Title: It Happened On Halloween
Wordcount: 100
Rating: PG 13
Summary: Key idea (Mendelsohn gets his revenge on House through accomplices out of jail) shamelessly stolen from [livejournal.com profile] menolly_au's Start Again.
Warnings: Implied violence. Coarse language. Spoilers for 8.01.
Note: Prologue to a longer fic but can also be read as a stand alone.

"Trick or treat?"

He had forgotten Halloween. Three kids, late teens by size.

"Neither. Go away."

"Step outside. Your rooms are bugged."

The voice is adult: so are the knives. The masks shine in the lamplight.

"Don't fuck with Mendelsohn ever again. Police watch may protect you, but not your boyfriend."

He didn't even bother contradicting, just pushed speed dial. No answer.

"Better hurry before he bleeds to death. We wouldn't have hurt him, but he put up a fight."

They ran away, faster than he could follow. He dialed 911 while walking to the police car at the corner.

It's going to be a bumpy ride. Angst ahead. (passes over tea and cookies)

A great prologue and a bit of a cliffhanger! Poor Wilson. :(

The great reward of writing sexless fics is that you can read them :).
So glad you liked the beginning. I'm afraid the rest will be more verbose.

Please write one more part. Hurt/comfort House/Wilson. Hope Wilson wasn't badly hurt.

There's more coming. All the way to Halloween, almost.

Uh oh, that doesn't sound good...poor Wilson! Looking forward to more!

No, not good. Definitely not good.

Wilson's currently being given three units of blood. You can see him when he's better.

I can totally hear and see House in my head saying that to me.

Can I post this on sick_wilson for the Halloween challenge? There's no Wilson in it, so Iwasn't sure.

S!W fics should be mostly about the man himself. This one is about House. I like it a lot as a standalone, and I'm looking forward to reading where you take it too, but as of right now it isn't a S!W story.

Thank you so much for the explanation (and for not being annoyed at me asking in a comment instead of PM'ing).
I thought so. But I can still be thankful to the sick_wilson challenge! the continuation, which after all has a different title, should be sick_wilsonish enough.

Oh so looking forward to this! Really excited it's going to be a long fic :D

Oh my! Thanks for addressing Mendelson's threat. Can't wait to read the next part.

As said, that was really menolly_au's idea. I justthought "what would they do if House was under police watch?"

Wait -- what? You're just -- just leaving us dangling like that?

Nooooooooo . . . . write faster . . . !

(barely resists temptation to blackmail you into writing more)
Don't worry, there's more. But nowI actually have to go and work.

Promising start!! More, please! Will Wilson die (she asked hopefully)?

You must be the first person to ever imply that I write too few deathfics :). I usually have the opposite problem.

From: [identity profile] damigella-314.livejournal.com
I need more morbid people. Because I do naturally write mostly deathfics or porn, and sometimes both together.

Bring it on!

Even as a one shot, I really liked this. The end was particularly shivery, which is very appropriate for this time of year. An awful lot packed into just a few words - really awesome :)

Thank you so much. I originally meant it as isolated, but then I couldn't bear leaving Wilson and House in such distress, so I came to a compromise and wrote a very verbose followup. Writing short is difficult for me, so I'm very happy to know I managed this time.

This was GOOD! I had to read your little not up top to figure out who's POV this was in. :)

From: [identity profile] damigella-314.livejournal.com
Yes, it was a bit unclear that's why I wrote it. Thank you so much for finding the courage!

I read the rest as well and while it was sad, it wasn't as sad as I thought it would be. :) Great job on the fic hon!
