Summary: Third fic in the Kelpie AU, sequel to The Cuckoo. Wilson may have survived his bout with cancer by way of half a liver from Cuddy and House's medical genius, but he knows there's a good chance his reprieve won't last forever, so he is determined to make proper arrangements for his son's future. He doesn't count on House's unexpected interest in the proceedings.
Characters: House, Cuddy, Wilson, Rachel Cuddy, Joel Wilson, Nolan, OCs.
Pairings: House/Cuddy
Disclaimer: The characters, other than the OCs, belong to Fox TV, David Shore, or whoever.
Beta: The indefatigable [ profile] menolly_au.
Warning: If you haven’t read The Kelpie and The Cuckoo, this fic will be incomprehensible! For those of you who have read The Kelpie, but can’t recall any details, I’ve posted a short summary here. A short summary of The Cuckoo is here. (If you haven't read them, even the summaries will be incomprehensible -- trust me on this!)
Further Warning:
The good news: I've completed the entire fic; it just needs to be beta'ed and revised. So, it'll definitely all get posted, probably at the rate of one chapter per week.
The bad news: There's no sense in giving me advice on how I should be writing it or in complaining about where it's going. Now that I've finally completed it I'm not going to change anything of relevance. This fic will end with the pairing House/Cuddy. If you are a fan of that pairing, don't despair: we'll get there sooner or later. If you hate that pairing, don't despair either. I'll tell you where to stop reading so that the fic is open-ended.
This fic is dedicated to the marvellous Menolly, who consented to beta over 100 k with such alacrity and enthusiasm that one would have thought I was doing her a favour, not vice versa. Without her, I probably wouldn't have completed it.
