Author's Note: This is a sequel to The Price Of Silver, so you should read that first (or instead). My warmest thanks to nightdog_barks who generously gave me permission to write a sequel. It is very different in tone from the original, and is due to my desperate need to know what happened. No slash, strong h/w friendship. Thanks to karaokegal for answering a weird question reassuringly. Not beta read, because I can't change it.
Disclaimer: I don't own any of the House, MD characters, which is good since I tend to kill them.
