The last available episode of House is done and watched. I hear this season is going to be shorter, so these might be the last episodes of season Four we’re seeing. If that is indeed the case, then we need to prepare for a long wait. While the time away by creating fanfic, shall we?
Here’s my newest idea for what would be neat to see on the show. House is a great doctor, right? And people tend to like being alive instead of dead, especially when that clashes with their previous expectations, right? And usually, grateful people want to somehow reward whomever has helped them, right? So there would be gifts and letters and flowers and things, right?
Now, we know House would never take any of that crap home. But some of it could be valuable. So Cuddy could make a cupboard-closet-room thing at the hospital to store it all. Like a House-shrine. Of course, she doesn’t like feeding his megalomania, but that’s neither here nor there. She would still be physically unable to throw away stuff that could profit the hospital.
Sometimes, when nobody’d be able to find House, he’d eventually be located sitting in his gift-room, looking at the weird things people would have chosen to send him, musing on the nature of humankind. ‘What kind of person gives a football to a cripple? Interesting,’ – all the while performing amazing juggling tricks with the ball using his cane and his healthy leg.
He could also read the letters at random, sometimes quoting relevant passages about his brilliance to get a point across to Cuddy who would groan and swear she’ll have the shrine disassembled that very minute, but then relent, maybe persuaded by Wilson who’d claim that this at least is a healthier way to indulge House than letting him experiment on his patients.
Or something, you know.
