House: Six Little Words fiction  
Six-words stories for "House, M.D."
===================================

“Get off my desk!”
“Tough titty.”


Friend or habit? Ignorance is bliss.

Always nice, but still they leave.

Crutch, weapon, reminder… it’s what’s left.

Jazz can’t cure a hollow heart.

Gratitude doesn’t matter. New puzzled needed.

Compassionate power can save lives too.

Smart. Successful. But pasts never die.

Wit is attractive. Hatred is not.

Cheerfully aloof, the cruelty still stings.

Quiet bullies are harder to spot.

Almost dead. Barely saved.
Rarely whole.

Cells speak through microscopes. Listen closely…

“Am I dying?”
“No.” Not yet.

Tough titty sounds... really dirty :D

Oh, love the one about the quiet bully.

:D It's always sounded dirty to me, but it's definitely a House type-of-phrase.

You must be current on this season, then. Never thought that actor had it in him to pull off that kind of hidden menace. :)

I love that scene where House jokingly compares Tritter to a bully and then tells the Ducklings that if they don't do what House says he'll steal their lunchmoney (or whatever he said exactly).

Tritter is creepy. On one hand he annoys me. Because he is just so unrealistic and just so obviously a plot device (actually, pretty much exactly like Stacey and Vogler) meant to provoke a certain reaction from the characters. On the other hand, well, he gets interesting reaction out of the characters, I almost forgive him for being such a cartoon. Besides, just how much messier would the storyline be if Tritter wasn't an obviously disturbing cartoon but a real character instead?

Grin, already told alazysod, that the first time he showed up I (unspoiled that he would play a bigger part) thought his big surprise twist would be that he is a S&M master, from the way he seemed so uberproper and from the way he seemed to be leering at House. Kinda like the Lady Heather to House's Grissom who suggests a whipping session might make House a less cranky person :D

LOL, as you can see I was quite off about that :D

I dislike this in shows in general. "E.R." used to have the antagonistic of the season-- someone to hate every year. Used to be the Turtle-headed older doctor. Then Romano. Then Carrie. (or maybe a different order). Annoying, and it always cause me stress (I'm such a creampuff).

:D I didn't think that, but BOY did I think he had some kind of sexual fixation on House. He so clearly wanted House to look at his penis, and he seemed almost glad when House put that rectal thermomometer in (as in, "Yummy! He's paying attention to my parts!"). I still think there's a little bit of the "lover spurned" about him. Remember when he was frisking House after pulling him over on the motorcycle? House's shirt lifted up to show some tummy, and I thought "Rrowr! Naughty policeman!" before I could help myself. :0

Ha-ha! I didn't think of it quite that way, but that IS the outline of the show:

Sick... sicker... wait, let's see if we can put you on the verge of DEATH! That'll lead us to the cure. Or, you know-- not. ;)

Thanks for reading. :)

Gah, I love how you can say so much with so little. This is great, and so are the PB ones.

:D Thank you, Gena! You should see the "Classics" ones, if you haven't already.

Nothing like summing up big, important works of literature in six little words. It's kind of snarky, really. ;)
