(A.K.A., Junia sees stuff at the DMV and is bored so gets inspired)….
So, we all know that the force flows through all living things, and that anyone with enough midichlorians can use the force.
What about people/aliens/humanoids with mental disabilities? Specifically, Down syndrome. I’m sure that has to exist in the galaxy.. Down syndrome Jedi, Autistic Jedi, and more.
I suppose this is a bit of a play on PJO how certain “weaknesses” actually are strengths with the help of the force; Percy’s ADHD helps in battle, etc. How blind people see the world through their ears and therefore have the best sense of hearing and can tell people’s footsteps apart. How many deaf people can read lips and have eye sight as sharp as that of an eagle.
Now imagine those abilities, enhanced. I don’t know, maybe this is far fetched but I really would love to see this side of the SW universe. Not everyone is official “perfect”, heck, Anakin and Luke are both missing a limb. However even with disabilities, people continue to function in this world that isn’t made (as of yet) for those who are different; whether to a slight degree or to a much greater one.
ALSO can we get racial diversity up in here as well? Because seriously. Not everyone who has a physical/mental/neurological disability is white :/
(I was kind of inspired because while waiting for an entire for my license at the DMV I have the pleasure of meeting a young black man with Down syndrome. My first time meeting a POC with a disability, and it gave me this idea).
