Seoulchan's Prize comic p5 by PlanetSeasoning Seoulchan's Prize comic p5 by PlanetSeasoning
Ok, Science Lesson!
Otosclerosis is a condition where there is a calcium build-up on the small bones in your middle ears. It does not (usually) cause a person to go completely deaf, but it can cause Tinnitus.
Tinnitus is a Phantom ringing, buzzing, etc. which can be constant or come and go. In some cases it can worsen in the absence of external sounds.
ok stay with me, don't fall asleep. With hearing loss, it is usually the high pitches which go first. In this case the girl has constant tinnitus, and the pitch that she hears can overwhelm some of the higher pitches. which is why she has trouble hearing them.

So! I am hypothesizing that the Music Meister uses a type of Overtone singing (look this up on your own =P ), to produce the pleasant audible note, and an inaudible pitch which somehow has a hypnotic effect.

and with the girl's condition, the inaudible pitch does not affect her.

Phew!

ok and yes! that is Harley Quinn, and yes! Harley Quinn did, as a matter of fact, go to college. (you can look it up :) )

I would say the internet is the best place to look really! However, I am pleased you took a bit of interest in a medical condition that is not talked about much. PS I have epilepsy, but it is a while since my last seizure, so if you know anybody who has that (note people don't "suffer" from epilepsy, either you "have" it or you don't) I think they would be pleased if you read up about that, and not come out with anything stupid.

Thanks! My mom is actually a nurse and while talking the other day she mentioned the condition to me. I researched it on my own and really hope my understanding of it is correct.
But yea, thanks again!

And the secret is revealed!

Thanks for putting a scientific name to what I hypotesized. And I agree, (after looking up the definitions) I agree that MM would be using Overtone singing with his pleasant audible tone and the inaudible tone that is too high to hear. So basically, she can hear his normal, pleasant voice, just not the inaudible overtone that controls the mind of others. I now feel both educated AND entertained! :)

XD Harley Quinn is her roomie! lolz Does it say Mr. J on her shirt??? *high five*

Morrreeeee pleeeeeease!

like maybe 2 more pages... but we'll see if composition doesn't press me to extend it a bit more

D: gasp! only 2 more pages! I may make an extension to said comic, depending on a) time and b) if others want to see more of this pairing. Thank you so much for going above and beyond the amount of pages needed for my prize :) :hug: I'm having fun reading this comic and its actually my first in terms of coming up with an OC to be paired with another established character.

=D no problem! it was an interesting idea and i just ran with it haha.
You should totally continue it! I would love to read it XD
I might have gone on a bit longer if it wasn't that i should to get back to the Afterward comics :) (the current panel I've been working on looks really cool )
it's been really refreshing to work on a comic and just be concerned with the character drawings (not spending all that time on backgrounds and coloring)
not to mention having some more practice drawing women

Actually, nothing would cause a person to go "completely deaf" - as per somebody I know who is studying to be an audiologist and who wears hearing aids. But tinnitus is not a nice thing to have.
