Reviews for Not With a Bang, but With a Whimper
HouseAddict chapter 14 . 4/2/2007
I love the dynamic House and Wilson have in this chapter...

And still being obsessed about the case is so intrinsically House it took my breath away. Once again, I can do nothing but sing your praises and read on.


HouseAddict chapter 11 . 4/2/2007
O good God...

This is so harsh...

So starkly honest...

So House, if he had ever made a mistake.


HouseAddict chapter 10 . 4/1/2007
Its late and I should sleep... but this story has me all choked up... I don't want to stop. Its heartwrenching and genuine and sad. Its a real riches to rags story. And things seem to be getting worse before they get better. If they get better.


HouseAddict chapter 8 . 4/1/2007
Crying has stopped... shocked disbelief at how crude prison life is has taken over... and an overwhelming sense of pity which House would no doubt despise.

Have to read more before I give in to the urge to quote Evanescence...


HouseAddict chapter 7 . 4/1/2007
You got me with Stacy, dammit... I never even liked her character that much. The bit about him being a good man... crying like a baby now. So good. Just so good...

HouseAddict chapter 6 . 4/1/2007
Wow... I think I may actually cry. His pain is so real... And Wilson, poor bastard... riding it all out.

I LOVE that you included House's father. LOVE it. Excellently done, perfectly placed, dead on character.

Really amazing.


HouseAddict chapter 4 . 4/1/2007
I'm starting to get a better handle on both the time frame and the pronoun usage... its like one of House's own puzzles... who's POV this time?

I love the line about only Princeton having polite donuts. His character is so natural...

very impressive.


HouseAddict chapter 3 . 4/1/2007
You're probably getting tired of my reviews by now, but I really loved this one. A bit foggy on the time period still, but House's bitterness shines through like a lighthouse on a moody sea.


HouseAddict chapter 2 . 4/1/2007
I love your style, very frank and right on target.

But the lack of names... only pronouns... I'm not sure if its intentional, but I have trouble telling who's who...

I can only assume this is House...

Poor guy... he's a wreck.


HouseAddict chapter 1 . 4/1/2007
Wow. I'm not sure if this is Stacy or Cameron, or Cuddy, for that matter... could be some other character entirely. I'm also a little confused about the time frame... are we post-infarction, here, meaning RIGHT after, or are we somewhere in the future after he's stopped working at PPTH... Not sure.

The red mug without a handle makes me think he's not at PPTH...


Stunningly written, though... and paradoxically, it ends with a bang.

Cheers, can't wait to read the rest.

T'eyla chapter 16 . 3/2/2007
Seems a little unfair to leave only one review for all the 16 chapters, but I didn't want to stop reading between chapters.

I really like your style; the whole jumping back and forth in time worked for me. Even though it had me frown in confusion once or twice ;). Good job on the House characterization, you put him through new situations and still kept him in character (there are so many fics where he's not himself even in standard situations, so really *thumbs up*). And I loved Wilson in this one. I admit, I love Wilson in every fic I read, but I especially loved him in this one. Stubborn pain in the ass that he is. Lord of the Tupperware. Yay. ;)

The DVD extras were a nice surprise. Funny. Reminded me a little of Leonard Nimoy's biography...

Thanks for the great read! *off to skim your profile page some more*
Serena chapter 2 . 2/17/2007
WTF..? House? Crying? CHEESE?

This is kinda weird... but it's written really well so I'll keep reading...
an-angel-in-hell chapter 16 . 2/8/2007
Gah. I'm both ticked that my writing is horribly, horribly sucky compared to yours and overjoyed that I've found a fic this good. Hmm.

Seriously though, this was AMAZING! It was like, Shawshank Redemption meets House. The title brillance. And the extras were hillarious.
babaoreily chapter 16 . 1/21/2007
Hi, this is baba_o_reily. I came here from lj. Anyway, this was so heartbreakingly good that it made me physically hurt...which is a good thing because if literature doesn't make you feel anything, then it's pointless. I also liked how there was a glimmer of hope at the end. However, I'm told I have a very keen sense of justice, so, to find out at the end that the tick was in fact there made me want to jump through my screen and throttle the mortician (also a good thing - see above). All in all though I loved this.
EsScaper chapter 16 . 1/14/2007
What an excellent story! You had me so captivated that I read it all in one sitting. Your characters were totally believable. Your details gave me such vivid imagery. Then of course your angst was perfect! By far the best part was that there actually was a tick, but some angry doctor decided to get his revenge...oh the irony!

You wrote a classic, and I will definitely add it to my favs. By the way your ending it off with the interviews and deleted scenes was wonderful. You are extemely talented and quite original.

Thanks for the opportunity to read such a great piece.
