    1. LOL!
      My brain might be blank after this challenge.

  1. Perfect! A character in a big city with clinics and major hospitals will have such a different take on illness than one in a small town with only veterinarian. Great X word!

    1. My assistant and I just had this conversation last week. She was reading/ editing a fantasy for someone, and one of the characters was “sick” (pregnant, but doesn’t know it). And she remarked that it was odd on an island full of magic and healers that no one was freaking out that someone suddenly had an incurable illness. They were looking into treating her, yes. But no one was freaking out with worry about it being contagious or anything. We were discussing if that felt realistic, the calm response of, “hmm, well, I’ll just consult someone else, while you go back to school and interact with other children who have never been sick.” On one hand, perhaps it would be, because healers wouldn’t think about spreading. On the other hand, if they already can’t treat one, why would they want to risk being unable to treat 2, or 6, or… well, we all know how an epidemic works in real life.

    Interesting thought and a good use of X.

    That first meme photo is hilarious! Great advice about evaluating medicinal practices for a story–especially relevant in historical fiction.
