so tonight I was watching the season one episode ‘detox’ in my super erratic re-watch of house.
and wow at the end, when wilson is talking to house about his addiction, the way his voice breaks, the anger there, the desperation - it just really drives home how helpless wilson feels as he watches his best friend, the person he cares about most in the world, the only constant he’s known for two decades, destroy himself.
like, wilson remembers house pre-addiction (pre-infarcation), has been there through all of it, through the worst of house’s suffering. he’s taken house’s curses and abuses in stride. has stayed when house told him to leave. when house has successfully convinced every other person in his life - including stacy- to get the hell out.
I just remember that, back in the day, a lot of people hated on wilson for his actions in that episode - and I’m not saying that his tricking house into detoxing was the right thing to do, because it wasn’t, not at all. but wilson misses house, as house used to be, the person whose company he treasured for 20 years before it all came crashing down around them.
and he’s scared, scared that’s he’s eventually going to lose his friend to this addiction. that there will come a day that he can’t ride it out anymore, can’t be what house needs (because whatever wilson offers, it isn’t enough, it can’t change what happened to house). that one day, house will succeed in driving him away as well. (and, of course, in wilson’s mind, that would be his own fault too, just another failing.)
I swear to god, I just get so frustrated when people use this episode - or any other - as evidence that wilson doesn’t love house the way house loves wilson. because sticking by an addict is damn hard and of course wilson trying to “fix” house is wrong and is going to end badly for both of them, but what can we really ask of him? wilson is in a scary, frustrating, helpless place, and there’s no one with whom he can talk about this - because the person he would normally go to with something like that?
well, that’s house.
#wow even all these years later I just feel so strongly for wilson#and basically:#if wilson didn’t love house a whole helluva lot#he’d have been gone way before this episde#people who think house’s love for wilson was one-sided are wrong#point blank
this makes me wanna rewatch so badly - wish i had the tiiime ;~;

this was really fun to draw LOL
theres a giant burning orb in the sky and it can burn your flesh, it can give you diseases, it can kill you, looking directly at it causes physical pain, and we all think this is okay. we like this orb. we like to go outside and lie around on our backs when this orb is in the sky. children draw cute pictures of this levitating death orb with a smiley face on it. what is wrong with us
