If you view it from her perspective, all she sees is that;
-She asks her crush out and his body suddenly shuts down in a visibly painful fashion
-She then finds out why it happened, he had a weak heart and she caused the infarction
-If she were to check on him a few months down the line, she'd find he either died (á la Kenji route) or has found love with someone else. Someone else who is also disabled, giving them both a strong link and bond

I'd say that was believable. It's not exactly unicorns and leprechauns :lol:
You're totally skipping over the letter she sends to break things off though.
Then again, you're also skipping over all the times she went to see Hisao at the hospital, either because of her feelings for him or out of guilt, until Hisao's distant attitude drive her away.

Reqtified edition:
-She asks her crush out and his body suddenly shuts down in a visibly painful fashion
-She then finds out why it happened, he had a weak heart and she caused the infarction
-She continues to see him regularly and is the last of Hisao's friends, classmates and other hellspawn to do so
-Each visit Hisao is distant at best, and a cocktail of depression, fear and self-pity at worst.
-She could reasonably believe that Hisao also blames her for his heart condition
-She stops visiting (insert headcanon for reason here, though I'm sure mine is obvious at this point), but Hisao is still on her mind
-She finds out from Hisao's parents that he's transferred to a school for the disabled
-Guiltguiltguiltguiltguiltguilt with a side of depression
-The only closure she gets is in the form of a letter she sends Hisao, one that feasibly she didn't think to write herself, but was more likely urged to by someone else. the letter either gets no response or just a generic one that doesn't convey any feelings one way or another that he might have for her.
-If she were to check in with him later, she would find either he'd died, or he'd found love with someone else.

I don’t believe for one second that anyone would be evil enough to her that she caused it, even if they were thinking it.

High schoolers are dicks. I can totally see a nasty rumor going around the school about the girl who killed a boy by confessing to him. Even more so since Hisao never returns to the school, people outside of his circle of friends are bound to be misinformed.

Being bullied about it I can understand, but it’s not proof, in fact it’s more likely to be a lie. If a doctor or even Hisao said it, that would be finding out, all the high schoolers would do would be to make her doubt herself. Then again I might be reading too much into a bullet point.

My headcannon for Iwanako is that she ends up dating one of Hisao's friends several months down the line after she doesn't get a reply to her letter. She sends the letter as an act of closure before she can move on.

Nah, I doubt anyone would have told her that, but I would imagine she would have come to that conclusion herself and blamed herself for it.

My personal headcanon is that Iwanako was deeply affected by what happened to Hisao. As a resault she began to study psychology and would later become a therapist. She regrets that she sent a letter rather than actually talking to him, feeling she was a coward.

Kids are douchebags, and from what I've seen/heard Japanese high school kids are some of the worst when it comes to bullying/rumors. Trust me, that rumor could very well happen
I write take a look, would you kindly?
I also draw, kind of.

I decided to attack this in another way: I made the day of delivery a very wet one, so he was wearing a trenchcoat and the letter ended up in the pocket. It wasn't until the next time he wore the same trenchcoat that he actually read the letter, by which time it was approaching the implied deadline in the letter for a response. Thus, short on time, he just picked up the phone and called her instead of writing back.

The implied deadline was because she had a scheduled visit to Sendai during summer break. If he didn't meet with her then, she would reasonably assume he wanted nothing to do with her.

To detail things any further would be to spoil much of my plot, but he does make that call, and it's not to say goodbye.

Also in my story, the impetus for writing the letter was Hisao's parents. They really like her and are grateful for what she tried to do, even if it apparently didn't end well.

This is also part of my plot. They're evil to Iwanako, believing Hisao died from his incident. Then she "borrows" him to prove that he's not dead at all, and rather than backing down, they escalate it. He ends up with a broken nose for his troubles.
