I find it amazing that you posted Stumble in 2005, barely into the second season. How you figured out all this beautiful and true stuff about House's love for Wilson and Wilson's love for House just astounds me! At the time, I watched the series and missed all of that. I only thought House just enjoyed stealing Wilson's food. Your writing is gorgeous! I'd love it if you'd write something more, taking into account things that happened later on in the series. Thanks in advance...
By the way, I've now reread all of Stumble at least a dozen times and chapter 10 more than 20! Can't get enough!

Loved this! Fabulous story overall. I would have liked it if one of them had initiated a kiss near the end-a deep, loving. . . passionate kiss that surprised and delighted the other. No slash, at least not in their physical conditions. In any case, this chapter blew me away. Thank you for posting it. Now, I'm off to look up your other stories.

Well... That was a wild ride. Loved some moments more than others and though it got really sickly sweet and pretty slashy at times, I liked the story overall. It's interesting how different authors write an attempted suicide by House. Liked the memories. Nice fic overall.

I may have read this years ago, but I'm reading again now. And if I didn't say it then...you write like a poet. Love it.

God, this is brilliant. House and Wilson and all the angst and the hurt/comfort - excruciating. I've always adored the House/Wilson dynamic, and your fic's just made me realize why exactly I love them so much. I'm not even pouting at the fact that you decided not to make this slash; it was that good. ;)
I have to add by the way, that you writing style is wonderful. Your descriptions are vivid, striking. The way you depicted House and Wilson (ie. playing havoc with their hearts, and us readers) was just - gah. And my god, the anguish.
i get the feeling I'm starting to repeat myself now, so I'll stop here. I'm a little disappointed you didn't write a sequel after all, but because I know how sometimes stories are best left as they are, I'm not complaining. Thanks for the masterpiece.

Great chapter. The scene in the chapel and at the end was powerful. Good work.

I commented in the first chapter, reread it, and I'm gonna comment again hope it doesn't bother you too much. I have much to say and not much time to write it, but I'll make time. One, I don't think the story is slash-although it could be read that way, and I think that makes you a good author doubly because you have both sides of House/Wilson fans reading whether it's for slash or strong friendship. I don't think you ever mentioned trying to keep the characters IN character, so I'd say whatever to those who made it a big deal. But I think they ARE very much in character, House included. When you have that one friend who's seen you through your worst, been there when you had nothing left, and STILL sticks around despite the bullshit you put them through, it changes you. I am an example because I am very much like house-very complicated with a complicated life/past. I don't push-I SHOVE people away. Hell, I pretty much have barriers, lights, signs that say "stay away emotionally closed off crazy person here!" I like house-EXPECT the ones close to me to leave, but secretly beg them not to, pray they don't. My best friend is just like Wilson, calling me on my bullshit,seeing through my lies, and knowing when I'm falling apart even though there's a smile on my face...I thank god for her everyday, but wouldn't tell her that of course lol. I don't ever voice an "I love you" or the "I care", I don't hug *yuck* I just stand in the corner hiding with my arms crossed. But I KNOW for a fact that if my best friend ever got into what Wilson got into, I'd be just like House. saying the "I love you's" like it's the only English sentence I know how to speak. Signs lights barriers and no hugs be damned I'd be right up in that hospital bed hugging her telling her she'd better not scare me again because if she died I don't know what I'd do. Some people might not understand that but it's like one reviewer said: This is the kind of once-in-a-Millenium-of-lifetimes love that everybody wants, less people get, and the lucky few keep." It IS possible to have that deep of a connection with somebody and not be romantically involved. You prove it. If anyone ever tells you otherwise I hope you remember that I'm proof. My favorite lines:
"Wilson hiccuped into the climax of his flood, and House half-laughed because it was cute."
“James, said House, heart pounding into Wilson’s, kicking the monitor’s ass."
this was a paragraph so I had to shorten it...
"...defending him when everyone else turned their backs, losing his job for him and still doing him a favor afterward, teasing him and falling asleep on his couch, praying for him, pretending to be happy for him. Wilson. Wilson."
That made me breathless because I would bet my life that you could substitute House with my name and Wilson's with my best friends and this story could easily be my friendship, MY realization. I would add the flaming star part but everyone took it lol.
“You have to know how much I love you – how much I’ve always loved you...” something I would say, because as mentioned I don't say the "love you" line, and would say it like you wrote it because it's not like House and Wilson would stay sappy like that forever, I got the idea he said it because he knew that once Wilson recovered and all that he'd (House) still be the emotionally shut off ass but wanted Wilson to know like "hey, no matter what I do, or what we go through, I love you. Please don't forget that. I NEED you to remember that always."
"He sighed, shut his eyes. Fuck it. He would live." Priceless line. I forgo explaining that because you're probably reading this going "wtf? how long IS this review?" I think I'm done all in all you are going down in history for this story. When the show is over years down the road, I'll still be reading this. If you consider this story as your baby, you've delivered a perfectly healthy one. Congratulations, I look forward to reading more of your stories. And if in the event you write a sequel, I wouldn't read it because I'd probably die of a heart attack over you writing a sequel. Kudos, I tip my hat off to you, good work and good luck.
