Not really a spoiler? But I for anyone who's familiar with Greek mythology there's some obvious parallels here, just keep in mind that Colette can't eat the food of Heaven or the Underworld for a reason. I look forward to seeing how this develops. Who knows, it might move in a direction I'm not expecting!

A young doctor is still probably in their mid 30s by the time they finish residency. Somehow I think the shoujo tropes kind of fall apart when you're dealing with a middle-aged woman. This is a point in life when being coy and naive about romance is not attractive. You're suppose to be seriously looking at marriage and kids.

Is she suppose to be Persephone?

@ironclad - dude, residency is a VERY new concept (widespread in the mid-1900s) to apply to a loose historical fiction/fantasy work where the doctors are mostly traveling physicians without hospitals to even “reside” in. i think it’s shown that most doctors, including her, learn via apprenticeship in this setting?

@bugonia Ah but how could a woman learn medicine outside of the modern era? Also you're thinking of apothecaries which were trained via apprenticeship. Doctors went to college and we're basically reserved for scholarly nobles. The idea of a village doctor is an extremely modern concept, and before the 20th century you'd more likely find midwives, barber-surgeons, and if lucky whatever leadpills and snakeoil the apothecary kept in stock.

The entire premise falls on its face. She's Doogie Howser.
