Subject: It's not goodbye....
Hi I'm Anam, I started watching a few years into it in my anatomy class and instantly feel in love with the show and the character and soon became a diehard fan. I've seen the episodes multiple times each, I have the DVDs, the books, the magazines that had them featured. I’ve never been this affected by a show before. I laughed, I cried, I flailed alongside many other house fans. September of 2007 was when I started officially watching the show, it was Season 4. I was seeing the first some in school but I started watching it and decided to catch up on Seasons 1-3. The show was a piece of art, not only were the characters intriguing but it sparked this love for medicine in me that I never knew I had. I was squeamish at the sight of blood before this show and completely ruled out a career in medicine/healthcare. But the more I watched the more I was fascinated by the medical mysteries and the more I wanted it. I was a senior in high school, graduating, and decided pre-med as a major to start college. It didn’t last :P but my love for medicine did. I always found myself craving the show and never got tired of watching reruns. My favorite episode will always be Three Stories, but there were a lot that have a special place in my heart. Who’s Your Daddy, Airborne, House’s Head/Wilson’s Heart, Joy to name a few. I always said House helped me figure out my life goal, without this show I wouldn’t have realized my calling was health and I wouldn’t have fantasized Cuddy’s job as an end goal J. With that in mind I soon found that this was the place for me and that sometimes you find your callings in the most bizarre ways, a TV show meant for entertainment led me to a career path. Some say that isn’t the smartest choice that TV just makes everything pretty, but I know this is where I’m meant to be.
The actors on this show are all so wonderful and when I started watching I instantly was drawn to the lovely Lisa Edelstein, Cuddy. She brought an aura to the scene that was magical. Since I started watching in Season 4 I wasn’t completely sure what was going on. Seeing House and Cuddy on the set and their chemistry between them, my mind decided that they were already a couple, I seriously thought they were dating or married. And the fact that they never did “couple things”, as I called it once, (kissing, hugging, schtupping) I got confused and asked a friend who was a regular watcher “Why don’t they do couple things?” she looked at me and laughed. She said maybe because they aren’t a couple, that day forward I became a diehard Huddy. And when Huddy did get together I was over the moon.
Looking back, had I started from the beginning I might have actually started off shipping Hacy in season 2 but evolved to huddy later. Ships aside, the lovely Hugh Laurie had my heart from the moment the camera shot a close up of his beautiful blue eyes. They can make you melt from a TV screen. There are so many different things of this show that I love and will never forget. Although House is coming to an end, it will live on in our hearts, this show brought a lot of people into my life and I cherish every one of them. The friends I made on Twitter, House forums, Tumblr will continue to be my friends as years continue and we will look back and remember the good old days. I love this show and I always will. This isn’t a goodbye because the show will stay alive in our hearts.
