[ i’ve thought about this matter before, but it hit me again so why not talk about it while it’s still fresh in my memory.
so basically, they have confirmed that shinjiro dresses the way he does because he cannot regulate his body temperature as a side effect from the suppressants. in a way, as silly as it sounds, he now works somewhat like a reptile. he has to dress up super warm in order to keep up the 36-37 C (97-100 F) temperature that a human body normally utilizes. reptiles do the same, they literally lie in the desert sun to warm up their bodies, then go to a slightly colder place to cool down. or if you own one you have to have a terrarium that’s warm enough for them. if exposed to cold temperatures for too long, they get hypothermia and die. that’s the gist of it.
so it would be essentially the same for shinjiro, no? like, the whole body temp problem is tragic in itself and troublesome but the fact that getting exposed to coldness for too long could actually kill the guy??? i mean, anyone would die from that eventually but for him it is so much easier and much less extreme coldness required. and i thought he couldn’t get more tragic.
i actually think it’s more than likely not possible that he is 100% unable to in any way regulate his body temperature. perhaps insufficiently, yes. i mean, obviously. but if he was absolutely unable to do so i don’t think he’d survive. 36-37 C is a hell of a warm temperature to keep up at all times. he spends most of his time outdoors. there’s just no way a coat and a beanie with some layers of clothes can cut it. still, the fact that being exposed to cold is actually super Dangerous to shinjiro just breaks my heart like. there is so much going on already. when you just mention that he’s “unable to regulate his body temperature” it doesn’t sound super severe but when you think about it more and how it’s absolutely necessary for him to dress like that… that’s just bad. and sad. and terrible ]
Joyce, this is Hawkins, okay? You wanna know the worst thing that’s ever happened here in the four years I’ve been working here? Do you wanna know the worst thing? It was when an owl attacked Eleanor Gillespie’s head because it thought that her hair was a nest.
