#HSHQTASK019: SPEAKING — M A I
VOLUME & PACE
casually, mai speaks with a light and airy cadence. she speaks a bit softly — enough to make someone lean in a little, when listening to her. and in a brighter, higher pitch.
here is a close example (the person in the vid is one her sisters’ FC but let’s ignore that TTTTT):
her manner of speaking was rehearsed, at first. as a kid, she found that people would dote on her more if she sounded gentle and unintimidating. as time went on, it just became natural to her.
her tone switches when she’s serious and upset. it's curt and takes on a deeper pitch. it takes some people by surprise, because of how different she sounds. her tone goes from warm and sweet to steely. i imagine it can be disorienting when someone goes from sounding like they would never say anything threatening, to sounding like they won’t hesitate to make you cry. it’s the same when she’s speaking in a conference or meeting, or when she means business. she’s been told she sounds like her father when she uses this tone. she hates it.
VOCABULARY & LANGUAGES
she speaks several languages in varying degrees of proficiency. she would say she speaks central thai, english and german best, out of all the languages she knows. but she also speaks and understands mandarin, japanese and french, but not fluently. she knows only a bit of isaan, malay, and cantonese.
mai usually does not use filler words. when speaking in languages other than her first, she doesn’t use a lot of slang. she *tends* to use a lot more “sophisticated” words because she was trained to do so. but she’s slowly changing that.
it’s a bit different with her mandarin, which has been influenced by zhaohui.

NOTES: MAJOR spoilers for season 3.
1) POST CANON
Robb and Maddie are in the Philippines for their gyre clean-up project when they start having trouble with sabotaged equipment and mysterious underwater happenings. They suspect a local mermaid tribe might be meddling out of fear of the machinery, but with Robb land-bound and Ryn back in Bristol Cove they have no idea how to reach out to them. A failed attempt to communicate from a boat has unforeseen consequences.
2) POST CANON
Ben is still MIA, but Ryn and Helen find a box at his place containing all of his research on the aquatic stem cells, with a letter asking them to keep his efforts going for his mother’s sake. The research has the potential to help many and it intrigues Robb right away, however the cells are a double-edged blade they don’t fully understand and Maddie doesn’t agree on the basis of what happened to Ben and Donna. Robb doesn’t want to upset her, but the implications of the cells possibly helping with his transformation issues make it all extra tempting
