This is one of my tiny sidesteps into a fandom. I loved the show and watched quite a bit of it, but I’ve only written a few things for the ‘verse. Mostly because I am nowhere near a medical professional, so it’s a ‘verse that requires more research than I’m normally willing to do. (For lo, I am a lazy writer!)
I was quite fond of the first few seasons, but it started to get to dark and repetitive towards the end. I gave up around season five.
