I blame Smitty, as always

Not exactly the bunny she had in mind, but definitely going there.


She was slight, asian, and very, very beautiful. Her clothes were obviously expensive enough not to need a designer tag, and she walked...

Cameron couldn't find a word to describe how she walked. One second she had been at the office's door, entering as a flustered Chase held it open, and then... It had been something between walking, jumping, and dancing, or maybe something entirely different, but by the time any of them could *think*, the woman was already next to House.

Hugging him.

She seemed strangely happy to see him, and apparently had no intention of either talking or giving him back his personal space. Even more bizarrely, House had just hugged her back, lightly but with tenderness.

No harsh, sarcastic words. No threats with the cane. It was almost as embarassing as Chase's blush or Foreman's obvious staring. Somebody had to do something.

"Hi," said Cameron as she deliberatedly walked toward her. "You must be Batman's girlfriend." House did *not* have a monopoly on non sequitours, damn it.

The woman laughed softly. It was a pretty laugh, and Cameron found herself wishing... something.

"But not... House's," she said in a weird but musical accent. As if she were reasurring her, as if she knew whatever the hell there was to know. Cameron didn't, and she very much wanted to ask her.

The woman let go of House, still smiling.

"Miss you. Come visit," she said, and left without giving him time to refuse. Just like that.

Nobody said anything for a few seconds.

"She spends too much time with him," commented House. Nobody thought about asking who he was talking about.

It was too distracting to watch House smiling like that.


ETA: Because Cass is *not* tall.

Tim as House? Most perfect idea ever. Loved this, especially the trio's reaction that Tim/House let someone hug him without inflicting bodily harm.

House!Tim, while not a big corner of either fandom, it's a proud one. There's the whole issue with heights, continuity, etc, but we don't let details get in the way of the crack *g*

As soon as I get somebody else to write another snippet, I might even start a community and everything...

Love this. Love the whoooole idea of Tim-as-House, and now I'm wondering where Dick is. And Kon. And Bart. And...omg please never stop writing this. *obnoxious begging*

Hmmm. *Great* point. Given the timeframes, where *is* Dick? Who is Batman? Where are Kon and Bart? Might Kon be Superman? Might this be a future replacing Teen Titans 20, where Tim's decomission affected the timeline enough to prevent it?

I will accept many things, but never that Cass is tall. Other than that, please to continue supplying the excellent crack.

I gotta second the tall thing. My brain did a little squiggle trying to figure out why Shiva was Batman's girl-friend if she was also friends with Tim. At which point I realized it must be Cass. But, yeah, cheerfully enjoying this bizarre little AU.

Corrected. Not that playing with Shiva wouldn't be *fun*. I mean, Tim/House has dedicated himself to saving people - wonder why Shiva would thin of her "little bird" doing that.

Re: Fic

*facepalm* I'm a dolt.

Changed "tall" for "short", but I'm not sure it still sounds as good. Hmpf.

Re: Short
"Slight" is always a good substitute. It connotes short but not squat, which is probably why you used "tall" to begin with. Oops, ended on a preposition. Luckily, this is dialogue - a function of spoken language - not written language proper. :)

Re: Short
Good tip! Thanks!

Sweet!

I'd read the first snippet but somehow missed the second until I saw this one and went looking for it.

Now I'm musing over the similarities between Kon and Wilson and why each would end up as Tim's best friend....

*giggles* I'm not sure what'd happen if we mixed those two, but I'm sure it'd be *fun* to watch...

BWA! *LOVES YOU* House!Tim is fabulous. And everyone's reaction to Cass is spot-on. I adore Chase being speechless and well, useless, in the face of a pretty girl, when you know he thinks he's a stud. And of course Cass read Cameron's jealousy/apprehension/curiosity. Batman's girlfriend, my left fallopian tube. That line made me laugh out loud. ;D

Thank you. This makes me happy.

This is all *your* fault, you know, for giving the idea to Marcelo. And Marcelo's fault for writing two awesome snippets.

I've got ::goes to check:: 500 words of a House!Tim fic. And he's only just begun to snark, damn it.

I just found out that the hospital is in New Jersey. One more piece of evidence! Tim decided to leave, but he couldn't bear to be too far away! (I totally disregard the fact that House is way too tall and other teeny tiny minor inconsistencies like that. I live in a happy place.)

(Whoops. I should have said that I've already read the two snippets previous to this.)
