[round two] One and Two, by bell

Title: One and Two
Author: [personal profile] bell
Pairing: Amber/House/Wilson
Rating: NC-17
Length: 31 700 words
Spoilers: Diverges from canon starting from episode 4.14 Living the Dream.
Summary: Amber decides to make Wilson happy by adding House to their relationship, and realizes that by doing so, she may have subtracted herself.

Remember the idea I mentioned, earlier? Yeah. It came to me then, with a James who seemed so fantastically happy with so little, but what I alone couldn't provide for him. And that's why I said it. It came out easier than pulling his shirt over his head. "We should have sex with House."

Like I said, it made sense at the time.

James' languid jubilance fled the scene. He sat up, staring at me. It was comedic, really, because with his poor motor skills and that glare, he looked like he was imitating a cartoon villain. His hair was so tousled it was hard to take him seriously. "What?"

"You heard me." I ran my fingers around his abdomen, exaggerating the movement of my lips. It gets him going when I do that, if you know what I mean. Even drunk as he was, it had an effect on him. "A threesome: you, me, House."

He tried to put a hand over mine to stop me from caressing him, I guess, but he lost his balance and fell onto his back. "I knew I drank too much," James blinked, staring up at the ceiling.

When Amber realizes that, despite the fact that Wilson and Amber are in love, Wilson always manages to put House's welfare before Amber's when push comes to shove, she decides to make Wilson happy the only way she knows how. One and Two tells the story of Amber's journey once she makes Wilson realize that he loves House, too--and the fallout that inevitably occurs. [personal profile] bell has a fine grasp on Amber's characterization, making her sympathetic without softening any of her more abrasive traits, giving her a complexity that rings true throughout the story. In the first person, Amber's voice shines through, and she becomes a sympathetic character whose action has consequences she wasn't prepared to deal with. The delicacy of the love triangle, Wilson's reluctance and later enthusiasm, and House's unexpected response, all make One and Two an intriguing and believable story.
