Everyday Superheroes / Power Generation 'verse — House Masterpost  

Everyday Superheroes/Power Generation 'verse — House Fic Masterpost

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." Story elements range from wildly fantastical to essentially realistic, but all depart significantly from canon reality.

The Everyday Superheroes / Power Generation 'verse is one of the entries featured on our rec list, and to help you delve into these fics, we provide the masterpost below. Enjoy!

Everyday Superheroes / Power Generation 'verse by hannahrorlove & yunafire & akire_yta, with fan art by admyrrek (Rated PG to NC-17)

Power Generation is a fan-constructed universe that began life in the Everyday Superheroes challenge, which asked writers to give characters in other fandoms superpowers. Not in the Superman, save-the-world kind of way, but as an exploration of what it means to be different from other people.

In the nine House-fandom fics (see below), Wilson was born with a tail, and Chase develops a power while working at PPTH. Although you don't need to read the larger Power Generation 'verse to enjoy the House stories, the Introduction post has a wealth of information that may intrigue you.

"Hannahrorlove requested tailed!Wilson and 'How one or more of his immediate relatives thinks of him' or 'Him as a very little boy doing something we would consider cute, like hiding inside a really small space' This fic was meant to be the second, but it kinda ended up somewhere between the two."

Pairing-centered stories:

Everytime I Fall (WIP) [LJ] by akire_yta (200 words. March 2007. Not Rated)

Dreams of Trees [LJ] by akire_yta (700 words. March 2007. Not Rated, but ~NC-17.)

Chair [LJ] by akire_yta (1,800 words. March 2007. Not Rated, but ~NC-17.)
"The doctor in him can’t help but notice how different Wilson feels under his hands – it was one thing to know your closest friend was physically different from others, but another to feel it, like this."

Wedding Dance, The [LJ] by akire_yta (800 words. March 2007. Not Rated, but ~PG-13.)
"They had practiced this, danced for hours around the backyard, first out of duty, then out of joy. Under the stars, alone, they had span and laughed and tripped over their feet until finally the movements came together. It was the closest they had come to flying hand in hand." Chase and his bride dance at their wedding.
