Sherlock Holmes here.. It does not take rocket science to figure out Emi's issues - well, not all of them. Asking her mom would be the best approach - although i'd have to keep the MILF orientation under check...
Oh, and the shed scene.. One does not simply lemonlube into Mordor. 'Nuff said.
Oh, dayum... Defeat is NOT in my vocabulary. Sure, she may be deaf and mute, but when it comes to competition, I will have no mercy even if it is only a game. Winning is everything that losing is not. Risk, chess, jyanken/rockpapersciz, bring it on. I would probably introduce her to C&C Generals Zero Hour, because it's the BEST. RTS. GAME. EVER.
And then win round after round after round. Her teaming up with Misha would not even matter.
Dealing with Misha - i'm a monogamous guy in general, but hey, who does not want a mutually assured threesome? Heck, if i really was aiming for Misha instead of Shizune, i'd carve myself a Misha route through all that.
Me comforting her will probably not involve sex at all if i was already into Shizune, anyway. It would probably end up with me turning into Courageous Advice Wolf and setting things straight between them.
I will play along with the entire thing but I will (jokingly) keep calling him either Pico, Chico or Coco.. or if he can act the part, Nell.(<<And hand him a golf clubset.)
Dealing with that immature Unwarranted Self-Importance-infected V8(? nah..) motormouth that calls itself Jigoro:
# (wut, i has handicap [arrythmia]? dis sux..)
It would highly likely end up as a massive verbal nuclear exchange. One thing is for sure - he will have no chance of winning. Take it from a bluerope Drill Sergeant.
# (the normal me)
Duke Nukem vs Battlelord. And the final blow/s? Yes, it will be right in the jewels.
Well, whatever. Either way i'd put him to shame and own him so hard, Shizune might not let me go for more than five minutes. >:3 Rrrrrrrawr.
I might not be an art decoder, but i can relate so much to her. Asperger's is never a bad thing unless you make it so.
I might not be able to understand her art, but i'd go though all the effort necessary to understand what she is trying to say.
I might not be an artist, but i'd try my hand at abstract work - and then, with those, demonstrate to Rin that, although one can express themselves with art, one must not expect others to understand it though just that. We'd probably end up explaining to each other why we drew / painted it like this and that, etc.
I might not be a teacher, but it's not like i can't gently show her how to express herself with words. It might take a lot of time and a lot of effort, but if that is what it takes, and only if she wants it, it will be done.
I might not be a tool, but Nomiya sure feels like one. For all that i have read bout what he has done - not for her talent, but for Rin herself - i can't find one hint of him caring for the well-being of his student. Heck, he doesn't even stop to worry if she's been eating properly or if that attic is livable enough for her - or at least has no mosquitoes.
I might never have been a druggie, but if she can let herself loose with codeine, just once, i'd probably allow it - and join her too.
I might not have lived long enough to experience everything in this world, but i can show Rin the joys of realizing the meaning of life, the meaning of existing, and all the Pro perks that come attached with it - and of course, how to deal with the troubles of it. (Well, maybe except akimbo or dual-wielding stuff , but, well..yeah.)
I might not succeed, but you just lost the game.
I might not be able to really emphasize this, but I really liked Rin's route for her uniquneness as a character.
*goes off to play Katawa Kart 5: Airport Dash!*
*Now with ponies, Need4Speed cars, or AC's superfighter jets. Don't ask me what i'd do if i had ADMMs.
All kidding aside, i'd probably hang out with her a lot more, and tell her what i feel for her sooner.
If she asked me that question in the bathroom, i'd probably reply with a cheesy line like..
"Who wouldn't think that when he has the beautiful girl that he loves in front of him?"
Hell, I love cheese.
