Just because you didn't collapse at once and have the After-Action Healing Drama
, or even the After-Action Patch-Up
doesn't mean that the wound isn't the Wound That Will Not Heal
, or won't kill you in the end. Sickness can last a long time, too, and still end up fatal.
But with these scene, you can get the Magic Antidote
, or have someone lay on the Healing Hands
, and recover.
This can be, but does not have to be, time critical; you could linger for weeks if you didn't get it, or die within minute because you are having a crisis. Either way, however, it is a scene of high drama because of your recovery. If it is not unnaturally swift, you will still give unmistakable signs of improvement, if only falling into a more natural sleep.
