Hi, Auditrix here.
Thanks for taking the time to check out the Ficblog. This is an ongoing fic written from House’s point of view.
It started out as a lark, but then it grew and grew and grew….
new to the Ficblog, I’d recommend just taking some time and starting from the beginning. Just remember, this is
written in a diary format, so the oldest entries are at the bottom.
The best way is
to go to the front page
and look on the
sidebar on the right. Scroll down to where it says “Archives,” click “January 2005”, scroll to the bottom, and enjoy.
If you use a feed
reader, the House Ficblog has an Atom feed – link posted on the right sidebar. If you use the Firefox browser,
you can use the Live Bookmark tool. Live Bookmark is a great way to catch up – it’s easy to navigate from
older posts to newer posts.
Big thanks to
everyone who’s helped me with the blog, especially readers who have taken the time to leave feedback.
…to Dr Mac for helping me with a lot of the medical details, especially for the infarction story
… to betas Namaste, sy dedalus, and jennamajig
…to Marisol for musical fact-checking
in a hurry and just want to get to the Big Infarction Story – or if you’ve been reading all along and want to
find a favorite post – here are some quick links. Hope they’re helpful.

Ripples: a companion fic
Who’s Who/ a quick recap
From the start,
a major theme in the ficblog has been backstory speculation. I adhere to canon as much as possible, but I keep any backstory
I’ve already written “as is”, including its original characters, even if it's been overtaken by canon.
This keeps the blog AU, but also keeps it internally consistent.
For example, in
the ficblog House has had a cleaning lady all along. (Her name is Mrs Brudzik.) House’s family also looks
a little different in the ficblog: his mother is named Nancy and his older brother is named Mark. Stacey and Cuddy are not involved in the ficblog infarction episode.
The ficblog also
includes a running backstory series about House in the early years of his career. As the series begins, House is in
the second year of his residency at a university hospital, and has just started a clinical rotation on a team that includes
medical student David Kopp. By chance, House meets Kopp’s girlfriend, an undergraduate named Eileen Abney.
House and Eileen
bump into each other a few times that spring, but House doesn’t see her again until later that year, just before Christmas.
He finds himself giving her a ride home on Christmas Eve, on his way to visit his own family. He also extracts a promise
from her to go bowling when she gets back to campus in January. Eileen keeps her promise, but the evening doesn’t
end up quite the way House had hoped.
House makes his way through his residency we get to meet several of his bosses and colleagues. He serves rotations under
several attending physicians, including Dr. Ball and Dr. Doyle (GI-Hepatology), Dr. Ogilvie (General Medicine), Dr. Roderick
(Neurology), and Dr. Hirsch. To House’s chagrin, Dr. Roderick and another attending, Dr. Jennings, nominate him
for the position of Chief Resident.
