Remember that(or at least, that was my intention) if she has Hisao's disability, she is no longer deaf/mute.

But then the need for humour is null!

Unless... Oh god, unless...

Now that Hisao is deafmute, and Misha still needs a job...

This is brilliant. No wait, it would be really annoying and disturbing. :shock:
You'd have to wake up every morning to the feeling of Misha tapping you with her finger or something. At least you won't hear her laughing as she does that.

Emi with Aplastic Anemia
Would the reduced red blood cell count and lethargy affect Emi's genki attitude?

Shizune with Huntington's Disease
Would Shizune be more or less driven to be the best when she's constantly told that after she hits 35 her brain will degenerate? Would she be depressed or treat it as another challenge?

Lilly with Asperger's Syndrome
How would Lilly act if instead of being well cultured and sociable she would be awkward and antisocial?

Rin with Motor Neuron disease
I can actually imagine this one. Because she isn't dexterous enough to create art she would probably bring her head in the clouds personality into something like science.

Emi would probably take something more sedate, possibly art. She'd be Rin, only with arms and a geniuine buzzkill to her.

Shizune'd probably be the aiming, just aiming for the medical profession rather than any goals she has today.

Lilly'd be roughly the same, only more robotic in her mannerisms, and perhaps a little too prying as to her questions on Hisao's condition.

Rin would sing. She strikes me as the sort.

Lilly with Asperger's? What about Hanako? Antisocial tendencies taken up to 11.

Rin with no legs would probably walk around using her arms.

Assuming she didn't have prosthetics like emi.

I can see Rin walking around on her arms even if she -did- have prosthetic legs available >_>

Word. She has to keep that flexible charm that is so essential to her personalisation.

I once met a woman, a French athlete who lost both her legs in a freakish train accident when she was young. She walked around on her hands. It was, well... pretty amazing, I have no other words to describe it. Such flexibility, such speed, such fluidity of motion. It was strange and quite frightening, but it also had a sort of alien beauty to it.
A bit like a girl drawing with her feet.

I once knew a deaf girl, myself. Strangest thing was, when we weren't talking via notepads (Or, more rather, computers, given my shit handwriting), we just communicated through our expressions and body language. Apparently I was the first to do it at her level.

awesome. Wish I had your interpersonal intelligence(or whatever they call that ability to understand people). When I tried dating a deaf girl, we had to end it very very quickly because I simply couldn't bear speaking to her through a human translator. You have no idea how disturbing that is. We still converse on Messenger once in a while, though.

EDIT: back to the subject of the thread, then: what say you about a replacement of Lilly and Shizune's disabilities? As in a deaf Lilly and a blind Shizune. Think the relationship would be the same?

Oh, it was really just because I'm an extrovert, and expressive. It helps that I know how to mimic.

No. The difficulties people face shape their personalities. Lilly is probably sedate because being blind doesn't really mesh with moving too fast, whie Shizune's got the Beethoven excuse of not hearing distractions (Or objections) when she's working.

I wonder if Misha would still by hyperactive and happy even if she lost her legs and arms. I could see her running around on four stubs and biting someone's ankle on Shizune's command, though.
