lit_luminary: (Rona and Minerva)
[personal profile] lit_luminary
As an introduction, everyone's dæmons (names, forms and the significance thereof, as well as a few paragraphs to explain what dæmons are to those who aren't familiar with His Dark Materials) are listed here.  Note that fics are posted in order of internal chronology, not necessarily the order in which they were written.

Filed below is an early experiment with the idea of dæmons for House et al.: House and Wilson and their respective dæmons embark on a relationship, and begin working through the issues unearthed by the Tritter disaster.


Shifting Balances
(formerly Dæmonverse AU)
Vigil
When he finds House OD’d, Wilson can’t leave.
(House/Wilson preslash)

Not Just a Puzzle
Getting together in the wake of the drugged coffee debacle.
(House/Wilson)
Warning for semi-explicit sexual content.

And Come Daylight
The morning and afternoon after.
(House/Wilson)

Accepting Limits
Wilson is changing the rules. House isn’t sure he approves.
(House/Wilson)

Having gotten the idea of how to write the characters with their dæmons, I threw canon parameters out the window and brought the societal norms of Philip Pullman's world to PPTH.  This fusion of the two worlds created something much richer, and far larger, than I expected at the onset.

This is wonderful. Thank you so much for doing this. So convenient for mem'ing!
And I'm looking forward to the work in progress.

Well, you were right when you said I needed a masterlist for this: looking it over, it's grown so many different branches that it demanded more organization than the tagging system alone could give it.

As far as the work in progress, it's coming along nicely: I just have to finish the beginning, write the end, and be sure they both connect seamlessly to the middle. (I normally write in sequence, but this story insisted on arriving out of order and having the middle done first.)

Thanks for the masterlist - this makes it easier for me to see how the stories in the AU vs. AAU fit together. I first read your Dæmonverse fics on FF.net, starting with "Principles" and reading them in order of publication.

I never could get into the Pullman books... Even though I enjoy speculative fiction, the books seemed a bit too "other" for me to spend energy parsing how the dæmons/society/characters worked. Your 'verses are easy for me to get into because I'm already invested in the characters/setting of House. Very enjoyable -- looking forward to future installments.
