arthur and Merlin, two sides of the same coin, until a mysterious ailment forces them to re-examine both their values and their love for one another.

Also: I really need an icon of House in that hat. found!

  • You. You alone have to write it. You know that, don't you? :)
    • Hee! I do like transporting people back to Camelot, don't I?

      But my problem with writing House!fic is that I'm no good with the medical mystery thing...Love reading them, but can't think up zany new uses for x and y. If someone were to come up with a disease for me, though, I'd run with it ;)

        I think that's why there aren't many long House stories. They're very hard to write convincingly. The New Yorker has a cool medical mystery column that has interesting case files that would make for good stories.

        I can't imagine writing House again, but it was a good exercise for me. House is a very hard character to write.

          *nods vigorously* Do you mean the column in the NYT? Or does the New Yorker have one too? Will have to start reading that again!

          For this particular scenario, I guess one wouldn't need a particularly mysterious disease--just one unknown in the Middle Ages. It's the rejiggering of medieval instruments to do modern tests that would be challenging.

          Tempting to give Arthur Addison's disease because of JFK and his Camelot--but I think it was untreatable before the 20thC.

          And yes--writing House POV seems even scarier than writing Holmes POV--I admire you so much for doing it well!
  • Hahaha! I love it! I dub thee the writer of this piece! :-)
  • No, NO NO! Do not tempt me, for 'tis out of my powers. Besides, I still have to write my Merlin/SPN ficlet and send it to you along with the House one: me hands are full. However, if you would consider writing it, I offer my beta services right here and now *kneels and offers beta services* M'lady.

    ps. I'm curious: do you have any idea if ren fairs are usually that well organized/detailed?
    • Bwahaha! I thought you might find it tempting! I will put it in the hutch with the other bunnies, and you can come adopt it when you get a chance :)

      My problem with writing it, aside from the time issue, is, as I said above, trying to come up with interesting, plausible, medical issues and treatments...I do have a couple of other House fics in the pipeline, though, for which I would very gladly call upon your beta services--thank you!

      My hands are full too--Am trying to bang out a Holmes/Watson fic for an exchange--which is probably why I keep thinking of other things to write, lol.

      Looking forward to the Merlin/SPN fic!
      • Oh, I'll be glad to beta any House fic you want *makes googly eyes*

        ... you have Holmes/Watson in the pipeline and you're not writing it??? Go, shoo!
