Is it too unlikely to say that you can't speak a language, but you can understand it?

Not really, I myself can't speak English to be honest, but I can hear English conversation and understand it well.

Possible.

I have a friend from Sweden who barely speaks German but understands it pretty well.

@ Senpai and Stratos - Alright, that makes things easier since I can just say Ichika understands english to a limited degree. This'll make the bomb defusal scene less tedious to write.

@ Senpai - How long does onw usually take to undertsand a language without learning it formally? Like a guy bwing able to understand french to a certain degree after spending time in France.

Side note - Don't speak english? What are you typing right now? I'd call that english.

Well typing and pronouncing english words are two different things, man.

I'm pretty sure his case is the latter since he did mention "speak" in his post.

Well, I do bold the speak part (as Stratos said), I can write like this and understand convo but really, can't speak it myself. XD

I think few months will do.

Huh? It probably isn't that hard to read out the words you type. Any guy can speak Japanese if he's reading from a script.

Side note - Is sleepiness ever an effect of drug abuse?

I can read too, to be honest, but verbal conversation are way more complex than you think. I speak like this because English is third language in my place, meaning that it's usage is next to nothing (only used sometimes in school).

Depending on which drug are you talking about.

English is practically overtaking my native language. Almost everybody here mixes in english words to the natural language nowadays.

Side note - Do sleeping pills have any negative effects?

@ Eras

Well, the first would be addiction, then breakdown, and then sudden death.

@ SintX

if only the canon villains as strong as that, i would be happy.

@ Senpai - Plan to start the switch fic soon. When are you free?

EDIT: Sleeping pills are worse than painkillers? Man, that's effed up.

@ Saint X - Not good at tech, but you better hope that you can find a way to beat that thing without making it look like an asspull. Looks way too strong.

Let me describe a morning here in the Philippines.

"Pare, sabog na 'ko..." Alright, maybe not like that but basically the sun is so damn bright, there's a high chance that you won't have water, and it will most likely be filled with road sounds.

If you're in a place like Cavite then you can expect everything that I just wrote down to happen regularly.

@ Eras

Yes, hence why using sleeping pills is deemed unecessary unless the sleeping problem is extremely grave.

Also, even if I'm free, I'll have to prioritize Sacred Twins and other fic related stuff. And that's assuming I'm free in the next MONTH (yes). At best I can only gave short commentaries or advice.

That's all I need, actually I don't expect you to write or proof-read the works for grammar errors. Just do the same thing like when I ask you for help in Shadow

Side note - Is there any drug at all you have no possible way of ODing from?

No such thing man, no drugs are free of side effect from ODing. I once has hepatomegali (liver inflation) from overboard intake of Vitamin A

What about canabis? Some people smoke it like a chimney, but they just get high and have no permanent disabilities.

The Boss has been designed with my particular verse in mind. And it's a good thing that I decided to toss this along another tangent while Ichika and co. are out fighting PT on another.

If this said Boss does appear on the Canonical Side, it would only mean BAD END for them.

@ Senpai - At some point the human body begins to rely on the drug so much that it needs to keep consuming it to keep functioning. Once you've reached this stage, is it too late?
