HMDFanFic: Wickedness of Love [GH/RC]  
Title: Wickedness of Love
Author: cs_whitewolf
Rating(s): PG/13-Rated.
Pairing(s): Gregory House/ Robert Chase.
Word Count: 475words.
Summary: The love of the wicked is more dangerous than their hatred.
Prompt i: Just a little something written for teamane’s Proverb Challenge. Using quotes #17, #6, #26 and #5.
Prompt ii: Also added to my shiny new  housefic50Gregory House/Robert Chase table for prompt #o18 Consequences.
A/N: The last proverb is one I found myself and which I thought went rather nicely as an ending, if a bit elusive.

Forbidden fruit is the sweetest…
 
He knows. Knows as he watches Chase through the glass walls of his office, watches Chase as the young man sits in wide-eyed anticipation of his interview; House knows that Chase is the one. Robert Chase, yes, that’s the one. It is easy to dismiss the girl simpering for his attentions, her cleavage begging him for the job and though he feels a twinge of regret at letting her go, when Chase walks into the room and takes his seat, feigned elegance and disinterest, when Chase walks in, he knows: forbidden fruit is the sweetest; Chase will taste just like sin upon his lips, he knows. This he knows.
 
Full of courtesy, full of craft…
 
It takes him a while to learn. It takes him a while to realise, to realise that beneath the kindness there lies underlying intent, that House does nothing without the knowledge of repayment. A door held open, a not-so-sarcastic quip about his hair- and Chase learns that beneath every kindly look, House wants something, wants something from him; he is powerless to resist. For House is full of courtesy, soft touches and a softer mouth; House is full of craft, wicked fingers, wicked mind- taunting and teasing and leaving him trapped and wanting more. God so much more.
 
As you sow, so will you reap…
 
He isn’t sure. Isn’t sure how it happened, how he first lost control of the situation. It was sometime after hiring the second, but before the third, when his eyes turned upon Chase’s and he froze- only a moment, but House froze, and Chase saw and he knew. He has the power now. And House cannot grip onto the control he once held so tightly over him, watches as it slip-slip-slips through his fingers, ‘as you sow…’ House arches beneath the control Chase dances down his naked back, ‘so you will reap,’ and sin never tasted so good, or hurt so much, and godgodgod… he was losing control.
 
Appearances are deceptive…
 
It amuses him. It amuses him so much to learn, to learn the art of the manipulation and change himself from wide-eyed innocence to the deceptive, the lover in control. Chase sits, pencil chewed up in his mouth and grins about the end, sits and grins and smiles and laughs so silently at the comic irony as House exerts his control over him. And he lets him, lets House have his fun at work because when the day is done, Chase knows it’s playtime and then he’s incharge. He’s the one giving the demands, the abuse, the nails scratching down his back… House called him angel once, held him so close and spun like glass, but Chase has horns nowadays and now House calls him, ‘oh God, ohgodohgodohgod…’
 
The love of the wicked is more dangerous than their hatred.

Thank you, mi'dear! I'm rather pleased with how it turned out myself :)

Peace,

You have this way of writing about them that makes me grin like an idiot
Campaspe: Sexy Beast Lauriecs_whitewolf on October 9th, 2006 09:53 pm (UTC)
:D That's a fabulous compliment, thanks!

I hope to induce more grinning then as I've plenty more H/C fics to write now that I've signed up for Housefic50!

*iz ded*

First off, I love the style of this. Repetativness is a wonderful tool when used correctly and you've used it wonderfully. Second off, the way you described House's journey from controller to worshiper is beautiful.

My favorite part, because a good ending makes a fic what it is: but Chase has horns nowadays and now House calls him, ‘oh God, ohgodohgodohgod…’
Campaspe: HMD Quote 'not gay but delightful'cs_whitewolf on October 9th, 2006 09:31 pm (UTC)
Oh you've got me grinning now! Thank you, very much, for such a wonderful comment- I do adore using repetition/different writing styles and so am very pleased you found it of ease to read :)

Thanks so much for reading!
Peace,
CS WhiteWolf

(P.S. That last line was one of my favourites too!)

What a perfect way to end up a day at work! I'm so glad you took the challenge! :p
Thank you. Thank . Thank you. ♥ ♥ ♥
I can't get enough of Chase and House. I wrote a fic too but it's beeing beta. It may take awhile until I post it. My first HC story.
:D
Campaspe: House BWcs_whitewolf on October 9th, 2006 09:35 pm (UTC)
Heh, I thank you for posting the challenge in the first place, I really did have fun with it even if this piece is barely more than a drabble! :)

I look forward to reading your H/C fic too, there's nothing so exciting as posting for the first time! ('cept getting all the reviews, of course.)

Peace,
CS WhiteWolf

Campaspe: Snape is Not Amusedcs_whitewolf on October 9th, 2006 09:41 pm (UTC)
Thank you for taking the time to comment, telling me you enjoyed my story is enough of a compliment, no profound observations needed (this time at least ;D)

Peace,
CS WhiteWolf

(And thanks for the icon love, though I didn't make it myself, it's wonderful for spreading the Snupiny goodness!)
merlin7: photoshopjunkie 22clarkangel on October 9th, 2006 09:28 pm (UTC)
Very very cool. And I can totally see Chase having that kind of power over House in that kind of way. Heeeee
Campaspe: HMD O RLY?cs_whitewolf on October 9th, 2006 09:48 pm (UTC)
I find the thought of it rather delicious myself, heh. Thank you very much for reading, hun, I'm glad it was believable enough :)

Peace,

ohhhhh yessss. i never thought such a situation would be possible, but now that ive read it, it exists. very articulate and well worded. loves it!
Campaspe: HMD Vicodin Lovecs_whitewolf on October 10th, 2006 06:58 am (UTC)
Thanks so much :) I'm very pleased you think so. And I do think House needs to be 'controlled' every so often; Chase was lucky enough to be the one. heh.

Cheers for reading!
Peace,
CS WhiteWolf

You should be chuffed! - really, really adore this. The prompts are so unusual, I haven't seen anything quite like this before.
Campaspe: Dean Likes Writing P0rncs_whitewolf on October 10th, 2006 07:01 am (UTC)
:D Oh I am! And it's all for reading these wonderful comments. The prompts were wonderfully unusual- if you're a writer I urge you to check them out and maybe even tackle some yourself, I don't think anyone else has yet written for them!

Thanks soso much for reading,
Peace,

Very nice "spider web" of a fic - it drew me right in, and then captured me!

Oh, and incidentally, it turns out that this is the perfect fic to be reading while listening to The Velvet Underground sing "Sweet Jane." LOL.
Campaspe: DW resurrectedcs_whitewolf on October 11th, 2006 04:48 pm (UTC)
I love the imagery of your review! It's fabulous, lol. Thanks for reading, mi'dear, I'm very pleased you liked it! I've not heard 'Sweet Jane' but I'll take the 'to-read-with' compliment anyway :)

Peace,
CS WhiteWolf
