Doctor, Doctor

This challenge has ended!

Lately, doctors have been on my mind. Firstly, visiting them is always a pain, but necessary. Secondly, there are many types of doctors.

Your job is to write a story with a doctor in it. It can be somebody visiting one, or the doctor could be a small role, or even merely discussed. The doctor could be the protagonist, antagonist, or just a memory.

You could go so far as to invent an imaginary disease, an apocalypse, or new drug.

Any form of submission accepted, poetry, prose, and in any genre.

    I entered, slightly off topic as usual. Thanks for the inspiration. I quite like what wound up doing.

    …Ok, I’m about to post one. I know it doesn’t really work but I couldn’t help myself. I’m going to say here and in the piece that I didn’t create the character or the idea……you’ll see what I mean.

    Seems a lot of stories to read, I can’t be bothered; Did anyone else use a pathologist as the doctor?

    Oh man, and I just posted a poem about being a doctor before reading this challenge. Doh! Ah well, perhaps I can come up with something else.

    I’m actually feeling a bit under the weather myself right now. This is the perfect challenge. Now just to think of a more serious story…

    You really love new drugs, don’t you Elsha.
