We wanted to have a good time today, and we thought it was only right that Wilson should share in the celebration.

Wilson attends, hosts, or inadvertently hosts a party (like in that S5 bachelor party episode), and naturally things go horribly wrong.

Comment with more specific ideas of exactly what might happen to our favorite oncologist, a fic (either in the comments below or posted separately), a three-sentence story, or any other form of art you like.

Help yourself to totally-not-spiked punch while you're at it.  And please keep an eye out for oncologists trying to sneak away!

To our housewarming party!

Please come join us on Wednesday, May 3, to celebrate our newly refurbished Dreamwidth site. There will be cookies and punch, and our favorite oncologist may just make an appearance.

We hope to see you there!

Important notice to all our wonderful contributors over the years: please, please, please double check your fics here on DW to be sure the links are still working (though if you know that we know where to find you other than LJ, you can safely ignore this).  We want to be here for many more years and we want your fics here with us.

Sickfic fanatics everywhere thank you!!

Menolly made the collage above to get you in the mood for day of Wilsony romance, and here's your challenge: Wilson tries to do something special for Valentine’s Day — whether it’s proposing to House, asking House for a first date, or arranging a spectacular evening with House — and it all goes horribly wrong.

Just a reminder... we have a Dreamwidth presence at https://sick-wilson.dreamwidth.org/

We've never used our mirror site much so there may be a few gremlins wandering about. Let us know if something isn't working!

No Sick!Wilson event would be complete without some festive badges for you to collect.

Nab one of the fall-themed badges below each time you complete a challenge or take part in an activity or discussion. Choose the one-star badge after you’ve completed your first mission, the two-star badge for your second, and so on.

We have a super-cute Super!Wilson badge for those who go above and beyond—to help encourage your participation.

Have at it!

Hello, everyone, and welcome to the Sick!Wilson Fall Fling!

To honor the shift in seasons—and the ever-evolving ways in which Wilson can fall ill or suffer injury—our theme for this event is: Change.

There are many ways to interpret that idea. Wilson could be his hapless self in an alternate universe. He could suffer an affliction that alters his personality. He could become fed up with his life and make a transition no one expected. He could dye his hair blond and suffer the emotional fallout of House’s ridicule.

As you can see, the possibilities are endless. We’ll be here for the next two weeks to supply you with creative inspiration, whether you’re a writer or artist. We’ll also have some fun activities and discussion—So there will be something for every Sick!Wilson fan.

We’ll get things rolling right away. (Wilson can’t wait!) Stay tuned for a post from [livejournal.com profile] yarroway later today.

As always, if you have questions, feel free to PM any of the friendly mods here: me ([livejournal.com profile] sassyjumper), [livejournal.com profile] yarroway or [livejournal.com profile] menolly_au.

Have fun, Fling-ers!

To celebrate the changing of the seasons we are throwing a party here on sick_Wilson. The Fall Fling will run from Monday, Sept. 26 through Friday, Oct. 7.

Come on by and say hello, chat with us, play a game or do a challenge. We have a fully stocked first aid kit for Wilson just waiting to be used. See you then!

Happy 2016, everyone! Our wonderful member, [livejournal.com profile] blackmare, reminded us that there's no better way to start the year off than with a party.  So let's celebrate the New Year with style. Come one, come all to the 2016 Fic Party.

We'll provide some prompts to start you off. Please reply in the comments section either with a fill or with some prompts of your own--or both! Prompts can be filled multiple times. There are no length limits--fics can be as many or as few words as you like.

Hey Fest-goers! I thought we could all take a break from creating and just gather round and play a game. One person will post a series of dashes representing some form of ailment, illness, injury, pain, condition, etc., making sure to separate each word with a dash (/). The next person will reply to your post by guessing two letters, The original poster will then reply to that guess with an updated puzzle showing if and where the letters fit. For example:

S _ _ _ _ _ R _
Is there a u or an n?
S U N _ U R N

Please wait to guess letters until there is a reply to the guess before yours. If you think you know what it is, you can guess that, too! Whoever solves the puzzle will then start a new thread with the word or phrase of their choice--so don't solve it if you're about to be away from your computer for a while! I’ll start us off.

Don't forget! Tomorrow we head on over to [livejournal.com profile] house_wilson quote prompts.

Ever since the days of Camp Sick!Wilson, we've given out badges. No event would be the same without your participation. So to show our appreciation and to encourage everyone to join in, we came up with some badges for y'all.

Go ahead and grab a badge whenever you fill a challenge or participate in a game, poll or conversation (just one per activity, please!). And if you're the shy type who's never joined in before, we hope this will give you a little nudge into introducing yourself and trying out some new things here at the Fest.

The first thing you do wins you the one star badge, the second thing earns the two star badge, and so on.

Hello, and welcome to the House Community Festival!

There are four communities participating in the Fest, and activities will be happening in each. So if you aren't familiar with [livejournal.com profile] house_wilson, [livejournal.com profile] house_rewind or [livejournal.com profile] house_memories, go take a look and meet the lovely people there.

Today is the start of the Fest, and we're thrilled to kick it off for you. Menolly_au will be by in a little while to get the fun started.

I need to mention a few things about the Fest. This is a cross-community event, and each comm has it's own rules. We ask that you be mindful of this. Here at sick_Wilson, we welcome all sorts of entries--artwork, fics, poems, and discussion. We want all creative works to have some sick!Wilsony content--the more the better! We also ask that you tag your entries and put all longer or NSFW entries behind a cut. If you have something to contribute, speak up! If you have a question about this comm or just don't know how to do something, please ask. You can pm any of your friendly neighborhood sick!Wilson mods, myself ([livejournal.com profile] yarroway), [livejournal.com profile] menolly_au, or [livejournal.com profile] sassyjumper. Or you can just take a look at our handy dandy sidebar, which has a lot of links you might find helpful.

Thank you all for coming to RenFest! You all make this community the fun place it is. Sadly it's time for us to take down the tents and return the costumes, but we hope to do this again--or something very like it. On behalf of the mod team, I'd like to thank our two dedicated, amazing Pages, [livejournal.com profile] mnstrtruckslash and [livejournal.com profile] barefootpuddles, for keeping RenFest going.

Congratulations to The C-Word, the winner of the sick!Wilson episode contest! The Fest has brought us 7 new fics, 4 55-word fics, and 12 new pieces of fanart.

Don’t forget that although the festival is over, here at sick_Wilson we're always open for fics, drabbles, poems, macros, and vids, and we’ll gladly accept any late camp entries you might be finishing off.

Good morning/afternoon/evening, RenFest revelers! Today I thought we could all take a break from jousting and head over to the tavern for some drink and conversation. In the spirit of looking back in time, we mods want to know:

What are your favorite “what if?” scenarios from canon?

For example: What if Wilson’s couch chemo had worked? How would you see the end of the series playing out?

Or what if we (and House?) had actually met Danny? … What if House had followed up on his discovery (in "Resignation") that Wilson was on antidepressants? … What if we’d learned what Wilson’s life was like while House was in prison?

Feel free to discuss those questions, or your own “what if?” scenarios, in the comments section below. The only requirement is that your ideas have a sick!Wilson-y flavor. We might even generate some fic inspiration. ;)

Fill your goblets with ale and stay a while!
[identity profile] geekygecko.livejournal.com
Ready to earn your first badge and start using it right away?  Cool!

We thought we'd get things started with an open thread.  All you need to do is post a least one comment below, and then go help yourself to the one-star Reveler badge on the self-serve badge thread. :-)

You can:
  • Drop by and introduce yourself

  • Post plot bunnies or other bits of inspiration for sick!Wilsony goodness

  • Share any RenFest (or similar) experiences that might have sick!Wilson potential

  • Or you can just help yourself to the refreshments, visit with your fellow fest-goers, bounce ideas off of each other, or whatever your sick!Wilson heart desires. :-)

For example, one time when I attended the Texas Renaissance Festival with some cousins, I forgot to read the handout they give you at the entrance because we girls were too busy buying garlands for our hair. ;-)

So when a RenFest sheriff selected me at random to ask what the king's colors were for that year, I didn't know, and got put in a pillory for a few minutes.  It was all in good fun, of course...until the guy started tickling me and wouldn't stop!  I couldn't catch my breath, and unfortunately, the sheriff was behind me and couldn't see my distress, and my cousins were too busy laughing to help.  I was beginning to think I was going to be literally tickled to death when someone FINALLY realized I wasn't kidding about not being able to breathe, and got me out of that darned thing. :-)

Thank goodness nothing like that would ever happen to Wilson.  Or would it?

Greetings, Revelers!

We have made some changes to our badges in order to reflect the spirit of a Renaissance festival.  All badges are self-serve. Although their titles may be new, the badges are mostly the same...mostly.

  • New this year is the Archivist badge, which is awarded for cross-posting your new creations on a non-LJ site (e.g., Dreamwidth, AO3, FFN, etc.), as well as any of your older fics that are currently listed in our Triage Area at our emergency shelter.  Just send us a link and grab a badge.

  • Reveler badges are the same as the usual Camper badges, and are given for joining in the festivities.

  • Scribe badges are awarded for fics and drabbles.

  • Bard badges are awarded for filks and poems of all kinds.

  • Artisan badges are awarded for art, vids and macros.

  • Alchemist badges are awarded for manips and icons.

  • There is one higher level badge, the Knight.  You can be knighted if you earn 5 stars in any one specialty (Scribe, Bard, Artisan, Alchemist) and the 5 star Reveler badge.  Alternatively, you can be knighted if you earn 1 star in 3 of the 4 Specialty categories --and you can substitute a 5-star Reveler badge for 1 specialty category.

Confused?  Hopefully the handy-dandy charts below will help.

And as an added bonus, if you want, here are some user pics you can use until you can earn some shiny new badges. :-)

Good morrow, all ye Fest-goers! Welcome to our first ever Sick!Wilson Renaissance Festival!

Never been to a RenFest, and have no idea what one is except for what you saw in the episode Knight Fall? Here's some info we hope you'll find helpful. :-)

But in a nutshell, it's kinda like stepping back in time and wandering around a Medieval and/or Renaissance village, often with elements of fantasy and the supernatural thrown into the mix.

So what does this mean for our favorite oncologist, besides a rebirth of sick!Wilsony goodness? Pretty much anything you want it to.

You can go back in time and create something that takes place at any point in the show's history. For example, if you thought season two was the best season ever, you can write a fic, drabble, poem, filk, or create whatever tickles your sick!Wilson fancy for those glorious days of yore. And if you have some old unfinished stories or other goodies on your hard drive that you felt canon had rendered obsolete, you can dust them off and give them another chance. :-)

You can send Wilson back in time to the Renaissance period (or any point in history), whether it's in an AU setting, in a nightmare, in a fevered delirium, due to a head injury, etc. :-)

You could inflict a little woe (or a lot!) on Wilson while he's attending a RenFest.

And don't forget, this event overlaps with Halloween, so please feel free to scare Wilson half to death. Or completely, even if just temporarily. ;-)

So grab a turkey leg, and come join the fun! Just don't touch the one at the end of the table. It has salmonella, and we're saving it for Wilson. ;-)

If you signed up to be a Page for RenFest, and would like to use a RenFest themed userpic when posting your activities, here are some that the mod team has put together for you.  Or you can create your own!

Thanks for so graciously volunteering your time and talents to help us keep Wilson in the first-aid tent, and we very much look forward to seeing what you have in store for him. *rubs hands together in fiendish glee*

We still need two more volunteers to help us post challenges and activities.  So if you'd like to sign up, just let us know in the comments section below, or PM one of the mods. :-)

                                                             Hear Ye, Hear Ye!

All ye Kings and Queens, Knights and Nobles, Gentlefolk all.

We proclaim a Sick!Wilson Festival to begin upon the 20th day of October. Come join us. There will be games, badges, dragons, challenges, and fun for all (except Wilson)!

We want to encourage a rebirth of sick!Wilsony goodness. So send Wilson back in time to your favorite season--or all the way back to the Renaissance! Dust off some unfinished stories or art, and give them another go. Send Wilson to a Renaissance Faire, or reincarnate him at any point in the past or future...if only in his feverish dreams. Send House along to provide companionship and that all important TLC...or not, if you have something sadder in mind.

The RenFest will run from Monday 10/20--Friday, 10/31.
