//rises from the dead// DID SOMEONE SAY NURSE PAUL AU
scrapped this together v late at night, v late, and i had a nosebleed this morning too //i wonder why!!!!!!// but here are my two cents on this magnificent idea and yall can… shoot me probably lmfao
im never gonna write this myself btw bc i wont be able to do it justice, so the idea is up for grabs if anyone wants it B))
moved by the death of his mother to cancer, Paul decides to follow in her footsteps and take up medicine studies, and he ends up working at a small hospital facility in London. his first few months are okay, but he’s the only male nurse there and ??? both patients and coworkers alike always have to rub it in and he’s not doing so well i guess. the only people he can be comfortable around are George //he comes and delivers cards and flowers n shit to patients often; he also works across the street so they’re pretty close// and Ringo //a regular patient; he gets sick often but he’s always rlly nice and sweet//.
it doesn’t get better when one day, a rowdy patient named John comes in to have some finger blisters treated //too much guitar playing, probably// and bursts into laughter at the mere sight of Paul. and it certainly doesn’t help when John tries to hit on him before he leaves.
Paul hopes that’s the end of it but!! John!!! keeps!!! coming!!! back!!! and he’s literally never serious about it, going as far as to one day “complain” of a “swollen penis”, followed by a quaint request for Paul to “examine” it. //that’s our Johnny, eh?// he’s really quite a troublemaker, but he doesn’t leave Paul alone for shit and Paul hates it. he keeps trying to get one of the other nurses to deal with him., to no avail—but soon enough he starts finding that bastard kind of…. endearing. //WHAT!!!??!//
he’s pretty funny after all, and makes what would otherwise be a pretty sad job kinda fun and something to look forward to. soon enough they’re hanging out outside of work, listening to the sweetest new records and having a blast and oh they’re crushin’ for each other now okkkkkkkkkkkkkkkk
then one day, John comes into the hospital and is joking and laughing as usual but he’s also looking kinda pained and aching, quickly revealing the cause to Paul as some swelling on his chest
which immediately makes Paul’s blood run cold
his mother also had those
before she died.
