Have tried searching every possible variation of 'moving' 'patients' and 'UK hospitals', but all I get are adverts for porters' jobs and news stories about putting up cancer patients in hotels.
Setting: present-day UK.
I'm posing as a hospital porter in order to smuggle a patient out of a psychiatric ward. What kind of paperwork and/or excuses do I need in order to move them? Are there are any particular tests I can claim I'm taking a periodically hysterical, often-hallucinating patient for?
Setting: Contemporary U.S. / Middle East; specifically Marine Corps
I'm asking for a friend -- they assure me they've searched extensively through hits for outreach to veterans and serving military, etc, and their f-list is not varied. How often can a military wife communicate with her husband? ...in a combat zone, or a hot spot like say Baghdad? ...currently? ...2-3 years ago? ...13-15 years ago?
Scenario: New York, 1970s. Dad, grandparents and kids are walking down the street. Toddler makes a break for it, Granny manages to snag him by his collar three seconds before he gets flattened by a taxi. What's she likely to say, or pray? I think from canon they're either Conservative or Orthodox.
I Googled for Jewish prayers, but what I got was more formal/organised than what I had in mind.
I've got an interracial couple, Catherine and Malachi. They live in an AU steampunk sort of world, but the legal system is a combination of US and UK law, with a few odds and ends kicked in.
My problem is this--interracial marriage is a hot topic at this point in the history of this world. If the place where thy lived passed a law allowing interracial marriage, and they tra-la-la'ed over to a courthouse and got married, without falsifying any information or fraud of any type, if/when the law allowing interracial marriage was repealed--would their marriage stand, or would it be invalidated, even though it was made in all good faith?
googled: interracial marriage laws, marriages invalidated, legal annulments and got nada.
