Fic Commentary: Ouroboros

Title: Ouroboros
I hate picking titles. I like this one, though, because I decided on it before I wrote the fic, and the title dictated the style.
Summary: Bad habits are hard to break.
Fandom: House
Word Count: 807
Rating/Warnings: R
Pairing: House/Cuddy, House/Stacy
A/N: For house_fest.
The full prompt was “I’m not very faithful to the women I date.” – House cheats on Stacy… with Lisa Cuddy.
A note on timelines: This story takes place after House and Stacy moved in together, before the infarction, after Wilson cheated on Bonnie but before their divorce. Not that you couldn't have told from the story, but anyway.
Oy, House timelines. I've never been in a fandom that was more OCD about them, and I royally screwed them up in this fic. In addition to the above, the story also sort of implies that Cuddy was the Dean of Medicine before House's leg, which is almost certainly not true. But screw it.

To the Commentary!
