House and the P.L.O.T. Device: Chapter 29 and Epilogue

He doesn’t get to have any breakfast the next morning, but when they leave for the hospital, Wilson packs along a container of pancakes and a little jar full of syrup. He packs his lion, rubber duck, and a bottle of Vicodin. He supposes that once he’s old again he won’t want Lion and Duck, but right now he does.

“We can come home to have breakfast,” House points out as they get into the car. “After.”

“They want you to stick around for a few hours, for observation,” Wilson reminds him.

House and the P.L.O.T. Device: 28

House's last PLOT-ified night.  

Apart from the grocery store trip, they spend most of the day quietly at home. House plays with his marble run and race car track, and then enlists Wilson in a gamed of Dinosaur Soccer, using a marble for the ball. Wilson plays the herbivores. He’s fairly sure that House’s favorite part of the game is the riot that ensues after the carnivore team wins.

The game seems to wear House out, and when Chase arrives for dinner, he’s laying on the rug coloring. “Here,” he says, handing Chase some paper and a crayon. “Draw dinosaurs.”

House and the P.L.O.T. Device 27

A/N:  This is quite a short update.  I'd wait until I have more written, but it's been simply ages since I last posted, and I'm sure there are people who are dying for a fix.  I hope to have another update ready for you tomorrow.

By the time Chase knocks on the door to Cameron’s apartment, it’s after ten. He hopes he isn’t keeping her from anything important.

She answers the door holding a string with Benedict’s Nylabone dangling from the end. She’s dressed in workout clothes--yoga pants and a short-sleeved top--but they don’t look like she’s worked out in them. The puppy cavorts at her side, nipping and pawing at his toy. “Hi, Chase,” she sighs. “Did you have a good time?”

House and the P.L.O.T. Device: 26/?

A/N:  So, a day late!  I ended up going to be early last night instead of writing.  And the old-school Potteric is on my laptop, which I don't want to even turn on right now because it's 95 degrees out and the laptop throws off a lot of heat.  But I'll post 'em soon!  In the meantime, here's the latest P.L.O.T. 

House is having trouble keeping Wilson in sight. The path is crowded, and he’s hurrying along like he’s late for something. He tries calling out to him, but he guesses Wilson doesn’t hear, because he doesn’t stop or even look around.

When House finally catches up to him, Wilson is talking to some lady with a kid. That’s just like Wilson, to be flirting with some stranger when House is looking for him. He must’ve ditched Chase, too.

House slugs him in the kidneys. “Thought you’d lose me that easily?” he demands.

House and the P.L.O.T. Device 25

A/N:  You guys almost didn't get this chapter today--when I was almost finished, my laptop decided to shut itself down.  (Hopefully a one-time occurence--if I have to send it in for repair again, when I've only had it back a month, I'm going to be pissed.)  And I'm terrible about saving my work as I go along, so I could have lost the whole chapter.  But, hooray for auto-save!  I ended up only losing a couple of sentences.

The House Quilt Project.  Everybody's doing it!


It was only with some effort, and frequent reminders that he wouldn’t have much fun at Six Flags if he was tired, that Wilson had gotten House to settle down and go to sleep after Chase left the night before their trip. He isn’t particularly surprised when House wakes him insanely early the next morning--if going to the park to feed the ducks warrants a seven AM wake-up call, naturally Six Flags calls for an even earlier one.

“They won’t even be open for another couple of hours,” Wilson reminds him, stumbling out of bed and stripping off the sheets. “If we left now we’d just have to wait.”

House and the P.L.O.T. Device: 24/?

House stays in the bathroom with his duck while Wilson calls the park people. It isn’t fair. He bets the duck will be happier being his pet than living in the park. Steve was a wild animal before, and he’s a perfectly good pet. And he could take Duck on walks to the park to visit the other ducks.

Now Duck is pecking at his reflection on the faucet, peering at it first with one beady little eye and then the other. House puts his fingers in the water at the opposite end of the tub, and Duck swims over to investigate.

House and the P.L.O.T. Device 23/?

P.L.O.T. is back!  Experimental procedure, blah blah blah, House is a wee tiny kiddie.  It's now Friday of the second week of House's transformation--he has the weekend left to go, and then he will be transforming back to normal.  In this chapter:  House and Wilson go to the park and feed the ducks.


“Ducks today,” House announces, poking him in the ribs.

Wilson rubs at his eyes. “What time is it?” It doesn’t really matter--now that he’s awake, he’s going to have to get up and change the bed.

“Seven,” House says proudly. “I let you sleep in.”

House and the P.L.O.T. Device: 22/?

A short P.L.O.T. update, for your reading enjoyment.

Fortunately, House seems to have forgotten that he’s angry with Wilson. Maybe it was his altercation with Foreman, or just the passage of time, but he’s restored to sunny good cheer.

While Wilson fixes up Foreman’s hand, House fills him in on everything he did with Chase. “We worked on the map--you’ll have to look at it. I put in a zoo. There are no elephants, though, so it would be safe for you to go there and look at the animals. Then we played hangman, and I won every time, except when Foreman cheated. Did you know that Chase isn’t good at hangman? Maybe it’s because they spell funny in Australia.”

House and the P.L.O.T Device 21/?

Wilson is making lunch for House--grilled cheese sandwiches and cream of tomato soup--when the phone rings.

“Hi, Doctor Wilson, I’m sorry to bother you at home.” It’s Dr. Gilbert, from his department.

“Who is it?” House asks.

“Work,” Wilson tells him. “Keep an eye on the sandwiches, okay?” He takes the phone into the other room. “It’s no trouble. What’s going on?” He’s surprised they’d made it this long without calling him at home--before now, he hadn’t been away from work for more than a few days at a time since becoming department head.

House and the P.L.O.T. Device: 20/ ? Revived!

 have finally started writing "House and the P.L.O.T. Device" again.  Funny with a little angst at the end. 

If you want to re-read the last two chapters, go here.
To start from the beginning, go here.

For a breif reminder of what has happened previously, read this paragraph.  House has gone though the Potent Localized Ontogenetic Transformation device, which returned him to a biological age of six, as an experimental treatment for his chronic leg pain.  He's had various adventures, mostly recently at the circus, where after an evening of fun, Wilson went into anaphylactic shock during an elephant ride.  He spent the night in the hospital and had a scratch test to determine that he is allergic to elephants.  

Gosh, when I write it out like that, it all seems so...silly.

Anyway, for the latest chapter, chapter 20,
