ALL PLAGUE DOCTOR, ALL THE TIME
"A plague doctor (Italian: physici epidemeie, Dutch: pestmeester, German: Pestarzt), was a special medical physician who saw those who had the bubonic plague. They were specifically hired by towns that had many plague victims in times of plague epidemics. Since the city was paying their salary they treated everyone, the rich and the poor. They were not normally professionally trained experienced physicians or surgeons, and often were second-rate doctors not able to otherwise run a successful medical business or young physicians trying to establish themselves." --Wikipedia
This has been sitting here pretty much finished for well over a month now … I don’t really remember what inspired it, but I think it may have been Sol’s idea … we just liked the imagery of a lolita-style plague doctor.
