Sweet! Now its okay to start pairing her up with other girls around the school. :)

But *sigh* I know personally how much it sucks to be desperately in love with your best friend. Poor Misha.
In love with your best friend of the same sex. That is another can of worms.

Added that Lilly was Catholic because why not. Also did some general editing.

Seems to fit her personality. Being a good Scottish girl and all. :)

I don´t remember, is Scotland more Catholic or Protestant?

Scotland is more Catholic, I believe. The Irish and Scots are traditionally the Catholics.

Actually, while it's true that Ireland and Scotland are traditionally Catholic, and Ireland remains overwhelmingly Catholic, Scotland largely converted to Protestantism in the mid 1500s and is about 40% Protestant now versus about 15-20% Catholic. I know this from reading a bit about the British civil war (in the 1600s), which really was touched off in Scotland as a rebellion against Popery (Catholisism).

Also, it's a bit funny that Lilly is Catholic, since it's most common among the Highlanders (rural folks). Lilly's about as unHighlander as you can get. However, there is still a fairly prominent Catholic minority scattered around Scotland, especially, aparently, in Glasgow, which would thus be the most likely individual place for where Lilly's mother was from.

Point taken. Read a bit on John Knox and the Scottish Reformation. Interesting stuff.

I would think that it is difficult to raise a dog while living at the dorms. Guide dogs are usually quite large in size, and space is limited.

Also, having a dog will not add much to the story but will mean some work to draw it.

Make sense but Yamaku seems to be a school that would approve/help with such things, is it still canon that she has that dog? Or was that removed?

It's no longer canon. She uses the cane to find her way.

And she has Hanako so I guess it makes sense.
