OK, so now that the season has ended with House and Cuddy set to make a go of it–and since I’m busily wrapping up Chasing Zebras for publication and have little time the next few days to work on much other writing, I thought I’d take a trip down memory lane and provide links to all my House-Cuddy fan fiction.
I’ve been writing the House-Cuddy relationship since the latter half of season two. Some of the stories are quite long and others are little bitsy pieces. While most are complete, a few are WIPs. So, sit back, relax–and I hope you enjoy them!
Disclaimer: none of the House characters of mine, they are simply lovingly borrowed from TPTB.
NOTE: The stories are listed most recent first. So if you want read in order start at the bottom. Enjoy and let me know whatcha think!
