House "What-If" Rec List - Index by Word Count

On the House "What-If" Rec List we share some of our favorite House, M.D. fics, 'verses, and authors that form a genre we call "What-If."

The index below includes all entries from our rec list. In order to list every single fic's word count we have listed each fic from within 'verses/series separately. Info in parentheses will steer you toward the main entry where you can find each fic or 'verse on the main rec list.




Notes:

  • On the House "What-If" Rec List we 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.

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

  • Use the sidebar at right to view our recs by by title, by category, by rec reason, by word count, by date, or in the author directory. The main rec list (by title) has the most detailed information per entry.

  • If you encounter any broken links or have trouble locating fics or authors/artists, please contact us by PM. Thanks.
