Saffic in House MD
Years ago at Redemption I was on a panel about "How come there isn't more f/f slash in slash fandom"? (Or at least, that's what the panel turned into. I can't remember at this distance in time if that was anything close to the original topic.)
Someone on the panel (might even have been me) talked about how even in series where there are two or more characters and they talk to each other and have their own relationship, etc, they never seem to be depicted with the same kind of emotional intensity we see on onscreen m/m relationships.
Someone from the audience asked the panel "Okay, if that's why, what f/f relationships on TV/in fiction can you see as having that kind of emotional intensity?"
And I said, when it was my turn to answer, having had time to think about it: "Cuddy and Stacy".
They clearly know, like, and talk to each other, independently of the relationship each of them has with House.
But, as I realised when thinking it over afterwards, one reason why I could not see myself writing the story is: none of the scenes marching into my mind were passing the Bechdel test. They kept talking to each other. But always, always House came up.
What else might Stacy Warner and Lisa Cuddy talk to each other about besides Greg House?
