Title: Feelin' Hot, Hot, Hot
Fandom: House M.D.
Rating: PG
Pairing: House/Wilson established
Summary: If only Wilson weren’t so damned hot.
Notes: Written for the Feverish Nekkid!Wilson challenge at Camp Sick!Wilson

 

James Wilson could not get warm. He had wrapped himself up as tightly in the comforter as he could, but still he shivered until his teeth rattled, until he winced to hear himself whimpering softly, until House rolled over heavily beside him and suggested that he shut the hell up and go to sleep already.

Wilson tried to retort, but somehow the words didn’t quite make it out of his mouth in the right order. After a second, House’s weight shifted again, and then Wilson felt a cool, firm hand being laid with surprising gentleness on his forehead.

“Wow, Wilson, you’re really hot.” House switched on the lamp on his bedside table, dragged himself out of bed, and limped away. When he returned, he yanked the covers out of Wilson’s clutches and began fumbling with the buttons on his pajama top. “Help me take off your clothes.”

“House,” Wilson groaned, weakly trying to push House’s hands away, “I’m not in the mood.”

House only smirked and undid Wilson’s drawstring.

“Knock it off, I’m sick,” Wilson protested feebly.

“Yeah, I got that. Have I ever mentioned my mad diagnostic skillz? Come on,” House leered as he patted the mattress encouragingly, “roll over.”

What? You have got to be kidding me,” Wilson shuddered.

“Wilson you moron,” House huffed in exasperation, “while I’m as turned on by the red-faced, glassy-eyed look as the next guy, I really am just trying to get your clothes off so I can cool you down.” He brandished a wet washcloth in front of Wilson’s nose.

“Oh,” Wilson responded sheepishly, and turned himself over onto his belly, still shivering. Cheek pressed into the pillow, he shifted his hips so that House could pull off his pajama bottoms and allowed his arms to be freed of first one sleeve and then the other. He felt something slipping lightly down his back, leaving a shimmering sensation behind it.

“All right,” House said briskly, “roll back over and take these.” He handed Wilson a couple of aspirin and a glass of water, which he helped him hold to his lips while he swallowed. Then he pushed Wilson back down against the pillows, dipped the washcloth in the basin of water he’d brought, wrung it out, and began sliding it over Wilson’s skin.

Wilson closed his eyes as the lovely cool cloth caressed his face and arms, then glided over his chest. When he opened them again, he felt strangely detached from his own body, as if he were floating just above it, watching House care for him with a surprisingly concerned expression on his face.

At last the antipyretics took effect, and the shaking eased. House helped him back into his pajamas and stripped the comforter off the bed, replacing it with a lighter blanket. When Wilson protested, he shrugged, switched off the light, and curled himself around the younger man’s body, lightly stroking his hair away from his damp forehead.

“You know,” House murmured in his ear while reaching down and squeezing his ass suggestively, “it’s a well-known fact that sex can help break a fever by making you sweat.”

“Shut up,” Wilson mumbled, and nestled back against him as he drifted into sleep.

I loved the contrast between House's words and his actions. Very IC. And you described Wilson's fever vividly. My skin felt shivery reading it. Excellent writing, as always.

I definitely have a soft spot for caustic! yet caring!House.

And you described Wilson's fever vividly. My skin felt shivery reading it.

I was able to draw on personal experience for the description of how Wilson felt because of the fever. Er, not so much for the other part *blushes*.

Hee! It was reading that bit about the effects of sex on fever that inspired this whole thing.

Aww, that was very sweet! Loved caretaker!House in this, especially the gentleness he showed. :)

*smile* Given House's less-than-optimal bedside manner on the show, I find it very challenging to write caretaker!House in character. Glad to hear that you liked this.

So. Much. Love. For this! I have a huge soft spot for them doing just domestic couply things. Cooking, shopping, dealing with one partner being sick.

So cute. They really are just too adorable together.

*smile* I have to admit that cute, domestic, & couply really isn't my thing in House fic, but [livejournal.com profile] jezziejay has a thing for it, too, so I gave it my best shot. Glad that you enjoyed it, and thanks for reading and commenting!

Oh yes, House's efforts of being a nurse to Wilson are very in-character :) And so is his last suggestion, having done his duty he is now looking to see if maybe he can get something out of the deal :) A very nice 'feel good' type of fic :)

LOL, glad that you enjoyed this and thought that it was in-character.

Now that I've fulfilled my feel-good fic quota, I'll be back to torturing everyone again ;).

Awwwww. This was really cute! I know you mentioned in another comment that you don't do cute very often, but I particularly like your brand; sweet without the cavities. :)

“while I’m as turned on by the red-faced, glassy-eyed look as the next guy, I really am just trying to get your clothes off so I can cool you down.”

Lol. Sorry, I read this line and imagined a group of House/Wilson fans sheepishly raising their hands. ;)

Also the last two lines were awesome. :) I love your more dramatic stories, but you should really write more fluff!

Ah, it's tough. Because fluff is not very much to my taste in general, and I find it hard to see these guys as fluffy in particular. It's the screwed-up complexity of their relationship that intrigues me. I do enjoy it, though, when House talks like a jerk but then acts like a decent human being, and that's what this is.

Thank you for reading and commenting! :)

I love how you describe House undressing Wilson. Love these lines:

"House only smirked and undid Wilson’s drawstring." Something about that line does it to me. Not sure if it's the word drawstring or the fact that House is doing it or the way he looks "smirked". LOL

"he shifted his hips so that House could pull off his pajama bottoms and allowed his arms to be freed of first one sleeve and then the other."

House telling Wilson to “roll over” was crazy good too.

I really enjoyed this.

Yeah, sure you are, House. Sure you are.

Very cute, very sweet, very nice :)

“Wilson you moron,” House huffed in exasperation, “while I’m as turned on by the red-faced, glassy-eyed look as the next guy, I really am just trying to get your clothes off so I can cool you down.”

I love this line. It showcases the rude, snarky, but ultimately caring House that I enjoy.

I also love a fevered and sweaty Wilson. This fic is a win-win. :)

I know you're quite fond of a fevered Wilson ;). I'm starting to see the advantages myself! And I do like a snarky! yet secretly caring!House.

Thank you for reading and commenting!

What a great little fic! I love fever fics, and snarkycaregiver!House was quite enjoyable since he stayed IC while still managing to make us go "Awww". I can't even feel sorry for Wilson that he's sick since he got such excellent (and hot - pun intended) care at House's hands.

Yeah, it's a tricky business to keep House in character while he's doing something nice ;). And, ahem, I can't help being just a little jealous of Wilson in this scenario.

Thank you for reading and commenting!
