Gaylord was from that story, too, IIRC.

In any case, that's a good point, too, that someone would've seen her being friendly with Miki... but it's still my headcanon that Miki tried something, and she certainly seems to know more details than she's willing to share, as if it'd cast Hanako in a bad light if she shared them (and she's always careful to say that Hanako's a good person).

That's a really weak line of reasoning...

Induction: Natsume/Naomi/(Hanako), Misha/Shizune/(Hisao) etc. That's a canonical basis for consideration, no?

Miki and Suzu are separated by an aisle, which in high school is a pretty wide chasm to overcome :) . The groupings in your scenario would be Miki-Ikuno-Haruhiko and Suzu-Lezard-Molly.
Rin is orthogonal to everything.

Not really. In most Japanese schools, you get to sit to the person next to you for a long time since seating is determined and teacher move between classes--not you. So having someone next to you to keep you entertained (or cheat from) from subject to subject is welcomed. Seats are changed usually during new semesters.

Speaking of Miki and others...

Actually... think a head canon topic should be a thing? I feel like that's too big for this.

My head canon expanded until it exploded. So I wrote down as much as I could in the fanfic section. :)

Meanwhile, in other news, I decided to replay KS. Two rules: 1) Lilly neutral ending is true and the rest are shadows (no, that's not expressing a personal preference, but it's an experiment to see how it feels); 2) deliberately remember certain things while playing through (e.g. in Shizune's route, remember Misha's internal conflict). Owwww...

Head Canon; that's an interesting choice! Way to get people talking if I do say so myself. In short I think: a) Saki is a bitch, b)All OCs who have a good base, reason, and reasonable interaction with people-are real, c) Suzu and Miki are friends, d) Rika is a live wild/die hard kind of person, d) Brythain's Kenji's family is real(I can never see him the same way again, then again the entire cast has been altered in my eyes :lol: ).

This and the bit about Rin coming from a Korean family living in Tsushima are my two favorite bits of Brythain headcanon.
I like all the girls in KS, but empathize with Hanako the most.

I always thought it was a case of opposites, like the main girls. Hanako is scarred, Lilly is blind. Emi has no legs, Rin has no arms. Shizune is mute, Misha needs to learn to control her volume. Miki is energetic, Suzu is always tired. When I started Blossom, I was trying to figure out who might be a better partner than Suzu, and the next best thing was Takashi, because Miki has a positive outlook and Takashi hates everything because of his tinnitus.

That's actually a pretty valid point... I've never looked at it like that before:P

Really? He hates everything? Where did you find that? I don't remember it from the game, unless I overlooked it; which could be a very real possibility :/

Takashi is another one of these tertiary characters that has nothing canonical about them apart from that shot of them in 3-2 and what their condition is. You don't actually hear about him at all in the VN, if I'm not mistaken.

General idea is, though, that he has a very short temper due to his Tinnitus. Having tinnitus myself, albeit not bad enough to warrant any special measures, I can see where it came from. It can be pretty damn annoying.

Considering it's the reason he's at Yamaku, it must be pretty bad :P
