A Fic Ficlet (1/3) Title: A Fic Ficlet Rating: PG Pairing: House/Wilson eventually Summary: House stumbles upon Wilson's fics and journal.
Wilson's laptop clicked and clacked as he typed. Oh, he was doing good now! Only 500 more words and he'd have the chapter finished. His office was the perfect place to write. He had a good view, coffee, and no House to bother him (yet).
He closed his laptop and put it in its case. Wilson looked at his watch, grabbed his lab coat and walked out the door.
House looked up as Wilson walked by his office. House noticed Wilson had been locked in his office all morning and it was time to go find out what he was up to. He climbed over the ledge between their balconies and slid the glass door open. Ah-ha! A laptop laid out on Wilson's desk.
House pulled the laptop out of its case and flipped the lid open. Word was opened up on the computer. A will maybe? Or a geeky way to write a grocery list ? House read the first few lines. It was about Buffy and Faith. Who they hell were they? Some secret girlfriends?
He read the next few paragraphs when the office door opened.
“House are you reading my Buffy fic?” asked Wilson who had his hands on his hips.
“If you wanted to read it you could have just asked.”
House grinned. “Can I read it?”
“Yes, just let me get some files out of my desk.” Wilson opened the file drawer and pulled out a file. “That's the un-betaed version, so ignore the mistakes.”
“Okay.” House turned back to the computer and Wilson left the office again.
What in the hell was Wilson writing? Time to do some web-surfing, House decided. He knew it was a story called a 'fic' and it was 'un-beated'. He typed 'Buffy' and 'fic' into Google.
“Buffy? Buffy the Vampire Slayer!? He's writing stories about her? What the fuck?” He clicked on the first link and found a whole archive for stories just like the one Wilson was writing. House then had to find out what a 'ship' was and found out that Wilson was writing 'lesbian fic' as House called it. He also found via bookmarks that Wilson had a account with nothing but his Buffy fanfiction and Stars Wars fic on a popular fanfiction site.
House also found Wilson's LiveJournal. He had hit the mother load! His stories were posted there along with entries about work and his relationships. A few people had commented and were sympathetic whenever Wilson had had a particularity hard day at work or they would post in horrible chat speak 'squeeing' for him whenever he had an achievement. House was scrolling down the page when he saw his name. He stopped and read:
“-I mean, House is a good-guy and all, but I just wish he was a little bit nicer, to me at least. How's a guy supposed to continue being his friend if he's overbearing all the time?”
House rolled his eyes and read the next line.
“-Someone has to be his friend, I guess. No one likes him, except Cam-”
Cam? Wilson was calling Cameron 'Cam'? This was just too funny.
“-and even she had a hard time trying to get to know him. She finally dropped the puzzle. Lisa-”
'He's even calling Cuddy by her first name!” House thought. He continued reading.
“-Lisa knew him in college and apparently they had a 'thing'. How can you have a 'thing' with someone and not be respectful to them? Only House can.”
House sighed. So this was Wilson's journal. Dry and boring as ever. No embarrassing pictures, no quizzes, no memes. Just real life boringness. But that was Wilson. Not much excitement, at least what House saw of him. And when there was excitement, it was a divorce or another lost girlfriend. But Wilson was writing about him, so that was interesting in it's own right.
He clicked out of Firefox and put the laptop back in its case. House used the office door this time, and left the office just as he had found it.
