Doris Egan Talks: BlogCritics Interview  
Chase/Cameron excerpt from Barbara Barnett's interview with Doris Egan:

Cameron and Chase’s glitchy wedding plans also weave through this theme. Egan explained, “Cameron's self-deception was pretty obvious. Believing that she wanted to hang onto the sperm as an insurance policy fit her image of herself as a reasonable person; it's reasonable, as she points out, to prepare for the worst, even if you don't expect it. Hanging onto the only thing left of your husband because you simply can't bear to let go is far less reasonable, though perhaps more understandable.”

Egan added, “This is entirely my own take, but I also think Chase's initial feelings about Cameron wanting to keep the sperm were colored by his internal narration. We've seen Chase grow into a confident doctor and a confident person, at ease with himself and his relationships. He graduated from ‘House’ school, he wooed and won the woman of his choice. But internally, he still has some old storytelling about himself that he hasn't entirely shaken off. Chase fears he's Cameron's second choice. He knows she had a thing for House; he knows she was married before; where does he come into this? The guy who's available because the other two aren't? And now she chooses to keep the sperm of a dead guy, over choosing marriage with him? What does that say?” Until Chase could step back and look at the problem from “right-brain insight,” she said, “he took her story at face value, and assumed she lacked confidence in their marriage.”

The entire interview is very good, very insightful. She also (adorably) says that she really enjoys writing Chase now, because he's grown up so much over the past couple years and become the awesome character we all know and love :)

I love her her even more after reading about this. She gets them! That makes me happy.

Also the fact that she mentioned Chase after Wilson for characters she enjoys writing for makes me even more happy ♥
