Bravo, love the way you portrayed Wilson and his uncanny ability to prove exactly who really is the ASS in this friendship. I also really enjoyed the Chase friendship. I always thought that Chase would be a good friend for House...definitely less toxic and manipulative than Wilson. If Wilson was my best friend always lying to me or manipulating me or conspiring against me or trying to change me into someone more "inner circle" (especially when it is completely obvious that I am NOT an inner circle kind of person) I would kill him. Not to mention I have always thought that House was a better friend to wilson than vise-versa. I love how House always accepts people for who they really are...as long as they accept themselves. (in cases where they do not acknowledge what there true selves are he is "Kind" enough to show them a mirror) This is the whole ASS, BUT HONEST ASS comes into play. Very well done.

Lovely story, great job!
I loved every bit of it, but my favourite is House going to Cuddy for prescriptions. Having Wilson writing prescriptions was never a good idea, personally AND professionally.
I'm not a native speaker, far from it, but I'll try to explain. 'To put someone on retainer' means, that person is somehow 'booked' for an amount of time. Like a part-time-job with an official contract. Mostly common for lawyers of a single, but business-person. No matter if you need them or not, they have a guaranteed amount of hours paid, they can only earn more than the contract sum if they have a lot to do, but never less.

I love this story.
Seriously well written.
| Militant Delusionalist 12/1/08 . chapter 14
That was GREAT! I cried and laughed. The last chapter was a nice ending from all the angst. I love how you wrote House. I could totally have seen that happen. He's not as caustic as everyone seems to think he is. Once again GREAT story! *favs*

Aw, very cute! I thought the House-Kutner exchange was fabulous, and I laughed when he made that comment about Taub being able to see what he was writing, hee! Especially next to House, Taub is a shrimp. Also liked House accepting Chase's offer over for Christmas. It was nice, getting these snippets from the following year: a good way to sum up what follows in the same style as the rest of the story. Nice touches here and there, like going back to Vicodin and House taking Wilson on a road trip... really shows, in not too lengthy an epilogue, how things are improving. Very nicely done! I really enjoyed this fic.
Hold on... you're not a native English speaker? What's your first language? It's an amazing compliment to you, then, that I had NO IDEA that English wasn't your first language. As for putting someone on retainer, I believe this just means having someone who usually does freelance work at your disposal. For example, with the PI, House wanted him to be available all the time, so he would pay the PI a fixed rate for always being available to him rather than only paying for the jobs the PI does. I don't know if that makes any sense (or is completley correct) but that's my understanding of it.

I loved this - a perfect end to a perfect fic! :D
I'm sorry I haven't been able to review lately - life's been horribly hectic these last few weeks - but today I sat down and read all the chapters I was missing, and, well, cried and beamed quite a bit. :)
I love how things came almost full circle in this fic - 'almost' because by the end of the year things had truly improved. House now has people who recognise his needs - even when they had previously dismissed them - and how House, through both desperation (and a little, growing, bit of trust), now seeks for actual medical help. :D
I just utterly loved it!
As I said - a *perfect* note for this fic to end.
I can't wait 'til your next fic. :)

Wonderful fic! I absolutely loved it! I thought it was completely realistic, the way time flowed, and I'm glad it finally worked out.
As to your note at the end..."to put someone on retainer" has to do with hiring someone, usually a professional advisor (it's not a phrase I use or encounter often, so I apologize if my explaination rambles a bit). For instance, if someone brings a lawsuit against you (or you file one against someone else), you're very likely going to hire a lawyer until the situation is resolved, regardless of how long that takes. Of course, you could always fire your lawyer and hire another one. You would then say that you have put the lawyer on retainer. Oh! Here's a great example from Season 5: House has hired a Private Investigator to look into things. House has him on retainer, and he has to pay him if he wants him to keep looking into things, regardless of the quality of his findings.
Hope my explaination has cleared things up a bit! Thanks for the great story!

on retainer: having them at your disposal for a set fee. We do it with lawyers mostly.
This was great. Hope you do another multichapter. You are really good,
