Synesthesia

PG-13
UPDATES REGULARLY!

Synesthesia is about a boy called Dai who has a rare mental condition called synesthesia.

Synesthetes, or persons with synesthesia can smell shapes, taste music, see colors when they read or feel pain, etc. Their senses are "connected".

Unlike most synesthetes, who usually develop artistical talents and therefore enjoy their conditions, Dai loathes it because he gets teased about it. So he decided to get "cured".

NOTES:
*Read in american format.
*Completely sketchy and amateurish pencil art/paneling since this comic is from when I was a young little bug.
*If you can SURVIVE THE FIRST 13 PAGES, you already made through the whole thing.
*This comic is not meant to insult anybody with any condition mentioned here.
*Please read the FAQs. Synesthesia is REAL :)

I might update soon, maybe....!
Fricking awesome comic man!
Too baad its dead T0T
Oh snap.
I remember on two different occasions attempting to describe something, and it went along the lines of "If that smell was a sound, it would feel sharp..." 'Sharp' meaning the appearance of sharpness. I never even thought about that associated with synesthesia.
THEN again, that's the closest thing to synesthesia I've ever had that I can recall. I'd explain more, but I'll just shorten it to "Yellow, eyes, headache, mild".
Actually, I think the planet-headphone thing fits pretty well. It reminds me of that bizarre Synesthesia short film you can find on youtube. That part where the boy plugs his headphones in random foodstuffs to hear music? That's what the planet thing reminded me of.

I'm deaf AND a synesthete! ^^ Deafness isn't all that bad. If you have profound deafness, then yeah... but most, like me, still can hear certain levels of pitch and volume.

Plus I have a minor sound synesthesia that causes me to hear various songs without any noticeable reason, but nobody else can hear those songs.

I noticed there were up to 8 of those "songs" I could hear, which I titled by numbers, First, Second, Third, etc... I plan to make lyrics for each song then attempt to make a 'real' version of the music for others to hear. ^^ So far, I managed to write "The Seventh" down~ I'm trying to work on The Second, although with the stress, it's not coming well. ><

To SilverwyndBlue: wow! that is amazing! what do you mean with persona-type synesthesia, though? Do you associate numbers with persoanlities or do you relate people to smells/tastes/sounds/shapes?
Guest here~

I have persona-type synesthesia, which is EXTRA-rare... including myself, I've only heard of THREE people ever that has that type. D: PLUS I'm male. How rare am I nao?

@ Asj:
I don't watch Code Geass, but I've seen the character. No, their hairstyles are quite different, you'll see.

Debe ser raro descubrir que tienes sinestesia, como que todo lo que pensabas que era comun resulta ser cosa tuya D:

Lol Shiro, that's...that's what most people call pain. Unless the bullets tickle and you go into a giggle-coma. :)

I love the "Pipipi" :D I just like how it looks. :) It reminds me of chicks.

I was re-reading the description for this comic and that "see colors when they read or feel pain" caught my attention. I was like, "I thought everyone saw colors when they felt pain." I guess not, then? lol Oh well.

WTH? Rain? What does rain have to do with it? D:
If i had a kid i'd give them a Jap. name cause it'd sounds cool lol i'd do it to.
They say: "Why is my name Satoshi? I'm not Japanese."
I say: "What? that name is freaking awesome! Love it kid! Love it!" >=D
