The Cat That Walked By Himself by Secondary Author

'Counting out loud, he came up with the names of at least seven dogs he'd owned as a kid. Well, not so much owned as inherited: usually they came with the military housing, left behind by previous occupants along with dying houseplants and mismatched crockery.' An unusual & memorable character exploration that wanders around a bit, but always rings true

Maryland by Shalott

'"New project, kids," he announced, coming in. "I want to know everything there is to know about the oncology department." ' Shalott's take on House boasts strong characterisations all round, and despite the lack of patient of the week, there's more of the feel of an episode than much fanfiction for this series

Pain and Magic by Violet Quill

'"This is possibly the most boring case you have ever brought before me. A cranky old man with problems controlling his bladder and arthritis. Call in the frickin' cavalry." / "And he thinks he's a wizard."' A jewel of a premise, with spot-on characterisations all round (House/HP)
