Im so sorry for people with OCD like, im fucking sorry nobody tries to understand you, im sorry that your illness gets romantizes in comedies when it steals hours from your day, and it makes you believe weird shit and it makes you be scared to dead and nobody says shit about that part. Im so sorry.
Superhero AU (or if your OTP/OT3+ is already in a superhero world): Person A is badly injured and/or intoxicated and comes to Person B for help while in their hero outfit. B has to remove A’s mask in the process of helping them (and sees their face for the first time). After A has been stabilized, B returns the mask. When A wakes up, they have no memory of last night’s events and don’t remember being unmasked. What B does about this is up to the writer.
Bonus: B recognizes A’s face and realizes that they know A’s civilian persona, and it turns out that A is someone that B has been crushing on for a while. Alternative bonus: B knows who A is, but while B has a crush on the superhero version of A, B thoroughly dislikes (or has a love/hate relationship with) the civilian version of A.

When you have a fever, your nose is stuffed and your headache is
spreading to your toes, your body is telling you to stay home in bed.
Feeling sick is an evolutionary adaptation according to a hypothesis put forward by Prof. Guy Shakhar
of the Weizmann Institute’s Immunology Department and Dr. Keren Shakhar
of the Psychology Department of the College of Management Academic
Studies, in a recent paper published in PLoS Biology.
The symptoms that accompany illness appear to negatively affect one’s
chance of survival and reproduction. So why would this phenomenon
persist? Symptoms, say the scientists, are not an adaptation that works
on the level of the individual. Rather, they suggest, evolution is
functioning on the level of the “selfish gene.” Even though the
individual organism may not survive the illness, isolating itself from
its social environment will reduce the overall rate of infection in the
group. “From the point of view of the individual, this behavior may seem
overly altruistic,” says Dr. Keren Shakhar, “but from the perspective
of the gene, its odds of being passed down are improved.”

Imagine Person A is sick but they don’t seem to know it/are in denial of it. They’re sneezing like crazy, coughing a lot, and keep stumbling when they walk. Person B keeps trying to tell them that they need rest, but Person A keeps insisting that they’re fine. Eventually, Person A actually topples over onto a couch, exhausted, and Person B takes care of them.
