[Original Tumblr post X]

I am ridiculously fond of sickfic, so I put a post together on Tumblr and it was ridiculously popular. So here it is here, and I'll make a masterpost where I can fill them all.



99.9% Immunity - (character) never gets sick, right? Wrong.
 

Elephant in the Room -
(character) is sick, but for some reason - rank, personality, etc - no one is talking about it
 

Heroes Don’t Take Sick Days -
there’s no time to rest when you have to save the world, so (character) has to push themselves even when miserable
 

Insult to Injury -
as if being injured wasn’t enough, (character) is getting sick too
 

Ill Timed -
it’s the worst possible time for (character) to be sick, but their body didn’t get the memo
 

Irreplaceable -
(character) is the leader/boss and isn’t able to take personal time off, even when they’re under the weather
 

It’s Nothing -
(character) insists they’re fine, right up until they collapse
 

Medic Down -
every group seems to have a primary caretaker. How do they handle it when (character) is the one sick?
 

Milking It -
if (character) has to be sick, they’re at least going to get as much pampering out of others as they can
 

Not a Word -
(character) said they don’t get sick, and isn’t in the mood for anyone to remind them while they recover
 

No Rest for the Wicked -
the big bad (character) has more to worry about than the good guys
 

Open Secret -
everyone knows (character) is sick, but they’re trying so hard no one has said anything
 

Persuasive Partners -
(character) is sick, and refusing to stay put; their partner(s) give them a good reason to stay in bed
 

Stepping Up -
boss/leader (character) is clearly miserable, so the others go out of their way to take as much of their workload as possible
 

Suffer in Silence -
for whatever reason, (character) doesn’t want anyone to know they’re sick, and does everything they can to hide it
 

Take One Down… -
(character) gets sick, and spreads it to the rest of the group
 

Team Mom/Dad -
(character) is the one to always take care of others on the team
 

The Wolf Cries True -
(character) has been known to exaggerate or even pretend they’re sick, only this time they’re telling the truth

This is Your Fault - (character A) was clingy while they were sick, and now (character B) has it
 

Why Didn’t You Say?
- (character) hasn’t been feeling well, making for some uncharacteristic behavior, and their partner(s)/team/friends are much more understanding once they realize why
