The House Fic "What-If" Rec List
06 January 2013 @ 01:33 am

Welcome to the Realm of What-If

Welcome to the House "What-If" Fanfic Rec List, by lit_luminary and resourceress7.

This is a place for us to share some of our favorite House, M.D. fics, 'verses, and authors that form a genre we call "What-If." Stories range from wildly fantastical to essentially realistic, but all depart significantly from canon reality.

Wonderful worldbuilding. Food for thought.

He's got the whole world(s) in his hands.
House contemplates his place(s) within the Ball-y Multiverse.

Come Explore

What makes a story what-iffy, and why would we rec it? Read definitions of our Fic Categories and Rec Reasons.

Use the sidebar links to navigate the rec list, which has separate postings indexed by title, category, rec reason, word count, date of publication, and author.
