MC's with Disabilities
- MC/major character with a disability
- The disability impacts the story in a significant way
- No Dungeon Core
- Can be from any other genre/website, heck i'm willing to look through my local library for a printed book
- Preferably a Female MC, but optional
- Isn't immediately magicked away with a perfectly functional never needs repair or causes pain prosthetic
Shell Theories the Broken Magician - exactly what i'm looking for! The MC has a severe musculature disorder which causes chronic pain and affects mobility. If only the author kept writing. This is actually the story that got me really interested in seeing if i could find any others like it.
Astralfice - another great example. MC has really really severe social anxiety that impacts her actions and thus the story.
Flow - MC loses their arm rather early on, i didn't read too far though, it's a little to miserable of a story for me.
The Wandering Inn - The Emperor is blind and it actually affects things at least when he is outside his territory.
Creative Thinking is Everything I Have - haven't actually read it, so i'll give it a look. But it seems like MC is missing an arm and it stays missing.
Fork This Life - while very much a satire, and thus doesn't tackle the issue seriously MC is literally a fork and can magic some answers up to tackle that fact, it doesn't cover everything and at least for the first half of the story actually matters and limits his actions.
Halfway to Home - MC loses their arm rather early on and it seriously matters, like she can't climb ladders quickly or fire her gun accurately anymore. It's really well written and definitely worth checking out if you've got a few bucks to spare on amazon.
Wood and Iron - one of the MC's has some really severe burns and muscle damage on her arms along with chronic pain. It's not magicked away. Unfortunately it's also dropped, but it has a good 20+ chapters and well worth a look.
Edict - One of the major characters has to work through some severe social anxiety and childhood trauma and it's the focus of a major part of the story
Now a few that are only kinda what i'm looking for
Katalepsis - MC has pretty severe social anxiety and is also at the beginning dealing with some pretty nasty medication side effects
Path of the Whisper Woman - MC has to work through some really severe childhood trauma from abuse and it really affects her
Anyways thanks in advanced for any rec's you have!
Cradle. The entire first book, he is the weakest person. It's a Xianxia though and after the first few books it doesn't really matter.
He has some mental health issues stemming from his disability and how its stripped away his agency. These are things that he is addressing and growing through with the help of the gaming world to build back his self esteem.
