Re: Stressed Wasps - Why did Shion not die?

If Shion was infected that early - say with a vaccination for a supposedly new virus where they put eggs in the serum for certain people with different backgrounds, ages, sexes and so on - it would also explain why Shion is so surprised and overwhelmed by his emotions as soon as he got rid of the wasp. It may not necessarily be Nezumi who brought out all this though I'd say Shion jumps to this conclusion because Nezumi takes a huge part in making him feel his emotions which were inhibited by the wasp egg for such a long time.
He obviously doesn't have any experience with himself considering his own feelings. Not a surprise if he wasn't really able to get riled up from a very young age; might as well explain why he looses control so easily. If you don't have any child experiences with anger management, I imagine it's hard to come up with a way to deal with strong emotions.

Well, that's easy. How would the parasite be able to control emotions? Control of the hormonal system. That can happen from anywhere. You just need to have access to the blood circulation. I think it would still work even though the egg isn't located directly in Shion's brain. Maybe not as efficient? Wouldn't that also explain his thoughts and emotions considering the typhoon which would normally be complete suppressed?
Ah, I didn't read the whole paragraph, sorry xD I think you speak of the pain and the eating noises he experienced? So, while talking with Ahiku about this matter, I mentioned that eating away at your brain doesn't cause pain. There are no receptors there. You don't know when you bleed in your brain for example. You would if it hurt, right? So, maybe the pain isn't caused by the wasp eating through the brain but because the venom that it releases also has hallucinatory effects? Shion could still experience the pain and the eating noises without the wasp actually hatching in his brain.

I may have been wrong o.O Found a publication that discusses the stress induced graying of hair:
http://www.researchgate.net/profile/Christiane_Liezmann/publication/7060213_Towards_a_free_radical_theory_of_graying_melanocyte_apoptosis_in_the_aging_human_hair_follicle_is_an_indicator_of_oxidative_stress_induced_tissue_damage/links/00b49525797be5bdf3000000.pdf
The stress they tested were indeed oxygen radicals. I haven't read it in whole but apparently, graying is correlated with aging and oxydative stress, so ... it should be possible. Wow. But I still don't have an explanation for his weird scar xD
