Go To

Nurse Jet is a Ready Jet Go! One-Shot Fic, written by NoonboryKedabory and published on FanFiction.Net on August 18th, 2019.

Intended to be a rewrite of the episode "Sean Has a Cold", this fic has Jet looking after a sickly Sean.

On August 22nd, 2019, a sequel titled Patient Name: Propulsion was published.

Both of these fanfics include examples of:

  • Sick Episode: Both of them, for Sean (Nurse Jet) and Jet (Patient Name: Propulsion).

Tropes exclusive to Nurse Jet:

  • Call-Back:
    • Jet is jumpy about Sean's sneezing after the events of "Endless Summer".
    • The rutabaga-garlic cookies from "Satellite Selfie" are referenced.
  • Catch Your Death of Cold: Zigzagged. Sean is seen sniffling the night before, but isn't fully sick until sleeping with the window open on a rainy night.
  • Here We Go Again!: How this story ends; Sean is good as new, but now Jet has a cold.
  • Literal-Minded: Jet doesn't exactly understand the term "under the weather", since technically, everyone is under the weather at all times.
  • Mondegreen Gag: "Dress you!"
  • Sickness Equals Redness: Sean's nose is said to have gone pink while he is sick.
  • Soup Is Medicine: Jet makes chicken soup for Sean.


Tropes exclusive to Patient Name: Propulsion:

  • Bizarre Alien Biology: Jet's cold makes him literally cold, which Sean speculates is because of the differences between humans and Bortronians.
  • Break the Cutie: Jet, being the innocent soul he is, is completely devastated while he is sick, believing that Earth is punishing him for something.
  • Caretaker Reversal: Sean, who is ill in the first story, now has to look after Jet, who looked after him in the first story.
  • Drama Queen: Jet is even more dramatic while sick.
  • Immediate Sequel: This story takes place two seconds after the conclusion of Nurse Jet.
  • Running Gag: Jet hitting his head on things.
  • Sneeze of Doom: Jet's sneezes send him flying and hitting his head on everything.
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: Lampshaded; Jet brings up that he doesn't know where Sunspot disappeared to, and Sunspot is never mentioned again from that point on.

Alternative Title(s): Patient Name Propulsion
