A Pocket Full of Murder

!&*#@$!

Why, why, WHY is it that just when I come up with what I think is a great idea for a diagnosis, and spend half the day researching it and the other half writing it into my Housefic, do I come across a story (and in this case a canonical story) that's going to make all my hard-won and carefully developed ideas seem derivative and old hat?

*curses the writers of "Clueless" bitterly*

It's not that the diagnosis in that episode is the same as the one in my fic, it's just that in one conversation Foreman and House mentioned practically all the tests and all the treatments I'd come up with over the past 24 hours. Gnarr!

Also, why was this episode so dark and moody-looking compared to the entire rest of the season? Did they hire the lighting staff from The X-Files or what?

*grumps*
