In the beginning it had been John Smith. Then there was ‘the other one’ and ‘E.R. John Smith’ and ‘John Smith the Third’ and ‘John Smith With The Hair’. And, eventually, they just became numbers. Only Nine , Ten, and Eleven are still around; Morgana rather hopes the days of numbers are behind them. Nobody wants to go to a hospital and be seen by lucky doctor number thirteen.
Besides which, it’s completely unprofessional.*
Truth be told, most of the hospital’s drama comes from them; a love of flirting must come with that cursed name. But that’s all right. Morgana and Kate simply keep silent record of their transgressions for future use, when Morgana can replace Uther’s staff with her own.
Everyone’s surprised when Molly Hooper and John Smith (known better as ‘Nine’ around the hospital) begin spending more time together. Everyone except the neurosurgeons Sherlock Holmes and James Moriarty. Sherlock claims to have known by the way Molly’s doing her hair and Nine’s gait, and Jim just keeps his knowledge to himself. Morgana’s not the only one with spies, after all.
