npkedit: Fic: Mind over Matter

Hopefully this will work. As it's one giant fic, I posted it in pieces on my own LJ, but links are listed below (I hope--LJ and I have been failing to communicate all night).

Thanks also go to simmysim for launching the whole Chase ficathon in the first place (hope your computer gets better soon!)

Mind Over Matter
By: Npkedit
Beta: Minisinoo
Rating: A slight bit of profanity, but not much else.
Fandom: House MD/X-Men
Word Count: 18,335
Pairings: None
Warnings: Story contains spoilers up to "No Reason" in House and for the first two X-Men films, especially X-Men 2.
Summary: The mutant telepathic attack on the world's population in X-Men: United has some unusual repercussions at Princeton-Plainsboro.

Author Notes: I took prompt 94 (AU: Chase wakes up with magical powers. And no, he can't suddenly heal- that would be cheating). The subject of the prompt was magic, but in order to give the piece as much of a sense of realism as I could in this sort of medium (coupled with the fact that I've been an X-Men fan since I was a child), I couldn't resist altering it a bit. So apologies if it's not exactly what you wanted.

Yes, this is a crossover. I've tried very hard to make sure that even those with no knowledge of the X-Men can make heads and tails out of it. If I failed, mea culpa. Truth be told the ratio of X-Men to House tilts decidedly in the latter's favor.

A few caveats: As this was written between the second and third seasons of House and I had no clue what TPTB would do with House post-shooting, this fic presumes that "No Reason" didn't happen. And because the word "loathe" would not be too strong to sum up my reaction to what TPTB did to the X-men in that travesty of a third film, X-3 never happened either.

Finally, thanks and much licorice (Danish!) to my brilliant editor, Minisinoo (who finally got to return the favor); to Mara, for the X-advice; my brother, for the proof; and to Rychki for making sure I didn't screw up all things Aussie.

Disclaimer: Alas, none of the characters are mine. I'm just temporarily playing in PPTH's and the X-Men's playground. All medical errors (and hopefully there are none) are my own. 

Feedback, as always, is relished.

I really like this fic. Its not a xover I would have thought of, but you wrote it so well that it works. I hope you plan on doing a sequal (hint hint) :)
