Hey, I'm a card-carrying member of the "Over-thinkers Club," too, so hey.
Yay, sleep! I did in fact sleep, and now I am stalling going to class. Yay stalling! >XD
So, ok, that makes Moon pretty smart, even averaging in poor Loz. Moon is rather Loz-like, really, so I'm guessing Moon's about the same, actually. The scientists hadn't quite gotten the intelligence thing down yet, maybe. And since Moon can read, can Moon write? If so, one day Zack is gonna hit on the idea of putting a little mini whiteboard or notepad around Moon's neck, and HOOBOY. >XD (There's always sign language, but that requires two hands, usually, and isn't as hilariously funny a mental image)
And damage to the vocal cords seems like it would explain Moon's almost complete inability to speak; even someone whose been choked can manage to speak a little bit. And would make a horrible kind of sense, given Hojo and the ShinRa science lab's sense of ethics. That poor baby.
And I give up on pronouns, I officially use the Chinese "ta," which means "he," "she," OR "it," depending on the character. Since there are no characters, you can't tell which one it is seeing it written in romanization, so HA. Somehow, it doesn't seem right to call Moon "it" when Moon is so intelligent and so close to human.
Now for dressing, because funny how going out in one's PJ's is not the best idea in the middle of winter. >XD
