    I'm so glad to see you back for this challenge! [:D]

    And these were lovely. You have such a lock onto Cuddy's voice, and it was great to get such a peak at her character through your words. =D=

    Some particulars that I enjoyed:


    Abstruse: And that is the whole crux of their relationship.

    Blight: [face_laugh] It's like pulling on her pig tails. :p

    Contend: I love their chemistry. All three of them.

    Dicey: So many reasons that could be said . . . [face_laugh]

    Extent: She is such a stone, all of the time, and it is both sad and beautiful to see. :(


    Thank-you for such a wonderful character sketch. =D=

    Wow! A very good look into Cuddy's mind.

    I especially liked : She didn't always understand House, but for some reason, she cared about him anyway.
    I think that really sums up her relationship with House.

    And that last one... wow!

    Great job!

    Mira_Jade: You have such a lock onto Cuddy's voice, and it was great to get such a peak at her character through your words.

    Thank you so much! I wrote these to help deal with some issues in my own life, but I love Cuddy, and I tried really hard to capture *her* voice, not my own. :p So I'm so glad you thought it sounds like her.

    Contend: I love their chemistry. All three of them.

    I know! I like just about all of the characters, but House, Cuddy, and Wilson really had something special.

    Thank you again. [:D]

    mavjade: I'm glad you liked the last one - it's my favorite. Thank you so much for reading!
