    Wilson is the perfect time traveler, House will be fascinated by his anecdotes and recollection of bygone days. This should fascinate him, it already fascinates the Captain. I am surprised House hadn't had an inkling of this before now.

    Wilson needs a job, the captain doesn't like his current physician, I sense a mutual need.

    By the way, I love this universe
    • *grins*

      All we've actually said is that it's a really old little ship -- even Wilson has had plenty of thoughts about that, earlier in the story. What was it he said? That it was "an elegant old junkheap"?
  • I am loving this story!! (I love everything your consortium does!) It is moving along at a nice pace (of course I would love multiple chapters a day but I do understand..really I do). You all have a great way with the original characters, I can almost see them the same way I can see House and Wilson! WTG!!!
    • We've been working overtime on this, lately, and we've got more coming up quite soon, so do stay tuned.

      We'd written a lot of this stuff long time ago, but as the ficverse has grown and become more complex, we're pretty much re-writing this whole segment as we go.
  • yay! a new update so soon!

    It's so amusing that the official language of the past was French. ;)

    The captain seems a much nicer guy than what I expected. I just wonder exactly how much Wilson told him... mmm.

    Also, I'm betting Wilson is starting to suffer from withdrawal... I hope they will put them together soon.
  • I love the small details that ground this in "our" reality: the language of diplomacy is still French, data analysis of flight recorders isn't fast, chess exists, and Wilson discovers the hard way that it's nothing like the movies when the hero gets knocked down. :)

    Jerome is a fascinating character, as much a politician as a leader in the many levels of his thinking. Can't wait to see more!
  • I love this chapter. The first meeting between Wilson and Capt. Jerome. The way House sort of floats around on the edges of everyone's thoughts and words. I absolutely loved the description of the Captain as he settles down for the evening. Great imagery throughout. Iit's like I'm a fly on the ship, always where the action is. Can't wait for the next chapter. Will we be getting a chapter a day - pleases!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    • I think you'll see more tomorrow (Wednesday), Idon, so do try to hang in there.

      We're writing at a furious pace, but wow, there's so much to contend with in this ficverse. We love it, but it does get exhausting!

    Just two words...
    HOTEL CALIFORNIA???
  • So the sabatoge plot bobs back up to the surface? Good!

    There is so much here to applaud. Especially love, "Guess getting stun-blasted isn't anything like on the drama-vids, where the hero jumps up and keeps fighting." Some things never change. Nice assault on action films. :)

  • I don't usually comment. As House'd say, it's just old fashioned laziness, mixed with a lack of a lavishing instinct. But you are just AMAZING. I'm pretty demanding about the stuff I read, and I humbly have to admit that you got me totally hooked. Keep it up and keep it coming.

    BTW, Hotel California?? The Eagles? Seriously? Really nice touch.
    • Hotel California??

      Well ... yes. Seriously. Although when we realized that was the name of the ship, we burst out laughing so hard.
  • That Wilson and his shipmates were sacrificed as a gambit in a political game, regardless that Wilson survived that play, is very chilling indeed.

    Nice structure and plot development. You have set me to speculating whether Jerome and his crew will become entangled in political shenanigans they'd rather avoid. Very intriguing.
  • So now we have confirmation that all were supposed to die and who ever did the deed leaked the details of their death unless the Attaché was the one who did it. Is Wilson suffering from the blast or is he all ready suffering from House withdrawl? I know I am. Get back to my cranky doc so he can snack on Wilson! More please.
    • Oh, we've got the next ... let's see ... the next three chapters pretty well drafted out at this point.

      *grins*

      See you soon!
  • Trying to type with an 8-week old kitten constantly attempting to climb up on my lap, so this'll be short. Really liking Jerome so far. Reminds me of a Star Trek fic where Kirk, just recently given command of the Enterprise, goes against his first mate's warnings and invites the "frigid" Commander Spock to play chess. Hope it goes well.

    Poor Wilson. Withdrawal's a bitch, ain't it? :)

    Interesting that the sabotage was politically motivated. Wilson better be careful - once word gets out that he's alive, he'll be in a lot of danger.
  • Oh it so fits that House and Wilson would be stuck on a ship called Hotel California.

    Stab it with their steely knives but they just can't kill the beast
  • Great update, love the bit about the Hotel California. Chess with House should be interesting.
  • Well, you know what I am going to be singing all night:

    Last thing I remember, I was
    Running for the door
    I had to find the passage back
    To the place I was before
    ’relax,’ said the night man,
    We are programmed to receive.
    You can checkout any time you like,
    But you can never leave!


    *cackles*
  • a) broke out laughing at the ship's name.
    b) loved this chapter
    c) house + chess + jerome = interesting
    d) loved this chapter again.
  • Okay, this is fantastic!!! Sorry, I've recently started stalking (or is it lurking? I can't remember what people say...) this story, but I haven't commented yet!!!! I was going to wait until I caught up, but then I saw the name of the ship. Fantastic! I laughed, and it made me think about how much it fit. Thanks so much for an awesome story.
    • Why, thank you! It makes us so happy to hear from readers; otherwise we never know if anyone's out there or not.

      You'll want to keep reading. We've just finished the second part of this ficverse, and there will be more to come. Out of curiosity, how did you find this?

      • Ooo, excitement :) And I think I found this on a House/Wilson group... "Grabbing his Cane". I'm not a really active Live Journal-er, so I'm still figuring things out. I was clicking on pretty much anything and this came up :D Glad I found it.
  • Hah! I forgot this part. "Not only is this tragic incident an affront to all peace-loving peoples of the quadrant, but it constitutes a Level 1 contract breach, cementing Delphan support for the long-proposed hostile takeover of Capinari."

    Perfect, their deaths were political. Isn't that just like mankind. :(
  • Hotel California...Lewis Carroll in the title...this is not a fanfic, this is a dream come true. :-)
