Pairing: Gregory House/Lisa Cuddy
Blurb: House and Cuddy kind of snuck up on me. When I first started to watch House, I didn't think I would have a new ship with this fandom. But, by season 2, I was totally in love with them. And they never disappointed me. They have a history, know each other since college, have spend a night together, and each new season bring a new revelation about their past. What I really love about them is the angst that surround them. And she's probably his longest friend and vice versa. She's been by his side whenever he was hurt, during the infraction, when he was shot, or after he tried to help Amber. They trust each other, and that's what matters the most, I think. AND the desk must have some sort of significance for them. When they were dancing on Time After Time, he finally talked to her about that night back in college. They're in my Top Three, and they'll stay here for a long time.
Fic Rec #1: The Abyss
Why This Must Be Read: This story has been written for this year House Big Bang. It's basically a 'What if it had been more than one night?' fic, and follow House and Cuddy from College to PPTH, the ups and downs of their couple. There's ton of angst and romance, so if you're a fan of that kind of fic, this one is for you!
Fic Rec #2 So far, so good (is only the beginning)
Why This Must Be Read: This fic is just beautiful and it's completely in character. If you love House and Cuddy saying that nothing good can happen if they get together, and Wilson playing matchmaker to convince them otherwise, you'll love this fic.
Fic Rec #3: Fade to Black
Link: Link to part One
Why This Must Be Read: A really angsty fic, in each Cuddy and House are trapped in the collapse of a part of PPTH. It deals with the consequences, which is why it's so angsty, as well as their relationship after it happened. A must read.
Fic Rec #4: Reach Out, Hold Back
Why This Must Be Read: A beautiful fic centered on Cuddy, from childhood to the present time and future, with a lot of House/Cuddy too. Once more, it has a bit of angst in it, but you can't help it when it comes to House and Cuddy.
Fic Rec #5: Five Times Cuddy was right
Why This Must Be Read: A short, yet great fic starting with the infarction, and showing times where Cuddy was right and House was wrong, even if he doesn't want to admit it.
Fic Rec #6: Soft Spot
Why This Must Be Read: A future fic where Rachel is five, and loves House. And where House is, well, being House. House and Cuddy tries to deal with the fact that some things seem to be pushing them together. Sadly, this is a WIP, and the author hasn't updated in some time.
Fic Rec #7: Rediscovery
Author: Eleanor J.
Why This Must Be Read: House and Cuddy are stranded at his apartment during a blizzard and then rediscover their past friendship, and more. Not to forget that Wilson is playing matchmaker in this fic. Well-written and in character.
Fic Rec #8: Techniques in Skywriting
Why This Must Be Read: Another fic that follows Cuddy through her life. Not a lot of House/Cuddy, but it deals with it beautifully.
Fic Rec #9: A Little Pick Me Up
Why This Must Be Read: House, Cuddy and the motorcycle. Do I need to say more? Ok, then, there's what we all love, aka House/Cuddy banter, and Cuddy get to ride the bike after House towed her car, well called someone to tow it, actually. And did I say that she gets to ride the bike?
Fic Rec #10: Adagio
Why This Must Be Read: Written for last year's House Big Bang. There's a lot of angst, some House/Cuddy and some Cuddy/OMC. This is post-Joy, and Cuddy has kind of lost hope of having a baby one day, hence the angst. A must read.
