Author: Hyuuga Natsu 日向夏
Illustrator: Shino Touko しのとうこ
Webnovel: Syosetsu
TL: Shikka
Thanks to a dude from a thread:

Quote:
In the imperial court, a young woman is put into servitude, Maomao. The tale is just beginning for the woman doctor/pharmacist from the red-light district, as rumors circulate about the emperor's children's lives being short-lived. Her curious nature and thirst for knowledge pushes her to action. To satisfy her curiosity, this young doctor/pharmacist will investigate the origin! What is shifting in the imperial court..!?
Spoiler for FAQ:


Hurray for medicine and court!

Seems like an interesting read. Sad that there's no translation. Perhaps someone can take a go.

Like that Korean Drama about female physician

The problem with the design is she's not ugly, just a bishoujo design with freckles added

I think I've heard about this before, or a similar story. Does she get a disciple and is it already finished as a WN?

edit: Looks like it's not finished yet. I think the one I'm thinking of was a manga or something, maybe a manhua. And maybe she wasn't even a doctor, but an office worker when that was really uncommon at the time.

This seems like a better synopsis by Shikka:
Quote:
When she went out to gather medicinal herbs, she was met with hunters of court ladies for the inner palace.

Because of that, Maomao who worked as a pharmacist at the prostitution quarter, is now a maid who works in a refined place. While bearing the displeasure of the current situation, she thought she could work quietly until her service ended, but her curiosity and knowledge won’t allow that.

With her solving of an unexpected incident, she caught the eyes of the emperor’s beloved consort and a eunuch.

Even today, Maomao who wants to quickly return to town, sighs with a laundry basket in one hand.

Question, what is the point of using an aphrodisiac on a eunuch?

I've been following the WN translations for this quite closely. It's a nice read and feels quite fresh.

Going to tackle this one soon, commenting on this one to move this to the top so that more members get interested to read it. Read 10 chapters for now and its pretty interesting for me.
