Friendship comes and goes alongside the passage of time, but sometimes, the bonds between certain people are stronger than normal. Stephen Strange and Rachael Barrow grew up together, their bond wavering, but never breaking. Together, they've pushed through the trials of their lives and overcame countless obstacles. 

Their dreams, however, were far from similar. Rachael made a career out of her passion for acting and became one of the most well-known actresses in Broadway, while Stephen spent the majority of his thirty-three years of life learning to become a neurosurgeon, one of the best in the world. Though his success made him arrogant and haughty, the only person who he doesn't wave his success over is Rachael. 

But, one fateful night, Rachael and Stephen's bond of trust gets tested once more, pushed to its breaking point. Stephen's been in a car accident, and the nerves in his hands have been damaged to the extent where he can no longer hold a pen without shaking, making it impossible for him to operate as a neurosurgeon anymore. Eventually, Stephen started using alcohol to cope with his denial. Yet, that wasn't enough. Perhaps the East has a cure, a so-called 'Ancient One' to mend his nerves and let him operate once again.

And so, he fled, so desperate that Rachael never even crossed his mind, not when he packed, not when he got on the plane. She didn't even know that he was leaving in the first place.

Am I the only one picturing young Strange as the same curly headed boy as young Sherlock?

Uh you do know the original doctor strange was born in the 1930's not the 2000's so computers weren't invented
